Hime Gyaru, translated from Japanese to English, is Princess Girl. These type of girls are seen wearing princess-like clothes, jewelries, accessories and shoes and act in princess-like manner in the streets of Japan.
The Hime Gyaru style is almost all pink and white: clothes, bags, shoes and accessories consist of pearls, flowers (especially roses), laces, crowns and sometimes teddy bears.
I am going to decorate my old pair of rubber wedges with flowers and ribbons to make it look like those that are worn by a Hime Gyaru.
I found these babies in my room, they are for the details on the shoes and accessories. I am going to create a headpiece for this style using pink roses, laces and pearls.
For my accessories! I was not able to find a crown bling-bling in a local accessory shop so I resorted to this carriage bling that reminds me of Cinderella's pumpkin carriage. The pearl-like beads will be used for my necklace and bracelet.
Lastly, I bought fake nails set because I thought I can't possibly stick teddy bears and pearls on my nails without destroying it the second it is done. So I am going to decorate these nails with nail deco flowers to match the entire look.
I hope I can start making the accessories soon! My friend and I planned a shoot for this style this Saturday afternoon. I have so little time to prepare.
Next post, I am going to show you a couple of clothes I found in my closet that are close to the Hime Gyaru fashion. I hope you guys can help me choose one to wear on the shoot!
What do you guys think of this street fashion popular in Japan?
