All posts by Marina Neira

My name is Marina! ๐ŸŒ I am an artist and fantasy writer, born in โ€™83. Youโ€™re welcome to refer to me as she/her; Iโ€™m pan and polyam. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’› Iโ€™m a big animal lover (with four cats and close to a hundred pet snails) and a book collector, with books in almost every room of the house. I have a passion for dinosaurs. Iโ€™m also a furry and a Little in case youโ€™re familiar with those terms. Iโ€™m what you could describe as peculiar. I talk peculiar, dress peculiar, and have peculiar interests, to put it all mildly. Being this way has sometimes made it hard to find people I vibe with, but it has also led me down some interesting paths in life. For commission inquiries please contact me at marina@marinaneira.com

Tama Update! ๐Ÿฅš๐ŸŽ€

Heโ€™s all grown up! Also, I got him the carousel room. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆ

By the way guys, Iโ€™m sorry if my tama spam gets annoying (same for toy spam in general recently) but Iโ€™m sick with a cold and one of my older ratties is pretty close to the end every day, today was the worst yet, this is all that is keeping me from despairing.

Eating and drinking has been hard today. Iโ€™m doing my best.

More Fun Mail ๐ŸŽโœจ

While I was at my momโ€™s, my utterly lovely package from belsartworld on IG arrived! ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒˆ It was full of special little touches that made it really unique and best of all there was a free pin?! What??? ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• I canโ€™t wait to decorate my denim jacket with it all. Thank you Bel!!

โ€ชLast thing to arrive while I was gone was a package that, while not delayed, I feared lost โ€”itโ€™s showed on my daily delivery digest but had never arrived. It finally came, and itโ€™s wonderful! Thank you also for the freebie sticker, fairy_cakes!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•โ€ฌ

Button pins from geeniejay on IG also arrived!! I love them! ๐Ÿ’•โœจ

As well as my crayon patch from CloverHare:

Not that much stuff left to come in the mail now… Canโ€™t wait to iron and sew everything onto my jacket! ๐Ÿ˜

At Mom’s Today ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿง‰

Yay, now my TamagotchiOn shows my custom avatar!

More Tama photos…

Mate today!

I’m doodling a lil surprise / belated birthday present for my poor friend Snow whoโ€™s just having a hecking-no-good day at work. Hang in there, Snow!

Also working on a commission!

More Megaplex Goodies And Other Stuff To Share

Finally got my Megaplex 2019 print from the I Love Megaplex contest framed! Later this year I will get it printed as a massive canvas print but this will do nicely for now. Thank you very kindly to Madshy for such lovely art and to Megaplex staff for, well, everything they do! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Behold my jazzed-up furry princess scepter!! ๐Ÿพโœจ ๐ŸŽ€

As you might recall, it was a lovely gift from my friend Snow. I wasnโ€™t sure how I would display it, but trust me to find a way! ๐ŸŽ€

This one is pretty special and quite the lucky find, as I saw it go unsold twice on eBay and tentatively made aโ€ฆ REALLY low offer, I was sure the seller would tell me to go pound sand, but they accepted! ๐ŸŽ‰

Maybe I should do an unboxing video, but I got commissions to work on and not that kind of time. Iโ€™ll probably do a photo set though.

Itโ€™s so amazing to have something like this, never opened!

Also got a batch of new stickers from Redbubble and a heck of a ton of stuff to decorate (water bottle, pencil cases, a tray) but Iโ€™ll do that when Iโ€™m back home from visiting my mom. Excited about it though!

That last one is like my entire aesthetic in a single sticker!! ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿช๐Ÿญ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒธ

Starting My Tama! ๐ŸŒˆโœจ

Itโ€™s on!!

Heโ€™s literally born unhappy and it took me quite a while to figure out how to please this little princeling.


HIM DO A SLEEP!! I need to, as well… I actually really donโ€™t feel well lol… ๐Ÿคง Hope my guy doesnโ€™t die in my sleep, the baby stage is REALLY freaking needy.

Him grew!!

I’m having so much fun with this thing.

Megaplex Haul And Other New Things

I’m going to be sharing my Megaplex goodies now, as well as stuff that I received either on the days right before or while I was gone on my trip. So, this post is going to be all over the place. Apologies in advance for that!

Let’s start with my TamagotchiOn… it’s here!! ๐Ÿฅšโœจ

I may wait for the little custom case I ordered to arrive before I play with it though, so it doesn’t get scratched (besides, I have work to catch up on).

Also, my ODU package made it safe and sound!

I was really worried because Christopher said we had a massive storm. I pre-sign my deliveries so theyโ€™ll leave them at the door, and Christopher said it was literally submerged in water! Yet somehow still okay. Very relieved!

This is one of the things that I bought with the birthday monies from June, Yookey and Mwako:

It took some time to arrive but itโ€™s MASSIVE and Iโ€™m so excited to read it!

Ok, now for actual Megaplex haul stuff. First, some of the things I got at the con store, plus the deck of cards we all got as a gift:

As you can see, I also got a lanyard, wristband, the glass (yes they made one) and a wonderful water bottle! My everyday one doesnโ€™t fit in cup holders.

I definitely dropped most of my funds at my friend Kitty (Blankit)’s table!

Not pictured here, but shown earlier, is the handmade bag by Kitty that I proudly carried my stuff in all weekend.

I love this lanyard by owlapin on Instagram SO much!

It brings back fond memories of AC earlier this year, when Sammy was giving everyone wiggly worms.

This wasnโ€™t a purchase, but rather, a wonderful present from my little pizzly bear friend, Snow:

While I would love to whack people with it, Iโ€™d hate to break it. So itโ€™s just my own little furry trash princess wand. Thank you Snow!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

These are goodies from Madshyโ€™s table:

I regretted not getting one of Braidenโ€™s big ass bowsโ€ฆ ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ˜ฉ next time for sure!

Not Megaplex related (I did say this was gonna be all over the place) but, slowly my patches are arriving (I wonโ€™t work on my denim jacket until they are all here). These are from patchmommy and silly_rice_shop on Instagram:

Back to Megaplex stuff, here’s some stickers and a cute button from pomgons, MaryMouse tags (I got a new squirrel one too but didnโ€™t take a photo) a tree star sticker by Sirkus and an absolutely perfect crybaby charm, of now-forgotten origin!

I think the artist was PinkushikaArt on Instagram actually, but I canโ€™t find it on their store? I canโ€™t find anything else I bought from them either, though, so it has to be this.

On more official goods, hereโ€™s my shirt and an AWESOME pin!!

Props to Megaplex staff for doing a pin this year. It looks great! Here’s a close-up:

Got some stickers from my birthday buddy Colby!! Thank you Colby!! ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿฆ” ๐Ÿฆ–

One more nerd badge by Madshy, this one is a little gift for a very dear friend who is not a furry, but who appreciates ferrets:

I forgot to include this patch when posting my Crayola Store stuff the other day:

Many thanks to WirehedLaboratories on Instagram for these quality pins!!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Another great Dealer’s Den find were these Tama goodies by hellocutecumber on Instagram:

Couple more patches! The heart shaped one is by richlovefinds on Instagram, and the other one is by thinkpatch on Etsy!

I also got this most excellent birthday present from my friends Henry and KB:

Surely Christopher will loathe it, which makes it 1000% better! ๐Ÿ‘Œ Win-win. I canโ€™t wait to see his face when he gets home. ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you guys!! ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ

Finally… stickers from kikivonbubbles are here!! Definitely some of the most risquรฉ stickers I ever dare put on my stuff ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Iโ€™m pretty selective as to what I put some of these on, for, err, obvious reasons, but I love them. Thanks always for the freebie, Kiki!

OH, OH!! Right as I was leaving and saying goodbye toย Madshy and Braiden, Braiden came running after me to give me this lovely as a b-day present!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐ŸŒˆ Iโ€™m naming her Chantilly! ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฌโ€ฌ

That’s all I have to share for now. It was a lot! ๐Ÿ˜…
