    They did a good job creating this dress in real life, given it was from manga style drawings for a character designed by a person who is not a fashion designer. It's not the same as creating clothing for a fashion line. Having said that, I don't know if it's something most people who wear MmM will flock to since it isn't designed by Mana and is a different style from previous dresses. It feels like it is more for the cosplay consumers. I give them credit for taking on this challenge and creating this dress. I will say I bet the headdress sells out since people will want it to use with other MmM outfits.

    Going to add that price point is something that most lolita wearers consider. This dress is around twice as much as previous MmM dresses. Which will keep a lot of lolitas from buying it. I hope that future new pieces are not in this range. I don't know what the arrangements are for this one but I'd guess that part of the sales will go to Peach Pit and whoever handles Vocaloid. Which might account for part of the higher price. Just to add that it's possible that the reason MmM went ahead with this project (besides it being for Kamijo) is the advertisement value of it. However most who want to buy lolita fashion already know about MmM so not sure if cross over goods like this will influence future sales.

    I think it looks nice, for being lolita. I'm not a fan of prints so I think this looks better than many of the original Moite dresses :P But that's not saying much since I'm not into lolita :P

    For that price maybe they'll use actual fabric.

    I don't know if you are just referring to the more recent releases but I've owned four Moitie dresses and a few other pieces and they were all nice quality fabric. Items I've seen in the store also were nice. I've not had a chance to look at the screen print dresses so I can't say what those are like. I really love the lace and fabric in the older dresses.

    New photos with the front and back of the dress and also the headdress. Thing to remember, this is just one dress, it does not mean that Moitie is totally changing. And that it's based on what Peach Pit drew, who is not a designer for the company. I still think they did a really nice job putting it together, but then I have friends who have competed in cosplay competitions so I have a little understanding of how much effort can be put into taking a 2d image and recreating it in real life.

    Did anyone get the issue of CURE with the Moi-même-Moitié feature? I'm curious how it looked given the radio silence from Moi-même-Moitié regarding the men's line.

    Do you know what issue it is? I can see if my local Japanese bookstore is getting it in.
    As for news, it may be some time since they just came off of holiday break. I'm surprised they have already had new items for sale. A lot more than has happened in a while.

    Aaaand Volks Dolls is going to sell the outfit for their Dollfie Dream dolls. I was pretty sure this would happen. I'm kind of sad because it would have been nice to have other Moitie outfits for bjds before this. But this is all about marketing and Volks definitely has gone after the Miku crowd before this point. From the one photo I have seen it doesn't look like it is being sold as Moitie but as designed by Peach-Pit.

    Ah sorry, they no longer carry Cure. They have dropped a lot of the fashion magazines in the store, expecting people to special order them. They did have a Snoopy mook with a blue tote bag...I didn't get that either
