Back to reality

Vacations always seem so very short. I took a peek at my work email, and I kind of know what to expect when I get back to the office – hundreds of emails, paperwork to follow up with, and the same old 9 to 5 doldrums. /all the sad emoticons in the world.

I did a bit of damage in sunny California, and I wanted to share my Anime Expo and California haul (dropped mad dollars at the Japanese dollar store, lol).

Anime Expo 2015 haul

I purchased these goods from Anime Expo 2015.  From left to right, we have 2 rement blind boxes, a Madoka Kaname Yukata version Nendoroid, a few Danboards, and a Jetoy Choo Choo coloring book! The Danbos and the Nendo are pretty freaking enchanting. If I can find some nendos of anime characters I really like, I may pick up a few more. So far, my nendoroid wishlist includes:

Kuma from Persona

Hozuki from Hozuki no Reiatsu

I’m so on the fence about the nendoroid’s interchangeable pieces. I like how each figure comes with extra parts to change the facial expression and the arms and accessories… but they also seem a bit inconvenient in that I worry about losing the tiny pieces.

My nendoroid!

Madoka Majika Yukata Version Nendoroid

The danboards are perfect the way they are. Never change, Danbo.

And here is the rest of my haul!

Daiso and Miscellaneous haul

Everything but the crochet book and the coloring book in the back were purchased from Daiso (… several Daisos). ^^ Not in any particular order, but the haul includes: 2 Elly chan school girl fashion packs, 4 skeins of yarn, some kitty stationary, some leatherworking kits, beads, false lashes that I will use for blythe lashes, crochet hooks, a cat pencil case, and some key chain making goods.

Photo story – A day at the anime convention

Got dressed for a big day out… In costume and very excited!  Got to the convention and there are wall to wall people!  Made my way to the sets for some cool photo ops.  And made some new friends :3    And bought some furniture for home!  Goodbye Anime Expo!  

Have Blythe, Will Travel

I am currently on the opposite side of the country! I will be traversing Anime Expo, Rosaline in hand. And I may even drop everything and take impromptu photos of her standing in the middle of the convention center, surrounded by con goers (if I’m brave enough). I dressed Rosaline up for the occasion ^^ – I actually spent the better part of last night crocheting her a hat and a top. The top, I might add, came out surprisingly well! I will share photos in later posts!  I also wanted to share the state of Rosaline’s pull strings! I will be replacing that peachy skin tone colored pull ring with one I ordered from Twiggy Twiggy, but other than that, her strings are fully charmed. She’s Rosaline. She’s a crystal gem. And she’ll always save the day.
