I ‘May’ be a little late - Feb–Apr’17

AnAbleAngelAnAbleAngelHace 7 mesesLoot
Ahem,

Excuse the terrible pun.

With University classes back in full swing, I haven’t found much time to consolidate my loot over the past few months. As always, just the usual shenanigans – more Houki merchandise, AmiAmi orders and a unique proxy purchase!

On the topic of Uni, this is my Uni bag:

I enjoy outwardly expressing myself and my hobbies! My friends like to joke about how I’m such a weeb with a bag like that, but I feel that it speaks greater volumes about me and who I am and what I love, and that I’m not afraid to be myself.

From observation, it’s a common trend in University anyway. In high school (from my experience anyway) there’s a stigma that everyone needs to conform or you’ll be bullied or whatever, but when you graduate you realise no one really cares in greater society; obviously until you need to demonstrate professional conduct. But I think Uni is a great place to just go all out with finding your personality and who you want to be.

Anyway, let’s begin.


February Suruga Order

I generally use Treasure Japan for my Surugaya proxy orders, but this time I decided to give FromJapan a try. I learnt about the huge Surugaya boxes the hard way when it was forwarded to my doorstep, and also when I was surprised by the expensive global shipping cost.

I try to make beefy Surugaya orders where possible, or at least try and cake them with as much Houki stuff as possible, since its more cost efficient that way with the proxy use and shipping.

I was so glad that I could pick up this Houki tote bag (which i'll turn into an itabag) ITEM #184418, since it eluded me on Mandarake about a year or so ago. I didn’t expect the ita-bag to feel so robust. It’s got this reinforced cloth material similar to the handles around the whole bag.

The second item in this photo is a prize houki pack. The contents are shown below:

The pack included a clear file, book cover thing, and a bookmark.

Houki straps that were hard to find elsewhere. Some haven’t got entries.
ITEM #75725
ITEM #79976
ITEM #73917
ITEM #308423

Houki mini-charms. A prize one and a gashapon one ITEM #106677.



https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4172/34075136300_2398996635_k.jpg

Houki mini-figures. The one on the right is ITEM #188576. The one on the left is a combination of sets: ITEM #183374 and ITEM #181808
As shown on this box:

So now I have all the variants!

March FromJapan Order

I mentioned earlier that I made a unique proxy order. I actually put the order in for this item late last year using FromJapan.

A very unconventionally shaped box!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4181/34075190120_528ff6f18c_k.jpg

I had purchased a curtain from Curtain Damashii, and it definitely wasn’t cheap. The intention behind was that I required a thick curtain because sunlight would hit my face in summer mornings, and wake me up. Mind you, during Summer break I stay up REALLY late and have mad sleep ins.

So why not fix the problem with what I love best?!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4183/34418759636_75cfdf515c_k.jpg

Choosing the curtain art was difficult for me since I was stuck between a number of designs. Moreover, since this was going to be quite a considerable investment, I needed to choose one I wouldn’t feel regretful for. Of course, one of my favourite Moe artists Karory was high on the agenda. In the end, I went with her original character ‘Angel’ because of its ties to my online alias ‘AnAbleAngel’.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4173/33653573943_6e3ac08bb8_k.jpg

I added these curtain tassel things to the order because I may as well have.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4159/33653581053_b5e5eb1c71_k.jpg

The curtains are of superb quality! They feel satiny, and block out the sunlight well. The print translated perfectly as well!

I forgot to add that I purchased the light blocking curtains, so the curtains are thick, and only have the print on one side. As for the curtain size, they leave a small gap on the edge of my window. Of course, I was aware of the measurements prior to purchase, but that gap is negligible because my blinds are able to prevent most of the sunlight from that gap.

Bonus Ebay Order

I needed some pillow inserts for my anime pillow cases that I’d bought. I found a suitably sized pair of 2 on Ebay for about $15AUD which I thought was really reasonable.

They fit well, and generously fill up the entire pillow!

March AmiAmi Order

This order was reduced to straps after some delays, so it arrived in one of those small boxes and the shipping cost wasn’t crazy.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4185/33653569753_469dd6e153_k.jpg

Was mostly Scum’s Wish/Kuzu no Honkai merch (including ITEM #563678) but I threw in some preowned SAO prize straps: ITEM #521494 and ITEM #521498 to make it worthwhile.




April AmiAmi Order

Just the usual AmiAmi monthly order batch. I threw in Alter’s Suguha figure ITEM #144382 last minute because it popped up on preowned, but also because she’s my favourite SAO girl. I actually forgot to take more photos of it X_X

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4185/34418766386_a510503510_k.jpg



Here’s something different, a Highschool DxD neck pillow! I decided to buy it because of the meme value. Unfortunately, the art didn’t translate to the pillow amazingly, but I don’t regret the purchase. It came with a bonus postcard with the reference art!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4183/34075169820_d1b29d996a_k.jpg

My favourite DxD girls!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4190/34418772896_b93c479686_k.jpg



Some apparel merchandise. An Oarai High School parka jacket and Suguha graphic T-shirt ITEM #548498

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4182/33617831944_87b45a4942_k.jpg

The graphic T-shirt turned out great ^_^ It’s by Hobby Stock which is different to the household known Cospa. I feel Hobby Stock’s fit is a little better for me compared to the Cospa’s.

Recently I’ve been going wild with strap purchases, mostly because they’re so cheap and accessible. But they’re also a great way to blow off some steam for recent hype-needs, instead of breaking the bank with impulsive figure purchases.

ITEM #523423 - Mashuuuu
ITEM #542723 - Kashima
ITEM #234286 - Haruna
ITEM #234372 - Shigure
ITEM #234285 - This is my second Yamato, which will be used on my Uni bag

I also got two Suzuya straps, one for myself and another for a friend who likes her as well.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4177/34075182010_607cb2e03f_k.jpg

KonoSuba strap set! The Anime was too funny to not grab this.
ITEM #538501 - Aqua
ITEM #538502 - Megumin
ITEM #538503 - Darkness

https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2879/34418784806_97c707dcda_k.jpg

I’ve ordered the second volume with the girls in some of their more comedic poses.

I’m trying to figure out a way to displaying my straps around my room, since my corkboard is full. Currently they’re all piled up on one of my shelves :S.


Thanks for reading, and have a nice day =)

kin (Hace 7 meses) #20937100That is a lot of merch! Always wanted to buy a neck pillow but so far I haven't really seen a pattern I wouldn't mind wearing in public, yours looks amazing tho!
Thanks! I probably wouldn't take it on the bus or train (because its not convenient to store in my bag) but definitely for flights!

Ciciely (Hace 7 meses) #20957507I didn't know they made neck pillows like that. I'm dead. Great loot!!
Haha thanks :P the first ones I saw were on AmiAmi for Strike the Blood.

BlackWolf (Hace 7 meses) #20962997Damn that's a lot of straps. I only just started collecting straps starting with those Konosuba ones and an AsunaxYuuki one. Good to see you still have a serious Houki obsession ;) Great loot.
Yeah! Straps are great man, easy to store and display too! And yep, Houki's best girl and always will be :D Glad to see your still active. Hope work is going well :)
