No reviews, shoddy photoshop, "$0.00" prices that are 44% off of zero, stolen stock photos, and terrible model shoots against that awful grey background with a model who's not remotely in Lolita. I call M*lanoo! I posted the link to the shops list, but has that been updated at all recently?

This site is promoting a "Sign up with us and get FREE Lolita dresses!" Anyone been seeing ads for them anywhere? It all smells very very fishy...

I spy, with my little eye, stolen brand photos. So yes, they are to be avoided.

I glanced at their FB and I think the whole "free dress" banner is a poorly worded advert trying to get people to enter their give away for a free dress, which involves liking them on FB and stuff.

Speaking of which, I just noticed that they stole their header from hello lace? http://www.facebook.com/WorkshopMall?ref=hl

That definitely is a photo that I see from Hellolace. They have a stolen description of Lolita from Lolitafashion.org, too.

Uh WHAT THE FUCK lol. Don't steal my headers. :( :( I spent a long time making those, lol. Goddamnit.

A couple of them are watermarked as "FT Cline" which I believe is them, so I guess so.

Well it's certainly milanooesque.

another one that's not on the list. dangit, but they're sneaky.

I posted a comment to put it on the list, but I don't know if that's being kept up anymore...

Lol, they e-mailed me a week ago about wanting to advertise their "high quality clothing site" on hello lace in very weird broken English, lol. Milanoo or not, I'd stay clear of it. xD

Nice. I say we should all buy $1,000 worth of "high quality clothing." What do you say? XD

I should do that and and burn it in front of their factory for stealing my website banner. D: < Man, I wish these sites would just give up and die out already, sigh. Wonder if they even really sell anything. Hard to know, since every other review is most likely a sockpuppet. /o/

I'm pretty sure that's Milan00. Lolita with stolen stock photos? Check. Cosplay costumes? Check. Wedding? Check. Zentai? Check. Text stolen from a legit lolita blog? Check.
A lolita outfit is composed of basic key elements. These can be broken down into: headwear, blouse, bell-shaped skirt, undergarment, legs, and footwear. Each element is essential in creating the proper lolita aesthetic, but as you will see, there is much room for variety within them. Although none of these can be called absolute necessities, remember that coordinating a lolita outfit is a bit like making a cake. You can take away or replace a couple of ingredients, but if you take away the butter, the sugar, and the milk, it just stops being a cake.

What does the address prove/disprove? I am not sure I understand :/
13th-Nov-2012 02:14 pm (UTC)
Well if we could find out Milanoo's address they might marry up?

(Sorry about the late comment.) It's not Milanoo but it's probably just as bad.
