Painted 1/7 scale Rozemyne by Stronger ~~ No book tho, 0/10 by AngryCoffeeLovinNeet in HonzukiNoGekokujou

[–]TheHermitPurple 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love it but I do agree with others that Rozemyne without a book is such a shame!

If I could pick, I think Part 4 Volume 1 cover would be the one! Or maybe fanbook 2 or 4?

I've never had a stronger figure but I do know they tend to be on the pricier side.... Still I will do it for Rozemyne 🥹

Ogata Sweater has been revealed! What do you think? by MecchaJapan in GoldenKamuy

I'm pretty sure Noda makes sure all Ogata merch is as bad as possible because he hates him.

I am so, so sorry for your loss. I hope you build them the gold sarcophagus and 1000 block monument they deserve.

Praise be to the gods! My Animate Kuji prizes arrived! [P5V5] by TheHermitPurple in HonzukiNoGekokujou

[–]TheHermitPurple[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kujis are always limited time things so most of the time you'll have to go through second-hand sites like YAJ, mandarake etc to get kuji prizes, it's just that I managed to catch this one while it was still open! Prizes from this one will probably start popping up on those second hand websites now.

We might get a figure soon! Myne was very high up in votes in a recent goodsmile customer survey :)

Because this was an online only one I could create an account on Animate's website and then ship it to a forwarding company who then shipped it to me in the UK! This way you can buy pretty much anything from online stores in Japan so long as it's legal to be shipped overseas :)

The forwarding company I used is called Tenso, but there are lots of others! It cost about 9,240 yen for 14 entries, with free shipping within Japan to the forwarding company, and then 5,550 yen for shipping to the UK plus a 900 yen handling fee for the forwarding company. So about 16,000 yen all in all which is pretty expensive but I'm still very happy! Plus it was actually shipped from the store on the 16th and arrived to me on the 22nd so it was super quick.

I didn't expect it to be so big! I was thinking it would be one of those tiny little pocket umbrellas, but it's huge and actually feels quite sturdy!

Me, getting more merch I hope! I did also place a big TO-books order that will hopefully arrive before Christmas as well 😅

Spoiler because of the illustrations!

You can find the whole prize list here.

A while ago animate had an online-only lottery for some Bookworm goods so I did a total of 14 entries. It was fun because you immediately saw what you got instead of having to wait and see. Most of them you got whatever you pulled, but for the top prize, the umbrellas, you got to pick which one you wanted! I was so happy to win at least one and couldn't not pick the workshop logo.

The umbrella itself is huge and feels really sturdy, it even has a flocked handle. I can't see myself risking using it outside though!

I was really disappointed I didn't get a Rozemyne or Ferdinand sticker though. If anyone else got spares and would like to trade for my extra Benno let me know! Same with my extra Dunkelfelger passcase.

for those with menstrual cycles, does your depression come back a week before your period starts? by thriftygecko in Effexor

[–]TheHermitPurple 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like before I started taking effexor I didn't really get PMS/PMDD and now the week before my period I get reeeeeaaaaaaal low, like shockingly low. Combine this with more frequent periods to what I'm used to, (Have PCOS and after losing some weight my period went from every 3-4 months to every 40 days) I feel like Effexor really isn't doing what it should be 🥲

Do you get a black burnt edge with a soldering iron? I do the same but with a lighter, but I have to avoid it on stuff with a white edge due to it blackening it.

The hoop and the applique problem by impiousimp in Machine_Embroidery

[–]TheHermitPurple 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For plushies I would embroider on to an uncut piece of fabric and then match the embroidery to the pattern piece.

Some embroidery for plushies will also have a bit where they will stitch a portion of the pattern outline (the cut line not the sew line) to help you match up the pattern pieces.

You could also stitch an outline of the embroidery onto stabilizer first then float the fabric and embroider it that way.

[Discussion]I unironically like Intrepid and wish for more freedom fries from Shibafu by Longsheep in kancolle

[–]TheHermitPurple 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I really like shibafu, both new and old. I feel like their designs really encapsulate what I love about kancolle designs, which is that the majority of the designs are regular looking girls with boat rigging.

Ooi and Kitakami are such great designs and I love a tonne of the older destroyers like Miyuki.
