Little Dipper Camouflage Alice Series

It is called “伪装爱丽丝系列” on the site, and Google Translate says “伪装” is camouflage, or disguise. Maybe it is just a plain ol’ Alice style dress. Maybe it is supposed to be Hidden Alice. I have no idea.

Which it really kind of is. It hits all the points of looking like Alice.

I like the flower lace, but am not so much a fan of the ribbon lacing on the front and sleeves. But according to their site, the shoulders go up to 42cm. That is my new concern- my shoulders cannot fit into anything.

I would get pink, not light blue. Pink is superior.

And then there is red and I do want a Christmas-y type dress still. The flower lace must be dyed to match the fabric, but it IS there still. Maybe only the pastel colorways have white lace.


This is what it looks like without the apron. Also, black colorway! With black lace flowers! Also, not shown here but on the Taobao page, the little collar is removable too.

It appears there is a long version and a short version, but these pics are all of the short version and I am not exactly sure how the order page distinguishes between them.  Usually I can pick out characters, but I am having trouble today.

There are also matching headbows.

In other news, the Lady Victoria Rose Jewelry dress from BTSSB is up for reservation until the 9th.  Upon closer inspection, there are some weird bits in the print that I don’t really like, such as photo realistic portraits of some lady who must be Lady Victoria. I’m more excited about this Alice knockoff dress and that Ista Mori meme dress than I am about real brand. Hah, I am so odd.

October Wishlist – Taobao edition

HECK. Why do there have to be a ton of releases when I should not be buying things?

Ista Mori Nameless Poem is a meme dress, in that it was super popular, size friendly, and cheap, so the meme is that lots of people have the dress. I too want the dress, because it is going up for sale.

The original meme dress.

There is also a version without the cross embroidery, which I would get. Also, WINE COLORWAY.

This will go up for order on October 5. I want it. ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ The winexwhite and the blackxwhite. There is also a whitexblack.

A few weeks back, there was an event called Dream Masquerade Carnival, where Long Ears & Sharp Ears/Pink Up participated in a fashion show with a bunch of upcoming prints. No Devil Emblem, but there are a TON of dresses that I want. These are all taken from Facebook.

Moonlight Waltz in black. This STRONGLY reminds me of Krad’s Beauty and the Beast print.  I love this kind of artwork on a print. Is that a vampire on there too? =^● ω ●^= Or just some elegant nobleman?

Camelot Market, again, a similar art style to Moonlight Waltz and some Krad prints. This blue colorway isn’t bad…

BUT THE IVORY COLORWAY, HOLY CRAP this is gorgeous.

Finally, there is this print, which I can’t find a name for yet.  I want to see more detail in this dress before deciding if I want it yet or not.

Other wise, I want Moonlight Waltz in some colorway and Camelot Market in ivory. Maybe AP will continue to be totally disappointing so I will have extra money for dresses.

OH WAIT, BTSSB released a bunch of stuff I want too…but it gets its own post.

Little Dipper Tasman Solid JSK Series (UPDATED)

“Tasman” is what Google Translate is using for “塔斯亚”, and google search of those characters brings up Tasmania, so…Tasman JSK it is.

I LOVE IT ;__; It will come in short (as shown) and long. The long has option for weird circular ruffles on the skirt, but they are optional. Available colors will be light blue, apricot, maroon red (cyanosis?), 绀 (process of elimination says that this is the navy blue!), black, lotus root (this is pink?) and green.

Little Dipper only has the preview pages up, so not sure on size or even preview pictures of all colors yet. But oh man, I want them. (ヽ `д´)┌┛★)`з゜) THEY ARE SIMPLE AND BASIC LIKE ME. I am not even concerned about how the bodice has ruffles. I love ruffles.

_(:3」∠)_ I guess I will just wait and see about this dress. I want the pink and maybe other colors too.

Also when is Arcadian Deer coming out with the Fire dress?!?

UPDATE 8/25/2017
So preorders are open from today until September 15, Chinese time. LOOK AT THESE AND HOW LOVELY THEY ARE. And they are only $44/45 each (if you get the ones lacking the weird circle ruffle, which I would).

Light yellow/beige. I like it. The other model of this dress is in light blue, but I already have a light blue dress and don’t feel like I really need another one. Not now anyway.

A nice dark green. I don’t have any green dresses yet.

Wine red. Wouldn’t this be a nice Christmas dress? Or Valentine’s Day dress? Or just to wear whenever because it is pretty?

I am not showing the black or navy blue dresses. Actually, both the long and short versions come in all of the colors (pink, yellow, light blue, navy blue, wine red, green and black) but they are only modelling the long dresses in the darker colors and the lighter colors with the short dress.

I want the pink dress for sure, in the shorter cut, and I am thinking about getting the red and green dresses in the longer cut. However, I am going to wait until September before deciding for sure. Torn on the yellow dress. Ha I kind of want the pink dress in both cuts because I am ridiculous. (ง •̀ゝ•́)ง Come September, I will think about what I can afford and if I still want this.

Fanplusfriend Neo-Ludwig Mitologia Egypt Series

Mitologia is just spanish for Mythology.〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)

The long awaited Bastet print from F+F is up for preorder! There are two dresses in several sizes!

First is the Ancient Egypt Goddess Bastet Dress with a Hooded Blouse. It has an open skirt front and is a sleeveless dress. However, this comes with a tulle blouse, as the model is wearing.

A view with the detachable hood of the blouse on.

There are three colors: white/gold (for daytime), green/gold (for life) and black/gold (for mystery). I really like all three of them.

The other cut is the Ancient Egypt Goddess Bastet Gauze Cape Sleeveless Dress. It includes a detachable mini capelet that buttons on the shoulders to create the little sleeves. I am a little worried about that neckline though.

I like it styled like this much, MUCH better. A blouse underneath and the bow from the other dress? I like it.

Same colors as above, except here, the dark green is paired with black, while above, it is paired with light green/gold.

I really want these dresses. ;__; I know the Lady 90 size will fit perfectly (if maybe a little big). I like the second dress in green for sure, and the first dress in black. That way, the bow from the first dress could be used with the second dress.  The black colorway makes me think of the black colorway for my LE&SE Kingdom of Faeries dress too, which is kind of a good thing.  I already have some black blouses (both long and short sleeve) that I could pair with both, and without a blouse, both of these could probably work as classy normal dresses too.

Right now they are on sale, and there is an addition 12% coupon code on top of that. With the coupon, shipping is pretty much free.

ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ I want them!

I also need to buy jeans and other more daily normal clothes though. I guess jeans are on sale right now too…

But I want these dresses. They have CATS on them. The GODDESS OF CATS BASTET.

ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ Man, why do I have to be the responsible person in my family.

Summer Taobaoring Order

My last outstanding Taobao has arrived! I ordered July 2nd, and with EMS shipping and a delay with the shoes, everything arrived today.

I got shoes from Sosic Shop, hair clips and wristcuffs from Haruhiclover, and headbands from Red Maria. Also, two petticoats from Aurora&Ariel. Finally have blue shoes! I already own some of these same wristcuffs in different colors, and they are great.

The three headbands from Red Maria are identical, except pink, light blue and lavender. The little chain and gem are not removable, but I can squish the “bow” down a bit so it sits flat on my head. Also, the bows are a lie! They are not really looped bows but just sewn to look like bows.

Hair clips from Haruhi Clover. My SS wanted to make sure I only wanted 1 of each bow clip, because they are modeled as clips for pigtails (so you’d have to buy two). Maybe I will buy more later, but these look nice and seem to be pretty good quality for cheap hair bow clips. Also, Haruhi Clover included another shiny star hair clip, so now I have two. The little rose hairpin actually came with my shoes, which is kind of off, but okay, I love free gifts.

Not exactly sure on how to take a good picture of the petticoats. Not even sure which is which, but I think the Ultra Violence one is the poofier one (as it should be).

I tried on both petticoats and am disappointed, but mostly in myself. The waistband is less stretchy than expected, so I have to pull them over my head and while they technically fit, they do not fit comfortably.  Of course, I am watching my food, but life has been stressful (let me rephrase that, my FAMILY is stressful) so I have been overeating still. u__u It may be easier to replace the elastic in these instead. I will have to think about it.

There is a meet this weekend, a picnic that isn’t far from my house, and this would have been the perfect opportunity to test out these petticoats and shoes a bit more. Alas, my family is causing problems so I will have to go out of town.

Mail call!

Got home to TWO packages today. What great timing, since I had a sort of rough day.  What are they?

SOCKS. And the Arcadian Deer Four Elements of Astrology-Air dress. I could have used those socks….the last two days. HAH. But now I should be good on lolita socks for a good long while…at least until winter. I ordered them from Aliexpress on June 30 and today is the 10th, so got here faster than expected. Yay. Later this year, I will get some nicer tights.

Tired and feeling a little unwell at the moment, so all I did was unpack my Arcadian Deer dress, and I want to go ahead and say DAMN.

DAAAAAMN. ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ

Print looks so pretty in person. It has gold trim and the dress is shimmery and beautiful and I am super impressed.

One thing I have noticed with Angelic Pretty is that there will be a button sewn onto the strap and then the loop on the bodice, so if you want to adjust the straps to fit you better, gotta re-sew the button. But with this dress (and actually a few other taobao dresses), the button is on the bodice and the strap has button holes, so all I need to do is move to a different button hole.

Also, they included a plastic garment bag so I can protect the dress from harmful things like direct sunlight and inconsiderate smokers. AND there was a freebie hand mirror included too.

Anyway, I am 100000% sold now on getting the Water dress and maybe even the Earth dress when those are released. Right now, the only other print they have even shown is the Fire print.  However, I figure that the Water print would have mermaids or something like that, so that could scratch my itchy for a mermaid-y dress (as opposed to the r-series dress I am keeping an eye out for) and the Earth print may have some forest nymph dryad something, which would be cute too. Neither of those prints have been shown yet, only the Fire print (and obviously, the Air print).

I should probably calm down a little, at least until I wear the silly thing. :p But it is SO PRETTY ಠ◡ಠ

 

Moonlight Forest – Poetry of the Fantasy City RELEASE

Aka “City Castle Hella Pastel Whose Name I Cannot Remember” Print that I still cannot get because of 94cm bust and I am sad.

There are 3 OPs and 2 JSK, and I love them all, but my chest is too big so I guess at least I am saving money. Preorders are up until July 10 so if you love this print, don’t wait.

Taobao

OP with frills in the front

OP with hella cute peplum (the left one, the right is the JSK)

Sailor OP

Peplum JSK

Bow JSK

All of the L sizes are 94cm (bow JSK is 95cm) bust and waist are 84cm (Bow JSK and frilly OP have a stretchy waist that goes up to 88cm?) and are all 98cm long.

FIVE CUTS. FIVE. And not even one would fit because chest. :S I mean, they have S,M and L so definitely catering to many sizes, but would it kill them to make an XL too? Which I predict would be 98/78(78~94) if going by the pattern of the size increases from S to L. That theoretical XL would work. ;__; OH WELL at least my Arcadian Deer dress arrived at my SS and it should be here soon, and then maybe I can get other elements from that series. In August. When I am allowed to shop again. ;___;
