Just wanted to let you all know that I have migrated over to blogspot for my collection posts in the future. Come visit me over there now! :D http://ochibawolf.blogspot.com/
I'm just wanting to let everyone know that I will be going to Japan(Tokyo, to be specific) next month on Aug 23rd and staying until Sept. 6th. I will use this journal to blog about my daily adventures in Japan each day, with photos. I'm mainly going to Japan to shop, so it will still be collection related, and I hope to find some good stuff! I think I'm going to try to be at Mandarake every day before it opens to be the first one in. XD.
To those who have been to Japan, and have any advice/tips for a vegan toy collector, please comment! <3

I got my mini brooch in the mail yesterday from GEanimation. I ordered it from eBay. Click the image to view larger.
It's really tiny! About 2 inches across, and has a shiny gloss over it. It has a regular pin back. Here is another photo of it to comparison with other mini brooches I own. http://ochibawolf.tumblr.com/post/162381
x-posted to sailormoonfans, I apologize if you see this more than once ^_^
Muscara is a online toy store located in Messina, Italy. Selling since 1995, they have a good standing reputation in selling anime goods worldwide. I've ordered over 5 packages from Muscara, and have become accustomed to their procedures and policies, and would like to share my experience with them to you.
When you are ready to check out, remember that this is being shipped from Italy so shipping may not be cheap. The site automatically selects "Express Courier" as the method of shipping, which also is the most expensive. Be sure and select "Registered Mail" for the cheapest, yet still reliable way. I'm only stating this in my review, as one person I've talked with decided against ordering from Muscara because shipping was over $40, when they didn't notice the other option.
I'm sure they are sick of me asking questions by now! Just kidding, but I have asked them at least 10 questions throughout my orders. And Muscara treats everyone with respect and replies to every one in a timely manner(usually same day if you ask early in the day!) I am very pleased with their communication.
Muscara will send you a separate e-mail after your item(s) have shipped. And most the time they ship the next day. Shipping is very slow. But that's expected, since they are located in Italy, and I'm in the USA. So be prepared to wait up to a month for your items to arrive. Most orders are also shipped with tracking so you can check everyday to see if it's any closer to you. When your box arrives, Muscara is very careful to pack your items with the upmost care. I don't worry about my items getting damaged in the mail when I order from them. Note: most packages they do ship, come with tracking. But I've never seen it scan through any place but in the country of Hungary. Rest assured that your package will be delivered. I just think this tracking system doesn't work very well.
4. Problems with your order
I did have one tiny problem with my order, and contacted them promptly upon arrival. They sent me a sincere apology and offered to fix the problem free of charge! This is a professional business, folks, and they take care of their customers.
Pros: Excellent communication, Next day shipping, Careful packaging
Overview - I would definitely recommend Muscara for your Italian toy needs. They strive to please you, and their communication is amazing. Depending where you live, shipping time can take up to a month to arrive, but I promise you it will be worth the wait.
Also....how can you pass up the awesome Italian toys?
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Go order some Italian SM merch from MUSCARA.COM!
