Not really a rant, just more of questions and answers to help me move on: think of it as having a conversation out loud to the mirror then felling better in the end ^x^
I dont get these certain types, what is the point? If they lack the skills in makeup or dont want to take the effort and rather the style to dumb itself down to a popteen model or to a normal looking American girl, Japanese girl, Italian girl, etc. Why go for that look in the first place if it already exist. Why would I fly my interest into the Asian culture overseas in makeup for NORMAL MAKEUP LOOKS. Why? It is here already in the fashion mags and guess what the facial features are here as well so its easier for me to be a normal faced girl with other girls who looks like me in the magazines here. But for me to fly my interest across the world to find normal is a bit odd.
I can maybe tell you why.
The Gyaru name; The name and the popularity of the community. Get more blog hits, more people to talk too about the new fad and trend overseas, have something interesting to talk about because in their heads its a fad. But they never had makeup in mind and that is why they want to just do normal makeup and get away with it.
just plain lazy and need approval fast. They wouldn’t see it but just like here in the states the magazines will take a fad and make it plain enough for the majority because its “new” compared to jeans and a shirt or pencil skirt and a dress shirt or American apparel styled Highschooler . You think the gyaru community is bad? Try to be Goth with the way magazines portray it and join a hard core goth community; they would rip you apart.
Here is another reason; wanna be Japanese.
I don’t really have to explain the extreme weeaboo-isms
Thats three but why do you think these types of people want the gyaru title? For now im not really caring to title myself im just going to be all the gyarus-
Thanks to Olivia for this meme
And if I feel im pizza gyaru, then I am a pizza gyaru that day. Put some pastel in there and im pastel gyaru, I may bring back the fro gyaru, and sprinkle a little spiked gyaru.
What they dont see is the trend dying in the future, I see another udoli happening if anything. At least its easier to do tutorials now. I guess im still hanging on for the fun part because gyaru started my change and if it was what it was right now id be fairy kei or just pastel goth because its different which was the point of gyaru. Like those tumblr styles along with lolita there is a simple guideline to follow and with that its nice to see an army of lolitas walking past, even with the different personalities, colors and styles they still look uniformed and tight as a community (even with the drama). But what community dont have drama? I would love to know. Still, I cant point out any gyaru from the streets if it ever going to happen here. How can anyone if I cant? Lashes and blush? Even with a DIA belt I wont see it.
Whats the point of calling yourself gyaru with whats going on?
Its a simple question. Its like me calling my self gaijin in japan as to calling myself girl in America. “hey what style is this?” “Its the girl style!” And that is what gyaru is going to be. Hopefully the full makeup work out real gals whos into the art will change the name to something more fitting. Can we rename it Queen so at least they know it involves lots of makeup? OMG NEW TUMBLR TAG Gyaru Queen I think I solved my own problem and before you know it youll just drop the gyaru and call it gal queen or queen. Any girl with well made makeup is Gal Queen, atleast people would understand that here drag queens are a big inspiration anyway and gal queen sounds like a girl version with plenty of makeup.
GAL QUEEN STATUS
Still im all the gyarus.
one of them.
