爱。开心便当のKuromi

I have fall in love with this Sanrio (a Japanese company specialized in creating cute characters) character recently.  She is so adorable and I first saw her was while I was reading a Hong Kong’s magazine. I have decided to make Kuromi bento last night, so, I started to search through Internet and found some information about her.

Kuromi is the rival of My Melody from the anime Onegai My Melody. She is a white rabbit or imp-like creature, wearing a black jester’s hat with a pink skull on the front and a black “devil” tail in the place of a normal rabbit’s tail. Kuromi’s appearance also looks similar to that of classic cartoon characters from the 1920s and 1930s. Goods featuring Kuromi first appeared in Japan in 2005. She has three image songs all sung by her seiyū, Junko Takeuchi. Kuromi sometimes wears fuchsia pink skull cherries on her right ear.

Kuromi’s birthday is on October 31 (Halloween). Although Kuromi has a rowdy free spirit, she is actually quite girly on the inside and has a soft spot for cute and handsome guys. Kuromi enjoys keeping a diary and reading romance novels. Her favorite color is black and her favorite food is shallots.

I used the photo as a guideline and prepared the bento this morning.

I made some fried meat balls last night.  At the same time, I made a pork patty  for this morning bento.  I made a burger with the patty I have, and used it as the head of Kuromi and put in the face details which cut from nori and ham. The black jester’s hat is also made of bread and covered by nori.    The pink skull on the front of her hat was cut from ham too.

I included two meat balls, a sweet corn, two ham flowers, some fresh blackcurrents and some strawberries in the box to comple the bento.

Have a great and joyful weekend ahead!

    I love this bento!
    How did you make the ham flowers? :$

      Thanks so much, tutora. Thanks for popping by and welcome to my blog.🙂
      The ham flower is very easy to make, first, take a piece of ham and lightly fold it into half. Then, cut lines in the middle of ham, but not all the way, cut at the folded area not the edges. Then, roll the ham over and secure it with a thin strap of spaghetti. You can do the same using an egg sheet.
      I hope you are able to understand my instructions…may be I should take photos step-by-step for this.🙂

    I have always thought this is a ‘he’. My kids would argue and said it’s a ‘she’ because it has eye lashes!! Now i know they’re right. Haha… Cute kuromi, but i like my hello kitty more! Meow. …=^.^=

    • Emily Ng says:

    Yeeeaah, bad girl in the bento box! LOL. We do need variation and a new fresh idea right? Your Kuromi neutralizes the good characters’ domination in bento boxes hehehehehe. Very good job😀

    • Emily Ng says:

      Thanks for your kind comments, Tata.🙂
      Should have something “evil” to balance off the “cute” bento world too..haha.
