</b>CONTEST CLOSED! Thank you so much to everyone who entered! It's going to be hard to choose the top three winners, but once I've made the decision, I will make an announcement. Thanks again! ♥

---

My real birthday is on the 19th, but the deadline has been extended to the 21st!

My birthday is coming up and I figured that it is the perfect opportunity to host my first-ever contest! ♥

Details and Deadline



The theme for this contest is: Draw my OCs hosting a party! This can include things like shopping, decorating, trying on party dresses, etc.

  • Entry can include one to all of my OCs.
  • Unless our characters are friends, I'd prefer your entry include only my characters.
  • Two entries per person, but you can only win once.
  • No bases.


Deadline: May 19th May 21st at 11:59 PM PST. The deadline has been extended! I realize that many people need a little bit more time for their entries, and besides, I won't actually have time to be online on the 19th, 20th, or 21st anyway. :giggle: So basically, all entries must be submitted by the time I get home from work on Wednesday! (Which is actually the 22nd, but don't wait until the last minute!)

Character References



You can't draw my characters if you don't know anything about them! :la: Feel free to ask for clarification if anything is unclear.

Kiana



The fairy-kei unicorn girl.

Kiana's Reference Sheet by Cupcake-Kitty-chan

Personality: She's 15 years old and secretly wants to be a magical girl. She's a bit shy and doesn't particularly like attention, but she likes working with people one-on-one and spending time with a group of close friends.

Colors: purple, blue, and pink.

Candie



The sweet lolita sweetheart.

OC redone: Candie [OUTDATED] by Cupcake-Kitty-chan AT - Candie by xPiikaTan

Personality: She's ten years old, an only child, and helps her parents run their candy shop. She's very determined and hates not being taken seriously.

Colors: Pink and white. (Her eyes are blue, by the way.)

Mizu



The sparkly, colorful mermaid.

Meet Mizu and Lumia! by Cupcake-Kitty-chan

Personality: She has an honest heart and is quite outspoken. She collects pearls and starfish and is never far from her dolphin friend, Lumia.

Colors: Teal, purple, pink.

Summer



The red-headed nature lover.

Meet Summer! by Cupcake-Kitty-chan

Personality: 13 years old, Summer is pretty exuberant and loves spending time with her friends. She absolutely loves nature (all plants and animals), swimming, and camping.

Colors: Orange, green, pink.

Note: I was going to include the option to draw two unreleased OCs, but I don't think I will get them done in time. ^^; They'll be ready for my next contest, though!

Tips and F.A.Q.



Just a few hints on things I like/dislike, in case you want to use them, as well as frequently asked (or anticipated) questions.

Likes:
  • Pastels
  • Fluffy desserts
  • Sweet Lolita
  • Cute/Pretty anything
  • Stuffed animals
  • Kittens, puppies, bunnies, etc., etc., etc.


Dislikes:
  • Red (pink is fine)
  • Black
  • Sexual content (most of my characters are minors anyway)
  • Creepy stuff (blood/gore)


F.A.Q.

1. Can I change their outfits/hairstyles?
Ehh....
For Summer, absolutely! She always has at least one braid in her hair, doesn't like wearing anything stuffy (isn't too much of a dress person), wears green and pink, and likes buttons.

For Mizu, she'd maybe like to try an updo, but everything else must be pretty much the same.

For Candie, she'd love to wear a party dress, but please don't change her hair.

For Kiana, only change her outfit or hair if you're really brave and confident in your abilities. :3 (But don't forget her horn!)


2. Can I draw my OC, too?
As I said above, unless our OCs are already friends, I'd rather you didn't.


3. Does Mizu come to the water's surface and let people see her?
Yes, though only to a few people. She's a little bit cautious. On a related note, you can't draw her as a human, sorry. :[ But she can relax in a pool in someone's backyard!

So, the fun stuff!

Well, Jesse gave me a birthday present early. I was completely shocked when he showed me and couldn't stop laughing and smiling! Why is that? Here's what it was:


A FOUR-FOOT-TALL SOFT PUPPY STUFFED ANIMAL

:la: :la: :la:

Jesse had me squat a little bit in the picture and of course the dog is on a chair, but YES, HE'S HUGE! :D I adore him. I haven't picked a name yet because nothing's really sounded right (please no suggestions ^^), but I hope I can decide on something soon so that he doesn't remain forever nameless!

I also got another birthday gift early, this time from Holly! (Because I won't see her again until Monday.) Wrapped in skull-print tissue paper (as I would expect from Holly), I got...


1000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies, & Cakes!

I started looking at it right away, right there in the office at work, and was immediately squealing over all of the pretty pictures inside. *u* There aren't instructions, but the index tells you what materials they used (marzipan, fresh flowers, fondant, etc.) and I already know the techniques used in theory if not in practice. It was quite fun, sitting in the office with three to four of my coworkers, sharing my excitement with them and discussing how they designed each dessert. :love: One of my coworkers was a baker previously, so it was especially enjoyable talking to him about it.

I also got called "moe" for the first time ever. IRL. Haha. I don't think that he understands the concept because he explained it as 'the Japanese concept of someone overreacting to cute things', but I told him that I was flattered and took it as a compliment. ^^ (When he was like 'It's not really a compliment,' I said that I know who I am and what I like and am fine with being called "moe".)

And then today, there was a parade on the main street that my house branches off of! I didn't take any pictures because my phone's camera quality is so bad (as you can see above) and if I'd tried to capture moving targets, the result would have been nothing but a smear. It was called the "Parade of Bands," which was a little bit odd because there was PLENTY more than bands, such as business who had helped sponsor it and such. There was much tossing of candy to the viewers, free samples given out (I got a sandwich), business cards, flyers, and one group threw tennis balls! (I LOVE TENNIS and have been wanting to play with Jesse for years now, but I only have one racquet!) A couple groups threw out snack-sized bags of chips as well, but of course there were a ton of young children around me and I would have felt a bit of a jerk rushing over and snatching the chips from them as their hands were just inches away!

I watched it with my dad, which was a nice bonding experience and a ton more fun that going by myself. :) I think that my favorite part was near the end, when a group advertising a new pizza place was driving/walking by. One of the guys ran over to Dad and, as he gasped for air, said, "You look like a guy who could use a free slice of pizza!" and gave him a coupon. Then, "Your long beard tells me that you love beer, am I right?" Of course. Dad loves beer more than almost anything else. The guy then proceeded to tell Dad about all the beers that they have on tap. x3 I commend this young man! He did an excellent job, haha.

The D&D game I'm a part of was cancelled for tonight as our DM is sick, and I'd been looking forward to going to the farmers market with them in the morning, but I don't think that anyone will end up going. Sad. :/ But, Jesse and I will still go and have a grand old time (if not as much fun as we would have had with more people).

I've also already received some birthday gifts from sweethearts here on dA. ♥

I feel like a little kid! I'm so excited for my birthday. :giggle: I've had so much fun already! ♥ AND THEN TOMORROW. BIRTHDAY BARBECUE AT HOME! With the family, which is a little bit uncomfortable dealing with them (although I love them). But still. I won't be alone! ^^

Posted May 22

After several hours of thought, I have decided on the winners of my birthday contest! I really, truly appreciate everyone's participation — I'm amazed that I received 22 total entries! — and making the final decision was very difficult,  but please know that even if you didn't place, you are a worthwhile artist and deserve a virtual hug. :hug:

I judged entries based on three criteria:
1. Relevance to the theme ("Draw my OCs hosting a party!")
2. Accuracy of character(s), within the constraints described, and accuracy to my likes/dislikes
3. Overall eye appeal and 'fun'-ness

And now, without further ado, I will announce the contest winners, starting with...

Contest entry: Cupcake-Kitty-chan by RibbonDrop
By RibbonDrop
This entry is so adorable. I love how chibi Candie is and how she's hugging a cake that's half her size. The frosting bag hinting that she decorated it herself is a nice touch, because I've indicated once that Candie does know how to bake.

Prize:
50 points from Cupcake-Kitty-chan

:star: Third Place :star:
:thumb372576916:
By Suzu-chiii
What catches my eye most about this entry is that it's full of colorful pastels and contains all of my characters together. I love how they are all sitting in the fluffy frosting atop a huge cake (with the adventurous Summer atop the decoration) and how my pretties are wishing a happy birthday to me specifically.

Prizes:
50 points from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
50 points from snowtaro
10 points from VivaFariy
One sitting icon from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
Two-week profile feature from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
One icon from Mimiushka
One sketch chibi from kawaiiitails
One sketch thigh-up from Miso-tai

:star: Second Place :star:
[CE] Join our party by Purichie
By Purichie
Chie's art style and anatomy are perfect, Summer and Kiana are completely accurate, and it contains the perfect colors. Their expressions and body language are both so sweet, and I see that Chie included a stuffed animal and cute dessert, which I did confess to being things that I like. What really makes this entry is the confetti that's fallen from the ceiling and landed on their heads. The two look like close friends; I wish I could join them.

Prizes:
100 points from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
10 points from VivaFariy
One chibi from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
One sitting icon from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
Two-week profile feature from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
One custom adopt from sexygingerbear
One custom adopt from Liliire
One icon from dororoandkururu
One halfbody traditional drawing from Kimisuu
One full-colored chibi from kawaiiitails
One thigh-up from Miso-tai
One custom head ID from Miso-tai

Its Party Time by SprinkleBunny
By SprinkleBunny
Sprinkles hit me right in the sweet spots with this entry with overall cuteness and character accuracy! Summer's in the front wishing me a happy birthday, with a bandage over her knee (her knees are always red and a bit injured from being so active); Candie's very pleased to be helping (she looks so cute with a spoon as tall as she is, and she's good at decorating cakes); and Kiana is in the back, a bit shocked like 'Eep! Why are you taking a picture of me?!' The three of them working together to make a huge, delicious birthday cake is perfect, and the proportions really make it creative. The cake looks quite delicious with its multiple layers, chocolate filling, and strawberry topping with sprinkles and real strawberries; I wish I could eat it!

Prizes:
200 points from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
One chibi from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
One sitting icon from Cupcake-Kitty-chan
One 'cute' character design OR one chibi OR one sitting icon from Cupcake-Kitty-chan

Congratulations to the winners! ♥ I will note you each individually to discuss your prizes. I will also be sending notes to the prize donors instructing them to note you, so please don't send any notes to them, because that will make things confusing. (And donors, please don't send any notes to the winners until you've received and read the note from me.)

To all participants: Thank you so much, again. You gave me a very memorable birthday experience that I will treasure for a long time to come. ♥

To all donors: Thank you so much, too! I really appreciate your taking the time and effort to help me reward the winners of my contest. ♥

Thank you all so much!

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THERE WAS AN ANIME CONVENTION IN VANCOUVER!! :D (Apparently there's a lot of talk about it at the college every year, but I've never noticed? Ahaha. Or cared, I guess.)

www.kumoricon.org/

I'd really, REALLY like to go this year!

Seems really random, but I'd love to cosplay Kiana. (Cosplaying my own OC at an anime convention... seems weird?)

I already have plans for how I'm going to get most of her stuff:

Wig — online purchase

Shooting star clip — hand-sew + make a clip somehow

Puffy purple star — felted maybe? + make clip somehow

Unicorn clip — not sure! Didn't find anything good on Etsy

Necklace — hand-make with polymer clay

Blue shirt — already have

Purple polka-dot halter — take a purple shirt (dye it if I have to), use fabric paint for polka dots, and cut/tie it into a halter (will look sloppy, though)

Blue skirt — hand-tie tulle

Pink skirt — hand-tie tulle

Tights — take purple tights (dye if necessary) and use fabric paint and stencils

Legwarmers — crochet them

Purple Converse — already have



My blood sugar is low (I just had a juice, so don't worry), so sorry if I'm not making much sense right now ;_;

But I have a question.
What is a reliable place to buy wigs from?

I need it to be split purple and blue/mint (preferably in the same order that Kiana's is) with those wig falls and I am very wary of online shopping.

Pre-registration for the con is $40 and open through August 15th (the con is August 31 - September 2). I'm guessing that the wig + shipping will be up to $80. When I open commissions again in June, I will be using the Premium content platform so that my commissions can help pay for these purchases. :la:

I'm excited and would love to start making all of these items right away, but for once I have my priorities straight and will get my commissions and contest prizes done first. :)

Edit: I made the alternate account. :] It is SugarySparkles. If you want to fave my dessert photos, that is the place to do it~!

Hi again, everyone! ♥

It occurred to me today that I would like to create an alternate account to upload photos to — my dessert photos, fairy kei purchases, DIY crafts, etc. I haven't thought of a name yet, but when I do, I will post it. The photos in my current gallery will be deleted after I re-upload them to the new account, so watch out for that.

I also want to inform commissioners that I may not finish the art until the end of June or so. I hope that you understand. ♥ I've been feeling quite busy lately. Here's what I've been up to and how my foreseeable future looks:

-Working, of course, preferably 15-20 hours a week
-Taking the bus everywhere (which takes hours out of the day)
-Obsessively thrift store shopping, seeking anything remotely fairy-kei
-Planning how to make my own fairy kei items as well as items for Kiana's outfit for cosplay
-Taking a break from school; this will also allow me to get food stamps!
-Hoping to pick up a second part-time job (though convincing myself to actually DO it is quite hard. Job-hunting is an awful, self-conscious experience full of building up your courage and then having it torn down)

I'm currently obsessing with fairy kei and DIY stuff, though of course I have to make money to afford everything (!), so I'm going to be working well as more.

I will of course get all art that I owe done in as timely a manner as possible; it just may take longer than usual. :)

A huge thanks to everyone who's helped me out with Kiana's cosplay! :love:
