It's that time of year again!Axes Femme packs are going up online this week.https://shop.axesfemme.com/page/axes2021fuku.html?utm_source=ecbanner&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=happybagThey're offering 5 different bags again this year: regular, online shop, poetique, kawaii, and kids.Feel free to share any info on j-fashion brands who are releasing lucky bags this year!
Lodispotto and Misch Masch are both up on hana-bi already.https://www.hana-bi.jp/items?kw=HNB_fukubukuro_20201106&apias_s_id=24729I got Lodispotto's fukuburo last year and it was lovely.
>>10503650Wait, already? God this year went by fast. I bought their regular bag last year, it was okay. Amavel was better.
>>10503650Kinda late on that, most brands like Ank Rouge, Listen Flavor, Secret Honey, etc already had theirs release a month ago.
Yeeees this is my favorite time of the year. Last year I went for EATME and MIIA and was pretty happy with what I got. >>10503650Last year's previews and openings didn't appeal to me so I skipped on Axes Femme...hoping this year's will be better. Amavel is also offering a bag without a coat this time, which is new.>>10503651I haven't gotten a Lodispotto since a couple years ago, but this year's contents sound cute with some flower print onepiece!>>10503843Is it just me or was Ank Rouge's reveal very disappointing?
>>10503870>Is it just me or was Ank Rouge's reveal very disappointing?Wasn't any different to previous ones, but their billion bear prints are getting tiring.
Please Meta, bless us with lucky packs this year.
>>10503843> Secret Honeygod no wait, what was it this year?
>>10503843Isn't it too early?
>>10504028October has been pretty common fall/winter lucky packs for the past few years.
>>10503650just fuku my bukuro up fampai
>>10503901This, the GW lucky pack I got was dope so Im gonna try my luck again.
When are all the lolita brands going to be putting up lucky packs? The last time I bought one was years ago for New Year, but those didn't come until December.
BTSSB released LP news in an email last night. also aatp LP but that's not important
>>10507707Nice.I hope AP has better lucky packs this time around. The last round was so boring.
>>10507707pondering getting a btssb one for the first time, can anyone spoonfeed me info though on what the offered size range is?
>>10507730btssb lp (well. happy pack. technically.) is just the fairy crystal snow jsk i, socks, tote, and combs so. if you can fit that jsk and you can fit brand socks you'll be fine
>>10507830thanks, my fault for not checking out the blog-spot properly (thought it was a random mix of items)
IW's ever controversial happy packs will be up for reserve starting Nov 30th. You are now guaranteed to get a set OP of the color and size of your choosing as well as matching socks. The rest will be random.
>>10508118And the OP that comes with the lucky pack in bordeaux
>>10508118Do you get more than one set with the 80000 yen pack?
>>10508144Yeah you'll get a bunch of other pieces too, but they're random other than the OP.Anons in the past have gotten mainly filler blouses and dresses which have not sold out in sale. It's great if you're a newbie, but it can be a little tiresome if you end up having to sell it all especially since the market in the west doesn't seem very into IW right now
Listen Flavor's just went up:https://listenflavor.com/shopdetail/000000003645
>>10508283Yeah, I did IW once, never again. Just buy cheap IW secondhand so you're not trying to sell trump gobelin in purple for the rest of your life.
>>10508383I would kill for a lucky pack made solely of blouses, socks, and accessories by IW. Alas, IW needs to get rid of their unwanted dresses so I'm passing this year. I remember my friend got it and for a while she was in the same situation as you.
>>10508392yeah... at least I also got an IW bag out of it, so it's not a total loss. How'd your friend manage to sell it?
I would kill for an old school pack
>>10508395I think it was during a time when the market was more open to brand in general and not as oversaturated desu. She sold one of the dresses to me which I then sold again eventually, not sure what happened to the others but she's always had a knack for selling secondhand too. All I know is that she has no main pieces left from that lucky pack.
>>10508423Bait? Or... Retard?
>>10508689what are you talking about newfag? old school is my favorite brand
>>10508430nice. I'll just pray for good RNG to hit me with a sale and wait out the... chaos that is secondhand rn.
>>10508120Man IW used to be better a decade+ ago. There have only been a few prints in the last few years that weren't shit. I used to be a big fan, but what the hell is Yumi Fujiwara cranking out? The cuts/styles/patterns are all atrocious.
>>10508778it's up on their blog - http://baby-aatp.blogspot.com/2020/11/baby-sf-black-friday-online-fair.html.
>>10508783Is anyone going to get the pack for tomorrow? On the fence about the jsk. It's not that great in any color way imo.
>>10508795I could use some more winter-themed dresses, so I'll be going for it. It's cute imo.
>>10508783Where will the packs drop on their site? Under the "new" section I assume...?
>>10508795Nah, only interested in the Kumya one on Sunday, I don’t really care for any of the JSKs
>>10508795I like it in every color except the black and with my luck I’d get black, so I’m passing.
>>10508783Is there a reason why they say you have to do a separate order for the happy pack?
Damn those usakumya happy bags sold out fast! Snagged one luckily.
>>10509562It’s pretty common practice
>>10509621Got one too!>>10509632Ah, I see. I never purchased a lucky pack before so I wasn’t aware of the customs for it
>>10509651Nice Anon! They sold out within 4 minutes I think. I almost wasn't fast enough.
>>10509652Holy shit, good thing I set my alarm a few minutes before, I had a feeling it was going to be gone fastNow to add this to the number of packages I’m waiting for
>>10509677Bless up anon bless up. I did the same exact thing rofl.
>>10508783Their cyber monday sale items are shit
Are AP JP and USA, Baby JP, etc lolita brands releasing lucky pack news soon? Or do we have to wait a bit?
>>10509695Baby USA just ended. IW is still up.Haven't seen anything on AP US or JPand haven't seen anything for Baby/AnP JP.Unsure about other brands.
Rosemarie Seoir’s lucky bags went up this morning.> https://www.rosemarie-tokyo.com/product-list/37The main bag is ¥20,000 and there’s an accessories bag for ¥5000. Also a kids’ one which has been there forever lmaoRosemarie Seoir bags are notoriously hit and miss. I got it for the first time last year and mine was amazing, I got an OP, some shoes, a little faux-leather bag and some nice accessories. In the past there’s almost always been a pair of shoes included but I was really lucky to get the OP - usually it’s random tops and skirts. The accessories bag was a bit less exciting last year, mostly washi tapes and a couple of necklaces. Personally I really like everything Rosemarie Seoir put out, even the really weird shit, and even their simple accessories can be pricey so it’s worthwhile if you’re a fan I think.I’m wondering if they’ll put some of last year’s Sailor Moon items in since they’ve been in stock a long time. I’ve had my eyes on some of the hair clips~
>>10510288>6 items>60,000 yen which is like $550 USDeach item is $100 each????
>>10510325do you know how these bags work?
>>10510318I love their accessories but like you said, the hit or miss element of them makes me wary. I didn't know they always had shoes though!
ffff i missed the fint/aaa packs AGAIN this year
I'm really hoping AP announces their happy packs tomorrow. The wait is killing me. Last year they all sucked.
>>10510334just got my bag! i missed out on Baby so i'm gonna supplement my normie wardrobe instead
>>10510366They usually do a restock anon. I missed out last year but was able to get a restock. You should follow them on LINE too - they give updates there!
me sitting here impatiently for the Q-pot LP.
>>10510380It says that the bags aren't on sale yet. Did you SS say they would get one?
>>10510366lmao fuck, so did I. They always do a stealth release.>>10510387I remember them doing this last year too. Hopefully they’ll give a bit more notice, though admittedly I only really check brand instagrams
>>10510334Man I should have gotten past years, does that mean this year we'll have cow print pieces?
>>10508342yeesh, what happened to the mystery items?
>>10510334it’s depressing how WC changed into a neutral/normie brand overnight
>>10510891There is 3 next to the 4 exclusive items.
>>10510919It really didn't, the current stuff just follows the dark academia trend that't hot in jp too rn.
>>10510477Where have you been, animal prints have been the big thing this year.
>>10510457i ordered through the SS on wego's site
What does everyone think of the BTSSB LPs? I'm considering the 48k yen one, but also wondering if I should just save and wait.
>>10510919WC has always kinda been the Japanese equivalent to H&M’s ‘Divided’ line by way of Hot Topic though? Mass-produced casual wear inspired by whatever kids are wearing in HarajukuNever owned any WC but the past two year’s bags looked good. Last year had some Esther items! I prefer fukus that are literally excess stock from the year rather than a special set. I relish the thrill of potentially receiving garbage and WC’s fairly low-risk, might give it a go this year
>>10511006>>10510944October of 2020 vs October 2019...idk seems like a huge change to me
>>10511232They still release the same stuff as on the right, in fact they just released new pastel color plush hoodies.As said, dark academia is the big fashion thing rn and WC has always been trendy fast fashion.
>>10510344I’m pretty sure you misunderstood what they’re saying lol.>>10510334The cow bag is killing me.
>>10511232Yes, fashion trends change. What is your point?
>>10511273i definitely didn't, unless she just didn't go to their site to see that everything does indeed cost that much, which makes her retarded.
>>10511252How is any of that dark academia
>>10511409Half the current stuff is blouses, blazers, etc which fits the bill.
>>10511252So either they changed to fit a new trend or they are still making stuff like on the right (they aren’t), it’s not both. Dark academia isn’t a thing outside of memes and tiktok trends, and a Japanese fast fashion brand doesn’t care what American tiktok teens are doing. They just became more normie like every harajuku clothing brand.
>>10511503Japan has been aware of that trend since summer, just sayinghttps://courrier.jp/news/archives/205791/
>>10511503>it’s not bothactually is
>>10511503>thinks wc is a harajuku brandWhat's next, H&M is high fashion?
>>10511521they literally say japanese fast fashion but go off.
>>10511522>They just became more normie like every harajuku clothing brand.
>>10511521WC has def marketed itself as being ~harajuku to the tourists that visit takeshitadori
KinglyMask has their fukubukuro selection up:https://kinglymask.jp/smartphone/index.html
Stop shitting up the thread with your WC genre classification autism>>10511522>go offYou especiallyEvelyn seem to be doing things a bit differently this year. It looks like instead of a traditional happy bag they’re allowing customers to pick 3 items (1 top, 1 pants/skirt, 1 OP) from their stores for a few days in January. Here’s what google translate gives me:>There is no regular lucky bag for sale. This year, you can make your own happy bag by combining your favorite items from the store. We are preparing a limited number so please look forward to it. We will inform you of details at a later date. 1st: January 2nd to 4th, 2021 2nd: January 9th to January 11th, 2021. Scheduled to be held at all stores during the above period!! With 3 favorite items in the store ¥10,000 + tax [One piece points / tops points / bottoms points ... total points] will be delivered in the original tote bag on a first-come, first-served basis.Sounds like no online offering :( I liked last year’s bag but didn’t go for it. Was looking forward to trying this year.
Anyone receive their lucky bags yet?
>>10512864which ones? lots of LPs going around
>>10512864Probably won't until well into January with the delayed shipping and all
What is typically in the BTSSB ¥22000 Variety pack?? Kinda want it because ~SAVINGS~? But kinda know I will hate everything?
>>10512979if you read it, it can actually include AATP stuff, so... I wouldn't touch it with a ten feet pole personally
ANGELIC PRETTY WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOUR LUCKY PACKS REEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>10512979I bought one and if I get smth I already have and paid more for I'll be so annoyed.
>>10512979Worst case scenario you can resell the contents and get back your money. Even if you sell the dresses for less than $100 you still get some accesories for cheap.
Apparently there's some sets listed under "lucky packs" on AP SF shop. Is this all they're putting out in the SF shop?
>>10513099except when they give you the items so unwanted that it's impossible to resell for more than $50, if at all
>>10512979In the past, whenever I get these, I usually keep half of the items and sell the rest. I don't make back all of the money (not to mention shipping) but I feel like it's a decent deal ($100-$150) for the items I do keep.However, I think those packs are better if you already have an established wardrobe and can accommodate potentially questionable pieces.
>>10512979I’ve gotten it two years. First year was a cute pastel print with matching KC and a cutsew OP and a couple random hair accessories I sold because they were prints and I didn’t have the matching dresses. I loved that pack. Second year (last year) I got three random AatP dresses with none of their matching accessories and I didn’t like them but three dresses fit the price is pretty good. I also got a cute Baby bracelet and ring set I really liked.
>>10513344Those are old
>>10511232all of these clothes are normie.
Just got my Baby Usakumya lucky pack. It looks a lot better than the images online.
>>10513589pics if you can, or describe it
>>10512998I have shit taste, so I'm fine with that (agree there is some stuff I will probably cry if I get though)>>10513099>>10513356>>10513384I've decided to take the risk! Thank you all for input! Hopefully I like the stuff, or at least as mentioned, get something easily able to be sold on.
>>10513595There's a complete list of items on the website.Sorry for sideways pic. The ita bag is a lot nicer irl as are the pins and other accessories. It looked really cheap online.
>>10513599Idk if it's normal to having the size of the sock printed on the sock, but I emailed baby to be sure. Never seen anything like this before. Other than that though the socks are super cute and have Kumya printed lace and some ribbon ties.
>>10513974That’s hella normal. First time buying socks from baby?
>>10513974They always do that with their socks. It's so fucking ugly but unfortunately it's normal.
Hypercore lp's are online:https://hypercore.theshop.jp/categories/3012952
>>10513993>>10513984Reeeeeeeee. Never bought socks from them before. Is this going to wash out eventually or are they damned forever?
>>10514171It's not like anyone will see them, what's the problem?
>>10513974You sound like an autist
Honey Cinnamon's look cute. There's this one and also a unisex set.
>>10514171are you planning on giving frilly footjobs or something?
>>10514199No, I'm just autistic and afraid that shit will bleed.
>>10514203it does not bleed in my experience, but it does tend to flake/fade after multiple washes.
>>10513589Dang, where do you live that you got it so fast? My tracking just says it’s running late
>>10514264LA area so the shipping from SF was quick.
>>10514268Ah, makes sense, I’m on the East Coast
>>10514277same, east coast and mine's running late. just had another usps package ship too, can't wait for that one to be late as well...
>>10514196Oof. I bought theirs last year and it's huge in real life.
>>10514291>>10514277USPS has been shit recently and generally all the time. I'm surprised I got my bag so fast. >>10514297What size are you anon? I'm taller and not that thin. Have any pics?
>>10513011I'm still waiting as well. Are they going to wait til closer to new year and forego Christmas?
>>10513974R u new fag, they were off after a few wears and cleans. No wonder why brands HATE when foreigners email them, it's always dumb shit like that
>>10514203it's just rubber.
>>10514203It doesn't bleed, it's screen printed on. It will chip/flake over time like the print on a t-shirt.
>>10514160>Love is DEAD, Breakfast is BREAD
Sex Pot lp:http://sexpot.jp/2021fuku.html
>>10514303Sadly no, I gave all the pieces to my friend. I'm a US size XS and usually fit pretty well in japanese brands so I thought Honey Cinnamon would fit great but it's just baggy and lumpy all over. They'd probably fit a US size M/L (my friend is a US size S/M and they fit fine, the shirt was still a little big on her)
>>10514552>were offlolstay angy and retarded
>>10503650Any other good lucky packs you guys are looking forward to?Wtf is AP doing?
IW Happy Pack reservations start *Dec 14, 2020 (Monday)[JST].Anyone finna cop?
>>10515403meh. I kind of want to bc socks and blouse, but at the same time I still hurt from the last disappointing IW LP I got.
>>10515403hmm that's a very reasonable price, but I'm concerned there's a chance of getting that ugly clock or flora dress.
>>10515470170 seems reasonable for 2 jsks and some accessories, but I'm afraid of getting the shitty prints you mentioned as well or something equally ugly. This has not been a good year for IW imo.
I bought Ank Rogue and Lodisoptto LPs. Can't wait for them to get here.
>>10515739I fucked up and was too late to the party for those! Which ank rouge one did you get? They both looks kawaii af.
>>10515742You don't get to choose the color unfortunately. I'd like to get the one with the black skirt but they both look good!
>>10515764If you're able to, please post pictures of what you get when the LPs arrive.
Anyone else getting any LPs this season?
Anyone know why lizlisa doesn't do lucky packs anymore?
Does IW still do Oddment Packs??? Or is that a thing of the past???>>10516742I bought some from Diamond Honey on Taobao, which were mega cheap.. I don't think they're seasonal ones, more so ones to get rid of all their unsellable shit, but my curiosity got the better of me.. so could be a good laugh in worst case. But I also bought BTSSB, so praying that will be decent.
>>10516769I'm not sure, but curious as well. The last time I bought an oddment pack it was great. Nothing even had damage or issues and I got a shitload of items.What types of bags did you get from diamond honey?
>>10515470I like the clock dress, I'd buy it if someone gets a size L and puts it on LM for a fair price
>>10516856I think there have been a few on LM, but unsure of the size.
Moitie's Winter Special SetsPrice: 22,000 yen (tax not incl.)Ordering period: 18th Dec, 18:00 JST to 23rd Dec, 23:59 JST.Contains an OP in either the black x black lace colorway or the black x black/white lace colorway (pictured), a mask and 1 to 2 small items. Total item value is 38,000 yen.
>>10516742Personally ended up getting one of the listen flavor ones and a Wego one.Was tempted my Axes femme and WC, but was too late for Axes femme, and last year I got WC so decided to go for something different ~
>>10516915the mask looks awful if its just the generic synthetic printed one it feels kind of like a ripoff. i had one that i had to stop wearing because it was giving me awful acne and rashes.but its a good deal for the dress alone
Hell Cat Punks lp will go online at 1.1.
Just got my Marble fukubukuro. I got a long skirt, an asymmetrical camisole top, and a bolero. I also got a ton of accessories, which I’ll show in the next post
>>10517399And here are the accessories.
>>10516742I got Axes Femme kawaii, Honey Cinnamon and WC! They are all new ones for me (I've had Axes Femme before, but not kawaii line) so I'm very excited!Feels a bit weird not to get a lolita one though...might still go for one if possible.
>>10517399Bolero is super cute.Can't wait to see what other anons got with in their LPs.
>>10517413Please post your lucky packs if you can, I am super interested to see what is in the WC lucky pack since I got one last year and passed this year. The Honey Cinnamon ones look super cute too.
>>10517955>AP releases LP next week>It's Day Dream Carnival >Cheapest poly ever>Ugly ass cut with shitty collar > $450
>>10517956don't curse us, cmon
>>10518064I'm a prophet, not a spellsmaster
Eagerly awaiting my Baby pack from Japan. Hope it will be shipped within a month. Anyone get any of their packs recently?
>>10510943Those items are 'small items' though, so just accessories.
>>10519163Nope, it says on the website that the mystery items are two tshirts and a small accessory. So there's plenty there.
>>10519316Two western items, in other words Killstar bullshit.
>>10519459>Listen Flavor>Killstar>western itemsAre you new? It's all their own brand items as usual, and it's sold out at the harajuku store already.
Just got a 6%Dokidoki lucky pack. Unfortunately I already have the pink unicorn scarf. I don’t need duplicates, so I’m thinking of selling it. If anyone’s interested please let me know.Sorry about my dakimakura in the background.
Katie's lucky pack coming out January 3rdhttp://www.katie.jp/blog/?p=19170
My Rosemarie Seoir bag shipped! It'll be a while before it reaches me, but I expect Tenso will spoil the contents anyway since they usually open & itemise lucky bags to make sure you're not trying to ship laptop batteries, bombs etc. I also caught a restock of Liz Lisa's Romantic Messages dress in black which I'll consolidate in the same package, so even if RMS send me total garbage I'll still have a dope OP to look forward to.>>10519772Oh shit! I don't remember them doing online lucky bags in recent years? I wonder if it's a covid thing?>10,000JPY & 30,000JPYDepending on number of items this could be pretty good value. I've never ordered from their site before but I fuckin love Katie. Might give this one a go.
Alrighty AP US, time to put out lucky packs.
>>10520004AP SF stock is behind the Paris and JP store by like 2 weeks
>>10519618That butterfly clip looks cute. How much did you pay for it and would you recommend the pack overall?
>>10520012It was about $120 iirc. I really like what I got, so I would recommend it. I got some items I already had such as the pink unicorn scarf, and some accessories like the choker and bunny ear clip albeit in different colors. But it can’t really be helped when it’s a brand I’ve bought from a lot already.The shirt is really nice and so is the skirt, but the skirt is pretty small and wouldn’t fit. It probably won’t be an issue after I lose weight, but I just wanted to give a heads up just in case.The small accessories are cute, although it felt like it didn’t come with as many as previous packs, if I’m not remembering wrong.I haven’t opened the unicorn scarf because I plan to sell it, but I can say that the one I own is super cute and easily my favorite scarf I own.Overall I think it was worth it. If you like the brand, go for it.
>>10519459Are you dense? It doesn't say western anywhere and /every/ year it has been their own items from their own brand.
>>10519618It's tempting for the chance to get a scarf. How is the quality of the shirt/skirt?
>>10519459Thinking お洋服 means Western items kek
>>10521523The shirt and skirt are good quality. No complaints about them really. Same with the scarf I already own.
I got the Meta Special Set, I'm excited. I dumped all my points on it and it wound up being 18000 yen including shipping. Good deal IMO
>>10521607I missed the colorway I wanted by about a minute and I am so pissed... congrats! Hope you love it
>>10521608You could always email them and ask if they have any available in stores, its how I managed to buy squirrels patissier in the cut and colourway I wanted despite it being sold out online
>>10521648Good point! I hear they are pretty good about stuff like that
PSYCHE lp will go on at midnightshop.regulus69.com/?pid=156306402

Anyone receive their lucky bag(s)? Any idea when Japan is opening EMS to the US again?
>>10524365Some people have received their Nile Perch bags.EMS won't be opening any time soon, most likely. It piggybacks off of commercial flights, and those are in the toilet.
Someone else's Nile Perch Lucky Bag
Has anyone seen any pics of the WC lucky bag yet? Seen quite a few others but not this one yet.
Kinda want to go for the btssb variety pack, kinda don't want to get all ugly aatp pieces.
>>10527386Same.Holy shit all these lucky packs and special sets finna destroy my wallet, but totally worth it. So lucky I saved so much this year.
Angel Size lps:https://angelsize.jp/products/list?category_id=&name=%E7%A6%8F%E8%A2%8B
>>10527489Damn that international obesity crisis
That broken BtSSB lucky pack form lmao
>>10527519I'd rather fat girls be able to be cute and well dressed. Maybe feeling good about themselves will inspire them to treat their bodies better if they want to, and even if not, at least it's better than looking like they walked down a random aisle at Wal-Mart and bought whatever they knocked off a shelf.
>>10527386>>10527396Mine is in the country! So should get it in a couple of days. I'll post here so we can all cry together about the contents.I have been searching every day to see of anyone else has theirs so I can guess what is likely to be in mine.. but cant find anything!
>>10528002I found a YouTube video opening from yesterday I think?
>>10528002>>10528015I went to go look for a video and found it https://youtu.be/QYKN0fmrOCwShe only got aatp excluding 1 baby cape, if I got this pack I'd be really upset, thank god I ended up avoiding the pack lmao (would still be nice to see if anyone got any cute baby though)
>>10528031Tfw EMS to the US is completely fucked for god knows how long.
>>10528031I got a fantastic one two years ago (sparkling droplet rendezvous JSK and the AatP A-line cutsew OP Plus some ouji stuff I was able to sell for almost the entire value pack itself) and it really turned me on to blind lucky but last year one I bought a Baby one and an IW oddments pack and they both sucked big time, just lots of ugly dresses in both, no accessories. I bought an AP one this year and haven’t got it yet but with my luck it will be two salopettes like some Japanese lolitas are posting on Twitter. I don’t know why I haven’t learned my lesson by now. Never again
>>10527489>Japanese pudgenheimersWhy is this somehow worse than the typical fatty-chan? I feel alarmed looking at this pic.
>>10528031>>10528038This literally is what makes the packs lucky, anons
>>10528046Japanese/Asian people are more prone to obesity related health complications than other races. Maybe that's why - it's even more unnatural and unhealthy for them to be this size than a white or black girl.
>>10528038IW packs have sucked for years because they haven't actually released anything. They used to be good because they regularly released blouses and accessories to put in the packs alongside whatever dresses didn't sell.
>>10528031That pack is really nice! It’s only because she’s bigger that it doesn’t work for her. I mean the ouji item sucks because most people aren’t into it, but you can sell that vest for like $50. The cape is beautiful, the necklace is cute, and that dress seems to match her aesthetic. I’m same as her, I fit almost all jsks but OPs are often too small so I don’t touch those btssb lucky packs
>>10528031Thank you for sharing!I actually made a whole collage for everything released in 2020 of things I hated and things I wanted (autistic, I know) so I am pissed to see 2019 shit in there too as now my list of shit I hate will be twice as long ughh. I have a feeling I will end up selling almost everything, but my curiosity got the better of me! AH well.
I decided to go for it since I've never done one! If nothing else, if I don't like any of it, it should be easy to resell. : 3
>>10527519The sizes aren't even that large with up to 110cm bust.
>>10528159wtf that's huge, spoken as someone who used to be quite fat with big boobs, I was still under 110. For shorter asians with smaller frames it big enough for all the fatties. you can definitely be plus sized and fit these clothes. Sorry it's not for super morbidly obese burgers
>>10528166Not huge by international standards even when exclusing the US, it's nowhere obese as anon claims even for asians with the 70cm waists.
>>10528175I'm was 170 lbs and my chest was 104cm and I had DDDs, so you most be a toothpick with gigantic fake boobs. I wore a size larger XL to fit my 104cm, if you're wearing a size small you must be buying cheap brands that use vanity sizing and super stretchy materials instead of proper tailoring. Or you're larping. 104cm with never be a size small
>>10528181Nope, not fake boobs, just your average german woman, my ribcage alone is 90cm.
>>10528181Nayrt but at 180 lbs 5'1" I used to have a 110cm bust almost exactly and the angel items go up to Japanese 5L when I wore a JP 3L at the aforementioned size with occasional bust fit issues. I don't see why anons here think that their items are small at all.
>>10528189>GermanI have heard many German girls are pretty fucking stocky before, but I also see some rather small but tall girls from there as well.
>>10528190Their 5L is the 110cm bust, which is small for that size considering that DearMyLove's "one size" oversize stuff goes up to 130cm.
>>10528046>Why is this somehow worse than the typical fatty-chan?idk how this looks as bad or worse than western landwhales
>>10528192Ah, so they're running a bit smaller than most JP brands using the same size labels are then? That's unfortunate, but doesn't mean the items aren't still plus size if they fit what is usually a 3L. Even most brands in the west rarely keep above a 3XL in stock right? Yeah a western 3X is much bigger but it's fairly accommodating for the brand to go up to the measurements it does.
>>10528195Many of their models are all titty like this but then some are pretty fat allover.
Anyways, what other lucky packs yall interested in
>>10528202Does maxicimam do lucky packs?
>>10528189ayrt I'm german by ethnicity (grandparents from there but I'm a burger) and my ribcage is 90cm and I'm still below 110cm but I'm 70lbs heavier than you. Something isn't adding up unless you're 4'8"
>>10528046It's their faces. Something about the makeup and hair is super off-putting and gross. Especially the blonde in the black leather jacket. Also western plus size models tend to still either have or photoshop their faces kinda slender, these girls have no necks
>>10528212I think their faces look super cute despite the unfortunate size.
>>10528046It’s because we’re used to seeing ugly and fat westerners everywhere, but we expect better from Asians.
>>10528217This. People hold Asians to a higher standard because of stereotypes and fetishization of them as slender or small and healthier when not all of them are.
>>10528189I don't think your ridiculous ribcage has anything to do with being German. I'm ethnically German and my bust is 79 cm.
>>10528181Lol what no. I'm a size XL+++ with a bust of 94cm.
>>10528048This is true. For Asians to be in a healthy BMI they need to be slightly lighter than non Asians otherwise the likelihood of developing health issues is significantly higher. There's a good study/chart with the metrics that's googlable.
>>10528190Holy fuck 180lbs on 5'1" frame, that's my height but I'm 90lbs. My size is typically JP Small. How do you balance or move?
>>10528048>>10528195>>10528212>>10528217>post and forget about it>actually get a whole bunch of good repliesThanks to all anons, this was nice.>>10528212I think you've got it, in the sense that this is what made me react. Especially, I noticed when I read your post that their upturned noses somehow look too small or weird in their faces, even though on a normal Japanese person it looks cute. Bottom right girl also looks much better than the others and I'm sure the face thing is the reason why.
>>10528190>>10528276>Anon is two Anons
My body is ready for AP and BtSSB lottery results!
>>10528276Ayrt. I USED to be that size. I was like a US size 14 in pants for reference. Usually I would wear a US size XL in things even though it was big for me elsewhere to accommodate my chest. I was doing a lot of exercise, especially circuit training and weights at the time and feel like maybe part of it was my muscle as well because despite being a bit chubby I didn't quite look as heavy as I was? Or maybe it was all being stored as less visible visceral fat around my organs and I was one wrong move from dying, who knows.I was overweight for sure but literally had no problem moving around like a normal person; biked and walked everywhere, was able to move heavy things at my jobs, could handle about 4 levels of stairs before getting tired. My body shape was just a pudgy hourglass. Maybe my scale was calibrated weirdly or something and I weighed less but I think that the number I got was accurate based on my size and later doctor appointments. I'm also not Asian so that probably also helped me not like, die at such a high weight and not look like a kawaii refrigerator like these girls.
>>10528276>how do you balance or move?ITT: slim people think fat people lose their legs and cease to walk or be capable of basic motor function apparently
>>10528051IW packs suck recently because they keep selling out and their model has always been having extra stock on hand (thus, having more for packs). wtf are you talking about
>>10528294yeah, let us pray together for A. getting the BTSSB LPB. getting good items from it
>>10528589Reee where are the emails
>>10528031Looks like she already posted the items on LM
>>10528503That's what I said, anon...?
Ank Rogue hasn't shipped out my stuff yet which is annoying. When is it going to come?
>>10528589Did anyone win the lottery for the AP special sets??? I haven't seen shit.
My Listen Flavor Lucky Pack arrived today and I'm from Ireland and used Fed Ex to get it here. Only item I wasn't impressed with was the skirt it came in yellow and blue.
>>10516915I'm so bummed this is yet another overly simple dress. Why is there no lace on the sleeves and hem??? Any detailing on the chiffon itself? I have a similar dress from atelier pierrot that, again, does the same thing better and doesn't cost ridiculously high.
Any anons looking to sell off their EATME lucky bags?
>>10529046I'm interested to see what you got, mine is going to arrive in a few hours.
>>10529219Mine arrived right after I posted it;;Paid ¥11000 yen and got ¥37500 value not including the backpack having no tag. It seems like most people got Show by rock shirts, I haven't seen it but this shirt is cute so I'll watch it. And I love the plaid skirt, and how it has zippered pleats all through
>>10529235You pretty much got the same as me I would have preferred the skirt you got. The Yellow and blue is nice just not for me. It's my county colours though so I might be able to sell it to a gaa girl
>>10528072>>10528002Here is what I got! I can't find a stock photo of the AatP Romper, so unsure what year it is or its name? The JSK is not my style, but I think it will be easy for me to sell! I like the headdress and the tights will match something in my wardrobe, so thats fine.Overall I am happy, I might convert the romper to a JSK as its cute asf, but I will never wear it as it is. The fabric is really nice and I love the kitty buttons and I think it would look cute converted! I definitely like what I got over the girl in the video, but curious to see what everyone else will be getting!
>>10529337nice! now I'm curious to how the SF LPs will compare to the JP ones. please oh please let me not get green ghost forest again...
>>10529337Goddamn EMS still unavailable to the US.
Does anyone know what brand these bear boots are from ? I'm having a hard time finding what Japanese store made these or if they're just vintage boots someone bought
>>10529337Are you inconvenient on LM?
>>10528812I won the ivory HC special set
>>10527118Just paid for shipping for mine!
>>10529469>>10529477what does this even mean kek
Has anyone received their results from the SF BTSSB lucky pack lottery yet?
Got my baby email earlier today. Hell yea!
Don't lose hope, gulls! I just got the email right now from Baby for the lucky pack reservation
Got mine! Woo!
>>10529566Exciting! I still haven't seen any photos from the WC ones so i eagerly await haha
>>10530166/twiddles thumbs until my order gets shippedit's my first lp so even if it's weird aatp stuff im still excited to open mystery package
>>10530781ah, the sweetness of youth about to begin their journey into the hell that is IRL dress gacha.personally as long as I don't get night of ghost forest I'm fine.
Has anyone bought from WorldShopping before? I bought a WC Lucky Pack and my shipping fee is about $150 to get it to the US. I know shipping is expensive right now but that doesn't seem right. According to the site's own DHL fee list, my package would have to weigh 11kg for it to cost that much.
>>10531038Its like spending money to get Love Live cards but IRL. Terrifying and addicting and never getting what you want.
>>10531241I got a similar quote for the same item from White Rabbit for what it's worth. It seemed awfully high to me too. They offered Fedex in addition to DHL and it ended up being cheaper, but still high at $80.
>>10531241That sounds like way too much. What country are you in? The last package I shipped from Japan was a coat and other items, it was $30ish DHL.
>>10531241Not world shopping but last year I got the WC lucky bag with Buyee and the shipping was about $120 USD for EMS. It cost basically as much as the bag to ship which is why I didn't order one this year.
>>10531366I should add that I'm in a different country but I can atest to the WC lucky bag being really heavy though due to so many items.
>>10531241They may be calculating it at a volumetric weight instead of actual weight. Especially if the box itself is large. I read a little while ago some SS mentioned changes to DHL / EMS to certain countries were going to be volumetric now, so that may be it. Which sucks cos it basically makes it triple the price it should be.
>>10531384I think this is the case. I heard it described as basically, if your package is over a certain volume or weight threshold, whichever costs more will be the price that is charged for shipping. So even if the package isn't that heavy the shipping might still cost a lot if the box is big enough.
>>10531319My one jsk and the matching tiny accessories cost around ~40 to ship.l from white rabbit. They packed It in a small/medium box and it was insured completely with fedex. It arrived lighting fast though, within 2-3 days. Their commission rates are insane though and I'm trying out from japan currently. So far my shipping estimate is ~110$ for fedex, but I have a pair of shoes, a bag, 5++ dresses and also cutsews. I think it's reasonable. The insurance fees and service fees are going to total about $60, but I spent almost 2000$ so it's really good imo.
>>10531241i'm in the same boat with WorldShopping. i'm way annoyed at their shipping quote but judging from what other anons said and YT unboxings, their LP is giant. i guess we just have to pay out the ass for DHL. assuming i don't like everything i get i can just make it back getting rid of the undesirables.
>>10530179>>10531241Yeah my WC LP was $150 to ship as well, but I don't see any other alternatives. That said, here is my pack (from top left):1. Fuzzy hoodie2. Collared long-sleeved cropped top3. Long-sleeved sweater hoodie4. Cow bag - easily the best part, super soft, very roomy, much cute5. Simple long-sleeved top with embroidered butterfly6. Shiny pants with bottom slits - what's this material called?7. Some sort of OP with (out of frame) somewhat gathered bottom8. Cordoroy hoodie9. Two t-shirts10. Random accessories - a pouch, heart card pass, keychain and phone ring.The good:- Cow. Bag. Enough said.- I don't have a lot of lavender and long-sleeved tops so those pieces are nice.- Some of these items are more of last last years' aesthetic which I am more into, so that's a plus.The bad:- Only one bottom and I'm not partying any time soon.- The shipping.- Most of the items are quite big/for an oversized look.That said, I'll probably offload at least half of these items on here/Kei Market.
Worldshipping got back to me, and the package is only 2kg but the dimensional weight is 10. I really regret going with them now because not only are their fees higher it sucks that they only use DHL. I looked into some other SSs I use and I feel like having WorldShopping sending the package to literally any other SS or even Buyee would save me money.
https://www.toalice.co.jp/product/3694I'm pretty excited for this one
I've been out of the loop, has Meta not released an LP this year?
>>10531666Wtf. Did you order something with large dimensions? I'm really not happy about these new volume based shipping rates. Also it shouldn't cost 100+ for shipping a 5lb box like some other anons have experienced. I wonder if companies are marking the shipping up.
>>10531915They did an in store one but not an online one, to my knowledge.
>>10531917The box is 60cm x 23cm x 37cmI looked into it and Zenmarket offers a similar charge for shipping a box that light but large. However, WorldShopping offered me Fedex and after looking around it seems like it would be cheaper.
>>10531977Mine is 55 32 40 with a weight of 5639, but I was charged for a weight of around 7100 and that was around 160$...they also over weighed the item. I'm trying to get a refund from superbuy for the difference because that's a huge weight difference.
>>10531988Is this for a WC lucky pack?That really sucks that happened to you. Did you find out after they sent the item? According to the Zenmarket calculator at that size weight might not matter that much though. Seems like large boxes just get charged more automatically.
>>10532089This is for my order from superbuy of Taobao items. The instructions were very unclear and they told me to cancel my first parcel then apply for rehearsal shipping but then weighed the canceled package and didn't update the weight lmao. I'm working with them to get a refund. I ordered a lot of shit so the shipping isn't horrible? It's made up by how inexpensive the items themselves are. In my shipping invoice they specifically stated that they billed based upon the weight. I'm not sure what dimensions have to be met to be charged by weight for shipping. I think EMS has the info on the website. I can't recall the exact measurements off hand.
I got my LF lucky pack today and I love it all. The only thing that surprised me is everyone who has posted theirs already seems to have either a skirt or shorts for the bottoms and I got a whole ass pair of pants. Not complaining tho
>>10532379Post pics pls
>>10532379Keen to see! I've seen a couple of people get an entire dress instead of a bottom as well.
Another from WC
Has anyone got their baby lucky packs from japan yet? Post pics!
>>10531918Ah, what a shame
>>10532598Ahh these WC ones are a bit boring compared to last year. A lot of stuff the same colour and just heaps of plain sweaters. My one last year had all over print full knitted sweaters, backpacks etc
Is there an ordering guide for these anywhere?
>>10533793If you're a noob just get the ones that Wunderwelt stocks. https://www.wunderwelt.jp/libre/en/15925/The ordering period for most stuff has passed and you're late, if you're trying to get something now btw
Has anyone gotten their Ank Rouge lp?
Has anyone heard anything about the innocent world LPs yet?
>>10536573Haven't seen anything. Also haven't seen anything from Baby US or JP. My JP luckypack I ordered in Nov is in unknown status.
I'm so fed up with my WC lucky pack order. I asked WorldShopping to quote me a Fedex price and it was even more expensive than DHL. (Even though other sites said that Fedex would be cheaper even with the large dimensions) Now I'm going to see if they can't send it through SeaMail. I'd even ask them to send it to a forwarding service to do this, though some SS don't seem to be able to send domestically for some reason. Other than that I might just wait for EMS to open up.
