Nuestra Señora de Alderaan

Braved the Manila Christmas gridlock to catch a screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi last Thursday. A year after her death, I am still mourning Carrie Fisher. There was only one way to deal with all these sads that I’ve been sitting on for over a year, of course.

So I spent most of my Saturday drawing my feelings. I would have finished it in one sitting too, if I didn’t have a Christmas dinner to get to in the evening.

The tablet still frustrates me, mostly because I’ve been trying to paint the same way I do traditionally and that isn’t working out for me. I have to unlearn to learn, but I think this came out pretty well regardless.

My Army of Artoos

I got my latest Artoo last Saturday, at the Christmas Toy Con which reminded me that I needed an update of the last photo I took of all my astromech droids.

This photo was taken with my brand-spankin' new Lumix LX5 heee~

I never really go for just figurines because I find them a little redundant to collect, so I like looking for the ones that have a double purpose haha!

  1. Walkie-Talkie (comes with a C3PO one)
  2. Soda Can holder. (Pepsi *hissssss*)
  3. Star Wars MicroMachines Transforming Action Set R2-D2/ Jabba’s Palace
  4. Lunchbox from Jolibee
  5. Pez Dispenser
  6. Water gun from Burger King
  7. From the Star Wars The Legacy collection with light and sound
  8. My only real figurine. It was free from one of the gas stations (I don’t remember which) here when the digitally remastered original trilogy was shown in cinemas.
  9. Keychain
  10. PET bottle cap
  11. Headphones 8D
  12. Opens up, has a Princess Leia holding a blaster inside.
  13. Bag ornament thing. From McDonald’s.

The Pez Dispenser’s the newest one. I’m already out of Pez. Do candy stores still sell just refills? I haven’t seen those in a really long time.

I was actually supposed to write about all the issue #4’s of my pull list, but Batman #4’s just arriving tomorrow so that’s gonna have to wait.

Lightsaber Rider!

Guess who just won herself a pair of Kotobukiya Star Wars chopsticks?

I am the Walrus. I also must be the world expert in taking unflattering photos of myself.

I had been  lusting after these for a while now so when Rotch announced she was giving away 2 pairs on her blog, I pretty much spammed her comments box with entries.

My 5th raffle entry won me the Darth Maul set! Yay!  Which is awesome cause I never win at raffles. Ever. This is probably my first. The other pair that was going to be given away was the Mace Windu set, which would have been awesome too because then it would match my Mace Windu lightsaber toy.

What makes the Maul set the most badass of all the other sets  is they have magnets at the ends and you can stick them together to get Maul’s signature double-bladed lightsaber yeahhh. It also comes with a matching Star Wars chopstick rest. Yeahhhh.

I also realised that I’ve been holding chopsticks wrong all my life because when I use these, the magnets stick together hahaha. Just as well, these are too pretty for everyday use anyway. 😀

Again, many thanks, hugs and kisses to Magnetic-Rose.Net for making this very dorky fangirl very happy. XD
