Just a few hours to go until Irregular Choice Care Bears are a go. Is everyone excited?
When and where?
12 noon today at Irregular Choice but also at the list of stores below if you scroll down.
So what’s going to happen?
Usually Irregular Choice do a little guide of how the launch will work but I’ve not seen one this time so here’s my experience from previous years:
Be on the website 30 minutes before
Be signed in
Have anything else you want to order already in your basket
Shortly before the launch the website with change and then you’ll be placed randomly into a virtual queue. The screen will count down and tell you how long you have left to wait and then when it’s your time you’ll get redirected to the site. You usually have 20 minutes or so to shop but it will tell you on the screen.
Irregular Choice usually put photos of the entire launch on their facebook page with prices either just before or dead on launch time.
Independents will be first come first served and it may be useful to check them whilst waiting for the official site but do note that they have far less items so sell out quicker and some items, such as the scarf, will be exclusive so you can only get it direct from the official site.
Rockamilly have done this very useful guide which is worth a read.
Daisy Mae have also done some blog posts for today with sizing advice.
The Independents we know that are sell Care Bears are
Daisy Mae Boutique (Klarna)
But it’s also worth checking
I’ll add any more that i find out.
What if it sells out
Usually most stuff that sells out can be found. Check the independants as well as the Offical site and set up alerts on the official site. You can also set up an ebay alert for Care Bears as quite a few of the independants sell on there too. Eclectic sell on Ebay and Amazon so check both.
Facebook groups like Irregular Choice buy, sell and worship sometimes set up a post to link buyers searching for something specific to stockists.
So what will be for sale?
At the moment we know the following:
The boots appear to be a similar style to Ghost House but with a clear heel similar to what we’ve seen on some Poetic Licence shoes. The bag is around the same size as the Lapin bag but looks like it has quite a small zip and opening. Irregular Choice tights are amazing quality. I own a lot and love them. The scarf is an Irregular Choice exclusive so you have to buy it from the official website. Then finally we have the Marmite moon pair. I’m going to write another post going over all of these in more detail.
We also have these previews which i think are flats, trainers, some type of bag and a character heel of course. There are spoilers around for some of these should you be dying to know but please don’t spoil it for others.
