I have finally figured out how to stay in tune with getting my hands on new Re-ment stuff. I still see a lot of older items I'd like to buy and will, but watching for new things I can get at their regular cost and not the 'blown out of proportion because it's hard to get now you must pay a high price' cost.
So today my box arrived, while I may need to figure out what do to with a few items, there are several items in this set I really like. I have no idea what the name of the set it, but I like it. I thought about just taking photos and posting them, but then a couple of the ladies who don't get camera time around here (and rightfully so, you'll see why) begged to model and show the new items. Being the nice person I am, I am giving them a chance.
Let me show you my models for these new items and I'll let them introduce themselves. You may recognize them (and think to yourself, 'What were you thinking?'), so please remember it's about the product, not them.
Me: Ladies, would you mind? I need to get started. Get over here or I'll just start shooting without you.
Them: We're coming!
Lisa: Hi, I'm Lisa and I will be CO-HOSTING with Tasha today. We're so pleased you can join us.
Me: Tasha why are you dressed like you're about to walk the red carpet?
Tasha: Because I have to put my best foot forward to get more work. Plus a little sexiness sells.
Lisa: Yes, I went a little sexy too. See how I'm wearing these thin straps to let a little shoulder show?
Me: Uhuh. Well, we're not selling anything, we're just showing some things. So let's get started.
Me: Yes, Tasha, you did. Now can you please have a seat so we can get started?
Tasha: Sure. Of course.
Me: Now here's how we'll do this. We'll lay out the items and you ladies can describe the items. Please take turns speaking.
Lisa: Don't forget about this delicious and oh so healthy milk. I know it's milk because there's a picture of a cow on the bottle.
Me: Thank you, Ladies. On to the next group.
Lisa: Yes, cleanliness is a wonderful thing. This little broom is just so adorable. It works for cobwebs and other things you need to use a small broom for.
Me: Yes, I guess it does. Next group, please.
Me: Tasha, why are you holding the flower?
Tasha: So you'll have to get a good shot of me holding it. Plus, I can't figure out how to put it on top of that darn pot.
Lisa: Why doesn't it look like my face is in this shot?
Tasha: Can you just describe that thing in front of you?
Lisa: Well, it's well known to everyone as a garden hose on a hose holder. Isn't it just the cutest?
Me: Yes, it's nice. Next group, please.
Tasha: Yes, and this case right here holds the scissors and that thing in your hand, along with the needles and thread in this box. That cat on the box top is alright too.
Me: Yep. Next.
Tasha: Wait, I think I was cut out of the shot. Can you see my face?
Me: I can see the product nicely. Next.
Lisa: Well, any teacher would certainly enjoy this lovely board with an easy to hold eraser. Also, if you look a the bottom of the board, you can see the two drawers that open and close. They hold the white and pink chalk that come with this set.
Me: Very nice. Next group, please.
Tasha: Umm...did you really just get out of your chair and stand up just to hog this shot?
Lisa: I'm not hogging, I'm just trying to give another view as a model.
Me: Ladies, it's about the product. Let's move on.
Me: Interesting take on items meant for learning. Where's Lisa?
Tasha: I don't know. She seemed to be inching away when I was describing these rulers and trying to show her a few offensive moves with them. I was showing her some really good stuff, but she's a little jumpy.
Me: They are not weapons, Tasha. Lisa, please get back over here so we can move on! Thank you.
Tasha: No, that's okay. I got it. This type of rope also used to serve a purpose for my mother when I used to get a little out of hand. Boy am I glad those days are over.
Me: Thanks for reminiscing. Now let's bring out the coup de grace. The reason I first looked at this set in the first place?
Lisa: It's the most adorable thing! Just wait until you see it!
Me: Well, they won't have to wait long if we go ahead and get it.
Lisa: Aren't they just adorbs? I wish I could take them home. Yes, I do. Yes, I do.
Tasha: AND there is some food and a net. Don't forget about these plant in a jar thing going on over here.
Me: It could make a nice addition to a desk in an office.
Tasha: It could make a nice addition to a salad too.
Me: Maybe, but that's not what I'm planning to do with it. Let's get a close up of everything.
Tasha: So are we going to take another shot of us waving or bowing or something to say good bye. I'm not sure you got all my good sides in the other photos.
Lisa: Another shot waving would be nice. Really cute.
Me: Thank you so much for your help, Ladies, but I think we've taken enough shots for the evening. We got the product done. Please have a good evening and your checks will be in the mail. Thanks again.
Them: You're welcome. Good night.
Thank you for your patience and putting up with today's 'models.' ~ Jaye
