Prepared to be stared at .. ALOT, most girls dress like this if their in Japan .

Mayby don't go as drastic as them , unless you want to get that much attention .

Try & go for a casual Harajuku style , like the girl in the picture =)

I tryed this style out for awhile & I bought these cute liittle "gummy bear" clips from the little girls hair section ., & I bought a tiny "princess" backpack =p .

Harajuku

IF you like Originality, Being different, standing out from the crowd, origins of scene style, expressing yourself in various ways, you may draw inspiration from Harajuku style



The term Harajuku Girls is given to teenagers dressed in any style who are in the area of Harajuku.Visual Kei, Lolita & Decora being the most popular styles seen in Harajuku, there are many others to follow through.



Among the different Lolita styles, one of the disctinctive trends is Gothic Lolita.

Unlike western gothic, Gothic Lolita combines the adorable Lolita flair with dark themes, heavy eye makeup, accessories with uncommon shapes, etc.

Gothic Lolita isn’t to be confused with Visual Kei or Guro Lolita, since Gothic Lolita fashion is inspired by the elegance and poise from victorian gothic fashion.



Visual Kei, meaning “visual music style”, is considered to be the opposite to Harajuku - a darker version of this dolls without resembling Gothic Lolita.



Visual Kei emulates, as it name says, japanese rock music idols. Early when this fashion started, fans mimicked their favorite musicians’ looks when dressing frantically and wearing wild makeup, along with intricate hair dos and even body modifications such as piercings. It is now one of the most famous styles seen all through Japan and the Harajuku area.

Visual Kei, is visual art, commonly found within the jrock community, it is also part of the harajuku style. However, I should know lol, gyaru is not considered harajuku style, it's in a category of it's own. To contrast it, i'll give you an example of gyaru.

Gyaru are known for their tanned skin (many ranges makes many various types of gyaru) and expensive taste in clothing. They emphasize big bright eyes (circle lenses and falsies), and small defined noses. I've made blogs on these already with pictures. But yeah that first pic is not harajuku.

There's loads of westerners that do harajuku style or one of the subcategories of O.o, most people consider them cool, and they're the more artistic counterparts of the western scene. The picture is of miyabi and her friends, i think they're from pennysylvania

That's not harajuku style, wrong information. This is essentially Onee gyaru. or Gyaru, who dye their hair brown and are seen as the stylish divas of shibuya and come in many different varieties.
