I Have A Tweeter, And Why I've Been Quiet

No, not a twitter, a tweeter. It sounds so much more fun :)

You can follow me here: http://twitter.com/#!/Josiephone
For fun and... stuff.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while even though there's been stuff to blog about, I have summer exams until Thursday, which I'm supposed to be studying for right now...

So I might go do that now, might.

MMM's Silent Moon

It's just been announced that Moi-Meme-Moitié are releasing a new series called Silent Moon. 

The following pictures of the series have been released:

The print White on Black

And of course, Mana-sama himself wearing the Black on White one.

But that's not all, folks! There are so many colourways for this release that... well... there's a lot. A BIG LOAD.

White x Black
White x Blue
White x Silver
White x Gold
Black x White
Black x Blue
Black x Silver
Black x Green
Black x Gold

I reckon Mana's tasted the rainbow lately, because I've never known a Moitié release, hell, ANY release to have so many different colours.


There'll be an OP, a long OP and a JSK.
And oh man, I want a Black x Green OP SO BAD.

From what I can see and find, there's nothing out yet about the release date, but I'm sure there'll be something about it soon. I have a feeling that this will be a very popular series!

Claudia, The Fairy Tale Princess

On Baby's blog, yet ANOTHER new release has been announced. This will be called "Claudia, The Fairy Tale Princess", and, as with most release announcements, there are no photos just yet.

Is it just me, or are Alice And The Pirates and Baby putting a LOT of items for reservation lately? Maybe too many things?

Night Fairy Fantasia has only just gone on reservation, and a new print already? AATP and Baby aren't the only ones doing this, of course, Angelic Pretty are guilty too. Honey Cake, Aqua Princess, Sheep Garden... maybe I'm just being all early morning-y, but it just seems like too much in such a short space of time.

I think brands need to hold back some releases, becase they're all running into each other, but that's just me, and my complaint probably stems from the lack of time to save up for a series before it's released, not that I manage to do that anyway.

I'll keep a sharp eye out for the first pictures of "Claudia, The Fairy Tale Princess" and update about it as soon as possible!

Angelic Pretty, WHY DO YOU MOCK ME?

Hellloooooo night sky! I think this is an absolutely beautiful print. I think it's called Shooting Star... something or other... regardless, I love it.

But, there is one problem.

From what I've found, it's high-waisted only. Do you know how awkward I am in dresses with waists THAT high? Go find a penguin and cross it with a camel, that's me.
I would LOVE the dark blue and black ones in a normal waisted JSK style. I would eat trees for them. Yes, trees. Bark, leaves and all. Oh please AP, think of all the penguin camels!

EDIT: Just heard that this is unconfirmed, and was just posted on a tumblr or something. But still, it's pretty as hell. And what's this? Rumours of a Milky Planet Re-Release? EMPLOY ME! QUICK!

Remember That Really Pretty Bodyline Print?

I'm sure everyone remembers the bag that Bodyline released a while ago with that cute sweet-classic print. If not, here's a refresher:
And some detail:
And we all said 'Bodyline has learned! Good Mr. Yan, you're doing it right! Here's a cake, now let's forget about the boobie glasses and have some tea.'
Honestly though, this is one of the prettier prints that Bodyline's produced (not counting replicas :P), and the blue is just beautiful1
So, judging from past happenings, we expected the skirt/jsk to be released soon, and we waited.
And waited.
And, what do you think pops up on the japanese site?

....*takes back cake*
I mean, fair enough, some people like it, and when it's done right it's pretty fine, but why not just make a nice, straightforward jsk? Or a skirt? Why must you make our lives difficult? It's not even a particularly wa-style print. Or if you must make wa, make jsks too?
Come on Bodyline, so close to winning, stop doing this to yourself!

For This, I'll Dive In The Antarctic.

Right, I'm sure you're all well-acquainted with AP's new Aqua Princess print which has been released (if not, DO YOU LIVE IN A CAVE?), but oh man. This print is so pretty I just can't shut up about it.

I love, love, LOVE the blue one:
I suppose, being blue, it just brings out the whole 'Aqua' aspect of it :P
But wait, there's more!
The print sparkles! Look at that! Shine a light and we can have a mermaid disco! :D

Just when I thought this print couldn't get any better...
...I saw the black one.
LOOK AT YOU, DRESS! YOU WIN SO MUCH YOU COULD EXPLODE! EVACUATE THE AP STORES AND LET ME IN! I'm qualified at diffusing dress bombs by... taking them home to my secret lab *cough* wardrobe *cough*
But seriously, I love the colour purple, that being THIS colour, not lavender (but that's great too), and it makes me happy to see it more often in dresses.
Awh, you know, if I hadn't been all SPENDY SPEND SPEND in the last few weeks I could be getting this, but I completely forgot about it.

(However, I assure you (and myself!) that it was money well spent, and I'll be documenting that soon!)

Is anyone getting Aqua Princess? OP, JSK or skirt? If so, I am dead jealous.
DEAD jealous. *stretched smile*
