Farewell, Friends!

Posted on August 29, 2014 by

And so, the time has come for me to say goodbye to all my kawaii friends, as I hang up my panda suit after one last outing. It’s been an enjoyable few years – we’ve seen some crazy stuff in our time, including Hello Kitty engine oil and those hideous paper eyelashes!

We’ve had some high spots –  being drawn by Maqaroon was really cool! I’ve also loved finding so many cool designers and characters out there. One of my very favourite things I’ve written about is the wonderful wooden work of Graphic Spaces:

So classically cute! And obviously being guest curators on Etsy was pretty cool, too. Really, there have been so many ace discoveries, it’s hard to fit them all in, but of course, my very favourite thing about having been one half of the UK’s finest kawaii site is that I got to do it all with one of my bestest friends.

We came up with the idea back when I was living in Bangkok all those years ago, and dreamt of sharing our love of all things cute with the world. We did a lot of our planning in the rabbit-adorned pool here. And, of course, it’s also where we met our friend/nemesis, Monsieur Le Bun!

Isn’t it idyllic? Those days we spent planning (and shopping!) were ones to remember forever and I’m so glad we did it. Bunny/Mar-c is one of the most generous and quietly supportive pals you could ever want and I’m very lucky! Here we are in real-life looking like we might expire from the extreme heat in Thailand:

And we are immortalised forever as Bunny and Panda!

Now, I will go back to my real-life job of shouting at the television, like my number-one favourite kawaii character of all time, Domo-kun…
