I felt defeated after making my Moyashimon bento. I wanted to make a kyaraben, but I was feeling lazy (as usual)… So I started thinking of what I could make with what I had in the fridge with a minimum amount of effort.

Bento#30: Raving Rabbid bento #2
Created and eaten on: 12/16/2008

I’ve made “Raving Rabbids” charaben before, but I used the cookie cutter I made and it was very abstract. So this time, I decided to make a more obvious Rabbid bento.

I knew the rabbid would be mainly rice, so I needed to make the background color something other than white. I mixed vegetables mix with rice, curry powder and ketchup, and put it in the bento box for the background. I put plastic wrap over the drawing I did, and shaped the Rabbid with plain rice. Then I cut ham and kamaboko (fish cake) for the inside of its mouth and teeth. I’d already done this in “Sleeping Totoro” and “Flying Totoro”, so it was fairly easy. I also made ears with kamaboko and ham, and stomach with ham. For its eyes, I used a hole puncher to cut out the pink part of kamaboko, white part of kamaboko, tomato skin, seaweed and put each of them slightly off from each other so you could see each layer. Then I cut a circle of the pink part of kamaboko in half and put it on the one of the eyes to make it a “twitchy eye”.

I had made Japanese style hamburg the night before, and I kept some meat uncooked. So I made a couple of dome-shaped meatballs with it, fried them in oil, and put sauce on for the plungers. Then I cut a potato and fried it for the plunger handles.

I put the meatball plungers at the bottom of the bento box with fried potato handles, and made the Rabbid hold the plunger.

I boiled some broccoli and put it between the plungers and rice. After it was done, I thought it lacked color, so I added some carrot flowers (see “how to make vegetable flowers).

This one took less time than my usual bento, but that doesn’t mean I was satisfied with it. I wanted to do a lot more to this bento, but I just didn’t think I had enough time to do it, so I just didn’t even try. I usually work on my bento until very last minute, but I can tell when I had absolutely no chance of finishing it. As a result, I think this bento came out very plain. I’ll upload the sketch for this one later, but I originally had a toilet and Rayman in my sketch…

Oh well. I do like the twitchy eye though. 😀

I think the rabbid is very successful. I love the twitchy eye. Maybe you could do a striped background. Maybe with the curry ketchup rice and some purple cabbage rice. Just thinking out loud. 🙂

Wow could you be more awesome? I too love the right eye. Cute!

LOVE! RAbbids are too insane. I remember seeing this yesterday and having the strongest urge to play (and I did…now I can’t really move my arms…). When my boyfriend got home, I showed him the bento and then “introduced” him to Rabbids XD LUFF the maniacal expression!

LOL. Good one. Love the fries.

OMG, that is so awesome! Do you think my son would actually eat veggies if it came with Rayman Rabbids? BTW, I am picking your site as an editor’s pick on kirtsy :).
