And here we have a wild Keit in her natural habitat – sharing her obsessions with passionate drools and borderline madness in her eyes. I’m sorry it has come to this, but I shall stay silent no more! I have been waiting for The Witcher Wild Hunt for 2 years and now that I finally have it in my sweaty hands I had an itch to share it with my most favorite people in the world – my online friends!!! So this monthly favorites post will be slightly different than my usual ones, but if you stay till the end I’ll not only bake you a pizza, but I will sprinkle it with a magical ingredient that transforms into a Tom Hardy clone who cooks, does laundry and occasionally gives you cash. Is that a deal or what? Okay so….
Everything started with my absurd luck to be born in Bulgaria. If you are born in Bulgaria you have two options: accept your faith that nothing ever good will come out of this, or try to struggle your way out of it and migrate to Alaska. For now, I have chosen the former and as a result, I was left with no option to preorder my Witcher, since in Bulgaria they only offer the game, not the Collector’s edition. Not only that, but the Collector’s edition was already sold out almost everywhere in the fucking wold. After much scanning the internet accompanied by heartbroken moans, of the sort of: “Whyyyy is the world so daaaark???” *insert sound of sniffing and crying* I finally found what I wanted, but it was situated in Finland and they didn’t have international shipping. Enter Lara!
Lara is a fellow blogger with an impeccable fashion sense – mix of vintage and modern pieces, a stunning use of colors and quirky accessories for garnish. Check out her blogsie, it’s a must see! I pleaded Lara to order The Witcher for me and ship it my way when it arrives at her door. You might have guessed already, Lara said yes, and thus I got my hands on The Witcher Wild Hunt Collector’s Edition this June. And here we have it ladies and gents!
My post office is close, but after I dragged this colossal box thingy home I had muscle strains the next day, so I can only imagine what it must have been for Lara since we’re both skinny (and beautiful, duh). Not only did she send this huge thing, but she also included bonus gifts – her handmade jewelry which she sells on her Etsy store. She sent me these radical nerdy brooches and a wine bottle necklace.
I’ve been thinking of spicing up my outfits with brooches for a long time, but I was too cheap to buy some, so I was super happy when I saw the ones Lara sent. No comment for the wine bottle necklace, you all know I love drinking….nuff said! Check out her store and get your hands on some snazzy jewelry – including awesome sparkly dinosaurs & coffee rings! ^_^
Thank you Lara for everything, I will always appreciate and never forget what you did for me!
And there you have it, my teary story worthy of an Oscar of how I got my Witcher! I hope you’re still alive and awake, because it’s time to show you the meat and potatoes of my life – The Witcher Collector’s edition goodies!
First…, what is this Witch…er..? Thingy? The Witcher is a series of fantasy novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski which CD Projekt Red ingeniously decided to make into an RPG game. To become a witcher, you are taken as a child and go through an extensive mental and physical training, including use of high toxic alchemy, which only a handful of children survive through, only to be left sterile in the end. This makes a witcher a powerful mutant who makes his living by killing all kinds of monsters, often saving people’s lives but regularly hated by humans because of his mutations (X-men anyone?). The story centers around our main protagonist Geralt of Rivia – the most sexy bad ass witcher alive! And here he is, in all his glory, killing a God damn griffin!
The first mouthwatering piece of the Collector’s edition is this hefty statue of Geralt! It’s quite big, the craftsmanship is exceptional and even though his face is a little off with a peculiar empty stare, I am absolutely in awe by it!
Moving on, we have a curious cat and a luxurious case which holds more treasures inside! Shall we see what’s inside? Do I hear a yes?
– Leave us alone Keit…
I hear a yes! So be it!
– Leave us alone Keit…
I hear a yes! So be it!
Inside we have a luxurious art book, a lavishing CD case, soundtrack and game CD’s, as well as the bad ass Witcher wolf medallion.
There is also a map of the world of the Witcher, which btw is huge, haven’t even gone through 10% of it, some Witcher stickers, game manual and a personal note from the developers, I’m going to cryyyyy!
A close up of the art in the art book. This is Triss Merigold a sorceress and my favorite romance of Geralt. There’s a lot of sexy times in this game and barely any censorship, just the way I like em!
And to finish this post with a bang, a close up of Geralt’s medallion. It’s very heavy and the detailings are lady-boner worthy! I’ll be posting an outfit with it soon!
And that’s it for today. I hope you guys liked my nerdy June favorites. Also, before I forget from too much excitement, what kind of games do you guys like to play? Have you tried any PC or phone games, or do you like the old traditional ones like Scrabble and Monopoly?
Share dah love!
