Sometimes it feels like SCK is the last blog around, now that everyone has moved over to Youtube or social media or streaming. There’s still a few other sites writing about kawaii, crafts and more so here’s some recent posts you might enjoy, Make sure you follow them for more.
Mondo Mascots has a great Twitter account with ever more weird and kawaii mascots but I love the longer blog reports too. If you were wondering how mascots have been coping with quarantine, this new post has all the news, from wearing masks and promoting hand washing to the first new mascot of the pandemic, Covid-kun! Above is Shinjuku Awawa, a soap bubble superhero, who’s been very busy.
Moshi Moshi Nippon
Moshi Moshi Nippon is a great site for keeping up with all the kawaii news from Japan. That includes products, collaborations, character cafes, events, recipes, fashion and lots more. How cute are these new Hello Kitty hotel rooms in Tokyo?
If you love cute crafts and freebies, Handmade Charlotte post daily with fun DIYs, printables and recipes. It’s aimed at kids so everything is really easy and often uses supplies from around the house. This round up of animal inspired crafts includes these adorable little felt kitten clutches and some projects by kawaii craft queen Wild Olive.
While not a kawaii blog, Oh Joy! shares lots of colourful lifestyle ideas including home decor, crafts and recipes that are fun for all ages. This recent post on jewelry organizing projects has a clever hoop DIY for displaying your enamel pins and hair accessories.
Also not a kawaii blog, but I really enjoyed An Ode to Anime’s Best Cooking Scenes in Ghibli films at food blog Serious Eats. I’m so hungry now.
If you need more to read, have a look at our Super Cute Sites page for our favourite kawaii blogs, crafty sites and web comics. It hasn’t been updated this year yet though so apologies for any broken links.
