A walk in the park with Fifi Lapin

30 Jul

The world knows Fifi Lapin to be a socialite.

A bunny who won’t forgo style for substance, and fashion for form.

I wonder if she’ll take a brolly out in the rain, if it so happens to clash with her colours?

Mairuru

Now, 7 more facts about Meimoirs of amiguruMEI:

  1. She is an Instagram addict, who likes taking her pictures with sunlight streaming through the windows.
  2. She enjoys making videos of other types of crafts, and would post a new one up every 2 weeks (links available on the right).
  3. She is currently reading The Complete Adventures of The Borrowers by Mary Norton, in hopes of learning more about Arrietty, who appeared in Studio Ghibli’s Karigurashi (The Borrower Arriety).
  4. She is currently taking Japanese lessons. She hopes to revisit Tokyo, Japan one day soon, and watch all her favourite animes without the help of English subtitles.
  5. She is a big fan of Dexter and Fringe, but was sorely disappointed by the latter’s latest season developments.
  6. She has tried playing The Legend of Zelda theme via the Ocarina iPad app by Smule. A visually funny attempt, to say the least.
  7. She recently needle-felted her own Totoro book bag and was happy for weeks after.

Thank you once again to all our friendly readers for believing in us!

Marcelle of the circus

18 Jul

Marcelle is a fuzzy French elephant who likes, among other things, baby blue cotton candy.

For those who are often fooled by her sweet wooly demeanour, one must know that Marcelle was once a famous trapeze artist.

She has since left the circus, in hopes of finding greener pastures.
