Never mind poetry--I have a Feral Boy here!
Sasha Blaze
Flist, meet Saiki. Sculpted by Minawa Aya, soon to be made lifelike by thelyn, and currently perched precariously atop the SD13 body that, after all I paid for it, I certainly hope isn't too bulky for him.

Also: the kimonos I bought? Well, I've only opened one, because I'm savoring the excitement, but I'll just say--Worth. Every. Penny. This first brocade one included not only the underlayer kimono and the outer black one, but two soft sashes, an obi, AND a haori in the same brocade as the outer kimono.

I really wish I didn't have a music rehearsal and a ton of reading to do tonight, AND a trip out of town tomorrow through Saturday morning. I want to stay home and plaaaaaaaaaay!

And just think--without the Internet, who woulda knew? ;-)

Enablers R Us! The sculptor is Minawa Aya, and the Saiki head is the only one she's selling right now, but I do have hopes for his brother Inkstone someday; she's made noises in her blog about planning production for him, too. Here's the website: http://minawa.main.jp

Since I bought this head on Y!J, she's added a direct sales page, but with my two words of Japanese, I wouldn't have been able to navigate it. All homage to Celga, who make it possible for me to spend SO much money, not to mention entertain the local post office with my frequent trips to sign for EMS packages . . .

What a great site. You have 2 more words of Japanese than I do. But I love her disclaimers. *G*

nifty.com has helped me a LOT with the site (her little English disclaimer only went up a few days ago)--its webpage translation service produces something almost like human language for this one.

Minawa-san's blog is fun: she complains about wanting a boyfriend and posts pictures of weird things she's bought, as well as talking about her sculpting. Right now she's going on vacation, where her highest ambition is to stay in the same ryokan room where Mishima once stayed. ;-)

And did you see the head she sculpted for that strange little vintage mechanical servant doll? Too cool.
