So, last weekend I went to the 4th International Gyaru Lovers Meetup which was held in Frankfurt! I have never been in a meetup outside of Finland so I was excited and nervous at the same time!
Me and Kati arrived to Frankfurt quite early on the Friday morning so it was a really nice surprise that our room was ready and we were able to check in when we got to the hotel! The staff was super nice as well and basically only thing we could complain about was the lack of a full body mirror. If you are looking for a nice hotel in Frankfurt we would recommend Hotel Manhattan!
We put on some makeup and went to explore the city! I opted for some LizLisa and Dreamv cuteness for this purpose. I wasn't super happy with my shoe choice but I wanted to be comfy and they were decent enough looks-wise. I think the shopping street would probably be really pretty during summer, now it was quite grey.
I always know I have a good thing going with someone when they agree to eat at PizzaHut! :'D ilu Kati ♥ When we had eaten Melissa had also arrived and joined us for the rest of the shopping spree. I found lovely new leather boots and shit ton of stuff from Primark. Why can't we have that store here as well? T_T
We got back to the hotel, I styled my wig (which had gotten quite horrible during the trip...) and we went to Hooters for the pre-event, but I had already taken off my wig and lashes so I was looking really basic. Didn't really talk to many people nor took any photos so not much to say about that.
So here is my meetup look! I was so stressed about the wig and how it would turn out since I only got to style it the evening before, but I received many compliments and was pretty happy myself as well so I guess you could say it was a success! My shirt and skorts are LizLisa, shoes from Dreamv and I made the hair accessory myself.
I think this happens to me after all the conventions and meetups, but... I wish I was braver and talked with more people. Especially since everyone I talked with seemed genuinely nice people! Hopefully next time I'll be more brave. I did get to know the people from our table though (which was the lower right corner in the picture!) and all 4 girls were so sweet, I was really happy to have landed in the same table with them! ♥
Unfortunately all the pictures with Melissa and Kati were a bit blurry but I wanted to include this anyways ♥
We also went to the karaoke during the evening (and sung almost everyone out of the room with few people, lol!) and it was way more fun than I expected it to be. We didn't go clubbing since we wanted to get to the airport early enough on Sunday and still had to pack, but I think overall the meetup was a success and the organizers had gone through a huge effort to make it happen, so thank you Kitai and Kyo and everyone else! I hope I can make it next year as well! ^^
