スケバン Sukeban~~~

Lately I've been totally obsessed with Sukeban themed movies! So of course this lead me to the deep dark wilds of the internet in search of great flicks. The more and more I searched the more I realized how many Sukeban themed dramas and films have come out in Japan within the last 4-5 years.

Which got me to thinking maybe this is one of the reasons, aside from SOULSISTER, that OraOra has become so popular among Japanese gals. I personally love the wave of "Bad Ass" gyaru thats going about. Not that I have anything against sweet styles buts its nice to see there is a more up to date style for us gals who are anything but sweet. Well as far as interest and way of dress go.

Along with oraora becoming popular I've noticed more young gyaru are getting back into the rebel mindset that gyaru started off having. Tan skin is becoming much more popular as well as flamboyant nails and clothing. No longer are they trying to be as doll like and cute as they possibly can. 

Im not really that good at making blog posts but Ill try to keep them coming...hopefully theyll be more interestng as time goes on. Thanks for reading <3

Its here! The very first gaijin gyaru magazine!! We all have worked very hard. I hope that everyone supports this new venture and help make it bigger and better.

To my fellow Gyaru...

Ever since the Gyaru style has floated into our lives, we often come across many barriers in order to perfect our look. 

Being foreign, has always been our downfall in gaining the respect, admiration, and resources, we deserve.

To those of you who are tired of just looking at pictures...

To the countless Gals that sit there in ridicule, with Gyaru Secrets at your back, and pictographs at your front...

To those of you that want something made just for us... 

We hear you.

Today I am proud to officially announce the first ever Gaijin Gyaru Magazine, GAL VIP. Because every Gyaru is Important.

First let me introduce you to VIP's exclusive Gyaru Models:

Each Gyaru was selected for their overall credibility, popularity in the community, and their unique and personal style.

If you would like to get to know them a little better, stay tuned for their fully in-depth bios on VIP's website.
Are you a fan of the AV Gyaru?  Don't you wish that they had their own magazine? 

We are proud to debut the first ever AV-Kei column, where our writer Rinnie P. will show you how to rock the sexy style, that isAV-Kei.
Next, if you would like to join in on the fun, you can submit a photo of your coord/outfit or makeup to our official email address.Your picture will be posted on our VIP website for all to see, and the best ones will be in our premier issue, due for sale inSeptember 2012!

Rants and makeup

Gyaru doesnt have rules…

I’ve been hearing this a lot lately and I have to say that I kind of agree. Only in the sense that there is no rule book stating that to be gyaru you have to do a, b and c. I do think that gyaru as well as other fashion substyles have implied rules. If there where no implied rules then why have a need at stamp a label on our choice of style? We would all just be “fashionable”.

OraOra Kei

Im pretty sure most if not all of you already follow my tumblr but for those who dont I thought Id post some information on OraOra as seen on my tumblr and sukebans .

Colors According to OraOra kei
Unlike a lot of other gyaru styles oraora gals tend to stick to about four main colors:
  • Black
  • White
  • Silver
  • Gold
These colors are found in every outfit, from accessories to tops...

Hi Everyone,
Yesterday I had a bit of good luck! While looking through the "gyaru" tag on tumblr I noticed someone  tagged their picture as koreatown. Sooo I snooped their tumblr, and turns out they live near me! Im so excited. We exchanged numbers so that we could get to know each other better. Hopefully we can meet-up.

Gyaru on a Budget- Do's and Dont's

  • I always make a list of the things I want. It helps to see them on paper (or screen) before just going around and throwing them in my shopping cart.
  •  Next I go price checking. Slow and steady wins the race. This step is very important. Nothing sucks more than buying a 20 dollar top then seeing another shop has the same or (similar item) for 10. Admittedly there will be items that aren't going to be as cheap as you'd like them to be, especially if they are trending. 
  • Buy ahead of the season, or right after. Every gal loves a good sell right? Nothing like stocking up for winter stuff once all the spring clothes go on sale. If you're worried that the item wont be trending by winter of next year, just stick with essentials. For example gals who like rokku fashion would probably buy a leather coat while gals who like softer styles would go for a nice pair of basic solid color knee/ankle high boots.
  • Don't be afraid of thrift stores or second hand shops. They can be your best friend!!! Prices are usually tons cheaper though you might have to fix a few zippers or replace a button.
  • *D.I.Y! I've recently starting doing my own clothing projects and its super fulfilling and easy on my pockets. When I go to thrift stores I always see a couple of items and think "Wow, this would be really cute if...". Finally I just decided why don't I just buy it and modify it! Dont throw away that old pair of jeans or t-shirt! Maybe they could be turned into a nice pair of shorts or a skirt. 
  • *I see a lot of gyaru , excuse the term, "shitting bricks" over gyaru brands. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE gyaru brands and would give my right arm for some D.I.A./CHEER but it doesn't make sense to break the bank on a couple of items just because of brand. There are plenty of American shops that provide clothing similar to the ones gyarus in Japan wear. Besides if you cant find it in stores there is always ebay!
  •  *The same "shop around" ideals apply for wigs, weaves, hair items etc. Personally I cruise through youtube to see what other people are wearing. Once I find something I like, I type the name into google and go from there. If you can actually go to a hair shop and see the wigs before you buy, I suggest doing that. Don't feel pressured to buy from that one shop! If you can, go look at other places and check their prices.

 I  realize for some people this might seem like an "well duh" kind of post but I hope this helps a few of you guys out!

*I will be posting some of my D.I.Y items and where I shop later on.
