Wow, I can’t believe that we’ve got 200 Facebook fans already. We would like to thank all of our friends for the support, it really gives us the spirit to continue improve our work to make better kyaraben.
Since we’re in October, so it’s time for some Halloween theme kyaraben. Among veteran bento makers this theme have already done to death, but usually the involved party include pumpkins, bats, ghosts, full moon, witch wearing black hat, skulls, dracula, frankenstein, black cats, and many others.
For this occasion I tried making a devil costumed Hello Kitty. Its fairly easy to make, I made the base brown color and cut the parts puzzle style. I didn’t need to use nori at all, all I need to do was cut her eyes and whiskers on the white head part, simple and clean. I am always happy if I can avoid using nori for details ^0^
I add the usual Halloween pumpkins for more Halloween feel. The pumpkins were made with carrot and cut using my apple shaped vegetable cutter, then I cut the leaf part to make it look like pumpkin and cut the eyes and mouth with art knife.
The bento filling is usual Japanese style with chicken katsu, corn, broccoli, and strawberry konyaku jelly. This time instead of white rice I made Japanese fried rice.
