What Does the Fox Say?

When my sisters and I went to Youmacon there was a t-shirt vendor that had some really awesome designs. Sadly none of the pix turned out that we took of the booth but one of the shirts that was most memorable featured the following image…

I knew it had to be a reference to something but what? I didn’t have to wait long for an answer. When the girls and I made our way home on the second day a certain song started playing on the radio and it clicked!

The Fox (What Does the Fox Say) by Ylvis is horrible when you are just listening to it but so much fun if you watched the video! XD Needless to say my sibs and I have been having a lot of fun listening to this.

Have a look, take a listen, hope you find it funny too. :o)

Thanks for reading!

A Shojo Manga-inspired event: Our Labu Labu Sparkle Romance Engagement Party

Wow! Shojo fandom taken to the max! Great ideas!

I am Chubby Bunny!

Last weekend, my fiance Will and I celebrated our engagement with a shoujo manga (Japanese girls’ comics)-themed party, complete with manga DIY decorations, a magical cake, and all of our wonderful friends.

Will and I met in Japan, while we were living there teaching English for a few years. Our friends joked about how our relationship was like a corny shoujo manga story, which is where we got the idea for our theme! We are nerds through and through, and wanted to celebrate that along with our friends! (BTW “Labu labu” is a Japanese onomatopoeia word for being in love… la—bu.)

Like many brides-to-be, I spent a ridiculous amount of time scouring the internet for ideas on how to decorate our small venue on a non-existing budget, as well as incorporate our nerdy little theme. Luckily, there are already plenty of photos of vintage book crafts online, that I adapted…

Happy Thanksgiving! 2013

Thought I’d resurrect this old timey picture of chibi Anna in pilgrim attire ready to carve the turkey. The turkey doesn’t look too happy though! :3

I am thankful for my family who supported me through making the jump out of fast food into a job that pays a living wage. I am thankful for my siblings who are willing to lend a hand when I ask – and listen to me babble about cute crochet and Japan. :p I am thankful for those who supported my booth at Youmacon, those who’ve made me a better Etsian and for my blog followers . You guys really keep me thinking ahead so thank you. :3

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Jolly Mushroom Creations

Look what arrived in the mail~! Amis from Jolly Mushroom Creations on Etsy! So small I can cup them all in one hand. No foolin’.

My favorite would have to be the Ghost as it reminds me of a ghost I drew in one of my sketchbooks years ago and second would be the octopus but as everyone knows I like cute octopi. :> And horror of horrors – Luna just restocked the cute goldfish ami I really wanted! Nuuu… oh the cruelty!

Lovely Complex Anime

It’s been a long time but I’ve started watching Lovely Complex again. At its very core it is a romantic comedy series about a tall girl (Risa Koizumi) liking a short guy (Atsushi Otani).

Factoid: Lovely Complex is particularly notable as the manga-ka Aya Nakahara wrote the dialogue completely in Osaka-ben.

When Shojo Beat previewed the manga back in May 2007 I went nuts for the series! I read all I could online, looked up pictures, found the anime, wanted to be the voice actress for the English version and even made fanart, pixels and a fanpage. Yep. It was awesome. In fact, I still own the entire 17 volume manga series and have no plans on getting rid of it. It’s just that good. :3

Modded ‘Shroom Bunny – Pocket Sushi

A while back  I got this cute yet somewhat disturbing limbless bunny charm from Pocket Sushi. Since I keep my collection of awesome on my cork-board I look at that bunny every day. No joke.

“Aww it’s a bunny ‘shroom.” “It’s a bunny ‘shroom – It doesn’t have any legs.” “The bunny ‘shroom doesn’t have legs.”

To make a long and dull story short, I decided to give it limbs!

However in my quest for “cute” I think I made it even creepier! XD
