Soft & Sweet Candy Rain Dresses for Summer

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

This is my first Candy Rain post since returning to regular posting~
It makes me so glad to see this beautiful brand flourishing
and continuing to produce and endless supply of soft princess dresses.

Candy Rain – Pink Short-Sleeve Chiffon Dress

The beautiful lace collar around the top of this dress
is my favorite charm point~!

Candy Rain – Peach Embroidered Short-Sleeve Dress

The soft, creamy orange color of this dress is so perfectly Summery!

Candy Rain – Long-Sleeve Chiffon Dress

I’m completely in love with this dress’ wide bell sleeves!
Nothing says “princess” more than that style of sleeve~

Candy Rain – Print Cutout Shoulder Short-Sleeve Dress

The off-the-shoulder flouncing sleeves are an incredible beautiful charm point!

Candy Rain – Mock Two-piece Cutout Shoulder Short-Sleeve Dress

I’m absolutely in love with the unique shape of this dress!
Not only is the top shaped so incredibly cute with braided ribbons
on either side, but is also has a sweet pastel printed design
in the center!

A Guide to All Those Kawaii Brands You See on Ebay, Storenvy, and Aliexpress

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

When you’re browsing for cute clothes in the style of Lolita, gyaru, mori girl, fairy-kei, and others, you may find in your searches through Ebay, Storenvy, Aliexpress and others that you begin to recognize certain pieces listed!  Maybe you’ll recognize the model wearing the fashions, or something about the photography will look familiar to similar listings you’ve found.  You have the vague idea that they’re probably TaoBao brands, but what are their names, and where do these listings originate from?

The thing about these marketplaces is that they very rarely actually list these items by name!  Knowing the originator of these pieces can help you shop around for them and get them at a fair price.  Plus, it’s just good to know where the things you’re buying come from.

Here is my quick guide to my favorite brands that I’ve encountered across these marketplaces!  It’s certainly not a comprehensive list, but maybe it can help you find some direction with your own browsing. :3

candyrainsample

Candy Rain

This is my favorite of all of the TaoBao brands available –
everything is lacy and ruffly, with light floral patterns and soft pastels!
Candy Rain models are usually posed around rich-looking rooms
set with flowers, tea or cakes, or outdoors in a garden setting.

Sellers:
Candy Rain’s YesStyle Brand Page
LoliLoli Shop for Lolita Princess 
– an Aliexpress seller
BOBON21 – another Aliexpress seller that stocks Candy Rain
Candy Rain’s TaoBao Page

 gogogirlsample

GOGO Girl

I hope I have the name of this brand correctly;
I only have their YesStyle page to go from.
It doesn’t refer to this brand by name on its TaoBao shop as far as I see. nn;

GOGO Girl is a very widespread brand on marketplaces
that features this model who is doll-like in cuteness!
She is posed against a wall in a cutesy interior room.
Again is the recurring theme of pastel colors and soft fabrics,
like sheer chiffon overlays.

Sellers:
GOGO Girl’s YesStyle Brand Page
PRO-G DEAL
 – Aliexpress seller that features GOGO Girl heavily
MONGPING finery – another Aliexpress seller
GOGO Girl’s TaoBao Page
Another TaoBao Page for this seller because who knows??

bobon21sample

BoBon21

That’s BO-bon, not BON-bon, like a certain bunny-related URL you might know of.
This brand surfaced as a cheaper alternative to Liz Lisa.
Many of their pieces are similar to Liz Lisa stylistically.
They are not listed on YesStyle.
Their usual model has the light strawberry-blonde hair pictured above.
She is usually posed against a blank wall, but as with all of these guidelines,
there are variations sometimes.

Sellers:
LoliLoli Shop for Lolita Princess – again!  Such a reliable seller for cute clothes.
BOBON21 – A seller that shares the name, but may not be officially connected.
BoBon21’s TaoBao Page

pinkdollsample

Pink Doll

Pink Doll is also Dabuwawa, and it features mature and elegant clothing!
Their models look older and more mature than the previous featured
kawaii brands, to match the look of their clothing line.
There are also often non-Asian models featured sometimes,
such as the blonde woman in the center above.
They are usually posed in interior spaces against curtains or similar.

Sellers:
Dabuwawa’s YesStyle Brand Page
One, Two, and Three different Aliexpress sellers for Pink Doll
Pink Doll’s TaoBao Page

Favorite Aliexpress Stores for Lolita, Gyaru, Fairy-Kei, Larme-Kei and Mori Girl!

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Oh my GOSH!!  It has been AGES AND AGES since I posted!  And I am so, so happy to be back!

I can’t say that I actually went anywhere. n_n;  Just got a little burned out updating here all the time.  I’ve been super active on Tumblr instead though!  And drawing, of course!  Always drawing~

Okay, anywhoozles, let’s roll right back into things~  Lately I have been OBSESSED with Aliexpress.  It’s like Ebay, except exclusive to Asian sellers, most of which are setting up shop with their same merchandise from Taobao.  And Taobao has SOME OF THE CUTEST, MOST PRINCESS-FUL CLOTHES EVER!  The same products being on Aliexpress make it easier to get your hands on those Taobao brands (which you normally would need a shopping service for), and Aliexpress has the advantage of being able to cancel your order and get a full refund at any time if you feel the slightest hesitation about your order, which is the huge downfall of Ebay imo (where you have to open up Paypal disputes and possibly not even get your money back if your claim isn’t approved).

ANYWAY.  Cutest stores I’ve found on Aliexpress for girly princess clothes, GO!

Loliloli Shop for Lolita Princess

Loliloli Shop for Lolita Princess

This is THE JACKPOT!!  Perfectly princessy Lolita clothing –
dresses, shoes, gorgeous stockings –
my screenshot above cannot fully encompass how well-stocked this store is.
My top recommendation!

bobon21store

BOBON21

While this seller has the same name as a favorite TaoBao brand,
I’m not sure that they are officially affiliated.
However, they are among the only sellers of Candy Rain
and BoBon21, so they are another store worth browsing!!

J-fashion Harajuku

J-fashion Harajuku

Another great winner!  This store doesn’t have strictly Lolita things,
but it has a wide variety of kawaii styles, and many pastel and anime/geek-themed products,
especially Sailor Moon items!

PRO-G DEAL

PRO-G DEAL

Looooook at how cuuuuute!!  Pro-G Deal has manymanymany items
from the Taobao brand Bobon21,
which is for sure one of the cutest pastel brands out there!
And what’s more, Pro-G Deal recently expanded to include many
ACTUAL Lolita items, such as JSK’s and skirts!!

Liz Lisa Sweet Girls

Liz Lisa Sweet Girls and Store No.734703 (lol)

These two are being lumped together because they have very similar selections!
They are both Liz Lisa sellers!  Figured I’d link to both since even though there’s bound to be
overlapping between products, there will surely be some items listed in one that aren’t in the other,
and it’s always a good idea to shop around~

MONGPING finery

MONGPING finery

This store carries gorgeous Mori girl items!!
And though they’re not pictured in the image,
they also stock Bobon21 items and other kawaii pastel styles as well!!

VV Elegant Fashion Co. Ltd.

DABUWAWA Wholesale & Retail, DABUWAWA & Pink Doll Trade Co.,
Shanghai DABUWAWA International Trading Co.

Three different suppliers for the lovely Taobao brand Pink Doll,
which provides some of the most elegant & mature clothing I have ever seen!

Artka_Aliexpress_Store_for_Earthy_Witches

Artka

Another of the elegant & mature selections,
Artka’s clothing makes me think of something that stylish Earthy witches would wear.
The color palette is darker than the usual Larme-style Mori girl, but there is
something forest-like and enchanting about them anyway!

Soul Vision

Soul Vision

My last featured store for the day isn’t for clothes – it’s home decor!
Living and sleeping in a pretty space is essential for all princesses!
I loooooove the bedding that they have here,
and all of the furniture and homewares are so elegant as well~

Handsome Ikemen Figures For Your Collection of Husbandos

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

I don’t know about the rest of y’all but anime boys are like… my life…
If any of you guys are in the habit of collecting anime figures,
perhaps these recent listings can expand your collection!

King of Prism by PrettyRhythm Hiro Hayami
-Star’s Smile- 1/8 Scale Figure

Omg this boy is so cuuuuute!!
I think that there is a song that he sang called “Over the Rainbow,”
and this is the outfit that he wore for it.

King of Prism by PrettyRhythm Kaduki Nishina
Battle Suit Ver. 1/8 Scale Figure

You know, more outfits could use hip windows.

If I remember from this anime, he wore this while breakdance-battling
another dude while on roller skates.
…Did that happen, or was it a fever dream?

Nendoroid Haikyu!! Second Season Kei Tsukishima

Oh my gosh, this is probably my fave Haikyuu character. ;A;
This is a rerun of a previous release, so you have another chance to get him
if you missed it the first time.  And please… please grab Yamaguchi, too,
it’s just cruel to keep them apart!

IDOLiSH 7 DXF Figure Vol. 3: Mitsuki Izumi

Look at this adorable bunny-hooded boy!
This actually comes in two color variations, click through to see them both.
The IDOLiSH 7 anime is announced and upcoming. :3

G.E.M. Series Yuri!!! on Ice Victor Nikiforov w/ Makkachin

I think the original announcement of this figure shocked everyone,
with that sculpted little butt of his. 😆
This listing includes a tiny, adorable Makkachin, so you must pick it up!!

List of Surface Series Games in Order (+ Downloads!)

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Today’s list of games is different than my others, which were all beautiful fantasy games.  The Surface series of games are dark and dramatic, touching on more frightening and intense themes than many others I have featured.

If spooky games of the type that are sort of haunting and unsettling are your jam, definitely check out some of these games!

Each and everyone of them is FREE to download and start playing!!

Surface: The Noise She Couldn’t Make

On a lonely stretch of highway, a young girl is found unconscious,
a bloody knife lying next to her. Was she a victim,
or did she attack someone? Her doctors are baffled when she fails
to respond to treatment. Desperate, they call you in to help.
As a psychic, you’re used to working with clients who can talk to you.
But this girl can’t. Enter her mind and work to discover…
the noise she couldn’t make…

Surface: The Soaring City

Search for your brother, Jeremy, in a beautiful world where the sky is
as wide as your imagination! Jeremy was a great inventor who discovered
a magnificent land soaring in the sky. He created wings for the people,
making them free. The new citizens were happy…until one day Jeremy
was kidnapped and blamed for conducting inhumane experiments.
It’s up to you to save your brother from imprisonment
and redeem his good name.

Surface: Mystery of Another World

After your son, Bobby, mysteriously disappears, it’s up to you to find him
in Surface: The Mystery of Another World! A peaceful train ride
to the coast goes way off course and now strange occurrences are happening
all around you! It seems that there is another world just past your reflection…

Surface: Reel Life

Your sister and her daughter, Jane, were enjoying a screening of an old movie,
when one of the actors literally stepped off the screen! Now Jane is missing,
and the building is crawling with strange plants and animals from the movie.
You solve all the puzzles in your way and rush to the theater to find a way
into the world of the film to save your niece. But once you do…
you realize that the mystery – and the danger – is much deeper than you could
have imagined. Can you escape before your adventure becomes a tragedy?

Surface: The Pantheon

It should have been a tremendous achievement, but the tunnel through
the Ridge of Leviathan became the site of a great disaster.
What really happened that day? You were supposed to have been on the train
with your husband and daughter, but you missed it.
And then they disappeared from your life forever.
It’s one year later, and a strange man – a scientist who thinks this is
just like the Bermuda Triangle and other such vanishings –
invites you to take part in his greatest experiment:
To recreate the conditions of that fateful day in Surface: The Pantheon!

Surface: Game of Gods

When your friends, Jim, Kevin, and Maggie, invite you to participate
in a paid research study, you jump at the chance. But things take a bizarre turn
when you arrive to discover that Jim and Kevin are missing,
and Maggie has just been abducted by a horrific figure! A strange game
is spread out on the table, and every move could mean certain death.
But you have no choice – you’ll have to play to save your friends’ lives…
and your own. Can you make it to the end of the Game?
Roll the dice and find out…

Surface: Alone in the Mist

All the adults have vanished. Is it a child’s dream, or nightmare?
You wake on the morning of your birthday to find that things aren’t at all
the way you pictured for your sweet 16. Can you find out what’s happened overnight
to turn your world upside down?
Unlock the Secret Room, where you’ll find more hidden-object and mini-game play.
But be careful what you wish for…

Surface: Return to Another World

After receiving a worrying phone call from your mom,
you return to your hometown of Lightfalls to investigate.
But things aren’t quite as you remembered them – a strange device
has risen from the nearby lake, and it’s causing the people of Lightfalls to disappear!
A boy from your childhood seems to be behind it all, but can you stop his evil scheme
before it’s too late? Journey to the magical world
beneath the lake and save your family!!

Surface: Lost Tales

You’ve been seeing things that can’t possibly be real.
What starts as a simple doctor’s visit turns into the chase of a lifetime!
The Huntsman is after you and Fairyland’s in danger.
With only fragments of your memory, can you save the kingdom
before it’s too late?

Surface: Virtual Detective

The Virtual Detective Agency is now hiring!
Secure your ranking as a top detective in the world’s premiere
virtual reality space, sponsored by the Capsule Nexus 2000 –
the most realistic full-dive virtual reality device.
We’re looking for a few good sleuths to investigate the cause behind the
