Super exciting news!! Check out our cute new Rilakkuma Store Exclusive Aloha Rilakkuma plushie!
I love how our Aloha Rilakkuma family has been expanding recently! This sunshine-ready bear is the Rilakkuma Store exclusive plushie from the Aloha Rilakkuma series, released in April 2013!
He is particularly special to us because Simon won him in the Spring 2014 Mira Plush Art Contest!
Simon, our resident Rilakkuma portrait artist, submitted the following piece, featuring the Rilakkuma Marine Series:
Thanks so much for sponsoring this contest and so generously supporting the Rilakkuma art community, Mira Plush! Make sure you check out Mira Plush’s online Rilakkuma store – I’ve purchased from them before, and they’re very fast and reliable! Mira Plush also has a great new WordPress blog full of fun photos, so be sure to support them there, too!
It’s really so fun to share Rilakkuma art with the community! CONGRATULATIONS, Simon!
For Simon’s next work, he’s considering doing an interpretation on the new Rilakkuma in Space Series to be released in July. We’re constantly thinking of new Rilakkuma scenes and inspiration for Simon to draw – ideas are welcome!
Ah!!! So cute!! Such a lovely drawing!! Rilakkuma looks so handsome, standing there just like a General!! And as always, Korilakkuma is just checking out to see if she has any fur out of place using the water’s reflection and chick is trying very hard to catch a fish for their dinner?😊
CONGRATULATIONS SIMON!! TRULY A LOVELY DRAWING!!! 😄
Shall look forward to your Rilakkuma In Space drawing. Am sure that it would be brilliant!! 😉
:D I thought Simon did a great job, too! Rilakkuma is such a great inspiration hahaha <3
He’s so cute with his friends, they all look so relaxed! Congratulations on winning the contest~Simon has true skills and I love that drawling. Oh that’s a good idea maybe there are alien kumas out there he he. I look forward to more drawing I would love to see the anniversary series (the food ones) all together for a birthday or something fun~
Hey, great idea!! I love the food anniversary series, they would really look so cute all together like a family portrait hehehe <3
I love that picture with all the Aloha Rilas just chilling. I wish I could join them, I could definitely do with some R&R.
Congrats to Simon! The portrait looks amazing, I think he did an amazing job drawing all of them, their actions really represent who they are in my opinion. Can’t wait to see his Space Series portrait, I’m sure it’ll be just as awesome as all his other ones!
They really do look relaxed – I could do with a day on a boat too. The weather here right now is super pretty and the temperature is just right, but I’m cooped up at school all day :/
I can’t wait to see Simon’s next piece, too! Rilakkuma art is my favorite art hahaha
I love the sunglasses too! Always amazed to see the detail they put in the Rilakkuma accessories.
I’ve been visiting your blog for a little but now, as I myself have gotten into Rilakkuma. Thanks to you I’ve found stores that sell genuine ones. I already have a classic plushie, and the “which color do you like” one. I’m waiting for the Polar Bear series to come in the mail!
I love your blog and your lifestyle photos are adorable. Happy blogging, and here’s to hoping I someday get a collection like yours!
Hey, thanks so much for reading my blog!! It’s so great to hear that you’re starting your own Rilakkuma collection too :D You’re definitely off to a good start!
Ooooo I really really need the Aloha series in my life, it feels like a vacation with them around, your so lucky that you have the complete series, I hope I can get my hands on at least one of them! His sunglasses are so adorable, and makes him look handsome! Congratulations Simon, your photo is so amazing and funny! I can’t wait for your Rilakkuma In Space drawing! Maybe Rilakkuma will come up with an awesome drawing too, good luck!
Eee I love this series so much, too – makes me want to take a vacation haha. His bear sunglasses are really my favorite accessory, and the design on his shirt is really detailed! I’m so happy to expand my Aloha Rilakkuma collection with this bear – I think it’s the series I have the most plushies from now!
