Chubby Bunny at “Harajuku Holiday!”

23 Feb

I love vending at Tune In Tokyo‘s monthly events whenever possible! The crowd there is super sweet, fun, and passionate about music and fashion, and I always end up leaving with new ideas and new friends 🙂 Last night’s “Harajuku Holiday” themed event was no different, with lots of fun guests in attendance, plus a rad Lolita Fashion show, organized by my buddies Mandie and Oli ❤

The night also boasted performances from May J. and Joe Inoue, the hosts of NHK World’s “J-MELO”, who both performed songs from their latest albums! I was also excited to be invited in as one of the judges for the “Fashion Forward Lolita” contest, which I judged with both May and Joe ❤ Pics of the night below!

The Chubby Bunny booth! I've been marathon-ing "The Last Airbender" for the past 2 weeks while working and just finished the series yesterday, so I was inspired to do some hair loopies for the night! I'm also wearing my Rainbow Sparkle dress that I made for my fashion show at Sweet Streets last year ❤

At the judging table! Myself, May J. and Joe Inoue (making a really hilarious face).

Event Report: Tune in Tokyo’s: Akihabara Winter Wonderland w/Chubby Bunny!

23 Dec

2 days ago I was excited to be invited back to Tune in Tokyo‘s monthly event they host at Royal/T Cafe. This time, the theme was “Akihabara Winter Wonderland,” which included having guests dress up in Cosplay costumes from anime, manga, video games, or just winter-themed!

I had a blast dressing up as Santa’s little helper and hanging out with the great people who work and visited the event!There were about 300 guests in attendance that night partying in the holiday spirit! It was great!

OH MY GOD IT'S SANTAAAAAAAA! This couple was so cute, and passed out little toys to everyone who took photos with them! Best costume ever!

Thanks to LA Weekly for this pic of my outfit 🙂 (And the new Chubby Bunny stickers!)

I didn’t take too many photos but you can see lots more here!

Event Recap: Chubby Bunny at the Locketship Anniversary “Galactic Glitter” Party!

13 Nov

On Saturday, November 12, we were excited to bring our Chubby Bunny booth to help Locketship celebrate the anniversary of their brand! We have a few space-themed items of our own, and were happy to bring them along to the themed event! We also provided neat Chubby Bunny prizes for the costume contest giftbags!

Everyone dressed up in their most out-of-this-world garb to get into the Galactic theme!  This was my outfit for the night! My awesome friend Jenny made the skirt and I did the star cut outs and bolero. Super fast super simple and super space invader-like!  Threw it on over another dress I already own for good sparkly measure, haha.

Here, I'm pictured wearing the Chubby Bunny Purple Star Bow, and the Bunnies In Space Collaboration Bow in my hair!

Locketship x Chubby Bunny Collaboration!

7 Nov

Although I last posted about my collaboration with SPANK!, 1 week before that happens, I’ll be participating in another fun event!

To celebrate the anniversary of my friend Maria’s brand, Locketship, we teamed up to make a super cute bow for her anniversary party, being held on November 12th from 7 – 11pm at Meltdown Comics!

Locketship provided me with a super cute bunny pendant which I fashioned as the centerpiece for a super cute bow! Take a look below!

The bows feature a rabbit in space, situated on a double bow. The top layer of the bow has glitter and stars in it, while the bottom layer has a marbled black and blue pattern on it that’s totally space-a-riffic! They’re are only 8 being produced for sale, and they are $24 each!


This super special item will debut and be for sale at the Locketship Anniversary party! They are super limited, so we hope to see you there early!

 

 

Chubby Bunny + SPANK! (A love story!)

4 Nov

Days at the Chubby Bunny workshop have been getting more and more hectic as we come closer to the big fashion show and pop up store debut at the Sweet Streets opening party on November 19th! [EDIT: Sorry guys, I keep messing up the dates. But it’s the 19th!!)

I’ve neglected to give some background info on this mighty awesome collaboration so I thought I’d say a few words before giving you all a sneak peek at the goods!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that SPANK! owner Tavuchi and I have been friends for a little while, with her coming to the US pretty often, and me hanging out with her and her friends in Tokyo while I was there a few months ago, and even staying at her totally cute apartment

We had been talking about doing a project together since spring of this year, and wanted to do a collaboration fashion show and pop up store. As the fates would have it, we were able to find a venue for our ideas at the Sweet Streets exhibition! It was a match made in heaven, since Sweet Streets (which I helped to produce and exhibited in last year) focuses on Japanese pop culture and art, and that’s sort of where SPANK! an Chubby Bunny fall in ❤

Working with Tavuchi these past couple of months prepping for the show have been really fun and interesting. It’s been really great to be able to work with such a distinguished brand in the Japanese fashion community, and it totally helps that Tavuchi and I totally think on the same wavelength of wierdness when it comes to a lot of things!

Our fashion show and pop up show are just one aspect of Sweet Streets. Make sure you guys take a good look at all of the amazing art that will be on display at the gallery that night!

The SPANK! x CHUBBY BUNNY POP UP SHOP will feature an array of items from our normal stores, PLUS exclusive items from our respective brands for this event! Chubby Bunny will debuting our APPAREL line at this event as well! But that’s not all! SPANK! and Chubby Bunny will also be releasing extremely limited COLLABORATION products! Photos and details about these products will be hush hush until closer to the event so stay tuned!

Additionally, the SPANK! x CHUBBY BUNNY FASHION SHOW will feature models selected from our nationwide model search, looking for fans of our brands that exuded personality, style, and general awesomeness! The fashion show starts at 8PM, and there is SURE to be a crowd, so we urge fans to come as EARLY as you can to line up!! The show will feature models wearing a mix of SPANK! and Chubby Bunny apparel and accessories, with makeup sponsored by our awesome friends at Sugarpill Cosmetics!

Alright, enough yapping! Check out the sneak peek of products from SPANK! and CHUBBY BUNNY below! (we’ll be doing another sneak peek post in a week so make sure to check back soon!)
