Alrighty. After a night of traipsing around behind our youth group as they went trick or treating, I can now post the pictures of the great swap SKooKuM sent us.
So, the first thing I saw when I opened the box was this amazingness:
It's exactly one of the things I've been lusting after! Twilight's balloon lights up and everything! And the little Twilight in front there was... somewhere else in the package I don't remember. She looks like she might be from McDonalds. But I'm not complaining, because now I have ANOTHER Twilight toy. Two Twilights! Yes!
Then I remembered I was supposed to be taking pictures. So here's my box, with the balloon toy removed:
The first little box-within-the-box I opened contained these adorable little bottle pendants! One themed for Spike, Twilight, and Princess Celestia. Who told you I like bottles? If I did, I don't remember.
Next, I picked out a box with Matt's name on it, so I handed it to him to open. Out popped Fluttershy! An adorable, amazing, posable Fluttershy! Matt exclaimed "Fluttershy!" and after a moment of looking it over promptly said: "Yay." in his best Fluttershy voice.
Oh, wait! I forgot about these! I might have seen these first or second. I don't remember. It was in that beginning rush before I remembered to take pictures. And adorable journal and bag with Twilight on them! I love the quote, too! Where on earth did you find these? We don't have anything like that around where we live. Love!
So, has everyone figured out that I like Twilight yet? She's basically me as a pony. Which is why I squeeled when I opened another little box and found this:
My very own little Twilight doll like Fluttershy! (Except mine is bigger! Yes!) Her eyes are all sparkily, and her hair is done up perfect! I love her so much! And she came with a little hair piece.
The last little box revealed some cute shrinky-dink jewelry! Derpy, Twilight, Spike, and cupcakes/muffins! I hope the picture does them justice.
And you'd think that was all, but no, the package got even more awesome. Yet another package with Matt's name on it, which he opened up to find a letter.
And what was under that letter? But an AWESOME painting of the character Professor Fandango as a pony! One of my husband's best friend's characters! And so well done! He loves it!
And last, but not least, yet another amazing painting (which I think the scanner ate the colors of):
Thanks so much swap partner!
