Photographer and events insights with Kawaii B


Hey every cutie, so as you know am doing my photography right? well its not the only project am working on this year, this year am also taking on a new adventure of being apart of Kawaii  Yay!
 Last year I didn't make as many events as I wanted and well it was not something I was focused on at the time nor was my Camera the best so ...


Am pleased to say I will be working along side Kawaii-B . A Online Kawaii hub of information on Kawaii topics based in the UK! It's a Great Idea and very exciting to work on!
Kawaii- B has been Born!

I sorta found myself among like minded girls who were in a Facebook group that loved the idea of a online centre to bring like minded Kawaii fan's together.We thought this would be super helpful for others new to the kawaii culture , to bring existing Kawaii fans together like a community  and help each other out explore all the levels and even fashions of kawaii .

 It was not long for a team of us to volunteer and put forward our own skills to contribute to the Facebook Page, Group, Blogs and Website. Myself I have put forward my own Kawaii Time interviews, and helped out with information and my new love of photography. The Team has many Reviewers, Interviewers, Spokes persons, Reporters and Coverage Reporters. My primary role would be Photography and covering any events that am attending.
It will be super fun ne!

The Web site is now online found here
You can find the rest of the links too

Kawaii Rainbow times.

Hey every Cutie!
Cute pillows!
How are you all doing!?

I wanted to share with you some new Kawaii items I have bought of late, Once again I caved in and bought some cute jewellery items form Enji! *waves*

I love her jewellery so much, its so original and Kawaii! So I was playing about with new things I have learnt with my camera and got some super Kawaii shots with the jewellery nyaa! I hope you like them.

So I also got myself some cute pillows to use in my room they are rainbow themed. They are very lovely and soft.  One is a Rainbow shape and the other 2 are heart shape with Rainbow colour's on them. Very cute hehe I also added my san-x bear pillows in the photo for added cute-ness.  They look very cute in my spare room which I have been working on .
 Now I have made the choice that it will be my 'Kawaii room'' A place I can escape too. But will be doubled up as my *Drum roll* Photography studio room!!! It was meant to be the Guest/ Rilakkuma room but things change haha, It will still be a Guest room too though.
With re painting items white and putting up white shelves to keep the room light and airy for shooting with the (pop up) Back sheet frame with drop, lights, kit ect. I will be needing this, for the next coming months for my photography projects.

Kawaii Ham - Ham loves Enji!


So  I have been setting up my Kawaii and cute items up on the shelves in the room and because I repainted the book shelf there is some kawaii on that too! Yay.
 I have my cute anime and vocailoid figures up on the shelf easy for me to get hold of them as I like doing toy photography, I also have a few smaller plush dolls on this shelf   I have a few Hello Kitty's and Mimmy's here too. As well as a couple of Cat themed things. I do like my Cats. Oh and of course dont go forgetting about my Lucky Cat and Domo too! Am also a Momiji Fan, I have been for ages and I felt like my dolls were not getting much love in the Kitchen so I moved them into the spare room to be admired instead. 

Also this month I caved in - 3 months into this year and I failed. I bought something Hello Kitty
Yep, I was trying to get at least half way through the year and not buy anything Kitty..whoops!
How ever I really happy with the new bag I got. Its bright and a great size - Ah  I just love it! So I have been using it a bit more than my other bags and every time I have used it, I have had a great response and comment on my bag. From '' OH MY LOVE THAT BAG'' to''Wow that is a cute bag'' from other Mummy's at playgroup. Who also admire my other ''funky'' as they say bags and even the staff and customers at the local shop comment on my bags. Which then they were left drooling over my purse too. I some times wonder if these folks have never seen cute before and maybe like to see more of it appearing. hehe its nice to get positive reactions- regardless.
As I  said in the past month or so am going to many events, in April so I should be able to blog lots more. If there is any thing you want me to cover or take photo's of ( keep it clean.) I would like to hear your suggestions!
I hope to put up a post soon of my Toy Photography yay! so watch this space.
Till later <3 Tartan.

Its all about Kawaii!

Hi~Hi Kawaii Lovers,I hope you are all well and keeping super cute!
Myself  I have  been looking for a cute necklace with ''Kawaii '' on it while I have been x-mas shopping,and
I am soo bad for saying Kawaii out loud in places.Unless you know what it means I get lots of Funny looks in shops and the kids sections in too.
So I thought it was only fitting to get a necklace because I love ''Kawaii''.
I spoke to a few companies about a custom necklace but they were all to busy I all most gave up but House of Wonder land came to save me!
I was so happy,though it took a while to get the right fount to work with the word 'Kawaii' so it looked like 'Kawaii' rather than 'KawaII' and then asked if I could have a purple shade and left the rest up to the magical lady at the House of wonderland and OMG!



ITS STUNNING!
I also got the 'Harajuku' necklace a week before,cause I thought well if I dont get a Kawaii one I will have Harajuku,Hanging by my heart.(A place I so want to visit!)
So here is a few Photos ^^



My Harajuku Necklace

So We are nearing the end of the month,I have been selling off some of my Lolita and my Wigs as I really do not like ones with Bangs/Fridges and Lolita is not practical for me,Even though,I do adore it all .

I also need the money to be put towards a new camera and for chibi bean's xmas and birthday.
I have started my shopping list and can say I have one or 2 things ticked off.

Kimich Kawaii!



  Have you checked out Kimchi Kawaii?
I found them in a facebook group where there is a bunch of Kawaii creative artists.So I thought it would be nice to introduce you to Kimchi Kawaii's Owner.

Tell us a little about your self :
''I've been running Kimchi Kawaii for 4 years now. Started it off with mostly my designs and then branched out into crafted items which caused me to start a sub brand called Frosted Fleur de Lis. Cause you know, working a full time job and doing a side business for one brand wasn't enough!
I asked Kimich kawaii a few questions about their business adventures





There is a range of Goodies that Kimchi kawaii have to offer!


How cute is this bat...I may have bought it...
*SQWEEE!*

Jewellery, Charms and Kawaii Accessories

Tartan meets Kimich Kawaii Interview

Lets ask Kimich Kawaii some nosiy questions 
*^_^*

Hello Kimich Kawaii can you tell us what was it that inspired you to build a business?




I've always loved doing art and knew it was something I wanted to do for a living. I heard about print on demand businesses like Cafe Press and Zazzle and figured that was a great way to get my designs out to the world.


What's the meaning being the Brand names? they are very usual.


My main brand actually used to be called Soy Happy. I was just figuring out the whole business thing and didn't do a search to find out if that name was already being used and it was. I was contacted by the trademark holder (very politely I might add) and I agreed to stop. I had only had it for one year at that point and my marketing attempts had all failed so I wasn't particularly attached to it. Plus, people were thinking it was a Spanglish thing since 'soy' is the first person conjugation for 'to be'. They thought I was meaning 'I am happy' and mixing languages. So then I came up with Kimchi Kawaii because I'm Korean and doing Japanese inspired 'kawaii' art.

Frosted Fleur de Lis was the winner of two names I came up with from me throwing a bunch of words together that I liked the sound of and making sure no one had the name already, lol! All I knew was that since most of my crafts are sweet/sugary, I wanted something that reflected that. I also had a cooler logo idea for Fleur than my other name idea 


Wow that is so interesting!
What style would you say your aiming for in your products?

Definitely kawaii style. I kind of keep my Kimchi Kawaii stuff more simplistic and generally happy and full of bad puns. I like to make people laugh. Frosted Fleur is more pastel, sweets style, aimed at lolitas and people who just like sweet things.


What would you say inspires you the most?

People who can do their art full time inspire me - not just kawaii artists, any artist who has reached that level. That is my dream.


Where do you see your self in the next few years?

Hopefully, spending more time with Kimchi and Fleur and less time in the office at my full time job. Would like to be able to attend anime cons and sell at them all over the place, even different countries.


Do you have any hopes or achievements you wish to do with your business?


I think it would be so cool to be walking around and run into a complete stranger wearing one of my designs that they purchased from my online shop. My REALLY crazy day dream is that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt would like my stuff.
Seriously, I would just like my brand to be more recognized. It would be really fun to learn how to draft my own patterns so I could sell my fabric designs as Lolita dresses and stuff through Fleur (all I can do right now is put them up in Spoon flower and hope DIY lolitas buy the fabric as all my dresses are made using commercial, copyrighted sewing patterns so I can't sell my loli dresses).


Tell us then hats the most kawaii things you own?

^__^

Uh, that's a really hard question! I have some super cute plushies I got at some cons and online - like Kitty and Puppy Toasts, Mouse Bread and a super cute melon plushie.

Thank you so much for taking part of the Interview 
Arigatou gozaimasu ^^


So many cute things!
Cant wait to let you all see my new batty kawaii ring!
Stay Super Kawaii
