      Hello everyone,   As promised, we're working on some changes to improve the forum and community! So far, here are the recent changes: Negative reputation has been disabled. Upvoting remains intact. This is a trial run to deal with whiteknights brigading certain topics and salty users mass-downvoting users they disagree with. Some text formatting options have been removed. Some users like to format their posts in ways that make them harder to read or downright obnoxious. (Light colors, tiny fonts, etc), so this helps make threads more readable. If you find yourself needing post formatting because you're making a new thread, please contact a mod and we will make it happen. New threads have to be approved anyway, so you're not going to have to start out with an ugly thread. Text formatting remains available to all users who have supported us via Patreon.No more threads on "Online Personalities". We will NOT lock or remove old threads, but we won't approve new threads about people who don't have any history of drama or controversies. Some threads will be moved to the snowflake sections if applicable. Read the new topic guidelines before you make a new thread.Here are our works in progress: New categories will be added. "Little Snowflakes" is too broad of a spectrum, so we're going to sort our flakes into a few sub-sections to keep things organized. We will also make more use of tags for those flakes who transcend categories. This will also allow us to appoint moderators to specific categories or snowflakes. New moderators will be onboarded soon.

  1. Architect added a post in a topic Kimu Cosplayer - キム   

    She's one example of how successful you can be when you focus more on how to climb the social ladder instead of focusing more on the fundamentals of cosplay, like makeup, craft & construction and being accurate to the character you're cosplaying. For reference, a fellow admin of hers has over 188k following in IG despite being subpar as a cosplayer solely because she does the same thing as Kimu does, attaching herself to popular cosplayers and photographers in exchange for her promoting them in the cosplay curation pages she admins for. She also makes cosplay pages off pictures shared by Chinese cosplayers off Weibo and then sends them an offer of administrating said pages for free if they're willing to associate with that person. If they don't comply, it does not matter, since she is still in control of that Facebook page and she can pretty much manipulate the posts using their content to her favor.
    In general, I'm not a fan of cosplay curation pages, since a lot of them have strayed past their initial purpose of sifting through thousands of cosplays and picking the best to being a PR mill for mediocre cosplayers like Kimu. If there's something that broke the naivete I had about how cosplayers were magical and amazing, it's people like Kimu and her ilk, because they feel like people who prey on naive fans for the sake of stoking their own egos.

    Now I'm starting to have doubts. Keemstar is right in this situation, the fact that Heidy omitted the polyamory part is very questionable. Had she been open about it, not a lot of people would've seen her as a saint, but at least she was honest about it, now it casts doubt on her statement and it just shows that she might not be as blameless as she initially painted herself out to be.

  3. Architect added a post in a topic Pewdiepie   

    As a guy who follows him, I stopped halfway this video because he clearly did not bother to get into it. It's clear as fuck that he pretty much just cashed in on the debacle for views and nothing else. When he goes Poppy Harlow/Gloria Borger I usually see it as him dumbing down the news for his underage followers, but it's clear that he didn't really bother trying here since I guess makeup isn't his jam.
    Hell, Pyrocynical covered this drama better than he did, and was much more funnier doing so too.

    I absolutely love how his own subreddit is now a hub for people posting stuff against him
    How the turn tables

    Liked this post solely because he ripped off my boy Pyrocynical

  6. Architect added a post in a topic Kimu Cosplayer - キム   

    That pic is the reason why she badly needed those pics from that one SG photog, since it's pretty much the only time where she gets to shoot with a photog that actually makes her look better than how she does iRL, otherwise she has to rely on her shitty ass selfies, or bland photogs from her home country. She learned a lot from how well-received her Nero set was when she shot with one of Taiwan's best cosplay photographers and she was hoping to do the same thing here. What bothered me during that situation was that every coser from SG(the good ones, at least) donated to that photog so he can buy a new HDD out of gratitude, whereas she didn't.
     
    As for the receipt for chickennugget's claim to Kimu's deleted post during that situation, here it is:

     

    She's well-networked. Being an admin for a cosplay curation page called Sayapi Hiwatari and posting her own sets and selfies fooled people into thinking that she must be a big time cosplayer since the page is well known for only sharing the best cosplayers all around the world. She was able to build herself up through that lie.

  7. Architect added a post in a topic Hana Dinh / Hana Bunny Cosplay / hana.bunny_bunny   

    Oh no, I sorely disagree. Her photoshop is so unrealistic to the point that it's up there with Misa Chiang. Her and Misa actually serve as reference on how NOT to photoshop in /cgl/ threads, because they end up looking so different from how they actually look in real life.
    I honestly believe that her admission that she photoshops is done so to stave off the criticism that she's one of the cosplayers who have do it the most. A defense like this isn't the first time, since Misa has also done something similar and as I've mentioned on the Misa thread, she's done a master class of normalizing photoshop by sharing Photoshop guides for cosplay. I honestly don't think it's a coincidence that she's started posting statuses about her photoshopping right after this thread was made.

    Best way at this point is to have the state muscle in on this, because she doesn't see anything wrong with it and her mother seems to be encouraging it.
    I'm not a fan of the state or federal interference but man, what else can people really do other than watch her die?

    To be fair, people kinda realized that she probably got some sort of high from this shit. Had Belle been smart enough to not just respond to her, she wouldn't have had the ammunition to make such a post.

  10. Architect added a post in a topic Mariah Mallad / Momokun Cosplay   

    She literally had to make a brand new IG to cleanse herself of anything that would associate Momokun to her.

    The quality of this looks like shit you'd see circa 2007. Who in their right mind thought it was a good idea posting that at this day and age?

    The latest developments pretty much turned her from hero to zero. A lot of people who added her for exposing the whole petty girls group chat thing pretty much unfriended her the moment she realized how she was very racist and bigoted.

    Just read about that.

    I never expected a heel faced turn such as that. She's totally revamped her IG and erased all traces of her association with Momokun and not only that she's not just backing up Susu, she also has a story featuring them on a Jacuzzi too. Seeing that was rather unreal, but rather in a pleasant way.

    The only reason why that pic isn't counted against Momokun is because the girl she's touching said it was consensual, even if her reaction in the picture says otherwise.
    That said, her IG is SabrinaNicholeBunny, it's been down since Momokun's controversy but she has an alt somewhere.
    Edit: Nvm, found it, this is her main one now. She's dissassociated from Momokun completely on this one.

    Alf has mentioned before on an inquiry that the only reason why he works with her is because she pays really well. It does align with Momokun's strategy with people in general where her solution to gaining influence is by throwing money at people.
