Etsy Crush of the Week Junior: Pop & Moo, FrillyMonster and The Albino Hare

So, I was trying to figure out how to give the illustrator and tattoo artist,  Imani,  something extra as thanks for tattooing the beautiful Neil Gaiman Sandman quote on me. But I didn’t really have to look for too long, because a few minutes hanging out in Etsy I found these kawaii accessories perfect for my favorite lolita! Huge shout-out to the shops featured for being awesome!

Etsy Crush of the Week: Word To Your Unicorn

word to your unicornI met Leslie of Word to Your Unicorn like everyone else meets most people nowadays, on the internet. We instantly  became blogging buddies and then turned into internet friends (Facebook makes everything official). In October our geek girl worlds collided when I met her IRL at NYCC! Other than being her friend I’m a big fan of her blog, designs and overall kawaiiness. I was thrilled to hear that she opened an Etsy shop featuring stickers and buttons that are, to quote one of her items, “Whimsical as f*ck”! Find out more about Lelsie and her wonderful world of unicorns, cupcakes and geekery.

Can you tell us a little about yourself? 

leslieLeslie: I’m a geek girl, kawaii fanatic, & costumed fancy pants living in Northeastern PA with a blogging obsession. I do design & marketing by day and blogging (darlingstewie.com) & web design by night. I also design super kawaii whimsical geeky such as stickers, pins, & other fun print items at my etsy store, Word to your unicorn. I apparently do too much.

How long have you been designing? 

Leslie: I started doing web design geocities style at the age of 13. This, fueled by a fire of Mountain Dew and Pokemon, led me to become this funky geek girl, cosplayer, and asian adorable kawaii mish mash that I am.

What made you decide to start your blog Darling Stewie, and what is it about?

Leslie: I was obsessed with the internet but I felt like… for all the time I was spending on it – I had nothing. I thought a blog could be a showcase of the things I create (web sites, adorable stickers, cute outfits, costumes) and the things I find (kawaii jewelry, geeky things, memes, cartoons, silliness) but showcased in a cool professionally silly way. I also do freelance web/graphic design so I was hoping to showcase my portfolio to get some more business.

What’s Word To Your Unicorn’s origin story?

Leslie: I felt like I could make cool things people might want to buy … so I started designing stickers. Inspired by the adorable and the geeky, I found myself leaning towards sugary sweet designs like cupcakes, mixed with geeky Doctor Who and Ninja Turtles nonsense. I plan to make a lot more designs and spawn them into notecards, prints, maybe even tshirts or something. I’m trying to see what the demand is and go from there.

Do you have any plans for future designs? Doctor Who Stationery Set - 4 Notecards

Leslie: I plan to design a Powerpuff Girls / cat mash up and probably some Adventure Time moustaches.

What are you a fangirl for?

Leslie: Hardcore fangirl for Harry Potter, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Sailor Moon, Star Wars, anything Tim Burton, Bobs Burgers and anything Loren Bouchard.

The fourth doctor had the scarf, the eleventh doctor has the bow tie. What would your signature clothing item be if you were the twelfth doctor?

Leslie: A giant pink bow on the top of my head. God I hope the twelth doctor is a woman. How epic would that be??

Which fictional character is your fashion icon?

Leslie: I love Luna Lovegood’s funky thrift store style. I rock River Tam on occasion… I can be seen in a flowered dress and combat boots. Oh and sometimes a mix between Lydia from Beetlejuice’s gothy style and Strawberry Shortcake fluffy cute babydoll dresses. Random, ain’t it?

If you were on a deserted island what video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring?

Animal Crossing, Harry Potter, Amelie and LOST for irony’s sake.

Where do you live on the internet?

Tattoo Tuesday- Hello Kitty

 

 

 

Hello Zelda & Link Kitty

I loved Hello Kitty since my elementary school days in Hawaii.  I used to fiend to go to the Sanrio store in the mall and rack up on all kinds of useless/necessary stationary, stickers and such.  I also used to beg my parents to get me a Sanrio backpack every year even though it would break half-way through the school year… I swear the weight of some of my textbooks should have been illegal!  Nostalgia is sucking me in, let me get off memory lane before I can’t find my way back.

Thanks to @robocake33 on Twitter for suggesting this weeks Tattoo Tuesday theme! So basically there’s a gazillion Hello Kitty tattoos out there so I’ve tried my best to narrow it down (even though it doesn’t seem like it) ENJOY! :3
