Moomin fans watch out! We are going to be stocking some super new Moomin items including bags, Amigurumi, compact mirrors, keyrings and more.

We have such a soft spot for these strange  creatures and would love to visit the Mommin house in Moomin land some day.

To keep us going until then we thought the next best thing would be to surround ourselves with as much Moomin merchandise as possible.

I just stumbled across an awesome website selling some uber kawaii one off items – New York Couture.Some of the styles are slightly scary and OTT but that’s exactly what we liked about it. Loving the frilly green cape and rara skirt combo.

Old Favourites

[large][AnimePaper]wallpapers_Interstella-5555_Jareth86(1.6)__THISRES__61051

We get inspired by so much and got thinking about one of our old favourites the amazing Interstella 5555:The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem.

It is a feature-length Japanese animated musical film and is the visual realization of Discovery, an album by Daft Punk.
Each track from the album has been animated as an episode in the story of the abduction and rescue of an interstellar pop band.

We think everyone should watch this!

Chicki Loves Zombuki Dolls

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

Zombuki dolls are the creation of  super taleneted Brigitte Coovert from Florida. The Zombuki collection started back in 2006 and to date she has created over 30 of these beautiful creatures.
Zombuki, a combination of the words “zombie” and “kabuki,” was a term dreamed up with the help of a friend some time ago. Zombukis are meant to be a hybrid of many styles and cultures (the zombie itself being both alive and dead), able to embody many looks, to be chimeras of the doll world.
Go to – http://www.zombuki.com/ to view the collection.

We love the film My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari no Totoro), it has to be one of our favourites by far. Studio Ghibli make the most wonderful films and we think everyone must see them. It will make your life so much better :D .

Film Summary – When two girls move to the country to be near their ailing mother, they have adventures with the wonderous forest spirits who live nearby.

Anyway we want to give one of our readers a really cute Totoro wallet.This wallet is awesome as it has the Cat Bus,Totoro and Mei.Inside there is a soot sprite that holds all of your cards together.
