Happy Easter everyone, hope you all have a great day, whatever it is you get up to!
(Sorry about the picture quality, the weather is really bad and I couldn’t get any natural light indoors, had to process the crap out of the photo to make it usable, then added cutesy effects in photoshop to mask ugly shadows. It’s cute in it’s own way I guess)
Sometimes i think people are imagining those haters just because they like the drama. Where on earth do you guys find all the hate in this community??? everyone is so freeking nice, I seldomly run into unfriendly or hating people. And if, then just ignor them! it’s just one person out of 100 who seems to be a bully.

I would love to see someone buy this Mikuru, finish off the mouth mod to a better standard then give her an awesome new face up!
It’s a shame she’s so expensive for what she is, otherwise I’d be sorely tempted.
Food phobia progress
Tonight for dinner, I had whole wheat pasta with a tomato and basil sauce. Three important things happened as a result.
- I did not pass the sauce through a sieve
- Whilst cooking, I noticed it had chunks of onions and tomato’s in it, but I put on a brave face, tried not to panic and finished cooking it
- I actually ate and enjoyed it! Despite the chunky bits that I am not at all used to
Now I’m not gonna lie, whilst eating it, I did cringe every time when I felt the unusual texture of the onion and tomato chunks, but I stuck with it and kept eating! Never could have done that before~
It’s still baby steps at the moment, but I’m so proud right now. I feel like I may actually overcome this phobia eventually after all!
Is it crazy that I really wish I could buy this doll????
Remember this cutie from back in March? Now she’s for sale! Nooooooooooooooo~
My DDH-06 head came today! So I promptly began modding her of course, I couldn’t contain my excitement!
Looking at her on her own, you might not immediately notice that she has been modded at all, but when comparing directly to the unmodded head, I’m happy with the changes.
I wanted to keep the characteristics and charm of the DDH-06, I chose this head for a reason after all, but I needed it to look a bit younger and more child like. To do this, I have rounded off her chin. reduced the plumpness of her lips and I have made her nose shorter and chubbier.
It is a subtle difference and perhaps more noticeable in person, but it has achieved what I wanted it to and I’m thrilled with her look so far~
So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.
Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.
The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.
Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.
The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.
There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.
The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.
This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.
Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.
why are people buying
signal boost! this is terrible! :(
Idiots really buy this crap? It’s disgusting and cruel to the animals. It would be like keeping a hamster in a sandwich box with some holes poked in it!
Poor fishies :(
