All I can say is they are super cute. I got the red one and really had a hard time deciding what to buy.

I know that. What I'm referring to is that when something sells in Japan for 300 yen it usually is sold here in North America for 3 dollars. At least that has been my experience for the most part with Granzella items that have come to North America. 

 

The new Pareo's for example are 200 yen for the top and 200 for the bottom and here they are selling for 2 dollars top and 2 dollars bottom.

 I get that,but seeing that this is a JP ONLY item you saying it like that is not only irrelevant but misleading to someone who wants to buy it in JP, seeing that's the only place you can buy it.. And I was being nice with the price I put up! It would actually cost even more then the price I put due to the exchange rate and the high price we are stuck paying for a JP PSN Card. The real price would be closer to $5 - $5.50 for the item..

 Just so everyone understands where that price comes from, going buy the current exchange rate3000¥ is $37.5947 and the best price you can get on a JP PSN Card for us online cost $45.99.. That includes the exchange rate and the places mark-up on the card.

I suspect the halloween outfits weil be here in North America at some point. It doesn't sound like the event will sadly.

 

And relative to buying Yen yes it is expensive. I trade for yen so I haven't personally bought a PSN card online in quite some time. I also don't buy much there given most of it comes here now and I prefer not to buy it twice.

So let me get this straight, in order to get this "companion" you have to:
1. Buy the outfit - $3.50

2. Buy the Glittering Sands Personal Space - $6.99

3. Buy Photobooth tickets - .99 (minimum)

 

Now, there was talk about just buying the hair allows you to fly with a friend?, but can you use a friends Glittering sands to access the commerce point and get the table? For those who dont have these items its will cost a total of $10.99 to get one companion, a chair, a table and a candlestick.

 

Granzella's math never adds up (to me) or rather say it adds up to way too much for what you are getting. I know, I know, its well worth it to some of you, im not going to get into this debate AGAIN, but to some of us its not.  Just Saying
