Welcome to Dangos!

The inspiration for this shop came from two places. The first, was a bit of need. I had just graduated from high school and found myself needing a bit of extra cash for college.

Also, having be a regular attendee of Anime Expo, I researched specifically into cartoon and anime character designs. This led into the second place of inspiration. I remembered I watched a cute anime called Clannad which featured little Japanese donuts called Dangos.

From this simple pattern, I've been able to reproduce character designs ranging from Rilakkuma to Finn from Adventure Time to CS:GO models. Over time, I even decided to learn how to sew and make my own patterns. It made the process faster and more easily reproduced since I'm a one-person shop.

So here I am now!
