☆59 My Gal Journey☆

Saw a couple of posts like this and decided to try! As some of you know, I've at least been interested in Gyaru since 2013. But I didn't start actually participating and dressing up until 2015. It was pretty bad...and I feel embarrassed to show a lot of these. But I feel it's definitely important to show others that we all start somewhere.


I knew at least the basics from reading blogs. Unfortunately, I lacked a lot of experience with makeup because I didn't really wear it before getting into Jfashion. And dressing up in Lolita was rare since I only dressed up for anime cons. And yes, because of that, my makeup and lashes were nowhere where they needed to be for gal.


In these early years, I didn't like to take selfies and it was super rare if you did see me post one. This time, I experimented a little more and gained a little confidence. Of course, since I was originally a Lolita, I gravitated towards Himekaji and bought my first few brand pieces.


The year I debuted as a Gyaru. I actually felt more comfortable in how I did my make and coords. Enough so that I went out all dressed up more often. I also attended a local anime con where I even got to also use a Cyperous wig which I got from a friend!


I dove deep into gyaru and pushed the bar for myself. I experimented more with my make and hair, shopped for all of the essentials including lashes and clothing. My whole being transformed and became more synonymous with gyaru. I didn't have a separate gal wardrobe anymore. I became gal.


I started following more gals from around the world and did a lot of research with magazines and youtube tutorials. I even got into more substyles after having gone from Himekaji to pure Tsuyome. 


Biggest transformation in a long time. I cut my hair and suddenly grew a strong passion for Amekaji. I was so inspired by gals in the style, especially Kanako. I still loved the other styles but this one really started calling my name and I couldn't ignore it anymore.


Most current photos of my journey. Amekaji and Haady are the way for me right now. Even my blog reflects that XD I feel like I reached a whole new level where I'm actually happy. 

And that's my journey so far! It took a while but I think I'm happy with the gal I've become. And now that I think about it, it really was worth it all. I made so many mistakes and got frustrated a few times but I never stopped. What was your journey like?
