|[Obento Kewpie with Rement Japanese food miniatures]|
It's not exactly Miniature Monday but Japanese food miniatures here we go...dolly style! While I was in Japan I picked up this do-it-yourself kit where I get to dress up a small Kewpie doll to look like a type of food that you would find in a bento box. I almost forgot about it until yesterday, when I was feeling artsy! Here's a photo collage of how I made it:
The kit is called "Obento Kewpie". She is dressed as a Japanese shuumai. I'm going to assume that the bottle she's holding is supposed to be soy sauce. Her outfit is not removable and is held together by a combination of my almost-non-existent sewing skill and the power of glue. You just gotta love glue at times like this!
I have one more of these babies that is waiting to be dressed as a shake (sha-keh) or salmon in english. I kinda wish I had gotten a few others. They're quite fun to make. And Kewpies are soooo cute!
