Its been a while since I did anything fun and interesting that one night it occurred to be that maybe a Ganguro look would be fun. JeanJean suggested a runway model look but stingy and poor me don't buy fashion magazines (Nyahaha) and even if I search the internet, I'm doubtful I can pull of their sometimes extreme looks and still look good. I'm no model, that's for sure. But hey, thanks JeanJean for the suggestion!
Just a little 101 on Ganguro style. Ganguro literally means Black Face Girls, think neon coloured hair, tanned skin, brightly coloured clothings, loud, loud and even more LOUD. Click here to find out what they are all about. I'm not trying for the more extreme Yamanba (extreme Black Face) look.
"Researchers in the field of Japanese studies believe that ganguro is a form of revenge against traditional Japanese society due to resentment of neglect, isolation, and constraint of Japanese society. This is their attempt at individuality, self-expression, and freedom, in open defiance of school standards and regulations."
To do some reseach on them, I went to whatever besides Wikipedia and Youtube, and watch videos. Watching some, my first thoughts were, "If mom saw me like that, she'll disown meeehh!" and after that, if looked sorta fun.
I am tempted to try it out to be truthful, to change my skintone for a day and look all unlike me. The reason I posted this up even before the FOTD is to somewhat warn others (who votes Nay, sounds scary) that a Ganguro FOTD is coming up and it might not be a pretty sight!
Considering that the votes were that close, I decided to tone down everything as to not give anyone a heart attack, no brightly coloured hair/clothing/whatever, it's just the make up. A cross between a Banba and a Ganguro. And please do remember that this is actually for laughs and not serious...
Also do check this girl out, she's hilarious!
Any debates on why I should not do this look, feel free to post up, I might just scrap this whole thing off :D
