I’ve looked into various alternative fashions for a very long time… from nu-goth to Lolita, I love a lot of different looks. Only recently did I happen upon a style that I feel really defines me. After looking at the kitschiness of gyaru and gal, I started to be interested. However, it seemed to embody the blonde+tan combination I so despised all throughout high-school, and the clothes were too plain… but gyaru has so many different sub-groups to be interested in! Hime-gyaru started calling to me.
Only recently have I been able to start taking my new fashion sub-culture seriously. I’ve never been able to afford my interests in fashion, but I happened across some amazing thrift store finds to give a jumpstart into my hime gyaru life!! Then I decided it was time to get serious about hime gyaru.
This dress was a hand-me-down from a friend, but it's perfect with a belt and tights!!
An old strapless prom dress from my favorite thrift store. It's got a good color scheme
for a creepier or sexier hime coord. It's super high quality with a nice built-in bra.
This one looks even better on the body! I loved the print so much. Good hime prints are so hard to find on American summer dresses. It's lighter and good for hot weather.
I even found cute hime PJ pants! I was in need of PJ pants and these were too cute to pass up--especially for only a dollar!! I cleaned them up real well and they're still super comfy.
$5 lacey hand-gloves
…I've even done some tanning! Just trying it out though. I’m not crazy about it.
Nails are the hardest thing for me right now… Can’t spend much on fancy decals!! Wish I could though. I’m doing so well at not chewing my nails… >3< But I’ve gotten a couple cute stick-ons. Start out small…. Wigs next!! Gotta get a good blonde one.
What fashions are you interested in? Are you invested in any subcultures?
