The batle of the orange- Guidos vs Ganguro-
All through history, fashion had different groups of distinguished people that wore all-inclusive the same. Like emo saying they are distinct from everyone but dress the same, and get the same hairdo than everyone else. Or hipster being not mainstream but wearing the must mainstream glasses than everyone else is outfitting. We had the punks, the Goth, and everything in Japan.
Speaking of Japan, a lot of human beings remarked that Ganguros are the Jersey Shore from the land of the rising sun. I don`t affirm that completelly. Undeniably, there are some similarities, however as much as I despise the esthetics of this peculiar group of individuals, they are far better and more interesting than guidos. Right now, I introduce you to the my least favebourite fashion species in the entire world, and I feel the need to justify why ganguro is the least worst.
The battle of the orange has begun!
Ooops, that`s Victoria Beckham. The parody boobs, along with the fake tan confused me and I believed it was a guido with an slutty secretary outfit.
First of all, Guidos have no reason of being. Sure, a lot of fashion styles had no justification at all; except being amusing, make you feel powerful, sweet, elegant, rebellions, or any feeling you crave. Guidos look the way they display ... due to?eum...
They get their skin orange oompa-loompa style, waste a whole jar of gel and an customary of 30 minutes is needed to make their hair look spiky. Girls add some artificial boobs that looks like a basketball cut in a half and kneeted to their chest likevictoria Beckham.
I personally think that if you have to assault the laws of nature to get a look, you automatically are inelegant. If you do not look like a healthy human from this earth, you are not eye-filling anymore. Besides, if you are going to spend money and time getting skin cancer to look like a pumpkin , at least go the full theatrical way , fabricate me some chocolate and wear a green wig. Certain, your super tight t-shirts have so many logos and elements going on, that looks like if I've taken some hallucinative drugs while watching transformers 2 and 3. Wearing mini tight skirts only makes you look like you got dress in the dark in three minutes and put on a belt and forgot the skirt. That only looks well if you are athletic, which for some reason guidettes are not. Enormous muscles made out of steroids just looks unpalatable. No bright girl would go for that. You know there is a problem when black metal people with panda make up look more natural than you without make up.
Guido girl thinking she looks awesome looking like a brainless drunk duck. Or is a dude without the spikes?
As for ganguros, they also dress in displeasing bright-hued attires that looks like underage raccoon hookers, although they have a justification. More importantly, they have balls. They are Asian girls with bleached hair, and no Asian ( Indian, Italian,black and some latinas) cannot pull out white hair.Their skin is freakishly orange and sometimes brown like poop brownies. Their clothes are so shiny that makes it look like you are on a LSD trip in a flour color factory and they get stickers on their face. But they had the balls to go full theatrical, not give a fuck and get panda white make up.
White concealer, white lips, white nose tip. It's all wrong. But you have to have balls to carry that style . And if you are going to get orange and give yourself skin cancer, go the whole theatrical way. Besides this girls have a reason to be the way they are:Rebellion.
Kawaii is too mainstream and accepted to be uprising anymore. But ganguro is a kick in the balls to Japanese customs and rules. Teenage girls trying to be punk sounds more cliche than rebellious nowadays, so i guess this chicks are rocking the " scaring the shit out of parent and society" phase.
Ganguro girls don't care about getting guys with this look. They feel, smart and original and ,unlike guidos, they have the decency to keep this look only during their youth and they stop being ganguros after high school. Basically, they are teenager having fun, Guidos are adults with bad fashion taste. Guidos are ganguros that just gave up.
