☽Sailor Moon☾ Luna (Dupe) Purse



Aiee, what's up people?

It's been awhile that I actually posted something onto this blog...I've been severely neglecting this blog, sorry about that :/ I was actually going to delay this post as I still have one other post that is still in progress, but this post is going to be short and sweet, whereas the other one is going to be long. 

Anyways, today's post, is about something I ordered off Ebay, when they were having a good sale on most of their merchandise.

I placed an order on the "Sailor Moon Luna Purse" at the last week of October and it didn't ship to my house until the 3rd week of November (which is this week, actually!).

Note: This purse is faux, it is NOT the actual Samantha Vega x Sailor Moon Collaboration, so there are a few differences, but overall, the faux purse looks pretty good, just missing some details from the original.


 PACKAGING 
→The package arrived in standard mail form←

→The purse was wrapped with clear bagging←

→Under the plastic bagging, the seller also wrapped the purse with a soft white mesh←


CLOSEUPS
Overview of the purse.
The outside of the purse is quite sturdy, however, there was a noticeable scuff at the left corner.

Another closeup shot.
The metal pegs on the bottom are also in good quality and very sturdy.
Opened view of the purse.
In the front, there is a thin pocket compartment. Unlike the original, there is no printed pattern/lining of Luna and Artemis that would be on the inside of the flap and purse.
The inside of the purse.
The purse has 1 zipper pocket and 2 pocket compartments, small and big. The inside material is made up of brown satin.

Some additional styling shots with the purse.




The strap of the purse was also adjustable, so you can either make it really long or short.


 THOUGHTS 

Original vs Dupe?
-The ears of the original luna purse is a lot pointier, whereas the dupe one, the ears are rounded
-There is a cute Luna and Artemis pattern inside the original.
-No branded Samantha Vega logo in the dupe.
-The crescent moon is metal in the original and has "Samantha Vega ♡ Sailor Moon" engraved on it.
-The dupe has the crescent moon stitched on.


Is the Dupe purse worth it?
Pros:
Price is cheap, I got the purse for $9!!!
Sturdy purse
Almost exactly as the original
Strap is adjustable
Cute design
Cons:
There was a scuff on the purse
Missing details such as the pattern and engraving
Ears are slightly bended


Ultimately, you get what you paid for. If you're a super fan or a person of details, than I would recommend buying the original one and shelling out a few more dollars.

But I think the dupe is fine enough, it still has the overall cute design of the purse.
I rate this product:
❤❤❤♡♡

  5. I think the dupes are a good, affordable option... especially if you can't get your hands on the Samantha Vega one!
    I actually bought the Sailormoon backpack dupe off eBay a few weeks ago too, and it's pretty good!

    1. Agree. :) with the dupe, you're still essentially getting the same thing, minus the details.

      I feel like sailor moon is making a comeback for some reason these days :p

  6. $9 for a sturdy purse is a great deal though! Prices like that for handbags are pretty hard to find
