New Outfit For Melon-Pan πŸŒˆπŸ’•

I dressed Melon-Pan up today! I don’t know why I neglected him for such a long time. Monchhichis are so underrated for how adorable they are, and versatile for posing. Melon-Pan can suck his thumb and hold his tail, wear Build-a-Bear and baby clothes, as well as both Build-a-Bear and real baby shoes. His big head is perfect even for adult hats, though he is wearing a baby hat here. Just a cutie.

My love for Monchhichis has kinda been rekindled so I might be looking into getting a dreamie I gave up on long ago.

This is Melon-Pan. I hadn’t taken them out of storage in a while. They’re one of my two Monchhichis and fairly large, can wear newborn clothes. I was talking about Monchhichis with a good friend today and it made me want to hold Melon-Pan again.

In other news, I recently had a package from Sirkus! It had a replacement for my busted mousepad, and an order of a couple wonderful new items!

That pin gives me life… still have to decide what I’m going to use it on.

Today’s β€œdrop everything and panic” moment come courtesy of my baby snails, about five of whom found a way out of their terrarium. After a moment of intensely freaking out, I managed to slip them back in through the holes. Thank goodness their shells had hardened enough to withstand this very minimal, extremely gingerly done handling.

You see, all the babies are near the top of the cheap, poorly made $5 plastic terrarium. It’s going to be hard to remove the lid without hurting them, so when I do it, it’s gonna be to move them to their new, fancier terrarium. I had to find a way to get the babies back in without opening the lid. Thank goodness I managed it. I used some putty to plug the holes for now.

I am very, very tired. Lots of as arting today and lots of housework. It’s not even 11pm and I’m falling asleep as I type this.

Here is hoping tomorrow can be productive too. Goodnight everyone. 🐌 πŸŒ™

A New Friend! 🧸

A package from The Toy Shoppe came yesterday with a lovely new member for my hug! He was an early birthday gift from my friend Nero. Hardy, a new friend, also very kindly helped me to get him. His Charlie Bear name is Waffle, I always rename my bears though, and I don’t have a name for him just yet. But he IS lovely! And has a hint of an adorable smile, along with a very unique fur pattern.

What he reminds me most of is banana nut bread, which I suppose is not the strangest name when I have a Charlie Bear cat named Fish β€˜n Chips, but somehow it’s not convincing me.

I have him wearing this as a temporary outfit:

He can wear Build-a-Bear tops quite well, but he’s kinda bulky bottom-wise so he’s wearing newborn size shorts. I did get him a pair of overalls with a rewards card I had for BAB, because nothing looks as good on bears as overalls/dungarees. And I got him a little hat and bandana on AliExpress, as well as a pacifier I’ll customize with a brooch pin so he can wear it. Once I decide on a name I’ll decorate the pacifier to match. Can’t resist teddies with pacis.

He got to sleep with me last night, which I NEVER do for these expensive bears, but I needed the comfort.

So anyway the last few days have been work work work, nonstop, so I’m busy and tired and my arm/wrist are killing me. So I’ll end this post here. I hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Oh and please guys. Even if the economy is reopening please keep in mind COVID-19 CASES ARE UP. THEY ARE WORSE NOW THAN BEFORE. You are in danger still, don’t go out unnecessarily, wear your masks, if you must go out for work or whatever protect yourselves, even if people laugh at you, please remember it’s actually worse now. I don’t want you all to get sick or die or sicken family members and feel that guilt. Please, be careful.
