Hello, my name is Yuki. I was born and raised in Japan and I moved to Vancouver, Canada in 1999. You might’ve seen me as Killer Tomato (or Killah Tomato) at various online places.
I do a lot of artsy and crafty things in general as part of my job. But my biggest obsession at the moment is to collect dolls and be as creative as possible with them. I sew, customize, fix-up, and more. I’m super excited how dolls connect us together all over the world.

In 2009, my friends and I entered the Blythe Beauty Contest and we were selected as one of the 15 finalists! I worked on her face-up and outfit patterns/prototypes.
You can read more about her here.
In the end of the same year, she’s auctioned away for the charity by CWC in Japan. Her trace was missing since then, but she will always be one of my most special custom girls.
