Welcome to my playground, my refuge!

I'm a GP, a gamer and a collector. This blog started out as a shrine for Rilakkuma, but has since evolved to reflect my current passions. I suppose you could call this my online diary.

I post most regularly on my Flickr:

I used to plush and you can see my work here:

Hamburger Rilakkuma Plush Set

I have seen pictures of the actual plush floating around – including those of Kori and Kiiro, so I am not sure why they have still not been ‘released’ on the San-X netshop… are they store only?  But why is Rilakkuma available on the netshop? There are already […]

Got my Hamburger Rila!

I’ve got my Hamburger Rilakkuma!  Yey! But for some funny reason, the Hamburger Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori are not available on the San-x netshop yet!  I don’t know why that is… are they releasing them at different times? Anyway – as expected, Hamburger Rilakkuma has already sold out within […]

3 more days! ^-^

4 more days! ^-^
