I really like supporting my favourite artists by purchasing their apparel so today I’ll be posting about Omocat! Nothing like showing your love through merchandise lol /cough fandoms/.
I first discovered her through Omori Boy and I’ve been a fan ever since. Her range of work covers fanart of games and anime/manga to her own character creations. I really like her style – she has that cute but gruesome style which I like lol, with vibrant and eye catching colours.
This is actually the second time I’ve bought from her from her estore, I own 2 other sweaters and an art print by her, but I got them last year when I wasn’t posting much
- 1st March – Placed for order
- 8th March – Received shipping notice
- 19th March – Package arrived
I paid via paypal and shipping cost me US$14.00. It was packaged like generic clothing orders? In that plastic bag thing lol.
I ordered 2 items:
The SHOTABOY tee is from Omocat’s webcomic, Pretty Boy which is based the relationship two guys with seemingly different personalities.
I think this is the first green top that I’ve bought and I like simple graphic tees which is why I chose it. There’s also a pink t-shirt from the series but I’m not really fond of pink clothing since I don’t think it really suits with what I’ve got in my wardrobe lol.
I bought this in extra small and these are the measurements listed for it on the site:
This is great to wear during the warmer temperatures and the material isn’t too thin. It’s also a 100% cotton American Apparel tee so it’s super comfy! I like wearing baggy unisex t-shirts so I thought the fit was fine.
The DEMONBOY Crewneck is a cute pastel sweater which I thought was perfect to adding some colour in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. My currently clothing obsession is buying sweaters so I’ve been getting a whole range of different types. And who can say no to buying something with a cute face like that?
I got this in small and the site describes it as being screen-printed on a 50% cotton 50% polyester crewneck sweater with these measurements:
I wish they sold the sweaters in XS as I prefer my clothing not to be too baggy, but otherwise it’s really warm and comfy to wear. I think I kinda look like a blob if I wear thicker clothing too baggy haha. The weather in Sydney doesn’t get too cold, so it’s fine to wear with a collar shirt underneath.
One thing which surprised me though is the material which the design is printed on with. I think it’s paint while the other sweaters I got previously was just with ink (sorry I don’t know my materials LOL). I just thought it was interesting because of the different texture
I’m happy with my purchases and definitely will keep buying from her range of apparel if I’m a fan of her future designs. I’ve seen some people complain about the cost but I’m a person who doesn’t really care about the price if I find a design I like. I’ve bought from another designer who started his own clothing line and he prices his clothing slightly more (but it’s due to local production costs) so I don’t think it’s expensive
And feel free to post any links in the comments to artists you follow online. I’m always interested to look at people’s artworks.
