Kawaii Kon 2011, Saturday’s fun!

Kawaii Kon 2011 was an eventful saturday, as we went to an Axis Powers Hetalia gathering, then had lunch with the foods of the countries we cosplayed. Then, it was off to the artist alley to see what the happenings were. Finally, the afternoon was the Steampunk Tea Party! It was an afternoon of good friends and fine food and tea!

  9. Years and years of developing CNC and this guy shows us how useless it all was… Masterpieces, no doubt about it! :)

  10. wow… thats super cool. i wonder how much it would cost to make real people

  16. This man is amazing, it is such a skill to do all that, I’m mind blown at the gestures these marionettes can make, these are so well done. If I had the time, I would deffinately look into doing this sort of thing

  20. Thank you @mischiefmaricookies

    To answer your question, this video was shot using a Canon 5D, with Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 & 100mm f/2 lenses.

  21. I thought this was one of the most compelling of all of the Etsy videos I’ve seen so far. Geahk isn’t just a master puppet-maker; he’s an incredible storyteller. I’m curious: what kind of camera was used to shoot this? The images are beautiful.

  22. Great video. You really captured the experience of puppet making.

  23. This is the best puppetry video I’ve seen on youtube yet – beautiful work, Ghaek, I can’t wait to see this in person!

  24. One of my favorite memories of my childhood has always been going to see Fairy Tale Marionette Theatre at the mall in my home town. It absolutely enthralled me!!
    Lovely figures, beautiful! Thanks Etsy, for always keeping it inspiring!

  25. uuuu cool!! wow

  26. This is amazing!…what more can i say? I’m speechless:O

  27. Thanks for noticing! Etsy does indeed produce these videos. We try to find great stories about great artists and share them with all of you. I (Eric) produced this video about Geahk, but the workmanship, the designs, the locations, the stories, are all 100% his. Stay tuned –a new video every Tuesday!

  28. SPEACHLESS! omg…beautifull.

  29. That was beautiful….. It brought tears to my eyes

  30. i m speechless…so amazing…

  31. wow that was super impressive thanks for sharing such a beautiful art

  32. This was great! I’m so glad that Etsy is featuring artists that are out there actually BEING artists, being involved in groups and shows and events, and having actual opinions and visions about their work. The handmade is so much more pervasive and important than people just selling things for the sake of having others buy them.
