Aight, so it’s that time of year again… or I should say, it should have been that time of year in January but you know. Behind in everything as per usual, blah blah blah. In my (very many) defense(s), I got ass kicking colds almost back to back from the end of December to about uh… prolly a week or so ago, so it threw me off my game.
Like it always does.
Anywho, so better late than never amirite? A look back that goes into all my plans from last year, what didn’t happen (pretty much all of it) and my plans for this year; doll wise, collection wise, life and other things wise, etc.
Then it’ll be onto other things.
First up – this was the post from last year on my plans… for last year -> H E R E
And here’s the things that did and didn’t happen from that list and not from that list ~
Things that did happen ->
- Paid off and brought home Exos
- Brought home The M Theory (changed from a FL Mari to a FL Aki)
- Was gifted Smol Shura’s head (by a wonderful Birb)
- Got Smol Shura a bod (not the original one I wanted, but it’ll work)
- Chibi Fuan came home
- Chibi Fanuel and Chibi Taz were put on Layaway in December
- Bal’thial was sold
- Glitch was sold
- I found some semi stands at the outlet during trips (still haven’t bought proper ones though)
Things that didn’t happen ->
Sooooo, yeah, surprisingly I did manage a few things, and even more surprisingly, my sold dolls (not as many as I wanted) included Bal’thial, who was actually a little easier to let go than I originally thought he’d be (I think it’s because it happened so fast though, I didn’t give myself much time to think on it before he was gone…)
Other things on last year’s to do were thus ->
- get all to date RP books in print
- actually complete this year’s ADAW project without having to cheat the end pics
- do more outside shoots
- get back in the habit of doing doll photography in general
- Get Angel Hunt back up and fully operational again
- Get at least ONE backdrop/set done
Addressing this point by point…
- I got some books printed, but not all of them like I’d wanted (Got AU2 book done, Ish’talla Books 01 – 05 done, FE35 books done, one Jun and Zeph modern day done and… I think that’s it?)
- I fell off the ADAW wagon. Again. But! I did almost complete it, as you can see HERE (I ended up with a few cheats and was 3 pics short. Not great, but not bad either all things considering)
- Failed. Unless you count the porch, which I’m not.
- Failed also. I fell into a pretty bad depressive slump halfway through the year (relating to life things and Mister’s cancer mostly) and failed a lot of things because of it
- Failed also. For the reasons above.
- Haha, Failed. Also for the reasons above.
So, moving on. For the next part of my last year’s list, and since it’s so long, I’ll go over what I did manage out of it collection wise.
Managed in 2018 ->
- MLP G1 Dainty Dahlia (Chibi found her at the outlet for me!)
- MLP Coco Berry and Banana Surprise (Found Coco Berry at the outlet, then for xmas last year the Rabbit gifted me a better condition her a long with Banana Surprise! So my Sundae Best Ponies are complete, save a few of the accessories. Whoot)
- Got various NumNoms here or there (but nothing was completed)
- Gimli’s Ax was got!
- Found a ton of faceplates for Nendo!Me at the outlet!
I didn’t manage anything else in that long list of things I had planned, but ehhh.
Okies, so since all that nonsense is out of the way, lemme go on about my plans for 2019. The same exact disclaimer goes that I had for last year -money aside, poor yadda yadda, blah blah blah.
Dolls. Here’s the what’s what for this year (or the what’s planned?)
Dolls to get –
- Body for Rebirth Taz (still deciding on what bod)
- Legend Doll 70cm long nail jointed hands in WS for Jenova
- Legend Doll 70cm short nail jointed hands in Grey Skin for Nexus

- 1 Buff Unoa headback in Fresh (for Sentry)
- Doll Legend 45cm jointed hands (long nail) in normal/yellow for Smol Shura

- Find a Chibi!Lillith
- Fairyland WS MNF Shiwoo (or if failing that, a Seorin) for Hesue’s Other (ala carte, normal body otherwise the Luts version MNF Shiwoo) -Or, if the event head coming with Chibi Fanuel, Taz and Fern ends up working out, then a MNF bod for him in WS
My grail remains the same, only with an addition of another ->
- Souldoll Shiva, four arms in Gray Skin to be the Death God
- Dollmore Trinity Doll Narcose Dream Lumie
Haha yeah, but you know. One can dream?
Basic doll plans this year are ->
- Like maybe get those string pullers finally since it’s been 15 years now maybe?
- Jun’s correct eyes from Souldoll finally (pretty sure this is the right number, size has to be 22mm)
- Glass cases (because haha, I so did not manage that last year at all)
- ADAW yadda yadda complete things this time blah blah
- Complete Chibi Land peeps
- Get the Chibi Land mansion together (and all their rooms)

- I need MSC
- Eyes, proper eyes and wigs for all
- Get the RP books done and printed up to date
- Get AH up to date (and maintain it up to date)

So yeah. The things. I really need to get on that.
