I forgot that I had to do a shoot with this Dipp plushie when I said I had nothing to post the other day. He’s on his way to his new home now!
It took me longer to set up for this shoot than it did for me to take pics. Strategically placing things (with just straight pins) on a ball of fabric is hard! It’s mostly made of doll things and other random stuff I found around my room. Also, getting him to stand… Those legs are not wired! It’s a combo of him leaning on the backdrop and my patience from years of posing various BJD bodies, LOL. I’m really proud of the statuesque pose in the first pic~ XD
AnimeNext preview! I’ll have these at the AnimeNext Artist Alley this weekend, then they’ll be up on my Etsy shop sometime after that. ^_^
I’m really excited to make the Dipp bag again. Probably no one remembers, but I will never forget, that last fall I made Dipp, only I appliqued 26 stars each onto 3 bags in a fit of insanity. ^_^; I’ve had a lot of requests for him though, so I got the fabric printed. It’ll be a limited run! I was going to have Ichigo ready, too, but I didn’t color check the fabric and it came out pretty orange. Now I need an idea for orange strawberry fabric, LOL.
Etsy shop update! There are some other things, too, but my camera loves the Katamari items. I also added the info for the Tree Trunks plushie, so if anyone has been waiting, she’s now available online. ^_^ I ended up selling all the ones I had at AB, so I bought more fabric, LOL. I can make quite a few more now.
I think I’ll make some other cousins for tote bags next. I’m still figuring out the easiest way to make Dipp again. Who else should I make?
Whoo~ I’m not feeling that well, but there’s no time to stop working! Here are a few quick progress pics I just took of some of my current projects to be finished before Anime Boston.
1. Marceline’s hat (Video Makers, first outfit)… It’s not technically the right color, but I haven’t got time to make a hat/make this hat the right color, so it’ll do for now.
2. Mephisto… doesn’t fit on my dress form, but is pretty much done. I decided to go with the anime version for coloring, so I’ve got some rockin’ pink pants to finish this hot ensemble.
3. Totes in progress… Re-stocking Miso til my Katamari fever burns out and a new white rabbit design.
4. Coin purses, finished! Well, these ones at least… I’m cutting back a lot on the amount of fan art products I make, but I can’t stop making Katamari cousins, LOL.
Progress pics! I’m finally making an Ichigo coin pouch! Dipp is back, too, of course.
The other one is my Mephisto costume. I decided to do the exorcist uniform, because I didn’t want to wear puffy shorts, but I wish I’d just done one of the yukata, because I hate tailoring jackets. ^_^ Still a bit more to be done, but it’s getting there!
