yes and no. i think a lot of it comes down to face shape. people with smaller faces can get by with some blush on top of full coverage foundation, granted it isn’t caked on like frosting. but lors face is not small, so the apple cheeked blush really isn’t helping. i agree and think contour could help, but i think she looks better with temple blush too. i’ve even seen her wear foundation far lighter than her natural tone which doesn’t help her either

>> No.10414952

There are so many ways Lor could have approached this and of course she went with the fakest shit.

No offense to her, I don't have as much of a hateboner for her as others seem to have on this board, but if I wanted someone to learn the coording basics I would never send someone to lor.

The problem is that no one can decide on what info should go into the guidebook and what the guidelines should be. If people could come up with a generalized table of contents without infighting, it would make things a lot easier.

it would be nice if a guidebook neutrally addressed certain things that cause a divide and there's no hivemind opinion on them like cat ears, sneakers, design replicas and such instead of saying it's a "rule" to be against those things. i feel like that's what a lot of old guides were stupid about... keep to facts instead of opinions

I like my Elegy stuff a lot, though I've been really put off by how poor the communication is with the owner. I've literally never gotten a response from her despite sending multiple emails over multiple months about multiple orders.

For me it's not so much that she's ugly but that she absolutely refuses to do anything to complement her features. She's not pretty, but she could make herself look good if she didn't make the most unflattering makeup/clothing choices 100% of the time. It makes her a terrible source of information for newbies because it makes them think they never need to take into account how things look on them personally, which I think is a really important part of styling.

I'm just sick of how racialized people are becoming. I don't understand how people don't get Human Behavior 101 but our tribalistic trendancies get triggered the more and more importance we place on our differences. It literally encourages "othering" (not equating humans with certain beliefs / differences / preferences as equally human) and re-enforces negative tensions between groups.

The fact that Lor is adding to this just bothers me. By making a video about Lolitas based on their skin color she is literally invoking the notion we should not see them as the same as "us" (everyone else) and should judge or treat them as a separate unit. Overall it's unintentionally racist and a bad take; she's encouraging a sense of "us and them" instead of treating them as the collective "us". Lolitas should be Lolitas; calling out our biological differences only creates barriers of understanding.

>> No.10415262

There are actually quite a bit of other lolitas on Youtube. I honestly think that the main draw to Lor and Tyler are that they are not "look at me kawaii uwu" types. By that I mean they are not extremely perfectly cute, with a stupid voice, and dont just do stupid hauls with a "look how cute I am" try on at the end. Yes some of their videos have those things, but its more the accessibility of the regular person I find appealing about them. I love that Lor doesn't have a perfect kawaii face. I love that Tyler has a deeper voice and just says her own opinion. I also like FluffyKawaiiJo for that reason.

On top of that, all 3 of them create videos on actally interesting topics beyond "lolita 101" and "i bought some AP".

The real question is what should go into the guidebook? Topics like terminology are a must, but what about other topics? Lolita is so much more involved in the actual physical process of wearing the fashion that it can't be described on paper.

>> No.10415300


Is she upset because it's a huge amount of work she wasn't expecting/prepared for? Does she think the sudden boost in orders is performative?

All of Callie's stuff looks mass produced so it's not like she needs to worry about hand making anything like a MTO shop. And if she is making them herself and feeling overwhelmed she should look into how to restrict her orders or stock properly like other indie kawaii artists do with limited shop updates and releases.

>> No.10415309

I think she's very aware of how she looks in comparison to cutesy model youtube lolitas and tries her hardest to imitate them but showing that specific type of vulnerability isn't trying really hard to play catch-up isn't super kawaii or something to make you root for her it's just sad and pitiable no matter how relatable it could be so it's not a main feature of her channel.

Yes, I mistyped. It happens a lot.

She needs to humble herself. She was just bitching about how the lack of orders and money was making her depressed.
Now she’s mad that blackness trending has caused an uptick in orders? Bitch....

Look, I’m not near on their levels of influential, but recently I got an uptick in followers as well. Am I miffed? Fuck no, because it means I get a chance to prove WHY they should be following me in general instead of just because it’s the cool thing to do right now.
Rather than have a shit fit about why they’re probably following you, give them content that makes them genuinely want to stay.

Either lor has poor taste when it comes to dresses, or she genuinely doesn't care about the quality of the dresses these black creators make and , instead, only care about the fact that they're black and thus can fill a slot in this video.

Lor even reacted to Darcei's video and got whiny and butthurt that she wasn't invited because it's her comm/'friends' and cried about it on camera even though people explained that they didn't want a bigger YouTuber just taking over the video with their presence/also filming, etc.

Honestly Darcei is so cute in everything she tries and I like seeing more non plus sized black lolitas (all well dressed black lolitas regardless of size are cute, I just like having weight loss inspo/aspirational people with similar body types and skin tones to me) so if she were to get more into lolita I would eat her content up

She just made a video with another dress of theirs like last week.
She literally just scrolled past all the BLM posts on their Instagram and pointed out the first post she saw with a dress in it without even reading it's caption. It's just a coord to go with one of their headpieces. If this ain't performative BS, I don't know what is.

I remember that video, I don't really watch Lor but saw that vid in relation to Darcei and wondered what was the drama on that. Oh well.

I understand on that second part. I've been hunting down black lolitas for their make-up and hair styles because the bright stuff doesn't exactly look right with my skin tone. Darcei hass been my favorite not only because she's fun and goofy but without her makeup she looks similar to me and following her makeup helps the most.

Yeah desu her personality isn't out of the ordinary at all, it's pretty similar to that of me and a lot of other college aged relatively educated black girls I know (I mean desu I'm probably far more 'weird' than someone like Darcei); kinda quirky and funny/silly but really normie desu with some weeb/koreaboo interests in there.

I know Liza by name but never watch her content; most famous content creators on YouTube aren't all that special and are usually popular because they are awkard and basic like everyone else or seem relatable in the first place (being attractive by eurocentric standards--or to any specific niche audience--and willing to film yourself doing silly things and post it are kinda all you need to get a guaranteed 100K subs if you post consistently) so it's not a surprise she is really similar personality wise to other people.

is it racist / fetishizing if you feel attracted / repulsed to specific genetic traits? Isn't that just normal attraction / preferences? I'm no woke sjw treehugger and always wondered.

>> No.10420188

Maybe in your circles but not in mine.

Well I think attraction can be based on more than just looks.
The point is that if someone refuses to date certain races, they clearly have trouble accepting those types of people. And only dating one race is being closed minded. Like, I wouldn't say if you only met one black person and didn't want to date them because you didn't find them attractive that you were racist.
But if you said that you just didn't want to date any black people? That's pretty extreme and a weird preference to have.

I have dated white guys as a Filipino woman and it just didn't work out with any men I dated, regardless of their race because I don't just date certain races.
I'm no longer attracted to men because I had such horrible experiences with them but that's a different conversation.

So I think when it comes down to it, really depends on your intent. Like do you not find them attractive because you think those races usually have those genetic traits? What about the ones who don't have those traits? Sure races have similarities but it's never the same across the board.

No, and humans in general are most attracted to their own race due to how biology works. People are naturally attracted to those with similar features to themselves.

This is autistic as fuck.

The race of an author should have absolutely no basis on the type of book you buy unless it is autobiographical. Buy shit you want, if black people want to sell things, make things people want to buy or can't get anywhere else. It's like people buying 'handmade indigenous' woven baskets that sell for like $300 in museum gift shops. These baskets aren't fucking worth $300, they are worth $30 at best. Then they complain that nobody is buying their wares and it's because of racism people won't pay $300 for a basket. Like, fuck. Maybe don't spend your entire week making one basket? Steamline your process and make it into an actual business, not a hobby that you expect white guilt to fund. The Japanese figured this shit out like 140 years ago when they realised nobody gave a shit they were outpacing their fuedal society full of MUH BUSHIDO.

I say this because I frequent my cities art museums and without fail every time I leave, there is the exact same 'indigenous' crafts sitting in the exact same spot in the gift shop for months, some years. A fucking hand-woven coin purse is $75 made by some indigenous person! IT'S NOT EVEN GOOD QUALITY! Then I walk out to the train station and get called a 'fucking white dog' because I don't give some indigenous minority money to spend on crack.

Yes and it's not ok to dislike someone based on thier physical appearance. It's only ok to do shit like that here on this board and site because it's expected behavior most of the time.
But outside of this place, a lot of people don't share that ideology anymore.

I'm bitter because I'm tired of being treated like shit because of my race. Even here there are anons trying to make the argument that it's not some how racial to only be attracted to certain races or dislike certain races, but you know, only for dating purposes.

The people arguing that you are giving directly to 'black people' rather than donating to larger organizations are farcical. Have you ever given money to a homeless person? You're thinking you're doing great until you see them get crack down the street. It's the same principle - I'm sure some people will use the money responsibly but by and large with no accountability and with donation to individuals with no purpose, it's going nowhere. You're literally giving lunch or beer money which is the opposite of lasting change we want. Want to see change? Research your organizations and look into causes you want to support.

There's a fuckton of scamming out there now with BLM, so be careful. But the answer is quite definitely not giving to randos for 'reparations' and who have no purpose in how they will use the money.

They made and maintained their wealth by unscruptulous means. People got fed up with this and then the rest is history. What your ideas and concepts are is fucking dangerous and will lead to genocide, just like what is happening the the white South Africans right now.

Also what about the amount of white labour and asian labour that was forced or stolen from people to build America? Black people weren't the only ones that got fucked over. What amount of money or what demands do you want so that you never mention the issue again? Israel bluntly stated he we want $x Billion dollars Germany and we'll never mention the Holocaust or hold you accountable ever again.

Blacks don't want to give out a $ figure because they know that once they do and it's paid for, that leverage they have over people who suffer from white guilt dissappears.

What about the generational wealth from black people who also owned slaves?

This is just such a terrible arguement and it does nothing but divide people and turn the debate into heresay.

It's pretty obvious you are ignorant about how society in Europe isn't a monolith. You see rich countries, like Germany and France, and say that they exploit POC just because. But it's not a matter of skin colour, but poverty as a whole. Alongside these people are also Europeans from the former soviet block, who work physical jobs for hour on the fields or in the factories for minimal wage, just because it pays better then in their own countries. They are also white. And they are also said to be "taking out jobs" and that they should "go back to their countries". It's not a matter of racism, just how economy works. It's shitty and not how it should be, but to blame it on just on skin colour is just as bad.

No, really, Europe very quickly moved away from slavery proper after the end of the roman era, it only returned when the trading and colonial nations got a chance to exploit the already existing slave trade networks in Arabia and west-Africa. Pretty much all of central Europe was out of that loop, all of Scandinavia, the Baltic nations as well. The southern and Balkan areas were actually enslaved under the ottomans on a very regular basis (hell, that's where the term "slave" even comse from, it derivated from "slav/slavic").
the main perpetrators were the portugese and spanish as they not only did it in the largest quantities, but also for the longest and with the most permissive legal framework. The UK did not actualy trade in slaves that much, the american slaves were imported after the independence, and at that point the UK was actively trying to halt slave trade to bury the spanish hold on commerce once and for all. The french had quite the go in the Caribbeans but not for such a long time as they very quickly went in to abolish that trade as well. The dutch messed around quite a lot though in completely different areas. The germans, italians and expecially the belgians had a short go but were pretty brutal about it.
Still, the main ideas and images we currently have of slavery come from the situation in the US, fueled by spanish trade, and from the Belgian Congo.
So yeah, if you're czech, danish, slovenian or latvian, you and your people have very little history with slavery. If you're ukrainian, greek or bulgarian, your people have quite the history of actually being enslaved.

>> No.10421467

This is my first reply in this chain and I actually am very pro-BLM, but this is a very smug and America-centric reply. Especially in Eastern Europe, there are several European countries that never directly participated in the Atlantic slave trade or had colonies. That's not to say that white people in Europe don't benefit from systemic racism today (sure, maybe there aren't many black people in, say, Belarus, but I'm pretty sure the few black people who do live there aren't having a fantastic time), but it's very frustrating watching Americans treat Europe as one place with one history while simultaneously expecting them to know every intricacy of the American socio-political climate.

no one's arguing with you because they know you're right and don't want to admit it

I didn't respond to you the first time but since you keep pushing for the (You) - here it is.

My roommate was watching a show the other day called Dating Around.
In one episode a bisexual woman goes out with various men and women and one of the men is poly. However, he has a weird boundary. He only wants to date multiple women who are bisexual, but he doesn't want them to date other men.

THAT is a great example of sexism in relation to attraction.

So yes. It can be sexist to only date one sex.

But again. This is WAY besides the point. I don't consider me being a gay woman to be sexist because I have dated men in the past. I didn't swear them off out of hatred. I swore them off because I had a lot of bad experiences.

That's different from being racist or sexist.
The racist and sexist parts come from the ideology that you as an individual would decide that you wouldn't date black people just because you don't like black people.

This is very different from, I like black people and just haven't dated one because I haven't come across one I found attractive.

The racist part would be the mindset that you don't find black people attractive because you think/assume that they all have the same genetic traits. Which isn't true.

>That's not to say that white people in Europe don't benefit from systemic racism today
Racism in Europe, at least in countries where there aren't many black people, is on a completely different level. Not saying it's necessarily worse, just different. Worst cases are people who are uneducated and just treat POC like caricatures, but these people are usually asses to everyone else too. Some people just feel uneasy when someone that drastically unlike them is near, so they stare as a natural reaction, realise that they were rude and look away. I've seen so many people take that as a sign of racism, while it's something not everyone can control, not when you see a black person once a year or so. Of course racists exist too, but their opinion on POC comes from the media, they can't really form their own opinion because they lack experience with people themselves.

>> No.10421487

You see how your blanket statment of "if you don't date outside your race you're sexist" has a lot of "but if..?" That's exactly what people are getting annoyed about. You don't know the lives of other people and experiences so to say " if you only date your same race you're racist" how do you think someone who only dates black people because they had bad experiences with white people feel? Or me, who is black and I purposely don't date other black people because I have a warped view and see them all as family members? Or someone who just isn't attracted to dark skin? Light skin? Is this racist as well? Attraction is something you can't control and you started to sound like the same people who say "you're a transphobe if you don't date transbians who still have thier dicks." Careful with using absolute statements especially nowadays because saying that in the wrong places irl could get you in trouble.

The only black people I knew growing up were family members and I only had crushes on other races as far back as elementary school. When I see a black person, I see myself in a way. I see a cousin and feel weird about dating someone who looks like me, that's basically it. No hate at all and yet I've been called racist by other black people for thinking like this.
>Do you seriously think there aren't fucking racists on this site trying to defend their racism? As a black person, you should be more aware of this.

Now that just sounds like the doctors and families in the past that sent their kids to camps to brainwash them into not being gay. Trying to change thier "weak minds."

Look it goes both ways. Just because someone isn't attracted to another race or only dates within their own race does not make them racist. Racism comes from hate. Simply not being attracted to a type of people doesn't always come from hate. You said so yourself that you haven't dated a black person because you didn't find one that was attractive to you. Same shit. I wouldn't call you racist for that at all but you seem to be calling others that. I'm tired of people trying to change the definition of racism.

Yeah, I wouldn't say that's racist.. it's just odd and definitely just a thing because of how you were raised and your environment. I'd be curious to know what a therapist has to say about that however.

>Of course there is but the people replying to you don't give that impression
They gave the impression that they need to defend their right to only date certain races or only date within their race. That's pretty close minded. And it's a type of discrimination based on race.

Also that one anon who mentioned races sharing genetic traits. This is an incorrect blanket statement and racist as all hell.

>Now that just sounds like the doctors and families in the past that sent their kids to camps to brainwash them into not being gay. Trying to change thier "weak minds."
I grew up as a Jehovah Witness and they believe in sending people to straight conversion camps and shit like that just like other annoying christians who have out dated ideologies.
I believe people buy into religion because they're gullible. I think it sucks when queer kids get put through that shit. But have you ever looked through gay media?
It's filled with the ideology that if you're not gullible, the straight camp can't actually turn you straight and you should just be your gay self.

So yeah. I think people who based their attraction solely on appearance and genetic traits are shallow as fuck and weak minded as hell.

It's not hindering my life in anyway so I don't mind. Most black men I've met don't share the same interests as me anyway and I'm not seeking so it all works out.
>They gave the impression that they need to defend their right to only date certain races or only date within their race. That's pretty close minded. And it's a type of discrimination based on race.
They gave legitimate reasons as well and it's not your place to call them racists unless they're actively saying they hate other races. Like one anon said, you can still like and enjoy the company of/be friends with other races and still not be attracted to them and that's fine.
>Also that one anon who mentioned races sharing genetic traits. This is an incorrect blanket statement and racist as all hell.
It's...not incorrect. There are outliers yes but people from the same areas and of the same race generally have the same genetic traits. This is why you have a "black" section of hair care products at stores because other stuff will dry out our hair and we specifically need heavier stuff that would cause a white person's hair to be greasy.
>So yeah. I think people who based their attraction solely on appearance and genetic traits are shallow as fuck and weak minded as hell.
