So who is getting Silent Moon in a few hours? What colourway are you planning on getting? How does everyone feel about the changes, and the other cuts & colourways not getting released?

I'm real sad that my favourite colourway isn't getting rereleased, especially if they're claiming that the printing method is better this time. I get it that brands aren't going to pander to us, but I've felt pretty let down by every moitie rerelease so far and was hoping the SM rerelease would be different.

If you're implying that she's deleting comments it's probably more that gulls came straight here to discuss it anonymously rather than publicly in her comments. Most of the comments are about her looks, or about board culture in general, not cgl. I assume a large portion of her audience crosses over with Lor, who says all lolitas should be lovelies and pretend this place doesn't exist. Most of them probably don't know or care enough about cgl to talk about it.

>>10193633
Honestly I still fail to understand what sets Tyler apart from any other efamous lolitas. Her coords and production value are mediocre and the long winded 'lady of salt' persona is the only thing she has going for her. It's the thing that gets her flown out to cons and collabs and shit but like others have said she goes for the low hanging fruit. The most 'controversial' or 'offensive' thing she's ever done is probably insulting Kelly Eden's bad boob job. I'm glad she denounced this place so gulls will finally stop putting her on a pedestal.

>>10193650
Is she really "scathing" though? Maybe compared to Lor. She doesn't have interesting coords or high production quality. Her whole persona is just saying what everyone else is thinking in the most long winded way possible. Not like she's ever had particularly hot takes on anything.

>>10193644
It’s funny you should say that because under the facade, Lor is not really that nice, anyone paying attention can see that when her persona slips. But I’ve watched Tyler meet fans and she is very sweet to them. She did not ‘denounce’ 4chan, she pretty much just called it what it is. I’m guessing she got enough requests to do a video on it and just did one.

>> No.10193664

I live here and most of the comments are pretty fucking true. It's like defending having a meet at Dennys. It's shit, but maybe you enjoy eating shit from time to time. Doesn't make it a five star restaurant.

This place has always been a cesspool and always will be. It's better these days in some respects, but she's basically right.

What do you want her to say? It's a place full of roses and rainbows? You know it's not true. Half of your are bitter roleplayers in sissy dresses or 5th hand bodyline at best and probably got their feelings hurt.

Black x gold is what I was hoping for too, it's one of my dd's and I was really looking forward to buying it new. I'm wondering if the gold print was difficult to do, even though they said their printing methods improved.

I've asked myself this, particularly with the regular influx of noobies we get always parroting "if u brok da rulez u an ita", like that's not how it works at all. Would be great if we had something easier to tell them than throw the rule book at them, or something that works better than "it has to look good", which is very simple and understandable, but then they tend to mistake that to mean "it's ita if it's not to my personal taste".

I think a good coord is just simply eye-pleasing, while also sticking to aesthetics of that style. Given that "ita" is supposed to mean "this is so ugly it hurts my eyes to look at it".

The style aesthetics is what makes it difficult to figure things out. Like a suicide girl might look good with all her tats and piercings, but put her into lolita aesthetics and suddenly it doesn't look good at all, at least not from a lolita's aesthetic view. Similarly, "properly fitting" clothes and some makeup are considered a pleasing aesthetic for most modern lolita style, but then you get to old school when the clothes were made rather loose and barely anyone caked on the makeup, and suddenly "charmingly frumpy" becomes a pleasing aesthetic instead of something to avoid.

Nayrt but I'm not offended by her either, I'm just slightly annoyed by her hypocrisy. And besides, any group of people (online or otherwise) is bound to be a mixed bag. Anonymity might encourage bad behavior, but it also makes cgl less saccharine and fake-nice than facebook.

I agree with this, and it's the one thing that does keep me coming back. But she is calling it for what it is, most of the time, and letting people know to take concrit posted here with a grain of salt. Sometimes it's helpful, other times, it's something that can't be helped without time (just being fat), or expensive and/or invasive surgery (having the wrong nose shape for the style you like). Roleplayers are everywhere and it's a goddamn eternal summer anymore.

I don't participate in the negative aspects because karma is a bitch. But I do enjoy going through coordinate threads, general, sewing/handmade, art threads or other related topics. I love the really great things that came out of here, like derpy-chan. Participating in secret santa here has always been a yearly highlight and a joy.

If it weren't for this place, I wouldn't have gotten my hands on a few dream dresses or missed out on important things.

So while it has a really rotten exterior, the good parts do make it worthwhile for those of us who are less salty.

I don’t believe it either. She posts here. But I understand her reasoning why she wouldn’t want to say it. But saying “I only lurk and don’t post” is an obvious lie. It would have been better to just not say if or if not you post here. But now knowing she does come here and the last thread about her channel, I wonder if she is going to take any of the good advice that was given in that thread into consideration. Once that thread happened, her content got back onto track to its main theme for a while. So there is some improvement.

The reactions to prints, the news with drama, and just people's real thoughts in general. You cannot get that stuff in the stupidly restrictive wasteland of Rufflechat.

While I'm in the same boat and agree wholeheartedly with the rest of your points, this

>letting people know to take concrit posted here with a grain of salt

And her coverage of the topic in general is what's problematic. Her advice, while true, was to "do nothing" and then proceeded to call out how much of a cesspool this place is, including the different types of 'meanies' outside of the possible normal individuals, (who were spoken about in a single breath and then completely forgotten, as if to say, "well not everyone/everything is mean here! If I said that I'd look like a meanie myself"). That, and to 'question their credibility', as if anyone who has criticisms is just trolling. This is just the same tired schlock that's been beaten to death by every other famous lolita, just in a new packaging and, thinking about it, that's probably what bugs me the most. It's just another shallow, long winded video making a big bad villain out of something when an actual hot take about what goes on here would have been more substantial and perhaps given the community a better understanding that this is just another place for shared interests, albeit sometimes harsh, crass, and not for everyone - you know, like the real world, or any other community for that matter. She uses this cesspool herself, clearly, so I'm not sure why she wouldn't go for this angle; she's covered deeper subjects in more complex ways before.

Though, much like every other thread, this will be forgotten in a month and it'll be down to brass tacks as usual. Missed opportunity from someone who's essentially biting the hand that feeds her, honestly.

Really? I left and came back after the vid and it looks like there’s still a ton of larpers and very little decent convo. i I checked some old archived threads to be sure it wasn’t nostalgia goggles, but no. There is considerably less decent info dumps, coord threads, actual convo about the fashion that doesn’t involve meme posting about what is and isn’t casual lolita (ffs guys).

Tyler talking about surgery to become Stacey reminds me more of Crystal Cafe than /cgl/.
But as far as 4chan boards go, this is one of the tamest. Most of the cancer is contained within the feels thread. Vendettas and bad concrit are usually called out. Nitpicks can be safely ignored.
Personally I feel like the ita thread is an invaluable resource for newbies. Before I ever threw a coord together I read through the ita thread for a while until I could identify what was (or wasn't) wrong with a coord. It can be hard to gain a sense for good coords without seeing examples of bad ones.
Maybe there are crossboarders calling girls fat in the CoF thread but I feel like most people who post in the general threads seem to know what they're talking about.

If you want to lean into the character, I think it becomes a question of where to wear the whole outfit, rather than whether it looks lolita or not. Keep in mind that when you go to a lolita meet, not everybody is going to be interested in anime/manga/vidya/whatver, and most of them don't really care whether you're dressed as x or y character. I'd say keep the character outfits for cons or fanmeets or wherever your fandom ranks higher up than lolita does.

For lolita meets, the important thing isn't who this character is, it's whether your outfit looks good. Try to assess it from that angle, like do these shoes look okay, is this dress too outlandish, does this hair match the dress, etc. With these in mind, the collab outfit you posted in your image looks fine as is for lolita, but something like this Meta collab would just be too outlandish for lolita.

Don't think about things like "this character always wears x and her boots must always be colour". That's the path where people start making poor choices like shoehorning weird cheap fleamarket items in because "this character likes it", and then it becomes costumey.

In other words, keep your fandom and your lolita seperate. Yes, it's possible to combine them, but if you give priority to fandom while dressing for a lolita, your outfit ends up looking "cosplay lolita". If you give priority to lolita while doing a fandom character, you end up being out of character.

8k views within 24 hours for a niche sub culture content. Tyler knew it would instantly be posted here, thus increasing views. Also knowing, this edition would be given exposure amongst those who hate 4chan/cgl and it will be referenced for years to come to those who are new to the fashion. I think it was good "publicity" for her channel. I also think it will bring healing for those who have been attacked on this platform. Attacked for physical, medical, personal reasons outside of their coords. I am glad she addressed it, so many pretend that all Lolita's are super sweet and accepting.

A male name means nothing good, really. It's a troon, a probably terrible brolita, someones boyfriend who knows nothing about the fashion. or a scalper.

Yes. Their definition of fat has not been padded and inflated by HAES or Body Positivity.
They call it like it is.
Overweight = anything above an actual normal weight = fat

It's the nature of polyester, they're so different and so difficult to dye sometimes you can dip a bright red skirt into bleach and it won't even budge the colour. When you get the process right the dye goes pretty deep into the polyester and stays there. Similarly, even if there's a dye runoff, you still need a whole different process to get the polyester to "take" the dye, so instead the dye runoff simply washes out.

Natural fibres like cotton are bleached white and then dye really easily to begin with. If you overload a fibre with too much colour (not just red, blue and black are also problem colours) then the extra dye runs off. If there's white cotton it'll be pretty easily stained by the extra dye since the fabric dyes easily to begin with.

>Most of the world, including your nationality, see you as an American with American values and American mindset
Haha are you high, this is not true. If you don't look white you don't get this assumption, you get the "where are you from" "your English is so good" "go back to your country" - again, a Japanese person born and raised in Japan surrounded by other Japanese people don't have this experience. But as a Japanese American born in America, it's assumed you're foreign and don't belong. Why is this such a hard concept for you to grasp.

I use my bf's paypal because I don't like storing payment info online, so if it's something like that I wouldn't overthink it. But if you've seen pics of the person, that's more concerning.

The last time I sold something to someone with a male name on their paypal they tried to pay with e-checks that didn't clear, then explained they had money problems and requested a payment plan, never followed through with said payment plan, and then I found out later through someone else they'd actually bought a more expensive dress after they'd 'bought' from me, and for some unknown reason simply decided to waste my time?

Trolls like to complain girls have so much drama, but the guys in this hobby definitely skew towards having more than a few screws lose.

Do you live in the deep south or some shit? Because here on the west coast all the asian-americans are basically white people in asian skin suits, and act like it.

Seems like Moitié is not planning to make more stock for Silent Moon. They will re-upload canceled orders if there are any and keep us up-to-date. In a later tweet they adviced people who are still looking for it to contact store and ask if postorder is available.

No, but I bet even on the west coast the people you describe still face racism just by nature of being not-white and being in America.

asian people in the west aren't oppressed and don't get to claim a form of blackface when they never dealt with the same oppression as black Americans.

You're assuming every Japanese American is the same. Some have dual cit/green cards and go back often/live there for some of their life.

A popular alt right trope is to claim that racism can't exist (for black people or anybody else) in the US, because Asians are successful. Sometimes it kind of seems like people want to be oppressed just so they can protest more on social media.
