Day 4 | 30 Days of Gyaru Challenge

This is the fourth 30 Days of Gyaru challenge!

Today’s challenge is:

A picture of a memorable night

 

The gyaru circle in New Zealand is really small, so we only had a few meets in the years that I’ve been part of it. In fact, we’ve only had two meets – one with Pat and Sera, and one with Pat and Delice who was over from Canada on holiday at the time.

I guess both are memorable in the sense that we rarely meet and dress up :>

 

But the most memorable meet would have to be the only one I have attended overseas!

 

This year there was a meet over New Years in Shibuya, and I met a lot of people I sort of knew online and sort of didn’t.

I guess it was partly memorable because it was so exciting to be part of a large group that were in alternative fashion, but also partly because everyone I talked to were so totally like what I expected them to be from what I’ve seen of them online?

 

Because my daily life and the people I am around are so removed from gyaru, I feel like the way I behave online is somewhat different from how I am in real life. I guess that’s why I was rather surprised that people were actually the way they were online! Plus, it was a really diverse group of mostly girls, with different mother tongues! Anyhow, it was a really interesting experience xD

What’s your most memorable gyaru evening? I guess, if you meet up with other gyaru often, then there would be lots of interesting evenings to choose from?! *v*
