Halloween in Japan

Shibuya Hime Gyaru w/ Hair Bows, Crown Necklace & Flowers

Here’s a super-friendly girl wearing the Japanese “Hime Gyaru” (princess gal) style who ran into near Shibuya 109. We’ve actually talked to this girl a few times, and she is always exceptionally nice.

We didn’t have time to get a list of her brands, but the last time we met her she was wearing an outfit from the Japanese hime brand La Pafait. Here, she’s wearing lots of cute hair bows, a large lace-and-flowers headpiece, a pink flower-print dress, a crown necklace, a pearl bracelet, and heels with flowers on them. Her shopping bag is from another hime gyaru fashion brand, Jesus Diamante.

    The outfit is cute, but that *hair*! Oh, I can’t stand that big, poofy hair that just over powers the rest of her head. Someone please help her, she’s being eaten alive by a hair monster!

    I’m glad to see a Gyaru with curves… when you look at the magazines, they’re all so skinny, it makes me depressive…

    Huh, is this the same girl as: http://tokyofashion.com/japanese-hime-gyaru-pink-la-pafait-hair-bow-lace-flowers/
    They have the same hair and some of the same clothings, but the face looks a bit different… Maybe she had work on her face done?
    Well nonetheless, she looks cute.
