First discovery of gyaru:
Grade 10! Though at the time I didn't know it was Gal!
At that time, my very good friend Lee had shown me PARAPARA...
I loved the dance, but did not know the style was 'gal'
wow so old school, paraparaparadise 1 yikes!! gal style had already evolved
from these styles (because all the PPP series was finish and over with by grade 10)
I didn't dress gal until just a few months before I joined Bulaklak (march08)

Aww this is really cute! It's nice to hear about your experiences and thoughts about gyaru style~

I'd like to do this too but...I'm still not that much of a gyaru LOL

Lili said...

Oh, I love your meme, I'm surely going to do that. ♥
And I have that fear of contacts too! hahaha ;-;

Hachi, you should fill it out! Everybody has different levels of gal-ness lol I think it will be a good meme to look back at and see how much you have improved or changed your views :)

Lili, yes do it! I will read it :)
Do you wear contacts, or still afraid?

Hii.. I'm kind of new to your blog as well as the whole gyaru-kei style. I was just wondering if you could do a post about ur style and how you make it work on you? I read a lot of the gal magazines but the majority of the models have the type of body that I so badly want but definately lack > <. I love the clothes in Yoshi ViVi in Metrotown but I just cant seem to pull off a lot of the stuff. Do you have any tips? I'd be really grateful :D Thxx

☆shawna☆ said...

Ariel, thanks for your interest in my blog :) Hey, you live in van area? Cool :) I'll be able to give you good tips! I'll definitely have to do a post like this :D
