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.

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.

I'll never be fond of the utensils (too stubby), but-- Bunny waffle maker!
The Japanese releases are always cuter.

I didn't lose anything in the mail after all.
And the petits arrived a lot earlier than I expected.
I still haven't opened the box.

The wallpaper I chose for the kitchen didn't turn out very kitchen-y, so I tried to make a bedroom instead. Next time I do this I think I'll paste over the partition on the top.

The faulty white balance is there to annoy those who like their white balance balanced.

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.

I love coffee, and I think I have good coffee karma: every time I've stocked up on new bags, that's when somebody sends me a lot more coffee. At the moment there are around six bags of beans waiting to be brewed! It's such an overwhelming, happy thing.

This made me very very very happy today.
I didn't think it was possible to love him more than I already do!
He looks like he's wearing a dress, but this is actually just the top. His legs were too stubby for the trousers.

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.

The Sylvanian Families armchair set arrived three days ago.
It came with two chairs, one side table, a magazine rack (and magazine templates), and a small bowl of some sort. The disclaimer says the actual product might use a cloth "of the same hue but with a different pattern", but what I got



wasn't even remotely close to the prototype.
Very disappointing.
So I did some reupholstering.



This was the last picture I took before the camera died on me.
The final product has more of the cloth tucked in the right places, but it still looks sloppy.

The (unfunny) punchline here is that the original armchair fits the playset more than the reupholstered armchair.

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.
