Opinion Prone

My opinions, let me tell them to you.

I preordered this little bastard back in July. Truth be told, not long after I bought him, I tried to cancel my order because he did cost a pretty penny, and I probably shouldn’t have gotten him in the first place. But YesAsia doesn’t allow cancellations of preorders, so I thought I would resell him as soon as he got in. Long story short, I finally got a hold of him last week, but I couldn’t resist opening the package because he was just so damn cute. Just look at that grin! So… I guess I’m keeping him for now, and taking him out back to the woods for photoshoots. ._.

I was a bit surprised at how small he was; I’m pretty sure initial reports of the release had him labeled as a 12″ plush rather than a 9″. He’s also a lot stiffer than I expected. All of the leaves on his body, including his tail, but not including his ears, are made of hard felt. Since there are so many leaves, this means there’s plenty of semi-pointy things poking out of his body, making him not very huggable. The base of his tail is this weird plastic thing, probably to support the extra felt that’s there, and the leaf on his head is sewn so that it twists, which makes me feel like I’ll inadvertently mess it up somehow even though it seems pretty stable. The fabric of his body itself is pretty hard as well, which means he isn’t very flexible and attempts to pose him generally end in failure.

Still, he stands up pretty well, and his ears are really soft compared to the rest of his body. And his little grin just makes it look like he’s up to no good. Ridiculously adorable.

I tied a ribbon around his neck because I’m a gigantic dork. Or something.

Epic sun! Except not really… the sun wasn’t bright enough to get any awesome lens flares. D;

I really wish Leafeon had a bit more flexibility so I could pose him better; it was really frustrating having to change environments so often because there wasn’t much I could do with him standing in place. Still, I guess it looks like he’s enjoying his trip out into the wilderness?

His camouflage is pretty decent!

What’s this? A randomass one dollar happy flower from Wal-Mart?? Some kind of deformed Sunflora?? I dunno!

Then we found a printer that had been abused and abandoned in a shallow creek. Damn college kids.

Then, because Savannah has a disturbing population of hobos, we found an abandoned hobo house in the woods, sandwiched between the dorms and the freeway. :|

I felt kind of weird taking pictures of it because I kept expecting the residing hobo to pop up out of the rags or to come gallivanting down the hill. But there really couldn’t have been anyone there really recently because there was grass and leaves all over everything, so yeah.

Leafeon approves of this adventure, even though his right ear got attacked by little plant spores.

Ivysaur kid figure and Ivysaur Friends plush demand a cameo appearance! D8
