No, they were legit. A girl from my old comm had one of their dresses, and one of theirs was my first DD. I never owned it though. I think their business model was too ambitious though, they didn't get enough buyers for what they were selling sadly.

>reposting bc new thread
When I first got into the fashion like around 2009 or so, I was scared of egl livejournal because I was used to forums but it didn't feel anon enough. I was part of a fairly quiet lolita forum. I think it was a euro forum? I remember there being a very beautiful girl with extremely long straight hair, an older girl (maybe a mod) who was very into Django Reinhardt and gypsy guitar, and a girl whose DD was pic related. It was a very friendly and small forum, mostly classic and gothic lolitas I think, and they were very kind to me as a useless noob who just wanted to understand. I know it's not much, but does anyone know what that forum might have been?

>> No.10075024

I do remember her posting semi-regularly in the getoffegl comment section, though.

A lot of people had dumb edgy usernames back then. I remember when LJ and its offshoots were starting to turn SJW (“you can’t say something is stupid, that’s ableist!!”) and much of it was coming from people who were making “surprise buttsex” jokes only a few months earlier.

IIRC it was because they sat and laid down on the actual gravestones, which is a bit different than just posing next to them. If I went to visit my granddad’s grave and saw some weird gothic doll girl pose next to it I wouldn’t really care but if she were sprawled out on top it would ruffle my jimmies a bit. Their reaction to the initial criticism was in the vein of “lol fuck the haters” too and I’m sure we all know how well that goes down in most online communities.

>> No.10075330

I remember a friend did a shoot in a graveyard and had a picture were they were lying in an empty stone coffin and that pissed of some people and got posted to loli secrets despite it being ok in my country to do that at the place.

If anyone remembers Sae from the AP clone days, shes married and has a baby and doesn't seem to wear lolita anymore, which makes me sad. She had a popular blog, a big wardrobe, and friends she frequently hung out with and one day she just stopped. it makes me worried if one day that will happen to me. does anyone else have these fears?

I actually did a little looking and it turns out she switched blogs after awhile. I found this comment, google translate shows its someone asking her if shes worn lolita recently (this is a post from 2011)

My friend recently shared a link to an old Youtube video, it was a clip from a TV program that featured two Lolita’s from my country. In the comments people were reacting stuff like how one was too fat and the other too ita, and that they both were a big disgrace for our community. It surprised me that the girl was not hiding who she was, but then I remembered that back in the days people in our comm just publicly shitted on other members. Can you imagine something like that happening now? If you do not give someone asspats, your pretty much bullied out of the community with all those SJWs.

>> No.10076117

Eh I think it's not necessarily about social justice, but that we are becoming more aware of being kind to other people. Kindness in and of itself is not necessarily related to social justice. I for one am glad that our Communities have come down a little bit, I remember back in the day people like Celticfreefall picking on people who were younger and prettier than them just because they could. Nowadays we wouldn't really stand for that. Yes, we're more shady and salty, but we're less actively malicious. I think that's a good thing.

>> No.10076160

I don’t miss that kind of drama, but I do dislike it that we have to be careful of everything we say. You can’t even tell someone something isn’t Lolita, without getting attacked by the knights of friendliness. Pretty much no one in my comm dares to say what we all think/gossip about.

I miss this one girl called visual ichiko (finnish,i think?) who stopped posting on daily lolita pretty early (she was totally gone by around 2009/2010 and posted in 2007/2008). Idk why i just found her so cute.
I also miss the whole "lifestyle" aspect lolita had (and how people weren't as SJW-ish as today so you could make jokes without somebody crying about it).

>> No.10079067

To add to your comment, I'm pretty sure the reason she stopped Candy Violet was that she and her husband divorced. She put the shop on hiatus when she was moving then just abandoned it. And as you said, now she's a burlesque dancer making bank on burlesque clothes.

Shame, I really did like her vintage inspired designs.

I mean, happens all the time. Could have been that they entered into a business together--anyone else remember their brief shop where they were selling 'lifestyle' nighgowns aka nightgowns with a ruffle--and it went sour. Could have been clashing personalities. Could have been feeling like they were competing for lifestyle points. Or all of the above.

>> No.10079520

I remember her. I was really sad when she decided to move on from the fashion as her outfits were really kitschy and quirky towards the end.

>> No.10079638

Wasn't she shopping addicted? She basically went minimalist to kick her addiction to shopping, I think...so now she can just be obsessed with reusing everything instead.

>> No.10079642

This is pretty much the whole of it.
Her fans were super creepy, buying dresses from her just because "milkyfawn wore this dress", and the real ugly shit emerged when she stopped doing deerstalker videos. Fans acted like they were entitled to her as a public figure but she just didn't want it and people talked real nasty shit just because she wanted to step back from it. Her addiction to buying lolita was pretty publicly apparent and materialism was even very noticeable in her videos.

Last I heard, she hasn't worn lolita in ages and is living a minimalist lifestyle. I imagine it's a good change for her, I hope she's doing well.

I miss In the Starlight, especially when they would let you get custom pieces in any colors you wanted. A lot of their designs were... garish, but they had some good staple skirts, blouses, etc, that were great for building up a wardrobe. I'm still kicking myself for not keeping most of my ITS pieces. The dress I have from 2008 has held up really well.

i still have one of the old cupcake petticoats, i think i got it in 2007. it's way too big for me now since i lost a lot of weight since then, and it's hella deflated so it can't be worn on its own, but i pin it and wear it still occasionally on top of a bell petti to give it a little cupcake shape oomph.

i don't think i'll ever be able to bring myself to throw it away because it was the very first lolita item i ever bought.

she'd say a bunch of edgy shit in like 2008/2009 to get a rise out of people, i think her getoffegl tag is still there

i felt kind of bad for her for a while because she seemed to grow out of her edgelord phase but never could really be accepted into online communities, and since she'd posted her face as sniper_nyan it's not like she could make another account just for posting outfits etc. she's been pretty active off and on, on the blogosphere and social media, since then. i think she's a software developer irl

This. She also made a paypal and said if people donated $5000 she'd reveal herself, and "you know who I am". So basically a light scam since it turned out that she was a nobody in the comm.

So who was lunagoonie anyway? The person with the mushroom avatar that constantly was on getoffegl and all over any lolita drama. They claimed to be two people under one account, but I doubt it.
