Full Video Here. I forget if I posted this here, but I figured I'd post it again since I didn't see it on the last page of this thread. From Lucas' IG story in the summer I think. Just to keep with the theme of this thread being nothing but Lucas' videos where she makes an appearance, I guess.
Alexa (glitter_bat_) can be as much of a drama magnet as Marissa, but when someone said her nose was edited, she at least had the decency to say "Yea I edit my nose" and went on her story to show she had a nose bump, and explained further on twitter that she edits her photos. Mind you, she wasn't as gracious about it as she could've been (Idk maybe some people were harassing her about it, I didn't think to check) but she still admitted it. The thing I don't like about Marissa is that whenever she someone points out she edits, she cries about being bullied and posts crap like this to her story:
And on top of all this, she's taken to using video editing apps to keep the baby jaw consistent. Example 1, Example 2. Like, I maintain I don't agree with the harassment she receives RE: her makeup/aesthetic, and don't think rude comments regarding her editing is called for. But valid criticism pointing out the fact that she edits, and continues to deny it, is fair game imo.
She's been a fan since she was a teenager. If you go back into the archive on the VK fanpage, you can find fanart she did of Freddie Mercury, and at least two selfies of her with her Queen poster from 2014/2015. She hasn't talked about in the past two years, but I recall around that time she mentioned that she was so into the band and Freddie Mercury's story that she legit cried about him being dead. --- Recent stuff she's done in the past 3 months or w/e: I think the quality of her content is getting better. I like a lot of these looks, namely the Euphoria-inspried wavy hair look, and the dolly cupid tattoo look (altho I think she could've figured out the placement a bit better of the leftmost cherrub). But I still have an issue with the majority of these looks being foggy, desaturated, with a low exposure because a lot of details are lost due to the muddiness of the image. I know the glowy "lets smudge some gloss on the lens" look is trending, but I think it kind of matters what you're applying it to, and how MUCH of it you're applying it to. Like I think the Euphoria inspired look could've taken it back a notch but still maintain the overall aesthetic because it's a simple look. But the cherrub tattoo look lost like 50% of the details with the shimmer and glitter, which don't photograph well to begin with. Otherwise an alternative to this could be attaching extra pics of the work she did so you can see all the shimmery details. Also...I gotta mention I find it weird that she tagged the heart look as "euphoria" on tumblr because I never would've guessed that was a Euphoria inspired look. What makes it Euphoria-related exactly? The inclusion of rhinestones?
I actually really like this look, and think that the desaturated aesthetic is actually super appropriate for an image like this.
Part 3 of the documentary has Jeffree going into detail on the huge theft at one of his warehouses. Like, idk if he mentioned it on his youtube, but he mentioned in the documentary that in addition to all the Blueblood and concealer they stole, they also took a fuckton of his redbull. Like...why the fuck? Also watching him testing the samples with Shane was super informative considering how often you hear from other Influencers how they "slaved" over their palette to get the >best< formulas and swatches. Naturally Jeffree's been doing it longer than someone like James Charles, but it's just funny to watch him put together a colorstory in the same day they're testing all the eyeshadows lol.
I totally missed this last time I posted, so sorry for the late reply.
Idk who wrote this, but I’m assuming by “3 legal documents” they mean: social security card, birth certificate, and proof of residency (i.e. a piece of mail with your name on it). Since they’ve indicated she’s shown them her social security card (which is kinda a weird thing to do imo even when you consider she must’ve shown it with the numbers blocked out) and she presumably has a permanent address, the hitch is probably the birth certificate (which now that I’m looking, you can apparently order a copy online, but idk how valid those are and what you have to supply exactly to get one).
If any of this is true....it kind of makes me wonder if maybe Violet was starting to feel the heat from other people on twitter regarding her age. I saw at least 2 tweets prior to her posting the passport regarding how disgusting it was that “everyone was retweeting a minor“ with one naming her outright. Instead of waiting for the updated passport or state ID, she decided to jump the gun to prove the haters wrong with the expired passport.
She hasn’t posted since then so I’m guessing she’s either waiting for everyone to forget for a little bit or is actually still working on getting that new passport lol
Idk if anyone here has ever gotten a passport before, but I got mine last year and it cost me approximately $115. It’s super easy to get one (photo ID and birth certificate) but not everyone is going to dish out that amount of money unless they’re actually going to go outside the country (although it’s worth mentioning that the price may vary from state to state, and the passport expires after like 10 yrs).
From Violet’s passport it looks like she was 10 years old when it was issued to her, so it was probably something her parents got her when they were still together in preparation for a trip. Or something. I don’t really know because this whole situation is bizarre, because out of all the fucking things you could use to prove your age, you use an expired passport from when you were 10 years old????
What about a state ID? Learners permit? Drivers license? I think the requirements for a state ID are just proof of residency whereas a learners permit is that in addition to the state ID or student ID (which she also apparently doesn’t have for some reason????) You can get the drivers license after you get the permit if you pass the road test, but that requires having access to a car/guardian supervision/a fuckload of driving lessons if you have neither because although there’s some people who are naturally gifted at driving and understanding traffic laws, most people need guidance/immediate access to a car via a guardian or relative.
She might run into issues getting any of these things if she doesn’t have her birth certificate, which she’d have to go to the town hall that issued it and pay like $20-$30 bucks to get a copy of it (I had to get a physical/notarized copy of mine after I misplaced the original my parents gave me).
So like, my question is: if she’s living with her grandma, why is the only proof of ID she has access to an expired passport from when she was 10 years old?
I’m not quite sure since both of them have that clean/minimalist aesthetic. It’s also just a really common style that everyone and their mom likes. That said I wouldn’t mind seeing someone drawing comparisons in their videos to see how similar they are. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jo got cosmetic surgery since she’s been pretty upfront about wanting implants for a long time now. I’m not necessarily against her wanting them, but I sort of question it just because she has pretty nice tits to begin with. Like, why would you want to run the risk of all sorts of health complications from implants when you’re already blessed lol. RE: her vlog - I was always under the impression that Johanna was at home by herself most of the time since she apparently doesn’t have a job and her IG stories are pretty scant on a social life outside of PR events, but the video really hits the reality home in a pretty depressing way considering it’s titled “My Mornings”. She wakes up alone, takes Chico for a walk, has breakfast, does her skincare routine, and watches Modern Family. Really wouldn’t be surprised if she adopted Chico in part to keep her own mental health in check. If she reads this she’s probably going to shitpost about it in the next couple weeks like making that assessment based on her social media output doesn’t mean anything because everyone is entitled to a private life and no one has to upload their life online. That’s fair. She doesn’t post all that much even when she’s at PR events. But honestly, I’ve been following for a couple years, and all the stuff she posts makes her seem like a homebody. Like, I can’t imagine anyone with a healthy social life or satisfying hobbies/skills feeling guilty over playing video games in the middle of the day. Especially considering how little she actually posts and feels the >need< to be generating content constantly. If you feel guilty over having that sort of routine, you’re not doing what you feel you should be better spending your time on. But that’s just my 2 cents on the matter.
Did anyone else see her IG post about how she was gonna start working out more but was super bummed about buying sneakers because she thinks they’re ugly? I wasn’t able to save the post, but she posted a screenshot of some shoes she thought were “somewhat cute” which turned out to be 3 inch platform sneakers. Im fully supportive of her working out more, but I feel it’s kinda common sense that you don’t work out in platform sneakers 🤦♀️ ETA - Sorry, I’m a clown. These r the shoes I was talking about. https://www.instagram.com/p/B2m7Nnthot2/?igshid=q1vua82vr219 In my defense, the screenshot she posted in her story was a side view that made the sole look more blocky and more for aesthetic than for something to seriously work out in. But these are more like Fila sneakers (which a sales rep told me you >can< work out in).
No problem. I checked out her Facebook and found some more semi-candids in her Mobile folder. The last one is honestly what I'd expect her natural face shape to be, but Idk if the filter being used there is altering anything. I should probably mention that I don't dislike Marissa, or think she's a bad person. I actually think she's really sweet. I'm just disappointed with her lack of transparency when it comes to her editing. I also found these elsewhere:
Idk where the first one is from, but the last 2 are from 2012. Marissa actually posted an image from this time herself on IG (I actually posted it in my last post at the bottom).
Ah, yeah, that kind of falls in line with her sucking in her cheeks for certain pictures (both her own and those not taken by her).
I kind of wish Johanna would create a lookbook with links to all the stuff she wears. Her style has gotten better over the years, and I think she could do a good job showcasing it if she put some effort into it.
I don't disagree, however in this case I feel the video is suspect just because it's 3-4 months old and oddly degraded. If you were trying to prove her point about your own face, wouldn't you upload something more current? I think we touched up on this a year or two ago, how it seems Jo has started editing her jawline in her makeup tutorials that result in jaw wobble and weirdly sharp jaw corners: The thing all of these videos have in common is that the same side of the jaw is affected. And because it's the front camera on the iPhone, that means the image is flipped. So the side of her face she's editing is the left side of her jaw (which would be our right facing her); the side of her face she tends to hide/edit the most. I'm mainly using videos she's posted to her IG story in the past specifically because most people don't expect someone to edit their jaw in a 3 second boomerang video, and also because I can't be bothered to go through her Q&A videos + makeup tutorials again just to get a specific reference point on where jaw wobble occurs. What I will do is post this gif again: Someone I talked to about video editing (and specifically Johanna) was that she was probably using Motion Tracking in After Effects to liquify the parts of her face she wants edited. They showed me this video where a guy demos liquifying his biceps, but I also found this video for liquifying the face that I think applies more to what we're talking about here. I don't use the software myself, but it appears simple enough that even a rudimentary understanding of the tool would be enough to alter something (sorry if I've talked about this before btw my memory is shit). Btw, Jo is still lurking here. She posted this a couple days ago:
So Current Mood Clothing reposted Vic a week ago, and people weren't happy about it. Comments section went to shit in short order, and resulted in Vic posting a long video on IG story to clarify she edits her jaw and body (the latter of which I thought she was honest about, but someone said she lied about that recently in another IG story; can't say for certain). Like, I really don't know what to say about it, because while I agree with the core argument that pics like Victoria's are harmful, I don't know if I agree with publicly shaming/engaging with someone who's upfront about their editing. But also, because a lot of this stuff is public, I have a hard time saying no one should say anything about it. It also gets into weird territory in this case because it seems like most of Victoria's stans hear what they want to hear instead of what's actually being said. Example:
Most people are just pointing out the hypocrisy of her doing the We Are Living Cute campaign because it was body positive and Vic edits the crap out of her pictures. Her fans are really something else though. This person compared people being mislead by an edited photo to fucking Columbine:
More clownery under the spoiler (in case this is OT) More pics from photoshoots Vic did. Apologies if there's any repeats:
