I remember CosetteAlice actually being pretty nice. Super lame that EA had to shame her in front of, at the time, the whole community.
But the "I'M THE POOREST PERSON IN THE WORLD" rant is the most classic. Pretty sure it was the one that started the disintegration of the fanbase.>>44731
Every once in a blue moon, I'll listen to her stuff again because she was a pretty HUGE part of my growing up. But I get bored almost immediately. We still have Amanda Palmer still, right?

From Troll Like a Girl.
I stopped paying attention to this stuff for a long time. Guess she's still being a scammy cunt.
No anon, shhh. I don't want to dislike Amanda too>>44746
Its so obvious she stole the story from McGee. She didnt even try to make it a tad bit different.
Context for this is that she started preorders for an audio book of her 'autobiography'. Maybe a year ago now it started, and it still hasnt appeared. She makes vague twitter posts talking about recording but it was supposed to have been out by the end of fall, and now its 2015.
People have emailed her store about wanting a refund but everyone so far as been refused and ignored. Its far too late for paypal claims too so they are just fucked.
She's really like Doe Deere 2.0
Hey since her sponsorship with Aromaleigh fell through, she should team up with Lime Crime. It'd be a snowflake relationship of epic proportions.
Make sure to never google her then.>>44811

She "quit" cause she had better options lined up from the company she is working for or owns.
Haven't read her book because I refuse to pay her,and haven't found a legit torrent of it.
I've been waiting for the day she would be posted on here.
Same, especially when shipping to the UK would have been upwards of $50.

Ooh. Does anyone remember that one girl who paid something like $10k for EA's rat tail? I wonder if she's still a fan.

I was wrong, the tail was only
$2,550, the rat mask was $10k.
What the fuck, people are so dumb. >Thank God I'm Pretty Handwritten Lyrics. 940.00 USD
. I can kinda understand most of the other stuff because it's like original and unique kind of things where there's (probably) only one of them. But written lyrics that she could replicate in 5 minutes a million times over? So stupid.

Thank you, downloading it now. Want to see for myself if its as cringey as some people say.
I also wonder about the fans that win the bids of her stuff, like are you still crazy in love with her. Cause I haven't seen any of the items for resale.
I'm 21 pages through and have been for about 3 weeks now. The PDF has been sitting on my laptop since it was put on TPB. So far it's just, plot-holey and sprinkled with some typos. It's just a bit silly and I have zero motivation to read it.https://twitter.com/4OClockOphelia
This is the girl with the tail, and it looks like her life is nothing but EA and the Crumpets. She's got VV's feather fans too, and various other stuff. >>44915
Right? I think the mask only got so much because it was the first and only item for sale (for a while) and people didn't realise she'd be auctioning the rest of it all.
File: 1422644649931.jpg (38.64 KB, 576x432, Emilie-Autumn-emilie-autumn-23…)
Yeah I'll see how far I can make it.
Jfc a plague rat. Like every picture is about VV or EA.
Side note shes also a year late on her BROADWAY MUSICAL!!!!!1!!11!!!!!!!
Ooooh God. I was actually at the show where she first announced the ~moosical~ (2012, and it was bland as fuck) and I just stood there thinking how great it was that she was bragging about yet another thing that won't happen.
That dress she's wearing in your pic is so pretty, I wish she would go back to that stuff.>;_;
I feel like I'm replying too much ITT lol.
I used to follow her tumblr and (IIRC) someone asked where she got the money for it like, if she just had it lying around or if she took out a loan or something and she said it was a gift from her bf who just happened to have the money lying around? I'm assuming he must be rich cause he bought the flights and shit to come to the UK and stalk EA and the Crumpets.
I seriously love this style so much, but she doesn't even play violin anymore, so I don't think it'll ever happen.
Other than aromaleigh, she also had sponsorhips from both a shoe and jewelry company that fell through, as well as manic panic. such a trainwreck
I found her because of my love for tea and rats, and I kind of got fond of her because my dad died in a fire and also we seem to have lot of similar feelings regarding pregnancy and stuff? and finding out she lied about the fire thing was such a slap in the face. Like…you don't do that. That's so fucked up.
>>44938>died in a fire
Her dad died from cancer, and the rest of her family is still very much alive. It's what really sickens me. When I found that out, and the other stuff I started liking her less and less.
I didn't know about the jewellery, I knew she was in a shoe ad, but also didn't know she was sponsored by a shoe company.

Do you mean twitter? I've never known her to have a tumblr account. And are you talking about Mark? (her platonic fuckubuddy)>>44932
The reason those are nicer during her pre- enchant/enchant days is cause her mother made them.>>44938
Yeah the whole my familys dead,and dad dies from a fire was shuch a shitty thing to do. Seeing as she knows she has fans that can relate to that.
But don't forget guys its her real life and Emilie Autumn is not a character.
File: 1422647251591.jpg (21.34 KB, 500x489, 6333.jpg)
Also I forgot to add that her family is fairly wealthy. Her mother is a well known figure skating designer. I think her mother backs some of her stuff. I could be wrong.
Her mom uploaded a family photo on pinterest of EA and wrote a small comment about missing her. (I have to find the screencap) But a few days later she took it down.

No! The girl who bought all the merch/tail/shit's tumblr.>>44945
Pic kinda related?
She's not underground/alternative enough to be considered cool (at least not anymore), but not mainstream enough to be famous.
It's pretty much the worst state for an entertainer/artist to be in.
Yeah, I know, but Emilie has some kind of sewing ability herself, and it's not like she couldn't buy a cheaper dress and DIY. Even the Opheliac era's clothes were a bit nicer than the FLAG era. I dunno, it's maybe a bit nitpicky but man, they just look so tacky.
Here's the archive of Emilie's mum's website for anyone curious, btw.http://web.archive.org/web/200102041142/http://enchant.costume.tripod.com/id21.htm
Doesn't Asha have a sister who's a bodybuilder, too?

Sorry read it wrong. Thought you meant EA.>>44949
Yeah she can sew,and shes gotten better over the years. But its no where near on what her mother made and that German Crumpet.
vecona's stuff is GORGEOUS
if theres one thing I can say I like about EA, it's that by proxy she's introduced me to a lot of cool chicks who are really good at their crafts. Like, vex's art, and NGL, I love Contessa. (Keep in mind though, all these people no longer associate with EA. I WONDER WHY)
Yeah, I just meant it's not exactly an excuse to have shittily done stage costumes. Her mother's costumes were beautiful, though.
Because we all know she's 'too poor' to afford a costume designer. If Vecona doesn't count.
I think it's quite beautiful how she burned her bridges with so many people.
I can't find a link for the Velvet Acid Christ drama, but iirc they did a remix of Dead is the New Alive for her Liar/Dead is the New Alive EP, she said she hated it but put it on the EP anyway and didn't give them any of the cut for it.
Oh wow, that one is news for me.
I'm so happy you guys, EA drama is my favorite and I'm glad now more people know wtf I'd be talking about
I think they've been acquainted for a while, they both worked on Saw 3.>>44958
Ah yeah, and Attrition she joined them and recorded vocals for a song and then quit?

I feel she would be some what bland without the crumpets, but I would really love to see some choreography between them for songs.But then again not much point when you only have two left.
Emilie chimping out over her bear
Although in fairness, it does seem like it was 80% stage persona
I know, because it is not weird angry stage persona anymore, she is legit angry.>>44990
Lol yeah, if there was a show with all the crumpets I would love to see. But she only has two left. Most of them circus girls. I also kinda want to snog Naughty Veronica. But you know, not worth my money.
On a funny note, i love this tumblr: http://celebsthatcopyemilieautumn.tumblr.com/page/2
I really like Moth because for a moment I though a bit of Enchant was sneaking back. ;( I wish she would have stuck around more so her character could have been developed more.
It's kinda fucked up…I hate EA, but I love her. I talk so much shit online, but I'll stil buy her shit. Someone compared it to being like a battered wife and tbh it's not entirely wrong. I don't know why I keep getting pulled back in. I know that sounds legit cray tho

The best tweet
Nope, she's still
recording it. There are some excerpts on her Vine account.
Got more stuff to add. The boyfriend that didn't visit her in the mental institution and got her preggers was Brendon Small from Metalocolypse. She has a history of fucking her coworkers for fame.. Another example being Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins.
The person who threw away her cutting scraps of paper she would blot the blood onto was that dark skinned chick she had in heaps of her old blogs (forget her name but she also posted on her forum).
Her old cello chick, the Asian girl.. Jun Lee or some shit got fired because Emilie didn't pay her at all, even for the first gig she did on TV where she played Misery Loves Company. She didn't pay the other crumpets either, one was named Mistress of Darkness or something. It's been years since I have thought about all this so the names are hazy as fuck.
Love u anon.
Forreal, I've never been so involved in a thread before.
Joo Hee? She was so lovely.
Ahh, my first chance at seeing her was 2012 FLAG. It was just.. meh. Like I watched concerts on youtube and was so excited, the only part I really remember was Maggot's stage dive, cause I touched her butt, and VV's dance. After that I had a bit of a "high" where I was into her more but it died down and I realised it really was disappointing after being into her for 4 years or so then seeing that
, when her Opheliac era seemed a lot more idk, human. Everything now looks so cheap and rushed these days, but I guess that's what happens when you're poor and don't get paid ~~~~~~~
I wasn't active on the forums, I think I only had an account to lurk things where you had to be a member..>>45177
She also collaborated with Corgan on 'DIA'.
Sounds like the typical EA fan, wouldnt say lolcow just stupid and naive. When the forum was a thing there was a lot of people trying to be like Emilie, saying they were depressed and bipolar because she was, and believing the 'history' that Emilie spews about victorian England. >>45015
The only time I ever thought of spending money for her is to see moth live, but that was too short lived.
Is that what happened? I thought she was just fed up of having them there or something.>>45179
'Born Again' was a good song though, 'Dry' too.>>45185
I agree. Just the same shit over and over again.
LOVE her shows. They're cheap and look fucking awesome most of the time. I've seen her live during her peak of fame in Germany and was completely speechless. I would never ever spend money on her elsewhere though, she's too unreliable…
I like how the general consensus of fans in this thread is "I like her, but I hate her", I feel exactly the same way>>44900
thank you so much for the upload, anon!
(from Lauryn Lawler thread)
just gonna say that victor/socklessfuck is one whiney cunt that deserves their own fucking thread. i followed him and his ex for a while and jesus christ that girl got fuckin lucky getting out of that. His EA blog was kinda good though but their personality is ass
I also thought she just decided to take them down on her own. I want to hear this story!
Also, I remember her saying something along the lines of "people who upload songs to YouTube are worse than the ones who download them for free." So I wouldn't doubt it.

Bruh she fucked Brendon Small? I always wonder how she got on Metalocolypse.
shes such a painful tryhard
i liked her a bit during her enchant days and a few songs off of opheliac but holy shitstain batman is she terrible
just watched like 55 seconds of FLAG and i feel genuinely pained for her
like, you know at the end of her life, on her death bed, she'll just be regretting all of her career choices and realizing what a shameful embarrassment she is
id just like to point out the fact that she is 35, and still pulling this shit
also can we please talk about her transatlantic accent that she puts on? it's so fucking cringeworthy
honestly, if i hadnt known she came from an upper middle class family, with her taste in clothing/interests/idea of what it is to be cultured, i'd figure her to be white trash
like, wood paneling in her mom's double-wide and dollar store, dusty, stale english breakfast tea bags, claiming to be a tea connoisseur
Agreed 100% with everything.
I wonder how much lower she can sink. I really want to see what she ends up like in 5 years' time.
File: 1422845618991.jpg (114.34 KB, 555x800, emilie_autumn_13.jpg)
I've always wondered why she just doesn't hire people to read certain parts like for a character and stuff. But then I remember she would have to pay them, and we all know they don't deserve to take the spotlight from her or her money.
That fringe tho
Did she try to cut the wig herself or what?
she keeps touring doing the exact same thing.
her stage costumes become eventually more and more tattered, her crumpets leave her, and her die-hard fans die off. eventually it's just emilie in an empty venue scrambling around shrieking verses in her affected accent, scratching out cat yowls on her violin, wearing nothing but a bunch of rags and a bedazzled corset.
I went to her concert in 2013 in Sydney.
While at the time I was excited and seriously enjoyed it, (especially the crowd, some very nice people even if a lot of them, including myself were ita,) the show was very lackluster.
Firstly, it took a long ass time, like, the gig started I think almost an hour late to what the show was supposed to begin.
Other than that, it was kind of just playing the entire album with EA singing, with the routines and choreography. I was really hoping for like, new skits and shit because all the shit I saw on YouTube made it look like an interactive fun night during the Ophelia years.
A friend of mine noticed how very…pre planned the Rat's Game was, too. I wouldn't doubt they contact someone so they don't lez out with someone with herpes or something.
There was a little bit of the Opheliac charm right at the end, but it didn't really last long, it was like getting a dessert of chocolate cake, but someone licked off the icing.
To be fair, that sounds like a lot of the concerts I've been to. It all depends on the performer, the venue, the crowd, how well the roadies setup the soundsystem, etc.
Concerts always start late. It's why you only see kids queueing up while everyone else is in the pub and waits until the queue is gone before walking in.
Tours are always scripted. If you see the same band multiple times on the same tour you will often even hear them saying the same things to the crowd. The only unscripted concerts are the small venue warmups bands do before a tour (or more rarely, the 1-2 small venue cooldown concerts they do at the end). If you ever see someone officially "on tour" it's gonna be scripted. Even stand up comedians only have enough material for like 1.5 shows so if you see them more than twice you realise how even "improvised" segments aren't as improvised as they first seem.
Pretty much every terrible concert starts to get good at the end. I don't know if it's because I get drunk or if the performers just become more confident. A lot of times performers don't really get in their stride until after they've played some of their top hits, their most recent single, or anything else they've practised a lot.
I dunno, I've just been to a lot of concerts and kind of expect 50% to be duffs as there's so many variables. Some people get super hyped up expecting great things only to be disappointed.
My experience was pretty much the exact same.
I also do think the rat game is pre-determined, the girl who paid out the ass to buy EA's tail got to play the game and VV even mentioned it to her on twitter beforehand iirc.>>46353
I think the only show I've been to that wasn't planned/scripted/whatever was Amanda Palmer's. She got like 10 other performers to play and sometimes didn't know what was happening herself, I think the setlist generally remains the same, (Theater is Evil was what she was on tour for) but even then she still took a request and threw in some older stuff too, along with a song performed that she wrote ten minutes before the show and never planned on singing again.
Setlists are the same as with stand up routines. They have enough material for like 1.5 shows so if you see two consecutive shows in the same city you will get a mix but more than that or if you follow them to other cities you see how prepared everything is.
So a band can pretend that they're taking requests but really all they're doing is playing a song they've already played twice that week for other cities. It's a similar gimmick to encores where bands want you to feel like you cheered them enough to come back out but they were always planning to come back out because they haven't played their closer yet.
I saw The Dresden Dolls supporting NIN once and it was terrible. The sound system is always setup for the headliner so having support acts that aren't the same genre is always a stupid idea.
There's been a couple shows I've seen that were definitely unscripted. Joey Jordison playing drums for Metallica after Lars got stuck in Germany was definitely heavily improvised. Joey obviously knew the structure of Metallica's songs but was otherwise doing whatever he wanted so you ended up with a weird Metallica/Slipknot hybrid.
I also saw APC at The Astoria before their Thirteenth Step tour. They ran through the album flawlessly but then James Iha started doing Oasis covers, Twiggy did a metal medley, while Maynard was getting the big neon G-A-Y sign turned on (the venue was a gay club at the weekends) and starting an argument with the crowd about whether Bush or Blair was on top. You could tell it was improvised and they were messing around because they kept fucking up and just moving on to the next song without finishing the previous one.

I would love to see how EA would react.
You have great taste in music, Anon. >>46773
Would EA even know? Unless it was published and sent to her, she might not even know anything if she has no contact with the family. It would be interesting though. What sort of things would be asked?
I feel like see stalks stuff when it comes to her family.
Im not sure what people should ask maybe her side of the story.
I just stumbled into this thread - hope it's okay to bump it. Really enjoyed the discussion I've read so far.
Small update from her mom, posted in December on Facebook and dug up by a poster on WVC a little over a week ago:> When you and your family are the ones being lied about…..horribly!!! it does matter! Just so you know………..endless bullshit for too many years!

Now, I obviously don't know the whole story but Jan's behavior on social media is just odd to me. Don't get me wrong, she has every right to be pissed about Emilie's lies but I kinda have a feeling Jan isn't telling the whole truth about what happened between them either, especially since it's been years between Emilie telling the fire death lie and her coming out to speak up. She flies off the handle every once in a while, followed by radio silence for weeks, rinse and repeat.
I really can't make sense of it. Any thoughts?
(Also thanks to the anon uploading her book, I've been curious about it forever.)
Idk, her mom is just probably fed up and frustrated. I'm sure over time she's gotten lots of EA's fan messaging her and it's just really gotten under her skin. Maybe someone had PM'ed her and that's what sparked the comment.
I mean, there's really no way to say either way, but I can see the frustration on the moms part.

I really think that has to be it.
I mean could you imagine being harassed for years by your daughters fan wanting to know xy and z of someones life.
I also feel like Jan would do a small interview to get her side out there, but the one asking the questions would have to be professional and unbiased (which means most of the rat queens fans wouldn't be qualified).
Anon who uploaded the book here, I read through it and saw a few of the pages of the cutting diary is missing, I don't know why, but it's how I downloaded it.
The book is so bad though, like it has some fairly good points but it really disappointed me with how cliche the ending was.

How bout its been two years and her audio book still isn't done.
This confession hit the nail on the head when it comes to this fandom.
Pretty much, though people seem to try to keep her family out of the drama.
I just think it's funny that she goes around calling out of celebrities for plagiarizing her life story and work (Lady Gaga wheelchair, Suckerpunch) when it's pretty obvious she stole the background story for American McGee's Alice for herself. Wonder if the bitch even played the game.
Dafaq is that guy wearing? Reminds me of my friends husband who literally thinks hes neo from the matrix shudders
Sage for OT
Something about her fandom encouraged reverse Coco Chanelism. Fuck taking one thing off, put six extra things on before leaving the house.>>256332
Autumn was mostly just a violinist at the beginning, but I think the Dresden Dolls/Palmer were doing this sort of thing slightly before she ever did. It took Palmer years before she tried to monetize her fans though, EA was on that train pretty early.>Would you like books/blended teas/fan club memberships PayPal me bb.

God shes been around for a while now, tbh I enjoyed the vibes in Opheliac, the harpsichord and the fiddle was sublime, but the industrial/technobabble shit she dives into, I cannot stomach.
Also, her style is tacky, if she could refine it a little, in regards to ott colour, what looks like post-gangrape rips in her outfits, and lace, instead of aiming for full blown Victorian Era whore, she would be 100x better aesthetically.
Subtlety is key ladies.
actually, I'll admit also she was somewhat splendid in her cameo in The Devils Carnival as the Painted Doll.
I dont think she has a spoken line in the entire picture, and she bites some guys tongue out. The entire movie is on youtube, its pretty great if anyone's bored enough.
she bites his ear off not his tongue
and there's a sequel now that's much much better. Emilie has loads of speaking parts and she's actually not bad in it. I'd recommend the tdc alleluia if you liked the first one.
Oh, get over it.
Who cares if the thread is old; it's here for discussing EA and if people want to discuss her then let them.
Hide the thread if it bothers you that much.
Ah, okay, I didn't know it made you do that for files over a gig. I've never had any troubles with Mega, but if you install the MegaSync thing you might wanna make sure it doesn't also sneakily add in those crap programs/toolbars or whatnot.
And no problem, friend!
No one has still been able to figure it out.
And when anyone would ask EA about it she would just skip over those ask.
Like shit, you can say that you forgot what it was.

I'll be damned.
I would have thought she was too busy bombing acting auditions these days to bother with this old shit that fans preordered years ago.
Anyone remembers Emilie Autumn? She's barely relevant, for years there was nothing to laugh about as she just sits at home and does nothing (this time expensive upper class New York apartment, bitch is delusional to try to wriggle herself into Broadway) and scams fans selling overpriced necklaces made from 1$ ebay materials and China-printed asylum bullshit of all trade, but recently there's been a HUGE meltdown in the fandom. Basically she lost almost entire leftover fans she even had, cause they finally got fed up with her shit and want her to be canceled. The only audience she has now are her most loyal bootlickers on her private Striped Stocking Society group (about 600 people). Everything because she turned out to be racist and she fucked up BIG TIME. I recommend you all to read this link, it includes all timeline of what happened, plus receipts and videos. She's out of her mind lol. This is some quality drama:https://shefightslikeagirl.tumblr.com/instagramincident/
Meanwhile, people are bringing up her old dramas. This blog listed all problematic
shit about EA, with scans from book and quotes:https://millionsofstrangeshadows.tumblr.com/post/622578812117450752/a-masterpost-of-almost-everything-problematic
And this instagram account has stories on old drama/fandom in general: https://www.instagram.com/asylum_oracle/
Yeah and I still love her though her latest offerings are shit and I am really not feeling the musical. I don't think it will ever come out, why didn't she settle for a movie?
The BLM drama was something else, I haven't expected this fandom (or rather what's left of it anymore) to have another ePiC drama because it's so dead. Personally I don't care about the drama though Emilie obviously should have acted more respectfully… I probably need to reread the whole story though. What personally annoys me more is her airy fairy bullshit, it's like she and Veronica morphed into the same new age-y boring auntie. She used to have something to say about society and now it's just tarot cards, magic and other bs 24/7…
I hate the shitty merch that she pushes recently. The only thing that I would love to own is the asylum dress, but it's damn overpriced so nope.
I used to comment a lot on WVC and I miss talking with other plague rats about EA. Good times. I miss the Opheliac era so much. TBH even the FLAG era was better than whatever she's doing now.
Idk, nobody was really surprised by that drama, but it tripped a switch and people finally stopped making idiotic excuses for her shit. I recommend to watch SunlessNether and VioletVixanne's videos on YT, they were directly tangled in that drama. Anyway it's crazy how EA is a perfect example of all that fake allyship & white fragility complex. There's been rumours about EA being racist for years, but it's been hushed. Tbh i don't think she ever meant her music to be directed to black audience at all. Maybe she wasn't racist consciously and definitely in the beginning, but she's ignorant and has some internalized racism issues crawling out of her at times i think.
I agree she should've went for the movie, that was her only chance and she wasted it. I thought she had a falling out with Bousmann but i see he came to comment on her Instagram just to cover her ass, cause Marc called him just so Emilie has her daily dose of ego-boosting comments (she can't have it from bootlickers anymore, now that she closed comments or deletes anything else). This is pathetic, she came to New York but does nothing, before lockdown she was like going to Broadway shows everyday as if she thought one day they will just notice her and propose to stage her musical, lol. I don't get how she and her boyfriend (which i think must be secretely some sort of snowflake if he puts up with Emilie Autumn for so long) can afford that NY lifestyle, maybe they've got some huge heritage or whatever.
I agree 100% with that magic witch bullshit, but i think she's outgrown Veronica (oh the irony). Veronica is shady af too but she's got some actual life and business and her magic posts aren't as wild compared to EA now. Not as obsessed/haunted, idk.
She totally lives in some sort of fantasy, not in a real world. She hangs onto that horrible *lightpositivitytarotmagic** bullshit, if you know what i mean. Some sort of new agey shit where she preaches love&light (but in fact she silences everyone and emanates negativity), she talks like a haunted woman if you take a look at her Instagram. How long she's been pushing that tarot deck? I feel like for the last 2 years she's been talking only about this tarot deck and other ugly merch. This damned tarot is more important than her music, lol. Recently she's all into those ugly crystal bracelets, plants. She constantly commits cultural appropriation, with that sage cleansing. Also, she shows of some Asian religion regalia/talks about chanting. The most cringey thing is how she calls everything "she", "look it's my mother moon", "look at New York, she's cleansing" n shit like that. I guess she uses it as a way of coping, but it's cringey and very unhealthy in my opinion.
She goes through odd phases, constantly changing and erasing traces, old work and old albums, constantly rewriting that one book, shedding skin just to imitate next thing and becoming a twin of her current boyfriends, etc. Now she's left with basically no fanbase and yet she still thinks anyone's willing to stage her mediocre musical?
That asylum inmate dress would be 100 times better if it was shorter, thigh-high or above knee, cause it's like down to ankles almost and it's very unflattering. The rest of the merch is horrible, i don't know what the hell happened to her, she has no taste. I get she likes christian/mormon grandma clothes now, but you'd expect her merch to be victorian themed but noo. And it's still the same woman that used to sell all those Willow Tech House, Opheliac designs, bloomers, leeches, violindustriaL? I'll never forget how she made a horrible knee-lenght big ugly skirt with a horrible pink-yellow collage of "victorian valentine postcards". Of course it wasn't anything aesthetically pleasing or even remotely victorian, just some kitchy cherub patterns - that's the extent of her "victorian" now.
I guess I like still her oldest stuff and it's a shame how we all miss old days and mostly fan interactions, cause we're rather fed up with Emilie herself… It's just there's nothing to discuss anymore, this drama is the most activity i've seen in the fandom in 6 years. WVC is silent again. There's no place to discuss, i've seen people coming to Reddit or Pretty Ugly Little Liars forum. Anyway PULL thread was interesting, some string player broke down EA's violin playing style and it turned out she constantly makes beginner level mistakes and is in fact very mediocre… also the girl provided info on the budget behind Emilie's violins.
Gand & Bernardel - from 10 000 to 17 000 $
Zeta Strados - 2000 $
Pajeot violin bows go as high as 30 000$.
Emilie Autumn got her first violin at the age of 4. Her parents bought a violin for (at least!) 10 000 dollars just cause a 4 year old said she wants so. God, it says a lot about her priviledged background.
Kek what parents they died in a fire many moons ago.
Idk I just hope her mom isnt funding her life style some how. Also she seems sickly thin, like I know shes always been skinny but she looks pro ana thin in her pictures.

I see that you have missed the EA copied Ophelia Rising party kek
Would you care to elaborate onnthe similarities between EA and Rasputina? I never listened to the band, but now I'm intrigued.

Not familiar with 'Ophelia Rising' but I just looked them up, and honestly they appear to also probably be a Rasputina rip off. According to the bio I just read it was started in 94, and Rasputina has been around since 91 at least. Rasputina was founded by a cellist named Melora Creager, it's basically a cello goth rock band and has always had "Victorian Era" style, from the clothing to the subject matter of the music. I strongly suggest you look them up, they are 100000x better than any of these cheap imitations. This is a picture of Melora. She did it first and she did it better.
Ophelia Rising is likely more of a Marilyn Manson ripoff, Lexa Vonn was once obsessed with Manson. But then she read some book of the same title and got inspired, something like that.
But Emilie Autumn must have seen at least one show in 2000-2003. They had you know girls in corsets and stripeys, umbrellas, flowers, dolls onstage. Check this live video, it shows it PERFECTLY:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2Lqajk29rY
As for Rasputina, well Rasputina was first with "industrial strings" mix, like distorted rock cellos + industrial crashes etc. Especially "How We Quit The Forest" and "Cabin Fever" albums.
Check these songs: Trenchmouth, Signs Of Zodiac, Things I'm Gonna Do, MayFly, State Fair remix. Plus combination of corsets + stripe stockings, but tbh Rasputina had much better costumes in 1997. It's funny how EA never mentions Rasputina, if she liked rock violins so much, then she would admit she likes them but hell no.
I don't think her mother funds her, someone recently messaged her about Enchant Puzzle and she replied so shortly that i think there's no friendship there. If someone has a heritage it's Marc probably. EA's father died in 2004 and she always whined about being homeless for next 3 years, so maybe she didn't get any money.
Someone counted all the money she spends and makes on those 100 variants "limited necklaces" and it's an easy way to make 19000 a month. It's hard to believe but bootlickers still buy any shit (she makes corona masks now xD she started making them as soon as lockdown started), so with considerably high prices she makes some money.
Then again, i don't think her book/music sells anymore. She boasted how her "sells are athrough the roof" because of the drama "but of course" she's going to donate it!!! She closed comments cause people were constantly asking for receipts. Hmm, ashamed to show how much you made? Maybe it wasn't so much after all?

To the person talking about her being anorexic thin: i don't think she's got ED but she's very controlling of her weight. She commented on some Enchant photo and she wrote "oh back when i still had baby fat". Lol wtf. If this is fat… But she had some fuller body in 1997-1999 On a Day era, i'll post the photo if i find it

Terrence Zdunich had some fallout with Bousmann and EA didn't post anything on Bousmann so we all assumed he got fed up with her and this bridge is burnt, but if you look up her Instagram, she does those idiotic tarot readings "tag your friend" and Marc Senter tagged Darren. This was obviously so desperate, she needed some positive comments but her source is running dry lol. Anyway last time i checked Darren Lynn Bousmann posted some half assed heart under one of her posts so idk. Last time they worked was in 2016 when he employed her for 2 days or so for his escape room or something. But EA never supports anyone back, she only wants to be supported so there's been no talk until that recent Instagram comment.
This pic sums it up perfectly lol

For the anon who liked custom Asylum dress: someone remade it from the scratch for cosplay or something and just wow, it looks so much better with all the lace and controlled holes and stains. Emilie's dress looks like a potato sack compared to this.
It's so fucking sad how their relationship never resulted in anything actually cool when it comes to EA content. The FLAG video was absolutely shit! I'm still salty we never got the Liar video with bloody bathtubs. Same when ut comes to the promised Opheliac era tour DVD. Too bad that the recording is forever rotting somewhere in a Trisol archive. I wish someone would leak it (if it still exists). Sad that by now not many people would care…>I'll never forget how she made a horrible knee-lenght big ugly skirt with a horrible pink-yellow collage of "victorian valentine postcards".
I hate what happened with her fashion style. Opheliac era aesthetics were amazing! Can't believe she is now wearing ugly hippie aunty clothes and pushing shitty clothes with the same asylum stockings print or monstrosities like the skirt that you mentioned. She used to wear such gorgeous and original clothes! Like the black, sort of Tim Burton style dress from the one photoshoot…>>789160
Can you give me a source on the custom gown? I like it a lot, not sure if more than the EA ones, but at least as much. Though the stains look a bit to real for me, I can't imagine walking anywhere in a shift that looks so filthy. I wonder if it would be difficult to sew your own shift or commission one? Do we know what is the font that Emilie uses for the Asylum markings and numbers?
Is Rasputina the only band allowed to play victorian inspired violin music (or whatever it is)? I can understand that Emilie is similar in some way to them, but it's hard for me to buy that she is a rip off of them. The Ophelia Rising comparison holds more water imho. >>789448
Highly doubt that. How Emilie is a rip off of Lene? Are two women across years not allowed to dress quirky for performing? This is the only similarity that I see though I only took a look at google image search results and haven't listened to her music, so I may be missing something.
No, of course not. I just commented on how odd it is she never mentioned it. But whatever, i agree she didn't rip off Rasputina, but she absolutely ripped Ophelia Rising show aesthetics. If you seen the OR show i posted, they played in Key Club in LA and EA would play the very same club later, it's this one Opheliac show filmed proffesionally by Kris Van De Sande on Youtube, you can compare those bands in the same venue. Anyway i searched for more Ophelia Rising. You can go to Lexa Vonn facebook photos and scroll a little, she's got plently of old Ophelia photos. Or this site: https://plasticsfactory.wixsite.com/lexavonn/music
This is so completely ripped, all that "originality" praised for years and it turns out Emilie Autumn is just playing on someone else's stolen underground aesthetic. They've got those half-naked dancers blowing soap bubbles etc., Crumpets used to do it too. Hell, Ophelia Rising was even first at throwing muffins to the crowd!
It's just a shame there's no one to talk about this shit anymore. There's like only Shefightslikeagirl blog (they're on hiatus tho) around and Bonnytymepyrate from fan websites these days. I don't know if you're guys familiar with Bonnytymepyrate, it's a great blog with archives and lots of old photos and themed posts on each Emilie costume and history. The only thing that's kinda meh to me is that she appears to be lowkey all on Emilie's side despite everything, she's not openly defending her but still you get those vibes a bit. No matter what happens she's still protective of her imo.For example how she was protective over EA's violin skills. It's been proven her skills are mediocre at best, violins and cellists spoke & and it turned out she makes beginner awful mistakes and has flat intonation.
I think it's the end for EA, the bitch exposed herself + the shit that came out with Ophelia Rising ripoff… unless she for real has some deal with Broadway people and plans something. Still no matter what happens, old fanbase 100% won't be there to support her
Well because Tim Burton dress was made by Vecona <3 But even her casual style was better, those plaid skirts-fishnets-demonia boots-tanks or bloomers, even that casual style was rock and cute (2004-2007).
As for the gown, the person who made it is perfectlittleparcel on Instagram. More photos:https://www.instagram.com/p/CDEVA_-gNeC/https://www.instagram.com/p/CDHNYRVgq_6/https://www.instagram.com/p/CDG6em6AlBu/
Go and ask her, i think she'll tell you details and font. Idk about homemade gown, i think you'd have to find some plain gown and add lace, you can even sew it with a simple thread and needle. Not sure about stains, how to achieve the good but not sticky, dirty effect, maybe acrylic paint/t-shirt marker. For letters maybe permanent marker too. This person told he/she traced them out with a heat erasable pen then painted them on. I'd go on insta and ask her. Maybe you can even commision her, i'm sure you'll pay less than for Emilie's ugly robe, lol
Well there was a Moshcam & some other FLAG era stream and i remember both were like "pay to watch" on Apple later but now they're both on Youtube. The promised FLAG dvd was actually FLAG music video behind the scenes documentary. She has 1 hour montage of behind the scenes ready somewhere and she planned to release it on a DVD with FLAG music video. She originally planned to SELL the fucking videoclip on DVD and not to put it on yt, can you believe.
I wouldn't mind having that flag behind the scenes dvd tho. Rabid fans would buy it and then eventually someone would rip it and post on torrents or whatever. What's the fucking point of making a 1h documentary if you're not gonna release it…
Tbh i wish i could get more of her VHS Enchant era videos. She cut those vhs vids into segments but i'm sure the longer video versions exist somewhere.
Anyway do you remember her naked lesbian cameo in Die Warzau video? She was in another video Porn Star Champion by Skum of the earth that was lost for years and literally nobody in the fandom seen it ever. Some fan found the video on youtube a year or so and just… her "sexy metal moves" lolhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFJls3fyWtU
i like her outfit though.(imageboard, embed)
I live for all the vintage EA milk, anons.
Is anyone from you guys currently in the Striped Stockings Society closed group (or used to be)? I've been forever curious about it, but never joined as taking the photo in the rat claws pose is a pain in the ass. Plus, I am always paranoid about coworkers being able to somehow see what I post in Facebook groups (even if they are closed). I wanted to make a fake FB account just for that purpose but I somehow cannot bring myself to take the damn photo, even though I own the ebook, paperback and now evern harcover version of TAFWVG (thanks to the BLM drama, I was finally able to purchase it for next to nothing compared to the regular price on Ebay). Is EA even posting something special in the group? I somehow doubt that but I have no idea. I wish I hadn't missed all the chats with her, especially the ones in the early (?) Opheliac era (I didn't know about EA back then tho. Sad)>>789620>Ophelia Rising
I did a small research into Ophelia Rising a few months ago. I wish I could listen to the actual music (though I doubt it's good tbh) but the record is not available on Spotify for me and I cannot download it anywhere. The purchase link on the wix website also doesn't work for me. How do you know about the muffins being thrown into the crowd? Did you read about it or can it be seen in some video? It's crazy how similar EA's shows are to Ophelia Rising's! I find it very hard to believe that it's just a coincidence, though a part of me wants to lmfao.>Bonnytymepyrate
I love the blog and have major respect for the admin (Isn't it the old DisneyAdmin from WVC? Maybe I'm wrong in that assumption). It's nice to have a fandom archive of EA and she is doing a great job. I would subscribe to her patreon (if she had it), especially if it would increase the amount of posts.I don't mind her being slightly protective of EA, it's not like she doesn't see EA's fuck ups, she just doesn't concentrate on them because what's the point when you are running basically the last fandom blog? It's more of a place to cherish the fandom memories than dunk on EA. Most people that still give a fuck about her know how ridiculous she can act.>>789622
Thank you for the instagram link, I will check it out! Would love to comission the gown once I lose weight lmfao. I'm mad that most likely there will be no EA shows to go dressed up to as a Wayward Victorian Girl. If she will never be able to tour due to her health issues, I wish she gave us an update so we know it's over for sure. But I can see her touring again if she's ever desperate for money lmfao. Her fanbase is no longer what it used to be though. I remember someone noting that back in the Opheliac and even FLAG era you could meet an EA fan on every random internet forum even though she was an underground artist. Now barely anyone cares and for good reason. She fucked up her career so bad. >>789625
Wait, so the FLAG dvd never was released? How did it leak? I have downloaded it years ago as I could not afford most of EA's stuff. I must have missed it never being released.>>789629>Die Warzau
I hated that video, not becuase of the lesbian content but because of how cheap and edgy it was. Everything about the video is a reason why people in my country say that Germans have no aesthetic taste (lol). The song Dry that EA did with Die Warzau was lovely though, too bad it also never got released officialy (I think?)>Scum of the Earth
Why is the music some cover (?) version of We Will Rock You? Interesting since EA made that Tea Will Rock You cover later on lmfao. She looks cute, I miss that EA. Obviously she is much older and cannot rock twin tails anymore, but damn, I wish her style leaned more toward goth than a hippie aunt.>>789650>>789658
Thank you for coming with all the vintage EA drama. I have never heard about some of this stuff even though I've been in the fandom for a pretty long time. I've missed most of the Opheliac era though… sigh.>Vecona
Can't believe EA didn't want to pay Vecona, like how the hell is posterity supposed to help her out? It's not like Plague Rats had tons of money to comission her. Of course refusing to pay someone is always a scummy move, but has EA truly believed that Vecona would get anything out of the deal? Horrifying. She should have cherished and paid Vecona well because a huge part of EA's appeal was in those gorgeous clothes.>The poster drama
Never heard about it, the fandom must have collectively forgotten about it. Why was EA even promising stuff she did not have?>EA's mother
Forever wondering what the fuck happened there, especially since EA's mother made quite a few snarky comments on youtube and her instagram. I know it's none of my business, but would love to hear both sides of the story with no censorship. >Crafters Coast to Coast
OMG I've been forever wondering why she was looking so bad in that video! I thought that she was not yet found her Opheliac fashion style. This explains so much. Always was wondering why there is a part in the video where Emilie is awkwardly playing her violin. The feature was cool but Emilie looked so unflattering. I feel crazy because the EA segments of the show uploaded to youtube are missing it, but I remember there being a part where EA was shredding on her violin with a crazy face and since the sound was quite unpleasant, it looked like she could not play at all lol.>Courtney Love
Also would love to find out more about this relationship. I remember EA defending her then shitting on her for the whole faking pee drug test thing. And then EA sort of got inspired by Dirty Blonde for the look of TAFWVG. I don't doubt that CLove was terrible (even though I love her art), wish I could hear the deets lmfao.>Ea's boyfriends
How do you know all this stuff like EA stringing Vanaria along and Corgan wanting her to cut off the relationship? I somehow don't doubt that Corgan was a toxic
douche. He was a big celebrity (even if a bit of a has been) and EA was the young, virtually unknown girl that he was fucking. Also wasn't Lady Parasyte the former friend that threw away EA's self harm kit or am I wrong?
File: 1596868040413.jpeg (28.61 KB, 480x640, images (1) (5).jpeg)
This is all theory that ran around the EA die hard fan circles. EA ALWAYS vagueposted about stuff in her personal life. This theory came from hyper analysing her posts and stalking social media. Billy Corgan also had this weird as hell blog where he posted shit from his past and present that alluded to things like an ex trying to coming suicide and blamed him for causing her mental breakdown.
EA had bright orange hair just before Crafters Coast to Coast. They asked her to tone down her look. She blogged that when she met with them in her house before the filming that they didn't like that she was in a tartan miniskirt, fishnets and looked too "sexy". Not sure if they would of asked her to dye her hair but she dyed it that weird dark burgundy red specifically to go on the show.
Lady Parasite was the friend who took her leech jar after her first psych ward admission.
Here is a pic of Emily and her siblings
