Most Adorable Frog Princess


Okay, so this prompted by Mum just asking me if there's anywhere I'd like to go on my birthday, which is two weeks on Monday (14th August). Honestly? There really isn't? I mean, I have a voucher for some money off at the Disney Store, so it'd be nice to wander along and see if there's anything that catches my eye but apart from that... I think I'll end up just maybe watching DVDs. It's become a thing now, on my birthday. Just to marathon something.

But yeah, that made me go to the website, and then to Smyths and... this is just sort of things I might like to get list. It's kind of small.

- Shibajuku Girls (Yoe or Miki. I like their hair clips best.)
- Disney Store Mulan Classic doll (GREEN DRESS!)
- Marvel Legends Miles Morales
- Gorjuss Doll (not sure which because there's a few that catch my eye. Ladybird, Ruby, and Little Violet stand out)
- Wonder Woman: The Art and Making of the Film

Told you it wasn't a long list. (And yet, my Amazon lists are long...) Mulan is the most likely pick up, tbh. I really need to not be out money though, I've got a convention on the 19th and I never really know what I'll find at those. Probably the WW book, now I think on it. Hopefully maybe a Miles figure too; I have Sam and Kamala so I need the last of the Avengers-to-Champions. (Also Hasbro? Can we get a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur two-pack please, I would love.)

Still really amused with people on tumblr calling Worst Witch a Harry Potter rip-off when... no, it's just that the first couple of Harry Potter books played on the same boarding school cliches that the Worst Witch books use all the way through.

Also? I got the cast recording for The Lightning Thief: a Percy Jackson Musical. It's good, people. Fully recommended. They actually understand the story, and I can see why Uncle Rick likes it. I can hope that they may release a video of it, since limited run but... yeah.

Catch you on the flip side.

A Glimpse Into the Future...?


Today has not been the best mental health day. I feel very low, and superfluous, and that all I do is annoy and irritate. Add to that this crushing loneliness and... Yeah, not been the best for my mental health. I think the car being in the garage and knowing that bill's coming doesn't help. Though I did set up my first sales post which should hopefully help to get a little towards covering costs. I'll likely get another one up soon because there are some more figures and two Ai BJDs I'd like to try to sell as well. It's just getting myself motivated to do it.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 came out the other day. I'm not sure if I'll get to see it anytime soon, but I'm hopeful. The brother's birthday is next week, and he's been looking forward to that movie coming out, so he might want to go see it. Then again, he might change his mind and decide not to. Who knows?

I am going to go cuddle under my blanket for a while

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!

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?

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:

  1. Read more... )

Yeah, not exactly sure why I went with that title other than the fact I had my Mum asking me what I would like and I had to explicitly state that I did not want a new laptop. Now, the thing I have been looking at laptops lately, just because I like knowing what's out there, and having a rough idea of what I would go for if I had too. When Mum knows I've been doing stuff like that - no matter what it is - and it's near my birthday or Christmas? Yeah, she tends to go and buy it for me. And I love her to pieces, I really, really do, but she doesn't need to do that ><.

Mind you, I don't actually know what I would like for my birthday, other than to maybe go to a bookstore for a while and just look at books. Don't really have a bookstore at my local town centre, and the selection in the local supermarkets is not the greatest in the world. Except for that rare occasion they actually get something good in, but please note the words 'rare occasion'. I guess some new action figures would be cool, but the 'rents are not exactly happy about the prices you need to pay to get a decent figure. Hell, I'm not happy about the prices you need to pay to get a decent figure. But I am a plastic addict, so I pay them, and now I have an adorable little Figma Sakura Kinomoto standing on the shelf with the other Japanese imported figures. (Superheroes stand elsewhere, but I'm going to change up the layout soon I think. And take cute pictures, if I can.)

I don't know if it's because I'm getting older or because I've spent the past few years on meds, but I'm kind just of 'meh' about the idea of my birthday in general. I know it's coming, and don't get me wrong, there's still that bit of me that's always a young child ridiculously excited about it, but yeah... my general reaction has just sort of been 'meh'. So... I don't know, maybe I'll ask my psychiatrist about it. If he actually shows up to the next appointment. He left before the last one. It's a thing, we've complained and are awaiting an apology. I don't think we'll get it.

SDCC has been interesting for trailer releases the past couple of days. I'm still in the "hm" zone for Dawn of Justice, but find myself pleasantly surprised for Suicide Squad and Deadpool. The former is a surprise, the latter isn't. Because I was just excited they were actually going to make his movie, and then I found out it'd be R-rated (though I'm not sure what the UK rating will be) and it was just a moment of "yessss."

Speaking of conventions, I really need to get my Susan Sto Helit cosplay finished... I was gonna use it for Film and Comic Con Glasgow, but I can see it being pushed back for MCM Scotland...

The answer? Nowhere, really.

Thing is, the whole depression thing has gotten really bad. There's been a lot of tears, and frustration, and way too much paranoia for my liking. So the doctor has completely changed my medication and we're seeing how that does for me. I'm also waiting on news of a hospital visit to find out what's going on with my stomach that it won't keep food in properly without me later rushing to evacuate it. And yes, that is the nicest way I could think of to word that. Sorry if it grossed anyone out, I promise it wasn't intentional.

In happier - or at least fandomy - related news.... Erm, I've been getting back into Digimon. Meaning I've actually be re-getting some old figures and stuff and even have the new Hikari G.E.M MegaHouse figure pre-ordered. I'll have the money together by the time it comes off my account - December is one of those months where you don't really know where half your money is going if you come from a big extended family,  like I do. Also got my presents all wrapped and boxed to be sent off, which is good. Shall do that tomorrow.

In doll related stuff... I don't know how to explain it. I've got a bag of EAH Royals ready to go up to the charity shop (among some other stuff) and, IDK, I just feel a little disillusioned with doll collecting at the moment. I still would really like to get River Styxx when she arrives in the UK, but otherwise... it's an eh. I seem to be looking more to figures again. I can't explain it properly.

Power Rangers Super Megaforce ... another big eh. After all that hype about the cameos, and most of them wouldn't even make a ten minute youtube video. Gokaiger did it better, guys. Clearly the older actors were willing to come back, and I bet most of them wouldn't have minded doing a proper episode to help the new team know the powers better... but what do I know? I don't work for the television networks, I'm just a fan who occasionally writes fic. I think I missed the sign ups for Alpha's Magical Fic Exchange, actually, and I'm kicking myself for that.

That's pretty much all I can think of right now. Hope to update again soon. Wishing you all a good holiday period, if I don't update before then.
