We’re all die hard kawaii fans here and I love to see what we actually end up bringing home. Here’s some of the cutest things the SCK Team couldn’t resist buying this year, or received as gifts.
Ghost Pin & Mirror
I didn’t have much money to spend this year (shout out to Pusheen Box for keeping me in new clothes!) so I was very happy to do a little trade with Ey Up Chuck after we connected on Instagram through our shared love of kawaii ghosts. I love my pin so much and Sarah also sent me a little pocket mirror – adorable! (Marceline)
My Stitches plushie from Darkdevils Designs is definitely the softest thing I’ve bought this year, though my cat is a little jealous! He’s perfect for hugs. (Gabriel)
Boba Tea Ita Bag
My favorite kawaii purchase would definitely have to be the boba tea ita bag from Stami Studios. I included it in a post I wrote about kawaii ita bags earlier this year, and it means so much more to me because I bought it using my earnings writing for SCK. It honestly still feels surreal getting to own something that used to just be in my wishlist. I also added my own kawaii style to it by adding a bunch of pins and keyrings. The bag always makes for a cute conversation starter, too! (Arlandyia)
My absolute favorite gift of the year was a ridiculously cute stuffy named Stabby. Stabby was created by an amazing artist I follow on Instagram – Madison Yang. Stabby is so soft and perfectly detailed, he even has a little backpack that opens! Adora was suspicious of Stabby at first but they were soon watching each others’ backs. (Nova)
One of my shopping highlights was buying a gachapon mystery box/bag from Rainbowholic Shop and Tofu Cute to compare for SCK. I especially loved the Capchara figures and I’ve displayed them all in my studio. (Marceline)
Of course over 2022 I have continued to grow my sticker collection! I got these hedgehog stickers at a market near where I live, from Kitty Martel. The colours make me smile, and naturally the moths are my favourite. (Gabriel)
I love the range of plushies from The Toydarian Toymaker in Galaxy’s Edge, so I came home from Walt Disney World with the cutest Yoda plush that’s made to look like it’s been handmade. (Emma)
