Jeffrey Campbell vs. Cloudberry Lady

I'm just gonna hop in to this mess what's going on about Jeffrey Campbell being accused of plagiarism. There is this Finnish brand called Cloudberry Lady, they make lolita clothes and accessories. They also make shoes and released bat design heels in 2013 as shown below. On the rigt you can see Cloudberry Lady's shoes, on the left Jeffrey Campbell's version.

Please reblog the original tumblr post!
Cloudberry Lady shoes

Cloudberry Lady has two kind of variations from the shoes. Picture above you can see difference of the heel part.
I'm making this post I guess because I've heard some ppl say "what's the big deal, bats are very used theme". Weeeeell maybe, but not like this. You can see how much similarities there is between JC's and CL's shoes.

Let me show some examples with the same idea:

Peak Shane Battier shoe

Iron Fist 'Hellraiser'
Miss Bunny Bat shoes
AND SO ON..... But my point is JC could have made them a LITTLE BIT different rather than as obvious copies.

Also Cloudberry Lady has announced that they could have sold the design to JC if they just would have asked!
If you want the original bat shoes, send an e-mail to . You can choose the color and the material of the shoes and they will be made for your exact shoe size!

Pretty strawberries

On Monday we visited my grandma and grandpa to help them a little. It was really nice weather to burn some branches and old hay. Boy did I smell awful afterward but on the bright side mosquitos didn't bother us at all in the smoke.
But now it's raining. A lot. Yesterday with my father, we managed to paint only a part of the front garden's porch. We were going to continue today but it's too moist air.

Grandma came to mind that they had many new strawberry seedlings and told me to take some with me which made me more than happy.
At my home, we don't have that kind of ground that they would come along by themselves. So I planted them to these baskets. Later I moved them under the roof that they wouldn't drown from the rain.

Hoooo... Soon it's Animecon in Kuopio and Kaoru Mori is there as a Guest of Honor! I really can't wait to see her and get her autograph! I remember when "Emma" was available on the stores, but I was too young to understand how good it was. Nowadays I've collected the Bride's Story series.
See you there! (●⌒∇⌒●)
