    Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Group Order
    So I've been thinking about making a personal order from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for a while, but I was always held back by the $12 shipping to Canada for up to 20 items, considering that I would never personally be able to order enough items to get the best possible value out of shipping. So I am opening the floor to you, my friends, to join me in this delicious smelling odyssey.

    I would prefer for this Lab order to consist only of people local to me (or soon to be local again - I'm looking at you kali_kali) here in Ottawa, but exceptions will be made for my good and dear friends elsewhere if they would really want to participate.

    Ideally I would like this order to have no more than 20 items, but if people are willing to pay additional for shipping - the price rises to $21 for over 20 items - I would be willing to consider it.

    Freebies from the Lab will be split as equitably as possible.

    For those of you new to Bpal (I know I gave a couple of you some to try) samples are called 'Imp's ears' or 'Imps' for short. They are sold individually for $4 or in a pack of 6 for $22. A good way to find out what you might like to try is to use the search engine to search for notes that you might like such as rose, lavender, lilac, lime, lemon, citrus, frankincense, peony, musk - you get the idea - and then picking out the perfumes whose description is most intriguing.

    Some scents aren't available in imp form, only in full 5ml bottles. Others are only available in pre-made imp packs which are more expensive due to the cost of the essential oils within. Don't worry, if you pick one of those I will let you know.

    There is no final date on when the order will take place - probably when 20 items are reached and/or everyone who has ordered something has paid for it. I also would like to wait because I have a few imps coming in from trades that might end up changing my order. If you need anything urgently, let me know and we can always order earlier.

    According to the Lab:

    One 5ml = 1 item
    Twelve imps = 1 item

    Here is the list of items so far:

    1) Bottle of Villain for me

    2) Bottle of Envy for me

    3) Imp pack for oni_neko (Snake oil, Pontarlier, Bliss, Peitho, Vixen, Hecate); Imp pack for kali_kali (Miskatonic University, Tezcatlipoca, Schrodinger's Cat, How Doth the Little Crocodile, Queen of Sheba, Hellcat)

    4) Bottle of Gluttony for kali_kali

    kali_kali: $43.50
    oni_neko: $26.00

    Feedback here.
    Wishlist here

    All of the below items will also be considered for swapping, should you have anything of interest. My wishlist is in my signature if you want ideas.

    Regarding the condition of my imps: My imps are all at least half full, most are full. Most of my labels are also in good condition, albeit not completely flat. Please ask if you are concerned about a particular item. Most of my imps have also come to me from another person. I have tried to test everything cleanly, but I cannot guarantee that nothing has been done to them by their previous owners.

    Shipping will be calculated on an individual basis, as this is the first time I've mailed bpal. Everything will be packed like Fort Knox. I will charge you the actual shipping amount, no overcharges. Bear in mind that I am shipping from Canada so it will cost a bit more. Prices are in the $2-$4 range for a small bubble envelope of imps to the US.

    Updates will be near constant as I am still testing a bunch of imps and deciding whether to keep them or not. Possibly on the way within the next several days: The Ragged Wood, Gemini 07, Bijoux Y'ha-nthlei, Virgo, Ides of March 2010, Lord Ruthven 2009, Agony of Loss,  Oblivion, Intrigue, Mandrake, Nocnitsa, Arkham.

    Please purchase at least $10 before shipping.

    For Sale
    Please note that all items come from a smoke-free home, but my home is NOT pet free. All my items are clean, but there is always a possibility that some cat hair may find its way onto them.

    I try to be as accurate as possible with my descriptions, so please check those for colour rather than relying on what you see on the monitor.

    Prices do not include shipping, which is from Canada. When it comes to shipping costs, unless otherwise specified I will use the cheapest available shipping in order to save you money. If you require your items by a specific date, please say so and I will get you quotes for faster shipping methods.

    As for payment, paypal is preferred, but I will accept money orders provided they are international and cashable in Canada. No cheques. Regardless of method, I'm afraid your items cannot be mailed until payment is in my hands.

    I will be out of town until Sunday, July 25th, so if you don't hear back from me immediately, that is why.

    Corsets and corset tops



    Brand new green velvet overbust corset + g string XL NWT

    This corset is brand new with tags. It is a value corset, but very pretty for the small amount of money it costs. The bones are plastic and you can't lace yourself down to lose inches, but it will pull you in somewhat to enhance your silhouette, and the green velvet is plush and soft. The matching g-string it comes with isn't at all impressive, more of an afterthought, really, but it is a nice touch for those who like that sort of thing.

    When I bought this I chose the wrong size. The seller recommended the following measurements:

    Bust (inches): 38 - 39 (C)
    Cup size: C
    Waist: 32 - 34
    Hip: 40 - 44

    I was within those measurements, with the exception of having a DD cup, and the corset was so big that it was quite loose. So I would say that if you wanted the properly snug fit your measurements should actually be greater than those stated above. There is a decent sized modesty panel in the back in case there is a gap in lacing.

    Bust (inches): 35 - 37 (C)
    Cup size: C
    Waist: 29 - 32
    Hip: 36 - 39

    I was at the upper end of those measurements, with the exception of having a DD cup, and the corset fit me like a glove, but was not tight enough to pull me in a bit. So I would say that if you wanted the properly snug fit your measurements should actually be greater than those stated above. There is a decent sized modesty panel in the back in case there is a gap in lacing.

    Smart Set Special Collection burgundy corset top, Medium

    Size: Medium (Tag says Size 11)
    Chest: 36"
    Waist: 36"
    Length: 16" (shoulder to empire waist)
    Condition: Very good. A little wrinkly from storage.

    This is a neat little lace up front corset style top that I've had in my wardrobe for some time, and it still has plenty of enjoyment left in it. The only reason I am getting rid of it now is because I scaled down my wardrobe and I no longer wear this colour as often as I used to.

    The fabric is a really pretty Rayon/Acetate floral damask brocade, and the high empire/Juliet waist lets you create a number of interesting fashion looks from medieval, to Renaissance, Regency, Victorian, witchy, hippy, gypsy and just plain romantic. It would look great over a drippy sleeved top to make a pirate wench look, or layered over a plain black or burgundy dress to give it a high waisted Regency or 15th Century-inspired look. If you think you have a nice tummy and some cool belly jewellery to show off, you could even wear it by itself.

    It laces up with five pairs of grommets in front, but there is a modesty panel sewn beneath to avoid unsightly lacing gape, and the actual closure is a well concealed zipper in the back, which is barely noticeable.

    Arianne pale blue rose pattern brocade princess seamed corset top, Medium

    Chest: 32" unstretched, 38" stretched
    Waist: 28" unstretched, 32" stretched
    Length: 18" from shoulder strap to waist
    Condition: Very good. This was only worn 3 or 4 times. I can't find any flaws apart from a couple of small picks in the fabric, but they're hardly noticeable in my opinion.

    This is a very pretty pale blue corset/bodice style top with princess seams and lovely lace trim around the square-ish neckline. To me it evokes an almost 18th century aesthetic, reminiscent of Marie Antoinette. The fabric is a beautiful poly spandex with pretty a pretty rose pattern in white, which sadly my digital camera was unable to pick up. This is a great top to wear by itself with a long, witchy skirt, or over another long sleeved top in the cooler months for a bodice look.

    Dresses


    Tristan & Iseut charcoal grey flocked Regency/Jane Austen empire waist dress, Size 10

    Bust: 36"
    Waist: Free
    Hip: Free
    Length: 53" from shoulder to hem

    This dress is amazing! It features a soft, grey overdress with a texture that is a cross between soft flannel and velvet, embossed with tiny vines. The dress is open from below the bust down, and is worn with a black sleeveless underdress that also looks very nice on its own. I paid $100 for this and never did anything beyond trying it on.

    I'm quite curvy, and normally don't go for empire waists, but the slim line cut of this dress actually made it fairly flattering.

    Dennis Goldsmith stretch velvet and crepe Regency/Jane Austen style empire waist mourning dress, Size M

    Bust: 32" Unstretched, 42" stretched
    Waist: Free
    Hip: Free
    Length: 53" from shoulder to hem

    This dress was actually used as a mourning dress, albeit not in Regency times. It is very comfortable and suitable for languishing. The bodice is a soft stretch spandex velvet, and the skirt is a softly flowing drapey fabric in two layers. I'm quite curvy, and normally don't go for empire waists, but I was actually fairly pleased with how I looked in this dress.

    Shirts and tops


    Dynamite pewter grey stretch crushed velvet top, Large

    This top is so soft and comfortable, not to mention pretty, too. It is a beautiful shimmering grey with a slit neckline and elbow length sleeves.

    Bust: 34" unstretched, 44" stretched

    Fairweather teal blue and bronze tie dye stretch velvet bell sleeve top, Medium

    This beautifully romantic top has only been worn two or three times. The rich jewel tones of deepest teal and old bronze are so lush, complimenting the pretty plunge neckline, and elbow length sleeves with delicate bell cuffs.

    Bust: 32" unstretched, 39" stretched

    Sets


    Weekenders teal blue slim skirt and top, Medium(?)

    This super comfy skirt and top match each other perfectly (even though it may not look that way in the photos) and are a lovely shade of teal, definitely in the blue rather than green range of the colour.

    What the sizes are exactly I can't say because the tags have been cut out, but the measurements are as follows:

    Skirt waist: 26" unstretched, 36" stretched
    Skirt hip: 40" unstretched, 48" stretched
    Skirt length: 35"

    Top bust: 39" unstretched, 50" stretched
    Top length: 25"

    Lingerie


    Queen's brand lightly padded jacquard demi bras size 42DD(?) NWT

    Colours available: White

    These are really pretty molded satin bras with a lovely jacquard pattern and straps that can be removed and replaced with ones of another colour, or arranged into a crisscross pattern.

    The white one has an inside tag that says 36DDD, but the seller assured me it was a mistake. The black one has no inside size tag.

    I bought these bras on eBay since they were listed in my size on but they turned out to be way too big for me in spite of this. I'm a 36DD and these bras swim on me, they are too large in the cup, and too loose in the chest. The bands measure 28" unstretched, and 42" stretched to maximum, so I think they would be good for someone curvier than me.

    Because of the difficulty establishing the true size, I'm letting these brand new bras go for $6 each.

    Jennifer Intimates pink lace lightly padded demi bra 38DD(?) NWT

    This is a gorgeous hot pink bra with lightly molded cups and very thin padding. The colour is solid pink with a lovely pink lace overlay.

    The story of this bra is the same as the ones above: tags say it is a 36DD, but it does not fit me properly, being too big in both cup and band size, so I suspect the true size is larger.

    The band measures 28" unstretched and 37" fully stretched.

    Because of the difficulty establishing the true size, I'm letting this brand new bra go for $6.

    Jennifer Intimates nude beige demi bra 40DD(?) NWT

    These is a very nice beige molded cup bra with straps that can be removed and replaced with ones of another colour, or arranged into a crisscross pattern.

    The story of this bra is the same as the ones above: tags say it is a 36DD, but it does not fit me properly, being too big in both cup and band size, so I suspect the true size is larger.

    The band measures 31" unstretched and 38" fully stretched.

    Because of the difficulty establishing the true size, I'm letting this brand new bra go for $6.

    Triumph brand black satin and lace bra underwire bra, 34 D

    This is a very pretty unpadded black bra, size 34 D, with lovely lace trim and lace inserts. Very feminine and sexy. The only sign of wear is on the inner size tag, but no one will see that anyway.

    Black lightly padded soft cup underwire bra

    This is a very pretty black bra, size 38 C with lovely lace trim,
    lace inserts, and very lightly padded cups. The padding is not enough to increase bust size, it seems to be there more to give support. Very feminine and sexy. The only sign of wear is on the inner size tag, but no one will see that anyway.
