So I got some brownie points tonight...

In our recent trip to WDW I saw just how ridiculously fangirlesque my wife is about Maleficent. Her birthday is 6/13, and I decided to surprise her.

After looking around on ebay, and seeing a few really nice, and SUPER expensive sculptures, I ended up hitting up amazon and finding this : Disney Traditions by Jim Shore Maleficent with Dragon Figurine, 10-Inch

And it is STUNNING


My attempt at cinematic cropping

The details are phenomenal

She loved the gift. I'm not sure where it will end up now, but she's quite happy. I done good.

Between her loves of Dr Seuss, Jane Austen and Disney Villains, I'm pretty sure she'll never be hard to buy for.

I haven't posted in ages... my newest obsession is Disney Infinity. I hope I don't spend so much I can never afford to visit WDW again.
