Most Wanted: Cute Decole Dehumidifier

Posted on March 13, 2018 by

I’ve collected quite some Decole kitchenware and decorations over the years. Looking at them always brings a smile to my face.

I love it when they can actually be used, such as my Decole magnets and mugs. Lately I spotted these cute Decole dehumidifiers that I can certainly put to good use.

They come in several shapes and sizes, ranging from animals to cacti. Surprisingly – being a cat person – the Decole sleeping dog dehumidifier is my favorite.

From what I came to understand you can use them in humid areas or smelly places. Inside the mascot there’s Silica Gel that absorbs moisture. When the mascot has done its job you can warm it in the microwave to use it again, which makes this ceramic pet eco-friendly.

The Decole Karatto Mascots are for sale at Strapya World and Tokyo Otaku Mode. Both shops are the best places to look for cute Decole items!

Easter Bunny Jewellery by Pony People x I Love Crafty

Posted on March 12, 2018 by

If you love bunnies and pastel colours, check out the new limited edition Easter Bunny jewellery collection from Pony People and I Love Crafty!

I’m not sure there’s anything cuter than chubby bunnies with pom pom tails! The collection includes brooches, necklaces and earrings, all in colourful pastels that are perfect for springtime.

The brooches are definitely my favourite, though it’s too difficult to pick a colour. The packaging is so cute too – you get a free sticker and Easter egg with every purchase.

I kind of wish I had pierced ears so I could wear these earrings. I love the tiny pom poms.

As with all their collaborations, the Easter Bunny jewellery is already selling out fast so you’ll have to be quick. These necklaces are already gone but hopefully they’ll make some more. You can follow I Love Crafty and Pony People on Instagram for updates.

Rilakkuma & Sumikko Gurashi Coloring Books Review

Posted on March 9, 2018 by

If you’ve been waiting for more kawaii character coloring books, I have great news: the Rilakkuma & Sumikko Gurashi coloring books now exist!

Rilakkuma & Sumikko Gurashi Coloring Books Review

The newest releases from the Japanese artist Inko Kotoriyama, they give you coloring lessons as well as a bunch of cute images to color. I preordered these books as soon as the listings appeared Amazon Japan, and I knew that I had to review them for SCK!

Rilakkuma & Sumikko Gurashi Coloring Books Review

Starting off, both books have a convenient supply walkthrough that shows you art supply options like colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastels, and the like. These pages include the results of each art supply so that you know what to expect visually, and a universal palette to help guide you with the proper colors to use for each character.

They then provide cute character profile pages with cute information like short bios, hobbies, favorites, skills, and personality types. On these pages you can practice coloring each character using the previously mentioned palette to choose your colors.

Several coloring lessons follow, each one taking advantage of different supplies and color techniques to illustrate how to color a few of the pages as the artist did. These pages are fairly easy to figure out without reading the instructions. (Pro tip: if you have a smart phone, you can download the Google Translate app to take photos of the text, and it will translate it for you!)

Then you have the most exciting part: all the cute images! There are plenty to color in each book. There are plenty of detailed images to keep you busy, but there are also pages that are less detail-heavy if you prefer something simple.

Sumikko Gurashi Coloring Books Review

The line art varies from image to image, and can be thin or thick. The Sumikko Gurashi book is just as cute!

Rilakkuma Coloring Books Review

Both books also include a few post cards to color and cut out at the back, which would be cute to give away or even use in a planner (which is what I plan to do!)

Sumikko Gurashi Coloring Books Review

The paper is thick and high quality, so you can use a wide variety of art supplies, including water color. Even markers should work; always test them on an unimportant page to be safe, though.

Rilakkuma Coloring Books Review

Some of the images do stretch into the spine; however, the book does flatten relatively easily, so this is a very minor infraction. It also has glue binding, which means you have the option of cutting them with an Xacto knife to remove them from the book if you choose.

Rilakkuma & Sumikko Gurashi Coloring Books Review

You can purchase both the Rilakkuma and Sumikko Gurashi versions from Amazon Japan; if you enjoy coloring, these books are a must-have! My only hope is that they continue this series with more San-X characters.
