I can but handwritten kanji is harder to read when you're not a native.
First line says "I really, really, really love Dako-chan".
I am about to go to bed. If somebody hasn't done it when I wake up I'll engage my brain then and translate it.
I'm drunk and the text is small but the gist:
>I love dakocha>You're the cutest in the world>I was so happy that you did my hair for me
I don't understand the next sentence, something about first time on popteen (or maybe first time they worked together) and something about a memory returning quickly, and thanks.
>lots of fluff about how dakota has been on tv recently, so even though she doesn't watch tv she'll watch just to see dakota>cheering her on>she's happy for her but will lonely if she gets too popular>"I'm always by your side, from Mikku"
I said it before and I'll say it again, I don't believe Dakota's changed. There's no way in hell she's putting up with these sunshine and roses bitches without having a laugh about it with her sister. But hell, maybe I'm just projecting because I find these fakely sweet Japanese girls to be an absolute chore to hang out with.
It says みっくｗ
She writes w a lot, the equivalent of handwriting an lol
All that equipment and she barely uploads photos or videos any more.
Also you'd really think she'd know better than to tie her hair back by now.
>>86230>leaving her camera body standing around with no lens on and the body cap off.
Her hair is so thin, but she looks alright otherwise. I guess her real face is less shocking now that she has more TV appearances.

no, you're right!! plenty of japanese girls annoy the fuck of out of me… all they can think/say/focus on is "zomg kawaiiiiii" or "sugoi" whether its talking about animals, other girls, etc… because in japan its not ladylike to have real opinions.
coming from an american point of view, dakota must be like jfc
eating isnt very kawaii, dako.
her arm omg

Does anybody else find it weird that the Bravo Models site hasn't updated Dakota's portfolio for over a year now?
I mean, she's had tonnes of work more important than what she has on there now, like the GJ lingerie cover, the shitty Vogue spread and the hideous Korean Elle Girl cover, but there they remain.
Yall niggers need to chill on calling her fat.
You guys act like she's quirky size. She has the same basic body as most japanese chicks.>>86384
Maybe they're slow as fuck.
Do other models have their bios up to date?
Lmao I'm not even a model and I do basic exercises everyday to have toned limbs. Dakota probably doesn't work all day erryday, she has plenty of time to do some basic training yet she still has a terrible tummy and chub arms.
Idk you're paid to look good get your ass to the gym instead of awkwardly covering your stomach in bikini shots.
File: 1429641749596.jpg (136.07 KB, 600x900, example.jpg)
i found that really odd too. maybe she's afraid to gain muscle mass that's visible, like outlines of a sixpack, because that's not kawaii. are really fit models like that actually typical in japan? i mean, i've never seen one.
File: 1429641765629.jpg (87.2 KB, 450x675, 4OrxfyK.jpg)
Huh? It's not like that was even remotely the point of the post. And, er, anyone can respond to anything.
Dakota should tone up, let's face it.
Even looking at the thin Japanese models, none of them are toned or muscle definition. They all have a softer aesthetic.
Idk how other people see her as fat… She's a little soft, sure, and she could probably lift weights and do cardio 3x a week. But she's not fat.
Anyway, where did her promise ring go ? Is she still dating someone in Japan?
everyone would be going wild over this photo if she were skinny
I've always had a huge hard on for Dakota, so yes I think this picture is super adorable. That dress looks really cute on her as well (though it should probably be longer.)
Maybe she's depressed and that's why she keeps gaining? Or maybe she just gave up binging and purging? Who knows, really. I bet some cardio might help her though if she feels bad about her body, it helps you feel less stressed as well.
The only thing that makes sense to me is eating disorder recovery tbh. Because she's in such an exposed condition and as a model it is literally her JOB to photograph well. People keep insisting she's close to the "japanese average" but she's not getting paid to be "japanese average." She would get more jobs and features if she took care of her body. I don't know why she wouldn't pursue that–unless she were afraid it would trigger
her into a downward ED spiral. ED recovery can be pretty difficult, especially when you B/P.
I definitely wouldn't mind this body. So toned! wow!>>86424>>86430
It looks bad though. They want creepy soft women who look like children. Toned is good over all. Don't have to get beefed up like the VS model above, but having some tone makes sense, especially once you get to a certain age and you want that muscle memory.
Dakota has always been cute.
I even digged the over ps kawaii alien.
Im glad she finding herself more it seems,and just seems happy.
personally i never liked the look of toned girls.
makes them look masculine.

found this photo on Pull and I was bored so lulz
People don't mean she's "fat" necessarily
but she is definitely model fat
She would look really cute with pink hair.
But then I don't think that would work to much for modeling/tv.
lmao I don't see why it's something to baw about
whine about it on PULL bby
not that anon but i disagree with you
it's called having a preference. it has nothing to do with being brainwashed by the media.
i think girls with abs look masculine and unfeminine
i don't go on PULL, i'm saying that there is no reason to make a thread about her because shes not currently a lolcow.
assuming i go on pull makes you a retard :^)
No one said you do go on pull, you were told to take it to pull because your "wah wah she's not relevant enough for lolcow" makes you seem like you'd be better suited for it.
I like her having a thread mainly because I know it has to be driving Kiki nuts. Even the hater sites tend to fawn over Dakota and you just know Kiki wants to stab every single one of us in the face.
Plus we can critic her pictures without worrying about getting warnings or banned because we hurt someone's fee-fees.
No, you dumb nigger. Of course Dakota is relevant. If Dakota isn't relevant, then Kiki isn't either.
Seriously, shut your pie hole, obviously people want to discuss her on here so she warrants a thread.

Its disappointing how far her shooping has fallen. She looked her best in this era imo
File: 1429654713010.jpg (194.51 KB, 800x1134, Dakota-rose-barbie-doll-05.jpg)
Agreed. It was the perfect shoop look, she looked totally believable in being that pretty and not alien and loli-esque
This is my favorite of her ever, rip Dakota 2011

Yes! I think this period/snakebite Koots was the best Koots, even though they were probably fake. I hate her constant noseless purikura-esque way of shooping now.

I hate that photo so much, it gives me the creeps. It screams uncanny valley RealDoll shit and it doesn't help that she looks like an amputee either. Fucking nope.
>>86459>creepy soft women who look like children
youre talking as if it was a bad thing.
Babyfaced women are cute as fuck.
it's just an opinion tho
for starters, she is using a Canon EOS 1D, that camera retails for over $5000. She doesn't show her lenses, so lets just assume they are standard kit lenses.
She also uses reflectors (those flat silver things) and a special lamp (the tent with the stupidly bright light in it).
Some are super cute. I wish my face was a bit rounded, but age happens to us all I guess, haha.>>86744
That phrase annoys me so much because it's broken grammar and an incomplete sentence.
Agreed. She has a regular jp girl body, which was even mentioned in that forum. Which is why they don't think she's worth swooning over, one thing most Japanese girls swoon after is looong slender legs. >>86580
Jesus, she's not model quality at all - but she's not fat.
that's exactly it. It looked believable.
Once you start getting meitu xiu xiu blurry/bright ass filters involved, you know everything you're looking at is bullshit.

I'm really tired of this. I constantly get called "Pull!" on this board now a days and it wasn't like that when it first started. I've been on /cgl/ since the Golden Age, and then maxfag, then staminarose, and now here. I'm not from Pull, and I've never had a tumblr. Christ. Just because I don't think Dakota is fat doesn't mean I'm some newfag .
Everyone here is just desperate to cannibalize everyone else. It's fucking annoying.
Anyway, does anyone else remember this style of shoop? It was a little before the rest of the pictures posted, I think.. she needs photoshop on her computer again lol.

I love seeing old pictures of Kiki and Dakota.
Did you ever see Angels workouts ? They're not just training a bit here and there, they have a sixpack because they train like hell then stop eating before any show as to not look bloated.
You have to reaaaally push yourself and commit to your training/diet to look a bit close to that, so don't worry about Dakota looking "too toned/muscular" if she ever exercised (Didn't Chokelate mention biking to keep slim ?). Nooo way that would happen if you train normally, heck even my pole/crossfit crazy friends don't always look muscular, just when they work out.

"after it was in the haku thread"
>being this new
holy shit, did you seriously not get the point?
":^)" is a halfchan thing originally, not your precious tumblr.
Tumblr has grabbed a lot of shit from 4chan, though. I've seen people saying rekt and using greentext on tumblr.
:^) was originally from 4chan.
yup. in fact, being on the softer side makes you appeal to more people.
those super stick thin type gyaru models only appeal to some girls who are into fashion or being "hot" and edgy, while the soft kawaii dolly appeals to more people - girls and guys alike.
tldr: your grandma aint gonna like stick thin brownface gyarus, but she probably likes dakota
no need to get all prissy.
Just saying it's a bit masculine and unattractive to me.
If you like it then that's fine.
Different tastes for different people
i think i've grown with dakota to the point where i prefer her current style/shooping better. she looks cute as fuck as an alienbaby.
That wasn't what was being outlined originally tho, just that I can see why people who aren't aware would associate it with tumblr now that cows have flooded threads and picked up on shit.
Anywas back 2 dakooter
yup. or at least thats what a lot of women think.
i dont think the younger generation is as a bad and its slowly changing. but there are definitely still plenty of young women that act like intelligence and having areal opinion on things are unfeminine.
heck its even in some animes. the one slightly more boisterous clumsy girl is singled out.
Yup. Thinking and standing up for yourself is not kawaii. Being a subservient wife is.
Incontinent=being unable to hold your piss or shit. I am going to assume that you meant "incompetent".
It didn't translate too well.
her face really suits that kind of sultry and haughty look. She has a bit of a resting bitch face, but these pictures make it look so good.
I'm legit mad jelly that I'll never look like these pictures. I'm even mad Dakota doesn't look like these pictures.>>86590
This deal just doesn't suit her natural features. at all.

Its obviously just speculation.
We can never know for sure anon. Between her shoops and shitty food choices and nutritional deficiencies.
File: 1429835643630.jpg (141.56 KB, 600x800, dtlcg.jpg)
Also this is probably shooped but even so, given the context you can tell she's obviously got a problem with her weight.

If she ever did have an ED, this was probably the era where she was at her thinnest. Photoshop is at play but I think there was some truth to how thin she was here.

Dat cholalip.>>87745>>87773>thinking she was ever really this thin
well yes that is just speculation.
unless any of us or any of those kawaii models that work with her can testify with first hand experience, we will never really know if she makes herself throw up or whatever.
however, she, like kiki, is often a sickly shade of pale and bruised.

gosh i think strange lip drawings are becoming a trend (gdi korea)
pic related - ugly lip drawings
(source is another potential lolcow - carisse iris )
these are my lips. are they considered a good thing in korea? they are my worst nightmare
fuck this bitch, i can never "fix" them and yet she forced herself to look like this. annoying
In Korea, yes, but it's been popular in Japan and China for a looong time.
Google Komi.Xi, everyone was going for her look back in the day lol.
why does anyone think laxative make you lose actual weight?
the food still passes through your intestines where all the calorie absorption takes place…
Because it speeds up the metabolic rate of your bowels the food passes through your body quicker and is not given the time it would usually take for full absorption, so upon that premise it does actually function as a weightloss aid, albeit an extremely dangerous one because you can very easily die from an electrolyte imbalance induced by literally shitting yourself to death.
You ever consumed a fuck tonne of caffeine before and ended up with green poo? Well, I know I have. It's due to rapid bowel transit. The green is the bile left over from your stomach and is the other reason why you get ring sting when you have diarrhoea. You are literally burning your anus with stomach acid.
Tha moar u kno.
holy shit anon thank u for this information
i never knew
how the hell does she thin out her face like this? I remember when people were trying to kotify her candids, and all of them would look weird as fuck. If you try squishing her face thinner, it'll look just like the Tiara Mily fuckups, because even if you make her head different, her features will still look like they belong on a bigger face. But somehow she manages do to it and make it work.
Like shit, I'd do anything to watch a video of her shooping in action just to see what tricky techniques she uses. I remember when PULL found the metadata(?) on her photos and it showed that she would edit a photo for days or weeks.. wtf
I totally am bringing it to my doctor when I get my septum fixed. Sharp as fuck hell yeah.
About the ED, I can speculate both her and the sister has suffered/do suffer from some kind of disorder OR at least have/used to have unhealthy relationships with food idk (like Kiki always sounds so paranoid when it comes to food)

Am I the only one that lIkes Dakota's current weight? I like the way her thighs look cute imo. >>87606
Her lips look like Kim possible's lips Jesus fucking Christ why would she do that
Damn I always wondered why diarrhea stings so bad and this explains it. Thanks for the info, bowel anon.>>90315
I like it too. She looks very cute when she isn't skinny as a twig, it gives her legs more shape and her face looks healthier. She's petite enough to afford a few extra pounds because it only adds to her cuteness, the soft upper arms look a lot better on her than the skeleton strings she used to have.
I know most people here think she is too soft and "chubby" for modeling, but I rather like her shape also.
She isn't a high fashion model. I don't see what's wrong with her lack of toning– looks cute and soft, but not gross.

Kontra made a good comparison photo to the way she shoops, verses TV.
What exactly should "she know better" about by now?
I used to run the second biggst anti-Kota Tumblr at one point and even I've gotten over this.
Kota is no longer a lolcow. She was a dumb teenager who did dumb things and she's obviously grown up, grown past them and is trying to make something of her life having escaped from what was a clearly abusive background.
Wah, wah she shoops herself. Who gives a fuck? Her and every other fucking idol out there. Miranda Kerr got caught shooping her shit not so long ago, where is the Miranda Kerr thread?
I still believe she's lying about her age but that isn't nearly enough to denote lolcow status.
I am 100% Kota supporter now. Everyone that's still salty over her needs to get the fuck back to PULL where you can adorn yourself in shitty eyeball bow clips and draw on your ridiculous Kota makeup imitation and cry about how ugly she is whilst trying to crowd fund for your loli idol stage début or whatever it is you sad fucks are griping about at the present.
>>90646>grown past them
Why do people keep saying this? Where is the proof?
I agree with you on everything else but I'm pretty sure she's still a rotten cunt and I don't give a fuck if you think I'm some jelly wannabe.
I think separation from Kiki did her good. I stopped following her shenanigans after she moved to Japan and I must remark that I REALLY hated Kotakoti and she was a horrible lying bitch most of the time. But then a couple of years later I see these lolcow threads about her and barely recognized her. She looks really cute here >>90628
and here >>89903
and the natural look suits her so much better than the fake as shit living doll crap. Kiki is still a self-entitled whore so I can only figure that Dakota drew too much influence from her and being apart from her helped her grow up.
thank you, same same here.>>90649
Well you have to admit she's gone through many big life changes since then. When those stickam videos of her were recorded all she had "special" about her was minor second-hand internet popularity and a bunch of catfish using her photos. She was a completely normal girl whom I don't think ever received attention online without Kiki attached.
Since the kotakoti thing started she had been broadcasted on foreign TV shows, went viral on the internet, was posted on official online news sites, all of her video views surpassed Kiki's, she gained psycho fans and psycho haters, 100+ blogs dedicated to her, earned money through youtube and her website, received foreign modeling contracts, accepted one from Japan, traveled abroad for the first time, lived on her own for the first time in a foreign country, got a legit job, traveled to 2 other foreign countries, was the face of a magazine, appeared as a guest on TV shows, self-taught herself a new language, got real friends, and now has enough fame in Japan that PeachyMilkTea and another girl I can't remember were both stopped and asked in Harajuku if they were Dakota Rose.
I mean, come on. Don't you think that would impact her way of thinking? How she perceives the world? She's still friendly to Kiki, and there's nothing weird about that because she's her sister and has defended her and I'm sure they've shared good times together. But there must be a world of a difference between them now.
Burden of proof is on the one who first proposes the accusation.
Show me proof that she's still an immature, racist, hateful cunt.

Calm down and take your head out of kota's ass for a minute. What she should know better by now is how to coordinate her outfits because most of the time the pieces she puts together look a mess.
Congrats on supporting her and do it all you want but this isn't exactly the place for it.
If she were happy with her face she would've stopping photoshooping.>>90751
I'm not from pull nor am I hijacking anything, just because people aren't praising kota to high heavens doesn't mean they are "fucktarded" it just means people have different opinions and if you can't accept it this isn't the place for you and I suggest you make a fanforum dedicated to her and ban anyone you says the smallest negative thing.
It's not about nor praising her, nobody said you had to like her, I don't like her, I just accept her.
It's about people coming into threads and being like "Ohhhh that fucking sneaky bitch cunt Dakota, she's still an evil bitch, she'll never change her ways, lololololol her hair looks like shit, what a fucking fat slag, look at her arms lololol".
When was the last time Dakota actually had any dramu? It's ridiculous.
I don't care about who hates her and for whatever reason, but if you have nothing new to add to the conversation don't shit up the thread with your boring opinions.
>I'm not from pull
Sure you're not sweety.
Are you a different anon because early you said you support her. Anyway all I said was she needs to learn how to coordinate her outfits cause they usually looks a mess.
And obviously you do care who hates her or else you wouldn't be commenting lol.
And you do know you can avoid this thread right?
File: 1430344492138.jpg (79.85 KB, 604x405, NwvQxaHox8k.jpg)
Let me spell this out for a few of you, who are clearly missing the point.
Dakota is still being marketed as "100% NON-CG REAL BAHBEE" in Japan. The frustration that most people have with her is that she continues to profess that she doesn't Photoshop her pictures. Why not just come clean? It's not that big of a deal. No, because Dakota has built her reputation based on a lie and continues to do it. It is insulting to those who are fans. Remember, many people supported her from day one and simply wanted some honesty from her. She blocks anyone that questions her. Really, she set a precedent for lolcows in a way, because she got away with the lie and gave hope for all of the other special snowflakes out there.
That being said, I somewhat enjoy watching her grow and become more comfortable without hiding her face behind her hair/hands. It's cool to see her do that. I just wish she had been honest and genuine with her fans and followers because she probably feels at this point, there's no coming back from it.
Damn, she looks WAY better in TV than in her shoops.
Also those bangs and lighter eye makeup really truly suit her better than the side swiped bangs + dark, excessive eye makeup. And after gaining a little bit of weight she looks way healthier than during her anorexic days. I love how she smiles a lot these days and seems more confident about her face.
When was the last time Dakota actually said "I don't PS my photos"?.
Anybody with half a fucking brain can see that she does, nobody believes she's 100% real and looks like her shoops. All of the Japanese idols edit their photos with photo apps and such. They all fucking do it. Nobody gives a fuck but you apparently.
Holy shit are you this jealous?
WHY DO YOU GIVE A SHIT

She is the one that states it is her real eyes to the magazines, yet people claim she doesn't lie anymore.
I feel like they just went along with it to emphasis her "WOW GAIJIN SO DUH BIK EYE!"
Any idiot can see she's wearing lens.
File: 1430351926996.jpg (64.44 KB, 600x800, ey.jpg)
Seriously, what are you morons going on about? Literally every girl in popteen wears lenses. If Dakota didn't, she'd look like the odd one out. Gaijin eyes my ass.
Shut the fuck up you pedantic twat and get back to PULL.
Literally nobody here but you gives a fuck.
Go hunt down every Popteen model that doesn'y openly shout from the rooftops that they're wearing circle lenses and harangue them. No1 curr.

Most people's eyes just fade at the ends/are a bit blurred.
Not harsh and rigged like this? The fuck… I like Kota, but this is just silly.
If not anime, any fictional girls that are drawn too pretty. Some people tell artists not to draw like that because it's triggering
No it's not. It's faggots from PULL who care. All the shit heads who make the "Berry" thread popular. Low grade cow material, which is what Dakota is becoming.
Here, farmers choose grade A milk to pick apart like Pixy's one drive vids, insane Ashley antics, that one prostitute in Japan who lost her kids, Scamanda, and so forth.
File: 1430364514511.jpg (128.87 KB, 900x900, ZAKR8rz.jpg)
Fuck I am so glad somebody else here gets it.
We only want the cream of the crop here, the A grade lulz, the cherry on the cake.
NOBODY GIVES A FUCK IF SHE WEARS CIRCLE LENSES
First of all, when the fuck did I say that? Secondly I don't engage in that type of behavior. I couldn't care less about how people dress themselves up or alter their appearance, it's why I said that. I tend to ignore comments about peoples images since it'll just cause me a headache and focus on their behavior, because it's what can actually hurt others. If I bothered to go after every asshole who said some bs about someone shooping their waist by a 2 degree angle I'd never have to do anything else.
But whatever, from your logic I doubt you'd comprehend this so I'll just leave it at that.
Honestly, it's insane how much of a thrill people get off of talking about her circle lenses.
When all you have left is to wait for a person to post an instagram pic to be able to dissect afterwards for any shooping, you know that persons laugh worthy material has run dry.
They're obsessed and don't want to let go and move on to actual cows who could be making everyone laugh.
Well for starters she should know how to pose and be less of an awkward, slouchy goof at the very least. It wouldn't kill her to learn how to put together outfits that don't clash so hard too. Plus her Japanese should be better since she has the benefit of immersion learning for 3+ years. And she hasn't put out any hair or makeup tutorials in ages, really all she does anymore is show up in front of some cameras and stand there while people oogle the gaijin and compare her to her old shoops.
She just seems so lazy and half assed in everything she does, I don't get why people still
think she'll "blow up" and become some household name in Japan and overseas… I mean really, she doesn't even do
anything anymore and she never talks about having any long term plans or goals, like she thinks she can ride this real barbie shtick forever (which she obviously can't).
lol sure. stop being sad because your weeb ass can't model in japan, dakota's over. even if she turned into a nun PULL would be running after like drooling hogs.
I rarely visit this thread due to the new trend of "HOW CAN SHE LIE ABOUT CIRCLE LENSES?! HER HAIR IS SO THIN, SHE'S SO FAT"

>she just seems so lazy and half assed in everything she does
Still managed to score half a dozen huge contracts and appearances lately though hasn't she?
Where are you going in life, Anon?
I agree. Why are they putting more emphasis on Dakota's shooping and circle lenses rather than real offenses like scamming and stealing like what Coconutbabydoll, Venusangelic, Emilyy_lav and other snowflakes did?
Oh her fake appearance is a bad influence on little girls right? Well scamming and stealing encourages people to do the same, which will end up on their record and ruin their life.
hah! Are you comparing it to your modeling contract? Newb models usually get paid like shit, live in crowded dorms and have to move home at 20 because they've gotten too old. You think multi-million dollar agencies give models a contract that puts them in a bind? They could ditch any one of their models any time because it's the company that writes contracts out to make themselves rich off of young girl's looks. Don't think Dakota has them in a head lock. For some reason, she fucking sells. Maybe it's a fake image, maybe it's shoop, maybe it's her white girl appeal but she's gotten some kick ass campaigns for being so normal. Something is working for her and her agency is exploiting it, not working their asses off to keep Kooters in Japan.
You guys can talk shit about Dakota all you want, but we're not SJWs and we don't care if she's used the word faggot or beaners. We're not impressed with her, but Japan has tacky ass shit anyways so let koots milk it for all it's worth. Meanwhile, in America, Kaka is still a hilarious cow scamming money outta weebs while her sister is the real deal.
>>91354>newb models usually get paid like shit, live in crowded dorms
Which Dakota did for a long time, your newfag is showing.>They could ditch any one of their models any time because it's the company that writes contracts out to make themselves rich off of young girl's looks. Don't think Dakota has them in a head lock.
You are acting like she is working for Vogue, she is only the average model that keeps getting jobs due to Japan's white fever.
And to add:
With "they always will be abel to find her jobs" I meant that she doesn't need to search them herself, you basicly got the whole post wrong.
Then people should stop saying "I bet they're going to drop her any time now!"
No one said she was the best supermodel in the world and deserves to work for Vogue. What people are saying is that she is liked enough in Japan to stay there and the denial regarding that is hilarious. she may not be insanely famous but she is liked by some and gets some cool modeling gigs. She is probably not going to be dropped any time now if they like her gaijin look. people have been saying for like 3 years or something. It's ridiculous
I'm not the one spamming PULLtard, and apparently I'm not the only one fed up with you spamming your tired shit about Dakota's circle lenses, how fat you think she looks, how thin her hair is or how poor her dress sense is.
Nobody here cares, and if you don't have anything new or interesting to contribute then gtfo.
Her face has been revealed for ages and she does tv now. It's not too late and it still works.
You mean she wasn't REAL LIFE HUMAN BARBIE!??!?! EXPOSE. EXPOSE. EXPOSE. And the world didn't care.
I'm the anon that you replied to.
I'm saying it's like McDonalds deciding to sell shoes instead of burgers. At best they can make another company to sell McShoes.
Regardless, being the "real life barbie" is Kota's schtick. Getting rid of that/rebranding takes a lot more work, first and foremost it requires people to give that much of a shit about Kota that knowing that she does this shit is a big deal.
An example of a big figure trying to shake off a public image is Miley Cyrus - someone who was truly in the spot light. Miley was branded as being wholesome, with enough people who care enough that she wants to be seen differently. There is no motive for Kota to change, being the real life Barbie is still working for her, announcing to the world that she does normal shit that an average Japanese girl would do (wear contacts and use a shitty phone app to edit pictures) absolutely has no meaning.

Damn she's come a long way.
shits going down
kiki is crying alone
Speaking of which, she's been completely silent on all social media accounts for a few weeks now… I wonder what she's scheming this time…
Secret marriage to a Japanese national?
Planning Dakota's murder?
yea its a bit random but oh well.
hot damn ill totally admit ive been a jealous hoe for awhile but this really did it for me. i'm quite proud of her now
Oh my god, she's so fucking cute.
I kind of like how she doesn't go the overly high pitched route… Her Japanese sounds better in a lower voice.
Wow her Japanese is very, very good now.
I mean, it's to be expected having lived there for 3 years now but I'm very impressed.
Kiki can still burn.
i love the defensive ass licker infestation, i bet they are all from PULL. last time i visited, everyone there was praising kota and yelling at the unfortunate ones who dared to say something bad about her. kek. just join a fanclub already, stop spamming the thread with your "kawaii uguu i'm so proud omg bbygrl". if someone dared to say that butter golem's outfit looks nice or something all hell would break loose.>>91961
it is said that on warm summer nights when there is a full moon, you can hear kiki howling and crying in the far distance and if you don't cover your ears with moss, you will get earbola and be transformed into a cat that will have to run from kiki forever and ever
ikr, she has never put on the kawaii loli voice
props to her
Forced or not, she's so much cuter when she is smiling/talking with all this movement.
I remember when she was so robotic with her movements/gestures a few years ago.
It's refreshing. Confidence is good.>>91979
Same. I really like the tone of her voice as is. Was always a tad lower then most girls I know (as far as when she speaks english)
I don't get it when people ask this.. she doesn't look like someone who have had surgery to better themselves. She's pretty average in my books.
Comparing to her old photoshops, her real face is butt ugly. But gotten used to her real face, she's alright. Sometimes cute, sometimes unfortunate.
It's because it's Japan and surgery is extremely common among celebs or ''beauties'', which is why. Of course it happens in the west too but it's usually a lot more visible.
I think you can compare it to the Jennifer Aniston dilemma, lol.
Yea but in this case and most, it's fucking true. They are infesting the place.
And if there's nothing new about her and everyone loves her now and all they want to do is kiss her ass DELETE THE FUCKING THREAD OR MOVE IT TO /b/ this is lolcow not pull.
A lot of white people look like potatoes.
See: Venus, OrangeCitrus, Mortem3r, etc
because she looks different in real life compared to her photoshopped pics.>>92438
no that's immature, dakota should be using her fame to stabilize a fanbase.

less screen time out of everyone though
I know, right?
It's a good thing they figured out she's such a horrible person who shoops her pics and wears circle lenses before they made her the star of their commercial! They must have looked at the truth blogs just after they cast her.
And it's not sad to spend your free time here?
I'm sure you could be doing something far more important than posting on a forum dedicated to laughing at lolcows. We're all immature.

Actually I was thinking that maybe Dakota was the one coming here screaming about how jelly everyone is cause they aren't in glorious nippon.
Especially with those "go back to pull you hater" comments seeing as how I assume most regulars here know that pull users mostly praise kota but since pull was basically made to discuss Kota's drama she'd probably assume everyone there are her haters.
Besides wouldn't Kiki want to keep Dakota's thread here?
I HATE THOSE FUCKING LIPS PLEASE STOP DAKOTA THAT DOES NOT FLATTER YOUR FACE AT ALL
Literally the biggest waste of potential how annoying
No problem, it's easy to make mistakes.
Sometimes I'm just surprised by the hatefulness of some of the posts about her, and we all know there is no one ore jealous of Kota than Kiki.
I was one of those people so it's doubtful.
Also I fucking hate PULLtards.
People were only sayingthat kind of shit because anons were acting like her getting placed for a few seconds in a TV ad means she's now an A list TV personality.>>92561
Everyone saying "shes not that big a deal stop licking her cunt go back 2 PULL" is Kiki
Everyone saying "she landed a huge fat contract with Samsung she's the star of the commercial and the new face of Samsung you're all just jelly losers doing nothing with ur lives go back 2 PULL" is Kota>>92696
I hope this is just an unfortunate cap of a face she made very briefly, it's so unflattering and eugh.
Anon never said that people stated she is a class A celeb but acted like it which they indeed did, not only in this thread but also the Kiki one.

videos from january…. never seen these. she looks pretty thin here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh-MHGPzns8
I think anon meant the commercial would help her gain more people who would wonder who she was and research her, giving her more popularity.
Samsung uses no-names but they also use celebs. I don't know if she got the position due to her status or not but her status may have helped her get noticed a little.

Someone made this on pull
How dumb are they over at Pull?
Do they really think fringes start at the hairline?
Even in the original kooter shopped picture you can clearly see where her actual forehead starts because her hair is so fine you can pinpoint the hairline
File: 1431783937804.png (849.29 KB, 720x1131, jn.png)
this seems to be her hairline
Even if it is a joke picture, the person made it as if that was her hairline per request.
On another note, does she have a Samsung? I heard it changes your features automatically when you use Bueaty Mode for the selfie cam.
keep calm gal I made it just because of the illusion it gives the angle + editing. I know her forehead isn't that big lmao I'm not that dumb>>103092
No I didn't lol it was a joke because her head seems to be massive in that picture. If someone wants to see how is her real forehead, just search photos of her. Don't be lazy and ask someone to show where her forehead starts.

I don't think so, from what I've seen, Japanese girls still wear falsies but they're more natural looking. Although, I do see some girls from time to time who didn't bother with their lashes. I don't really get it since she wants big eyes and imo eyelashes can make your eyes look bigger than any other eye-enlarging technique could. I was thinking maybe her camera didn't pick up her lashes since my webcam does that, but judging by candids, like in this pic, that doesn't seem to be the case.>>103838
I don't get how she's so bad at shooping cleavage, there are billions of pictures of cleavage on the internet she could use as an example for when she shoops. Or she could just wear a push up bra/stuff/wear 2 bras and contour.
oh god i hope she doesnt make a clothing line.
she and kiki lean towards white-trash-harajuku in their style choices
Agreed. Rola had a major setback last year the whole Dad thing and she hardly worked at all, but in 2015 she's bigger than ever. She's hitting the variety circuit hard again and she's in more advertisements than before. I can't walk down the street here without seeing her face.
I think Rola may end up sticking around on TV and endorsements for years the way Becky has done. Dakota has a very long way to go. Her Japanese needs a lot more work too.

Can't do high-quality gifs, sorry.
File: 1432035378191.gif (466.73 KB, 460x307, focal range.gif)
I don't know if anyone has brought up focal range yet. It's basically the difference between you looking smoking hot in selfies and like a toad in tagged pictures.
File: 1432040153028.gif (22.56 KB, 470x350, picture_angle.gif)
Focal length is the distance (In mm usually) the lens needs to be away from the sensor in order for the image to be in focus.
Focal length and angle of view are tied together, the shorter the focal length is, the wider the angle of view. You can see it in the cat gif, in the images where the cats face is closest to the camera, the more of the background we see. but it also distorts the cats face most heavily, because when we take a picture we often need to project the image at a smaller size to all fit on the sensor.
For example a scene you want to photograph was a metre wide, but your sensor is 23.6 mm wide. 1000mm wont divide by 23.6mm evenly, so you can't scale the image down using a whole number ratio. In order for it to all fit, some of it is going to be squished down, but squished unequally, because it doesn't divide as a whole number. Which bits get squished the most is all to do with the lens being convex. This maths is all really simplified and not representative of the actual maths involved, but hopefully illustrates what's going on.

^ that anon has the real technical stuff
This is my basic overall explanation in layman's terms/how I understand it:
There's a difference between cameras with the big ass lenses that can take photos of cityscapes and the cameras that take pictures of tiny bugs on leaves (the ones that make small things big are called Macro lenses). If you used a Macro lens to take a picture of cityscape, it would look kinda shitty, and vice versa.
Same thing with the public event cameras and front cameras on a phone. You're just gonna look different because their uses are slightly different.
a bit OT but you're always going to look different between someone taking a picture of you from afar and you holding the camera where you can manipulate your own angle and face to look as good as you can.
This blows my mind. I just quit lolita and wanted some casual references from Dakota's clothing. I remembered she never was a lolita like Venus and always had that cute but very simple style, so I thought I was relatively safe looking at her as an example for various pieces.
I look through a bunch of her stuff and she's wearing nothing but lolita, especially brands I used to enjoy.
Anon from above, all the stuff you said about macro lenses is incorrect. The actual definition of a macro lens is a lens that projects onto the sensor with a 1:1 magnification ratio, hence "Macro" Which actually refers to things visible with the naked eye, as opposed to micro. meaning that if you take an image with a macro lens, and scale it up or down to life size, the proportions will be perfect. The reason they're usually used to take images of small things is because they usually have a pretty short focal length, so the only things you can fit in the available angle of view are tiny. There are like, 500mm macro lenses which you can use for portraits and shit though.
They're pretty much the only lens you can use for everything, hence their huge pricetag.
dude, even karma wears out, and Dakota's had more than her fair share.
imagine what kind of lolcow you'd be if you'd been publicizing your life on the internet since you were a wee grubby tween.

File: 1432062276925.png (102.04 KB, 1561x372, calmdownomfg.png)
Didn't Dakota actually apologize for her past behavior, but PULLtards went like "THAT WASN'T A REAL APOLOGY!!"
I remember one other PULL member saying "If that's not a real apology, what is?" and people tore her apart viciously.
Jeez PULL, let it go already. She said stupid shit when she was a young teen and said she was sorry. Why do PULL members focus and pick on her more than actual scammers and treat her on the same level (sometimes) as Kiki who made light of someone's death?
Maybe they want to seem more appealing to locals.
Source of her saying she is hafu? I think the Japanese would know what their own people look like and would recognize an actual hafu.
I don't think it was a real apology either. But I don't think she will ever feel the need to apologize though? I doubt kota even gives a shit anyway. It's been year, I wouldn't care either. But if I met a fan or someone who asked I would just say "Ah… well it was a long time ago, I was a bit of a dick back then but I didn't mean any of that and I'm not like that anymore" smile and walk off. Even if Japanese saw the videos, they wouldn't care. Some may but companies wouldn't. Not when they're milking her and I bet half of them would laugh cos yeah, kota.
Her past behaviour is just something people bring up and use against her even though its doing NOTHING.
The present kota is what matters and if she does bad for herself, let's just say it doesn't end up good in the end then thats HER own fault, nothing to do with stickam and bla. But, I think it'll just be pushed under the rug like a lot of things are already.
Same person replying.. (I shoulda included this bla)
I am not kota's biggest fan. I am however, interested in her career. I'm not white but we're both 'gaijin' and I think it is quite interesting how Japan is taking her on. Despite the barbie persona thing. I like how open Japan is being, it's nice. Same with the Miss Universe thing, not the same thing but it's pretty cool how time is changing? If you get my drift, sorry I'm just rambling now.
When I first came across kota I think I was a little envious, I'll admit it! Her pictures were lovely but once I saw her face, true face, the envy stopped and now I think the ONLY thing I am slightly envious is her Japanese ha ha!
I mean, I think kota's humour is pretty funny. It's similar to mine, we'd get on I think.
I am not standing up for her though with the photoshop, rudeness and things like that though. But I just think its getting OLD now… "Shes this—" "She's that—" and it's ridiculous to always point out someone is jealous, people are entitled to their own opinions at the end of the day. Some people are still jealous and others just like to slag her off.
She isn't really doing anything wrong anymore. I think it's just the lying and getting to where she is that's pissed people off more than anything. If kota weebs and people really wanted to be like her then go find work in Japan after school, do some modelling over there if you've got the look or get into fashion design over there… I know it's not the same thing but it could lead you somewhere. Just sick of the saltiness…
I agree, PULLtards are just beating a dead horse. It's even worse when they want her to get harmed like get addicted to cigarettes and throw her life down the drain, selling nudes and PS secrets to make ends meet. Like wtf wishing that upon someone. that is 10000000000x worse than what she is doing.
Some people in Japan clearly like her looks even if she doesn't look like her PS pics. Who cares? IDK I guess I'm just desensitized to gaijins "who don't deserve it" getting famous in Japan. People like Beckii Cruel made me rage so hard but it lasted for a little while. I learned of idol culture and it made sense after that I just feel nothing.
Apparently PULLtards including the biggest offender kontrakoti cannot grow out of it. How psychologically disturbed do you have to be to continue chasing someone so heavily when they aren't even a lolcow anymore?
>>104708>>104869>>104827>insulting PULLtards while acting like PULLtards
This is lolcow, we shittalk about people as much as we want.
It's just an excuse to justify stalking her online. Some of the original people who claimed to be mad about her past behavior were from 4chan where nigger and faggot are thrown around freely.
There are a few real victims of Dakota's abuse who deserved an apology. The rest are bitter Tumlrinas offended that their kawaii goddess turned out to be a lying bitch who used them for fame. I wouldn't be surprised if they think they deserve a video of her begging for their forgiveness.
Pfft, Kontra is kota's biggest fucking fan on the planet! They do too far in depth with what she's up to. Everyday too, it's pretty sad, it actually is. Obsessive.
You're a tad late.
Blacks, overweight, asians (YES ASIANS), disabled, mexicans… her and keeks abused everyone tbh
She was part of kiki's scams, not a big part but still a part.
She cussed out a few people online for innocent comments they had left her.
Then there's the people irl she, Kiki, and their pathetic orbiters would verbally harass when they were out.
As far as I'm concerned those are the only people she actually needs to apologize to. The rest was just try hard bullshit encouraged by her sister.
Oh ok. sorry>>104926
I wonder if they did apologize to the IRL people. Doubtful, but we may never know I think.
I don't think either of them have, I could maybe
see Kota doing it, but never Kiki. Kiki is so delusional that she honestly thinks she's never done anything wrong in her entire life and that people just hate her for no reason/because they're jealous.
Weird fakey looking pout. >LOOK HOW MUCH I AM JUST LIKE THIS BARBIE I AM HOLDING.
people didn't hate her because she photoshopped or wore circle lenses, it was the fact that she denied it repeated & claimed that it was 'all natural' that got people's dander up. Combine that with the videos of her floating around as a kid making homophobic comments + some responses to 'internet stalkers', and that's how she got her reputation as a kawaii lesbian-hating faker.
People didn't hate her because of her 'persona', it was the lying about wigs, lenses, applying makeup prior to making 'makeup tutorials' & pretending she was clean-faced, etc…
She never recanted those lies because it would have blown apart her whole image, but she did apologize for her behavior as a kid (an entry that looks like it was later edited several times, possibly by Cathy? but no confirmation of this, I remember seeing the original though & feeling it was genuine. she obv. lurked the /cgl/ threads and was aware of what she was most heavily critiqued for)
Anyways, she didn't 'cheat' her way to Japan, >>104950
sounds bitter towards cute girls because they're the type to imagine that your looks will get you everything in life. this isn't true. Kota photoshopped, but advertisers and photographers will do this to any model–as evident from her changing face over various modelling campaigns. The only difference is that she showcased herself rather than waiting for a professional to notice her & do it.
That's true, she pretty much did market herself. Still, telling people you look like a 'real life barbie' is a bit silly though. I know WHY she did it and if she didn't she wouldn't be where she was today. Kudos to her for that in a sense..
In my eyes though it IS kind of cheating. But at the same time, it's not? It's a 'yes' and 'no' kind of strategy with her tbh and I doubt it'll end. You're ALWAYS going to get someone who disagrees and someone who'll defend kota.
At the end of the day, who really cares. It isn't as if she is a runway model, far from it because she's now slowly getting into TV work. Anyone can have an online persona, a name for themselves if they put the effort in. Kota is basically, to me, a catalogue and magazine model. Just like the ones you get here in the UK. That's it.
I know in Japan their magazines and fashion.. the way they go about things is a LOT different. People tend to make a big deal about how she got her fame. It's not that exciting. I think most girls were just bewildered as to how she got away with it really and then you got a handful who TRIED doing what she did, half the time it never really worked and they ended up making asses out of themselves or laughed at.
Kota got lucky.
She had some followers, she had some kind of skill with photoshop and camera, she had her sister's shitty backstory, she had tumblr, she did the doll thing at a time where it was kind of getting popular, she has a face that 'works' and did all the things that she knew would get her where they wanted to be, especially when Japan took interest. They're ALL your ingredients.
It's a one off and I don't think this will happen again, not unless someone is the full package with an actual talent and looks the exact same as they do in pictures.
It's like I said, the debate will never end. People are always gonna either defend her or diss her. Meh.
I think she did pretty much cheat if I'm honest, what can you do? Nihon loves her lol
I am too, I do think she is only good at certain angles though when it comes down to modelling. She suits just magazine work and websites at the most. But I would LIKE to see truthful models over there in the future. No bullshit or lies, just model and shush. I know kota is doing that but all this drama is ridiculous. I think it is slowly dying down though, like I said, no one cares because at the end of the day, it's not even important. Just a girl, like many million others out there in the world. A girl modelling, like hundreds more. That's it.
But I think what grinds people's tits is the 'living barbie' because honestly.. I don't know if it's Japan and it's thing for not really understanding much about westerners.. Kota doesn't look like a barbie doll. I've got friends who've gone to other countries and been called "Beyonce" or "Celine Dion" but they don't really know much about the people visiting their country, so they just use what they know or what they've seen in the media.
Ten years from now, none of this shit will even matter.
Yeah, that was at the time during, like you just said her editing phase.
She doesn't look like that now though in her new pictures and especially not in person.
not to defend her, but I think you're refering to one where she was asked if her eye color was real, and she said yes. >>105289
where did she say the part about hardly retouching her photos?
File: 1432088140645.jpg (147.26 KB, 500x669, 98ebf20e4a12c427ecd421256d041a…)
Her shoops used to be very nice, could pass as magazine levels of editing, but her shit is downright ridiculous now. She's not really an lolcow anymore but these huge straight up lies need to stop.
>this face isn't CG!
Sure models get shooped, but you'd think she'd do a better job on her own photos if her gimmick time and time again is about her all natural beauty.
>>105297>not really an lolcow anymore
I don't get why people say this. I think someone like Kooters is once a lolcow, always a lolcow. She just has PR now.
Stuff like her not denying she's half Japanese is one of the newer ones. Her interviews are also riddled with lies like always. It's just takes different forms from when she was pre-Japan famous.
Not really. There are people who screw up, and then in 5 years everyone totally forgets about them and moves on. The probably would have happened to her already if she had dropped off the internet the second she stopped acknowledging her critics (early 2012). But since she's still active online, there will always be people following her tail no matter what.
She's not presenting any more lulz worthy material, for a long time we've only been recycling old shit that doesn't even matter any more. So I agree that she's not really a lolcow at this point.
See, here's my two cents on why I roll my eyes every time I see some anon defend her with that "she deserves it! She had a hard life and a shitty family!" argument.
Dakota was rewarded for being a self centered liar and manipulator with a fat modeling contract that assured she would never have to experience working a shit job to teach her any humility. I don't Know why everyone thinks that between her being in FL and going to JP she had to face some huge thing that atoned for her being a massive liar and attention whore since literally before she hit puberty.
Yes, her family and home life were not what most people would call normal and definitely not healthy, but she had no responsibility, no obligations, didn't have to work or go to school, pay bills and her parents bought her clothes and expensive photography equipment and software, not to mention their macbooks and Kiki's instruments. Personally I know a lot of people who wish they'd had it as ~hard~ as she did growing up.
>inb4 but baww her parents made her super self conscious and favored Kiki more and her sister called her fat!!!111
Oh, so traumatizing. Because that's totally the worst treatment you could ever get from your parents/siblings, totes.
>but she had no friends! she was all alone abloobloo
That's why taking kids out of school that young is retarded, but also she has a few friends online and at least one IRL she met up with at least once. With her and Kiki's followers they both could have easily posted some feelers to meet up and hang out with people in Orlando, there's Plenty to do there. Dakota and Kiki never hadfriends because they were too busy trying to be famous and to be honest just don't give a shit about other people.
Sorry for the textwall, I don't hate Dakota but it does irk me how so many people se her as some brave survivor of a fucked up family who overcame such hardship when the reality of it is she just lied her way to where she is now and is in all likelihood the same rancid bitch she always was.
>>104828>I think the Japanese would know what their own people look like and would recognize an actual hafu.
LEL, no. I have very light natural blonde hair, pale skin, and dark brown eyes, 100% white, ski slope nose, high cheekbones, bony face TL;DR white as fuck. When I went to Japan I got asked by multiple people if I was wearing brown color lenses and if my eyes were really blue, when I told them my eyes were really brown every single time
the response was "oh, so are you half?"
I guess Japan is so used to seeing Anglos in the media that a blonde without blue eyes that's not mixed is a hard idea to process. TBH I think that's why Yuka and other brunette girls trying to be Japan famous don't get all that much attention, because they're not Anglo and Japan has a huge boner for Anglos (tell me I'm wrong, I dare you).
Eh, i dont think there are too many people like that, but maybe im just not paying attention.
Something you might want to take into consideration is the fact that many people are comparing Dakota with Kiki, even unconsciously. And you have to admit, Kota is much more charming than her (comparively) less successful sister.
Are you serious? Any time anyone says anything about her that isnt at least neutral there's a surge of "go back to PULL" "you're just jealous bc you're not a model in nippon" and "she's so mature im so proud I hope she makes it really big cuz she totes deserves it" etc.
And yeah, Kiki is massively shitty, but Dakota being less shitty by comparison… still isn't anything to brag about, considering just how awful Kiki is. That's like comparing gonorrhea to cancer.
Nah man, I guess I don't really see it. Though I do see your same arguement being reported word for word in previous posts….
Hey, not trying to excuse any ass kissing there may be, just trying to explain maybe the mindset behind it. I don't think Dakota having a sister as abhorrent as Kiki is an excuse for maybe/maybe not being a shitbag, but people might be seeing Dakota in a more positive light because of it. Do you get me?
I know what you're trying to say, but what I'm saying is that having a sack of shit for a sister doesn't make her a good person just because she's less shitty by comparison.
Look, I'm not saying Dakota is a human cancer, I'm saying she's a spoiled, self centered liar who never had to really work for anything. Catalogue and magazine modeling isn't very hard work, the hard part is getting into it wich Dakota also did by lying.
I'm not saying she's a good person though? I'm just offering insight as to why other anons might think she is.
Idk man, I feel like you have a hate boner for her and maybe you should let it go. She's not hurting anyone but herself and there are so many finer lulz to be had. You might stress yourself into a stroke.
But then again, it doesn't matter and I can't tell you what to feel. Do what you do, I guess.
And that entire last paragraph is exactly what irks me about Dakota whiteknights. You are literally doing exactly what I said you would. "meh well I guess ur just jealous just admit you're obsessed with her and get over it jeez lol".
There isn't anything about Dakota worth hating that isn't years old and beaten to a pulp, you're right, but her whiteknights are fucking irritating, denser than lead, and so far up her ass that Their replies are the only reason Dakota threads keep being made. That is literally every single Dakota thread, some pics of her and some news, then 300 posts of asskissing her and diging on whoever doesn't asskiss her or points out any of her flaws.
Very true, and honestly I am loving how little makeup she wears now compared to her Japan debut. It appears she just wears some kind of BB creme or foundation/powder, that downward facing eyeliner, minimal blush, minimal mascara and some white under the eyes for tearbags. On some of her fellow Popteen models Twitters you can even see her with what looks like simply lip gloss, foundation and lenses. She seems to be so much more comfortable with her real face. Remember that model who worked with Kota when she was newly in Japan? How she said Kota was obsessed with re-applying her makeup, and we never saw her without quite a bit on?
Well I think this more natural look is very sweet. She is not stunningly beautiful, but I think she is quite adorable and cute, like Japanese-school-girl-next-door.
Where in that last paragraph did I say that at all? I honestly said that you can do whatever you want because it doesn't matter
, dude. Her life isn't important enough to stress over. That's all. I don't really care for Dakota either way, It just seems to me like you have kind of an unnatural hatred of her and I think it would benefit you to not give a shit as much as you do.
But this is way off topic and I'm not contributing anything interesting, so I'll move on. Sorry for rustling your jimmies.
Yeah but if you look at most blogger, majority of them have a 'natural look' they use for everyday make up. Doesn't automatically make them a doll though.
Most girls do just put on foundation, bit of blush, mascara and lipgloss/lipstick with a natural tint.
It's nothing new. Pretty, but that's about it.
It's not 'ass kissing' or anything. Just hearing the same shit about her gets boring as fuck, she's NOT that interesting. I quite like kota, I'm not her biggest fan but the drama is BORING. She is BORING. She gets put on TV and its the same "omg so you're a barbie?!??!?!?!" and the same questions… That's all there is to her! I don't understand why people need to bash her constantly or get heated over nothing! The girl is just there! Oh my lord..
I don't know why everyone is going along with her no contacts lie … If it was in the west I could get why not a lot of people would pick it up, but I expect japanese teens to know and be able to recognise those large lenses.
It'd be funny if one got stuck, I usually only wear regular contacts but sometimes they move around a bit and (rarely) can get stuck under my eyelid. Maybe they cut to somebody else when/if that happens.
I don't think she was as messy as she was when she was younger. I think if you're wanting that from her and others are, they need to move on.
She's definitely still lulzy with these messy photoshops, tons of lies, and "living doll" persona still intact. Someone like Kota always has drama following her closely behind.
Dakota wasn't actually offered a "fat" modeling contract. Around the time she went to Japan and was 16 years old, she didn't get many modeling jobs. They weren't just handed to her without her doing nothing for it.
At some point she was struggling with money so much she had to collect fuckin 10 yen coins so she could buy 1 bread a day from a convenience store and survive on that. But she decided not to give up and came a long way!
Dakota didn't come to Japan when she was 16 though. It's been stated so many times that her and kiki are much older. That police report floating around even said that Kiki was borin in 1992 and Dakota was born in 1993. So, she's practically 22. She looks older, like her age? She can still pass off as young but she doesn't look younger than 18/19.
Kiki definitely looks a lot older.
someone sure sounds pissy over in their corner.
dude, using photoshop for your personal blog photos is not 'cheating'.
Submitting photoshopped pictures to apply to a modelling agency, yeah, that's questionable. But the agency has seen what she looks like, they've had the opportunity to drop her several times. She's been there long enough that her visa must have been renewed by now, which means she's getting jobs.
You can't 'cheat' in real life using those tactics. Clients who consider using her for their campaigns know she's not 'IRL Barbie', they can recognize circle lenses when they see them, she has to go to castings sans makeup, and she's been successful anyways. Like it or not, photoshop (and the controversy that surrounded her use of it) garnered her the attention to get into the field she chose. But she has the looks to make it there, anyways. The only difference is that now she has a gimmick whereas otherwise she'd be just your run-of-the-mill white girl model in Japan.
tbh it just sounds like you're jelly that the same opportunity hasn't just fallen in your
The incredible irony is that Dakota more or less has always been FU to her fans. When she garnered popularity, people were full on with their conspiracy theories and hate-filled tumblr posts. Now that Dakota is established, everyone is licking her ass.
I'm kind of indifferent of her. It's definitely been interesting following her career.
>>105615>When she garnered popularity, people were full on with their conspiracy theories and hate-filled tumblr posts. Now that Dakota is established, everyone is licking her ass.
That's because they aren't the same people, most of the old truth bloggers moved to other things just like how it also was with most Feelice bloggers.
Her former chinese fans still hate her tho for dumping them and her weibo right after Japan noticed her.
Sure she abuses camera editing apps and filters too shit these days but you take a look at videos featuring her filmed by other people and her candid shots and she looks downright angelic.
tbh I am so done with the Kota drama and the people trying to cling to it really do come across as being extremely jealous that Kota went off and fulfilled her dreams despite having a shitty history.
I come from an abusive home myself and really I couldn't be more happier for her. People don't understand just how much that kind of environment poisons you until they've lived it themselves.>>105064
Makeup could be considering cheating too, you gonna go follow around every model in the world and harass them for "cheating"?
You stink of jello, ese.
This video in particular.
I really wish I could find a higher quality video because she really does look stunning in this one. The hair length, style and black tank really, really suits her.

No because not everybody on this board actually hates Dakota.
From what I've witnessed the majority now support her, with a very small minority still jumping up and down and screeching "CHEATER, FAT, ADOBE AE, RACISM, CIRCLE LENSES!", typically those that have originated from PULL.
Not that person you replied to*
Was coming to Japan really kota's dream though? I don't think it was. I personally think she wanted to be a runway model
I think they say that because don't some Japanese girls TRY and look half though? So they probably dye their hair, contacts and have a cutesy style. Hence why they might ask if you're half due to this…
I've yet to see an actual half Japanese person with blonde hair and blue eyes…
I'm not that person you're responding to.
In all honestly, if it was ALLOWED and it could happen AGAIN most girls probably would try and do this. As if those living dolls or whatever wouldn't take that opportunity. But it's only Japan anyway, it's not as if this is some big modelling job. I don't want to sound mean but I really don't think it's THAT big of a deal. Korea dropped her apparently, so it's only Japan kota is swarming all over.
Like I've said before, she'll be a TV personality no doubt and modelling for magazines/wesbites. But I don't see it as big as anything in the West.
So's TaylorR, but she's fucked that up for herself. Taylor I think is prettier, she has that 'look' about her, an actual model look. Whereas kota has that 'there is something about her' and 'cutie' look. But not a runway face. She's already been on the runway before and seeing the pictures, it wasn't so good… i'm not trying to sound salty, but they weren't. I think the cuter the face, the worse for modelling unless it's been tampered with photoshop. But the more unusual the face, the better it looks in picture and runway.
meh thats my take on it
Nah, girls were pissed off because they wanted to be the le nihon living doll but kota got there first.
that's why girls are salty as hell towards her
i think cutesy girls are the best for modeling j fashion and lolita (unless they are japanese which kota isnt)
for regular fashion id agree with you
If she continues at the rate she does I really can see her with her own fashion label or makeup line.
She's doing incredibly well for herself considering her circumstances.
I can see kota maybe leaning more to a designer path… Just a bit of a shame when people are at university trying to get a label for themselves.. But I guess, with small businesses nowadays and socialmedia anyone can pretty much create a little label for themselves.
I can kind of see kota's being all garters and things like that. I hope if that's the case, it's not similar to Creepyyeha's… that girl's stuff has already been ripped off so, so many timesss…
Eck, I shouldn't be saying this but I'm the one that originally delivered that information on /cgl/ and I did so after receiving it from somebody who knew Dakota personally at the time.
I never went into it too much so it could range from anything to light slapping to full on smacking their shit but I'm not going to go into it too far because I was never really supposed to tell anybody in the first place but I did so because I felt so shitty for Dakota and thought people needed to know so they could ease up on her.
Like you can say there's no proof but I know for a fact it's true.
and I can say with absolute confidence that she really was physically abused by Cathy in some manner or another.
a dad taking pictures of his daughter in a teeny bikini is creepy, but that has nothing to do with the definition of neglect.
And during the time Kiki was raging at Chris Stone on twitter she posted a police report thing that showed that she was having issues in school because some girl had beat her up, and another one pulled out a knife. ..like idk, but Florida schools suck ass and physically bullying is pretty scary, so I don't doubt that they pulled her out of school for good reason.
Yes, which is why I said "other forms of abuse." I said "being neglectful of them" because that's another thing they did.
Yeah that is a good reason. The students should have never done that no matter what she did. But I think even if they weren't in public school, they should get a quality homeschool without being dangerously publicized on the internet.

She isn't even trying anymore, good. I'm glad.
Agreed, it is cute. But I just think she looks a little strange at the same time. I do prefer her style back when she first started this 'doll' look.
She has Amo's hair and that's about it.
She's boring because she can't have drama surrounding her which may shatter her innocent hafu kawaii angelic barbie look. Kota must have all Japanese believe she has never seen an episode of South Park and that she's cute because she speaks like a dude in Japanese. But, hell, she's cute so it doesn't matter.

She looks like the older sister of Moe twin style lmao
You guys need to stop this right now. Yeah, I know it's just lolcow but you can't go around anonymously claiming you knew Dakota personally and that her parents physically abused her unless you're able to prove either of those claims.
>there is no proof that she wasn't hit or abused.
Shut up. That "guilty until proven innocent" bullshit doesn't work in real life, you can't just go around saying shit because you want
it to be true so Dakota looks like the poor little helpless victim. You need proof that Cathy DID abuse Dakota before you can go around saying shit like that. Otherwise what you're doing now is akin to girls crying rape when people find out they had sex and they're trying to make themselves look better.
>it could range from anything to light slapping to full on smacking their shit
Neither of those = physical abuse. You sound like those bleeding heart hippies who think spanking their kids is abuse. Do you kniw what actually constitutes physical abuse of a child? Clearly you don't, but I'm sure now you'll Google it and come back with some vague story about how Cathy sprained Dakota's wrist by pushing her down the stairs or some shit.
Jeez, all this reaching for reasons why everyone has
to love Dakota or else is getting sadder and sadder. I wonder how long until someone claims Danny used to touch on her after he was done "raping" Kiki, jfc.
Oh my gawd so much edge. You also sound like Totemokawaii because you shove words in the mouths of others and accuse people of saying she's 100% innocent lol.
True, innocent til proven guilty is usually how it should go right? But then you could say that about her being sincere about her apology. inb4someonesaysI'msayingDakotaisaninnocentangellamb. No I'm not, I'm pointing out possibilities, Totemocow.
Idk who Totemokawaii is, but I'm guessing she must be a big deal on Tumblr with how often you guys namedrop her on here.
Seriously, when did this board just become Anonymous Tumblr? It's ike nobody who posts here has any grasp on reality or how the real world works, or how facts work, etc. It's Just "love kawaii Japanese princess Dakota Rose or else be trolled into oblivion". Nobody has a 100% approval rating, and just because someone disagrees with you about your precious avatar Dako-chan doesn't mean they're Totemokawaii or some jelly weeb. Modeling is for self conscious girls who crave attention and approval from others, and not everyone is like that.
Wth are you even trying to say? Did you even read my post? Fine, I'll simplify it for you:
Pls don't go around claiming Dakota was abused by her mother without objective and undeniable proof because that shit ain't cool.
Before we know it this place is just gonna sound like a Dakota RP thread. >she was abused as a kid by her whole family>She has a secret boyfriend who is much older than her, to take the place of the father she wished she'd had growing up>Her secret dream is to be an artist, she only got into modeling to get away from her shitty family
The reverse version could be said about you. You're trying really hard to make Dakota hated. She could have been abused, then again she may not have been abused.
Thinking she was abused does not mean abuse gives her a free pass to act crappy. It also doesn't mean she is some innocent lamb. Stop with the strawman arguments.
Kota made a new blog post. If I'm not mistaken, she's going to be doing a photoshoot somewhere that's not in Japan? Please correct me if my translation is wrong.
"To go to a place that's not in Japan
It's for a photoshoot, however
I will do my best!"
File: 1432732792827.jpg (221.35 KB, 485x612, tumblr_m07vg9773m1qzy8r9.jpg)
Oh my god shut up.
You want some proof? Picture related is your proof.
I was friends with Charlotte/Charms. Dakota personally told Charlotte who then personally told me when we touched upon the topic over Skype about how Cathy was physically abusing her and that I quote "that Kirsten and Scott were doing nothing to stop and it and basically ignoring it when it happened".
It got so bad that Charlotte actually offered to let Dakota move into her place to escape from it and Dakota was going to do it too, but then she got her Bravo contract and moved to Japan.
Dakota also confided in her about how awful Cathy was in regards to her looks, apparently super critical of them and constantly picking on her about them.
When she says abusing I have no idea the scale of but I know it was physical and emotional, and FYI smacking, hitting and slapping your child is fucking abuse you ginormous, pampered chlamydia infected twat.
I have been curled up in a ball on my sofa with my mother punching and slapping me before and what hurt way more than the blows was the psychological and emotional damage it causes so just shut the fuck up.
I am not even supposed to be talking about this because A. it's none of my business and B. it was told to me in confidence but honestly I feel so fucking bad for Dakota that I think that it's worth people knowing because it really does sound like she's had it rough.
Hey man, I understand that abuse is awful and it especially sucks when people say you're lying about your own abuse. I get that.
But to be perfectly honest, unless Dako-chan or her sister say anything confirming or denying these allegations of abuse, they are moot. Unless Dakota says "I was abused" or we can find evidence of her saying that before in her internet history, unfortunately we are faced with a lack of proof. (I tend to be on the side of that if people admit to abuse, it probably happened, except for people who do it for attention– but even then, it's easy to pick out because it's usually the first thing they ever say to you.)
I am personally of the opinion that they grew up in a fucking whacky household and I would not put it past Cathy to be abusive. But you are anon and we cannot confirm your claims, unless you give us chat logs ect. it's the internet. pics or it didn't happen, unfortunately.
inb4 you're invalidating her abuse!! nah, it's possible it happened to her and I feel really sorry for her if it did. but she's done really well for herself, she's obviously getting enough modeling jobs to support herself financially and I think it's awesome if she was able to overcome her abuse to become a successful person. But no one can really say whether or not it happened, except for Dakota.
Actually I was talking with Charlotte on Skype when that happened and it's neither a "different version", they're all pieces of a timeline. The story never changed once, you just aren't putting them in order.
Dakota and Charlotte were friends, blah, blah, they talked etc.
Dakota got the Bravo contract.
At this point Dakota stops messaging Charlotte.
Couple of days later that photo set of Dakota standing around a park or some shit wearing the VW horn tiara shows up on her blog.
Charlotte messages her asking her were she got them.
Dakota lies and tells her that they're authentic (which they're obviously not, anybody can tell if you've seen the authentic ones).
Dakota never ends up telling her and then proceed to ignore her.
That's it. That's the end.>>111671
I was after the horns myself and at the time the replicas had only JUST completed production and were ridiculously hard to find on Taobao if you weren't Chinese/didn't have a Chinese friend to search for you because they weren't just listed under "Vivienne Westwood horns", it was some bullshit that translated to like "Saturn (because of the VW logo) cow horn cone metal tiara princess crown" and used a shit load of weird characters that you just wouldn't think to use because CHINA.
Now it's easy because now they've been found the links to the Taobao sale pages are everywhere but back then it was so difficult.
This was in 2012 and my PC has undergone a lot of formats since then so I obviously don't have chatlogs, but even so, I wouldn't screw over Charlotte like that.
I personally believe it happened because when she told me on Skype it wasn't as if she was posting publicly on a forum or whatever where people can just say you're making stuff up for attention, it was a private Skype conversation where the Dakota thing just happened to pop up and she expanded a little on her relationship to her. She had no reason to lie to me.
I don't like doing this though because I know I wouldn't be happy if somebody was talking about me on a forum but I'm doing it for Dakota's sake because I'm a victim of parental abuse myself and I know just how soul destroying it is.>>111712
I like her. She's pretty nice and we have/had a lot in common which makes her relatable to me. I don't really talk to her any more though which is why I wouldn't say we're "friends". I don't really know her but she's pleasant enough imo.
I understand that, I do. If you think it happened then I'm not going to try to convince you or anyone else that it didn't, because it's pretty realistic imo. I am not accusing you of lying.
But again, being anon and with no sort of proof, unfortunately there is no undeniable evidence that what you are saying is true. Again, I will reiterate that I'm sure it's possible and I would never invalidate Dakota if she ever came out and admitted she was abused. No one deserves that. But you have to realize there is no real evidence to your claims, so there's no reason for any of us to believe you about what Charms said. Sorry.
Also kind of weird you are defending Charms when I've never seen her defending on lolcow before and the general consensus is that she's a pretty shitty person. But I won't accuse you of anything.
Naw it's cool if nobody believes it, nobody has to at the end of the day, I just thought I'd put it out there so that people are at least aware of an alternative to story to just "lol Dakota is/was a mean person for absolutely no reason so let's destroy her".
Also lol no, I am not Charlotte. I guess it does look kind of suspect.
It's actually not too hard to figure out who I am but that's a whole other can of worms and for that reason I'm outta this thread before it derails.

I didn't really pay attention to the whole /cgl/ drama involving cosplayers or tripfags, so I personally have no clue as to your identity (spoony? idk no fucking clue.)
Also I'm gonna say I personally believe you and I don't think the Ostrenga home was a great place to be. I don't think it's normal for parents to allow their kids to become what Kiki Kannibal and Dakota Rose became on the internet; I personally feel there was probably at least neglect involved, if not abuse. But I can't prove it so I won't say it happened.
I'm a huge fan of Dakota lol so you don't have to convince me she's not a terrible person. She's probably just flawed, like the rest of us. I'm glad she got out of her house and became a model, learned a new language, and made new friends. Even if people still think that she's a liar, she's really an evil person inside, that she doesn't deserve her job ect. I still like her. shrugs

Has this been posted yet?
I wonder if Japan will start hiring anymore models for this kind of things. I mean, all you gotta be is white and cute, right?
Meh and kota seems happy enough, no one really cares anymore because the doll thing isnt viral anymore and she barely even makes videos so shrugs
Can you shoop tho?
Will they notice?
or just a really good agent?
what are kiki and kota's real experience with modeling? wearing swim suits and paint and freaky hair styles in front of dad's camera? um…
unless after the myspace hayday they did some jobs on the down low. otherwise i cant think of any real experience koti has. IMO she just has her mom's pressure and a good agent.
she's not that bad in real life BUT theres not doubt she's better in photos.
and im getting tired of her same old schtick on tv (being sassy and speaking like a raucous nip man)
Not to be a salty bitch, but like most personalities, I don't understand why Dakota needs to be on TV. Gameshows and the doll thing I can/could understand. But to keep going on shows and telling Japan how she became a barbie doll is tiring. It's like Venus, the whole same old same old at interviews about her wanting to be a doll.
I know some people have never seen it before and are only just hearing about it. But it gets repetitive and boring. I don't understand why it can be THAT fascinating because dolls have been around for many years and some girls/guys do have dolly features, but why does it have to be something that's made a big deal about?
Also has anyone else noticed, I've seen so many 'living doll' interviews with different girls, just to see what they say and why they're 'different'. Most of the time Venus, that russian one and the weird anime fairy looking one are all there but Dakota is never there in the preview/slideshows? Is it the copyright thing or–? Is Dakota just the 'Japanese living barbie doll'? It's weird, I don't get why she's never added in that circle.
But yeah, pretty much everytime Dakota goes on live shows she's just using male honorifics and trying to be funny. She looks lovely, don't get me wrong but… I heard Rola used to talk like a child, that's what made her popular. Seems if you have a 'persona' you're in apparently or if you act a certain way on shows over there… you're in.
Aw, koti actually looks fucking adorable in that unshooped picture!!!!! I actually went "EEEEEEEE!!!"
But those shoops… scary… Not fond of the extensions.. Do think she looks lovely with her new hair tho!
The living doll trend IS dead anon. Only late retards are trying to milk that shit again (see Venus Angelic), it's as dead as emo and scene (inb4 Moemo arrives to tell me how scene/emo is "NOT DEAD1!")
I can't wait to see the new EXCITING trend the internet will bring us. Along with more lolcow goodness. I wonder tho, do you guys think emo/scene and living doll bullshit will ever resurface under a new light one day?
I'm waiting for ~*ethereal rotten flower baby who loves bugs*~ ~*sad eerie baby doll*~ ~*angel victim*~ fashion to become oversaturated. It's sad because I really like that aesthetic, but it's getting way too big for its own britches, especially when it's combined with creepyyeha merch, dd/lg bullshit, flower crowns and what's commonly known as nymphet fashion.
They go hand in hand at this point.

She looks real good in this selfie. I mean, REALLY good.
File: 1432867313302.jpg (153.34 KB, 2080x942, kote.jpg)
boy have times changed
Kiki's done some down low things. Like having her picture in front of a local hair salon (does that count?), some gigs in LA that never amounted to anything, and a few other odd jobs for small places. I don't think Dakota ever did anything though. >>111932
nu-uh. Kotex landed a modeling contract in Japan with zero experience and no portfolio (they even had to use her selfies on their website for a while because she had nothing professional to show). Though it was more than just being cute and white, her popularity in Japan was skyrocketing at the time because of her Japanese subbed youtube videos and her picture blog. The only other kawaii white girl who reached something similar was Venus. But she wasn't smart enough to milk it right.
I wonder what it'll be next then.. So we've had scene queens, living dolls, pastel goth girls… currently we're on the sad eyed nicole dollanganger dead corpses i love baby grubs and weepy angel music flower crown fad… What is the magical girl thing someone mentioned? I've noticed, every 'kawaii doll girl' has to have a sailor moon bag or something sailor moon… I always found it pretty overrated tbh.
HMM.. what about space cow girls? Oh I know! Retro doll barbie girls? I've yet to see a vintage fad go off, like a kawaii Audrey Hepburn or something lol.
But yeah, where ever there is a new trend they'll be more fucking idiots.
I wonder if Kota and Keekz will jump to that trend once it kicks in? Or do you think Kota will just stick at this doll thing now she has anchored in Japan?
PLUS.. she doesn't really dress dolly now. I think she just looks normal, like larme kei at the most…
It's a little off… can't say I'm taken by mahou kei, looks just like fairy kei. I know mori kei is quite popular but it's not as… yeah.
I'd like a cutesy vintage style, but there a loads like that already… and I don't think I could stomach someone like kiki going "im the new elizabeth taylor" tho god no

Guys, she just has light coloured thin hair.
I have virtually the exact same colour as her and my hair is just as thin, only difference being mines naturally wavy so it gives an impression of having more volume, and fortunately despite it being thin I have quite a lot of it.
It's not over-bleaching, it's not dye damage, it's not stress, it's just genetic.
Even mine when I pull my hair back, it looks sparse as fuck, you could even say balding, but when it's down I look completely normal. It's just a hair type.
Out of all the things people rag on Dakota for, the hair thing I never got. Like, you guys have seriously never seen somebody with this hair style before?
Yeah, even I know and I have a totally different texture than you.
I've seen PLENTY of girls with fine hair like this when it's pulled back. It's not balding, it's just how the hair is. My mother is like that, whereas my grandmother's is thicker. All hair is different.
Just how it works.
kota doesnt have to do shit, tbh
sure her living doll rearu baabi is getting old, but it got her this far and no matter what stupid shit she may endorse, even the same old shit, shes still a face people will recognize.
People have different hair textures.
Some people have unbelievably thick hair, so thick you can't understand how they can possibly manage it, and some people have thin hair, hair so thin it looks painful to even attempt to tie up.
It happens, it doesn't make it abnormal. If it's common and frequent it's generally consider normal.
Dif anon and yes, she has fine, thin hair. While there is a certain amount of shedding that's normal (what comes out when you brush/comb your hair usually) Kota's hair is almost abnormally thin, as in not enough on her head. It only seems to look nice/normal when she has extensions in. If you remember the videos she did before she got famous, you could tell the amount of hair on her head was pretty minuscule and that she made sure her bald spots didn't show (mostly.)
It's likely because she's fried so much of it from her scene kid days. At least she has pros working on it now.
Her hair looks the same as it always has done to me. I think it's just different styles and lighting. My auntie had hair as thin as Kotas, maybe even thinner. There was nothing wrong with her, just unfortunate genetics.>>113395
Even if her hair was fried in her scene days, once the damaged hair grows out it should just go back to normal.
>>113408>Even if her hair was fried in her scene days, once the damaged hair grows out it should just go back to normal.
Not always. And you'd have to cut the fried dead parts off first, before it starts to grow in nice again. I've seen people struggle trying to grow out their over-dyed hair without trimming the actual fried part off. Even for her hair to look better, she would have likely needed to go bald initially.
Not saying it isn't unfortunate genetics, but that ain't kawaii. (Mind you, I've seen 18 year old girls who have already started their pattern baldness cycle. VERY unfortunate genetics.)

wanted to try and see how she'd look without lenses
hm. Nice attempt, but they wouldn't be that small.
After all, you an see her real iris behind the lens, there's no space between her normal iris & bottom lid.
Looks like she's trying to keep sperm in her mouth without throwing up
File: 1432971049466.gif (234.94 KB, 500x313, tumblr_lqoffghjpI1qljbqro1_500…)
Um, she's wearing massive circle lenses.
Everyone has the same size iris, with the exception of maybe 1/2 mm.
err. I realise that. I mentioned it.
I just meant in that particular photo it looks like her iris has no space.

Kooter claiming this is her no makeup face lol
File: 1433010284342.png (176 KB, 311x360, 1421708765049.png)
I see no difference between her own no make-up face and Etude House's no make-up face sarcasm
But honestly, if I were a man I'd find it scary to wake up next to such "make-up free face" every morning.
Yeah, I wasn't too sure. I took her iris' from the first image on the left here >>113880
and pasted them on the right and just whitened out the part where her circle lenses were still exposed
In that video though where she's answering questions… I've noticed something. I've watched A LOT of J-drama, chat shows and interviews. I notice a lot of female Japanese, young, tend to do that thing with their lips when they speak? It's like a pout… I know the actress Saki Fukuda tends to do it. Dakota sits the way they would, back straight and knees together. Nods, smiles and "etoooo… anoooo…" -__-
She's really fitting in, isn't she?
But when the guy is asking her and she's scratching her head making like "Ah.. oh.. nnn" cute noises?
Oh… dumb barbie persona… pffttttt this girl reckons she's got Japan sussed ahaha
The mannerisms is part of the assimilation. Even if your comprehension and speaking is basic as long as you nail those you're halfway to looking the part.
She does say basic phrases and repeats them for most her interviews. She can't help being asked the same dumb qs though.
Tbh the whole "Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh, ano, etooooo" part of Japanese is actually a really important part of the language.
My Japanese class once spent an entire lesson just practising the "Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" together trying to get the pitch just right, and the difference between Un and Unnn.
The quick slurring and skipping over certain vowels even whole syllables is from learning by speaking with others informally.
If she learnt how to read/write then she'd realize the parts she was missing. Her tweets are poorly done with the slang. She types out how she would say things but forgets how the lack of structure is confusing.>>114307
This. And yup, it's totally fake and totally annoying. More so when a white person does it to act Japanese.
um no. here's the report (scroll all the way to the bottom) https://archive.lolcow.farm/kikikannibal/ostrenga_cespedes/police%20reports/2010_report.pdf
it says the guy didn't find any marks on them at all, and that there has been scratching and hair pulling between Kirsten and Cathy. The only thing it said about Dakota is that Cathy grabbed her arm and told her to go to her room. nothing beyond that. and it didn't say anything about hiding in any room.
or actually, I'll just copy and paste the statements here
>Kristen Ostrenga stated the following:
She asked her mother to take her to the doctor to get an allergy test Her mother refused and stated she needed to stop taking the birth control pill which was making her moody and the reason for her skin rash Kristen and her mother began to argue about the past and present issues Kristen walked away slammed her bed room door Her sister Dokota began yelling at her mother in the hallway Kristen came back into the hallway and they all continued to argue Her mother asked her for her cell phone Kristen refused to give it to her Her mother grabbed the phone out of Kristen shand and walked down stairs with the phone At this point Kristen and her sister began throwing household items down the stairs Her mother returned to the upstairs hallway and told Kristen she was calling their father and he would calm everyone down Kristen and Dokota continued to yell curse and throw things down the stairs Her mother grabbed Dokota by the arms and told her to go to her room and stop throwing things in the hallway Kristen yelled to her mother to give her

what is she doing with her lips lately
it looks like she got stung by a bee
Am I the only one loving her hair like this?
Also, is she going to continue modelling though? She wears extensions a lot these days…
that sad limp little pony tail
the style is cute though
And those things are the MAIN things that she uses, aside from after effects and special lighting.
She wants to pretend she's all natural all the time.
File: 1433127348148.jpg (25.74 KB, 500x376, tum.jpg)
yeah. she after effected that shitty webcam video for her tiny starter pack tumblr followers.
This is one of her earlier videos so it's easy to see that she added rough motion trackers and stayed in the same spot. She added effect liquify on the chin, then added effect bloat on the eyes.
Due to turning her head and speaking the motion tracker doesn't work perfectly and you see her chin suddenly become a square on the sides.
We know what her real face should be like so this isn't even necessary.>>104645
File: 1433128940944.png (327.74 KB, 854x476, kotex.png)
lmao where did I say it can't be done? I implied it's a stupid thing to bother with, and I'm not new here, I've been around since that video was posted on her tumblr. she doesn't use after effects and she never has. there is zero proof for this except paranoid "look!!1 that one pixel on her nostril just moved!"
. People can look drastically different with makeup, special lighting and angle play. And if you don't know (or don't believe) this, it's 100% because you don't have enough experience with makeup or video preparation to know what difference it can make. It doesn't matter that you've used after effects, and did it on your own videos, and it worked. That's not proof that she does. There are enough modeling videos to prove she can look perfectly the same without it. I bet if this video on the left were uploaded by her, you would all scream "after effects" at it too.
Requesting old vids where she actually talks English, especially in an annoying manner. Anytime I feel that urge to root for her or cheer her on, all I do is actually hear her speak her native language and hate her again. The Japanese personality is especially fake. She always came off really deadpan and egotistical, moreso than her sister.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDVJZ9LbecU
Here's an example of her pushing the living doll image by her goo-goo doll gaze. Remember her lack of ~kawaii~ Japanese voice here. That's the real her. Some awkward modeling there too.
If you want to see her speaking English: http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/qzezKwxHjyo/
"Why are you so perverted and disgusting?" haha, far from her current kawaii persona.

I really don't understand why Kota insists on drawing her lips the way she does. It looks like she's sucking on something sour all the time.
I feel she would look much better with normal fucking lips

it looks like a grandpa shirt. im not even complaining because its dakota, just anyone that wears that shirt lol

following asian trends =/= trying to be asian
and even if westerners do follow their makeup/hair trends, they really dont achieve the same effect.

Dakota got a small Lizmelo gig and she looks cute as fuck in the shots.
she's definitely getting into the AMO/RISA style now.
the hair style, the shoes and that mon lily style of clothing
if the UK had those cute clothes! i'd fucking buy them too!!!! (:
Mmmm, exactly. They do end up looking very similar.
I want to get into this style too but I'd prefer to do my own twists on things. There is a girl called Cornelia who runs the blog FASHIONSQUID. She also has this kind of hair too, before Dakota did. She's pretty damn cute! I'm surprised she isn't modelling!
File: 1433448882807.gif (375.78 KB, 500x469, Internet.gif)
Dang dude, that's dank. She changed kontrakoti to cuntrakoti
That hairstyle isn't exactly unique. It's one of the generic girl hairstyles. (Now I sound PULL-ish because it sounds like I'm shitting on Kota. I'm not I'm just being neutral and pointing out it's a normal hairdo lol)
Anyway your post sounds a bit like a self post but I could be wrong since I talk about others that way too on chan boards and I am not those people that I speak of
Nah, you're not shitting on kota. It's obvious, she is copying other models hair and models over there tend to follow each other like sheep to fit their little mould. I mean, I'm not trying to be mean as much as I like those hairstyles. How many more cutesy kawaii styles can they possibly do? They all look the same, it's all been done and nothing looks new anymore. They all get recycled at some point. I just think this one kota has, like amo is that the bangs play a big part.. giving it that 'aw cute little dolly' look.
It's all pretty meh when you think about it. Larme kei or w/e it is, it's cute but how far can cute really go until it's just meh. I feel like we've reached that point tbh.
It's the angle that prevents the panty shot and placement of her legs, nothing to have with her being "chunky" and you have some warped standards like most people here actually if you think her legs are chunky.>inb4 "you sound fat"/"hi kota"
just kinda sick of people shitting on kooter's size
kota is just normal sized in my eyes, literally here in the UK i see girls her size all over the place, it's just normal? i dont think much of her size though, it's just her body. She's not stick thin and she's not podgy, just body average.
i think her hair and face is more interesting tbh
sure she holds more weight in her tummy but its far from being a huge bulging gut.
and her body like many western girls will never be comparable to an asian girls, so idk what you expect from her.
im sure if she was your average anorexic white chick you'd shit on her too
I think he doesnt know he's tagging fake accounts…
oh man that's so creepy, his whole facebook is about Kota

It's good to see her smiling i think she looks happier and more confident this days, and she looks cute, it makes me comfortable deep inside for some reason to see her doing ok?>inb4 "lol u coming from pull to lick her ass"
Nah I just like seeing the girl happy,actually y'know i think Dakota isn't really a bad person, I think all the shit she said and did was kinda influenced by her awful sister and awful family (on top of that, Cathy and Kaka would call her "fat" and all that stuff so she had a skewed body image and low self confidence), she still did shit and i'm not gonna deny any of it, that was pretty uncool of her, but i also think that we all did some shit when we were younger.
She went from that awkward "living doll" appearing on tv looking nothing like her shoops to now, sure she isn't a perfect kawaii baabi dorru, no one is anyway but everyone can be one with Photoshop, but she seems more chill and confident and i think she's a cute girl and i followed her since 2011, I use to dislike her,i was friend with truthbloggers and i would poke fun at her like "har har she so ugly and not a kawaii thin perfect barbie durr", it was actually pretty stupid of me but somehow i kinda just liked her more and more after all the stupid drama died down and just hope good things for her?
I'm weird jfc sorry if i type like a retard english isn't my mother language but hope you guys got what i'm saying.
Shit that was stupid.
but shit that was kinda cute. I sort of missed hearing her english voice that isn't some kawaii rori high pitched voice
Take your salty vag somewhere else.
This video was only liked on MioMio and it's been showing errors on my end. All of this has been new content on this board.
Why do you even fucking care if she is oror isn't a bitch?
This isn't fucking bitchcow, it's LOLCOW and Dakota hasn't done anything lulzy for literally years.
You are trying so fucking hard to push this vendetta and honestly you look pathetic and jealous.
Look who's getting defensive now. Why am I–actually no, why is it everyone who points something out or has an opinion is suddenly, jealous? I am not jealous though.
ALL am I saying is that we don't know her at all, I don't even know WHY she still has a thread anyway since she's NOT done anything lulzy in years. We only know her as the BITCH, the bitch her bitchy sister brought out in her. We only know THAT Dakota. I'm just saying that she's not much of an angel because of the previous lies and lying about her appearance at the START of the doll persona she led online. That's what I meant. Christ, I'm not saying that she's the anti-christ's minion or anything. Stop overreacting, that's the problem with people in this thread. They get annoyed if you make a remark or if you're bashing Dakota.
Would Dakota care about this thread? Pfft, she wouldn't give a flying fuck or a fuck about what we say about her. Seems she doesn't give a fuck because look at her now! She's happy.
Am I pathetic or jealous for wishing happy? No.
I don't care whether she is a bitch or whether she isn't. Why do you care about what I say? Why are you even on this thread?
No need to jump down my throat about it. I'll say what I want, besides it's hardly the WORST thing anyone has ever said about her anyway. Calm your ass down.
im jel as fuck apparently
You sound way too invested in this girl's personal life to the point that it makes people suspicious of your motives.
To put it plainly, you sound obsessed.
Funny thing is, I'm actually not though? All I know is based on what I've read on here and PULL (and no I don't have an account on there either but I've lurked)
Now you're just making shit up. Again, why are you on this thread? Surely, you're just as interested too? She isn't doing anything 'lulzy' so why're you here? Seems you're a bit too interested too.
This thread just gone full retard.>>118715
It's stupid but Kooter believes in this aesthetic herself. Just look at her shooped pics with toothpick legs she never had.
I'm here because in the middle of switching tabs on my phone to my hentai I saw your dumb ass making a fool of yourself and thought I'd do you a favour and tell you to knock that shit off but you're awfully persistent.
As I thought, your posts reek of unwarranted indignation and jealousy.

Did she photoshop her face in a screenshot again? It looks weird.
>>118713>Just because someone gives a few smiles and nods in cute clothes, doesn't mean they're not a bitch.
Is the burden of proof somehow on her? Does she have to definitively show the public beyond a reasonable doubt that she is not, in fact, a bitch?
Maybe she is a bitch, but if she's not currently known to be a bitch then she's clearly not a lolcow.

WHat do you think?
Like I said, we ONLY know her from back then. We don't really know this new kota, she doesn't give much about herself away anymore. I don't blame her either to be honest. But how do we know she's changed?
You see, this is why people get pissy. You're questioning her, making kota out to be a 'bad person'. I'm doing no such thing, I am just saying how do we know she's changed and that this isn't all an act? Because the delusional barbie thing she does in interviews acting all coy is certainly an act. For the public of course and her image. Even so, doesn't mean someone is jealous because they're wondering or questioning it. That's the issue, people are branded 'jealous' because you have something to say about someone. It's not always the case though.
Even so, if she's not a lolcow anymore… why is she even still on this board?
She's doing nothing wrong, so far. Just seems to be living her life.
People just want her to do lulzy shit you see. For something to point out and laugh at. Lol and I got told I was bad… oh dear.
Whatever, I'm done with this.
Can someone please send Dakota a "fan mail" like >>86227

not to beat a dead horse, but her hair was thick this time last year
damn she's really cute there, i fucking love when she use her deep normal voice it's so much prettier than her fake loli crap.
Also it's nice to see her in "normal clothes", i think she should stop the kawaii pastel bullshit and maybe go back to her older style it looked so nice on her tho, also heavy eye makeup looked amazing on her
If she did though, I think people would find her boring. All these models tend to wear cutesy dolly clothes anyway, so it's just catering for the audience. I do myself, think she would suit a natural and mature look but until she's fed up playing barbie then she'll keep wearing it.
I don't get it? Barbie never even wore kawaii clothes though? I never understand why they branded her barbie and not anime girl or anime doll… Idk.
Her actual voice is much better, I was surprised when I watched the video with her on the bus. I like her true voice! It's nice.
yea like all the other kawaii girls and idols, she's only known among younger people. and i guess old creepy men. but thats about it.
theres no reason any rational human out of their teens should hail her as some mega celeb. if anything its the teens who are like OMG SO CUTE. thats about it

here she is in the newest popteen mag
I've seen the scans and I own some, not popteen but I've seen the popteen models. I know, they're all yellow and tacky in person compared to the shoops in the magazines. Again, it's just for cuteness and appeal. If they didn't shoop everyone then it wouldn't look good.
I found the latest issue of popteen on ebay, I've never bought a popteen magazine actually and debating on doing so. It does look like a fairly cute magazine! Wish we had cute shit over here in the UK… but nah everyone wants to look like Kim K and our fashion is uglyyyyyy
I get the feeling Dakota will deign to remain in Japan for a long time to come.
Her look works there and she's only becoming and more and more well known.
With her current status and the amount of work she's getting coupled with her public presence she'll have no problem getting citizenship in the future.
I can actually see her living there permanently.
But honestly, wouldn't she ever get a little bored? I mean… there is only SO long someone can keep interested in kawaii/cute and not want to change their appearance. I think in the future, she will probably live there but maybe she will head back to the states, depending.
I would like to see other foreign girls in the media there. I mean, I think if they allow kota then another foreign girl should be able to get the same treatment and jobs as kota. If they're good enough of course or is there some kind of limitation to this?
Well you say that but look at Tsubasa Masakawa, she turns 30 in October and she's still going strong.
I can see Dakota bringing out her own line of fashion or makeup in the future.
I pointed this out the other day. She isn't, not really. People on PULL keep her going just to poke fun out of. She's boring if anything, we're just keeping up with what she's doing. Nothing exciting, I mean maybe it is for her but it isn't for us. She goes on tv shows, talks about her persona and acts cute. No doubt in the future she'll get more jobs, probably overtake Rola's place and maybe even get married. I mean, isn't that what her nutjob mother wanted anyway? Some fame, money and for her to life a good life? Her sister, another story.
I think she is slowly fading off the internet. Gradually, aside from Ameblo and catering to her Japanese fans, that's about it.
Nah, she was homeschooled from what we know. Hence why she wanted to become a model, took the chance and has made a career for herself. Even if it's just within Japan.
I just think she keeps herself to herself. I always thought her personality was more… reserved than Kiki's. Dakota would fit in better with Japanese, not as loud and as annoying.
Who knows, I think we should all forget about Dakota if anything. I think she really does need to be forgotten, it's not a huge deal anymore. That's it, it's done with.
Indeed she is.
I think Dakota wanted to bring out her own fashion line before her modelling days anyway. She was always sketching, drawing those strange boney looking characters. Back when her and Kiki had that KND fashion line.
In a sense though, I know Dakota deserves this because yeah, she has become her own sort of success. Some will argue on that, yeah. But I do think… from the way she dresses herself, I can't really imagine her clothing line being… amazing. I just do not think it would be. Sorry.
I've seen design/fashion students work, some are brilliant. I know celebs bring out their own clothing lines all the time, half are shit anyway but it bugs me even with them, sure they've got the money to do so (they earned it, I get it) but people who are amateurs, good at what they do and still, no one either knows them or wants to know them. Blogging, out of the question. It's popular but EVERYONE is doing it. I always find that there is literally no room for newbie bloggers anymore, unless you're somehow… 'unique' as was Dakota with the doll thing back when it wasn't AS popular, then it's hard to get attention. Unless you're a dick and lulzy. It's harder.
So I always find celebs who just get their own lines, even down to Zoella who just makes videos sniffing yankee candles and then whines about her boyfriend, gets her own line of products. I just feel no a great deal of effort is truly made. They're just there because they're there and they can because they've got the money.
I know people will be like "they earned it and they can because–" yeah, you probably get my point.
Either way, I'm sure she'll make something of herself or leave Japan with a good $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
and now she wears them with her shorter haircringes
(i like her shorter hair btw but not with the extensions)
She could probably open her own little online stuff an sell shit like hotcakes because of her fanbase.
It would be so funny because Kaka's failed.
I agree wholeheartedly with this anon. Dakota's not lulzy anymore beyond her occasional tendency to over shoop, which is so ubiquitous that it's not a big deal.
Dako's modeling career will end eventually (especially since it hinges on the appearance of being young and kawaii) but I anticipate her doing something else afterwards since she's a pretty sharp kid. Her videography and portraiture is excellent, she can capitalize on that if not licensing her name for various products. I anticipate her marrying some b list jpop idol boy and fading quietly into obscurity.
then they'll have hafu babies, get them into modelling and be rich and happy
kiki will end up being like the patty and selma
Her stuff is cute by itself, but goddamn that girl can't coordinate an outfit for her life.
All her shit would be way overpriced. Like the time they tried to sell plastic jewellery for $100
OH, OH, BUT HERE'S MY HOPE, ANON:
After years and years have gone by, one of the two will pen a biography. Or maybe there'll be a documentary, I don't know. Kiki would be more likely too since she's so reckless, which is kind of a shame since she's the less interesting sister.
I think in many years to come, when I've got a stable career and happily settled down, I don't think I'll care much about Dakota or Kiki. They'll just be fragments of the past, plus a new fresh gaijin face or someone else will have long taken the spotlight.
Kota already has her own book? It's funny, how come Risa Nakamura only JUST got her own book? I was surprised, since her dad is some famous guy and she's modelled for far longer. I know Amo and a few others have their own books. Did Dakota's even sell that well? I've never seen anyone on instagram with it, I always seen Japanese models but not Dakota's. Usually the Japanese girls I've come across on instagram so shit mental for those style books.
It made me giggle when I found out Peachymilktea wants to buy Dakota's book. Apparently something about wanting to live up to her style and copy her…
As if we need more living dolls already…
You do know you can find most of Dakota's old clothes over on Rakuten (DreamV) and Taobao? I've spotted many of her clothes on those sites when I've had a nosy myself.
However, some are older collections and no longer available from certain lines e.g Lizlisa/Angelic pretty.
Exactly. That's precisely what I was thinking, her pieces are lovely but when put together they don't go. But if I am brutally honest, most of these models over there look tacky in the cutesy pastel clothes. They just do. When it's not photoshopped and blended in with all this filet/lightening it looks terrible in person. Like childrens clothes from the 80's or something.
I do think it would be overpriced too, it would be something with "angel baby" or "gorgeous baby doll" on a plastic glitter ring/necklace. Just that she has a bigger fanbase this time, more fools to fool and idiots to buy it.
However, maybe not. Maybe she'll surprise us? Maybe she might have good stuff and maybe, we'll even buy it? Who knows.

A book doesn't seem to be a big deal. Granted, Dakota does seem to be making a presence in panel shows. I'd say she wouldn't last long due to her being a one trick pony but Japan eats that shit up. Just take a look at Hayashi-sensei. It's been over 3 years I believe and he's still being treated like a god for saying "ima desho?"
My point about the books is pic related. Found this gem when cleaning my friend's room. It's a business English book and there's a small interview with her in the back. I was disappointed to find there's nothing really lulzy… Sorry if this is old news but I don't think Becky was too much in the spotlight outside of the otaku world and even she's had a few photobooks and such.

I found Dakota in an old episode of King of the Hill.

that actually kind of looks like her
Rila is actually gorgeous tho, I looked her up and I was like "geez she pretty!"
kota is yeah, cute, just cute. Nice cute but cute.
cute, but she's got a bit of a fat face. western makeup and (and especially contouring that slimmed her face) suited her face much better IMO. and as everyone always suggests, she should hit the gym; she comes off as extremely doughy-looking, but that's just my two cents. >>120858
this is hilariously accurate

Looks like she got some cheap and ugly extensions
hmm… i've definitely seen worse, but these aren't that great. they match the texture of her hair, which is to say they both look damaged. however, they color is slightly
off and also very flat. which is probably the biggest reason why they don't blend very well.
i hope to kami-sama that they are not glue ins or beads. her hair is already so delicate and thin, it would only get even more wrecked. i hope they are tape ins at the very least.
i can see why anons might think they look pretty, dakota always has looked better with long hair (at least in my opinion.) however, they don't blend very well and don't seem to be in great condition (also in my opinion.)
so does look
