Rilakkuma is coming to town!

In preparation for Rilakkuma’s State-side arrival; we here at Bubble Punch hopped on over to our friends at JapanLA to help deck out the store in Christmas  style!

Jamie was kind enough to invite us over as her little Christmas elves to do a little bit of decorating before the weekend hit 🙂 We were happy to don our Santa’s Little Helper caps and scotch tape and do some old fashion decorating! Candy canes and old-school garland can never steer you wrong when it comes to simple and cost-effective holiday decor!

Hand-cut snowflakes are an affordable and fun way to add some cute christmas cheer to the decor as well! Relearning how to do these properly was interesting, too.. hah...

Have you all thought about what you’re wearing to Saturday’s Rilakkuma Christmas Pancake Party? Remember there will be a contest with prizes for the best Christmas themed outfit!

And, if you missed it, there will be gift bags for the first 100 JapanLA customers who purchase official San-X merchandise specifically released to JapanLA for this event! Don’t miss out as JapanLA will be one of very few hand-selected US based retailers authorized to sell authentic San-X goodies!

For more information on this event please visit: or refer to our previous post: HERE!

As always, we at Bubble Punch look forward to seeing you all soon! We encourage everyone to break out their creativity caps and wow us with your Christmas outfits!

See you this Saturday!

Stage Dressing for “Hero:108” promos

This past weekend, Bubble Punch teamed up with Caro from Hi Hi Caro!, to create a set for promotional spots for the Hero:108 series, produced by Cartoon Network.

This week, bands such as the Klaxons and The Charlatans will be shooting in this space to create promotional spots to be aired on Cartoon Network!

Throughout the year, this set will also be used to tape other celebrity personalities in conjunction with the animated show.

Because the animated series “Hero 108” is set in ancient China, we incorporated that feel for the set. We poked around Chinatown and the fabric district in downtown Los Angeles to gather materials, and here’s what we came up with!
