Wait, what? Noooo....

So back a few months I had decided to go ahead and pre-order Momohime (http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIG-MOE-1726&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_keywords%3Dmomohime%24pagemax%3D100%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1) It seemed like everyone enjoyed her, and she did appeal to me. Since Link had got pushed back to late November - when she was supposed to be re-released, I went ahead and combined Link with Momohime to reduce shipping.

I received a notice this week that she will be delayed...not just a month or two, nooo...a whole year! What?! She's not supposed to be released until winter 2013! -_-;

Yaaay.... *sigh*

(at least I get Link)

Edit: Apparently when I saw the words "Winter 2013" I was assuming the worst -_-;; looks like she will be out in Jan...   read

Monthly Megapixel: eBookin'

I had an idea that I was thinking about doing, but it involved going outside…yeah, that didn’t happen. I also did a book theme and I couldn’t settle on one picture, so you get three. And let’s see who knows what book she’s started reading :)

Monthly Megapixel: Want a Snack?

This set-up took me longer than I planned…hence the late post. All the following pictures are of the same scene, the first one is of the big chaos and the other ones are zoomed in upon selected figures. I could come up with captions for most of them, but I’m leaving them out and letting you think of them this time. Now (after I have made the huge mess), it’s time to pack them all up for my move back to the states!

On to the fun!

I really need to stop putting these off until that last minute…though I do come up with some great ideas when I do (well, at least I think so XD)

Monthly Megapixel: Miku's Valentine





































~

I had way to much fun with the captions…even though adding captions was a pain and took soooooo long to do. I think I’m getting better at it though!

And here’s a link to all my (unedited) photos for this month: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/1003/tears4dragons/figures/megapixelcontests/feb2012/   read

Monthly Megapixel: Santa Watch Party

Miku: Check over there!
Sanji: I don't know where he would be.
Random Dog: Woof!
Nami: I can't find Santa anywhere!



Skeleton: Santa won't come unless your alseep...have some booze to help you sleep!
Everyone: Sure, why not...can't hurt...PARTY!!! (sorry about the lame game piece acting as a booze bottle...lack of props in the hotel room)



Drools, groans, giggles, and heaving all around.




~Next Day~

Everyone: Yay, Santa came! Presents all around!

Santa Saturday

I had a hard time getting the hat to work with me (it won in the end), but I think it came out cute anyway.

Monthly Megapixel: Hiring Teachers/Teacher Rejects

Well, better late than never....at least that's what I like to think (some cases anyway).

Monthly Megapixel: Pool Party

Well, I had taken these photos quite awhile ago before I came back to China. I wanted to mess with the photos to make them look like they came from a scrapbook...but sadly I kept putting it off. So you get plain pictures with a few captions, and I did narrow my selection down quite a bit -_-;; I took several on different days, one day was bright direct sunlight - which was something to photograph - but I ended up having a lot of fun with the water.

Nami, Kurumu, Mizore, Moka, Momo, Yukari, and Tenten decided to invade Barbie's pool...she was out of town visiting G.I. Joe.

























Yukari: Can I have some ice cream?
Nami: No.
Pirate Ducky: *Now’s my chance while she’s distracted.*



Yukari: How about now?
Nami: No!
Pirate Ducky: *I can almost taste it.*





Moka: I can’t help that I’m so photogenic.

Tears4dragons Here

Guess it’s about time to do an intro post. I originally found Tomopop by a link a friend sent me, I forget exactly what was linked, but I then started browsing through the site and enjoyed what I found. A site all about figures and toys? I’m in! …well sorta. I lost the link my friend gave me and wasn’t able to remember the site name or find it. As luck had it, I found Tomo again a few months later and bookmarked it. I lurked and decided to go ahead and sign up…seeing as I wanted to enter the Monthly Megapixel contests.

A little about me: I’m 29 (though I don’t act like it, hehee) and I have been teaching elementary aged kids for the past 5 years now. I am temporarily living and teaching in China. I just finished teaching summer school today (!) and am flying back Stateside for vacation on Monday (will be returning to China at the end of August – so sad I won’t be able to play with Support ver Miku until maybe Christmas, or worse, next year). I had ordered S.H. Figuarts Sanji and Nami and can’t wait to get home to play with them (oh yeah, and see my friends and family)! I’ve been collecting figures since I’ve been able to go to conventions and learned how to order stuff online back in college…starting in 2001? give or take a year. When I first started, I was really picky about what I wanted in a figure, like I only collected my absolute favorites (then again, I barely had any money to “waste”). Since holding a stable job and having an income, I have been able to buy more (not that I really need more).

I have an account on myfigurecollection here.

A question before I hit ‘save changes.’ When reading a review, what do you look for? What specifics should be included (i.e name, company)? What pictures do you like to see? I’ve seen reviews made up different ways, and I was curious what everyone thought.   read
