Starting this thread as the only other dream dress thread is for Euro only.I'm looking for Innocent World's Side Lace-up JSK in black, size M-L. It's kind of old and was a lucky pack item, and the lolibrary page isn't even there anymore... if anyone has it in this size and colorway i'm interested
>the only other dream dress thread is for Euro onlyblink twice if you need help
>>10206230personally i’m looking out for any tasteful rococo-like dresses or better yet, entire sets. Such as AP’s anniversary dress release, forgot wtf it’s called atm. Or Rose Garden or one of the other ones with Rose in the series title... god yes i love roses
kek Moitie's Shirring Ribbon OP is now worth 2k, Puppet Circus btfo
>>10207782One auction doesn’t indicate its worth, there was a few ppl bidding against each other. We will see if it pops up again where it lands
>>10207806In the last 2 years it never went below 88k in auctions. If there are several people going as high as 2k, this is it's worth until said people got it
>>10207565Go on LM and set the search results to start at the most expensive
>>10207977how can that possibly be the red colourway? is there something wrong with my eyes?
>>10208005Yes, it's wine like the one OP posted.
>>10208005am I blind? how can the color balance/lighting/??? be so off where red looks like black
>>10208114do you see scarlet or black?
>>10208118that's 100% black. I can't tell if i'm getting dunked on but there's no way that's red.
>>10206230that reminds me, has lolibrary downsized recently? i've noticed a bunch of stuff that I know for sure (like this JSK) were there before aren't.

>>10208138Tbh it isn’t that rare or wanted, but don’t tempt the scalpers
>>10208118Anon this is clearly dark red, are you okay?
>>10208179>this is clearly dark redNayrt but this looks Navy to me.
>>10208143it isn't, btw the other colourway is wine not red or scarlet.>>10208183only the zipper could look navy.
>>10208138>moitie>bought by someone who doesn't just collect-buys itThere's something like a 9.5% chance for it. At this point I'm more afraid of being reborn as a Moitie dress then I'm afraid of hell. Imagine spending all your life squeezed in a dark closet, never to fulfill your true purpose.
>>10208179I'm the anon who posted it.. thought I was helping someone find their DD and came back to this.. is this the new gold or blue dress meme?
>>10208114Looks dark blue to me. Wondering if it's a translation error, these only differ by one character.
>>10208200either way it isn't the colorway I'm looking for... the search continues
>>10208200Someone buy it so we can solve the mystery
>>10206230>Don't even mention that hideous /design/ replica
>>10208200Koniro is dark blue. De gozaimasu is the rest of the sentence. The dress is dark blue.
I sold pic related for 50 euro when I left lolita years ago and I regret it so much. Please heal my broken heart.
>>10208406Thank you for explaining! I can scrape by in romance languages but am worthless in Japanese. So we can conclusively ascribe the appearance of the word "scarlet" to Google Translate. One can only hope that earlier anons claiming the dress does look red in pictures were trolling.
>>10208143The main Moitie scalper already has it https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/c637345279
Always looking for it on this cut and color.
>>10207782>>10207806It's been reposted because the buyer cancelled kek
Iron GATE blue skirt is up for sale on LM
>>10208118That's black af, m8.

I emailed those interested in this in the last thread. Please check your junk mail.
I wanted to say thank you again to the anons who emails me about the green Secret of Kells jsk two threads back <3 I was able to get it and love it. I'm reviving my search for the A Full Moon Night skirt again now...
still searching~! as always, only looking for poodle parade sailor cut in sax (bonus points for matching accessories) and meta poison cherry skirt in red (and any of the other items)
>>10208913wish you luck anon this is so pretty!!
>>10208126The seller says it's kon, dark blue/navy.
I don't think I ever wanted an item more than this bear.
I almost caved for the other cut but honestly, I really only want this one and it *hurts so much*
>>10210207you go gull https://item.mercari.com/jp/m41969359823/
>>10212688NTA but wow that's cruel
>>10212688I knew this was going to be the version of shoulder ribbon I’m not looking for, goddammit lol
>>10210171You have it??? That’s on my wishlist too but I don’t want to jump over any anons in your queue
I know the white Secret Garden just popped up but I’m holding out hope that the black one exists somewhere.
>>10212716It’s sold already, sorry
Looking for the Dreamy Baby Room JSK in any colourway other than black! MUST come with the waist ties and the detachable star clip. It feels like every time this pops up, it's missing one or the other.
Been on the hunt for AatP's Swan's Feather jsk in black for years, and lately I've also been looking for AP's Ghost Night Bride in purple, doesn't matter if it's the op or jsk
Every time the pink colorway shows up it's like a punch in the teeth
>>10208114The original kanji is 紺, which means navy blue
Super long run, but one have to start somewhere.Looking for unworn or near to unworn condition only.
>>10208913I bought this in white for 7000 yen the other day, good luck!
>>10213612Do you mind telling me a ballpark for what it sold for? I just want to make sure my funds are up for it in case it pops up again
>>10209896theres another one up now
グレージュフラワージャンパースカート from Moi-meme-Moitie, I couldn't afford it when it was released and I've been regretting ever since.
>>10214078how much would you consider for the sax JSK bought new and worn <5 times? i have the white tights too.
Still looking, good luck everyone!Will consider both OPs in any colorway.
>>10215646Would you do $150 for the JSK? I already own the tights in white! Dropped my email in the name field. Thanks!
A bit of rant here.Fuck this shit, yall. It was like three hours since I checked the market last time.
>>10216670i don't think your ss would have bought it that fast anyway
>>10216256I think wunderwelt just sold the meta dress with missing bodice yesterday on lm! good luck on finding it anon i'm rooting for you!!!
>>10214700Hey anon, I ended up buying it for around $200.Just looking for these now! Will shell out for soap bubbles.
>>10216743there are definitely SS that can buy that fast if you're a regular. my record is < 3 minutes from submitting the order to purchase confirmation. really helps to cultivate a relationship with your SS, especially if they work past 5 JST.
>>10217087Which ones? Tenshi doesn't mark down parcels afaik, Japonica is slow and expensive and zenmarket waits for you to pay up front and then waits some more.
>>10217148if those are your sticking points i can't help you, mine doesn't mark down parcels AND she's more expensive than japonica. i'd rather spend a little more than not have the item, personally.
>>10216776Ahh no way! This is what I get for not checking on LM frequently enough. One day...Thank you, good luck with your DDs as well!
>>10217172I rather buy directly from brand than spend that money on fees.
>>10217206then that's the choice you make, and you get a slower SS for it.
>>10217186Don’t worry anon, it wasn’t even close to the same dress, they need to look at the photos more closely.
>>10216786Pink dress is on sale https://item.mercari.com/jp/m69636874736
>>10217210My SS takes less than a day to buy stuff, that's enough for me
>>10217087Would you tell us their name? Is that Tenshi?
>>10217148>Tenshi doesn't mark down parcels afaikDoesn't she? Are you sure? Why not?
>>10217829If she doesn't, I'm glad I never used her service. High value parcels are much more likely to get stolen here.
>>10217148lmao japonica is pretty fast for me. Usu within minutes but at most an hr
>>10217837Maybe it depends on your time zone
>>10217874I think it does. Japonica only responds to me in the middle of the night where I live. If I see something I like during the day and somebody else wants it, they're not going to be able to get it.
>>10217880 I'm a good 12 or so hrs off from jp & All the good shit goes up between 11pm & 6am here. Obvi japonica isn't good for off hr purchases--i use sses that are run by individuals for that, but if I buy something when they're open, it's less than an hr.I think their response time might be better for repeat customers-- still I contacted them & tenshi about a super cheap moitie dress & they were faster than tenshi about getting it.
>>10218419>I think their response time might be better for repeat customersAll SS are like that (except for maybe muuh) with Tenshi and Japonica on the first two places. I wish someone new would pop up.>tfw I had that sweet privileged relationship with FJ
Wasn’t someone looking for this a few threads back?https://www.wunderwelt.jp/en/products/w-48715
>>10218419>I contacted them & tenshi about a super cheap moitie dress & they were faster than tenshi about getting it.Is that okay to mail to both ss sumultaneously when you waste a time for one of them? Plus Japonica asks upfront deposit.
Meta's Die Walkure set in black only
>>10211386Hope you find your bear soon bear-chan!!!! I'm rooting for you
I came here just to cry that one of my DDs (Blue Rose from MM) got sold this morning while I was on traffic going to work. And it wasn't expensive...I'll go back to the endless searching. Guess I'll focus on the OP for now.>>10217148>Tenshi doesn't mark down parcels afaikI bought with her earlier this year and she marked down for me.
>>10211455It’s damaged tho https://item.mercari.com/jp/m58928527844/
I’m still so mad at myself for missing this
>>10217148Tenshi marks down for me when I use airmail, automatically to 6,000 yen because that's the maximum cover for airmail. I don't think she does through EMS.
>>10218419>>10218446They're not getting repeat orders from me if they're slow the first time
>>10219982Japonica responds to me within minutes even off-hours because they know i'm a trustworthy customer. sorry you don't know how to properly shop online
>>10220285Same. As long as it's a reasonable hour in Japan I get replies and my shit gets bought in under 10 min, sometimes less. I've been a customer for a couple years.
>>10219879Japonica responded while I was at work and now I’m 99% sure I missed the listing. press F
>>10220285lmao "trustworthy customer". They respond to you that fast because you already left tons of money on their table, call the child by its name. I can understand the other anon's frustration. How are they supposed to give them enough money to treat them like their "trustworthy customers" if japonica keeps missing out on their orders?
>>10220285Right but why would I invest my time and money in a SS that's slow now, because they might possibly be fast for me in the future? My current SS is fine, and she did great with my first order.
>>10220654nayrt but the idea is>find SS that responds at a tolerable rate>throw enough money at them they become lightning fast for yougoing from same day turnaround from a SS to same hour or even faster is a huge difference in terms of scoring cheap deals or in-demand pieces. you’re supposed to invest in a SS that’ll get you there. obviously if they take 3+ days and fuck your order you wouldn’t stick with that in the hopes they might be OK in a few more months
>>10220686Not every SS is as you describe. My SS was fast for me with my first order and she's never missed anything. I don't know if she buys it within a minute or an hour or 5 hours, because I myself am too lazy to check.
And I only order through her once or twice a year so I don't give her that much money >>10220689
>>10220689yes, my SS was also fast with my first order, ~4 hours to purchase. that’s why i kept using her and now it’s ~5-10 minutes on average. i get an email when i submit and another one when she confirms so i can track it pretty clearly. if you don’t buy anything with competition continue to not give a shit but there are plenty of deals i wouldn’t have gotten if she didn’t have sub-10 minute response time for me now. yours probably is already doing this for you if you’re a regular since you admittedly don’t even look
>>10220690p.s. this still counts as being a regular if you’re consistent enough or buying big enough, as long as your name stands out in a positive way to your SS.
>>10220693>yours probably is already doing this for you if you’re a regularI would hate to think my SS is so dumb about customer service
>>10220695>prioritizing people who consistently give me money is dumb
>>10220697prioritizing people who are already loyal to you instead of trying to get more customers is dumb
>>10220698>be proxy>just one person, so can’t take on too many total clients>word of mouth from happy regulars brings in plenty of new business anyway>two orders come in>do the one from someone who spends 1k monthly with me first, 5 minutes>do the one from some rando buying a single ugly cutsew off fril second i probable won’t see again>it’s like two hours later because i do these purchases between tasks at my day job>some retard on 4chan thinks this is unforgivably bad service
>>10220707>>10220703it feels like bait at this point, because were all right about japonica and other ss's who do this. you wouldn't want to waste time and money with customers you don't know. it's why regulars at restaurants get special attention vs people who have never been.
>>10220692>are shitty buyersLiterally how is that even possible? You have to pay upfront, there isn't much to be shitty about.>muh poorfagsGod this is getting really boring. I wasn't mad at anything. I just said pretending to get favored because you're more "trustworthy" is retarded.
>>10220703>japonica>just one personSeems like someone isn't using them regularly. Nice larp though.
>>10220707While this is true, only catering to your repeat customers and ignoring new customers is a surefire way to kill your business in the long run.
>>10220717While I give you the point about bad buyers, you only seem to reply to throw insults and ad hominems. No idea why you're so angry but you're overdoing it.>And no, getting favored because you’re a buyer who’s established themselves and has paid good money to them before isn’t “retarded”Stop twisting my words. I said pretending you get favored because you're trustworthy is retarded. You get favored because you, in your own words "paid good money to them before". It's about money.
>>10220730>muh iq>still doesn't understand what backtrackingOh nevermind, it's you again.
>>10220733I said myself they've made some valid points. There's using insults and then there's squeezing as much buzzwords in your post as possible to the point it comes off like the poster just wants to let off some steam or tries too hard.
>>10220719>japonica is the only proxy that gets faster for regulars
>>10219274Ah I’m the person who snatched it, but to help you out I just saw someone on insta say they will be selling their op. I’m not into that cut so I’m passing on the message so hopefully a fellow good taste anon will get the other cut. Their insta was interstellarmoment.
Moitie Shirring Ribbon OP in black is on LM!
>>10221710For 500+ you’d think they’d ship it ASAP lmao
>>10221729Some people . . . have jobs.
>>10221729Considered bidding, but the seller is pretty big and she's tried it on. I'll pass, just in case.
>>10221710Damn that’s a hell of a lot for a plain black dress
>>10221739Are you saying this in hopes we won't bid on it >>10221774She could have listed it for double
>>10221763Yeah right? I waited to see what 4channer was looking to sell this and I was disappointed. Sorry not everyone wants your stretched out stuff.
>>10221777Nope, all yours. Go crazy. I have no doubts it will sell.
>>10221780Sorry you’re too poor and have to pretend like you’re considering it to anonymous gulls online to make yourself feel better about being a poorfag.
I've given up hope on the velveteen piece.
>>10221795I've seen it sell in pink and red so don't lose hope.
>>10221817Gah, I know. I've come across it in every color except black.
>>10221777It's next level falseflagging.>>10221780Those are 2 different people.
Do you guys also feel that getting DDs became harsher this days? I can remember a lot of popular things sitting in stock unwanted like three years ago. How do you think what could cause such a change?
>>10221949At least for Moitie, I can say for sure that it became harder to find specific iconic pieces. Maybe it became trendier again? I don't know the reason.But for JetJ I've been luckier? I managed to snatch two DDs this first semester from JetJ that I had been looking for ages
>>10221950I think there has been a ton of moitie pop up recently but it’s also selling fast because of trends. I don’t see much hanging around anymore. I’m sure some of those are bought by people who want it for the trend but there is always a few die hards for that brand.
>>10221739Seller looks p average to me
>>10221949Yeah, but mostly because everything I want is super trendy right now. I also think as the average lolita gets older and money becomes less of an issue, people tend to hoard more instead of selling things they don't use. Hence why a lot of DDs are barely seen and/or owned by people who don't fit them but can't part with them.
>>10221774rolling my eyes real hard, just for you anonny.
