Still a long day while left, but considering the negative attention it attracted I think it already deserves its own thread.

If this is true, then some new questions pop up, among them the question if they have any previous experience with arranging events.

They also released some details on this whole pre-sale ticket thing and apparently those eligible for pre-sale tickets can buy up to 5 tickets but every ticket holder of those must also be eligible for pre-sale. So you can't just buy a lot of tickets for your whole comm if you are eligible but they are not, if I understand that correctly. No idea how they want to check that though.

Unlikely. The best thing for a company/group to do in this situation is to admit mismanagement and follow through with transparency going forward.

People being cunts about big events like this are why we don’t have TPC in the U.K. any more. Keep it up and we’ll lose SFE too.

I really hope the organisers keep doing their shit despite this,but I understand why they choose to stop given that poorfags LARPing as lolitas love coming on here and whining about everything.

>> No.10035556

It’s literally a German law that they can’t help having to follow. Why would they do it otherwise? It would be stupid to make things more difficult than necessary. Also it’s not that hard to send an email, damn. Not even any commitment needed to spend money, just send an email.

I suspect this thread is full of salty fuckers who know they won’t get in on the presale. Cry more.

>> No.10035563

>It’s literally a German law
They didn't specify what law that was. Read the previous lolita general. If there is such law, they are probably trying to make it a private event, thus cutting costs and avoiding paper work.

>> No.10035570

Why would you not cut costs and paperwork? These events are volunteer run and not for profit. People have full time jobs and want to give attendees the best value for money that they can.

>> No.10035573

I think you don't understand. They aren't rying to give attendees the best value, they're trying to get around the law by not making it a full fledged event, just a private one. I think it's the only explanation for why they would need these e-mails. If that's not the case, that's great. If it is, it can get really bad for everyone attending. Why they wouldn't say what paragraph it is makes the whole case suspicious.

>> No.10035575

I second that, I don’t see the problem really. I don’t know yet if I can get a ticket or not but I hope I do and I look forward to the event

>> No.10035578

If they don't make it a private event, that means anyone has the right to buy a ticket and come. That means they can't just refuse people entrance the way they did at Under The Sea.

>> No.10035580

Maybe they don’t really need the emails but just want to see who is attending to make sure people like you don’t come to the event?

This is correct, I am friends with one of the organizers and she told me that last time they had issues with banned people showing up and a security person had to step in and remove them from the venue

>> No.10035584

but they market the event as something that's not just for lolitas, but for anyone interested in jfashion in general. but yeah if someone is banned from a comm, they can't legally refuse to sell that person a ticket if it's a public event.

Look, either you're a friend of the organiser or someone who has been to the events before and gets presale priority. The event has been handled so badly, just because it's happening doesn't mean we aren't allowed to criticise the very poor execution.

>> No.10035974

The problem is the lacking transperancy. Nobody would complain if were a bit more specific not only about the law issue but anything else as well.
As things are now people are presented with organizers that don't give clear answers and a ticket system that seems unfair and easy to cheat. Not only that but information generally isn't clear cut and not easy to find. Instead anything is vauge or drowned in a wall of text, torn between two FB pages and a lot is hidden in the comments.
A little more info packed short and clear about the whole event and complaints would end.
Posting a FAQ with simple, clear answers to the questions people obviously have, pin that post and a lot of problems would be solved.

>> No.10035977

I don't know why someone would actively seek out cgl if they were so sensitive to the slightest criticism. I'm as bothered by the lack of SFE transparency as anyone else, but I hope she looks after herself. If they're trying to sort through things, browsing cgl is definitely not keeping spirits high.

Any guesses for the guest announcement tomorrow? I don't think it'll be AP since they were in London last year, maybe Baby or IW? Wasn't Isobe in Finland for Hellocon a few years ago? It'd be pretty cool.

So are all the organizers of Street Fashion Europe just Americans now? I keep seeing Americans post updates about the event in all of the SFE groups. Some “European” event.

SFE has grown bigger than just European Lolitas for some reason. There are US and Aus people involved, maybe even more that we don't know about yet.
It doesn't really bother me much, but it's definitely strange. I can't blame someone for wanting to work with friends or people they know and can trust.

I feel bad saying it, but I'm underwhelmed by the guest announcements. I love Imai Kira but I've met her twice at European events already, and I'm not as excited as I probably should be for Atelier Pierrot. Like >>10038033
said, the hype they were building suggested that they were going to announce something much bigger.

Are you seriously bitching that friends are meeting up and doing things without inviting entire communities? Friend activities aren't public events, why on earth would you get salty about something like this?

If I was going to visit lolita friends abroad and do something fun, I sure as shit wouldn't invite their local comm or put out a public invite. Are you crazy?

>> No.10039740

Yeah that rubbed me the wrong way. From the start, it has seemed like SFE is trying to centralise all the EU events and have one big event a year instead of communities holding their own events and inviting their own guests. They definitely tried to take the spotlight from that event (can't remember which one it was).

I quite like the smaller events so I hope this doesn't discourage anyone. Sure, I love the idea of huge parties with champagne and roses cascading down castle staircases and exciting guests, but small dos with indie brands and a chance to talk to new people are so much more fun to me as I spend more time in the fashion.

Maybe she's friends with a lot of them but doesn't get an invite.. Otherwise I don't know how she knows about these ""events""

I don’t care about guest as much as I care about meeting friends and event activities. So I am happy that this event will be smaller and have more activities where you can talk and get to know people. I have never been to Germany but it was always on my bucket list. Maybe I wear a Dirndl coord lol

Germany also has had events with small indie brands but I don't remember what that was called?

Anon is probably talking about Halloween haus or something that they saw a few pictures of, some people who attended posted about it on insta.

Anon, if you're not getting an invite, there's probably a reason for it, and it might be tied to bitching on cgl about people you want to be "friends" with. You sound like you're trying to famewhore, and that shit don't fly with more low-key, older groups of lolitas.

>> No.10039757

Yea anon might be over reacting but I kind of understand where they r coming from. I follow mossmarchen on Instagram and Facebook and she hosts one of these secret events and rubs it in everyone’s face every Halloween. Facebook statuses and posting photos of her and her group of people that she invited. I get that these are her friends but it would be nice if they would open up more and be less exclusive.

Is there any proof of this actually happening though? Aside from people anonymously saying that it has happened. To be honest I wouldn't put it past people lying about getting tickets when they haven't attended events to rile more people up about the ticketing system.

Nobody has submitted any screenshots, so it does just seem like anonymous hearsay. This system does seem confusing, but I’m willing to bet there’s some method to the madness. Or I hope so, anyway. I hope there are still tickets left for us who didn’t make the pre-sale, though I’ve given up hope on attending the tea party if the organizers have been parsing through hundreds of registration emails.

VM would be awesome. Would love to see a diverse style line up for the fashion show.

This comm has a lot of drama and changed mod team several times if btb is to be believed. The organiser of Under the Sea is not even a mod there anymore.

I know someone said the person who organised Hellocon is also part of the SFE team, but it was shady and unnecessary of SFE to suddenly announce something after being quiet for so long, on the exact same day as Hellocon started ticket sale.

>> No.10041213

It sounds like if you have been to all 4 you get a presale. Otherwise you can get it for being a volunteer, donating before, old organizer, etc. So the pool is smaller than what you guys think. I highly doubt 300 people are in this pool of people. And you can only get extra tickets for people who registered so it isn’t a free for all.

>> No.10041225

I haven't seen proof of people who only went to 1-2 events getting a pre-sale link. Only people who went to all 4 or volunteered.

I just think it's weird to thank people who have been to the event 4 times, as if they're superior to people who just started wearing lolita last year, or lolitas who couldn't attend all previous events because they couldn't get a ticket. I've been wearing lolita for over 5 years but I didn't even know SFE existed until la Vie en Rose. That's not my fault, that's their failure to promote Enchanted well.

I've been to 3 of their events but I didn't email them. Maybe if I really love the guests I'll try to get a ticket secondhand, but so far it doesn't feel like this event will be as good as Omnia Vanitas, which was my favourite SFE event so far. Thank you for reading my blog.

>> No.10041226

I honestly appreciate the SFE events and always had a good time when I attended. It's sad that the organizers do such a poor job at communicating why they make certain decisions and act so offended and immature when someone offers criticism. This leads to so much drama that would be totally unnecessary and easily avoided (except for the ungrateful bitches that whine why the event isn't in their neighborhood or that the tickets are expensive, but those people are easily ignored). But several people had legitimate questions that should be answered with a little more transparency and instead they get passive aggressive vague posting. SFE are not professionals and nobody expects them to be 100% professional at all times but acting in a mature way in front of your customers is not too hard. I get that sometimes you need to vent but do it in private like the rest of us. What saddens me most is that I usually would tell them this directly without the need of posting anonymously on stupid cgl but despite claiming to want things said to their faces they react poorly to direct critique. I want to attend the event because I am sure it will be great so I do not want the people in charge to hold a grudge against me. Maybe they read this and take some points to heart. You are doing a great job just your communication needs some work!

Lol Halloween Haus has been run pretty much similar to how everyone is thinking this event is being run. MossMarchen does invites in waves, starting from the most desirable/valuable people, then if they can't make it, the lesser tier people or fillers so she can make the deposit for the haus. It is definitely favoritism and it seems her group is now taking over this event and running it the same way. Also if you dare ever miff her or do something against her will, she will blacklist her from her events like some weird lolita mob boss. She's also stolen designs she never paid for and still uses for her brand.

>> No.10042264

Lol Haus is run pretty much the same way everyone think this event is being run. Marchen sends out invites by waves, starting with the most favorable/popular people. Then if there is spots to be filled, she'll start ranking people from the lesser/filler section to make sure she gets her deposit fulfulled for haus. Marchen has been this terrible and vapid person for years, blacklisting people or being super passive aggressive to people who ever crossed her in the slightest. She also never paid for the illustrations that she uses for her brand, she's just a terrible person in general, but everyone she surrounds herself with is still drinking that shitty koolaid.

>> No.10042270

Was it Moss Marchen that posted a "please pm me" on Violet Fane's latest release post on insta? It was on a post featuring the quote "love perfected by death" on a new VF dress, I wonder is she salty because she has the same quote on enamel pins? I hope I'm just reading into this too much and it's actually no big deal.

I'm pretty sure the images she uses are public domain (please correct me if I'm wrong), but the craftmanship just doesn't seem all that great other than the enamel pins. She also jumped hardcore onto the embroidered brooch/pendant thing as soon as My Inspiration started getting popular.

I'm not sure which one it was exactly as I distanced myself from her, but it was definitely one she commissioned from a fellow friend that confirmed never being paid for it.

It's very eerie and she has been doing this for many years, I'm not the first nor the last and there's already a grouping number of people she already burned that don't associate with her anymore.

Seems pretty ballsy to attack VDD, I always got the impression that the VDD designer was fairly well respected.

I'm almost sure it was the same group of people that dragged Hello Bones Jones through the dirt for daring to have brooches that were a little similar to PepFox. Ohtralala definitely made a huge deal out of it and everyone rallied around her. It was a shame, I really wanted one of their bunny umbrella brooches.

>> No.10042285

Yeah, Moss Marchen has a tendency to usually send out her goons to attack her brand competition. That's what she did to me and a friend of mine to go after VDD. I also went after Lockshop for literally making exact replicas of MossMarchen's necklaces, but to be fair that's probably just a replica of a Juliette et Justine necklace as well.

What was it like to be one of her goons? I don't mean this in a condescending way, but were you friends with her once or how did you get involved?

>> No.10042291

I was friends with her a good amount of years, we were pretty close or so I thought. This was before her brand even started, not saying she didn't always act this way but I think with her brand ballooning it gave her the power and confidence to be more open about how she treats other people. I definitely won't say it wasn't great, she always let her close group know first when tickets for her tea parties were going up or when she was doing a sales post on lj. But as she got more obsessed with her brand, she started treating me and other people worse and worse, and it got to the point I couldn't handle being friends with her anymore. She also gossips about everyone behind their back, even if you think you're the closest bosom buddies with her, because sorry but you're not. A lot of people still choose to stick around with her even if they get mistreated by her, because they still want that inclusiveness, and those who haven't will just respond with "Well that never happened to me personally with MossMarchen." If you wonder why the New York City group is in such a mess from a few years ago, I definitely would not say she wasn't a part of that.

>> No.10042293

I'm so sorry she treated you like that, sounds awful. I don't understand what people get from sticking with people who are openly awful. I guess they feel like they're part of some super special club, and that's what that whole group feels like from the outside.

There's a huge problem with people like that getting away with shit in the Lolita community (and in other hobbies too ofc). Plenty of people who essentially have Public Figure status in this niche community who abuse their influence and get away with it.

>> No.10042299

It's okay, it seems I'm just doomed to attract these types of people. I also tried calling out a manipulative and crazy pathological liar out on the west coast and ended up getting kicked out of their community. It's very odd to see these types of people and how easily they can manipulate and convince others to believe in whatever they say. This person apparently accused me of posting her real address online, when I don't even remember where she lives because I honestly didn't care about her anymore even at that point in time. But this is how far people are willing to go to attack others that see through their bullshit. Also I know Alex from SFE is good friends with MossMarchen because she flew all the way from Germany just to attend Halloween Haus. That's some crazy commitment right there.

I am wondering if the registration is due to avoid the registration of the event at German authorities which is necessary for big public events. If they have the mails they could claim it is private.

Just going by the poster count (at least 70 people in this thread) people probably aren't trolling. People have legitimate reasons to get stuff off their chest about the organisation methods, I don't know about anyone else but the reason I'm on cgl to do it anonymously is because publicly saying that it sounds fishy is a bad move.
Much as I'd love to publicly say on the event page that this all feels off, SFE organisers hold a lot of social power within the Lolita community and I don't want to be witch hunted or blacklisted.

As for the WhiteKnight anons, I'm willing to bet at least one organiser has posted in the thread. They've been watching it, and even before this specific thread one organiser said she couldn't handle the "negative backlash" online and everyone was meanies etc. when really people just wanted answers. I can't blame them for wanting to defend themselves, some anons in this thread have gotten waaay off topic and are just going in for fruitless personal attacks, but if it is who I think it is, please spend more time making your event look less sketchy.

You might not belive it but in Germany it's actually not rare to not have a CC as a young adult. We love to pay everything in cash, or just using our debit card for everything. Most people I know only got a CC after they landed their first secure job and after they knew they are stable enough for bigger purchases. I personally didn't own a CC until I was 22. Before that I usually asked my parents to lend me their CC for booking flights etc. I know this seems retarded, but again it's not uncommon here and it's just what many people do.

Not gonna reveal too much but i was a fledgling indie brand repeatedly anonymously attacked by those 'MM goons', (you may have been one of them) and I just wanna get it off my chest that it was super fucked up and caused a lot of fear/paranoia for a few years. She accused me of copying something of hers. The items in question were not replicas, but I stepped on her toes and that was that. Many of her friends/those she affiliates with distanced themselves from me before I'd ever formally met them, some even unfollowing my business page because of that kind of gossip, making it many times harder to grow a fanbase in an already niche community. So I'm glad you've stepped away from doing that 'attack dog' stuff now but just know that doing things like that really does have negative consequences on the people who are wrongfully on the other side of the attack, since I never copied her to begin with. I hope it never happens again, and I'm concerned she's still doing this with other indie brands as well.

She also posted screenshots that incriminated her for trying to get into a previous SFE event without paying. She was trying to paint the organisers as bad guys by posting evidence that she herself is a sketchy character. Incredible.

>> No.10043604

I don’t think the organisers said anything fishy. If anything it’s now clearer that the pre-ref system was indeed to keep out banned people and creepers, which seems sensible.

The TL;DR of the screenshots was that the organisers decided the K girl had done enough bad shit to warrant having her pre-sale access revoked (she’s not banned, and can still get normal sale tickets).

Okay, but then couldn't they just have said "we'd like people to register with us so we can verify they participate in the jfashion community"? I don't think anyone could have an issue with that, and even if they did, it makes the issue so much more clear cut.

I’m amazed they gave her pre-sale access despite trying to sneak in without paying to a past event.

I agree it would have been good to state from the start, but I suspect the result would be the same, people would still accuse the organisers of choosing friends. At least it is now out in the open.

I think there wouldn't have been so much salt against them if that "thank you" presale was just for volunteers. Making it for people who attended events previously was a mistake and hurt a lot of German lolitas.

>> No.10043644

That's exactly it.
Plus attending 1, 2 or 3 previous events was not considered enough past support although someone donating or volunteering just once would qualify for pre-sale.

It doesn't help that most of the VIP tickets were already gone even before the pre-sale went live because they set them aside for volunteers.

Not exactly. Volunteers didn't have to worry about buying in the presale round (so in theory this could be someone without the previous support criteria). The presale was for previous volunteers, contributors, 4 event attendees on the other hand.

>> No.10043683

By volunteers, do you mean organisers of this event? Because if so, it makes sense that they get tickets first as they do need to be there.

>> No.10043688

This so much. I really would have loved to, but I just wasn't able to attend all previous events because deaths in my family and other shit in my life happening which prevented me from doing so. This criteria that you had to be at all previous events is ridiculous. People have lives, shit happens. Having the time to travel to a different country on a very short notice every fucking year is unrealistic for some (if not most) people. That doesn't mean that we are not supportive. The times I was able to attend their events I got the most expensive ticket option and spent hundres of Euros on vendors. Still not enough support I guess.
And now that they have introduced this system that it matters at how many previous events you have been (that in fact you have to have been at all previous events) and in case they are going to keep it, those people that got first dibs this year will also get first first dibs every year to come. And those people that weren't able to get a ticket this year will have even less chances to get a ticket next year. New lolitas can only dream of ever being part of this. Got luck fighting for the last few tickets that are left!

>> No.10043693

I also think that's really weird and kind of mean to the people who couldn't get tickets previously. Thank you pre-sale for making it even more difficult for people to attend who have always wanted to go. It's not like people who went to all 4 events did it to "support SFE", those people just have more freedom to travel and had better luck in previous ticket sales.

You can't really make new friends at such an event though. There isn't opportunity to socialise with people you've never met, unless by coincidence you sit next to someone at some point who is by herself (and speaks the same language as you). But during the activities you don't talk with anyone, you have to be quiet to listen to the guests, and the rest of the time you just walk around with your friends and take pictures.

Those brands/guests were at omnia vanitas and under the sea both. They are returning guests because they had a good, worthwhile experience at previous SFE events.
