I'm not a serious collector at all XD I do have my favorite pokemon, but I only have items of two of them (and I made those items myself >.>). My favorite pokemon are Espeon, Tyranitar, Drifloon, and Bachuru (Bachuru is battling for my top favorite spot, it's just so cute OowoO). And I have a lot of other Pokemon that I really love, but my favorites list would be so long if I included them all. Most of the items I buy, I buy because they're cute. I also like to make plushes of pokemon I wouldn't be able to obtain otherwise (without paying a lot x.x). I'll stop rambling now and post pics so this intro is more interesting.
This was my collection before I got those packages.
The drifloon and the shiny dratini are both made by me. I've also got a bunch of cards I've collected over the years but I don't particularly want to take pictures of all of them, and I don't know if anyone would want to see them all anyway XD
And these are my recent gets :D
Cyndaquil from Crystaltiger1, and mew from a Nintendo World store run by heatrotomftw97 :3
Also, I made a plush recently that I'd like to share. I'd always wanted an espeon, and the official ones are out of my budget unfortunately (someday TTwTT). I commissioned my friend to make one but she never actually did >.> So I decided that I would make one myself :D I'm so pleased with the result, it's the first four-legged pokemon I've ever made. Here she is :D
Her jewel and eyes are both painted safety eyes that I sealed with glaze, so they shouldn't chip. :D
She's made of fleece, and weighted in her legs and tummy with seed beads (because I couldn't find those plastic pellets). From her front paws to back paws, she's 7 inches. Including her tail, she's 10 inches. Including her ears she's roughly five inches tall.
If I've made any mistakes in my post please let me know! :3
