MCM Haul 2016!

29th July 2016

So for my third and final MCM Expo post from 2016, I will show you what I took back home with me!

So, to start off I wish show you the very first thing I got my hands on, It is the Obama Llama Card game! I have wanted this game ever since I saw Dan And Phil playing it on youtube (You can watch them playing it here).

Its such a fun game to play with friends as long as you don’t mind looking a bit silly! They also came with some Special London MCM ones, which was a great extra!

The next thing I brought was by far the largest item, its my fat chocobo plush! Me and my boyfriend have said we were going to buy it ever since we saw it a few years ago at the Square Enix Store, luckily we managed to get the very last one when we arrived, I was so happy. He has got to be the cutest plushie in the world!

They were selling these little bags with either randomly picked Japanese Candies or Plushies and it comes a variety of different sizes depending on how much you wanted to spend… I can honestly say I mostly brought it for the cute backpack it came in, but I do love the 3 little plushies and post I got 🙂

However, I seriously love this little dog coin purse.. So much adorable-ness!

The next two items are Jewellery, they are two beautiful necklaces from the shop Baku Forest Studios (check the shop out here). One is a narwhal, which is hand painted on wood, and the other are little plants in a glass dome, which is made out of plastic. I think they are both so well made and beautiful, and I will definitely be buying something else from their shop soon!

The next item is one I went to MCM Expo KNOWING I needed. And it is this, a beautiful black Sailor Moon Eyeliner. I’ve actually heard great things about this eye liner, and it lasts so long and has such a fine point. Not to mention, its adorable packaging is another big plus!

I said to myself, no figures this year as my collection is starting to get a little too big for me to have room for.. However, when I saw this little Frank Woods Pop Vinyl, it reminded me of my school days where I just couldn’t get enough of Call of Duty! I can’t say I’m up to date with the current games, but Black Ops 1 and Modern Warfare 2 have a special place in my heart. Such fun!

Whats next on the list? Something I could do with, which was a new coaster for my morning cup of tea on my bed side table. I am madly in love with DC Bombshells, honestly they are just my idea of perfect. Although I love all the characters, I settled for this Batgirl coaster from Forbidden Planets stall!

The next thing, something more delicious! These cupcakes were just too tasty looking to resist, and were eaten pretty quickly… Unfortunately, I have no idea what the name of this stall was, but if anyone knows please let me know!

I also got this little needle felting set. I’ve wanted to try my hand at this for a long time, but thought it would be too complex from what I’d seen from some peoples creations. A lady at a stall was selling so many needle felting equipment and I was interested straight away. I said I’d never tried it before and she recommended me this little beginners set. Hopefully my tiny piglet will look similar to the picture, although I doubt it haha.

And last but not least, a cute Zootopia fan art post card I couldn’t stop myself from buying as well as a Manga Portrait an artist did of me and my boyfriend! I’ve never seen stalls doing this before, but so many artists were offering to do portraits this year. I think its such a fantastic item to bring home with you to remember a fun trip to MCM Expo.

PHEW! I guess I overspent again this year, but it so hard to resist when you see so much stuff you like, and knowing you may not see it again any time soon.

Thanks for reading! – Ellie
