Liz Lisa x My Melody Collaboration Carry 2014 Fukubukuro

Yeeeeeeeeeeeee ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ Guess what I received?

Here are the fukubukuro that Liz Lisa offered this year (+ the blue floral limited 109 color trunk carry)
[If interested, please see this post where I do a breakdown of Liz Lisa's 2014 fukubukuro.]
I was most interested in the Liz Lisa x My Melody collab trunk carry because 1. it's pink, 2. it's floral and 3. it's a new option.

I like a lot of the Liz Lisa x My Melody collaboration items that I've seen on VENT and in the blogs so I was insanely curious about the contents of this trunk. I knew it was available in store only, and my interest was piqued enough to try and contact a few shopping services. I was very happy to place an order with Tokyo Pirates, and Jamie's efforts resulted in a positive outcome! [Please see this post for my full review about Jamie's shopping service (5/5 would recommend).] I didn't want to make a fuss about the order I placed with TP by publicly announcing it because I didn't think there was a high chance that I would be able to get it. However, lucky lucky me, Jamie was able to snag one after queuing for 3 hours at Shibuya 109!

NEXT post --> Liz Lisa x My Melody collab fukubukuro coordinates! I'm hoping for better lighting, etc tomorrow. Today it was very rainy and grey. Done :)

Note: I know several anons on Tumblr asked me about how to acquire this trunk, and I had responded that I didn't have any recommendations. At the time, I did not. I had not completed my transaction with Tokyo Pirates and could not wholeheartedly endorse this shopping service until I had first-hand experience with it. I can now fully recommend Tokyo Pirates for future in-store purchases. I'm sorry I couldn't be much help sooner, but I'm not fond of spouting out information without any evidence to back it up.

P.S. Added some stock photos from TKL found in the outlet section Sept 9 2014!

  1. Your so lucky to be able to get a hold of the Liz Lisa X My Melody collab LP!! ><
    I didn't expect you to get one. I've know about Tokyo Pirates for a few months now and even recommended it to my sister because she REALLY wanted this fukubukuro, mainly for the trunk. In the end she was unsure about using there service. Now she kind of regrets it now. :(
    I'm glad you were able to get a hold of this fukubukuro. The design of this trunk is very pretty, more girly and I love My Melody. And thank you for the review for Tokyo Pirates.

    1. I didn't want to talk about my order publicly too much because I didn't think there would be a high likelihood of me getting it and I didn't want everyone to know how disappointed I was lol. It turned out much better than expected and I'm happy to have it thanks to the above-and-beyond effort Tokyo Pirates put in. I was also fortunate to place my order in early December so I was her first priority for LPs, otherwise I don't think I would have gotten it if she had to go to other places first!

    2. Yeah I completely understand about you not publicly announcing it. :) It's great that you took the chance of ordering this LP through shopping service, and the result was good. It looks like you now have a new Liz Lisa trunk for use, and a very unique one too. :)

    3. Yeah I really don't know if I want to keep it because I still like the trunk I got last year better and I really don't need two. I'm definitely not ready to give it up in this moment, but maybe down the line, since I'm definitely not going to use it any time soon lol. Out of all the things in this order, I'm happiest with the coat, blanket and pouch :)

    4. If you do decide to give up the trunk. :3 I know my sister would be really interested in it. LOL And I like the coat as well. I like how the fur is detachable, the coat in the Rose Carry doesn't look like the fur can be taken off. .__. The blanket and pouch are definitely worth keeping.

    5. If I decide to sell, I already have someone interested, but since she's international, if she finds that she doesn't want to pay the shipping fees (ugh it'll be ridiculous I'm sure, even if the trunk is empty), I'll definitely ask your sister next. I may want more than she wants to pay since I ended up spending more than anticipated due to customs fees but I definitely want to give her the opportunity.

    6. Thank You for the opportunity!!!!! ^^

  2. T^T I wanted this LP. When I first saw this on the LL blog my first thought was "I want that trunk, I don't care about the content." You're so lucky!!!! White Rabbit Express was unable to get this for me, since they were closed during New Years =/

    1. Remind me next year not to purchase ANY no matter how much I like any of the bags. So much winter stuff I simply cannot use -__-

      Delete
    2. Nope. I'm the worst, I'll tell you to get them. Get them all. Sorry. *I'm not joking, I will tell you to get them all,*

    3. Hahaha. I'd be the same way.

  6. oooh my goodness that pink ruffle top is adorable ;u;
    I really love the cardigan you got too!!
    so sad I ended up not being able to get any fukubukuro this year ;A; boyfran is planning on going home next winter though, so I'm making him bring back a bunch for me haha (I'd love to go with, but I doubt I'll be able to...)

    1. Unfortunately I might end up selling quite a few items simply because they are long-sleeve/heavier material items that I can't see myself ever wearing in Hawaii. And since I don't travel much, it doesn't make any sense for them to just sit on the rack no matter how much I like them especially since I know I could probably find them a great home elsewhere ):
      Crossing my fingers that you'll also be able to go :)

      Delete
    2. makes sense.
      if I can get a job sooner rather than later, I'll have to keep an eye out for those items lol

      Delete
    3. If you want anything in particular, lmk whenever and I'll put it on the side for you. I'm not super attached to anything except the coat, blanket and pouch lol.

  7. Awesome! When I read your post some weeks ago about you debating whether to get LL fukubukuro or not, I had a feeling you would get this particular one. Somehow I just won't believe a huge LL fan like you would pass up this opportunity. XD

    Ahhh I really like that ruffle long sleeve top! It's so cute. I wish it comes with the vintage rose carry >__<

    I got the vintage rose carry and it just arrived a couple of days ago. And I just finished writing up a post on it. ;)

    1. Haha I really didn't think Tokyo Pirates would be able to get it (through no fault of her own but simply due to the popularity and limited number of this item) but I'm very happy she did. Just sad that I had to pay $55 in customs fees ): I look forward to seeing your post!

  8. Ahh!! Everything you got is so cute! You're so lucky to get it!

    1. You should! They're really fun. It just sucks that the shipping is so expensive because otherwise the price would be *perfect*!

    2. Ya, you're right! Custom fees suck too T_T

      Delete
    3. Yes, It seems that I get hit with them more often than a lot of other people who order around the same time and the same amount of items. I don't know if it's where I live or just some really particular customs agent, but it really feels like wasted money when it's going to customs fees.

    4. Ugh, sorry for you :/ I agree : it really feels like wasted money >.< But don't worry, I believe luck always turns! :)

    5. Yeah I guess I should be thankful I don't get charged with every single order.
      Thanks for all the blog comments!

  12. How cute!! Everything looks adorable~ How much would you say the trunk weighs on it's own? I'm thinking of purchasing it from Y!Japan and want to be prepared for shipping. Thank you!

    1. Thank you!
      I don't have the trunk with me right now but I can try and weigh it when I get back. Not sure if the scale I have will be able to give you an accurate calculation though.
      And the shipping price will be highly variable depending on the shipping method and how it is packaged etc. I would just suggest asking the seller for a shipping estimate.
