psychics in japanland @ 11:05 am

Current Location: japan

I got to Japan earlier this afternoon and by the evening I found the psychics in a UFO machine at the arcade close to my hotel! :D

I heard that they weren't out yet, but to my surprise, I was lucky enough to find them I managed to win a few of them. Going to list them up in case anyone on my f-list wants them (first dibs!), but feel free to ignore otherwise.

psychics!Collapse )


My first half-day has been really great, and I was also ecstatic over my new pair of cheap scissors (the ones I got last year were confiscated at the airport) because scissors in NA are kind of shitty unless you pay $15 or something ridiculous like that. Tomorrow is the PC! And a bunch of other stuff that isn't pokemon-related, sooooooooooo I'll end this things here cause it's late and I can't think of anything better to write about.

...That feeling when you've poured in about 30-40 hours into plush work and nothing is actually done and you are back to square one. D:
I think this is only natural when refining patterns though, hating bits and pieces of it and eventually getting to a point where you're okay enough with it to stuff it up and seal it once and for all.

Some random things and a few vacation pictures under the cut:


pics and more picsCollapse )

Anyway, school started this past week and I'm actually enjoying the sounds of some of these courses; I was initially counting on just doing barely enough to get through my classes but that might have to change. So, I'll have to figure out how to balance that with commissions, improving at competitive video games, and getting fit again.


Also this for those who have not seen it yet!


Alllllmost looks like it could be a copy of this leather Slowpoke plush here:


I can't really see the back view of the booty but I hope it'll be okay as I just ordered one. Most of the bootlegs are fairly cute in my opinion but there's just something slightly off about all of them.
In any case, I'm just glad to see another Slowpoke plush out there. :D

On another note, yesterday was the first time I've seen actual spiders in this suite since I moved here in May. There was not just one, but two of them... I hate spiders. So so very much.

too much plushing on my mind @ 04:28 pm

I'm making a random list of Pokemon I'm thinking of making based on interest and materials on hand..
Any suggestions are welcome - I just didn't want to open requests up to anyone so I'm going to limit it to my f-list on here for now because people on DA tend to request the most random things.. XD


too long for a regular entry so have a cutCollapse )

I probably won't end up making all of these (or if I do, it'll be.. a long time), but I'd like to at least get practice with some of them. Just trying to think of things that are dynamic in technique and will help push me a bit. I'm mostly trying to make plush for fun right now, and wanted to use the auction slots as a way to challenge myself to make something a bit more difficult than what I'm normally comfortable with. I'm not really as strapped for cash as I used to be 2 years ago when I first moved out, so I'm hoping for this to be more of a learning experience than motivation from the money.. I think the best things happen when they are done for fun and coincidentally happen to get you places. Silly me and having this idea that things will just end up working out in the end because I am too lazy to plan. ^_^;

Also Volcarona is done and photoshoot has happened too finally! Yay for unlazing myself.



Also my auctions just ended so I'll have to work pretty hard these next upcoming weeks. Good things tend to happen when I work hard though, just have to really put my mind to it.

So close to being done. D:

volcarona
I just have to sew the wings on and add more fur to his back. lol furry back. I think I am glad my back is not that hairy.

Do you guys ever have dreams where you're hungry or you're about to eat somewhere but never do?
I've dreamt of so many delectable desserts and meals .. been hungry so many times in my dreams but have never eaten a bite of anything in any of them. Ever. ;_________________, .
I think it's similar to not being able to die in your dreams for me.. but apparently food is not allowed either? D:

Okay time for lunch.

I still have a few things to work on with this sitting pattern but I'm calling this finished for now. The tail jewel took me another few hours to figure out but thank god it worked first try, or I would have had to redo the entire thing. ;_;



I finished a few more little things today and caught up on others. It seems like I'm always the most productive in the middle of the night. It's also a lot cooler in here which I love, as my place is a sauna during the day and Victoria is just getting really hot in general right now.

I had an excuse a couple weeks ago though, the people that live above me make music, even though I would rather them just play it.. this just means the same annoying (and awful) riffs a few hundred times over and over again. I was kind of afraid to go talk to them because I can still manage to sleep through things like that but they also kind of.. look like and seem irresponsible. I don't even know if they have jobs since they do this during the day too, but they strike me as the kinds of people to not care. I think that anyone playing loud music at 2-3am is probably somewhat inconsiderate, though. It's very hard to believe that they just didn't realize it..

I'm off to finish some overdue works. I think I should limit sculpting to 1-2 times a week because it hurts my hands. :(

Ampharona @ 11:27 pm


This weekend's been pretty productive. Since I dropped my last summer course, I've been trying to make the most of my time. This year it's trying to understand patterns better.

Just a shot of some progress.. new project and an old one I'm glad to finish soon.



Ampharos should be done in the next day or so, just trying to figure out and attach its' tail jewel (oh god custom painted parts take forever to make). I used to call it the "deformed plush" 2 weeks ago until I did made some major changes to the pattern. It's turning out a lot better than I thought.. at one point I was going to scrap the whole thing and just work on something else.
Actually now that I look at this picture, I realized it's old lol. I redid the arms like 3 times since the photo. Hopefully more to come this week, I'm really catching up on things I've been putting off and I'm glad. ;_;
