I recently ordered my first Fukubukuro! For those who do not know what this is: A Fukubukuro, also called lucky or mystery bag, is a Japanese New Year custom. Mostly clothing and jewellery merchants fill grab bags with random contents and sell them cheap. Since the bags are only sold around New Year they are much sought-after and quickly gone!
First I wanted a Lucky Bag from Glad News or Ghost of Harlem but both were gone immediately! Some days later I found out about Listen Flavor and their Fukubukuro:
I ordered the Fukubukuro Version 2 via otakumode.com and it arrived 5 days later! I paid 66$, so around 60 €uro and I also had to pay customs D: The bag should contain a T-shirt, a hoodie, a long-sleeved top, a short-sleeved top and a sweatshirt or a hoodie.
A link to the items on the website is included so you can buy it there if you want ;D
I got a Devil Cheer Girl Hoodie in black, the Sweet Logo Lace-up Sweatshirt in purple and the Horror Lip Harness Top in black. I already got the Devil Cheer Girl on a T-shirt but I really like the hoodie!
Those 2 T-shirts were also included: Sweet Unicorn T-shirt in light blue and the Catgirl Half-sleeve T-shirt in off-white. For me it is more like a pale salmon pink xD
All in all I like all items but I know I will never wear the Unicorn shirt even though I like the print. It is just too pastel-coloured for me!
Funnily enough I ordered the Sweet Logo Lace-up Sweatshirt in black and a Mameshi Pamyu Pamyu Raglan Shirt with my Fukubukuro. I did not expect the Sweathirt to be in there since it is a pretty new item:
I am pretty happy with all my gets and it was a bargain for me! I saw some reviews on Youtube and I have to say I was lucky with my gets! Here are the links: *click* *click* *click*
All items are worth 20.800 Yen, that are 160€! With the customs I paid 100€ which is okay for me :)
I am already looking forward to wearing my new shirts!
Did you buy a Fukubukuro this year?
I also bought a jewellery lucky bag from gargle! I never heard of that brand before but I gave it a try. Do you want to see it too?
