Hyper Japan Christmas Market 2015

Posted on December 1, 2015 by

There’s always lots to enjoy at Hyper Japan and I thought this was one of the best I’d attended. I’d never been to Tobacco Dock before and it seemed a strange choice for a winter market when it’s partly outdoors. Most of the stalls were set up in different closed off areas of the venue so you could wander between Culture, Fashion & Kawaii and Games & Anime, though each area seemed to have one stall with Alcapassos!

I spent quite a long time in the Fashion & Kawaii area as they had a lot of great stalls including gorgeous acrylic jewellery by Little Moose, cute designs by Baku Forest Studios and adorable illustrations by Hungry Design.

I wandered over to the Culture section and was thrilled to find Domo-kun at the NHK stall posing for photos. Obviously I couldn’t miss this chance to meet Domo and I also received a free printout of the photo and a Domo bag for downloading the NHK app.

Tofu Cute is my favourite shop so I was looking forward to checking out their stall! They had a pretty big area including an Amuse stall with Alcapassos of every size, Loppys, Woolys and hamsters.

Their Candy Festival allowed you to have a taste of different Japanese sweets before buying. Sadly there were no Japanese KitKats left but it was still fun!

Once I was hyped up on sugar, it was time for Ladybaby! I loved the video for ‘Nippon Manju‘ and was really excited to hear they were playing at Hyper Japan. They were pretty much the reason I decided to go this year and they certainly didn’t disappoint! It was a shame Rie couldn’t make it but Rei and Ladybeard put on an amazing performance and completely stole the show.

One last look round the stalls and it was time to leave, my bag now stuffed full with kawaii purchases. I had the best time at Hyper Japan and I’m looking forward to the next event in July.

Highlights: Ladybaby and meeting Domo! See more photos from the day on the SCK Instagram.

Keep Warm and Stay Cute

Posted on November 24, 2015 by

Now that they days are starting to get colder I often find myself reaching for boring black sweaters. But with some colourful clothes and accessories it’s possible to brighten up an otherwise dark wardrobe. Here are some ideas for a cute autumn or winter outfit.


This kawaii cat hood from J-List will keep both your ears and neck from freezing off, purrrfect!


Hoodies are great to layer up and can be hard to resist when they come shaped as Pusheen.

dreamy bows

At Dreamy Bows you can find several cute hooded jackets, like this bear hoodie from the Japanese brand Listen Flavor.


I use fingerless gloves to keep my hands warm during computer work and these crocheted bear gloves from Gitana Flip Flops are the cutest I’ve seen so far (^ω^). You can also find scarves and hats in Gitana’s Etsy shop.

adventure time

Oh my Glob there’s a Lady Rainicorn scarf from Adventure Time! It’s available through many shops such as Amazon, Forbidden Planet and


Birds are all the rage these days and have even found their way to earmuffs. Fly over to JList if you’d dare to wear these kawaii earmuffs.
