GC Day1: When did you start dressing Gyaru?

Hello, hello~ ~ ~
I was sitting around trying to think of what to post since I haven't begun filming a few projects that are on my agenda for upcoming posts.  So I figured it was a good time to start the 30 Day Gyaru Challenge!
I'm currently preparing for the last post of the "10 day Makeup Challenge" series.  I'm really excited about it!! I'm going to try to film that as well.

But back to the topic of today's post!

When did you start dressing Gyaru?
I started dressing in Gyaru style in my first year of college!
It was 2012 to be specific.  I didn't do much besides attend classes back then, so I loved dressing up for school!
My first few attempts were of different sub-styles.
Mostly: himekaji, kuro style, and sometimes rokku!
Aah, it's only slightly embarrassing to look at lol
Every day I would draw inspiration for coordinates from tumblr.  I'd go to the "gyaru" tag or the tag of the sub-style I wanted to try.

Here, I was inspired by Cocona (aka Serina / Mami):
I remember around this time, I wanted accessories for my looks so badly!
I had fallen in love with the Kurogyaru look and the brand d.i.a ~
And soon afterward started my love for himekaji and all things frilly and floral lol
Over the course of my 4 years in college, I would switch up my style from himekaji, to onee, to rokku, to kurogyaru, and even attempted Amekaji, and ora ora.

I feel like I've come a long way!
Well, at least I hope so lmao
When did you start dressing in Gyaru or Japanese fashion?  What were your first attempts like?
I'd love to know about your experiences as I go on with this 30 day challenge!
