Our Favourite Kawaii Stalls at Hyper Japan

Posted on July 24, 2017 by

While it’s great to see all the big name kawaii brands and shops at Hyper Japan, I also loved being able to check out stalls by independent makers and shops. Here’s a few of our favourites that you can buy from online too.

lovejojo at hyper japan

Love Jojo

LoveJojo‘s wall of giant Amuse plush was one of the cutest sights at Hyper Japan with koalas, hamsters and puppies alongside the more familiar Alpacasso and Loppy bunnies. They only sell authentic plush so it’s a great place to shop for UK Amuse fans – they have all prices and sizes to suit your budget plus some kawaii stationery and lucky bags too.

fuzzballs at hyper japan

Fuzzballs

The Fuzzballs stall was so busy I didn’t get a chance to chat but they had lots of cute new things! Most exciting are these super kawaii skater dresses, which are online now. There was also a huge new range of notepads and mini memo pads, as well as the mugs and travel passes we reviewed recently.

cherry abuku at hyper japan

Cherry Abuku

Cherry Abuku‘s plush were irresistible and it was hard not to pick them all up and squeeze them! Hyper Japan seems to have cleaned them out but keep an eye on their Etsy shop for new additions soon.

suki panda at hyper japan

Suki Panda

I love a shop with a theme and kawaii pandas is a great one! Suki Panda is wall to wall panda cuteness and I especially loved the fluffy baseball hats. They’re working hard on a web shop now so follow their Facebook page for updates on that.

box monster at hyper japan

Box Monster

There was a magical theme to Box Monster‘s stall with cute Alice in Wonderland, unicorn and Ghibli themed products. Check out their shop for pins, tote bags, prints, plush and more.

frillypops at hyper japan

Frilly Pops

And finally, a little piece of rainbow kawaii from Frilly Pops. As well as these cute stickers, their Etsy shop has patches, enamel pins and some super sweet pompom charms.

I hope you’ve discovered something new to love. Big thanks to all the kawaii stall holders we chatted to at Hyper Japan – hope to see you again sometime soon! You can see all our Hyper Japan photos in the Facebook album below.

Kawaii Crafts Inspiration on Instagram

Posted on July 21, 2017 by

Whether you fancy yourself a crafter or not, it’s always fun to find cute new craft accounts to follow. I’m always on the lookout for new works to inspire myself, especially when I’m in an artistic rut. Fortunately, Instagram is the ideal place for discovering new creative content. That being said, I just recently went on a massive IG following spree, so today I’d like to share with you 5 of my current favorites!

@milkybon

Milkybon posts both resin and clay creations, so her feed has a great variety to browse through. I always find her unique pieces and pretty choice of color palettes very inspiring to look at!

Saori (saori_surunnuage) is very popular in the Japanese craft community for her undeniably cute and original needle felt accessories, and it isn’t hard to see why. She also makes and shares resin creations on her account.

Twin sisters Chiselu and Masayoshi share chicchi_chimi, where they post their cute embroidery creations. I love the mori kei vibe of their feed, and one of my lifetime goals is to be as talented with embroidery as they are!
