WARNING: This Blog Post Contains Selfies
UPDATE 2/4/23: For real, gonna do more posts like this again this year! 2023! Yeah!
I did a blog post last week about Handmadeology's Shop Unique. Shop Etsy For the Holidays promotion and I mentioned a handful of my favorite Etsy shops that everyone should check out. I also made a couple of purchases for myself because I'm such a great salesperson that I found myself compelled to buy some shit after writing about it.
They go great with cat apparel as well as nautical headgear. He's also got some awesome prop/cosplay stuff for sale here.
Then I also got a custom-made, hand-embroidered Sailor Saturn merit badge from Illumine Artisan Works. It is hella cute and beautifully crafted. When I feel like sewing, I'll get around to attaching it to my good ol' backpack.
On the topic of the Sailor Scout of Destruction...My favorite Sailor Scout has always been Pluto actually, but Saturn has a special place in my heart. I believe I mentioned it in passing in some other post, but I do have some vague plans to cosplay Saturn for Dragon*Con 2015. Speaking of which...as soon as I get seriously started on that business you can expect lots of cosplay WIP posts.
If you're still in need of doing some holiday shopping then you should obviously poke around those two shops. Also check out:
