First, the important part of the journal that most people are going to overlook (lol). Before I left on vacation earlier this month, I purchased two Pichu Pokedolls from the community. I just got back and they've both arrived. I thought I had ordered one regular and one spiky eared Pichu Pokedoll. But...they're both spiky. oO" SO! I was wondering if anyone would be willing to trade a regular Pichu Pokedoll for one of my Spiky ones. They're both in mint condition with tags. I would prefer the one I get in return is in the same condition (though I might consider one without tags). The other option is for me to sell one of the plushies and purchase a regular Pichu Pokedoll...but I'd prefer to trade.
I do have trade and sale permission:

And....nowww the less important part of the journal that will probably gather more attention. lmao.
My vacation mentioned above was two weeks in California. Part of which was Comic-Con. My first convention ever! OO" It was crazy and fun. I don't think I'll be going again though. SO MANY LINES! ^^;
I was there on Thursday (dressed as my Pokemon trainer self http://risha.deviantart.com/favourites/#/d3l4adu complete with Shiny Mew - http://risha.deviantart.com/favourites/#/d3l4d5x ) and Friday (dressed as a member of Team Rocket >3). On Thursday, I stepped off the shuttle and was immediately asked for a photo. That was pretty awesome. lol.
I saw some neat Pokemon cosplays there, including: Charizard, a baby Pikachu in a stroller, Flygon, lots of Team Rocket/Misty/Ash, and my fiance saw Jesse and James (JEALOUS!). And I got a photo with the official Pikachu at the Pokemon booth (and the starter balloons).
I was rather disappointed by the Pokemon booth, but I did keep going back and got some stuff - Tepig and Snivy hats, a Pokedex t-shirt, and a Pokemon Black/White tote bag with Reshiram and Zekrom on it.
If anyone attended Comic-Con and has anything else from the booth, I'd love to know what else was available. I'm especially interested in getting a pin (I know they exist...I just kept missing the times they were handed out) and an Oshawott hat to complete the trio.
And....not Comic-Con related, but still Pokemon related, I also went to the Orange County fair. Almost immediately, I saw someone carrying GIANT Pikachu and Zorua plushies. Thus starting the quest for me to attain a Zorua one. I ended up deciding to get a slightly smaller one. The one I got is still big...it's 2.5 feet tall (I think the one I originally saw was about 4 feet). I ended up having to ship mine to myself 'cause it didn't fit in my luggage. lol.
Photo because sorjei insisted:
Giant Zorua with my Jakks Zorua. <3
Also, does anyone know about this site - http://www.japanvideogames.com/ ? I wanted to visit the actual store while I was in California, but the closest we ever got was still an hour away. ^^;
That's all for now,
