Cactus Ninja – my ninjatown-tribute is online!

as a ninjatown-fan and passionate “trees of doom“-player the idea sprung to my head to do another custom design of my papertoy-cactus friend.
and luckily enough, shawn, the mastermind behind ninjatown did like my idea and has now made a post on his website and made the template available for you to download and build!

sneak on over there and grab a copy of ninja-cuteness:  http://www.ninjatown.com/2111

what would be cool though, is, if you take pics of your paper-ninjas sitting around or hiding somewhere, if you could send me those. i have created a flickr-group of where they are found hiding. feel free to join and add your pics! ^^

KUJIRA – plush custom by DOLLY OBLONG ‘BARRY’


lookey what i received..

two weeks ago i went to amsterdam for an amazing event (post with pics following soon – promise!) and Dolly Oblong surprised me with this awesome gift and plush-custom of KUJIRA – meet BARRY THE BARRACUDA!

here he is on his way back with me to germany:

and i also brought along a little friend for him, his name is THE BLOB..
(you should really check out Dolly’s online-shop, she’s got some really nice little “knuffels” there for you.. ^^)

hopefully i can present you the paper-version of BARRY soon, as they promised me to make that one as well.

KUJIRA – IMA123 KUSTOM

finally added something new to the menu!

imawan rahadianto aka ima123 sent me this lovely KUJIRA-design. there is even a nice story behind his idea and custom-design. this is what he wrote:

Here goes the KujiraBatiken
it was actually a whale stuck in a group of batik sarong after the 7th month ceremony (a ceremony when a women is expecting her first born baby where during the 7th month period where she is randomly exchanging seven batik sarongs continuosly)
After the ceremony ends, the other women in the ceremony will hurry to grab those sarongs as they are believed to give blessings… well in this case the whale just won some of them…

thank you very much, imawan!
and now you can go to the menu and get a hold of him – here!

Plush-MechaBunny by OLLA BOKU

she’s done it! the first (and second) plush version of my MechaBunny-template has been turned into plush!
thank you Jessie, this is so cool – can’t wait to see them live!
Jessie, aka OLLA BOKU has transformed her own amazingly cute papertoy-version of MechaBunny into a plush-toy and even made me a special blank black version of him. i think they both look amazing and i hope this won’t be the last plushies done like that.
and to tease you all a little, i am planning on doing some more MechaBunnies out of different materials soon also – so stay tuned! ^^

again: thank you so much for those, Jessie!!

MechaBunnies at TOYKIO

on saturday i went for a cup of tea to the great TOYKIO in downtown düsseldorf and took along two paper-friends and they found a new home there.

from the TOYKIO-blog:

Yesterday Nick came in and suprised me with a new pet which he handed over to me. I named him “Gochilla’” and i couldn’t have been more wrong. He started behaving like a monkey straight away, jumping over our community table and making funny sounds. I ruled him so he had to calm down outside the store..



in the near future i also plan on doing a collab-work with or for them, so stay tuned to this channel and you’ll be the first to know and see.. ^^
meanwhile, have a lovely cup of coffee and some nice sweets or art or toys at TOYKIO and check out their site!
