The Tokyo Pirates Shopping Service will be unable to accept anymore orders from now (29th December) until the 30th January. Current orders and lucky pack orders will still be processed as usual.
Sorry for the inconvenience! We’ll be back soon. :)
Tokyo Pirates will be on a partial hiatus from 19th December - 26th December. Online orders and lucky pack reserves will still be received, but unfortunately I will not be able to do in-store orders during that time. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Victorian Tassel has been announced for December 20th, 2014. AP’s yearly velvet release. ^^
Angelic Pretty x Imai Kira Collab 2014 - Perfume of Wonderland/Wonderland’s Perfume (it can be translated either way)
These are currently available for Princess Dreamy Carnival attendees only. There is only one colourway available for this series at the moment. :)
Angelic Pretty’s x Imai Kira’s Milky Cross Collection ~ 2014
These are the cuts and colours available for the Princess Dreamy Carnival tea party attendees. Hopefully Angelic Pretty will do a general release later. ^^
The cut-off date for lucky pack and all other orders will be 30/12/2014
After that the Tokyo Pirates shopping service will be on hiatus from 1st January - 29th January.
That time will be dedicated to shipping out lucky packs and sorting any remaining orders. If I manage to get through things quickly, I may end the hiatus early, but I don’t know how busy things will be yet. Just wanted to let everyone know in advance! ^^
For those who missed out on Lucky Key, these dresses are still available in Tokyo stores (only in the above cuts and colourways). I’m not sure if there are more cuts/colours located in other branches, but it’s possible. :) The mint skirt is also still available.
Baby and Alice and the Pirates lucky packs can be reserved from Monday 1st December. The lucky packs dress set names are as follows (this is my own translation):
Baby - Secret Letter from Kitty Chan JSK set 1 (pink) - 19,440 yen (includes tax)
Baby - Secret Letter from Kitty Chan JSK set 2 (navy) - 19,440 yen (includes tax)
For the Baby lucky packs you’ll get a JSK, round collar blouse, ribbon headbow, OTKs and Kuma Kumya Chan mini mini set.

A/P - Wonder Rabbit Magical Card Tea Party JSK set 2 - 18,360 yen (includes tax)

I will be taking on a part-time job in the coming October, which unfortunately means I won’t be able to commit myself to this service full-time anymore.
As a result, from the 25th September, I will no longer be accepting auction orders or online orders. I will be doing in-store only. I am unsure yet if it will be restricted to lolita only or if I will continue to do everything. It depends on how busy things get, but for now it will be general.
Regarding online orders, I will not be handling them myself after September, but I am going to be training a friend (and helping where necessary) to take on that side of the business. So, online orders will be available again soon after. I shall make another announcement when they can be accepted again.
Please be aware that although it will be under the Tokyo Pirates name she will be running things in her own style. This means she will be starting off with the current framework, but will be able to decide her own fees later and her own restrictions. I will not have a say in how she runs that side of things, and it will depend on her own other commitments. It will also be a probation period as she sees whether she can integrate the shopping service into her schedule.
She is from Thailand, but speaks fluent English. I can vouch for her in saying she’s a lovely and honest person which is why I’m entrusting this part of my precious service baby to her. :)
I apologize for any convenience this might cause some of my absolutely wonderful, regular customers. I don’t know if this will be a permanent state of things, but for now I hope I can still continue to do business with many of you! (^_^)
Hey everyone! The shopping service is back in business, but things will be very slow for the first week or two due to a great, big backlog of inquiries (over 60 inquiries to sort through - thank you!). I’ll do my best to get through things as fast as possible and respond to your messages. Thanks for understanding!
We have a winner! ☆*･゜ﾟ･*\(^O^)/*･゜ﾟ･*☆
The winner was selected by tallying up the number of people who had entered and using a random number generator to keep things fair. It came out as lucky number 7, so pengupooh, you are the winner. Congratulations! I’ll message you so that you can collect your prize.
Thank you so much to everyone who entered! I have already found several things on people’s wishlists, so hopefully Collectstor will continue to be a useful tool for everyone. They’ve added a new ‘wishlist’ category now too due to demand. (^_^)
From 1st - 13th August, the Tokyo Pirates shopping service will be on hiatus. The cut off date for new orders will be the 28th July. Replies may also be a little slow for the next few days due to a slight overload. Service will be resumed as normal after the 13th.
Current orders will continue to be processed as usual, so please don’t worry if you have an event that occurs during that time or if you have a package that is still to arrive and be shipped. They will still be processed. Exceptions may also be made for lolita reserves or releases. Sorry for any inconvenience!
The giveaway will end and the winner will be announced on July 31st via lottery shuffle. Good luck!
I will be using a new website for wishlists! Now anyone and everyone can make wishlists for free!
Just upload the items you want to the website and title the album “Lolita Wishlist”. Don’t forget to add the brand name (e.g. Angelic Pretty) and the name of the item (e.g. Musee du Chocolat One Piece in green). You can title it as whatever you like, but the more information you put, the more it gives me to go on when I’m out shopping. If I see anything you have on your wishlist in store, I’ll contact you to let you know (if more than one person has it, it will be first come, first served).
You can check the website out here - http://collectstor.com
It’s a place where you can also display your own collections, see other people’s collections, favourite other people’s items and potentially use for trading/selling. You’ll be able to see how many people want what you have which is pretty useful for closet cleaning. ;) You’ll also be able to describe/give reviews on your own items which will be helpful for others (similar to lolibrary but with more emphasis on you and your personal collection).
In short, I think this will be an excellent website for far more than wishlists and we should get the lolita community on here. (^_^) It’s not limited to lolitas of course! It can be used for anything you collect/want to collect - music, anime, fashion goods, specialist foods, etc.
(Please bear in mind that those who already have private and paid-for wishlists with me have the advantage of priority on their wishlist items as well as the benefit of me viewing their items regularly. Unfortunately, due to too much demand I can’t offer this service to more. Sorry for the inconvenience!)
Baby has come out with yet another new gorgeous series. This one is called “Romantic Irony” based on Romeo and Juliet. There’s a lot of variations in this series. Check it out here - http://ift.tt/1qr77gr
It looks like Angelic Pretty’s Lucienne Dream series will probably be released this Saturday. I still have slots open if anyone wishes to buy. Just email me at email@example.com with any inquiries. ^^
