    Visual Kei is characterized by bands using dramatic costumes and visual imagery to enhance the band's performance.
    Members of Visual Kei bands often wear striking makeup, style their hair in dramatic shapes (reminiscent of "glam metal" bands from the '80s) and wear elaborate costumes. Although the vast majority of the musicians are male, band members will often wear makeup and clothing which would be considered 'feminine' or 'androgynous'.

    Examples of Visual kei bands would be Gazette, D'espairs Ray and Vidoll...

    Oshare Kei is a sub-set of Visual Kei that began to appear in Japan around 2001. Oshare means "stylish" or "fashionable".

    Oshare bands incorporate a sound that is influenced by modern Pop Punk while retaining Visual sounds such as rhythmic shouting, guitar solos and songs that are around 5 minutes in length. The lyrics, in general, tend to focus on subject matter that is positive, often about love and relationships. The clothing style is usually bright and colorful and incorporates Japanese street fashion.

    Certain examples of Oshare kei bands are An Cafe, Lolita23Q and Shelly Trip Realize...

    that sums up about everything 8D hope that helps

    all in all, visual kei leans more towards gothic punk style while oshare kei leans more towards pop punk.
