Ask me anything   Buy my work!   I play video games!   

My name is Kali. I was born on March 2, 1991. I like crafts, cosplay and video games and I am a crochet-addict.

Ron Perlman as Bato (See, you can still have some white actors, especially if they’re cyborgs!)

Shin Koyamada as Togusa

James Hong as Chief Aramaki image

Any more ideas?

Ron Perlman as Bato is the best fancasting I’ve ever heard.

make it mandatory

Is James Hong allowed to play non-comedic roles?

Omg Ron Perlman as Bato would be amazing!

Last day of aac. 
We still have our ponies minus sweetie belle and applejack. If you want one, you can order one to be shipped to you. 
Also have X/Y starters for order and a froakie you can take home today! Deal: order all 3 starters for $35 together. 
We have one more hat left! Perfect for Halloween with black and orange stripes with bow! Plenty of warm scarves for the changing season. This weekend was beautiful but the cold will make a comeback so be prepared with a warm scarf! 
All items are made by hand and with care.
located at the back of the dealers room across from c’lay la vie

A year ago. Heading back there today! A few items return but a lot more has been added like pumpkaboo and groots and goodra! Taking requests and orders on site. If you’re going to another anime con this weekend stop by and pick up something cute! I’ll be in the second row from the room entrance I think 3rd table from the autographs table.

I’m not sure if I got no work done today or a lot of work done today.

I didn’t crochet at all after 1pm. Instead I helped my mom pick vegetables and fail at an attempt to give the rest of the garden to the Alpacas and then we cleaned the “lobby” in the chicken coop by taking out all of dad’s stuff and making room on the fridge shelf in there for food and cleaning stuff…. 

All I know is I hurt. t-t

#AAC  #artist alley  #what am i doing 
Anonymous asked: I would like to make an important addition to those going to Another Anime Convention, he is going to be having a table in the artist's alley that he's sharing with his disabled friend, likely another accessory of his for him to collect so he can give himself the right to say things he has no business saying. It's likely he'll be Hinata from Danganronpa for this, because the friend cosplays Komaeda, but that's not for complete certain.


Answer:

torikabori:

(In reference to this post.)

Good to know. AAC is a small con where he knows people, too, so everyone should be extra-careful!

As a side note, everyone please be kind to the artist friend— as far as we know they’re not complicit in his shit. I hope he doesn’t hurt their con experience too much.

@_@ I googled him because his table is next to mine in the Artist Alley and his link is broken. Now I’m forcing my boyfriend to sit next to him, even though a very talented artist is on the other side and I know he’d like to talk to them about art.

Anonymous asked: i crochet and ino for a fact that is not worth $35 even if you used 5.5m hook but its obvious you use a really big one. it probably barley takes a hour to make and you use a very simple stitch and cheap yarn. and yes shipping is expensive but you are still way over pricing.


Answer:

stealthcrispies:

crochetmelovely:

Okay honey listen, I’m not getting into some war with you over this. In all honesty, I’ve sold a few cowls. So I know how much I make off of them and I don’t make that much profit. I should actually be charging more. But I don’t want to. Why? Because I care about how much others would be spending. I like selling, but I am also concerned with my buyer’s happiness.

Also, not everyone crochets at the same speed. So you may take an hour to make a cowl, but I might not.

That’s great that you have an opinion and feel the need to share it with me on my own product. But I think I’m doing okay. Thanks.

This anon is a good example of how NOT to talk to a crafter or artist about our work whether its crochet or something else.
This ‘it probably only takes you an hour’ is a big big insult when people try very hard to make thing.

Price covers a lot of things! if your not charging for materials or time your charging for skills, it could take years for a person to get skilled in something which is worth the price for good craftsmanship!

Crochetmelovely is right to, she should be charging more for a well made hand made product. But she has her sellers rights to charge as much as she wants to for her work, after all is is her work, and if shes happy with it, and her current buyer circle are happy, then thats all up to her.

Its also people like this anon that often drive sales prices down with a lot of other people I’ve seen on the web (by bullying them so they feel their work is worthless), but not only that the market at the moment is flooded with crochet (and other) things people are making and selling and good buyers sometimes have favorite makers they tend to be loyal to etc.

Now to be honest I think people who complain like this are actually usually people who want to buy a thing, but don’t have the money for it, so they take out their frustrations on the seller and make things up like ‘i could do it my self ’ (In that case why don’t you go do that and stop bothering us!) and they use the ‘you charge to much’ card, which is total bullshit and very childish behavior.

^This

There have been people who passed my tables at TOWN events who have made comments like “That’s way too overpriced” or “I like it but I don’t like it THAT much.” (This second comment was made about a $5 pokeball keychain) right in front of me.

It really upsets me when people devalue my work.
