The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

First of all, thank you so much for all the birthday wishes :heart: :hug: It's kind of a weird idea that I am 24 years old now... How time flies xD

I'm writing this journal mostly for two related announcements. The first is about AnimeCon, which is going to take place very soon! From 9 - 11 June to be exact, in The Hague, the Netherlands. I, uh, unfortunately lost track of time a little so now I'm working very hard to catch up and make the merchandise I had planned, including some new Pokemon plushies! Which does bring me to my second announcement: because of the work I have yet to do for the convention, I'm going to have to pause the commissions I'm working on until the con is over. I've started on everyone's plush (and some are pretty far advanced already!) but sadly I can't do both. Wish I had another pair of hands xD

Is anyone of you going to AnimeCon as well? Please come say hi if you do :D

(sorry for the late response) Thank you for your message! I just heard that I'll be in zone G, hopefully that will help you find me :aww:. I am going to do a big photoshoot of all the plushies I will have with me tomorrow, so there will be a teaser image available soon! There will be small plushies of all the Eeveelutions, some other canine Pokemon, some Steven Universe characters, little dragons in various colours, some cats, some foxes based on gemstones, and Kurama and Akamaru from Naruto, among others :) Next to plushies there will also be a wide selection of hand-painted notebooks and many different stickers. To top that off, I'll also be accepting sketch and ink commissions ^^

Ohh nice! You can see all of the plushies on my latest Instagram post (it's 9 pictures in one post)! www.instagram.com/kristel_stor… I don't have time to clean up the photos and post them here unfortunately, but that should give a good impression of what I'll have :D
Yessss I adore Steven Universe, I have a ton of stickers of the Gems and Lion, I just love them so! I have plushies of Lion, the corrupted quartzes and Jasper, and plush dolls of Peridot and Yellow Pearl (I will make all of the Pearls but I don't have the right colours yet!). Thank you very much! I hope you'll have fun at the con, too! When you find me, please tell me your username so I know who you are ^^

Too bad I'm in the US, it'd be cool to see your booth IRL! D: Good luck with con prep, I hope you'll share pics of some of the stuff you make to sell. O:

Oohh nice! Would be cool if you could come! I haven't been to this particular con yet so I can't tell you what to expect, except for many cosplayers of course xD I'm working very hard to make new plushies every day (though not today, too hot to sew...)

I really hope we can go! :D
I have been to Made in Asia (MIA) in Brussel last year or so.
That was my very first encounter with this type of con/convention type XD
It is hot today 0.o Can imagine you do not want to sew XD
