And because it's been a long time since I've been posting (or at least regularly), I can be completely shameless about posting more. :D Thus! Picspam of stuff!

Like Exhibit A: part of my Christmas present! :D That's right, one pair finally came, now presented for your viewing pleasure by an amazing (...okay, not really) feat of contortion!

They actually came about... uh... a week to two weeks ago? But I've been a bit busy/distracted for pictures, and besides, after having waited 7-8 months for half our order, I'm entitled to grouse. ^-^

This came in the mail... uh... I forget. Either yesterday or the day before. My memory sucks like you wouldn't believe.

That, my dears, is a bag of mineral makeup THE SIZE OF MY HEAD. d(^____^)b So that's three lipsticks, two lipliners, one eyeshadow primer, two foundations, one blush, twelve eyeshadows and one free lipgloss tin. AND AND AND. All for $37.50! :D They were having a 50% off sale, and I couldn't resist $1.50 an eyeshadow when drugstores sell them at $9+ each. More colors to practice/play with!

Here is one of the two purchase I made at AN... and by far the more pricey one. I feel a little silly now, I could probably find a better price for it if I were to hunt around a little more. But! I was so happy to be at a con again, and with the opportunity to add to my Play Arts. ^-^ No Zack yet, but I will persevere!

That's the FFVII Cloud with the hardy-DAYTONA, not Fenrir. He's still not out of his box yet because frankly, I haven't found a place to put him. Too many Clouds in my room as is. ^^; And here I am still thinking on getting CC!Play Arts someday! Oy vey.

And because I just noticed the influx of LJ comments in my inbox, this last one goes out of the cut in what is probably a vain attempt to shut you fuckers up. (Not Yoke or Take, obvs.)

For those of you who don't think I own the game just because I played the cracked Ultima PC version while away at school. I do. This is the version that came with the Advent Pieces: Limited Box. I also have the American PlayStation one, but that's downstairs and would require digging. Besides, I don't need any pathetic sneering about how it's just Greatest Hits or something.

And yes. You're right. I haven't finished playing the game. Gasp. Shock. But you want to know where my game ended? Last battle. Northern Crater. It's not hard to read up/watch what happens in the next 10-20 minutes of gameplay/final sequence, assholes. And I'm pretty sure I can hold my own in knowing canon against some of the more "hardcore fans" out there.

Honestly, there are other, more legitimate reasons for bitching at and trolling me. Why stick with the truly laughable ones? Really.

Last time I feed the trolls, promise. They just caught me on a bad day for ignoring insults.

Stephanie: your attention I wants itmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 05:20 am (UTC)
Haha I think it was more so the fact that it was a cracked version of the PC game and not a legit one that seems to get anontroll's goat, but really I think they'd use anything as an excuse to flame. =_=;;

... I was going to say something more coherent regarding anon comments but then I got too distracted by the shiny.

brb staring.
Stephanie: BOING BOING BOINGmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 06:10 pm (UTC)
They weren't so shiny before! ^^; My collection is in sore need of a good dusting... it almost looks like they're out gallivanting in the snow. @.@;
languidly on July 8th, 2009 09:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, dear D: I tend to avoid dusting, myself, only because of the sneezing fits it results in. But the precious shinies deserve to be shiny ;;

Also, ever thought of disabling anon comments on your personal journal?
Stephanie: don't help people they're bastardsmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 10:59 pm (UTC)
I've considered it, yeah, but I have a bunch of friends that don't have anything to do with LJ beyond occasionally visiting mine who comment anonymously instead of getting one for themselves. I don't like shutting them out just because of the periodical stupid.

Besides, I've had the occasional sockpuppet harass me to. Most notable is still mirrored_sakura.
fontech on July 8th, 2009 12:50 pm (UTC)
...What is it with you and anon haters? They follow you like the plague, crikey.

I seriously hope it's no one from Luceti. Our players should know better.
Stephanie: well here's a paternity testmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 07:41 pm (UTC)
Not constantly, but yeah, every once in a while. I don't really suspect anyone from Luceti, mostly because this has been going on waaay before Luceti, and I think even before RPing.
Ellelalalalaizuki on July 8th, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC)
Omg what's with those anon haters? o.o Do they stalk your LJ or what?
Anywhooo~ in other news. There was another limited edition thing?!?!? O.O Is this just AC: Complete or something else?
Stephanie: axel: red sky at morningmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 07:56 pm (UTC)
I think just periodically. Enough so that I can usually ignore them.

And yeah, it came out with the original release of Advent Children in Japan only. It came with... uh... let's see. Advent Children DVD, Last Order DVD with miscellaneous other bonus bits, a Bahamut hat (above), the FFVII International game with the new disk covers (above) with the display stand, a tube-like box for the hat, a copy of the script, a t-shirt, a keychain-type thing with the serial number of the set (out of 77,777), and Cloud on Fenrir with a different version of the sword.

AC:C is it's own new awesome thing. Which I am also getting. It might even stop me from getting the original NA limited edition of the AC DVD. It would be kinda silly to own, um, four copies of the same movie. ._.;;

I envy at your play arts figures. ;_;

Stephanie: darkury ice swordmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 07:58 pm (UTC)
I would say that one day I'll amass them all... but you and I both know that as long as Square-Enix lives, it will milk this game to no forseeable end. ;-;

Agreed. :|

You know, I really don't get why every single fandom must bring in so much hate and competition and who's better than others.
People really do forget that in the end, it's a game. And games are for fun, at least that's what I'm being told.

Just for curiosity, just how many Clouds do you own? :p
Stephanie: coffee heartmirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 08:17 pm (UTC)
I think a little competition is good for the soul, and just as well because it's also pretty unavoidable. Just not the point of anonymous flaming or outright bashing, all personal bias aside.

Aaaand... uh. Six. One American Play Arts on Fenrir, one Japan Play Arts on Fenrir, one Trading Arts, one KH Trading Arts, and the new FFVII Cloud with the hardy-DAYTONA. ^^; I used to have one more, but I wore him on a necklace and he fell off in a rowdy mosh pit. I decided my life was worth keeping.

...I like hoarding stuff. ._.;;
Liad: believeevening_rose on July 8th, 2009 09:10 pm (UTC)
Competition is good, but I think that some people just search for a reason to flame others, which just seems so useless to me..
I could never really get into the online FF fandom for some reason, myself...

That's impressing. Lots of Clouds. I only have one for now, he seems to be enough to handle. I need a new shelf, anyway. :p
Stephanie: decorated cupcakemirroredsakura on July 8th, 2009 11:04 pm (UTC)
A lot of it's the people you meet, I guess. I'd never have fallen as hard for FFVII as I did if it hadn't been for meeting some really cool people right about the time I started poking around online. Same with L'Arc before that! :D

And hehe, it's also kinda sad. My sister rolls her eyes every time I contemplate buying a new figure. When I began there were only supposed to be two! @.@
Liad: little wondersevening_rose on July 8th, 2009 11:12 pm (UTC)
It is, of course. You always have to know where to find them, too. I always wished I could write in this fandom, but I never felt comfortable enough. And of course, VII isn't one of my favorites, anyway. Never liked the mini games it's filled with. I'm all for VIII, but that's a known fact, isn't it? Well, lately, IV, too.

It's not sad! What's better than collecting figures, anyway? They're so lovely. :D

I talk too much, sorry. :x
Stephanie: ultimecia: the end is pretty damn nighmirroredsakura on July 9th, 2009 01:12 am (UTC)
True. I never liked the chocobos. Well. Catching them and all was fine, running around with them and their plucky music was adorable, but the whole breeding them sidequest was something I just couldn't put myself through. And that cut me off a lot of the other sidequests.

I'm going to steel myself through it in my next run-through (after I'm done with VIII, X, and X-2... pretty much at the same time) because I love 100% game completion but! Darn chcoobos. Darn WEAPONS. Speaking of VIII though, did it take you forever to get through that last Ultimecia battle too? @.@

Also, pffff, who talks more than who?? ;p
Liad: walk awayevening_rose on July 9th, 2009 07:55 am (UTC)
Oh, chocobos. Don't like them. Never did. Especially not in VII. But most of the mini games made me want to pull my hair out. I suck at anything requires minimal coordination and it was just really annoying for me.

As for VIII, maybe the first few times I played, but not anymore.. Last time I finished the game, was something like a month ago and I don't remember it taking too long, although I didn't have my best team selected. Had to finish it using only Irvine because I couldn't get Squall no matter how many times I reloaded. Didn't satisfy me much, really. I should do over.
But I'm actually playing another round of IV now, so I'm busy with that. I keep telling myself to try going back to VII, but it annoys me too much.

And as for talking, the easiest way to get me not to shut up is bringing up FF. I lose all kind of self control. :p
Stephanie: doooooooooork soramirroredsakura on July 10th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
Hahah I know the feeling. Even the parts that aren't exactly mini-games, but are very button-smash-glargh-inducing. (e.g. The first mission in Midgar where you need to synchronize the button pushing with Barret and Tifa? ABJECT FAILURE.)

I had to rely almost solely on Rinoa's limit breaks through the last battle... that and killing off my GFs so that I lived through Griever's attacks. @.@; Oh the days when I just wanted to blitz right through to the end...

Haven't played IV though. Want to. Kain looks badass and broody. ^_^; I have such good reasons.
Liad: walk awayevening_rose on July 10th, 2009 10:06 am (UTC)
Yeah, just that. It's sad, but it's one of the main reasons I don't like this game as much.

Oh, ouch. That explains why it took a while. ;p I'm spoiled, actually. I don't mind restarting the game until I'll get at least one character I like. Of course, that's now. I don't think I've done it when I first played the game..

And IV is great. Actually, Kain is a good enough reason for anything. I'll even reuse my Kain icon to prove this point. ;D
