Sneak Peek: Podgypanda

I am lucky enough to be friends with the talented and kind Podgypanda of New Zealand and he’s been sweet enough to sneak us a little peek at a sculpt of one of his Geeks of Nature – a concept featured at his solo show at Nation Toys + Tees in Calgary, Canada in July of this year.

This lil’ lady is Betty Yeti, a kind and mischevious Yeti, who likes hangin’ with her best buddies Snowpal and her cute neighbor, Bigfoot Bryan. I’m loving her hair and glasses! Be ready to check out all six of the Geeks of Nature in 2D and 3D form at his solo show. And if you’re in NZ, come see Podgypanda at the Armageddon Expo in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington!

New Boutique in Auckland

My good friend Vicki is opening a fashion boutique in Midtown Auckland! I met Vicki at her last boutique, Circle Fashion, off of High Street during my bathroom breaks at the now defunct Toy Kong. We struck up a conversation about tokidoki art toys and soon after she learned my affinity for bows and ruffles on pretty dresses. Her fashion taste is second to none. She shut up shop in the Canterbury Arcade and headed for Europe, where she tracked down some of the hottest fashions around, which she’s brought back to share with you. She’s also a big supporter of New Zealand-made clothing and introduced me to the owner of Oui Boutique on K’Road, Louise, whose designs are beautiful and versatile.

Vicki’s new boutique has a very magical name, The White Forest and is guaranteed to pull all the fashion punches. Ladies, get yourself over there and tell Vicki that Team Sweet sent you. ;)
