Hey everybody!! I meant to do this update MANY months ago, but kept putting it off (especially since i had a huge update post all typed up but i lost it when my computer rebooted unexpectedly and i'll die mad about it), so I'm determined to get through it now before it collapses into a black hole under the force of its own gravity. This one's got a little bit of everything: Laughter! Tears! Schadenfreude over me drastically underestimating the size and weight (and by extension the shipping costs) of a lot I won on Y!J Auctions! I don't want it to be too boring, so I'm going to do my best to organize everything in a way that makes sense. I'll also utilize multiple cuts to make it easier to read, maybe? Off we go!
Before I get into the real meat of this post- that is, a WAY bigger-than-expected box from ZenMarket- I'll go over some of my other gets from the past few months. They're mostly purchased from Y!J, though a few are from the comm and elsewhere.( Collapse )
I probably missed some stuff, but that's it for the smaller packages this time around. Now let's get to the big one. The main event. The one single lot that cost me more in shipping than I have ever paid for one package in my LIFE. I've just been referring to it as the Monster Lot. (I think it won't seem so ridiculous to a lot of members of this community, especially those used to shipping or receiving oversized items, but it's a milestone for me.)( Collapse )
So, moving on from that whirlwind of tchotchkes, I have a pretty exciting first to share, actually-- that is, the first photos I've ever shared of my current Jirachi collection display setup! I've made my fair share of gets posts, but for the first time, I have (a small part of) my collection actually being DISPLAYED in a way I feel happy with. It's a major work in progress, still; I have two more shelves to attach to the wall when I manage to stop procrastinating, and I want to come up with some kind of fabric hammock situation so I can display my plush nicely, but I'm pretty pleased with what I've done so far, regardless.( Collapse )
Well! This has been... an unnecessarily long post, LOL. Thanks for reading!! My next priority is updating my shop, since I am desperately
in need of space, haha. :'V I'm also hoping to continue adding to and improving my display setup. Plush are going to be my biggest challenge-- I want to find a way to display them where they won't be in the way, but also won't get too terribly dusty. Just for the sake of showing them off, though, here's a photo of [most of] my Jirachi plush grouped together!
