Gyaru is mainly a Japanese Street style. Not many people know what it is when they first see it. When it comes to being a Gaijin Gal, it seems like it may be harder outside of Japan, and it really is.
Doing the more dramatic styles, like hime, manba, banba, even agejo, can be a little intimidating. You get all these weird looks, hurtful words thrown at you, and unnecessary attention from creepers. But it's important to remember that if you like the way you look, and you feel good about yourself, then who the f*ck cares! Hold your pretty Gal head up high and keep on walking tall.
It's hard when you don't have a good support system, like a Gal Circle, or a good friend/significant other. But if you think about it, when this style very first started in Japan, they went through hardships before the style got more popular. They went through the harassment and abuse.
Everyone has to suffer for who they are in a way.
People who are scared of new, weird, different things will lash out to the people who don't go with society's ways.
It's easy to get discouraged about being a Gal outside of the internet. But it's important that you dress the way you want to dress, and be who you want to be.
We're here to make a statement and to show the world something new.
I know this may sound corney, but us Gaijin Gals need to stick together and not nit-pick at each other. Help each other get better, help each other gain the confidence to do Gal!
