Before I get to the much anticipated pups, I should mention a small article about KimonoKitsy Studios in the East Oahu People!
It's an off-shoot paper from the Honolulu Advertiser that gets printed specifically for East Oahu residents! Technically, the studio resides in what is deemed "East Oahu", thus a small feature article about us and our webcomic, nemu*nemu.
Photos were taken on completely different days - but I think I'm wearing the exact same shirt? o_O? (Or at least the same color...)
A few notes:
1) My mom, rather than KS' mom, made the stuffed pups~
2) Book prices are indeed $13.95, but there is an at-convention discount~ :D Woot! One bonus for local folks!
Now, onto the news most have been eagerly awaiting!
Tomorrow, KS and I will be at the Hawaii Convention Center setting up our booth for Kawaii Kon 2007!
We really can't believe that time has flown by so quickly! We just started our comic a year ago and it would seem almost mandatory to have stuffed pup replicas of Anpan and Nemu for sale! But it definitely wasn't a spur of the moment decision - these little pups went into production in January. With help from my mom, we went through about 5 different prototypes before we settled on these pups.
Made completely from scratch, each pup is handmade from velour, mostly hand-stitched and are unique in their own way. Each pup has a nemu*nemu label attached to his hindquarters to remind everyone just where they came from! :D
Anpan & Nemu want to go home with you!
These pups are by no means mass-produced. We have a limited run of 50 (25 Anpan, & 25 Nemu!).
Instead of being for sale, these special pups will be available for adoption! What this entails... more details tomorrow!
The scarves and 'kerchiefs are made for sets sold ONLY in pairs~ Supplies are limited as they too are hand-made!
Anpan's scarf is made from a nice shiny satin while Nemu's 'kerchief is made from a soft stretchy velour.
