For some reason people seem to think I don’t keep any of the Zombuki for myself, I guess they’re just forgetting my darling little Galupe* entirely. Despite this I decided a few months ago that Hanami needed a little sister quite badly, and so I made Miss Ume, full name Ume Boshi Dust …
I just finished her this morning, her glue is drying as we speak. So exciting! What is Ume anyway? Wikipedia to the rescue! Ume has the same pink hair as the streak in Hanami’s, made by lovehaze quite a long time ago, and Shu Uemura real feather eyelashes that I couldn’t possibly love more.
Sorry the photos are so yellow, they were taken in my studio last night, and my desk lamp makes everything look yellow. I’ll be taking a real shoot with her soon but I was way too excited about her not to post something.
Finally an announcement: I am going into semi-retirement. This means that I’m not sure when I’ll do pre-orders again this year, if at all. I’m going to keep making Zombuki, but because of work and school I never seem to find time to make my girls, like Ume. I have a lot of ideas I need to get out of my head and then we’ll see what happens … not that anything will change for most of you, but still worth announcing for some.
* Galupe does technically belong to my partner, but she lives with me
