I'm also quite new to this thread. And here's my story *dramatic sound effect from Law&Order: Special Victims Unit*
I used to follow, like her and kinda admire her looks during her ulzzang phase. I wasn't that aware of Korean beauty ideals at that time, so I was't like "HOMAIGOSH DAT V-LINE SO PURRRFECT!!11!" but I found her really cute. I'm actually quite naive, so I never noticed how obviously she had too much shitty PS. I'm ashamed to tell I thought of her as "naturally pretty"... but now I gag at every picture from the side with her wobbly jaw... yikes. Thanks to PULL, I wasn't only able to know the truth about her looks. But I spent some time here to scroll through the beginning of her "tumblr unicorn"-phase (took me quite some time to find her first life hacks-video lol). Because I REALLY needed to know how that had happened. I wasn't subbed to her for a long time because of her boring content, but when I came back... Holy F*CK! Her main channel is now like every youtube/tumblr/internet cancer COMBINED! It shocked me how much of a sell-out she became because I honestly couldn't believe it... I really wondered what had happened to that cute and "sincere" girl. But when I read you guys were talking about her fake giveaways... F*CK. It suddenly dawned on me. When she slowly started those giveaways, I remember I took part in one. It was only on her blog though, I think. I only saw a handful of comments on her blog (one of the "activities" that'd get you more chances to win) and I didn't need to use Facebook, so I figured why not? It was about some (expensive?) lashes, you could decide between two different sets and I liked both. And wanted to experiment with fake lashes lol. Long story short, I read her whole entry and fell for one of her tricks... She said you'd get an email from like the provider of the blog or something? Some automatic email, but they can OFTEN be fake emails with a virus or something. I don't remember her exact words, but she made sure to emphasize it A LOT. And she made it sound like her fans told her that to prevent others from responding to those "fake emails". I thought it strange how many times she repeated that fact, but assumed it must be a real problem. And that if I'd win, I should never ever answer those emails because she said she'll announce the winners on her blog. It was clear she only wanted us to react IFFFFF she does. Guess what happened. Right. Nottin'
I was disappointed but idk, I just assumed not enough people participated so she decided to cancel it... But now I think she did it on purpose. I WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY WON BECAUSE I GOT THOSE EMAILS GOD DAMMIT!
I didn't know Wengie was such a snake... No wonder she changed so much, went from boring to absolutely hollow... It's a shame she is SO GODDAMN TREND-DRIVEN. I can honestly of the life of me NOT understand that kinda mentality. How f*cked up must she be...?
TL;DR: I'm not that sour about not winning her fake giveaway lol but I'm shocked of her snaky-ness and disgusting character. 'Nuff said
It just says she uploaded that picture 2011 when she was "16 years old"... yeah right
Edit: When the host interviewed her and her picture when she was "16" was shown, Dakota told him how she didn't have enough money to buy proper food when she first came to Japan as a "16 year-old". And felt grateful when she could only buy one (loaf of?) bread. She had to explain her weird food choices so that the show could "jokingly" refer to her image being different from the former "Real Barbie"-stuff. Edit2: I feel weird using my Japanese "skills" for that... And I feel weird for constantly having to put everything into these "marks"
^THIS. I'm also aware of my wrinkles caused by too much concealer because honestly, my dark af eye circles leave me with a complex lol. I'd rather scare people not THAT much than being less obvious about it. But Dakota could really profit from learning from a professional make up artist. Would be a good investment for a tarento, and would've been a good one for a MODEL GOD DAMMIT
I was talking about her usage of concealer because I can't imagine she'd already age so fast, even though she is of course older than she admits (because that's what kawaii desu Snowflakes do ) And didn't she already lose her job at two different model agencies? She's only a talento now, right?
Is nobody going to state the obvious...? WHY IS SHE TOO LAZY TO PUT THE LIGHT AF FOUNDATION ONTO HER FOREHEAD. Bothers me more than the eye wrinkles TBH because sometimes you have to decide if you wanna look less sleep deprived or more natural lol. But I don't wanna know what them wrinkles look like when she's actually smiling
Three consecutive evenings later I finally finished catching up on one of the best threads ever. Hearing that hentai song frightens me more than the alien shoops I've seem to gotten used to lol. Wonder how I'll see my surroundings tomorrow, hope I don't frown upon anti dorito chins.
