So many ideas.  So many many ideas that need to be expanded and worked upon.  Then Skylanders Giants came out.  They are calling me to go play.  But I suppose you are looking for new products and there are many ideas that I really want to get made.  Just need to sit down and do it!  Me thinks a mini top hat form is needed to be started. 

Any requests?

I know I promised updates to our new product.  So here is an in progress picture.  Mini Hats!


Check out the in progress picture and check back for more.  I will be getting the details added on in the coming days and have the first of many hats available to order.  All custom.  All one of a kind.

Still working on the new projects and Kyle has some great new ideas for new stuff for next year. 

The weather has turned colder and with the cold has brought a cold.  And flu.  We have been a little under the weather.  Course we are always under the weather unless we are on a plane, but still we are under some weather then.  Ya.  Halloween is coming and there is a huge sale at the fabric store.  Would be nice to pick up some patterns for costumes.  Then modify them for cosplay.  Who's game?  Any ideas or requests? 

Found this gorgeous material, comes in red or green with a lace overlay.  Think it would make some loverly accessories!  Or dresses, or hats, or socks.  Ok, maybe not socks. 

Drop us a line, we are loving all the people giving us ideas or just chatting with us.

Otafest Aurora is out.  $350 for a seven hour day is just too much to pay.  We like to keep our costs low so that our products prices can stay low.  We were so looking forward to another convention this year.  But c'est la vie. 


We are preparing for next year all the same.  Animethon had a stock of over a dozen different items.  By the time Otafest 2013 rolls around we hope to have double that.  We also hope to improve upon our existing designs.  Have you already bought a set of Pokemon badges?  Well look out.  I am hard at work sculpturing them and making them larger and cleaner.  We are also working on having a few full set boxes of every badge released, including Black 2 and White 2. 


I am also branching out, working with new fabrics and new details.  No longer will I work with just toys, Now you will be able to wear the items I will make!  I hope to have the first of many done today, tomorrow at the latest.  Pictures and purchasing will be available once the item is complete.  Black with silver sparkle and much more.  Can't wait.  Pictures I think will be posted on Monday.  Yes, Monday.  Thanksgiving and all.  Two meals and a turkey coma later then you get pictures.


Kyle has been hard at work.  So many ideas and so little time.  But the major project has involved way too many rolls of gorilla tape and a whole lot of shredded paper. 


As always, feel free to contact us at any of our three emails.  Ideas, comments or just to compliment us, feel free.  :)

A new month. 


This year is just flying by.  I started the year watching seals and orcas swim by my house.  I crossed back over the Rockies and am now watching the leaves change colours and the promise of much cold and snow.  Good thing I am in a nice warm house with my sewing machine and a whole lot of fabric.


Speaking of fabric, I had to go pick up some suede for a commission that Kyle is doing.  While there my nephew and I found so many pretty fabrics we can't wait to go pick up and turn into our awesome mystery project number 2!  I did break down and ended up buying a few different ends of the rolls of some.  Four different kinds and colours. 


I am such a procrastinator.  I keep putting off the new projects.  I have most of the supplies to start and one of the patterns cut out but sewing is slow to come.  Not a lot of people demanding my services right now so I keep putting it off. 


Otafest should be announcing their vendor packs soon.  Once we get the details we will be looking into setting up a booth.  Maybe once that is decided I will start the new projects.  A goal to work towards.

Watching TV with my nephew has generated a new idea!  Well, an old idea, just realized!  Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are coming out soon and that means NEW BADGES!!!   That means Pokemon Black 1 and White 1 Badges are also going to get an update.  Who's excited?!

Plus a mini rant.  Who else thinks that standing out side someone's fence and yelling at their dogs and blowing a blow horn is ridiculous??  I mean really, it's Saturday but the dogs weren't out until after 10am and didn't start the barking until just before noon!  Bite me jerks!  I keep them quiet but sometimes a dog just has to bark. . . especially at idiots who are about to have blow horns stuffed where the sun don't shine.  No more "silent and deadly"!!

Well it's been an eventful weekend.  So much fun to go visit family and have birthday celebrations and then come home to being yelled at by a neighbor because we are late at locking up the dogs (10pm) and she tries to just walk into our back yard, almost losing one of our dogs in the process.  But I digress, there is a full on rant on my facebook.


So Otafest Aurora is still looking into the dealer's hall layout so information is being delayed a bit longer.  Once I know, I will let all of you know if we will be there on December 15th. 


But in better news, we are still working on projects!  Here is a sneak peek at what I am working on.  Can you guess the two different projects in the two pictures?  Email us your answers and the first person to get both right answers will get a secret bonus with their next order!

It's been a busy week.  I've been looking into a new project that I am really excited about starting along with the other project that I need to finish.  One you wear and one you cuddle.  That's all I'm saying for now.

 


Now as for what I've actually been doing, I had two birthdays come up in the last week and I volunteered to make the cakes.  Ended up with fondant, something I have never worked with before.  Didn't turn out too bad if I do say so myself!

  

 

We are also looking into setting up a table at a convention this December.  We should know more on Saturday or Sunday if we can make it work!  Any guesses where??

New projects are taking over our house, computers and minds.  There are so many things we want to make and so little time to do it in.  We have to sit down and decide on the conventions that we are going to attend in the end of 2012 and all of 2013.  Anyone have any ideas or requests from us? 

 

Otafest Aurora is coming up in December and only a short 2 hour drive away. . . might have to consider it, that is if we have a full table of stock! 

 

So one new project is exciting.  I got a beautiful fuzzy blue inspiration for it! Kijiji rocks!

 

The other new project I got an awesome mini version that i might just make in the mini version.  Love Halloween stores!
