The Werebear Donut

There is a new addition to the Dark Donut Series!

I began by making a Bear Donut. Once she was complete, the Werewolf  Donut bit her and she turned instantly into a Werebear Donut!!! Now she will carry the curse of the Werebear forever...

Hiii! I'm awake at 7am!
Ooh!! Why am I awake at 7am??!!

  A very happy Werewolf Donut with his new companion.

TA DAaaa!!!

 It's always a relief once these furry creatures are finished. It is crazy how much mess is made from the fur!!! I have to hoover about a million times!

Me with my Werebear and Werewolf Donuts

Even though these are a pain to make, I have to say that these fluffy donuts do make me smile. Let there be many more fluffy donuts to come! :)

Werewolf Donut

My new favourite donut

A new addition to the Dark Donut Series! The Werewolf Donut!

This Donut was placed under a curse. He still maintains some physical traits of a donut but posses super-donut strength and senses beyond those of wolves and donuts. They are extremely rare and love nothing more than cuddles and a scratch behind the ears. But beware of him during a full moon!!!! :)

Vampire, Werewolf and Devil Donuts

The fur is really lovely and soft but when this fabric is cut there are a million hairs EVERYWHERE!!! Arrrgghhh! It really is horrible!!! I must have hoovered a million times just to control the hair mess from cutting. And there was a lot of cutting!

 I was undecided about the colour of the ears, wondered if they should be pink, white or grey. Francesco suggested to make them green to match with the eyes. I was worried the green ears would look strange. After some doubting, I decided that green might be a good choice after all and it was! Good call Francesco! :)

Winter Wonderland!

I had a meeting with the Events Manager of Coutts Bank and I will be taking part in their annual Winter Wonderland Market 1st of Dec!  VERY EXCITING!!!!

I have been preparing as many things as I can like crazy! I am aiming to take at least 100 Suki's with me. Last week I was working on flowers and misfits, and that was just cutting them out!

My little sister Naomi started her 10 months internship last week.She is studying Product Design.

Now I have only 3 weeks left till the market!!!  And I am also juggling orders! Eeeeeeeeeek!!! 


Halloween at Torture Gardens

I am never leaving Halloween shopping to the last minute again! On Friday the queues for the Halloween stores were ridiculous! It was so stressy inside the shop I made panic purchases and I still did not find anything for myself! In the end I went to fabric store minutes before closing and got some stretchy black PVC.

It was perfect, I made a top for Francesco and a dress for me.

I went as a Voodoo Witch with my own voodoo doll. :)

The only reason we knew about this event was because my friend Natsumi Scarlet was performing that night. Dressing up and makeup took much longer than we expected and we arrived to the club 20 minutes before Natsumi's act. Unfortunately no body in the club knew where any of the rooms were - the map was unreadable! We were rushing all over the place, upstairs, downstairs following wrong directions. In the end we were sent to the wrong room and watched the wrong performance! As soon as I realised the person we were watching was not Claire, we ran around again looking for the aorrect place. We finally found Claire! We saw the last 5 seconds of her act, doing the splits! 

Torture Gardens Halloween Ball was amazing! It was an incredible experience, it was the first Fetish Club we had been too. The variety of costumes and lack of was just fantastic to see, and the atmosphere of the entire night was just amazing! It was the most fun Halloween we ever had! This article sums it up very well!

Despite all the costume stress, our costumes turned out very well and this definitely is a place were you can be creative if you like making costumes :)

First Giveaway

Suki Stickers printed with The quality of the stickers are great!

The number of fans of my SukiSuki facebook page was at 246 so I decided I would give a page of stickers away when I reached 250. It was really fun doing a giveaway,  The draw was done using a random number generator then announced the winner on facebook. She contacted me immediately. I have not posted them to her yet,  I am waiting for my new business cards to arrive and they are taking ages!

When I reach 500 fans I will do another draw. I still have to decide what the giveaway will be....

First Etsy Sale!

My first international sale on my new Etsy shop

I finally put up two items on my Etsy page, the Vampire and Devil donut and within a few hours I had sold the Vampire Donut! I was absolutely thrilled! I made a new Vampire donut and shipped it off to the USA. He got there safe and sound and his new owner says she loves him. :)

Let's hope there will be more sales to come! :)

Squakkio, the Baby Sasquatch

Oh my! My last blog post was in mid September! So much has happened since then!

I decided to finally make something with the lovely white faux fur I bought in Derby when I met up with Vanessa.

I started with some sketches and made my first baby Sasquatch.

The fur was a nightmare to cut! There were tons of hairs everywhere, every time i cut the fabric! I went to the balcony to cut. It was a really sunny and I was also getting warm from all the hard work, and the fur was sticking to my sweaty forearms. There were white hairs also allover my clothes and the best part was then i got hairs got into my eyes and onto my contact lenses!  It was a furry nightmare!!!!

Sightseeing in London
Enjoying the last part of Summer

I let Francesco choose a name for the the baby Sasquatch and he chose Squakkio. :)
