Not just a grail! But a dream come true???

So I know many collector's have their own grails! And for a majority of them, those grails are pre-existing items that sit at the tippy top of their lists! But some of us have a sincere wish and desire for something totally out there and very different that we just can't see hitting the market!

But hey, wish upon a star long enough and dreams come true, right? Wana see what brought me tears of joy?

what could it be

Aaah she's perfect!! My beautiful life sized vaporeon plush! (With eevee for good measure!)

She's huge! And when I say life size, I mean life size! Sometimes when I'm away, and unable to work at my computer, she stands in for me~ She's a big help!

This perfect custom baby was made by none other than the beloved Cwinget, also known as http://sewgoods.tumblr.com/ <333

Owning a life sized vappy is something I've dreamed of for awhile. After all, if you can't have the real thing...what's the next best option? :D I'm a picky person, and kept mulling over who would be the best. Of course the choice became very clear very quickly, and I couldn't have chosen a better person!

Cwinget was so quick with progress shots and fantastic when it came to keeping me up to date. I can say for sure I'll be a return customer. ;P

Here are a few more shots, being from Cwinget herself since they do her so much more justice than the ones my sorry lil camera phone can take!

I just can't believe how perfect she is. Her design and pattern is based off of my own little vaporeon character, thus the slight differences from a regular vaporeon. I dunno, what do you think? Think she got her perfect or what?

I take this gal to wherever I have an excuse for. She's gone for a few car rides (with the utmost care and safety precautions!)

She's even hit up our local convention, Metrocon in Tampa, Florida. :D She had lots of pics taken, including one that I must shamelessly share...because this girl was cosplaying a shiny vaporeon and I flipped out! And she flipped out with me! She was so sweet, I wouldn't be surprised if she was a member of the community!

I'm still just bouncing up and down and ALL OVER THE PLACE over having her waiting in my room every day. It just makes me incredibly happy coming home to that cute face. The vappy family has a new, very big family member. I think she fits right in, even if she can't sit atop the shelf with everyone else.

Here's a lil group shot of all the vaporeon goodies I have collected so far, not including flats of course. c:

Yep! I think it's a pretty happy family. I can't believe I waited so long to share with you all! But that's my precious new girl. <3

Hope you like the pics and silly rambling!
