I have nothing to say for myself... I went balls-to-the-wall crazy bidding on this, after deliberating for a couple days over whether I could afford it (between bills, community purchase commitments, etc), where I would put it, and if it was really something I wanted to pursue.

I don't know if I can call this a grail. The giant PC Lapras has been on my wants list for ages, and wasn't something I ever thought I'd obtain even before confirming out how rare it was on pkmncollectors (not seeing it listed on any ancient sales websites or in anyone's collection, aside from the mysterious photo on someone's porch that everyone has), much less see for auction. I was even debating about parting with my small lapras collection, since obtaining the giant PC plush and "completing" it was such an impossibility. I'm glad I didn't! Tracking down the rest of the lapras plush, and even the mirage plush, seems like it has purpose again, and I can confidently say I'll be motivated to resume tracking down lapras figures as well :D

The only thing remaining now is the anxiety-ridden wait for it to arrive safely at Treasure Japan's warehouse and be shipped to me. At least this will give me time to clear off the space I want to put her, and likely clear out a majority of what's left of my never-seen side collections x)

I want to put her right at the foot of my bed on my piano bench, which is a space that has up until now been occupied by Gandalf the Arceus TOMY plush, my fire horse binders, and a box full of whatever is currently in my sales post/designated to go there. I'll need to get rid of all that, as well as most of my unneeded sales items, to even have a shot at fitting Lapras there. I think some of my big plush will have to go, too, because I've got way too many large plush now that are main/side collections to keep ones that aren't. Spare Regigias TOMY, Infernape TOMY, and DX Kirakira Arceus must go.




Though... she might be too wide to fit on my piano bench, which means I'll need to have a backup place for her. While puzzled over where else to put Lapras, I am quite pleased that I have the opportunity to have this problem :)

so. I am now mostly freaking out every time I look at anything with an internet browser because I think of LAPRAS. this month has been a crazy time for special finds and wins for me, it's just... amazing. I can't really capture the way I feel right now in words - a weird mixture of elation and anxiety (borderline freaking out, haha). I still don't feel like grail is the right word for Lapras, either, since it's not like I was out there hunting her down... I just looked in the right place at the right time, and things worked out perfectly. I always assumed it was just one of those things I'd never own, and just see in someone else's collection, you know? (maybe not in a collection on the comm, but I like to imagine the mystery photo Lapras is part of someone's collection and not something that got worn out and thrown away. that makes Caryn sad :c)

anyway, after taking my mom to not-chemo, I went a little crazy organizing my closet, beneath my bed, shelves, etc. I've got a full bag to take to Goodwill, and filled another with things to be recycled/thrown away. I even managed to get some stuff photographed to put up in a sales post and out of my room, though I don't want to do it all at once and overwhelm myself with packages to ship (not right before Christmas, anyway). hnnnnng. so much to do to prepare my body room for a giant.


there will be picspam. so much picspam.
I want to stack so many things on Lapras omg. whales, pokedolls, floons and fireponies...
