A Kewpie Feast

[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!


Happy Monday!
