Beads and Corn?

I’ve been desperately working on updating my shop but it’s a long and tedious process especially now that I am officially part of the workforce :'( I still can’t believe I have a real job now, I just can’t see myself working for the next 40 years @_@

Anyways, I have taken pictures of all the poop plushies for NinjaPoop.com (collectively run by the group known as BLM – will explain when we finally put up the shop XD) but since I have no design/layout for the site, I’m at a lost at what to do… I did have time to play with some of the merch though, I absolutely love the “Corn Dookie” headband:

As for my own shop (lots of new handmade items to come!), I spent hours taking pictures of stuff and this one has to be my hands down favourite:

There’s just something about the combination of beads and the colours. I don’t even like blue!

Now off to editing pictures… *sigh*

BIGBANG – MONSTER

Listening To: BigBang – Monster

Ever since GDragon’s teaser picture for the music video Monster came out (the picture on the left), I have been using it as a wallpaper on my phone. It’s so beautiful!

I’m so excited that BigBang finally released their new song and music video Monster! Did you check it out yet? What do you think of it?

Before I got the chance to read up on the lyrics, I feel frustration and sadness in the song. *sobs*

After I read the lyrics, I understand why I felt sad and frustrated. That’s how well I think GD and PK composed the song. The melody alone is so haunting beautiful and sad. T_T The lyrics is also very meaningful and it fit perfectly with the melody that was compose for it. GD sure did it again! <3

Everyone may look at me with judging eyes,
but what really hurts is the fact that you have become a part of that “everyone”.
Lyrics Translation Credit: michelia94.wordpress.com

Even if you weren’t a monster to begin with, those who you loved can turn you into a monster.

Obessed with Charm Bracelets

So shiny, so hard to resist  > . <!

I’ve been collecting charms and man do they burn a hole in your wallet! Not to mention the charms don’t fit on all bracelets which sucks if you want to combine them all :( This is the one (combo) I usually stick with:

bracelet

If only I could fit charms from other brands on it. Darn you Michael Hill for making fat bracelets, darn you!!!

My a little geekier look, I love these mario themed charms:

They’re bright and colourful which isn’t usually my thing, but the charms are too cute to resist.

Finally, I think my favourite beads from all the brands I’ve purchased from are the troll beads. I love the small to non-existent rim on their glass beads. This one is pink dessert (along with a wing charm):

I got this little baby in Vegas, too bad the troll bead counter in one of the Caesar’s Palace shops is gone. Where will I get my shinies now? ;___;

Anime North 2012 – The Experience

I can’t believe it’s over already!

It was a stressful couple of a months leading up to the convention as we scrambled to get ready for the convention but it ended in a blink of an eye.

Overall, it was a great experience and we’ve learned a lot. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a table next year and see you all there. I’d also like to thank all the Anime North staff and volunteers for making this all possible.

Please look forward to our poop plushie collection and other goods at NinjaPoop.com

Big Thank You from BLM

Hi all!

On behalf of myself and my partners, I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to all who stopped by our table! This is not our first time attending Anime North, but it is our first time displaying our crafts at the convention and you made it so memorable for us. Thanks for liking our crafts! ^^

For those who are wondering if we will still be selling our poops and other crafts on our website, the answer is yes. The poops and other crafts were made just for the convention but since they are so loved by you all, we decided to continue making them. We will try to update our website as soon as possible, in the meantime please follow us on the blog for more updates. If there is something you saw at our table that you wanted but it was either sold out or you didn’t get a chance to get it at the end, you are welcome to request them by commenting on this post.

Again, thank you all for coming!

Perhaps we will see you again at Anime North 2013! :D

Last Minute, No Power, FML

Listening To: Etsuko Nishio – Don’t Make Me Wild Like You

Yes, I am listening to Ranma 1/2’s opening theme song for Season 1. Gosh I love that anime, I really wish I got my hands on the rest of the series. My friend only managed to get at least 3 Seasons of that show. So sad T_T

As you all know, if you read the last blog entry, we are going to be at the Craft’s Corner @ Anime North 2012 this year! :) I’ve been meeting up with moldysquash and our other partner in crime at her house crafting every weekend last year, but then winter came and everyone got super busy, until recently we started to meet up a bit more because Anime North is around the corner and some of us haven’t been able to craft as much as we expected (point at self orz). SO! I decided, I’m going to bring all the fabric and other materials back home and craft there! I told and promised moldysquash that I’ll make so and so amount of plushies because I have a sewing machine and it’s faster than her hand sewing it (props for hand sewing (”’¬.¬)o). Honestly, I haven’t touched my sewing machine in years! I’m not even sure where it is in the house but thank god Mom was able to find the machine for me. After the machine was found, I didn’t work on the crafting right away, I’ve been pulling off crafting because I was over exhausted working full time and part time at the same time and I just wanted to rest and do nothing. Anyways I ended up crafting last minute, when I mean last minute, I meant I have to meet my quota by the very next day because I will be meeting up with moldysquash and our other partner in crime. Truthfully, I wasn’t too worried about not getting everything done as said because I do have my trusty sewing machine…or at least that’s what I thought. I opened the dusty box and took the sewing machine out and put it on the table. It took me 5 seconds to realized something wasn’t right. WHERE ON THE EARTH IS THE POWER CORD?! That’s when I started to worry about not being about to meet my quota. Mom also have no idea where it is, therefore the sewing machine was HOPELESS. T___T; Not to fret! I could at least cut all the patterns right? =.= FAIL! The scissor I had, which I thought would be tough enough to cut the fabric, is poop! It took me forever to cut the patterns. So I totally gave up and told moldysquash about what happen. So girls and boys, do not do things last minute! >.> Save yourself from embarrassment! orz

Here’s a teaser of what we will be selling tomorrow ;)

moldysquash and I will be cosplaying on Saturday and Sunday, please come visit us and guess who we are dressed up as! :D

Decoden Whipped Cream

The thought of using silicone for my decoden projects scare the heck out of me so I set off on a quest to make my own or at least find another suitable medium.

First off, you can buy clay whipped cream, some brands come with tips and are ready to use which is awesome like fuwa fuwa, decollage, etc, but the problem is they’re crazily expensive.

So next, I tried modeling paste. I got two brands, Golden and Tri-art:

– Tri-art has the perfect colour, it dries completely snow white and I love the texture. It dries a bit “sharper” as in the peaks hold shape extremely well. However, it shrinks like a *beep beep*. I was so sad when I saw how it dried. It’s honestly completely unusable if you need a thick layer or want to make a larger piece because of how much it shrinks. It should be fine if you’re using a thin layer to cover say a box or a flat surface.

_ Golden has a nice, creamy look, doesn’t shrink and dries faster than Tri-art, but it’s got a grey tint. Why??? It’s more than twice the price of Tri-art too. I’m going to try to add colour to it and hopefully it’ll be usable.

So moving on, I tried making whipped cream out of paper clay and glue. That didn’t turn out too well as the cream turned out lumpy (I could still see the paper fibres) and adding modelling paste to the mixture didn’t help :( Maybe I’m just using the wrong brand of clay, I’m going to give it another try with Hearty, Modena, and maybe even Sculpey if I get desperate – but I don’t want to bake >.<;;. If anyone has suggestions or would like reviews of other brands of clay, feel free to leave a comment. I also have Grace and Arista on hand.

Anyways, onwards with experimenting and a crappy picture cuz I'm too lazy to break out my SLR:

A Little of Everything

Got a computer virus a few days ago, spent many hours backing up files, formatting, etc, etc. Ugh! And my computer is still not reconfigured the way I like, why did you take away my old style start menu??? >.>;;

But on the same day, I received my order from modes4u which cheered me up a little. It took about 8 days which isn’t too bad and I did manage to dodge the customs fees bullet :D The items weren’t packed as well as I though it would be, just came in a plastic bag and a paper envelope but nothing was damaged so it’s all good.

Now I have all my materials I can start making stuff :D Which I need to find motivation for because of Mickey Yoochun and Rooftop Prince, I’m absolutely addicted to this drama right now. I kind of wished I started it after it was completed, I hate waiting for each week for new episodes ;_________;
