Christmas Meet in Amsterdam

Holy shit, I'm... I'm UPDATING MY BLOG?
Oh my god.... maybe the apocalypse is 2 days late!

Haha, anyway, without further ado~

Yesterday I went to a gyaru meet set up by Kaoru and Rina and it was amazing. The meet actually started at 5, but a small group decided to meet up earlier to go shopping. I couldn't be there (not like I had money to go shopping or anything LOL) and therefore couldn't see Chelsey again cause she couldn't stay for dinner, but I'll see her in Düsseldorf anyway, so it's okay.

My look for the day.
 Kaoru did my hair again, but the rain and wind made it all messy .. :c

Blazer - C&A 
Shirt - Cool Cat 
Jeans - H&M
Shoes - bought at Bristol,
modified with studs from eBay.
Accessories - eBay.

 I really liked my coord for the first time in ages. I've been in a bit of a fashion slump and it was seriously affecting my coords, but I hope that's solved now.

At 5:30 PM everyone went to eat at the Japanese restaurant called Kyoto Café. Kaoru and I were late because of a lot of reasons, but we arrived at like 6, so no biggie! It was €27,80 and then you could order as much of anything on the menu. Wanted like 10 pieces of fried chicken? SURE. 15 sushi rolls? OKAY! Ermergerd I ate so much. Sushi, chicken, omelettes, icecream. I think I even had some duck!

Pictures stolen from Jojo

The food was delicious! *O* I don't think I've ever eaten sushi this good before, to be honest with you! O: I paid €33,20 because I had 2 drinks which were €2,70 each (expensive, bah), but €33,20 for the €60 worth of food I shoved into my mouth? I love you, Kyoto Café. I will definitely go eat there again.

Outside we took group pictures. Thank you, Pichi Pie for uploading them on facebook! ♥
Not even looking at the camera ;;;

And that's about it!

  • I've been rather busy with school (HATE/LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH ANIMATING)
  • Winter break started last Friday! No school for 2 weeks! Yaaaaaaay!
  • ...I have 3 deadlines to meet, though. OTL
  • I broke up with my girlfriend in October because of various reasons, but we're still friends so all is good. :D
  • Kinda sorta very really liking someone, though >3> I bet this girl is a witch because she is just abracaDAYUM.
  • Lost my job D; Need a job soon so I can continue saving up for my trip! I don't want to be in this country AGAIN this year. Even if I have to join my mom on one of her trips, I don't care! I want to board a plane and go overseas goddamnit! > A < *goes somewhere almost every year, didn't go this year*

Hey guys~ long time no see, haha!

I'm kind of in the middle of an unannounced hiatus because I haven't really been doing anything gyaruo related lately and even if I do, I cant be assed to take pictures ahahaha. Guess I'm in a slump. y u y;; College and work are sucking my dry of all my energy and having to get up at like 6:30 to go to school doesn't really motivate me to do any major effort to dress up. I just want to sleep as much as possible LOL;;;

I've got a gal meet on the 22nd of December here in Amsterdam and the meet in Düsseldorf on the 26th of January, so I hope that slump excuses itself soon! I need to kick myself back into shape so I can improve >:l I don't want to look bad anymore, goddamnit!

Also: once I come back from my hiatus, expect more styles than gyaruo popping up on here, because seeing as I like way too many styles to choose a main one, I'll just refer to myself as "WhateverthefuckIfeellikewearinggtoday-Fuckthesystem" kei :3 ...wasn't that called Aomoji-kei? I think it was...

Well, whatever it's called, I'll be revamping my blog and might be changing the name of my blog as well, but I dunno about that yet. Just feel like I should start fresh. All my other posts will stay up, though. (Ö v Ö)b

Gyaru0boy: Max Kornek

Yo~ This entry is gonna be in Dutch and I'm not sure if I'll translate it because I'm a terribly lazy person, am typing this with half-lidded eyes cause I'm exhausted LOL and because I'm actually supposed to write this for class. I could blog about anything I'd like and I was just watching Max's latest video so here I am. :3

._. ... and then I realized how much I disliked writing in Dutch and sat here like '...k'.

Okay, dus... wie de shit IS Max Kornek? Nou, de jongen op het plaatje hiernaast is Max Kornek. Een gyaruo uit Nederland die op het moment in Japan woont en daar ook naar school gaat.

Max is een vlogger (dat staat voor video blogger, voor de onwetenden onder ons) en zijn vlog is een life and style vlog. Hij vlogt dus over zijn (school)leven in Japan en zijn stijl, dat gyaruo zijnde.

Gyaruo is de mannelijke variant van gyaru. Geciteerd van whatisgyaru @ tumblr:

Gyaru fashion is a type of Japanese street fashion that originated in the 1970’s. Gyaru is most commonly referred to as ganguro, but ganguro is actually a subculture of gyaru. Ganguro was popular in the 1990’s, but shortly died out in the early 2000’s. Gyaru is a girly-glam style, breaking away from traditional standards of beauty. Dwelling on the man-made (wigs, fake eyelashes, fake nails, etc). 
Gyaru fashion does not fit with traditional, and media portrayed ideals of Japanese women. It is often identified as a sign of rebellious youth.
Gyaru fashion is typically characterized by dyed hair (which is often lightened to varying shades of brown or blonde), excessively decorated nails, and makeup. This makeup typically consists of dark eyeliner, and dramatic fake eyelashes; gyaru sometimes wear cosmetic circle lenses as well to enhance the size of their irises, to add more width to their eyes. Brands cater to this particular trend by producing fake eyelashes, circle lenses, and other cosmetics. Typically Gyaru are known for being tan, but that is not always the case.
Max zijn stijl binnen gyaruo heet 'onii kei'. Onii betekend in het Japans 'Grote boer' en kei staat voor 'stijl', dus 'grote broer stijl'. Geciteerd van whatisgyaru @ tumblr:

Onii-kei: (Highly Active Style) ( means older brother) Is the male equivalent of Onee gyaru. A more sophisticated visual-kei or gyaru-o look. Leaving behind the brightly colored hair, and clothing of their youth. 
Ik en vele anderen vinden zijn vlogs super leuk en interessant, mede omdat hij erg levendig spreekt, alsof je met hem aan de telefoon bent. Ook omdat hij een niet-Japanese gyaruo(meestal 'gaijin gyaruo' genoemd) is die in Japan woont, kunnen veel mensen... geen flauw idee hoe je dat in het Nederlands zegt, maar 'people can relate to him'.

Wat vinden jullie van Max? o:

Ik ga nu weer terug naar die video (° u °)/

Coords × hairmake

GOOD NEWS: My ear infection healed!
BAD NEWS: I'm in bed with a ridiculous cold and a slight fever, and everything is cold and edsyfgfvkjhbdvf.

Because of that, I'm justgonna post pics and not type much cause I really cant bring myself to type a lot at the moment. (; _ ; ) *shoves tissue up nostril*

On Monday I was blonde again \o/
Distressed my jeans myself and a lot of people thought it was super cool
so I'm proud of myself bahaha /egostroke

TODAY I went back to dressing host cause I was running late and host is easy to pull off LOL
The gal classmate I told you about one or 2 entries back (or was it the most recent one... idk) told me to leave my hair unstyled and bring my wax and hairspray to school, together with a fine comb.


Look at me being hard at work and me looking down at you like "The fuck do you want? >:l" because I'm badass as hell B) Photos courtesy of Michelle u 3 u

Life n stuff × 2 coords :3

Yo~ Naoki here! Currently in bed with a nasty ear infection

My ear is throbbing like a bitch, had a slight fever this afternoon, and the ends of my cotton swabs are green. Yes, GREEN. MOTHER FLIPPING /LIME GREEN/.   Didn't go to school because I felt like shit, but I went to work cause I care about 3.5h worth money more than I care about math class, because math sucks(and I suck at it too so lol mutual understanding), but I slept from 11-something AM till 4-something PM so I was pretty sick and wouldn't be able to go to school anyway LOL. Shouldn't have gone to work. It was terrible ; - ; My hearing in my infected ear has gone down by 50% so I cant hear shit if you're on my left and listening to customers was a drag.

I am sure that a lot of you have already seen it, but for those of you who haven't:


Yesterday the first issue of GAL VIP has been released and I'm super happy all our hard work paid off! The models, the columnists, the designers and ofcourse the editors put a lot of work and effort into this magazine, but due to last minute disasters, some pages had to be cut out in order for us to make the deadline and, unfortunately, my article was on one of those pages. But I will appear in the next issue, so stay tuned >:3 !!

Download instructions:

Password: galvip109 (no caps, don't forget to click the "submit" button or nothing will happen :') ) 

I hope all of you will at least take a look and even if you just flipped through the magazine without reading it, please let us know what you think + feedback by emailing us at gal_vip@live.com

International Dansou Unit 「BOKUTACHI」

Yo~ it's me again! (Who else? ._.)

This time I'm here to tell you that I'm in a dansou unit now! Well, I have been for a while, but we got a new member today, so I'm super excited!

International Dansou Unit 'BOKUTACHI' is a group of dansou josei/chuusei from around the world to meet, talk, and share their style and style journey! × If you are a dansou wearer, you are welcome to join! You can be a crossplayer, visual-kei, gyaru-o, or natural dansou (or all of them!)

BOKUTACHI is like what BlackDiamond is, but for dansou. We've only got 3 members (for now), but the tumblog and fb page have been getting more and more attention, so I expect us to get more as time goes by!

Our latest member, Makoto, made us a crest/logo and it's so bamf D: Look at it!

I cleaned it up and used 'stroke' in PS to give it a nice border because else all the pretty decorations weren't visible on Makoto's blog, cause it's black ; u ; I wish I could've make it smoother, but my photoshop has seriously been dicking out on me and it wouldn't properly let me edit :c I did the best I could (u n u);
What it looks like on a dark BG
Now wishing the bg of my blog was black or a dark gray because LOOK AT HOW BAMF THAT LOOKS, GUYS?! D:

If you're interested in dansou, please visit our tumblr page and our facebook page ♥

Gyaru Beach Meeting! [Picture HEAVY]

I went to the Dutch Gyaru Beach meeting yesterday. I had a lot of fun and met a fellow gyaru-o. I'm glad I went and I'm not going to talk a lot in this entry because I'm STILL tired as fuck and cba to talk LOL. My nose got sunburnt, though...

The people who attended were: Chelsey, Fania, Jojo, Amber, Estherbel,  Elise, Wesley, Nadine, Charissa, Kari, Tuyen, Tuyen's friend, Terry, Cookie Cat, and me myself.
We all met up at the central station of Den Haag (The Hague) and from there we went to the beach, the arcade, and a Chinese restaurant.

GalVIP + Dansou

(pretty much completely copying this off Akkun's blog cause it matches my thoughts perfectly)

I am now only writing for GAL VIP as the hair columnist. I resigned as a model because I don't feel like I'm ready to represent gyaru-o style yet.I personally think that I can pull off wig styling pretty well, or at least, people have told me I can. Both me and Akkun are going to do the hair column together! Speaking of projects...
Dansou Community

(click to enlarge)

Another reason I felt that writing for GAL VIP would be best for now is because I really do love various fashion styles. Gyaru-o is my #1 favorite, but in all honesty, I just like dressing like a boy. So with that said, Akkun and I taking the time to finally try and expand the dansou community to Western/English speaking platforms.

She started off with the dansou tumblr, of course. People are showing interest and that really makes me glad. Before that, she had created a Secret Group on FB dedicated to it and we were getting it set up. After enough messages came in to her inbox on tumblr, she decided to go ahead and open the group. It's still pretty small right now, but the few people in it do seem truly interested & that makes me glad.

Also, the dansou unit BOKUTACHI has been created with an aim to gather dansou from all over together to spread awareness of the style and just make friends!

Some long term goals include affiliating with other Japanese dansou units like Login. and Zone_a(lpha)! But we want to get a few more members first (hint hint nudge nudge)

Have me being a camwhore.

New games and new stockings!
Imma return HyperNeptunia, though. I expected way too much. :/ The game is kinda really shitty.
The stockings are NOT like the ones on the picture on ebay, but I already sent the seller an angry message about that. :l I paid for some realistic bones, I get this shit. >:U

Next post: gyaru beach meet!

Omg, a valentine?!

Thank you so much, whoever posted this ♥

You really brightened my mood since I was feeling ridiculously down before I saw this last night.

This really motivates me, you have NO idea. Bahahaha ♥

Okay, time to hurry up and get ready! Got work in 30 minutes!

Thank you once again!

My mom got a new phone because you know how after one or two years (depending on the duration of your contract) you can pick a new phone? Yer, my mom finally got a quality smartphone. Namely, the Samsung Galaxy III. :'D I'm already annoyed with it and I'd get this phone solely for the second camera and the bigger screen :l

Anyway, mom is going to a disco party thinger this weekend so she had one of her friends over to borrow an afro wig, which resulted in them trying on all of mine :') I wore my new blonde one and decided to do the hairmake I promised my friends like last week. (@ 3 @);;

 My Yukihide Sawamoto impersonation. :'D
Cause you know, he's blonde and usually frowning XD

Put on my long, black wig for kics afterwards. (Ö v Ö)
I like this wig so much aaaa 

Like the hairmake I did? :3

The GazettE: Division samples! ♥

As you may or may not know, I am a HUGE The GazettE fan and am proud to call myself a Sixth Gun. Sacha just posted an entry with a link to the samples of their new album 「DIVISION」that comes out on the 29th and I couldn't stop myself from promoting this album as well!

I'm really excited and I'm really glad the samples sound good, because they turned to an electronic sound instead of their usual sound and I wasn't sure if this would do them justice, but after hearing these samples... oh yes. ♥


Pride week! [PICTURE HEAVY!]

I revamped the layout of my blog this morning! :D Like it?

Last Sunday I went to the Pride Week closure performances with my two friends Denise and Lisanne. I first thought about going all dansou'd up, but then I was all "MEH FUCK IT. IMMA SLAP ON MY SHORTS AND SHOW OFF MY LEGS. HA." and attempted some Rokku because the three wigs I ordered arrived and I could wear the long one xD This was so much fun!

Wore a black cardigan at the last minute cause the shorts are kinda very really revealing(crotch wise) and you could almost see ~everything~ if you walked behind me as I went up a flight of stairs and NOPE NOPE. I took the socks off half-way through cause I got tired of having to pull them up all the time :l

How can I improve my style?

Hey hey ~ (o v o) 

The title explains it all.

How do you think I can improve myself, gyaruo wise?

I can be a solo player if I want to, but I'd like to have the opinions of others (Ö v Ö)

So, comment please, it would mean a lot to me ♥

Blue hair~

I reached my second goal weight yesterday: 64KG. I need to lose 4 more kilos and it'll be content ♥

I also wore my blue wig backwards yesterday cause I wanted to see what it looked like and I like it :3

The blue looks nice on me, no?
The pictures make my skin look darker than it actually is. Butts. :c
