MCM London Comic Con

This huge pop culture event takes place next weekend with everything from TV & movie stars to cosplay and comics.

Nicolette will be covering the event for SCK so keep an eye on our Instagram for live updates.

Hyper Japan

Almost certainly the most kawaii event in Europe, Hyper Japan focuses on all things cute and Japanese. I’m going to the summer event in July for the first time and I’m so excited! It’s a chance to shop with all the best kawaii brands, watch Japanese musicians and dancers, play some games and take some fun classes (like learning to make cute curry rice!). Details on all performers are still being released but the exhibitor list is available and my wallet is going to take a real beating.

The Powerpuff Emporium

And I had to include this as it’s so kawaii! If you happen to be in London during 1-3 June, you can visit this amazing pop up shop dedicated to everyone’s favourite kawaii superheroes, The Powerpuff Girls. As well as things to buy, it will apparently include a make-up and nail bar, a punchbag area, science cafe and snake and rabbit petting! If you go, please send us some photos – even from the outside it looks brilliant.

Are you going to any kawaii events this year?

Patch Picks

kawaii patches - michaels

Recently I came across a selection of cute patches at Michael’s and had to grab a few for future projects. Patches are an easy way to upcycle clothing that you may have gotten bored of, find plain or in need of repair. They can also be a quick way to spruce up pillows around your house or framed and displayed like artwork.

Besides the cool patches I picked up at Michael’s (can you guess which ones I got? Hint: food!). Here are some of my patch picks for getting your DIY on.

dannybrito has a patch perfect to wear on Caturdays or any day to show your devotion to felines. Hey, maybe you can use the patch to mend something your kitty clawed up!

Cute Characters

Sanrio Character Ranking 2017

Posted on May 17, 2017 by

It’s that time of year again when Sanrio want to find out which characters are the most popular and they need your votes!

sanrio character ranking 2017

Last year’s results were a bit of a blow to Hello Kitty, who only just scraped into the top 5 while my personal favourite, Pompompurin, was crowned the winner. I expect this year Gudetama will be pushing higher but we’ll have to wait and see!

Shinkaizoku kawaii sanrio characters

You can choose from 100 characters including some very obscure ones I’ve never heard of before. I want to know more about Shinkaizoku (a blue octopus) and Kashiwankomochi (puppy mochi!).

sanrio shake de pon game

There’s also a little mobile game called Sanrio Shake de Pon. Just shake your phone to get a gashapon capsule containing a surprise character. You can then find out more about them or give them a vote.

You can vote once a day until June 11th and the winners will be announced on July 2nd. Get voting!

The pixel Pikachu pattern is top of my list along with the amazing Boo ghosts. I might be tempted to pick up a few more too as the t-shirts are usually pretty good value. You can preview the whole range at Uniqlo and they’ll be available worldwide from Thursday. Sign up to the Uniqlo mailing list for early access!
