Here’s my obi-corset and kimono top for a Japanese-themed ball. I only decided to make it a week before after finding real yukata fabric for sale at Spotlight (seriously, I was so happy I bought the whole roll!).

It was bit of a rush job to sew it all with no patterns to go from, I butchered an old jacket for the kimono top, but I think it just cost me more time as it was stretch fabric and a real pain to work with. The black top and skirt I wore under these are Qutie Frash brand clothing from Japan and the obijime is borrowed from my Amaterasu costume.

My sister’s partner asked me if I had a hair piece… and I realised I hadn’t made one, so I put the kanzashi hair piece together in the last half an hour I had before I had to get ready! I’d never made one before, but it was fun! I’ll have to try making others sometime!

I finished it! So many scales~ but this was really fun to design.

I have a bit of thing about always drawing a piece of fanart for any game I really enjoy! I dithered a little, as there’s so much Pokemon fanart out there, I wanted to do something a little different and approach this one more like a traditional Japanese obake/monster ukiyo-e painting. I’m sure that’s also been done before, but here’s my take on my Mega Charizard with some more traditional Asiatic dragon features mixed in.

So I caved in and made myself a Helix Fossil (ALL HAIL THE HELIX FOSSIL!) It’s about 14cm/5 inches across, made of sculpey.
Yep, Twitch Pokemon bit me good! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed Pokemon THIS much when I WAS PLAYING IT! How the heck is it so much fun? XD

Also, for Perthies, Wai-con is in one day! I’ll be running my art stall as usual (just to the side of the entrance, turn left when you go in and we’re there). My helix isn’t for sale, but I promise to let you bathe in its glory if you come by my stall. <3

~*~*~*LUPA’S 5000 ETSY SALES CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY!!!!!*~*~*~

So over the weekend, the Green Wolf Etsy shop got its 5000th sale—woohoo! This was a great thing to have happen on the heels of unveiling my redesigned website, the greenwolf.com :)

As a way of saying thank you, I am giving away not one, but four fabulous prizes! Here’s what I’m giving away, one to each of four winners:

Giveaway #1: One red coyote headdress, made by me, with absolutely beautiful coloration! He’s completely finished and ready to wear. His tail’s a little poor, and he’s got a few flaws on his muzzle, but for a damaged, craft-quality hide he turned out into a lovely headdress!

Giveaway #2: One shaped red fox mask with matching tail. The tail doesn’t yet have an attachment, which means the winner gets to choose whether it’ll have a hand-braided leather belt loop, a carabiner, or one of my traditional braided leather belts. 

Giveaway #3: A signed copy of New Paths to Animal Totems: Three Alternative Approaches to Creating Your Own Totemism, AND you’ll get a signed copy of Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden when it comes out in May 2014! 

Giveaway #4: My animal menagerie set of six animal claw and tooth necklaces!

How Do I Enter?

You can reblog this post here on Tumblr, OR post a link to it on another social media site like Facebook, Google Plus, or Twitter. Just make sure I know where it’s been posted.

The Rules

Entrants must be US residents 18 years or older. (Apologies to younger and international folks.) You do NOT have to be following me (though follows are always appreciated!) and followers will not be privileged over non-followers. You must have your ask box open or otherwise have an easy way for me to contact you.

You can only reblog twice per week, with a week starting on Sunday and ending on the following Saturday. Any entries over two per week will be discarded. The giveaway ends at 6pm PST on Thursday, April 3, 2014, rain, shine, or site crashes.

The four winners will be chosen using a random number generator. If a winner has not responded to me within a week of my initial notification that they’ve won, or if they turn down the prize, another winner will be selection at random.

One winner for each specific thing, or do you go first winner gets first choice and so on? Just curious. :) (Granted I’d be the oddball to ask you if any of them seems to be more inclined to go home with me if I win something since I trust your judgement LOL) But ee!

(For those who don’t know, Lupa is big on ethical sourcing and whatnot, and also does quality work - I have at least a few things from her in the house already. <3)

I will choose a winner for each prize at random using a random number generator; you don’t get to choose (apologies!)

For the weekenders…

hey, have you reblogged this lately? You only have one more week!

This ends tomorrow! Look at how few notes there are—you could totally have a chance :)
