What a month. Either work is just insane or everything else around it is just in a state of chaos.

It seems that in my complete forgetfulness I did not register anyone to sit at my table with me at the Otakon artist alley before the deadline (May 19th). When checking out the forums, the person in charge of the alley has pretty much said “tough”. Oh well. I blame no one but myself for this. This is going to be a fun year indeed.

Things to look up about:

-I got my hair cut today. It was sorely needed. I was at the point where I could tuck my bangs behind my ears. It was really getting me down. It’s may sound strange or even vain but it’s one of the few “beauty” things I really splurge on and is like my instant Prozac (besides the boy in the image above). Hopefully the haircut will sink in again and let me forget the whole “Otakon disaster”.

-Dolpa is a few weeks away. I get to leave this city for a short while and go into a bigger one with better transportation and cooler shops. I’ll also be getting to see some very cool people that I don’t normally get to spend time with. I’ll also, surprisingly, have a few new guys to take with me to the event. One of them thanks to an incredibly thoughtful collector which I will get into later. Not like it was terribly important, it was something that I did not plan for, but happened. I still plan on taking Hito for non-Volk’s events. I can’t leave him at home:3

-Tomorrow and the rest of next week, besides knitting like a fiend, I’m devoting all of my time to just “play” with the new boys and with my dolls in general. Again, I’m falling into the same trap of enjoying other people’s dolls and not my own. I really need to cut out my internet time… which as of late is the only thing I’ve had time and energy for.

Well, I have a Japanese class this afternoon. I need to prepare before Yoko arrives. I think we had homework last class… Japanese verbs will be my downfall, I tell ya!

Feeling rather ho hum this week. Hearing about the new katsucon artist alley rules has not helped at all. Just when I was feeling hopeful about that convention again it just turned out to be the same old stuff.

Now buying this sadol jacket would help for a few minutes… maybe a day. I have no idea who would wear it but I would find someone who would. If only they made that in my size…-_-

silly necklace

so hito and i have been through a bit of drama this weekend (notice that emile is still not using his own body). i’ll be talking about that soon enough.
so to comfort the boy i forced him to wear the most ridiculous necklace i think i’ve ever made.
i was fooling around with some scaled down cloth flowers this weekend and was inspired to make a few romantic/deconstructed style necklaces(i’ve been reading way too many japanese doll blogs latelyO_o). i made these out of some distressed cotton that i had as left overs from other projects. i backed each flower with some crocheted stainless steel wool lace weight and strung everything up with a little silver chain. there is even a garnet color crystal hanging from a chain off the flower but it may be hard to tell. i have a few other flower styles that i’m going to try so we’ll see what i’ll have later.
frustration motivated me to finished this little number up after reading a few critics on doa. it really ticks me off when people recommend prices they’ve seen on places like dollmore for something hand made. when will people get it that you can not compare handmade doll clothes to doll clothes bought from dollmore. that’s like comparing etsy to walmart. (sorry dollmore)ugh…
