Wish Me Mell x Angelic Pretty Set releases? 
8th-Dec-2013 05:39 pm
Hello! I was wondering if anyone on here knows something about the release of the Wish Me Mell Tea Party sets!

Here's a picture of the series.

So far I've only seen some jewelry and the tights in the Lolitadesu shop, and a hoodie being sold at the EGL Sales community. I've tried to do some research but I can find barely anything about it!

I'm wondering if this whole series is just a Japan-only release or sold out really quickly! If anyone has any information on the set, I'd like to hear about it.

Thanks in advance!

The dresses were made to order during a reservation period for Japan only~

Ah, that's sad, I really like them :c well, maybe I'll have a chance to get them secondhand.

As daimeiwaku said, it's a reserve-only, Japan-only series and was available to preorder between September 24 and October 14. It was made to order and doesn't come out until mid January (according to my SS, anyways!), so you probably won't see any second-hand until then.

Typically series involving licensed characters like this (or like the anime collabs they do on occasion) are Japanese-only releases. Licensing laws and fees vary from country to country, and it is not uncommon for licenses to be held by different companies in different countries. As a result, brands typically only license items like this for release in Japan and basically never release them in other countries. A small handful of jewelry items from this collab made their way into the AP US store but that was definitely an exception to the rule.

Oh, I understand then, haha. That's pretty logical I guess. I hope I might be able to get one secondhand but we'll see ^^ I'll keep in mind that licensed releases often work like that.

Yeah, you should be able to find one secondhand, there's always someone who likes the series and then finds it doesn't fit/suit them. I found out about it like a day too late and only lucked into a set because my SS accidentally reserved two XD

If you want to find it secondhand, just keep in mind that the original price of the dress/bonnet set was ~$425. I can't imagine anyone internationally being willing to sell it for less than $500 since it'd be around that cost after fees, and since the character is pretty popular in Japan I would expect to see similar prices for that set. Salopettes are usually waaaaay less popular but I imagine this one would be in the $400 range secondhand.

Yeah, I understand it will be expensive. The characters are popular and it was expensive newly bought too. Oh well.

We'll see, I might buy this set or I might go for Wonder Queen or La Princesse Sucre, haha.

honestly i would go for wonder queen, man, that collar is so cute! I would definitely pick it up if I hadn't thrown down for this and Holy Lantern- my lolita budget is basically depleted for the next month or two XD

And hey, if my black set winds up not working out, I'll let you know hahaha~!

Haha, I don't have the money for Wonder Queen now either. I recently bought a lucky pack from AP (which should arrive soon) and I am left with about €50, haha. I might rather go for La Princesse Sucre however, maybe someone will sell it. I really like the print.

The comments above already covered the clothing information, but the accessories are still in stock in most stores (at least in the Kanto area) so if you were to want some of the jewelry and such it shouldn't be hard to obtain from a shopping service.
9th-Dec-2013 02:27 pm (UTC) theres some jewelry and a hoodie from this set on mbok right now, if you're looking for it.

I indeed found that on Mbok and some other sites, but I was more interested in the dress and bonnet. But thanks for linking me!

Now im curious...does anyone know if any shopping services made reservations or no?

i reserved my dress from tokyo priates early sept. it came out to about 490.00 estimated or maybe a bit less but tokyo pirates will contact me as soon as she has the dress in hand and ships it out in january when i pay the shipping. Hope you get a second hand oppurtunity, im not sure how popular it is but i know i got mines before alot of people knew about it. But again i love bunnies and sanrio bunnies at that :)

I wish I knew it was up for reservation, I would have bought the salopette then instead of my Decoration Dream jsk :/
26th-Dec-2013 04:14 am (UTC)
aww I hope you get a chance to buy it .
