I’m excited to finally share a gameplay video of the first 20 minutes of PriPara All Idol Perfect Stage! for the Nintendo Switch. This is the latest PriPara idol rhythm game, and was selected as my April import game by my lovely Patreon members! I was able to record the gameplay footage thanks everyone who’s supported my Patreon so far, too. If you’d like to vote on future import game coverage, check out my Patreon for more details!
The Black Friday sales madness is upon us! It can be pretty hectic trying to make sense of all the different deals going on, especially if you’re trying to pick up Christmas, Hanukkah, or other holiday presents for people (or maybe December birthday folks like me!). That’s why, I thought I’d share some of my favorite items in my TeePublic Curator Store that you can pick up during TeePublic’s Black Friday sale! That makes this a great companion post to my holiday gift guide – be sure to check that out, too, if you haven’t already!
I also got my hands on some of TeePublic’s newer homeware items (including that amazing pillow in the header image), so I’ll be sharing photos and thoughts on those, as well! Read on for lots of awesome nerdy gifts that also help support independent artists!
During my last trip to the US, I decided I wanted to work on my outdoor photography and video skills. Basically, I’m completely terrified of it! It’s one of those things where I know it’s irrational, but I get very embarrassed whenever I take a photo or video in public. I would really like to work on conquering my fear before my trip to Tokyo next month, when I plan on taking a million photos and videos to share with you! So, while it may not exactly be usual Chic Pixel fare, my most recent upload to my YouTube channel features a little shopping trip to Target!
I first became aware of Stasia’s adorable brand Ugly Plants around the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, when photos of her amazing Mimikyu plushies were circulating around the internet. But I soon found out that Stasia is not only extremely skilled at making plushies of Pokémon and other cute characters, but all kinds of other merchandise, too!
Back in July, I shared a picture of a magnet I made by sticking a cute Hakuouki art card on a magnet ad I got in the mail on my Instagram feed. I was really surprised by the positive response I got! I’m really passionate about reusing/recycling things when possible, and it was really nice to see people interested in the whole idea of kawaii paper magnets. That’s why, for this week’s video, I decided to try my hand at a DIY video tutorial on how to make kawaii paper magnets yourself!
Each month I’ve been trying my best to upload a new Hobonichi Techo flip through, and even though I’ve fallen a little behind, I’ve finally posted my April video! If you like cute stationery, journaling, or just want to see how I fill out my daily Hobonichi Techo pages, please give it a watch!
I knew keeping up with daily journaling would get more and more difficult as I neared the end of my thesis, but what’s surprised me is that I do use it daily, I just don’t always have time to gussy up the pages. Writing down my daily tasks in my Hobonichi Techo the night before has totally become a part of my routine, and I always look forward to carving out some time (usually on weekends) to dedicate to cutting up cute pictures, adding stickers, or drawing on the pages!
If you’re looking for a form of stress relief that doesn’t involve staring at a screen (honestly, we could all use a little less screen time these days), I highly recommend trying out some kind of journaling! Hopefully I’ll have my May flip through ready to share sometime soon!
If you’ve been following Chic Pixel for a while, you know I love all things cute and nerdy. It’s pretty much one of my life goals at this point to surround myself with as many things that fit into those categories as possible! I also feel it’s really important to support independent artists who create awesome, unique products, so I’m always on the lookout for cool new creators on the internet. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve teamed up with TeePublic to offer a curated storefront featuring all my favorite designs from artists such as miski, Paulina Ganucheau, and more!
