So I would not consider myself a big gamer, I love Nintendo and the cute games they still make such as Mario, Wario, Pokemon and Animal Crossing themed ones. I play the Xbox with my boyfriend occasionally when we get an itch to dance or shoot zombies. I also have some awesome games on my iPhone that I can easily get addicted to. I even played Diablo, Everquest, Warcraft, Hello Kitty Online and other assorted RPGs or MMORPGs a bit obsessively through the years. I have found though the most common sort of games I play are simulation games (Sims, Second Life, Animal Crossing, digital pets). When I look for new games or new consoles the reason I even consider buying, paying or playing is if there is a rad new simulation or creative style game that looks like a fun new hobby or extension of my passion about designing everything in life. My games tend to revolve around designing or building something, getting creative or just having fun arranging and improving (what my boyfriend considers to be the more boring parts of gaming (even through he is an award-winning artist)).

I first started playing the Sims when the first ever Sims came out for PC (Feb 2000). I was in love. I played it, my brother played it, my friends played it, my high school boyfriend played it. We even had computer parties where we would sit and play the Sims making houses for hours on end like every normal couple (ha). I was pretty young so sometimes after school I’d find myself getting on my computer to play then noticing that 5+ hours had went by and I wasn’t nearly to the goal I had for my Sim that day. Games like this keep me coming back and keep me interested in their growth. When the Sims 2 came out my obsession grew a bit and I found myself more entranced more with my characters rather than just their homes. The Sims 3 brought a heavy obsession with both and designing both as I loved to do for Second Life, which also has a huge fanbase. You can really create anything you can think of and with the introduction of online profiles your friends can follow your characters, creations and worlds easily. Both games have a multitude of customization options and fan-made downloads to create your own experience. No one is limited to what the developers wanted things to look like and even encouraged to create custom content. THIS is the reason that I will continue to play these games when I have free time for gaming and the whole reason I made this new feature-section about games. I am a mac-player as well and I feel most game information for these games is PC-based or non-kawaii based which is something I’d like to improve a bit on.

I’m going to feature content and mods from digital artists who share our style of whimsical, kawaii and kitsch as well as tips and nonsense about improving the gaming experience itself. I will also put my own material here when I prepare a collection of Miseducated-style goodies for your Simland. Some of my customizations are linked below.

    pile of squares

    This is an easy charm quilt pattern for a beginner. I am COMPLETELY new to quilting. In fact this is my very first quilt so I’ll be learning along with you! Because I am so new I looked at a few patterns, one for a rag quilt, one for a charm quilt and one for a baby quilt, and altered them a bit for my Blythe-sized doll quilt. Remember this is a rag doll quilt so it’s not going to look pristine unless you are a seasoned quilter which I definitely am not. Also be sure to read to the end of this post for things learned upon making this. 😉

    cutting the squares
    line them up (blurry!)

    First cut out 25 1.5 inch wide squares of your chosen fabric(s) and lay them out as you would prefer them to look by your sewing area. If you want a rectangular quilt you’ll need to cut 5 rows of 8 squares = 40 squares.

    sewing charms
    sewing messily

    Next sew 5 rows of 5 squares each with a 1-2 cm seam allowance. After you’ve sewn all of your rows press them and sew them in numerical order to each other (see how messy I sew??).

    Next cut out a thin piece of fabric in your desired pattern the size of your quilt and piece them off sides together if you’re quilt stitching. Quilt stitching is the part I don’t understand so after doing extensive research online I found out that there really is no easy way to do it. You can do it yourself or ask a quilter to help you out. You can find a pattern online and follow the pattern by hand or machine. I chose to skip it.

    sewing

    To give your quilt a more finished look you’ll want to bind the borders with fabric — or make it easy and use thick-ribbon. I’m also new at binding so I decided to skip it this time and sew my quilt to the other panel as though I was making a pillow. I put them right sides together and sewed around the edges leaving a small (2-3 inch) space. Then I turned the blanket right-side out and, because I am not a quilter, sewed a line from one corner to the other making a big X to keep the pieces together.

    Things I learned: Next time I’m going to make it 5 squares by 8 squares for a Blythe-bed sized quilt. I didn’t think about how small it would be getting upon sewing it, duh!

    Middie Blythe is Here!

    All of the information about Middie Blythe has been officially released from BlytheDoll.com.

    A new sized model for your creations and photos awaits!

    Middie (Middle) Blythe is here — but she doesn’t have a middle child complex because she has a super cute charm that the other’s don’t have. She can turn her head to the side!

    For everybody who was wondering who Middie Blythe is, your wait is over!
    Middie looks slightly younger looking than a Neo Blythe and slightly more grown up than a Petite Blythe.
    She is called “Middie” because her size is in between Neo and Petite, but it spells “Middie” instead of “Midi” so it sounds like a cute girl’s name.
    Her head is table to tilt to the left or the right with eye move technology enhancing her charming gaze!

    Customizing Blythe: How to Paint Lips Like a Pro

    Hello! I customize blythe dolls for both fun and for some profits. So far I have been doing it for just a little over year. I started when I was 15 and my first doll was quite terrible (as I wasn’t very careful), but I got better and better with every doll,and have now done 20+ dolls. So here is a tutorial for re-coloring or customizing the lips of a Blythe doll, hope you like it!

    blythe lip tutorial

    Step 1

    Gather your supplies: Blythe, fine-grit sanding sponge, a small flat paint-brush and a bigger softer paint-brush, chalk pastels in a lighter and darker color, and watercolor-pencils in a darker color and white.

    Step 2

    Sand off the original lip color (you may have to scrape the paint in the crease away with a some-what dull x-acto knife). With the small paint-brush, brush the darker pastel color in the crease of the lips and lightly outward.

    Step 3

    Use the darker watercolor-pencil to define the crease and add some lip wrinkles.

    Step 4

    Use the white watercolor-pencil to add texture with quick strokes, and lightly color with it to blend with the darker color.

    Step 5

    Brush the lighter color pastel on with the bigger paintbrush and you’re done!

    … and it make take a few tries to get it right, so don’t get frustrated! 😉

    Mew for Today: Tickle Me Green

    It’s St. Patrick’s Day, green shamrocks and rainbow bridges to pots of gold. Green beer. It’s time to celebrate because, as if you needed a reason anyway, there’s a holiday underway.

    Green is the color of life and the earth. It signifies growth, health, environment and is often used for it’s calming effects.

    Spend Your Day Tickled Green

    First, start your day by preparing the cutest of the sweets, pistachio macarons at Tartelette. If you’re feeling thirsty grab an iced green tea to refresh and wake you up. Use milk and matcha powder or brewed green tea with ice.
    Next get prepared for a night out on the town or for a very-green party at home. Make sure your outfit contains lots of green and is reminiscent of whimsical St. Patrick’s Day for extra fun — I relate green, rainbows and gold to St. Patrick’s Day due to the decorations!
    Add a couple of drops of green food coloring to just about anything to green it up in a flash. This is great for beer and drinks as well as baked sweets.
    No matter what you do I hope you can spend it with loved ones having fun and enjoying great food as every holiday should be shared.

    What is a MUNNY?

    A cute vinyl creature often designed by designers and ran in a blind box set or offered as blank, DIY toys just waiting for you to turn them into your dream action figure! 😉 There’s actually a large culture of vinyl figure collectors and creators, even Hasbro’s My Little Pony jumped in on the action by allowing artists to design blank ponies for an NYC gallery years ago.

    Super Cute Party Ideas and Recipes

    Throwing a party always sounds like a good idea when you’ve got a great theme and apt time to invite friends! When planning an adult party with friends the most important thing to remember is keep it fun, keep it going strong (until the party ends). Sometimes when several groups of friends are invited there is an awkward time period where guests don’t feel comfortable talking, make sure to serve drinks, snacks and start a fun group game or a conversation that all parties can participate in. Even if you feel your guests aren’t the crafty type, whip out some diy stations! Have a coloring section with vintage toons to bring back fond memories or a beading station. Sometimes guests simply enjoy doing things with their hands while chatting.

    Themes are commonly overlooked by today’s party throwers, after all we don’t have the time of the 50s housewife to focus on every last detail. We can however design one rad party.

    Try throwing a..

    Craft Party

    Set up numerous types of craft stations for making worthwhile goodies. Ask party goers to bring their own doodads and knick*knacks for your stations. (Hint: vintage charm earrings, mosaic frames/mirrors, water coloring desserts)

    Holiday Party

    For those tapped out on ideas, you could just wait for any ole holiday to roll by and throw a party in honor of it. You can do a Valentine party with pink champagne, karaoke and heart decor; or bunny-shaped mooncakes for the Chinese New Year.

    Taffy-Pulling Party

    A fun retro party for adults or children. Just throw in some candy-flavored cocktails and have the taffy ready for pulling after everyone arrives and gets introduced.

    Saltwater Taffy Recipe
    3/4 cup water
    2 cups sugar
    1 1/4 cups corn syrup
    2 tablespoons butter
    Flavoring and coloring as desired
    1 teaspoon salt

    Measure 2 cups sugar, l 1/4 cups corn syrup, 3/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt into a saucepan and blend well with a wooden spoon. Place over low heat until sugar has dissolved, stirring continuously. Increase the heat and do not stir during the rest of the cooking. Wash the sides of the pan with a brush or fork covered with muslin and dipped in water, using an upward motion. This will prevent the formation of crystals which might cause the candy to sugar. After the syrup boils put in the candy thermometer, and when the thermometer registers 265 degrees, remove candy from heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter and stir very gently. Divide the taffy into three parts; you’ll add different flavors and coloring to each one during the pulling process.

    Drive-in Party

    Bring snacks, grill-out, set out picnic blankets and lawn chairs and prepare your projector for a private, friends-only outdoor screening. Try a creepy, crawly horror film while camping!

    Disco Party

    Dressing the part is a must, dig out your soul train collection and project it onto the wall or play it in your tv set, think dark, lights, glitter and mirrors to create a disco fantasyland. Skates can be optional if you don’t have carpet hiding your floors. The only thing better than disco is roller disco.

    Costume Party

    Theme it over a certain costume, such as a Marie Antoinette Cocktail Party, or allow all costumes.

    Tea Party

    Have many assorted pots of tea and teacups of all shapes and sizes everywhere, guests should have the option of trying whichever tea they like! Be sure to have sugar cubes and cream available for the sweetie lovers. Scones, cupcakes, tartes and tortes are musts. Do not skimp, break out the strawberries and chocolate. Litter the table with champagne glasses and raspberries and break out the champagne and dessert wine if the tea party continues into the evening.

    trois tea

    Psychedelic Party

    Trippy records, shag rugs, motion lamps and colorful lights. View some vintage cartoons about dreamland and take a walk outside through the neighborhood. Live near any parks or beaches? They might be fun to explore with friends.

    Bring-Along-Pets Party

    This could be fun or horrible! It all depends on your small ones. Make sure there is ample food and water around, keep it specific to one type of animal such as cats, small dogs or large dogs (would be best in the backyard or at a local dog park).

    Funny Hats Party

    For those that aren’t ready or willing to commit to a full-costume party. You can also have a 40s Hat Party, a Tacky Brooch party, etc.

    Masquerade

    Require masks upon entry or make masks upon entry. Use classical music and offer whimsical, fantastic foods such as magical candied apples and Absolut Raspberri Royals.

    Absolut Raspberri Royal
    1 Part ABSOLUT Raspberri
    3 Parts Champagne
    Raspberry

    Add all ingredients into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with 3 whole raspberries.

    Similar Hobby Bring-Along Party

    Collect anything that would constitute a fun party? Think Blythe dolls, sweets and cameras!

    Mod Party

    Keep everything mod and chill. The recipes, music, party wear, everything.

    Any theme you select simply do a bit of searching on.. say I’m going to throw a 80s party then I’m going to find a good selection of 80s toons, 80s movies, similar themed-foods, activities, decor, music, etc. Do a bit of research on the topic you chose (a Fairy Tea Party!) and find ideas for food and decor.

    The possibilities are absolutely endless.

    Who is Blythe, the Collectable Doll from Japan?

    Who is Blythe? Blythe is the girl with magic in her eyes~ Kenner produced blythe doll in 1972 and soon stopped because of low sales. Gina Garan, photography genius, released a book of her works in 2000 which sparked much interest. She has aided in Blythe’s reproduction by Takara in 2001 and Blythe is still going strong. Warning Blythe steals hearts wherever she goes.

    I found about Blythe many years ago because I have a love for dolls from 60s-70s, but I did not fall in love with her immediately. Instead, I kept a fascination from afar and enjoyed looking at photos of others’ dolls. I bought my first Blythe doll in 2003, Disco Boogie, after that I was hooked and suddenly had 12 dolls.
