Thanks for posting MikkiMausu; I wasn't expecting any further updates until mid-January. What a great surprise!
these! These are much less "cute character" than the first CCC release, I think, more like real fashion. Shellie's earmuffs are adorable! But the price...sheesh...
Still, both coveralls look like they could actually be adapted for all seasons, making them the matching default set for the two bears. And Duffy's cap and jacket seem a direct response to the US Aviator we've talked about so much. In fact, this is instantly for me, the go-to "Adventurer Duffy" costume I have always wanted. It's actually iconic, I think. Like Mickey's red shorts, this jacket is the Duffy look I've been waiting for forever. I'm even more excited than I was about last year's "Paddington" coats!^^
While I love Shellie's (and will be buying both - those earmuffs
it doesn't have quite the same impact as Duffy's. It's very cute and feels very specifically "Shellie May" and not just "cute," but Duffy's...
* This is the costume I would never take him out of (if I didn't have so many!^^). This is the one look that actually captures exactly how I feel about this character. I do kinda wish the cap was brown, and I would like more than just a simple T-shirt, but...meh...this is just AWESOME!
*I take it back. With the cardigan worn under
the coveralls and a newsy cap or her default bow, she's every bit the plucky adventurer Duffy is! In fact, that cardigan is the perfect match for Shellie's default Skirt/Panty set!^^
I'm already going with a friend on 1/13 for Tower of Terror - Level 13
. If anybody wants these CCC outfits (and only these), let me know and I'll work out picking them up. I won't get anything else at that time because I'm going with friends and it's not supposed to be a shopping day. DuffyPost mark-up for these will be just 25% and if you get Sweet Duffy merchandise too, you'll only pay Park fees once and I'll combine shipping.
I'm still planning to go 1/20 for Sweet Duffy launch, so save everything else for then (and if the new CCC outfits are still available, I'll still offer the 25% on this item only
). But wait, there's more!^^...just checked the Official Site
again and found...THIS!!!
Full-size costumes are ￥4200, badges are ￥1500. With so many new items and the special Sweet Duffy discount, 1/20 looks like another BIG Shopping Day. We're still waiting for the Sweet Duffy update in the next few weeks, but please be thinking about Wish Lists, adding funds to PayPal and being ready for quick turnaround once it's all announced. Let's try to make the 1/20 DuffyPost as smooth and fast and Christmas was!
