Previous thread: >>237156
Last thread maxed out.
Dako-chin let herself get fat, bald and sallow and continues to upload hilariously unrealistic, heavily edited selfies to her Instagram, but hasn't been obviously buying views/followers ever since aomw farmers started checking her shit with Socialblade. Dako hasn't booked a decent quality job in over a year now, opting instead to do app game ads and web shows as a novelty guest. Pic related is from the most legit job she's had in ages, a commercial for a candy that she probably got by technicality for still
being inexplicably signed to Bravo models. It was also discovered that she's a direct booking client, means her potential employers only have her hilariously inaccurate Bravo profile measurements and her photoshopped portfolio to go by if they want to hire her. Anons continue to speculate and wonder how she can afford a 2LDR in Shibuya and how she keeps her visa&contract despite hardly working and getting shit tier token gaijin gigs.

Crossposting from the last thread since I get the feeling the discussion wasn't over yet.
Dakota got a Tonymoly x Pokémon eye palette from a friend in South Korea, then Cathy sent her the same palette along with a skin serum, an anti wrinkle serum (kek), and an eczema cream.
iirc Tonymoly isn't vegan? It's hilarious because a couple of years ago, kaka was pontificating about how hardcore vegans reject jobs if these were against their principles kek
I know they're fake vegans but still.
You're my hero haha. She actually looks so fat. My sides>>258045
I truly don't understand why her hair is this bad. I actually feel sorry for her in this regard. :( Also, this may have been mentioned in the previous thread, but that eyeshadow palette is a couple of months old. And I'm also pretty sure Tonymoly isn't vegan and tests on animals.
Is that really her hair or did OP shop it??

Is she intentionally squishing the top of her head ? She already looks bald as it is. Why not add volume rather then shrink the areas with hair. >>258126
Holy fuck ! That's spooky looking …
Barbie elf goddesu with no hair.
Why did she play herself like this? Why didn't she get extensions, or even wear a wig? If someone else did her hair, they must have hated her to allow this to happen.

The dress won't fit on her waist because she's too fat for it, see the pouch under the waistline. It only fits up her stomach like pic related.>>258272
He's the only person she ever goes out with, takes pics of her and who buys her dinners.
not here to ass-kiss kooter, but it is actually ok to use products meant for "mature" skin when you are still young. Starting a routine in your early 20's is ideal. The products she has look super cheap though.
She needs to get some Olay Regenerist. Affordable and does an ok enough job.

Speculations are there for a reason. Being a model isn't that great, it's been proven that it doesn't pay that much especially if you're not a high-end one.
It just doesn't make sense that :
- Kota is getting less and less gigs and still can live in a flat in Tokyo instead of those dormitories models are crammed in
- She's definitely gotten fat(ter) and doesn't seem anxious at being dropped, otherwise she'd haul her ass to the gym like any other model
When you look at it, it makes the most sense that she's getting money from somewhere besides her modeling jobs. It could be her family supporting her like Taylor's did but we know they aren't that loaded. She could have a husband/sugar daddy on the side but then how didn't she get dropped by Bravo after causing problems in Korea, being nasty on a comedy show and getting fatter and balder by the day ?
Even her japanese fanbase is getting sick of her, so the whole real barbie girl stick is over now. Honestly it makes the most sense that her manager is pulling some strings to keep her around and what for if it wasn't for shagging her ?
Popteen just uploaded "new" videos with Kota in them.
Here's the link to the other one:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPHSkw3UgL4
In the second vid, did she miss her cue when she was supposed to say "nine"?

It's from 2015, back when she was still actually with Popteen. She's just kind of… awkwardly there.
And since when is she so busty? It must be stuffing to try to offset her lack of a waist.

Sugoi indeed, Dakota. This gif is a blessing to the farm.
It's amazing how cute and small the other girl looks in comparison. Only a couple of inches shorter yet half the size of dacote.
>>258539>sneezing into your hand
Glad to know I wasn't the only one bothered by that.>>258657
I think this theory would be more plausible if she weren't listed as a model. But maybe– I don't know how these companies work and I won't pretend to.
That still doesn't explain why she's still listed as a model and why they are lying about her.
I'm also certain that she hasn't even finished high school which would mean she doesn't qualify for that type of job. ( though I read sugar daddies sometimes hire their sugar babies as personal assistants/ receptionist. So she could personally work for Hiroshi but not the company )
They are a different kind of model than even a commercial model in the west. A lot of Popteen models start off as Dokusha models (literally reader models) girls who are teenagers and might read the magazines themselves (It's also the reason that most of those types of magazines have exclusively Japanese models) . They are supposed to look cute - not beautiful- and make the popular fashion look good. They are more relatable as opposed to aspirational.
But Koots missed the mark because she wasn't relatable and stopped seeming aspirational really fast.
The only reason she got Popteen anyway was because of Candydoll and her connection at the time to Tsubasa.
>tl;dr- Different kinds of models have different standards and Koots manages to meet none of them.

Nope because they thought their readers would like her. She was presented like a literal doll in her intro. They were riding the Candydoll wave.
They thought she would be aspirational. They even super-shooped her her in the beginning. Pic related.
Yeah, I'm sure the magazine that's outlining her shooped pictures like some obsessed waifufag couldn't possibly have fudged the numbers and are being completely truthful in saying that she weighs 88 pounds.
You're repulsed by people criticizing a model about her weight but not the blatant objectification and exploitative nature of that zine spread?
Dude she gained about 25lbs while modeling in Japan. She screwed herself into a hole by lying about her weight and measurements to be begin with (you were never 5'4" and 88lbs Koots) but then she went from being about 100lbs when she got there to about 125lbs now. No that isn't in any way fat for a regular person but for a model in Japan, it's big.>>258767>And yes men would do a fucking lot for their favorite piece of candy
Too true. Even happens in high fashion with genuinely quality girls.

Well Japanese people are literally calling her fat so…
Take it up with them.
this comment actually triggered
It's been said like a dozen times in this thread that Kooter is fat for a model and she is fat by Japan's standards. I don't know how many times people have to clarify this until people stop whiteknighting her.

She's also fat and kinda ugly, she only looks pretty with filters, edition and makeup
You judge someone's weight solely off of their face.
Well, I can tell Tooter's is actually fat by that bulging Fupa in her pants and, no anon,that isn't because she happy to see you.

She's actually thinner than Kota and seems to exercise. But she's not the real deal. Her face is cute but looks different irl. Although I can see why Popteen fired Kota's ass.

She is definitely smaller than Koots and she is super popular.
Honestly, it's good. Very upper level conversational with a good accent and intonation. Her grammar and vocab are not great but because of her accent, she can pass for fluent. Very natural sounding for a foreigner. A good ear I guess.
She learned on the job in Japan. Before she came she hadn't studied much. It only got really good when she started working at Popteen.
Nope. just her photoshop and editinghttp://girlschannel.net/topics/552097/
Here's the topic if you wanna peruse.
She lies about everything. I mean it seems almost pathological. Why did she lie about how she learned Japanese 3 or 4 times differently each time? Why did she lie about wearing child's clothing? Why did she lie about about growing up in Chicago when she moved when she was 3? Why did she lie about feeding foxes and owls potato chips in the deep wilds of suburban Florida?
I mean she just does.
Rich coming from Japanese girls considering pretty much all of them use meitu on every one of their selfies.
I was always under the impression that that's all that Taylor used too. Her edits didn't seem like Photoshop, just the automatic enhancements like eye enlarging/jaw thinning/skin smoothing that meitu does. Could be wrong though.
Yeah. You should see the threads there about Nicorun. Hint: very not complimentary.
With Tay, I don't know. Maybe its ok for them but not for famous people. I really don't know their mindset.
They just uploaded another one.
You can only really spot Kota in the background in this one and you can see them actually cut her part out in the end when everyone is taking turns talking into the megaphone.
File: 1488203761323.png (624.71 KB, 852x439, sad koots.png)
she was kind of in the end, but its understandable why they would cut her out, she looks so sad, and not really amused to be there at all. She was also the only one wearing a suuper baggy shirt which was really weird. This is what convinces me that she didnt really make a lot of friends and that some of them were prolly bullying her or being catty towards her because she always looks so down in popteen vids, and always like an outcast.
File: 1488206122564.png (66.14 KB, 640x676, IMG_4347.PNG)
Well, people aren't going to be interested in you if all you do is sit by yourself and ignore everyone.
Looks like her Twitter and Insta are finally reflecting her ~fame and popularity~, lol.
LMFAO. Damn she's losing on all accounts.
She's either really fucking lazy to the point she can't even keep her social medias running properly, or she's given up and its getting closer to her returning home.
Barely any gigs, all social media platforms losing followers and weight gain … 2017 is just not Tooter's year.
Shes only like 3rd polish? She has a hafu parent and a japanese parent. So she is more Japanese than she is hafu/polish.
Unlike for e.g Yumi Lambert who is more white and a 3rd Japanese with a white parent and a hafu parent

what exactly is Popteen and Fits?
I don't understand Japanese; what's going on in these videos exactly?
Popteen is a teen fashion magazine that was(and is) pretty much a gyaru staple. Fits is type of candy sold by the manufacture Lottes.
That video was actually an event that Popteen models did with their readers. A lot of the girls in the video are fans of magazine and models, which in retrospect makes it even more obnoxious that Koots was acting like a sour bitch.
She missed so many verbal cues in these videos that I wouldn't be surprised that she had no idea what she was showing up for.
She had no clue what was going on during each of these children's PhysEd class activities either. Probably more so because she was freaking homeschooled.
I think they lazily cut her out because she's not part of Popteen but they're releasing old videos only now.
File: 1488221497258.gif (997.99 KB, 500x240, dakota salt.gif)

At her height, she could be 120-125. According to her height, B/W/H, and other measurements from the last time Popteen printed them, not to mention just looking at candids of her, 54-56kg would be believable. Pic related.
That actually made me feel really bad. She looks like the typical socially stunted outcast in class. I bet she must have felt very embarassed, she doesn't seem to understand what's going on half the time.
That said, she could have put a bit more effort and good energy, at least in smiling more. Her posture is terribly introverted in these, she looks miserable. It's her job to look good so she could've at least pretended, no wonder she got fired.

I noticed that too. I wonder what she said or if she maybe complained thinking it would be funny to.
Honestly Dakota probably did get picked apart by the other girls, but who wouldn't nickpick her. She's given special treatment,doesn't meet standards and is a miserable bitch in every video. Even popteen lied for her just like Bravo. I'd be pretty annoyed if someone came in and half assed everything and didn't have to work hard to maintain their weight/looks, and got treated better then most and labeled "real barbie" when looking like a slab of ham.

Another picture from the fits event.
File: 1488235812757.jpg (16.79 KB, 480x360, 0.jpg)
in these videos she seems to have realized just how much her "star power" is fading. that or she was already aware and it's being made all the more clear. dakota got so much attention on the news. she was showered with interviews and extreme praise. it was all about her, she was a sensation in pop culture for just a bit. for an extreme narcissist who grew up in an overbearing household, it was heaven.
and now time has passed. people got bored. she was revealed to not look much like her "doll" self she was advertising. for awhile, she rode the wave. but the attention continued to fade, and fade, and fade.
watching how all the other girls are having fun, wearing cute flattering clothes, having the cameras focused on them far more than her, it must have stung.
and now, it seems, after trying her best with a new photoshopped 'look', she is giving up. she doesn't care anymore. she looks hollow inside, honestly. like she's withering away just like her care toward being a famous model in japan.

Her 21st. This post says her birthday was on the 19th, but that 3 friends threw her a surprise birthday party almost a week later. But she's the only one in the pic? Also when it was still recent someone posted pics some jvloggers took on a set that was extremely similar.

Idk besides the original commercial and the videos with the token hot characters, the ones with Dakota in them got the most views. I know that's only because of us haturz but maybe a gum company dgaf as long as it rakes in views.
tbh i have been thinking like >"oh shes not THAT fat now, anons are just being harsh">see this>"oh holy shit… she looks fucking HUGE"
jfc.. she must give good head to keep getting the couple jobs that she does and stay in japan
The one with Dakota front and center doesn't have that many more views than most of the other videos though.
The one sitting in the 4th most watched is clearly because of Naomi and not Dakota. I get that Naomi isn't attractive, she's huge, but she's a popular comedian right now. Let's be real. She's the one pulling in the views, not a washed up nobody like Dakota.
why can't companies tell hiroshi to shove it though…? I don't get it. Maybe I'm just not thinking Japanese, but if I'm using an agency for models for my products and they give me koots, I'd be pretty pissed.
I understand the "direct booking" thing, but for how long can everyone be fooled by her same old shooped photos?
It's all really complicated tbh. But this is my interpretation.
As crazy as it sounds to us, Koots is still riding her rep as a living doll and Bravo is good for pushing that narrative aggressively. She's not blacklisted because Bravo, the agency could get pissed and not hire out their other models (and they have a big name pool of talent in their direct booking section). But more than that, it would also be considered very rude to blacklist her, especially since Koots is a foreigner. As a foreign model, her agency and not her is held responsible for her mistakes and if Bravo isn't stepping up and taking responsibility, no one is necessarily going to call them on it for fear of disrupting the wa. And that's a big piece of it. If she were Japanese, Dakota would have been blacklisted, but because she's gaijin people don't call her on her bullshit and give her a lot more passes than she deserves.
way tl;dr- Bravo counts on Japanese professional politeness to keep getting Dakota jobs. Dakota accidentally gaijin smashes her way through the JP model/entertainment industry.
>>260107>It's just a theory tbh.
Oh thank you for answering.
>t's pretty obvious someone at the agency is pulling strings for her.
I think it's not a bad theory but, I'm going to compare her situation with Taylor's:
Taylor is still listed as a model and has an entertainment visa but she rarely works as a model, does this mean someone in her agency is pulling the strings for her so she can stay in Japan? mmmh, I think sometimes the agency simply likes them and believes in them, even if they aren't popular all the time, if they get some good jobs every once in a while, it's better and cheaper for them and potential costumers to have them around than to pay airplane tickets, make the arrangements etc.
Also, take into consideration that Dakota speaks Japanese, this helps her a lot, Japanese people enjoy to see foreigners that speak the language more than you think, she has been on TV shows many times, fashion shows, magazines etc.
Not saying someone's not helping, she was underage when she first arrived, so she probably had a very special contract and treatment (they paid the rent, taxis, etc), and maybe her agency still pays a part of her expenses. It depens on your contract.
Makes sense, anon.
they'd rather avoid confrontation and just put up with her, lest they damage their relationship with bravo in the future, or anyone else because who wants to be seen as potentially difficult…
Apologies in advance for the essay:
>Taylor is still listed as a model and has an entertainment visa but she rarely works as a model, does this mean someone in her agency is pulling the strings for her so she can stay in Japan?
Taylor gets away with it, because her agency isn't footing her bills.If they were she would either be working a lot more or out on her ass.
> I think sometimes the agency simply likes them and believes in them, even if they aren't popular all the time, if they get some good jobs every once in a while
No it doesn't work like that. Because if Koots isn't working regularly she is costing Bravo money. Maybe, she is like Taylor and she is being provided for by someone then bravo could keep her without worrying about the financial aspect. But if she's not, her agency is footing the bill.
>Also, take into consideration that Dakota speaks Japanese, this helps her a lot, Japanese people enjoy to see foreigners that speak the language more than you think, she has been on TV shows many times, fashion shows, magazines etc.
Dakota's Japanese is not amazing. Moreover, she not the only white model to speak Japanese and not even the best. She got on TV because someone got her on TV.
>she was underage when she first arrived, so she probably had a very special contract and treatment
Most models are underage. You know that right? Do you think they all get super special sweetheart contracts. That's rich. Tell that to the 15 year olds on shitty 3 month contracts at Bravo hustling to make money to send back to their families in Russia and Eastern Europe.
Sorry for the tone anon, but this has been talked around ad nauseum. We can't know for sure but if you have any knowledge of the way the industry works, it's a more than reasonable guess.
Agreed. I think Taylor's agency considers YouTube to be an understated or less significant form of tarento. She's earning money through revenue, sometimes promotes products (iherb for example), and has a strong social media presence, so her lack of bookings can be set aside.
Dakota's Youtube has flatlined and there's no growth potential. She has Instagram, which is usually really beneficial for models, but she doesn't know how to use it to promote herself or make companies want to work with her. Also, when you start accepting low quality jobs it really lowers the bar for future bookings. That's why a lot of models who pose for major things like Vogue are unpaid. They do it to help their career in hopes they get better paying jobs. This girl gets paid peanuts to do low level shit.
>>260119>Not saying someone's not helping, she was underage when she first arrived, so she probably had a very special contract and treatment (they paid the rent, taxis, etc), and maybe her agency still pays a part of her expenses. It depens on your contract.
I've been modelling since I was 15 years old. You don't get a special treatment just because you're underage. They don't paid for your expenses. Well, they do. But they just lend you the money, you have to pay back with your earns. You're mostly in debt. My parents had to send me money 24/7 and most designers pay you with clothes, not real money. You also share flat with 4 or 5 more girls. Dakota has been living alone since the first time she step a foot in Japan. She receives a special treatment because she was an internet sensation and might be fucking someone from Bravo. Look at Kendall, Gigi, Bella… they also receive a special treatment because who they are, due to their surnames. They don't have to go to castings and they're in all shows. All the models I know that have worked with them are hella mad because of the treatment they receive, if they cancel a show the night before there's no problem. But if I cancel a show, I'm out and my career ends. This is why Popteen models didn't like Dakota. If some of them gain 5 kg they'll tell them to follow a liquid diet so they'll lose weight (my former flatmate was told that) If Dakota gains 5kg, they just let her cover her stomach with a towel.
Sage for OT
…is the allure of "real life Barbie" really strong enough to warrant all this? Even after Japanese people have clearly demonstrated they can see the difference between her real face and shoops?
This is why I wonder if there's something else… Because aside from her internet Barbie phase, she's no one?
Your experience as a model =/= other models. Dakota was hired because she was an internet sensation, she already was someone
, it wasn't the typical girl who sent her photos to her agency and worked hard to become a good model, she was already popular, it's a waste of time to ask why? Why Dakota if there're more beautiful models?
it just happened and still happens, many successful models aren't pretty or special AT ALL (imo), but they are there…
Of course, is up to you if you want to push the other theory, I prefer to be skeptical.
I meant that Bravo might be keeping an interested eye on Taylor. I worded it poorly so thank you for catching what I meant anon! >>260281
You're very right, employing models wih great social media following is extra advertising and publicity for whoever they're modelling for.
In a way, Dakooter did pioneer in using social media to get ahead in another career path but she didn't keep up with it. Taylor took an established career and changed it to what she does now. Whereas I know many will disgaree, I do think Taylor does work on her channel and her trying out new things shows an active interest in envolving herself within the platforms she uses.
Even if Dakooter would revert to what made her popular back in 2012, she would never reach the same level of popularity. Dakooter, much like her sister, is stuck in her era of popularity. Whereas I have no sympathy towards Kiki and limited sympathy towards Kooter, I will say Kooter did work a lot harder then her sister.
No agency on earth is gonna keep a model for 5 years because she had 1 year of internet fame. Especially when she looks nothing like the pics that got her famous, she gained 15+ pounds, is losing hair and aging like milk, is rude and lazy and introverted. Saying she's still there because she was
a Tumblr sensation or a YouTube viral sensation doesn't explain anything, because she hasn't been either of those things for 3-4 years now. She should have been dropped by now.

Anon, Taylor still has a visa and she barely works as a model… is she fucking with someone from her agency? I don't think so.
About the weight and height, she's a tarento not a runnaway/ high fashion model.

Found this few days ago too lol
Anon get your head out of your ass, it's been explained before, read the goddamn thread.
Taylor has a wealthier fam, she's a legit model and was modeling well before Kota, she's way more professionnal (works out, know how to properly model) when Dakota just recently learned how to smile in shoots and can't even walk a catwalk properly. She's at least thin a head full of hair, and puts out much more videos and has more views than Kota.
How tf do you compare a legit model who's way more determined and a chubby talent with a nasty personnality ?
At least Taylor is a real youtuber and gets views. Plus her following is real, unlike Kota's and she makes decent content. I can see Taylor as a 'tarento', it's a pity she doesn't speak Japanese because I'm sure she would get t.v gigs.
The moment Dakota stopped working on her channel and abandoned herself she dug her own grave.

But I agree the agency not having to pay for anything for Taylor is probably the biggest reason that they keep her. After that it is her social media presence, which gives the agency free exposure and which they get a cut of her youtube money and jobs that she does.
Without money or youtube/insta/etc she wouldn't still be signed, I think.
One anon commented about how agencies loan money on models and how it puts them in debt more then they even earn.
Is Dakota severely in debt to Bravo then ?? I highly doubt Hiroshi is paying for her apartment while also risking his reputation to keep her signed. It doesn't seem impossible that he'd just get her a signed loan under the agency rather then pay out of pocket for it. In my honest opinion she's to plain and frankly ugly to be that spoiled for a sugar baby/prostitute …. He's probably only helping her stay in the agency and nothing else really. >>260718
Taylor's agency not to long ago featured her on their insta, so I'd say not having to loan to Taylor plus gaining some recognition from her social media is why they keep her. Plus she actually looks like her pictures and has a good modelling portfolio with a wide range of variety. Kota doesn't have variety nor does she look like her pictures as well as probably cost the company more then they make off of her.
I suppose this could be true to some extent, but fashion is probably one of the only industries in Japan in which there are more women, who make a majority of the decisions concerning casting, so I'm not sure that the fuck-your-way-to-the-top method would really work. But it should be accepted that as a foreign model you mostly likely won't be getting many high fashion jobs as most of them are either given to Japanese girls or to models that they specifically fly in for a shoot or event.>>260768
It depends purely on the agency and the model. But Japan is fairly strict about visas, so I would imagine they aren't very long. The question is whether they'll agree to renew it.
Fucking your way to the top works in any language as long as the one on top wants to fuck you. Dakota didn't speak Japanese when she got there, and she didn't start using it publicly herself until 3 years later. She learned it via immersion and the fact that Hiroshi is a native speaker and
fluent in English. Her intonation and flow are incredible, but her grammar and keigo have gaping holes in them. So, she had a lot of speaking/listening practice but probably only about the same stuff over and over like small talk or things related to her jobs. It makes more sense that Hiroshi has been supporting her for the last ~3 years as well as helping her with Japanese. Nobody else gets that much help and handouts fresh off the plane, especially after giving up on themself, their reputation, and their own website/social media. Dakota fucking Hiroshi is the only plausible way she is still in Japan and still with Bravo. If her situation were all about her being the
Real Barbie makeup guru, then why hasn't anyone else reached out to support her? Throw her some decent jobs so she can feel like she's sticking it to all the ugly fat pedo lesbians again? Why didn't her friend with the clothing line use her as a model? She even bought one of the dresses. Why hasn't she had a role in a movie/drama yet? She was doing all those movie release press events for a while. Where's her clothing line? Her Dakota Rose makeup palettes? All the things she should be able to do if the Japanese love her sooo much just for being white and speaking Japanese?
>>260822>It makes more sense that Hiroshi has been supporting her for the last ~3 years as well as helping her with Japanese.
I've sort of suspected this as well for a long time. Based on your post I put together a timeline of how I think that Dakota's relationship with Bravo might
have progressed. Sorry for the length.
>April-October 2012- Dakota arrives in Japan. She is signed to a standard short her term contract.Bravo has already set up a crapload of work for her based on her shooped image including fake Polaroids. Then the big reveal. No matter they just send her to Korea and HK to see if she catches on there. She doesn't. Work dries up and they change her status to special request only.>Roughly Nov 2012-April 2013- Dakota is getting no work. She spends time with her friend in Mie. She shoops like crazy and makes videos.>March 2013-March 2014 Dakota suddenly returns to Bravo's site but now as a direct booking. They start rebuilding her career from the ground up and heavily pushing her brand as the super nihongo fluent Real Barbie.A lot of work and money is put into promoting this ideal. Most of her clients start shooping her face to try to match her own photoshops. Highly unusual. It's obvious that she is being given special treatment. Her Japanese slowly starts to improve. Her accent and intonation especially, indicating that she is spending a lot of time with a native speaker. She keeps getting work and clients keep shooping how she wants with a couple notable exceptions. All of this effort culminates in her getting hired by Candydoll. She uses Tsubasa (probably the most famous Popteen graduate) to get her into Popteen and Cutie. >2014~now From there on, her career kind of builds itself and what we're seeing now is a combination of the dregs of that success and whatever Bravo can rustle up for her. At the moment her career is stalled because she's made herself pretty difficult to work with between the weight gain and attitude. But she is being kept.
tl;dr- Hiroshi spent way too much time and effort trying to make Dakota a success after her initial buzz wore off. Agents and agencies don't usually do this unless they think there will be a big payoff. Dakota didn't deliver.
Didn't Venus marry under the age as long as a parent was there to consent to it ? Or is that only if you're a year under the age.. ?
I always do wonder why she wears a ring ( albeit not on the right finger ) Just a plain little ring that she always wears, and has for the past .. however long ?
( I have no idea how shit works in JP )
I didn't say anything about Dakota specifically, I was responding to a comment that suggested foreign models are all prostitutes.
And while I do think that Dakota is probably fucking Hiroshi, I wouldn't call that fucking your way to the top because at the moment she's scraping rock bottom. It's pure desperation and it's also career sabotage.
I guess my original point was that, although there are some situations like Dakota's, the majority of foreign models can't or won't fuck people to get legitimate modeling jobs because it doesn't work. Maybe to cling to a visa like a million other foreign women in Japan, but not actual bookings.

Also remember Koots catfished the fuck out of them with fake polaroids.

Under normal circumstances, that shit alone should have gotten her ass dumped. even taking into account Japanese politeness, her initial contract should not have been renewed.
Japan in particular is absolutely obsessed with young girls and children. 13-14 is basically the perfect age that all women should strive to not only look like, but act like.
A nation of pedos tbh.
Even being the only gaijin, Dakota manages to be amazingly unremarkable. About a minute or so into the video, it took me a second to actually spot her out in that group shot.
Her head game must be absolutely top notch for this shit to have dragged on for as long as it has, man.
iirc they're super against plastic surgery for some reason >>261130
If you follow her threads more regularly this is already constantly considered. I'd even go so far as to say there's no doubt
>>260221>Dakota's Youtube has flatlined and there's no growth potential
That's the most frustrating part here. She has SO MUCH potential to make some cash there but she won't fucking use it. It doesn't matter that she's not a kawaii uguu princess irl, if she just frequently uploaded videos of dumb jvlogging stuff she would get enough attention from teenage weaboo girls to pick up some income purely because she's in Japan and can say that she is/was a model. She could use the same filters that the other basic bitch jvloggers use and be praised for being honest about her face at the same time>Today the MODELS in TOKYO talked about weightloss so I'll show you how to make shitty cabbage soup>I'm a MODEL in TOKYO so here's what you can buy in the vending machine on my street because quirky japan amirite>a day in the life of A MODEL in TOKYO
It would be enough. But no, unless she spend 18 weeks running it through AE, she won't upload a thing.
>>261176>That's the most frustrating part here. She has SO MUCH potential to make some cash there but she won't fucking use it.

This is the biggest reason I do not believe she's a sugarbaby or whatever. She has many ways of making money if she were really that bottom pit desperate and needed something other than modeling to fall back on. Before she actually became a model she was making bank off her blog and youtube. After she became a model the activity was much less frequent until she unofficially stopped entirely 2 years ago. but i remember back in the day people used to calculate how much she was making, and it was enough to live off.
she could continue to just make robotic hair tutorials she finds on japanese magazines with video game music in the background… the whole reason she was so popular on youtube was because of the AE after all, no one gave a fuck about the tutorials.
Or she could be like Venus and start making click-bait content like "how i learned japanese", "my shoe collection", "tour of my room" etc people would fucking eat that up. she could easily become more youtube successful than Venus.
Just because she has "potential to earn money" doesn't mean she isn't a sugar baby. Nothing she is currently
doing is enough to to support her or justify an entertainment visa. Even if it was, she shouldn't still be with Bravo after ~2 years of bad shoops, D-lsit jobs and agin 5 years and gaining 5kg. The fact that she isn't using her YT, her website, or making videos yet is still signed, still in her apartment and still in Japan without
of those things kind of debunks your "she's not a SB because she could
X/Y/Z" theory. Especially considering how she currently looks.
I personally feel she isn't a sugar baby either. She doesn't have anything to show for it besides an apartment, which if you ask me I wouldn't put it past Hiroshi to bill that to the company rather then pay out of pocket for it. Kota isn't pretty enough for a talent agent to cater completely too as he sees a constant flow of desperate prettier girls trying to get in the agency.
I think its perhaps just a simple trade off of sexual favours for a contract and paid for apartment. I bet you any money though that she probably has a large owing sum to pay back to Bravo ( Maybe Hiroshi loaned too much and now he only keeps her to earn it back )
Did you miss the part where we agreed that her shooping is part of the thing stopping her and that if she just filmed herself normally she would get enough views just for being a model in japan irregardless of her actual looks?
I personally don't think she would be ichiban kawaii jvlogger immediately but she would make enough to survive
Sorry for OT but 'irregardless' isn't a word. You're thinking of either 'regardless' or 'irrespective'.
>>261249>I think its perhaps just a simple trade off of sexual favours for a contract and paid for apartment.
That's exactly what a sugar baby is. As for her apartment, she sure isn't the one paying for it. Trading sex for a place to life is also what sugar babies do, even if they work on the side legitimately and just want a nicer place to live than they can afford. Not all SBs want to be fully supported 24/7, sometimes it's just for extras like nice things, trips abroad, paying for college or to pay off debts like student loans.
>I wouldn't put it past Hiroshi to bill that to the company rather then pay out of pocket for it.
Yeah, I'm sure the agency would just look the other way and whistle Dixie while he bills an apartment to his employer. Maybe
if he were the one living there, which would explain it being 2 bedrooms and would mean Dakota lives with him, at least part time. That explains her natural sounding conversational Japanese skills. If she had had a tutor or taken classes, her grammar would be a lot better.
>Maybe Hiroshi loaned too much and now he only keeps her to earn it back
Except keeping her there would continue to cost them money. If she were in debt to them they would fire her and she would still owe them for any money lost supporting her for the last 3 years.
>>261244>Just because she has "potential to earn money" doesn't mean she isn't a sugar baby
that doesn't make sense. you're aware that she has the potential to be financially independent, but.. what? you think she would rather be fucked by an old man instead?
>Nothing she is currently doing is enough to to support her or justify an entertainment visa
You don't know that. do you know how much her latest gig paid her? how much her rent costs, or what her grocery bill is? do you know how much yen she's getting per month? You're the one with the X/Y/Z theories but no valid proof for anything you say.
as someone also in the asian modelling industry, I can tell you guys that she is no way poor or broke. She's basically moved up to a tier that most model nowadays wishes they were at.
Print ad is chump change and you are basically paid minimum wage, while runway work is a lot of effort for the amount of pay.
The most lucrative line of work for us is appearances through/from brand sponsorship. Working with well-established brands like Shiseido is really tough, while the pay-off is enormous, you are under a lot of scrutiny in terms of image and job restrictions. However, middle-level sponsorships, like the ones that she's under, are easy, short-termed, with reasonable limitations and hefty pay-offs.
Many of us consider her very fortunate, because at the time she got into the business, instagram wasn't as big as it is now, and the "online personalities" boom had just started and agencies here were advise they need to grab as many as possible while their fees were still cheap and lock them in.
>>261272>you're aware that she has the potential to be financially independent, but.. what?
The fact that she's doing none of those things that you claim could "earn her so much money", which was your "proof" se isn't sugaring.
And no, I don't know how much she makes and I don't know how much she spends on food. Probably not much, considering she says she hardly eats and only posts pics of junk food or nice restaurant food. Her apartment, based on how big it is and the fact that it's in Shibuya proper means it's upward of $2K a month easy. As for how much work she gets/how much she makes, if a fat, balding slob like Dakota, who is antisocial and rude, can pull enough money and work to keep her contract for 5 years, her apartment (that she claims she lives alone in) for 3 and still have enough to live on- then why aren't other, prettier girls doing it? Dakota is the outlier, she black sheep at Bravo. Find another A list international agency that lies, edits, and censors a model's work for her while she gains weight, ignores everyone and refuses to wear makeup or dress nicely. Good luck.
The real world doesn't work that way. Real modeling agencies aren't that lenient. They aren't that generous either. And they sure as hell aren't so hard up for white girls with a gimmick that they're scared of losing her.
Honestly I don't care either way, but the fact that Dakota made her career and got to Japan by lying, taking shortcuts, deleting fucking everything and doing the least amount of actual work possible (since she did it all with PS/AE) is what makes it so much more believable that she's sugaring to stay in Japan and live her pretend dream life. Neither her nor Kiki have ever put in actual work or effort for anything the claim they want, they just had their parents buy things for them, cover their asses and whore them out to every media outlet possible. Dakota isn't even willing to eat healthy, get some kind of treatment for that tragic hair loss or even replace her tired ass 4 year old shoes. That's why I honestly don't believe she's really still there because hard work or "earning potential". Which really, she doesn't even have anymore because most of her Japanese feedback is lukewarm at best.
She sure looks and acts broke. And I doubt any other models wish they were Dakota. See >>258019
Totarry enviable desho~~
And she doesn't do much runway work. Se does 1-2 a year maybe? And her apartment and living expenses, if she were payment by for them, would burn through that. She also takes taxis everywhere, which is expensive.
Plus, if the scrutiny is so tough and strict, why does none of it apply to Dakota? They lie about her weight, measurements, and made her direct booking to trick people into thinking she's some kawaii smol dolly and not some bloated has been.
And what sponsorships does she have? She lost Etude, Candydoll, Dollywink, Samsung, Popteen, and every other "mid level" sponsorship she had. All she's been doing are print ads and web commercials for the last year.
As for YouTube/Instagram fame, I doubt she's still there just because she was the first girl to get a deal based on her online following. Taylor makes money off of her YT, so does Venus, and so do a lot of other pretty, thin girls in Japan who may or may not speak Japanese.
Sage for repetitive BS. Dakota still being signed/in her apartment VS. how she looks and the jobs she gets doesn't add up. Something stinks and I'm sure it's not just her greasy hair.

Dacote on a pachinko magazine.
I think you've misunderstood some of the things I brought up. My point is that in Asia, being a C-list model is sometimes much easier and better than becoming "successful".
She isn't under a lot of scrutiny because she ISN'T an A-list model. She gets away with photoshopping because she ISN'T an A-list model.
Btw, Agency ALWAYS lies on publicly-listed profiles, it's common practice. I myself is listed at 181cm 47kg when I'm 175 and 50kg, and I didn't fudge those numbers myself. It's kinda seen as "I COULD be 180, if I were in heels, and I could be 47kg, if you gave me 10 days to go on a diet"
She also didn't lose the sponsorships, contracts end after 6-14 months, which is why they are called mid-level sponsorships. Trends in Asia moves much quicker, fashion/retailer needs new faces each year so their terms are usually shorter than say in Europe or the US.
Also, taxi to and from jobs/agency/salons are 100% compensated, although usually we must arrive at the job site via company car. A perk of working in Asia.
Firstly, Bravo isn't an A-list agency. While they are one of the first place many people look to for white models in editorials, they lack proper connections within Japan to be called a top agency.
Without going into too much, Dakota is also signed through a Japanese talent agency, which is actually giving her more work than Bravo is. That's why the bulk of her work now are more "talento" based.
I can see why many people think she's doing more terrible, because aesthetically editorial is a lot more glamorous, but trust me when I say that the lame and cheesy shoots that she does makes her a lot more money.
File: 1488386709815.png (59.63 KB, 640x686, IMG_4382.PNG)
>>261336>Bravo isn't an A list agency
U wot? Because idk any C-list agencies whose other models only get high end work and manage celebrities. You know who else was signed to Bravo around the same time Dakota was, and is still there? Andreja Pejic (a MTF transgender). Who is actually famous, thin, and beautiful.
>Without going into too much, Dakota is also signed through a Japanese talent agency, which is actually giving her more work than Bravo is.
Then why is she still signed to Bravo?
Ok, tell me more about the industry I'm actually in.
You know how she's under "special booking"?
Well Bravo nowadays actually functions more like an intermediary company, while they have a few notable models signed, most of their big names (usually under "special booking")are actually signed to other agencies, and Bravo simply handles their activities in Japan. Models shown on their websites are the ones they have contracted agreements with for work within Japan.
Visas are a huge issue in Japan, and a lot of Japanese agency don't have the legal team/knowledge to handle foreign talents, so they rely on agencies like Bravo and Free Wave to act as guarantors.
Honestly I hate that it sounds like I'm defending her, I'm not, but there's just a lot of misinformation here that muddles actual reasons to dislike her.
I've never met her, but all I can say is that except for her bf, she's as lonely as you guys think she is. Also from what I've heard, she's scared as fuck about Taylor.
We run in different circles but you do hear things.
Modelling in Japan can be very lonely. I'm half so it's easier, but foreign models comes and goes, so sustaining long term friendships is hard.
I think she really tried hard to make only Japanese friends when she first got here, which is a rookie mistake. It's very hard to forge true friendship with a Japanese as a foreigner here.
Her reasons for being scared of Taylor is because Taylor is much better managed in terms of branding and expansion. Dakota blew up because she was the "first" of her kind, but also because of that they've made a lot of crucial mistakes(like signing popteen), while Taylor's management was able to observe and improve on.
I can not.
But I can confirm anecdotally that most foreign models who decide to work AND live in Japan long-term do so because of their SO.
Thanks for the info anon, but none of this explains why Bravo and Popteen lie so much for her. >>261371>I've never met her, but all I can say is that except for her bf, she's as lonely as you guys think she is.
If you never met her how do you know she has a boyfriend?
Can you tell us the name of the talent agency?
Also I'm not trying to disagree with you but Bravo has been super shady about her since the beginning. The lies they hid for her are incredible. Your height and weight adjustments seem reasonable. Hers don't.
Why was signing Popteen a mistake?
Is Vivienne Westwood even expensive though ?
( I don't wear or buy Japanese brands ) >>261473
Could explain why she speaks "manly"-esq slang, because its all she's been around. Maybe she's one of those girls who are " I only have guy friends because girls are too bitchy" type of people. All in all it doesn't explain why a company would throw money into a pit hole to keep her. >>261524
I get that too, the lying about weight and height, but why lie about her photoshopping and skills. Literally everything about her is a fucking lie … I can't really find much of anything that they didn't lie about …
Yes, that's why I said "not only a model".
All of the popteen girls are considered "models", but they're too short to be considered your typical high fashion model according to the American and European standards.
Why do think that signing on Popteen was a crucial mistake? I seems like a lot of the subsequent work she got came from being Popteen model.
I think it's silly has fuck for Dakota to be scared of Taylor. But can you go into a bit more detail about how Taylor is better managed.
Sorry, I'm a different anon. I'm >>260322
Sadly, I'm not in any Japanese agency so I don't get to hear about her.

File: 1488404505348.jpg (67.61 KB, 576x1024, IMG_4357.JPG)
Bit OT but I have a strange feeling that Bravo used to insinuate that she was hafu because it seems like a lot of Japanese used to think so. I know Dakota actually used to push that narrative herself and during 2012-2014 all of her shoops had that look (blurred rounded nose bridge, stretched eyes and a psuedo inner epicanthic fold, rounded features etc). I feel like they promoted her as hafu because I can't understand how anyone looking at her could make that mistake. She is aggressively white.>>261613
Until model-chan comes back and give specifics, I'll remain skeptical. Of course Dakota is threatened by Taylor.You don't have be in the industry to know that. Although come to think of it, why would have model anon know it? It seems weird that Koots is just blabbing about her insecurities and that model-chan just happened to hear about it.
On a side note, I'm pretty convinced that Koots was in on the Kiki-spergathon even if she wasn't an active participant.
Holy MOTHER FUCKER…
I never understood why anons always cackled and accused her of knock offs.. I do now.. Some of the clothing is down right ugly and cost the same amount as a mac book .. tf..
I literally thought it was some fugly kawaii lolita tier clothing that was mildly over priced… >>261597
I'm getting hues of shadiness coming from ModelAnon. I don't know what to believe as some of what they say sounds fairly believable while other things just really don't add up. How would they know anything ? Dakota doesn't talk to anyone or really leave the apartment all that much.
Maybe model anon is that model from pictures with Dakota ? The one that agreed to post an edited version of Dakota and her on IG. ( Lia_JP / though she's 100% Korean and not hafu ) >>261617
Didn't Bravo use to have her listed under "Asian" on their site ? I remember Anons cackling about that.
There really is a lot that isn't adding up. First of all, this talent agency is nowhere to be found. Fellow moon-capable anons, is you feel like searching go ahead. I just searched through a whole bunch of of garbage "real barbie" articles full of old shoops (btw does Bravo pay people to still write this shit because it like 2012 all over again)and came up with nothing. Whereas, I can find the talent agencies of just about every other talent.
A lot of what she said makes sense on surface and sounds reasonable, butwhen you start considering it relation to Koots, things kind of fall apart.

DEAR GOD YIKES>>261635
this is a really cute shoop tbh should have stuck to that style… but shoop nonetheless
Don't forget the Samsung commercial where they made her legit half looking.

Idk, he has a few pics like that of her leaning way the fuck back and poking her belly out. She must think it's some fancy high fashion model pose or something. Makes her look prego tbh.
Yeah I really think that Bravo used to market her as hafu behind the scenes. It would make sense with the career that she ended up having. Especially her affiliation with gyaru stuff like popteen, candydoll, cutie,even larme and tiara miley and also what about the fucking kimono that she's modeled. Those are not normal jobs for gaijin models, but if Bravo sort of hinted that she could be half, I think those jobs become more plausible.
I really think Bravo is dishonest as fuck.
I don't think anyone is triggered
anon. People just have questions. If model-chan answers them, then great. She's being a bit evasive and that has people wondering that's all. No one is saying that she is flat out lying. There are pieces that don't make sense.
>>261132>they're super against plastic surgery for some reason
Nah, more like Ostrengas need it but can't afford it. So they gotta shit on Taylor's.>>261173
Stop it Koots, he was never your bf.
but that talks bad about them too.
Leaking private messages so that your friends and fans can have a laugh and shit talk that person in public is not exactly classy.
You're really exaggerating anon. Most of them weren't even in Japan yet when Koots moved there. And none of them were ever very active on any incarnation of PULL. I remember Sharla and Rachel made accounts during the drama with Mira, but they were not there shit-talking constantly. This one incident is the only one that happened.
BTW this yet another example of how Ostrengas can ditch it out but can't take it. Koots was a complete nightmare before she got to Japan and deliberately did things to hurt people online for the lulz. Duncan's little 10sec parody was nothing.
I know Tay wasn't there, it was just one example of things they have done as a group. >>261706>Koots probably already since how childish that group is like who still have sleepovers wtf.
Well I can agree with this kek
>Kooters should've known they would screenshot a private message almost everyone does that now.
I think she thought Duncan wasn't going to leak it…
It's all cool. >>261737>Probably most of them lurk there and read about other flakes. That includes Koots btw,

Give it up kota you will never look like this
OT: I kinda think this model is ugly .. It looks like her mouth area is upturned or something. Her face reminds me of a bulldog or pug… >>261789
Her head looks even more beefy in this shot. kek
What the fuck was that guy at the end??
And her hair literally looks unwashed. So stringy and dark, wow. Other than that, her face looks less busted here but idk if that's the video quality or the blurry shots d her up close from the phone's POV.
>>262063> in reality she's average size (or even smaller) for an American girl.
The average American girl is overweight.
I truly wish you would at least skim thru the threads rather then throwing a mini tantrum about " omg she's not fat you guys ".
> We are not calling her fat for a normal person, we are calling her fat for a model which she is …
Do you understand the difference between the two ?
Just because anons call Dakota fat doesn't make them anorexic. She does look fat because she's a dumpy mess from not taking care of herself. At her height (5"3) and current weight, she's fat. She was average when she first got to Japan, not super skinny, just average. Then she gained 15 pounds (that we know of, could be more). Also fat =/= obese, her being ~smol~ doesn't buy her more skinny points just because most fatties are tall or much fatter.
Sorry if it triggers
you stan, but that doesn't make t anymore less true just because she's been able to get everyone to lie about her gaining 15 pounds.
How many times does it have to be specified
She is fat FOR A MODEL and especially one in Japan

Why did the thread suddenly fill up with a large amount of simply-written posts praising Dakota's appearance, right after this investigative post? Some examples linked in this post (also what caused me to notice.)>>262076
It's an interesting change in pattern. Especially since everyone just saw her latest work, and it's some of her least impressive, ever, unfortunately. Farmers critiqued and criticized it, and while the reaction was not positive, it's accurate.
My personal theory is Kiki got a new VPN/changed settings on her current one and is on a rampage again. Maybe she is even hafu model chan, trying to plant theories that would cause farmers to view Dakota in a more sympathetic or positive light. Farmers scrutinize, so they will notice a similar pattern of grammatical errors in posts when all of these express a similar sentiment. (Is proofreading that difficult?) Like okay Koots, lots of people really want your career to work out too, but girl, you need to get it together. Just like Donald Trump cannot, in reality, "make America great again" by straight-up lying, Kiki cannot "make Dakota great again" by shitposting.
Just go to the gym a few times a week, decrease your carb intake, and everyone would shut the fuck up about your jello body. Kiki, seek therapy.

She's fat for her size. The only people so invested in convincing everyone she isn't would be her and her family, or other flabby skinnyfats who want to believe fat is "average" so they feel less bad about being fat.

Fuck this shoop still gives me the willies.
She looks like a wax model. Some serious spook.
Being a fat/extremely average commercial model doesn't matter, but Bravo doesn't have a commercial model division, they only have high fashion models. When they scout a girl they think about if they can use her for commercial, catalogue and runway. If the girl doesn't fit in one of these categories (usually runway due to height) they won't hire her. If she's incredibly beautiful and is at least 168 they'll hire her and say she's 170. The 168 girls that are in the website are 165 irl but they're pretty and can bring money to the agency (and I can totally see them doing shoots for high end brands, look at those faces). They were fooled by Dakota (shooped polaroids) and they're stuck with a girl that doesn't look like her photos and doesn't take care of her. So yes, for a high fashion model in a high fashion agency, she's fat. As I said, she can gain weight and not worry about her job, the others are constantly worried about gaining a single kg. She's been there for 5 years, she has to renew her contract next year unless they put her on an exclusive and for life contract which I doubt. Or maybe the contract is for 5-7 years. My advice is lose weight and take care of yourself, Dakota, because once it's over you'll be back to Kiki's side. If you want to live there you should work hard. And as for her flat and expenses, if her parents aren't paying for it and Bravo is paying, she's going to drown in debt.

When she was average to begin with.
Literally why are you so emotionally invested in proving Cooter isn't ~~~technically~~~ fat? Nobody cares about your technicalities, she looks like shit
. Do you really thing that if you manage to convince everyone on lolcow that she's ~technically average, but fat for a model because they're all anachans~ is gonna make her look any different? She'll still look like a huge pile of chewed gum.
/sage for semantics
I don't think I'll ever understand they way people like Dakota's minds work…
I'd rather diet and exercise then to actually be fat and shoop it thin ( then again I ain't got the fucking time to sit around and edit a damn picture ) Man you'd think she would since she has zero control over any of these photoshoots though. Plus the amount of time she spends on one picture she could of spent on a jog or hitting the gym.
File: 1488563495431.jpg (114.27 KB, 1037x601, image.jpg)
She's def significantly bigger then the other models.
I don't trust halfu model-chan. She says that the reason Dakota can stay in Japan is because she gets high brand name jobs, not print ad jobs. Even if this were the case, with the amount of jobs that she gets, it would not be enough to sustain her. Even if something like the Fit's job paid her $10,000, she doesn't get enough of these jobs.
Life in Tokyo is expensive. Having a 2LDR in Shibuya is extremely expensive. I highly doubt that she makes enough to sustain herself. It's likely that Bravo or manager-san are chipping in, which is NOT the usual case for a model.
Most models are thrown into small, shared apartments. They are genuinely disposable, especially to an agency like Bravo, and their contracts only last a few months to MAYBE a year. There are hundreds of other skinny white girls clambering for their time in the spotlight, so if you gain a few cm in your waist they'll find someone else who can maintain it. There is absolutely NO excuse to gain that much weight as a model. Anyone else would be dropped insanely quick.
Other models are also usually very invested in getting hair sets, nails done, new bags, shoes, etc. I'm not sure if it's just because she's depressed and doesn't give a fuck, but it could also just be that she's broke as fuck.
It's just weird. And no, I can't find her listed under any talent agency. Why would they go through another talent agency when she already has connections to Tsubasa and the Popteen team through Bravo? Makes no sense. She is definitely being kept. This is not normal.
File: 1488563746482.jpg (38.52 KB, 600x338, B7Z3N3gCAAESJor.jpg)
Yeah nothing came up for me either and tried a number of combos;ダコタローズ＋事務所(agency)、タレント(talent)、芸能社(talent agency). Nothing but Bravo came up.
But honestly, I think the fact that she gained so much weight should be an indicator that she isn't signed with a Japanese agency because I have a hard time believing that they would be ok with that. Even if they didn't drop her, wouldn't they at least pressure her to lose weight and be more presentable? Unless of course this "talent agency" is a shitty gaijin farm full of "charisma" guys named Todd. The maybe it would be believable.>>262606
She is also fat by Japanese model/talent standards (pic related Dakota's peers、Michopa and Yura)
File: 1488564715163.jpg (47.13 KB, 480x481, o0480048112927699967.jpg)
i don't think she ever had to exercise or watch her weight as a teen. after being a chubby, prepubescent she stayed pretty small for a while.
and I was being charitable when I picked that pictures because, Yura especially is actually on the bigger end of the Pop models. If I really wanted to highlight how shit Koots is, I would pick this one.

Some more Popteen models
Not just that, she's posing hard as fuck too. She's sucking in, standing on her toes, has her bum stuck out and her heels all the way apart (and her thighs still
touch lol), and she's pulling her shoulders back super hard. This pic makes me think she's holding her breath and as soon as the lights flashed she just let it all out and everything fell and/or widened 3cm.

Not only this, but her runway work (the closest she gets to Bravo-tier work) is shabby at best too. Always baggy, always either dark solids or obnoxious patterns.
Why most of the popteen models are so busted, yes they're skinny and all but kek they're all ugly, fucking japanese standards…>>262665
Poor kota she looks like Nanny from Count Duckula
First of all Taylor doesn't look emaciated at all. And why bring her up??
Secondly, Koots, actually is about their average heights. And for a western girl she has a petite bone structure. You can tell from her wrists. It's the reason that she didn't end up sized out of Popteen earlier. It's the reason she could model for Tiara Miley (despite having a gut). If she was average framed, she'd be around 130-135 instead of 120-125. Her hips would have been around 37-38inches which would knock her out of most gyaru style fashion. She's chubby as fuck and she should thank whoever, that she is small boned or she'd look bigger.

this girl looks pretty good, I have to say.
and any other day people would be clamoring over themselves to screech "AVERAGE!!!!" and yet, koots is still less than her.
did you even read what I was responding to??? I'm not saying Dakota isn't fat but dumbass anons keep being NNOOO BUT BMI so I posted a model yes she's fat for a model
Good fucking god like I said you guys are dumbasses
She still looks underweight though.
The Japanese models may be perfectly healthy and naturally very slight, but judging white models by Asian standards isn't a fair comparison
Lmao. You guys are so sad :( Are you honestly so down on yourselves that you have to call this seemingly normal girl fat? Yeah she looks like shit, I don't give a flying fuck about Dakota or what she does. Though, blatantly calling her fat is just plain
stupid. I'm just saying there are other types of models who don't have to be stick thin - and I'm sure they give her slack for being a foreigner, but I've seen plenty of catalog models who look pretty normal. And before some dumb asshole starts shouting 'bye fatty' at me, I'm not fat or overweight.
Literally nobody ITT mentioned BMI at all.
>She's fat FOR A MODEL111!!!
and the general consensus is that she should not be a model since he doesn't want to take care of herself. Anyone else would have been sent home on their fat ass, except her.
Dakota is fat.
She isn't a tarento. For one, she has written "model" in every single social media bio of hers. Other than the few TV shows that she was on a few years ago, when has she recently done tarento work? You are still a model even if you are appearing in videos or are making media appearances. It doesn't just mean print ads and runway.
They tried hard to make
her a "gimmick" tarento with the whole catchphrase thing a while back, but she completely failed due to her rude personality. She hasn't been invited back to any variety or gameshows after she gave that one singer a really bad score in the singing competition show she was a part of.
File: 1488583957203.png (1.25 MB, 981x747, 1434892937932.png)
Kind of a rough way of saying "what the hell!" or "no freaking way." It was her usual answer to "have you had plastic surgery?">>262868
She hasn't been on TV programs for a while, though. This screencap was from June 2015, and the singing competition was shortly after that. I don't think she was ever booked for any variety programs after that, because a lot of people on Twitter were complaining about how rude she was. She can't really be considered a "tarento" in 2017 with her recent body of work. Hell, the "model" label barely still applies with how few jobs she gets.
>>262872>She can't really be considered a "tarento" in 2017
But that's not what they think, they still present her as a tarento, so…
Your opinion =/= Reality
File: 1488584209155.png (107.14 KB, 640x1047, IMG_4444.PNG)
It also lists her height as both 162cm (5"3) and 5"5. The weight category is blank (topkek), and her H/W/B are listed as 29"/22"/30". This shit is as full of lies as the Bravo bio and the last page of measurements Popteen printed of her. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Dakota wrote the herself. Also strangely it has no mention of her being a Floridian, just that she's from Chicago.

Jesus Christ. Yes if you are female, you need to be thin to be a tarento UNLESS your gimmick is that you're fat and funny (like Naomi Watanabe). That's not Kooters gimmick.
Pic related- popular tarento Akemi Darenogare
Dakota IS short. 1.62 or 1.63 are pretty accurate imo. That's not a lie.
>They don't say her weight
That's not necessary and it's not a rule. They have photos to judge that.
And even if they were lying, that's not Dakota's fault. So you giving her shit for something she doesn't even posted or said is stupid.
Who is "they"? Her agency doesn't. Her social media bios don't. You realize anyone can edit Wikipedia articles, right? Even if it wasn't her, you can also see right there that her measurements were taken in 2015. It's outdated. >>262874
The Fit's campaign is still modeling. Just because it's a commercial doesn't mean she's a tarento. She also hasn't been interviewed or really had news coverage at all, like normal tarento would get.
It hasn't just been a week, either. She's been off television shows for almost two years now.

Tell that to Naomi.
They are fake measurements. Anyone with eyes can see that.
No Koots you are not
74 - 58 - 78 cm/29 - 23 - 31 in
You can assume any measurements given publicly by her or anyone associated with her are lies.>>262905
Yeah I'd think that was the case for her except moles and freckles aren't really considered attractive in Japan. Maybe though.
File: 1488586868159.png (23.11 KB, 200x247, topkek.png)
kek these edits are HILARIOUS.
People keep adding "Ostrenga" to her article, making her measurements bigger, and changing her birthday from '95 to '93. KurodaSho and anon users keep changing it back. Looks like it's only been fussed with a handful of times since 2015, though.
Jesus her bellybutton is fucking with me.
Why isnt she tone. Its not that hard.
Just some vasic ass cardio.
I think she hates herself. Shame because she could be really pretty if she took care of her appearance. Maybe that's why her looks are going worse over time.
(blog) I have a cousin that's blonde, blue-eyed, thin and very pretty, and her familly always said she was going to be a famous model and get them out of poverty. (blog)
I think thats what happened to Kota and she feels like a failure, she is a really sad girl ans she probably thought she only had cuteness as a good point but is now sorrounded by girls that are so much more thin and cute than her.
She looks like she wants to cry in >>261691
Sage for armchair and blogging.
Look I understand where you're coming from but she's made her own bed. She made it when she shooped everything even Polaroids. She made it when she used to copyright everything remotely negative under the sun. She made it when she wasn't able to rein in her boredom and attitude on TV. Basically, Koots jack-hammered her way into a career she simply wasn't suited for and it's worked for the most part.
She was handed every opportunity on on silver platter. I haven't seen that kind of pimping of a gaijin since Leah Dizon (who at least had the looks to back it up).
I haven't seen anything from her yet that suggests that she has changed for the better. Her most recent reply to a comment I saw was self important, vaguely condescending, and an outright lie.

Jesus she looks like fucking 8 years old.
then you must be new, because the BMI thing took over last thread for awhile. and people have been nitpicking about how exactly fat she is for awhile.
my point is that you can't say "dakota is thin she's a normal size for an average person". she's fat no matter how you spin it, because she's either fat in general or too fat to be a model. now calm the fuck down before you sperg any harder.
Well, that's what she wants, at least. I think she looks haggard as hell in candids, more like a 30 year old mom.
In her shoops idk how old she looks because she doesn't look human, and not in a good way like she wants. idk if she still thinks she looks like a kawaii elfu goddess with her alien babby shoops or what.

Yeah, she put her foot in her mouth by giving Kumamushi a low score for virtually no reason. She thought she was being tottemo kawaii with her cheeky little low vote, but I think that this was a very bad move for her. If it wasn't, she sure went through great lengths to scrub it from the Internet.

link to this video?
also, do we have any pics of hiroshi? curious what he looks like
I wonder if at any moment she saw the other scores and realized how bad she fucked up
Or is she that far up her own ass
Are you being deliberately obtuse. We don't know if she affords her apartment herself. I kind of doubt it because a 2LDK in the middle of fucking Shibuya is probably not under 3000 dollars a month. And no I don't think that Dakota makes enough regularly to afford that. >>263260
No. That was Dakota in all of her obnoxious glory. I'll see if I can find the video.
Usually, yeah. But I just can't see Bravo or anyone else telling her to give that low of a score, ya know? It completely ruined her chances of being a regular on variety shows. It never would have been presented as "quirky" or "cute" to give him such a low score, it's just straight-up rude. Especially in Japan. >>263295
True, but most models are thrown into cheap, shared houses that don't cost the agency much to maintain. Kooter lives in a 2LDR in the middle of Shibuya, supposedly by herself. That would be costing them thousands a month just for one model. One that's not even really getting much work, for that matter. If she were Rola or something, I could see it. As it is, though, it just doesn't add up.
Anon, they're hiked up because it only fits at her waist. Her hips are too wide due to her weight gain. You see how in >>262665
, it's showing her stomach pouch. She wouldn't be able to get it any lower than that.
Yeah it was a special moment.I can't find the video anymore but what she said when asked about the score was paraphrased in kind nasty fake saccharine tone.
"I thought the singing it good, but I just didn't FEEL their passion." or something along those lines. And she giggled about it.
Ostrengas scrubbed the Internet of it but it's probably out there somewhere. Just have to search the name and season/episode. I'm not sure what it's called.
You can search him on FB. I am one of those people uncomfortable making the link between them because there's no real evidence they're together.
Maybe this "friend" is really just her flatmate coming home .. A flatmate who happens to be a model and also gets gigs unlike her… ( Probably pays most the bills )

This spare room just looks like she plastered self shrines on the window to give the illusion she's there on her own. I wouldn't be surprised if she befriended/bestied a more top tier model who travels abroad a lot.
Maybe Bravo is okay with covering the rent since a higher ranked model lives there ? I could see them doing that for a successful model.

Bro, I remember watching her videos while in the computer class with my best friend, who had a huge crush on her. Good times
Sage for ot
I'm glad I knew she was a photoshop or after effects fraud from the start, all the signs are there if you look closely.
Thing is I would never have guessed that she's much more ugly than I thought.
Didn't she buy the same necktie for herself before she ever even left for Japan? Did she dress herself for this??
I'm guessing she did her own makeup too because wouldn't any mua in their right mind give her some eyeliner…
I'm assuming it's a 2LDK. At least that's the term used in Japan

To whatever the hell creature she is in this>>263480
In such A short time? It's not just the weight, there's something else that's really off about her face these days.
That ship has sailed, anon.
I don't want to bring up her age argument again, but she really does look closer to 24 than 21. I've never seen a 21 war old with a face this saggy and beaten. TBH she looks older than Kiki, who at least wears mascara. >>263733
I thin it's just the filter + an unfortunate shot of her in the middle of making a facial expression. It does look bad though, but really so does the blue dress pic. She looks like somebody's mom, not a spokesmodel for Bravo.
it would also be cute if she wasn't such a cunt.
anyone notice how she keeps having her hair in her face in recent pics to try to hide her jowls, so she doesn't have to shoop them as much?
Its also possible its a flatmates inhaler ?
I mean if she doesn't even take care of her hair/nails and skin as well as gained weight and eats trash all day, why would she even bother going to the doctors for that.
But why also get a 2 bedroom apartment and buy a bed to put in the other room if you have no friends. Why not make a makeup room or office out of it ?
could be part of trying to seem legit for a marriage visa?
either that or she does have a roommate, idk

"a model working in Japan that became fat and ugly."
If it were a choker it would be tighter and higher up on her neck. It's a leather collar, salty. >>264170
It has to be a joke, 30.5 BMI would make her about 80kg/175pounds. She's realistically probably 50-60kg.

. Trying to pass her off as a model is pretty kekworthy though. That really kills all the stans' arguments that she's still there because of her 2012 shoops and her ~long lasting efame~.

Totally agree with you about just about everything in this post. But to tbh they probably did introduce her as "Real Barbie". That caption was probably just on screen when she was interviewed. I mean they still introduced her as "Real Barbie" in the Abematv Web show and well (pic related).
Of course I could be wrong.
Her eyes look so small in this picture, like I know they were never big but… >>264097
I can't read Japanese, but if this was a Farmer I'm surprised they didn't put "sleeps with manager to obtain job/visa". Maybe this was a "edgy" Pulltard as nothing seems to extreme from what I'm seeing from other anons.

SAME. Even before the big reveal, when everyone knew she was photoshopped, but no one had any candid photo to know what she looked without it, I mostly thought that she enlarged her eyes and maybe fixed her makeup digitally. never even considered that she edited her jaw
the first line below says>Born in Florida on September 19, 1993
both those things are wrong. even the source cited at  actually says born in Chicago, IL on September 19, 1995
this is awful.
she would be pretty if she was healthier and lost some weight, and stopped this ugly makeup. and got better hair.
half of what is dragging her down is this god awful makeup
Eh, I think the edits were done by some anon trying to annoy Dakooter. She was
born in Chicago though. As for her DOB, that horse has been thoroughly beaten.
What's sad is that even this footage had special lighting and smoothing filters but she still looks like a troll.>>264217
Her jaw is the least of what she edited when you look at it now. Literally everything was modified. The best is that she really believed she was hot shit bc of her attitude. She still does too.

Pic related, how much better she could look probably any time again if she lost weight and styled herself right. The difference is really jarring and likely has a lot to do with her decline in job offers, along with her rude persona and behavior on TV.

I went back in the catalog and found the cap of the tweet she made, since it's been deleted. She did say she had a degree in sound engineering, but that has to be bullshit. Her and Kiki went to Valencia college before she went viral but a degree in sound engineering takes 2 years and you have to be 16 to enroll. Valencia does
offer one-off technical courses in sound and music production, but the age limit would still apply. Either she's lying about her age or she's lying about having the degree.
File: 1488822390141.jpg (79.11 KB, 600x450, 1439414197886.jpg.aee05d34e7cd…)
I know Kaka has the degree. Pic related.
Whether Tooters didn't actually do it with her and just lied and said she did, or she did do it and she's older than she says, I don't know.
I don't ever remember Kota showing hers off though. But then again, she's not as much of a humblebrag as Kirsten.
I'm reluctant to bring up discussion of Kota's age because farmers tend to get aggravated.
I personally don't mind discussing it, though I do kinda agree that the topic is beating a dead horse.
Ok so, it's a nitpick, but that's not an actual degree, that's a certificate of completion, meaning she did the <1 year course.
Any idea when she posted this on her IG? I can't go check since she made her main account private.
didn't notice before, but dude, that anon is right. that's a legitimate dog collar. she's even wearing it as such.>>264271
you're probably right. i could imagine, that she doesn't want to lose weight, because her face would look too boney and saggy. that would be a good reason to get fillers, but apparently the ostrengas are opposed to that.
The source from which I got the picture called it a degree, so I just assumed. Figures though.
I'm sure Kaka claimed it was too. I know she put 'Bachelors' in the education section of her profiles on those dating sites, kek.
Just chiming in to say what other farmers have said, this is definitely not a degree.
She's such a goddamn phony, trying to pass this off as a degree. Fucking shameful. Probably one of the worst things Kaka has done, in my opinion, anyway.
Just had to google "comprehensive audio engineering & music production Orlando"
and there ya go: http://www.first.edu/programs/audio-engineering-and-music-production
If it was a degree, it would say a degree was awarded, not a "course of study". It'd be more accurate to call it a certification.
Just checked mine, and it says my name is "admitted to the degree of" then my field of study, not "this document is to certify". It also clearly says I was awarded "Bachelor of _____". Online Bachelor's degrees are similar in wording.
If it was a degree, it would say degree. It's a cert.
aging you guys are fucking retarded,
2012-2017 when you're in your early twenties barely makes a fucking differences unless youre binge drinking, binge eating, or doing hard drugs
this was max like 3 years ago.
dakota could do this shit in her sleep how much she photographed herself but no.
somebody else rip off this aesthetic and actually give her fans what she wont even bother with doing
Adding to this:
The surreal, yet still (somewhat) natural beauty of her edited pics is also part of what made her such a big deal on 4chan/Tumblr. Most girls who are into kawaii shit/Japan/anime don't look like that. They look like… well, real Dakota.

She's competing with 10 year olds now tho.
Why are you so angry?
In that pic from when she started at Popteen she was barely still pulling off the cutesy look. She needed to be perfectly lit to offset her harsh bone structure. The same with Kiki. Both of the Ostrengas peaked in their mid teens and are aging like milk.
It's not that uncommon for that to happen. You see it with a lot of models where, their strong bone structure is still delicate enough in their teens, but when they hit their 20's it becomes sharper and more masculine. That's what's happened to both Kiki and Koots. She could still look good if she wanted to, but the kawaii look doesn't suit her anymore. She could make a decent go at the insta-ho look which favors strong bone structure and a lot of make-up (which Koot's face can handle).>>264414>Taylor derangement syndrome strikes again

>>264405>Dakota took off on tumblr and in Asia but never really gained traction in the west because her look didn't cater to the west
Wrong. She never took off in the west because she completely refused to acknowledge anything that wasn't east asian. I know that places like latin America lost their fucking brains over her. you wouldn't believe just how many TV news, front page magazines, and official online websites covered her. The middle east also paid immense attention to her during her 15 minutes in 2012. Hoards of Russians sites too, in fact it was the Russian "insekts" that told Valeria about Dakota, and caused Valeria to start dressing up as a "living doll" because they taunted her that Dakota was more beautiful than her (pic related). And her photo from this article was once the top page story on the Daily Mail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2122177/Meet-real-life-Barbies-Internet-craze-sees-teenagers-turn-freakish-living-dolls.html
she had to FORCE Asia to notice her. one of her first ever videos had korean subtitles. then she made a weibo and promised to learn chinese, then she started making her popular videos with japanese subtitles. I really think at the height of her popularity she could have chosen any country, done videos in their language, and have probably nabbed a modeling contract in there. She was able to hand-pick Japan because it was her prime choice.

Not that anon, but i completely agree with them. this whole "she's aged" bullshit always makes me roll my eyes. I honestly believe some of you guys are just unknowingly fooled by her old shoops and actually think she used to be prettier back then. when in fact she's always had the same meaty face and laugh lines. we're just seeing it in their full glory now that we're getting more candids and videos than back then.

I wonder why they felt the need to defend themselves to internet trolls like us
I'm pretty sure you didn't read my post at all because that was not the point.
I won't use the word masculine. Instead I'll replace it with hard.
Koots (and other girls like her) used to have softer more delicate features. Now growing up her features have also grown and she's lost the baby fat, her face is hard.
Maybe her masseter muscles got bigger from all the shiitake mushroom sampling she's been doing over the years.
( Though some argue whether that muscle can get significantly larger from exercising it, but its possible maybe with age if she was still developing at the time. Just like her feet grew and she got maybe a smidgen taller her face could have changed. )
are unusually angry about Koots being called old looking.
>>264552>>264363>It'd be more accurate to call it a certification.
It's even less than that. It's just an acknowledgement of completion really.>The Comprehensive Audio Engineering and Music Production Program at F.I.R.S.T. College, is eight months and designed to teach students all aspects of Recording Arts.
So it was at best a one-year commitment. Not a degree.
jfc why didn't she just get a degree from a community college or something if she wants to pretend she has one so bad lol
She had more than enough time to do it. But I guess they just have an innate need to lie about literally everything.
High school diploma or GED, in the state of FL at least. There's an exception though for students still enrolled in primary school that allows them to take college courses while still in HS. >>264621
It's a college program certification. Meaning she paid money and enrolled in a college to take a course offered there, completed it and is now qualified to do whatever the certificate entails. It doesn't carry as much weight as a degree, but it does look good on a resume.

i actually remember both of them going around calling themselves "audio/sound engineers" as if it was their profession. I know dakota did it on her old formspring. that's one of the reasons I used to think she was much older, because she made herself seem like she had a professional job.
yet what did they even do with it? kiki failed multiple times at selling her ripoff music on iTunes, there are still some hilariously bad reviews if you look up Kiki Mimuex over there. and the kickstarter back when dakota had already gone viral but not yet realized she could cash in on modeling, and they both planned on wasting $20k just to drive around the country.
None of the shit with Dakota was intentional. The only thing intentional was once her & Kathy realized they good get on this ride to the fame train they took it & she started pandering to different asian communities.
it was basically the 1st & last time Dakota made any smart decisions.
she's cute here why is she so freaky looking now.
if she did stuff like this everyone would watch her
File: 1489002108334.png (143.02 KB, 640x1095, IMG_4505.PNG)
I agree. I'm saying that I believe she never meant to go viral, and that her shoops were probably just some weird altered self portraits for some class she could have taken when she went to whatever college she got her "sound engineering degree" from. Those classes that teach AE and PS were available for 09-10 and 10-11.
It also coincides with the beer commercial she was in with Kiki for college in 2009.
I hope she gets in a non fatal car crash for being one of those shitheels who wants to speed past a SLOW DOWN LIGHT. You should literally ONLY do that when there's no safe way to stop abruptly. This is driving safety 101.
Good job endangering other people's lives you braindead bitch.

seriously stop. apart from every single one of these "she's older" claims being easily debunked, there's overwhelming evidence already that she's the age she claims she is. pic related from their archive, a hater from 2006 that met them in person confirming she was 11 at the time.

How in the fuck does her hair look thinner now then it did then when she is still wearing the same amount of extensions.
>that entire message
This is why I'm glad scene died. It was just illiterate, trashy retards sperging at each other. Also plains why Kiki loved it so hard lol.
As for Kota's age, idc how old she is, she still looks too old for 21 because she doesn't take care of herself.

I'll leave this here.
Admittedly they were acting like cunts. I used to really like Micaela's videos but based on this and some other comments she's made she seems like she has a terrible personality. I'd actually have no idea who the fuck Mimei is if I didn't browse here. I honestly can't stand these people. They're all in competition to profit the most off of Wacky Japan!! and I think that's what I can't stand about them. I think they're salty that they're still shilling Youtube videos titled shit like "Trying Weird Japanese Snacks!" while Dakota has been able to make a living in Japan without having to commodify her mundane daily experience of buying onigiri from the famima to the weebs back home.
Taylor is the only bearable one of them all because she doesn't shit pettiness like this all over twitter. Can you imagine how the other jvloggers would've reacted if they'd been in Tay's position when kiki-is-spergchan-gate happened? They'd have a field day. They'd have squeezed at least three videos out of that.

I don't think it's a specific person besides maybe young Gemma Ward/Sasha Pivovarova, I think she's just trying to look like a Russian model-off-duty in general. The new shoop proportions plus the lack of make up and oversized clothes and lazy hairstyles imply this.

It looks so weird because she shooped her body to be skinny but she lacks the definition someone would have if they were actually that size.
You can especially notice it in her calves and her lack of ankles. You can still tell she's doughy as fuck and it throws everything off.
That top with sneakers tho. Just… why.
>>266479>I think Dakota is really pretty
She has the potential to be pretty, but in reality she's rather plain. if I knew nothing about her shoops or who she was, I would wonder what contest she won to be in this ad. >>266486
Japan isn't a nation of pedophiles. True, the focus there is on cute and youthful rather than sexy and sultry, but that doesn't mean all Japanese men prefer lolis and jailbait who pander to ephebophiles(?). According to Charms, before Dakota ever went viral or dressed kawaii, she told we she liked Asian guys, and preferred older men. Her going viral and Japan noticing her was her perfect chance to start pandering to that demographic- older Asian men who like young girls who act cutesy and shy. That doesn't mean she went viral in Japan because they all wanted to fuck an underaged white girl. She went viral because she tagged her videos and pics with the kind of shit those men already use to search for their fap material.

shaving her jaw, get bangs or at the very least start using dry shampoo to achieve some volume.

purging then it's not working.
Ah, I see. That would make sense then.
Whether she's bulimic or not though, she looks like death. Her unhealthy diet/eating habits are really
showing on her face and skin now. It's coming down hard and fast.
If she doesn't start eating healthier and exercising soon she'll regret it so much later in life. I don't know how she can be content looking like this >>267235

What is this pic even supposed to be? An anorexic photoshopped fetus in running shoes, a frilly top and no pants? And the upskort angle makes it even worse somehow.
But I guess she got sick of losing ~300 followers a month pretending to be a model and had to start pandering to her true demographic again.
jesus fucking christ that's so sad
plus i feel like she shoops her chin even smaller
she's honestly at an all time low and has never looked worse.
i hope she turns her shit around and can become something to be proud of. at this point it's just unfortunate watching her waste all this opportunity. she could be so much happier and have all the things she wants

Looks like she got tired of us talking about her naked nails.
Once again she shooped her knuckles and some fingers are so fat compared to others.
No, nobody sits there and shrinks everyone's fingers thinner and longer, or erases their knuckles.
Just look at any Tokyo salon's instagram. They brighten it and use built-in smoothing but that's about it.
She has a closet full of shoes and she chooses fucking sneakers.. Simple flats or heels would have been 1000x better.
Are the Nike shoes special or brag worthy ( expensive ) or is her style literally that tragic ?

File: 1489491095386.jpg (195.17 KB, 634x424, fb.jpg)
i think it's just a product of her BDD. The more her insecurity and need to feel special deepens, the more unreal her virtual-fantasy self gets.
She peaked in her teens, but that doesn't mean she was gorgeous or pretty. All it means is thats when she looked her best and now its going down hill. Whereas most are starting to peak now in their 20s.
Anons here aren't stupid, they know all her images were shooped, but at least back then she could actually pull off some of the cutesy shit. Now she just looks like a corpse that sat in water to long and is starting to lose hair and bloat.

>>269445>All it means is thats when she looked her best
i disagree. i still say she looked exactly the same irl, pic related on the left. If anything has made her go downhill it's growing out her bangs and putting less makeup (eyeliner, mascara etc) that's literally the only difference I see.
Man…this is awful. I think as she's maturing her chin and jowls are really filling out. Also, no eyemakeup means you focus on the bottom of her face.
She definitely needs different styling and layers to frame that jaw. >>269497
Even here, it seems like she suffers bloat on the regular, but her jaw isn't as insane as it is now. It makes sense if she's moving from her teens into her mid twenties (I don't care if she's 2 years older or younger) her face is chiseling out.
She really has too many harsh features to be a Japanese model and not enough strange or striking features to be a Western model. Not saying she's hideous, but the camera ain't kind to a judging audience with what she has to offer.

That can do wonders for anyone.

Thought I'd give it a shot. With a smaller jaw she would look much better and losing a bit of weight. I shooped her wrists because it weirded me out there was no definition kek.
will this argument end?
DAKO WAS ALWAYS PHOTOSHOP
unless somebody took a candid of her, any pictures of her former self from her or kiki/dad aka "photographer" were edited to hell and back even in the scene days.
wow you're retarded. never heard before of a 16/17 year old "still growing out her chin" until it fully comes out at 21. Chins are not prepubescent dicks.

Calm down, aspie. Her chin was never as small as her shoops and I never said it was. All I sad was that losing weight isn't going to make her chin shrink, because she's always had a meaty chin, and that her face looked smaller even without shoop then because she was still maturing facially (unless you're actually claiming people's faces don't grow/change from 16-21). I then said that losing weight would
make her face look better. But she's never going to look as good without shoop as she did circa 2012 after her Japan debut when they were actually styling her and she was still thin and cared about herself. >>270155
I see you also think everyone looks the same at 21 as they do at 16 because what is puberty, amirite
literally the only difference are bangs and teeths even MORE yellow lmao
she just needs therapy, that would make her look better

I went on Netflix and watched episode 1 and now I can't unsee it. 21 year old Dakota looks like 42 year old Drew Barrymore, but with much less effort and grooming.

Wow, you're so personally offended, lol why?
Drew looks like crap but she's also in her 40s and has had drug problems in the past. Saying it's unfair that dacote looks like her because the pic comparing the two was shooped? Lol, what a reach. A candid of drew still looks better than a kootershoop, both her own and the ones her employers shit out in an attempt to make her look less like a blown out has-been.

>>270746>if you chose a bad pic of yourself and compared it to a photoshopped celebrity you'd look bad as well
I would, but I'm not a ~model~ and I don't lie about what I look like by changing my entire bone structure and outward appearance in photoshop.
Dakota looks like shit because she looks like shit. She does. Getting mad isn't going to change that. Nobody forced her to get fat, nobody forced her to stop wearing makeup and nobody forced her to let herself turn into a lazy, gross slob who can hardly get work without looking like a middle aged woman in her candids. She has no business being a model, she's a shitstain on Bravo's roster. You can't say every pic of her that she doesn't post herself is just "unfortunate angles" or "just not a very flattering pic" and then continue to insist she's a real, legitimate model. She only gets decent quality work when they can put her in a crowd in something baggy, andnwhen they do show her face it's shit like >>266714
. It's sad when the legit Bravo-tier jobs she gets make her look like such shit, and you know
they already tried to shoop her to look better. I'd hate to be whoever gets stuck with her as a model, I'd feel ripped off paying for that
Lol, who the fuck would recognize her on the street ? Those that do post pictures with/of her out and about she makes them post a shooped version. Or she deletes them out of her tags.
I wouldn't be surprised if she also did what Taylor does and just turns notifications on for friends rather then actually follow them. Dakota seems fairly private with what little of a life she has.
Kinda sick of the "everybody photoshop in the model industry" comment. You know you need high res pics to print and those graphic designers probably don't have that much time on their hands to liquefy her whole face without it looking wonky AND still have a good enough picture to print ?
Plus it's easy to make someone appear relatively slimmer when they're already slim and the clothes look good on them. It's almost impossible to make a stuffed sausage looks good like she did on the Tiara Milly one.
They only make efforts for really famous people like Britney Spears cause they don't want to hurt her image. They don't give much crap about c-list models, their job is to make it look good without resorting to too much editing and waste people's time.

Found a few pics on Twitter of Dakota with Yoko
god what happened
she needs a new manager
I'm sure Yula got her this gig. The article that the vid was in mentioned an idol group called Magical Punch Line with Yula&Kota as members (probably just the name of the "group" in the commercial).
Have another video, Dako dances in the back of the group again & has the smallest character role of the group.
*nearly flash the camera, my bad.
Same dance with another girl. I'd lose my mind having to do this type of stuff over and over again tbh.

Considering how many people in Dakota threads are too lazy to even read the previous threads or use the catalog, it doesn't really matter. Hence the sage. Learn to love the sage.
All her recent jobs she side by side with a Ham beast and/or in baggy clothing.
The angles and editing they did on her in the shoop makes her look like a MTF in mid transitioning.

though it might just looked shooped due to the fucking blinding amount of contrast
So they keep her in the back and have her be one of the first to leave.
Well.. at least she's actually smiling and kind of trying in these. But I suppose that could just be whoever is in charge stressing her to smile and act like she gives a shit.>>271381
She seems okay in these too (personality wise, not looks… never looks…)
2 days late to reply, but lol anon, are you aware girls typically hit puberty at age 11?? 16 is already a "late bloomer" for boys, for girls it's extremely late. so I hope not suggesting Dakota hit puberty sometime between age 16 and 21 lmao.
also hate to blog, but as another anon who replied said too, I also haven't changed since I was 16 either, and I'm Dakota's age.

Not blue but Tiara Mily shoop. Most of the terrible ones happened when she first started working for them until they tweaked the shoop just right. Tiara Mily was one of the greatest offenders in terms of clients trying and failing to match Koots nihon fetus shoops.

face shoop fail here
God, I loved these, they're hilarious. For god's sake, Kota herself could have done an 100 times better job at shooping that. The jagged white pixels on the edge of the pink dress though. Just awful!
I'm wondering, why did they even decide to shoop the dresses on her? Did they not have those outfits at the shoot and were just that lazy? It seems to me like shooping them on would take more time anyway though and not only that but it looks terrible.
Is it possible that Toots rocked up to the shoot and couldn't fit into any of their stuff because of her false measurements? It does kinda seem like they shot her in her underwear or a bikini or something. Super weird.
wtf they just… what???
did they try to liquefy her but it ruined the print on the dress so much that they just… Pasted the dress back on? what happened here… wow lol
I just caught up on this thread and was going to throw this in there too…
I've been following them both online since I was like 14 and I'm the same age as Kiki, so it's be
