Okay!!! So I was stranded at the boyfriend's going absolutely nuts until I got home and finally got to see the package full of amazing that Raven sent me!! My first swap couldn't have been more perfect!!
First thing, the box came decorated by our ever so beloved GeneCo! It made my mother excited to the point of leaving a day late for her vacation just so she could be home when I opened it!
Inside, there was a lovely scroll with a delicate black wire holder nestled in Z-Blue leopard print! It was really swet and It's currently in a place of honor next to all of my theater director's gifts. In fact, the entire box of goodies was wrapped in all sorts of amazing Rainbow-ness that matched me and my hair so perfectly!! And that was before I even unwrapped
it!! Fair warning.... I will be hyper bouncy for most of this post. Apologies to all for being a sugared up faegirl.
Now then it must be stated these were all handwrapped in epic bright animal print paper and tucked into a pretty bright bag!! I couldn't get over how cool it all looked! Plus, it matches my jammie pants!! (Oh, and Sorry if any of the pics suck, as I was too giddy to keep still let alone hold a camera! The boyfriend had to help!)
The first thing I unwrapped were these GORGEOUS Z-Blue wire heart and skull necklaces! They look fantastic on and match my bubblegoth-tasticness! I love the fine detail on the wire and the sparkly beads so much! They are the perfect length and my mother couldn't get over how well they pop against my hair!
Next surprise (specifically because I love rainbows!!!) was this adorable beaded rainbow star bracelet that fits like a dream!! I was prancing around my living room in it and my unicorn hat for awhile! (those pictures cost extra... ^w^) I especially love how asymmetrical it is with the giant orange star!! It makes it look like so much sugar candy!!
My next awesome was this Z-Blue Zydrate wire script necklace! FaeCyn and I were mutually drooling over a design of a written out Zydrate necklace oh so long ago but could never figure out how to do it! I would feel bad about having one, but it's far too pretty to let faux modesty get in the way!
(Besides, it matches my awesome earrings!!)
The next awesome surprise has it's home on my Shilo bag already (and I am such a happy shadowcaster for it) was this old school block necklace that says 'ZYDRATE[coolredsparklebead]ANATOMY', 'LEGAL[skullbeadbluewireheart]ASSASSIN', and 'SCALPEL[heartbead]SLUT' with neat blue beads on either end! It NEEDED to live on my bag, despite it being a bracelet proper! And I've even been stopped already and had people check it out AND RECOGNIZE IT!!!!!
Now this prezzie was a super awesome threefer: Three wire rings that couldn't be more SeventeenShilo if they got up and emulated Joan Jett!! The firs is another Z-Blue hear/bead epicness that fits perfectly on my ring finger. I love how it matches all my other shinies. The other is a cute Z-Blue star ring that again fits perfect, this time on my lil finger nestled all adorable and perfectly next to the first! The final is a purple and Z-Blue duel heart ring combo that seemed so teenage 'I <3 me some Graverobber' it's not even funny. And surprise, like the awesome she is it fits like a dream on my other
Theme of all of this BTW, was how much my partner ROCKED!!
Next, and it matches both of our morbid brains, was this nifty Z-Blue beaded black wire bracelet that looks like it's covered in blood spray. And we both agree, it's totally post-'Didn't Know I Loved You So Much'!!I cannot get over how well this fits and the hand detail in making the clasp and jumpring/headpinny combo nifty!
Now next in the epic, there was this stunning silver bracelet with Z-Blue crystals! It matches all of my other pretties, fits perfect (I can't get over that, since jewelry never fits me well!) and looks like it glows in the light!! I was flabbergasted when I opened it, and nearly cried at how pretty it was...
And then, came the actual tears.
This seems like such a silly thing to cry over, but Raven made me buttons. A Repo Man, REPO logo that I thought were so cool. There was also a Mag button (which was my love's role in our Shadowcast), a Shilo button (which was my role...) and then... the tearjerker. Our shadowcast's logo (The Repo!ssessed)
Our cast broke up some time ago, painfully and it means so much to have something to remind me of when we were all friends and still lived near each other. This meant the WORLD
to me and I have never, ever was given something so incredible in my life. And so, they also live on my Shilo Army Bag.
Assorted pictures, come in many flavors! Me with my cat, Salem and everything out before me as well as the bottom of the box, and it was still full of awesome! YAY PINK!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!! You are a goddess and amazing and I am sending all of my love down to Tennessee in the box I'll be shipping out tomorrow! <3
Oh, and I'm designing up a new club outfit to match! Shilo's going to the Mardi Gras party at our fave hotspot!
