    Of course it also depends on the person themself. If they are a metalhead who also carries some interest in aesthetics and Gothic, they are more likely to get along with Versailles than if they're the straight forward manly type =3 For those Versailles are some fucked up gay bastards. All the same transsexual emo shit.

    Haha, sweet story XDD
    (I love To The Chaos Inside btw ::squee:: Or Second Fear! Yay for Metal. [with or without Kamijo and men in dresses ::meev:: )
    (But we also have to say that Kamijo's voice in general is a thing for itself...'XD)

    Thank you, that was exactly what I meant. The bands that are popular with European Jrock fans tend to play pretty straight forward guitar based music and have a comparatively natural, down to earth image, i.e. light makeup or no makeup at all and they don't cross dress, and their fans tend to be less interested in bands like Versailles (or Moi dix Mois, since people brought them up) than people who are into "fancier" music like classic/technical metal or gothic rock.

    Anyway, I think Lardeen and Lem have hit the nail on the head. The only thing I would add is that perhaps a gothic audience would be a bit more accepting of Versailles` flamboyant image than a metal audience, but whether or not they would warm to their music, which isn`t very dark, is another matter.

    I found the prices of Versailles jewelry... If you thought Moi dix Mois' silver item were expensive please look at this:

    KAMIJO "Dead Orchestra" - necklace(126000 yen) -> 989€
    HIZAKI "Maihime" - bracelet (39800 yen) -> 312€
    Teru "Ookami Shounen" - bracelet (39800 yen) -> 312€
    Jasmine You "Chou Matsurika" - ring (29800 yen) -> 233€
    YUKI "nemesis" - necklace (29800 yen) -> 233€

    no comment...

    Is it the ones they are wearing with the babyssb clothes? Because I'm pretty sure the necklace Hizaki is wearing is this one;

    ..nvm it was the bracelet that was that expensive. Anyway, I would go for the necklace, it's still kind of versailles jewellry and it's only 7000yen ::meev:: Those prices are ridiculous.

    What's up with Kamijo's being three times the price of the second most expensive? o_O
    And then the ring and Yuki's necklace is only 29800 yen? xD

    Either way, any pictures of these?

    I don't think so, I just know that this jewellry is the result of the collaboration between the brand 『GUILT-CRIME』 and Versailles!
    And that it was sold during the last year's party..

    Kamijo's necklace is the one he's wearing in the Prince/Princess photos. I didn't see the others well enough to know for sure.

    These are all so freaking expensive. I'm hoping no one actually gives into this...all this jewelry crap is getting overwhelming. I don't even know if these are reputable companies or not. I know it doesn't necessarily mean anything, but I'm weary, especially ever since the Provence Esthetique "perfumes". Their site seems to have magically disappeared.

    If they're based in Japan, they're not a reputable jewelry company. I haven't seen a single piece of jewelry originating from Japan that wasn't made of substandard material and grossly overpriced.

    Did you go to Ginza? Tsutsumi has some okay stuff too:pink gold ring. And I'm sure there are other companies like that.
    In general though, I'd have to agree; I was amazed by how expensive jewelery is in Japan. You could find something for $120 at a department store there, and then come back to the USA and find something almost exactly the same for $20 at Claire's.

    Either way, I don't think I'd risk buying anything from a Gothic and Lolita or Vis Kei affiliated company, and certainly not for those prices. actually I'd rather have this either way - tacky but lovely <3

    I stayed in Ginza but didn't shop at a single place there ::meev:: At any rate $50 for a little wisp of an 18K gold ring seems decent enough so I'll give them that much credit.

    This thread's about reached its limit though, so I'll leave it up to one of our Versailles troopers to start the second Versailles thread.
