Etsy Discovery: MadAristocrat

Chibi, manga reader’s like myself are probably very familiar with the word.

Chibi is basically a Japanese word meaning “short” or “small child”. The meaning is not meant to be taken literal in a context of say someone being short but more of a “cute” person. Chibi style characters pop all over anime and manga and many commercials in Japan, it’s as cultural as the use of kawaii forms of advertisement.

People tend to enjoy creating fan art that depicts their favorite manga stars in Chibi form like L from Death Note or even famous movie characters like Harry Potter. This in fact is the lead in for my Etsy Discovery.

I recently came across an amazing seller creating Chibi necklace charms of the 10th and the 11th and I immediately had to purchase both for myself (and 10 for a friend).

Take a look if you’re a Doctor fan!

Aren’t they stupid cute? She got the hair spot on for 10 didn’t she?

She does a range of different Doctor Who themed charms as well as the typical kawaii line up of foods and fruits plus some odd geeky ones like Pokeballs, Pacman, Plants and Zombies, and and even Nyan Cat if you please! Her main line up includes a charm and a chain for around $18 but she also has charms only, rings, earrings and bracelets.

Love!

I paid $18 each for the Doctor Who goodies but after telling her about my site she kindly offered 15% Off to my readers for the entire month of September using promo code theMuse (just pop it into the note box during check out).

Shop it at www.etsy.com/shop/MadAristocrat

Hope you enjoy this Etsy Discovery as much as I did!

Disclaimer: I am not affilated with this seller. I purchased the charms featured in this post for full price and kindly asked the seller if she would like to extend a discount to readers.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    OMG! THose are adorable!!! I have to go check this out – does she have a Chris Eccleston Doctor? He’s still my fave of the “new” doctors…

    DAMN those are cute!! 😀

    • the Muse

      kim I loved Chris, he was too short lived…! She doesn’t but I imagine if you ask, maybe she’ll consider creating one, that’s the beauty of etsy ;D

    Not really a fan of this kind of jewelry (I have a general metal phobia because of the smell it develops on your skin) but these are cute and well made. What really stood out to me was that you asked and she agreed to giving a discount. This was so sweet of you to ask and equally wonderful that she agreed. IMO it’s the perfect example of good business practices.
