- 1/6/12 I finished the last of my non-friend requested commissions. Commissions are closed. Hopefully I can spend more time on my manga, making a BJD (since I got a dremel tool and a bjd making book) and finishing a cosplay I started 2 years ago, Nausicaa. Saving up for anime cons. I don't want to have an artist ally booth anymore... too much work. :P
- 12/26/11 Best Christmas ever! I got the Yoshida BJD making guide, a dremel tool, and all of rorouni kenshin! Yay! I just compiled a translated version of the book for download (I didn't translate it of course). It's my latest blog and is also a new link in the How to make BJD tutorial tab! :D Merry Christmas guys! Btw, I also changed Sephi's eyelashes. That was scary and it took... too long. She has big obnoxious sparkly ones now! :)
- 12/16/11 I got my BJD on December 12th! She's so amazing! I named her Sephi, after three days of trying to think of a name. The day after I got her I made her some pants and a shirt. I'm really pressed for time and money so I have nearly no time for commissions. Thankfully I only have a few left. I'm making a photo compilation of all the parts of my bjd so it will be easier for me, and others, to understand how to make one. Yayyyy!!!! :) Thank you guys for the commissions, I could have never gotten her without your help~! <3
- 11/28/11 Finished another Commish, still waiting for my BJD and clothes to arrive. Thanksgiving was good and soon it will be my birthday! Yay! I've been working on manga in my spare time. I'm going to make (eventually) a guide on how to buy from AngellStudio and a basic "How to understand the anime, Bjd, lolita culture: for parents" video.
- 11/13/2011 Commissions are CLOSED! I will work on what I have, but will not accept new commissions till after the holidays. Thank you for buying! I ordered my BJD! YAY!
