Bento2014#Oct30~Hello Kitty Ghosts

Tomorrow is Halloween Day celebration at her school and usually no bento for every Friday so this will be my final Halloween 2014 bento ^_^ Last year my daughter dressed up as fairy but this year she will dressed up as Pumpkin Witch Costume (Bought it during my Bangkok Trip) Pretty sure she can't wait for tomorrow and I need to do some make up for her since the school organize Halloween Costume Contest every year. 
Well, today's bento I made Hello Kitty Ghosts with vampire wings??? Last year I did Hello Kitty Ghost Family (click HERE) so this round just combine with vampire wings/horns after all Hello Kitty always look cute right? Haha...
Here's the close up Hello Kitty Ghost with innocent look :D Freehand scissor cut out the nori details. I shape the rice into ghost using cling wrap. The red horns made from crabstick.
Repeat the methods and I just changed the eyes expression *wink* I know my daughter still prefers cute Halloween theme ^_^ The bat nori, I use bat puncher. The rest freehand scissor cut.
For side dishes have dark sweet sauce drumette, pea sprouts (bottom), sauce (Hello Kitty container), tamagoyaki (roll into triangle shape and mixed with some blue pea flower juice to make it green) and watermelon (use Hello Kitty cookie cutter)
Simple and kawaii Halloween bento ^_^ I hope you enjoy reading and happy mid weekend.

Bento2014#Oct09~Hello Kitty dressup as Totoro

Last night did Hello Kitty needle felted character (only the head) to match my today's bento theme. I dressed up Hello Kitty as Totoro character ^_^ Nowadays my daughter requested not too much of dishes or a lot for her lunchbox. Most of her friends taking school meal sets and the school separated sitting area for homecooked students. So she prefers to quickly finished her foods then join with her friends :) I asked her whether she wants to take school meal sets instead of homecooked? I felt blessed to hear words from her that she still wants cute bento for her lunchbox in school. Wait for few more years I think can pack her normal bento (non kyaraben) same as my son bento. I actually still prefer let my kids bring homecooked food course the school meal set price was quite costly for a month. 
Here's the close up Hello Kitty in Totoro costume ^_^ As usual, mix the rice with black sesame powder for Totoro and boiled egg (white) for body. All nori details I spread some mayonnaise to stick on. The Hello Kitty nose made from eggsheet (used up my balance eggsheet).

For side dishes contain ginger chicken stew, sauce at the small container and some sweet pea ^_^

I hope you like my today's dressed up Hello Kitty. Happy Thursday!

Full details for the CuteZCute cutter can be found after my sharing post.  I tried to made two different eggsheet. One is the original eggsheet for yellow colour and the other brown eggsheet mix with dark sweet sauce. As you can see that my eggsheet top part was shinny due to I don't turn over the eggsheet.

Here is the close up Tiger Cuddle Palz and I create on my own a mini tiger ^_^ The pink colour is kamaboko. I mixed the rice with fuirkake then pour to the lunchbox. Next arrange the broccoli, chicken drumette, fresh button mushroom and lastly add the Tiger eggsheet on top.
