She's the loveable rogue now.
Her mother, her sister, PULL, Tumblr, etc., she's waded through a tonne of shit and she actually managed to make it without having a serious mental breakdown. I can respect that.
Plus, when was the last time she actually did anything lulzy? She's pretty much reformed now, and don't try to get onto me about the shooping when a billion other idols are doing the exact same shit. The shooping was never the issue.
Actually there's a video of her doing the shoot and she's wearing a load of visible blush in it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVUOXDARU3w>>27585
They got to pick their own theme and props for this shoot.
I still think she's a cunt, she's just smarter than the rest of her family and keeps it under wraps (which, I guess considering the circumstances, is somewhat admirable?). I get the feeling that she, like her sister, is too narcissistic for a mental breakdown.
The shooping was an issue when it was absolutely ridiculous. It was a joke.
She's not fat (though I also think her weight is a lie) she just has a really rounded face I think. She's a pretty girl but really rounded faces need to be done up just right (with makeup and hair) or it can look pretty bad. I don't think it would be an issue for her in Asia but maybe it was after she had shooped her face so differently for so long?
and how could i have forgotten the fact she screen caps and stalks anyone who says something remotely negative about her?
yeah, dakota is a bitch, but not anymore than any of us here are. kiki is on a whole different level of fucked up
I don't even know what Kiki's end game is any more. Become a model in asia like Dakota? She doesn't even do "photoshoots" like she used to or try to get signed to any US agencies. Does she honestly expect to be scouted in the exact same way as Dakota and if she just posts enough low quality kawaii instagram selfies and google translate gibberish they'll be begging to make her their new gaijin purincessu? Be an e-celebrity? She hardly makes any youtube videos and isn't really that active on social media for someone who's supposed to be…idk, I don't even know what Kiki considers herself to be.
I suppose she thinks she should be paid just for existing?
Her nose isn't that big of a deal. At certain angles it can look sharp. She doesn't suffer from OC potato nose.
I think her biggest flaw is the lines on her cheeks. Happens with girls who have chubby faces, but really ruins the kawaii doll image with deep lines. Not like it makes her look older, but definitely isn't photogenic. Otherwise, she's pretty cute.
I used to hate Dakota, but I started liking her outta spite for Kiki. I can't stop the lulz at Kiki's desperation. Please notice me like you did my sister, Asia-sempai. She truly believes Dakota got famous because of promoting, but it was more the momentum of the internet at the time. Koots got lucky and remains lucky. She got a big company behind her and managed to get some important companies on her side. Koots is also way more suited for Asian beauty standards than Kiki. Kiki doesn't fit any asian ideals of beauty as far as what I could see other than being thin and pale.
Softer features. Cute! Youthful, round and oval shapes. Big round eyes, oval face and tiny lips.
Western idealized features…well, it's fair to think of Angelina Jolie as an ideal of western beauty, whether you think she's beautiful or not. She's got sharp features, a strong jawline, high cheekbones and huge lips. Kiki fits into a western ideal better than Japan's ideal. I mean she fits into neither, but we're talking proximity here.
You'd be surprised. They think snaggletooths are cute and youthful. I kinda agree with them, surgically altered straight bleached teeth are overrated.
It depends on the social class, age or even area of the people you ask. Some old fashioned japanese people think dark skin is ugly, then there's young people who use fake tan. You have people who get eyelid surgery and people who embrace their natural look.
In general the popular aesthetic for women is sexy and/or cute. I.e attractive.
Wow has PT been sneaking her some mochi?
Still, it's k to be a chubster in japan, a lot of people think it's a land of anorexics, but that's not so. I'm surprised she can get modelling work tho looking like this, then again what do I know lol
Ah damn. That theme's pretty cute but what the hell is up with that shoop. She looks like she has a gap in her front teeth from the way her mouth is opened. >>27681
More on the level of Leah Dizon I'd think, but she's a halfie.
I agree, I think Dakota's nose is fine, but with certain styling and combined with her round face it can look a bit fuller sometimes, that's all. It's still not a bad one.
If Kiki had kept a look that was more natural to her (sexier, rather than cuter) she could make it in Asia, in theory, maybe not for kawaii modeling type stuff but other types of modeling (though I'm not sure why she insists on keeping it in Asia). It's true that trying to look cute just doesn't work for her.
No, I agree, I don't think Asian (in this case, Japanese) are always as thin as we think, I've seen girls in magazines and the like that are kind of rounder and softer.
I think Dakota just gains weight in really unfortunate ways, it looks like it lumps up or goes to her face, rather than the overall softer look that's a bit more ideal.
This is pretty cute, actually.
Yeah, she's no living doll, but she fits in well with the beauty ideals Japan has.>>27693
This. People have some delusional idea that ALL japanese/east asian women are frail thin. Obviously they haven't seen much outside of popular japanese media.
File: 1417536584443.jpg (146.46 KB, 600x800, 20141117_bb1206.jpg)
the thing is her company wishes she was bone thin. Why they lie about her measurements and weight. They also claim she has a size 22 inch waist which she obviously does not have. They will either shop her thinner (In a laughable way) or have her wear frumpy large dresses or clothing to hide the fact she isn't as kawaii thin as people think. Also lol at their new trend of pretty much erasing her chin and copying and pasting clothes on her. They are not even trying ny more with her photoshop. I know it average in asia to shop models, but they mutilate Dakota so bad.
Damn it's ridiculous. I agree her weight is not that heavy but she doesn't have a nice bikini body and based on her figure, I doubt she works out a lot.
I'm always amazed how asian magazines have such tacky photoshop jobs that would never fly in europe (or the Us I guess). Like they'll touch up ridiculously the models features but overlook simple stuff (why are her fingers so read on op pic ??)
I wonder why they put up with the amount of work Dakota needs in photoshop, either it's because she's somewhat famous or it's because her agency has contracts with better models/opportunities and push out Dakota in it as a deal. Kinda like companies being "if you want this popular tv show you need to also buy this shitty one nobody wants"
Yeah, she really isn't what she claims she was. I know I have a completely different body type than I do, but I'm 5'3, 100lbs, and I'm much smaller than her.
I wonder why she doesn't just work out? I'm pretty sure all the other models are expected to and she's definitely self conscious of her body.
This. I don't know where people are getting all this "Ohh she's grown and matured now, I'm so proud of her she isn't a bitch anymore guys~~". Have they talked to her and actually realized this or are they just rationalizing admiring her photos and popularity? Hell, she still has yet to make a proper apology for her shitty behavior in the past.
All that's changed is that she doesn't go on Stickam to bitch people out anymore, or allow her very public Twitter to be her space for shit-talking.
I wonder this too.
I mean shes cute with out all the shoop, but how is she getting all these gigs.
I personally love Kota, I have a very similar sense of humor to her and I feel like a lot of the shitty things she did was to impress Kiki. Kota idolized Kiki in the scene days because she was the skinnier and "prettier" one. And Kiki has proven to be the shittier person with her even insulting Kota
for being fat/ugly. I think Kiki brought on the racist things too, Kota was a bit weeby in her scene phase and even owned some anime plushies, Kiki even made fun of her for it. I think Kota was pretty honest when she said she always had an interest in Japan, sure she didn't learn the language from Cardcaptor Sakura at five, but why else would she pick Japan over everywhere else that was giving her modeling contract offers?
Sure she made fun of people for their looks and said/did some bitchy things, but is it really that much different from what we're doing atm? I also can understand the excuse making and such, she made an idiot of herself on the internet and was to ashamed to admit it. Kiki acting like she never did anything and she was love and light her entire life is much more annoying than a half assed apology.>>27752
I agree with this anon. Other than Charms claiming Kota was abused physically and mentally by Kiki and Cathy. Could you imagine having to have Kiki as your older sister and only friend? Kiki is so self centered and narcissistic she most likely never listens to what anyone else has to say. And if you're having problems, imagine talking to Kiki about them and have her make everything
In the video where Dakota says lesbians are gross, you see Kiki continually making fun of Dakota for being a Dyke and you can see how uncomfortable Dakota is with that. Dakota, being the fatter, unpopular sister was always left at home or playing side kick to Kiki's bitchfests. And how old was Dakota? 13? (or 11 like her agents trying to shedding off years. kek). Dumbass teenagers are usually shit tier personalities. Kiki was an extreme and Dakota followed as best she could. Now, that may not excuse Dakota for saying homphobic and racist shit without a proper apology, but, at this point, who should care? Koots is now the outcast amongst the moon people of Japan. I"m sure she has better perspective, I'm sure she's shitty, but I like her sense of humor. I find it amusing that she misuses Japanese gender roles to sound like some hulked out American man. While that's really weird in Japan, I think it's a hilarious gimmic. It also shows that she doesn't necessarily try to keep up with the kawaii image in the public eye constantly.
I'm kinda high right now, but I like Koots. She's okay looking without shop. Her shops are pretty hilariously bad, but sometimes she models some cute shit. I'm glad that SHE'S the sister to gain fame, while kiki is at home taking care of cats and blogging about vegan mochi or whatever she does these days.
File: 1417568957523.png (247.81 KB, 385x512, lies.png)
13%? she wishes.
Bruh I second this.
She has a cute everything and her gimmick is funny as hell.
A lot of people think she's actually a closeted lesbian, which would make sense because she would always use lesbian as an insult and talk about how gross they are. I think she used to say that stuff all the time because she wanted to believe it herself and she wanted to impress her family.>>27843
And I third this, I thought it was hilarious when she kawaiified a picture of vomit.
Kota may not be a kawaii petite living doll, but she'll always be a qt in my book.
I dunno. I was called a lesbian by a lot of people just because I was insecure and a late bloomer when it came to interest in guys. I was intimidated, but I didn't turn out gay. She might be, but that's as solid as her NOT being gay.
Oh the kawaii vomit! I remember reading posts on PULL pissing all over Dakota for that when I thought it was gross and hilarious. Dakota has a more masculine type of humor so it makes sense she'll use masculine ways of talking. While it's inappropriate in Japanese culture and somewhat doesn't make sense, I find it endearing almost. Even Tsubasa (I think that's that Candydoll creator idol person's name) remarked on how hilarious Dakota's way of talking is. Even a native speaker can at least understand that it's funny despite being unusual then I think Dakota got a pretty cool niche way of defining herself despite that moronic dolly shit.
I"ve read a few blog posts on people who met Dakota. Despite insults saying she piles on make and its super caked on, they also say she's quite petite. No way in hell she's under 100lbs (personal opinion), but she's still itty. She's just got belly fat and is sorta squishy looking.
I hate to white knight so fucking much. I'm not from PULL and I think I started to root for Dakota when I realized that all the girls from PULL were actually JEALOUS! Not all members, but many did the same kawaii dolly bullshit and harped on every detail of Dakota that wasn't perfect. Meanwhile they'd post their ugguu shit all over the forums. Dumb bitches. You can hate Dakota for being an ignorant white girl from a shitty family that photoshopped herself into mediocre fame, but once you start hating her because you think you're more kawaii, then Dakota is suddenly the better person. Because she made it and a portion of PULL is still taking shitty photos in their dirty rooms with tons of "made in china" pokemon unicorns.
excuse the shit grammar. still high.
Anyways I'm sick of defending Koots. Maybe we can spam more photos of the hilarious photoshop disasters. I always love a particular campaign's take on her chin. Will they leave it? Shave it? Narrow it? Oh the possibilities!
File: 1417574828377.gif (1.97 MB, 370x208, qvQ9cVU.gif)
I like Koots because the more people who give her attention, the more Kiki dies inside.
I was the same, I just thought it could make sense.
I love that too! I think Dakota's one of the most original "snowflakes" I know of tbh. Everyone on pull likes to go on about how "unoriginal" kota is whenever people attack them or someone they want to replace Kota, like Taylor R for example. I feel like even without the shooping, Kota would be pretty popular now. She had great/interesting style and a very interesting personality. I would love to meet her and talk to her, she seems like she'd be fun to hang out with. Too bad I wasn't around during the early tumblr days, she had an aim on her tumblr where you could talk to her.
And I feel you, I thought I was going to get attacked for white knighting her. I really hate those types of bitches on pull and I never understood why they would want to be known on a forum for talking shit on people. That's pretty much the opposite of the "cute, sweet, innocent" persona all these girls have.>>27859
Same, hahaa. Part of me wants to troll Kiki and ask to interview her for a popular blog or something, and then just ask her a bunch of questions about Kota and her success, lol. Or just tweet her about Dakota, she gets so livid when people fawn over Dakota instead of her.
File: 1417575740623.gif (1.51 MB, 250x250, AXPG8rR.gif)
Please tweet jealousy inducing inquiries of Dakota's wonderful success to Kiki.
It would be…topkek..

>>27851>I think I started to root for Dakota when I realized that all the girls from PULL were actually JEALOUS!Thank you
now that somebody else has said it, I can finally let this out. I became mega turned-off by PULL when I started seeing how a number of jealous bitches were running amuck in there. Like look at this screenshot..
>Dakota victimized girls for years
LMAO are you seeing this? This girl was SO affected by Dakota's ~unholy beauty~ that when she found out it was fake!11 she considered it victimization of girls. Like how dare she post such pretty pictures, knowingly making us girls feel inferior, but not even she
looks like that?? She deserves to end up selling her nudes in exchange for PS secrets for what she did!1
There are a shit ton of other examples. Like some from the user jocelynmarie who could.not see anyone say anything nice about her, cause she'd swoop in and insult both Dakota and the user.

Funny thing is, they PULL goes head over heels over all the over-shooped Singapore bloggers who, imho, have shittier personalities than Kooter ever had.
She just curses and has sort of a gruff sound to her way of speaking. No femininity whatsoever (which I think is fine).
When speaking in Japanese, she often uses male language (in case you don't know much about the language; there are words specifically used by each sex in many cases. She often uses words spoken only by Japanese men.)
Like what >>27903
said, she uses male language, for example, she uses 僕(boku) which is a manly way to say "I/me" and だ(da) at the end of her sentences which is a more forceful/manly way to state things, it's kind of like です(desu) but です is humble/honorific.
I agree. I think the people on PULL dislike Kota because she is just an average (though I actually think she's fairly cute, shoop or no) white girl from Florida who managed to make it in Japan, while the SG bloggers are Asians so they can do no wrong because ASIA!!! I don't think it's necessarily limited to PULL either…a lot of people in the Jfashion community will have nothing negative to say about any East Asian models or personalities but tear apart black and white girls.
People say they like(d) Xiaxue because of her openness about shooping and unapologetic personality but, yeah, you could really say the same thing about so many other e-celebrities and only the non-Asian ones get called out.>>27903>>27906
That's what I thought you meant! Thanks.
File: 1417590773097.jpg (217.59 KB, 1138x1600, 鈴東（ローラ）206.jpg)
In Japan there is a specialised way of speaking referred to as keigo, which is basically ultra-polite version. It's remembering your pleases and thank you's ramped up to a whole new level where forgetting a single desu can be the difference between basic politeness and you sounded liking an uncultured barbarian.
タメ口 / tamekuchi, or ため語 / tamego (literally equal speech / equal language) is a form of speech in Japan by which a person addresses and speaks to those around her as if they were equals, i.e. as others mentioned, using pronouns such as "ore" and "boku", ending her sentences with "da".
It's funny to the Japanese because she projects herself as this dainty, pure and clean living doll and the way she speaks is the equivalent to her walking onto a shoot and being like "alright u scallies time to get on wiv the days graft, u watch ur mowf son".
Tamekuchi is actually past of the reason Rolla managed to become so popular in Japan so when you Google it a few images of her pop up.
If there's one thing the Japanese adore it's a gimmick.
I used to think like that but then realized how stupid that logic is.>>27731>>27744>>27747
This. Though she's cute sometimes.
I don't remember the girl calling her stuck up and rude, posting something like that on a model's blog would've been social suicide.
part of being a model is making good connections with the staff you work with. even if the photographer or one of the other models behaves like a complete ass, you don't point it out publicly and you certainly don't write about it in your personal blog if you ever want to work with those people again. esp. in japan.
from what I remember, the model just said that she touched up her make-up a lot and wouldn't let anyone else do it for her, and she was kind of stand-offish.
It's obviously not the same people making all those posts, retards.
And have you considered the idea that PULL has both retarded extremes and people are equally annoyed by them?
And literally right after that>Not all members
Now stop being an autist.
Me too. I don't think we have to worry about Dakota, when she first came to Japan, people predicted she would maybe
last a year there, at most, and then fade into obscurity. I could see Dakota being a lot like Tsubasa in the future, I'm pretty sure she talked about having a clothing line after she's finished modeling. And if all else fails, she could get a spouse visa. Kota's a smart girl, she'll figure out some way to stay in Japan.
I think I know what bothers me so much about her looks. It's her skin tone with her hair color. I think she either needs to lighten her hair or darken it.
Lightening might be better because if she darkens it, the thinness of her hair might show more.
And the tags of this video:

Yeah, her nose looks super bad in this.
Interesting to see a different room, but it still looks bare/uneven.
I can understand that though. I started using tumblr at age 12, and boy, oh boy.
I ended up going to an ED clinic 2 years laterc. Obviously I had internal issues before tumblr, but I really was too naive to understand that most my thinspo queens were just shooped.
Give one example of an none asian e-celebrity that is open about shooping and has an unapologetic personality that gets shat on?
I can't think of any.

Reminds me of Hanyuu
Sorry this is O/T but does any anon here know where I can find a tutorial on cutting my hair to look like Kota's does here? Like, the side layers/fringe she has going on.
I know there's an anon here who's a hair stylist…
Yeah, it's not the actual cover if you compare it to other Popteen magazines. According to >>30406
this is the actual cover for the issue: http://40.media.tumblr.com/e126a5c7241e8ff054ab6832e4f03f73/tumblr_ncs1tvV1uh1ryozilo1_500.png
File: 1418872895837.jpg (74.66 KB, 600x800, Bz_rKTBCMAAkJds.jpg)
I think this is her worst photo from this year.
Late to the party, but she's not even in the Liz Lisa x My Melody mook. It's Yui Kanno and a bunch of other Japanese models. She's not even mentioned in it. So that can't be what's keeping her busy - but she's still BARELY in Popteen at all.
I'm also going to be that shitty anon who has info but is reluctant to give the source, so you can choose whether you believe me or not, I guess. I heard she lives with her BF, and he's actually around 30-ish years old? But when they met he lied about his age and said he was younger and then she decided to stay with him anyways… Also, she really is 19.
File: 1418876348726.jpg (64.32 KB, 768x768, 32532.jpg)
For not being in it I see her quite a lot.
File: 1418877030776.jpg (114.21 KB, 768x1024, 353.jpg)
Plus she was also modeling for Ank Rouge and Syrup recently besides some puricura machine again.
Meh, I knew that people wouldn't believe, but believe what you will! It's all just stupid internet drama anyway, haha.>>30468
What I got was the Liz Lisa 15th Anniversary mook that celebrates the collab. She's not even mentioned. Kinda weird.http://www.sanrio.co.jp/news/mm-lizlisa15th-mook-20141002/>>30470
The Purikura machine photos were taken back late spring/early summer. It's why she went to Osaka. And that Ank Rouge ad is from Popteen, not Ank Rouge itself. Though she did visit their store and do that interview with Okarie, though! So maybe she's doing more shoots for them now?
To me, it seems like Kota wants nothing to do with Kiki now. Kota's much happier now, she actually has a social life and does things other than shoop her photos/videos and listen to Kiki talk about herself all day. I mean, Kiki seems like that friend you have who only comes to you only when they
need you or when they
want to talk about themselves and then completely dumps you when they get in a relationship or find a cooler friend. I highly doubt Kiki gave a shit enough to hear when Kota wanted to talk about, unless it was something bitchy about someone h8ing on her or that she hated. This is all my speculation though, but I feel as if I'm right based off of Kota ignoring Kiki, Kota briefly unfollowed Kiki on twitter , and Kota took down the Audrey Kawasaki print that Kiki gave her. I know Kota followed Kiki back and I think she put the portrait back on her wall, but Kota could be trying to move on from that family and Kiki/Cathy could be clinging onto Kota hard. Who else is she going to try to get famous in Japan off of if Kota wants nothing to do with her? I've been in an experience with a desperate person clinging onto me, manipulating me into talking to them/letting them brag about me/etc, Kiki seems to be that desperate or at least she's becoming that desperate.
Yeah, their relationship doesn't seem great, from an outsider perspective anyway. They hardly ever seem to speak to each other, I mean, they could well be in contact a lot privately but you'd think Kiki would want to be seen talking to Dakota. Also, seeing as Kiki has no job and does nothing all day and is desperate to be an ~aidoru, you'd think she could go and stay with Dakota in glorious Nippon for a few months and she could hook her up with some contacts or something.
I wonder if it's because Kiki is buttmad jealous and pushing Dakota away or because Dakota wants to distance herself. Maybe a bit of both?
No problem!>>30511>you'd think she could go and stay with Dakota in glorious Nippon for a few months and she could hook her up with some contacts or something.
I think this also tells how bad their relationship is, I mean, if Dakota wanted to, she could easily get Kiki the popularity she so desperately desires. All she would have to do is introduce her to some people, put her into a couple videos, maybe mention her in interviews, etc.>I wonder if it's because Kiki is buttmad jealous and pushing Dakota away or because Dakota wants to distance herself. Maybe a bit of both?
It seems to me Kiki tries to contact Dakota and stuff. From time to time Kiki would tweet to Dakota and get completely ignored. For example, when Kota posted that gun pic a while back, Kiki tweeted to Kota and got ignored. I feel like the only reason Kiki wasn't ignored recently when she tweeted Kota is because she either somehow got a hold of Kota's account, or because Kota would much rather stay on Kiki's good side since she'll have to be around her when she gets her visa renewed. I feel like Kiki would try "accidentally" hitting Kota in the face, cutting all her hair off, etc, to sabotage her if it weren't for the hope Kota would make her famous. Kiki also sent that Audrey Kawasaki print for her birthday, what did Kota even send her for her birthday?
I know that we don't see everything, but they used to be so close. I don't think Kota being very secretive is an excuse for it, I mean I'm the exact same way as her, but if you looked at my social networking sites, you could easily tell who I'm close to even though I rarely post publicly ever about them. Kota doesn't even like/favorite any of Kiki's pictures/tweets, Kiki literally gets no acknowledgement from her.
I feel like if Kota and Kiki were on good terms, Kiki wouldn't have to make up fake Japanese people in Japan to send her vegan Japanese snacks. Especially since Kota is vegan and would have access and knowledge of vegan Japanese snacks. But even despite that, considering Kiki will post gifts from other people (no matter how small/shitty/from the local AsianMart they are), she has never posted about any sort of gift from Kota. She never even mentions Kota. You would think that if she did get anything from Kota she would brag about her kawaii Japanese gifts.
It kinda sucks and I'm sure they haven't cut ties completely or anything (hard to cut ties completely with family) but I have to agree with the other anon who has suggested they are probably on okay terms since Kota has to stay with them when her visa expires. I'm positive there was some ruckus and Kota likely told Cathy and Kiki to stay out of her career because it's an actual real career in real life that has real consequences when dramu and lawlsuits are introduced.
Kiki is DEFINITELY jealous of Kota, and I'm not even sure how anyone could pretend otherwise, and Cathy is probably bitter because Kota is the interesting one with the fun life and wants nothing to do with her and Kiki just like pole dance 101s in her room and tweets about Buddhism all day.
Kota unfollowed Kiki on May 10th of this year, and Kiki unfollowed her back until they randomly decided to follow each other again. Here's a link to when it happened:http://prettyuglylittleliar.freeforums.org/post137719.html#p137719
And Kota took down the painting around the same time as you can see in these videos:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygjYGywjGbchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IN_NPqNzs6g
Even though I do feel like Kota doesn't idolize Kiki or even really like her anymore, I really agree with that too. I think it is a mix between Kota not liking her very much anymore and not wanting to be associated with her image. Has Kota ever advertised Kiki or even put "her music" in her videos? Now thinking about it, I don't think I ever have. I'm sure Kiki has asked, I mean, when Kota first came to Japan and was at the pique of her popularity, Kiki seemed to tweet her so much, post conversations they had, I think she also posted a picture of a Liz Lisa hat Kota got her one year, and she had no issue mentioning her.
And going back to what I said earlier about how I still feel Kota doesn't really like Kiki, since I'm now thinking about it. I wasn't around in the tumblr days but I've seen her old tumblr and heard all about it. But I think one other thing showing that Kota was really getting tired of Kiki's shit even in the tumblr days, is that Kota advertised her aim, I've heard about her answering all kinds of pms she'd get, and she befriended Charms and told her all kinds of personal stuff about herself. I think Kota made this Kotakoti persona, other than for fame/to be liked by people, but she also wanted to reach out to other people. Back in the scene days, Kota never seemed to have friends at all, unless you count Kiki's friends she was third wheeling with. Compare her to Kiki, Kiki never, ever replies to anyone unless the person has something to offer her and is willing to give her all their information in case everything heads south and her and Cathy need to sue them. I don't think I've ever heard of Kota doing such a thing. Even when Charms told everyone about what Kota told her, Kota never screencapped it and tried suing her or even tried to send her fans after her, though I'm sure Kiki and Cathy have. And speaking of Charms, I definitely think Dakota would've never told her all those things about her personal life if she wasn't trying to reach out to other people and the only person she had to talk about her problems to was Kiki of all people. I mean, she's learned from Kiki to not share too much to other people. And imagine if she tried to tell Kiki about being physically abused by Cathy, Kiki wouldn't relate her or other peoples' experiences to Kota's and give her advice/motivation based on what she knows like a normal person would, no, she would just make it all about herself and talk about how much harder
she has it with the internet ~h8erz~ and all.
It may seem like I whiteknight Kota way too much, I just don't think she's as shitty of a person as people make her out to be, at least when you compare her to Kiki. Even though it's easy to look like a good person compared to Kiki, whom I don't think there's really a likeable quality about her, Kota seems like a really cool and good friend to have. I just wish I could've befriended her or at least talked to her before she became really popular and started to keep her guard up with people.
Idk, I apologize if I'm rambling and this makes no sense, if it doesn't, it sounded much better in my head and I'm really exhausted at the moment.

Actually,she didn't make the kotakoti persona to be famous, she sure as hell milked it when she realzed it got her fame, but it wasn't her intention when she created the tumblr account. I followed her on twitter beforehand and shooping was just a quiet hobby where she'd post pictures like the one here and add a crude joke underneath. She only had 8k followers and like every 1 in 5 tweets was at kiki. This was in mid 2011.
I was the anon who wrote that she wanted to be famous, not because I knew her motives but I was just saying a reasoning she could've made it in the first place. I also added it because I know a few people would be like "she just wanted to be famous!!11!!1!" Some people flip out when you say you believe her about her age.
Anyway, I feel like she did do the shooping for praise and to feel prettier. I don't think she expected to become a model out of it or even that was her goal in the first place. I think she just wanted to act out a fantasy of being someone else and I also think she wanted to share her makeup/fashion with like-minded people, which both are completely understandable. I'm also not going to hate her for milking the fame because if I was in her situation, I would too. Same thing with the modeling, like I'm sure Kota knew she wouldn't be good at it and she wouldn't look like her shoops but I think she took the opportunity because she's really interested in and wanted to go to Japan, even if she sucked at modeling, not many people can say they were a model in Japan, and she wanted to get away from her insane family and actually
do something with her life unlike everyone around her.

If you mean by whiting her face out, this is an image from a video where the flash went off. She doesn't go this far.
i know she didn't do it on purpose but i never got the appeal of white washing yourself to the point where you're just eyes and a mouth, it looks creepy. i get it a little bit if you have an ugly nose/acne/lines/etc but that's it.
also she makes me think of anastasia shpagina with the weird makeup and brightness. she looks much better with the cat eye makeup

i do too!
i was thinking of making a twitter and requesting vlogs in japanese since she only seems to focus about her japanese fans. but i don't think she'll ever do vlogs, she seems too private for that and she doesn't even have the time for it, it seems.
i agree, and she could at least use a foundation to conceal her lips.
If it's one shade lighter then it's so weird
look at her sister and compare them, kota is infinitely better than kiki as a person. a lot of people also like her because kota is living kiki's dream and it pisses her off that kota is more liked than her.
i can't help but love kota because i think about what it must be like having a narcissistic sister as your only friend. and on top of that, kota was constantly ignored by everyone for kiki. kota was also apparently being abused by cathy for not being as skinny and pretty as kiki is. so it's refreshing to see her happy with friends and far away from those people.
This. Dakota got her sister's ideal lifestyle and
in Japan no less, with no help from her whatsoever. It's the best revenge imo.

This purikura though.
I know they can exaggerate your features but damn. It's so intense.
Purikura photos are always extremely exaggerated. It gives a heavy ps effect.
Nobody looks natural on them. Everyone looks like an alien
I've suspected that she's been living with her bf for awhile. She's even posted some pics of when she has had her nails done with an engagement type ring on her left finger.
To take it further I suspect that they're actually married. It makes sense– it's easier to live in Japan with a spousal visa than on an entertainment visa.

What are those hair clips she uses to get the cone buns?
I haven't followed any of Kota since /cgl/ and after she went to Japan it kinda died off once it looked like she was going to be successful. It looks like her image changed too. I'm surprised she's still modeling, I didn't think it would last this long but she seems to be doing well.
File: 1420851641788.jpg (56.63 KB, 500x729, 15035956.jpg)
She made quite a bunch of photos with plushies from Fruits Basket when she was still into Scene besides the usual Hello Kitty, Gloomy Bear and other mascot stuff but those photos are very hard to find, pic related.
True. When I was there I was approached before though didn't follow through. My friend who is half Japanese did random modeling gigs and a commercial when was younger.
I meant that I didn't know that she was still modeling because the last I read, her contract with the initial company was only for a year.
it looks like it's just a little piece of foam attached to a hairpin. Something like that wouldn't be hard to make, idk if it's an actual product or just some diy.
also Dakota threads didn't die off because she went to japan, it died off because the rules on /cgl/ changed and threads discussing specific people such as Jessica Nigri or Kota started being bahleeted immediately by the janitor.
stupid moot, ruining all our fun.
Actually I think it was the scene that gave Kota a head start. She had 8,000 followers at the time she created her tumblr, and literally the only marketing she did was post the link on twitter once. No pretentious tags, nothing. Just silently started uploading pictures. My theory is that a couple hundred or more of those twitter followers followed her on tumblr and reblogged her pictures, helping them spread out. So to a high degree I think you really can say it all just fell into her lap. At least in the beginning when the popularity started rolling in.
Though later on she definitely tried to milk it by directing her tumblr to a new website that she used as a sort of portfolio with a "contact me for bookings" page. As well trying to appeal to Korea, then China and finally Japan by making her videos in their language.
I remember the first ever youtube video, the horn tutorial, the title was originally in Korean, all because a Korean TV network featured her tumblr. Then when someone tipped her that a fake Chinese weibo account had 6k followers she had a freak out on twitter asking everyone to report it, before eventually asking the fake for the password instead. So she made a weibo and that's when she jumped ship on the Koreans and made her thank you china video. After that I assume
Shit, I clicked post on accident. Anyway…
I assume bravo must have contacted her for booking, so she left china now and started making videos speaking Japanese because it was "serious this time".
So I think girls like peachymilkytea CAN achieve the same thing if they took it as seriously as her (and of course were as smart/professional as her)

If you're already in Japan then it's really not that hard to join an agency providing you're thin and attractive– if you're outside Japan it's not nearly as easy.
Your best bet is to join an agency near you and then have them send you abroad for work.
To clarify lindsey wixson didn't get noticed in Japan. And actually faced A LOT of rejection at first.
Her parents had to take a loan to get her to LA and even then everyone except on agency rejected her. Just saying.
i never said she was noticed in japan, i was just saying she was cute enough for japan. i'm a huge fan of hers and i always see her on the covers of japanese magazines.>>39893
idk, i think she's cute and quite sweet. some things she does kinda bother me, ie all of her eye makeup tutorials have japanese titles even though she doesn't even have an eye shape similar to any asian eye shapes. but overall she isn't a mean person, doesn't try to act like an anime character, or anything like that. i don't get why you hate her so much.
anyway, even if she's "ugly," she's still cute by japan standards.
Because I'm 29 and despite being told I look way younger I just know the whole deal would implode if they ever needed official documents with my birthday on them.
Maybe I'll do it anyway? Afterall the worst they can say is "no" and I'll just be in the same place as I was had I not tried.
Just looked at their website and it seems kooter's real height is now updated there, she used to list herself as taller. >>27683
Her measurements are still fake though. No way that's a 21" waist.
File: 1421230324629.jpg (163.23 KB, 600x800, 20140926_fc21e1.jpg)
Definitely not. She's got a li'l pooch goin' on, which is fine but yeah, no way that's anywhere near 21". I mean, pretty much all models and their agencies lie about their measurements, but that's a stretch.
Also holy shit, after I posted that, I noticed blue tints in her legs/parts of her arms in the picture I posted so I pushed my laptop screen back to see it better and…are those veins? Or is it some weird editing/colour fuck up? It's creeping me out, man. I'm even paler than Dakota and the veins on my thighs aren't that
Have her eyebrows always been this asymmetrical? She usually has them covered with her bangs.
I have the same thing where one is straight and the other is curved and it makes me look slightly skeptical 24/7.

you're trolling, right?
She doesn't have a model body or 21" waist for sure. She's always quite large compared to the Japanese models when placed beside them when there's no shoop.
Her eyes are shooped big and chin shooped small on this pic but it highlights that her fivehead is gatdamn big.
ikr, i don't get why she doesn't just invest in a good push-up bra. from what i've noticed, japan is filled with super push-up bras.
this is kinda ot, but when i was looking back in the thread, i saw the bikini pic and thought that it's too bad she prefers to shoop herself incredibly skinny/petite. i think if she invested in a push up bra, she could market herself as curvier/sexier. i think it would work much better since she is supposed to be a real barbie and i think japanese people would be much more interested in someone that's more different from them. like a lot of girls who want fame in japan think they need to look/act like the stereotypical japanese girl, but i think if she/they milked their foreign looks/behavior, they'd get more attention.
but the shape of her nose did drastically change. Remember what she looked like when she was 13? It's not like her nasal bridge just sunk into her face and the tip of her nose turned upward by itself.
You have to remember also that the Ostrengas are trashy and cheap but also resourceful, so it would come as no surprise that they went around looking for a surgeon shady enough to reconstruct her nose while billing it so ther insurance would pay for it. That's actually a really common problem in FL- people lying to their insurance companies about the degree of necessity of their surgeries. Most plastic surgeons had to stop taking insurance at all without a recommendation for necessary breast reductions because women were getting cosmetic lifts and billing them as reductions for "back pain".
File: 1421412361847.png (179.31 KB, 718x202, 34324.png)
Where is the drastic change besides that her round nosetip grew more pointy while growing older?
She didn't lose anywhere near enough weight for her entire nose to change width, height, and shape, and puberty doesn't fuck with the structure of your nose like that. >>40490
Except it's not. Granted, it's a shitty proof pic because the angles suck, but still.
File: 1421415208533.jpg (941.63 KB, 947x989, kota.jpg)
Her nose didn't change much other than the tip. I mean that really could be from the septoplasty, if she actually had it done. >>40488
Same with the bruising of her face /cgl/ claimed. >>40486
I believe she was like 10/11 in the "round as fuck" photo. Idk about you guys but my nose, face, and body has changed a bit from when I was 11.

I don't believe Dakota has had a nosejob.
You look at images of Cathy and she has the exact same nose as Dakota which is obviously where she got it from, whereas Kirsten got Scott's nose (unlucky).
Noses can change pretty drastically during puberty though. Mine used to be a petite ski slope but now at age 23 it's grown into a Roman nose, is longer and has a bump in the center.

And changing the shape of the nosetip to something more pointy isn't hard, one of the reasons why those painful silicone inserts for reshaping the nosetip are so popular in asia.
This is something I can never work out.. Does Dakooter wear extensions? What about Kiki?
Also seeing that fried as shit hair on top and then her long, silky hair on bottom really gives me hope for my own mane. I just need to be patient :s
File: 1421546104001.gif (1.12 MB, 260x146, 11y5v.gif)
Dakota wears extensions quite often, not hard to notice by the color differences.
A few days ago I cut my bangs and the stylist asked me what type of bangs I wanted so I searched some girls with bangs, there was a gif of Kota and the man told me 'wow how much editing… and that hair is not hers, she wears extensions"
If a man that doesn't know about Kota notices these two things… lmao how blind is Kota
You mean how blind are the Japanese. Seriously, as much as they utilize wigs, extensions, and hair dye, and not to mention makeup tricks and photo editing- that they could see through her in two seconds.
Maybe they're just so blinded by her ~exotic blue eyes~ that they willfully ignore everything else like her weight, hair, face, etc.
*you would think
there's a difference between using hair, makeup, and photo editing to make yourself look better and then completely changing your entire face shape, hair color and length, eye color and size, lips, nose, chin, height, weight, and figure into a beautifies caricature of yourself and trying to pass it off as legit. kota IS cute, but she lied her ass off about how much shit she did to her pics and it's baffling how JP chooses to ignore all of that, not to mention her trashy past, batshit sister and awful use of the language and disregard for their customs. just because she has blue eyes and pale skin and can say こんにちは〜ダコタです〜
I always noticed how japanese don't give one single fuck about this on photo editing. Check the before after of western celebrities, they touch up the breasts, skin, weight etc. They never change a nose or the shape of the mouth or eyes. Whereas japanese graphic designers are mostly horrid at best.
Most japanese website are badly built and 10 years behind what everyone else is doing in terms of graphic design. Magazines are terrible with trashy glitter for the one aimed at teens/young women (didn't see them all obviously), it's like it's been made by a 13yo high on crack and hello kitty.
Not hating on them, but I studied graphic design and magazine editing so seeing those kind of things is hilarious and cringe worthy at the same time. They don't seem to care much that Dakota is a shape shifting alien depending on the mag she's in.
Yup, pretty much.
It's like the entire country has half of itself stuck between the 80s and the early 2000s.
literally said the same thing.
Oh, so they did. I didn't notice.
I guess it's true.
Yup, they got no sense of organisation for some and sometimes they get delirious ideas (I showed the Liz Lisa website to a teacher and it had changed to a castle thing and he almost died laughing)
Even some brands websites are just … incredible. For example Moi-même moitié has a sort of blog like atrocity and even the french baby "website"/blog has glitters and random gifs everywhere and fucked up something as simple as a contact form. >>41158
Exactly, they'll pump you some futuristic android dolls but then feature it on a website from the 90s with a broken contact form.
I don't know much about Korea though, maybe they got better stuff and that's why they were really disappointed in Dakota.
In Korea, looks are only half of it. You can have plastic surgery and use PS to make yourself look like celebrity material, but if you don't act like it you'll be burned in a fucking hurry. Kota got burned by them because she acted too gruff and masculine, too uncute. She wasn't this ~humble, gracious submissive princess~ they expected her to be so they hated her.
Lucky for her Japan is fucking retarded when it comes to young white foreigners.
The 'I hate you because you hate kimchi' isn't true at 100%
it's a way to excuse their hate towards Kota
I remember watching Get it Beauty and my friend told me 'omo! is that the girl we used to follow on Youtube? She doesn't know how to apply a simple eyeshadow! Her behaviour is not good and doesn't look like her pictures! Woah how pathetic, thanks god I stopped watching her videos. How can she have a beauty channel in Youtube if she doesn't know how to apply eyeshadow"
Korea expected her to be cute and girly, like she seemed to be in her videos. The 'I hate her because I expected her to be submisive but she's not' isn't true. Amber from F(x) isn't cute/girly and has lots of fans, the difference? Amber speaks in a good way, I mean, she uses English and Korean right, even if she's a tomboy she doesn't speak manly or aggresive. Ah, if you're going to say Amber is accepted because is Korean, nope, she's Chinese. And Chinese people had it hard to become idols in Korea. There was a Chinese singer in SuJu that had to wear mouth masks because 'he wasn't Korean'. In that time Korea was not as 'open' to foreigners as it is today, however there's still differences. Sorry for OT
She fucked up the eyeshadow on the beauty show because she wasn't working with an eye shape she was familiar with on that host lady. Korea doesn't hate Her because she's bad at makeup, they hate her because of all the reasons I listed. Koreans are huge on saving face, so yeah they hate her, yeah they'll say it, but they'll lie about the reasons.
Bringing up Amber and the reasons you listed actually proved my point. Kota speaks in a gruff and forward casual way, while Koreans rather expected her to be polite and gracious. She wasn't, and they shat all over her because Koreans are fuckin crazy and shallow about celebrities.

It is pretty much a square being as edgy as it is.
You're going to think I'm full of shit but sometimes beauty is more than just the right features and voluminous hair.
I've met girls who were a bit "eh" in the looks department, but were so confident that they would have people swarming around them.
When you possess that level of confidence in yourself it really does shine out like a beacon, and people will come gather to bask in it.

The only fatty is you here. A jelly fatty chan.
More seriously I need explanation how is this fat at all this is cute af you gotta be baiting nigga
tbh, i never noticed dakota's extensions and never cared that she wears them. as long as they're not shiny and plastic or awfully put on, i think the average person wouldn't notice or care. i think people who are more experienced with hair are going to be the only ones who notice/care. i bleach/dye my own hair and my roots almost always have some black spots where i can't see what i'm doing. everyone else compliments my hair, but my parents, who have a history of doing hair, will complain about it.
if i were you, i'd try out getting one made with real hair so you can dye it to match your color and it will look more natural. if you think it looks fake where you clip it on, you can wear a headband or something over it.
Seriously though, she doesn't have the extremely anorexic model body she always shoops herself into.
seriously anon wtf is wrong with your eyeballs are they ok shes not fat but yeah she has an unfortunate bodyshape for modelling tbh
It just seems kind of silly to me hiw much they go out of their way to lie about her weight and measurements, butcher her face and figure in photoshop, and not to mention the whole "shapeshifting alien baby" thing, it seems like a ton of work just to get her in a few teen magazines and purikura machines. She isn't even trying to be super famous, she seems fine with her current status level, but Bravo seems to me like a more higher end agency (when Kota got signed, they were representing Andrej Pejic at the height of his popularity after all).
If Dakota had applied to Bravo without all the photoshop, they wold have laughed in her face. I dont get why they keep bending ovrr backwards to keep getting her jobs and photoshopping her to death. Agencies don't go after models where they have to dilute 85% of their appearance. It goes against the entire business model. "Don't waste time and money on girls who don't have the look". Obviously if Dakota had the look Japan wanted she wouldn't need the shoop in the first place, but lucky for her Japan is retarded about photoshop, to them it must be magic or some shit.
They hired her because she was already popular and had a shit ton of fans on youtube and twitter. I really don't think they give a fuck what she looks like sans-shoop as long as she can book jobs and she's proven that she can. It's not like Bravo bullies people into hiring her.
You do know that it's not Bravo that's photoshopping her shoots right?
The only things agencies will do is advertise you on various platforms, negotiate with employers and hook you up with work. If you're lucky they might even spot you travel/accommodation fees and even then you have to pay them back. They have absolutely zero input on how a model or a client chooses to edit stills from a shoot.

When I was thirteen years old, despite having an ugly wide on top nose my whole life, I started a new school and everyone complimented my nose.
Like fuck. I was insulted on it my whole life and all of a sudden it was nice?
This is like, the most unflattering picture ever. The angles and the shooping, ugh. It makes her forehad look HUGE and that "laying down selfie" angle makes her torso and tits look 3x bigger, but maybe hat was on purpose.
At least her eyes look good though?
It's a cheap accessory ring you can easily get at any mall.
Dakota at least has an agency to give her reasons to stay in Japan. I doubt kiki is also repped by Bravo or anything, she old.

Popteen announced Dakota as price for some contest with this picture.
Tbh I actually don't think this is shoop.
I have a camera application that gives the exact same effect with a number of different filters. It's probably just that.
I don't think Dakota shoops nearly as much as she needs to, and not at all with her camera selfies. With the stuff she does back at her apartment with her Canon definitely, but their's a range of camera apps that kind of already do this stuff for you.
Wut? Anon are you blind?
Filters don't change your face, eye or nose shape.
But that is her face, those are her features, she's just wearing contacts and the appropriate makeup combined with soft lighting.
You'd be amazed with how those three things combined can make you look different,and I should know because I do the save thing all the time.
Download Youcam and see for yourself.
Aw, she looks really cute.
She has always been wearing the same lenses. And appropriate makeup my ass, she isn't wearing anything noticeable except mascara and lipgloss.
Have you ever seen Kooters face without photoshop? Eyes, nose and lips look kinda like hers, but her cheeks? Hell nah her face is A LOT wider and bigger.
no. that is straight up photoshop, anon.
yeah, there are a few apps that can work a little magic, but jfc not that much. you would be amazed at how many people will take a photo with their phone, transfer it over to their pc, fiddle around in photoshop, and either upload from there or transfer it back to their phone to try and pull off that shit like they just took it and just added little tidbits through an app.
kota loves the shoop, she lives for the shoop, no app is going to do the type of shoop she wants.
do you guys use photoshop? the non app version?
you understand she'd have to take the photo, send it to herself, get access to her laptop, redownload, photoshop it (and it's NOTT a lot she's doing to these) , resend it to herself
all to upload some crappy 6mp cellphone selfies?
she's modeling, socializing, doing gigs, hanging out with her perceived boyfriend, busy editing ACTUAL high res photos of herself and her videos, getting tutored. she doesnt even update her networks as often as somebody like her should with this big a fanbase
you really think she's gonna go all out on some camera selfies?
No, she's fat and you must be a fatty in denial. Her waist must be, what, 32"? She doesn't have a shapely enough figure to pull that off, she needs to lose all that fat so her waist can be smaller then her hips again.
Seriously though, kooter, wtf are you eating in Japan to get this big?
>>46167>making it sound like an arduous process
The transfer takes what? 2 minutes if you're not retarded? And then some basic shooping in the same style she's done a thousand times before? She's not so busy that she wouldn't have 20 minutes to spare for this shit.
>she doesnt even update her networks as often as somebody like her should with this big a fanbase
Yeah, if she's as busy as she claims she wouldn't have time for a full home photoshoot and blog post. So she takes a quick selfie and uploads that instead. Try to make at least a little sense…
the real question is why act like such a cunt when you're given realistic facts?
"Yeah, if she's as busy as she claims she wouldn't have time for a full home photoshoot and blog post. So she takes a quick selfie and uploads that instead. Try to make at least a little sense…"
yeah, because she does those every day. not once every 2 months or so, tops. you try making a little sense.
people like you just refuse to give up on your obsessive portrayal of her as being the same person from 2011/2012. you're still sooooo hung up on being deceived that you spend every little time trying to pinpoint a slight curve deformity in the images, seeing shit that's not even there.
and then at the end of the day, so what if she does fucking go through the indeed time consuming process of editing blurry ass cell pictures in photoshop? let it go already
photoshop hysteria is fucking real, man. jesus christ. every little thing "OH MY GOD, PHOTOSHOP". literally respond when you understand how a camera works
CHILL. these aren't cell phones pics.
nooobbbodddy was disputing her high res camera/youtube or photoshoot stuff is photoshopped. that's obvious
Says the person who doesn't even use basic grammar.
>so what if she does fucking go through the indeed time consuming process of editing blurry ass cell pictures in photoshop? let it go already
The anon you're responding to even said they weren't judging Dakota, they were just explaining that it's an easy process. Half the people here aren't ragging on her, just calm down a bit or get out.

C'mon, we've been through this before.
She stuffs in all her pics and then shoops them further.>>27683
Even with a padded cup she's still flat.
they shoop her body like the body of the japanese popteen models imo>>46360
looks like an alien.
Lol nigga look at her ankle.
Bitch looks like she has elephant feet.
here are the reasons Bravo signed her:
>she's young and white >light hair and blue eyes, pale skin>is good with hair and makeup & used this and shoop to gain a ton of attention online
They put up with the amount of retouching she needs because she's cute and white and Japan shits their pants for young, innocent looking white girls, especially if they're covered in makeup and wearing lacey pastel clothes.
I was wondering about that. How popular are white people in Japan, or countries outside of the UK, U.S., Canada and Australia in general? I've only been outside of the U.S. a few times in my life to the Caribbean, but they didn't seem to care that you were white at all outside of trying to have you fall for tourist attractions.
I didn't really see any ads or anything with white people in them either. When I see videos with people in Japan I often notice many white models on billboards in the background.
I haven't been to Japan yet, but I think being white is kinda popular in Japan. I do language exchange with a lot of Japanese people and it's anonymous, the only things the people know is your age, where you're from, and first name. My name is a common Russian name so I'll have a bunch of old Japanese guys flirting with me each time I post for language exchange/friends. Which I feel like that's how Kota's sister got that sugar daddy, I've had old Japanese guys suggest that they're sugar daddies to me. A lot of these guys are very thirsty just at the idea of a white girl, which is why it was easy for her sister to get one.
That being said, like this anon said >>46421
, just being white isn't going to get you famous or worshiped by Japanese people. I think a lot of people in Japan fetishisize white people and foreigners in general, just like how a lot of people in other parts of the world would fetishisize people foreign to them.
i agree, like mentioned there's an audience for it. but it's more of a special snowflake syndrome thing. because it's rare there, it's popular for it's "exotic-ness." i recall watching a video where they interviewed young students in japan on their ideal mate, most of them said japanese
i think having a white girlfriend in japan is seen as more of a wealth status
I agree with you to a certain point. A lot of my friends are Latinos and when we asked each other what types of guys we go for vs guys we'd never consider dating, a lot of them said Asians for guys they aren't attracted to. I was really surprised because it was unanimous. According to them, the majority of Latinos (of different countries) don't care for Asians, they're mainly into white or native americans (mexican looking). Black guys are looked down on a lot too.
So I'm assuming that the people that are most fetishized are white world wide
like i said, western/european colonization of most of the world is really responsible for that.
but it is a stretch to say white world wide. honestly if you look at non white societies what they claim as being the most beautiful are things still indigenous to that country
in japan a round face and small features are the most desired. those aren't really ethnic traits for a lot of white people who have squared jawlines and protruding noses and such
that's because the appearance of black peoples (i'm certain black is fine, since not all black people are american) is very stark to what asian features are
but like literally go to africa, there are people with a crapload of different hues, eyecolors, nose shapes, mouths, ect. beyond the stereotypes
originally yes! but we've also seen in the west that pale, fair skin isn't really desired anymore. tanned skin is, because it shows you have the money to afford to lay out in the sun all day (or whatever).
very fair skin is seen as unhealthy, and olive or tanned skin is seen as healthy
beauty things change all the time
doesn't this only apply to east asia though?
I was watching some south korean make up tutorials the other day, and I noticed that the foundation was applied muuuuch lighter than the natural skin tone. I watched many other videos where the same was being done and found that this is normal for them.
In the U.S. people tend to do the opposite.
african-american is a broad term. my mother is african-american and she has green eyes and fair skin and curly light brown hair
it's really hard to pigeon-hole it. because the term literally just means you can trace your genetic heritage to africa
File: 1423104292292.jpg (472.27 KB, 1278x1920, girl.jpg)
Americans are made up of different races and ethnicities, giving them different variations of features. Africans also don't look the same across different regions. For ex, I've never seen an african american baby that looks like this
dita von tesse has a niche audience though
and of course with everything everywhere it comes to personal preference
i'm just going off of what i see in the media on average. i know tons of people who are very fair skinned who say they wish they had tanned skin, and compare how dark everyone got over the summer and see it as a good thing, not a bad thing
people with dark skin aren't intentionally shooped lighter because light skin is seen as more beautiful. it's because many cameras don't meter for dark skin, but meter for fair skin.
because of that the white balance is thrown off
if you have any class pictures with very dark skinned peers you'll know what i mean. their features are drowned out.
the shooping is to recapture them
They're not always shooped to have their features captured though. People are whitewashed for the sake of having them appear as though they had naturally lighter skin.
Though I do think this is done more so in countries like the ones mentioned by >>46452
and the US.
In countries where the majority are dark skinned it wouldn't make sense.
i agree with the part about eastern asian countries doing that, but not western countries and definitely NOT mainstream US.
I can tell you this now, as somebody who works as a fashion photographer in NYC and also models, that isn't anymore truer for dark skinned models than it is for fair skinned models. If it happens, it's to even out tone from blemishes.
But believe what you will.
There is more shame from the black community over skin tone than there is from white people in America. I can vouch for that one.
File: 1423105835004.jpg (79.96 KB, 618x590, 657.jpg)
you have a very narrow view though as to what african-american means
not everyone who is of geological african descent calls themself african-american when they inhabit america.
also look as to where african peoples have been dispersed (mostly due to slavery). brazil has a huge african ethnic population but does not say Afro-Brazilian
another thing, the term "African-American" was coined BY black americans after the civil rights movement when there was a focus on reclaiming/honoring their african ancestral past which was lost to the slave trade
anyways this is getting hella OT but i'm kinda happy it's being discussed
No, that's not what I'm talking about. Because what was being alluded to in the discussion was that dark skinned people prefer that so that they look more ethnically white, which I don't 100% agree with.
(That side bit is not addressing that. Actually it was referencing the stereotypes that come with having light skin in the american black community. But I won't get into that.)

Their resemblance really shows here. Though, I still think Dakota has a much nicer face. A lot rounder and cuter. Plus, she got the good nose. Kaka looks crone-ish in comparison.
File: 1423134600381.jpg (43.8 KB, 640x464, personagens-vegeta-7e6739.jpg)
I think the only thing would be her forehead, but she's smart enough to conceal it with her fringe, unlike Kaka. And fuck, Kirsten's eyebrows annoy me so goddamn much. She goes apeshit on her eye make-up but doesn't shape or fill in her brows and they're lighter/thinner towards the center of her face so they look like a male DBZ character's eyebrows.
File: 1423340933717.png (109.84 KB, 325x354, DAKIKI_WHAT_HAVE_I_DONE.png)
Just shooped this and… Um. Wow. Kiki needs bangs.
Shit, Kaka, GET ON THAT.
Not only does it conceal her huge stretch of forehead but it hides her ugly Vegeta brows too. I suppose it'd be just one more thing to add to the list of things she's copied from Kota.

Damn, Tako-san, that's pretty cute, I have to admit.
Actually that's the 100% correct way to hold a gun.
If you're not aiming to actually fire/shoot, you should NEVER have your finger on the trigger.
Trigger discipline is so rudimentary that yes it even applies to toy guns because otherwise you look like a moron and you will literally get hundreds of people yelling "TRIGGER DISCIPLINE, TRIGGER DISCIPLINE!" at you.
Oh, well fuck. Didn't know that.
Thanks for correcting me, anon.
She looked adorable in this shot, so I don't know why they chose such a crappy photo to put on the magazine. 100 points for her trigger discipline.
Though it's annoying how guns are so taboo in Japan. You know a Japanese girl probably wouldn't have been chosen for this shoot.

Koti means kawaii extra absorbency for those heavy days.
Enjoy those Kotex pads.
It doesn't mean anything.
Koti is not a word in the English or Japanese language.
It's just part of a stage-name.
Kota's always stiff, though. She's very wooden when it comes to photoshoots/modelling. Pretty much the only reason why she's signed is because she's the
all-famous, all-kawaii Dakota Rose.
"Koti" is what used to be her nickname before she got big on Stickam. Cathy and Kiki called her that.
So she mashed part of her full first name with her nickname when she started her new kawaii persona.
Popteen is to Japan as Tiger Beat is to the USA. Nobody except middle schoolers and pedos read it, so aside from that demographic, she's not even very well known in Japan. When the average Japanese person happens to see her on tv, it's "oh it's that foreign popteen model, oh her name is Dakota Rose? She's cute." and then they move on.
Other than her fans and jealous PULLtards she's not well known at all. As it's been said before, she's crap at modeling.
Just curious: about how many likes do most models' ameblos tend to get, in comparison?
It's funny to think she got voted most popular somehow when her appearances in Popteen just keep declining. She only showed up once in the latest issue, right?
All the English comments she gets on YT are fucking hilarious considering this whole time her English-speaking fans have been begging for recognition while she continues to ignore them. You'd think they'd get it by now that she doesn't give a shit about anyone not Japanese. Though maybe I shouldn't be surprised since that'd be expecting deductive reasoning from the same people who are delusional enough to keep saying "she's Asian!"
I do wonder if her views have gone down quite a bit from people who've already wised up, though.
OT but I miss Magibon :(
She only posts very rarely now. She always looks the same, though. It's like she doesn't age.
…I'm sorry, what?
You think this
girl is average/chubby? You're fucking with me, right? Hell, even Dakota doesn't look chubby in the original picture. Somewhere in between slim and average, maybe, but not chubby at all.
I think you've been spending too much time in Ashley's thread, anon.

Jackotass is her Dakota dumblr, though it hasn't been updated since 2013, you can still find old drawins tho
Dakota's time is comIng to an end because she's not doing what she should to keep her public image up. It seems like she thinks that Japan will just keep giving her jobs because they really like her looks, and so she doesn't have to diet, exercise, work on her modeling teqniques or keep up appearances as long as she keeps up with the cute makeup and hair while occasionally
posting a selfie or update.
People are gonna start to forget about her, and she's getting older which, despite her gruff gimmick and how she ages, isn't working in her favor. She can't pretend to be ~16~ forever.
I think all the time she spent as her sister's shadow might have effected her ability to be in the spotlight. Throughout her rise and her career in Japan she's always been so awkward being in the spotlight.
Like you said I don't think she knows how to be on the spotlight.
I would think that bravo would help her, or give her tips on what to do to make her gain a bigger following.
I got the same feeling. I don't know if her time is up obviously because people have been saying that since the beginning of her modeling carreer (if that's a career).
But she reeks off awkward and while she's cute, I think she's been too affected by truth blogs and how she and her family handled it. If she faced it from the start she'd have grown some balls but all she does is ignore, deflect and report. Her family taught her that even if they make mistakes (with Daniel, with her shoops, her lies, her past racism) they don't have to apologize and just block, report, harass, threaten.
I know it's armchair psychology here, but Dakota seems the closest one to sanity, I don't really like her but I can see where she tries to not make the same mistakes as her family and managed to be more successful than her sister. The problem is now she's insecure because she obviously looks way different than her shoops when other people take her pics and can't relax and have fun. She's not a good model because it's like she's always holding in, not fully smiling or revealing parts of her she doesn't like (chin, tummy I guess)
Both of these posts arevexactly why I don't see her making much more out of this Living Doll trend than she already has. If she doesn't get into school soon for something she can actually live on, she'll be out in the cold sooner rather than later, that's just how trends work. Unless she finds a way to be more interesting and appealing, Japan is going to get tired of her. Nobody likes a one trick pony after all, and Bravo isn't going to break the bank keeping her when she starts aging and doesn't show any sign of improving herself. At this point she's got no more tricks up her sleeve unless she ties to make her own fashion or cosmetics line, and since she doesn't have business experience then even that might not be a very good idea.
She was hella lucky that her Living Doll deal took her as far as it did, but it's still just another internet fad and it will die out, and idk what she'll do when it does.
To be fair, people were saying that In the beginning, and especially when she got signed, out of jealousy. Now almost 3 years later, she's a one trick pony on a dying fad, getting older, and her modeling sadly hasnt much improved since she started.
I hope she gets as much out of it while she can, her popularity is declining and she's not getting any younger.
The thing is, if she had some sort of personnality like she had before she could rely on it to become a sort of celebrity and get invited to show or sponsor products. If she were funny or had a talent she could use it but she's rather awkward live and can't handle her face, so she doesn't move much and try to stay as dolly as possible.
She really shoot herself in the foot because she can't keep up with her shoops and is too weak to assume her mistakes.
Even in Japan she showed she's still got the same attitude. Like that time some Japanese guy wrote "I cant imagine what having cramps would be like" and she said "if you want to know, I'll punch you in the stomach!" and more recently, the way she was talking about what those guys said in the February 2015 Popteen issue ("I don't care about looking kind", "Shoes are never enough, I don't need a letter. I don't want a wallet, I want money.")
Remember the Living in Japan segment? She was very standoffish with the other girls. One tried to touch Dakota's arm while talking to her and Dakota made a face like "get away from me".
She's able to get herself to fake it enough to seem cutesy for her job…but sometimes not even then, like a lot of the time when videos show the models getting ready to go onstage, Dakota has a sour face while the rest are happy and waving for the camera, and same when they're leaving the stage.>>51072>She was hella lucky that her Living Doll deal took her as far as it did, but it's still just another internet fad and it will die out, and idk what she'll do when it does
I do tbh. I don't think she'll allow herself to end up back in the states. It seems like she's been dating most of the time she's been in Japan and she took a guy home the last time she had to go to Florida. I'm certain she'll want to get married to get a Japanese citizenship. Dakota's sister is trying her best to do the same now.>>51148
Yeah, I don't know what was up with that. There was some article that said she was planning on singing but then other people thought it must've been a mistake. I think she also said something about how she can't sing in a later interview when asked. And I mean, we know that for ourselves already…case in point, the Belebel song, lol.
I hope she does get that Japanese citizenship.
I personally like her stiff modeling its different.(doesn't mean its good)
It just seems like its hard for her to be open around people from living with kaka and her mother. Shes not gonna change over night,and it might take years for her to be comfortable being around people.
She can't get Japanese citizenship. lol
But she can get permanent resident status, although it would require living there for 10 years without moving back in-between.
You can get it as a "Highly Skilled Foreign Professional" but that would imply stuff like scientist, professional chef or other things she would never be related to.
Or if she gets married (loool) she can get it after 3 years of marriage.
Where did you hear that Dakota brought a guy back last time? I know in Kiki's video she mentioned Dakota bringing a 'friend' back with her to the states and that was Kiki's 'reason for learning Japanese', so she could talk with the 'friends' Dakota brings back and their families (lol yeah, t0tez not because you want to be your sister or anything). But I don't remember reading she straight up brought a guy back. But it makes a lot of sense given how Kiki said she wanted to be able to talk to them and their family
. I could definitely believe Kota has a bf.
Kiki was really reaching for reasons to learn Japanese in that video. Weebs who want to learn Japanese to watch unsubbed anime or play imported games have much more valid reasons to learn imo. I'd have a lot of respect for her if she'd just outright said, "I don't care about Japan, I just want to be famous like Kota."
Dakota better hold onto her man tightly! I'm imagining a scenario where Dakota brings a man back to Florida, Kiki locks him in her "office," and starts pole dancing to seduce him. I can't get her busted ass trying to seduce a man out of my head. Other than that scenario, imagine bringing home a foreign friend and a family member clings onto your friend while speaking an incredibly broken version of their language.
I don't believe one minute she'll be a fashion designer. Celebrities like really well known models sometimes hop unto singing or collaborating with designers to create a brand (or paying designers and seamstresses and applying their name to it) but Dakota has nowhere near the popularity to do that.
Or she could study her ass off for years but then again no way that would happen.
I doubt she'll be able to bounce once her modeling career is dead, she has no personnality whatsoever to get invited to shows and can't get into singing or fashion design. Plus let's be honest, she got no sense of style and never had. In her tumblr era she probably copied what was in but her outfits are mostly weebish and cringe inducing now.
File: 1424354307791.jpg (61.77 KB, 719x405, sadsad.jpg)
She looks really cute in her new video.
You know, when you don't follow this Taylor girl at all
and only get random updates of her by seeing new photos every few months, you really starkly notice her deterioration. I literally went back and forth "is that Dakota? no. Wait yes. Wait no" for a few seconds before I read the comments below. And the fact that Taylor looks nothing like Dakota without the fakery gives me heebie jeebies.
But I guess this is the result of a Kota Clone that actually has the right knowledge to accurately clone her.
File: 1424370487135.gif (105.58 KB, 269x350, abs3k8.gif)
What a shame. She already had an established career. Why do this?
She was genuinely funny at times, but also could be very offensive (I'm not talking about the gross stuff, but the racist, homophobic and pedophilia-centered jokes) and that'd keep me from really liking her back then. It's weird to think she went from not giving a fuck about making funny faces/making herself look ugly for comedic effect, to now barely moving her mouth when speaking in videos, like an automaton.>>51538
Yeah, this. I don't think she'll ever be an "open" person and that works against her longevity in this kind of career, unfortunately. BUT she's become comfortable enough that she talks in her gruff tomboyish voice in Japanese now when she used to pretend it was highpitched and cutesy, and she's not afraid to show her true attitude. I think that's as close as it gets for her being open.>>51469>I doubt she'll be able to bounce once her modeling career is dead
This makes me wonder, do you guys think she'll go back to being more active on Youtube and social accounts if her modeling career drops, like she did before she got picked up by Bravo? Or will she let herself fade into obscurity?
Oh please. People have been having negative predictions about her future since 2012. In timeline:
1. When she started going viral, people on tumblr started saying that she "would never survive in the real world" if she can't even handle online criticism, therefore she had no future outside of the comfort of the internet.
2. When Bravo was announced everyone questioned the agency's legitimacy, saying it was fake and no way she would be a model.
3. When her first modeling photos came out everyone said they would soon drop her because she looks nothing like her personal photos.
4. Some self-proclaimed "hate blog" claiming to be a Bravo model lied that Bravo was dumping her and set her profile with the plane icon supposedly meaning that from now on Bravo refused to pay for her.
5. When she started adding frequent videos and be active on twitter, PULL said that it's because she has no jobs.
6. When she was removed from Candy Doll PULL went on to celebrate that they're done with her and this a sign that she's losing work.
7. When she appeared in the commercial with Kyary they said that it was filmed at separate times and stitched together, so she never really met her.
I'm probably forgetting other examples, but it's become embarrassing how throughout the years it's constantly been "LULZ THEY'RE GONNA BOOT HER ANY DAY NOW, SHE'S GOING HOME SOON, SHE'S LOSING WORK, I BET SHE'S BACK IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW, NOBODY'S GUNNA WORK WITH HER WHEN THEY SEE WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE, ONCE THIS IS DONE SHE'S GUNNA GO BACK TO BEING A NOBODY"
It's been 3 years and none of that has happened, instead she keeps going up.
>>51789>It's been 3 years and none of that has happened, instead she keeps going up.
Actually, no. She peaked in Japan about a year ago, her poplarity has been decreasing ever since becayse she's not very active publicly. Popteen has started using her less and less, she isn't doing as many purikura machine shoits, and she hasn't been on TV nearly as much.
Go back to PULL with your "I'm not a Dakota fan or anything but u guise are all so jelly bc shes famou in grorious nippon and ur not" shit. Honestly, I wish I knew why every kawaii weeb thinks Dakota is so huge and famous when really she isn't, as someone said before, she got signed with Bravo because they thought she was already famous thanks to /cgl/ boosting her popularity by talking about her so much. PULL was even created originally to "expose" her.

I think what's embarrassing is you getting your frilly pantsu in a twist like this. Nobody in here's even proclaiming any of that. Only one person even said "I think her career's coming to an end" in-thread and that's far from saying in definite "her career's dead! she's a has-been!"
Also, being Popteen model for only a year and yet losing appearance in the magazine continuously to the point where she only showed up once in the last issue…seems like the opposite of "keeps going up" currently!

Nah, I just chose it to accompany my post since I felt it captures the mirthful reaction from reading that butthurt anon's post.
Here's the latest Dakootz Popteen mag pic, courtesy of kontrakoti.
I think it was really intentional.http://blog.seifuku-mart.com/?eid=387408>P150 「ダコタ・ローズちゃん 表紙風」
The whole time it was focused on Kota.
Kaka was just kinda there screaming like the autistic pig she is.
It doesn't work for me.

You must have been reading an older issue because she's only in the March 2015 twice, two tiny, crap quality pics on one page where she isn't even the focus of the page.
Anywho, Kooter's gonna be on TV again, a show called "Gyoretsu no Dekiru Horitsu Sodanjo" or "Legal Office: Advice So Good You Stand in Line". Never seen it so I have no idea what it's about, but the preview images have her side by side with her shoops from back in the day.
Points to whoever can read that kanji, I haven't studied in like 2 years.
google it, basically all before/after pictures. i guess everyone got tired of her so she needs more attention
That doesn't make any sense. On Kontrakoti the preview images show shots of her next to her shoops from 2012ish.
Her absence was probably her either having some work done (the question mark on 整形しない？ makes it sound like a question, not definite "it's not plastic surgery!") and recovery, or she thought up some new makeup tricks to make her face look completely different from the 100 other looks she's created over the years.
Personally my ojective vote is for plastic surgery. It isn't the huge taboo in the east that is is in America especially, but I could see Dakota still lying about it because she's insecure- after all, she lied about something as trivial and harmless as wearing circle lenses when it was plainly obvious she was, so I wouldn't put lying about a nose job or jaw shaping past her.
yup, i agree.
btw thanks to whoever made me write that kanji combo, you reminded me of how much i suck and my brain hurts lol
It makes the most sense, and explains why she's been fading out of Popteen, they probs ran out of pics of her on hand and had to cut back.
She wouldn't be the first and definitely not the last model to have work done and lie about it outright. Her entire career is based on her face and her making herself look half Japanese, her body and her modeling aren't up to par (sorry, but it's true) and everyone has seen her face without her hafu shoop and makeup tricks. She's supposed to be this ~magical makeup transformation guru~ so any work she does get, she'll just say it's a new super secret technique she invented.

Doesn't look like if she got surgery to me.

Her LINE profile picture. Idk if it was posted.

Aren't her lips starting to look like Tsubasa's? O_ô
she doesn't have a wide nose, are you stupid?
and it's not a chubby face, it's a bulky jaw. Weightloss wouldn't change it
Probably looks that way because she seems to fill out her lower lip more. She used to hide it w/ foundation.
But yeah, she does.
lol, I'm not this >>54783
anon and I don't have an opinion on whether she's had plastic surgery or not, I'm only saying that she doesn't look how you described her, not because she 'has had surgery', just because she actually doesn't have those features. At least not in that photo, at all
Because she hasn't made appearances in a long time and apparently these before/after shows always have a guest who's had plastic surgery?
But I can't imagine she'd say yes to appearing on a show if it's something that'd make it obvious she's gotten work done. Then again, I'm surprised she's doing this just in general because she doesn't want to draw attention to how different her edits have been all across the years, plus she doesn't like to allude to the past in general
no, it's not about guests who's had plastic surgery, rather someone who's changed a lot. and if she had it done, there's no way she'd do this. she will probably make up some reason as to why she looks different, make up, style, etc.
it says ''整形してない?'', which directly translate into ''did not have surgery?''.
best dako comparison yet.
Getting rid of her nasolabial folds/ eye bags makes a world of difference.
Yeah I don't think her face looks all that different tbh, aside from eyes and folds.
Aren't her eyes like super uneven, though? Like one's higher than the other?
You know what, i just dont even care anymore. Dakota looks cute in the shooped pic. since literally 99% of the worlds major marketing campaigns involves shoop and mind tricks, i think its safe to say we have all accepted an alternate realty.
The internet also sculpts an alternate reality and we should all just stay there and infulge our inner hedon
This anon >>51243
was right. Dakota is just on her phone, not seemingly interacting with the other girls and acting like she doesn't want to be talked to/filmed backstage or wherever they are, while the other girls are super cheerful and fun and being friendly with the camera. I don't dislike Dakota but sometimes this attitude of hers makes me think she's kind of a bitch sometimes.
Obviously she has lines normally, but I'm pretty sure they're only that deep cause it looks like she's holding back a big smile, and that gives anyone a pugface. Look how curled her nostrils are.
Either way she's cute imo, and her shoppage has gotten more controlled as of late, save for the Venus-tier whitening and blush at >>54801
just because you're a model doesn't mean you're not insecure.
if anything, you probably have a lower opinion of your physical appearance after comparing it to your edited pictures in magazines.
not to mention that a model's life is made up of almost daily casting calls, where your potential employers criticize almost everything about your appearance. Being a model really is not as fun and glamorous as Popteen tries to make it seem, esp. if (like Dakota) your reputation is built on having a supposedly flawless appearance.
Not to mention that you have a very short shelf life if that's your career of choice. Dakota's going to have to find something else to do by the time she's around my age (23) or marry into money. It's actually very fortunate for her that she did turn out to be younger than everyone expected, because otherwise she'd have a much harder time competing.
I noticed this too, but I didn't read it as a 'bitch' move.
Dakota has a large online following, probably none of these other girls have an audience like that.
She's obviously got a lot more to worry about what with being the only foreigner on set as well. I don't speak Japanese, but the way she had to be coaxed into that half-hearted pose and 'yey' just seemed like someone trying to appear upbeat when they're actually feeling stressed, and I can't blame her for that.
Tbh I feel like all that would be things that she just has to suck it up and deal with, since being a model isn't the glamorous cakewalk magazines make it out to be, and well, she chose to go to Japan. If being a model and having to think in and speak Japanese is soooo stressful for her that she can't manage to look bored out of her skull 90% of the time, maybe she should think about doing something else.
>she's just an introvert!
Yeah, introvert, but a recluse loner who hardly speaks isn't a great thing for a model to be.
She does seem bitchy In this vid. Idk How many of you caught it, but when she put her finger up at The camera girl, that was kind of rude, and just The way she was acting was very "get that camera out of my face". I know someone's gonna jump to whiteknight her (but shewas probably tired/didn't want o be filmed/etc), well those excuses don't really apply to models, especially on a set. Being a model on set means you have to be camera ready, and being tired is a part of working for a living, boohoo. And besides all that, Popteen is a cutesy, upbeat girly magazine, Dakota should at least try to emulate that with all they've done for her. She always seems ungrateful and kind of blind to what an amazing opportunity she had fall into her lap, like she takes it for granted- "I'm THE Dakota Rose, they're lucky to have me".
Literally all Japanese girls do this. It's a "kawaii" cultural ting or something. Japanese people are fake as fuck in front of strangers, cameras, and foreigners. >>55390
Cheerful =/= OTT cutesy happy funfun. The other girls are trying to appear fun, friendly and happy, Dakota is just like "get that camera off me! I don't have any photoshop on!!". I understand that she acts that way because she's hella self conscious about her face since its 95% photoediting, but jeez, you would think by now she wold at least be okay with showing her actual face, which everybody has seen before without it, she's been there modeling for how long now? They know what she looks like and obvs don't care and shoop her to oblivion anyway.
As a side note, I laugh every time someone says "she's just shy!!!". That bitch ain't shy, she's conceited and keeps her mouth shut about it because it's the smart thing to do. If she were shy she wouldn't have made all those videos and been such an outspoken bitch on all her camshows/twitter before she got noticed for being "kawaii".
That's a good point. The others might be fake as fuck but at least they put the phone down and played the part they were hired to play.
Although I didn't see anyone call her "shy". Introvert isn't a synonym for being bashful. It just means you get sick of other people quicker than the average person.
are you fucking kidding me?
Being a model is perfect for an introvert. A career as a talent, maybe not so much. But as a model, the only requirement is that you look pretty for the camera and be polite and obliging towards your crew.
also you say 'she chose to go to japan' as though the rest of us wouldn't have jumped at a chance to do the same, jfc.>>55367
not being a native speaker of the language.
There are people who have lived in Japan for literally decades and are still not considered fluent. Speaking on camera is nerve-wracking enough for most people, but in another language it's difficult on a whole new level. Making a mistake would be humiliating. Dakota's always paid attention to her online audience, do you think she doesn't notice people making fun of her sister's bad Japanese?
I'd be a recluse in her situation, too. Not to mention that Dakota doesn't exactly have a stellar reputation for interacting well with her peers. The only person I can ever recall having 'befriended' Dakota is Charms/Lotte, at least before Charms sold her out to /cgl/.
>>55411>and be polite and obliging towards your crew
which she didn't.
>There are people who have lived in Japan for literally decades and are still not considered fluent.
in those cases it's usually older adlts there for work/military placement who have no interest in the language and learn just what they need to get by.
Dakota pretended she could speak perfectly decent Japanese with google translate back when she was still in Florida, and kept that up until that first time she went on tv in Japan and sat there awkwardly. Since then she learned not to speak much in person or on camera until she got better. It's been 3 years or so by now, assuming she had a basic grasp on the language before she got there, immersion learning coupled with thw class/tutor Bravo made her take, her Japanese is good enough for jer to feel comfortable using as much slang as she does, so you can't use that as an excuse. Dakota reads, understands and speaks Japanese perfectly fine, at least JLPT N3 or N2.
at first I thought this looked shocking, but the more I look at it it's like, her face looks pretty similar, just her lines are so deep. I feel like that's at least half because of bad lighting.
Side note, but did she change her eyebrow shape? It looks a little odd now
File: 1425084500781.jpg (118.17 KB, 600x800, 20140420_890a3d.jpg)
She draws them more arched? since quite a while but it isn't very visible usually due to her bangs covering them.
your 'crew' is not the same as 'your fellow models'. Dakota isn't shown interacting with her stylists, set technicians or photographers.
Anyways, isn't Dakota's 'persona' supposed to be the disarmingly gruff, casual-speech tsundere type?
It'd be weird for her to act all smiley and insincere for a video like this.>>55416
Idk if Kota really cares whether Kiki gets mocked or not. They seem to be pretty distant recently. I'd imagine she just doesn't want the same stigma of being an incompetent gaijin making Google Translate mistakes attached to her.
True. Other than the fact that Kota most likely doesn't like that Kiki's trying to steal her thing, I don't think Kota even
reads here, pull, or what anyone posts about her/them in general.
And while Kota is definitely not fluent, I don't think it requires that much for her to speak Japanese. I study another language and know many other people who speak second languages. In my personal experience and from what I've seen, the more you use a language, the more natural it becomes to use it. Kota has actually lived there for almost 3 years, so I think she's fine.
your newfag is showing
Moemo was always a bitch in dakota threads, from my recollection.
Dakota has been living in Japan full time for 3 years, she speaks Japanese. Do you live in Japan? If not, do you use and speak it every day? If not, then that's why you're not good at spoken Japanese.
Jeez, what is with people lately? "Dakota avoids cameras becuz her nihongo probably isn't that good!" You would have to be pretty slow to live there for 3 years, studying the language and still not be able to speak it decently. I'm sure her agency either put her in classes or gave her a tutor.
Face it: she's the same self conscious, yet superficial bitch she always was. Kudos to her for not conjuring some fake ass ~sweet kira kira kawaii elf princess of love and light~ persona like Kiki, but she's still the same foul mouthed white trash Ostrenga she was, she just learned how to keep her mouth shut and keep her shit personality to herself. That's why everyone saying "she needs to act more X/Y/Z or she'll lose her Japanese fans!" are ridiculous. Dakota smiles and acts cute and polite when the cameras are on because that's the only time she really has to. In candid stuff like that video, if she were expected to act a certain way she would have been against a proper background, properly lit and saying her prerehearsed bit like a good little trained monkey. Instead one of the models just decided to do a behind the scenes type of deal and Dakota clearly didn't want to be a part of it.
Um no, it just means "Didn't have plastic surgery?"
Not even directed at her, just a general question.
I do (to both) and I can honestly say that Dakota Japanese is great. Those who say otherwise don't know what they're talking about.
Now all you jelly bitches can go to bed.
I can just read through her posts, that's all. She overuses certain phrases to appear knowledgeable about everything. This is her, too. >>55326
I know it.
no, it's not, it's an open question. more like:
"did she have surgery?" if you want to translate it properly. the show isn't strictly about that, i think they're just curious about her change.

lol, you're paranoid as fuck.
all of those posts are mine. Still not Moemo.
Although we butted heads a couple of times in the early days of PULL, so it's really amusing to me that you think we sound alike.
If I use certain phrases repeatedly, it's because I'm drunk and forgot to read over my post before I hit 'reply'.
Let me guess, you've argued with the little autist, too? You sound like you have a raging hate boner for her.>>55607>i just white knighted an ostrenga
isn't it a bizarre feel?
been following these threads since before the dramaban on /cgl/, never thought it would come to this.
I think Dakota's pretty savvy about managing her reputation. She knows not to respond to her critics directly, but it was pretty obvious she read her own threads and took the complaints into consideration. Her sister's infamy and her earlier tactics are what catapulted her to ~stardom~ but now that she's living independently, she's well-aware that it's not in her best interest to continue providing fresh lolcow milk.

Forgot to add the shoop on this one is ridick. Her most recent editing style is so over the top; the skin blur and whitening, almost doubling her eye size and halving her nose size. If she's gonna keep shooping (which she is) she should tone it down somewhat at least. You can barely see her nose.
Pic added is my favourite picture of Kota because she looks almost…natural? It's still shooped, of course, but at least she looks like a fucking human being and not like a pale alien fetus. Plus, 10 points for smile.
I mean, the shoop on this one >>55609
ok, I'm done now.
At least from what I've heard, there's a huge difference between having a 'working' level of fluency and having a 'native' level of fluency.
I think Dakota's probably familiar enough with the language to get about on her own, but not enough that she would manage well compared to other, native talents. There's a certain amount of jocularity amongst, for example, TV talents or hosts…you need to be more than proficient in a language to contribute to that kind of atmosphere.
Idk, maybe I'm too forgiving towards her, but like mentioned above, it's literally fifteen seconds of video. Difficult to say whether she's really a 'bitch' from that short of a clip.
For a "good" job at a large company (not over seas that is), your Japanese has to be JLPT level 1 or 2, not any lower than that, so basically you have to know how to both read and write.
However for Kota she's just a model and she doesn't really need to know much japanese, and since she is a gajin people won't expect her to use formal language most of the time because baka gajin can do whatever baka gajin wants to. But yeah I think her Japanese isn't bad, and she can get by fine with it.
You don't know what you're talking about.
It depends on each company & your position. Easy as that. I have foreign friends who know NO Japanese and still work for companies you know.
I think it's Kota who doesn't want to hang around them, she's really introverted, it seems. It's obvious in this video >>55310
and in others that the girls want to hang out with her, but she doesn't want to hang out with them. They may have given up since I'm pretty sure >>55630
is more recent than the video of Kota blowing them off.

Her segment aired and she looks pretty cute.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbGynutq74M
If you speak some Japanese the questions are pretty boring, just stuff like where are you from, how old are you, have you had surgery etc.

lol, the guy they had stood next to her was Shirota Yu, a half Spanish/half Japanese actor/idol.
I'm sure her Japanese isn't as fluent as she/her management want people to believe, which is why they had to simplify the questions. The Q&As were very basic.
I agree she looks cute here. I don't really like her attitude, but it's most likely an image created by her management.
She's lived in Japan 3+ years now, she'll definitely be beyond an intermediate level by now.
It's amazing how fast you pick up a language when you're properly immersed in it every day, you adapt incredibly quickly.
oh jesus fuck one of the first things they say to her is YOUR EYES ARE SO BIG
oh god this always makes me uncomfortable
He's really attractive. I'm not into the whole otp thing but I will say they would actually make a really cute couple. I would love it if they dated because it would be another thing to get Kaka jealous since the only Japanese guys interested in her are old.>>55863
I agree, when Kota's real face got out everyone on pull was talking about how ugly/average she is, but tbh I wish I could look like natural Kota.

The model was Vlada Roslyakova and it was prior to her living doll phase, a period where I'm pretty sure she was starving/purging given her dramatically smaller size at the time.
File: 1425240869595.png (317.6 KB, 449x436, lolkota.png)
aww, she's really cute here.
She actually looks a bit relaxed here (for being on set and what not)
Her natural smile is really nice. Hope to see it more.
Fuck, that's adorable.
She really was lovely in that video. I found myself smiling because of how glad I was to see her so cheerful. And it's not forced either, it's like she's genuinely happy. She seemed a little lost a couple of times but I think she may have not understood some things, that being said her Japanese seems good and her pronunciation is awesome. I really wish she would act this natural all the time. I start to really like Kota when I see the rare stuff like this of her being cheery but then it gets washed away by seeing her do her whole bored ice-queen thing all other times.
Because I'm gay and we have a 6th sense for this shit.
She's just shooting off lesbo auras.
I can feel it.
In my vagina.

kiki said mercury was dakota's fave as a kid and dakota scoffed and said "i didn't like mercury, she was a dyke"
kiki didn't make that comment, and dakota didn't insult kiki
inb4 comments about her looking 'fat'.
She seems to have a box-y body shape, but I think she looks just fine. She looks average. I think it's better than the mostly unrealistic thin she shoops herself to be.
The outfit isn't terrible. Honestly, those shorts just dont work well as a high waist choice.
I really like those kind of shoes with thigh highs. Cute.
wow, the 'omg i smiled sooo much while watching her she looks sooo happy so beautiful' posts in this thread are ridiculous
cut the "wow shes happy im sooo happy for her" PC PULL bullshit, it's irritating af>>55990
honestly, this looks like shit
the chin is the size of a satellite, that outfit is terrible and makes her titties look saggy, and it definitely gives her that shapeless boxy look
its not that she's fat or anything, it's that she needs muscle, and i think hip exercises and ab would do her a world of good
her face looks seriously terrible though
Japan isn't having any of her shit.
So many mean comments about her.http://girlschannel.net/topics/309253/
Mostly about her not looking like her photos. The bottom of the page is full of drama and real photos/racist accusations
Shit, now I wish I stuck with my learning nihongo phase lol.
Japanese-speaking anons, are any of them particularly lulzy? What's the gist?

>>56123>>56139>omg her features aren't 10/10 perfect doll that means she's hideous and said features are the ugliest I've seen ever!!!
Don't be so fucking petty, if you seriously think her chin is 'the size of a satellite' then you're either retarded, blinded by hate or Chin-chan.
I'm all for taking the piss out of Dakota but at least make your insults fucking valid.
you briny bitch, they are most definitely valid
in that pic, her tits are hanging v low, and her chin looks, relative to her edits, huge
maybe you're working with a chin the size of Cincinnati so it looks tiny/average in comparison, but it's pretty big. not just long, but wide
File: 1425301316680.jpg (34.75 KB, 384x382, image.jpg)
Ywow great ok she has one prominent feature. But damn calm down she aint jay leno or the crimson chin
Well maybe all the hate is from the japanese equivalents of people like you all lolcows - jelly and hellbent on ripping someone apart
That being being said - only in japan can people openly rip apart other races. In america be prepared to have sjw jump down your throat
Well she certainly ain't helping herself by choosing to have her bangs so long they cut her face in half. It reminds me of those awkward girls in middle school who would always try to hide behind their hair. Unfortunately for Dakota it isn't a good look for her face shape.
Also, you telling me to calm down is cute since I wasn't even who you were replying to originally and you were the one acting devastated just because some anons said her chin was big and it rustled your jimmies. Nice projection btw.
>>56193>all the hate is from jealous Japanese lolcows
Lol, really? So Dakota is a sweet, innocent little princess and everyone who says she's vulgar and doesn't look anything like her shoops is just jealous?
Take your Kotaboner back to PULL and stay there with it. She isn't going to notice you because you stick up for her online, to her you're dogshit unless you're Japanese anyway.
lol, right. that's not it. it's the blatant misrepresentation of 'ethereal beauty' that people are reasonably upset about. sure, some people are jelly that's she's pretty, but tbh, she's mostly an average to pretty girl, not some timeless, eastern european looking, elfish waif doll.
she edits herself to oblivion, young girls see this, and feel like shit about themselves, when it's all a farse.
it's one thing if the companies decided to do this, but tbh, nearly every company she's worked for has given her a more natural look than what she's publicized herself.
she's very average. has no talent, no skills, and adopts a new persona every time she has the opportunity to take one on, just like her crone faced sister.
One of the hilarious and sad parts of the TV appearance is when Yu (the tall guy) came up to her and asked if that was her real eye color… to which she said yes.
She probably felt she wasn't lying, because she picked circle lenses that matched her own eyes, and chose the half-circles that are blank in the middle.
>>56190>you briny bitch
Aw, have you been waiting for a chance to use that one? If anyone's salty here, it's you; pulling weak and irrelevant insults out of your ass due to your blatant jealousy. You'd have to be pretty insecure about yourself to go on and on and exaggerate how someone's average features look ssooo fuked up and ugly omg gross!!!>>56194

File: 1425305167266.jpg (43.89 KB, 377x514, kiki.JPG)
I fucked up and it's not letting me select Japan. I'm not even going to bother since I really suck with this kinda stuff. I was going to post about Kiki since I need some more Kiki drama. My Japanese sucks but if you also want to stir some shit with Kiki this is what I wanted to post, "中央の人がダコタの姉、キキ・カンニバル(Kiki Kannibal)と言う。キキも反日外人が日本で有名になりたい、94のGIFで右の人。彼女ら間には、ダコタが腹黒い行動に詫びた、キキが腹黒い行動に信認しない。ダコタが腹黒いになったのはキキの影響であるだろう。" With pic related.
(Also if anyone has any criticisms on my Japanese, please share them.)
"They didnt have any friends growing up due to being plled frOm school by their parents to pursue internet fame on myspace, which led to kiki dating a famous myspace scene boy named danny, who was 19 (idr how old he really was) and moved in with kiki when she was 14. kiki bragged on myspace about having sex with him often, and danny got kikis face tattooed on his body. cathy would also collect their used condoms for.unknown reasons. danny left when he discovered kiki was lying about beIng older and dumped her, causing her to seek revenge. she posed as another girl and sent messages to danny asking to meet her at a mall for sex and drugs. kiki and her family went to the mall with the police and claims that danny raped kiki and amushed him, causing him to run and jumo frOm the roof of a parking garage and falling to the ground. he was taken to a hospital in a coma and died 3 months later.
to save face, kiki claims danny savagely raped her regularly while they were living together, yet viciosly slanders his name online. years later, she makes threats against people who disagree with her by saying "the last guy to cross me ended up dead".
I tried to shorten it as much as I could, but that's a lot of drama. And fuck me, but whle I was writing the part about him jumping off he roof, I thought to myself "holy shit, a 14 year old girl not only caused the death of an innocent guy, but more than likely saw him fall" and i had to stop for a second. that bitch is evil.
If you japanese is so bad, don't try such complex sentences. Just say "this is dakota's sister”
I would also ask a question stir shit like "彼女も名声見つかるでしょう？"
I feel like you guys are beating a dead horse if that's your only excuse for disliking her.
This shit has literally been going on for years, and the only reason why Dakota is attacked for those titles (as opposed to the two hundred girls on tumblr who are proudly proclaiming themselves kawaii elf princess living dolls uguu in desperate imitation of her) is because she's successful.
If she wasn't, these adopted titles would just be a reason to pity her rather than nitpick every minor flaw in her body and face.>>56203
products containing hydroquinine are banned in both the U.S. and Japan. Plus, Japan is known for having high standards for skincare products, they don't need yo' dollar store bleach.
It's true that some girls might be insecure enough about their appearance to get plastic surgery, but I don't see anything wrong with that if it makes someone happier and more confident.
This argument is grasping at straws.
most of it is just blind hate with thinly veiled excuses for doing so
how bored do you have to be, jaysus
I don't get why people insist on saying she's really cute and has long legs or whatnot.
Like, because some anons are shitting so bad on her, others have the opposite reaction and think she's a sugoi kawaii model.
Let's be honest she's not. She somewhat cute but her belly is unfortunate and I fail to see how her legs are awesome, they seem above average at best and with huge pumps.
She has a cute nose and her face is ok I guess but her chin is terrible to shoot at certain angles. Let's face it, she's a good model if you think marketing yourself is a huge part of a model work, then yes. If we only take shootings, modeling and figure into account she's not model-like.
I want to see her next move though, she can't model forever.
If Kota reads PULL of these threads I wish people would start to encourage her to work out more.
Stupid tweens on PULL were all like "Nooo I don't want her to be all muscly" uh you won't ever be super muscly if you properly work out.

Shit… this is so true.
I've gotta wonder why some people are on lolcow if they don't like people talking badly about their sweet Dakota. Go back to PULL.
>>56193>you all lolcows - jelly and hellbent on ripping someone apart>>56219>obsess over and want to be her, yet seethe jealousy and hatred for her anonymously.
only feels like jealous weeaboo girls that want to ruin her image in japan to make themselves feel better
jfc, you keep interjecting this shit in the thread every several comments or so when none of the discussion has a lick of jealousy in it. nobody's fucking obsessed with her. at best people think she's cute and at worst they think she's boring. you're trying it, though!!
you're grasping at straws to make this thread seem full of mean comments and jelly, yet you're probably the samefag who was flooding the last thread with bitchy comments about that liz girl. hypocrisy kek
Yeah, her features look androgynous there to me.>>56142
And I thought only her YT comment section was dumb enough to even consider her hafu…

Honestly, it's not much more shooping/filters than most people on tumblr/instagram have nowadays.
There have been worse cases.
Right? Obviously opinions on beauty aren't subjective but mere fact, it's impossible for someone to actually find Kota remotely attractive, let alone cute
, it's all a ploy to counteract all the negative comments she always gets for some reason.
he asked if its the real color. she said yes. he said its pretty. she said thanks.
that was a cute moment tho, when she looked up at him and he looked down at little koot
also, besides that, the host asked whats her type. she said "oji-san" which is just like uncle/old guy
after, she just said she wants to be on tv more, she didnt know it would be this fun.
thats basically it
You know what I think is funny?
PULL was created to call Dakota out when /cgl/ got sick of having threads about her that weren't board relevant. It's entire purpose was to expoe her salty, bitchy, rotten cunt personality and how fake she was (and discuss other weeb girls like her), and until the trip and namefags overtook it, it was doing a pretty good job.
Then suddenly Dakota gets noticed by Bravo and moves to Japan and suddenly PULL and weebs all over the internet can't stop whiteknighting her and kissing her ass, talking about how much she's ~changed~ and ~matured~ by living in Japan, even though 99.9% of them never met her or spoke to her online or off.
It's funny to me because it proves just how stupidly desperate they are to defend anything Japan likes no matter what, because Grorious Nippon can do no wrong so if they like Dakota, then obviously it means she's 100% completely different and fully reformed desu~!!
How can you read something and miss the point so bad ?
If you think she's cute even with her stumpy frame that's ok but trying to pretend she got legs that never end or not anything problematic with her apple shaped figure you're deluded.

Her lenses are super obvious when compared this way. Does she wear circle lenses with only a slightly bigger diameter than her actual iris? I'm thinking that's how she gets away with fooling people into thinking they're her real irises and that she just has big 'dolly' eyes, because they're not so big that they look incredibly obvious. I mean, compare her to any other white girl wearing circle lenses and hers look quite natural, and I mean in candid pics/videos/instances where she can't use shoop. Pic related.
File: 1425383990406.jpg (170.94 KB, 1075x539, img.jpg)
They aren't larger than these ones. Same brand, same series.
That brand goes natural and "dolly" at the same time in person. Those look huge :x
File: 1425398195166.png (152.8 KB, 498x244, kotakotilens.png)
She either wears Beaucon Shimmer Blues or Geo Angel Blue lens.
I dont know why she'd lie about that on set. No one has light eyes with that thick of a dark outer circle. Let alone take up that much of the eye naturally. C'mon Kota.
No way. Beaucon Shimmers are much
smaller. I own a pair in brown.
File: 1425398706452.png (122.63 KB, 373x340, Kotakoti_fake_eyess.png)
Dakota's always worn lenses with a very slim limbal ring, never as thick as the Princess Mimi series. idk what you're smoking but I want some.>>56674
I think Beaucon Shimmers is a lot more likely. Pic related from ED.
File: 1425399435170.jpg (42.05 KB, 600x800, 8f0f7a9d6d6d75fbec2e9fc3436d62…)
It's not like if she wears the exact same all the time.
Pic related looks like >>56673
It's possible that she changed the type of lense that she wears, but remember that this picture is also from a photoshopped advertising shoot. They would have made adjustments to color & facial features.
Also, I'm not sure about this, but aren't most models required to show up to shoots without lenses or prior styling…? Idk if Japan is as rigorous about this, since I've heard accounts that claim Dakota does her own makeup at shoots, but at least at castings it's normally required that you wear minimal makeup.
yet another loophole by the ostrengas.
literally im pretty sure all real models are supposed to go to castings with a fairly natural look. dakota never mentions casting - just photo shoots. but of course, why would she mention casting - where editors and whatnot rip you apart.
actually most of her major updates are just saying "photography is done"
File: 1425410085328.jpg (231.49 KB, 736x981, korea.jpg)
I think it's interesting that Japan allows her to do her own makeup in every single shoot. But when she went to Korea, all of photos clearly had makeup done by other people (not to mention that their shoop was a million times better).
File: 1425413218771.jpeg (86.15 KB, 400x600, Dakota-koti-play-etude-house-s…)
Korea has also seen through her bullshit very fast
You're supposed to send in candid shots of youraelf, usually in a bikini with little to no makeup and your hair pulled back to agencies before you even get signed and she never did that with Bravo, they just snapped her up because they thought her shoops were real.
If she had actually done a proper casting, she would still be in Florida living with her parents and sister.
The tweet that followed was her saying "and then I looked down at my shoes".
It looks like she completely removed it. I can't even find the keyword "tall" anywhere in her tweets. I know that these two tweets were referenced on PULL once and that must be why she deleted them.. though it was mostly likely because of the "you look just like your pictures" part.
File: 1425429134673.jpg (45.96 KB, 751x480, oct22013.JPG)
Speaking of deleted shit, when people were talking about the picture Kaka gifted to Kota, I went looking for the ameblo entry where she talks about being grateful for her sis despite their fights, and it's no longer there. Here's the tweet pertaining to it, though.
are you sure it was on twitter?
For some reason I feel like it was on her tumblr.
She said in Japanese that she hated kimchi which just made it worse.
She didn't even use suki janai, but kirai. That is like pure hatred lol. She was still learning Japanese so she probably didn't realize how strong the word kirai is.
Also apparently there's a thing floating around saying the etude workers didn't like her attitude and how she didn't look like her pics.
also i found this and i'm laughinghttp://www.my-fashionbank.com/models/user/7657.html
File: 1425450948737.gif (234.94 KB, 500x313, tumblr_lqoffghjpI1qljbqro1_500…)
Reminder of Dakota's real eyes. Just to put into perspective of how stupid people are for believing her circle lenses are real.
This is Kota? What's this from? I haven't seen it before.
So that pretty much makes even her saying that it was her real eye colour in >>55860
a lie. Her eyes are a much more saturated and deeper blue with her lenses in. In your picture they're more greyish blue.
I feel bad for whatever poor dumb guy she tricks into marrying her, he'll wake up one day and his kawaii real living barbie doll wil have turned into a pumpkin, lol.
So this means Kota wears her circle lenses pretty much 24/7 when she's anywhere she could be seen? That's sad. I can't imagine ow insecure she must ne, even with all this hype and attention she gets. All the attention in the world can't fix a broken personality caused by being taught you're only worth shit if you're famous.
>>57000>dieting for years
Yep. Her upper arms are twice the size of Korean models in >>56742>>57150
Personally I'm 50/50 on the lesbian thing, but let's say she is… could you actually see her coming out of the closet?
File: 1425478177111.jpg (36.58 KB, 600x800, B_QjXx6U4AAyVr8.jpg)
Is her elbow warping towards her waist or is it just the angle?
she has a job where she will constantly be judged for her appearance, even if her images do get shooped, she still has to look somewhat like her shooped images.
Plus maybe knowing people online speculate the validity behind every aspect of her appearance makes her want to look her best. I'm not saying she isn't wearing lenses or that she lied about wearing them, but that if she said they're her natural eye color because it's a near perfect match, then I wouldn't consider it an outright lie about her eyes in general.
terribad waist shoop.
Also, is her hair cut to her shoulders now?
she cant even zip those pants i guess…
im not even being mean but its literally a fact she is not shaped like that.

Not trying to defend her but when you have a low body weight elbows frequently jut out just like that when viewed at that angle.
Her body weight isn't
low though, she isn't as skinny as Gemma Ward, Gemma's arms are super thin and that's why the elbow sticks out so much, but Dakota's arms aren't really that thin at all. I've noticed they're slightly on the chubbier side if anything. Even in >>57164
where it's edited to hell, her arms still look bigger than Gemma's.
I've seen girls at a higher weight than Dakota who've had their elbows jut out like this.
You have to bear in mind, not everybody's fat distribution is exactly the same. I've noticed too that she gains weight in her upper arms but her forearms have always appeared pretty thin to me.
Come on, anon. It's so obviously shoop. I'm not gonna start throwing insults at you just because you don't agree with me because there's waaay too much of that in this thread, but you have to see how unnatural it looks compared to the picture of Gemma. It juts out a lot more.
I also just noticed how squiggly and compressed the creases where her armpit is/where her arms press against her boobs look. Definitely shooped. Looks like she pushed in on her arms to make them thinner and used the bloat tool on her boobs.
I think her elbow just looks funny in the image. Bony elbows tend to jut both ways (towards and away from the body) and hers just sticks out inside, while being totally flat away from her. That's what struck me as strange. She seems to not have a joint facing away.
Her stomach looks really weird though. Obvious edit there. Something is wrong with her navel in this photo.
File: 1425489627520.jpg (77.21 KB, 480x640, ogfJurV.jpg)
It's from her old tumblr, kotakoti.tumblr.com (it's still there, check the archive)>>57132
She's too selfish to marry anyone>>57176
There are many pics of her in a bikini from Popteen proving otherwise, and let's not forget the beach video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbWIoUFnjL4>>57196
honestly, I think dakota is losing a lot of weight suddenly, very fast. (pic related) but she also seems to know how to pose with her arms, sticking her elbow inwards to make the bone show more
her elbow juts out strangely, though. like it sticks out a little too high above the actual joint part when it`s supposed to look more like >>57196
. her chubby upper arms are very noticeable, so we`d have seen if she had bony elbows before. the shoop is making it seem like her upper arms are the same or even smaller than her forearms, which is ridiculous for her.
it`s like >>57209
says. if you have bony elbows, it sticks out on both sides like with gemma ward. if you have thin arms, the forearm muscle is a lot more prominent compared to your forearm and upper arm, so it sticks out like your elbow.
i wanna add that she looks flat chested here and that although her waistline isn`t unbelievably small or anything, it`s obvious from magazines that she is more rectangular
if she's lost a lot of weight lately it's probable that her hair simply started falling out rapidly & she had to cut it because it started looking thinner than ever
tbh i wish she'd do something like teaching as a native speaker instead and drop the model thing - it's taking a huge toll on her confidence and she doesn't quite enjoy being a social butterfly..
Wow, she's really insecure about her tummy in that video, she's covering it with her arms.
On a side-note, Yulayula's bikini is adorable.
right. kiki is quite slim and apparently in all the right places.
dakota… could go for the soft/squishy/chubster fetish market, but her fat is oddly distributed. like her tummy is ok and it would be cute if her thighs were a little bigger but no her legs are disproportionately slim
Kiki is just bony as fuck
I'd rather have kota's skinnyfat body
I just watched that whole video and she was barely in it.>>57218
I'd be the same tbh since everyone just talks about how fat she is…even though she .
File: 1425511146886.jpg (23.86 KB, 510x330, CUBITUS.jpg)
I think she has cubits valgus deformity. I have the same thing and my arms are not that thin. Mine is due to Ehlers-Danlos, though.

What are you smoking, the ring of Princess Mimi Almond Brown is thin as fuck.
are you people fucking serious
she doesnt have deformity, because her arms dont do that shit
why is it so difficult for people to accept that she shoops cell pix?? bitch lies like mad, and always has done

This angle sure doesn't flatter her.
to wear the Beaucon Shimmer Blue lenses when she was in America, but now she wears Princess Mimi Almond Brown.
>>57210>She's too selfish to marry anyone
IDK, I could see her pulling a Kanadajin for a permanent resident visa and just pretending to be single. >>57244
You need at least a BA to teach English in Japan with any credibility. You can do it without one but the places that would employ you are sketchy as f.
…almnond brown IS a grey color, see >>57302

You are confusing them with the Bambi series, there is no other color than Almond Brown.
File: 1425521332345.jpg (465.32 KB, 1936x1936, image.jpg)
I dunno, these are Princess Mimi Grey (in sunlight) compared to Kota
If she wore brown lenses her eyes would look brown…
I just think the Princess Mimi series are way too artificial-lookng. look at those hard black edges…
There's no way Kota would wear those & be able to pretend that her eyes were natural, it would give the whole game away. The patter on the top picture lenses looks way softer.
This. Putting her warped body down to a (probably uncommon) deformity rather than bad shoop when we know for a goddamn fact that Kota is the Queen of Photoshop and never
posts a picture/video without editing it to hell and back beforehand. Seriously guys, which seems more likely? Come on.

I was actually talking about the shoop fail of a nose as well as the back. All Tiara Mily photos have some wierd shoop going on when they didn't just paste stuff on her.
File: 1425572109334.jpg (197.01 KB, 600x800, Furisode.jpg)
Her eyes here
Also tbh im jealous of this photoshoot. those furisodes are so so pretty
The pasting on of the clothes is so hilarious to me. It's so
cringy. I would be super embarrassed if I were Dakota, having modeled for a company that's as shoddy and cheap as that.>>57551
Her limbal ring is very thick here. so nachuraru eye karaa~~
And agreed. It's fucking gorgeous.
Not true. The BA is for the working visa, or if you apply as a professor and not teacher.
SOME require BA but most don't. As long as you qualify for a visa most of them don't care. Assuming you pass the interview ofc
File: 1425577824407.jpg (22.06 KB, 204x491, bikini2.JPG)
She looks pretty slim but seems to carry her weight in her hips and stomach…
I thought apple shaped people tend to carry most of their weight in the upper body as opposed to their legs
I also thought that people with slim limbs but a large waist line went by a different body shape
File: 1425584537706.jpg (125.94 KB, 944x517, inverted-triangle-1.jpg)
I just remembered that it's called the inverted triangle, which I always associated with the apple shape since it's meant to be the direct opposite of the pear shape, right? (idk, I probably understood it this way)
I knew a girl in hs with the worst
case of inverted triangle body shape, her limbs were slim, except her thighs would rub together like nobody's business, almost as though she were walking with one foot in front of the other, but she didnt.

okay, she looked super cute in this segment but I just had to cap this.
she has really pretty lips when they're not shooped down to tiny doll lips. i wish i had lips like that. >>57666
oh my god how can you skip that? unless they kept it so it could be cute but… sexy?? i dont know its gross.
