Question about AaTP 
25th-Jan-2013 05:37 pm
I have never been really interested in BtSSB or Alice and the Pirates dresses, but when I was randomly browsing the Internet I came upon
Elizabeth Bride of the Death JSK.

I was excited to find out that it is still available for reservation. Except for, my JSK I wanted are already sold out.

Is there actually any chance for the jsk to be back in stock? Or in physical stores? Or will my next chance to grab it be when it (hopefully) gets re-released?

This dress sold out within minutes in reserve. Your best chance is:

1) Post a WTB on the comm_sales
2) Stalk the auctions and secondhand sites

My goodness.
Do you think the price will rise up to $1000?
25th-Jan-2013 04:57 pm (UTC)
I don't think there's a chance in hell it will go up to $1000, but if someone is willing to pay that much i'd certainly sell mine :P

Well, I have seen that hype on some prints, like IW Lotta one (which I don't really understand).
I'm not sure if I will want to pay more than $400 actually. I totally missed this print and I wish I could have ordered it.

I'm not sure how re-releases work with AatP.
25th-Jan-2013 05:11 pm (UTC)
AatP doesn't do re-releases sadly except in very special cases (like the memorial series baby did, perhaps aatp one might get one on their 10 year anniversary but it will be old prints-- or like vampire requiem but that was about a year and a half apart from the original release date)

I was joking about the selling for $1000 (though i would ha!). Price is really driven by what the demand is. There's always someone willing to pay a premium to get something they want, but I find that those items that reach a grand are few and far between (Iron Gate, Puppet Circus, and Lotta has reached 800-900). But these items are also not re released and never will be I'm sure.

Also, most people have only just begun receiving their dresses (mine arrived on Wednesday) so I think as more people receive them, some people might realize that they don't like it as much in person or it doesn't fit well so they will start popping up for sale on the comm sales and on auction.

Thank you very much for your help!

Do you happen to know what is the real max either of these jsks that can fit in bust? ^^"
25th-Jan-2013 07:13 pm (UTC)
I don't know off the top of my head but I can measure mine when I get home from work later today! I'm an 88cm bust and have plenty of room, but i haven't stretched the shirring out to see what the capacity is like. (I have the JSK II/long version btw)
25th-Jan-2013 09:11 pm (UTC)
I'll be delighted if you could measure ^o^ I'm 94-96 bust (I'm quite busty and tall, 177cm) so I was thinking about the long version too!
26th-Jan-2013 02:50 am (UTC)
Fully stretched out it will go to 101cm but that is pulling REALLY tightly. At 96cm you should be ok, though it could vary from dress to dress.

Totally off-topic...but this is based off the musical isn't it? Because...goddammit now I want it. XD
25th-Jan-2013 09:28 pm (UTC)
I'm not certainly sure, although I did read about it somewhere on the Internet. But I think that the dress itself, was indeed inspired by the musical. :)
I want it too, but the long version... =sigh=
26th-Jan-2013 08:24 am (UTC)
Did a bit of Internet reading too....apparently, it is. I really need it since I adore that musical. The Takarazuka productions of it have absolutely stunning costumes. The original German production is really good too though. Totally worth looking up.

Thank you very much ^^ I'm looking for the black or red version in this jsk type :)

It maybe worth dropping tokyo rebel an email to see if they are getting it in stock as they have not posted any of this series yet.
26th-Jan-2013 02:47 am (UTC)
it isnt on reserve anymore. i tried to get the black, but like someone else already stated, the black JSK II sold out within minutes, so I ordered the navy, which i was in love with just as much. i doubt this dress will be re-released so soon, but yea, check the comm_sales and post a WTB to see if anyone would be willing to sell it.
