🧶♥️Sailor Venus Amigurumi ♥️🧶

She’s my latest doll in the making. I tried using spray paint this time as my usual method is time-consuming. It works but the scent is strong. I may want to invest in an air spray system that can use acrylic paints. I felt her legs were stubby. So I added some length to it….

Sailor Jupiter Amigurumi joins the gang

A photo collage of periodic points of making her. Some shots were taken at night because weekends are the only time I can take photos in the day time. Her mouth went through a few iterations. And the whole gang so far. Next I’ll be adding Sailor Venus. Next weekend I’ll be uploading the video…

Weekend art shenanigans

Such interesting are these photos of art projects. /s This is how I spend my free time. So admirable and exciting, I know.

Minamoto Sakura Watercolor Chibi Art

I’m on episode 11(latest as of writing this post) of Zombie Land Saga. This is fan art is one of the main characters, Minamoto Sakura. This idol show is not your typical idol show(most of the idol anime puts me to sleep, the character designs are where my interest starts and ends) It’s funny, it’s…

How is RedBubble working for you?

It’s going well– wait something is off there. So I’m trying out the art marketplaces, Redbubble, Society 6, and maybe TeeSpring(haven’t tried it yet) My thoughts so far? Well, I’ve made sales on Redbubble! Oh gosh, I can hear you now. No, no Lamborghini buying(I wouldn’t buy one if I could afford it. #frugal!!) I…

My first time using acrylic paints on a t-shirt[Look Book]

Watch the process of making tshirts below:   So I’m an avid watercolor fan. I hardly use other paint mediums because my love for watercolor is so high. This week I’ve been in a transitional period. I don’t have access to all of my art supplies so I bought some to use on the go. The…

[Fanart Friday’s] Lazy weekend Gaia avatars.

I’ve been rather bored in the transitional period of my life. I have my Mac and my touchscreen laptop with me with limited internet connection(only on my iPhone). So I kill time listening to music or listening to YouTube videos and playing around with art programs. Open source softwares used include Gimp, FireAlpaca, and Sketchbook…

Crochet Plaid Skirt [Lookbook]

I adore plaid. I’ve seen plaid crocheted items on the web before. So I decided I wanted a crochet plaid mini skirt. Thus a mini was born.

The evolution of my amigurumi(and new doll introduction)

Oh hey there you. MikuSama here! Hope you’re having a bubbly day! My latest doll–er at least one of them, since I started another one– is Sakura! That pink hair screams a sakura blossom to me. Yes, she’s modeled heavily off of Kaname Madoka. I do intend to make her a magical transformation of Madoka. My…

My not-so-stellar experience selling crocheted stuff

Disclaimer: This blog post is not meant to dissuade or discourage anyone out there who sells their crochet work or dreams of doing so. If you find your efforts are paying off, by all means, go make a killing!!  Hi. If you’ve spoken to me within that last couple of years, you’d know I’m very…

Trying a new medium—colored pencils!!!

Colored pencils. Great, portable, coloring tools. A bitch to always need to sharpen them. So colored pencils are “new” to me. I’ve used them in the past. Didn’t really care for them. “Ugh, you have to sharpen them all the time.” -Artist first world problems. The real bitch is when you sharpen them so much they…

Orange Creamsicle Crochet Lolita Dress[Photo spread]

I just completed my latest lolita dress. I call it lolita because it’s the fashion type that I’m aiming for. Is it a perfect lolita? No, not by lolita standards(I’m not wearing bloomers. So scandalous!!!) Then again, what lolita makes their dresses out of yarn? None? Okay, I thought so as well. I’m being a…

The trend is on(crochet crop top)

I’m not a trend follower or anything. I am trying to make a quick buck to pay off loans(it’s available for sale in a local boutique, not online) Also, those leggings. They aren’t cutting it. Again, not a look I personally go for.  

Topless Moe Harley Quinn[NSFW]

Yeah, no nips are showing. There’s not too much to say about these except—- glarsh I love how it turned out!! Well, aside from accidentally painting over over Harley’s hair on the side. When will I stop being so cheap and buy a bottle of.. well I can’t remember the name. It’s for watercolor to…

Watermelon Theme Crochet Dress [Photo Spread]

A watermelon theme dress is something I’ve wanted in my wardrobe for a while. So in line with utilizing my stash to create things, I made a watermelon themed dress. It turned out lovely if I do say so myself! I made the hat ages ago. The hat needed a companion. Thus, the dress was…

Amigurumi Saitama and friends[Lookbook]

I think Saitama may be a ladies’ man. Watch out!! She’s more than willing to lead him sto tray from the hero realm– to the yarn store!!!! I adore the details on him. It looks so spot on cartoon style!! Saitama does not seem down with the whole friend selfie thing. A family of Christmas…

Zephyr, the elf princess

Zephyr-sama! You shall be a great leader one day — stop teasing your brothers please! Zephyr is a princess of an underworld. The species of ogres and elves is vast when it comes to appearances. Some will literally give you nightmares if you look at them(they kinda enjoy that ability though.) Others, like Zephyr, you…

[WIP]Crochet Lolita Dress+ Matching Doll~ Pt. 2

It’s always a perfect occasion to adorn yourself in yarn~ -MikuMarmalade Zephyr(the giant amigurumi doll) and I visited my family on my holiday break. I recently completed my red crochet Lolita inspired dress and was eager to wear it out! What do you do when you take photos in a dress with flair. You twirl…

Crochet Link Hat(Zelda)+Pattern Link

So this past Wednesday I was taking my lunch break from school when one of the cafe workers in the coffee shop asked me how much I would charge to make her a Link hat. I told her I don’t sell or accept commissions. Then that was that. Or was it? I felt rather ambitious…

Kaname Madoka fanart and lingerie(NSFW)

Hey Homura!! So lately I’ve been on an ecchi, mildly lewd drawing spree. I know, I usually draw chibis. Change. It’s a beautiful, inevitable thing. ` I don’t know why I keep drawing things late at night as I’m a morning bird. I draw it. It looks super flawless! Then the next morning my facial…

The curvaceous waifu Rem

Hi, Homura. I binged on Re:Zero the anime during my break off from college. First quarter completed with straight A’s. I’m proud of you, Homura! I loved Rem and decided I wanted art of her. So what better way to fulfil that desire art than to create art for her? So I drew her. Late…

A rad punk Miku look(watercolor painting)

You seem to replace your brain with your heart– oh wait… wrong singer. Miku is wearing a heart purse, it’s supposed to look semi-realistic but have an element of fantasy to it. That’s why on her shirt there’s no heart. We all know what’s inside of her purse as well– a wallet, cell phone, keys,…

Toadette+ Juri Crossover

Hey, Homura!! I have a riddle for you! What happens when you mix a street fighter with a Mushroom Kingdom citizen? Watch the video and find out~

Toshiro Hitsugaya Amigurumi Plush

Aaaw he is going to chop you up with his sword. He is very threatening. He is very dangerous. –Because he’s so gosh darn cute. He thinks he’s gonna cut someone. In reality, he can’t harm a fly. You know, being made of yarn and having a plastic play sword isn’t effective for battle. But…

Jigoku Usagi(crossover art)

Another fan art crossover of Hell Girl(Jigoku Shoujo) and something else. In this installment, it is Usagi Tsukino, better known as Sailor Moon. I am liking this more than Jigoku Miku. Perhaps it’s the moon background. Anywho, which crossover from Hell will I create next? Mwuhahahahaa– *chokes on leek*

Jigoku Miku(crossover art)

  A grunge filter makes it look aged. Added creepy factor. 😈 I’m watching Jigoku Shoujo season 4 at the moment. I decided to draw Miku as Jigoku Shoujo. It’s such a good show. I’m really not accustomed to drawing my eyes in this style. It was a challenge which I can see rather clearly….

Amigurumi Artemis and Luna photo gallery

Everyone crocheter should crochet a cat. It’s like a right of passage. You crochet a granny square then a cat. Then you crochet a hoard of them and wonder what you’re doing with your life. Introducing Luna and Artemis. Because of reasons. I gave them to my cousin for Christmas of 2016. Freehand amigurumi cats.

Behold– a cat girl!~

Because the world could always use another portrait of a cat girl.~ I love how I colored her in greyscale colours. I’ve never done that before. If I ever wanted to not have colour I’d digitally take the color away, using a desaturation tool on a photo editing software.

Fan Art Friday’s! Ezra from Fairy Tail[Photo Spread]

Today is the day that I will draw something that I’m proud of!! -Grateful that it turned out well. Yeah go me! It’s Lightening Equip Ezra Scarlet from Fairy Tail.   Tons of reference photos from the internet.

Fan Art Friday’s!!! Lucy Heartfilia Watercolor

So I’m boarding the transfer bus this fine Thursday morning to college. The usual. I bring my sketchbook with no prior plan on what to draw. While I wait for the bus to leave the terminal I ponder on what I want to draw. I want to search the Pinterest machine to inspiration but my…

The red headed MikuMarmalade avatar

Avatar originates from website Gaiaonline   Oh boy did I enjoy drawing that hair. I accidentally painted a horn red forgetting it was a horn and not another spike. I formally blame this on watching anime while painting. Moral of the story, don’t paint and watch TV kiddos. Red stuff gets in undesirable places. Mwuhahahaha.

Photoshoot of amigurumi doll, Ran~

Hey, Homura. There sure isn’t anything unusual about these photos at a fast food place. Nope. Nothing at all. Every day at a restaurant there will be an adorable amigurumi doll dining in and play Mario Kart on a 3DS for a few minutes. …oh that’s not the case? Oops. 😅<<<< gt;<<< ><< p>< /p>

Aya and the yogi

Aya, the bronie, threatened to throw a tantrum if I didn’t take her to my yoga class Tuesday. I can’t say no to my little sister’s cuteness…. So she went. It was her first or second(who knows what dolls do when you sleep) yoga session and she mastered the cobra pose. Go, Aya!

Rainbow Knit Top

This is something I decided to knit at midnight Saturday morning at a friend’s house. Have you ever started a project and didn’t have a purpose for it at the beginning? Well that’s what happened with the purple bulky yarn and a set of circular needles. Then I thought I want a rainbow top. I…

WIP 〜🎵 Crochet Rainbow Skirt

June 14, 2017 MikuMarmalade is obsessed with crocheting Tutu skirts. Even her 3DS has been neglected. I totally have no regrets. Well, maybe just one. I went to the yarn aisle more times than planned and left with yarn. Oh well, I’m satisfied with the purchases. Here I am twirling around in my studio in…

Avatar art, new markers, and May Sketchbook Tour 

Two avatar art portraits of Gaiaonline users. One my own, another a user from a forum.  So I like to color. I have been coloring some older artwork that I drew a few years ago and kept in a sketchbook. I drew them on computer paper so I couldn’t use my extensive set of watercolor…

Crochet Jumper Skirt

The crochet jumper skirt is completed!! This is my second super flared crochet jumper skirt with a tutu effect. My first is a my rabbit jumper skirt. I underestimated just how much yarn this project would consume. The skirt, especially towards the edges(multi-color blue), used  up 6 skeins of yarn(each skein is 364 yards). This…

Hachune Miku grows up?! 

*Le gasp* Such adorable is Hachune Miku. What if she had a manga face?! I have dabbled into using some new watercolor brushes. They hold water, which is great for travel. Hint, hint, you should get some if you enjoy Watercolor or inking and don’t already own  a closet full of them. Because everyone knows…

Lucoa fan art from Miss Koboyashi’s Dragon Maid 

I love this show. Kanna is my favorite of all of them. “Then why am I reading about Lucoa?” Because she’s my second favorite and drawing that “oppai” is fun. Lucoa is equally as fun to watch on the screen. If you haven’t already, I’d recommend this show if you enjoy light hearted comedy with…

Crochet Minty Outfit of the Day

  Her royal minty highness is here! She wants sushi! …She always wants sushi. This weekend was quite a good one, productivity wise. I completed the tutu suspender dress(I will publish photos later when I model it) made a new mint wig as seen above, and gave some much-needed attention to another dress I’m working…

Chizuru wants cheese? If mice looked moe….

In fantasy land, because mice are not this cute in real life. You’re baking a cheesecake and you leave your kitchen for a moment. When you return you find Chizuru here licking her fingers. There’s no evidence your pie was harmed. Do you give Chizuru cheese? I’m currently working on amping my chibi painting moe…

The Tama chan(Happy Fan art Friday)

Warning: Semi spoiler ahead after image itself.  Reference photo Fan art from series Magical Girl Raising Project.  How would Tama look when she grew up if Swim Swim didn’t massacre her after finding out her true identity? She’s be a voluptuous shy grown Tama, still digging holes somewhere and hopefully avoiding Swim Swim. The original…

Nemurin WatercolorFan Art

Fan Art Friday, y’all! Nemurin special! Heads up, minor spoilers of the anime Magical Girl Project Raising in the blog post after the picture. So earlier this year I watched the anime Magical Girl Raising Project. I loved it. That means ah-bviously I must make fan art. Okay, not really. I make fan art when I really…

Yuri on Ice Amigurumi Art Dolls 

A request from my cousin. I watched a few episodes of this anime and dropped it. It wasn’t my cup of tea. I’m not too big into sports anime. I watched it purely to learn a bit about the characters she requested. [huge_it_slider id=”1″] While these dolls are reserved, if you or someone you know…

MerGirl Watercolor art(and shop relaunch)

Can you tell who this is inspired by? Probably. Oh, I tried so hard to hide the fangirl. Anyways…lately, I’ve been busy with updating and re-opening myself to artistic income. I’ve made some changes since my last artistic entrepreneurship. There are three major changes. One, I’m not using Etsy as a shop platform. Two, I’m…

Mermaid Sailor Venus Watercolor 

Happy Tuesday! Mer-Minako  looks quite bubbly and happy~ I accidentally painted her hair too dark. She’s a dirty blonde instead of a sunshine yellow blonde. What genius idea to add light brown as a shadow color. Anyway, I’m pleased to announce that I will be re-opening my shop soon. I’ll be adding art prints for…

Crochet Gladiator Sandals

So on the world of Pinterest there’s a popular crochet project(I think, what even is popular?) that involves taking a pair of flip flops and crocheting something over them. Look it up. Do eeeiiitt.   👀 So I figured after looking at an image of some finished flip flops I’d be able to freehand a…

Mermaid Sailor Mercury Watercolor~

Bubbles, bubbles, lots of bubbles!! And Action! A lot of my recent sailor mermaid paintings are inspired by a swimsuit I own from Hot Topic. It’s the Sailor Moon one. In this installment, I tried painting hyper-realistic bubbles. I think I failed at it. However, I don’t think they ruin the picture. The picture isn’t…

Sailor Saturn Chibi Watercolor

    Dear mother of pearl! Oh hi there you. It dawned on me yesterday that I can’t find any of my larger point illustration pens in size .5 or .8. I can’t outline in 0.05 or less. So I thought, why not try outlining in the acrylic paint? Seems like something to try. Lo…

What happens when you cross Tomoe Mami with Hachune Miku? 

Did it need to happen? Yes, indeed it needed to happen. Why shouldn’t Hachune Miku experience being a magical girl? …because it’s a trap? Because Kyuubey is a liar and a plague to humanity? Because Hachune Miku was in the middle of studying and can’t save the world?!?!? Nonsense. Those are all excuses. This is what…

Crochet Harley Quinn Wig (How-To)

Oh hey! Last year I cosplayed as Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. This blog post is sharing the how to create a creative spin hair for a Harley Quinn cosplay– crochet the wig, similar to the cabbage patch wigs–but way cooler and dye the ends. An unworn, undyed wig. This is my Miku one. For…

Crochet Ariel Birthday Cosplay/Cosbound

So this is a story all about how my life got– oh wait. I decided to cosplay as Ariel on my 29th birthday. I am entirely convinced that I’m indeed a mermaid, well at least in swimming pools. Hurray for finding an exercise that is enjoyable that doesn’t feel like work. I had a few…

What happens when you cross Ibuki with Sheik?

I thought it seemed like an awesome crossover fanart idea. I’m pleased with the results. The theme song on the video does sound like theme music you’d hear as Link approaches some dungeon.

Crochet Gingerbread Cupcake Jumper~

Oh gingerbread houses! They look sweet, tasty, and full of pre-diabetic fun! Don’t eat a gingerbread mansion and your blood glucose may survive…until pocky joins the mix. Every sweet tooth for himself!! Maybe… it’d be best to avoid eating all of the gingerbread homes. What about wearing a gingerbread dress in the form of a Continue reading

Crochet Pikachu Hoodie 

Greetings! Here’s to my Crochet Pikachu Hoodie! There’s no pattern in particular for the hood, tail, or. However, there is a shrug video tutorial that I used as a base which is useful for creating the bodice. Video is for shrug here. After creating the shrug I added onto the base. I made the hood, ears,…

Crochet Rosalina Cosplay 

I just realized on March 19th 2017 that the story of my Rosalina cosplay isn’t on my blog. I know. What am I doing with my life? Please note this blog post  is written two years after its creation. It’s not new, but my blog is kind of new. So work dated as far back…
