Berlin, Berlin…

Hello dear readers!

Last week I posted about my customs ->#198 and was in panic mode to finish my customs #199 & 200. This week I’ll be telling you all about what has happened since, mainly about my birthday trip to Berlin (since it took up most of the week in between) and a little bit about a few new customs. I’ll also let you in on a few secrets about what I have in mind for my next 100 customs! ;)

First off, I’d like to present my super special customs #199 and #200: Zelda and Link (Wind Waker style)!

I think they turned out super cute! ^_^

I made them both from the same base figure, the musical note panda bear:

Both horses are for sale but my Link and Zelda will stay with me :)

Here is a photo of my 100 first customs and my customs 101-200:

I can’t believe I’ve made this many already! Most importantly, I’m still not bored with it so I definitely want to keep making more! ^_^

Anyways! On to my birthday trip to Berlin! It was absolutely amazing, as always! My sister, her husband and my fiance had planned an entire day of activities for my birthday and it was brilliant! I had so much fun!

My birthday started with an amazing breakfast with my fiance at Chipps. We had a proper breakfast with eggs, waffles, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and sparkling wine! It was so good! ^_^

After breakfast, me and my fiance went to Modulor, a crafts shop in Kreuzberg. It’s ridiculous, you can literally find anything that you need for whatever crafty hobby you may have! It was great, though the customer service was a bit snobbish. After that, we were joined by my sister and her hubby and together we went all the way out to Neukölln to visit the cat café (Pee Pee’s Katzencafé). The cats were pretty aloof (as always) but they were cute nonetheless :) I had an amazing raspberry cheesecake and a cup of coffee and it was all very nice!

After stuffing our faces with cake, we went to TeamEscape in Kreuzberg. The concept is that you have one hour in a room full of riddles and hidden clues and if you successfully solve the mystery within the hour you get to escape. Not going to spoil the details of what we did there, but I can tell you it was great fun! :) We managed to escape within the hour so it was definitely a success!

After solving the mystery we took a well-deserved relaxing pause in a wonderful new bar in Potsdamer Platz. It is called Fragrances Bar and the concept is that you choose your drink after smelling the perfumes that the drinks are based on. It was a very interesting experience! The service was lovely (they even brought me a little birthday cake!<3) and the drinks were served with some very interesting props!

My drink was served in a very strange little box with fake leaves. It was almost like a work of art!

We moved on to have dinner after the drinks and finished the evening in a bar close to our hotel. It was a very successful birthday indeed! ^_^

Other things we did during the trip included visiting the Gardens of the World. I took so many photos there! Here are my favorites:

During the last day in Berlin I found a shop where they sold G2 LPS for 1€ each (= really, really cheap!). Since I am 25 years old and FABULOUS, I didn’t care about the people staring and just bought the entire box of blind bags that they had :D One of the perks of being an adult is that you can do whatever you want with your money ;)

All the LPS I bought :)

Anyways, back to reality and customizing! My new customs have been coming along very slowly since I have had so much correspondence to answer after my trip! I finished my custom #201 yesterday because it was already base coated a long time ago.

Here is #201 – Shiny Zorua:

Some new head-swaps! Shiny Hawlucha (a commission), Froslass (trying to make it because it will be challenging and I love challenges!) and an accidental Bear-Seal (will be made into an original character) :3

Anyways, that’s it for this week! See you again next Wednesday or Thursday! ^_^
