Gyaru Meet in Birmingham

Hi all! Last weekend I attended a Gyaru meet in Birmingham held mostly because an amazing Gyaru was coming to the UK, so we wanted to show them a good time with Gyaru fashion, karaoke and all you can eat Chinese food!

I wore Goshikku Gyaru, of course, featuring a lot of Fernopaa! I love their brand and I end up buying so much from them when I go to Japan haha!

Lashes are Diamond Lash Angel (top) and Princess (bottom) and circle lenses are EOS New Adult Red from Pinky Paradise.

My make-up was inspired by this look of Amihamu's!

Underskirt: Bodyline
Over-the-knee socks: Listen Flavor/Okomemugi
Shoes and other accessories: Offbrand

Between taking my make-up and outfit photos, I put some of my hair in little pigtails but it doesn't really show in the outfit photos either haha! I really need to work on my hair for both Lolita and Gyaru... >_>

As the meet was on a Saturday and my friend Rachel was attending too, I stopped at her house on Friday night and we had a Gyaru sleepover with face masks, cake and binging RuPaul's Drag Race, then drove to Birmingham in the morning. When we arrived I met my best babe Looi, we went to the bathroom and ended up meeting another girl attending the meet too! There are huge ceiling to wall mirrors in the bathroom so naturally we took some group photos haha!

Afterwards we met everyone else in Caffe Concerto in Birmingham New Street Station and because the weather was so nice, we decided to get some food and have a picnic together! The original meet plan was to get lunch and do shopping but hey, it's England where nice weather is limited so you're damned right we scrapped shopping to bask in the sun together. Well, everyone else basked in the sun, I tried to grab as much shade as possible, cried over the fact I didn't wear sunscreen on my body and hissed at the sun.

We took outfit photos at this time, and Looi and I teamed up to take literally hundreds for each other - our aesthetic game is strong so we're dedicated to making sure we both slay and get good photos!

After our picnic we went to the Chinese restaurant where we'd hired a karaoke room! The restaurant in question, Ming Moon, has different themed karaoke rooms and we were in the 'Apres' skiing lodge themed room!

Karaoke was absolutely amazing! To be honest, I don't often do karaoke because I'm quite shy and don't know many 'mainstream' songs but there was so much variety and we all sang together for most songs, it was really fun! Someone put The Black Eyed Peas 'My Humps' on, and BEP is my guilty pleasure so I was like 'MY JAM'! Then we all absolutely let loose singing Bloodhound Gang's 'Bad Touch' haha~ The karaoke software had Korean and Japanese songs as well, so I got to sing Namie Amuro's 'Break It', Tommy February6's 'Lonely in Gorgeous' and Perfume's 'Spice'!

Whilst you have the karaoke room, you get an ink stamp on the back of your hand to go to the buffet too, so you can just go whenever you like, come back with platefuls, sing, go back to the buffet and rinse and repeat until your stomach is full and your throat is hoarse.

We had the karaoke room from 5pm-8pm and the hallway had a ceiling to floor mirror so afterwards we took more group photos with the whole group this time!

Everyone looked so so SO amazing, they were all flawless! We all wore a great variety of styles too, including Goshikku, Rokku, Amekaji, Agejo and Onee. Everyone suits their styles so much, especially Andrea and Amber in their super cute Amekaji styles.

The entrance to the karaoke rooms had this big throne-like chair next to it, so naturally we all wanted our photo taken on it haha!

The meet was so much fun and everyone was super nice and sweet. This has been my second Gyaru meet of the year and everyone is making an effort to keep the fashion alive and meet up so I like to think 2017 is the UK Gyaru revival year! I'm already planning my next look so stay tuned for more Gyaru goodness!
