UPDATE: Chakura-hime

Hihi, It’s time for an update for Chakura-hime! I received update photos of the finished samples a couple of days ago from my manu and shared that on my IG story. I am also adding them here, because let’s be honest - I am in love with them. As far as timeframes go, my manu is actually ahead of schedule! I’m already confident in their quality after having seen the completed samples and I hope that gives you some peace of mind as well.   The estimated timeframe that I’ve kept in mind is as follows: Sample Production - 18 days Bulk Production - 25 days Shipment - 5-7 days So far my manu is two days ahead of schedule, so...

UPDATE: Chakra Babies 1 & 9

Hi lovelies! I am very happy to say that Gold Chakra Baby #9 and Black Nickel Chakra Baby #1 are finally finally finally in my possession. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotion for me with these little guys, especially since these were my first pin babies.  I am taking today to grade, polish, and organize pins, and will update my shop tonight.  How does this affect me? First things first, my top priority is fulfilling the orders that are still open. I am packaging these orders and will be dropping them off at the post office today! Thank you so very much for your patience with me as my manu worked to get their initial issues resolved. If you have any questions...

Chakura-hime

Hello, I hope you’re all well. I am really, really excited for Chakura-hime! This is my first big pin, and I hope it does her justice. Honestly, I feel like she is underrated in the series, but she is truly the definition of perserverance. I’ll keep things short, if you’ve followed along with my Chakra Baby updates, you’ve probably realized by now that I can get quite wordy. (Sorry!)  There are several things that I wanted to bring up about this particular design. I lowered the LE. Both Black Nickel and Rose Gold plated variants were originally 50 pcs each, but I decided to lower the LE to 40 pcs for each variant - this allows me to have a third colorway...

UPDATE: Chakra Babies 1 & 9

Hi! It’s ya girl, here to bring you the latest news from Hamachi Harlot land. Okay, that sounds kind of lame, lol. I apologize for the amount of time that’s passed since my last update. I have decided to keep my updates separated to each project, though as I take on more and more things, that may change in the future. If you are looking for Chakura-hime updates, please proceed to the appropriate blog post. I promise I will try not to over-complicate things. ;)  A lot has happened, both pin-related and otherwise, and I’m just trying to find a good balance between business and pleasure… organization is my strong suit, but it’s sometimes difficult to prioritize when everything is...

UPDATE: Chakra Babies 1 & 9

This is a follow up to my previous post. I'm happy to say that both Chakra Babies look amazing, and I was able to send out a majority of the orders I had for them! That said, there were a couple of variants that needed to be remade. Chakra Baby #9 As you know, Rose Gold Chakra Baby #9 has been switched to Gold plating for remakes. I have received Gold Chakra Baby #1, and am confident that the Gold Chakra Baby #9 pins will be beautiful. Chakra Baby #1 I was able to properly clean a fair amount of the Black Nickel variant and they look great, however Black Nickel pins are still being remade on principle.  To avoid the quality issue that Rose Gold Chakra Baby...
