Day 17 – Show a photo for every year (or month if you’re new) that you’ve been into Gyaru
This post is going to be a little embarrassing since I will post my earliest photo of me attempting “Gyaru”. Like many others, I was so timid in the beginning and didn’t really try to experiment. I still don’t understand at this point how some of my previous looks could even be considered Gyaru. But here we go.
I was still somewhat into Lolita but after reading more Gal blogs and becoming more interested in Gyaru fashion, I started buying some Gal items. Spent a lot of time looking around on Yumetenbo and Liz Lisa.
This year, after much practice, I decided to debut full Gal at that year’s AnimeNYC. It wasn’t too bad. But this definitely marked the beginning of my true Gyaru experimentation.
This was the year I fully dove into Gyaru. I found my passion for D.I.A. and continued with some Liz Lisa. I also got into more Gal blogs, EGG magazine and completely left Lolita. I also experimented a lot more with makeup and different styles.
I had a major setback in between last year and this year but I was able to bounce back. I realized that I am a Gyaru and I wish I knew it sooner. But better late than never. I feel like my makeup really improved. I am able to pull off decent coords. My collection of EGG and brand items are slowly increasing. And Gyaru just makes me happy. I really felt I come out of my shell with Gyaru and it really happened this year!
