(Isn't this banner just so symmetrical?? Another reason why I love to collect these guys! <3 )
Hello everyone! I'm here today to share an update of my current focus in Pokemon collecting: My Espurr/Meowstic collection! My other main and side collections (Snivy, Espeon, Treecko) haven't received many new editions, besides a few small bits and bobs, so this post is focused on my ever-growing psy kitties, plus a few new Pokedoll editions! :3 Let's begin!
Before I go any further, I'd like to show what my shelf looked like in the previous collection update:
I must say, I miss the simplistic way I organized before. That was a time where I was even able to fit my plush into the shelf! Then the great Espurr Wanted! promotion hit. x'D Before that promotion, I didn't even think Espurr/Meowstic would be very popular in the merch world. I was dead wrong, apparently, because my psychic cats have taken the PC by storm! I also saw news of the Meowstic Banpresto coming in October, so I guess the UFO machines have been infected with the kitty love. ^^'
But who said I'm complaining? :D
(I would like to apologize for the bad lighting of these photos- my phone's camera doesn't like my room's lighting in the slightest.)
Here's the male Meowstic wall! Let me just say that those tin badges are probably one of the rarer pieces in my collection. They're a pain in the butt to obtain.
<.< Special thanks to allinia for helping me finally obtain the group badge! I can't wait for the F. Meowstic badge to come in and finish the trio (thank you hebilea), and hopefully no more are made. Because I'm lucky to have found all three!!
This is my mini psy kitty shrine. XD The postcard is beautiful; I can't get over the background's pattern! rahenna was kind enough to send me those two dice as a gift, so I'd like to say THANK YOU once more! ^^
Cookies! Unfortunately, the cookie tin only had one M and F Meowstic, one Pokepuff, and a million Espurr shaped cookies. The Pokepuff one was completely cracked, so I went ahead and ate it. M Meowstic was perfect, but F Meowstic has a huge crack down her ear. :< Oh well. I'm eating all the rest of the Espurrs now, and let me tell you, they're delicious!
I awkwardly only have the Espurr pan sticker, and have been too lazy to buy the Mewostics. So if anyone has them, feel free to offer to sell! ^^
The female side! F. Meowstic had a lot of new flats from the latest TGC set, and even got a deck! There's a few Espurr flats mixed in at the moment, until new flats come into my possession. Then I'll reorganize!
The inside of the soup mug is gorgeous! It's a terrible picture though.
These two don't fit anywhere, so they just chill like this until I find a better way of displaying everything! I will eventually use the phone case. But I'm very content with my current case, so I'm keeping it mint in the meantime!
Now for the plushies from the banner!! :D Here are my lovely girls~ I like how the Pokedoll looks like she's smiling at a certain angle, and frowning at another! xD I wish the PC would start doing a better job on F. Meowstic's fabric, though. The poor girl is always getting felt used on the hands, feet and tail, while M. Meowstic is completely embroidered and minky. :/ There's definitely some gender inequality going on! Even the 1:1 female has this weird fabric on the hands and feet- it's minky, but the ends are very rough. It's so weird. BUT I STILL LOVE HER ANYWAY. <33333
My soul-stealing Espurrs! Seriously, their stares freak out my friends and family sometimes. I naturally love wide eyed creatures, like cats and owls, so Espurr's intense stare is just an extra cuteness factor. The one with the scarlet hair tie is Mikasa, my travel buddy! We will be exploring California together when I leave tomorrow! I hope to make a photo story with her.
Last but not least, my boys! <3 The plush details for the male exceed the female in every way. I mean, just look at the Pokedoll's embroidery! I love to snuggle with the 1:1 male all the time.
So psy kitties aren't the only thing I've been receiving, as crazy as that sounds. xD My father was kind enough to hand-pick my Fennekin at Nintendo World on a business trip! His minky ears are so incredibly soft, I didn't expect to love this guy as much as I do! <3 Minky Lucario was a big want of mine (I'm slowly side collecting Lucario, unintentionally) but thanks to the community, owning one became a reality!
Meet Zeref! COOKIE FOR WHOEVER GETS THE NAME REFERENCE! <3
This was my teaser from my sales post! I also was lucky enough to find a Shadow Lugia Pokedoll! Gale of Darkness is by far my favorite Pokemon game aside from the traditional RP games, so this guy is very special! And my much loved regular Lugia has a friend now! ^^
*stares at Levi*
Finally, here's Buizel! I have a soft spot for the water weasel, and this Pokedoll is a welcomed edition to my collection! Just look at that face. ":<" SO CUTE.
I know this isn't a Pokedoll, but I also received this beautiful Mega Lucario necklace from prnzs! I love it so much, but I need to find a better chain. My skin felt sensitive to the original, but this one is a little too thin.
That was a long post! Hugs and cookies to anyone that attempted to read it all! <3 Now I'm off to California with my travel buddy Mikasa! x'D Thanks for looking, and have a great day/night!
