Whew, my first week of official medical school is over! I love the teaching style so far, and the material is heavy, but manageable for now (or did I speak too soon?). Now that the weekend’s here, I’ve got time to do Rilakkuma things :)
Anyway, the theme of this post is Korilakkuma!
These are actually my sister’s plushies! But they deserve some time in the spotlight too, of course!
Yay! I’m so glad the other members of my family have some love for the other characters in the Rilakkuma crew to balance out my Rilakkuma fanaticism!
We got the (naked) Korilakkuma at Tokyo Station and the watermelon Korilakkuma at Skytree! The watermelon set was released during Skytree’s 1st Anniversary, but they still had a bunch of the XL plushies for sale when my family went in June!
In other news, Rilakkuma and friends were spotted at this year’s 7’s Day!
According to Dino Dale Carbonare at SpeedHunters, 7’s Day is the unofficial celebration of the Mazda RX-7 every year on July 7 (7/7) in the Daikoku Parking Area. And while it’s known it’s vast outpouring of MX-7’s, 7’s Day not only celebrates 7s, but anything rotary engine related!
RX-7 owners are a really tight knit community, and they organize this gathering every year just by word of mouth – incredible! It’s so cool to see RX-7 and Rilakkuma enthusiasts intersect :)
Um… not exactly sure why Rilakkuma is face-down on top of this FD, but hey – super cute Rilakkuma spotting, in my opinion!
Also, do y’all think this is the Christmas Net Shop Exclusive for this year?
Looks like it’s Rilakkuma Wonderland themed! They look like mini-plushies, and it seems that their noses are flat too haha
Pretty cute, and looks like they’re playing different instruments from the ones in the summer release? I spy a violin/bass violin-playing Rilakkuma, I think!
Hahaha! The mini plushes are so cute! But why are their noses flat?! The faceplanted Rilakkuma is sooooo hilariously adorable! Also, congratz on getting through your first week of med school.
I <3 this post, because you featured Korilakkuma! She has all my <3
Thanks! I really needed to have some Korilakkuma love on this blog <3
Haha I don't know why their noses are flat – the only one's I've seen with flat noses are the REALLY small plushies – like the 2 Korilakkumas attached to the Gemini Rilakkuma and the little Rilakkumas attached to many of the Wonderland plushies. I wonder how big this Christmas set will be? Also, I feel like winter/Christmas is so far away too hahaha
Yay you made it through your first week :D Thats funny to see a Rilakkuma7days? I saw someone by the huge Rilakkuma when I was at kiddyland a month back…I wonder if its the same person>.< For the christmas cuties I'm not sure what to think…they are super cute but last years play set was well more of a play set…. we'll see. How about you, have you set your sights on it?
Haha yeah, I always wonder how many of those giant Rilakkumas get sold every year – I remember I saw one when I was in San Francisco last year, but it was super expensive, and seemed like it had been sitting there for a while :O
Hmm, I’m not sure if I’ll be getting this Christmas set, esp since I already bought that other Christmas playset recently haha I do like the bass violin player from what I can see – I wish they made a bigger individual version of him like the had in that Rilakkuma orchestra video (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=508205942587614)
Glad med school isn’t too stressful for you so far!
It looks like Rilakkuma road kill on the car! o_O
Love the box of rilaks for Christmas! Of only they were tree decorations it would be perfect! Glad to see the violin playing one, I was admiring him at the exhibition yesterday wishing he was avail to buy.
Yeah the violin bear looks great! Though I wonder how he (or any of these musicians actually) play with just paws hahaha. I would love to have these little guys as ornaments though!
Haha I’m not sure why the giant Rilakkuma is face-down – I’m just hoping the car is clean!
That’s true playing a trumpet or horn with no fingers has to be a challenge!x
Lol at the car picture, way to cute and hilarious!! The Xmas playset looks so cute too, it’s so tempting to buy lol, but I might not because I already got the regular sized marching band. But the tiny kumas look extra cute in this picture… Hmmm decisions decisions~
Hmm yeah, I might not either because I just spent a chunk of money on older plushies. I always seem to change my mind about these sorts of things though hahaha
