thank you Catherine! It looks really cool!
I can't imagine how ridiculous my mongrel mutts would look in this, but these guys looked so great!
Anyways, I also wrote about shooting the kintaro ame shop for Get Lost, which we also feature in the kawaii book. Kintaro ame are these super sweet, candy rolls, which are assembled in parts which are rolled together. Then they form this long tube, and when cut, it produces a face inside. If that description is puzzling, the photos below might help.
Kintaro Ame are the most famous motif, but they also make a plethora of really cute traditional animals and folkloric figures.
