Hi! What type of markers do you use and where do you get them (for cheap ) ? And also, what ype of paper/program do you use to draw ? Thank you so much !
Hi, I use Copic Markers. I have a local art store that sells them for a reasonable price. So I buy them there. Whenever Copic is at a convention, its also a good idea to stock up then. What I usually do, I buy new colors at my local art store, and when the convention comes, if I use the color often, I would buy the refill ink. The refillable ink is almost the price of a marker but will last for a looooong time. Its worth the investment.
When I started to collect markers, I was very particular on the colors I wanted. They are pricey, so I wanted to make sure the few I got I can use and blend and mix color. Try sticking to a color palette you use often and then build from that. I don’t buy 100 at a time, I buy maybe one or 2. I also keep a log of all my colors on a color chart, which helps a lot when shopping for more markers and knowing what the color looks like on that paper.
As for the Paper, I prefer bristol board, but it is a bit more on the expensive side. However I love the thickness of the paper, and how well the ink blends. I also have a ton of marker paper and copic paper from when I was in school but I seldom use it now. However it is very useful and good to use with copics. Currently, my friend gave me a stack of super thick multipupose paper/cardstock and I’ve been using that for almost everything.
Hi! Sorry to bug you, but I'm doing an informative speech on Lolita for class and was wondering if I might use your anatomy of lolita illustration in the power-point? I would of course credit you. The powerpoint would be shown to my class mates, so I want to make sure you would comfortable with that as well. If you don't want to I totally understand, it's no problem! Thanks! :)
Feel free to use my diagram for your informative speech. I wish I had a diagram when I made my informative speech on lolita. Best of luck! :)
I’m part of a bunch of lolita communities! I love them all! They are all very similar and very unique in their own ways. I’d love to join even more but for now let me share with you the ones I’m currently active in <3
Los Angeles. This community is huge and always…
I’m going to add the general So-Cal community in here and the Beach Cities.
Hi there are you going to pmx this year would loce to see you!
I’m planning on it. However its not a sure thing. I’m going to the Perfume concert the same Sunday of PMX. I’m kind of thinking of camping it to get to the front… But, I do want to see what Innocent World is bringing to the con :3
Hi! I'm Mariel, the girl you met at the Under The Sea meet asking about the pin! Hopefully I wasn't too annoying! Anyways, would I be able to commission one from you or do you have in mind of making any? Let me know when you can! :)
Oh right I remember! You were not annoying at all. I definitely would like to make some when I can. They are quite an investment to make so I would have to save up sometime to make them. I will definitely post about it and let you know when I have made some. They might be a bit different than the one I have, but will definitely let you know :3
How did you get the job at fairytail? Is there any openings in the future?
I’ve actually known the owner for a while prior to her opening the shop. She was an active lolita doing a loooot of things, and had her own brand that she would promote at cons. I also live pretty close to the area, and my full time job is near by so I’m able to visit her right after work.
Generally most girls work as a volunteer or an intern, that’s the best way to start. I doooon’t know if she is looking for someone at the moment, but generally Fairytale will post when we are looking for interns or volunteers on their FB page. So be sure to follow them to be up to date with the updates :)
