Recast ABJD – A Year Later – Would I Still Recommend Purchasing Recast?

I shared my decision to purchase my first recast BJD, about 14 months ago now. I wrote a very in depth, as neutral as I could manage, post about the pros and cons of buying Recast ABJD which you can read here. A year has passed now since my first recast dolls arrived, and I have bought many other Recast BJD since then.   View this post on Instagram   My new #recastbjd #recastminifee #minifeesarang #minifee #sarang #recastfriendly #abjd #bjd #doll from #chinabjd. A post shared by jenilee (@xenokitten) on Jul 12, 2019 at 5:04pm PDT I make all of my recast purchases from Chinabjd on Aliexpress and would recommend them to anyone looking to own a recast ABJD. I have over 20 legit dolls, and a handful (b

Cortex Complete Smart Dolls Will Release Soon

According to this post on the official website, the first full, non-hybrid, cortex smartdolls will release for official launch in just 2 weeks on 6/13/19. The models available will include Mirai Anniversary, Gaia, and Melody. They will be fully assembled dolls, and not model kits. They had a soft launch of Mirai Anniversary and Gaia Complete Cortex dolls earlier this month, which I completely missed. I am anxious to see what the prices will be on the 13th when the official launch begins. The vinyl version Smart Dolls cost 52,000 yen, which is approximately $475 USD. For those not familiar with Japanese import dolls, such as Asian ball-jointed dolls or Dollfie Dream, this price may seem shocking. However, for those who are already collecting other similar dolls, these prices are qu

Dream Fairy Dolls – A Cheap Body For Dollfie Dream Doll Heads

Around Christmas time I bought myself a "Dream Fairy Doll" on Aliexpress - At the time it was on sale, $59.99 for fullset. I bought it mostly for the outfit as I didn't care that much for the face. But I figured the outfit alone was worth $59.99 and free shipping. She comes with a faceup, shoes, socks, underwear, dress, accessories, 2 pairs of hands, rooted hair head (not a wig sadly), eyes, and even a painted manicure on one set of her hands. And she's huge at 62 cm. She was packaged very nicely and the doll and her dress are high quality. From my understanding, and what other people have told me, Dream Fairy Dolls are not Recast, they are a cheap ABS doll similar to Hujoo but cheaper. I don't really care if it is recast because I'm pro recast or recast friendly, but I kn...

I Want To Take an Anime and Manga Tour in Japan

OMG... I want to do this. (Maybe Next Year - I don't have Vacation Time left this year since I will be going to Peru this summer) Their next tour is in just a few weeks, and seems to only happen once a year, in March coinciding with the International Anime Festival AnimeJapan. https://japandeluxetours.com/japan/group/anime-japan-tours#anime3 Visiting Japan is my life long dream. (sadly, mostly just so I can go shopping for anime, game, and doll stuff lol. Although I do want to do the museums and cherry blossoms and hot springs and other cultural things too - though mostly, I'm just a big geeky nerd who loves anime and wants to go shopping - which is what this whole tour is designed for <3) It's not that much money (well OK it is, but it's cheaper than I expected honestly).

Rhapsody a Musical Adventure Retro Videogame Review

Rhapsody a Musical Adventure is an anime musical strategy JRPG first appearing on PS1 and Later on the Nintendo DS. This review focuses on the PS1 version. Preface: Okay, while researching some stuff (such as release date, etc) for this review, I discovered there was a sequel, and now I am sad AF because the sequel never left Japan..... Major Heartbreak! WARNING THIS LINK ABOUT THE SEQUEL HAS HUGE SPOILERS ABOUT BOTH GAMES!!!! READ AT OWN RISK!!!  The original is one of my all time favorite games. I love all the songs, the heart warming, touching story, the cute characters, adorable graphics, simple grid based turn-based Strategy JRPG gameplay, and use of the puppets in battle. I greatly prefer the version by Atlus on the PS1, much more than the version by NIS on the DS, becaus

Pusheen 2017 Spring Box Opening Review

Pusheen box continues to impress with large, big ticket items, and tons of exclusives. Pusheen 2017 Spring Box marks one year of my receiving this quarterly subscription crate, which first debuted in Winter 2015 (I missed out on the first box, boo). Ever since I joined in Spring 2016, I've never once been disappointed by the contents of my box, making it by far, the best subscription box for girls. I received my box in May, which happens to be my birthday, and inside, there's tons of birthday / party related goods - awesome coincidence. I could throw myself a Pusheen party, but don't have anyone to invite except for my cats lol. It came packaged in a cute Bunny / Easter themed Pusheen faced box. It included things like Photo Booth Props (some assembly required): ...

Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/... Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I'm hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I've waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens! Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continue

Boxychan September Anime Subscription Box Review

My Death Note Amane Misa Jun Planning Figure that I received in my September Boxychan Subscription Box is worth almost $50. According to http://myfigurecollection.net/item/1497 - I'm so happy with Boxychan. Read my other Boxychan review here I hope the company stays around forever. Not only did I get this expensive figure, but I got a manga worth $9.95 and an anime DVD worth probably $20-ish and a few other small toys. Total box value at least $80. Cost me only $25. They have many other themes too not just "anime" but the anime one is my favorite! I've been thrilled every month by this box. It's the best subscription box ever! :) Everything is 100% Legit and Officially Licensed and high quality. Not cheap or pirated stuff. I've been with Boxychan since June, and this is the first month

Boxychan Anime Box – June Unboxing Photos and Review – Monthly Subscription Box for Anime and Manga Fans

I just finished my review for Betoyo Bento here. In this review I mentioned how I just had a birthday a few weeks ago and my best friend gifted me with 2 subscription boxes. Here is the 2nd of those subscriptions - Boxychan Anime Box. I liked this box so well that I subscribed myself after opening this awesome box. I'm also going to update my top ten list of subscription boxes for geeky girls to reflect my love of Boxychan. What makes Boxychan so great in my opinion are two things - 1.) It has stuff you'll actually use. I don't know if "every" box is like this, but I'm assuming each box contains one manga and one dvd. - that's actually stuff I want! stuff I'm already buying. Yes, little figures and posters and candy and other things are good - but this is stuff that's expensive, manga is u
