Last thread >>10756279>Candy Fairy was delayed until mid-May. AP is slowly delivering them with the exception the black colourway>another AGP Redditor baws when called out on his post history>Akon attendees modeling for AP have to bring all of their clothes and accessories for the fashion show. They don’t seem to be providing anything
I actually think the CF MTO looks better in real life than the stock photos, which makes me glad. Now I'm just wondering how the 60% polyester will feel.Wondering when an update for Nakayoshi Bumny will come, since it was actually scheduled go arrive in May. I hope for my own sanity it doesn't inherit a 2-3 month delay.
I will never understand why angelicfags like this sissy dress so much. It unironically looks like something bodyline would make.
>>10763894It's pretty cool you have nothing better to do than shit on the AP thread. Now GTFO.
>>10763872It will come the last day of May so AP can save face.
>>10763894I don’t even think using better fabric would save this…it’s very “clolita sissy.”
>>10763903It's a re-release of an older style, sissies don't keep up with lolita as a fashion; they're just uncreative and need to steal from somewhere so they grab from whatever comes up when you search for Lolita fashion in google image search. (i suspect they use to steal from vintage children's media, but at this point half of them probably are too young to know who Shirley Temple is)>>10763902 >>10763872Given supply chains right now for all forms of goods, uhhh.... I don't think cargo labeled "pretty dresses" are being marked as top priority to ship first/fastest. I'm not a believer in the world-wide food shortable people are predicting will come in 6 months, but I think logictics might start prioritizing what ships first and fastest based on if it meets a basic need or not.
>>10763991NTA, but it's really not a re-release. It's been redesigned. While, I didn't like the tulle they used before because it looked cheap.. now the material that they used it on looks cheap.Ya'll just are getting tricked into thinking it's a re-release, when it's not and it's working.Though, I never liked Candy Fairy.
>>10763995t. someone wanting to claim this re-release doesn't count so they can peddle their tattered original release for more than its worth secondhand
>>10763998Nah anon, I just literally said Candy Fairy with the tulle looks cheap AF as well. Can you read, bro?The "re-release" is a redesign, it's not even the same fucking dress. AP used to release variations of each style they made, still do. So please tell me how this is a re-release? Lmao
>>10763894desu the MTO and the original design barely look like the same dress. the MTO uses the same heart tulle that every taobao brand does and the cotton looks thinner too
>>10764051>barely look like the same dressThe proportions and placement are all the same. I agree with above anons saying it's a redesign more so than a rerelease, but saying it looks nothing like the original is such a reach. You can tell the patterning is the same. The only real difference is the tulle to lace change, and the 60/40 poly-cotton blend.I like the original more because I'm partial to the heart tulle, but for $300 the redesign makes me happy enough. The alternative is buying a tattered, altered, or faded dress secondhand at this point.
>>10764051It's cute desu
>>10764061Then most of their dresses are redesigns with different fabric. Does that make them the same dress? No. Why do you think this counts, then?
>>10764381Sorry for double post, but holy shit.They accidentally edited out the white part on Lyrical's paw.
>>10764383Rocking horse paw
This week's release includes the store limited Happy Humming Bunny OP set, a gingham solid, and some other accessories
>>10764394I find it funny that they're using the same lace as baby
>>10764381Chinese lolitas+ss's will love this anniversary plushie
>>10764390>>10764391>>10764392Boring>>10764404Why this one in particular? It looks weird
>>10764407Because it's an anniversary item/special novelty. Remember what happened at the Shanghai store?
>>10764410Fuck. I hope my ss brings a riot shield.
>>10764403It's commercially available. Baby almost never has custom lace or trim
>>10764450And the black (user forgot to post a full-length pic for this one)
>>10764450I really hope the fabric is similar to the cotton poly blends that ap used 10 years ago, I own a few main pieces made of that material and it's pretty nice. Doesn't wrinkle and doesn't feel like a raincoat either. Curious to hear reviews, I think it's gonna take a while until mine will arrive
>>10764450Something about it looks different. Maybe the new material for the candies looks harsher?
>>10764479The tulle in the OG was way more airy and dainty, the new one is more heavy looking with an ugly hem. I guess a plus is that the candies on the new one are more distinctly candy-shaped.
Did AP USA ever get the stuff that was lost? I didn't buy from that particular release, I'm just curious about what happened.
>>10765549No. They opened a claim with the shipping service and I think they are trying to hold out for it before refunding everyone.
>>10764450>>10764452I'm pretty sure this is all the same material that Milk eggshell on taobao used for their candy fairy-like release
I'm so anxious to hear about Nakayoshi Bunny, I hope they something in the next week
have you noticed that none of the recent AP releases retain their value
>>10765721Because they're ugly.
>>10765721icp begs to differ
>>10765721God, I hope so. Still trying to find Sugar Cotton Op
MTO for Princess in Love JSK set. It seems to be limited to only the Sendai, Yokohama, Kyoto, and Sannomiya stores.
>>10765960White x Pink
>>10765961Pink x Pink
>>10765962Wine x Ivory
>>10765961I wish they had gone with the OG version, the flower lace overlay always looked so cheap and ugly to me
>>10765960I'm really on the fence. What do you guys suppose pricing will be like second hand when it comes out? Same? More?
>>10765987no1curr about tacky solids. either same or less
>>10765987The value of yen will probably go back up by the time MTO stock gets shipped out.
>>10766151Just pay in full with your SS, problem solved
>>10765987Reserve it now and sell it if you don’t like it. My ss said they are able to get it so I put my order in already.
>>10765961>>10765962It's kind of odd that AP went with two different pink colorways. The original 2014 release just had one pink colorway, which was actually a mix of two pinks (one lighter than the other. I have the original 2014 OP and it's definitely a lighter pink and not white). So, these colorways are actually "new."I wound up going with the white/pink because I like the contrast and it's more versatile. Since I have the OP already in pink, I wasn't too interested in the solid pink one, but I wonder what the most popular colorway will be. I actually wish they included ivory in the MTO.>>10765987It'll probably be around the same price as long as the reservation doesn't hit cap. I would advise you to get it now as an MTO instead of playing roulette with the secondhand market though. There's always a chance the MTO won't be offered with the Paris or US stores too, which will make it "rarer." It's also ~60,000 yen, so a lot of people are going to complain about not having enough money to buy it with little notice/only a 3-day reservation period. (People complain about not being able to afford a 30,000 yen dress, so I'm assuming this will be the same). So basically, it won't be like Sugary Carnival where a bunch popped up secondhand immediately. At least, that's my prediction.
>>10766162This won’t hit anywhere near the cap. The price as you mentioned is a poorfag deterrent and it isn’t the first release for this dress, which was the most popular. I doubt many of these will wind up for sale on the Western market. The three listings that crop up will be overpriced because it was an expensive MTO. That’s my guess anyway.
>>10765987Unless the yen tanks more, it will go for more because of the exchange rate. I also agree with the anon that said few will end up for sale because people probably won’t spend $500+ on something they’re on the fence about. I’d get it now via Japan if you want it. The exchange rate will knock off over $100 bucks from the usual rate and the yen will probably go back up once tourism is allowed again, which will likely happen before the MTO arrives.
More store displays that hurt my eyes because the lighting is so bad
>>10766221Here's the White x Pink colorway that looks super blown out and orange, and I'm hoping I didn't just order an awful colorway.
>>10766183why would they only cover that one ribbon in all lace so it looks like a completely different color from the rest of the dress? What is happening to AP?
>>10766265Anon... it was like that in the original release. It's not new. Having said that, the red/wine colorway is the worst and I swear AP only included it over black and ivory because Chinese lolitas love red.
>>10766162These colorways aren't new, the original 2008 release had both pink x pink and white x pink.
>>10766265it doesn't look as out of place on the original
>>10766267the 2009 release looks less shit
>>10765960Wow this is visibly worse quality, especially on a dress without a print
>>10766280it only looks out of place in red
>>10766281When I said "original release," I'm talking about the original release of the 2014 version.
>>10765963I like how the bodice lace is laying all funky and the chest bow is lopsided. They really went ahead and phoned it in
>>10766296I swear everyone in this thread is new. This is literally the 2014 stock image. For whatever reason, AP just used it again.
>>10766297>I swear everyone in this thread is new.This board is the problem, nowadays. But it is ironic having newfags complaining about new AP, as if they were around for old AP.
>>10766297Idk I never cared about this release, so I didn't pay attention then and it's even more funny that they phoned it in back in 2014. Being new or old doesn't mean having a perfect memory, not to mention that 2014 wasn't even that long ago
>>10766337Sorry you got called out for acting new but it’s clearly the old stock photo. Take your L and calm down.
This week’s release.
>>10766684Jesus every color of this except pink is fucked
>>10766682>>10766683wow what a shapeless mess. at least the bag and socks are cute?
>>10766698The bag is hideous and boxy. Just burn it.
>>10766683Damn Risa, set down the fork fatty.
I checked AP USA’s website and everything they have in stock is just hideous, it’s sort of incredible.
>>10766723Bunny College: Freshman 15But seriously that set would make anyone look fat. It's a terrible release.
>>10766683I love this. I won’t buy it because I’m about 10 years too old to pull it off, but I love these idolshit releases
>>10766743you'll pull it off fine because it's frumpy as hell.
>>10766459Oh sorry i wasn't the original anon, actually
>>10766683The skirt and ribbon are kinda cute but that top is not salvageable
>>10766781looks like taobao
>>10766781Mine came today. Overall the fabric doesn't feel like their older cotton. It's actually very thin. You can see the weave if you look super close. The cotton on my miracle candy, wonder cookie and rose afternoon are all softer, thicker and more breathable.
>>10766828The colors seems very close to the sample photos but i think they do change their saturation. Their sax is a bit more vivid in photos. It didn't matter if I used daylight, cool white or a more warm yellow I couldn't get the hue that was in most of the photos. I put it against the orange fabric to get a clearer shot of the lace. My camera didn't want to focus.
>>10766828>>10766829Thank you for taking photos, anon!If the sax is less vivid, I'm actually happy about that. I'm a little scared about the fabric though. I think the thinnest cotton I've felt is Pop Check. The gingham fabric is so thin, it feels like a dollar store table cloth. Wonder Cookie always felt pretty sturdy to me, so I just hope it's somewhere in between.
>>10766864AYRT to give you a closer indication of fabric. I also own Bodyline L438. It feels thinner than that and has a similar weave pattern. I think the fabric is closer to that dress in terms of texture and visual appearance. It's not a bad dress but if you were looking for it to be close to the original, it's not. I will say the zipper, buttons and finishing are good.
Nearly everything selling out from this week's release goes to show that the western market is tiny and our opinions are irrelevant
>>10766781Imagine how bad her armpits smell under all that itchy polyester.
>>10766904I guess the thinner fabric could be a positive if it makes the dress more bearable (the 60% polyester isn't good for hot climates). I don't own any bodyline, so I'm not sure how thin that is. I guess I'll see in a few weeks when my MTO is here.>>10767028I kind of gasped that the mint/green colorway of Candy Stripe sold out. It's such an ugly color. I hate it.
>>10767037asians barely sweat anon. seriously they have a gene mutation for it
>>10767058the gene mutation is for body odor actually, if you never sweat you would probably die from heat stroke or your internal organs would shut down if you ever catch a fever
>>10767066Oh wow, look out everyone! The sweat doctor is in the house
>>10767058>>10767066yeah most East Asian people don’t produce the protein which causes BO when broken down by skin-dwelling bacteria. The subject seems to be a content trigger for some anons though, last time I brought it up the thread devolved into a shitshow>>10767120Case in point
>>10767128anon, what you're saying isn't scientifically correct. for one the gene is recessive, and the reason is because of less oils in the skin, not a protein. please research from trustworthy sources next time, so you don't sound retarded.
>>10767058What an idiot. They sweat, retard. Not all of their sweat has an odor.
>>10767140>for one the gene is recessiveIrrelevant when 98% of a population is carrying the recessive allele>not a protein>gene>not a proteinSounds great. Please tell me more about these trustworthy sources you’ve consulted
/cgl/ - cosplay, egl & fighting about asian sweat
>>10767169They need to stop nerding out about it now
>>10767177It's so horrible :( The candies and just the material is not it
>>10767028I’m surprised about the cupcake bag. It doesn’t look like AP, it looks like something from Claire’s or a legit children’s store.
>>10767215THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
>>10767169Just proves how much of this board is actually scrotes with yellow fever
Well. I guess no Nakayoshi Bunny update until June.>>10767192I like the original better, but in general I don't hate the MTO. The candies actually look like candies now. Before the hard tulle just made them look like a mess.I think the MTO would have been better if it was just the JSK. More people wanted it and the tulle replacement would have been less noticeable without the OP's sleeves.
>>10767218it's clearly women with yellow fever, of which the lolita comm has tons
>>10767192>>10767260am i blind? where are the "candies" on this dress that everyone keeps talking about? all i see are the pearls and the little hearts on the tulle
>>10767260I wonder how they choose which designs/colors to release since it seems to be limited aside from SC. I’d say they’d make whatever is cheaper but it seems like OPs would use more materials so I’m guessing it’s not that. And if they’re making more than one colorway it’s weird that they’ll leave one out. We’ll probably never know though
>>10767285oh fuck i'm dumb lmao ty anon
>>10767290No problem, I honestly didn't notice they were supposed to be candy shaped either until the MTO changed the shape slightly.
Has there been any word about Yumemiru Fantastic Balloon? It was supposed to be arriving in April, but i vaguely remember hearing it was delayed until May, but I can’t find any email saying it. Has anyone heard anything?
This is a shot in the dark and I apologize in advance for requesting spoonfeeding, but where is the best place to find secondhand lolita these days? Wunderwelt? Lace market? I really adored Day Dream Carnival in purple when I was younger but couldn't get the money to get anything more than lucky bags. I remembered how badly I want it recently and thought I should start looking for it if I want to finally get my hands on it. Does anyone know where lolitas sell now? Doesn't matter if its Japan or anywhere, I really want any of those dresses (or anything from the set at all) in the purple colorway.
>>10767571Lace market is ok, depending on how popular what you want is/was and how much you’re willing to pay. Japanese second hand sites are usually cheaper but require a shopping service and with shipping it may end up being the same price (if you’re only getting one thing vs. multiple items shipped together). I think most people just look everywhere and buy what they want when they see it for a price they’re willing to pay; that’s what I do at least. I haven’t paid above retail for years although I don’t really buy anything that’s popular or sought after.
>>10767580I was moreso asking about specific websites. I don't mind buying from Japan through an SS, but I don't know if there's some new website people like to use most or a place that seems to update more often than other websites. I'm honestly willing to pay a lot for any of these pieces, I just can't seem to find anything but 1 listing on lace market. You mentioned looking "everywhere" but I guess my problem is that I'm not sure where "everywhere" entails. The EGL sales LJ seems to have been dead for years. I'm just out of the game, so any recommended places is appreciated.
>>10767602LaceMarket, Mercari Japan, Yahoo Japan, Closet Child, Wonder Welt. There’s the Chinese second hand site that lots of anons use but I don’t so I don’t know the url or what shopping service to use for it. I think that’s the major new one that people use. Sorry, I’m too lazy to deal with multiple shopping services so I only deal with Japanese sites and Lace Market.
>>10767613If you’re this new and don’t know the names of half the second hand sites, don’t bother replying. You’re embarrassing. >>10767602You won’t need an SS unless you’re buying from Japan. The majority of personal SS in Tokyo closed during the pandemic. The one I use had success with getting everything I asked for. Otherwise be patient and check second hand sites.
>>10767623I'm aware of the SS thing, which is why I specifically said "buying from Japan through an SS." Could you please tell me what these other secondhand websites lolitas use are (besides for the obvious ones other anon listed)?
>>10767669That's it really. Maybe ask in the jfashion stupid questions thread next time as this is the AP thread
>>10767602I mean, there’s no place that just going to have tons of listings for everything you want all at once. Popular and well priced items get scooped up in seconds so it’s pretty much a waiting game. Don’t be a cunt and raise your nose at the one person who offered you spoon fed help by calling it “obvious”.
>>10767571>>10767602Day Dream Carnival honestly shows up a lot secondhand. Quite a few have been on Wunderwelt recently. But as other anons have said, buying AP is just a waiting game. The best wardrobes aren't really built with money, but with time. There is no fast track, and I think a lot of people new to buying brand don't really understand that.Also be aware in general that people won't share many tips, other than the obvious. The market is oversaturated with buyers now, and getting a good item sometimes means protecting resources and keeping secrets.
>>10767669Aside from the well known stores that were mentioned, there are a handful of small ones based in Japan. I don’t think anons will share because there’s no reason why you can’t find them yourself or be patient like the rest of us.
AP Paris announced the Princess in Love MTO and the estimated delivery date is June 2023. An entire year.Japan's was February 2023. I'm happy I went with an SS.
I'm curious because my Candy Fairy MTO is still in the mail - where does the fabric tag say it was made?
>>10768572Here ya go
>>10768123Melty Berry MTO is a year too. Just get Hidden Princess from Meta
Nakayoshi Bunny is delayed until July
>>10768681I knew this was going to happen, but I'm still immensely disappointed.
>>10768681I called it albeit they did it a day late >>10763902I knew they would post about the delay as late as possible.
>>10768647That dress is ugly though
>>10768647Hidden Princess has misleading stock photos. It’s a raschel lace monster. I was sad when I went to pre-order it and ended up not doing it because of how ugly it was. The lace looks horrible.
>>10768707Anon some of us like raschel lace.
What the fuckhttps://twitter.com/JuffuTuffu/status/1168579578388000769
>>10768840love seeing stuff like this when i'm considering buying a dress. kills my interest instantly.
>>10768842Congrats on sticking to your no-buy nonny
>>10768681and that's why you don't manufacture your shit in china
>>10768780I like it as well. The kind Meta used for HP needs to be burned however.
>>10768840The fuck is wrong with her neck?
>>10769065Shut up you brain rotted zoomer. They’re referring to the lockdowns happening in China. Go outside and breathe fresh air because holy shit the reaching.
>>10769078Anon, don't you know if you care or think about world politics then that makes you a racist.Same zoomer is probably calling for Russian people to be killed and an advocate of war. This is far more racist than anything else, but war and racism are right in with one another.
>>10769146Maybe it's how it's styled, but it doesn't look great here. I'm glad I didn't get this.
>>10769146>>10769221This looks like a garbage sack, it's so bad
>>10769171wtf is this projection? >>10769078 has a point but you’re a brain rotted old hag bringing up killing people for no reason. literally not related to lolita whatsoever
>>10769221>>10769225Why are either of you surprised. This is the notorious brand ita.
>>10769146I don't know how tall this person is, but the OP looks so short. Like shorter than other AP OPs. RIP me.
>>10769146One of her best looks yet. This makes me want to buy Candy Fairy suddenly.
>>10769146why are the shoes shopped out
>>10768644>65% polyesterAP has really gone to shit
>>10769263Maybe she's wearing open toed shoes and censored the toes.
>>10769263>>10769277The shoes were absolutely filthy
>>10769278The shoes were fine. They’re from AP. OP is just a seething poor.
>>10769263Feet are banned from the internet
>>10769146Is the bear AP too? Looks mighty cute
>>10768920Meta is famous for really nice, soft raschel lace, how fucking new are you?
>>10769356Meta has its own thread. Take your sperging about garbage lace there.
>>10769333What about Mana-sama's feet pics
>>10769146So much brand. Impressive
>>10769409If only she could coord it. Brand itas are a travesty.
Summer Lookbook releasing as well
>>10769429I'd get this if it wouldnt look so awkwardly huge on my head. Damn.
>>10769437Waiting for scans
>>10769430God I hate these. This release is garbage.
>>10769437bold of them to put this ugly af set on the cover
>>10769489gr8 b8 m8
>>10769494>>10769500Oh, y'all actually like this cheaply crafted baby stuff? Okay you do you I guess
>>10769430These are a little too easy to make myself for $60..... Idk maybe Im just not in love with lolita anymore but this shit seems exorbitant, was it this pricy in 2008 even with inflation?
>>10769437The print on the right looks like it could be cute, excited to see scans! The page on the left is Soap Bubbles it looks like.
>>10769513I think the clips are cute, but they really do seem expensive even with inflation and the current exchange rate.2008-2012 candy clips were 2,200 - 2,3002017-2018 they were 3,200 - 3,500 yen (they have gold charms added now)And now it's 4,950 yen
>>10769426Is it just an optical illusion or is the bodice shorter than the original?
>>10769484It’s not even for sale yet retard. It’s barely 8 in the morning in Japan and China.
>>10769599Yes, it is. That's because there is less room for the shoulders and it's higher up on the body.If you're tall, I would not recommend. It's going to suck for you. If you didn't fit into SC OP, this is not going to be good.
>>10769600Why are you acting like I don't already know? The date is on the lookbook?? And it's obvious at what time.Don't embarrass yourself.
>>10769634You’re the one verbalizing how stupid you are with international dates and times. I was going to dump pictures from my copy that I just purchased. But you can sod off with your cunty attitude.
Scans from the lookbook are starting to make their way online - New laundry print, Jelly Candy Toys rerelease in new cuts and colors, and the Sailor Cats dress on the cover so far
>>10769677Would you mind posting the pics, nonnie? The SS on weibo who usually posts them can't upload anything besides the front cover today for some reason.
>>10769693Was waiting to see if more Chinese lolitas were going to post more scans because I think I'm missing some, but here's what I have so far.
>>10769693>>10769697Thank you for doing god's work.>Jelly Candy Toys rereleaseMaybe they'll finally release that jelly/transparent bag from the fashion show that ever surfaced.
>>10769697>>10769699Thank you for posting pics!Excited for the new JCT cuts! Wish they would've kept the lyrical bunny lace, but hearts are cool, too!
>>10769705Oh shit, I forgot to post the Laundry dress.
>>10769708*never surfacedAlso, I feel like the photoshop is getting out of hand in this lookbook.
>>10769713>detergent necklace>detergent embroidery clip>detergent bagIs AP trying to tell all the stinky lolitas to wash their brand?
Who is directing these photo sets? Do they think that time will rip apart if Risa doesn’t look pissed off or , gasp!, smiles? I miss the fun happy photos with models like Amo, Risa looks so unhappy and I think it makes these shit designs look even worse
>>10769713That laundry detergent bunny bag tho
>>10769713My hope in there being a jsk is diminishing
>>10769704Looks like pajamas
>>10769726We got a JSK with Candy Pop, it could happen
>>10769710Ahh this is so stupid but SO cute!
>>10769691>>10769698>>10769700> Jelly Candy Toys rerelease in new cuts and colorsFuck yes, I’ve been waiting for this>>10769710>>10769713This is great
>>10769732We saw the candy pop jsk in Spoon though iirc.
>>10769732>>10769751Yeah, the Candy Pop jsk was in the Spoon magazine.I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope AP will surprise us with the JSK, but I think it's unlikely at this point
>>10769698>>10769699The cuts and colours are ugly as sin. Classic AP fucking up as usual.
>>10769705Gives me some Gunne Sax vibesThe laundry print is amazing I love it
>>10769726The tops of these socks make them look like stripper attire or cheap sexy clothes you'd wear in the bedroom
>>10769677You're a bit insane and you seem to have difficulty comprehending things
>>10769484It's obvious that this just means that someone is excited/literally waiting until the lookbook is released. >>10769600I don't get what's confusing anon here
some people here just want to fight about everything
>>10769713So cute!!! She's wearing little embroidered clips in her hair that look the bear and bunny from the print, plus there's a necklace and ring with the bear on it. I'm already getting excited about buying everything from this release.
>>10769785Welcome to cgl
>>10769783>>10769784Sorry you have a hard time taking your L. Keep samefagging mate.
>>10769785Agreed but like another anon said it is cgl >>10769792Yo chill
>>10769726Why do the scallops look so fucked
>>10769785Are you new or what?
>>10769797They're a bit square. Hopefully it's just a bad sample
>>10769713Holy shit I love this
>>10769797>>10769801>>10769810Sad, considering the red OP's scallops looked pretty fine and round
>>10769705Help shes drowning in the sleeves
>>10769713I like this in theory, but I just know it’s going to be huge and the material’s going to be shit.Might pick up secondhand if I can find it cheap enough.
>>10769898The cut looks identical to neon star diner which is not that big
>>10769899Neon Star Diner is huge on me..
>>10769898Does anyone know Risa's measurements and height? I love this OP cut but don't know if it would work on me due to my height.
>>10769713the bag is so cute!
>>10769904Are you short or tall?
Finally, AP, some good fucking food.
>>10769922OPs on giraffes rarely fit
>>10769904Risa is 160 cm tall. How the OP fits you lengthwise will also depend on other factors like your shoulders and chest. From my experience though, my AP OPs hit me at the same height as my JSKs so there shouldn't be much of a difference if you already own dresses from them.>>10769900Neon Star Diner had the same measurements AP's OPs have had for the past ten years and came with a belt jfc quit larping.
>>10770003Nope. I just took Neon Star Diner which I own and a 2012 OP, put one on top of the other, and Neon Star Diner is a good inch bigger in the bodice. That’s flat measurements too, so x2. It’s a known fact that AP’s measurements have been getting larger. I’m on the thin side of average but I’m not super tiny like Risa.
>>10770011Humans as a species have been getting progressively taller for centuries. AP caters to it's main demo and doesn't gaf about anyone outside of that so I think it's pretty logical to conclude that Japanese and now Chinese lolitas are getting bigger on average. Sorry that you're uwu so smol you're swimming in a 92cm dress, maybe AP isn't the brand for you anymore.
>>10769713AP says to wash your fucking brand pigs
>>10770109Nta but imagine seething this hard at the mere thought of someone being skinnier than you
>>10770109>she doesn't know baggy shit is on trend in chinakek
>>10769146Why did you censor this? Everyone knows who this is. Are you okay anon?
>>10769698i actually love this in black, hated it in every other color, can't wait to see the jsk
>>10770259I always hoped they'd release it in black and I'm not disappointed. I like salopettes too, I have the original JCT white salo and I'm excited for the new cut!
>>10770193Um, weird reach but ok.>>10770212Lolitas have been complaining about dresses getting longer for years at this point, yet somehow super short dresses stay trendy with clolitas. Pretty sure it's not that.
>>10770491Tallita here. Not a soul has been complaining about longer lengths because AP has been mostly the same length in the modern era (excluding tea length dresses of course)I’m sure you meant to say bust and waist sizes have gotten bigger, because gulls have screeched about those
Does anyone have any advice to how make an OP fit nicely? I mean AP recent OPs don't fit me as they're too big and and tying the waist ties as tight as possible isn't really pretty from behind
>>10770608If its that much of an issue, just get it altered to fit you.
>>10769900It’s large in the bust but the underbust/waist is still regular AP size. It’s also big in the arms but not enough to accommodate actual bigger Lolita’s. It’s artificially large, tailor made to look oversized on a dainty thin girl, not to look good on plus size Lolitas.
>>10770639So nobody wins, great.
>>10770608If they’re too big in the shoulders, there’s not really much you can do except get them altered like >>10770621 said. And even then it’s not the easiest alteration. I sold a couple for that reason.
>>10770662I honestly don't understand why they make OP so big even tho it won't fit bigger lolita because most of time the waist won't sit at their actual waist but it will end up mid breast lengthI have a feeling that they think if it's bigger more people will be able to wear it but it will actually look good on no one lolToo big for thin people and not designed to look flattering on big chested lolitas
>>10770800Because it’s not meant to fit bigger people, they’re meant to look baggy on thin people because it’s popular in China.
>>10770800Cope and seethe. Buy their older dresses with smaller measurements. I like the baggy direction AP is going in.
Feeling weird right now because the Candy Fairy MTO looks so disproportionate on me. The bodice is too big, but the skirt part is so short with a petticoat. I have a whole wardrobe of old AP and this is the first time I really feel like a dress makes me look like a toddler.Anyone else feel done dirty by the MTO? I'm 167~168 cm tall. I hate peeking bloomers and underskirts because I think they're ugly, so my thighs are just out on display.
Neon Star Diner is supposed to be baggy in the bust because when combined with the belt it gives the illusion of an exaggerated hourglass figure, which lends to the 50s inspiration. Look at how the new OP with the same cut fits Risa >>10769713. Enough sperging about sizing.
>>10770934What are the rest of your measurements?
>>10769705Digging thisEvenutually, an AP long sleeved OP with sleeves long enough for me
Has anyone seen any more scans from the lookbook other than the ones already posted here?
>>10771215All of the scans have already been posted.
>>10770934I didn't have those feelings but I had to tighten the shirring to more than half. Even with the neckties done, the neckline has an awkward shape. The bodice is huge in comparison to older stuff. The skirt seemed comparable to older skirts. It's longer than my sweet ribbon strawberry op. I don't think anyone but other lolitas will be critical of the fit. For ref bust 86 cm, waist 68cm and height 167cm. I would suggest people look for the original over this one but I don't hate the dress.
>>10769711They have entered that poor Baby model levels of shoop on the face. At least this is done better?
>>10771308Speaking of that Baby model, I noticed they toned down the shoop on her for the strawberry flower garden (or whatever it's called) that was recently released. She actually looked human instead of like an alien ghost
>>10771241I think the thing bothering me really is just how out of proportion the bodice is to the skirt. It makes me feel like I should be shorter and fatter? The elastic for the lace sleeves also just kind of goes everywhere and doesn't want to stay on my shoulders (it almost feels stretched out already, even though I know it's not).Oh well, I guess. It scratches the CF itch.
>>10770869Congrats on having shitty taste
Looks like JCT is not the only print from 2021 that’s getting a rerelease soon.
>>10771756Angelic Prophet is that you senpai
>>10771756Happy Garland in new cuts and colorway (purple) ?!
>>10771476I'm sorry about the sleeves. Maybe use some light colored nail polish and paint some saftey pins to match the sleeves. That way you can hook them around your elastic and bra straps to keep them in place without the pins being noticeable.
>>10771784Please fucking no. The red colourway was the ugliest thing I have ever seen. AP would ruin another colourway and I would bet money on it.
>>10771756Moco Moco Bunnys? Usagi no picnic?
>>10771756It’s a shame there wasn’t a single memorable print from 2021.
>>10772011Royal Berry was cute
>>10772024It was shite and went to the discount bin.
>>10772024royal crown berry was 2020
Laughing at everyone who spent $300 secondhand on this stupid thing.
>>10772414same lolI would like to get a bunch of them to put all along the base of my ceiling walls.
>>10771784You were right! No lavander colorway, but we do get cute parkas!
>>10772431You could probably just make them. I think they'd look awkwardly small on a wall and are still like 70 dollars a piece.
>>10772520sainte is a crazy tranny.
nonnies, does AP Paris still combine shipping for the same release and refund the difference, or did they stop?
>>10772537They do for the same week so you should be good; they had a problem with people trying to combine shipping for orders across different weeks and stopped doing that. You can still email them to double check!That being said, I tried adding the brooch to my cart so many times and it just wouldn’t go in, got the JSK and headpieces I wanted though!
>>10772540congrats on getting your jsk and headpiece!
>>10772537I think they'll combine up to 2~3 orders these days but I can't remember the exact number. Allegedly they refund the excess shipping but I always felt like they never fully refunded it and held back a kind of hidden "admin fee". I wouldn't care if they were up front about this - combing through all those orders must be tedious as hell.Is the £/€ just super shit right now or is AP Paris more expensive than ever? I got some accessories I missed on the first HG release because I didn't want to fight bots and hadn't seen them sold since, but I wonder if I would've saved money buying from fril scalpers.
>>10772543£ is definitely shit against $ right now, it's causing the surge in fuel prices. € is probably the same but don't quote me on that.
>>10772540OMG I'm and idiot and thought this would be a MTO for some reason and not limited stock...
Is it just shoop or does Cream Soda Mermaid have glitter on it? I hadn't looked at closeups til now.
how did everyone do with the AP USA drop? I'm surprised Retro Cafe was so popular
>>10772607It has reflective hits sewen in. It's actually very cute in person!
>>10772607It’s like a clear metallic fabric sewn into the fabric. It’s really pretty in person.
>>10772615>>10772617Dang, I'm really bummed I missed it then. I was gonna grab the white JSK from the USA drop but looks like they didn't have much stock to begin with. The pink OP was there one second and then just vanished the next
>>10772622It’s the same fabric as Dream Marine, very adorable! I hope you can get it later, there’s still the secondhand market!
>>10772615>>10772617wish they had done this w/ Galaxy Cocktail print instead of just using the white holographic-ish fabric on the borders
>>10772607>>10772615>>10772617>>10772630I honestly always thought this fabric choice was ugly. I've seen it in real life and it's nothing special. It's just AP's shoddy replacement for an actual glitter print.
>>10772675Imo it stcks on the dress better long term
>>10772675It’s better than the shitty poly used for Fancy Hospital and Girly Sticker that snags and pills.
>>10772713All poly is shitty though. >>10772689I guess I've never had an issue with losing glitter on prints, so I rather just have the real thing. It reminds me a little too much of generic taobao.
>>10772607I saw it at Akon. The shimmer part makes it look like ice cubes. Very cute.
>>10772612Retro Cafe also sold out quickly in the Japanese release. I’m regretting not going for the JSK now. I hope this series gets the Little House treatment with new colorways too cause imo if any recent non print release deserves it it’s this one.
And yet again Paris gets the special treatment.Attendees will supposedly get to see AP's winter collection.
>>10772856anon I love you for the file name
>>10772530I'm just a saint
>>10772856Angelic Pretty Paris summer events have always featured new collections, even when Angelic Pretty Paris was just a corner at Boddywood, what are you on anon? it's been 10 years
I have this dress and the glitters keep going everywhere, I handwashed it and the water was filled with glitters, I had older pieces from AP with glitters on the print and I can throw them in the washing machine and it comes out nice but this one keeps on losing its glittersHow do you guys do with this type of dress?
>>10766684I'm still mad about this btw. My coveted shade of spring green and they fuck it up with neon trim. How did no one notice this? Why couldn't they just have used white?
