While visiting a card shop I hadn't been to in quite some time, I saw this hanging on the wall. Obviously it's really old and outdated, and it was covered in dust in a corner of the store no one ever really hung around. I decided to ask the shop owner if he'd consider selling the poster. Instead, he took it off the wall and gave it to me! XD So I was happy about that. It's now on my wall. (The Ho-oh kid in the picture is for size reference - this is a pretty big poster).
Official Mewtwo wallet! Yay.
Awesomesauce Mewtwo watch! Part of my quest to have an entire wardrobe of wearable Mewtwo things. c: glanthtoo contacted me on Facebook to let me know she had an extra, as well as a spare...well, the next thing I'm gonna post ^^. We made a deal and it arrived a few days later. I can't decide if I wanna actually wear this thing, or keep it in the box. ._.
Having lost one of these suckers in an auction a few months back, I'm really happy to have one. It's, uh, not quite as detailed as I'd hoped, but it's rare, and it's cool-looking, and that's all that really matters. c:
I got me a Bootporeon! :3 (Swampert kid and Riptwo for size reference). I loved Vaporeon as a child. One of my fondest Pokemon-related memories is of my 10th birthday, where my Mom surprised me with the figure I had wanted more than any other - a Vaporeon Tomy. c: I was greatly saddened when I joined the comm and saw how needlessly expensive Vaporeon plushes were, so, after seeing several comm members rave about this strange, custom bootleg, I decided to pick one up.
I don't regret it! She's amazingly soft and huggable, and has become my cuddle buddy at night. :D She arrived, of course, with a few loose threads here and there, and a mysterious, small brown stain on her head (T_T) that looks like dirt or something. It's not highly noticeable, and took me about a week to even notice. I'm scared to clean it off, but will try eventually XD Other than that, I love this Vaporeon soo much. ^.^
Now, onto the (short) unboxing photostory of the item I was most excited for, starring Plushgross and Fiona~
Plushgross: YES, I FINALLY GET THE SPOTLIGHT! TIME TO CUT OPEN THIS GLORIOUS BOX AND SHOW THAT METAGROSS DESERVES JUST AS MUCH ATTENTION HERE AS MEWTWO GETS.
Plushgross: DAMN IT, WHY WON'T YOU CUT
???: Still using scissors, I see? And kiddie scissors, at that.
Fiona: We need to get rid of these, and get a real cutting tool. I know where Marissa keeps her secret weapon...
Fiona: Ah, here we go! ...Ouch, sharp.
Plushgross: ARE YOU CRAZY? WE CAN'T USE MARISSA'S BLACK JOKER - SHE'LL KILL US! ...OR WE'LL KILL OURSELVES, CONSIDERING WE DON'T HAVE ANY KNIFE-WIELDING EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER.
Fiona: I've used it before. How do you think I keep all the maletwos from overstepping their boundaries?
Plushgross: For once, I'm glad I don't live on the shelf.
Fiona: *cut cut cut*
Plushgross: Holy karp, you're a pro.
Plushgross: I'm scared.
*a few minutes later*
Fiona: Ah, here we go! Ooh, it matches my fur so nicely. I wonder what it could be?
Plushgross: How am I balancing like this
Fiona: Help me, you buffoon!
Metagross: I'm helping, calm down.
Fiona: At last - I, Fiona, have freed the sword from its packing peanut prison!
Metagross: ...I helped.
Fiona: Quiet, you.
Metagross: What on earth is this thing? Maybe if I push this button here...
Plushgross: Woah! What just happened?!
Fiona: Ah, I see now! It's an umbrella. And not just any umbrella - an umbrella with my beautiful face plastered on it! What a magnificent accessory!
Yup, that's exactly what you probably guessed it was the moment you saw it - a Mewtwo umbrella! :D I don't own an umbrella, so how perfectly convenient (though I'm not sure I want to use it...dilemma o__o).
Coincidentally, the umbrella was made by the mysterious Berkshire Fashions, a company that also made this funny looking Mewtwo plush. It's special edition, so maybe it's rare? I've only seen it twice before. And it's mint with all its tags, totally brand new condition. :D It's totally awesome and was well worth the $60-ish I paid for it. Thanks so much to nasija for middlepersoning it to me! :)
Here's me, derpin' it up with the new 'Two. XD As you can see, it's more than capable of shielding a full-grown adult from the rain, which makes it even more awesomely cool.
Gonna wrap this little post up with a quick want - might anyone have this bag for sale? I saw it on Y!J and am hoping to avoid all the fees and buy it from someone here if possible. :3 I've been totally sucked in by Aria Meloetta (psychic babbies<3). Thanks in advance ^^
