Akira working part-time in butler cafe

>> 29.6.14

It all started with this photo.
If any of you have noticed, I always have the soft spot for cute things. And I end up buying cute things for my dolls too. Akira is no exception; even when he is the only male doll and joke to my friends that he is being bullied in that sense.

But the hello kitty cup (with a huge pink ribbon) is just too much for him. He refuse to have it. Hehehe...

And yesterday I went to a doll outing with some friends. I decided to dress him as if he is working part-time in a butler cafe; a version of cafe known mostly to anime fans. I don't know if everybody understand the terms; if you want to know more, just do a google search to more info :3

The story was actually coincidental, while I was playing with the hot chocolate and donuts that I made recently. And of course, my friends (and friends' dolls) coincidentally fit into a storyline.

Akira: "this is not for me, right?"

"for you, lovely customer"

"be careful, it's hot"

during recess time, a hot choco drink for himself

"more marshmallows, please"

"these donuts looks yummy!"

"can i get a chance to talk to her if i offer these donuts?

Akira: "would you like to have some donuts?"
Calleigh: "errrm, i have to go..."

Akira: T.T

the ladies were having fun by themselves

Akira: "okay, I'll just have a sip of my coffee then..."

the next day: back to babysit Ayame :3

On the personal note: his string on the hip are loose, he couldn't stand properly. I have to re-string him! So yes, I only can make him sit during the doll outing, and couldn't join the rest who play and pose their dolls. T.T

Anyway, here are the hot choco drinks that are still available. Meaning to sell these on the upcoming doll event in November. But if any of you readers want to reserve, kindly contact me so I will also know if I have to stock more!

And on the side note, this is a balloon skirt + simple top that I sew for Ayame few weeks ago, to fit with her cutesy image.


Animal-themed DONUTS!

Second title: making failures!

When I met and chat with new people, sometimes they just do not believe that I also still make failures. I always answer honestly that I do make A LOT of mistake and failures, but it's just I seldom show/blog/talk to other about it. Believe me, my bestfriend can testify to it (mostly because she became the outlet of the failure).
And during those failure-making-moments; I am at the crankiest, most annoying, mostly nonsense-talking. If I can wear a sign on my forehead: "do not approach; may explode anytime possible".

I have to learn to walk away, shift my mind to another thing, and come back to it when I can be more calm. But sometimes that advice couldn't work; I can't just walk away. It is the only thing that fills my whole brain; MUST get it done. But by doing that... is just creating more failures. Oooh, I know it well because I have to learn it the hard way. I am used to chuck-away massive amount of failures to rubbish bin; simply just because it's painful to see all the failures.

Same thing with illustrating. I do envy people who can do a quick sketch, finishing up an illustrations much quicker than my speed. But then again... I am sure they might also have the frustrating moments of themselves, it's just that other people never see how much chaos behind it.

Back to these donuts :)
They took me a week (full of complains) before I got them done from the sketches.
I am having trouble with having a smooth colour-coating on the donuts. I did them same like what people would have done with the real donuts, dipped them onto the coating, flip them and leave them to dry. I wanted them to be as smooth as possible; but then again... real donuts are not that smooth either :3
Too smooth makes them look too fake; despite the fact that I am making a fake food! Hahaha, the irony...

Finally I can have fun with the arrangements; big to small stackable donuts!
The largest being 1:3 scale for SD dolls, 1:4 for MSD, and 1:12 for dollhouse collectors. Some are not complete, because I did not make a complete set for sale and I made some only for myself.

scale 1:3 donuts on my hands

I did some photoshoot yesterday during a doll outing with friends. I've brought Akira out, and he poses with some of the donuts and hot chocolate marshmallows that I did recently. Decided to blog it on a different post because it includes a simple cute story :3


Funan Anime Matsuri Belated Report

First of all, I knoooow this is a late blogpost about the event that Snowfern and me did about 2 weeks ago.
Valid reason: I was recovering from bad flu/ cough which turned my voice hoarse (I joked that it is the only time I can say I'm sexy :P) and RL has been hectic on top of everything.
The so-called-real-reason: Nowadays I seems to get lazy at writing. And some things that I considered as fun, but some sensitive people seems to badly misinterpret them.

Back to the main topic, it was a fun event!
As usual, we never expected much to begin with; and we have another joined exhibition, SGDC in November. By lowering our expectation (and trying to calm our nervousness), we enjoy things more happily :)

Again, I thank you for so many people who bought over my tiny creations. I took it as a support for me to keep on doing what I love. So many friends came by to support us, and sorry for our neighbour-booths as we are always the rowdy one (including insulting each other). Hehehe.

My illustrations folder got stranded on the side. The table was much smaller than the one we expected to get from the event organiser. And I end up taking more space than Snowfern, sorry! XD
Am going to start listing my new illustrations on my online shop soon, as soon as I figure out how to display (and still avoiding illustrations-thiefs!). You can view the new illustrations by clicking here. Again, these are NOT free images, as I am THE ONLY ONE who sells my own print. If you find my prints anywhere that are sold anywhere else, kindly inform me and DO NOT buy from them, thank you in advance.

Snowfern's share on Day 1

I am leaving Snowfern's part because I think she's done her report much earlier than me. :)

Please follow me on facebook or instagram for much more faster update on my works. I do try to update on those platform much more frequently (because it is so much easier/ thanks to my lazy side, hehe).
