A couple of days ago (March 27th) they finally arrived after nearly 1 month stuck in customs.
So I called my husband and he came from work, in his lunch time to help me out with the boxes that are huge and were at the PO waiting for me. (Ok, let's skip the awful part of paying custom fees!)
It was raining and the umbrella was not big enough for both of us plus boxes. LOL ㋛
Last pic we were getting home, in the elevator. You see? The 2 boxes piled up = 1 human in size! LOL
Thanks to my dear husband I got my 2 b

George Eliot is the pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans (1819 – 1880), an author of books and poems. She used a man’s name when she had her works published believing she would be taken more seriously than had she been published under her own name.
One of her most famous quotes is:
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird, I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
In order to be eligible for this contest, you must photograph one or more of your dolls in a way that you believe best fits the quote. All submissions must be entered into the Delicious Autumn Contest folder no later than Friday, November 2, 2012. Entries will be accepted immediately upon this post.

Ladies and Gentlemen...I give you, the 1985 Argos catalogue: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38301877@N05/sets/72157619206330728/
Yes, that's right, the LAMINATED BOOK OF DREAMS that every child lived by!
Quick explanation for the non-Brits: If you're a kid in the UK, the Argos catalogue is the holy grail of toy based presents at both christmas and birthdays, to the point where you would give your parents your christmas lists complete with the page and Argos item numbers in the hope that making it easier for them would mean a higher liklihood of getting what you wanted!
A while ago, my other half and I attempted to explain to friends younger than us what it was like to see colour television when we were kids because such a thing was almost unheard of if you were an average working family here...it was met with scepticism, so with the help of THE CATALOGUE an

What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
