Kuro Gyaru

When I was creating this, it was when I mostly spent my time watching Kawaii Pateen channel on Youtube and found Japanese kuro gyaru fashion. Kuro gyaru literally means black girl, that's why they use tanner and darker foundation to represent their style. They were really flashy and colorful like nobody else can beat them! I was and still am sure that it needs a lot of confidence to wear such bold makeup and outfits, which is difficult since not all society can accept one who wears eccentric things outside stages.

Generally speaking, I like how kuro gyaru spreads arund Japanese youth. It persuades us to be ourselves and be confident facing our futures. I don't think I would be a kuro gyaru girl, though. However, I would not resist to try it under some conditions. XD

Here is another version of coloring of this piece:

A Door Without Key

It turns out that I skip last October without a single post, huh. Why can't I just keep posting through the months instead of procrastinating?! Please forgive me.

A Door Without Key was actually made for celebrating my personal private celebration. How to put it... it's my celebration of closing a certain door since 2013 and not opening it till now (now means this post's date).

Obviously my 'certain door' is not as the same as this illustration, but this is how I 'design' it. The pink crystal thing above the door is inspired by one of the Barbie's franchise movies. *searching for the title* It's Barbie and the Secret Door. It's not my favorite movie, though, but who can resist Barbie movies?

I should've said this on July: happy second year of closing door celebration!
