So thanks to everyone's advice over on the Zombie Zone, I took a little risk today
Yesterday I returned home from boarding school for Thanksgiving Break! As one side of my family celebrates Christmas on Thanksgiving (due to losing a loved one some twenty years prior around Christmas, making it hard to celebrate Christmas for them in December...), my mum and I headed to Toys R Us to purchase Pokemon for my little cousin!
As we were walking around Toys R Us I casually mentioned how I'd received a Draculaura from a lovely member (thank you so much rosierjay
!) over here on the arena and mentioned how my "roommate" at school had really loved her and asked me to purchase one for her as well as she was way for the break back home in China. Though skeptical, my mum said it was alright and I nervously went to walk the Monster High aisle. I was in awe of the many different monsters (they even had the new pirate ghost!), but I couldn't help straying over to the EAH section. First, I looked through the shelves searching for Apple White, but she was no where to be found!
It was then as I pushed back a Getting Fairest Raven that I found a Core Raven Queen. I snatched her up and went to go pay. My mum had happily found the newest Pokemon game for my cousin and for me (
). But as we were pulling out, I had a sudden fear.
She would notice Raven unboxed and atop my shelf when I left to return for the winter semester! Of course she would!
I had to bite the bullet. I had to let her know.
"Mom, I have a confession..." I began trying to keep my tone lighthearted and silly, "What if the doll wasn't actually for (roommate) but...uh...for me?"
I was so nervous I was shaking! Would I receive the same backlash I had for Skelita all those many moons ago?
No! No I would not
"Okay," she smiled, "I mean I'd rather you spend your money on those than (bad mind altering substances)."
"But what about that skeleton doll I had?" I asked, "You said it was weird!"
It turns out those of you in the Zombie Zone were right! She had no problem with Raven, it was Skelita and her bones that had frightened my mum. Not the fact that I had bought my self a doll
I was practically shaking with delight! She wasn't mad! She wasn't ashamed!
So without further ado...Raven Queen~!
Her hair is such a mess
She looks so p-oed, maybe she's wondering when I'm going to purchase
her girlfriend Apple White?
And also, of course, my lovely vampire ladies!
(One which was bought from the arena and the other that was gifted by the very sweet rosierjay
I dunno guys I think an addiction is starting...
