As promised, this post is going to be about all the kawaiiness that I received in the mail last Friday! It was amazing to get home from a busy week, after attending so many group meetings and stressing over finishing my assignments to find these packages of happiness waiting for me!
I didn't take a picture of the original packages since I was too excited to start ripping them open to get to the goodies. Instead, I just shoved them all into the original bag that some of them came in from one of the packages.
Here are the adorable Year of the Dragon Kapibarasan plushies. I was really happy to be able to find them! Being born the year of the dragon (and a huge fan of Kapibarasan), I obviously knew I had to get my hands of them when I found out that they were coming out with dragon-themed plushies. The keychains were bigger than that I thought and soo adorable! I can't tell which one is my favourite because they're all too cute in their own way (except the chick...).
Before I continue any further, I have to tell you about Obi. He's such a funny dog, whenever I take pictures of my kawaii, he's always following me and watching me. He always want to snatch one of my plushies in hopes that I don't notice but I've learnt my lesson so I keep an eye on him. I also think it's because he loves getting his picture taken so whenever he seems me holding a camera, he runs up to me. From the moment we brought him home, he was never camera shy!
Today was no different, he was following me and eyeing my plush. I thought it was so funny and cute, that I took snapshots of him trying to steal my plush but because he's a good dog, he resists, which leads to him either staring at the plush or nudging it.
Look at these adorable little bunnies! I didn't know they existed until a month ago when I saw a friend post pictures of them. When I found out that they were called, "Usadarumas," I obsessively searched for them (in the only way that I knew how, googling like crazy). I found a few from a seller in Bangkok but she was selling it for way too much. Even then, I almost bought them. But luckily, my seller from Japan was able to find some for me at a reasonable price.
My seller was also able to find me a big Usadaruma plush! I was really happy with this one because I didn't expect it to be wearing an adorable little furry hat! It makes it more special than the regular plain ones, although I would like to get a plain one too one day.
This adorable Tuxedo Sam was first seen at the Sanrio.com website (I browse it when I'm bored. It's no wonder I'm having a hard time saving money). Although I'm not a huge fan of sanrio, there are some adorable plush there occasionally. My favourite characters from Sanrio are Cinnamoroll, Pom Pom Purin and Tuxedo Sam. It's not surprising that I really wanted this when I saw it. Although the price of the plush itself was reasonable, once you factored in shipping, it definitely wasn't. But because I'm persistent, I was able to get this little cutie for a reasonable price (I asked one of my flickr friends if she could find it for me and then ship it to me). If only I was as hardworking in my studies as my kawaii quests.
My last plush is a smaller pink usawan plush. It's really soft and the material is similar to a really soft towel but a lot of lint and stuff get stuck to it really easily. I have a larger black one and it was really annoying since I had to pick off the fluff off it all the time.
