toy whistle

Nearing time for And Steven, but first I MUST share this.

Package delivery has been really strange for the past week or so. I’m guessing it’s to accommodate all traffic at this time of year, but we’ve had stuff left outside that must’ve been delivered between like midnight and 6am. IT’S KIND OF FREAKING ME OUT, but anyway. Such was the case with this particular package. Hubby found it on his way out the door and brought it inside, for which I’m very thankful, given all the rain we’ve been having.

I recognized the name on the return address, but that in no way made me less confused. I opened it, and was entirely unprepared for what was inside.

MORE @moonwhing PLUSHIES

This alone would be amazing, but the included note told me that they were commissioned by WHO KNOWS. Whoever this kind and generous person, they’re choosing to remain anonymous. I can’t thank you directly then, so you’ll have to settle for this public flailing. OH NO RIGHT

First your note, which was just so touching. You may or may not have made me tear up a little, I ADMIT NOTHING. Except that I’m going to keep this at hand, so I can read it whenever I need it.

Then the dolls! AND THEY ARE EVEN MORE AWESOME THAN YOU THINK

Let’s start with tiny pink overalls Rei, which is … I MEAN LOOK AT HER

(MINAKO PLS)

Look at all that detail on the overalls, holy fuck, Moon. The stitching, the pocket, the buttons, THE LITTLE FLOWER CLIP AHHHH. And the overall legs don’t come down far enough, and the turquoise socks, AND ALL I KNOW IS LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Then the Ami plushie, bringing me one step closer to having all my girls rendered in loving Moonwhing fashion. So Ami looks cool up there already, right? BUT WAIT

SHE HAS A DETACHABLE VISOR

WE’VE ENTERED THE REALM OF ACCESSORIES, PEOPLE

Moon, you just get more and more creative with what you can do. Jesus wept, I love these dolls.

And then Usagi! HEART-EYED Usagi! In her high school uniform!

Which, take a moment to appreciate all the detail in that.

THOSE SHOES

IT GETS EVEN BETTER THOUGH

DO YOU SEE THAT SHIT

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS

THE REI WHISTLE

USAGI HAS THE REI WHISTLE AND I AM A DEAD JET WOLF

Thank you so much Moon, and particularly my anonymous friend. They were such a wonderful surprise. I love and will treasure them.
