I recently reached out to Dominique aka Pikkochan regarding a dramatic look for my latest doll addition, Lilith. To transform a blank Obitsu girl into a drop dead gorgeous Gothic beauty would be no easy task! The need for a third eye, tattoo and piercings did not make my request any easier. Thankfully, Pikkochan was willing to give this challenge a shot. I am so happy with the results!
I am ecstatic to share that my recent purchases from Souffle Song have arrived! Nothing is better than a new dress. This is my first purchase from the Souffle Song, but this order will not be my last!
As my favorite publication comes to an end, I had to get my hands on the last copy of the Gothic & Lolita Bible. While the end of the publication is a sad realization, this issue will be on I will treasure.
MAXICIMAM is one of my favorite Japanese brands. As a plus size Lolita, one of the reasons why I love this brand is simply due to the fact that they offer a clothing line for larger Lolita sized clothes. I have purchased a few of their products in the past, and I was very impressed with the quality and construction of each piece.
When Maxicimam announced that their new Jumperskirt print release that would feature their cute bear Coty-chan and be released to the Lovely Size line, I just had to purchase the new dress release for myself! I made a video in order to showcase this purchase! The video allows you to see additional aspects of the dress.
When Angelic Pretty announced that the San Francisco store was having a winter sale, I could scarcely contain my excitement! This time of the year is the best for me to order Lolita items considering it is almost tax return season. Although the items I chose were not on sale, I am so happy that I purchased what I did!
I came across four items I just had to have. I had to resist the urge to purchase additional items, such as the Fantastic Pegasus Chandelier Necklace and Fantastic Pegasus Chandelier Ring set for this particular order.
✓ Creamy Doughnuts Ring (Brown)
✓ Creamy Doughnuts Bracelet (Brown)
✓ Lady Heart Quilting Bag (Pink)
✓ Dolly Pearl Headbow (Pink)
There was a princess who adored the Angelic Pretty series Melty Cream Doughnut very much. While she did own an imitation of her favorite dress, the young woman dreamed of the moment she would finally have in her possession her own authentic piece. On the day of her birth, the princess happened to find herself on her favorite online stores. The website storefront looked the same as the day before, with only an 6 year anniversary event and the recent release of Chocolate Rosette rotating throughout the news reel. A simple decision to visit the online shop gave way to extraordinary discovery. The princess could not believe her eyes as she read the glorious words, "Melty Cream Doughnuts", which sat casually above the other current Angelic Pretty series. To willingly cooperate with destiny, the princess eagerly selected Go to Checkout.
Once the banner became active for Melty Cream Doughnuts, I quickly clicked through to see the active items in that particular series. The color decision was exceedingly easy this time around! During the original release, I had a fondness of the pink and the brown Jumperskirt colorway variation. Since there was no re-release of the brown colorway, I quickly added the available pink jumperskirt dress to my cart and checked out.
When I innocently stumbled upon Bodyline's website on September 3, 2016, I could scarcely believe my luck. Bodyline, in celebration of Mr. Yan's birthday, was having a sale of 50% off everything. I have had my eye on a few items on my wishlist I that had waited to purchase. This sale was the perfect excuse to place an order!
I scanned the website for potential items I found the products I wanted most. I submitted my order on September 3, 2016 and, despite the EMS shipping speed, the order did experience a one week delay before the items were shipped. The delay was expressed on Bodyline so customers could prepare accordingly.
This particular Bodyline order consisted of:
✓ One Pair of Shoes
✓ One Wig
✓ Two pairs of wrist cuffs
All items were shipped together on September 16th, 2016. Since I chose EMS shipping, once my order was processed my parcel took only four days to get from Tokyo, Japan to a notice on my doorstep in Maine.
There are a great many considerations when ordering a doll. One of these considerations is of course the doll's features. I adored the form of the doll I chose, but faced some difficulty in features. I was unable to order a company face up since the Obitsu brand does not release completed features. I needed to find an artist to commission. Luckily I came across Lauren Buitte aka TheKawaiiPhoenix on Etsy!
It is finally here -- my MAXICIMAM review!
MAXICIMAM is a fashion brand from Tokyo, Japan that offers punk and Lolita style clothes. I discovered this brand a few years ago in a Gothic & Lolita Bible and decided to investigate. I found that MAXICIMAM offered larger sizes they called "lovely size" which was a particular interest to me as a plus-sized Lolita. I awaited in anticipation for the opportunity to order a few in-stock items that would accommodate my measurements.
Halloween presented the perfect chance to put "lovely size" to the test!
