Muti Pop Up in Joburg!

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

Well the wave of muti minions that invaded Joburg went down a huge success. We sent out cryptic clues through our Facebook group: MissYucki’s Muti Mixing Team(if you are not a member you should join join join –> CLICK HERE) The Muti mins were beautifully made by Loren (you can read her cute and informative fashion blog here, she is our ultimate yucki dealer in JHB and our super fashionista. And Boy does she know what she’s talking about. You wont go wrong with her advice, or with her muti monsters. Check out these pics to see how cute they are. Did any of you yucki fiends manage to scoop one up for yourself? Do tell us if you were lucky enough to see where they were hidden!

Caravana de las Culturas

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

MissYucki has been invited to join the “Caravana de la Culturas”, an art and culture exchange programme which will travel from Barcelona, through Novi Sad, Belgrade, and onto Nis in Serbia. The Caravan is promoting cultural exchange through workshops, theatre, discussions, stories and art. Each person who travels on the bus to the different cities is volunteering to run different artistic activities promoting different cultures from around the world. MissYucki will be representing South Africa. She will be sharing stories from South Africa, and her travels all over the world. The caravana programme has been organised by Meri Ilic, the founder of NGO CasaEslava, which furthers bridging the gap between the different cultures living in Barcelona Spain. Spain like Johannesburg, is a veritable melting pot of people from all over the world, and creating a platform for interaction is sometimes difficult but always rewarding.

Pottering around in the Wonder Chamber

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

Well well, its been sometime since the last post. So let me tell you a little about what has been happening in the Wonder Chamber. We have some new work, custom toys, and a sneak peak at one of the muti monsters that will be hidden in New York.

This is a new digital drawing by Kat, MissYucki is concentrating hard, conducting magic with her little minion. It will soon be featured in our shop and in our products gallery. And boy did it inspire a whole lot of new ideas… there will surely be more in this series, in fact we’ve even come up with a name: The Council. It will explore the magic that conducts through us all when we are being overly creative. Ever had so many ideas that you cannot sleep for them buzzing about in your head and overflowing off the bed, well MissYucki and her minions have found a way to tap into these magical overflows. She’s very busy conducting magic right now…

We have just added this lovely baby meryucki to our Products gallery. It was especially commissioned, and Alba lovingly crafted, customized and hand-painted every detail. We hope that she is swimming around blowing bubbles in her new home. You can check out the product gallery to see more of our custom MissYucki dolls HERE! Don’t forget that we will happily design and make a MissYucki doll for you, email us and we can discuss whatever plan you may have… we can’t wait to infuse it with pageant power just for you.

And without further ado, check out this critter, he’s super delicious and has been hiding in our minds all summer. He was birthed the other day by Alba, and hopefully will soon be catching some rays in New York, in the dying days of summer. He’s still so white and new born, Oh he makes us shiver with delight! Can you imagine the lucky person who may find him hidden in the streets of NY? We hope he finds himself a good home. Remember to keep on the look out for our MissYucki Plush Treasure. This little love bomb could be yours. He will be out there in the next few weeks along with a bunch of other plush muti monsters, as part of our Muti Monster Pop up project. Free to take home, re-hide or present to your friends.

Thank you to those of you who have been leaving comments, it is oh so very nice to hear from you. Sorry if it takes us some time to filter them thru, we seem to be inundated with SPAM. grrrr indeed! Perhaps we shall mix up a potent batch of spam zapping muti to scare them off! :D Pageant Power!
