Last thread is on autosage >>8362652.

Post relevant lolita discussions, questions, and whatnot here.

To that effect: AP just announced a rerelease of Misty Sky. How many firstborns and virgins will you be sacrificing, or not, for a chance to win the legendary cloud print?

I submitted an order to chibitenshi already, just waiting for her email now... What's everyone getting?

With releases like these I spare myself the stress and not bank on getting anything unless it becomes a mto. I don't have it good with any SS for them to give me priority. Good luck to you, anon.

They should just make it mto. This would be the third release, right? I mean, they proved they can make multiple orders of the same print. They're milking this one in particular because they realized what a cash cow it has become.

I have zero sympathy for scalpers.

>> No.8371296

I just want AatP to rerelease Elizabeth Bride of Death or End of Immortal Eden

I guess AP could also rerelease Holy Lantern, I'd be all over that

AatP has rereleased a couple things. Midsummer got a couple runs on it's initial release, so did Masquerade Theater I believe. Midsummer was also rereleased as a special anniversary promotion after being voted for. Masquerade also got a limited black JSK rerelease a year or so ago.

If everyone emails AP, they will probably do a Made to Order. Everyone should do it, whether you get one during the release or not.

>> No.8371589

The way I see it is, when you buy a dress for a crazy high price, you better be deciding right then and there that this price is worth it to you even if you don't get close that amount back should you decide to sell.

If you buy things just hoping to sell them for the same amount you paid later, this is the wrong hobby to be in.

The entire Chinese (lolita) population is emailing them. I don't think they'll do a MTO because it's currently their most iconic and desired print. They have these stupid "exclusivity" policies. I hope they do tho, lots of girls will def. get every color every cut.

Why is Misty Sky worth so much? There's nothing lolita-specific about the cut or print. Couldn't you just get some tumblr dress with a cloudy sky to go with all that galaxy print.

Jus emai them in English, to the main AP (Japan), not USA, because Japan is who makes them.

I have done that in the past and they always answer something like "We appreciate the opinion of Our costumers and we will let know Our Production Office", or something like that.

If after Friday you didn't got it, in the same page of the dress you are interested in, while logged in Your account, there is a button in gray (I believe it has a star or something).

Then you can send a Message from the AP online shop page, saying something like "I would like to order to be made this dress, I hope is possible".

Okay, has anyone dealt with a product being recalled by a brand before?
I bought the Violin Pochette from IW for 11,800 yen along with other items.
A couple weeks later they emailed me that they were recalling it, so I mailed it back to them as instructed. I didn't request a cancellation.

"Dear Ms. X,
We are very sorry to inform you that we are recalling "151916 Violin pochette" released on April 24, 2015, due to a defective zipper is soon broken after use.
Please stop using it immediately for your safety even if there is no problem with it so far.
Please return the item to the address below.


Returning is due on June 30th.
Please enclose a note with your name and date you placed the order.
(*Please let us know in cases where you can not return the item by June 30th.)
We also accept cancellations if you would like a full refund(including the product price, delivery cost and insurance).
*Re-releasing the item will be around mid-June.
We deeply apologize again for causing the inconvenience."

After I sent it back I got the following email:
"Dear Ms. X,

We confirmed the receipt of the returned item today.
We will refund you with the cost of shipping included on paypal during today.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to you again."

Later though they refunded me only 15,194 yen out of my original purchase transaction.
It cost me almost $60 to ship it back to them (shipping overseas from the US costs a fortune), so if they were refunding the price of the bag and the shipping I paid they'd owe me around 18,000 yen. Instead it looks like they just refunded the cost of the bag and whatever portion of the original shipping from Japan it cost. I'm really confused. I don't even know if they're going to send me a new bag eventually or what because the wording is kinda of vague. I'll probably email them, but I'm just wondering if this is typical or what.

It's ridiculously short , I'm 88cm bust and 165cm tall and it was about mid-thigh on me even after moving the buttons to make the straps longer. Your bust can probably fit but it'll pull up the dress and make it even shorter.

Am I the only one not excited about the Fee d'une fleur rerelease?

The release looks like a cheap chinese replica tbh, it's missing all the good details. Especially the ruffles look simplified on the rerelease, like they are trying to save money and time on detailing and fabric, the corset lacing will also be simplified. The rerelease is also going to be more expensive than the original one (the original one did cost about 45000-50000 yen iirc and the rerelease will cost 60000 yen). Do you gulls think it's worth buying that price, I honestly do not think so.

I love the idea of bittersweet as a concept but hate how 90% of examoles are executed. I'm not talking about sugary carnival-esque prints in black or swear words and eyeballs plastered all over everything to be edgy-desu. I mean a nice mix of sweet and gotic colr palettes, themes and motifs that aren't as 'mature' as full on gothic, but not so rainbow cutesy vomit as full sweet. Yes, a mix of pastels and back but in a balanced way that doesn't make tenoasels look washed out and weird. Bats, chandeliers, gothic castles, coffins, lavender colorways, cute bows and animals. Again- Holy Lantern (especially in Lavender) ticks all the boxes for me in the sweet and slightly gawfick department.

A swap meet is a meetup where you bring items/clothes you want to trade or sell.

Nope. Including the general Asian markets Misty Sky is like 2-3x more popular than Holy Lantern. Holy Lantern is only more popular or as popular in the West.

Don't be so sandy. It will fit 95cm just fine. Wear a binder and it will look nicer. Dream Sky looks waaaay worse on fatties. Unless you have big shoulders and fat legs. Then it will look like shit.

That doesn't really apply for the Angelic Pretty online shop, though. Unless I'm missunderstanding you?

No, you won't pay anything if you lose the auction.

So are we going to be able to buy multiple cuts/colorways for the Misty Sky release? For new prints, AP tends to limit the items to one dress and one of each accessory per person or they'll cancel their order. Does this apply for Misty Sky?

hey gulls, a CDC OP set in lavender missing the choker in 2 condition is up for sale on closet child right now for 43,800 yen, since i don't have the money at the moment, thought i'd share and let someone else snap it up

>> No.8377554

Yeah. I couldn't remember if you needed to verify your info with Buyee unless you linked your Tenso. I shouldn't have mentioned it.

>contacted in-store SS about a thing several months ago
>"It hasn't been released in my city yet, maybe tomorrow or the next day?"
>No contact after that
>Reengage SS after about a month
>"Still hasn't been released yet, sorry! I'll be in touch!"
>Another month has passed
>Thing has been sold out on the website for weeks

...I'm really confused. I've never had an issue with this SS before and I don't want to name/shame, but is it really normal for AP to delay the in-store release of an item like this? It's not an item that had a big, scheduled release or anything...I just contacted the SS when the photos showed up on yaplog. I'm at a loss, really...it feels more like she's stringing me along but I've never known this particular SS to do anything like that.

Also no, her messages haven't been going to my spam. I check it religiously.

I hope you guys are flooding APs email now and after the release for misty sky. A made to order of this would be glorious, and I think it has pretty good chance of happening.

This is one of those series I'd want in multiple colors and cuts, but fuck scalper prices and paying more than $300 for anything secondhand.

>> No.8377744

They were lying to you, likely they forgot and it passed so they tried to just say it was not released. They dont release it online until around or a bit after it is done in stores, and they are release it to all stores around the same time.

>> No.8377746

is it just me or has there been an influx of noobs lately? i've noticed a lot of obvious newbies asking dumb questions or making dumb posts in sales groups

>> No.8377791

Same. I'm stuck with getting one colorway since I want some matching accessories and I want to have my order completed ASAP instead of dilly dallying and losing the entire order. I like every color except lavender for this print so I need to buckle down and decide on which colorway to get before the release tomorrow.

Just curious Gulls, how much do you think the rerelease of Misty Sky will range for on the second hand market when it hits? I sadly am a poorfag until I get my first internship paycheck, so I'll miss the release.

Lav and sax 300-400
Pink and black 400-500

Why do they appear in summer, though ? It's the season I want to wear lolita the least, it's too fucking hot.

Huh, I watch jahr's unboxing vids and I've never gotten that vibe from her friend? In fact her friend always seems really disinterested in her lolita stuff, lol.

She's definitely rambly in them though, and though she seems nice and genuine she gives off a bit of a naively silver spoon vibe, lol.

>> No.8378775

She's lying. What SS?

That's what I figured, I just didn't want to jump to conclusions without a second opinion.

>> No.8379411

>> No.8381533

Yeah, just stay there
