if u like rambly blog posts, this one's for you~
Current mood:  animated

 
ey hey~ Another life update post ^^ I feel like I haven't written in forever! And I feel like I say that every time! XD It's nice to be back, I've been spending a lot of time trying to enjoy summer after everything that happened with school. Not a whole lot has happened tbh? But I'll take any excuse to write xP

eal quick, fun HTML thing for ppl who care abt that stuff: For the lace borders on this post, I used to have to estimate how long the post was gonna be, and have a bunch of duplicate images on top of each other (which is why some of my posts looked different when u looked at them on the main post feed vs. their individual post pages). Instead I figured out I can add the image as a background for the table boxes, so it'll be the right length no matter what! :D And it'll load faster, hopefully. I'm contemplating going back and updating some posts to be like this, but idk im feeling lazy xD tbh this opens up a ton of customization options for blog posts, I already have a ton of ideas xD I'm glad this works like this tho, I've noticed that sometimes the html editor on here doesn't like certain tag formats/wording, so it can be hard figuring out what you can do.
 
o! This past weekend I went to my friend's house. It was supposed to be for his birthday (which was actually on 7/30, but he couldn't do anything until now) but we just hung out and forgot to be festive™ xD I gave him his bday gift, and he really liked it!! So my risk paid off. I couldn't do all the ideas I wanted to do when I mentioned it on stream a couple of months ago, but I told him abt them and he appreciated the thought/efforts :P I got him this Sweet 1600 Frankie, and she was not easy to find, let alone get a good deal for. 
 
shoutout to his cat photobombing lol

 wanted to draw for the birthday card/envelope I had planned, but I just didn't have the energy to finish it tbh. I had the sketches done for Draculaura, Frankie, and Clawdeen's Sweet 1600 outfits, but it was just a lot of work lol. Here's the Frankie style test I did, it's the only thing I had colored (you prob saw the sketches I had on stream tho). Tbh I might finish those drawings one day? I still like them, so idk :P
   
've also been slowly but surely updating my site on Neocities. The biggest page I've been working on is for my magical girl collection. It's currently still kinda weird, but everything's there so it's ok for now xD And!! I've started using anchors too since it's such a long page, which is p fun. I will have to find a better way to organize it tho, bc as of rn there's a problem with some of the image links breaking since there's just too much to load. :/ But it's been fun keeping up with it and seeing what everyone else is doing on their sites ^^
   
very random thing, but I've mentioned on stream a few times I wanna learn to skate, and that's still very true. tbh I've always wanted to learn bc it seemed rlly cool, but I was just never in a position to do it? But lately watching viva la bam again has rly brought it out of me and made me realize how much I'm actually invested in trying. I never allowed myself to give it much thought since I realistically couldn't until now, and I didn't wanna get my hopes up for something I wouldn't be able to do at the time. But I've really missed being able to get around town ever since my bike got stolen (I still don't have a new one oof), and idk... it would be fun ^^ I can't wait to destroy my shoes and fall a lot xDD

h also!! I posted this on stream when it happened but I somehow got my hands on a Bullets CD?? It comes with this very cool quicktime player for music videos, and if I can find a way to rip it off the disc I'd love to upload it to archive.org, since I had no idea this was a thing you could get and it's a rlly cool thing tbh!! Like, what a cool little piece of software that someone made :P I love that kind of stuff, so here's to hopefully sharing. Something nice abt it is that there's a link to dl quicktime built in (bc who has quicktime these days, and apparently back in 2007), and the link actually works?? And the player is still compatible with the latest version of quicktime!?!? Considering how much I struggled with getting spicetify to run properly again after spotify's really stupid and meaningless update™ it was nice for something to just... work. :)

UPDATE: I uploaded it and forgot to post it. it's
here xD


ut yeah. Thx for reading as always. As lost as I feel about things like school and what to do with my life, fp has been a nice way to slow down and remind me that fun things I like to do are still important and worth participating in, regardless of how 'together' my life may or may not be.  That's an awfully deep note to end on, but I do love this little corner of the internet and the ppl who make it great. I hope we'll always be around ^^

(you already know what this post is about)
Current mood:  animated



























 
ey hey~! I'm really excited to write this one ^o^ As u guys probably know by now bc I lowkey spammed stream I've set up a Neocities! It's something I've sometimes seen around but after visiting ppl's sites I've found through here I had to try and make one myself. (shoutout to tescocqueen's site for being the one to finally get me to do it xD)
 
t's been a great outlet for my interest in HTML, tbh. I often found myself making more and more elaborate blog post layouts as a way to do it (which def peaked in my dream dress post oof that was tedious), as I missed making those custom profiles and boxes for sites I was on (when they'd still let you D: rip).  But doing this has been really rewarding, as I haven't made a website layout in forever. I had to unfortunately switch the program I use from NetObjects Fusion Essentials to Microsoft Expressions Web 4 (these names wtf lol), as NetObjects wouldn't install for some reason? It'd get stuck on the WinZip extraction and wouldn't actually get to the installation wizard?? idk I tried everything :/ But hey, I got to make a cool layout in the ends so I can't complain much :P (the backbone of the homepage is a table can u tell lmfaoo)
 

ere's my site! d-o-r-e-m-i.neocities.org!! I'm rlly proud of this layout. It's prob not the most efficient but it doesn't break and it loads ok xD I wanted it to be kinda similar to my blog, or how I'd ideally have it. Making that gingham border was... a task xD but it looks p good and doesn't break immersion too much with different page lengths. 

'm gonna keep writing blog posts here (the blog tab redirects to fp), but I decided it'd be easier to put the lolita wardrobe post there instead as a permanent page, since it's gonna be easer to maintain and access that way (if I put it here it'd just get pushed down after a while, which was a concern I had with my dream dress post too). So if u were wondering when I was gonna get around to it since I mention wanting to do it so much now u know xD I still have to take my own pics but it's set up for now. And the dream dress list is up there too, much longer than the one I put here. (that was... the worst table I've ever had to put together Dx) I'm alos thinking abt putting collection posts there instead of here, since it'll be easier to format and won't get lost, idk yet tho :/ I should figure out how to have comments on there for stuff like that... (ig guestbook is comments for now lmao)

lso, if anyone would like to share site stamps/stickers pm me! The idea I had for the friends page at the top nav is to showcase the cool stuff I see mutuals doing on here, since I come across ppl's sites/zines/art sometimes and I'd love to link them on my site to share ^^ Here's mine, you can find the embed code for it on the homepage~ I'll def follow u too, I wanna find more cool sites to keep up with ^^ This aspect of the internet is something I rlly miss, and I'm glad neocities is giving ppl an outlet for it~





ut yeah! That's what I've been working on, I'll try not to spam stream abt it ^^; I'll post abt updates on the site, since they matter there. thx for reading~!

very random update blog




































ey hey~ This is gonna be an update post, kinda mixed between fun stuff and more serious stuff. I'm gonna do serious stuff first, bc it's more on my mind rn. Yesterday I read Depresso Espresso's latest bulletin where they talk about the creepy interactions they had with a user on here, and it was really unfortuante to read. And I know that there are creeps everywhere on the internet, but... I dunno it's FriendProject... This fun corner of the internet that you can only really find if you want to. It doesn't have the appeal of a modern social media site, so I kinda figured like... Maybe creeps would be less of a problem? But I guess they always find a way :/ 

nd that kinda reminds me of something I thought about a while ago, how I noticed that minors are so aware that they're minors online nowadays and how I've seen a good portion of profiles saying things like "i'm a minor so dni if ur over a certain age" and stuff like that, which is kinda depressing? I will say, I was very lucky in my online experience. I've been on websites since I was 10/11 and I thankfully never had to deal with any creeps. But even amongst my friends and just hearing about things in the circles I was in, this wasn't as much of an issue? Or maybe you just didn't hear about it as much. I'm not sure, but I just think it sucks that this is something minors have to be so aware abt now. I'm kinda curious about what that new perspective is like, so if anyone wants to comment abt it I'd be happy to read. 

nd on a less serious tangent, having to be so aware of this stuff, at any age, kinda takes the fun out of the old internet feel that fp is going for? I know that we're modern people on a relic of a site, but back in ye olden times™ adding everyone and having the most friends was a part of the fun. And when I started my fp account I added everyone in the spirit of that, but I've become really selective over time because I wanna avoid potential weirdos on here. Which sucks, but I guess it's a necessity now (It probably always has been but at least in my internet experience). It does help you get a better experience much faster, so at least there's a benefit to it. Adding ppl back who definitely like MCR was a great decision xD (also happy birthday gerard way~)
 
ow for the fun stuff!! I recently got in one of my dream dresses, Whip Factory!! I don't know how I didn't include it in my actual dream dresses blog post, because I've been after this one for years. I rarely found listings for this series secondhand, and definitely not in my prefered cut and colorway (salopette in pink). So finding this for not a million dollars was something I absolutely had to jump on (shoutout to pandemic stonks)! The print is insanely detailed, and I think it's my first main piece that really encapsulates everything Angelic Pretty is known for (and what I love about them). The custom cake lace at the hem, the absolutely incredible border print, the adjustability/accomodation for a range of sizes, and of course, the deep pockets xD Getting this has kinda motivated me to try and start a wardrobe post for real, so maybe I'll do that if my shopping service order works out (I found some nice blouses, a rarity for me haha). I'm def gonna wear this to the library, it's surprisingly light and airy, which is good for rn ^^  It's finally legit getting warm so it'll be good to wear over the summer.
 
(also oh my god can u tell I got a new phone?? xD I'm so glad I don't have to struggle with picture quslity anymore, I used to have to try so hard to just get a decent pic for anything I wanted to upload aaaa)
 also found this Blossom plush backpack! I love the Powerpuff Girls, it was my favorite show on Cartoon Network (I didn't have cable tho oof, so I just had a vhs collection) and I could never find merchandise retail. (except for this one pair of pajama pants that I still wear because I could never get rid of them *o*) When I started buying things online I looked for plushies to buy and I found out about this, but they were so hard to find. My bff and I looked for one of these for years, and I finally found one! There's a lot of useless research that I had to do to pick the correct version of this item but it was worth it ^^; For anyone who might be looking for one, there's at least two main releases I know about: the colored strap version released in 2000, and the black strap version released in 2001. The main difference, besides strap color, is the size of the backpack opening on their heads. The colored strap version has a much smaller opening (maybe ~3in. from what I can guesstimate) while the black strap version has a bigger, more functional one (~6in. from what I could tell from other ppl's listings and my own measurements). Surprisingly there's a decent number of listings for these of all three girls on eBay right now, so gl if you're looking for one! ^^

lso, did u guys hear abt the ppg live action show that's happening? I'm nervous but optimistic abt it. I saw some prod pics and it looks cool so far! I'm glad they're keeping their classic outfits, even if it's just for a little bit (that was something I was rlly disappointed abt for the winx netflix show). idk when it's coming out or anything but I'll make a post when I watch it ^^ 



nd yeah! thx for reading. I know that this post was a bit all over the place, and usually they're more thematic/tonally consistent, but idk I just had a lot to say. :P

(p.s.: i've finally started using absolute alignment and... it's too much power lmao omg xD)

rando post where i claim to be an ex weeb and also indulge in weeb activities
Current mood:  chill

(I really wish the blog boxes were the same size on both the main blog page and the individual post pages... best formatting on the latter as usual >_>)

 
















































ey hey ^^ A life update post bc I haven't made one of these in a heckin while~ I've noticed that since I've joined fp and started writing blog posts, I've been writing in my actual journal a lot less ^^; I've got this super decorated journal that I've had since the start of the pandemic, and I used it as a space to not only journal and vent but to also freely express aesthetics and ideas I like without the fear of judgement. So most every entry has a page theme that I make with washi tape, stickers, and stuff I print out :P But since fp has also been like that for me lately idk maybe this is good having multiple outlets. I will say, journaling has helped me a lot in the pandemic, and has helped me dump on my friends less, something I'm kinda self conscious about (ik they're here for me tho and that I'm not annoying them haha). It's a real shame that the art store here where I live closed, so now I just have all the supplies I bought back when it was open D: I won't run out any time soon but it sucks to think about. (especially since the only other art store was at the mall, and that closed too!) One of my fav things I would do once I got out of class was listen to music and walk to the strip mall where the art store was. Now that the weather has been consistently nice maybe I'll find other places to walk to (besides the library lol)
 

 
ool stuff that's happened lately tho!! I sorta got back into bento boxes xP When I was a weeb I had a massive bento lunch phase, and I actually got a cool Sailor Moon Crystal box... That I rarely used Dx But I got motivated again when I was talking to my bff abt it since he likes the idea of them too, and I invested™ in a utensil set! idk how I had this box for like six years and never got utensils for it but hey xD maybe it'll motivate me to use it now that I have a cool way to eat out of it :P

(and yes... I ate a ramen with those hello kitty chopsticks... it changed my life and made me question my ex-weeb status xDD)

lso, I've been playing Animal Crossing more lately ^^ tbh I kinda got bored bc idk what to do with my town, and I got more preoccupied with other games (that I'll talk abt in a bit spoiler alert its halo) but one of my friends traded me a pink villager named Flora recently, and tbh she has such a good aesthetic and I will be scheming to get her to wear my Cure Flora custom design xD AND, the disaster that was the Sanrio Amiibo Card rerelease happened friday... No I wasn't able to buy a pack but shoutout to one of my irl friends and Fossa for giving me all the cool stuff!!  I've always struggled with decorating in AC (esp in new leaf) bc there wasn't a lot of furniture I liked, so having a ton of furniture that inspires me to legit decorate is rlly exciting ^^ I made myself a new bedroom, and tbh its the only room in the house that has any direction xD
 

 
f you like the custom designs on the floor/stall, they're made by Usamimi! I have a real issue with needing to make everything I like myself because I'm so used to not being able to find it elsewhere, but she makes rlly cool designs and I gotta let myself accept and enjoy other people's work :P I did make the MCR hat myself tho, the code is MO-5MLV-BJ0G-1S14 if anyone wants it :P

or anyone reading this, who r ur fav villagers? I don't have a whole lot of exposure since I've only played new leaf and horizons so I'd love to know ^^ Klaus and Melba are my absolute favorites that I'll take with me to every town Melba is p self explanatory I think, how can u not like her? And Klaus because he was a very interesting villager to have in new leaf... he was my first smug villager (I didn't know about personality types at the time) and he had oddly three-dimensional dialogue compared to the rest of the ppl in my town? (maybe bc he lowkey flirts with you?) So I liked him immediately lol :P here's some appreciation for the best bear boi bc literally no one likes him and it makes me so sad he doesn't even have a sticker in the official animal crossing sticker book and honestly?? that's a federal offense >:(

 
(I nearly cried in the club when I saw he
came to my bday party... I need help lmfao)

nd lastly, I've finally gotten back to playing Halo ^^ I've had the master chief collection for a while and I did start playing combat evolved back in january, but I stopped for some dumb reason (esp considering that I stopped at an important story point?? but whatevs :P). Halo was always a series I wanted to get into but I never had an xbox, so im glad I've gotten so invested I said this on stream but Captain Keyes was so infuriating... if the universe ends up being in legit direct jeopardy bc of the flood it's all his fault and he got what he deserved lowkey js... him going off on his own like that made me so mad considering I spent SO MUCH TIME SAVING HIM FROM THE COVENANT oml... and then they expect me to feel bad for him bc now I have to work with his daughter?? sorry bro I hope u aren't as dumb as ur dad was >3> (this sounds harsh but if u played CE you'd understand why I'm so bothered lol) But the rest of the series is great so far xD I'm only halfway through halo 2 rn tho so ive got a long way to go (hopefully terminals won't be annoying to find in later games).


ut yeah :P thx for reading my random post~ It feels nice to be actually posting more than once a month xD And yknow, any excuse to do html stuff is always good  I'm so used to over-formatting now that normalish posts look kinda weird xD

❤Dream Dresses!❤
Current mood:  cheerful
















































ey hey :P This is my dream dresses post! I originally wanted to make a legit sentimental jfashion post, bc it does mean a lot to me and I thought I had a lot to say abt it, but it quickly became a dream dresses post sitting in my drafts xD So here we are. I would just share my Lolibrary wishlist, but as of right now u can't do that (and it'd take the fun out of the tradition of posts like these lol).
 
ere's some of my top dream dresses! It's not all of them, just the ones I can actually say something abt, or dresses that really inspired me when learning about the fashion. You can click on the dress pics to see the lolibrary listings for more info (they'll open in a new tab). And you def have to, the pics here don't do these dresses justice with how much detail and effort was put into them~
 
Milky Planet Salopette
Sugar Dream Dome Salopette
Romantic Rose Letter OP
ne of my first dream dresses was the Milky Planet salopette. I remember daydreaming about having this really nice sax x pink OTT sweet coord, even though I don't realistically want this salopette in sax? xD It's really nice in pink or navy tbh. I love how AP puts so much detail and thought into their pieces, especially during their famed 2010 sweet era.  This salopette is kind of the epitome of that, with back shirring, adjustable straps, glitter on the print, detachable bows, and pockets! I really hope I can own this dress someday, it's got a lot of sentimental value for me. print I actually got to see go on sale when it was released was Sugar Dream Dome. I promise I don't exclusively like salopettes, but this one has a hood! With bunny ears!! That's really cool ok how could u not like that xD This is definitely my favorite winter print of theirs, and I hope they rerelease it someday. That cascading snow print going down into the border of snowglobes is just... the best™.  It's a  really hard print to find unfortunately, so ig everyone else appreciated it as much as I do xD his is definitely one of their more over the top dresses, but I'm a sucker for floral prints and princess sleeves so can u blame me xD I remember seeing this dress for the first time and being blown away at how fancy it was, as I was only familair with the more neon/casual prints they have. I do have another floral print of theirs I love, Powder Rose, but this one is so over the top with lacy hearts and layers of frills, and the custom rose lace!! AP does their own custom themed lace depending on the theme of the dress, which is such a lovely detail tbh. Where else would you find that??
Kumya's GlitteryMilky
Way JSK I
Wish Me Mell Tea Time Salopette
Wonder Cookie JSK
he only non-AP dress on this list oof xD There are Baby, The Stars Shine Bright dresses I like but I generally don't go for their more elegant/sophisticated style much. This dress is incredible though, there's so much detail, and look at that star bow! (the star is detachable, too) ish Me Mell is one of my absolute favorite Sanrio characters, so when I found out this collab existed I was incredibly excited. Like a lot of Mell merch, this series is incredibly hard to come by. There's a new Wish Me Mell collab dress, but it doesn't have that 2010 sweet feel like this one does. his dress really caught my attention in the white colorway, it looks like a rainbow! Pink is great too obvs, but idk I feel like there's so much coordinating potential with this (but I'd prob just wear it with pink anyway xP).
Wonder Patisserie JSK
Sugar Pansy OP
Wrapping Heart Salopette
have been slowly but surely building a coordinate for this dress. I have these socks and this jacket, but not the dress itself Dx I really love it though, look at the detail on those cakes! And the halter neck is a nice change from most dresses I've seen AP do. (And, y'know, you can get a matching dress for your MellMell Doll, if you have one~ ) ansies are my favorite flower, and I don't see them on a whole lot on anything (compared to roses and other more popular flowers). This is such a relaxing print to look at, I really love the calm pastels and the unique waistbow this has. And it has back shirring, which is always great :P I rlly hope I can find this one day, bc I've never seen it on any secondhand markets D: nother print I got to see when it came out! I love all of the colors and the aesthetic of the entire release, but I'm a sucker for salopettes so if I had to pick I'd want this :P Especially since AP doesn't seem to do them often. This was one of the first releases I saw that got me to really appreciate more lavender in prints. I hope to have a rlly cool pink x lavender wardrobe one day~

Honorable Mentions: Sugary Carnival in pink, Sweetie Violet in pink/lavender, Be My Valentine in pink, Diner Doll in pink, Tiara Rose in pink, Toy Doll Box in pink

 
here u have it! Formatting this table was wild, I hope it looks ok... I learned a lot abt HTML today ^^; But yeah, I've never made a post like this so it's rlly cool to finally have one (It won't stop me from posting dresses on stream tho haha). If anyone else out there loves this fashion like I do, I'd love to know what ur dream dresses are! I thought abt starting a dream dress thread in an EGL group I'm in but I figured it'd be better to just make my own blog post. Thx for reading~

spicetify tutorial! change ur spotify theme if u think it's boring~ ^^
















































ey hey :P I posted on stream abt changing ur desktop Spotify theme, so here's my dumb tutorial xD Only bc the site I was learning it off of was a little confusing, so I'll try to make it as straightforward as I can ^^;

You can see my blog post dedicated to windows customization
here!

for ppl on MacOS, I think this will still work? I saw pics/preivews that looked like they were on macs. I have a windows laptop so that's how this tutorial is gonna go, but pls lmk if u get it working!

 
This is what my spotify window looks like now thanks to a cool program called spicetify! I've been looking for something like this for forever so I'm glad it exists!! I use spotify so much and a giant black window rlly doesn't go with the rest of my pink desktop experience :P (unfortunately the buttons in the corner are gonna stay black oof, but what can u do...) You can read the tutorial I followed here if you want, or stick around and read the one I'm writing. They'll be relatively the same up until we start editing theme colors.
 
 Open Windows Powershell (I ran mine as admin) and paste this to download/install spicetify:
Invoke-WebRequest "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/khanhas/spicetify-cli/master/install.ps1" | Invoke-Expression

 Type this command to start the program:
spicetify

 Type this command to backup defaults and to apply the default theme to your spotify window:
spicetify backup apply enable-devtool

PLEASE NOTE that you will NOT be able to open spotify from the regular spotify shortcut anymore if you want to see it with spicetify enabled. You need to make a new shortcut that targets C:\Users\User\spicetify-cli\spicetify.exe auto (You can change the name/icon after so it'll look normal if you want.) This does come up while you're setting things up but it's easy to miss if you're not paying attention.

Now we've got a white/orange spotify, so we know it's working! To get other themes, you can go
here to download and here to preview all of the ones that are available in the list. If you don't like any of the color palettes as they are, just pick a theme that's formatted in a way you like and continue reading to find out how to change the colors to whatever u want ^^

 Open the spicetify folder in C:\Users\User\.spicetify

 Go into the 'Themes' folder, and create a new folder inside. Name this folder whatever the name for the theme you want is. (so your filepath should look like ...User\.spicetify\Themes\[THEME NAME])

 Create a new text document within your [THEME NAME] folder and paste the info from the color.ini file on github.

 File>Save As the document, and name it color.ini. Make sure that you change the 'Save As'-type dropdown to All Files. If it is just left on the default 'Text Document (.txt)' setting, it won't change your text document's filetype from a .txt to a .ini.

 Repeat the previous step for the user.css file. Delete the remaining Text Document file (we needed to 'save as', so it's still there unmodified and we don't need it anymore).

 Now return to your powershell window. To apply the new theme, type this command:
spicetify config current_theme [THEME NAME]

(DO NOT type it in the way the website I linked says to. Adding the extra '=' just makes it think your theme name is '=' and not what you actually named it.)

 Type this command to confirm the change (it tells you this, but again if you're not looking you won't see it):
spicetify apply

Your new theme should be applied! Now we'll focus on changing the colors of your new theme. You can change elements and stuff, but i'm lazy and that's not why we're here lol xD This should be pretty familiar if you're on fp, since all we have to do is edit hex values for colors! You can use google's hex value picker by searching 'hex color picker' or whatever one you feel like to double check your colors to make sure you're changing the correct element. Make sure to save your document to apply the changes, and you may need to restart spotify to see them take effect (the spicetify commands list says there's an auto update/refresh command but I didn't get it working oof)

Feel free to paste my colors if you like my theme (I modified Deep Coral):
[Base]
main_fg                               = ff478e
secondary_fg                          = ffdbe9
main_bg                               = ff8ab7
sidebar_and_player_bg                 = ff8ab7
cover_overlay_and_shadow              = f00760
indicator_fg_and_button_bg            = ffdbe9
pressing_fg                           = eba8ff
slider_bg                             = eba8ff
sidebar_indicator_and_hover_button_bg = eba8ff
scrollbar_fg_and_selected_row_bg      = ffb8d3
pressing_button_fg                    = d26ef0
pressing_button_bg                    = eba8ff
selected_button                       = f00760
miscellaneous_bg                      = eba8ff
miscellaneous_hover_bg                = f00760
preserve_1                            = f00760



nd there you have it! Comment with the themes u make, bc I would love to see! (a lot of the preset ones are kinda boring ngl lol) I hope I didn't miss anything making this, if u have any questions/problems lmk. I hope other ppl enjoy this find as much as I do, as I use spotify a lot and it was like the only program I couldn't customize until now and it was super annoying xP Thx for reading~!

ey hey :P Two journals?? NOT months apart?? The sky is falling guys omg xDD
So I noticed I haven't posted a magical girl post in forever, and I def want to change that bc I have a lot to say (and since I'm not doing work this weekend why not spend the whole day doing this xD). Since I've already done an Ojamajo Doremi post, all I have to do is Precure! I'm gonna break it up by show, for the sake of length lol. This post'll be about HappinessCharge Precure, one of my fav seasons ^^ It wasn't popular when it came out but if you like magical girls or Precure you should def give it a try! Honestly this show not being popular is probably one of the best things abt it if you like collecting like me, bc then you can get everything dirt cheap which is definitely good for a show that relies on collecting cards—LOTS of cards.

(Fair warning, this'll prob be a long post with some huge gifs, so prepare ur browser xD It's best viewed on its own post page at 100%, so if you're reading this just scrolling through all my posts it might look a little weird >_<)
 
ere are the items I currently have! I don't have all of them, but I've got all the ones I wanted to go after. I've got some misc stuff I won't include here, I just want to talk abt the main items. From left to right, top to bottom: Fortune Tambourine, PreCard File (to store your card collection), PrettyChange Mirror, and Love PreBrace! Some of the names are a little weird in translation, but hey lol it wouldn't be weeby without stuff like that xD  Pre/Pretty (プリ) are pretty much interchangable, I'm just picking what I tend to say.

 
he main transformation item in the show is the PrettyChange Mirror! This item is pretty big compared to what I'm used to expecting for transformation items, but it has to be considering how it works. You slide a 'coordinate' of three cards into it from the top, and it lights up through the mirror! This season of Precure has a whole dress-up theme, so if you have any regular outfit cards you can mix them up and make new ones (which ig is how they wanted ppl to collect the cards). One thing I do like about this mirror is that if you have the midseason cure's cards (in this case, Cure Fortune), she also has a full transformation sequence! Generally, midseason cures (sixth ranger trope) have their own transformation/attack items, so the integration is nice for ppl like me who don't want to buy the separate item (for her, it's the Fortune Piano). Fortune is one of my favorite cures so I'm glad I can use all of her cards here ^^
 


he cards used in the mirror are called PreCards (or I guess... Pretty Cards??). They come in sets of two or three to make complete outfits: a character, top, and bottom card. There's a ton to collect outside of the main transformation/powerup cards, and I'm pretty sure they were compatible with the Precure arcade machines at the time (the black barcode at the top), which is really cool :D

his season of the show also marked Precure's tenth anniversary, so PreCard sets for every cure to date were also released, which is really cool! Every cure gets a mini-transformation when you put their cards into the mirror, which is really thorough and a lot of effort considering that at that point there were around 37 cures in the franchise at the time (i think there's around 65 now? I pray for the 20th anniversary season in a few years lol). They also released special holiday cards, movie exclusive cards (that you got if you attended the precure movie in theaters afaik), and cards commemorating 500 total aired episodes!

 don't plan on having a complete PreCard collection or anything, but I am missing a few important ones like both of Cure Princess' form changes (which sux bc she's another fav of mine oof Dx), and some of the Precure All Stars sets for cures I like from past seasons. But the great thing abt collecting these is that even years later you can find mint sets for great prices on western secondhand markets because this show didn't do well in Japan I guess, from what I've heard?? Which is a real shame because of how much work was put into the show and its merchandising. But hey, I sure do love finding rare PreCards for 500 yen on Japanese secondhand sites XDD Some of these cards even have different holographic overlays, which is such a cool detail tbh. I really love small things like that and HapiCha merch has a ton of them to appreciate and admire, and the season's aesthetic is really great. 

 don't have a whole lot to say about the Fortune Tambourine and Love PreBrace? I do like how the Fortune Tambourine operates to stay accurate to the show. It comes with a ring that connects wirelessly to the tambourine to activate attacks and stuff. It's a cool gimmick carried into her Fortune Piano, which comes with a ring that lights up with the color corresponding to which piano key is being pressed. The PreBrace is a wearable attack item (which is always fun and convenient for cosplay lol), and it's just motion sensor stuff. A nice detail though is that it also features Cure Lovely and Cure Princess's sub-attacks in the show, which could very easily be left out considering their bigger attacks are a lot flashier and tied into the merch way more. (I, for one, am pretty happy abt the inclusion of Princess Bullet Machine Gun, one of my favorite magical girl attack names XDD)
 
here u have it! This post was def harder to put together than the last one... rip me making those gifs xD I think the next one I'll do is Go! Princess Precure, as I really love the item designs/mechanics of that season and will prob have a lot to say abt everything xD idk when tho, formatting this post took way too long Dx I just hope it doesnt break lol. Thx for reading!! I hope some of u enjoy appreciating stuff like this like I do~ ^^

I'm making this post bc I went to the mall
Current mood:  chill






















ey hey :P I haven't posted in what feels like forever, but a lot of stuff has been going on (or more accurately, I've been rlly stressed and preoccupied lol). I've finally sorted out what I'm doing for school for right now, so at least I'm not being crippled by stress. It'll be hard, but it's a plan that'll give me some time to actually have free time for myself so I don't get so burnt out. I didn't get to actually relax over winter break, so I really look forward to getting everything done so I can turn my brain off and play Halo again xD
    or cooler things, I think the greatest thing that happened recently was that I was able to go to the mall!!!  I haven't been to a mall in over a year (and to the one here since 2019), so I was really excited to wear as nice of an outfit as the weather would allow (it was like 30 degrees lol). And there wasn't rlly anyone there, so that was reassuring. I was very disappointed to find out that the Hot Topic here barely had any mcr/fob merch tho, I was hoping to get a shirt or something :/ I did find something really cool at one of the comic book stores there, this Ojamajo Doremi QPosket!!! For my entire life looking for ojamajo merch retail I've never found anything, so I definitely cried internally when I saw this Aiko and had to get her! I don't think I'll collect all five, but if I happen to see another one out in the wild I will not hesitate xDD It's really wonderful to see a show I love so dearly get the recognition it deserves~ (I'm still waiting for the movie bluray to come out so I can watch it online oof Dx)

     figured that I should totally edit the pics I post for blogs, bc why not :P I use LINE Camera to edit, and I rlly missed using it since I don't rlly use it for instagram anymore. It's def the best editing app out there rn, esp if u came from DecoPic like me and love the purikura aspect of it. ^^ And you can make ur own stickers on there if u don't like the 100s of sets they have, so it's literally perfect and I'll be so sad if it dies like DecoPic did ToT At least u can still use the DecoPic app if u still have it on ur phone. >3>
 
    lso, I bingewatched the new Winx Club show on Netflix yesterday and I actually liked it? I remember being kinda nervous bc of everything going around abt it before it was released, so I'm glad I was pleasantly surprised ^^ If you think about it as it's own thing, it's actually fun to watch and I legit got invested at times. I watched it with my friend that I watch Buffy with, and we basically had the same level of attachment to the original show so it was cool to see what he thought abt it. They did way more than I thought they would in six episodes, so I'm rlly wondering where they'll take it considering where they left off. I know that the internet is gonna hate it bc it does have issues, but it was a fun 3AM bingewatch xP It kinda made me wanna jump on the Winx fanart trend, bc their outfits from the original show are rlly fun :P

    ut yeah, that's my dumb update post xP I hope I stick to this kind of post style, it's rlly fun to figure out and put together. I was gonna make a post abt how I did it if anyone was interested (my last private post), but I felt like I was talking abt nothing and it wasn't a whole lot so idk. :/ It's basically just a three-column table, for big things xD I'll prob build on it more down the road when I find more things to add. Thx for reading! ^^

(is it too late to post a new years blog on the 2nd?)
Current mood:  chill

hey heyy :P happy new year guys!  2020 was the actual worst year ive ever lived through, and id like to think 2021 will be better by default, but I dont wanna be too hopeful :/ I've definitely given up on trying to have a real new year's resolution (my first time seriously setting goals was last year, and we all kno how that went >_>), but if I had to make one ig just... surviving? The constant threat of dying because of things out of your control rlly takes its toll after a while so... idk. I just really hope I can make it through this year. I don't really go anywhere but... still. I dunno, when the pandemic started I didn't think it'd rlly get to me or anything (and to be fair back in march we were just expecting to be in a lockdown for a couple of weeks), and I was def wrong abt that. its really weird, tbh. im not gonna lie i didnt have to change a whole lot abt my lifestyle in any serious way (outside of not being able to go to taco bell or the library at first), but it really has a way of creeping in anyway. The constant updates on the myserious new symptoms people can have, the spikes of cases anywhere and everywhere, and the governments blatant disregard for people suffering because they wanna avoid dying. It's... a lot to have running in the back of your head everyday—consciously or not—on top of all the other things you'd normally have to deal with. I pretty much failed last semester and I have to make up a ton of work now... and I actually failed the semester before that after we had to move online. Maybe that says more about me than anything. I'd like to think it's not my inability to handle things and more just... how overwhelming things are right now. If anyone else's been having problems staying productive I'd love to know because I don't think my family rlly gets it, and its rlly discouraging. sorry for getting so personal, but whatever. That kind of thing makes for the best blog posts anyway xD On a better note, I'm still watching buffy with my friend? We just started season 3 and he hates that I still dont like angel xDD but thx for reading, I hope everyone has at least a somewhat decent year? But maybe hoping for even that is pushing it xD
