As of the 5th of October, 2006, Photokicho will close indefinately. It's been fun folks.
Hey, I'm one of the webmistresses at Photokicho
My designs are listed under mamapyon's account - so I do contribute. I make up the images, and then she codes everything... its a fantastic combination - that way I don't have to touch HTML *shudder*... anyways, I hope you enjoy our designs!
Photokicho is a website for the blogskin user, the website builder, the photoshop beginner, and anybody who loves anime and manga. :D Come visit us sometime. If you want to leave us a message, email us (above).
We create custom blog designs for order as well.
I know that our whole account error thing caused a lot of problems, but still, for clarification, the skins are created by both Mamaypon and myself, and all of our older skins are located in her account. Together, Photokicho have created a LOT of skins... but not all of them have made it to Blogskins. We're celebrating around 50 skins now, and so far, 10 of them have made it to Myles' SOTD. They are listed below.
SKINS OF THE DAY
I'd like to think that this is the skin that made Photokicho famous. It's still
one of our most used designs. It uses a simple moon-phase navigation and is
pretty easy to organise. The layout is sliced.

It's soft colours has made it a very popular design.

Old-style Photokicho... we hadn't done one of these in ages, but we're so glad

Won't You be My Valentine
We made this for the Valentine Day competition (but being the terrible person
that I am, I forgot to put up the link... until really late. This is also
old-style photokicho, as we juse the AvH brushes, and a soft pink tone. We
really like the pink! It's a break from our blue.

images! Well at least we had fun doing it, and Hopefully, you had fun viewing it.
