We’d love to thank all our friends who dared to bear the rainy Los Angeles weather in support Rilakkuma’s Christmas Pancake Party at JapanLA last nite! We hope you all had as much fun as we did!
So here you go! This is just a small pictorial delight of last night’s on-goings. The official Rilakkuma Fan photos will be up at Ronysphotobooth.com shortly!
San-X, not to be confused with Sanrio (for those who don’t know) has a plethora of lovable and quirky characters that are waiting to be discovered. Rilakkuma is the first to officially arrive state-side at JapanLA, and undoubtedly the other equally lovable characters from San-X will be arriving shortly after him.
Fans piled into JapanLA in hopes of getting a photo with Rilakkuma as well as purchasing the exclusive San-X merchandise at the event. Undoubtedly, having the Buttermilk Truck parked outside with warm and delicious pancakes to feed a cold crowd surely did not hurt either. We can attest that their Red Velvet pancakes and the special Gingerbread and Peaches pancakes were scrumptuous.
There were special goodie bags given to the first 100 customers to purchase San-X merchandise. We were able to get our hands of some of the goods for your viewing pleasure. As you can see, the bags were filled with fun surprises like keychains, phone charms, an an array of stickers!
Though the part was last night, any one interested in purchasing San-X goodies can still head on over to JapanLA in person or to their website!
Again, thank you all for giving San-X and Rilakkuma a great big warm welcome!
