~*Chibi Act Two: Ami-Chan*~ Sailor Moon Desserts Replica Series

Hi everyone! ~ヾ(^∇^) Welcome back to DecoJenn’s Cafe :3

Sorry for the kind of long hiatus. Life has been a little crazy. between switching jobs, and revamping the Etsy store, I’ve been pretty preoccupied lately. Yesterday though, I finally sat down, conquered my fears, and tackled the next in the Sailor Moon Dessert Series. Honestly, I was very intimidated by this project, it was something I have never really tried with clay, but I must say I am happy with how it turned out! 🙂

Chibi Act Two – Ami-Chan (Sailor Mercury) – Creme de Menthe Ice Cream

Hey look, I learned how to use my camera, at long last!!!

Hey look, I learned how to use my camera, at long last!!!  The cup, ice cream, curly cues, shiny balls, and plate were very meticulously made out of polymer clay.

Katharina’s original dessert is completely edible, aside from the plate. That’s amazing! I totes want a chocolate cup, don’t you?  :p

What is this, dessert for ants!?

Let. Me. Tell. You. About. Those. Curly Cues. >_<”’ I must have redone them over 7 times, and on the last try, I got lucky they came out as good as they did. Actually, the curly cues got lucky as well, since their predecessors ended up angrily squished and thrown into the trash in a fit of frustrated rage. The shiny balls were really fun to make. I used an artificial sugar to make them look like the original-ish. (I do not know what this “artificial sugar actually is, though I have a sinking suspicion that it is sand. >_> If anyone knows, please comment below ^_^) 

You can find Katharina’s hilarious original post and recipe in the link below. 🙂

Thanks for checking out this post! Take it easy, my friends!

** Introducing Sailor Moon Dessert Replica Miniatures ** or … ~**Chibi Act One – Usagi**~

Hello ~ヾ(^∇^) Welcome to DecoJenn’s cafe! *^_^*

Today I have some exciting news! Let me give a little background to better explain it.

One day while browsing the Reddit, I saw some most excellent home-made and completely original Sailor Moon desserts. Immediately I thought how awesome it would be to make little miniature versions of them, so I contacted my new friend Katharina at A Pretty Cake Machine and she gave me the green light on recreating her desserts from clay!

This is the first in the series, with the rest to follow as time goes on. Since these are smaller versions, each new sweets replica will be titled a “Chibi” act, as chibi is Japanese for “small or little” (for those of my readers who are not Japanese lingo savvy :P)

Now on with the show!

Chibi Act One – Usagi (Sailor Moon) – Creampuff Cake

Please ignore the TV lookin lines! I took the images in this post with my mobile phone and not the fancy camera, so they are a bit wonky.

Mini version with the original in the background

The cake is sitting on a quarter for scale… It is tiny! Also I promise there will be better pictures next time >.<

The real Creampuff Cake can be found at the link below. I suggest everyone check it out and see how this decadent treat is made. 🙂

❅☃ Post Holiday Update :D ☃❅

(‘-‘*)オヒサ♪ Long time, no see.

We had some very busy holidays around here in Deco-Kitty central.(´~`)

In the past couple months, I have made ~65 batches of chili (Jk, it’s prolly closer to 8, but it feeeeels like more), been on multiple road trips, gone through 2 fits of a bad cold, met multiple members of my boyfriend’s family (*≧▽≦)オハツでっす♪, planted herbs for cooking with, and began the Spring cleaning. Phew!

Anyways, enough rambling, on with the show!

The first piece is a character from Monster High, Abbey Bominable, the daughter of the Yeti. Unbeknownst to most of my friends, I really like the Abominable Snowman, Jack Frost, the Snow Queen, and other characters that deal with coldness/ice/snow, though I am not sure why since I can’t stand cold weather. xD So, given that fun fact, I decided to craft this character first for my upcoming Monster High series, because she’s my favorite character so far.

Yay first image which I tried to add a little extra flair to the foreground :) I am trying to make my pictures look better.

Of course I couldn’t stay away from making Sailor Moon stuff for long, right?

This is Sailor ChibiMoon's Crystal Carillon. I carefully crafted it so that the bells rings clearly ^_^

The sword on the left is called Kaleidomoon Scope (not sure why). I've really liked that weapon and always wanted a miniature toy version of it, so I got to make my own ^_^ On the left is Sailor Venus' transformation wand.

I made two bells and two Chibimoon wands so I can keep one and give the other to a friend. She also ordered the Sailor Venus wand and a few other things. (’-’*) フフ Big shout out to Cam-O-Chan for the encouragement and support!!!

When I showed my boyfriend the Sailor Moon sword, he reminded me that he had requested an Adventure Time sword, but that was right around when I first started crafting with clay, and I had forgotten since then |・ω・`)コッショリ So I figured after I made me a sword, I would make him a sword, which means we both got swords! Yay! Sword fight!

This is Fin with his Demon Blood Sword. Feels kinda weird typing that amidst all this pink and glitter on the blog :p

The next pictures were taken with the cell phone, so I apologize for the quality. They were gifted as Christmas presents or had to be delivered quickly before I decided to take on the camera again.

These were given to my BF's twin sisters. I think they came out really adorable

The reason I made this is because the BF's grandma crafted him a quilt for Christmas. It was even featured in a quilt show! Anyways, since she was giving the quilt to him, I wanted to try and replicate the pattern on clay for her :) She loves Mickey Mouse so I combined the two for this piece.

The following two below are a big Sailor Moon haul that left home very quickly.

It's all about the bow. That's my favorite piece in this bunch.

And lastly, in honor of the Chinese/Lunar New Year, we have some lucky red envelopes that will be given to my friends when I see them 😀

It was a lot of fun painting the pictures on these. In fact, so much fun that I had contemplated making another batch!

✯✈ Sailor Evan Art!! ✈☃

A few weeks ago, one of my favorite Youtubers requested that people draw him as a Sailor Moon character and he will send gifts in trade. Well, since I was too lazy to draw (go figure), I made him out of clay. Here is the video announcing the trade offer:

ヘ(^_^ヘ)(ノ^_^)ノ

Moving on, here are the images.

This is how he began. Look, there's even a neck hehe.  He reminds me of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.  :p

He got bored and decided to hit up the Corner Cafe' before heading out to his new home.  Too bad his guest is keeping him waiting! That's just like her isn't it!

Whilst waiting for the weather to be a little less frosty (ie not mailing it out for a couple days), Evan said in another video that he really likes the tambourine that the characters use, my immediate thought was: Challenge Accepted.

I didn't realize the image was so blurry when I took this picture, so my apologies for that.  This is Sailor Jupiter's tambourine and I think it came out pretty good for a first try! :D

Thanks everyone for checking out this post, and thanks Evan for the trade. I’m looking forward to getting my package in the mail next.

☪ ☪ Sailor Moon Charms and No Face ☪ ☪

Hello, friends!

This week, I decided to make some Sailor Moon charms for myself, since the others ones I made went up for sale.

Crisis Locket necklace charms

...and earrings :)  Next time I am going to make another true-to-size brooch, but I'm keeping that one :p

Here is the original version from the cartoon:

For the “gems” in the following, I used real stones to give them a more real life feeling. Hey, who can say gemstones aren’t cool, too!?

I call this one the "star brooch". The one one the left is a chunkier version and the right more flat. They are necklace charms.

These tiny ones are going to be used for decoden since they didn't turn out 100% good.

Pretty much true to size, this brooch is awesommmmee!

Last but not least we have an army of No Faces. Painting them was quite tricky so I made a few to get practice. While they aren’t perfect, I think they will do for now. There are still 2 literal no faced No Faces in the “studio”, so they will be my chance to redeem myself :p

welp, creepy lil guys on a rainbow background isn't weird at all.... er.... :/

I finally made people! *dances around all happy like*.  The following are “chibis” that I mention in the most recent blog update:

After I made the previous two, I wanted to try making Sailor Moon so so so bad, that I rushed through it and made a few mistakes, namely the collar. Personally I don't think it's that great, but my friends have said it's blog worthy so here she is!

Alright moving on, here is the custom job:

This little guy is named Laser and he is the mascot for my friend's company. Being a hedgehog n' all, he has a ton of little tiny spikes that were quite the feat to make.

▲◄ Video Game Characters ►▼

Until recently, I have focused on cakes, sweets and decoden, so branching off into the video game realm has been a new and exciting challenge for me. I think my little guys turned out pretty well. ^_^ But I wanna know what you think too 😉

These are Shy Guys from Super Mario Brothers. The original shy guy is pretty cute, but these are just plain creepy in my opinion. Their creepiness makes them cool, though.
