it wasn't ever really super helpful information though - it was always vague and ~12 hours before AP officially announced it anyways. Personally didn't see a point in knowing if a blouse was maybe or maybe not coming, without knowing exactly what kinds of items or what colors it's semi-useless and unnecessary "insider info" because you can just wait half a day and know exactly what's coming.

I don't even mind Angelic Prophet, but if she is the only one working on the current AP USA store site, she is doing a subpar job in both visual design and functionality. The only good thing about the site was it not crashing during the last print release for the first time in a while.

>> No.10607721

At the same time though how hard is it to code a site that lists all the colors on one page instead of a different page for every colorway of every item? That is unrelated to certain technical issues but would make the site objectively better. Every other AP store does it, just about any online clothing store does it, and it isn't that hard to have a dropdown, radio, or separate add to cart button for each color consolidated to one page the way Japan and Paris do.

>AP made less stock of the Moco Moco Bunnys stuff
AP had about the same number of OTKs as usual, but most of them were reserved early by the tea party participants who were really excited about Moco Moco Bunnys. Iirc, the only restriction was that you couldn't get two of the same item in the same colour. A lot of people who only ordered one or two main pieces wanted all the sock colours for versatility. Even those who weren't after the main pieces bought socks to match other prints. By the time of the general release most of the stock had already been claimed. Even scalpers couldn't get much after that.

>> No.10607784

I'm very happy I managed to get it in white from a restock. I only wish the toys had pink or at least purple shadows on the white version. There's too little pink and it makes the print look sorta skewed towards blue tones. It became especially prominent when I hanged it next to my Fancy Candy JSK.

Anon it says right on the screen grab that you'd be a full time employee after 6 months and the first 3 months are the evaluation period. Considering they want you to work 5 days a week I don't think this is a freelance gig.

Managing an e-commerce website even for a small company like AP is unlikely to be a freelance job in Japan. It's not like they have a whole team for the website and just need someone to crop a couple of photos for a basic html page once a week.

>> No.10607807

Why are you comparing AP Japan to AP USA? They obviously wouldn't have the same dev. AP USA already has to pay a higher salary to get any dev in the US, there's a reason their website is shit. You'd only get a high schooler in the US with a salary like Japan's.

Holy crap, is this actually what happened? Because that would make a lot of sense.

I had assumed AP made more stock of Moco Moco Bunnys after the reservations from the tea party, but if they just used that stock up and didn't replenish it for the main release, then that's really shortsighted and no wonder I can't find any pairs of OTKs.

I believe AP didn’t have enough time to place an order for extra Moco Moco OTKs. The special tea party reservation lasted a week, which means it ended on 2020/12/20, about a month before the main release. It was probably impossible to have a replenishment produced and delivered in time. And after that the MMB hype subsided so they probably didn’t want to risk ordering another batch.

Meta has begun catering to fatties with their plus size but I feel like fatties still gravitate towards AP for some reason. Just like BTSSB has some full shirring skirts and dresses that fit them (they weren't really designed for fatties like the meta ones tho) but AP always seems to be the target of their demands for size inclusivity.

AP makes/made cute things but so many equally good brands exist, it isn't just entitled plus sized people who overhype or focus only on AP to a fault. BABY is best brand to me since I love that they still have many cotton print releases, plus I like old school so BABY and Meta are my top 2 with AP bringing up the rear with a few specific prints I like and some of my favorite accessories.

I don't know if it's gonna end up being a shop or event exclusive. It's hard to predict based on the info I have. Sendai shop reopening in scheduled for the end of May and they will probably have a Renewal Fair. And Laforet is likely going to have something to make up for the GW event that never happened. Maybe it's reserved for one of these events.
For some reason white, pink and black colourways of LBS were ready earlier than yellow. They planned to start selling the first three colourways as early as April 24 (Laforet Golden Week event). But not yellow, the most anticipated colour that was on the look book cover. And we're only getting it now, on May 8.
So maybe (warning: speculation on my part) the fifth colour is also delayed by the factory or someone else in their supply chain.
It's not a new LBS cut if this is what you're implying by "special set".
In this case I would recommend to wait. I don't know how easy to get it will be in case it ends up being a store or event exclusive. So keep this in mind when deciding whether to buy this week or not. Do you have a preferred cut?

Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm still kind of skeptical just because I got burned.

The fur on the newer plush is still soft, but soft for me doesn't equal good, necessarily. Some of the worst polyester fur is still "soft." It's so soft, it's limp.

The shininess was apparent in stock photos and photos I've seen online from coords. It looks like the same fur used on the three plushes I was disappointed by (if you have any of the ones I mentioned in my earlier post, I'm interested to know if it's in fact the same fur).

I only managed to get the Romantic Lacy blouse after trying for two dresses and failing. It looks questionablely faded, but was ranked A? Not sure how it'll be in real life.

Missing the Twirling Ribbon OP killed me. I was paying for it and the page was loading for confirmation, but it sold out. I went back and tried for Candy Fairy, got payment to load again, and it sold out. So if I had gone for Candy Fairy first, I would have gotten it. It stings. But I never actually have hope of getting the best AP items for the night. I luck out with a consolation item every now and then.

I want the sweet boom to die so CC can go back to being manageable. My brain is so certain that secondhand will always be hellish now though.

It might just be their lighting with the blouse.

Yeah all the JSKs went so fast. I tried for Candy Fairy even though there will be an mto and another one I can't remember the name of and because the site wouldn't let me through multiple times I lost them just like you!

I know how you feel when you're redirected to your cart and see the red writing

At least missing out on Candy Fairy isn't life or death now. The MTO has different lace/tulle, but I'm sort of hoping maybe people sell the old Candy Fairy once the MTO is fulfilled. They probably won't, but
I can dream.

It might happen a bit like honey cake!

I wish it came in red, and maybe blue.
