The Lost


So I'm very aware that intention in photo taking can be hard to get across, especially if it's a photo story. I took one that I'm hoping doesn't come across as shippy. I'm hoping that it's more ... a kind of ... understanding that conflict is always a part of these kids life, and that's not good, but yeah. Intention is hard to get across and I just wanted to put that out there. I'm hoping the slight down angle in the photo highlights that no, this is not a good thing but yeah.

Trying to get across an emotion or feeling with photography is hard, is my point here, and it's something I'm experimenting with. Sort of.

I'm due out at an art class tonight. More of an art club, really, since the idea is we all do our own thing. Got to even take my own supplies but the hope is it'll help me be more social and help to deal with a lot of the anxiety that I feel to do with that stuff. Which, I've got to be honest, knowing this is relating to my anxiety makes me think of the Sanders Sides videos, and the idea of personify aspects of your personality to help you deal with them better. Or something like that. I can't remember the exact details. Might try doodling my ones, see if it helps me at all.

... Basically intention is a hard thing to deal with and this was a ramble by me on the subject. Hey-ho.

Seeing The Addams Family Musical in Glasgow, next Wednesday (the 11th). I saw it when it was in Edinburgh, but Mum thought it would be nice to go again and we got cheap tickets so we are going. Gonna go for a pre-theatre dinner, too, make a bit of a night of it. We don't have nights often, so that'll be nice.

Had a bit of a plush want a lot lately. Not sure what's been causing that.

... Yeah, can't think of much else to say here. Will leave off there. Hope you're all doing well!

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...?

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!
