Kuromi-chan & My Melo Bento


Kuromi is my new favorite Sanrio character, I mean seriously, how can you not love the leader of a tricycle gang?! Plus she is just so cute. And I think deep down, she just wants to be liked :)
She is made with rice which I shaped into a ball with my hands, slightly wet w/ water, otherwise the rice sticks. I cut the nori to fit her face and cut the eyes out freehand. The mouth was done using my nori punch. Her nose and skull are dyed hard boiled egg (and nori)
My Melo is a hard boiled egg made using an egg mold, and she has nori details. Her nose and bow are made with food markers. Broccoli and homemade general tso's chicken on the top, and a strawberry on the bottom. The flowers on the top are baby corn, sliced thin.
You can sorta see the new kinkachu bag I made to match the new kuromi bento box I ordered last week. (yay it should be here next week!)
Tell me the truth, is it lame to love a cartoon character at 31 years of age?
I didn't think so either...

I wouldn't worry about it, it's perfectly acceptable to love cartoon characters at any age!! Especially if you just like them because they're cute, not because they're like.. you know.. lust-able and whatnot lol. Your bento are so cute!!!

LOL! No it is not lame to love a cartoon character. I just discovered Kuromi a couple of weeks ago and she is too cute for words. A Goth bunny! Come on! :-)

I hope it's not lame, I'm 35 and I have quite a long list of cartoon characters that I adore! (Marvin the Martian is my favourite, though I haven't found any good Bento gear with him on it.... or ANY Bento gear with him on it, for that matter!)
Kuromi is my oldest daughter's absolute favourite, we just discovered her a few weeks ago and she is completely smitten.
