From Victorian maiden we have new velveteen dresses for winter including the Noble Frill and Noble Ribbon velveteen dresses - the former is more of a jumper skirt, while the latter is a long-sleeve one-piece dress.

Innocent World has sent us the Ellen Clapsaddle dresses and skirts, with border illustrations by the famed late 19th/early 20th century illustrator of the same name. We've also received the Gargoyles of Notre Dame de Paris jumper skirts, capturing the sinister beauty of Gothic deco and architecture, as well as their Angel Bags and a few Rose Perfume Wallets - these make great gifts!

Now accepting bitcoin payments!


For those of you living in the future, we are now accepting the up-and-coming virtual currency bitcoin as payment! Simply select our standard checkout, then bitcoin as your payment method. You'll be taken to a Bitpay automatically generated invoice where you can pay with your own bitcoin wallet.

This is a new frontier for everyone, but we've had some inquiries about it and it was easy for us to implement - Bitpay is fully integrated with our shopping cart service. As with all bitcoin transactions, you do need to have your own bitcoin wallet already set up, but from there, using it is easy.

We expect most of you will continue using credit cards and PayPal for the time being, but we're always trying to stay ahead of the curve, and now you've got one more option.

Start shopping now!

Aldious Live Report – Kashiwa Thumb Up 11/04/2013

We don't write a lot of live reports, but Aldious stands at the crossroads of music and fashion, and sometimes we like to just bring you guys something fun. It's a rare day that we happen to be in Japan at the same time a certain KERA model we know is playing live with her new band, so we couldn't pass up the chance to go to the show. We were given full access to bring you some great photos and video!

Read on to the end for a special introduction from the band themselves!

There's a boom in all-female bands in Japan right now, and Aldious is the most powerful and popular of Japan's female metal bands. Their three studio albums have all hit the top 10 of the Oricon daily charts. Re:NO joined the group a little more than a year ago, and she's already written and performed some of their most well known songs. The band's first album with Re:NO, District Zero, also reached their highest chart position so far - #7 on the Oricon Weekly Album Ranking chart (and #4 on the daily chart).

This October, Aldious released their double A-side single Dominator/I Don't Like Me (each with its own promotional video), and the November 4 show at Thumb Up in Kashiwa was the second date on their supporting tour. Check out a sample of the Dominator video if you've never seen them before:



11/04/2013 Kashiwa Thumb Up
Set List
1. Re:peatedly
2. Luft
3. Scrash
4. Wish Song
5. Defended Desire
6. Scabby Heart
7. Mermaid
8. 菊花 (Kikuka)(Instrumental Ver.)
9. Instrumental 2
10. Dominator
11. Suicide
12. Eternal Delusion
13. Red Strings
14. Raise Your Fist
15.夜桜 (Yozakura)

Encore
16. I Don’t Like Me
17. Deep
18. White Crow

The set list was about evenly mixed between new and old - Aldious have even re-released a few of their older songs with Re:NO singing. Re:NO's brought a new look and sound to the band, but they're not afraid to play the songs that won them their longtime fans.

One of the great things about Japan is that even top-charting bands still play "live houses" - small club venues. Thumb Up is a live house, which makes it easy to get close to the band, and makes for a pretty crazy crowd!

Of course, the band announced that the venue was sold out. They told us the crowds are getting bigger on every tour!

Yoshi's one of the band's founders and its main songwriter. All the musicians in the band are virtuosos, though - the instrumental songs they played were as fun to watch as Re:NO's vocals.

But Re:NO really knows how to rile up a crowd. Aldious isn't her first band - like a few of the other KERA models, she's actually been in music for years, and she owns the stage.

Their music videos look serious, but on stage the entire band is actually smiling almost all the time. They really seemed to be having fun playing this show.

Of course, no Japanese concert is complete without MC segments, and Aldious spent theirs talking about the tour, Yoshi's new skirt, and filming their last two music videos. Since the latest single is a double A-side, they filmed both videos at the same time and it took more than 24 straight hours before they could go home.

Re:NO did a full wardrobe change for the encore, into the white dress that she's wearing in the I Don't Like Me music video.


Re:NO wrote this song herself.


The crowd went insane at the end of White Crow, the last song in the show.

After the show was successfully completed, we met up with the band in the dressing room where they filmed this special message introducing themselves to their new fans overseas (which hopefully means you!):


Check out the band's official homepage.

BONUS!
The flowers we sent to the band! This is a custom in Japan, and you'll see it for most bigger bands.

Re:NO also wrote about these flowers on her own blog.

Aaaand... we're back!

Just a quick note to let you know we're back on US soil and have resumed regular services. Bear with us for a couple of days as it may take us a little time to get fully caught up on email responses, sending invoices, posting new reserve series and other things we normally do, but we are already caught up on shipping orders out.


It was a successful trip (as usual!) but the one thing from it you'll see very shortly is our Aldious live report. We don't do a lot of live reports, but then it's not often that KERA models we know begin singing for famous bands and happen to be playing while we're there. And we like to give you guys something new to look at after every trip we take to Japan. Re:NO was awesome, as was the whole band, so watch for that report in the next couple days!

The rest of our trip was behind the scenes meetings, but you'll get hidden benefits from that too... and who knows, maybe something bigger a little later.

Japan-bound: shipping suspension from Oct 31 - Nov 11


Some of you may recognize the image above - it's the same one we used to notify you about the Tokyo Rebel team Japan visit earlier this year. Well, we're going back for the second time in 2013!

Consequently, there will be a temporary suspension of order shipments from October 31 through November 11. The online store will remain open for your orders. We still recommend ordering during that time if we have something you want, because someone else can still do the same and many items are limited in number. We will ship orders out in the order they were placed as soon as we return from Japan.

We will be responding to important emails, although please allow a little extra time.

Please place your orders on or before October 30 for shipping prior to the shipping suspension. Orders placed after that date will ship after the 11th.

We realize these suspensions can be inconvenient to our customers and we try not to do it unless absolutely necessary. However, there are a lot of behind-the-scenes benefits to you from these overseas excursions as well, even if they're not always obvious - this is how we started the business in the first place, after all!

Thank you for your understanding!
