I was so excited when I found my bento were shown on TinyCartridge.com and gonintendo.com. They’re game sites and post geeky nerdy stuff daily.
But I think the first major exposure on the internet was on Destructoid.com (not that like I think TinyCartridge and gonintendo are not major, but Destructoid has a bigger community.)
Someone found my Kamatari bento online and sent it to one of the editors.
He wrote “If anyone needs me, I will be in the kitchen recreating a scene from Shadow of the Colossus out of my grilled cheese sandwich” to close his article. I took that as a challenge.
Non-bento character food#2: Shadow of the Colossus
Created and eaten on: 10/26/2008
I LOVE Shadow of the Colossus. It’s such a beautiful game. You have to climb a colossus and defeat it. Simple and brilliant. But those colossi are so adorable, I fell in love with them. I’d just wait for them to come to me, run away to wait, and repeat,,, 😛
Anyway, I was interested in doing some “seaweed art”, so I thought this would be a great opportunity.
First I cut the tracing paper in the same size as a cheese single. Then I found an image of the colossus, adjusted the size of the image on my monitor, put tracing paper on it and traced it. This probably isn’t the best way to trace an image, but your monitor acts like a light box, so it makes it easier for you to trace the image.
Then I put the paper over the seaweed and held them together with a paper clip. I put a catalog or something under the seaweed, and cut it out with an exacto knife.
A lot of people asked me how I did this, but the answer is simple, “very carefully.”
I don’t use special seaweed or anything. All you need is a really sharp knife and patience.
Some people asked me what seaweed on cheese would taste like. It doesn’t taste bad at all. You just kind of taste the flavor of seaweed, but you really can’t taste it much.
Maybe I’ll probably do a how-to on this one someday. All 16 of them!

EDIT: People who are debating whether Kraft singles are cheese or um,,, not food…
I do not use Kraft singles when I make grilled cheese sandwich. Oh wait, this cheese isn’t even grilled, and I don’t even eat grilled cheese sandwich. (I did eat this one though)
This was more like a joke dedicated to the editor on Destructoid. “Kraft singles on Wonder Bread = good ol’ American food” (<- yes, this is a joke too)
So you can stop telling me “This is not a good grilled cheese sandwich. You’re doing it wrong!” Thank you. 🙂
