I don’t know which ones to get!!
I don’t know which ones to get!!
After repeated requests for a Sailor V compact (and after falling in love with these swarovski star crystals), I finally made one! I’m really happy with how this turned out! The swarovski pointed-back star crystals are simply gorgeous. The crystals reflect cool blue tones and have an iridescent shine. Staring into the stars is like gazing into a star filled galaxy! Anyways, they are up for grabs now and will ship in approximately 1 week after purchase!
Oh and there are also Star Lockets, Cosmic Hearts, Crisis compacts and other stuff back in the shop as well!
I discovered Sailor Moon when I was very, very young. Looking up dates now, I think I discovered Sailor Moon in it’s first week or two of Canadian airing in August 1995. I just remember not being in school, that it was summer, and my friend Jennifer was scrolling through the channels on the tv she had in her room.
All I seen was a quick flash of the Senshi across the screen and I done something that I STILL don’t do today. I told her to stop, and flick the channel back. She turned it on, I asked what it was, and she said “It’s Sailor Moon, it’s stupid, you won’t like it.”
And so I forgot about it.
Maybe 2 years later, potentially 3 or 4 I rediscovered Sailor Moon. Jennifer and I were no longer really friends. I had moved to a new house with my family, had my OWN tv in my room, and done the same thing every kid my age done after school. Ran home as fast as I could to catch Sailor Moon before it started.
I went through phases. There was a time where I thought I was growing out of Sailor Moon and kids things. I sold off the toys I owned, played outside more, and got into drawing in a way that meant I wanted to improve… except I kept drawing Sailor Moon.
During school I took art classes that forced me to deviate from Sailor Moon and into different forms of art. I discovered shows like CardCaptors, Pokemon, Yugioh, and Digimon, and drew all of those (my brother latched on to DBZ).
In grade 9 I discovered that there was a local anime convention called Animethon in my city. That summer I dragged my parents along, discovered that I was in love with it, and returned 2 years later as an artist in the Artist Alley. Though it wasn’t as prominent or relevant then, I was there because of Sailor Moon. I had brought in some Sailor Moon art to the year I went with my parents and asked the artists (whom I thought were all industry pros lol) for advice, and then later, if they thought I could handle the Alley.
9 years later I am gearing up for my next Animethon Artist Alley. I travel around my city and province to at least 5-8 conventions yearly as an artist, patron, or panelist. I’ve built a collection of Sailor Moon and anime merchandise that’s 400 items strong not including fan made items and posters I’ve collected over the years I’ve spent in Artist Alleys. For 2 years now I’ve been hosting Sailor Moon panels related to the new anime and 20th anniversary.
If it weren’t for Sailor Moon I never would have begun drawing anime. I never would have bothered with conventions, I wouldn’t have my collection or my panels. I also wouldn’t have the large group of friends I have made during my travels. Dozens of artists, cosplayers, and Sailor Moon fans that I glady smile and wave at while I’m at events or simply walking through my city.
Sailor Moon is the reason I am who I am today. The series helped to teach me great values when it comes to my friends and family. To not be embarrassed because of what I love, and to be a kick ass “geek girl” because I can be!
I am dedicated to many things, but Sailor Moon is my first animated love.

Oh boy. It’s that time again! Guess that means I slacked off in February ( I only posted 1 review!!). I spent the first half of February busy, and the second half sick. Here’s hoping March isn’t that way. I’m outta vacation time =(.
February, collection wise, was not the busiest, but it wasn’t particularly slow either. I received my rather large January order from Amiami after doing battle with…
