~♥ Mami’s 1:1 Musket Prop Replica Deboxing ♥~

I am ecstatic that I was able to secure a pre-order and actually get the Official Mami Tomoe 1:1 Musket that was released by Movic (it was a Movic and Animate exclusive). Due to some very generous friends & awesome followers who purchased a special print set back in February 2014 I was able to afford it! ♥

Special Thanks to:
Chazzfox
Shampoonyanko
Jonathan Wu
WonderPenguin
And to all those whom helped out but wish to remain anonymous ♥

I apologize for the quality of this video it was a very spur of the moment, despite considering doing it for months, it was a split-second decision right before we went out to shoot because we wanted to record my reaction opening the musket and seeing it for the first time. Unfortunately, I forgot my lav microphone at home and the video was over-exposed because it was very difficult to check the playback due to it being a super-bright day. (plus the fact I was wearing contacts which usually messes with my vision anyway)

Either way I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I did making it! Also I’ll be releasing new photo set from this multi-day mega-shoot shortly! Look forward to it! ^_~♥

I was finally able to hang-up the gorgeous Mami print @Teconator gave me at Katsucon! *.* (I wanted to frame it but I’m lacking on vertical wall-space at the moment > I also took the opportunity to hang-up the Sailor Moon calendar I won in a @KondanshaComics Sailor Moon trivia contest a while ago! :D (they’re both above the desk with my editing station) :3

A little preview from my photoshoot today with EnchantedCupcake <3

The Mami Tomoe inspired box I decorated. ^_^ Points of interest: I used 1 of my spare soul gem casts, the center of the top is gold-leafed, I used a dark brown stain &amp; golden stain for the main parts (in keeping with Mami&#8217;s color pallet). (Better pics to come!)

Tuesday - Thanks to work being awesome I got a half-day even though I had only asked to leave a little early. This gave me a chance to rush home and get some work on cosplay done & a chance to finally pack. Sephygoth & I left around 8pm and drove a good portion of the way before crashing at a hotel for the night.

Wednesday - After leaving the hotel along the way we got to the Gaylord just in time to see a bus load of kids get off. After unpacking the car and settling into our room we went out for a deliciously awesome Valentines dinner together (reservations on actual Valentines Day where we wanted to go was impossible plus we wanted to have more cosplay time on Thursday).

Thursday - After some attempting to make headway on a prop (seriously I have no idea how people make them so fast) Sephygoth got into Katastrophia and I slapped on a wig cause I was having a really bad case of wig hair which made no sense and I had no time to deal with it. We ventured out for a photo-shoot and were promptly shooed away from the gazebo and almost immediately bumped into Shampoonyanko who quickly lead us off to pick-up our VIP badges & chat :3

Then Sephygoth & I went off for a fun little photoshoot before I changed into L.Raptor. Despite some issues with my cosplay, mainly to do with the fact that I hadn’t realized I had lost a little weight, since I made the cosplay. Thus I was having a troublesome time keeping the leggings up and I didn’t have my leather punch to make a new tighter hole in the leg belts to compensate for it. >_< Either way between Sephygoth & I we made it work and we went out for more shenanigans and fun chill time with our new friends.

After some phone trouble & a little bit of tag cause my phone was being a pain that night, I finally got to meet MindFall and we did a quick but awesome shoot together.

Friday - I got into Mami’s school uniform. Sephygoth & I made sure to get up early enough to line-up for the special early Dealer’s room access for VIPs where I snagged the corrupted soul gems for Madoka, Homura, and Sayaka as well as Kyoko’s regular to complete the set. I also snagged a SQ Figure of Mami!

Saturday - Saturday was Amazing! *.* I was part of an amazing Magical Girl group from Madoka Magica & it was so much fun! Truly the highlight of my convention & there was cake too!

Then later, after the group dispersed, I got to run around with just Bleubelle as Madoka & I as Mami in our School Uniforms. So Fun! :3

cupcake0kitten asked:

where did you get the soul gem from (besides kyuubey)

I initially bought it from HLJ on pre-order but unfortunately they were immediately sold-out/discontinued. :(

Since they were sold randomly I ended-up with extras & I have all my extras up for sale on my Storenvy. ^_~
