First things first: UNICORN HAT! More on that later.
Next things next: I have a shiny, new, exactly the same as the old one laptop! Lol. Well, it’s a newer OS which is always annoying. But it works and I have yet to zap it with static electricity! Every time I’ve done that on my previous computers it made startup take another minute or so. The last one took up to 15 minutes just to get its shit together when I turned it on.
Anyway, I’ve sort of abandoned the old to-make list because I now have a show I’m doing on Valentine’s Day and need to approach inventory a little differently. The lovely thing about online sales is that I can just remake and restock things as they’re sold. This way I have to guess what will go over well and then make a bunch of it so I don’t run out. Basically that means tons and tons of black hats, the grey with pink ears, probably the charcoal grey will go over well, too. Then I have to have enough of other stuff that I can fill a table with different things.
Of course… this is going to be at a bar on V-Day so who knows how much I’ll even actually sell, lol.
My tutus will likely be along for the ride, too. I figure silly hats and tutus are great things to sell at a bar. I’ll probably bring other stuff if I have time to make any. I’ve been thinking about scrunchies, because those have actually been making a little bit of a comeback lately, but I’d have to deal with fabric and all that and I’m not sure I really want to do it.
I am planning to do a few paintings. Depending on how well they turn out I may do more than a few. I’ll post photos when/if they get done.
Now, the unicorn hat… I was mostly just making it to see how long it took and if I enjoyed it enough to add them to my regular line up. The short response is too long and not really. But a friend of mine bought this one, I have someone else who’s ordered a custom one, and I have a friend I’m seeing tomorrow night that might be interested in yet another. In a perfect world I’d like to have time to make 5 or so with different manes to take to the show. We’ll see if I can get that done. In the meantime, here‘s the rest of the unicorn photos.
When I have a better idea of what all I want to make for the show, I’ll put up that list and post updates on my progress.
Anyway, it’s a new year! Yay!
