Gyaru Manifesto Meme

I've noticed this going around on some of the blogs I frequent and thought I'd give it a go.

Name: Memi
Location: AZ,USA
Occupation: Student
Height: 167(ish)cm
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Olive greeny
Birthday: May 8th
First Discovery: I was about 14...15ish. So 2004, when I think Egg was announcing the return of the yamanba (new manba by this time) if I am not mistaken? I saw some pictures from an Egg magazine on my friend's myspace profile they were mostly of  Natsumi Yoshida and she was just as cute as button! These are some of the pictures she had up of her.

So that really sparked my interest, since before then I had seen random pictures of yamanba and ganguro before but I can't recall where exactly, and my general reaction at first was kinda..."What is going on here? 0_O" So I will always be grateful to Natsumi for making it so this look was not so intimidating for to me to learn about anymore. It would be a few more years of mere admiration for this style before I would actually try this look for myself.

Your Gyaru Style: I seem to have style A.D.D. I do take a great liking to Amekaji, Rokku and some of the cool laid back onee styles. I also had a big thing for Haady style back in the day.
