Bodyline LUCKY PACK New Years 2014

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :D


Well, I have had pretty awful shopping experiences lately
(horror story comin' up, still in a dispute process #shudders#)
- so why on earth would I spend money on a Bodyline Lucky Pack (BL LP)? 

On BLs hompage you can watch a weird video with Mr Yan hoppin' on a Snowboard and offering a "Lucky gift".

Mr Yan also warns on the front page that this Lucky Gift Pack will probably not contain anything you will like ;) LOL ...
"Sometimes maybe you wont like the size or color in these cases."


There are two different LPs ("Good Luck Bags") for 5000 yen each:
one "Gothic Lolita Punk" (Fuku002) and one "Cosplay" (Fuku003).
(Fuku 服 is Japanese for "Clothes")

The contents are as follows:

Gothic Lolita Punk
jumper skirt*1 onepiece*1 socks1*2 socks2*2 tops*1 skirt*1 dress*5
10,358 grams

Cosplay
onepiece*1 katyusha*1 ribbon*1 apron*1 under*1 pants*5 socks*2 dress*5 
10,393 grams

Now, it could easily look like you are getting all of the listed items
(aka op dress, socks, a top, a skirt etc).
BEWARE - this is Bodyline!

(And the stated 10 000 grams = 10 KG is not true either.
On the front page it states that the Lucky Pack will fit one air mail shipment, aka <1,8 kg).

Mr Yan swears free from responsibility by stating the following on the front page:
"for regist products information we have to put information to products's content.
it is not true.it is for regist products only. 
Don't make misunderstand pls."

The items listed are most probably only examples of items that the LP may contain.
I don't think the LP will contain all those listed items, or even many items, since the only photo documented BL LP I've seen so far, was a girl who got only 2 items in her LP;
A petticoat and a sax winter coat.

EGL BL LP New Year 2011
- PAN033 and a coat that hasn't been for sale on the BL website.
I am a bit unsure, but it seems like she paid 125 USD for this LP.

On the front page they state that the value of the items should be 2-3 times more than the LP itself, so the items of the LP should be valued to approx 10'000 - 15'000 yen.
600-900 SEK, 95-140 USD, 69-100 Euros, 57-86 GBP.

If I make an educated guess, I think the LP will contain the following:

* Punk OP dress 50 USD *
* Socks 13 USD *
* Skirt 40 USD *

or

* Blouse 40 USD *
* Cloth bag 13 USD *
* Punk pants 40 USD *

This is if they stay true to the actual value that they have stated! :P
You never know with BL...

We'll see how well my predictions go ;)
My guess is that Bodylines LARGE collection of sizes, sundries and styles will be reflected in these LPs ;)

You can't choose size or colours. Since I'm on the larger/taller size scale, I don't wear pink or black and my style is mostly Classic Lolita... the chances of me receiving something I'm actually going to wear is pretty slim.

LOL, So why I am ordering this LP when it is deemed to be a failure?

I'm just curious, actually! :)
It's a cheap Lucky Pack, compared to brands, only 5000 yen + 750 yen shipping (366 SEK), so I figured I will probably be able to sell the items that I don't want and doesn't fit me.

It is simply for fun and I figured it would be an interesting blog post,
so I actually don't expect to like anything ^.^

I've also heard horror stories from Lucky Packs in the past, when Bodyline still had their shady sex department (Bodyline started of as a sex store with cheap-very-revealing-costumes),
one girl had apparently received fluffy handcuffs in her LP ;)

There's also a lot of wild guesses on EGL that Mr Yan will sprinkle the LPs with those awful "Sexy Santa"-costumes o_O
But hopefully they'll all end up in the Cosplay LP (Since they are sold in the Cosplay section).

I ordered one "Fuku002" LP - Gothic Lolita Punk version.
Hopefully it isn't a large enough sum to get tax upon, but we'll see.

So keep an eye out for updates when I receive the Lucky Pack! :D
