hi everybody! i'm not dead! i've just been super busy. making all of these things! getting things ready for a show by yourself is hard work.
this year at otakon, i have new stuff and old favorites!
(going from left to right starting at the top)
SUSHI MAGNETS! i've made hundreds of these little guys, and they'll be 3 for $1
SILLY FACES MAGNETS! because they're fun! there's not too many of these, but they'll be .50 each
BITTY BOTS! these do really well at my other shows, so i've made an army of over 500 of them. no two are the same, each one is hand painted with different designs, colors, and faces. they're a blast to make. they come in either a keychain form which you can do countless things with, from cellphone charms, bracelets, earings, zipper pull, you name it, and they also come as magnets! $4 each
BIG BOTS! these are like their little cousins, the bitty bots, but they range in size and price, each one a one of a kind robot. they all come with bios about themselves, and they are made with found materials, like electronic parts, car parts, antique parts, watch parts, old pieces of furniture, buttons, and countless kinds of hardware. they're also nearly impossible to break. prices range from $10 -30
STRANGE CRITTERS! made from a resin epoxy, these critters are made from old discarded toys, hardware, plastic and metal parts, similar to the kinds of things found in the big robots above. these are also nearly impossible to break and are a one of a kind. prices of these range from $5-60
SHEEPS! growing up raising sheep, i've always loved them. they're all real breeds of sheep, all hand sculpted, with little nail legs and eyes. they're sturdy, cute, and lovable $5 each
LLAMAS! the big fad of the times, and most based off the pets i have here where i live. while they're not very friendly animals in real life, these little llamas toys are very friendly. they'll be happy to sit and listen to your stories all day long. each one is hand painted, also with nail legs and eyes, no two are alike. $7 each
COUSINS! various cousins from katamari games, while these guys will not clean your house and roll up your possessions, they will sit around and be adorable. each one is hand sculpted, and painted. $6
GIANT ROBOTS! there will only be a few really large robots brought to the show, but each one is made of many kinds of hardware and antique parts. they're my favorite to make, but they're also the hardest. prices range from $30-100
UGLY POKEMON if you think horrible yaoi is the only thing that can ruin your childhood loves, so can making them ugly. each one is hand sculpted to be horrible looking, no one has the same face. (thank god). they're fun to make, but there's no many of them made for this show. prices range from $15-40
LONG KITTIES they cling to things with their arms, they'll lean up against you and listen to your bad jokes, they'll fight each other. the long kitties are fun, and made to make you smile...and you can rest your chopsticks on them $4 each
TETRIS! a game everyone loves, now in a form you can't lose, (or win) in magnets! stick these on your frige, your locker, your real gundam, and play for as long as you like. sets come with 7 pieces, one of each shape. $5 a set, .75 for individual pieces.
SLENDER DOLLS! snuggle up with this slenderdoll at night while you pray to god the real one doesn't come to eat your soul. $10 each
PRINTS!! I'll have prints from the past several years availble, in several sizes, most being 8 1/2 x 11, and new mini prints, in 5 x 7! you can get them matted, backed and bagged at the table, if you'd like! prices range from $4 - 20
i really hope some of you can make it otakon this year, it's going to be so much fun! i've been working since last year to make enough stock for this year's show.
while i love your comments, your mail, and anything you send my way on this site, even if i don't respond, i cannot live off of well wishes alone. i have bills to pay, and expenses to keep up with. so please come buy some toys, or prints! but if you do come by the booth, let me know who you are! i'd love to see some of you guys in person. i hope to see you there! have a great rest of the summer!
This is one of my Halloween Crabs. He liked my Christmas sweater almost as much as I did. He's pretty friendly, and doesn't mind being held. He is surprisingly dainty and careful with his claws, he's never pinched me, or even attempted to.
The other two Halloween Crabs I have aren't quite as friendly though.
