Kawaii Interview time with Kelsey (Kimono time)

Its time for a other Kawaii interview with some one I find is very interesting and very kawaii! Kimono time  who is a Jpop dancer on youtube! so lets get on with the interview!


Hello , Hi there Kelsey, please do tell us more about yourself!
Hello, my name's Kelsey! I'm a teeny arpakasso obsessed hobbit from yorkshire and I love dressing and being inspired by jfashion!http://www.youtube.com/kimonotime
N'aww lol to cute , First off when and how did you get into Kawaii culture?

I think it would probably be after I saw Gwen Stefani and I looked up Harajuku girls. I became obsessed with the fashion and I'd look at pictures on google all the time, wishing I could look as cool!
What did you find that appealed to you in Kawaii Culture?
It's just so different to anything I see in my everyday life. I'm quite an energetic and expressive person and I feel like the kawaii culture and it's fashion really fits my personality.
What do Kawaii mean to you?
To me, it means embracing yourself fully and not being afraid to be who you want to be! Sometimes it can mean cute, but there are so many ways a person can be cute! 

I love your dress sense,(its super kawaii) and  your style can you tell us more about it and do you have any tips on how to achieve it ?

Thank you so much! ^^
I never really know what my style truly is. I just wear what I want. But there always seems to be a hint of cute in there somewhere! I'm really inspired by the street style in harajuku and japan, and I like to mix it with some U.K styles sometimes too. .To get inspiration, I look on tumblr, or instagram at street snaps. 
I love mixing styles
And I really enjoy expressing things I love through my outfits, for example pizza!

Wow cool, 
What styles would you say influence you?
Mostly street styles, but I love pretty pastel styles like fairy kei too.
Where do you like to shop for your style?
I get a lot of stuff online, mainly ebay, I also love thrifting and charity shopping. A lot of my clothes are from the U.K high street too.

How do others react to your Kawaii styles?
Sometimes I get some stares in public, but I don't really mind. I used to be scared because I thought everyone was making fun of me, but actually, I'm surprised because every person that has spoken to me in public are always interested and ask me where I get my things from. I especially love wearing kawaii styles in London! I see people smiling, and whether it's a mocking smile or a genuine smile, it makes me feel happy that my style made someone smile that day!

I have a few friends that are into the same style as me but my other friends and my family are used to it, since I've always been a little bit out there. My mum is always asking me if she's kawaii!
Wow that is very interesting!
Since being into Kawaii Culture would you say the way you do some things likes of your hair and make up ,Have they changed over time?

Yes! I love experimenting with my look, it's never the same! I'm obsessed with wigs too, they can give you a completely different look!
Do you have any 'can not live with out' items that are Kawaii?
My platform shoes and my wigs! Also, bows, I couldn't live without bows!

What kind or anime or manga do you like and what would you recommend to some one?
I'm not actually a huge anime or manga fan. But one of my favourites is Chobits because she's a cute android, who doesn't like cute androids?? It's such a heart warming story!

What kind of Music do you listen too?

I listen to lots of Jpop and Kpop. My favourite artists are Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and 2NE1. But I also love pop music in the U.K and U.S too. I love pop music!
Who would you pick Sanrio or San X its a tough question ^^!

I think it has to be San X ! All the characters look so cuddly!

And who would you say is your most loved Kawaii Character?

I love the Mameshiba's! I wish they were real things!
*^* me too!!
What has been your most creative project to date?

I entered a harajuku fashion show, and I decided to make a cord from a theme. I chose Monsters VS Aliens theme!
Do you have a Kawaii Idol or some one that inspires you?
Yes, I have quite a few!
But some of them are Kyary Pamyu Pamyu( I can't wait to see her in London!), Ayumi Seto, Kozue Akimoto and I love the instagrammer Andiautumn.

If you could go anywhere for a day where would you go and what would you do?
This is very obvious, but I've never been to Japan, so I would take a huge empty suitcase with me and go crazy in Harajuku.

Hehe - okay am your very own Kawaii fairy and I can grant you 3 wishes! What can I make happen for you?!
Ok, I'm going to keep them kawaii related~
1. A trip to Japan with all my friends!
2. That I could meet Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and perform with her on stage (I'm a huge fan!)
3. That is was the law that everytime someone woke up an arpakasso would appear and tell you when you woke up how kawaii you are and shout words of encouragement, to make you happy for the day! ~

Thank you so much for the interview! 
Kelsey ~<3 <3

Stay cute or die trying!


Hey cute things!
I hope you are all well. Last November I took advantage of Black Friday thanks to online shopping and found a shop called Stay Cute or Tokyo Hardcore on Facebook.
Any way I was delighted to get my order in the mail today!This time of year I have so much coming in the mail from orders for Christmas form family or to family,Birthday gifts for chibi bean, stuff for the house and your daily stuff, that you use all the time and the I've just ran out of it stuff.... and  of course My own kawaii shopping for the blog - oh boy the post man is super busy!! No wonder am broke so quickly at midway through the month! 
 But hey once everything is out the way this month I can use next year to save up for a 3DS and a DSLR and a class I want to sign up for next year ! 

Ah the Kawaii Life its a hard one.*nods* So lets get on with my un-boxing from Stay Cute.


My Parcel took about 2 weeks to arrive to the UK. Which I more a less expected and it was easy enough to order.


I was a bit disappointed to find that my order was not really presented in some way, However the main thing is that everything was safe and sound in the box.   I was happy to get my order as I had been looking forward to it.


It was the slogan  Stay Cute or Die Trying that I thought was so funny espicaly when my excuse for every thing is '' Aww but its cute!'' And I say Cute and Kawaii all the time haha!


I got myself the very cute snap back hat, It has Stay Cute on it with a dripping style text and a really nice clash on the hat with the flowers. Which works really well together. The hat is really good quality and made well and looks great when worn with my normal hair and wigs.


I went for the top in a bigger size as I love my over sized style tops and you can layer them in winter to keep you cosy! I really like the top its got 3 quarter length on the sleeves. Again the top is made well and really good quality material and the printed texted on it is super clear.  And looks really trendy on and works well with the Hat too!It make a really nice overall look rather street like looking but still sweet and cute at the same time.  Over all am very pleased with my order.
I took a while to customize my wigs so that I had really puffy looking hair , so I might do a small video of that once I get myself a new tripod for filming.
