This brings back fond memories on my 3 weeks duration Japan trip, i did a long ago. Hopping from town to town in trains or busses, I always made sure I bought a nice bento box to eat during the journey.
I think I saw a Blutsgeschwister dress just now.
There’s a page about ‘virtual bento shopping’ on justbento.com, I’ll link to it in a later post… too dangerous to look at right now…
Haha, the style is kind of recognisable. :D
Yay, Bento! I’ve made those a couple of times, though mostly snack bentos.
Bentos truly are great, they’re both pretty, tasty (well, if done right) and easy to vary. I also like to dye ingredients like rice and sponge cakes for a more colourful bento :3
It’s so tempting to stuff them with cheese and cakes and the like! D: Must refrain from making snack boxes… must… make… healthier food! But most importantly yummy food.
Sponge cakes are a good idea! The ones I get are usually pink or pandan green anyway. And they’ll stay moist so they can go in the same box as the fruit. Nice, thanks!
My snack bentos are mostly for tea parties and such, so I don’t mind them being unhealthy ^_^
I have a pic of my favorite snack bento, if you want to see?
It’s got a deep sea theme, with dyed sponge cake as the background, and rum-raisin toffee that pirates like+c-vitamin foods that pirates don’t get to eat very often >:3
And little octopi candies!
Oh dear, that’s really a snack bento. So unhealthy… but cute! XD
Aha! DeviantArt! *backtrack* *search* *found* Hmm, ‘Eat Me’ cookies look good… can’t stop laughing at the evil octopi…………. oh god they’re evil….. hahahahahahahaha XD
I made that to show to the people at the anime screenings I go to, and since then, they somehow got the idea that I’m an expert on all sorts of Japanese cooking o__O well after that and the horrible onigiri that even the vegetarians ate without noticing that they contained tuna.
So you sneaked a peek at the other bentos as well? XD yeah, the “Eat Me”-cookies were cute, I was proud of that. I made that for a lolita meetup where someone turned up in a skirt with cookie prints exactly like them! We were like “OMG, pose with the cookies! So cute together! Kawaii desu!!!”
Evil octopi were unnecessarily and unvoluntarily evil-looking, but it sort of fit, since I ate that bento at a graveyard XD
Nooo! Please don’t go “Kawaii desu” in public, argh. XD (Of course you have the freedom to do so, I just have bad experiences being drowned out by squealing teenage girls who didn’t know any Japanese except for that…) Sounds like you did well on impressing them! And I guess the graveyard was for a photo shoot…
Heh, well, if you gather 20 lolitas in one place and feed them enough sugar, there’s always at least a few who’re going to go “kawaii!” over something. Sad fact of life XD
The graveyard just happened to be the only park-like place to have a picnic in that neighborhood. I planned to eat outdoors, just forgot to plan exactly WHERE. Then the middle-of-a-busy-street miniature graveyard presented itself as a nice lunch-place :3
Ah! Original place to have a picnic, haha. I’m sure it made the place look less gloomy.
