hey everyone! it's time for another lolita 52 post. this time, #49- my favorite lolita print!
my favorite print is angelic pretty's milky planet, released in 2010. it comes in yellow, pink, blue, and black as shown above, and a popular extra color made in replicas is lavender. the only official item in lavender is the special JSK. i LOVE THIS PRINT IN EVERY SINGLE COLORWAY. oftentimes, i will really adore or see myself owning multiple colors of an AP print, but for milky planet, i just think every single color is perfect with this print.
plus, it has ice cream lace.
also, IT'S GLITTERY.
but let's talk about the print itself. IT IS A WONDERLAND. beautiful pastels in some of my favorite color combinations (pink x yellow x blue, pink and mint, lavender and pink, etc), drippy melty ice cream motifs mixed in with carousels, castle houses, ferris wheels, and an assortment of treats in SPACE!?!??! shooting stars!! cupcakes!! melty moons!! this print is overloaded with tons of space and ice cream motifs, and those are two of my favorite things. i am obsessed with this print, and find it absolutely perfect in every way. i have studied each tiny drawing on it, loving all the tiny amounts of detail put into it.
since the dress versions are too small for my bust and my favorite colorway is yellow, my dream item for this print to own is the skirt in yellow. sadly, i do not own any MP items. i was trying to buy it as my graduation present when i graduated high school a year ago but every time i tried to get it, it ended badly with sellers trying to gouge me for triple the original price. i would like to get a dress replica in my measurements from Dreaming of Lolita to tide me over, but i've heard the quality of their MP replicas has gone downhill recently and is hit or miss. so, i'm going to wait until their reviews brighten up to get a dress from them, but i would like to so i can have an MP dress that fits me.
hopefully someday, this perfect work of art will be mine! if not, i'll just have to buy the next AP dress involving space and ice cream that i fall in love with. or, hope for a reissue. honestly, this print is so popular that i'm surprised it hasn't been reissued yet! i sadly missed the boat on the initial sales by just a couple months. so close, but yet so far.
