What Does E-Girl Mean?

E-Girl means "Electronic Girl."

E-girl (or "e girl" or "egirl") is a term that originated on social media platforms, particularly on TikTok and Twitch, to describe a certain type of online persona. E-girls are often characterized by their alternative fashion choices, which typically include dark clothes, heavy makeup (often featuring dark lipstick, winged eyeliner, and blush applied in a unique way), and colorful hair (often dyed in shades of pink, blue, or purple).

E-girls are also known for their love of gaming and anime, and often incorporate these interests into their online content. They may use social media platforms to share their art, cosplay photos, or gaming streams.

The term e-girl has taken on a wide range of meanings, and some people may use it to refer to anyone who adopts this style or persona, while others may use it in a derogatory way to describe someone who they perceive as seeking attention or being fake online. However, the term is not necessarily negative and that there is a diverse range of people who identify as e-girls, each with their own unique personality and interests.
