so basically a week ago, i entered a contest on facebook literally at the last minute to win one of three of the rilakkuma characters in the ‘rilakkuma shop’ outfits that can only be bought at the limited stores in japan.
i came across this contest because i was wondering if there would be a pop up shop for rilakkuma in san francisco someday, since there was one in LA and one recently in culver city, CA. so the girl whose blog i was looking at who had posted pics of the event in culver city told me to go to the official english san-x facebook page. which i did. and lucky for me they were ending a contest as soon as i entered ^_^
proud to say, i was one of the winners! unfortunately not rilakkuma BUT korilakkuma which is still really adorable!
oh, and let me add that they shipped it friday and it came MONDAY! FAST FAST :)
you only had to answer 5 what seemed to be simple questions:
1. What is Rilakkuma the most insecure about? [a: having his zipper lowered]
2. Which part of Rilakkuma’s body Kiroitori would bite when Kiroitori is upset? [a: tail]
3. What costume did Rilakkuma debut for the Rilakkuma 5th Anniversary? [a: all dressed as kings!]
4. What would kind of Rilakkuma goods would you like to be able to purchase in the U.S.A? [a: i said, more of the plushies that are usually only available in japan ;o;]
5. Please list your full legal name, mailing address with zipcode & email address. [a: :D]
out of the people who answered right, they would pick 3 random winners. i’m really lucky i guess! :D :D
here are my photos now; it arrived in a small box, and inside was this ADORABLE double sided bag…
and rolled up inside, was……..!
IT’S SO SORT AND CUTE AND AAAAAAAAH! the apron is somewhat removable but i dont want to take it off.
i’m so happy! it’s so rare, and on ebay it’s worth $50! @___@ i just feel so special right now.
a new one, for the collection! yee haw.
the bag is hanging above my desk now. aahhhh it’ll be cute to look at when i go to sleep:
(from the angle of my bed, sorta)
chillin with some of the new compadres. i bet kori feels weird next to his clone that doesn’t have an apron o__O
(they’re the same material, too! except i bought the non-apron one in the sanrio store for $10 and the matching rilakkuma one in japan for like $8 XD)
and other news; I BEAT QWOP! if you don’t know what that is, it’s this impossible running game in which you must use the keys QWOP to run. it’s like impossible. i beat it in 12 minutes though! (from 5:22 PM to 5:34 PM BWAHAHAHA)
