So I watched RRCherrypie's Hello Kitty bento box tutorial on YT and I LOVED it. Unfortunately as much as I would like to make a real bento box, finding a local japanese market for the right ingredients is so difficult for me atm. *sadness!* Then I thought of the next best thing: polymer clay! On the left is the real bento and on the right is my rendition.
Anyways, this is basically the same as the Pinkie Pie birthday gift set that I posted earlier [link] Except this one was made for myself with my favorite pony! Doctor pony FOR THE WIN! Anyways, I hand sculpted the Doctor Whooves cuddling his little TARDIS out of sculpey III, folded seventy-six paper stars, and put it all in the box I assembled. The Doctor Whooves star paper is by me, and can be found here [link] and here [link] There are also a few stars made of this TARDIS star paper [link] A paper star tutorial is here [link] if you want to try folding some for yourself. And the pattern for the box can be found here [link]
These onions had interesting and amusing "hair styles" - their leaves were growing and growing so I didn't dare to cut them for cooking or frying, instead I kept them, took a photo and checked out once and a while how long this would grow. But - of course - whenever you leave fresh food uneaten for a longer while they get worse and spoil. So some of them never got eaten.
This was my first bento. It was a couple weeks ago. I will be making another tomorrow. I have grade exams and tech week. I'm happy. During this time I feel useful. now I'm babbling.. I have said what I needed to say so I will stop now..
::EDITED:: alright so some are curious about the bento and I forgot to say what was in it. (left to right) Turkey/tortilla/cream cheese rolls, Star fruit, cheese, blue berries, a peanut butter banana sandwich, and kiwi. the sandwich was pressed into the weird shape with some Tupperware item my mom owns.
