Closed Poll for Ganguro Ashley

A while ago (3 days to be exact) I asked the readers if they would like to see me as a Ganguro, the poll closed with an extremely close votes. There was only 17 who voted (LMAO) and Yes, sounds interesting won by 1 vote. This is so sad. Because of this, I was a little reluctant to even do a FOTD on this.

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."
- Wikipedia

I do admit that some of them actually scares the shit outta me and if I do meet one in real life, I would most probably step a side for them to pass, but that doesn't stop the admiration for them. These girls got guts to even attempt something like this in public, I give them that. My parents would probably lock the doors to prevent me from stepping outside if I ever attempt anything like that on a daily basis.


No I am not going to look like that and NO, I rather be a nun than to date a guy looking like that, what the *toot* was he thinking?

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

This is so exciting and interesting! I am eager to see how Ganguro style would turn out on you. You know, we are all used to your fair complexion so it's pretty unusual that you want to try Ganguro style.

Anyway, girl, you will look beautiful no matter what. I am serious!

Aaah I'm soo curious! I didn't know what Ganguro style was...so when I searched it up...it scared me a little, so I voted nay -_-''
But after a while I searched more about it and I find it very interesting! These girls and boys do have a lot of courage!

And it's like JeanJean said, you are beautiful ^_^! Yes you really are!

So don't cast this aside...in the end it's just a look created with make up. If you do it and you think the end result is too scary or too strange you can still decide not to post it.
