I asked the jewelry engineer at NekoJin Designs take the Sailor Kitty charms I bought from Yamino and make them into a charm bracelet!
It looks great and I wear it every day! Sailor Scouts AND kitties! In one! On my arm!!
Aww! This is so cool! I love seeing what people make out of them! Earrings, necklaces, keychains, phone charms, pet tags, zipper pulls… they can go on pretty much anything!
Many people were asking what the kanji on each Sailor Mew’s coin said! Here is a little graphic I made to put next to the charms at conventions. =D
Interestingly, Venus Kitty has been my bestseller! I had thought it would be Mercury or Jupiter (for their unique designs) but I guess more people care about getting some extra luck in love. XD
Heroescon and Meetups in Charlotte, NC!
Ash and I will be at the Artist Alley in Heroescon from Friday to Sunday! Look for the giant Sister Claire banner!
I’ll have all my Sailor Mew charms, and several Sister Claire/Adventure Time/MLP/misc fandom prints! (Including a lot of femslashy stuff!)
If you aren’t coming to the con but will still be in Charlotte this weekend and want to come meet me and Ash, we will have meetups!
Meetup times and locations:
Tonight! Thurs, 6th June: 9:30 at Fruiticup
Fri, 7th June: 8:00 at Pho Hoa
Sat, 8th June: 8:00 at Pho Hoa
I can’t wait to see you there! =)
A lot of people have mentioned wanting to cosplay as Luna from my my Sailor Mew AU, or some Sister Claire characters, but as of yet, I haven’t seen one at cons! Most of them are pretty easy too (Claire and most of the nuns have really simple designs), but some of them could also be a fun challenge for cosplay experts!
So here is some incentive. If anyone comes to my table at future conventions dressed as any of my characters, I will give you a hug and a free sketch. <3
At last, my Sailor Mew charms have arrived! People stopping by my table at Anime Boston this weekend will have the first shot at buying one! I have very limited quantities (just over 20 of each design) but if they are popular I will make more, including charms based on the Outer Scouts! (These will also eventually be available online!)
The charms have many uses, you can use them for necklaces, earrings, zipper pulls, phone straps, the sky is the limit!
As Winkle is modeling above, they also make cute accessories to give your own cats some good luck. <3
I don't really know where to go to ask about the Sailor Mews... Anyway, where did you come up with the idea for the Mews? Did the SM reboot inspire you to do it? I thought of a really cute idea for later on when you do Mamoru/Tuxedo-kitty, how about a before and after picture? The before being when Usagi and Mamoru couldn't stand each other and the after well obviously when they fall for each other. Tell me what you think, okay? Ciao ;3
Yes, I was inspired by all the hype about the new Sailor Moon. Or rather, I started rewatching the original to have it fresh in my mind, and I became a big fan of Luna and her close relationship with Amy:
and I had this weird idea, what if their species were flipped?
After that I wanted to design everyone else, and a different story evolved out of it.
As for your idea, it sounds cute! You should totally draw it. =)
I got an email with a photo of my charms from InkitLabs! They were very helpful and responded quickly to all my questions while setting the files up for print. I can’t wait for them to arrive!
And I also ordered my first set of Sailor Mew t-shirts last night, going with the popular vote of dark purple. (Perhaps in the future if people feel strongly enough about it, we can have more colors available.)
I will have the charms at Anime Boston, as well as a print of the t-shirt graphic! The shirts themselves will not arrive in time, sadly. But never fear, everything will be available in my online store eventually.
Of course, I will also have a lot of other merch there, including Sister Claire prints, and Adventure Time and My Little Pony art. =)
It looks like the shirts might not be sent to me before Anime Boston. Argh! They will eventually be available online though, and ready in time for Conneticon!
Speaking of the shirts, can you help me decide what color to print them on? I’m having trouble deciding between nice subtle yellow or a more classic shoujo pink- but they really pop nicely against dark purple, too!
Preview of a print, and (hopefully, if I can get it on time) t-shirt available at Anime Boston! (and eventually in my online store. <3
