Follow The White Rabbit Giveaway Items

Along with the Peach and Lily competition I won, I was also amazingly lucky to win Follow The White Rabbit's 1000 follower giveaway on Facebook! It's quite strange, normally if I win stuff, I can't use it! Like Persona 4 Gold for PSVita, but I don't have a PSVita. I also won a £50 voucher to a Japanese denim brand in London from Hyper Japan about a year ago but all their items were more expensive than £50 and you had to go to their shop IRL to buy the items! So that ended up not being used... XD

But! I got a lot of adorable Lolita and Fairy Kei items from this giveaway, all handmade by the amazingly talented Bunny Kawaii at Follow The White Rabbit, based in France! They'll be great for black and pastel coords and are a great starter for me for Fairy Kei! This is kind of a review of Follow The White Rabbit's service and items - there's no point making reviews for each separate item so there are notes on quality and aesthetic throughout!

The items came in a big box, all carefully packaged and wrapped - Bunny noted that the box was used but I honestly didn't notice and would never have known if she hadn't said! She also included a cute little note on a flyer. This is all a prelude to her thoughtfulness and care for detail!

I love these mint and lavender candy hair clips! I think they'll look adorable on pigtails, especially for Fairy Kei! These are stuffed with wadding or stuffing but they're very firm and plush, not at all saggy or deflated - they will keep their shape for as long as you use them. They're on silver snap clips, carefully sewn on for stability so they definitely won't budge in hair!

This bracelets is very beautiful - I think the resin heart is made by hand as she has a lot of resin items, customised with stickers, glitter, rhinestones, etc. The pearls are glass and are really heavy and high quality! I love the purple bracelet and feel I will get a lot of wear out of it!

Two fluffy star charms in mint green and white - every single bow on these items are really high quality, soft and have a gorgeous shape! I'm jealous! XD These also have hair clips and brooch pins on the back of them, so you can wear them on your phone or bag, hair or as a brooch! So versatile! /blur

A super cute necklace in pink and white! It has a huge resin heart filled with glitter, cute stickers, rhinestones and pearls, so adorable! It also has a smaller heart, as if it wasn't cute enough?! The necklace has ball bearing chain in a matching colour!

The white and pink polka dot bows are shoe clips and the lilac and cream ones are hair clips. The shoe clips have a rhinestone on each corner and a heart rhinestone in the middle! The lilac ones have a gorgeous sweeter Classic, vintage style to them.

A cute fluffy blue hair bow and pink ribbon hair barette. I love the fluffy fleece style material Bunny uses for the blue hair clips and star clips, it's so soft, like a blanky! The pink hair bow has a silver barrette clip on the back and reminds me of a rosette. It'll really pretty up a ponytail or bun!

I absolutely love this necklace! The chain is so heavy with high quality glass pearls in really cute colours - it's unusual to see anything more than white or pink pearls. The ribbon bow is also really adorable and is made from high quality satin ribbon. There's also a yellow glittery resin heart jewel - this necklace is so cute and will look perfect with a lot of Sweet Angelic Pretty dresses! There was also some lovely pink and blue wristcuffs with adorable satin ribbon bows too!

These two cute charms/straps are a yellow ice cream and star - most of these accessories have a lovely 6% Dokidoki or Chocomint feel to them but they're handmade, which is even better! I love the ice cream strap, it's so cute and I love a pom pom as the ice cream scoop! The yellow star charm has glittery yellow ribbon for the strap but the glitter is kind of embroidered into the ribbon so there's no messy imprint or residue when you touch it! The ice cream charm has a brooch pin on the back and the star charm has a hair clip and brooch pin on the back!

I got these three lovely resin rings with puff 3D stickers, Rilakkuma stickers, glitter, etc. and they're so cute! I love rings and feel I don't have many for sweeter outfits so these will be really lovely.

These rings are so yummy and cute looking! A pink heart with a perfect looking chocolate sauce drizzle and rhinestone and a big star ring that is half pink on top and half white - it looks like jelly or creme caramel, so yummy! I wanna take a bite out of them! These items inspire me to finally get the resin that I have and make things from it but I'm scared! XD

This is a headband that was a bit hard to picture with just one angle. It has a small teddy bear with rhinestones on it on the left side, similar to the toys used in Hime and decoden items, a big puffy blue candy and a blue satin ribbon bow. This is a really cute headband and everything feels very stable and secure so there's no worry of bobbing your head a bit and something falling off!

These are two Follow the White Rabbit themed items that I love! The first is a badge; I think lots of cute badges look adorable in Fairy Kei and Decora style, plus it's quite hard to find cutesy, J-fashion inpired badges or you have to buy them vintage, from Etsy, etc. so it's nice to have this one to add to my collection! I also got a big Boston-style bag with Follow the White Rabbit's signature design on it - the bag is absolutely amazing! A lot of handmade brand merchandise, like t-shirts, badges, bags, etc. are quite...not very good quality, I have to admit. Bags are usually thin canvas tote bags with a black design printed on it but this has chocolate brown straps and base with the cute pink design on the front and back. The bag is really thick, plush yet soft so it's amazingly high quality and will last a long time - you could easily pay £30-£40 for this kind of bag, especially with a handmade bag! I love it a lot and will wear it a lot with Lolita and Fairy Kei styles!

Here's everything together - that's a lot of stuff! :o As I said, I'd like to get into Fairy Kei, mixing pastel colours with black so these accessories will be so great for cute outfits with black hair, pastel accessories, etc! I'm really happy I won something I will get use out of, I can't get over how cute everything is! They were all individually packaged up with White Rabbit tags, as you can see - such detail, it really looks professional!

Even though I won the giveaway purely by random chance, I wasn't approached for this post, sponsored, paid, etc! I just couldn't wait to show off my goodies and I hope you liked this post! Hopefully you'll see all these accessories being worn in future outfit posts!
