Cosplay! <3

Hello Livejournal, long time no see! Even though I still keep an eye on Pkmncollectors, I don't use this poor thing much anymore, but I'm going to try using it for projects ^_^ need to post more Pokedolls too! <3

My latest project was a cosplay from Disney's Frozen - I've always avoided Disney cosplay due to the characters being so slim and pretty and not really fitting me, but I really love Anna's lively personality! Making the cosplay was hard work, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out - seeing the eyes light up of little kids today made it especially worth the work :)

New Projects!

I don't post here much now outside of communities, but I'm going to star using my LJ for my projects and Collections ^_^

I have started to make plush as a hobby - I'm only just starting out but I find it really fun! My first was BMO, and this is my second and latest, Science from Adventure Time <3 I'm going to try to make a Ditto next!

I hope everyone is well!

~Christmas Card Post 2011!~

Hey everyone - I hope you're well!~

I'm getting sorted for sending out cards a bit earlier this year! ^_^ Please leave a comment with your address if you'd like one from us - I love sending cards! <3

(Comments are Screened!~)

Writer's Block: Hobby Lobby

Ooh - I collect quite a few things!

My main collection is Pokedolls - I currently have one of each normal size doll which has ever been released and some big/small dolls, and Pokedoll merch too! I love them! :D

I also collect Nintendo consoles (I recently added a Virtual Boy to the collection), and G4 My Little Pony brushables  ^_^

It's been a while...

.. hello LJ - I missed posting to you! I will keep this first post brief but will follow it up later ^_^

Life is going okay - albeit rather hectic - the new school year has begun and my new class seem nice which is good :) Andy and I have booked a holiday in Japan this Christmas/New Year which we're really excited about - it'll be our first wedding anniversary on the day we arrive there <3

I've been watched My Little Pony with Andy and we have become fans <3 I've somehow managed to get myself a collection of ponies in the process! I used to collect them as a child, so its inda nice :)

I still love Pokedolls more than ever and adore collecting them - I've been feeling distant from community friends lately and haven't been getting many replies from people when I comment these days - it might be time for me to take a break - I love my collection dearly, and would never part with it - but I don't feel as much at home anymore. It's not anyone's fault, or the community's - just mine for mot being able to keep up with people as much lately  - so I guess It's understandable that people have drifted away from me. 

This week is exciting - we'll be attending the Zelda 25th Anniversary concert in London on Tuesday - so excited for it!~

How has everyone been?~
