AP x Disney Alice collaboration hair accessories and an Alice ring from Japan’s Disney store. Couldn’t resist these, I have a soft spot for Alice!
Okay so I LOVE the umbrellas Usagi and Mako-chan use in the opening and Act 5 of Sailor Moon Crystal so I made these designs and found a place to get them printed so if any one is interested I’m taking preorders. I want to send the first order out by 9/21 so if you are interested, please order before that date.
Place your orders here:
PLEASE NOTE: These are just mock ups. The actual umbrellas will be the folding kind that fit in a bag and won’t have hook handles. I can do hook handle umbrellas but it is going to cost a lot more.
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
