The End Of Immortal Eden by AatP

Today I will be taking a look at the new series by Alice and the Pirates. It is called End of Immortal Eden. The series contains 2 dresses, a skirt, socks, a shirt, a headbow, a bonnet, a headpiece and a few pieces of jewellery.

This is the JSK. The bodice is very well fitted and a good shape. I also like the slight heart shape neckline. The bodice has what I like to call a 'fake bow' as in there is material gathered to make it look like there is a bow stuck on the front. I still think that 'fake bows' can sit a little strange over the chest area. This dress has not convinced me that they are a good idea, but this dress looks better than similar designs I have seen and I think that is because it is more subtle. The fake bow is surrounded by pretty lace, which makes the neckline a cute shape. The front also has a ribbon corset. The ribbon looks well spaced and good quality. There is no detail at the waist, but I don't think this dress really needs anything there. The straps are a bit too thin for my liking, but you have the option of removing the straps to make this a strapless JSK. I think it looks better without the straps. The back has another ribbon corset which is again, neatly spaced and looks tidy. It conceals the shirring panel very well. The skirt part has a beautiful bell shape to it and I think it is absolutely perfect for this dress. You would be able to fit a decent amount of petticoat underneath to suit a classic or gothic lolita shape. The skirt has been kept fairly plain, so you can see the print in its full glory. The bottom hem is finished with some very beautiful rose lace.

This is the OP (although it is called JSK II on the site. I am going to call it an OP). The bodice shape is fine, although not as fitted as the JSK. However, the shape is helped by the solid colour ribbon belt. The OP also has wonderful waist ties, which have the lace part of the print on them. The ribbon belt appears to use good quality ribbon and the simple bow in the middle adds a nice bit of detail, without looking too sweet. The bodice also has a gorgeous cluster of roses with 2 lines of pearls hanging underneath. I think this is a really beautiful idea and I hope Alice and the Pirates use this design again in the future. The neckline has a nice square shape to it, finished with lace which although looks good, is not as pretty as some of the other types of lace used in this series. The sleeves look very stretchy. They are slightly puffy but thankfully, they don't look too sweet for this very gothic dress. This dress does not have any shirring and the back has been kept very plain. This dress also has a very pretty bell shape and it is suitable for the style of print. Like the JSK, the skirt has been kept very plain and the bottom hem is finished with rose lace again.

And this is the print close-up. If you read my last post about my 2012 wishes (which I wrote before this print went online), you would know I wanted to see more birdcages in lolita and I am very excited about this print. I think it is stunning! I love the decorative birdcage and the way the roses wrap around it. The roses have areas of light and drops of dew on them, giving them extra depth. The feathers float effortlessly around the print. I also like the line of lace with the subtle inclusion of the brand name hidden inside. This print is available in green, bordeaux, navy (shown) and black. The navy is my favourite, but the black/red comes a very close second. I have not been this excited about a print for a while now. There is not a single thing I dislike about this print!

This necklace is one of the pieces of jewellery being released. I like how it is not over-crowded with feathers, so it doesn't look too fussy. I also like the rose and the little brand logo charm.

This is the very feathery headdress. I wish it had been made a bit simpler because I think it is going to look too OTT when teamed with the dresses. If they took away a few of the feathers, I think it would look a lot nicer. I would stick with the headbow or bonnet.

So overall, this series gets a massive thumbs up from me. I love this set and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw the first scans appearing. I think the dresses are beautiful, and so is the skirt (not shown in this post). If I had to choose a dress I would go for the JSK, but I do like the use of roses on the OP. I think there are some very beautiful pieces in this series. Would I buy from this series? Do you really need to ask!? Of course I would buy from this series! It is such a shame I have already spent all of my Christmas money! This print is being added to my wishlist and it is definitely going to be one of my top priorities.


  1. I love this series! It really is gorgeous and even has an awesome name! The whole bird/feathers theme has always been a favorite of mine and these pieces are definitely a great start of what's to come for the new year! Thanks for the review!
