I'd freak if you did the Eeveeloutions (especially Flareon!). I'd totally work it, or at least try to!!!!

I would totally just DIE from happiness if you would make a disney villain themed pinafore!!! especially one of jafar and ursula or a disney side character like GENIE :D

I have made stemepunk version of characters as commissions if that counts XD
Wed Jun 18, 2014, 11:41 AM
I was wondering if you could make a steampunk themed pinafore XD

Have you considered any Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) inspired pinafores? Or The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices?
Mon Sep 23, 2013, 5:00 PM
I said Hogwarts houses but also Dr. Horrible & Captain Hammer, Wolverine, and The Joker pleeeassse (PS I will buy Slytherin as soon as it's done)

Also: Zelda Wind Waker Nayru, Din and Farore symbols; they're simple, and gorgeous colours, and I would so buy one..

Contest Deadline Extended and a Trip!

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 29, 2014, 2:47 PM

Hello everybody! Just here with a couple of important updates. I have some good news for those of you still hoping to join the art contest! The deadline has been extended until September 8th? Why? Let me tell you (important for those also not interested in the art contest)!

As I've been mentioning, I'll be gone for a chunk of September. Starting today, I'll be getting ready for a trip, so I won't really be available to answer questions and commission requests right away. Between August 31st and September 7th, I will have zero internet access, so I definitely won't be answering messages until the 8th.

This will also spill over into the store. Since I won't be back into the country until the 7th, any Ready to Ship orders placed during those dates won't be shipped until I get back =3 Just keep that in mind.

I'm hoping to accept a new batch of orders sometime in mid-late September. I will announce as soon as I know. Once I get back from my trip, I'll have a better idea of a timeline. It hopefully shouldn't take me too long to finish the orders from the 17th since I should receive all of the supplies by the time I return 

Have a fantastic week, everyone!

Hi! Sorry for the sudden question, but something has got me curious. 
I'm thinking about ordering the Inuyasha dress whenever you are open 
But I read down below that the Petticoat is not included. 

And I'm sorry for having a severe dumb moment, 
but what exactly is the petticoat? 

I just can't figure it out! Haha. 
I hope you don't mind the random question ... 
But I really enjoy your work :)

It's a tulle fluffy thing that's under the skirt. It's what determines the level of fluffiness  =3

Yeahs I was just thinking ... I finally caved and I just want that dress :) 
So we just gotta wait and see huh? haha!
