my WDW Sarabi plush arrived!

Postby Gaze » January 12th, 2017, 8:47 am

I apologize in advance that this is a very self indulgent thread, but I'm so happy to finally have my 'holy grail' item! it's been a years-long search. to celebrate the occasion, my girlfriend and I decided to have a little party. originally we planned not to invite anyone else because we thought a two-person party would be funnier, but I ended up inviting a friend who asked if I'd received Sarabi yet, which then led to me deciding to just extend the invitation to all my roommates (there are 8 of them). it ended up being a pleasant tiny gathering.

and now, some photo documentation of the evening.
Image
the kitchen table, set up and ready to go. festive beverages, TLG party city decor, a cake for Sarabi, and the lioness of the hour - still inside her package fresh from the UK, waiting to be opened, resting atop a marble tray

Image
a close-up of the cake. very ugly, but made with love!!! and of course, made using applesauce in place of eggs, resulting in a vegan alternative for my vegan GF & vegan roomie

Image
after I give a speech explaining Sarabi's significance and finally slice open the package, my roomie pops the champagne and pours everyone a Lion Guard paper cup as TLK songs play off another roomie's phone. TLG temporary tattoos were applied by everyone soon after

Image
Image
Sarabi looks on as the cake gets eaten and a candle burns in her honor. she spent the remainder of the night being passed around and admired, meeting small dogs who wanted to eat her, and having her portrait taken many times on 35mm film.

I'll have to get some shots of her hanging out with my Disney Store Sarabi + baby Simba!

well, thank you all for joining me on this day of celebration....but I really don't want this thread to be all about me. so please feel free to share stories/anecdotes about your own personal journeys obtaining (or trying to obtain) your own 'holy grail' TLK items!!

yep, she seems to be pretty rare judging by the fact that I spent years just trying to spot one for sale, and another one of them sold on ebay for over $300 just a few days ago!!

I cannot stop smiling at this, I want the world to be like this always. You actually threw a small party and invited friends! That's so pure! I love everything about it! And I want in on your friend group, they must be awesome! This is so silly but life's silly and we shouldn't take it so seriously

awwhh, this has me all smiley too!! I actually don't know any of my roommates very well at all, but I was extremely touched and moved by their enthusiasm and sincerity during the celebration. I love making small/mundane things into fun events and I'm very grateful for anyone who joins in, haha :cheese:
