Kawaii Vinyl at New York Comic Con!

Sorry for the lack of posts! We were at this year’s New York Comic Con this year. We will be posting up all the great items we saw at the convention over the week. Posts will include some of our favorites and new finds. Stay tuned!

Rilakkuma Day at FAO Schwartz

If you’re unable to attend New York Comic Con this year and you’re in the New York City area, you HAVE to go to the first Rilakkuma Day in the United States. This Saturday FAO Schwarz will play host to an event that we can only imagine to be a day of cuteness. Here’s your chance to check out new Rilakkuma merchandise and meet the sleepy bear himself!

You can RSVP to the event through Facebook, however it’s open to the public. And if you can’t make it to the party be sure to come to FAO Schwarz to check out the Rilakkuma displays throughout the month of October.

“Eimi Takano’s Kawaii Oishii Art Show” At Japan LA

Opening today at Japan LA is what appears to be a super cute show of painting and plushes galore. Japan-based artist Eimi Takano will be having a pop-up shop containing several of her works. Takano will also be at attendance to meet and greet fans.

Be sure to stop by Japan LA to see this kawaii show. If you can’t attend and would like to see pieces, be sure to check the shop for available works and prices.

Flat Bonnie at GR2’s “The World Is Watching”

Yukari of Flat Bonnie was nice enough to send us pictures of some of the pieces that will be available at GR2 Giant Robot‘s “The World Is Watching” exhibit. There will be a total of twenty plush toys and many of them are one of a kind. Here’s a few that we wouldn’t mind getting a hold of:

The plushes are made from animal-friendly faux fix, fleece, or vinyl pleather which fits in perfectly with the Flat Bonnie’s ideology of bringing awareness to abandoned animals. Many of these were made especially for the show. Prices for Flat Bonnie plushes will range between $20 to $200 USD each.

Check out all the pieces at GR2 Giant Robot this weekend at the opening night of “The World Is Watching” exhibit. The show opens on October 4, 2014, and will be up until October 22, 2014. If you can’t make it to the show be sure to check out the Giant Robot website for available pieces.

“The World is Watching” at GR2 Giant Robot

Opening later this week at GR2 Giant Robot is a group art exhibit called “The World Is Watching,” The show will feature the works of Dan Goodsell (Mr Toast), Flat Bonnie, Tiffany Liu, Joey Chou, Kwanchai Moriya, and Japanese artist Ryuca. While there’s no description on what the show is about, we can assume that based on the artists featured it will be a show of some cute works. We expect any available pieces to go on sale on Giant Robot after opening night.
