A new kind of gal style  
This secret posted on gyaru_secrets has been brought to my attention and I have to say I whole-heartedly agree.

With this in mind I'd like to announce that gal_style is no longer a gyaru picture spamming community, but a gyaru-related everything community. Along with the occasional spam there will be style critiques, style watches, advice, and general gyaru-related questions, comments, etc.

We'd like to encourage everyone to contribute anything they think would help the gyaru community, or just other gals, to improve.

If you have any ideas or suggestions on posts you'd like to see, don't hesitate to leave them in the comments section!

Hi! maybe some news about models, events, trends, brands or magazines? sometimes i don't have time to check out all blogs from everyone, I can't help feeling like I'm missing a lot... so... if we find some interesting stuff on the net, we can share it here?

i don't know, it's just a suggestion :/

That's a really good idea! It'd be a great way to keep the gal community up on the latest news. Thanks!

I'm not really gal since I don't dress the fashion, but I'm always updated on the community and I think there are so many gal blogs with tons of information that could be literally copied and pasted here if you could get some gal bloggers to participate. It'd be interesting to see how gals interpret the fashions they find into their own wardrobes etc, maybe have posts about community-related ideas/ideals.

I think it'd be nice to see discussions happening about ways to properly improve the quality of the community. There are so many secrets about girls running from the community and I think something like this where gals can get involved in discussion, ask questions, etc. would be great for them as well. Somewhere where they can access pounds of information from experience gals and sort of try out different ideas on the minds of the veterans before subjecting themselves to their great fear -- EG. Links to videos about makeup/closet/hair/styling ideas would be useful as well.

It'd also be interesting to see larger posts about the different styles, with the known and unknown experts of the community heading those off so that there's a cohesive ask department for girls trying to get into a particular sort of gal, or trying to define a focus for themselves. Still, I know that the "definitions" of gal types are varied and the lines are thin especially with new styles coming out, but it'd be nice to at least go to a post where, for the most part, people are on the same page. Each post could have a series of pictures as well, or a tumblr attached to it where people could scroll images of gals in that particular style so they can really get it down and understand it before throwing other elements in, etc. It'd take some tweaking, but it'd be an interesting way to involve the established gal community as well, demonstrate a level in the community which newer girls can try to reach.

Anywho, just a few suggestions from a non-gal. I explored the style for a while, but for now it's not for me. Best of luck!

These are really good ideas! Gal bloggers sharing advice and ideas is actually something I've been discussing with other mods. Thank you so much for the ideas!

I like ALL of your ideas. I'm a total noob, and I can use all the help I can get.
