Bunny House Blouse, Antique Beast Bat Headdress, and Japonica Review!

I finally recieved everything I ordered so I thought I'd make a review c:
Starting with the Bunny House Blouse~
I purchased a Rosé pâtissier blouse in White directly from their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bunnystorevn.

Communication:4.5/5
I placed my order on April 24th, 2015 and I was invoiced not long after. Paypal sent me a shipping notification on May 11th, 2015 and I received it on the 18th!
In total I paid $60 USD for it shipped. I thought I chose EMS but I believe they sent it AIR. They gave me a tracking number but it didn't work.

Shipping:4/5
It arrived in a clear plastic bag inside of brown paper packaging. Personally I wish it had been more protected but it wasn't a big deal.



Quality: 5/5

Immediately after some inspection I was taken aback by the amount of HOT PINK MARKS. It took me a minute to realize that all the pink marks were from tailor's chalk.  I was concerned as to whether or not they would wash out without staining the fabric, luckily they came out just fine! I just thought it was worth a note.


Aside from that, the blouse is very lovely! The fabric they used is extremely soft and actually has a nice amount of stretch!

Sizing: 4.5/5
The sizing errors are my fault. I padded the measurements a bit because I didn't think the fabric would have stretch. I'll probably have it taken in eventually but it's not that big of a deal. I'd rather have a slightly bigger blouse than a smaller one!

Quickly thrown together worn pics:

Sweet~


Personally I think this blouse would look best with either a skirt or underbust style JSK (like Guilty)!

Overall: 4.5/5
I'm very pleased with it and would recommend Bunny House!

On to the Antique Beast Bat Headdress/ Japonica review!

You can order items overseas through Antique Beast's website (http://a-beast.ocnk.net/) but I was having some trouble placing my order. I decided that I'd rather be safe than sorry and just used Japonica, haha.
Here's a link to Japonica's website: http://www.japonicamarket.com/

Communication: 4/5
I placed my order for two of these (one for me, another for my friend) on April 28th, 2015 and was invoiced shortly after. The total I paid for both of them shipped to Japonica's offices was $71.61.
I feel like there's a lot that's lost in translation when you ask them questions, which is understandable I guess. For example, I sent them an e-mail a couple of days after I placed my order asking when they should get them in and all I got in response was that they hadn't arrived yet, haha.
I waited for them to notify me of their arrival and by May 15th I still hadn't heard anything, so I sent an e-mail asking for an update. They messaged me back later that day saying that they had them and asked if I wanted the shipping invoice. I thought that was odd but my friend informed me that it's common practice for shopping services to do that in case you'd like to order more things and group them together. I replied to them that I indeed wanted the invoice and they sent it quickly. EMS shipping for both from Japonica's offices to the US was $19.01. They were shipped out on the 16th and I received them on the 22nd!

Shipping: 5/5
They were wrapped in individual clear plastic bags inside of tissue paper, padded with packing paper, and inside of a cardboard box. No complaints!




Quality: 5/5
I'm so impressed with mine! It is the perfect size, the lace is gorgeous and feels high quality, and the neck ribbons have roses woven into them! My friend's is unopened but since they're exactly the same, I can't imagine there are any issues with it.




Isn't the logo super pretty?

I don't have any worn pictures yet but I did try it on and it sits so nicely on my head!

Headdress Overall:5/5
I love it so much, I've wanted one for a long time and I'm thrilled to finally be a proud owner! I would highly recommend Antique Beast!

Japonica Overall:4/5
Their communication could use some improvements but their fees are very reasonable and their replies are fast. If you're looking for a cheap SS, I'd highly recommend them!

I hope this review was helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to ask away!
