    Im female, nearly 24 and still live with parents but I was thinking of having like a dark fairy theme to my room (if possible in a non childish way) I just love elves, mystical fairies and stuff. I only have a small bedroom so this elf house and I few figures on horses like at the bottom of the page it would look quite big but do you think Im being childlike or pathetic? My dad says I am but they are only for show its not like Id play with them!

    I asked the question on another forum and most people said I was very immature and childish (quite true) and that I should spend the money on moving out instead. Thing is loads of people waste money by drinking and on nights out Im not a big drinker so why not spend money on something I enjoy looking at?

    A few models, or some well placed art work would be much better than that giant plastic model thing.

    It's your money and your right to spend it on something that you think is worth it and will make you happy. There's no point in taking other people's opinions, it's not like we share the room with you. So enjoy your little Elf house thing

    I personally think it's ugly and a waste of nearly £40, but if it's to your taste and you want it, get it

    Up to you. I think it is vile and would rather spend my money elsewhere, but you obviously don't so just do what you want!

    considering the size of your room and the item, it would look really odd. Perhaps if it was smaller then it would look alright.

    Its not childish at all, if you like the look of it, then go for it. its your money at the end of the day, spend it how you wish

    It's not pathetic at all, but you probably could find something nicer for that amount of money. Have you seen the movie Labyrinth btw?

    OP. I say do what makes you happy. If you like it, buy it. It'd be too childish for me, but then, I'm the mature (boring!) type.
    I prefer the one linked to above to the first, though.
