    Here's a thread to be updated once a year or so, when the count comes down from the mountain.

    Seems Yu~ki did a talk event last weekend, to promote (or with help from) a magazine(?)

    He talked to people and shook their hands and, according to every report I've come across on twitter, was lovely and looked great! Pictures taken from his twitter:

    He got loads of gifts from fans as well

    I was about to ask if this site is even up-to-date, seeing as those pieces have been listed there for quite a while... (Buuuut it could also just be the prices -- I've seen similar pieces listed on Etsy for $60 TOPS)

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if he just sells them at craft/farmer's markets along with his sculptures and other creations. Maybe he does have an actual physical store/booth in town?

    I saw one go for ¥4,000 on Mercari once, I kind of regret not buying it, but at the same time I don't really have any opportunities to wear such things these days.

    Those photos are great, I wish Yu~ki was doing the art direction and photography for Mana.

    honestly that'd be such a good collaboration. I think great material could come out of it.

    Is it just me or has he been a lot more present recently? Tweeting more and generally doing more stuff

    Not enough IMHO... But perhaps steering clear of social media save for announcements revolving around special events and major creative breakthroughs is what's best for his private life and well-being.

    An old bandmate, maybe? First person who came to thought for some reason was Tetsu (who seems most likely out of MM)... Or possibly someone from his first band, Ze:ro.

    Or maayyybeee...?

    (A nice thought, at least we'd know he's happy and living a normal life).

    Mana's nephews? Klaha's descendents, who knows...

    I mean, Yu~ki was how Klaha got introduced to Malice Mizer, right? Maybe not that big of a stretch after all :p but then again he seems SO off-grid that Mana couldn't find him for the reunion, damn.

    He pays Yu~ki hush-chocolate.

    But I worry... Mana has ways to make even his closest, dearest friends sing like a canary.

    It's been pretty cool seeing the mask stuff he's done. Reminds me of all that steampunk-themed stuff he released for MOL (except the mask covers are cooler imo)

    Yeah, he should be selling those instead of more Flavor Flav jewelry.

    To be fair, I don't think he's been in the bling-bidniss for some time, at least not online. I WOULD, however, like to see him maybe get into wigmaking again and selling those beauties ~

    He tweeted about acquiring a cosplay-wig design book back in March of last year...
    Could have sworn he had mentioned something in the thread (or in a retweet?) he started by making some of his own wigs in the MM days... But I may have misread a janky machine translation back then... Regardless the tweet still implies an interest in wigmaking and design~

    I /think/ he posted about it or mentioned it again somewhere but this was the main tweet (I assume) you were referring to~
