Finally got around to posting the Sailor Moon merch I picked up at AVCon! There wasn’t a whole lot this year; another stall was selling some UFO catcher plushies, but I already have lots of those. I was eyeing the heck out of some really nice framed cels but I couldn’t justify spending over $200 on the one I liked.
But! Here’s what I got instead! Isn’t that giant Sailor Moon plush adorable?? She’s so cute I don’t even care that her outfit makes no sense. She was the last SM plush at a stall and she was AU$25 - Then as I was walking around, I saw another stall that had a whole wall of them… for AU$50 each. Lucky me! Although that stall did have an enormous Diana plushie that I wanted…
… but then I saw the little Artemis purse! Artie is my favourite and it’s just so adorable. (You can’t see it here, but there’s a big ol’ clasp at the back. There’s not a whole lot of room inside though… I guess it’s for little kids who only have a pocketful of change anyway.)
The badges are ones I got from the Artist’s Alley; they’re these ones right here. Don’t they look great? Now that I think about it I wish I’d bought two sets (Rei’s infallible logic; one set to keep forever and one set to show off) but I’ll just be super-careful with this one. I absolutely love the detail that were put into these; and with the exception of Moon’s Crystal Star, I also love how they’re a teensy bit sneaky - like I might be able to wear them and only other Sailor Moon fans would recognise what they were.
