Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Weddings! Family! And babies! OH MY! Talk about one incredible non-stop month! The highlight:  my brother married his little bride on the 17th, and then my brother-in-law married his bride on the 24th. Slap in a ton of traveling, some family events, and a dash of people coming and going and you've got yourself quite the sandwich!

Which brings me to this fan-based paper art. I've been trying to work on this for the past 3 weeks, but between work and all of the hullabaloo I haven't been able to touch it. I finally got to really dig into it on Friday and Sunday, and viola! It's been about 15 years since I was first introduced to Sailor Moon, and I still enjoy the quirky antics of those sailor senshi.

Meet the newest addition to our little household! Kiki! Last week, a friend of mine was backing out of her parking spot at her apartment. As she glanced to the side, she saw a teeny-tiny-itty-bitty scraggly ball of black curled up right where her car was parked. Without a moment's hesitation, she slammed on the breaks, jumped out, and rescued the poor, heavily undernourished, abandoned kitten.

We love this little scamp! And she loves to wage war on the wii-motes, our feet, my bra (for some reason), the laundry bags, the guitar, foam and fabric scraps, felt balls, jingle bells, feathers, books, paper, hair, glasses, annnnnnd spiders. She also loves being right up in your face (the shoulder is her favorite)! And she LOVES Dallin, which I find hilarious because of how worried he was about inviting a cat into our home. But I don't think it's a problem now. HE picks her up and puts her on his shoulder. :)

The final installment for the owl season series. I wasn't as gung-ho to finish this one as I have been the others. A large part of that is due to a top secret hush-hush commission I received while in the middle of working on this piece. I'm ridiculously excited for the upcoming project (it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun to put together). But! In the meantime, summer owl:

(This collection idea came to me after seeing one of Brittney Lee's pieces)
