Time flies so fast! It’s only 2 more weeks till BCNY. It’s going to be the last minutes but I will post photos of outfits I’m going to bring to NY. Please stay tuned!
I’m prepping the package at the moment. I got a very special Vinyl Belly rubber stamps now. I love how it turned out. I love stamps. It’s so much fun! (It’s not time efficient for the packaging job though… OTL) If you follow VB Facebook page, you might noticed that the logo is completed with uber talented friend’s calligraphy. I love it so so much. It wouldn’t look the same [...]
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. I would love to make more masks in different variations in the future. [...]
I’m taking a short break from sewing but I’m making something new. I’ve always wanted to make a Blythe-size Venetian mask for a while, so I started working on a prototype. The first one is a cat!
I had an opportunity to research TONS! to make some human size animal mask last year. It was so much work especially I sort of had a tight deadline as well. But I feel like it’s finally paying off because it’s much easier this time and to work on a mini size. So far it’s coming along fast.
I still want to run more tests since this mask WILL scratch [...]
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. [...]
It’s been a while since last time I photographed my Blythe. So here it is, my mini-me KT and mini Yoko. They’re best friends! (I believe it’s the same in real life too :D) The weather’s been so nice here. I should take more advantage to it more often.
Ever since I moved to Cali in the end of September last year, I’ve been incredibly busy. Then I finally got to visit back Japan for new years. Now I finally feel like I can start something! I slowly started sewing again, I’m pulling out my camera equipments, I’m sorting which Blythe I’m going to custom… and so on. And yes, I [...]
