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:

My collection so far…

Okay this is a quick photo update of my Rilakkuma collection so far. I still have a couple more plushies coming – including my purple and red pom pom pouch Rilakkumas, my Monogram set, my Maracas Rainbow Kiiroitori, my Hamburger set, my furry Korilakkuma and my sweets Korilakkuma.
