I never knew Bodyline made replicas of brand lolita dresses until I happened to stumble on someone’s blog. I saw AP’s Heart Pocket JSK in Kera before and was like “oh, Bodyline has something similar,” but it never occurred to me that they were actually copying AP’s designs.
And, they have done it again. This time, it’s AP’s Fruits Parlor OP. Some girls have been raving that the replica looks ugly compared to the real deal, so I have been madly searching for a photo of the real dress to see what’s the difference.
This is Bodyline’s replica…
I found a photo of the real Fruits Parlor OP, but it’s someone’s photo so I didn’t want to steal it. Anyway, the difference is that the real deal has a little apron in the front and the bodice is not laced up with ribbon like the replica. The real headbow has AP’s heart logo on it, the replica has a crown logo. Seriously speaking, I don’t find anything wrong with the replica; it’s not hideous or anything to me. I guess “real” lolitas look down on fakes. I do agree that owning lolita brand dresses makes one feel like a true lolita, but those dresses are just to expensive for some people to own. So, they have to turn to replicas.
The replica comes in black, red, light pink, and dark pink. I certainly wouldn’t mind buying one now if I were in Japan. I only hope they do a better job on the headbow coz one of the Bodyline JSK’s headbow I own, gives me a headache when I put it on. The hairband part is not properly shaped, sits weirdly on my head, is freakin’ tight, and presses on the sides of my head until I feel pain. I have good mind to rip out the bow and stick it on a normal black hairband. I’m wearing it in the photo below. That’s Erica and we were part of J-Net’s Fashion Show which explains her in yukata and me in the lolita outfit.
Waiting for AP’s lucky pack. Innocent World has released theirs, but it’s HORRIBLY expensive and I don’t really fancy anything from there. BTSSB has just released a shoe lucky pack, but I’m not too interested. I didn’t blog about getting the Meta’s lucky pack. The lucky pack was going at 10000 yen. In it was supposed to be stuff worth 30000 yen. This was what I got.
I wasn’t too sure I liked the outfit, but after some consideration, I think I might keep it. Some commented that at least Meta’s lucky pack this year was better than before. Apparently, sometimes they give stuff that don’t match. I was only too happy about the cherry emblem headdress coz I was considering on getting it.
Meta’s winter sale is starting soon, but I might not be getting anything.
