I'm sure you've noticed that there are a lot more shops on my blog's sidebar~!

Today's spotlight is on this Storenvy shop called Harajuku Fashion! It's a store based in China and has a ton of super popular fashion trend pieces! They also have a second store found here.

I'm very excited to share this kawaii review with you today~! I've been a huge fan of the Sailor Moon series since it came to the USA back in the 90s. And with the new reboot, we get a lot of merchandise!
I can't tell you how bad I wanted the original Star Locket. And I got so frustrated knowing that I could've gotten it when it first came out. I got even more annoyed when I look around on eBay and saw them for no cheaper than 350$~! But thanks to the new series, I could choose the Proplica or this one. I actually prefer this one!
When Sailor Moon Collectibles (I LOVE this site!) announced Bandai's release of two kinds of lockets, I knew it was my chance to finally get one! The proplica series locket is a perfect replica of the items Sailor Moon used in the series but they're also quite pricey. The one I got, from the Moonlight Memory Series, is actually based on the original toys. So basically like a newer version!
I put my order in to my trustworthy shopping service FromJapan where they were able to reserve it! When it finally came to the release date and it was shipped to them, they notified me. And finally, it made its way over to me at my doorstep!
I actually didn't take a shipping box photo (sorry!) because I was too excited! It was well-packaged and nothing was disturbed during its travel. Inside all of the packaging sat my newest treasure, all wrapped in bubble wrap for extra security~!
Here are photos of the box from all sides~ It even has the official sticker on the back! (click on the smaller photos to see them bigger)
And here is what you get inside the box!
The Star Locket sits in a fitted plastic sleeve so it doesn't shift around. There's also the instructions (in Japanese of course) and a chain~! I'm pretty sure many Sailor Moon cosplayers loved that detail.
Here it is! Isn't it gorgeous? Unlike its proplica counterpart, the gold coloring is a lot shinier and brighter. I guess because the proplica has to look more real?
Like a real music box, you turn the little key in the back. The cover opens and closes nicely. It's sturdy but also has a delicate touch. If that makes any sense. XD
And my favorite part~ the inside! The background is a holographic foil with the phases of the moon. The one thing I love that the Moonlight Memory Series did better was the gem in the center. The proplica's just looks like a pink circle but this one looks more like an actual gem!
And of course it plays music with the Crescent Moon turning! Here is a video of it in action~
