Fluff and Fluff

About a week ago I found yarn for sale at WalMart [half price!] and I just HAD to buy them! I got four skeins, two white, one pink, and one blue/white mix. The first thing I made with it was a sheep! How could I not? And it's way more easier to work with than the other fluffy yarn since it's a different kind of fluffy.

Luna Bowtique Review

I recently bought a pair of bows from Luna Bowtique. It was a "spend X amount, get a bow free" sort of thing. I do like getting things free, so I kind of jumped on it impulsively. So impulsively actually that I didn't even check out the whole store! I'm still new to Storenvy, so I didn't notice the categories at the top...
I'm still happy with the two bows I did pick though!

Cake and Fluffy Phonestraps

What do people even do with amigurumi and plushie cakes anyway? I mean, sure it's cute and all...but it really only exists for display purposes. And hats. Little cake hats. Those are cute.

Ghibli Straps

I've been making a lot of wrist-strap styled phone straps lately. They just look so nice. And are kind of practical. This is the latest addition to the Ghibli strap collection!

Noh-Face, Soot Sprites, Totoro! What?

This actually came up because my camera sucks and the flash goes crazy sometimes...
And this was taken at 2PM. Looks cool though, right?

Like the title says, all those things are in this post! I'm going to a one-day event called Giga-Con 2012 to sell, hangout, and do some crappy closet cosplay. I think it'll be fun. After Anime Conji, I decided I wanted to try to appeal more to the crowd since I didn't really make a lot of anime-related stuff last time. I'm not really up to date with what's popular, but everyone loves Studio Ghibli! Or at least, everyone loves Miyazaki, can't go wrong with him.

Painting Rift

A screenshot from the online game RIFT. I used it as a base for a small painting. I couldn't find my tiny canvases, so I resorted to hot gluing three rectangles of fabric onto three postcard type fliers I got at previous conventions. A little tacky from the back, but it served its purpose!
I wish I had smaller brushes when I started working. Best I had was a size 0, which was a little messed up too. Used simple craft acrylic paint, the kind found in Wal*Mart in the small bottles. Again, nothing special, but got the job done.
