Sadly we can’t afford to buy all the kawaii we want, so Pocket Money Picks is a new series of posts about cute products that cost less than £5/$8 including shipping to at least one country. I had a look around Blippo first as they offer free shipping worldwide on all orders, however small. They had so many things, I’ve picked 5 favourites!

Even Alpacassos are in your budget – these mini plush are £4.22 each and are ready for bed with their sweet nightcaps.

Totoro fan? Pick up a keychain for £3 in one of 7 cute designs.

Devout Dolls Interview

Posted on May 7th 2015 by in Kawaii Artists


devout dolls

Sara Lanzillotta designs doll clothing and plush playthings that mix creepy and cute under the name Devout Dolls. Living in Seattle, WA she finds time to make wonderful things that will delight you.

devout dolls

If you could have a free Saturday morning and act like a kid again, what would your cereal choice be and the cartoons you would turn to?

To fully relive my childhood my cereal choice would have to be the ultra nutritious “Booberry” and I would need to watch “Muppet Babies”.

devout dolls

You design clothing for dolls (really cute clothing i should add) but if you could have a designer design something for you to wear: who would it be and why?
First off, thank you! I love making tiny doll clothes. I always wanted to be a fashion designer when I was younger so this is me living part of that dream. Boy, my designer choice for me though is a tough one. I think I’d have to go with Alexander McQueen. He was truly amazing!

devout dolls

What currently inspires you work?

I am constantly inspired by an endless amount of things! I love classic fairytales, nature and animals, geeky pop culture from TV to films to comics (Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes). I love Edward Gorey, he always had the perfect mix of darkness and humor, and of course, I’d have to say my almost 2 year old daughter who is just discovering her imagination and the power of play.

devout dolls

If you were a cupcake what flavor would you be?

My cupcake flavor would be vegan coconut with raspberry filling and a cream cheese coconut frosting, with a cherry on top!

Find more of Sara’s work in her Etsy shop or at Devout Dolls.

Mab Graves – Spectrum Exhibition + Interview

Posted on April 30th 2015 by in Events, Kawaii Artists


Mab Graves - Candy Hair Club - Pink

In a world of wide eyed girls with cool hair, shy smiles and a twinkle in their eye, Mab Graves perfectly blends in with the artwork she creates. From space aged beauties to candy colored bouffant girls, Graves takes us on a journey through her art on wings of a human eyed insect.

Cool, creepy, sad and sweet, her art has made me a fan from the beginning. She captures my heart with each girl who seems to pout, look sad but knows how to get what she wants. For those that are a fan of insects that crawl to big eyed dolls her art work will capture your heart like it has mine and take it to the grave.

Mab Graves - Cabinet of Curiosities Specimen No. 214

Mab Graves’ latest exhibition Spectrum is currently running at Auguste Clown Gallery in Melbourne and Mab kindly answered a few questions for SCK.

Your newest exhibition Spectrum is all about color so I have to ask right away do you have a favorite color?

Oh, that’s a really hard choice… it would have to be a tie between glitter and clear….or possibly rainbow…

When you are coming up with new ideas do you think of color first or as an afterthought based on the character you came up with?

It’s not really a one-step-two kind of process for me. When I have a new idea it’s comes to me fully formed – colors and all. Little things will change or get added as I’m working of course, but for the most part my pieces are conceived with all their hair and limbs. ^_^

Mab Graves - Moon Muffins

Did you introduce any new ideas, characters or concepts at Spectrum that fans of your work have not seen before?

Yes! Spectrum was all about being able to explore some new themes I hadn’t yet had a chance to express. Most notable probably was my Astro Girl in Caturn space series. I’ve been wanting to paint her for ages! I’m a huge fan of all thing retro 60’s Space Age. The Caturn space-cat-aliens were really fun and a big hit with my kitty loving fans too ^_<

Do pink haired girls have more fun?

YES.

How do you bring color into an otherwise drab day?

Generally it just comes with me ^_< I dress like a crazy babushka doll most of the time (layers of colors and patterns!) and I spray paint my shoes habitually when I’m in the mood for a new color. There is no color I’m shy of. I particularly like the “ugliest” colors – If you pair them with pink hair and a genuine smile it totally changes the way people see them.

Mab Graves - "Lois" Custom Neo Blythe doll

What are you working on next?

I’m currently doing research for my next series “Children of the Nephilim” – It will be a series of new paintings and sculptures with sherbet colored prehistoric landscapes, dinosaurs, mega fauna, and giant children – hopefully opening in November. I’m really excited!

* * *

spectrum

Spectrum is a new collection of paintings, illustrations, miniatures and sculptures inspired by the prism of Mab’s passions. This collection explores new themes, new shapes and plays with new spectrums of colour.  Go see it at Auguste Clown Gallery in Melbourne until May 3rd.

Thanks to Mab Graves and Auguste Clown Gallery.

Hummingmint

Posted on April 24th 2015 by in Cute Characters


hummingmint

Have you seen Sanrio’s newest character? It’s a cute deer called Hummingmint! She’s been available in Japan for a few months now, but it’s taking a while for products to show up on this side of the world. Luckily, eBay sellers are filling the gap if you can’t wait any longer for one of those adorable plushies. There’s also bags and bento sets and hopefully much more to come soon. Check out the cute little web game while you wait (it’s in Japanese, but super simple)
