♥ Korean Mini Handmade Clay Watch Review ♥
Hi guys! :3 I attended the biggest Anime convention in North America; Anime Expo few weeks ago! I was hoping that maybe in the future I can have a booth over there. Anyway, I had a GREAT time meeting lots of people including my favorite artists, I’m SO thrilled The trip was totally worth it!
I’ve been planning my upcoming shows since I came back. I wanted to attend main shows in Florida, maybe Georgia in the future. Uhm, we will see how it goes. As long I have you guys supporting me, I’ll do my best bringing cutest, most unique items to your con!
I want to update and change my blog function. Now I want to include my store item reviews. My own review. Of course, you’ll see lots of pictures and more details explanation of the item. I’m hoping by doing this, many of you will know more about the items or service that I’m offering.
Okie, here is my first review of kawaii but high quality watches from Korea.
OMG, they are SO pretty and well made!
These are very popular fashion watches in Asia. It’s miniature watch (short for mini watch). They use high quality materials to make watches. What is unique about the watch is that they HANDMADE each little miniature figures in the watch using polymer clay. All the clay are hand molded and hand painted by their artists.
Using genuine leather, stainless steel back, alloy case, Japanese movements, and Czechoslovakia crystal. They make beautiful piece of art for everyone to adore! <3
In the beginning, I was not sure about HOW well made are these watches, but after my first order, I was like “OMG, they are SO pretty and well made!” I’m GLAD that I became one of their distributor and I wish all of my customers own a piece of this kawaii watch! <3
Since they are fashion watches, they have tons of styles. New styles are released each month and phase out those aren’t so popular. So, you ALWAYS get to see the newest styles in my shop, selected by me. ^_^ Since there are A LOT of styles, I focus mainly on “cute” & “girly” styles.
Affordable ≠ Cheap Quality
Mini watch always wanted to impress their customers, so in the beginning of this year, they created an new line called “Ceramic Element”! Using finest imported ceramic, natural shell dial, pearls and Czech crystal diamond, created a beautiful but affordable ceramic watch!
Most of us know how expensive these ceramic watches are. I bought a Guess ceramic watch from Macy’s few years ago and I paid $350.00USD (not including tax -_-) for it. And the repair guy who “suppose” to change my battery ruined the rotating bezel! Seems like he didn’t know how to “rotate” -_- so my watch was ruined and I cried. >_<
BUT this Mini ceramic watches are AFFORDABLE! OMG, I meant, they aren’t cheap but compare to other ceramic watches, these are very very good price. Unless you are into name brand like Channel or Dior. >_O Affordable ≠ Cheap Quality, I totally agreed! Sometimes, you CAN find good quality items with good price! :3 and, I totally agreed that not all expensive stuffs are good. Like those expensive name brand shoes for example? gosh, I do not want to wear it and walk around. It looks pretty when you standing still but boy, when you’re start walking it HURTS. LOL
Anyway, this is my review on Mini handmade watches. I hope you liked it. Please visit my store to find out more about these watches.
Please take care~~
RuRu Victoria at Miami HUrricon 2014~
It’s been a while since my last post! After came back from Megacon I was working on my next convention…which is Hurricon.
Hurricon is small convention managed by University of Miami. I love this con, why? Because it was my FIRST ever convention as vendor. I liked atmosphere and the people. They are all super nice! This is why I decided to come back <3
I wanted to introduce many new collections/creation from my studio…I think I was trying too hard to accomplish everything BUT thank GOD! And with my Mom’s help I was able to finish what I wanted.
This was the first plush that I created. I wanted to introduce these cute bunnies to my customers and also want to know their feedback and reaction about the bunny. At the end, I can say, BABY BUNS are the cutest thing ever!! Everyone who came to my table loved these little buns :3 I guess, Baby Buns will be a regular collection in my shop!
Haru Taro was the 2nd plush that I created. I LOVED these furry creatures! They are very soft and fluffy. I made each one of them have different facial expression. I found out that a lot of guys liked these furry monsters. I’m very surprised
I only have 1 white left from convention, rest of the Haru Taro were sold. OH MY GOODNESS!! This is such a good news! I am so happy that customers are actually having fun with Haru Taro. When I make more, I’ll post a video on “How do you play with Haru Taro” xD
Aside from plush, I got the usual items such as alpacasso and amigurumi plush. I didn’t have time to make a lot but I managed to make 2, one for my customer’s order and 1 for the convention. :3
Besides selling, I had a great time at the convention. My family and friends came over visit me. They were next to my table and trying to help me xD I’m SO grateful that I got support from my family. They don’t look at me like a weird person ( maybe I’m already weird to them, LOL). My SIL even gonna help me at the convention in the future, WOW! :3
Here are few pictures that I took at the convention… didn’t have much time to take many selfie, but next time I’ll make sure to take TONS of pics for memories <3
My table <3
Haru Taro and I
Me as Makoto from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club ^^

♣ Usagi & Hitsuji amigurumi from Anime Karneval ♣
YAY!!!! I finally finished this custom order!! HAPPY~~~ There were some difficulties during the making these amigurumi, but thank God, I overcome these troubles
“Good evening Master, welcome home!”
I enjoyed very much creating these two anime characters! I love Karneval a lot, it’s sad that they are not making for 2nd season, really hope they will!
I was planning to crochet usagi (bunny) & hitsuji (sheep) outfits BUT something came up and I NEVER could make their hats straight… so blah -_- I gave up!!!! Instead of crochet their outfit, I used wool felt to make their cloaks and top hat. Since both cuties have very fancy hats, I used pearl beads and lace flowers to decorate their hats. For usagi’s cloak, I used mini buttons instead of felt to make cloak look better. Love it!
Fly usagi, Fly!
Took me two nights to finish both outfits. Hitsuji has prettier rose on his hat I don’t know why I didn’t give usagi one but he has a fancy white heart button, so I guess that counts too. >_<
These cuties are going to a very good home. I know their owners will love them and treasure them. ah~ ^__^ That makes me really happy <3 Thank you for liking my amigurumi ♥
I’m a bunny lover, so I took usagi more than hitsuji, hehehe.
“not fair!” hitsuji said
Don’t you agree? He SO adorable and I like his facial expression…so serious, haha.
Ok, ok, here is hitsuji….he’s a serious sheep who wants to protect his masters.
I’m not sure if I want to make another set, but, I can make usagi ONLY through custom order. If you’re interested, send me a note or comment below. Please note that the working time will be at least 2 weeks per plush. Since I have a lot of pending orders and making new designs at the same time. >_<
Color manipulation. I really like this aquamarine color. I’m hoping that I can buy yarns with this color… D: I gotta shop really hard again! I WANT THIS COLOR~ >_<
Ah, almost forgot! I’ll attend Hurricon, a one-day anime convention on April 19th. I’m on the process design my new plush (nuigurumi)! They will featured in the convention. SO, if you are living in South Florida please, PLEASE come! They offer free admission, so please come and say hello! ^^ If you cosplay, I’d LOVE to take picture with you! I’ll be cosplay Makoto from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club! xD not the swimsuit version but the version where they wear jackets? Hopefully it’s not too hot for me @_@
Have a great day~ I’m going to finish another custom order now >_<
♥ Animate! Miami Anime Convention 2014 ♥
Haven’t update this blog for quiet some time now because I was busy preparing my first ever convention, attending Animate!Miami anime convention!
It’s a smaller convention compare to others. 2013 only had about 5000 attendees but report said this year they have about 10,000 attendees! Wow, I was happy to know that. Hopefully next year they will grow into a bigger convention!
Anyway, I had a great time… too bad that I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I was busy meeting new people and working ( really?lol). Me and my friend cosplay during the convention. It was fun! I enjoyed a lot and hopefully we can go to conventions to sell things together.
We were there the day before to set up the booth. We had NO idea what to setup or how to make our booth look nicer, but we did a fantastic job, isn’t?
Cute unicorn next to our booth, an excellent icon for convention! I’m considering to make one, this is TOO cute <3
Taking few pictures with my cute alpacasso! It was cold so earmuffs are PERFECT! Of course the fun part was when we cosplay ^^ Here are few cosplay pictures for you to enjoy
This gift was from the vendor next to us. I was told that they were very excited because they saw my store name. I found out that they’re my Facebook followers!!! OH MY! Such as small world isn’t it? I LOVE these cute pins, they even gave me an alpacasso pin! I was wearing it during the whole convention, I LOVE IT Thank you thank you! ♥
Here is my Junko Enoshima cosplay! I took it while I had a little time. This cute mint flavor bear was sold to a lovely Mikasa <3
I made the little bird (On top of my head), a lot of people bought them, I’m very happy and surprised ^^
MIKASA & EREN!!!!!! Mikasa bought 3 of my amigurumi, I was like :O I am SO happy that someone liked my work! ♥
She’s ordering a custom made Usagi & Hitsuji (Karneval) from me!!! OMG! I’m working on it atm and will post WIP in here shortly.
This is Sushi Monster, she’s the guest cosplayer from the convention. She’s very pretty and skinny O__O oh my goodness, I wish I am THAT skinny >_< She bought a pink alpacasso from me. I was shy to ask her for picture but my friend encouraged me, so I ran to her for picture. She’s very friendly <3
One of the feature item from my shop in 2014 is Korean handmade Clay Watch! These babies are hot sale items in convention. Good results! I think I’m going to carry this item from now on in my shop. If you’re interested, you can visit my shop. ^^
Little snack for hardworking ladies <3 <3 Mr.Baird’s Gaijin Taiyaki was DELICIOUS! I don’t like chocolate BUT this chocolate toffee taste great! I think I can eat that again and again LOL!
This is taken at the first day of the convention by our friend Paul, from ManStudio Photography. Check out his facebook page, he’s an amazing photographer! Very nice guy!
I thought would be fun to make a photo collage I had a best time ever selling at the convention. Not because it’s a business but I got a chance to meet new people, making new friends…oh and of course, lots of pictures!! xD
This is my favorite picture, kissing my tissue box alpacasso ^^ She’s available for adoption, man, this alpacasso wants to work for you ^___^ Who wants to adopt her, hehehe.
I want to thank my friend’s support during our short 3 day convention. Without their help, I won’t survive They are AMAZING ladies and I LOVE THEM! I’m still waiting for an open spot for our dinner date ladies *wink wink* :3
My next possible convention as vendor is Hurricon in April. I hope to have enough time to reveal new items. I will post in here as time progresses. OH OH, if you’re going to Megacon in March, please let me know so we can have pictures together and exchange coscard! ^__^

♦ Convention Preparation Part I ♦
Since we’ve decided to attend the convention as vendor, we started to worry about “WHAT TO SELL?”
If you have followed our blog or Facebook long enough, you probably knew that we sell Alpacasso and… Alpacasso! Few handmade items sold here and there but mostly Alpacasso. OKAY, this is a problem for us, hmm.
We want to provide varieties of merchandise in the convention and keep our customers eyes busy. Of course quality products are our first priority. Rest assure that our items are clean, well made and kawaii! LOL. I said it “clean!” yup, as I discovered few vendors were displaying “dirty” merchandises and others were displaying merchandises looked kind of “old-ish” I told myself, I’ll not let that happen!
This is our convention banner, please look for this banner and come to say “hi” to us, we LOVE to meet each and everyone of you ^_^

♥ 3CE UV Fresh Fluid Review ♥
I was searching all over the Internet trying to find reviews on 3CE UV Fresh Fluid but I couldn’t. So, I thought maybe I should write a simple review to help others. I am a “read-reviews-before-purchase” type of person. I don’t really believe 100% of what review said since it’s a personal experience and it might not apply to my case, BUT I do put it into consideration before I purchase something, specially makeups.Read More»
