MY!!!! DUDES!!!!!

My first completed game project created while I’ve been on Patreon IS NOW AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD!!

The footage above is recorded directly from the game – it’s a good summary video of the visual style that all of my game projects will have~ 🎀

It also goes over what plans I have for future projects (0:20) and what games I have done in the past (1:00).

A Guide to All Those Kawaii Brands You See on Ebay, Storenvy, and Aliexpress

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

When you’re browsing for cute clothes in the style of Lolita, gyaru, mori girl, fairy-kei, and others, you may find in your searches through Ebay, Storenvy, Aliexpress and others that you begin to recognize certain pieces listed!  Maybe you’ll recognize the model wearing the fashions, or something about the photography will look familiar to similar listings you’ve found.  You have the vague idea that they’re probably TaoBao brands, but what are their names, and where do these listings originate from?

The thing about these marketplaces is that they very rarely actually list these items by name!  Knowing the originator of these pieces can help you shop around for them and get them at a fair price.  Plus, it’s just good to know where the things you’re buying come from.

Here is my quick guide to my favorite brands that I’ve encountered across these marketplaces!  It’s certainly not a comprehensive list, but maybe it can help you find some direction with your own browsing. :3

candyrainsample

Candy Rain

This is my favorite of all of the TaoBao brands available –
everything is lacy and ruffly, with light floral patterns and soft pastels!
Candy Rain models are usually posed around rich-looking rooms
set with flowers, tea or cakes, or outdoors in a garden setting.

Sellers:
Candy Rain’s YesStyle Brand Page
LoliLoli Shop for Lolita Princess 
– an Aliexpress seller
BOBON21 – another Aliexpress seller that stocks Candy Rain
Candy Rain’s TaoBao Page

 gogogirlsample

GOGO Girl

I hope I have the name of this brand correctly;
I only have their YesStyle page to go from.
It doesn’t refer to this brand by name on its TaoBao shop as far as I see. nn;

GOGO Girl is a very widespread brand on marketplaces
that features this model who is doll-like in cuteness!
She is posed against a wall in a cutesy interior room.
Again is the recurring theme of pastel colors and soft fabrics,
like sheer chiffon overlays.

Sellers:
GOGO Girl’s YesStyle Brand Page
PRO-G DEAL
 – Aliexpress seller that features GOGO Girl heavily
MONGPING finery – another Aliexpress seller
GOGO Girl’s TaoBao Page
Another TaoBao Page for this seller because who knows??

bobon21sample

BoBon21

That’s BO-bon, not BON-bon, like a certain bunny-related URL you might know of.
This brand surfaced as a cheaper alternative to Liz Lisa.
Many of their pieces are similar to Liz Lisa stylistically.
They are not listed on YesStyle.
Their usual model has the light strawberry-blonde hair pictured above.
She is usually posed against a blank wall, but as with all of these guidelines,
there are variations sometimes.

Sellers:
LoliLoli Shop for Lolita Princess – again!  Such a reliable seller for cute clothes.
BOBON21 – A seller that shares the name, but may not be officially connected.
BoBon21’s TaoBao Page

pinkdollsample

Pink Doll

Pink Doll is also Dabuwawa, and it features mature and elegant clothing!
Their models look older and more mature than the previous featured
kawaii brands, to match the look of their clothing line.
There are also often non-Asian models featured sometimes,
such as the blonde woman in the center above.
They are usually posed in interior spaces against curtains or similar.

Sellers:
Dabuwawa’s YesStyle Brand Page
One, Two, and Three different Aliexpress sellers for Pink Doll
Pink Doll’s TaoBao Page

Favorite Aliexpress Stores for Lolita, Gyaru, Fairy-Kei, Larme-Kei and Mori Girl!

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Oh my GOSH!!  It has been AGES AND AGES since I posted!  And I am so, so happy to be back!

I can’t say that I actually went anywhere. n_n;  Just got a little burned out updating here all the time.  I’ve been super active on Tumblr instead though!  And drawing, of course!  Always drawing~

Okay, anywhoozles, let’s roll right back into things~  Lately I have been OBSESSED with Aliexpress.  It’s like Ebay, except exclusive to Asian sellers, most of which are setting up shop with their same merchandise from Taobao.  And Taobao has SOME OF THE CUTEST, MOST PRINCESS-FUL CLOTHES EVER!  The same products being on Aliexpress make it easier to get your hands on those Taobao brands (which you normally would need a shopping service for), and Aliexpress has the advantage of being able to cancel your order and get a full refund at any time if you feel the slightest hesitation about your order, which is the huge downfall of Ebay imo (where you have to open up Paypal disputes and possibly not even get your money back if your claim isn’t approved).

ANYWAY.  Cutest stores I’ve found on Aliexpress for girly princess clothes, GO!

Loliloli Shop for Lolita Princess

Loliloli Shop for Lolita Princess

This is THE JACKPOT!!  Perfectly princessy Lolita clothing –
dresses, shoes, gorgeous stockings –
my screenshot above cannot fully encompass how well-stocked this store is.
My top recommendation!

bobon21store

BOBON21

While this seller has the same name as a favorite TaoBao brand,
I’m not sure that they are officially affiliated.
However, they are among the only sellers of Candy Rain
and BoBon21, so they are another store worth browsing!!

J-fashion Harajuku

J-fashion Harajuku

Another great winner!  This store doesn’t have strictly Lolita things,
but it has a wide variety of kawaii styles, and many pastel and anime/geek-themed products,
especially Sailor Moon items!

PRO-G DEAL

PRO-G DEAL

Looooook at how cuuuuute!!  Pro-G Deal has manymanymany items
from the Taobao brand Bobon21,
which is for sure one of the cutest pastel brands out there!
And what’s more, Pro-G Deal recently expanded to include many
ACTUAL Lolita items, such as JSK’s and skirts!!

Liz Lisa Sweet Girls

Liz Lisa Sweet Girls and Store No.734703 (lol)

These two are being lumped together because they have very similar selections!
They are both Liz Lisa sellers!  Figured I’d link to both since even though there’s bound to be
overlapping between products, there will surely be some items listed in one that aren’t in the other,
and it’s always a good idea to shop around~

MONGPING finery

MONGPING finery

This store carries gorgeous Mori girl items!!
And though they’re not pictured in the image,
they also stock Bobon21 items and other kawaii pastel styles as well!!

VV Elegant Fashion Co. Ltd.

DABUWAWA Wholesale & Retail, DABUWAWA & Pink Doll Trade Co.,
Shanghai DABUWAWA International Trading Co.

Three different suppliers for the lovely Taobao brand Pink Doll,
which provides some of the most elegant & mature clothing I have ever seen!

Artka_Aliexpress_Store_for_Earthy_Witches

Artka

Another of the elegant & mature selections,
Artka’s clothing makes me think of something that stylish Earthy witches would wear.
The color palette is darker than the usual Larme-style Mori girl, but there is
something forest-like and enchanting about them anyway!

Soul Vision

Soul Vision

My last featured store for the day isn’t for clothes – it’s home decor!
Living and sleeping in a pretty space is essential for all princesses!
I loooooove the bedding that they have here,
and all of the furniture and homewares are so elegant as well~

Patreon Monthly Summary – November 2017

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

🦄 WHAT A FANTASTIC MONTH!! 🦄

Creating all of that art for the interior of a cozy little house was so much fun, and produced such a lovely result!

And then, there was the actual creation of the Welcome Video, which was finished and made available for download and everything!! 🎀💝🎀

And THEN, work was begun on the NEXT GAME!!  Fans of cozy, homey simulation games should love Cute Town Sim~ 🏘️

Here’s what was accomplished this month:

  • New Moods & Attitudes: This post is the first one to show off the different animations and expressions that the heroine shows in the video~
  • Super Rough Sketchbook Pic;;;: Here, you can see the early sketchbook version of the illustrated art work that’s also shown at the top of this post!
  • New Art Underway~: The next stage of the WIP for that art again~ 🎨
  • Last Little Flavorful Touches for the Interior Map~: Cool little dust particles and flavor text for lots of examinable items were implemented in this post!
  • Neato Screen Wipe Transition: It is seriously pretty neato.
  • SECRET ART: The Welcome Video has several little screenshot mockup art works, and this post is the first one to show off a couple of them. 🖼️ There is also a nice list of other achievements I also worked on around the same time.
  • !DOWNLOAD! Welcome Video (yes, it’s playable!): THE DOWNLOAD FOR THE GAME THE WELCOME VIDEO WAS CREATED WITH!!  Check it out!! 💫💞💫
  • Next Project Under Way! Cute Town Sim!!: This is the introductory post for the next game (which is free and publicly-viewable), listing all of its anticipated features~ 🎵 What do you think of it? 🤗
  • Super Preliminary Map Drawing: The beginnings of what the explorable maps will look like are shown in this post, with lots of little details for what you might find in each! 🏞️
  • A New Heroine: The first new character for the new game is shown here, and it is the one that you play as! 💜 Do you like her lavender hair?

In December, I will keep showing new things for Cute Town Sim, such as new characters! 🙋 Getting introduced to your new neighbors is a good way to learn your way around a new town~ 🏘️

…Which is actually relevant to me, because I am in the process of moving to a lovely new living space, too! 💖 I will do my absolute best to keep up the pace of creating art work.  I’m not terribly worried about losing much time, since I thought that I wasn’t doing well at the beginning of November, and yet it turned out SO productive!! ✨💖✨
