Oswald Red

(no subject)

I just bought a Disney Fan Magazine. It's labeled the June issue and showcases a ton of merchandise from the Disney Tokyo and Disney Sea parks.

I've mentioned in the past that some "Mickey Mouse Shorts" merchandise will release sometime in April-ish and so on. Since Mickey has a gigantic amount of merch with many names and promos, it's hard to find "this" version of Mickey.
What is the Japanese name for the Mickey Mouse Shorts? :O
I have no idea how to search for these items.
In this magazine I found the plush dolls I've mentioned in past posts. A lot of the merch from this issue has already been released considering I collect Oswald and I own most of the featured goods.
We haven't gotten any plush or figures for the show so I gotta find these!
I took photos of the pages.
Is there any one out there who could translate and give me a lead on what this set is called, when its released and where I could possibly find it?

My boss hasn't even gotten word about these items. I wish they'd just give them to us. It would make my life a lot easier. XD Oh well.  I really need multiple sets of these. I'm sure most of the crew would want them. Plus, I need that Goofy in my life. If anyone can help with translations that would be sweeeet! I'm so curious to see what else we've missed and if any of my drawing have been featured. Thanks!

Done. I'll be posting this and my shiny Helioptile plush on Pkmncollectors for auction. Maybe sometime before February is through.  It took me awhile to finish this since I'm currently moving. I was tired of seeing a floating head though. :>

    Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Collection Site Launch!

    So, we've got two weeks of waiting until XY come out in October. None of the new promotions have caught my eye and I'm doing pretty good with my Sylveon items lately. She only has a few items I need to get but they're easily obtainable. So I thought, what should I do until XY came out and I can finally pick my bundle of gen6 pokemon to collect? Well, I do have other collections I've been neglecting. I started looking for new merch for some and BAM. OSWALD. I've been a little rusty with my Oswald collecting. So after getting a plethora of new gets with the help of rocket_chick <333 I'm hyped. I've been getting everything from California Adventure but stuff for him only comes out once in a while there. Then I look on ebay to see if any Japan sellers are auctioning anything. Nope. Nothing really or its stuff I already have. Then, I thought. Lets check Y!J juuuust to see whats out there. Oh maaaaan, I hate how America doesn't get any of this. ;A; I mean, a rug, Ortensia stuff! New plush! I had to make a shopping spree for the little guy. And it felt so good. I missed hardcore collecting him. In my down time I finally came to the conclusion to make an Oswald collection site. :D

    It's under construction but its pretty much set, I just need to take pictures of a few items. It has a page to learn more about Oswald, one about how Oswald Merch has progressed since getting his rights back and more about his gas station in California adventure. :D I know there are a few LJ friends and pkmncollectors who also collect him so please let me know if I'm missing anything or if you want to affiliate. <3

    Check it out even if its not pokemon ^^;

    Linoone Pokedoll

    (no subject)


    I'm getting a ton of commissioned custom pokedolls in the next couple months and I've been dying to get a Zigzag.
    The only thing is, I'm not sure what I should get.
    Standing on all fours or sitting? What do you guys think?
    I don't collect a lot of four legged pokemon so it would be nice to get a custom of one. Then again, the sitting one would match with the Linoone.
    Yet, a lot of my customs are just sitting. Then again, if I get the standing one it may be too similar to the UFO if I ever obtain it. Hmmmmmm....

    I still can't get over Moki, I can't belive he's been gone for over a month now....that he's gone in general. The holidays are making me miss him even more and its bad enough we have the same birthday. Which is coming up on the 20th. I know I'll end up crying that day. We usually give him a little dog cupcake with a candle in it to celebrate. I still feel like making one anyway...My mom keeps calling his name in a room only to find out hes not there. It pains me. I'm going home to see him in two weeks. I haven't seen what his yern looks like since I purchased it for my mom. I'll be keeping his collar though. I can't wait to get that.

    It just feels like my family is deteriating and I have very little family as it is. Moki is gone, my sister is so fragile, my mom is barely getting by since she can't walk and my brother might not make it from his cancer...

    This Christmas will feel very empty. I have to try to make it up to my mom and sister so they don't think too much about the bad. I gotta show them a good Christmas. I gotta pull it off somehow.

    What a night......


    It's been a week or so since my art show and I have yet to post the after math.  I'm still waiting on the professional photos to come in so please enjoy the ones my boyfriend, Zach did for me. <3 Once I get those I'll be sure to post more about it on my other sites. 

    On all the days of the week, it rained pretty hard on the day of my show but it totally stopped an hour before it. So it wasn't TOO bad. I was freaking out throughout the prep time, I thought no one would show. It was just the limelight jitters getting the best of me. It felt like I was planning a wedding or something. XD

    I got to draw on the windows of the shop. And no, I did not sneak a Slakoth in there.

    December 20th, 1995 - October 24th, 2012

    Age: 17

    My baby, my sweet sweet baby passed away last night at 9:20pm. He lived just a bit longer just to say goodbye to me....I know it....I can't stop crying. My eyes keep tearing even when I'm trying not to cry.

    Moki had bad teeth, he never chewed bones or let us brush them for him. He was one who wouldn't cry when he was in pain, he was very humble and never knew there was something wrong with him up front. No whimpers or sneezes. About a year ago, we took him for a check up and said that he should have surgery to get them fixed. They told me there would be big risk of him dying while he was under. I didn't want that. I wouldn't live with myself if he died under the needle. They said he'd only live for a month if we didn't. Moki, you're such a trooper. He fought it off with medicines and lived a year and a half later. He was running around, playing, cuddling, being perfectly fine.

    Then two weeks ago, he started wearing out. It was harder for him to walk and he kept sneezing, in multiple spasms of seven or eight. We took him back and they said he had an infection in his nose. It was caused by his teeth. We gave him medicine, seeing as it worked the first time but then the other day he could barely walk, as if he was a puppet. He would stand in the same spot for long periods of time or until we moved him. I could just tell...something was really wrong...

    Then....he just wouldn't get up. He was breathing but couldn't move. We took him to the hospital and the vet said "he was fading fast, he was dying then and there". The medicine didn't work.....the infection spread to his spinal liquid causing him to be unconscious from then on. The doctor said they could do a crucial surgery but it would be a waste of money for me since they knew they'd have a deceased patient by morning. I didn't want to see him in pain anymore. They asked if we should give him the shot. There was nothing I could do.....My mom, sister and I held him one last time......they gave him the shot on his leg. He didn't even flinch....thats when I knew this was it, he wasn't fighting anymore. He was gone....I paid to get him cremated so that my mother can keep him...

    I don't know how to feel right now....I know he was old and it was bound to happen sooner than later but thats what makes it hurt even more. Not everyone can say they grew up with their dog. I was six when I got him. A little fluff as big as my palm. I'm 23 now, not just anyone can say their dog lived till 17, almost 18 by 2 months. My little trooper. He has been there for me more than any person i know. I can just look at him and all my cares would vanish. I remember holding him during the Northridge earthquake. Holding him close under a chair. I remember when I first got him, he was the runt of the litter, when I named him and cuddled with him on the couch our first night together. When he was hit by a car and I almost got hit myself trying to save him. Even after that, he only had a sprained leg. He was indestructible. He's always been there, he was the glue to our family, he was our happiness during all our tragic and hard times. 

    I really don't know what to do now....I didn't go in to work today....I couldn't it was too much for me to handle. I knew people would say "aw, thats too bad, he was a good old dog, it was gonna happen." People just don't know how much this DOG means to me. I'd give up my drawing arm for this dog....He was my baby, my sibling, one of the best. THE best. He's really impacted my life with his presence and no one will ever take that away from me. 


    Here's our last picture of us together....about a week ago before he got sick. I didn't want to take a picture with him on the table. No. I wanted this to be my last memory of him. Just look at him, he looked pretty damn good for 17 and a half. People would mistake him for a puppy. He had the softest bunny fur in the world. It wasn't crunchy or hard. So soft.....siiigh, this happened so fast, in the course of 20 minutes. Then he's gone, I won't see him when I wake up tomorrow.....When I finally thought things were going my way...something like this comes around and punches me in the face....I don't know what to do or feel....I can't believe he's gone....this will be one of the hardest things to get over....right now I just feel so numb, my heart hurts....
     I'll need lots of time to heal with this one....

    My baby...I love you more than anything. You'll never have to be in pain again.....I'll cherish you always....

    I just posted on the community but totally forgot about asking this question, I'll write there if my awesome LJ list doesn't answer it first. I've been on a production cel kick lately. I have cels from pretty much all the cartoon shows I grew up with as a kid and then some. Powerpuff girls, Dexters Lab, Ren and Stimpy, Spongebob, Rocko's Modern Life, Beavis and Butthead, even some disney ones. The only thing is, these are all American shows, I can find any of these easily during my searches. I'd really like to get a pokemon one. I'm surprised I don't have one yet. I'm not all that picky as long as its either Ash alone. Ash and Pikachu together like the one above, pikachu alone, a pokemon I really like or a popular episode scene from the first few eps. I don't care. I feel the need to get one.

    Does anyone have any idea how to search for these? I've never attempted to find anime production cels and I'm not all that sure how and where to start. Maybe Y!J? Give me some leads. c:
