I am totally ecstatic! I won my tickets in the pre-sale lottery for the Buck Tick’s standing lives at Zepp Tokyo this December, the Fish Tanker’s only Live on Dec 13th as well as the Dec 14th Arui wa Anarchy Tour Final!
I am so, so looking forward to my trip to Japan after so many years 😀 I am hoping B-T will do more concerts while I am in Tokyo, so maybe I will be able to catch more then these two concerts 🙂
Meanwhile, since i had been working on lots and lots of custom orders involving bookcover charms, I made these Buck Tick themed ones for myself. I am not sure whether i will make them into bracelets or pendants yet……probably bracelets i think. Like a simple chain with one book cover charm hanging off it. i also made some of my Buck Tick themed bookcover charms with a half open Front Cover, so you actually get to peep into a page in the “book”.
I especially couldn’t resist adding the photo page where Atsushi posed with those giant butts, behind the Front Cover of the Rock and Read Cover! 😀
These are a heck of a lot of work to do, more then double the work on a regular book cover but I think they are worth it! They are made of photo paper, mylar, wood, paint, jewelry glue and layers and layers of varnish.
I certainly look forward to wearing these once I complete them. Though right now its back to more custom orders! I accepted orders for 10 custom bracelets, followed by a bulk order of 50 custom bookcover bracelets, another book cover themed custom bracelet, a Mad Hatter themed bracelet, then a Handbag/backpack Accessory as well as pendant necklace. I also sort of agreed to work on a couple more custom bracelets, a Star Trek and an alien themed one for another two regular clients, all within the next 4-6 weeks. I must be mad! 😉
But ah! for Buck Tick spending money and my looked forward trip to Tokyo, I guess its worth it!
