Another edition of "HI I'M NEW are these things good? NOT LIKE IT MATTERS BECAUSE I ALREADY BOUGHT IT ALL LOL"

I love how she "lacks the time to hear" about how she's wasting OUR time, hahaha.
kekfal

EDIT: SHE'S SCREENING COMMENTS. I left this, for the record:
"What exactly is the purpose of asking the entire community what they think of certain pieces when you
a.) have already stated that you like them
b.) have already purchased them so any reviews would be rendered useless at this point?

You say the "hate" for your posts is wasting your time but truthfully, these types of aimless posts waste the community's time. If you are looking for reviews/opinions, ask before you purchase. This goes for your Amazon wig purchase as well. There's no use in asking the comm's opinion on a purchase after you've already made it. Furthermore, egl is not your personal stylist so if you're looking for opinions on things that you've already bought, talk to your friends who have pre-existing insight on your style, your wardrobe, your lifestyle, etc.

If you're really intent on advice, here's some: don't order lolita pieces from Amazon. Try the comm sales, Lace Market, or Closet Child if you want less expensive pieces and a transaction in English."
Everyone loves Rosarie dramu amirite? Not only is she a theif who has stolen thousands of dollars from lolis according to reports, but she is a homophobic rascist too.

Firstly the post that started it all. Rosarie throwing a fit about the length of Cosmic.

Next she gets called out for being the obese slothly slob she is by a popular and well dressed brololi. She throws another fit ofcourse.

Then the fun begins. She posts a bunch of rascist and homophobic secrets to btb this week and another shit storm insues.

Lets not forget that recently she tried to smear a popular loli's reputation while holding her shopping service items ransom for 200$. She even sent the costumer a bill thru paypal.

28th-May-2014 01:15 pm - Mary Sue?
Does anyone remember the LJ communities like marysues and deleterius dedicated to snarking Mary Sues? A recent rule-breaking intro post on egl reads much like one of those Mary Sue descriptions, so we can snark it Mary Sue-style!

Hello, I am new to the community and thought it appropriate to introduce myself.

You thought wrong.

I am sorry but I shant be disclosing my actual name.

If you're going to insist upon using silly outdated words like "shan't," at least go all the way and use the apostrophe.

I am twenty-two years old and recently graduated from university. I first discovered Lolita when I was entering into grade nine but that was only the official beginning. I was dresses often as a doll when I was younger in tea party gowns with matching hats, my great-grandmother gave my sister and I elocution lessons each time we visited and I have always found a simple eloquence in the fashion of my baby dolls.

#i've been into lolita since the ice age
Also, congratulations on your completely normal female childhood.
Protip: elocution will get you nowhere if you don’t speak in turn.

I unfortunately do not own the closet of my dreams yet but have managed to obtain pieces from Baby the Stars Shine Bright, Angelic Pretty, Bodyline, and a few others. I also dable into the more punk Gothic aspect by buying from brands such as Too Fast Brand, Living Dead Souls

gurl no

and others along the same variety. I wish to work in the field of Autism Behavioral Science but unfortunately need to complete my post-graduate before I can become serious about that.

Okay, back up. I used to work with children with autism as part of my degree process and it’s pretty well-established that people with autism thrive in structured environments which are enforced with rules. Online forums and communities operate under similar principles. You would think that someone planning to go into a field that places such an emphasis on structure would attempt to deduce the structures put in place in the comm they just joined before throwing caution to the wind and posting useless things...

I have two Pullip dolls and I suppose I should do a brief about my appearance.

Why? Why do you suppose you should? Why should we, a community of thousands to which you have yet to contribute, care what a random member looks like? This isn’t even me trying to be an asshole right now; I’m genuinely curious.

I am 178cm tall, measurements are 104-71-104, I have curly auburn hair down past my breasts and brown eyes. If you would like to know anything else PM me.

I’d bet money that she expected several PMs.

Update: So instead of just taking down the post...
" Useless Lolita

Hello, I am very sorry for this pose. I do not have any lolitas near me so I figured I might be able to find friends here. I am really sorry for breaking the rules."

Psst...you're still breaking the rules.
5th-May-2014 04:01 pm - Voldie = /cgl/'s worst troll?
Over the last few weeks I've noticed a pattern on /cgl/. There's a certain.. "troll," if you can call it that, whose general MO is to pop into a thread and start bitching about something asinine. Once it was scalpers, another time it was how people with long dyed hair including Violet LeBeaux are all lying about secretly having extensions (lolwut), occasionally it's just calling people fat and ugly and then arguing about it forever. The threads usually devolve into shitfests, and occasionally get deleted. "But wait," you ask. "Isn't that just like most threads on /cgl/?"
Don't worry, my frilly friend, it gets better. When people call out the stupid opinion, rather than baiting more, like other, more successful trolls, the troll starts yelling and screaming about basically nothing, while accusing everyone else (usually anons who are calmly explaining why their opinion makes no sense) of being angry and buttfrustrated. They tend to use the same really colorful expressions. And their last post almost always ends with this emoticon: :^)

Here are some examples of their work, if you can call it that:
Here's the infamous Tracy Hines thread. She starts off accusing Traci of wearing a wig, which is viewed as plausible, but quickly goes full retard when she accuses many popular and well known vloggers like Violet LeBeaux of secretly having hair extensions and lying about it for years and years, for some unknown reason. Fun starts here: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S7471386#p7473329
Here's where their ass gets called out: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S7471386#p7473536
They continue to vendetta-chan into another thread: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S7471692#p7473923
In a thread complaining about scalpers: https://warosu.org/cgl/thread/7449684
I don't even know what they are arguing about here but it's definitely the same person: https://warosu.org/cgl/thread/S7443010
Generally being a helpful and contributing member of the /cgl/ community: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S7511122#p7513222
https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S7458987#p7486088

The last few are short and sweet, for those of you with low attention spans. I know I've seen them in other threads, but don't remember which threads and my search for them failed. Now that you know, you've probably noticed them, too.

There's a pretty clear pattern here: complain about something random and idiotic and generally make irrational deductions. Call everyone who disagrees "butt blistered" or some variation thereof. Flounce with your calling card while high on your victory of making everyone mad, even though you were the one ranting and name-calling the whole thread. They also use the classic tactic of "everyone who replies to me is way too emotionally invested in this subject, even if they only reply once and I've been shit posting and arguing for over an hour" a lot, as well as accusing multiple posters of samefagging, and other crappy troll tactics they recycle. I suppose if the end goal is just to get threads deleted, it works, but on basically every other level they're a failure at anything resembling trolling, or winning, or whatever it is they think they're doing. They rarely deny it when called out for being the same troll as well.

I'm not the only one who has noticed this, in fact once I pointed out, other people realized it and brought up more instances of their asshattery. They're commonly called autism-chan or :^)-chan or nose-chan because of the emoticon they always use. For PC and typing's sake I'll go with nose-chan.

Now, I've been using the internet for a long time, and this emoticon use really stuck out to me. It's not a common emoticon. In fact, I could probably count on one hand how many times I've seen people use it before this troll appeared, probably because it looks incredibly stupid. They use it both sparingly yet specifically; it goes along with their final statement and generally seems meant to tease/enrage.

So imagine my surprise when I was browsing btb and saw, under the voldie secret, this:
http://behind-the-bows.livejournal.com/68386.html?thread=25415458#t25415458

Searching the archives for Voldie's trip, I found more uses.

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/7526344#p7527197
https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S7315592#p7318418
^Here's her taunting people who chastised her for wanting a Milky Planet replica. Eyebrows is Voldie (same tripcode)
https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/7320377#p7321431
Taunting again

Hmmm.
Is it a little much to link 2 people based on one emoticon? I don't think so. Because of the infrequency the emoticon is generally used on the internet, versus the frequency of how these two use it and how it's used, I think it is likely. But I suspect people more familiar with Voldie will be able to tell if it's her or not based on other things the nose-troll has written and stated, if any of those were even true. I know a few times it's contradicted itself already. A lot of the language used is similar, and she has something of a reputation for starting drama and getting threads deleted. Sound familiar?

So is it Voldie, a troll pretending to be Voldie, or something else?
9th-Apr-2014 06:04 pm - More Living Dolls on TV

Apparently Dolldelight is doing another living doll segment on an Asian-American TV show.

Dolldelight post(here)
Other person featured post (here)
And the official trailer (here)


Now all lolitas are living dolls, with yellow fever, and racist against dark skinned people.
I just don't even know what to say.

I know she's like a broken record but we haven't had a post here in over two weeks. ___ifwinterends on Bodyline and for some reason Taobao?

I like how her main point is that Bodyline isn't lolita because they sell costumes. There's a costume shop near me that also sells dance leotards, shoes and dancewear. But I guess it's not real dancewear because the shop primarily sells costumes, its obviously fake dancewear for people cosplaying dancers. Bodyline is probably above normal mall standards, it looks and holds up just fine. I always figured the "quality" aspect of lolita didn't mean you literally needed to adhere to couture standards for all garments all the time, but was more intended to just weed out cosplayers and noobs making dresses out of satin and unfinished seams and emphasize this is real clothing, meant to stand up to normal use and look nice. Am I wrong? Either way, I think we can all agree that she's definitely wrong, and that's what's really important.

Also is it just me or is her anti-Taobao rant a new spin on her pro-burando rhetoric? I've been wondering for awhile while anti-taobao is considered a ~lolitist~ sentiment cause I've never really seen anyone complain about it, and even some of the more hardcore brandwhores I've known don't have much against it. It's a good thing ___ifwinterends is here to tell us all that Infanta falls apart at the seams. It's not like there are hundreds of reviews of Infanta on egl or anything. She saw that one dress in person one time, so she KNOWS it's bad.
29th-Jan-2014 04:07 am - Pastelmomma needs to calm down.
All of these are in the span of a week.

She starts off posting her "wardrobe" which is really just an opportunity to post a large uncut image of babby's first Bodyline dress (with bonus amusing noobery in the comments).

Second post is about how she's *~sew punk rawk but nothing too dumb.

Third is an easily answered noob question but still people answer it. EGL should just make a collective decision to ignore posts like these, I think, or just leave a link to where the answer can be found. Or, y'know, Google. She also misses LJ 101 and I try to nudge her in the right direction.

And another super easily Google-able question about Dream of Lolita. Winter shows up and starts talking out of her ass about mostly unrelated things. Pastelmomma also continues to disregard the LJ commenting system despite my nudges.

Also farts are so lolita because I'm just one of the guys.((this is now friendslocked/deleted and since it was her personal journal I won't cap it but it was basically "lolitas are all sweet and mild mannered but not me! I burp and fart and swear!"

Edit: She found us. What better way to put your insecurity on display than "ahahahaaa haterzz soooo funny!"
24th-Jan-2014 07:53 pm - BECAUSE DOOMSDAY IS SO LOLI~~~~~~~~
hanyaan
I don't know if anyone else was around earlier today when I checked the main EGL comm on my phone and saw this spam post:

It's doomsday, doomsday, gonna get down on doomsdayCollapse )

I didn't get the whole post in the screenshot before it was deleted (that happened PDQ,) EDIT: there's a screenshot from the comm in the comments! The poster also mentioned that there was going to be a volcanic eruption at Yellowstone and linked to their Wordpress blog.

Apparently it's the same account but with a little 2 added that spammed us with this prediction of who the Antichrist was. Also: His skills in prediction are just as awesome as MilaNOPE's quality control, since 2013 passed with none of them coming true.
