|It came in a set of 5.|
Her mom wrote me a thank you letter. It's in hiragana so I can actually read it!
Next up, a present to myself! Last month, I stumbled upon a Japanese movie title called "Suki da,". I saw a short clip of it on youtube. It really intrigued me, so I looked everywhere for a torrent, but couldn't find any. I finally decided to reward myself after the long month of plushie-making, so I bought it! With the EMS shipping, it cost a good 60~70$. o_0
|It came with a picture booklet and even the music score for the theme song.|
The movie was breathtaking. It's an art film, and I think a lot of people wouldn't have the patience for it (there's not much dialogue), but it was really to my liking. I've already watched it twice, and I BAWLED. Oh gosh, especially the second viewing... I usually don't cry, but somehow, it was too beautiful that tears kept flowing. It was worth the 70$+ hassle of changing regions! Anyways, I really want to make a print design for a totebag in inspiration with the cinematography.
And last but not least, my last gift (that came with a nasty surprise) is the infamous stovetop steamer for setting dyes! I call it the mirrored coffin because that's just what it is.
|The whole case sits on a stovetop (and sorta hangs off the sides)|
|The fabric is placed on the metal rod inside.|
Now my wallet needs to rest a little. I'll be purchasing an industrial sewing machine in due course, so the wallet will yet again be screaming at me about the damage. o_0
