I’m back from my visit to my dad’s house so I may as well post the pony merch my mom got me for Christmas
First, she got me a pair of knee high Rainbow Dash socks:
The colors on the tail are weird and as you can see Dash gets stretched out and weird when I am wearing these cus calves are thicker than ankles, but still I do love knee high socks and these are very comfy, not to mention I dig the stripes and the blue on the toe and heel, so I’ll give this one a pass
Next up is this badass Fluttershy shirt:
I was never really intending to get any brony shirts in my lifetime, but man do I love this shirt. First off, it’s Fluttershy who is one of my favorite ponies. Second, my mom knew Fluttershy was one of my favorites (gee, I wonder if it’s cus half of my small collection of MLP merch is Fluttershy related) which just makes it even more awesome. Third, the artwork is in an art nouveau style which is one of my favorite styles of art. The detailing is just beautiful. Fourth, this thing is super comfy and fits really well even though my mom accidentally ordered it in a male’s size instead of female. So yeah, this is basically the best t-shirt gift I’ve ever gotten. It’s nice when your parents get you.
She also got me a funko mystery pony box, which ended up being Lyra:
I wish I’d gotten a different pony since I just got the larger Lyra figure a couple weeks ago, but still I love this little thing. the sculpting is just as good if not better than its larger counterpart, and while I didn’t expect the coat on these guys to be black the paint job is still superb. No weird scratches or smudges out of the box like the larger figures tend to have. She also has her cutie mark on both sides of her flank, which makes me very happy. I’m not too into the whole mystery box thing, so I most likely won’t be buying any more of these things, but I still give these things a strong recommendation to anyone who cares about collecting mystery figures.
Among the non-pony related things I got for Christmas: A Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini (first smart phone, already love it), a DVD copy of Labyrinth, Amazon gift cards, Newbury Comics gift card (will most definitely go towards more Funko figures), pajamas with sushi print, various candies and chocolates, cash, CDs to play in my car, ear buds, a paint brush carrying kit, and a mystery gift from my sister that has not come in the mail yet.
I hope everyone else had a nice holiday, even if they didn’t celebrate anything :3
