Off-Comm Gift Exchange - Part 2

Hi guys! With my first gift exchange just about wrapped up, I'd like to offer one more chance for some summer fun :) All gifts from the first one should be shipped within the next few days, unless other arrangements have been made between partners. I know most of you have shipped your gifts, but make sure to do it by Tuesday if you still haven't! Also remember to leave feedback for each other when your gifts arrive <3

If you missed the first gift exchange, this is your chance to participate! If you participated in the first one you can still participate in this one, but other members get priority.

And here is the info, plus a link to the first gift exchange as reference: http://pkmncollectors.livejournal.com/22344652.html

This is open to about ten members, first come first served. There's a tiny bit of waive room here, but only for an additional one or two people if there is a lot of interest. Out of those ten(ish) members, I'm looking to take on two or three partners. You may be denied entry for a number of reasons (bad feedback, bad past experiences, etc).

***Before I pair others up, I will be pairing people up with myself. If you comment on my post, I will assume that you are agreeing to partake in a trade with me. Once I reach my desired number of partners, I will start referring and pairing other members with each other. If I don't choose you as my partner, please don't be offended!***

So, here's how it works!

-Like SSS, you will fill out a survey that will give your gifter an idea of what to get you.
-Unlike SSS, you can take on a max of four partners! Make sure to know your limit, because the minimum worth of each package must be 25, not including shipping.
-When you post your survey, please make sure to include how many partners you want.
-If you are paired up with a custom artist, you are agreeing to receive their own work. For example if you get paired with me, you are agreeing that perler sprites will be part of your gift. This means that you shouldn't put custom art notes in your "don't want" section. Again, if your partner makes them, you are agreeing to receive them. The only exception is if you make the custom yourself.
-Because of problems last year, this year there is a due date for shipping: September 10th. Your gift must be out by then! You can message your partner for their address once the gift is ready :)
-If you do not post your survey within 24 hours after claiming a slot you will be dropped from the exchange. I can't pair people if I don't have this info.
-Also guys, pay attention to people's surveys! This should go without saying but read carefully and don't get them random stuff they don't want.
-This exchange is off-comm, so you can't leave feedback or contact the mods if anything goes wrong.

-And this is important- a note about worth. You MUST use the actual worth of an item when calculating it into your gift. You CANNOT put in two Pikachu TOMY figures and pretend that they count as 25$ in value, just because you overpriced them in your sales post. The worth of an item is the average of how much it currently sells for, not a price you made up.

Alright, that should sum up the rules :)

Survey Template is under the cut!

SurveyCollapse )

Important Note: The comm no longer allows gift exchanges so I cannot advertise this there.
If you are interested in participating, please message your friends so we can get more people! Furthermore, if you commented on the one that got deleted I still have your survey's in my email. You don't have to repost your survey's again, just remind me to post them for you.


Thanks for your interest!

4th Year Anniversary and Reintro <3

Hi everyone! I've recently passed my fourth year anniversary here on the comm, so I thought I'd do a little reinto, with a look at my collection <3

So first off all, I have been collecting since 2005. I started when I was in primary school- I'm a little bit hazy on what exactly started my passion, but I do remember getting my first three Pokemon cards from a kid on the bus home from school. (If I remember correctly, the cards were a Phanpy, Donphan, and Abra lol). Soon after that, my dad took my to Toys R Us where I got my very first Pokemon - Pikachu! And that was the start of the long road of collecting.

Here's a look at my collection from 2006!

collection start.jpg

And here's a little piece of what it looks like now in 2016 (you can double click to enlarge):

collection1.jpg

collection3.jpgcollection2.jpg


One thing about my current collection is that I really don't have room to display it all. I like a neat and clean room, so about 60% of my plush are under my bed in boxes, and around 50% of my figures are in a shelf in my closet :( Once I have my own place, I will make sure everything is displayed. I've also actually stopped collecting plush (with a few exceptions here and there) so at least this problem won't be getting any larger lol.

I've also found pictures from different times in my life with me and my Pokemon- it's funny seeing evidence of how I've grown with them always being a part of my life. If you'd like to see, I have some pics under the cut c:

Pokemon Through the AgesCollapse )

I've made tons of amazing friends over my four years here on the comm, but for those of you who don't know me, here are some basic facts (both Pokemon themed and real life) c:

Fun Facts about LatiasCollapse )

Lastly I'd just like to say thank you to all the mods for making the comm a safe, friendly, and organized place, and a thank you to all my friends, buyers, and sellers who have made my stay on the comm absolutely fantastic. Love you guys!

Collection Updates!

These are my side collections! If you see tape reflecting from the camera/light it's because a good number of these are hanging up :)
Here's a bit about my collecting style~ I've never really had side collections until recently. Before that, I'd buy basically whatever catches my eye. However, as of late I've purchased almost all of the official plush/figures I want, aside from some misc plush and grails. I love commissioning customs, so I figured I might as well choose specific Pokemon to commission since I obtained plush/figures of all my favorite Pokemon by this point. So these side collections are basically now being used to commission specific plush x3 I have way more "potential" side collections, for example I have 61 Pikachu's around, but since I don't really want more merch of him I'm not gonna post him here. I also don't collect these just to complete the collection, if that makes sense. The only Pokemon that I care about completing would be Furret plush and Sceptile plush, and I'm only missing one of each~

Anime Collection!!

anime collection

Here's a sneak peak at my anime collection, that pretty much makes up my closet xD
Click on the images if you want bigger pics~

two shelves

These are the two big main shelves! Not everything in my anime collection is anime, just an fyi lol
Top shelf is my Rozen Maiden figures and Harry Potter books/movies, along with Miku and Madoka~ Bottom shelf has a lot of Tokyo Mew Mew, Hetalia, and Vampire Knight, since those were my favorite shows when I got into anime and this was the first shelf I made. I still like all of these shows, but I'm not really into Hetalia and Vampire Knight anymore. Tokyo Mew Mew will always have a special place in my heart since it was my first anime <3 Of course there is a smidge of Vocaloid there too, Vocaloid ended up in almost all of my shelves xD
I've also got two Black Rock Shooter and two Sword Art Online nendoroids there, those are more recent.

shelf1shelf1.2

A few closeups~Collapse )

This is my second shelf! It's really a mix of my different stages of "I like this anime." Lots of Hetalia and Madoka Magica, plus of course Doctor Horrible, Jaime from Game Of Thrones, Buffy from BTVS, Mako from Kill la Kill, and the three Sword Art Online girls.

shelf4 shelf4(2)

This is the shelf above the previous one. It's probably one of my favorites, especially since my Pullip dolls are on it (with the exception of one that's on another shelf xD)
This is my only shelf with Fullmetal Alchemist stuff on it, but that's actually one of my favorite shows haha. Then there's some Doctor Who Stuff (I named the Dalek, he is now called Dalek Jo), some Vocaloid and Madoka Magica stuff, Jupiter from Sailor Moon, and Arya from Game of Thrones. Btw, if anyone can translate the Watamote strap I have hanging up, I'd love you forever XD
The flash on the camera made the dolls look really crappy, so if you want to see some more accurate pretty pics I have them here:Collapse )

shelf2.1shelf2.2

This is the shelf that is blocked by the wall, so you can't see it unless you go into the closet or stand at a different angle. It's my newest shelf, but I'm currently having another made to go above this.
Some of the Amnesia figures are blocked because of the camera angle, but you can usually see them perfectly. I love that show, it got me into the reverse harem genre which is now one 60% of what I watch xD
As you can see this shelf is mostly Madoka Magica and Vocaloid, with the exception of Chihiro from Dangan Ronpa, Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon, Captain John Hart from Torchwood, Kaname from Vampire Knight, all my Amnesia guys, Giroro from SGT Frog (I normally don't watch this kind of stuff, I swear) and Caren from Fate Stay Night (Haven't seen this show yet, oops...)
And then I've got Vincent and Break from Pandora Hearts hanging up along with Charlotte from Madoka Magica.

shelf5

And here's my newest shelf! It is also blocked by the wall, but it's a level higher than my colorful shelf. I'm gonna add more stuff to it eventually, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It has all my newest things beside my Pandora Hearts straps, figures, and keychain figures (which I still need to find a place for)~ The keychains are Tiki, Kjelle, and Laurent from Fire Emblem Awakening. The three nendoroids are Marissa from Touhou, Aoba from Dramatical Murder, and Shinku from Rozen Maiden. The flash on my camera is messing with the colors a bit but they're all legit xD Then I have my first and only figma, Ryuko from Kill la Kill and Shiki from Togainu no Chi (I had a slight yaoi phase this summer, but it's over now XD). The figures on my books are all from BTVS; I've got 1970's Spike, and two vampire/doppelganger Willow's. And lastly there's my Pullip doll who I named Janus c:

sanosuke

I also made mini shelves for a few figures/plush on the wall of my closet. The first box has Junko and Naegi from Dangan Ronpa plus Oz and Gilbert from Pandora Hearts. The tap is clear and not usually visible, but flash messed with it a bit :P Second box has Sanosuke from Hakuoki, and Rob from Game of Thrones~ Rob was a random box get btw, I was hoping for Dany or a wolf xD

vic

And last but not least, I have a few pics of Vic Mignogna posted on the other side of the wall! I get a pic for every year I see him at Roccon ^w^

-----

I've also got a few figures/plush on my desk and bed, but I'll edit this post with them later.

And that sums up pretty much all of it! I didn't include my flats, they're stored away at the moment. For anyone that is curious, these are my anime/non-anime things that are currently waiting to be displayed:

Two different Spike figures (BTVS)
Buffy figure (BTVS)
Spike doll-figure thing (BTVS)
Sharon figure (Pandora Hearts)
Alice figure (Pandora Hearts)
Oz figure (Pandora Hearts)
Gil figure (Pandora Hearts)
