This year, I prepared a lot of items including handmade Poro. I also got few new items debuting in the show, like tiny alpacasso from Amuse, Gothic Classical Bear and Kotoritai collection. We try to bring something new for each conventions, so customers will always come back to us to hunt new things! This is our goal and wishes that each customers will remember us as “The most kawaii booth in the convention”

♥ Gothic Classical Cute Bear Review ♥
Today I wanna do a review on Amuse newest release ” Gothic Classical Cute Bear” phew, such a long name 😀
I always like bears, specially fluffy furry bears! 😀 When I saw Amuse catalog that they have Gothic theme on Classical Cute bear, I immediately made an order.
♥ Happy Tail Kitty Brings Happiness ♥
Happy New Year! Ruru Victoria wishes you a very happy and prosperous 2015!
Okie, let’s talk about these kawaii cats from Japan! When I first saw these cute kitties I immediately fell in love with them! This is the newest character from Amuse Japan!
I liked how they made the face and ears, soft fur and colors! This is something you should look at in person, the picture didn’t do it justice. 😛 Amuse released Happy Tail at the end of December 2014. We immediately got them! I can’t stop watching these cuties Amuse mentioned about these cute cats “Happy Tail, the tail that brings happiness”
Oh, I forgot to mention that we are Amuse USA Authorized Direct Seller!
When we posted promo pictures on the Facebook page, someone mentioned about Happy Tail looked like Disney Tokyo’s new character “Gelatoni” (Duffy’s new friend)
Well, I can’t deny that Happy Tail & Gelatoni are very much alike. Happy Tail is from Amuse and Gelatoni is from Disney Tokyo. And when you compare with the prices, Happy Tail is only 1/3 of the price. :O Alike or not, I think they both looked very cute
Happy Tail comes with 4 beautiful colors and each one of them has a name: Miu (pink), Pinot (purple), Kofi (brown) and Gris (gray)
Which Happy Tail is YOUR favorite?
Picking through the door “Who is it?” Kofi asked
We are Happy Tail, and we bring happiness to you! We love you!
Here is the short video to show what are they look like. If you want to find out more about Happy Tail, you can visit our store : RuRu Victoria Online Store
They will be featured in our upcoming Anime Convention Magic City Comic Con from Jan 16-18th, 2015. Please visit our booth (# 621) and say hello! Our staffs will be giving out Japanese candies and you can take pictures with our staffs
Thank you and we hope to see you at the convention!

♥ League Of Legends Poro Handmade Plush ♥
Do you play League of Legends (LOL)?
Do you play League of Legends? I made this fluffy create because I fell in love with his fluffiness and roundness! He’s from a very popular online game called League of Legends!
I’m currently making these cuties for Animate Miami convention in November! I’m SO excited because I like Poro a LOT and I always wanted to make him. My friend used to make tons of Poro charms and I was amazed by this big tongue fluffy creature <3 ahhhhh!!! Kawaii More items will be revealed soon, so make sure to subscribe my blog
Here is my Poro work-in-progress picture! I am planning to make a dozen of these fluffy creatures and I wanted to post it few in my shops. 😀
They aren’t done YET, I am still trying to figure out few things here and there. Hopefully I will list them soon. I should take a proper photo shoot when they are done. Oh yeah, I redesigned my picture logo, I really liked it! It is simple but elegant, isn’t it? ;P
The size about this little one is about 4 inches tall and 5 inches wide ( not counting the fur ). 100% handmade from head to toe using fluffiest fur fabric ^^ I will keep one for myself, hehe.
The tongue is not THAT big, but big enough for you to know that he is Poro. Maybe on next batch I can “enlarge” his tongue bit more? But for now, he looks cute and fluffy.
At the end, I wanted to show you a very cute animation created by League of Legends team; “Trials of the Poro” OMG, I fell in love with this little one. I hope you’ll enjoy this video and go play League of Legends (LOL)!
Have a great day <3 <3 <3

Hi guys! Today I wanna do a simple review on Rainbow Alpacasso from Amuse Japan! 😀 ♥
When i first saw the picture I was like ” OMG, I want that rainbow alpacasso!” later I found out, 1 set only comes with 1 rainbow alpacasso, so it is very precious and rare. I’ve been selling alpacasso for about 3 years? I never seen anything like this before. I think it is worthy to collect this one, specially rainbow one.
SHOP at Ruru Victoria – use RURUBLOG14 to receive 10% off
I’ve been staring at the picture for a month and a half before I receive the actual package. I was thrilled xD Look, aren’t they look cute on the picture? 😛
Here is the video that I made to show you how they look like
This is the size that I ordered for my shop, a 14cm tall alpacasso… Well, actually you have to call it llamas, because of their body shape. Llamas are usually skinnier than alpacas. So, naturally, these “llamas” are bit skinnier than the usual alpaca.
Aren’t they the cutest thing? I really liked the colors, they are very bright and vibrant Specially yellow and blue! Pink has the normal pink (^___^) LOOK at that rainbow cutie!!
isn’t it cute? huehuehue ^_^
It’s the most colorful collection that Amuse ever created! They usually have the beige, white and pink…rarely blue & yellow.
Ah, they also have the 7cm mini tiny ones, but I don’t want to get too many >_< It’s very small and you only can hang them on the bag or pencil bags.
I still have several rainbow series available in my shop, I’ll take all of them to my upcoming Anime Convention this Nov and I’m sure they will be gone very soon! If you are looking for a special gift for someone, you might want to consider this unique cute gift!
On next blog, I’m going to write a review of this cute bunny that I got from Japan! These bunnies will be available at Animate Miami this Nov, and I only got 4 pieces so…. ;P Unfortunately, I won’t be able to restock again because these are SOLD OUT in Japan back in July.
Thank you guys and I will be back soon! <3 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
♥ Korean Mini Handmade Clay Watch Review ♥
Hi guys! :3 I attended the biggest Anime convention in North America; Anime Expo few weeks ago! I was hoping that maybe in the future I can have a booth over there. 😛 Anyway, I had a GREAT time meeting lots of people including my favorite artists, I’m SO thrilled 😀 The trip was totally worth it!
I’ve been planning my upcoming shows since I came back. I wanted to attend main shows in Florida, maybe Georgia in the future. Uhm, we will see how it goes. As long I have you guys supporting me, I’ll do my best bringing cutest, most unique items to your con!
I want to update and change my blog function. Now I want to include my store item reviews. My own review. Of course, you’ll see lots of pictures and more details explanation of the item. I’m hoping by doing this, many of you will know more about the items or service that I’m offering.
Okie, here is my first review of kawaii but high quality watches from Korea.
OMG, they are SO pretty and well made!
These are very popular fashion watches in Asia. It’s miniature watch (short for mini watch). They use high quality materials to make watches. What is unique about the watch is that they HANDMADE each little miniature figures in the watch using polymer clay. All the clay are hand molded and hand painted by their artists.
Using genuine leather, stainless steel back, alloy case, Japanese movements, and Czechoslovakia crystal. They make beautiful piece of art for everyone to adore! <3
In the beginning, I was not sure about HOW well made are these watches, but after my first order, I was like “OMG, they are SO pretty and well made!” I’m GLAD that I became one of their distributor and I wish all of my customers own a piece of this kawaii watch! <3
Since they are fashion watches, they have tons of styles. New styles are released each month and phase out those aren’t so popular. So, you ALWAYS get to see the newest styles in my shop, selected by me. ^_^ Since there are A LOT of styles, I focus mainly on “cute” & “girly” styles.
Affordable ≠ Cheap Quality
Mini watch always wanted to impress their customers, so in the beginning of this year, they created an new line called “Ceramic Element”! Using finest imported ceramic, natural shell dial, pearls and Czech crystal diamond, created a beautiful but affordable ceramic watch!
Most of us know how expensive these ceramic watches are. I bought a Guess ceramic watch from Macy’s few years ago and I paid $350.00USD (not including tax -_-) for it. And the repair guy who “suppose” to change my battery ruined the rotating bezel! Seems like he didn’t know how to “rotate” -_- so my watch was ruined and I cried. >_<
BUT this Mini ceramic watches are AFFORDABLE! OMG, I meant, they aren’t cheap but compare to other ceramic watches, these are very very good price. Unless you are into name brand like Channel or Dior. >_O Affordable ≠ Cheap Quality, I totally agreed! Sometimes, you CAN find good quality items with good price! :3 and, I totally agreed that not all expensive stuffs are good. Like those expensive name brand shoes for example? gosh, I do not want to wear it and walk around. It looks pretty when you standing still but boy, when you’re start walking it HURTS. LOL
Anyway, this is my review on Mini handmade watches. I hope you liked it. Please visit my store to find out more about these watches.
Please take care~~
RuRu Victoria at Miami HUrricon 2014~
It’s been a while since my last post! After came back from Megacon I was working on my next convention…which is Hurricon.
Hurricon is small convention managed by University of Miami. I love this con, why? Because it was my FIRST ever convention as vendor. I liked atmosphere and the people. They are all super nice! This is why I decided to come back <3
I wanted to introduce many new collections/creation from my studio…I think I was trying too hard to accomplish everything BUT thank GOD! And with my Mom’s help I was able to finish what I wanted.
This was the first plush that I created. I wanted to introduce these cute bunnies to my customers and also want to know their feedback and reaction about the bunny. At the end, I can say, BABY BUNS are the cutest thing ever!! Everyone who came to my table loved these little buns :3 I guess, Baby Buns will be a regular collection in my shop!
Haru Taro was the 2nd plush that I created. I LOVED these furry creatures! They are very soft and fluffy. I made each one of them have different facial expression. I found out that a lot of guys liked these furry monsters. I’m very surprised
I only have 1 white left from convention, rest of the Haru Taro were sold. OH MY GOODNESS!! This is such a good news! I am so happy that customers are actually having fun with Haru Taro. When I make more, I’ll post a video on “How do you play with Haru Taro” xD
Aside from plush, I got the usual items such as alpacasso and amigurumi plush. I didn’t have time to make a lot but I managed to make 2, one for my customer’s order and 1 for the convention. :3
Besides selling, I had a great time at the convention. My family and friends came over visit me. They were next to my table and trying to help me xD I’m SO grateful that I got support from my family. They don’t look at me like a weird person ( maybe I’m already weird to them, LOL). My SIL even gonna help me at the convention in the future, WOW! :3
Here are few pictures that I took at the convention… didn’t have much time to take many selfie, but next time I’ll make sure to take TONS of pics for memories <3
My table <3
Haru Taro and I
Me as Makoto from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club ^^

♣ Usagi & Hitsuji amigurumi from Anime Karneval ♣
YAY!!!! I finally finished this custom order!! HAPPY~~~ There were some difficulties during the making these amigurumi, but thank God, I overcome these troubles
“Good evening Master, welcome home!”
I enjoyed very much creating these two anime characters! I love Karneval a lot, it’s sad that they are not making for 2nd season, really hope they will!
I was planning to crochet usagi (bunny) & hitsuji (sheep) outfits BUT something came up and I NEVER could make their hats straight… so blah -_- I gave up!!!! Instead of crochet their outfit, I used wool felt to make their cloaks and top hat. Since both cuties have very fancy hats, I used pearl beads and lace flowers to decorate their hats. For usagi’s cloak, I used mini buttons instead of felt to make cloak look better. Love it!
Fly usagi, Fly!
Took me two nights to finish both outfits. Hitsuji has prettier rose on his hat 😀 I don’t know why I didn’t give usagi one but he has a fancy white heart button, so I guess that counts too. >_<
These cuties are going to a very good home. I know their owners will love them and treasure them. ah~ ^__^ That makes me really happy <3 Thank you for liking my amigurumi ♥
I’m a bunny lover, so I took usagi more than hitsuji, hehehe.
“not fair!” hitsuji said
Don’t you agree? He SO adorable and I like his facial expression…so serious, haha.
Ok, ok, here is hitsuji….he’s a serious sheep who wants to protect his masters. 😀
I’m not sure if I want to make another set, but, I can make usagi ONLY through custom order. If you’re interested, send me a note or comment below. Please note that the working time will be at least 2 weeks per plush. Since I have a lot of pending orders and making new designs at the same time. >_<
Color manipulation. I really like this aquamarine color. I’m hoping that I can buy yarns with this color… D: I gotta shop really hard again! I WANT THIS COLOR~ >_<
Ah, almost forgot! I’ll attend Hurricon, a one-day anime convention on April 19th. I’m on the process design my new plush (nuigurumi)! They will featured in the convention. SO, if you are living in South Florida please, PLEASE come! They offer free admission, so please come and say hello! ^^ If you cosplay, I’d LOVE to take picture with you! I’ll be cosplay Makoto from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club! xD not the swimsuit version but the version where they wear jackets? Hopefully it’s not too hot for me @_@
Have a great day~ I’m going to finish another custom order now >_<
♥ Animate! Miami Anime Convention 2014 ♥
Haven’t update this blog for quiet some time now because I was busy preparing my first ever convention, attending Animate!Miami anime convention!
It’s a smaller convention compare to others. 2013 only had about 5000 attendees but report said this year they have about 10,000 attendees! Wow, I was happy to know that. Hopefully next year they will grow into a bigger convention!
Anyway, I had a great time… too bad that I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I was busy meeting new people and working ( really?lol). 😛 Me and my friend cosplay during the convention. It was fun! I enjoyed a lot and hopefully we can go to conventions to sell things together.
We were there the day before to set up the booth. We had NO idea what to setup or how to make our booth look nicer, but we did a fantastic job, isn’t?
Cute unicorn next to our booth, an excellent icon for convention! I’m considering to make one, this is TOO cute <3
Taking few pictures with my cute alpacasso! It was cold so earmuffs are PERFECT! 😀 Of course the fun part was when we cosplay ^^ Here are few cosplay pictures for you to enjoy 😀
This gift was from the vendor next to us. I was told that they were very excited because they saw my store name. I found out that they’re my Facebook followers!!! OH MY! Such as small world isn’t it? I LOVE these cute pins, they even gave me an alpacasso pin! I was wearing it during the whole convention, I LOVE IT Thank you thank you! ♥
Here is my Junko Enoshima cosplay! I took it while I had a little time. This cute mint flavor bear was sold to a lovely Mikasa <3
I made the little bird (On top of my head), a lot of people bought them, I’m very happy and surprised ^^
MIKASA & EREN!!!!!! Mikasa bought 3 of my amigurumi, I was like :O I am SO happy that someone liked my work! ♥
She’s ordering a custom made Usagi & Hitsuji (Karneval) from me!!! OMG! 😀 I’m working on it atm and will post WIP in here shortly.
This is Sushi Monster, she’s the guest cosplayer from the convention. She’s very pretty and skinny O__O oh my goodness, I wish I am THAT skinny >_< She bought a pink alpacasso from me. I was shy to ask her for picture but my friend encouraged me, so I ran to her for picture. She’s very friendly <3
One of the feature item from my shop in 2014 is Korean handmade Clay Watch! These babies are hot sale items in convention. Good results! I think I’m going to carry this item from now on in my shop. If you’re interested, you can visit my shop. ^^
Little snack for hardworking ladies <3 <3 Mr.Baird’s Gaijin Taiyaki was DELICIOUS! I don’t like chocolate BUT this chocolate toffee taste great! I think I can eat that again and again 😛 LOL!
This is taken at the first day of the convention by our friend Paul, from ManStudio Photography. Check out his facebook page, he’s an amazing photographer! Very nice guy! 😀
I thought would be fun to make a photo collage 😀 I had a best time ever selling at the convention. Not because it’s a business but I got a chance to meet new people, making new friends…oh and of course, lots of pictures!! xD
This is my favorite picture, kissing my tissue box alpacasso ^^ She’s available for adoption, man, this alpacasso wants to work for you ^___^ Who wants to adopt her, hehehe.
I want to thank my friend’s support during our short 3 day convention. Without their help, I won’t survive They are AMAZING ladies and I LOVE THEM! I’m still waiting for an open spot for our dinner date ladies *wink wink* :3
My next possible convention as vendor is Hurricon in April. I hope to have enough time to reveal new items. I will post in here as time progresses. OH OH, if you’re going to Megacon in March, please let me know so we can have pictures together and exchange coscard! ^__^
