7 Cute and Almost Essential Items for the Kitchen

If you like to cook and wear Lolita, please wear an apron. Just don't lick the bowl with your fingers when you do.
Living in the city is hard and hectic.  Sometimes you just need a cute apartment to make it better.  Sometimes that cute apartment is out of your price range.  Sometimes you also live with a significant other, making it difficult to fight that urge to cover every inch in Hello Kitty items or look like you've just stepped into Candyland.

The kitchen doesn't have to be one of them. The kitchen can be you "happy place" from all that. That is if you are the cooking-type or want to learn.

To compromise, make sure what you're using to furnish your apartment is also cute but functional. It's hard to complain when you can't find a spatula to flip that pancake and you get handed one shaped like Snow White (or Darth Vader).

Below are a few items that I find are not only kitschy, but most important of all functional for a very cute kitchen.

Cupcake of the Week: Angry

My favorite character of the Hangry & Angry duo.
This cupcake was from the Hell Cat Party that h.Naoto threw for customers in honor of Gashicon (creator of Hangry & Angry). It was oreo-flavored and came with these cute charms - either Hangry (the shy punk) or Angry (the violent Gothic Lolita). I was so impressed by the simple craftmanship that I carefully pried the bow off.

On another note this was also my Sunday breakfast. I advise no one to do that.

Street Snaps: Otakon 2012

From the Gothic Lolita Tea Party.
Usually I street snaps after an overview, but I've been busy trying to catch up. So here's a teaser of my adventures at Otakon 2012!

There were certainly quite more Lolitas than I could snap. I apologized if I could not get everyone.
