March - teh best month evar!

So a couple days ago, I went to the post office to pick up the doll formerly known as Volks Lillie. Here she is via cameraphone, my little Lucyboo!

The cutest thing ever! Volks really has the whole stringing thing down. I couldn't believe her poseability when I took her out of her box. She had her little faceguard, soft white cushions she came sandwiched between, and care instructions done in cartoony manga style. If she'd been my first bjd, volks would've ruined every other company for me, ha! She's a very naked Yo at the moment though because I dress I ordered for her hasn't arrived yet. But! The same evening I picked her up, I checked my email to find a shipping notice for my Iplehouse Amy. I just ordered a wig for Amy since the wig I had originally planned to go on her head ended up on my Cinnamoroll Dal. End result:

This is Mia. I really had given up on love this doll and was on the verge of trying to do a faceup, but the heavens opened up and saved her face with this perfect wig! I can't bear to touch her now and she's CJ's new bff. She's also seemed to take a shine to my Another Rabbit, Minerva. I'll introduce you guys to her later, she's quite a character. Back on track though, I really hope the new wig I got suits my Amy. We'll see!

And finally, yesterday I got an email from pullipstyle, and a little note at the bottom said that the Dumbo byuls were in and would be shipping. I'm really excited about her not just because she's a blue elephant, but because she's my first byul and truth be told, I've been wanting one since Eris' release. I love her big ole lips! What an awesome week for dollies!

Woo hoo!

I got my shipping notice for Lucy, the Volks Lillie I ordered!!!! I have an outfit on the way for her too so I'm hoping that will be at my mailbox the same time as my doll. I'm pretty excited about my first Yo! I still haven't solved my lack of camera problem so I don't know when I'll get pics up, at least decent ones. My phone is hardly a good substitute :(

I'm in the process of gettting back into anime right now, mostly to meet new people. It's hard to meet other local doll collectors, so I am trying for the next best thing. So far I've met one nice person online, and I'm hoping to go to a meet at the end of the month to meet several more. Wish me luck on making new friends :)

Final Fantasy XIII is being released tonight. I'm dying to pick it up at midnight, but I'm really nervous about it. The town I live in has some pretty active gangs, and recently a high ranking member of one got shot so inevitably there's going to be some retaliation soon. As bad as I want to play it, I'm thinking it's not a good idea to venture out into town to try to get it. Stupid gangs with their pointless wars and violence.


Am I the only person in the world who stresses out about a new notebook? I've got this adorable notebook that I got from a kawaii stationary dealer. I really love it. The problem is, I have no idea what to use it for. It seems too cute to use it for my online notes(websites, ingame price lists, screennames of people I never want to deal with, etc...the usual), and I'm terrible about keeping journals(take my livejournal for instance ;P). I'm dying to use this thing though. I want to fill it up with something that I'll want to keep around and be happy to open up and look at. I have a story I'm working on, but my thoughts are so scrambled and incohesive about the whole thing that it's much easier to keep track of them on my computer. I already have a ridiculously old one I filled with my favorite quotes as a teenager. Aye yai yai. Any ideas???

Updates on moi

 Hey everyone...so I realize it's been a few months since I last posted. A lot has happened since then.

Blah blah, real lifeCollapse )

On the doll frontCollapse )
I'm feeling pretty happy today! A couple of christmas presents for various people came in today so I've this productive thing going on. I got my Revoltech in the mail and she's so cute! She comes apart really easy which takes some getting used to, but her accessories are what have really sold me on her. She came with a chicken hand puppet. A chicken hand puppet. How incredibly ridiculous and awesome is that!??? Someday when I have a camera again, I will take pics of this silliness(Mark's batteries are dead in his so I can use it at the moment either :3 ) 

I also got mini Basch and mini Penelo figures from Final Fantasy XII which is my personal favorite of the series. This itty bitty Basch is the only toy version of him anywhere which makes so sense because he's just manly video game yumminess incarnate. But I'll take what I can get!

Also....I'm kinda really loving Dal Ende. Just when I think I'm happy with all my Groove/Jun Planning girls....the perfect evil bitch comes along making me question my collection once again. *sigh*

Hooray for anime!

So I mentioned to Yuuki recently that I really ought to sit down and try out One Piece. Last night I had some time to kill while Mark watched sports(bleh) so I popped on over to my favorite movie site and watched the first two episodes. They were really cute! Luffy made me smile and giggle! Of course it was a bit cheesy, but I like cheesy so it worked for me! I don't really care for pink haired navy boy though...he kinda annoyed me. But the other crew members are pretty cool so far.

I also watched the first two episodes of Lucky Star. As cute as One Piece was....I was giggling nonstop at the girl of Lucky Star. Most of it was the inane chatter and antics of teenage girls, but I've had conversations like the ones they had and it cracked me up! I can't wait to watch some more ^_^ 

It was probably pointless to post such a short entry but I wanted Yuuki to know that I watched her show and liked it a lot, and that if any of you are bored you might give Lucky Stars a shot because it's pretty damn cute!

Collecting Crisis

I think I'm having what I would consider to be my midlife crisis of collecting.

My energies are spread out every which way and I can't figure out what I want to do. I've thought a lot about my dolls. I love the pullips and dals that I have, and although many of the new releases are appealing, I don't feel like I have to have any (with the exception of the dumbo byul...B.E.!!!) It's already been pretty obvious that I'd lost my interest in the pullip community a while back, so there's not much to keep me tied into the online fandom for them.

Then there's my adoration for bjds. I have my Tania Perriot(newly named Penelo) and Puki Ruby (soon to be Magpie) on the way. I still really want to have Iple's Amy someday, and maybe one more tiny, either Leeke's Bijou or another puki. But really, I don't feel like I belong to the bjd community either. I've been a member of DOA since 2007 and still haven't made the minimum number of posts needed to gain marketplace privileges if that's any indicator of how active I am there. I've made a few half-hearted attempts to join in the threads, but it feels forced and fake to talk to the people there, so I just can't bring myself to do it.

I've been branching out and just buying little things that catch my eye. Today I paid for a preorder for a Hatsune Miku nendoroid. I have a Fraulein Revoltech Futami Ami on it's way to me. I have plans for several other things that are just too cute to pass up on. My interests are so spread out though, because it's not a devotion to a particular brand or anime or video game. I'm not sure what to do with myself.   Because of all this, I feel out of touch with the friends I've made through doll collecting. Maybe I should bust out a camera and try to take some pics to perk myself up, but that makes me feel...meh...too.

Floundering is lame!

Sorry for the update spam!!!

 But I had my GameStop interview today and it went really well. Her exact words at the end of the interview were, "We're making the calls to let people know they have second interviews this weekend but of course you already have a second interview. We'll call you to schedule it..."


I had her laughing, we're both neat freaks about work, and I'm cute as a button, what's not to love!? haha...but seriously, it went well and I'm really happy right now ^_^

 Just discovered this and I LOVE IT!!! EJO is the man!


I hope we don't have to experience yet another move with DM this year. I wouldn't even bother if all my feedback wasn't there. I miss the good old days when we had one simple forum to use *sniffle*

Also, seems a little distasteful to me to see Scot's name mentioned so much on PS. Do his asslickers not realize that they are in fact on Shana's website??

Here's to douchebaggery!
