My 2017 SSS - Best EVER! ^_^

Hello friends! I hope you all had amazing Easters if you celebrate that, and have been enjoying your Secret Spring Swaps!
I've been trying to comment on a lot of them, but I'll get around to commenting on more! ^_^
I actually got mine a little while ago but I've been very sick, had my electricity go out etc. @_@

But boooooy is it just the most amazing SSS!
This is my 4th SSS but my FIRST SSS in Europe, with an international gifter!
I literally SQUEALED out loud when I opened it! Grails I never thought I'd own and a CUSTOM?! I've never felt so lucky! ^__^
So a big thanks to the AMAZING gifter thedaftlynx who just went above and beyond! :')
I've always admired their work, and their gorgeous art and now I'm the VERY proud owner of both!!

20170407_173502.jpg

So what lies within these numbered gifts with adorable little tales tape??

Who are these cute little sneak peek heads?!





First was this adorable note with thedaftlynx 's signature piggy at the bottom! ^_^


Already here I felt so special and really excited by the little "treasure hunt" style package! *O*

I accidentally opened #2 first because it was stuck to the note and I was too excited but it didn't spoil anything! :D




THE MOST GORGEOUS LAPRAS IN ALL THE LAND! AHHHHH! Seriously I would've been happy with just this amazing water color painting! T__T <33
It's so special to me, and now resides in this frame which I had, and feel goes really well with Lapras' colors??
Art makes me so happy! *O*




These were what I was supposed to open first! OMGGGG they are SO good. I shared them with my family and they agree, they are BETTER than both Smarties and M&Ms! SO much more creamy and just delicious! I love candy from other countries too so this was super special!


...Now onto pack #3!



AHHHHHHH!!! WHAAAAAAT?!? O___O !!
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!

This guy has been sooooo elusive! The 2007 Japanese Gengar Pokedoll!! I've never ever been able to find it for a decent price, so even though it was on my wants list I kind of just chalked it up to "meh, I'll never get it".
He's SO beautiful, fluffy and really just gorgeous. :')
Now what to name him? .... How about Siplick? ;D


As if it could get ANY better, I opened package #4, and found out that it could. T___T <33



AHHHHHHH!!! I couldn't EVEN believe my eyes. I always kind of hoped I'd get an SSS who was willing and able to make a gorgeous, minky custom plush but never got my hopes up! *O*
Opening pack #4 was like a DREAM come true! Look how gorgeous?! Look how PERFECT!! He's just my favorite little guy! I love the bat-ears and the colors. There's something so nostalgic and sweet about every little bit of him!
Seriously, thank you so much
thedaftlynx!

thedaftlynx also sent the amazing drawing that they made the plush from, it's literally just as cute, omg. :'D



AND. THE. GIFTS. DIDN'T. EVEN. STOP. HERE.

A few days later, the other part of the gift showed up!
... and HOLY COW.



I. HAVE. NO. WORDS. T___T !!! <333
I was already at about a 110% on the happiness scale when I received the first package, and now one of my biggest Gengar grails of all time?!
The Pokemon Time series is one of my faorites. I adore the cartoony styles, the cute, unique faces and it just makes me so happy. I FINALLY got the phone strap by the graces of Arceus last summer and didn't even hope for this little guy! He's always like $50-80 any sometimes over $100 online so I just gave up on him.
... AND THEN
thedaftlynx gifted me him! :')
It makes him all the more special to me! He's just as perfect as I had always hoped and I'm just blown away!

Here are all the gifts together, package one and two!







Thank you so much Siplick, and the mods who paired them up with me, I couldn't be more grateful to have gotten such an AMAZING gifter! :')

Lastly but not at all least!

I received a delightful care package from the amazing hebilea ! *O*
Didn't except this at all but it brought me to tears when I saw it in my mail! I was really sick and this came just when I needed it. T__T





THANK YOU SO MUCH SWEETIE! AHHHH! I love everything! She sent an ADORABLE Pikachu shirt which is really classy and subtle? *O*
She also sent amazingly tasty gummies! Loving international candy so much, JOJO is a new fave! ;P
She also sent some things I had been wanting from her sales but couldn't afford. :'O
So sweet. I am just floored!
Thank you so much dear girl, you're an absolutely angel, ILY!!





I LOVE THE WAY THIS FITS OMG! I can't wait until I can wear it this summer! :';)

WANTS!

I figured I should make a wants list with the SSS coming up! :D

Customs: I ~love~ customs but would prefer the following:
Plush, drawings, house items (mugs, towels etc) high quality sculptures, acrylic charms or enamel pins!
I'm not a huge fan of perler or badges.
This is just to specify if my gifter is curious! :)

Giant Custom Grail Get! :3

Hello fellow comm members!
Today I have something I literally feared never would arrive but against all odds (those odds are Richmond CA's horrible post office - no really, they have 1,5 stars on Yelp o_o) arrived at my door after 2 weeks of being stuck in limbo land, the other day making it basically one of the best days in recent history! :D

Here's a little sneak peak, WHO'S THAT POKEMON?
(I think you guys can guess who it is if you know who my favorite 'mon is! :'D)


IMG_8131-edit

Can you guess it yet?
Does this horrible who's-that-Pokemon-ms-paint-job help? :'D


IMG_8134-edit



Here he is guys!
My VERY first custom Mr.Mime plush!
I've had some amigurumi and a little mini felt guy made but THIS is my first minky plush! This is why I said grail because I've wanted a cuddly minky Mr.Mime since forever! (He's almost ENTIRELY made of minky) cuddly and not to mention HE'S 30 INCHES TALL!
The lovely AMAZING seller: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CosmicCritterCrafts said he'd be about 17 inches so when he popped out of the box, I was UTTERLY surprised! :'D
It's been a task trying to find a place to put him. xD I mea he's almost 1:1!
The craziest part? His price. This would normally cost at LEAST $200 or so but let's just say he was 1/5 the price SHIPPED! @__@

Anyways I better actually show this "little" guy off!

CRAZY EYES OF HAPPINESS. (No really those are just crazy eyes, what the heck? xD)
IMG_8131

Ok, I'm 5'4" and look at how huge he is!! :'D

B-aNCR8CIAAae5h

Here he is with his only official plush counterpart & Mime jr Pokedoll!
If the above picture wasn't size reference enough! :D


IMG_8168


Here's the picture Cosmic Critter Crafts provided. As you can see, size reference was a bit confusing. I mean he could be Godzilla or on top of a very tiny house. Haha. But honestly I'm STOKED he's so huge!!

icm_fullxfull.53996663_51vjycii8zk00080k4gc

*Squeal* What can I say? I just love him! He truly exceeded my expectations! :')
If you guys are looking for insanely low prices AND amazing quality - not to mention shortest turnaround ever, then you have to check out Cosmic Critter Crafts!
I could not be happier, this guy is the final piece for me to do an overdue 1 year collection post! :3
(Now I just have to find to time to set everything up! :'D)

I'll have a video with him up in a week or so which I'll post so you guys can see how he moves if you wish! ^__^

Thanks for watching/reading/looking! <3
Hey everyone! It's been a little while since my last post, but I am thrilled to say it's my birthday, and it has already been a SUPER one. :D
not ONLY did I get a giant package from pikachux with 12 blister packs, and AMAZING extra b-day goodies, including a mime jr and friends notebook from the Pokemon Center, AND a Blastoise ex, but I also got a lovely b-day card from classypersian . :D I really am so grateful, you guys are aweosme. ^_^ My day is already sooo special.

I also have a little Lapras story starring some gets from midnitekitten17 . Not b-day gifts, but a long time comin'. ;P

Hope you guys are doing well, and enjoy seein mah burfday gets. :D

Custom Jewelry sales! ^_^

https://www.etsy.com/listing/163657502/pokemon-necklaces-cyndaquil-trading-card?ref=shop_home_active_1&ga_search_query=cyndaquilHey comm! I hope you guys are having a lovely weekend! The sun is shining here, as I sit indoors with a sprained ankle! :'D
The irony.
Anyhoo, I gave my SSS a custom Bulbasaur necklace from my Etsy store, and there seemed to be a bit of interest. Therefore I figured why not share my jewelry with the comm? ^_^ There are always so many AMAZING customs here, it's unreal! I would be glad to do a trade as well if you make custom plush, or other art. Partial trades are also welcome!
This way I can lower prices (also due to the fact that I won't need to add Etsy fees), and give the comm an opportunity to get some customs that can be worn. <3  Also, I do custom orders. I've done literally more of less the entire Pokedex, so if you don't see a Pokemon you love, it can be made! :D I made jewelry from upcycled kids and other figures, trading cards, Pokedex pictures, anime episode clips and more!

Link to my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GlitzCouture?ref=listing-shop-header-item-count You'll find I also have a lot of non-pokemon items. Please feel free to combine with any of my sales items here!

An older promotional vid I did. ^_^

Spring Swap! - Acidmimi

Weeee! I got my Secret Spring Swap (say that 10 times fast!) my Spring Swap turned out to be the lovely acidmimi and may I say, this is by far the most amazing spring swap I couldv'e gotten. :'3
SO much creativity, and mass quantities of cuteness. :D

A wild package appeared! (Even the bubble mailer's adorable -ermahgerd)
Mimey and Marceline the mime jr helped open the package. <3
IMG_4274-edit

CUT FOR GOODIES!Collapse )

Mimey Get + Cool Old Find!

So I couldn't believe I found this guy for such a good price. I honestly had been lovin' on him from afar for quite some time, and never expected to get him, let alone in pretty amazing condition. :')
See many lovin' pics in the cut!

Hyper Beam Dat Cut!Collapse )


Also, here's something fun I found! At first I thought "oh weird Pokemon Tupperware" and then after getting home and checking around on Ebay, I saw one go for up to $39.99! o_o
Unfortunately mine doesn't have the original Bulbasaur lid plug-thingy and it does have some scratches on the image. But I thought it was a fun and strange  collaboration  and interesting part of Poke-history! :D




Side note I still have a lot of items for sale, and will be adding more within the next few days! ^_^

Grail get!

Hey comm! This was just the best thing ever to come home to, a grail I've wanted to oooh so long, and then finally got with help from the wonderful colocho_robotto !
I also have a mini update with another plush friend in the group! <3

Heras and Crossys a plenty! :')
The newest member is the Banpresto chibi, in the middle, I have yet to find a name. My first Heracross (American bendy - RIGHT) is Hera (creative, I know, lol) but I don't know what the Japanese PakiPaki one should be named, or the newbie! >.<

hera

Here's another pic of him with his pretty tag! :D

IMG_3500-edit

The Japanese one is a newbie too, I was lucky enough to win on Ebay recently for 40$, and Hera I got for 26$! I feel like those were both steals for these guys! :')
colocho_robotto gave me SUCH a good deal on the newbie, who is absolutely MWT! <3

By the way, for those who don't know the different between the American and Japanese Heracross twins (I didn't know until recently), here are the differences! :D

First off, I feel like the "fur" is a bit darker, and feels "denser" on the Japanese version. It could just be the level of "loved" the American one is, not sure. :'D

But the clear differences are the wings!

Japanese: Brown "under-wing" with thin iridescent pieces of fabric for the "Second layer of wings". He also has a strip of Velcro on his tush.
American: Iridescent fabric sewed onto wings, no "second layer of wings" on this guy, nor Velcro.

Also the tush tags are different, obviously.

IMG_3501

One last family photo shot! The twins welcome their little brother! <3
Say cheese!
I couldn't be happier. <3 :')

IMG_3499-edit

Sylveeeee!

So I recently purchased this amazing Sylveon plush for an insanely good price from the lovely entirelycliched, I just COULDN'T love her more! :')
Also I was searching SMJ and found an deliciously fabulous Meiji card. (SO SHINY <3)
It also has the most ADORABLE backside. (Backside? Lol)

Lastly I made a shiny Sylveon necklace which I am quite proud of personally. It's just so extremely Fairy Kei, and what better for a FAIRY type? Haha. ^__^

I also have the Sylveon figure from the Sylveon box in the background, which is just a little common guy, but done SO well!

Here's the "group photo" - Details at the bottom! :D

IMG_3344-edit


Sylvee adorned with her shiny counterpart! ;D

IMG_3342-edit
IMG_3343-edit
