Spirited Away Bento by mindfire3927 Spirited Away Bento by mindfire3927
For the #Bento-Love Miyazaki contest! I'm such a fangirl of Spirited Away I just had to obsess over my favorite characters.

LEFT: bridge to the bathhouse (butternut squash), purple fumi slaw running under the bridge, chicken wings, dried persimmon and apple slices, container (made from folded rice paper) of sweet/spicy almonds.

RIGHT: Chihiro (one whole carved jicama, rice noodle clothes/hair, nori details), Haku (one whole steamed sweetcake, coconut/honey feathering, pear legs/details), rainbow tapioca pearls.



This was also the first time I tried taking some WIP photos while I made my bento. It ended up being way more of a hassle than I expected but I'm glad to be able to post some pics (maybe tutorials?) later, since it was a neat process making my own sweetcake mold for Haku and the rice paper container.

This is awesome!
My husband would love this, he's a big fan of Spirited Away. :D

How do you have the time to create such beautiful things? I've been trying to make bento for a while now and am no where near as creative.
Thumbs up!

It's a lot of trial and error and just trying everything until something works. Someday I'll work up the nerve to post the tons of absolutely hideous bentos I started out making...but for now you'll just have to take my word that I definitely started at the bottom ;)

Sketch out your ideas! It really is a lifesaver (I had three pages of notes on this Spirited Away bento)! Get a cheap tupperware box and keep all your bento supplies in it so you can grab everything you need at once. Just like anything else, once you get used to your tools and your workspace and your general "routine", things go pretty quickly. I still have my days when I fumble around for hours with no idea what I'm doing but for the most part it's only a 30-45 minute process.

Hopefully there's some useful information in all my ramblings :D Let me know and I'll try to answer any other questions!

Spirited Away? More like blown away! This is a cut above anything I've ever seen. It's one thing to make some rice laying in the box look like a panda bear or something, but to make actual 3d food? Amazing! I don't think I've ever given anyone a 'Wow' before, but you deserve it!

I wouldn't want to eat this bento because it's so nice....I'd freeze it and store it away in a giant freezer....:la:
