Finally have pics ready!! <3 First off the whole group shot of all my wonderful items! Get ready to wist. <333
As you can see Amber totally spoiled me!! *___* <33333333333 She had each item all wrapped up in bright tissue paper and tied inside the pretty blue and green crocheted bag at the top of the pic. <3 It's totally me, made in my fav colors. I shall be using it when I go to the store now. <3 It was like Christmas though. Every time I opened something I pounced on her and hugged her because I was so excited and loving my stuff! <33333333 haha I'm a huggy person anyways but if you bring me presents! I luffs you more. <3 :'D
Now for some close ups! <3
My fantastically amazing new plushies!! *w* On the left we have a Lita/Makoto Dotee! I LOVE dotee's and have been wanting to start collecting them so I was insanely happy to receive this, my very first one! I was surprised this was the first she had ever made too. <3 It's sooooo cute in person! As you can see it's modeled after when Lita was baking cookies in the Sailor Moon SuperS Black Dream Hole movie. <3333 And check out the hair! Perfect!! <3 It's just so sweet! I have her hanging on my wall already. <3 *dances* I can't wait until she starts the ATC & Dotee swap! This has really inspired me. *w* <3 On the right side is of course Sailor Mercury. <3333 This was Amber's own pattern and she sits so well! I love the style of it and all the cute details. Specially the blushy cheeks. And! Her boots slide on and off! *w* These are my top 2 fav scouts btw!
Close up face shot! Check out the cheeks! <3333 >w< Loooove~~~~
Lately I've been majorly into the Chibi-Usa & Helios couple so she made me not 1 but 2 ATC!!! <3 These were also a first for Amber.
She did such a great job on them. She really captured their elegance beautifully. <3 I have them sitting on my Sailor Moon shelf right now. I just can't bring myself to stick them in my ATC binder yet.
And for more Chibi-Usa & Helios love I have a brand new cell charm!! Isn't it so pretty! I LOOOOVE the images she used for this. *w* She hand drew these and coloured them on shrinky-dinks. <3 I was really happy to get this as my previous cell charm had broken off not long ago.
Here is a close up of my fantabulous neck cowel that she made me!! PERFECT for the colder weather and sooooo soft. Love the fabric she used. *w* I'm going to be wearing it tomorrow when I go out. <3 *dances* And check out all the Sailor Mercury symbols she hand embroidered on there! Chain stitch, cross stitch, back stitch.... and a bunch of other styles. Sadly my camera couldn't seem to capture the stitching well.
I'm sad about that as it's really pretty in person! Above the cowel you can see a close up shot of my wonderful new shopping bag.
<3 Love love love the colors. <333
And here we have a gorgeous Sailor Mercury necklace with an extra Sailor Jupiter charm. I think I'll put the Jupiter one on a pretty green ribbon I have. <3 I just adore both of these! I've worn Sailor Mercury almost every day now. *w* <3 It's just so pretty. The little silver part it dangles from has these cute star cut outs and each bead is different! And SPARKLES! <3 *dies* I love anything that glitters, sparkles or shines. I swear I'm like a bird or something, always collecting shiny bits for my nest! LOL <3 Also drawn and coloured on shrinky-dinks.
I saved my favorite item for last! This amazing loaded charm bracelet. *___* I've been wanting a charm bracelet like this for a long time and when I opened it I could have died I was so happy! It's just so incredibly beautiful! All the beads are just perfect and she made the best shrinky-dink charms to go with it! Shiny beads, my fav colours, my fav Senshi! What's not to love?! Annnnd!!! Wait until you see the close ups! She made a wicked cool steam-punk themed transformation brooch!! *__* <3333333 We had both been talking about how cool it would be to mix steam-punk and Sailor Moon, I was excited to see that other people had thought of that combo as well.
Check out the steam-punk locket!!! <3333333 LOVE it. I would love to have a real big one to display with my Sailor Moon dolls one day. <3 I think it would look really cool with them. It really makes me think of Tuxedo Masks pocket watch from the manga. <33333 And we have Mercury's transformation wand, and the cutest chibi Mercury ever along with her planet symbol!
<333333333 Check out all the pretty beads too. *w* hehehe <3 I kept shaking it around and making the bracelet jingle jingle on my wrist. <3 I probably look like a total spaz in the video she was taking of us. LOL XD My bracelet makes me smile every time I look at it. <3
And here is the close up of the other half of the bracelet! <333333333333 Totally adorable Jupiter too! <3 I just love that chibi style. *w* Kweeeeeeeeee~~~~~~ happy happy happy. <3 You see the big round teal coloured bead? It's so smooth! I love to just twirl it round and around. *is easily amused*
Sailor Moon has always been special to me as it's how I've met my dearest friends and now it's once again brought me another close friend, not to mention a fellow Craftster! And she's local! :'D I'm so happy that I joined this swap and I got the bestest and most sweetest partner ever. <3 She totally nailed my tastes and completely spoiled me! Thanks again for everything Amber! I can't wait until we can hang out again. <3 ^_________________^ *hugs* BTW, I'm usually shy and quiet too for the first 3 or so times meeting someone new! We're very much alike and we were both very hyper that day. <333 Sailor Moon! Once again bridging the shy quiet peoples gaps in conversation!
Since your video camera was being mean about downloading the video do you want me to post the pics I had taken of what I made you? :3 ((I prolly look all crazy on the video btw. I kept catching myself staring at the lense like O___O!!! with this mild panic of who do I look at?! LOL XD ))
