April Kawaii & Geeky Wishlist

Hi everyone! It has been too long since I last posted my monthly Kawaii & Geeky wishlist!! This has been because of a combination of my crappy mental health, everything that I've been dealing with in my life for the past few months and not spending much time on social media. I didn't really have much on my wishlist at all during this time (other than ALL THE JUNK FOOD, haha!), however lately I've been starting to feel a lot better in myself and have been more active online. This means that all of the nerdy goodies available in the world have been brought to my attention once more, and I have quickly built up a list of things that I feel I am missing from my life XD So, I thought it was about time that I shared some of the wonderful items that I have found with you guys, & I hope that you enjoy reading! 

1. Card Captor Sakura or Sailor Moon Selfie Stick How cute are these selfie sticks!? I really want to start vlogging this year, hopefully starting when I'm on holiday in Portugal next month, and I am in need of a selfie stick to add some snippets of myself into my vlogs. Of course, I like to make everything in my life as kawaii as I possibly can, so I'd love a selfie stick fit for a nerd, VS a boring standard one! I personally prefer the Card Captor Sakura version. How about you? 

2. Care Bears X Kidrobot Blind Box Figures My regular followers will know that I am obsessed with blind boxes, and so it's not hard to imagine how much of my life is spent on YouTube watching videos of people unboxing them! These gorgeous vinyl figures by Kidrobot (a brand that makes ALOT of awesome blind boxes!) were recently brought to my attention on a channel called Banana Peppers, which is a side channel by the well known vlogger Graveyard Girl. I love her videos, mostly because of her quirky & fun personality, and I really enjoy watching her unbox things! You can check out the video for yourself here :) I really like the re-imagined style of these Care Bear figures, which were created for the 35th anniversary of the cartoon; the artwork is so cute! I grew up watching the Care Bears so they will always have a special place in my heart. Funshine Bear was my favourite. If you were/are a fellow fan, let me know in the comments which was your favourite! 

3. Vikings 'Ragnar Battle' Tee I am a big fan of the History Channel series Vikings, and even though I have been watching it for the last five years, I am yet to own any merchandise! (Pfft, and I call myself a fan!). Up until I spotted this awesome band tee style shirt, the only Vikings merch on my wishlist had been the Funko Pop's of my favourite characters. However, I now have a mighty need to add this tee to my wardrobe! I love the design with it's mainly blue colour scheme, and a huge print of Ragnar Lothbrok, the leading character played by the gorgeous Travis Fimmel, on the front. History geek me really likes all of the weaponry featured on the shirt, and I'm not gonna complain about the image of a topless Rolo Lothbrok on there either ;) Another thing that's cool about this tee is that there's also a print on the back, of a battle shield, swords and the TV shows logo. For only £16.99, it's a great buy! 

4. Gatomon Pin Badge by Megan Allison Design I have been following Megan Allison on Instagram for a while now after spotting a pic of her gorgeous Palmon pin badge. I immediately had a nosey at what other pins she had available and came across this Gatomon one! I watched Digimon as a kid, and although Pokemon always wins for me in the Pokemon VS Digimon battle, I did love the show and my favourite character was always Gatomon. How about you? Are you Team Digimon or Team Pokemon? Last year at Comic Con, I spotted an amazing cosplay of Gatoman and it re-ignited my love for the Digimon. Now that I will soon by able to display my pin badge collection, I feel like I can finally start getting all of the wonderful pins I've had my eye on for months, including this pin! I love the kawaii-style of this pin, the pastel colouration and all of the stars! *totally can't stop humming the Digimon theme tune*

5. Kirby's Dream Land Nendoroid Figure Over the last few months, I've been going through tough times and one of the things that has helped to keep me distracted from those horrid depressive thoughts has been YouTube. I can get lost into it for hours, and there's so many topics that I enjoy watching! One of them being room tours and shelf/bookcase tours featuring people's nerdy collections. I adore vinyl figures and I have been collecting them for many years now. I mostly have figures from blind box series by TokiDoki and Funko, but I have always wanted to branch out and get the more ornamental (and pricey >.<) figures of my favourite animation characters. Until last year, I had always shared a bedroom with my sister and this meant I had limited space to display all of my things. I therefore couldn't justify buying figures that were just going to stay in their boxes and be packed away under my bed or whatever. Now that I have my own bedroom and can fill the wall with shelves and have bookcases, there's nothing to deter me from saving up for the Nendoroid and Amiibo figures I want. Watching collection videos on YouTube has highlighted to me that there are some adorable Kirby Nendoroid's out there, and I think that's where I am going to start my collection of figures that aren't from a blind box. Not that I'm gonna stop collecting those :p 

6. Spyro the Dragon Phone Case by BluePotionCo Did you guys hear the news about the new upcoming Spyro game!? If not, they are remastering the old games for Xbox One & PlayStation 4. How exciting! All of us 80's/90's kids can relive our childhoods & the kids of today will also get to experience this awesome game franchise! I've been reminiscing about Spyro lately and wish that I could find my old PS1 games, but I have no idea where they are packed away with all of my stuff! Eeek, the joys of decorating. I was browsing through some of my favourite online stores the other day and came across this fantastic Spyro case by BluePotionCo, and I've fallen in love! I have had a phone case from this store before, a Pokemon case that you can read all about in this review I wrote if you're interested, and I was super impressed by the quality of it as well as how much more adorable the chibi character artwork was in person! It's about time that I invested in a new phone case, and I would love for it to be this one :) I think it's so great that it even includes the little sheep from the game! 

7. Calcifer Bath Bomb by SynthesisStudios Oh my gosh! I found this amazing bath bomb through Shut Up and Take My Yen, and I just NEED it now! If you've never heard of this before, it's a website that basically shows you all of the fabulous nerdy items that are available on the internet. I am addicted to bath bombs! I use them so much that I now feel really weird whenever I get into a bath that isn't colourful XD Who else has this problem? hahaha. I am always seeing awesome fandom bath bombs online, and I still haven't ordered any. But this Calcifer one might change all that because I really want it! The only thing stopping me right now is the price of shipping from the US, it's super expensive :( That aside though, this bathbomb looks so much like Calcifer, who is a fire spirit/demon from the Studio Ghibli movie Howl's Moving Castle,  and is almond scented which I'm all about... who doesn't want to smell like marzipan! The bath art that it creates also looks really cool. 

8. Guillermo del Toro Funko Pop! Vinyl I am super happy that they have finally released a Funko Pop! vinyl figure of this amazing director! Del Toro has been one of my favourite film writers & directors ever since I watched his horror-fantasy movie Pan's Labyrinth (2006) as a teenager. It has been one of my favourite movies ever since, and each movie by Del Toro that I have seen since then has been amazing. I really enjoyed his 2017 movie, The Shape of Water. It was weird and wonderful, which is right up my street when it comes to movies/TV shows. Along with the recent release of Pop! figures for The Shape of Water was this one of Guillermo himself, and I would love to add it to my ever-growing Funko collection. If they could now release some Pop's for Pan's Labyrinth, that would be great!

Thankyou for reading!
