"the followers of the holy light do not worship any gods. instead, it is a philosophy, training its followers to seek perfection within themselves. it is very much an active practice of virtue rather than a passive worship. those who follow it closely gain spiritual awareness and guidance, allowing them to lead others.”

One of the main differences is that dandyism was also an intellectual movement that stressed self-improvement in order to become a living work of art; later in the 19th century, it was closely associated with the Aesthetic, Decadent, and Symbolist Movements.  Foppery never had any intellectual underpinnings, but because dandies were considered flamboyant by 19th century standards, they were often perceived as fops anyway.
