Over the weekend, I posted my newest handmade creation to my Etsy shop, and I’m so excited to share it with you all! I re-did the pattern several times until I was 100% happy with the design, and now I just love it.
Each fox comes with its own scarf of leaves. Here’s a link to the listing for more information: ShliiKawaii Cute Hip Fox.
I’m happy to say that I’m almost finished with my Carrie Kelley cosplay, and it’s a good thing since New York Comic Con is only two days away! All I have left to make is a Robin scarf, belt pouch, and to finish my cape.
Thursday, I’ll be wearing a Batman-inspired outfit consisting of a Batman shirt, Batman socks, a Batman hair bow, and Batman cuff. I finished sewing the bow and cuff tonight, and I really like the way they turned out.
Friday and Saturday will be allll Robin xD During the day, I’ll wear my cape, and at night I’ll switch to her winter outfit, with black leggings and a black shirt underneath plus a Robin scarf. I regrettably don’t have green boots so I’ll be wearing black boots.
Sunday will be a Loki/Tom inspired outfit. I’ll be wearing my “You Mad?” Loki shirt, Loki necklace, long plaid shirt, white pleather jacket, black leggings, black boots, and gold vinyl hair bow (that I also just finished sewing).
I’m so excited about the Dealers room, AA, photoshoots, designer toy panels, DC Comics panels, The Legend of Korra panel, Once Upon a Time panel, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel, Adventure Time panel, and Sleepy Hollow panel.
I’ve never been to a big con before. The largest I’ve ever been to is less than 10,000. To go from that to probably the largest con on the east coast.. Haha I’m a little nervous! I actually have a lot of social anxiety problems, but I’m very good at pretending I’m fine ^-^
Here are some photos of my Robin progress:
Hey everyone! So, I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t posted in FOREVER! And it made me sad that I didn’t have time to blog, because I really enjoy it. Here’s a very brief overview of what’s been going on and why I’m FREAKING OUT AND SO EXCITED RIGHT NOWWW!!!
1. Baby Yeti Version 3.0
I once again revised my Baby Yeti doll pattern but only slightly. You might not even be able to tell the difference since it’s so subtle, but I absolutely love the way they look now. Instead of sewing the mouth piece to the front and giving it that “patchwork” look, I now cut the face piece and place the fabric behind it, giving it a more three dimensional and creepy cute look that I love!! They’re still available in three colors: Powder, Periwinkle, and Aqua. Here are some photos:
As always, the Baby Yeti are available in my etsy shop, ShliiKawaii.etsy.com. They start going fast the closer we get to December, so if you’re on the fence about getting one, I highly recommend not waiting too long!
2. ETC Embrace The Culture Indie Music & Arts Festival 2013
This year, I vended at ETC with my cousin, Karlee. We had so much fun and met a lot of awesome people! There were so many talented bands that played that day, and the food trucks..oh man dat food. There were chicken tacos, curry dishes, fried chicken, spring rolls, and the list of deliciousness goes on (Can you tell I’m a Feeder?). I was really proud of our booth set up, even though we ended up having to put up the side panels since it was extremely windy. Here are some ETC photos:
3. New York Comic Con 2013
The third and final installment of the “What I’ve Been Doing With My Life” post. Lol! Okay, so I’m freaking out and ridiculously excited about this one, because it’s happening NEXT WEEK!! I’ve never been to NYCC before, so I have a mixture of all kinds of feelings: anxious, excited, nervous, EXCITED. Yeah, I’m mostly excited, but I’m also stressing because I haven’t finished my Robin (Carrie Kelley) cosplay yet! I’m also stressing because the government shutdown happened today, so my husband is being sent home this morning. Crazy! I really hope my Etsy sales pick up, because I’m not sure what we’re going to do
I don’t want to leave this post on a stressed out note, so let me add some good news: I have some yeti and sloth hoop art, kawaii fleece hats, and baby yetis left from the ETC show, so I will be adding them to my shop as soon as I get back from NY. I’ll also be adding some new dolls, including the HappiMonstas, a new bat doll design, kawaii pillows, and more hat designs. It’s been a while since I’ve added new items, so I’m really excited to finally expand my shop!!
This month I started a new craft: embroidery! Well, sort of. I’m not sure if you’d actually call it “embroidery”, but I do use hoops and floss!
For a while now, I’ve been wanting to make embroidery hoop art based on my different doll designs. Last week I made sloth embroidery art, and I am currently working on yeti embroidery art. I’m so excited about this new craft form!
All of the hoop art I’m working on is for ETC, aka Embrace The Culture. It’s an indie music and arts festival on September 14 in Towne Point Park of Norfolk, VA. I really hope I have a successful show, because the last one I did was painfully bad! I think the indie crowd might like my items more so than the last crowd, though, so hopefully it’ll turn out okay :3
