First Look At Mulberry

Prototype

Finished Product 
(I  personally think the colour of  costume in the photos
 is off due to the camera used)

No offense to anyone but the actual headpiece looking sub par. You can tell R and A didn't do these headpieces. They looking unfinished.

Something is not right....

Ok hi....um these are my pics taken from my BB around 12am last nite...the costume is very true to the prototype colour and it really is very pretty...the only deviation from the prototype (i think) is the feathery arm and leg pieces aren't in the costume any longer (at least in frontline) and the backpack is huge...at least bigger than it had looked in the launch :) I don't want u guys thinking the costume isn't lovely due to my lack of phototakerouter skills....it's really gorgeous or else I wouldn't have wanted to share it with u guys.... ;)

hmmmm if you say so!!! i know sometimes taking pics with a BB effects the color, so hopefully the costume doesn't have that moss green look. And the Arm and leg feather pieces would of enhanced the costume tremendously... but agian if you say it nice then it nice......

okay, well i picked up a couple of my friends mulberry costume today and its absolutely gorgeous. the craftsmanship is great. the materials used on this costume is very rich, there's no cheap braid on this costume. the arm pieces are sold at the camp. i purchased 2 pairs for my friends.

oh so the arm pieces were not part of the costume? they are additional? looks kinda bleh without them..

Fari said...

Ok I am a die hard Triber and I love my costume BUT I think the selling the arm pieces at the mas camp is madness! It was shown with the prototype and now I have to pay extra for it when it was always supposed to be a part of my FL costume....utter nonsense!
@socaholic- LOL! Yes I say so....it's nice as is BUT I never said I wouldn't love to have my extra pieces which, apparently I have to pay for....imagine a section getting monday wear and headpieces and I have to purchase as an extra something that was originally shown with my costume...:S

I agree with Fari, it is absolutely outrageous to advertise the arm pieces on the prototype then turn around and sell it to the masqueraders, after they already paid a pretty penny for the costume. It's pure BS, but guess what, people going to buy it right..yup.. so if you given bull $hit and yuh pay for it with a smile, then that's what yuh gonna always get.

Anyhows, costume looks well made and its very much like the prototype, didn't like it then, still don't now, but that's only cause its not my taste or colour preference.

They seriously selling the arm pieces seperately? Nah! TRIBE, you done fell off man! That is most def not cool. I hope somebody get on bad up there because you're right- you should not have to pay extra for something that was shown with a prototype and advertised as part of a package.

TRIBE, sort it!!!!

But I am really looking forward to seeing Mulberry on the road though. It was one of my choices and it looks pretty wicked!

Tribe is really pulling the BAIT AND SWITCH. That is HORRIBLE that they are making people pay extra for arm pieces. Very dishonest. I could see making arm piece and option people can buy as backline but Frontline it should be automatic. Tribe is really showing their true colors, that is just really greedy.

How much extra do the arm pieces cost ?

trinyspice said...

Can you tell me what color are the Monday shorts for Mulberry??

Carnivalcocoa said...

No words for the extra charge shiite.

Collected Mulberry for a friend on Saturday, looked nice, but the armpieces.... Anyway I took my Osage bra to be exchanged, for the 2nd time! What a horror. Customer service was full. Everyone seem to want a larger bra.I wear 34B and weigh 98lbs, and I tried up to a 36C which could not fit. The girl that was helping me, was pulling like crazy to get it to fit, and she even burst it. She was saying that last year everyone wanted padded bras, this year they got them and everyone has a problem. She finally offered to cut the sponge out of the bra for me, or told me to return next week (this week,) when she will get D cups and up. So I left with a bra with evrything popping out. Don't know how I jumping for a whole day in it. If anybody see a girl in Osage popping out of her costume, please don't mash meh toes as I will be doing a social dance.

Got my wings chicas! Had to go down to cascadia today to pick them up....and they are gorgeous! I didn't have to pay for them, the girl who was helping me organize my costume forgot to hand me them as they were too big to fit in the box ;) So I am all fixed up and Tribe has redeemed themselves in my book! See you on the road dolls ;)

Now i made an observation with this costume...isnt the green supposed to be a lighter green on the bra and on the cloth part???

I saw this yeaterday at the mas camp and i found the green is a bit mossy in colour and it looks wierd because where it folds you are seeing the actual bra underneath it...
