【初音ミクスイートパンプキンねんどろいどこ〜で】 Review + Video

Hey everyone!

I had made my first pre-order with Good Smile Company a while back and it finally arrived last weekend. Granted, I had intended on making this post a bit earlier but it was a stressful and busy week at work so I didn’t get time to plan like I intended. Anyways, here’s my review of the Hatsune Miku Sweet Pumpkin Nendroid Co-de!

nendroid

My order with Good Smile Company went incredibly well and their customer service is very responsive and courteous. I had an issue where my bank sent me a new credit card without notifying me so I had to change a lot of things including this item. Good Smile Company answered my questions and assured me that once it came time to pay, it’ll be an easy process and it indeed was. Once she was shipped off, I received the box within 3 days and was thrilled to know she was packed firmly. I was very very happy and very very excited.

After unboxing this adorable figure, I immediately fell in love with the details. I’ve only had one Nendroid prior and although it was adorable, it didn’t have as many details as this.  The hair is painted and shaded so incredibly and the candy on the hem of her skirt is A+ to the max. The only qualm I have is that in the photo used for reference, there were tiny bits and pieces in her hair that I adored, but I understand why they were left out.

One thing I did notice, granted I have never owned a Nendroid Co-de before, is that they don’t come with extra face plates or extra arms for different poses. It’s a little upsetting but now it makes sense why the Nendroid Co-de figures are cheaper than actual Nendroids. If I am correct though, Nendroid Co-de figures are meant to kind of mix and match with one another…but you can do that with regular Nendroid figures to an extent, so please! Correct me if I am incorrect…

Overall though, I am so thrilled with my purchase and I would totally suggest that people get this Nendroid if they can find it! I honestly like this module better than the Halloween Miku released during Miku Expo so it was great compensation for missing out on that release. I adore her and I am so happy to add her to my Vocaloid collection!

If you’d like to see me unboxing this figure and assembling her, please watch the video below!

And that wraps it up for this post today! I hope you all enjoyed it and I hope to be back soon with something fun and exciting. If you have a Nendroid or a Nendroid Co-de, leave a comment down below on how you like it or if you have any suggestions on pre-orders! Have a fantastic Sunday and an awesome week guys and I will see you next time!

SimplyMe: Changes, Parties, and Updates

Wow, I thought I posted more in September but I suppose I did not? My bad, guys!!

So, needless to say, this last month has been a bit more hectic than usual hence the lack of posts. I guess I let myself get a bit overwhelmed before getting everything taken care of? I’m not too sure, but a huge thing I was really focused on was getting everything ready to go back to school. After a year hiatus, I felt that I needed to get my butt back in gear and go back to receive my bachelor’s degree which is fine but reapplying for college is very stressful for me. Thankfully, everything worked out and I’m hoping to hear within the next month whether I’ll be accepted into the college or not, but I’m so nervous. ╰[ ⁰﹏⁰ ]╯

There’s also a huge part of me that was struggling with anxiety over everything happening at work, college, and home that I felt so rushed for no reason and just wanted to sleep or relax rather than worrying about the website or the YouTube channel.

changes

However, today I was able to get a lot of things done I think! I made a lot of updates and changes to Simply Taylor Rae! If you notice, the header image has changed and I absolutely adore it. I wanted to leave it simple (obviously) and make it universal to changes on the site. I also made changes to categories; the categories are back up at the top menu to make searching for posts easier, however older posts have been categorized as “older posts” which you can find at the bottom. There are still more aesthetic changes to come but in terms for formatting and such, that’s finally complete. ⁽(◍˃̵͈̑ᴗ˂̵͈̑)⁽

Anyways, let’s move on to updates!

If you were on Twitter or Facebook, I had announced that Anthony and I were planning on attending Nekocon in November to cover the VOCAMERICA concert. Although I would really like to go, that is no longer set in stone due to financial priorities. If we decide that we have the finances to go then there’s a possibility we will be there, however it’s kind of a bad time for us as we have a trip to California coming up along with Christmas so it’s kind of a long shot.

BUT SPEAKING OF CALIFORNIA…yeah that’s a thing we’re doing. I am hoping to vlog as much of the trip as possible, but no guarantees if we can’t find the vlogging camera. However, I will definitely be taking plenty of pics for the site so no worries there.

And finally, let’s talk about this past weekend!

party

This weekend began a bit stressful; we had a 50th birthday party to attend but I also needed to make cupcakes for and although normally that doesn’t sound too hard…it’s difficult when you work full-time and still need to buy supplies and things just were not working the way you’d thought. Thankfully, the cupcakes came out super clean and classy and we did have fun at the party!

Aaaaand, I think this is where I’m going to wrap today’s post! I hope you guys enjoyed this post though I know it was a bit more informative rather than fun, but I really do appreciate you all being incredibly patient and supportive through this process!! (ෆˊ͈ ु꒳ ूˋ͈ෆ) If you have any suggestions for the site and constructive criticism, please let me know!

I hope you all have a wonderful week and I shall see you next time!
