Review: Hypnotic Sweet Treats

My review for Hypnotic Sweet Treats is NEGATIVE.

I pm'ed through Facebook because I had won a gift card but still had to pay for shipping. She invoiced me through Paypal and I paid. (October 25th)

I messaged her about the status of my item and she said she'll mail it out soon. (November 24th)

I opened a dispute on Paypal before the deadline with a message included that I was just opening a dispute as a safety measure and would close it as soon as I received the items. (December 7th)

She didn't respond through Paypal so I raised it to a claim. (December 23rd)

Case was resolved by Paypal and I received a refund. (January 3rd)

I'm not sure if it was because I didn't use her Etsy or Storenvy and that she was relocating from what I read on her Facebook. Maybe it was all bad timing. It seems that people do receive items from her. But it was a waste of time and although I wouldn't have lost much money in this transaction I was disappointed in not receiving the items at all.

Angelic Pretty USA 3rd Anniversary Tea Party!

I attended Angelic Pretty USA's 3rd Anniversary Tea Party in San Francisco last weekend. I got to see the designers Maki and Asuka and the President of Angelic Pretty Honda-san again!

There was an in-store event at Angelic Pretty SF the day before. I wasn't able to snag any lucky packs but I enjoyed myself anyway!
Took a pic with Asuka-san!

Now on to the Tea Party!

It was a lot longer than the tea party at Anime Revolution and so many lolitas! I recognized a few from Tumblr and daily_lolita. I knew SF lolitas step up their game in crafting and coords so I got to see many beautiful people!

Hope to go again next year~!

Angelic Pretty at Anime Revolution 2013

I had the opportunity to model for Angelic Pretty at Anime Revolution in Canada and also attend the Angelic Pretty tea party! I got to meet a lot of Vancouver lolitas who were all so lovely and nice!

Here's some backstage photos

Outfit photo (I got to wear Fancy Paper Dolls before it was released)

Here's a pic with Maki and Asuka, the designers of Angelic Pretty! So cute and sweet in person.

Here's a really attractive pic of me... haha

All the models were so friendly and fun. A lot of the girls were mutual friends and knew each other. I had a good time talking with everyone and wasn't very nervous because we were all having a good time.

Here's a group pic on the stage (so lucky I got to be in the front middle). There were e-famous lolitas that I recognized from Tumblr/Daily_Lolita such as Tamie, Charon, Sharon (they're all good friends too!)

I haven't found many pics of my model walk sadly enough but here you go!
