Halloween 2017 Wishlist

People are stepping up their Halloween game this year with some truly spooktacular swag. I’m not made of money, so I haven’t been able to buy nearly as much as I’ve wanted to. Here are some of my favorite Halloween 2017 offerings; I hope you enjoy!

Halloween Bundle on Nicolle’s Dreams – This kawaii witch charm and planner sticker set was too cute for me to pass up. A must-have! She also has really cute zodiac charms and stickers available.

Halloween Exclusives 2017 on Fiendies – Planchettes, spirit boards, and tote bags in the Fiendies signature style. I especially like the Arcane Arachne Planchette and Spirit Board Set though note, as a witch, I do not recommend working with spirit boards.

Halloween Party Collection and Monster Mash Collection by Sharodactyl – This year Sharodactyl has made two awesome Halloween-inspired collections. I bought the Bat Crepe pin, the Halloween Party pack, and the Ghost Float pin; they are all really high quality, too.

Hatsune Miku Trick or Miku – One of the few Hatsune Miku items I own is a Halloween sculpture and I absolutely love it. This figure is stunning and pretty pricy ($150), but makes an amazing piece of Halloween decor. I have never gotten into the expensive statue collecting scene, but were I to, this would be my gateway piece.

Witchy Drops Enamel Pins by Colourfy Me – This is the image up top! This is a really cute set of three enamel glitter pins in the shape of teardrops. They have a matching unicorn set that’s adorable, too.

I hope all of you are having a fun Halloween pre-game! Let me know if there’s anything new this season that you just couldn’t resist.

Re-ment Kirby’s Cafe Time Set

Re-ment Kirby Cafe Time Set

I have vivid memories from childhood of beating Kirby’s Adventure on the original NES. I was at a sleepover at a friend’s house and her dad had his own console so he could play video game golf, to which I was all, “Sports video games will never be popular,” because I was 12 at the time. I place the memory in childhood, even though I was in middle school at the time, but there was something inherently joyous and innocent about the event. Ever since then, Kirby has had a special place in my heart, so imagine my excitement when a Kirby-themed Re-ment set was announced: Kirby’s Cafe Time!

The release date is December 2017 and there are 8 sets in the series:

1. Welcome to cafe! includes a Kirby figure with a tan hat, a candy stand with Kirby-shaped lollies, and a chalkboard cafe sign that reads “Welcome to Pupupu Cafe!”

2. Honey toast (none of the names thrill after Set 1) comes with presumably a honey toast with a Kirby ice cream scoop on top, a Kirby soda float, and a fork and knife set with holder.

3. Cafe table is aptly named as it comes with an adorable pink Kirby cafe table with a star-shaped base. The set also includes a menu, a Meta Knight cake roll, a 1-up napkin holder, and a second Kirby fork. Odd that the fork is appearing in two sets; why the duplicate?

4. Omelette rice is extremely cute and features a Kirby made of rice sleeping under an omelette blanket with a maximum tomato drawn in katchup. That is next level right there. The set also includes a Kirby shaped cup of coffee, a spoon (completing the silverware set), a bell, and a salad.

5. Hamburger set has a Kirby burger basket with star fries, a mug of root beer, and a tray holding a silver pitcher and jar of star candies that’s being carried by the generic enemy that gives you no superpowers. I cannot remember what they’re called.

6. Sofa is awesome and features a Kracko sofa, which is the cyclops cloud that shoots lightning at you. This set also comes with a book, a coffee cup with Kirby shaped foam, and a tray with a Kirby donut and star cookie sandwich.

7. Pancake includes a star chair that matches the cafe table, an elaborate Kirby ice cream float, another spoon, and a frying pan with individual Kirby pancakes with whipped cream.

8. Coffee features Whispy Woods, a super cute Kirby cupcake, a maximum tomato coffee cup, a coffee pot, and a kettle with a hamster on it that reads “kick” for some reason.

Sets 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 are all on my wishlist with 6 being my absolute favorite. With that many to love, I may as well order the whole set. The December 2017 release date makes it a pretty sweet holiday gift, too.

Nendoroid More Halloween Sets: Vampire and Witch

Nendoroid More Halloween Sets: Girl and Boy

Two new Nendoroid More sets are here for Halloween 2017: Vampire (boy) and Witch (girl). Why they’re labeled as a boy and girl set rather than what their costumes are is beyond me, be que sera sera. They are a August 2017 release, and both sets are currently in stock (links below). Nendoroid More is a line of accessories and environments/swag for Nendoroids that are bought separately from the figures. These accessories range from cute (Pikachu case for extra Nendo head) to strange (office clothes bodies and tanks) and are interchangeable with all Nendoroids.

Nendoroid More Halloween Set: Girl Version

The Witch set is up first because it’s my favorite. Witch-themed anything is going to capture my attention, and the idea of being able to dress one of my Nendos up for Halloween is too cute. I hit the pre-order button very quickly on this cutie.

Nendoroid More Halloween Set: Girl Version

The Nendoroid More Witch set comes with a purple and orange plaid base with stand, ghost with stand, witchy girl body, pumpkin pale, witch hat, devil horns, pitchfork, devil tail, and zombie hand. Not shown are stickers of spider webs, fangs, scars, and blood drips that are also included with the set. You can see one of the spider web stickers on the figure above; since they’re single use I don’t see them as much of a selling point, but I won’t complain about them as extras.

Re-ment Little Twin Stars Kira Kira Yume Kawa Cosmetics Set

The Little Twin Stars Re-ment collection grows ever larger with the addition of Kira Kira Yume Kawa Cosmetics. Click on the image above to view much larger. The sets look very cute, and I especially like that the mirror in Set 4 and the table in Set 5 can be combined into a mirrored dressing table that can be seen in the top right of the promo picture above. This series releases in October 2017; the sets are listed and described below, and at the very bottom you can find pre-order links.

Set 1: “New cosmetics” has a really cute white shelf, a compact, 2 piece lipgloss, blush brush, and makeup orb that opens. It also has a LTS makeup pad? thing? with a face on it.

Set 2: “Eye cosmetics,” the eye makeup set has false eyelashes, 2 piece mascara, pink eyelash curler, green candy-shaped bag(?), and gold moon eyeshadow.

Set 3: “Jewelry box” includes a really cute turquoise jewelry box that I hope opens, pink star mirror, LTS brooch, star necklace, and scent diffuser reeds in a star-shaped jar.

Set 4: “Mirror” has a pink mirror, but I’m having a hard time figuring out what the other items are. Maybe the white and purple tart-shaped item is a seat, and there’s a lotion tube, but what the lanyard thing is I’m not sure.

Set 5: “Nail” has the pink and white table that can be combined with the mirror in Set 4, plus two nail polish bottles, what I presume is a nail polish remover bottle, two toe spreading sponges, and an opening orb, maybe with star cotton balls?

Set 6: “Hair care” includes a hair dryer, bow hair band, brush, two star rollers, and presumably some hair product bottle.

Set 7: “Bath items” has a yellow star bowl, blue toothbrush, soap in dish, Kiki and Lala bath fizzies, and Kiki and Lala soap dispensers.

Set 8: “Date” includes a really cute purple and white purse, a bottle of perfume, star earrings, and 2 piece lipstick.

Which are your favorite sets? Will you be getting them all or just picking up a few? I like pretty much every set aside from 6 and 7, which aren’t as appealing to me.
