Official Dakota thread to stop it intermingling with Kirsten's.

No. 27573

Dude, why does she look really fricken weird?

No. 27575

She's photoshopped to hell and back because of expectations. No, I'm not from PULL and think she's "average" or "not a MOOOODEL." She's a pretty girl, me thinks. But she's not exactly a living doll. So they always photoshop the shit out of her. She never looks the same, but she sorta looks manly here…purposeful because of the gun? Dunno, but I'm skerred.

No. 27583

it looks like they added a ton more blush with photoshop, it just seems like its sitting on top of her face and not actually a part of it

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.

she isn't that fat… it is just that without the PS she has that fat girl face. Her whole body looks pudgy but that is because she has zero muscle so everything looks kinda…. flabby? The thing is she does not need to work out or do anything since all her companies photoshop her. If you notice in the start of her career they were having a lot of TV interviews with her. They quickly realized it was a bad idea to put Dakota on TV or any video since people made obvious comparisons. I forgot which Japanese forum wrote about her, but they compared her to Magibon, called her fat and all this stuff. Dakota can't do anything live and if she appears anywhere they ban photos unless they have their own photographer for the event.

No. 27623

Also to keep up with the post on Kiki's thread. I don't think Dakota is 88 pounds. I'm 5'1 and 95 pounds… you can already kinda see my ribs if I remove my shirt and I have thin legs. Sure everyone is different and hey, muscle weighs more than fat blah blah blah. Just sayin. If you wanna get more complicated you can also thrown in bone structure. Keep in mind she is still your standard human

No. 27628

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?

No. 27647

are you implying kiki hasnt had a breakdown? shes absolutely batshit now, clawing desperately at anything she thinks can get her attention, rambling incoherently about new age buddhist vegan bullshit, trying to convince people she can speak twenty different asian languages in the hopes of finding a country that loves her so she can ride the same sweet gravy train dakota's on

No. 27664

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

No. 27667

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?

No. 27674

Agreed, she's matured a LOT, I'm pretty proud of her in a way.

No. 27675

Agreed, her nose is the only thing majorly wrong with her face. Her forehead she can hide with bangs, as she does, but her potato nose needs a permanent solution.

No. 27680

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.

No. 27681

What are the asian beauty standards, or rather Japan's standards?

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.

No. 27686

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.

No. 27687

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

No. 27689

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.

More on the level of Leah Dizon I'd think, but she's a halfie.

No. 27690

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. 27693

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.

No. 27698

This is pretty cute, actually.
Yeah, she's no living doll, but she fits in well with the beauty ideals Japan has.
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.

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.

No. 27702

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"

No. 27703

As someone with an eating disorder, this really bothers me. I don't want to be stick thin, and unfortunately, I can't seem to help myself. I struggle to keep weight on, even when eating like a normal person. I think she definitely has some form of eating disorder or something, seeing as how obsessed she is with looking perfect (with minimal physical effort) and lying about her size.
5'9" (175 cm) 112 lbs (50 kg) here.

No. 27704

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.

No one cares about your stats, they're not relevant to the discussion at all, stop attention seeking.

No. 27728

Yeah, I feel like she was never really """"lulzy"""" but she's always kinda been a cunt, just hides it better seeing as she has a reputation to protect, which is the smart thing to do. It kinda seems like now that she's made something of herself everyone likes her and pretends they always have. Sure, she's 100x better than Keekz and she's done very well for herself, but she's a bit of a dick.

No. 27731

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.

No. 27733

Exactly, keeping your bitchiness private is not maturing and being a better person, especially since she never apologized in the first place. It's just being smarter about your bitchiness.

No. 27735

I wonder this too.

I mean shes cute with out all the shoop, but how is she getting all these gigs.

No. 27736

She has a name for herself that she's probably riding off of, and combined with the fact that most of her stuff is both fully dressed and emphasizing kawaii-ness (so tons of shooping is fine) I can see how she keeps getting work. The magazines that publish cuter stuff tend to use tons of photoshop anyway, as someone pointed out.

No. 27739

I agree with all of you, that hypocrisy on PULL drove me insane. Basically because she stopped being a huge cunt directly, they all root for her and we should forget the past. Pretty sure Dakota hasn't changed that much and still won't allow any pic or video of her. It wasn't long ago since she sent copyright violations to her own employer's youtube and that french tv show got pulled out because she didn't like it. That's not someone you should root for, wtf are they on ?

No. 27744

She is still a huge cunt. You can tell with the way she speaks with Kiki. And when she went on a chatroom with KIki she was still making fun of people for their looks as a "joke". She felt safe because those people were not from Japan. Also the fact that she puts the obviously fake weight and measurements on her own blog like "Tee hee I'm tiny and perfect without doing anything" still makes her a bitch. She knows young girls obsess about their weight. She also shows no sign she appreciates anything, not even her fans. She still has that "Bitch I'm better than you" vibe. Seriously, have you ever seen her generally grateful to her fans?

No. 27746

Dakota did make a public apology, though, she posted it on her blog ages ago when she was still a hot topic on /cgl/ & that's why a lot of the hate died off.

No. 27747


That public apology was pure shit and she admitted to nothing. In fact it was more along the lines of giving excuses to her shit behavior and lying. She didn't even admit to her fake image.

No. 27752

The copyright claims are usually done by her mom and Kiki, not herself and the cases you mentioned were like 2 years ago already. People don't root for her because she doesn't throw around with insults anymore but because of the family situation she was in.

No. 27753

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.
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 about herself.

No. 27775

OMG that shoop is awful. What kind of company would let an image like that even go out.

Trust me, there are japanese companies that are shooping worse, some even make all their product pics look like purikura.

No. 27794

lol yeah, Kiki made up at least 60% of all those racist/homophobic videos, and she let all the dirt fall on Dakota. She never apologized for them, and unlike Dakota, has no excuses for them (no lesbian harassing story, no "I was 14", nothing.)

No. 27798

>Also the fact that she puts the obviously fake weight and measurements on her own blog like "Tee hee I'm tiny and perfect without doing anything" still makes her a bitch.

you sound fat

No. 27813

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.

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.
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.

No. 27851

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.

No. 27853

No. 27862

I don't think Dakota is lesbian either. Not to be like 28 in waist chan, but I think she's like me. I'm not lesbian either, but a late bloomer and more than awkward with guys. I was usually more comfortable with girls so I came off as a dyke to my peers. I don't think I'm particularly girly so using girl vernacular in Japanese is kind of weird to me. Maybe it was because of Kiki she came to be like this. If Kiki was the main role model of a 'girl' to Dakota, it's possible she didn't want to be like that and developed differently.

No. 27863

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.

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.

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

It's ridiculous how so many pull users go on about how Dakota and many other people who shoop make girls hate themselves. But if these people actually looked like their shoops, should they not be allowed to take pictures because some random strangers with low self esteems will hate themselves more after seeing this them? Anyway, the shooping takes more of a toll on the person who is shooped than the person who just stumbles upon the image. So many pull users are very tumblry and go on about not triggering people, but I'm sure they're "triggering" Kota talking about how unattractive, plain, etc she is, when it's quite obvious she has a low self esteem too.

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.

No. 27903

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.)

No. 27906

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.

No. 27909

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.

That's what I thought you meant! Thanks.

Good point, maybe they do it because there can only be one gaijin aidoru who will take over asia~ I've heard a lot of gaijin in asia will ignore each other or sometimes even get pissed off seeing another gaijin because it's their ~special snowflake only gaijin in asia trip~ so it's plausible imo.

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 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.

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.

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.

No. 28124

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.

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?

No. 30503

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. 30513

Totally agree with this, plus I still find it odd that when Kiki did go to Japan they didn't upload pictures together or even really post anything about them doing stuff together.

No. 30514

No problem!
>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.

No. 30520

Unpopular opinion here, but i disagree with all the above. I think the reason they refuse to be in videos together or show the pictures they took in japan is because with kota's popularity they would spread eveywhere, and kiki's shit past/reputation will taint Dakota's image. I remember in 2012 when Dakota went viral and media outlets started digging, they found kiki's rolling stone article and started talking about how "the living doll's sister was a has-been emo who was raped and blahblah bullied blahlah vandelized her house blahblah now it's Dakota's turn to shine". And it definitely looks like Dakota wants a fresh start and an image away from all of that. It doesn't mean that they hate each other or are not talking, or kiki's jealous and wants to sabotage her or is fuming at her success. Remember that people have public lives and they have personal lives. Maybe in their personal life they talk on skype everyday, ship each other goods, kota moved the painting to the living room etc.

No. 30551

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.

No. 30572

I'm sure it has something to do with not assosiating kiki to her image though. During the kickstarter where they both wanted 20k, Dakota didn't mention it at all on her blog, twitter, or youtube, despite her being at the peak of her popularity then (when her videos were getting millions of views). Kiki (and cathy, lol remember that twitter where she begged celebrities?) advertized her ass off though.

No. 30577

Oh no, I agree. I don't think I phrased that very well. I agree that Dakota is (sensibly) trying to disassociate herself from Kiki for whatever reason, I disagree that Kiki is ok with it.

No. 30583

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.

No. 30592

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.

No. 30754

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.

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.

Dakota created a fair amount of hype (and infamy) before she got such an attractive modeling contract so I doubt any other pale, young white girls could get success such as Dakota. I think Dakota actually worked to market herself and an image to Japan. Truth or lies, photoshop, racist, blah blah blah. Dakota made herself cute, ran with a trend while it was uber popular and created hype around her pictures. I think Koots semi worked for her fame. Maybe not to the degree most do, but it didn't fall into her lap.

No. 39227


Are you already in Japan? Unless you’re internet popular or something, then It’s unlikely that an agency is going to have you come from overseas when they could just walk down the street and hire one of the many mediocre-looking gaijin already living/staying in Japan.

No. 39234

this. many cute thin girls go to japan, unless you're already cute and supermodel material, like lindsey wixson for example, i doubt it's that easy. another example, peachymilkytea is blonde, blue eyed, cute, has been to japan, and tries market herself to japanese people, but she isn't a model there. i definitely think she or any other cute girls in japan would've gotten a contract there if it was so easy.

No. 39236

i want to add, if you really want to be a model, i think it would be so much easier to become one somewhere like china. every girl these days wants to become a kawaii model in japan so there's going to be a lot of competition for it.

ive never seen this video before, could someone link me??

No. 39271


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

No. 39272

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)

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.

She has a cutesy face, it wouldn't work well with a sexy body. Not to mention, she would need more waist definition to be properly curvy, which she can't really fake unclothed. She markets herself more as a porcelain/BJD-type doll, not a barbie doll, anyway.

Getting septoplasty does not drastically change the appearance of one's nose. The surgery may have changed the tip of her nose for breathing, but her bridge looks pretty much the same as it did when she was 10/11 on MySpace. Except when it's badly contoured or shooooped of course. If Scott and Cathy were giving out nose jobs, I think Keekz would have jumped on board for one too.

No. 40475


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".

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).

That might work if Dakota was 3-7 in those pictures, but she was 13 (?) and her nose is already a 'adult size', so any changes those nose contraptions are very minimal (and they have to be constantly used)

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.

No. 40900

Guys the tip of her nose has changed. We all agree on that. She could have gotten septoplasty to fix her deviated septum. That would explain her tip changing, and it's covered by insurance so the Ostrenga family didn't have to pay much to get it done. Sometimes your surgeon has to modify your nose for adequate airflow, usually just the tip unless your nose is completely fucked.I think this theory best explains her nose morphing because if she had rhinoplasty done, her bridge would have been modified as well.

No. 40913

So in other words, she had surgery that changed the shape of her nose… Kind of like a nose job. Not the anon you're arguing with but this convo is going in circles. Besides, who cares if she did? She's cuter now, and everybody kniws she's fake as hell anyway so what does it matter? So her trashy redneck family found a way to fix her nose and have their insurance pay for it, good for them. They're still just poor, trashy rednecks and everbody knows that as well.

No. 41139

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.

I don't think it's a matter of not noticing, I think it's a matter of not giving a shit or thinking they're fair tools to use. Everyone else is doing the same thing, why would you not? You'd be setting yourself back for not adhering to the same standards as everyone else.

No. 41151


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〜

No. 41156

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.

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.

No. 41404

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

No. 41413


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.

You're going to think I'm full of shit but sometimes beauty is more than just the right features and voluminous hair.

It's not hard to make some round or squareish face look better with having the bangs the same lenght as the rest of your hair next to your cheeks, that's why it is so popular in Japan since many girls have very round faces and this way they look more slim.

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.

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.

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.

They have absolutely zero input on how a model or a client chooses to edit stills from a shoot.

you know, some outfits don't look good on some bodytypes. i don't think that outfit would suit her real body because it is kinda square-ish and doesn't have a defined waist. it would look rather silly. the pink dress she had on in her first japanese interview looked very nice on her, for example.

>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.

No. 46417

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.

No. 46421

japan has an audience for caucasian features but it's high-time some of these girls stop viewing east asian as some promised land because they're white and only because of that

at the end of the day, the market will always be bigger for people who are actually of these ethnicities, since these countries are made of up like 98% of the same ethnic group

like any other place, if you look beautiful you're gonna be marketable.

kota shooped herself cute and dolly, cute and dolly sells there. not just because she's white

No. 46424

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.

No. 46428

'Exotic' people are always going to be popular, but only if they're a minority and the market doesn't become saturated with them.

No. 46429

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

No. 46430

honestly i feel like there'd be the same response if more black/afro people did the dolly thing or learned japanese. the only exposure to it comes from entertainment, and there are a slew of subcultures and styles emulating black american culture there.

the only difference is due to western/european colonization of most of the world centuries, those traits are seemed more desirable

No. 46432

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

No. 46434

I don't think so. Like the rest of the world, Japan seems to be happy to take African American (or whatever the politically correct term is) culture, but isn't too fond of the people's appearance.

No. 46435

I think thats true for a lot of the world, especially where they don't normally come into contact with black people

No. 46437


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

No. 46439

I know, that's what I said.

that's the key, not in contact with black people. japan for example is WAYYY more familiar with white people especially since the war and the original trade there

No. 46441

A fairer skin tone is generally more desired across most cultures, but that probably has more to do with the whole fairer = not having to work outside = rich thing, I guess?

No. 46443

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

No. 46444


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.

dita von tesse has a niche audience though

and of course with everything everywhere it comes to personal preference

and like, the soft grunge thing for example. or pastel goth trend has brought paleness back in fashion.

but again, niche audience

No. 46456


not necessarily.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

I agree, it looks like Kiki got more harsher/bigger versions of Kota's features. I really don't get how Kiki was the favorite.

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.

I don't really mind Kota's forehead, though Kiki's looks worse because of her harsh features. It just makes her look like an old hag. I think if Kiki got bangs she'd look sightly less bland.

I don't get why people think she's so famous either, even Kiki thinks Kota is some big supermodel there. Her ameblo posts only gets 100-200 likes, sometimes over 200 if she's lucky.

I'm not sure about twitter but I don't think it'll be that much different.

No. 50666

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 think that's why Kota isn't really shown in popteen that much. Kota may have been the most viewed on their youtube channel, but it's only because of her non-Japanese fans. She doesn't get that much attention from Japanese people who are mostly going to be buying and reading the magazine.

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 she alienates herself too much to have a thriving career. She doesn't seem to get along with more than a couple models, unliek the rest who at least try to pal around with the others. Dakota's always seen on her phone looking bored with proceedings or standing/sitting on the sidelines.

She also isn't as engaging with fans as other models might be. Granted, that's just the type of person she really is so it could be appreciated she's not putting on as much of a front as she could be, but the fact remains that those who are more welcoming to their fanbase will have a greater popularity. It's lucky for her that some people in Japan find her attitude funny because otherwise she'd really put people off.

No. 51069

Pretty much this. We've seen her attitude before, that one "FAQ" video comes to mind. The whole time she sighed and sounded bored and irritated and she called herself perverted and disgusting, IIRC. She just has this constantly annoyed and cold sort of demeanor. Maybe she's working it purposefully, but it's not a good idea imo, especially since she's already a foreigner and stands out just by being a whitey. Factor in her attitude and she just seems weird and unapproachable.

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)

No. 51072

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.

No. 51075

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.

No. 51103

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.

No. 51111

People said her living doll career wouldn't last long because doesn't look anything like her shoops irl, not because of being jelly.

this. i actually wish she would relax and just be cute and funny. didn't she say something about singing before, though?

No. 51243

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.

>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.

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.

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.

No. 51462

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.

No. 51469

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.

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.

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.

>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?

No. 51779


Ithink she'll just marry a Japanese dude and become a kawaii housewife so she doesn't have to go back to Florida. Really, I think she'll do anything to stay in Japan (except work on her modeling/public image) because if she goes back to FL, nobody will give a shit that she was ~Dakota Rozu desu~ and has no usable talenta or skills and she'll end up living with her parents and spending all her time online trying to rebuild her popularity like Kiki does now.

No. 51789

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.

No. 51810

>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!"

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.

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.

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.

i just think it's going to be a short bit about her talking shit about angles or whatever. just because it says 整形 it doesn't mean it's about plastic surgery necessarily, but in asia it's the most common thing to do.
i think the main point here is that any japanese girl shopping the hell out of her face would never make it to popteen or any other model agency. but she's white, kind of cute, and shopping her most likely means profit - so they do.

How many times can she keep trying to jump back into relevancy every time her popularity declines by going "it's 100% natural, no plastic surgery!!!"? It might work a few times, but then what?

You can go to school in Japan and do shit there you couldn't have ever done in FL, don't blow it by riding on your makeup techniques because those won't work when you age too much.

why is it that she gets such deep folds? Is it because of the shape of her face/cheek bones?

No. 55212

she is so self-conscious about her eyes as well. She likes to edit them to be further apart than they are. Also, you can see she enlarged them on the right, because the white space of her eyeball is larger.

Is her face really uneven or is it shoop?

No. 55282

Yeah, that's the thing she's edited most. There's some other minor alterations/shoops here and there (chin and jaw is a little smaller/slimmer, eyes are a tad enlarged, nose tip is less pointy and lips are smaller). It actually sounds like a lot but she hasn't gone hardcore shoop mode on most of her face here, just on the laugh lines.

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.

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.

No. 55316

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

No. 55320

I'm so fucking tired of these Japanese bitches (and Dakota) using 5 filters on their photos. Are they really that insecure? They're models, for fuck's sake.

No. 55326

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.

No. 55330

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.

No. 55332

Dakota looked super cute. I think she may just be really shy? I dont know. I'm not sure. I do wish she'd show a bit more life, though.

No. 55359

tbh, her being on her phone seems… ok? i know that being a model/tv personality, you should be sociable and friendly but honestly she is in another country and it gets rickin tiring thinking in a second language every damn second. especially if you are a introvert to begin with. forget it. you're doing double duty there - dealing with people AND using all your brain power to communicate in a second language

No. 55363

not as uneven as hers

No. 55364

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.

No. 55367

Why would her being the only foreigner on set mean she has a lot more to worry about? She can speak Japanese well, it's not like she's struggling to understand what people around her are saying or anything. She doesn't seem stressed to me, she just seems bored and uninterested. I think you're just making excuses for her tbh.

No. 55371

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".

No. 55389

>All these girls putting on fake cute voices and mannerisms for the camera

No. 55390

Jfc the way some of you are carrying on about how cheerful the other models were I was expectiong them to be laughing, throwing confetti, having a mini party, anything. Instead they're all just sitting around killing time before a shoot; some their phones. The only difference is Dakota didn't put her damn phone down when they got to her.

No. 55393

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.

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".

No. 55395

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.

No. 55401

Anons have called her shy a few times ITT and other threads. Usually they sound like they're trying to paint her as some cute, innocent and sweet little victim of her environment/family, likE some interney Cinderella and it's so obvious they're the bitches from PULL who slung the most shit when she was coming up and now whiteknight and asskiss her shamelessly.

Seconding Meitu app, that shit is baller, you barely have to try as long as your hair and eyeliner look decent. Line camera is good for brightening up darker pics, too.

No. 55411

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.

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/.

No. 55414

>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.

No. 55427

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.

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.

No. 55428

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.

A sentence like "整形してない?" is essentially just a question in a round-about way (Japanese phrase things like that a lot to be less direct). It's best translated non-literally as, "You haven't had plastic surgery, have you?"

No. 55521

meh, I passed the N2 yet still can't hold a proper conversation. Reading and writing is much easier seeing as you have more time to respond to the information. When speaking you have to come up with a reply much faster to keep the conversation going. I could see her being like me and just suck terribly at speaking yet can manage well online.

No. 55544

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.

I feel like this thread has gotten so bitch eating crackers… she seriously doesn't do anything lolzy anymore except maybe Photoshop herself like literally every model and celebrity ever. not interesting, or cringy, and frankly everyone bitching about the way she was acting in a 15 second video clip just sound like jealous lolis. obviously she can act how she wants and knows what she's doing because she got over there in the first place and is making a living and supporting herself. I mean seriously, look at the shit kiki is STILL doing and kota looks so fucking normal and down to earth in comparison.

..I just white knighted an ostrenga. ugh. what is my life. seriously though, I'm happy for her. when she first went over to Japan I thought no way in hell she would be there more than 3 months and it's been years.

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.

>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.

No. 55629

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.

That's not the only instance where we've ever seen her act generally bored/uninterested though. She acts that way a lot, even sometimes in her own YouTube videos (FAQ video, anyone?). She definitely gives off a certain vibe sometimes and a lot of people have noticed it, even fans(?) in comments on some of the Popteen videos she's featured in.

No. 55639

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.

That being said, I still believe Dakota's in the closet.
My dyke detection goes crazy whenever I see her.

No. 55980

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.

No. 55981

What makes you think she's gay? I've heard this a few times from others, but I don't see it. Is it just because she's never been seen with a boyfriend (to my knowledge, could be wrong)?

Not that anon but most people seem to think that because of when Dakota insulted Kiki on Stickam after she called Sailor Mercury a dyke.

Yeah, that's what I thought. And I think the gay assumptions were based on the idea that her saying that apparently made her seem 'insecure' about herself being gay? I dunno, I just think she was being a young brat that thought it was funny to think homosexuality is gross and stuff like that.

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

No. 56131

It does look like she pulled the shorts up too high, but I get why she does it, she has a not-so-slim midsection, no tits, and narrow hips. JFC she could just do yoga or something 3x a week and fix that but I guess she's just too lazy and doesn't care about looking like a squishy rectangle.

Beauty is subjective, so nobody "needs to accept" anything FYI. Kota is cute in her own niche kind of way, but I wouldn't say personally go so far as to say she's pretty. No jelly, I just don't see it.

She does have a prominent chin, she shoops it much smaller along with her jaw, and her bangs making her face look so much shorter by covering practically half her face doesn't help either.

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.

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?

No. 56197

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.

No. 56198


It's not that ~everyone is just jealous omfg~, it's that Dakota is marketing herself as a 100% Natural Real Barbie Living Doll when the truth is it's literally all fake. It's not about if she is or isn't cute, it's about her not being anything like what she claims to be imagewise and people don't like it because she's being praised as this perfect exotic beauty, and in reality she's a flabby plain looking average white girl covered in layer upon layer of fakery and lies.

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.

Thanks! It says, "The one in the center is Dakota's older sister, she is called Kiki Kannibal. Kiki is also an anti Japanese foreigner who wants fame in Japan, she is on the right in the >94 gif (it's the gif of Kiki and Kota doing their impression of Japanese people). The difference between them is that, Dakota apologized for her awful behavior, while Kiki doesn't acknowledge it. I think Dakota became mean because of Kiki's influence." I wanted to add more about Kiki, like the Danny drama, but I just didn't know how to word it.

No. 56230

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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~!!

Eh, the time when she got signed to Bravo was the one where she got exposed the most but after years of nothing changing at all discussing her got boring because there is hardly any new drama, most of the original members don't post anymore in her forum.

No. 56553

That's it though, they started whiteknighting her just because she stopped producing lolcow milk when she actually got to Japan. That's the only reason they like her, because she's in Japan and living every weeaboo girl's dream (except the ojisan thing maybe?). They act like she's so rformed because she hasn't started any shit in a while, but even that is only because she no longer gives a shit about anyone who isn't Japanese.

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.

No. 56613

She wears the Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown lenses, I believe they're 14.5mm, though pinkyparadise now says they're 14.2mm. They may look more obvious in person since the lenses have a thick black limbal ring.

No. 56700

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.

No. 56730


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"

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.

No. 56823

In 2011 she tried modeling in America, and said on twitter that the agency woman said "omg, you look just like your pictures! and you're so tall", as well as "I see you're the 'my eyes are too big for my head' type".

Then never spoke about her again.

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.

No. 57173

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.

No. 57175

her face looks so much like a pug here, she should stop shooping it so that her features look so squished together. It works on Japanese faces because they don't have massive foreheads, especially ones that get covered by that helmet fringe hairstyle.

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.

No. 57200

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.

No. 57203


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.

No. 57208

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.

No. 57209

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.

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

No. 57217

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..
