No-one wants to log into Stardoll and see *gasp!* this:
So, my superstardom ran out… again.
I only pay monthly [even though it probably is more expensive in the long run], and honestly I don’t want to give Stardoll all that money to have a year code, it doesn’t appeal to me. Plus, I doubt my parents would be happy if I suddenly asked for $70aud [or however much it is] to be a “Superstar” for a year on a virtual website, seeing as though I can’t buy that much on my mobile.
So, what to do, what to do?
I have two options.
Buy Superstar, or don't.
I'm the sort of person who looks at the pro's and cons, evaluates each option, then decides. It's the logical thing to do. And that's me right, all logic [most of the time ;D].
What will buying Superstar honestly get me?
200sd and being able to say [if I wish too anyways] "I've got a gold star*!! Love me! Visit me!". *Because I buy monthly I'm not even in the so-called "Royalty" club.
It also entitles me to buy any of the overpriced graphics [and they are honestly, just graphics] they call clothes. And really, my medoll already has like quadruple the amount of clothes I have. What's to say she needs more?
Plus, I'm allowed to use their broadcasting system. On the old stardoll, I used to use it lots, it was fantastic! Nowadays, when I broadcast, I get what? Three, four people? [the last time I sent a broadcast was three months ago? Correct me if I'm wrong.]
And I can use the superstar only hair, the superstar only mouth, the superstar only skin. Stardoll! Honestly! It's superstar only this! Superstar only that!
I especially love this quote I found on Brit-On-Me's presentation:
I loved it. :D
Oh, and I can also design stuff and sell my old clothes in the Starbazaar. Unfortunately this doesn't apply to me, I fail at designing and I can't bear to part with any clothes, no matter how ugly!
And let's not forget, by buying superstar, we're signing up for horrible customer service! If we're ever hacked, who's going to save the day? Not Stardoll, for sure. It's like we need insurance for virtual clothes these days.
Why is continuing to buy superstar pointless?? [for me anyways].
Because, I can do everything I've done in the past, exactly the same right now as a non-superstar. I can read blogs, I can create outfits, I can write, I can make graphics and I can talk to my friends... none of these things are affected by me being Superstar or not, and they are the things I come onto Stardoll for. Sure I can't use my favourite hair, or have the latest clothes, but all those things are superficial.
So, I'm going to continue being non-superstar, at least for a little while, and see if it makes any difference to me.
...Who wants to start the bets on how long I'll last?
PS: A little spoiler for tonight's release!!

Ask yourself, when will you want to say no to Stardoll?
That's a question I have just now recently asked myself. But to be serious, when?
Added on to the collectors bug, the need of LE & Antidote, and the want to feed off our Stardoll social lives and society, it gets hard to picture yourself leaving the website itself. Really, to be honest, only reason I am still on Stardoll is because I love the Stardoll we made, not Stardoll.com themselves. I love to read gossip blogs, look at magazines and fashion lines, and I love a party or too. And for the most part, the friends you've made though Stardoll! Its okay to have friends, no matter how far they are, they can always be your buddy.
But everyday I notice more members actually permanently leaving for good.. which is saddening, but, is actually something I am okay to accept. We have two lives, real life, and Stardoll life. Weird right? But its true! Don't actually tell me in real life your closet is as big(or small) as it is on Stardoll, or that you dye your hair everyday, or is actually that dark(or light!) skinned when you are not. And the number one thing that I think is that, just because you are popular on Stardoll doesn't mean you are in real life! And vice versa, give or take.
But really, you can't say you don't like this fantasy we live in, now can you? I mean really, you right now reading this post, if you deny that fact that you like your Stardoll fantasy life, then why are you still on Stardoll? You are saying you don't like the endless outfit combinations or choices, to be whatever you want to be, the socialization, or the blogging? Get real.
On Stardoll you can be another person, you can be yourself! Its what you make it. Some people are more open, and not afraid to show their faces, and some, we still ponder their look and type. But truly, you can't prove them right or wrong, so why bother.
But then eventually on Stardoll, sadder things happen.. Some girls(or boys) may become extremely addicted to the site.. BUT, that is something you can't really stop from starting, people are addicted to anything, including internet programs/websites. But those addictions lead to loss of social life in real life, back problems, carpal tunnel, even depression! And while on the flip side, we may have to just.. let go. Now, personally, if I wanted to leave Stardoll, I believe I could.. But there are those who are in love(give or take about what part) with Stardoll, not just as a website, but at what they have been given to view and perceive as fun. But then there is when you get older, you may grow a bigger social life, fall in love, go to college, get a job, start a family, lose family, and many other reasons a person would depart from the site.
We will all grow old of it, when will you?
P.s.Click the ad below if interested! And please spread the word! :D
The fashion line, Lisa Couture, made by the lovely Lisa Earsley(IrishLily09), has just been released after the final releases of Stardoll Fashion Week. Sadly the brand was unable to be apart of the activities, but it still is a line highly worthy of attention!
P.s. Your thoughts of the SFW events?
Your thoughts of this line?
In the Dollywood world of blogging, it's synonymous to a highway to success.
Well... if you play it correctly that is. *chuckle*
Perezstargossip as we all know is the pioneer of this craft.
She managed to open the possibility to other Dollywood writers to have access to limitless possibilities through blogging
Last night, blogger failed for me. Stellar presenting work from Noj and Ciara, but the scheduled release of WOE RTW didn't happen. I apologise to you all, but mostly to Egle. I checked and checked but it didn't happen. It has now bee released, check it out HERE.
And now, one dropout. Coconut will NOT be released tonight. As you know, I've been strapped for time recently so simply haven't been able to create anything at all, nevermind anything presentable. I apologise to Noj here, my long suffering co-owner. But all is not lost!! Our autumn winter collection will NOT die silently, a spoiler will be released tonight, and a full collection is to follow in a very special event we have planned.. but that's all I can say.
Now, onto more pleasant things. THE NIGHT!! Party going on AS WE SPEAK over at FashionWeekSD [a new venue next season, I swear. I hate the lag as much as you do....], and the final collection [and hopefully a mag or two!!] will be released. And straight after, the moment I know all the designers will be looking forward to.
THE SFW EXCELLENCE AWARDS!!
The second the last collection graces the runway, the poll link will be available for you to decide. You can now ALL vote for winners, so make your choices carefully!
Remember, you haven't long now to buy from our fabulous stardesigners, and our LOTTERY tickets will cease sale tomorrow midday GMT, so buy fast!!
See you over there!!

(Click on the picture to apply!)
As you can see from the post tittle and pictures, WOE is looking for their collections permanent face, Egle (vampire_) and Emily (pirata111) will choose 2 or 3 permanent models and looking to their already released collections (which I honestly, do love) I can say that whoever those 2 or 3 models are, will be very lucky to model for WOE!
Now tell me, how's everyone enjoying SFW?
Isn't it an amazing project?
