First Canada Gyaru Meetup At My House In Toronto
During the first Gyaru meetup we talked latest Japanese Gyaru fashion, ate homemade sushi and watched the hilarious Japanese movie Detroit Metal City.
My friends who also have an interested in Japanese fashion dropped by for a little get together.
We watched some hilarious movies during the Gyaru Meetup. Detroit Metal City and Vampire Girl VS Frankenstein Girl, probably some of the most messed up movies I have ever seen but at the same time funny as hell.
Gyaru (ギャル?) is a Japanese transliteration of the English word gal. The name originated from a 1970s brand of jeans called "gals", with the advertising slogan: "I can't live without men", and was applied to fashion- and peer-conscious girls in their teens and early twenties.
In Tokyo, more often than not, a shopping center at each main train station is dedicated to offering the newest and trendiest items from popular Gal brands. Some brands are also reaching overseas by having their items easily accessible in webshops offering world-wide shipping services. Gal Circles (gyaru-sa/ギャルサー) are also a fun part of a gal's life.
