Neko Creations available at CutesyKink
When Feeby from Neko Creations agreed to draw some commissions for my store I was absolutely thrilled. This is my second exclusive artwork I have had created and this time I am having some little cheeky chibis created in each style of clothing I stock with a anime style twist.
Bashing our heads together on Facebook in the early hours I am thrilled with the results. Feeby is an incredible artist and just lovely too
““I am a blue haired little kitty who spends 80% of my time pulling stories from my keyboard or sketchbook and the other 20% avidly stretching the bounds of normalcy in Northwestern Michigan.”
Well …..meet Alpaca Girl.
isn’t she a cute lolita chibi…. who just cannot control her excitement when confronted with a huge ice cream sundae ^_^
It is a must to check out more of Feebys work, it can be found in her store nekocreations.com and on Facebook
I look forward to working a lot more with Feeby over the coming months…its such a pleasure
Next up will be Steampunk Neko…..I think Feeby will like that idea ^_~
This and all the other artwork I have had commissioned is available in my store on tote bags and T shirts and soon to add a range of nail accessories too….. www.cutesykink.co.uk
Yesterday Saoirse Clohessy Photography came to CutesyKink for my first ever photo shoot >_< something I’ve never done before and a somewhat scary experience.
Saoirse is a keen Japan culture enthusiast as well as a fantastic photographer you can see her work on her website www.saoirseclohessy.com or on Facebook.
The day started out a bit bizarre with my first model Danni travelling all the way from Cornwall to model for me and her train just didn’t stop at the station, poor little thing was so tired when I finally tracked her down at a station in Portsmouth. Luckily the day didn’t fall apart from then on in, as that was an unexpected start that you could never plan for. Next to arrive was Megan another model who had traveled from Nottingham!!! With her lovely friend Aisha and lastly Saoirse. Step one of getting everyone here on time was complete. Weather was actually kind too O_O and looking out the window on a grey Sunday today – we were so lucky!!
None of us had ever met before but I hope we all got on just great, and it just goes shows how invaluable social media can be when a group of people come together after meeting on Twitter. And the actually produce something pretty amazing ^_^ I feel very chuffed of our achievements yesterday and I cannot wait to see the photos from just the little snippets I have seen they look truly amazing.
We started out with the oh so cute kawaii look….lots of giggles, and silly behavior. My naughty cats making guest appearances and stealing the cakes and balloons >_<. I would like to give a huge thank you to Sally Thornhill for driving all the way from Swindon with her cupcakes and biscuits especially made for the shoot. Have to say they looked fantastic
We then moved to the garden and rabbit balloons became a bit of a pain and with a change of scenery looked scary rather than cute lurking in the bushes and as the wind blew them away.
Next up was Steampunk fashion, and the amazing Aisha who just came as morale support couldn’t wait to get involved. And what a pro she turned out to be as well. The moment I saw her dressed up in the doorway with Megan it was WOW! Thank you so much for stepping in ❤
Time seemed to fly by and a look at the clock it was almost four a clock, break for a late lunch at my local pub time. Then it was back to get a few more scenes in before light and fatigue got the better of us all.
Hope you like the few behind the scene shots of the day AND would like to give a huge thank you to each and everyone of you involved as you made it such an amazing day. I can’t wait to see you all on my stand at the MCM in May ^_^
Hey all! First and foremost we want to give our thanks to CutesyKink for featuring us! We aim to
keep this introduction to us brief ^^
We are Maurice and Ashley, the co-founders of Cyten which is a gaming and anime online media/events company. We’ve known each other since our days at Sixth Form College where we found common ground in gaming and anime. We both have sciencey backgrounds and aren’t originally from the big smoke, i.e. London. Ashley is from Leeds in Northern England and Maurice is from Sweden in Northern Europe ^^. We co-founded Cyten in early 2012 after discussing fusing the passion and enjoyment we both have for gaming and anime into something we could share with others. Not only do we want to share our enjoyment of gaming and anime but we want to take it further in more ways than one (something which is a bit of a secret for now :)) as well as bring people together in a cool and fun filled atmosphere.
This in a nutshell is how Cyten came together after weeks and months of dreaming and planning. As for the name, we wanted something Japanese sounding or of Japanese origin. Whilst out chowing down on some food, we jotted down a long list of names, shortlisted it and Ashley suggested Cyten, which actually wasn’t on the long list >.< ! RushDown which is the name of our podcast show was something Maurice suggested which is a gaming term, generally meaning to overwhelm and overcome an opponent with a surprise fast attack.
Since we founded Cyten in April 2012 we’ve been laying the foundation of our company. You can’t run before you can walk ^^; and so we’ve been planning a lot of different things, meeting with different people and companies etc. It wasn’t easy to begin with and we suffered a few setbacks here and there which did knock our confidence a little bit but undoubtedly made us stronger. Looking back we’re quite glad we had those setbacks then rather than now or in the future and so we’ve learned a lot from our experiences. This year is a special one as we’re starting to roll things out and build on our foundation. We havequite a few things lined up and so far it’s been going well and we’ve received a positive and warm response both online and offline, as well as “met” some great individuals and companies online. Oneof which of course is Sally and CutesyKink ^^.
We’ll be attending a few conventions and Expos both in the UK and abroad where we’ll be reporting on the event as well as hoping to find new and exciting cosplayers, designers, fan artists etc to feature on our InstaFeatures or Spotlight page. Be sure to come and say hi if you’re attending any of the events!
With Cyten’s second birthday coming up we’re going to be running one or two competitions here and there so make sure to keep in the loop 😉
