espresso: (sensei (hmm))


Maybe it's because I haven't checked out the shelves in a while, but I was really surprised to find these in stock.

The cat was a gift.
Review for the (predictably expensive) lot to follow.
I still have a package to claim.

I was actively buying miniatures until the first half of 2010, after which I momentarily lost the interest and the drive for them. I only started looking at pieces again a few weeks ago. My last purchase for the year would probably be the Toymaker's Set from Sylvanian Families.

P.S. I had to cancel my last few figure preorders, but I swear, I will have that Megahouse 1/8 Okita. Someday. I'm already dreading the color prototype for the Katsura one. And I preordered this today, even though I've never read the series. He's too adorable, and I love all the accessories, and I'll be blunt -- I want that lamp.

These are really, really small. Like 4mm x 4mm small. If L were standing it'd only be a little taller than him. Anyway, I got the Tokyo Tower set for my birthday.* Planning to get the Kinkakuji one soon.

* Last year was a bit epic, celebration-wise, but this year was very quiet. Sensei stayed in his box and I had too much work and zero sleep. Too bad since I already bought us matching cakes. No, really.

Fiddled with the moving panel in the living room to make it look like it was cemented over half-assedly, then decorated with weird things like a gigantic fishing rod and some rope for hanging. It makes zero sense and therefore is despair-inducing, which is why I love it.

I didn't post this back then because the "wall" on the left side moved a bit.

I want to talk about L and why his neck peg placement is ingenious and silly at the same time, but now is not the time for that.

Which reminds me, I also have to find a new carrying case for him, something bigger than the one I use for sensei, because the chair is quite bulky.

And it's such a relief to have a figure that can actually sit down.

The High Tea set is so much love! I think this might be a bit better than Orcara, though the latter also has good sets. Good thing these are very hard to get from outside HK.

I saw some small metal bars for scrapbooking on sale, and used some for wall-mounted holders. I wanted to hang more cups, but I realized I already sold my cup set, and the ones I have left don't have open handles. Sigh. I'm also thinking of using the bars to hold up some shelves.

I got him a wall clock. You have to look at it closely to see it's a Hello Kitty vintage clock. It's from the Sanrio Vintage Mini 3 series.
There's also a Tuxedo Sam electric fan which is huge but cute. I'm saving it for summer.

If Wikipedia's to be trusted, today is Itoshiki Nozomu's birthday. It also happens to be my birthday as well, which gives me -- or us? -- a very good reason to crack open a box from Re-Ment's Mini Sweets series.

The second floor doesn't look too stable, but I kind of like this layout. You can actually stick a light up that ceiling. Hmmmm.

This one's more coherent, I think.
I'm focusing on the living room part this time. It has a lot of potential.
