Gothic / Gyaru style! ♥

I have been really into the Gothic Gyaru style lately! *cough cough* influence by my boyfriend *cough cough*

Also sorry Ola for breaking your iPod XD

The style:

The style is Gyaru with a Gotjic twist. It isn’t too popular in both Western countries and Japan but you do sometimes get them.

Key pieces include:

  • Leather jacket
  • Studs
  • Skulls
  • Lace
  • Anything black!



The hair can be any colour from the normal Japanese black, white blonde, different colours and light brown! It is usually strait and can be backcombed.

The makeup is very natural Gyaru look, (less eyelashes) and with a hell of a lot more black eyeliner! Skin is nearly always pale white and with nude / dark lips and no blush to look more gothic.

Nails are usually black / red / white / purple combination with gothicy motifs, such as skulls and crosses. They can also be uber short.


Inspirations and brands:

The biggest inspiration to the Gothic Gyaru style is Non-chan! She is an Egg magazine model and is the full time Gothic Gyaru. Here is her blog: Her full name is Nonoka Iwata, she is 154cm (same height as me!) and 43kgs and she is just 18!



Another big style inspiration is Rina Sakurai! Her style is quite Gothicy Agejo Gyaru.


Another inspiration is street snaps!


The favourite brand is TutuHa! Shame they don’t have a website…
