Discuss Honey Cake, post coords, or even ideas.

If you don't like Honey Cake, stop coming and screaming it's fugly or how the fabric doesn't suit your liking. no one fucking cares.

Idk if I should feel bad for girls having first release at this point. Original HC seems more valuable due to material, but the print itself is not that rare anymore, so I understand why people may be upset with rerelease. Probably AP did the right thing releasing Brilliant Misty Sky in new colors. Quite upsetting for those looking for original colors, but those who bought the original release didn’t lose the money.
>>
>>10189694
This sounds like a fun conversation starter! Let’s say if AP decided to switch it up and launch HC in a different colorway, what color would you have liked to see?
I think either sax or vibrant blue would have been nice.
>>
>>10189704
I think red could be really cute. Or brown/beige with gold accents
>>
>>10189704
Actually my point was about ethics behind rereleases. Everyone knows that significant part of brand piece price is its rarity. People have legit reason to be salty about CTP rerelease, because you can never tell releases apart by outer look, so they spent extra money for nothing.
>>
>>10189713
Ethics? AP is not in the business of creating investment pieces that are supposed to earn the owners money by being rare. It's better for AP to keep rereleasing pieces that go for insane amounts second hand so the money is going to the brand, not to scalpers. If someone bought CTP for $2k prior to the MTO that was their own choice, why feel bad for someone who has that kind of money to drop on a rare dress?
>>
>>10189707
Red would be adorable! I'd also love a dark green version.
>>
>>10189715
THIS.
>>
>>10189694
it’ll likely be easier to tell which one is the first or second release unlike CTP
someone can easily post that it’s the first release then some sap buys it for 4k and gets fucked over

Sax,vibrant blue, red, brown/beige with gold accents, dark green... I love all of these ideas; Honey Cake definitely doesn't need to be in pink.

In terms of blue though, what do you guys thing of this range of blue shades collectively referred to as "cornflower blue" ?
>>
>>10189707
Id be really excited for a red release.
A light peach would be cute
>>
>>10189762
The lightest shade there is lovely and I think it would work very well for Honey Cake. I wish there were more of that blue rather than sax in lolita anyway

>>10189777
LOL to each their own anon
Honestly I think a few of them would be ok with some minor alterations to the print itself + the accenting details, but I think AP already won the game with the yellow and ivory colorways the way they are.
And the darker blue colorway might actually look super good (a la French Cafe) if I put more time into making the shoop look nice, gomen for my laziness

not anything as busy as french cafe persay, but if the silhouettes on the print were white and it had more white and red details elsewhere around the waist bow and switching area....yesss

Bottom sax is really cute. I wonder if AP thinks it's too close to mint.
>>
>>10189801
I wonder too. I mean to me the mint makes no sense because it's not represented well in the rest of the print, but a sax or another light blue to complement the milk cartons and dishes and stuff seems so intuitive to me and I don't know why they haven't done it.

Brown with more diffuse versions of the print colors pls

This makes it look like every other pastel vomit dress AP's released. To each their own though I guess.
>>
>>10189784
red blouses or cardigans are worn often with HC, what would you guys do for a red one like this? It looks really cute.
>>
>>10189694
I'm sort of glad I have one of the colorways that didn't get re-released (yet, who knows). The original fabric and sizing, along with another colorway will probably ensure it retains value so long as it doesn't get re-released.

As for colorways:
>>10189774
Sax: I like the shade of sax on the top right, but maybe slightly more subdued like on the bottom.

>>10189776
Lav: I really like lavender and red together, but I feel like the sax sort of throws it off. Yellow and purple are opposites and normally clash but there's some other prints that do this well. I feel like for this to look good, the rest of the print itself needs to be adjusted.

>>10189784
>>10189786
Red or Navy: This would be really cute, especially if the designs on the top part of the print were white. I'm not sure how I feel about black.

Brown is something I've been thinking about. i might shoop it.

I just shooped this on the round version. I'm too lazy to go over the the designs on the upper part of the print to make them lighter. But brown is probably the best. I'd buy it in every cut.
>>
>>10189829
honestly, I have the original OTKs for my original release and I only have them for set completion purposes. I never wear them with it. I normally wear AP's candy fun fair otks in red, or some of my various chocolate or brown otks and ankle socks.
>>
I’m trying to understand the sizing...up to ~127 bust but the bodice doesn’t have straps and can’t be adjusted lengthwise?? Is this some trap to have fatty-chans buy a dress that won’t look good on them?
Not trying to hate on bigger girls who are buying it I have big cow titties too, but know I’ll look ridiculous with that bodice type.
>>
>>10189784
Omg someone please make a mockup pic of a coord with this
>>
>>10189828
Thanks for telling us something we already new dumbass
>>
>>10189832
Straps are adjustable. The Paris site even mentions it.

The original release had the type with two buttonholes on the strap and the buttons are on the body-facing portion of the shirring panel. IDK if they will put an additional buttonhole, but it's probably not quite as necessary. With cow-tits myself, this hit closer to my natural waist than most releases anyway.
>>
>>10189694
I sold off my first release HC not too long ago because of the material. It’s just too hot to wear where I live unless it’s in the middle of winter but even that’s iffy at times. I’m really happy the MTO is a fabric I can wear whenever I want.
>>
>>10189829
Honestly I was sold by the artist in the last couple threads and I'll probably try to get hers. Otherwise, I don't really like striped socks to begin with

>>10189819
No cardigan, just a bright white chiffon blouse or cutsew

>>10189830
I really want this, it's so cute

>>10189837
I wished they had more pictures. I still can’t picture how a bodice that style is adjustable. But I could just be stupid

this is such a Meta colourway and I'm here for it!

I'm personally so excited to have a fun print that goes up past 110cm bust AND has adjustable straps. original nor special set HC would have ever worked for my big&tall hourglass ass.
I'm happy that I can have a full set too that can accomodate me through my whole life, regardless of fluctuations.
I miss older fully shirred cuts with good prints but this is just as nice
>>
>>10189877
You’re wonderful, and I thank you for your efforts!
>>
>>10189842
I wonder how that anon is doing with their recent edits? The last one lacked luster for me but I’m still keen on investing in them in the long run. It’s like they’re circling around the right look but just needs to fine tune to get it there.
>>
>>10189853
Anon, may I ask you to take a picture of the side seam on the inside of bodice? I’m just curious if there’s a way to tighten the rubber bands by my own.
>>
>>10189889
Yeah. They are fully sealed up, but you can generally flip it all the way inside out and get to the area where the lining on the bodice meets the lining of the shirring. On mine, the elastic is poking out a little. But you could easillly take a seam ripper to this area pull the shirring further or just hand stitch it smaller and then sew it back up with a machine or by hand.

I'm not sure how delicate this fabric will be, but it would be an easy fix for cotton since I'd be worried less about snagging, ripping or pulling.
>>
>>10189900
Thanks you!! That really looks like not a big deal to fix. Although I looked up the MCD jsk coords and those look pretty fine on smaller girls, so idk probably I won’t bother doing alterations at all.
>>
>>10189918
Yeah, pulling in the shirring isn't a big deal, and it's probably possible to do this in a way where you can retain some of the elastic in case you want to keep some of the resale value. But then again, I'm sure some smaller people would prefer a jsk that's had a modification to make it work in their favor.
>>
>>10189830
Would be better if the horizontal line art was golden.
>>
>>10189704
i wish they could have made a version in black, i miss all their old prints where there was a black color way with sweet prints still in pastels
>>
>>10189837
>>10189849
I'm 170cm tall with original round cut. On the second button hole on the straps, it almost hits my natural waist. With strap extenders to give 2 or more cm, it hits my waist.
>>
>>10189791
>>10189953
i replied without going thru the whole thread but this is exactly what i want and would love
>>
I'm on the fence about preordering. The cut isn't ideal but I'm afraid I'll regret passing on it once the MTO is closed. Do you guys think it'll be really hard/expensive to get after release or that a lot of girls will be selling theirs off? Should I order just in case and hope it'll be easy to sell if I end up not liking it?
>>
>>10189983
If you have the money you should just do it and resell it after if you don’t like it. I’m sure there’s going to be people who will try to scalp there’s after and you’ll be kicking yourself about not buying it at the original price. If you do the MTO you have until, what, December to decide if you want to keep it?
>>
>>10189987
*theirs
>>
>>10189983
This rerelease took almost a decade to happen. Just order it. Especially if you want the bag. I'm sure that'll at least retain it's value after.
>>
>>10189987
>>10189990
Thanks for the opinions, gulls. Final question... Did you all choose ivory or yellow? I personally think the cut looks better on the ivory colorway but the yellow was my original favorite. Should I just go with yellow then?
>>
>>10190002
I think another anon mentioned before, ivory is more versatile and can be made otome, yellow is a better option to take it OTT. It also depends if you already have blouses, cardigans or boleros that would work with either. I went with yellow.
>>
Got both colors, accessories and the bag as an early bday gift. Feels amazing.
Originally I liked mint the most but now yellow and ivory are actually better. They should have included more cuts and colors though (OP would have been nice)
>>
>>10189983
Honestly, I'd just buy and resell it later if you end up changing your mind. Just look at all of those Holy Lantern MTOs and they're still going for retail or higher after all these years. However, it would be dumb for people to pass on the bag and jewelry as those were the hardest to come by secondhand.
>>
>>10190002
I got both. Yellow is a great OTT piece while ivory let's me tone it down for casual otome-style
>>
>>10190002
I chose ivory since it was my top priority on my wishlist and I probably would've paid 500+ for it with or without the pre-order.

I was on the fence about yellow and debating if I should get it, but I ended up spending the funds I would've put into that on something else. I'll probably hunt it down in another cut later on.
>>
Did AP USA get to stock those flipping adorable honey cake bear ears for the MTO? Still don't see anything...
>>
AP has been doing MTO rereleases on older dresses.
I hope they won't do that with sugary carnival especially the special set.
>>
>>10190184
With how washed out and faded poor Sugary Carnival is getting, it really needs one the most
>>
>>10190117
Dunno why they would, they were a party exclusive and not part of the JP MTO at all

>>10190184
I love sugary carnival but it's already been rereleased. Same with Carnival. Time to sacrifice a goat to the Puppet Circus gods
>>
>>10190198
Considering the quality of PC I doubt they could churn out a MTO for it without compromising something
>>
>>10190192
Were they actually party exclusive?

Not a lolita, but went to Laforet that morning to do an order for a friend. Saw a few pairs of bear ears for sale out on the display, but wasn’t sure if they were meant to go with HC or something else.

The actual party looked like it was just all of Laforet closing at 6:00 for a ticket only shopping event. Did overhear a ton of misinformation flying around between English speaking lolitas though lol
>>
>>10190200
they weren't party exclusive, just only sold on that friday - they sold out pretty early in the morning though
>>
>>10190199
If there was a Puppet Circus MTO it better be $800-$1000. heck even $1,200. I'd pay for it
>>
>>10190200
They weren’t exclusive to the party, they were just released as a extra goodie.
>>
>>10190209
Actually I could totally see AP doing some anniversary special edition launch for it rather than a MTO. And make it for the Chinese only or something in order to guarantee the return
>>
MTO closes in the morning. What a crazy week it's been for HC.
>>
>>10190214
Doesn't it close at the end of the day Monday? (according to AP USA's Instagram)
>>
>>10190215
Oh shit. For some reason, I thought I saw it as Monday morning. Thanks for the correction!
>>
>>10190206
>>10190210
AP candy listed them as "LAFORET PRIVATE Party limited item" on IG
>>
>>10190002
At first I got the ivory set because it's my absolute favourite, but I couldn't help the feeling I'd regret skipping out on the yellow, so now I've got both sets on order now lol
>>
>>10190223
If you email AP usa about the bear ears, this is their response: "Thank you for your email!!
We have received multiple requests regarding the Honey Cake Bear Ear Clips!
Request have been made to Japan since we also think it's a great addition to the Honey Cake series.
Unfortunately we will not be taking mto for the ear clips with the current Honey Cake mto,
but there is a very high chance we will be stocking the ear clips in the future (most likely toward end of the year)."
>>
>>10190223
Only because that Friday was literally a all day laforet private party. They had a 11am to 10pm schedule for the party. 11am to 6pm was free to everyone. Then the actual “party” which needed a special invitation started at 7:00pm and ended at 10:00pm

You know what’s also terrible? lavender chocolate rosette. But it still happened. You’re way too salty for this thread anon.

I’m gonna coord it with something else. I like completing sets too but there are lots of choices out there. I’m super happy desu they didn’t rerelease the socks because now people will have to actually use their brains a bit.

>>10190206
The shop keepers kept saying they were and werent sold out.
After i heard it was sold out from one shop keeper, i saw another pull out more from a drawer

>>10190270
There were three colors. They had plenty of pink left but red and brown were sold out.

>>10189788
Buttersweet
>>
>>10190262
Lavender chocolate rosette is based

>>10190256
OK so my point still stands - they were a party exclusive and had nothing to do with the MTO so I wouldn't expect AP to have included them with the other MTO items
>>
>>10190253
Even if this is true, I'm still not regretting snagging a red pair off fril.
Slightly scalped but not as bad as what I predicted and within the range of what I considered reasonable.
I do still want brown so maybe I'll save that for the possible AP USA release.
>>
>>10190296
This idea doesn't hold water anymore after CTP rerelease
>>
I hope this is the end of it, no more MTO on these dresses.

There should be only 1 rerelease

>>10190253
The ears are kind of shit imo. Material looks like cheap felt and there are better options from taobao.

I thought they would generally not rereleased collaboration piece, but it’s rather an exception for the cause of museum opening.

What is the most popular colorway of Honey Cake?
>>
>>10190431
I think it is the yellow one.
It sits well with the name I feel
>>
>>10190431
I always thought it was yellow but I'm pretty sure it's ivory. It's easy to wear due to it being a neutral color palette and definitely not "in your face" compared to yellow.
>>
>>
>>10190455
“don’t let fashion go to waste” lol

Good luck with that. Viyella is also really hot and I'm from the northern US.

>>10189954
Good to know, thank you! I ordered it because I like the print and I’d heard it fits taller people well. I’m so sick of waist lines hitting around my ribs and making me seem much bigger than I really am
>>
got everything reserved. Its a good day!
>>
>>10190431
Obviously both yellow and ivory are the most popular but I think ivory ultimately comes out on top.

I ended up choosing yellow because I feel like it can be combined with more colors? I don't know how well the ivory would look with sax for example...

Also requesting more toned down coords with the yellow if anyone's got 'em!
>>
I just made my reservation too. I have the money for it, but I will admit that I'm a bit nervous because this is my first time dropping so much on lolita at once (I got the whole set). I hope everything will go well and everyone who ordered will be happy when it comes out. And if not, hopefully we can resell it haha.
>>
I ordered ivory because ultimately I felt like it would be much easier to coord/play down for casual coords. I've always loved the yellow though so hopefully if I ever change my mind in the future, it'll be easier to find because of this MTO. I figure quite a few people ordered both colorways to figure out which one to keep and which one to sell.

bare legged and sunglasses =/= casual, anon

she's wearing animal ears and a bold print cardigan with HC, and carrying a novelty bag. The coord is cute af, don't get me wrong, it's just not casual in the sense that it would fly under the radar of any normies on the street. She'd still stick out like a teddy bear getting honey poured on his ass.

Ap really should release more colours sometimes, there's many dresses i wish came in some other colour
>>
>>10190570
That's not stupid at all. It will be easy to resell if you change your mind later. Better having backups of things that are hard to get/coveted. That's why I got two rings.
>>
>>10190570
Yes, because it's pleather. It will deteriorate even if you never touch the second.
>>
>>10190563
anon, what do you think casual lolita means. theres almost no version of lolita that would "fly under the radar of normies", but it is certainly casual by lolita standards. honestly animal ear headbands are really normal depending on where you live. i see them for sale at claires and forever 21, and not just during halloween time either.
>>
>>10190660
Any tips on maintaining pleather?
>>
>>10190660
I wish AP would go back and re-release some other bag designs. But I've heard this design is a little more sturdy and less prone to age-related deterioration, rather than the softer material they put on a lot of the bags since the design is printed on this one.

I have two of the shooting star bags. I purchased the pink and yellow colorway new with tag in mint condition a few years ago. The straps still wrapped from the store. I wore it once for 4 hours and it was peeling like crazy. Now my lavender one that has had more use is starting to do the same. I have to go over both with leather paint to try to salvage them. I'm very upset about it and would love for AP to release them.
>>
>>10190660
I actually got the original bag and it is pristine. I am really careful with my things and store in a cool area (my room's walk in closet) out of direct sunlight and it never peeled or flaked. Some of my friends had other pleather bags peel though so idk if if this bag was made differently?
>>

>teddy bear getting honey poured on his ass
Omg reminds me of the OTK draft in the previous thread haha
>>
>>10190682
This makes me wonder if I should have even ordered the HC bag. Sorry to hear about your bags anon.
>>
>>10190685
FWIW, I ordered it too. The harder material tends to hold up much better. When you start getting the really soft to the touch kind, they end up being super-sensitive to temperature and humidity changes. Even just the act of shipping the item or travelling with it packed safely away can cause some to warp due to atmospheric changes.

I wish they included the skirt and the bracelet for this MTO rerelease.
The skirt would be a great edition to my casual lolita wear

It really pays to pay for the full set in one go rather than having to search for some pieces.

I regret not getting the socks years back when I got the dress, but at least they're just simple striped OTK.

This is much nicer. Still needs work and a bit of refining since some areas are darker or more contrasty than I'd like. I'm still playing with design elements and placement. I tried removing the flat color areas since I'm worried they won't line up. I tried a scallop ribbon design, but I have a few other ideas floating around. Those will be easier to figure out when I get the painted areas completed.

She comments on listings with stupid shit like “hmmm” or “this is the new cats tea party”, but she thought that being outbid by someone multiple times meant the person was “messing” with her and “rigging” the auction. Which she lost.

probably. now everyone knows the older (better, IMO) cut will never be available again

Does anyone think AP will do another Honey Cake MTO like they did with Holy Lantern? I kind of hope not, at least not anytime soon, because if they do end up doing a MTO of my favorite cut then I'll be slapping myself in the head for picking up the round version.

It's probably what anons are referencing. Hopefully someone that knows the story better can give a more accurate summary.

extremely funny and witty post, how did you come up with it?
>>
>>10190922

Save money and buy the other version if it pops up. We don't really know the full numbers of people buying this, if it's not that popular AP might just never touch it again.

As for Holy Lantern, that was really a special case, (no, not talking about the dress being special) -- the MTO had to be closed down fucking halfway into the week because they'd hit max capacity of the factory, then they had to re-open the same MTO with the second batch having a later delivery date and it still filled up pretty quickly. When was the last time you heard that happen?

With that kind of level of demand, you'd be stupid not to do yet another re-release to milk that popularity. I'm not sure that I'd compare anything else to Holy Lantern's endless re-releases.
>>
>>10190725
I can’t wait!! Def want assbear
>>
>>10191015
Think about all the times Oli has mentioned things like "my mental age is 14/12/7 etc." You probably didn't know her when she dated an underage.

>>10190997
I can tell you that Olivine isn't some crazy pillpusher; the drama you are referring to is basically a fabricated story. That said she is in debt by an absurd amount, so if she is blacklisted from buying dresses you will only be doing her a favor.
>>
>>10190699
I ordered one and if it doesn't suit me, might consider taking it to a tailor to turn into a skirt. I love skirts
>>
How likely do you think a "special set" in sax, red, or grey is in the nearish future? I'm betting on it personally.

However, I'm not sure how well this pre-order went and if we'll get second round. I'm also not sure if we'll get a multitude of special sets or new colors like Chocolate Rosette, since this isn't really Holy Lantern levels.

Did Chinese lolitas even care about Honey Cake? Was there even any hype from them? Honey Cake demand seems like it's almost entirely in the western market.
>>
>>10191042
I hope for a special set but highly doubt it will happen. There was little to no hype from the Chinese and Japanese lolitas, so yes it was predominantly the western market that showed interest. I even heard that Chinese lolitas asked for refunds the moment they found out that the new HC wasn't cotton. However, I'm hoping there was *enough* preorders to show that rereleasing HC was ultimately a good idea to AP headquarters.
>>
>>10191046
How many dresses are normal releases? I know at least 5 other people who bought HC, several bought both colorways
>>
>>10191046
>I even heard that Chinese lolitas asked for refunds the moment they found out that the new HC wasn't cotton.
if the Chinese are complaining that's good for lolitas who want it in cotton, please AP do a cotton release I will buy that too

That's me. The bolero is from Glitter Tale. Honestly, you can commission one from any of the custom order blouse/bolero shops out there. I've also went with Bunny House and some others that are no longer in business. They're great for when you need something in a specific color and you're not in the mood to wait forever for something to be released by a brand or pop up on the 2nd hand market.

friendly reminder that not all shirring is made the same.
half shirring goes from 98cm max to ~120cm max
and only experience tells you where you stand when ordering online.
shirred neckline is a gem but rare. bigger busts need vertical space too.
This mto cut not only has adjustable straps but also half shirring on the more generous end of the spectrum.

just because something has shirring doesn't mean it's going to fit me, a tall (taller than average American male) marshmallow chan.

I can't tell you happy I am that I can own this iconic sweet print without butchering it with alterations.

I will probably start by trying to get the same vintagey kitschy vibe I've always loved from Honey Cake coords, and then slowly work up to doing something different.

I think a huge appeal of honey cake for me was all the creative coords I always saw with it. Come December, I think we will start seeing a lot of shit tier and meh Honey Cake coords, people trying to hard to be creative, or just wearing the full set, a lot of bitching about it being different from the original, "looks like a replica lol meme dress" just like Holy Lantern.. I at least want to enjoy wearing it the way I always dreamed.

Looking for a lot of pancake and bear themed accessories like a basic bitch.
>>
>>10192776
Doesn't it come out in January?
>>
>>10192783
December is the announced date for the Japan mto but it may be late
>>
>>10192784
Usually the international orders are roughly 2 weeks out from the Japanese ones. I've done a few MTOs where I've purchased them on the international site, and others where I've went through AP USA. Typically, I get it about two to three weeks after the Japanese orders.

I believe the items are shipped to to the other shops, and from there, they are processed and sent out to each person who ordered.

Whereas from Japan directly, they would just need to process the orders and ship them out. Then, we'd get a little longer delay as it would need to go through Tenso first. Likewise with a SS, they would need to receive order and ship it to you.
>>
>>10192784
Did they specify when in December? Like beginning or end of the month?
>>
>>10192776
Which are your favorite creative coords with honeycake?
>>
>>10192789
>they would just need to process the orders and ship them out.
Not for Honey Cake. You have to pick it up in December, probably with a passport because that's their form of ID in Japan
>>
>>10193052
You don’t need ID to pick up your dress from AP in Japan, just the paper order form.

What site do you plan on using to get your tights printed? I’ve been wanting to print my own tights for a few coords that I’m missing leg wear for, but I’m not super impressed with any of the sites I’ve seen so far. The reviews aren’t the greatest or they want like $40 to print 1 pair
>>
>>10193772
I use Artwear Labs. They used to offer tights, but they only do thigh highs and other sock options now. It's not too bad since I don't need to order multiple sizes and they fit pretty much anyone. The only downside is the pesky rolling down, but even AP's printed OTKs do this.

Otherwise, The quality is pretty good, the colors are long-lasting and vibrant, they have a quick turnaround, and have been really great to work with. Their website has a lot to be desired, but I do recommend them.

Otherwise, it looks like Artsmoo is probably the other best option for tights but it's a little pricier at $20 a pair.
>>
>>10193776
can you post a google drive folder or dropbox with your designs? I'd like to see them again!
