Featured Episode


Belle Delphine is the online pseudonym of United Kingdom-based cosplayer and model Mary-Belle Kirschner, who gained much internet notoriety for posting videos and photographs of herself performing ahegao faces. After disappearing from social media in late 2019, she returned to YouTube in mid-June 2020, followed by another brief hiatus from social media in 2021 where Delphine ultimately returned to Twitter and other platforms in mid-April 2022. Noted as a quintessential e-girl by many, Delphine has had a massive online presence around the internet since 2015, ranging from various controversies to memes and more. She's also attributed to largely popularizing the Pink Nose E-Girl Makeup trend among many others through what's since been coined the "Belle Delphine Effect."



On March 27th, 2015, the earliest known picture was posted to the @belle.delphine[1] Instagram page (shown below).

On July 9th, 2019, the news was proven to be a hoax. Although Delphine's orders for her bath water product had been sold out, she claims to have not shipped the orders yet at the time of the rumor, which makes it impossible for that many people to have contracted herpes from the product so rapidly [14].

2024 Profit Loss On Bathwater Reveal

On May 6th, 2024, Belle Delphine announced via an X[32] post that she lost around $90,000 on her bathwater sales that PayPal took from her (shown below).

Belle Delphine @bunnydelphine Since it's been a couple years now I can finally share the biggest L I've ever taken. Not only did I not earn any money selling my bathwater, I in fact LOST money doing it. @PayPal without any warning closed my PayPal account and took the $90,000 that I earned from selling my bathwater. There was nothing I could do, I tried phoning them up and they just said 'sorry, nothing we can do!' I knew it would be a better news story to say that I made 'soooo much money' from selling my bathwater so I just kept this secret...Ultimately I'm still glad I did it since it was a really funny time on the internet when it happened, and I still did mail out all the bathwater people bought from me (which I did all by myself ☺) Sooo... f--- PayPal I guess? Transaction details Print Your payment Correction GAME QUER 26 May 2021 at 23:08:24 BST Transaction ID: Payment status: COMPLETED Gross amount Need help? -$90,377.58 USD We have no postal address on file Gross amount PayPal fee Net amount $90,377.58 USD settle a dispute o $0.00 USD -$90,377.58 USD Contact information 9:45 AM - May 6, 2024 - 44.8K Views PayPal Funding details Funding Source: PayPal balance Funding Source: -$90,377.58 USD - PayPal Accou Belle Delphine @bunnydelphine I apparently broke one of their ToS, and each time you break a ToS you receive a -$2,500 penalty. So each payment of bathwater that went through was a break of ToS which resulted in -$2,500 every time without me realising. They wouldn't tell me which PayPal rule I broke and they wouldn't give me anymore information because of 'security risk. So I don't know if it's because they don't allow so workers to use their platform or if they had a specific issue with me selling bathwater... regardless not even knowing felt 9:56 AM - May 6, 2024 117.4K Views

Pink Nose E-Girl Makeup

Pink Nose E-Girl Makeup, also known as Gamer Girl Makeup, is a style of face makeup characterized by an excessive application of nose contour or blush, a sharp dot of nose highlight and eyeliner designed to elongate the eye. While the makeup style has been an e-girl staple for years, it was popularized by cosplayer Belle Delphine and singer Doja Cat in the early 2020s. The style has been described in popular culture as the "female fedora" and "OnlyFans warpaint," primarily due to its prevalence with female content creators that make thirst trap videos.

Belle Delphine Effect

The Belle Delphine Effect refers to the perceived effects and consequences on women and men of e-girl Belle Delphine's prevalence online. Believers of the Belle Delphine effect tend to hypothesize that Delphine normalized e-girl makeup and the ahegao face, inspiring women to copy her looks, personality and style to attract a following. Some also believe Delphine inspired e-girls to present themselves as young girls to attract men, possibly helping normalize ageplay and pedophilia. Regarding men, the Belle Delphine effect has been suggested to have encouraged incel behavior and normalized parasocial relationships between men and sex workers through subscription-based sites like OnlyFans. The effect was first perceived online in July 2019 after Delphine's Gamer Girl Bath Water was announced. E-girl Waifu Mia is often cited as a top example of the Belle Delphine effect.
