Few weeks back, my cousin asked me to make a botan and dango (respectively) keychain for him.
OK BUT WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY LUL
Basically they are side characters on an anime call Clannad. It was a visual novel and then a TV series based on the visual novel was created. It's basically.....LOVE STORY. Haha. But Season Two, called Clannad After Story, apparently made everyone whom I know who watched it cried. I haven't gotten to it yet, but I know why dango is so....lovable.
First. DANGO IS A KIND OF FOOD.
And for the first season of Clannad, the ending song was this:
please watch, it's very amusing and after awhile, very addicting
LOOK AT THE LYRICS. WHAT THE HELL. HAHAHAHAHHAA IT'S SO ADORABLE THE MELODY IS GREAT THE SONG ARRANGEMENT IS GREAT BUT IT'S ABOUT A SPECIFIC FOOD AND A BIG FAMILY OF THE SAME KIND OF FOOD WHAT THE-
It has already find it's way to my iTunes playlist. LOL. Isn't it adorable ihsagdilashgbcvlaiwhebc. I got a tiny bit obsessed with this song for awhile and they look so bouncy too omgosh.
So my junior saw the post on my instagram account and she was also a fellow dango-addict. She custom ordered from me one dango. Now the one I made for my cousin were both made from airdry clay. And I did not know what I was thinking haha. Airdry clay does NOT make good keychain. It's TOO squishy and it could get torn easily. So of course I made it with polymer clay this time so it's more durable.
YEAH I MADE QUITE A LOT (RATHER THAN ONE LOL)
I figured since I have so much colour of the clay I mixed left, might as well make more right.
I gave one of them to my cousin, since I told him if I made it out of polymer clay I'll make him one, since I felt so bad about the flimsy, squishy air dry clay. But there's 9 of them and 9 - 2 = 7MORE HAHHAHAHAA
SO YES, YOU GUESSED RIGHT (if you were even guessing at all)
My friend was like, YOU CRAZY AH SO MANY GIVEAWAYS, SELL IT LA. Hahaha. Yeah I'm actually quite broke now...but oh well.. I'm not really good yet, so in a way, giving away stuff and getting feedback will be very important to me. Plus, I have to settle my packaging etc before I 'officially' open for custom orders. :D
Slow and steady~
