Lack of updates

Hey guys, sorry for the severe lack of updates.  My health hasn't been so great... it's pretty bad.  I'll get back to working on things and updating more when things (hopefully) get under control.

Deluxe Sheryl Nome earring soon to be released!

劇場版マクロスF シェリル・ノームコレクション シルバーイヤリング台座付き(片耳)

In celebration of the new Macross Frontier movie (as well as the end of the franchise), a deluxe version of Sheryl Nome's famous earring will go up for sale sometime in April (I think).  Unlike the previous versions, this earring is not costume quality, but fine jewelry.  It's made out sterling silver, pink sapphire, blue sapphire, and green cubic zirconia.  It also comes with the brass stand for display purposes (Alto held the earring on this same stand in Itsuwari Utahime).  It is available for pre-order for $173.40 over at Bandai's website.

However, you will need a shopping service in order to buy it.  Price does not include shipping from Japan.

I'd buy it, but the $173.40 is for one earring.  I don't know about you guys, but I like wearing two earrings on my ears.  If they were selling the earrings as a pair, then I'd consider it.

Working on a wig for a client

I do wig commissions whether they're for daily use or cosplay purposes.  Lately I've been working on a Bakura wig (from Yu-Gi-Oh!) for a client.  It's not the easiest wig in the world (I've spent about three hours working on the bangs alone), but I hope to have it completed by next week, so I'll be finished with it two months early.  It's just... those baaaannnngggsss... when I'm done with it, it'll probably be a hybrid of it looking realistic and a small hint of the anime style.  I'm trying to make it look as realistic as possible, though.

I haven't hair sprayed anything into place yet since I'm still trying to figure out these bloody bangs!!

More work on the bangs tomorrow!  They're a pain to shape!

Falling a little behind D:

Sorry I haven't been updating as much as I usually do.  I've been trying to figure out how to do something and being the perfectionist I am, it'll take a while for me to complete it.  Hopefully, I'll have more updates next week. Really need to get that small jewelry tutorial up...
