The cat mask I’ve been working on is finally completed, ish.
I still need to add few things to make it wearable but this is how it’s going to look like.
I’ve been posting the process on my flickr and FB page. Check it out if you’re interested :) I followed traditional Venetian mask making method. It’s even gold leafed! (It made me sneezed a lot…) Cats were considered as good luck/protection because Venice had a lot of plague in history that came from rats. I thought it’s really cool concept.

Hello dolly lovers! I’ve been busy prepping for BCNY2013. October is still far away but for vendors it’s not :) I recently found a project management app, which was exactly what I was looking for. There are so many options out there, but none of them weren’t just right for me. So I was spending quite some time looking for it! Ever since then, my productivity went up! Uhh, I love being organized. It’s so worth it :) Anyways, I’ve been sewing and sewing and sewing… lots! every day. This time I’m aiming more variety than quantities, but hopefully there will be many enough. I’ll see. [...]

I’ve been dolly purchase sober for a bit, but I finally did it again!
I’m flying to Japan in a bit over 2 weeks, so it’s not very smart timing to purchase something vintage from Japan through Malaysian dealer. Ho boy.
Totally no regrets though. She is soooooooo perfect. Can’t wait to meet her in person! (Which will be after new years… )
Finally I found my dream redhead. I still have to fix her lips and all, but she’s pretty much perfect. Her eye chips are all so shinny that don’t even look like vintage. I can’t complain. Happy, day.
