I don’t always get to post on this particular blog of mine but I have been crafting for 9 weeks straight now XDDD  So this particular project was started some time after lunch and I finished before dinner.  It’s my long overdue Totoro hat!

For those of you who are not familiar with Totoro, you have to watch the animated feature Tonari no Totoro! (Well, it is also known as My Neighbor Totoro.) Totoro is an interesting creature and there’s even a catbus. Join sisters Mei and Satsuki as they go and have adventures with Totoro. XD

Totoro hat

I used acrylic yarn for this project and mostly double crochet stitch. I originally thought of making it with single crochet but I thought that it might be too hot for comfort in the Philippines. Single crochet would give it a fabric that’s more dense but I thought that maybe a more loose type of crocheted fabric makes more sense. I’d have to try wearing it on regular days to assess that. For the ears, I used a soft kind of wire so they don’t always fold down right away.

Will I sell Totoro hats? Possibly. If I have enough grey yarn, that is. 🙂

Before I forget, it’s Eiga Sai time. Too bad I haven’t been feeling well and Eiga Sai at the Shang has already started. Oh well. In any case, there are still some movies to be shown until August in CCP.

I like Japanese things: Pinky:St dolls, bento boxes, manga, craft magazines, etc. One of my friends and her friend has set up an online business for people like me. Though of course, I didn’t order Pinkies anymore because I have HLJ for that. As for magazines, I thought it would be great to try out their service. They already have my copy of the Gothic and Lolita Bible on hold and have yet to bug them about delivery costs if I go by Kokubin just to be sure because of the weight of the mook/magazine/book. If you’re getting curious, check out their blog on livejournal called Sashimi Deshou.

I was in Mangaholix last night after meeting my friend Renee in Bo’s Coffee. (We fangirled over L’arc en Ciel before I checked out the cosplays and stuff inside the convention hall! Hah!) Even Rie (my Pinky) was fangirling before the con…

Rie and Natsumi with Renee's Hydepod

Anyhow, on to the pictures from Mangaholix. I only got pictures of people walking around and those who were having photo-ops with people using awesome DSLRs.

Jac Ting Lim was there! Asuka Picture 255 Picture 258

Rozen Maiden group shot Bleach group One Piece + Bleach group

Not that much pictures. In any case I must add that I loved a particular Lolita outfit:

Picture 268

I am not sure if her dress is branded but it looks it. Anyhow, I was too shy to ask. I just had to take her picture even if her headpiece was already off her head. I think the rose just made her look even prettier.

Other high points of the event: Urbandub had 4 songs. They played towards the announcement of winners. Awesome! I got the autographs of Lalay and Gabby of Urbandub. Ureshii~! I wish JM was there because he’s the one who enjoys their music than myself.

I’d like to cosplay again one of these days. Waah~! I had fun in Mangaholix and will love to go to another con one of these days. 🙂

After more than a month of waiting, Haruhi’s here and I really just had to make her wear the bunny outfit as soon as I got her.

o hai~

What can I say? She really looks cute. Her face is quite adorable even with other hair from the other Pinkies. She has a nice face, if you ask me now. There’s something about her eyes that tell you that she will take over the world and nothing will stop her. It was a long wait but it was all worth it.

Soon enough, Asahina Mikuru will join her once I meet up with my friend who came from Japan!
