So yes. Most of you lovely people out there knew that I attended a party last night dressed as Lady Gaga.
It was a music bash party, featuring music on-the-go downloads on the new iPhone application called DIGI Music Play by DiGi 🙂
Thumbs up to them!
Looks like Gaga found her music on the iPhone app too! 😀
Anyway, since lotsa people asked me how I did the look (don't know why you ask me actually, as I'm not a pro make up artist at all. Much much more talented people on YouTube you can learn from), I will show you briefly how I did it. 🙂
1. After your liquid foundation and lose powder, put on the closest you can to Lady Gaga's extravagant eye make up and blend the colours of your eyeshadow. I used Electric Blue and white shimmery powder on my upper lids and Purple/Dark Pink shades to feather them out and on the lower lids as well.
It takes lotsa time to blend it to a perfect finish. Darken as close to your lashlines as possible with black eyeliner.
Webcam pictures doesn't do justice for proper visual details, sorry 🙂
2. Draw her signature lighting bolt lightly, with the fine felt tip of your eyeliner brush first. You want to get the correct shape of the huge lighting bolt. Can't afford mistakes because that's gonna make you wipe off everything and start from scratch!
Yes messy house – usually like this after examinations 🙂
3. Take a step back and look at yourself further, in a bigger picture. You might notice some crooked edges of your lighting bolt, so refine and sharpen the edges to make it as straight and perfect as possible.
4. Darken your lighting bolt with a black liquid eyeliner.
5. Load up on your lashes. Curl them and apply plenty of mascara and falsies 🙂
6. Put on a dark pink/red lipstick + gloss (Not obvious on this webcam photo)
7. After putting on your wig cap, put on your blonde wig. Find the long straight ones with bangs in front.
Two options to zhng up your new long, blonde hair
a) Tie a hair bow
b) Wear her signature huge headphones
8. Wrap the wires and cables of the headphones around your neck
9. Wear a pair of satin black gloves
10. Bring out your silver lighting bolt that you have prepared earlier. I made mine out of styrofoam and glittery silver fabric. You can use any material to make this bolt, cardboard, aluminium foil, silver paper or anything .
If you're too lazy, turn a store upside down and buy it. 😛
FINALLY, take another step back and camwhore!
What better way to look at your own photo to judge how you look? 🙂 You can always fix it if you spot any mistakes
Obviously, before you put on any make up, make sure you have on your long top (I used the one my best friend bought for me as a gift from UK) and your liquid black shiny leggings. Pair if all off with a pair of boots.
And I'm ready to adjourn! 🙂 On my way to Zouk now.
The Fame Monster, Lady Gaga has arrived 😀
OK SO HERE COMES THE SERIOUS PART.
Before I begin, lemme assure everyone that there is no offense meant to anyone and should anyone take offense, then please, don't get your panties tied up in knots or get sand in your boxers because of me. This is just a sincere account of how I felt last night.
The reason why I'm typing this is because I'm just so tired and fed up of answering everyone asking me BBM-ing, DM-ing, Whatsapp-ing and MSN-ing me regarding "how come I didn't win" the title of Best Dressed at the party last night.
That, and I also don't feel like talking about it anymore nor repeat myself.
Didn't win, didn't win la! Winning ain't everything.
I know you guys care and was in disbelief that's why you asked in the first place, but believe me… I was also just as shocked upon knowing.
No point telling me anymore that (Not my words. Quoting from everyone) I "should have won" or my "outfit was better" or how "all the efforts put into crazy dressing up gone to waste" or "how can a flamboyant look lose to something so minimal".. etc. I've heard all of that from everyone and well, what can I say?
The judges decision was final – whether or
not it was "always the smarter choice".
Allow me to clarify. My issue here is affirmatively not about my loss.
I am certainly not a sore loser and I acknowledge that in a contest, there is always a winner and losers
But here's where my dissatisfaction comes in –
HOW CAN 3 OTHER WELL DRESSED PEOPLE LOSE TO SOMEONE WHO DRESSED UP THE LEAST??
I'm sorry, but can you see the difference in the effort put in for each costume dress-ups?
It's ridiculous! The judges must've been shot in the eyeballs or have grime stuck on their cornea adversely affecting their vision.
Not intending to boast, but I'm giving you an honest account of what happened. The moment I walked into the Zouk, I was greeted with positive comments, non-stop requests for photo taking, cheers of support from people I don't even know and very nice encouraging compliments from everyone.
Nevermind the fact that I walked from my condo down to my car looking like that, attracting baffled stares.
Nevermind the fact that I somewhat shocked other drivers in the cars to my left and right while driving to the venue.
Nevermind the fact that I wasn't "allowed" into the premises until carpark attendants and security guards had their pictures taken of me.
NEVERMIND all that.
Because, as long as there is someone better dressed up than me, then all the above doesn't matter anymore as I would admit defeat and wave the white flag with pride. Clearly if someone had put more effort than I did, the better dressed up contestant deserves to win the Best Dressed prize 🙂
Fair and square.
Here's where my next issue comes in. What's the title category up for grabs here?
Not Best Dance, not Most Simple Costume, not Best Performance, nor Best Impersonation
it's BEST DRESSED. In case you are visually disadvantaged like them, lemme reiterate.
BEST DRESSED. BEST DRESSED. DRESSED.
You tell me, which part of an "outfit" consisting of normal shoes, short black tights and a long sleeved black tee (probably taken from own wardrobe) apparently coming dressed as Lady Gaga can upstage that of fully dressed contestants comprising rented wigs, heavy character make up, fancy character accessories and complete costumes from head to toe?
What happened to BEST DRESSED??
Let me assert that this is nothing personal and that I have completely no resentment towards the girl at all. I don't even know her, have never heard of her and its entirely not her fault in this matter. She can wear anything she likes to any party – heck she can even come in stark naked or dress all covered up like Mother Theresa for all I care 🙂
Thing is, IF i had lost to the two other very well dressed contestants – Elvis Presley and Marilyn Manson, I would have no qualms whatsoever and will instead, whole-heartedly congratulate the rightful winner.
I must commend Elvis Presley for his very well thought of costume, hair and props..
And three cheers for Marilyn Manson for his very similar dressing and characteristics as well.
As you can see, these were the only 2 people I took pictures with (apart from emcee Adam Lambert below) because before the Best Dressed finalists were announced, I could see that they were my clear rivals in the contest right from the start.
And we were all good of a sport to take pictures with each other despite being friendly competitors. 🙂
I could see that they also went to great lengths to rent their costumes, wigs, dressed up from head to toe, prepared props, put on character make up as well, hence very much deserving of the Best Dressed prize too.
I left with a heavy, disappointed heart but a false smile on my face – to let everyone know that I'm okay.
But I'm actually not. Far from feeling okay.
At least I knew deep down I won fair and square in winning the hearts & attention of the crowd and certainly had a better chance of wining the Best Dressed prize. Thank you to those who told me so.
All your hugs telling me that you "thought I was going to win" or "I had a closer Lady Gaga look than she did" or "that I should have won" or that I "was obviously a better dressed Lady Gaga" tonight. (Again, not my words but other's).
It's these sincere and honest words (and fair judgement) from everyone that assured me that I was among the 3 stars that very night. Thank you, each and everyone of you. It certainly meant a lot to me 🙂 Hugs.
Oh and, upon exiting, I happened to bump into Elvis Presley and he told me of how unfair he felt the results were as well. My sentiments exactly. Honestly, even HE deserved a better chance at winning that prize with his whole fancy get-up.
Sigh. The results were unfair and you know it.
Whatever man, seriously. what can I say?
I hope you see where I'm coming from in this rather long rant. I just had to get it out. My mere intentions has never been t to cyber attack anyone but rather to voice my displeasure.
On another note, the prize possession did not influence me to write this as well. I'm not hard up for it at all. It was an iPhone for goodness sake. I don't want it and I don't need it. Nothing against iPhones as well, but longtime readers of my blog would know that I'm a hardcore RIM Blackberry fangirl.
My issue raised here is just the unprofessionalism of the judging criteria.
If a category clearly states BEST DRESSED, it speaks for itself what criteria should be taken to judge
I may not be the best dancer in the world nor remotely anything close to the best singer on earth
But then again, that shouldn't have anything to do with a dress-up contest.
Let's say the finalists were narrowed down to 2 from the 4, if the judges were still undecided
then it's a good chance to let the crowd decide among the 2, also solely on that criteria
What the contestants do on stage should go under Best Impersonation or Best Performance
Whatever happened last night was beyond me. Ultimately, the judges decision was final.
Oh and next time, remind me to clad myself in very minimal & simple dressing and perform a sexy dance like an good professional dancer to win the Best DRESSED prize. Because that seemed to work compared to…..
…. the exact replica and effort like this. Doesn't impress the judges! 🙂 🙂
Uh-huh. Makes TOTAL sense now, doesn't it?
Radical, if I do say so myself 🙂
I wrote about this in my blog too
I was really really disapppointed and I left Zouk immediately after she won..
Her outfit SUCKS. NO EFFORT , NO Similarity (to lady gaga) , NO SPECIALITY .
I got my hair bleached before I went to the club ..
I applied heavy make up..
I applied nailpolish in my car…
but.. WOW…sexiness beats all effort? This is unfair =/
Same. very very disappointed and in disbelief. Like… whaddddd??? Liddat also can?
and I can’t agree more with what u said!!!! It’s exactly how i feel 🙂
Unfair but sex sells. That’s how it goes. sigh. T__T
The judges may not have seen it but you obviously won the crowd. Even people not attending the party wanted pics with you! And I can see why. The amount of care and attention to detail that you put into your costume is clear. I’m sure if you had taken a poll from the people you or Elvis or Manson would have the top score. You truly are The JessiGaga!!!
Sigh. but what to do? the results were made as such.
thanks very very much 🙂
ca-ca-jess-si-ca-aa, ma-ma-hot-ma ma. U definitely deserve to win, or at least others deserve better than her. Screw those assho judges!
hehehe thank-thank-thank-youu-u-uuu-too-too-ooh-lala. LOL
and yeah, that was exactly how i felt sigh 🙁
hai jess. i saw U at party thursday night but shy to take photo wif U. baju n mekap very nice. he3
i also thought at first U going to win. but after that girl dance then she win.
nice to meet U.
hehe hello there 🙂
alaaa. no need to be shy to take pics w me seriously. i wont bite!
thanks much ya. nice to meet u too.
and well, yeah. that’s what everyone thought also, heh. but it’s okayyy 🙂 already over. heh. =/
Well sometimes we will never know what is going on behind with the judges. I think you, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Manson deserves it one or another. I do agree that it’s not the girl’s fault. I was not there so I only could judge from pictures.
Go Jess! 🙂
exactly. so that’s why i said, sex sells. it has oways been liddat in life i guess. even in some advertising n marketing tactics, sex oways sells. i guess its a USP lor right. heh.
and yah its not her fault at all, nothing to do with her =)
just that the criteria was just very biased thats all sigh.
1st things 1st,
everytime there is a best dress contest, it always comes with other things you have to do also.
Technically if she won means she won lah, somehow from this post i feel you’re a sore loser just by doing it. It doesn’t really prove anything. whatever results the judges gave were their own opinions so yeah.
firstly, i never meant to prove anything from this post.
like i said, as a normal human being w feelings, i was sincerely upset just like the rest of the contestants too. so hence this post written to just scream what i feel.
i do feel much better now bcos everything is already over and there’s nothing anyone can do to change it 🙂 i dont intend to change it anyway heh.
and yup correct! technically, if she won, then she won lah. you’re right that this result is the judges own opinions. everyone is entitled to their opinions so this is mine 🙂 that’s the only reason why i wrote this opinion piece lor.
thanks fo sharing your opinion too sam! 🙂
Lol. how come I still feel sarcasm from the reply comment from Jess?
I meant I know you put loads of effort in the costume and make up and all and *wham* the title goes to someone else. But have you, jess, thought of it, the things and all the benefits that NN has given to you? And now that you just lost a TITLE(just a muthafucking title la jess and an iPhone which you can so afford and not that you want an iPhone), you made a hate post like this? Which you don’t do on your own blog. I can say, this is so not your style. Fame got into your head ka? LOL!
And doesn’t it sounds bad the way you described this girl? You described her like she’s some cheap bar dancing girl. For all you know, she’s a trained dancer.
and honestly, Ga Ga’s style has changed and it’s much more of a super short shorts now OR nothing at all! Probably tape on her nipples or police straps all around her. I don’t think her hair is long now as well, right? And the lighting WAS her signature, now no more?
Hurm, This are all my opinion as well and you do sound like a sore loser because like what I’ve said, this is not THE jess that would do such a post on others =(
Vic… Whats with all the NN giving her benefits and things? This is about the contest itself and whether she is or isn’t part of NN is not really connected to why she should have won? I think you are at the wrong by just throwing the not so relevant fact here…
She’s just merely voiced out her opinion that the best dressed award should be given to the person who put in a lot of effort in dressing. Its not the best performance or best sexy dance award.
heyyheyy cool it. its okayy its okayy hun.
sam n vic r both my friends and yours too. i guess from voicing my displeasure about this issue, they also hv the right to voice their displeasure lor right.
yah 3 ppl put lots of effort in dressing for Best Dressed, but i oso dunno why the other 2 didnt stand a chance to win also. hmm. also lack of talent like me perhaps.
Honest opinions, whether onot relevant or make any sense, have all been clearly put on the table now. since now all is said and done, thanks alot all 3 of u for sharing how u feel abt this matter. let’s not get it into our heads and especially our friendship okay! 🙂
just an anger post written out of emo-ness lol
Jess, are you SURE both of them are your friends? No offense to anyone btw.
Jun, i get what you mean.
like Ven, I also get what u mean.
But hey its okay, i want to get to the bottom of this and clear off any misunderstanding/issue between any party whether or not it has anything to do with this post.
Mistakes can be made and intentions can be misconstrued to negative impacts if communicated/ expressed wrongly or read the wrong way.
I care enough to fix this and make things right again. Thanks again and i’ll settle it on my side 🙂
Well Sam, Why are you even with a girl like Victoria. You deserve someone better. You made the right choice ditching her. Why return back to the same mistakes again? You like being tied by the neck and led around don’t you 😉 How’s life without freedom eh? Controlled by your super easily jealous gf. Well, in regards to your comments. I would say , i don’t agree to it? I wouldn’t exactly agree to a number of things Jess had mentioned. But it’s never directed at the girl. It’s clear to see who deserved to win. even if it’s not jess.
But then, is it wrong to blog about how we feel? Isn’t that what a blog is for? to express ourselves? Why does Jess even have to apologise to the both of you?
And victoria. All i can say is.
POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK!
In your face.
Fame got to Whose head again? Oh yours?
😮 eh why am i not surprised.
but ur not even famous. lol
Look who’s the jealous ones here. HAHA
nolah, i swear i had no intention to sound sarcastic, cos sam is my friend. why wud i wanna attack him w sarcasm wor. but if i honestly seemed to hv misled yall to think i sounded that way, im sorry babe 🙂
but yeah, it’s not a hate post u know.
just a post that i had to write outta sadness and i truly was unhappy n shocked when i found out that night. but now after a few days passed… it doesnt seem sucha pain anymore. cos life is never fair. so yeah.
and no babe, fame has never got into my head. just discontented lor with the results. so if i dont put here, where else can i put wor? just geram only so had to write something 🙁
btw, bar dancing is a profession srsly. i have friends who are real professional bar top dancers n club dancers. sadly, i dont have those skills to do that. so i know thats why i lost.
and thanks fo ur opinion too mui! 🙂 bad or good feedback, i appreciate it all the same. especially frm my own friends. cos there are times where we are all having a bad day and then when things doesnt go smoothly, anger will naturally come. so yeahlor =/
Jie, I’m glad we had a talk bout this =) You know I know you and I know you know me.. That’s all that matters.
And to the one that thinks that I don’t deserve Samuel, well, fuck you. Cause we’re 1 year together,*wham* IN YOUR FACE. You’re probably one of his friends that asked him to leave me. You know what, your plan failed and he CAME BACK to me, ASKED me back.
If you’re a girl,why ah?You like Samuel is it? Too bad bitch, he’s mine.And again, if you’re a girl, why do you think you/other girls suits him? If i don’t then he wouldn’t want me back. Get your facts right and yes you’re being a sore here cause me,jess,sam,josh have something u don’t have with us and that’s, FRIENDSHIP. That took time to build n nourish.
To Jess, I’m glad that we know each other well *hugs*
When it comes to dressing contest, it’s the significance of celebrities that gives connection to the impersonation ..
When i say “Lady GaGa” .. what comes to your mind ?
Basic T with short pants and short hair ?
come on…get your facts correct..
Hi, I’m another sore loser here.
Yes. I somehow understand there’s always “other thing” that might just come.
It’s like for eg, DxGx claims that they charge you RM5/month for unlimited download, and when they charge you extra , you can’t complain. (as you said, other things always come)
and 1st things 1st in the 1st place, is she, with her outfit, qualified to be selected EVEN to go onto the stage for the final ? you judge =]
i thought either one of u 3 going to win. did not expect her on stage. aiks
and that was really really disappointing =(
1st things 1st – whoever is chosen da winner is not the point here.
THE POINT is the winner for BEST DRESSED must AT LEAST follow the theme and any extra ‘showmanship’
is definitely a plus point. The point here is the chosen winner DID NOT meet up to the criteria thus, causing
much dissatisfaction to the crowd present.
This clearlyreflects the POOR JUDGEMENT of the judges – sungguh dissappointing n unqualified!!!
Oh sweety, you speak my words … This is SO TRUE.
jvwqxe IMHO you’ve got the right answer!
well yeah, wot to do. the judges decision is oways final. nothing anybody can do. heh.
but i guess her dancing skills were good enuf to win Best Dressed. ironic, but yeah 🙂
whatever has happened, happened 🙂 dont worry about us k?
jesicat ! u did a great one ! no worry… BB Torch is here.. u can blog better for tat.. haha… BB FAN ! woohoO~
🙂 thanks so much. the other 2 contestants Marilyn Manson n Elvis Presley did a superb job on their dressing as well! woots.
YAAAAAAAAAAAA BB TORCH OMAAAAIGGGGGGODDDD AAAAAAA!!! 😀 😀
Wow Jess, lookin hawt in lady gaga style! Niceeee! she looks nothing like lady gaga. lol anyway as long as you and others feel that you’re the winner in their heart, you’re a winner already. they know that you dressed as lady gaga better. lol
haha ur so funny!! XD and so bad also lololol 😛
thanks alottttt babe, yeah this time i put in extra effort to do this and well, it didnt pay off haha. =/
maybe next time, i hope! hehe
sigh…happens yet again…
last time was maxis…now digi…
can totally relate to how you feel…i mean, u went all out to “dress up” and the one that took the least effort won instead….
oyahhh the maxis one, i remember! hahaha 🙂
i heard a lot about that too! i think was last year right?
hehe. i think things liddis, we all learn a lesson from. sigh. that no matter how much effort anyone puts in or how much awesome anyone looks, the best man does not win.
heh. life is unfair i guess 🙂
haha..no la…it was back in 2008..i think :p
wahhh so long ago! 😀
yeahh, i guess for every contests there’s bound to be some unhappiness somewhere sigh
u3Y7fG HHIS I should have thought of that!
well I would have voted you FTW!
awwwwww thanks shah! 🙂 but hey, its not voting process hehe. judges decision 🙂
it’s okay, thanks fo being so supportive ya
Well, I would say great efforts for you outfit as Lady Gaga.
If compare best dress I would say either you or Marilyn Manson would win. However I guess the extra talent which the other gaga posses helps her add extra mark.
I also noticed the “Best Dressed”‘s judging criteria has somehow become “Best Talented”, whihc ends up dissatisfaction of the end result =S
These are my opinions
sigh. thanks alot 🙂
and yup, it’s pretty obvious that the best DRESSED became a best TALENT award.
ohwell, like i said, what to do. heh. =/ things are never fair in life
Yeah and I was requested to DANCE with high boot on =D
nice one =D
and my wig was slipping down lower n lower backwards when i tried to dance!! aaaahhhh
BAD BAD BAD time to dance in uncomfortable gear n outfit liddat fo us lol T____T
it’s a great experience though =/
Luckily I didn’t fall down LOL
This is really a joke what they did. That girl looks nothing like Gaga and I have nothing against her. She’s probably a nice girl and did her best to win. Congratulations. But I’m sure she would admit that at least the efforts in dressing and make-up can’t be compared. You did a great job, dearie and you are my winner. However, we have to accept the decision and move on. You won, Jess, all people who saw you that night (except the jury) thought so and that’s most important. I just think the organizers embarrassed themselves and that can cost them losing some costumers or at least respect. Next time they have such contest, probably less ppl will attend and compete, cuz they will think that in the end someone wins, who’s not really the favorite of the crowds. Big hug from me.
well yeah, but i guess they had their reasons? hmm. =/
yeah i got nth against her too. but most of us all left immediately after discovering the results
thanks fo the assurance, but i guess it didnt quite cut it for the jury. heh. it’s okay!
ive learnt a lesson now, oways dress to impress and not to win perhaps?
We’ll never know. But keep your head high, you’ll surely win in plenty of other regards 🙂 Cheers.
Jessi babe, i feel your lost and i do think your outfits rocks my socks…hehe big hugs ok! Damn i didn’t attended the party so I don’t know how the heck Marilyn Manson won… who are the judges wei? Big hugs and french kissy to cheer u up… 🙂
sigh. heh thanks alot too ya. but actually marilyn manson also didnt win, he was also upset. elvis presley oso didnt win, someone else did. a girl who wore black if u saw the pictures.
judges was the ppl from digi. well, i guess sex appeal is a good strategy. in anywhere also.
when you said “how the heck Marilyn Manson won” , it means you said everything for the sake of supporting your friend =)
well done ! I’m being sarcastic, you know it =)
yalorrr marilyn manson didnt win wor. u didnt read properly or read too fast isit? hehe.
that girl won?! sigh! heard that its not DiGi who made the decision though…
yeah she did 🙁 but it doesnt matter anymore i guess. heh.
well yes it is wor, from what i heard la. cos if not they choose then who else? lol
You should have JUST DANCE instead of trying to sing. 🙂 That’s an honest feedback.
yaaaaa i know. cos i srsly had no idea what to do already. so shy! hehehe.
thanks fo the feedback!
Ok I actually visit your blog quite often, but I seldom comment, perhaps never commented before? Ok I personally think this entry is the best of yours! Thanks for telling us (especially those who were not attending the party) about this. Whatever it is, I could see so much effort you have put in. I guess you blog about it not because you’re losing or fail to win an Iphone 4, but just about the unprofessionalism of the judges. I understand, hope can meet you in person, and take a photo with you! I know you won’t bite. =D
aww thanks a lot.
yeah, like i said, my only reason of doing this is bcos i couldnt keep it in that night after emo-ing LOL then had to get it out n rant but where else to put but here on the blog? heh.
thanks for understanding my point of view.
and ok jom take photo! hehe.
Yeah, obviously you were more gaga compared to her lol plus, it should be a best performance award instead of best dressed if they were to judged on performance sighh life is always unfair. anyway, chin up babe! everyone know that you were the real lady gaga that night (:
thanks very much fo the reassurance too.
i think it would obviously be better if there were 2 categories, perhaps best dressed and best impersonation/performance. 🙂
but whatever it is, well said. life IS unfair. So best thing is, just gotta rant and move on hehe.
1stly, im not happy with what you have posted here.
you want to complain about the judges with lack of judgment then why dont you leave it at that?
why must you flame the girl?
is it her fault that she got short listed?
is it HER fault that she won?
she didn’t even go to the even hoping to win anything. just wanna have fun. aint that wat parties are all about? or do you not understand fun? having to go there with the mindset that u’ll win? that a bit overly confident don u think? and ur frens telling u this n that and also stepping on the poor girl, u bunch of apple polishers. its not even her fault that she got put under the spot light. so stop flaming the poor girl. if u wan to rant, rant for the correct reasons and at the proper people. Not discriminate other people and there outfit or wat so eva just because they unexpectedly won.
you said “HOW CAN 3 OTHER WELL DRESSED PEOPLE LOSE TO SOMEONE WHO DRESSED UP THE LEAST??”
-well if you know the real Lady Gaga, u shld know she barely have much fabric on her in the 1st place.
so wat if sex sells? saying such things only shows how much of a sore loser you are and u just told the whole world you have less sex appeal than she does. now i dun mean any disrespect but try to read you own words again and see it from a different perspective. Read it as if it was ranting about u. life hands you a lemon, live with it.
also posting a picture with all four of you while discriminating the poor girl, do you understand the offense you have just made? you could be charged for defamation for stepping on her image and dropping her reputation. now people will think badly of her cause of your 1 post and she wont even know wat happen. how’d you like it if it happens to you? say u went to some party and u unexpectedly won and some other people who are unhappy go post something like this would you like that? i suggest u discontinue this post or correct the wrong. you have no idea how much damage you can do to someone’s reputation with a lil bit of misunderstanding or misled in information.
direct your rants to the proper directions pls.
Thanks, u have a point and I do see where exactly you’re coming from.
Although intentions can be misconstrued, it can always be seen from different points of view and taken differently by different people.
I understand yours entirely.
if you understand then i really suggest you discontinue this post
leaving it on the internet does no good to the poor girl’s image when its not even her fault to begin with
try to understand you have just put someone’s reputation at stake without them doing anything wrong
im sure you wouldn’t want something like that to happen to you either without you nothing what’s wrong either.
things said cannot be taken back, damage done is hard to mend.
unless the proper people stand up to their doings and right the wrongs.
if you understand the grounds of my every point, i think you owe her an apology and then you should direct you rants, complains and dissatisfaction to the proper party involved
because of this post, a lot have been flaming her (i can see the flaming comments) when its not her fault and they don’t even know her. Image tainted with the benefit of a doubt? now that cruel.
i know your friend and followers are only trying to comfort and support you, but i think you have to make them understand now that it is not her fault to begin with.
i hope you get my drift before matter get a lil bit out of hand.
take it from a fellow blogger to another, i really don’t want to see how ugly blogging can get….
As mentioned, i already get your drift and appreciate this piece of opinion from a 3rd party’s POV.
i have already removed sentences which “puts her reputation at stake” and changed the direction of the post. this is in addition to a disclaimer paragraph which was originally there from the start making them understand and asserting a statement that this is not her fault and i’ve completely nth against her that she can wear anything she wants to the party and that my rant is against the judges, not her. In comment replies i have too mentioned that this rlly nth to do w her as it is the judges fault in the judging criteria and such.
I dont want anyone to flame her either nor “defame” her and will thus edit off any statements in my readers’ comments which steers to that direction.
i highly appreciate the things you have done like edit the post,
but that clearly wont mend the damage that’s already been done, feelings have probably be hurt
i know u understand, but unfortunately the viewers here don’t
but i hope they do and stop with the discrimination and criticism that is directed to the girl
as mentioned many times, she is also just a victim
thank you again for taking the time to correct the wrong but still unfortunately said words cant be taken back
First of all, YOU SOUND LIKE SAM AND VICTORIA. WOW why do you care anyway, Jess had no intention whatsoever to ‘defame’ that girl. its pretty darn obvious the judges were BLIND. So technically, since you are putting Jess down, and judging her. You’re like Jess too la?
thanks very much for understanding my intentions and where im coming from.
I honestly dont know who u are, but deep down, a big, big word of thanks and gratitude from me for everything you’ve said in all of ur comments.
You’re very welcome.
and also, thank YOU for taking the time to give me your honest input.
I think it’s clear that what Jess pointed out was the judging criteria for the contest.
However, to make it clear to those who didn’t attend the party, she has to show how well the 4 finalists dressed, and isn’t the answer clear ?
Also, you guys should stop talking on how Lady GaGa’s style has turned into recently. It’s the significance that gives you the 1st impression.
You compare ,
If Jess and the girl were to stand next to each other and to be chosen the best impersonation of Lady GaGa, I think the ANSWER is REALLY REALLY CLEAR.
If you think your perception’s still right, let me ask you.
why weren’t Jason Mraz and Michael Buble selected to be on the stage for the final that night when their impersonations were so alike to the original celebrity ?
also, blogging is personal…if all the posts are to appeal to the readers…there’ll be no personal taste.
Yes, loss is sore, especially when the competition’s unfair.
yes it only have been made clear now
only appointing the blame to the judges i can accept
but wats with ‘sex sells’? i know the fact that being said is to say that the judges only looks for more skin but don’t you think saying that also just called her something else? viewers here has been convinced that she wore less to win, that she “SOLD” herself to win. People will think she have no self respect. try thinking that you did not attend the party and read the 1st post, wont you think ur hatred and blame will appoint to her?
and having said so, take a look at your own post too. don’t throw off other people’s respect and have some respect for yourself. saying blogging is personal doesn’t just solves everything, it doesn’t justify, hell it doesn’t give you the right to criticize other people.
also if you really want to rant about someone, cant you leave the person anonymous? why put other people’s reputation at stake when its not even their fault to begin with. having the picture up is already bad enough. do you realise the level of damage this can cause to a person and their lifes?
many people’s future were ruin due to misunderstandings like these and especially on the fast moving world of the internet. you wan to keep it personal and freely talk and complain about other ppl? fine, keep your blog personal and to yourself like a personal journal and only for yourself to read.
try putting yourself in her shoes and imagine you read all this. try having you reputation shattered in front of ur very eyes without even knowing the grounds to the argument.
i understand that you are all unhappy with the results, but please, don’t make someone a victim of hate for no reason.
Reputation ? Yeah.
1st of all, I don’t see how bad enough is, to put up a photo on blog. As it’s just a normal photo.
2nd, I didn’t say anything regarding Sex, Whore, Prostitution and Skin.
What I’ve posted in my blog is just the criticism of her outfit which wasn’t outstanding enough to get her to the final .
I know, I mentioned “sex contest” in my blog.
But I’ve to make it clear to you, I meant “GENDER”
that’s why i said “Hot Sexy ladies are always the spotlight”
Lastly, I don’t know who you are, but if you find any insulting lines from my blog, tell me and I’ll consider reviewing and amending them.
@NotHappy: Oh, please! Don’t exaggerate so massively! As I read the post, I had NO FEELING she was attacking the girl personally. It’s one thing to say a person is bad or another that she wasn’t well dressed. She can criticize the competitors and their way of dressing, it’s her right. Don’t make it look like she was BASHING anyone. She was disappointed at the result, at the judges, but not AT THE GIRL! You’re twisting her intentions and that’s worse than what you think Jessica was doing to the girl. Don’t make a big fuss out of nothing. Jessica is a girl who has her own emotions and she has the right to voice her disappointment. And she didn’t bash anyone.
@Jessica: Don’t delete or modify this post, just because a small majority puts words in your mouth. You’re a very kind person and I’ve never seen you bash anyone. People are blowing this out of proportion.
i know she did not bash anyone, but due to her post, viewers have been doing the bashing. all you need is a match to start a forest fire.
people tend to say harmful things at the moment of dissatisfaction. and i know jess can see that now after she has cooled down from the issue. i have nothing personal against jess, but because of the things she wrote about here have led to people to throw harmful words to the poor girl is wat im not satisfied about. and i have mentioned this, to even put a picture up like that. wat if the viewers turned into haters towards her and now they are gonna recognise her. don’t you think its unfair to her. i can see from your comment you only try to comfort jess and not use bashful words on the other party just to cheer someone up. i can see you understand the points of the post. but other people HAVE released bashful words against her. it also saddens me to know that there are viewers that look forward to flame posts or comments.
i hope you understand where im going with this.
Why don’t you quote those “bashful words” towards the girl personally and not her Gaga outfit, because I can’t see any. This wasn’t a flame post and most of the commentators, who know Jess, know what she meant. She can’t be responsible for every word a commentator writes, but what matters is she didn’t mean to attack her.
If you go to a public event and put yourself on stage, you have to be ready for some criticism! It wasn’t a private party, it was a public event. If the girl can’t be strong to face criticism, then she shouldn’t have competed in the first place. These days all events are full of bloggers and pics land on Facebook and people criticize. And believe me, much worse than what people comment here. Get real.
u cant see any cause its already been taken out. i know she cant be responsible for every commentator words but she can be responsible for making it clear to them and i see that she took effort to do so and i appreciate it.
its a dress up party, people went there dressed up not to compete. you said “If the girl can’t be strong to face criticism, then she shouldn’t have competed in the first place.” then one should also be ready to admit defeat before even competing. thats wat showmanship’s all about.
yes you said there’s a lot of bloggers a lot of pictures therefore a lot of criticism. criticism comes in mainly because a platform has been provide. having said so, this post itself is a platform. as mentioned, what kinda of showmanship would it be to criticise other competitor after they have won.
and yes, you said putting one self onstage one have to be ready for criticism, ready to accept what ever it is. accept the decision in the 1st place then this post probably would not exist.
She has the right to criticize, she was part of the event and she felt she didn’t deserve second place. If you’re such a sensitive person, then don’t read blogs, because blogs voice opinions. And opinions can hurt. So what? It’s no kindergarten here. And going to a competition is no kindergarten either. The winning Gaga shows her whole legs, that’s bold. And you can be sure people will notice it and say their opinion. I’ve seen pictures on Facebook, she’s almost half naked. Why can’t we criticize the fact that such person won, since it was clearly about “best dressed” not “least dressed”?
I seriously don’t know why you started to twist Jessica’s words and portray her as someone she’s not. You can say she’s a sore loser, but she didn’t mean to hurt the girl and most of her followers also. If one troll says something bad, the blogger doesn’t need people playing internet police and telling what is ok to say and what not.
I won’t reply to you again, so don’t bother replying.
i dun think ive said this enough, criticise the judges and their lack of judgement.
as mention before (in case you didn’t notice)
she did NOT asked to be put on stage NOR did she asked to win.
By the way, do you have nothing better to do, but spend your time writing long messages here to erm. DEFEND yourself? You’re very sad 🙂 It’s just a post, on the internet. GET OVER IT and GET A LIFE. Soon, people wont even remember this post or even look back at it. well, except people like you. 🙂
Aparently victoria & sam stopped commenting. Cowards i say.
But then again, alot of Cowards on the internet take the form of anonymous , or even, in this case.. nothappy.
That girl you’re defending prolly wont even know you exist or just dwell in her own misery because, she prolly know her idea of lady gaga totally failed rock bottom.
we’re not defaming her. Just speaking the truth. And truth is what people like YOU are afraid to here. Waiting for a chance to jump the wagon to defame Jess too.
May god save you from hell. amen
just because 1 choose to stop commenting they are cowards?
i don’t know why i even have to argue with the rest of you as it does not involve you.
i guess y’all haven’t been a victim of defamation before therefore have no idea the type of mental trauma it has on a person. here’s a note, take some time to attend to people who has been through trauma. do some charity and give them your time then perhaps you’ll understand the seriousness of such offense thank you very much
Jess!!! I love your Dress up! It was creative from what i see, you should have won the competition! =( But nevermind you can try again! CHEERS!!
heyyy thanks much!! 🙂
hehe well i feel the other 2 deserves it just as much too.
yup i will try again! undying undying undying rarararrr!
1stly i would like to thank you for taking the time to clear things up a bit.
but i guess some of them just cant accept the fact and the height of how serious it can get. blogger’s most dangerous and closest enemy is the defamation law. im sure you clearly understand that therefore has alter the post.
though i feel sad for them who you call friends (im not here to judge if they are you friend or just hardcore viewer fans) for they do not see the bigger picture but only the smaller 1 which, the shadow behind you blog.
thank you again for your time
and i’d like to thank u too for how u vehemently voiced out and argued from your point of view.
i can see that it was very passionately spoken.
nolah, dont feel sad for them. i guess they are also arguing their point of view and standing for what they believe in as well. just like you and everyone else here 🙂
but what’s most important is that everything has been laid out on the table now and debated against. At the end of the road, everyone here *might* not have to agree with each other becos that would be relatively impossible.
this is where we all have to agree to disagree i suppose.
thank u for ur time too kay!
I think you are the one that do not see the BIGGER picture. Oops let me rephase that SIMPLE and CLEAR picture. Shame on you!
When I read through this blog I don’t see or feel Jess is defaming anyone. She just voicing out her frustration. Whereas YOU yes YOU (NotHappy) I think you are the one that should think twice about the law of defamation.
BIGGER PICTURE more like EXAGGERATED PICTURE. That of cause I won’t see.
I Just Lost RM500 By Bettin’ U Win This Title Of Best Dresses… <– I'm Jokin'.. Haha.. You're Should Win On That Day… I Was Amaze When 1st Time Saw U There.. That, The Result Is Realy Disapiont Me.. Oh! Your Photo On My Facebook.. Add Me

I truly understand you darling… Salute you for being gutsy enough to voice out…
If only I was as brave as you.. :/
Hope your voice will be heard and make “judges” open their eyes big big
so next time will do a wiser decision…
Don’t be sad d kay.. *hugs♥*
heh. yeahh. thanks gurl.
well, just say what ur heart yearns to say. then either u suffer or take responsibility for the consequences u caused. heh. that’s how i roll. for every action, there’s a reaction.. just that we gotta prepare for the bullets. cos not everyone will agree with u 🙂
thanks again! next time u voice out oso lah! if u tak syok anything haha
Am a bit blur here.
R u telling me that the girl standing to the left of Elvis Presley in your 9th photo was the winner?
My oh my………….
yup she is 🙂
Have taken the time to read the entire post + comments… wow… so much drama here.
I must applaud u, Jess, for your calm and cool responses to NotHappy’s rants.
I don’t think u were defaming that girl but I do agree that what u said could have been wrongly interpreted due to the limitation of blogging. So, just be careful next time. Or at least, make it SUPER CLEAR who you are not happy with.
For the record, if “Best Dressed” was truly “Best Dressed” (and not something else), then either Elvis, Gaga or Manson deserved to get that title. But then, this is life. It happens all the time.
What matters is that we learn to become stronger and stronger after each setback to the point where it no longer matters what people say.. as long as we are doing the right thing and have given our best everyday in every way.
awwwww thanks so much fo taking the time to read and follow the drama rama.
And ur right, life is like this. full of dissatisfaction and disagreement. but then again, this makes life so shitty yet interesting at the same time, no? 🙂
well said in ur last sentence. I’ll keep that in mind, for the record! 😉
