I wasn’t as spend-happy this year at London MCM Comic Con, compared to last year when the tokidoki stall took all my money. I did make a few awesome purchases though.
Most of my items were from ARTBOX who had a great selection as usual. I was looking for a new coin purse as my current one was looking very shabby. I loved this panda Rilakkuma purse and can’t decide which side I like best!
I also wanted a new pass case and had my eye on these cute kitty ones for a while so just decided to go for it.
These plasters caught my eye with their hilarious designs. They look so kawaii until you notice the one with the brutal shark attack!
This light up Rilakkuma ice cream was from the gashapon section and it’s really bright!
I was on the hunt for another Neko Dango plush to add to my growing collection so was pleased to find one at Something Kawaii.
This kitty purse was really cute and they had quite a few different designs to choose from. You can see them all at Amazon Japan.
My fave purchase has to be my turquoise backpack from Tokyo Toys. It’s just perfect for displaying all my badges and you can customise it to make it entirely unique. Find out how to make one yourself.
I’ve been interested in trying out some cross stitch projects, so I was very happy when I ran across The Make Arcade on Etsy. The shop specializes in cross stitch kits, but also offers kits for embroidery and even accessories like brooches. Each kit comes with everything you need to complete the project except scissors, so there is no fussing with having the supplies you need for it. Here are a few of my favorite picks!
The Sweet Dreams embroidery kit would make a great baby shower gift, but in all honesty it’s so cute it would make an excellent addition to any kawaii bedroom.
If you’re a lover of all things unicorn like I am, the unicorn mini cross stitch kit should be right up your alley. I’m definitely going to try this one out at some point!
I also really adore penguins, so the penguin mini cross stitch kit caught my eye as well. It might only be June, but it would make a cute Christmas gift or ornament!
If winter is too far away for you to be thinking about penguins, there is a flamingo mini cross stitch kit perfect for a summer DIY or craft party.
They also carry other varieties of kits, such as this cute donut pin cushion kit. This looks like a really simple project that would be excellent practice for complete beginners to sewing!
If you’re looking for a new kit to try out, be sure to give The Make Arcade a visit!
June is my birthday month and it is stirring up so much childhood nostalgia. I grew up in the 1980s watching Saturday morning cartoons and collecting neon colored animal stickers. My picks below are a new take on what I loved as a kid and still love as an adult!
Em & Sprout’s Pee Wee and Chairry enamel pin set is something I recently bought myself! I loved watching Pee Wee’s Playhouse and thought that living there would be so cool!
Jem made me want to have brightly colored hair, glitter makeup and rockin’ clothes. Those things are easier than ever to have today but her magical changing earrings are another story – until now! Finally light up Jem earrings for those who are truly outrageous!
My love of animals started off at an early age thanks to Lisa Frank. Her bright colored kitties, puppies and bears made it on to everything I owned with her sticker line. Now I can get ready with her using a cruelty free makeup brush!
I am horrible with organization. Maybe this little storage container featuring all of my favorite 1980s Sanrio characters could help me with my clutter?
Rainbow Brite’s Sprite friends had me envious! I wanted fluffy magical creatures to hang out with me. Maybe surrounding myself with a plushie or two will add some magic into my life!
Saving the best for last is this Lydia Deetz print by Mizna Wada (I actually own it!). My sister and I watched Beetlejuice so many times as a kid I am surprised our VHS did not fall apart. Lydia still is true to my heart, my hobbies and my style!
As a fan of the Powerpuff Girls from way back, I was excited to hear that a pop up shop featuring all things Powerpuff would be open in London from 1st – 3rd June.
I went along nice and early on the Saturday morning as I thought it was likely to be pretty busy. I was really glad I did as I got to meet the Powerpuff Girls and get my photo taken with them – dream come true!
There was a short queue to get into the Emporium and once inside it was Powerpuff heaven with a make-up and nail bar, colouring wall and a Mojo Jojo punch bag!
I found the bunny and snake petting area where I held a snake and stroked Galaxy the bunny.
In the back was the Laboratory where we were shown some cool experiments and given free candyfloss on a light up rainbow wand.
There wasn’t a great deal of merchandise on sale: just keyrings of each of the girls and also the option to have a Powerpuff Yourself tote made for a bargainous £10. I obviously had to get one and can’t wait to see it when it’s delivered.
The whole event was really well done and everyone involved was very friendly and helpful. It was so much fun that I stayed for about 2 hours and when I left the queue was wrapped around the block! Check out our Facebook album for more photos.
Nic’s day out at the London pop up event

Tokyo Otaku Mode has recently put a new line of ceramics on it’s website. The cat teapot really stood out to me with its tail as a handle!
The teapot is part of a brand called ‘Three Cat Siblings‘, featuring 3 adorable kitties in different colours. This little family consist of Shiro, Mike and Kuro. While I’m usually fond of white cats (because of my pet), I think that Kuro might have won me over.
There’s a complete set of dinnerware, such as chopsticks, plates and mugs with the 3 feline siblings. I might have to save up, as all of these ceramics are equally cute.
Which one is your favourite?
