Does it matter what kind I buy?
Yes, it matters what *kind* you buy, but it doesn't really matter which brand-- just whichever one is easier for you to work with. Make sure it's bakeable clay and not modeling clay. It WILL melt in the oven (For example, using non-bakeable modeling clay as a filler for larger sculptures may or may not result in said sculpture cracking/exploding and oozing hot, melted slime. Not that I'd know that from first-hand experience or anything. Nonetheless, you have been warned). Some polymer clay brands are Fimo, Sculpey, Premo (I believe this is made by Sculpey), and Kato.

A little over 2 weeks until the Saga Comic Con!! I'm so excited!! I've got my table application in, so now it's just getting down to making my stuff. I've got about 3 dozen character stickers drawn, some uchiwa fans, postcards and magnets, just need to print it all out in the quantity I need.
I have no clue how much I should expect to sell, so I'm just going to print about 15 for each, I can use this first time to judge for future cons. It's going to be so much fun, a friend agreed to come with me and sit at the table to keep me company even though she doesn't want to sell anything, and some of my students that are also planning to sell
A few weeks ago we had a small comic convention here in my city. It was very small, only an afternoon with about 200 people in attendance. Unlike the anime cons I know in N. America there wasn't a dealers' room or shows or anything like that, just artists selling fanart goods, maybe some original character goods, etc., so it's not as intense as running around trying to find panels, workshops, catching shows, getting autographs, etc. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon hanging out with friends that have similar interests and grabbing some cosplay photos.
I saw a few of my students there too :D Some of them even rented a table and were s
So today was the Opening Ceremony at my school. I was a little nervous since I didn't know which teachers would be changed and which ones would stay (apparently in Japan letting teachers know they're getting transferred in the new school year a few days before school actually starts is normal). Last year we had 5 Japanese English teachers and me as the only ALT at my school. This year it went down to 4 Japanese English teachers, and still just me as the ALT. 2 of the teachers from last year stayed, and we got 2 new ones
Last year I started working at this school in September, smack in the middle of the year because the ALT before me quit
