Updated 10-3-12 : I made 3 more for my table at AnimeFest 2012. I sold out completely. I even sold the first prototype that is first pictured below. I cannot tell you how incredible that made me feel.
05-14-12 : I read FF8 “Final Fantasy 8” fanfiction. There was this one called the Life series and in there they really played up the guardian force, Carbuncle, as a character. It was so cute that I just fell in love. This actually is the second time I have made a Carbuncle hat version. I usually only make one since this really is not a very popular character at all. I am pretty pleased with the results.
