Earl Foolish AW14 - Blodmagi preview
You can now preview the AW14 collection in the webshop. I’ve decided to push the release until wednesday (Sept 3rd). In the presale, all prices will be 20% off what you can see now, and it will last for two weeks. Product names and descriptions will most likely be change and/or updated.
i keep seeing that birdnana figurine on my dash and people asking where it is/what its from and as your Friendly Resident Gashapon Enthusiast id like to let you know that it is the bananainko series from epoch! not sure where you could get them individually, but you can find a few listings for the full set by searching “epoch bird gashapon” on ebay :^)

What do you call a sick eagle?
The Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja)
… is a mostly tropical species found in the United States in Florida and along the Gulf Coast to Texas, and then down through Central America to Northern South America.
The oddly-shaped bill that gives the bird its name is an adaptation to straining small food items from water and sediment. Spoonbills wade in shallow water, moving their sensitive bills back and forth through the water. Small comb-like filters at the edge of the bill capture prey while allowing water to be sieved out. They feed on small crustaceans and aquatic insects, as well as small vertebrates such as frogs or little fish that are passed over by other waders.
Like flamingos, the spoonbill’s pink plumage is derived from carotenoids in its diet, and the brightness of pink depends on the bird’s age and location, as well as general health.
