Kiriban on deviantArt!

Because everyone else is doing it, and it seems cool, I've decided that I will do it too! Especially because I'm just starting out with dA, and I need more visitors. 8D


KIRIBAN 1,000!

1,000 seems like a good number to start off at, yes? So, let's make it a big one! If you get the 1,000th page view on my dA, screencap it, and show it to me, and you will win! You don't need to be a deviantArt member, as long as you get the 1,000th page view~

What do you win, you ask?

A FREE standard anime/manga style sailor fuku, in the character of your choice! Cannon and Otaku senshi are accepted.

By standard, I mean:
1 full body bodice
1 solid color collar (with stripes, of course)
1 solid color skirt
2 solid color bows
1 solid color choker
accessories (brooch, tiara, choker charm, etc)

If you are the lucky winner, and would like a different style or something more detailed, I will be willing to make it, with an up-charge for the extras.

Items that are not included for free include: Shoes, wigs, wings, and shipping. I would be happy to make these items for you, but they're just not something I can offer for free.

So, if you, or anyone you know may be interested in winning a free fuku, send them my way!

Be on the look out, and good luck! As we get closer to the deadline, I'll post reminders, so some lucky person can catch it. :D!


I'm moving!

I know I just opened this journal, but I never really liked the name, so I'm moving journals!

I'm in the process of moving everything over to the new journal, so please be patient.

I'll update with the new journal address/name once I get it all finished! :D

Sakky: Usagi Wig 002

Finally straight Straightened extensions

Finally! I've been straightening these extensions for a week, and they were just not cooperating. The wavy patch up there is after 5 water straightenings. I didn't take pictures of the others that have had 10+, because they look exactly the same. They would straighten, but once they dried, they would puff back.

So I took drastic measures! Finally, it worked, and now they're straight. I was a little worried when I first got the extensions, because they felt a little coarse, and weren't very shiny. I disregarded it, assuming it was from them being wavy, and it was. Now that they're straight, they're super soft and silky, and shiny! :D I'm so excited.

2 packs down, 4 to go. :x

Time: 1.5 hours

Sakky: Usagi Wig 001

I got the supplies yesterday, and got the base wig out and put on a head. I'll let it air out and settle a bit before I work with it.

Original Extensions
As I said, the manufacturer didn't have any straight extensions, so I had to get wavy. They're definitely wavy.

First Straightening
First straightening. It's going to take some time...

They're on their 4th straightening, with quite a few in the future.

Time: 10 minutes per straightening

Yay! Finally!

Bodice Trimmed

I got your bodice back, so this is the new one! :D Trimmed and ready to go. The trim looks incredibly angled, but it's just the way it's sitting on the dress form. Just a few more small pieces, and I can put it together~

Time: 30 minutes
Trim time: 5.5 hours
I have decided that my SeraMyu/Sailor Moon Musical collection is way too small. Therefore, I have decided that I will work for Musical stuff!

If you have something from the musicals that I do not (check this gallery) I may be willing to work out a deal. How much the item is worth will decide how much of a discount you'll get (it may even be free!).

I am mainly interested in official DVDs, CDs, and photobooks, but if you have something else, don't be afraid to offer!

I'm also interested in a few non-musical things, such as the manga (Sailor Moon and Sailor V, both English and Japanese, preferably full sets), and possibly the anime DVDs as well (preferably the box sets). Again, if you have anything you think I may be interested in, feel free to offer. :D

If you have any questions, let me know, and I'll be glad to answer them. :D

Kiriban! Halfway there~

500 pageviews, woohoo! We're halfway to the 1,000 kiriban on my DA, http://mannap.deviantart.com/.

These next 500 page views will go by fast, so keep checking!

If you missed the details, you can find them here.

Keep an eye out, and good luck!

The tissue lamé finally came in. So yay, more progress! I feel like I've been slacking cause I haven't worked on it in a while, even though there's been nothing to work on.

Back Bow

Just the back bow. I ran out of interfacing (if it's not one thing, it's another?), so I'll finish the front bow once I can get some more. :D! I'm really loving the color of this fabric.

Time: 30 minutes
Trim time: 1.5 hours

Poptart: [Myu] Sailor Mercury 004

Because my husband works long hours, means I have plenty of time to trim.

Trimmed and ready to be attached. :D! I'm waiting on some swatches that should be here in a day or so, and then I'll be able to get the fabric for your bows and boot covers. :D

Trim time: 6 hours
