Toy Tuesday - Recent Gets!

Image
Hello and welcome to Starfish's first Toy Tuesday!  I love seeing what my fellow grown toy collectors are collecting, and love to show my collection as well! I'll be showing the goodies I've been "discount" shopping for from ebay, listia, Walmart, and Target! Read all the way to the bottom, or just skip to see a video instead!
Here are a few gathered bits that I plan to send to a youtuber that I really enjoy. I was initially planning to send it to her before her birthday this month, but I think I'd like to gather a couple more items before I decide to finally send it on its way! All of these items [excluding Angel, she was bought through listia] were bought on sale at my local Walmart. Purple & yellow Crystal Surprise Zing Pig [4.88] Tsum Tsum Stackable Stitch Lip Smacker [4.88] Angel Mystery Stack Pack [2.88] I already have an Angel of my own, so I'm happy to share my double with her if she doesnt already have her! I also have a double of Stitch tha…

I love my many octopi! Playing with them, squishing them, rubbing them all over my face!

Starfish's Wishes - Funko Pop Wishlist

Image
How adorable is this little blueberry!? I can't believe how perfect this Violet Blue-regarde is! I don't think I'd want any Willy Wonka pop more that I want this one! Sadly, she's a SDCC exclusive *le sigh*. I can only hope that I'll be able to find her somewhere online eventually! Same goes for this Sex Bob-Omb 3 pack. Sadly, exclusive to SDCC. My faith is not lost in being able to find this set and add them to my collection. The only thing that could make this set better would be if Kim had some sort of mini Drum. Maybe they'll one day break up this set and sell her with her Drums. Oh my childhood. I can't wait to see how they've created such a wonderful story in movie form, and I definitely want to get my hands on this pop! I'd wished that they made him the 6" size pop, but I've read that they dont sell as well as the others. I'm ok with it! I'm not so much excited for Capitan America string lights, but excited for pop string li…

DIY: Finding Dory's Hank the Septopus Hair Clips

Image
I recently watched Finding Dory this past Friday. Not only did I cry half my body weight in tears over the adorable sadness that is Dory's story, but I fell even more in love with Hank the septopus! I was already a bit biased with him being an octopus character, but the movie has solidified my interest. I made Hank hair clips to go with the outfit I decided to wear to the movie, and now you can make them too!

Purchase your very own Hank clips here other characters soon coming!

Come With Me - Chattahoochee River!

Image
Let us get back to nature with a trip to the Chattahoochee River. I'v been once before with friends in high school. Back then we were cliff jumping, this time was a time to relax and dip in our toesies!
When we arrived at what we believed was the entrance, we started our trek.  About 20min into our trek, we noticed that we went to the photo friendly route instead of the entrance to actually get into the water!



My friends were almost tempted to just figure out how to get into the water here, but thankfully GPS and wifi exists. We figured out where we needed to be and headed back to the entrance. We found our selves on the right path, and quickly headed to the direction of the water. We did get turned around a couple times in the other entrance, as well as trying to find the play-in-able river water. I got much exercise, and got to take in as much nature as possible!




The mushroom growth was really pretty on some of the fallen trees! More walking, more walking, more walking. I was su…

Starfish's Addictions #2 - Funko, Blind Bags, & more..

Back at it again with the toy obsessions! Yup, Starfish has fed her adorable figure desires once again. It was pay day, and a day to finally spoil myself. Of course I chose toys and figures to spoil myself with! I started off with a solo trip to Michaels and Target, since I had mini missions that involved those two stores. The first of the two was to use the 50% off one regular item coupon from Michaels that I woke up to in my inbox. The second mission was to find and purchase Deadpool the game for our xbox one from Target.  After finishing up at Michaels and Target, I went to meet up with a friend and head to the local mall. When we got there, I stopped at the Disney store and another store called "Box Lunch". It's like the little sister store of Hottopic, but sells mainly anime and gamer gifts. we wanted to go to a Hottopic after not finding anything at Box Lunch, so we hopped on the train and headed to another mall. While there we went to Hottopic, Spencers, Claire&#…

Starfish's Addictions - Introduction

Image
Hello and welcome to an episode of Starfish's Addictions in which I introduce you to the world of my obsessions. For starters, I have been collecting for many many years. It started off with a liking for Sanrio characters, and anime related items [small items I could find on ebay] when I was in my single digit ages. I then found out about San-x, stationaries, and a little brown "mutant brownie" named Domo-kun. I think Domo-kun was the first obsession that I threw caution to the wind with. Then I found a little thing called Dunny and other vinyl figures. I just spun out of control. I am happy that it became more mainstream, giving me more options of favorite items to collect and more ways to throw away my money. It's all for happy feels, so it is all ok. Let's dive in!

I used to say that I have a collection of collections, but recently realized that it's just a collection of things I find personally cute!
At the moment, I have one bookshelf to house all of my …
