Shopping
Shopping Woody feels oddly appropriate


Long story short: I have items - mostly fandom related - I want to sell, and I'm not sure where to do it but I know I'm not going to use eBay.

To get into a bit more detail... Well, actually the summary kind of explains it all. I think I'll end up using facebook groups for most of it, because I've have some good experiences selling through there and I've been considering these items for a while. I know at least one of them - S.H. Figuarts first edition Card Captor Sakura - should at least get the asking price since it has the awesome box and really I'm only asking what I paid for her in the first place. I have the Figma and I actually like that one better. Keeping the Figuarts around because I like the box seems a little silly when there's people out there who want her who might not be able to get hold of her.

It's the same with the Digimon figures to be honest. I'm also contemplating some Funko Pop sales because I somehow have a lot more of them than I ever expected. And maybe - maybe - my Ai BJDs. They're adorable, an' all, but honestly? I don't really seem to have the rush of 'omg awesome' for them that others have. Maybe they're just not the type for me, IDK, but I'd rather sell them on to a collector who'll enjoy them and give them more attention than I have.

But for now, I just need to work out what I'm doing and settle on prices. And hope that I do manage to make a sale.

Uuuugh

I have spent the whole night being sick. I now feel really cold, and miserable. Bleh.

Bed day for me today, I think.

An Update.

It's Your Turn, Now


This update came a lot faster than I thought it would. Not that much has changed since I last updated, I'm just trying to get myself doing it more so I don't leave this place all dusty again. The only big change since a couple of days ago is that I've managed to get hold of everything I'm getting people for Easter, so that's that by. Otherwise I need to save money because I have, in succession per months - a birthday, a birthday, a first communion, father's day, a birthday, and a 40th wedding anniversary. Yeah, right up till July is going to be quite expensive for me - I'm not even sure if I'll be able to afford a ticket to Glasgow Comic Con, but maybe I'll get lucky.

I should really set up some sales posts. I've got some Digimon Adventure Megahouse figures, and a Figuarts Card Captor Sakura that could be interesting as sales. I waver on the latter though, since her box is designed to look like the Book of Clow. That being said, I have the Figma version of the figure and I much prefer it as a display piece. There's also some Funko POPs I could sell. I have options, is what I'm musing about here.

Anne of Green Gables is getting a Netflix adaptation which starts airing on May 12. It's called Anne and I'm not entirely sure if it will be on Netflix UK. I hope so though. I think The Worst Witch should be on Netflix by that time, and it would be fun to be able to watch both. Not that I have Netflix right now, but I think by the time July is done, I should be able to get it. Well, I hope so anyway.

Seeing that two books of my childhood are having new reboots this year has made me wonder why there aren't dolls or other such merchandise for them. I vaguely remember Anne being available in the When I Read, I Dream series Mattel put out, but I don't actually remember seeing said series here in the UK. As for Mildred Hubble, well, there was never anything for her. So I made my own this year:

Custom: Mildred Hubble


To make her more true to book, I need to make the shirt grey and get her some boots - proper, stompy, can kick your arse boots. Doc Martins were the ones used in the 1998 Granada production so if I could find ones like that for a 21cn Obitsu body, that would be great. I'm quite pleased with her pinafore to be honest. Came out nicer than I thought.

Maybe I could try making my own Anne? Be worth a short. What doll head would make a good base...?

Portrait of a Groot


It has been... a while since I last updated. Sorry about that. I do keep meaning to post sort of general little updates as to life and whatnot, but nothing is really happening that would be interesting enough for you to read and for me to write about. An odd circle of nothingness, that's pretty much my life at the moment. Though I am going to see The Addams Family Musical on the 26th of the month, so that'll be cool.

It's kind of hard to think of things to post about, if I'm honest. Not just because - as I mentioned - nothing much has been happening, but because the few things that have happened have been mostly medical related and I don't really want to go on about that. It's just a thing that keeps happening, and there's been more bad days than good and it's ... yeah, it's just a thing.

I did watch all of the new series of The Worst Witch. It was very cute. I have pre-ordered the DVD, and it will be one of my rare expenses from now till July, I hope. July is the parents' 40th wedding anniversary, which is why I need to be saving money.

Um, that's all I can think of right now. Hopefully I'll have another update soon.

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it! Let's see who has what!

Super Alien Buds!


So I have been rewatching Power Rangers: R.P.M a lot recently, and honestly I don't think 'a lot' begins to explain it. I would have opened this with a Power Rangers related pic, but I don't know if I have a decent one in my flickr-stream at the moment so... Yeah, Super Alien Buds will do till I can take something relevant. What started this re-watch, I hear you ask?

I wanted to introduce a friend. Really, that's it. And I've been rewatching as they've been watching for the very first time and it's been a really fun experience. Though I have had a resurge of immense feels for the Dillon/Summer ship and flying Whale zord scene. That is all. I may even have fic, which amazes me beyond anything because wow, it's been a while.

Beyond there, there's not been much going on in life. I've spent the past week pretty much in bed because I have a sickness bug that may also have the flu tacked on to it. Fun times. Started to do the Christmas shopping and have managed to get most of the family stuff done, just the friend stuff to go. Not sure what I actually want myself... Some books would be cool.

Will hopefully check in again soon, either with an actual update or a Life in the Room type thing. We'll see.

Assassination Classroom Goodies


There's no real reason I haven't posted an update in a while apart from the fact that I'm ... really not good at updating. Yeah, it's an odd little thing. I'm still planning some Life in the Room posts, as well as Life of Action Figures, so hopefully one of them might be up sooner rather than later. It would be nice.

The trackpad on my laptop has stopped working for some reason to which I have no idea why. Well, it wasn't working and now it is. Go figure what makes this thing tick because I have no idea. I also now have a mouse that I bought that I apparently don't need. I'll keep it in case I do.

Health wise... I had a psychological evaluation this week to see if the psychology team would be willing to work with me on sorting out all the anxiety and depression stuff that I have to deal with. I ... think it went well? It's sort of hard to tell, because all I can remember from the thing properly is feeling like I'd gone ten rounds with a pro boxer and was just ready to collapse to the ground. I'll be getting a letter from them sometime soon, so we'll see what happens from there.

Nothing really else happening. I'm kind of a boring person these days. Hope you're all doing well!

I went to Film and Comic Con Glasgow (formerly known as Collectormania Glasgow) yesterday. I had my birthday last week, so the picture above is technically a birthday and con haul because I got money for spending at the convention. I found a lot of good deals. I'm happy with that.

Yotsuba and Corpse Talk


At the beginning of the month, I went to Glasgow Comic Con and discovered Corpse Talk. I highly recommend it to any fans of Horrible Histories, it's got the same kind of dark humour plus awesome historical content that helps to teach you things. Always the best.

There's an interesting habit in dolldom - pairing off. For whatever reason, they always seem better in couples than alone or threes or more. I don't really know the why behind this, I just know that if I look over, suddenly there'll be a new couple around or a new set of best friends and it's just better not to blink really. 'Course this doesn't really work for all of them. Like Merida

werepuppyblack: (The Addams Family)
When people (dolls) arrive in the room, I never really know how things are going to go with the group. Especially considering the very differing personalities and the amount of weapons that seem to be friggin' everywhere. The last bit wouldn't be a problem is certain people hadn't just put in an order with me for some more, because apparently there aren't enough pointy things around here. But yeah, new arrivals. Sometimes they can be a thing.

And then sometimes the reactions can just be... weird.

: Grandfather sent you, didn't he?

: Haven't seen the bugger in years. Didn't know his spawn had spawned. Where is he anyway?

: Not here. Kind of the appeal of it, really. What are you doing here, Spike?

The New Friend


I think the title explains what sort of week it's been for me so far. I genuinely had no clue as to my days and only got told about 10 minutes ago that it was, in fact, Thursday. I've spent most of the time trying to clear out a huge desk and it's finally finished. With any luck we'll be able to get rid of it quick smart, and I can have my new bookcase up in my room. Which I bought at the beginning of the year. Yeaaaah, takes a while to get stuff done, especially when you've got no, or next to no motivation.

It's Called a Hustle, Sweetheart


I rewatch the 2009 Syfy miniseries Alice over the past week and, well, I really do love that re-imagining of the Alice in Wonderland story. It doesn't try to be the original, but it does pay homage to it. Plus it's one of the only versions I know that actually use John Tenniel's Jabberwock design - and the only version that seems to remember that Jabberwocky is the name of the poem, and not the beast.

I've also been watching an old kid's show. It's Australian, from 2001, and it's called Escape of the Artful Dodger. Serious deviations from Dickens' canon aside? It's ... actually really good. Like, surprisingly so, considering that a lot of kid's shows from around that time period were not exactly the greatest. But we've got decent acting coupled with a decent plot. Plus just general hilarity. That it's a deliberate period piece has made it age well and I'm really enjoying myself watching this. Even enough to order the DVD. Yeah, there was a DVD, released in Germany. Go figure. That should arrive by 7th April going by this thing so that'll be nice.

Life's sort of been, well, eh to tell you the truth. I've been feeling like crap because my doctor is getting on about the weight despite the fact that I'm eating healthily and exercising and nothing is happening. This feeling crap leads me to push myself too hard and frankly my legs have only recently stopped hurting from all of that, and now my stomach is punishing me too. Vicious cycle that will continue because of course it will, my life does not let me have moments of happy. No wonder I'm finding such enjoyment in a kid's show. It's a lot easier to deal with.

Ah well. Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.

Lion Hierarchy


So... I don't actually know where to start. How about that both my psychiatrist and doctor have decided that monitoring my weight is now a needed thing? I'll admit I'm not the weight I probably should be, but to have both of them treat me like I didn't know anything I was talking about was...
I go on a bit )

I've been feeling so bleh lately, that I just want to go and buy myself something for at least that brief moment of happy feeling you get. I've got my eye on a couple of Charlie Bears, and at least two Steiff bears. I can't even afford one Steiff bear! I'm hoping this want feeling will die down a bit, but it's very active right now and I can't really deal with it.

Mostly though, I'm just tired. Might nap before the groceries arrive. Thinking of doing a little 'Life of Action Figures' skit thing later. We'll see.

Willy Wonka (Things I Want)
I don't think I've ever had such a big want from just seeing a promotional picture of a bear before...


So, this is Toy Fair 2016 week, or at least it was this weekend, and there was a lot of stuff released. I'm interested in the Disney Descendants Villain Kids Signature Dolls, some Marvel Legends, Ghostbusters, some of the Star Wars Black Series Line, and - of course - the retro style clothed Bill & Ted action figures by NECA. Out of all of this? I'm most likely only to find the Disney things because the distribution on that actually hits the UK. But enough about that.

It's been kind of hit and miss lately, in terms of mood and what not. While I am actually getting some sleep, it's been happened at weird times. I might sleep all night one night, and then the next couple of nights get maybe two or three hours at most. I'm still feeling quite down, but with it I've noticed the development of some interesting tactile issues. Or, rather, I'm just finding some feelings too uncomfortable for me. Like a brush on my head - I'm trying to find a soft brush to fix that one - and sometimes even the feel of the shower on my head feels... wrong. I'm going to mention to my GP, and see what that's all about.

Galavant finished. It was an epic ending, and I'm really hoping they get one more surprise renewal. Considering the amount of UK famous people they had in the second series, I'm surprised it's yet to air here in the UK - it really would do well over here. I saw the Deadpool movie with the Dad and the Brother and we all enjoyed it. Some jokes are a little bit eh, but context does help a lot, and it's... weirdly refreshing to see that someone who can be labelled as a victim also makes really shitty jokes as well. I know that sounds odd the way I've phrased it, but I honestly can't think of a better way to explain it all.

I've read 7 out of 50 books for this year so far. Most of these have been comics, I'm not going to lie, but having the Kindle has also been pretty helpful for getting my reading done. I have pre-ordered Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because there is no way I'm ever getting tickets for that show... those shows? I don't quite understand the set up all that well. I'm hoping the book will help, even if it is just the libretto of the show.

Really into Charlie Bears when it comes to collecting habits at the moment. It ties into the whole how I'm feeling things, they're nice and soft and that's just... nice. Though I went to look at the Steiff bears and, well, see that picture up there? Yeah, he's out of my price range, but I will find a way to save up and own him. Come with me, and you'll be, in a world of pure imagination...

Hope everyone is doing well!

Sometimes We Watch Movies


So I've been taking a lot of photos lately. It's something to do. I've pretty much started this year on a down, and it's not going away yet because there just seems to be a lot of stressful things that keep happening. Thus, I take photos of things to try to calm me down. So far, it's about 50/50 on whether it's working or not. The new Batman v Superman figures are out in the UK, just the blister pack ones as far as I can tell, so I'm thinking about getting Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Currently selling stuff off anyway, because... eh.

I don't really fell happy or sad, if that makes any sense. It's just a general sort of 'meh' feelings. A numbness, I guess, would be the best way to describe it. I feel like I want to cry sometimes, but then I feel angry with myself about that. It's just... yeah. Had an inflamed ear this past week and while the pain from that is pretty much gone, I still feel a bit off-balance. I'm down at the doctor's next week, so if I'm still having the issues, I'll say.

Been watching Galavant, and enjoying the new season. Spreading the hashtags: #ISuperBelieveinTadCooper, #WeSuperBelieveinGalavant, #RenewGalavant. It's not a groundbreaking show, but it's a show that seems to make a lot of people happy, and I think we need more of that. Happy is important, and a lot of shows tend to fling that out the window in favour of being serious. Give me the meta humour, show, and I'll sing along with you. Musicals get me so worked up.

Um, not much else I can think to say to be honest... Hoping you're all doing well and that 2016 has gotten off to a better start for you than it has for me. Speak again soon!
werepuppyblack: (The Addams Family)
And I've done nothing to my NaNo. I just can't get into it this year, which is a pity. I had a great idea, and yet this while month has really just been a case of 'uuuugh' when it comes to anything. It probably doesn't help that the weather's gotten really bad as of late, and I tend to affected by the change in weather. Seriously, it's not stopped raining the past couple of days. It's not a bad thing, just... annoying, if I'm honest.

And... yeah, that's really been it this month. I've been getting my Christmas shopping done, but that's more out of just wanting it out of my way than anything else. I've been asked if there's anything I would like and I really have no answer to give to that question. Seriously, my mind has been blank.

Otherwise, it's been an average sort of month. Good days and bad. Got a bit of a cold that's making me tired more than anything. Hope you're all doing well!
werepuppyblack: (Darkwing Duck)
Yes, once again I decided to sign up to NaNoWriMo. I'm not doing too badly for a first day, but I feel rather sluggish with my words. I can't really explain it except using the idea of heavy limbs trying to swim further but they're too heavy to make it work. It's... a thing, certainly. I do like my idea this time round, which is just writing short stories about this character and binding them together - no big arc of the book. More of a "here's the life of [x]. Enjoy!" I'd like to reach at least 30,000 words. I don't think I've got any real chance of making the big target, but maybe I could meet my own.

Tomorrow - 2nd Nov for those keeping count - I get my new phone from my contract. They let me change phones every two years, and I'm pretty much needing a new one now. Mine isn't really ringing out except to prove me wrong it would seem. That does mean if I've missed a call or text from you I'm sorry! My new phone is going to be a Microsoft Lumia 535, so I'm on the lookout for cool cases for it.

Fandom wise... I finally managed to finish the first anime series of Assassination Classroom, and I'm so glad I did! This was reccommended by a plurk friend and honestly, it's been the type of anime I've needed to remind me of why I like the overall genre. I do keep seeing Karma as the child of Yankumi and Shin from Gokusen though... I'm keeping up with the manga, and Anime Limited is set to release the show on DVD in the UK - Anime Limited is a Glasgow based company, so we'll be able to keep quite up to date with information!

Doctor Who has been providing me with good entertainment these past few Saturday nights, especially the ones when my little cousin joins me on Skype to watch-along. He's very vocal with his reactions, even when he's reading. He's making his way through the A Song of Ice and Fire series right now, and seems to have heavy preferences for the Stark. I have taught my young Padawan well.

Um... not too sure what else to say? I've got the psychiatrist and doctor both this week, so that'll be a ton of fun. If anyone liked it - I'm hoping I might have a new Life of Action Figures planned out for later this week. Maybe. If people would want to see it again. I'm thinking of tagging those posts with fandoms featured, so people know. I don't know though.

7 weeks till Giftmas. 7 weeks to attempt to get gifts for not just friends and close family, but little cousins under the age of 10 who don't seem to understand that a gift card is a present, it's just a present that means you get to choose what it is you get. And most of whom are still obsessed with Frozen.

... Can I go back to the Skeleton Wars?
werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)
So... turns out having a lot of figures around means I tend to walk in on the weirdest things happening. Well, not weirdest, but it's certainly not what I expected to see, I'll admit that much. I have got to get these guys some hobbies...

I'm not going to lie, I feel a bit awkward about doing this, but there's a need for some money and since it happens to free up space, I'm just going to list items here that I have for all. There's BJD, Disney, Ever After High, Monster High, Action Figures... that sort of thing. It'll all be under the cut, though, so it doesn't take up any space. Please just make an offer, remember I live in the UK, and ask if you'd like to see pictures! So, here we go:
