Hyper Japan Christmas 2018 Highlights

Posted on


Even though we’d just come back from Japan I couldn’t resist a visit to Hyper Japan for more kawaii. I sadly didn’t manage to meet Gloomy Bear in the end but me and Koguma-chan still had lots of fun!

Making this adorable fluffy bunny was so much fun and I’m so happy with how it turned out! Ok maybe it could do with a haircut but it’s still super cute!

Browsing all the stalls

Even if I don’t buy much I love to see all the cute new items on everyone’s stalls. I did manage a few purchases from small independent designers such as our faves The Fuzzballs who have an awesome new Christmas range and Geri Draws Japan with her wonderful illustrations. I love my Fuji-san pin!

Dressing up

Hyper Japan always gives me a good excuse to wear some kawaii fashions and my outfit included purchases from our Japan trip including a Rilakkuma sweatshirt, ‘Help’ bag from Asoko customised with badges from B-Side Label and a kawaii Jaws plushie, Jaws bracelet and a Pikachu scarf.

It was really cool to meet the designer of this quirky character, Shinichiro Kitai, and he even signed the Mini-Tofu figurine I bought.

Koguma loved the Sanrio wall at the ARTBOX stall as he is missing Japan and he felt right at home with all the cute characters. He was a bit freaked out by the giant Koguma head cushion though!
