New Gyaru thread, because the old one faded away into the archives.
Can we hope for egg coming back this year?
Anyone who can tell us how the revived version of koakuma Ageha looks like?
*no larme kei
most of the things tagged as gyaru on tumblr seem to be larme now, or am i wrong?
liz lisa staff
i apologise if this isn't what gyaru is now, but it's how i remember it from around 2011
Liz Lisa dedicates some pieces towards larme. But not everything as far as I heard . But I heard that Liz Lisa quality went down a lot since 2013. Somst already mentioned that in a previous thread
Where are some good resources for english gyaru style makeup tutorials?
Also, what are all your favorite lash brands? I really like Dolly Wink, but I've seen Diamond Lash and Amo brand generally around the same price range. Are they as generally as good or is Dolly Wink better?
Diamond Lash and Eyemazing(amoyamo) are way better than Dolly Wink. You pay the same what you pay for Dolly Wink but get 5-6pair of lashes instead of one or two. Dolly Wink is only popular because of tsubasa
Let's start this again, so I'm starting with my worst with what is currently on the gaijin gyaru hashtag
Side note: I tried to pick people who at least look like they tried to make themself look somewhat gyaru. I don't want to shame on these people but some are literally just abusing the hashtag for more attention. No ulzzang, larme, lolita, grunge etc and gyaru are NOT the same thanks
And my best (this was a lot harder than usual, there are so many ulzzang and larme weebs on the tag right now)
I always wishes I could pull off ganguro, I'm naturally tan enough too.
Unfortantly, I'm too fat (for the fashion) and my features are very manly.
So I'lll just have to keep lurking from afar. Don't want to end up like pic related.
Any links to shops with some good furry leg warmers? 90% of the reason why I love gyaru fashion are the leg warmers.
No, you really have to pay close attention to your undertones so you don't look orange. Not mention countering is important when making your skin darker. And blending the jawline out onto your neck.
MY advice, is to absolutely not use ben-nye, that is a huge no no.
First find your undertone. Work with it, find a nice liquid foundation.
Color correction kits are a big help to keep you from looking splotchy and haggard.
And then a contour kit for darker skin should help as well.
It isn't mine either.
Well it depends on your natural skin tone and on what kind of gyaru style you are going for. If you go far a really dark style I'd recommend facepaint rather than makeup since dark makeup tends to always be orange.
no they mean meitu, as in the shoop app you nincompoop
what are anons favourite lashes for rokku? I like to layer up twinkle lashes cute for top lashes
currently using small daiso top lashes for my bottoms!
things that make me angry are people getting into himekaji or general liz lisa style gyaru and not doing the makeup or hair and still calling it gal/gyaru like, stop it's not like lolita where its all about the clothes
Does anyone else also cries about the new style of Jesus Diamante (well it's not that new anymore but still)
Someone else here, but yes I'd consider her being gyaru. Her hair is done and she got the makeup. Her natural nosebridge looks pretty high, so I think it's ok that we don't see any contour in this photo.
I tend to leave the contouring (espcially nose contour out, because my nosebridge is high and slim by nature and contouring only works with a super thin ankle brush lol I only go heavy with the contour when it comes to oldschool)
I just bought these!! They're really nice, although I've already lost one of the crosses on it. http://world.taobao.com/item/20220754640.htm?fromSite=main&spm=a312a.7700824.w4002-673253035.79.iLXftJ
There are many substyles of gyaru, but the general thought of the fashion was to break the rules. The rules of fashion, the rules of beauty and general rules of the Japanese society as well.
If you search Hime Hime Star on Youtube I think she has a pretty good set of resources. Gyaru isn't necessarily a J-fashion like lolita though, it's mostly about having the specific look than following a standard set of rules. It's more open to creativity than I guess lolita is, perhaps that's why lolita gained so much more popularity because on that front it is easier to get the look.
Are any of you part of active gyaru circles?
This is old, so I think if we made a list of people interested in forming gyaru circles in each state or area, we could revive some of the interest. Maybe have some Para Para meets and so on.
I'd love for American Gaijin Gyaru to be closer but the comm is so divided. If you are friends with one person who isn't well liked everyone tries to talk shit endlessly, it's exhausting.
I want to talk to more gyaru but I'm not widely liked anymore.
pretty much what they said, they got well styled big hair, heavy eye makeup (not standard shape but still heavy all around) a good contour and a suitable nose contour
this kinda stuff is just not gyaru though
that hair could be used in gyaru, if the makeup was done up more, but otherwise its just a plain outfit with some legwarmers
I'd say it's gyaru. The overall look is more important than the individual components, which is why himekaji (barely) and rokku are part of the same fashion. Big hair is a must- you don't have to go for the crazy hime bumps but it needs to have volume. Makeup is super important, even if you're not orange you need to have heavy (but not too ott) eye make up and lenses. As for clothes, they tend to be on the skimpy side, but that's not necessary.
It's strange how much gyaru's moved on. I remember getting into it when stickers and yamamba and loose socks were still things, and even though I wear himekaji most of all I still have a soft spot for old magazines with outrageous makeup and flashy clothes. I used to put fake flowers in my hair and do parapara in my room when I was getting into it, lol.
I personally don't use them right now, mostly because I'm kind of nooby but also because I really like my natural eye color (green with a golden center), and have the advantage of my eyes already being fuckhuge. They definitely add a lot to the look, but I find that if I go all-out with the falsies I'm still recognizable. But I'm also still practicing and getting better, so I'm definitely not an authority.
Is there a facebook group for this I can join or something? I'm in Chicago, just getting into gyaru and I'd love some local people to meet up with. Any rokku gals that picked up stuff in the Alley closing? They had an excellent pair of wedges that I wanted to get but the straps were too big for my feet. But I did get some earrings and a dress (and some cheap as shit falsies).
The Chicago gal circle is called NEON. I'm @heymachii__ on twitter/IG so can message me if you want to find out more. I do the Harajuku Fashion Walk here as well so even if you don't want to be in the galsa you can still find other people who like gal/j-fashion
I wanted to go in the last days to the alley so badly but I was stuck in Florida after flight cancelations, I missed all the sales. I really wanted to get a whole bunch of tshirts, since I love them.
There is a tumblr that was keeping track but I think the Google doc idea is great honestly.
I had this idea for quiet a while now and I'd like to ask you what you think about it.
So some of you might remember 'thegossipgyaru' from tumblr who gave 'advice' to newbies and tryhards in a sometimes somewhat very harsh way.
Well my idea was to create a tumblr to give people 'gyaru advice'. But not in the way tgg gave it, but in a nice way. Also with the possibility of private submissions etc.
What do you think of it?
I followed you! I'm @TheLesbiGuide, it won't let me DM you unless you follow me back. And that is so sad!
My roomate's been to the fashion walks previously actually, and she mentioned seeing you in the past, although I don't think you've actually talked. Small world! In a way.
I liked thegossipgyaru, they helped me improve so much and gave me wonderful advice. I think they were only mean when it was obvious people were absolutely putting no effort into gal.
I'd be supportive of a blog like that though!
I never really understood the gossip gyaru. There where people who were the shittiest 'ulzzang' noobs whom she gave the nicest sugared advice possible and then there were some really good tries whom she/he/they just tried to drag down. Whenever I read her blog and she made one of those mean ass posts I was just like 'and now she's on her period again'.
It's my intention to give good advice. Especially in a nice form. I'm just not sure how to deal with people who are clearly abusing the tag. I've already gave some people anonadvice in a very nice way of how to improve their makeup and style and all I got was a 'this is popteen gyaru' on remote control. Should I just try it once with them and then give up? Or should I just leave these people out in general?
I think leaving them out in general is a good idea; if they're not even going for what you're trying to give advice for, then it's kind of a pointless interaction for everyone. I'd be interested in this blog though!
Thank you, I think I'll start it soon and the post the link on here. Any fancy name suggestions for the blog? The gyaru guru? The Gyaru Senpai? I'm sorry, I'm a noob with cool blog urls
It would be nice if you could incorporate that "gossip" part of it too. Sometimes I want to get all of my GG comm feels out but I don't want to make secrets especially because it's dead as hell. But idk people can be so poisonous so I could see that going south.
Let us know when you set it up or if you need any ideas/help
Can you guys all help me with finding a theme please? I've tried multiple ones but either the link was broken or it just sucked. I need sth with a submission button and a somewhat girly to cute vibe.
I tried it for the past 15min with that page...but I'm such a noob damn how to get a submission bar? I wanna cry. I know why I was ok with only having one blog and never wanted to make up a second one. Sorry, the struggle is real. I kinda want the theme of the gossip gyaru but the theme link doesn't work anymore
You have to enable submissions in settings! What about something like http://evilqueenedthemes.tumblr.com/theme37? You could make it cute with the background, sidebar image, colours etc. and add the submission link.
resident himegyaru here, i'm waiting on about 1k of la pafait stuff to arrive, can review for anyone who's interested. i have pretty high brand loyalty to them even though they(and the style) are dying out. also have some JD as well but not as much. la pafait just has this trashier feel to it that i love. feel free to ask me anything!
I wish GALEO would put more of their products into their overseas store as well. Or at least produce the things there in 'non asian people' appropriate sizes/lenghts. I'd fit most of the things size wise, but the parkers are way too short for me
