Character-inspired Japanese confectionery series Tabemas has revealed that its next products will be Halloween-themed Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma sweets. They will go on sale at Lawson convenience stores across Japan (excluding Lawson Store 100 branches) on October 15, 2019.
These adorable confections are so cute it’s hard to choose where to even start eating them from! Both versions are wearing snug pumpkin hats.

The sweets are also made with a dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.
To keep with the theme of autumn, Rilakkuma is pumpkin pudding flavoured (which is his favourite treat) and Korilakkuma is maple flavoured.

Introducing the Kawaii Girls of the World | Kawaii Fashion Snap #4: Pink Paradise
Welcome to Episode 4 of Kawaii Fashion Snap where we get to know all about the kawaii girls of the world and their fashion. Each girl in this series has incorporated Japanese-like fashion into their wardrobe and turned it into something of their own.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at outfits that make use of the colour pink♡
Currently residing in Tokyo, Molly leaves a huge impression with her T-shirt that reads “ANTI WAR” in both English and Japanese. Her stylish use of cute pastel colours throughout accentuates this fashionable look, and her pink and purple hair combined with the thick sole trainers is a match made in heaven.
Molly is a big fan of the Japanese idol group CY8ER and has even gotten a photo with the group―as well as several chekki photos with Rinahamu, one of the members. Be sure to check out her Instagram ＠pink_morii
The Pinkmilkteahime has us wanting to dye our own hair blue because hers looks so cute. This co-ord may look simple at first with the single big pink t-shirt, but in fact the rest of her outfit and all of her accessories are uniformly blue, which makes her hair look even more beautiful. Even the blue and pink artwork in the background is in tune with her look.
On her Instagram, she posts not only more beautiful looks, but pictures of her latest purchases too―from snacks to stationery. Follow her on Instagram ＠pinkmilkteahime
Brodie’s baby pink jumper skirt co-ord is kawaii supreme. She is serving us regalia princess with her frilly blouse and jumper skirt which has sweet patterns on it. And if you look closely, her white phone case has a cute flower pattern design♡
If you’re look for some girly styles then we highly recommend following Brodie @vanillabwunny
Everything about the composition of this shot of Mimi Usagi can be described as cute. She has a cute character t-shirt on, and everything from her innerwear to her skirt is perfectly pink.
Her pink cheek makeup adds a glimmering allure and helps flaunt her clearly innate kawaii. We want to try shooting a look like she has in this photo too! Be sure to follow her ＠usagimimichu
Alexandra has gone for a sexy style here: her simple pink one piece is stunning and laces together flatteringly with those glittery shoes. And all of the items and accessories she has with her are pink, from the chekki camera in her hand to her shoulder bag♡
Alexandra’s Instagram feed is a treasure trove of exquisite and artistic looks. If fantasy takes your fancy, then make sure you follow her ＠sasha786x
If you’d like to feature in the next Kawaii Fashion Snap or know somebody that would, then follow us on Instagram and post at us with the hashtag #moshimoshiphoto. We hope you look forward to the next entry!
Rilakkuma Umbrella by Felissimo Can Be Used in Clear or Rainy Weather
19.June.2019 | FASHION
Felissimo released a new Rilakkuma-inspired beige-pink umbrella on their website on June 10.
The umbrella’s design is subtle and sophisticated. The outer rim is lined with a brown coloured lace reminiscent of Rilakkuma. It also has a handle made from high quality wood carved into Rilakkuma’s face. The umbrella also cuts 98% of UV rays meaning it can be used in both clear and rainy weather.
Its beige pink colour with brown lacing gives it a sophisticated feminine design.
Rilakkuma’s facial features on the handle were made using laser cutting and together with the frilly cotton rope tied to it give it a polished and refined look.
There is also a name tag on the umbrella with a nonchalant Rilakkuma logo printed on it.
There is also a separate bag you can purchase to put your umbrella in after it rains so you don’t get the floor wet if you go inside anywhere.
SHIBUYA109’s Purikura Photo Booth Shop moreru mignon Undergoes Rennovation
moreru mignon is a shop located in the department store SHIBUYA109 in Tokyo. It specialises in ‘purikura,’ a unique type of photo booth which lets you decorate your photos before printing them out. The shop just reopened on May 22 with all-new decor and has been moved to floor B2F of SHIBUYA109.
GIRLS’TREND Kenkyuusho of Japanese entertainment company FuRyu produced the new design of the shop. It is inspired by the bedroom of a girl who loves style and is just a smidgen selfish. The wall is plastered with pictures of cats based on female models, and poking out of the clothe-filled closet is a huge cat’s tail with a ribbon tied around it.
There is also a huge Instagrammable sofa bed and a display of food, milk and more.
For a limited time only, the purikura machine designs have cats posing as models on the side of them. Customers can also get their hands on a cute new shop card. The shop itself serves up all the “kawaii” a girl could need with its photogenic interior. It can be enjoyed for some simple purikura shots, for taking commemorative photos, and for just getting together with your girl friends.
And to celebrate the reopening, limited copies of a free magazine titled Nyaaruzu Trend (“Girly Cat Trends”) will be available at the shop from May 31. It includes a bonus copy of GIRLS’TREND, a free magazine published by FuRyu.
If you’re in Tokyo and in need of taking some kawaii photos then be sure to head to moreru mignon.

Character-inspired Japanese confectionery series Tabemas has revealed that its next products will be based on Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori. They will go on sale at Lawson convenience stores across Japan from May 21, 2019.

Their tiny hands, ears and facial features have all been carefully and delicately crafted to create some seriously adorable sweets which, as Tabemas describes all their products, are just too cute to eat.
Rilakkuma is filled with Japanese custard pudding flavoured bean paste while Kiiroitori is filled with chocolate flavoured bean paste.
