Vampire Mickey Bento

I'm sharing my last Halloween bento for this year. If you need more ideas, you can click HERE to check out all my past Halloween creations. I'm joining a Halloween bento hop today with my fellow Bento Bloggers & Friends, so do remember to click on the graphic at the end of my post for more Halloween bento inspirations.

For my last Halloween bento this year, I made a vampire Mickey. How I miss Halloween at Disneyland! We have not been to Disneyland during Halloween since IT started primary school, as October is within the school term. :(

Mickey was made from rice (orange rice was coloured with ketchup), nori, cheese, olive and strawberries.

Side dishes were honey wings, cabbage, grapes and strawberries.

Mummy Snoopy Bento

I did not have time for bentos or blogging due to the exams. I did not feel like making any as well, as marking and going through my boys' revision work always spoils my mood. -_- So happy that it's finally over today, and we can put our books aside for the year. I can't wait for the school holidays and our year end trip. :)

Another Halloween bento today, I only made another one more, had a few more ideas, looks like I have to save them for next year. I made Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as Mummies. The inspiration for this was from Bento4Bianca on Instagram.

Ingredients used to create Snoopy and Woodstock were rice, fettuccine, tomatoes, cheese and nori.

Side dish was a fast chicken and veggie stir fry. Hubby was not eating dinner that day, so I just cooked a one dish meal for my boys and I, lol. :P

Pooh Bear & Piglet in Autumn

I love the beautiful colors of fall. I love snowy white winter too. Unfortunately, it's summer all year round where we live, lol.

Taking a break from Halloween bentos to post an autumn themed food art. Pooh and Piglet are having so much fun in fall. Please ignore their proportions, I should have made Piglet a little smaller, I was lazy, so I just left it.

Pooh was made using rice coloured with mashed hard boiled egg yolk, crabstick and nori. Piglet was made using rice coloured with sushi seasoning, ham and nori. The leaves are cut out from egg sheet.

I added in one of Pooh's eyebrows digitally, I remembered making both eyebrows, I've no idea why it's missing in the photos. -_- Did you notice those autumn leaves in the pictures, those are real leaves the hubby brought back from Kyoto. I kept them in a book after taking this photo, they look much nicer flattened out.

Jack Skellington Bento

I first made Jack Skellington for Halloween 3 years ago. Till today, we have never watched the movie, The nightmare before Christmas. However, my boys are very familiar with this character, simply because there there is a theme ride in Disneyland which features him. Somehow, Halloween always reminds me of Jack Skellington, click HERE to check out similar creations of him from previous years.

I've to admit this was not my original idea, I had wanted to make a full bodied version of him this year. But I was making another bento for my book prior to this, and it took up more time than I expected. So I ended up making a simpler version of Jack Skellington instead. Never mind, I will make him again next year.

The food packed in this bento were honey chicken stir-fry and lettuce. There were also grapes and strawberries in the mini cauldron.

Jack is made from  just rice and nori, the bat is a cupcake pick.

Wednesday Addams Bento

It's so hard to wake up so early again today after the break. Doing revisions with my boys and marking their papers the past few days is giving me a headache. I can't wait for their exams to be over, have to hang in till next tuesday. Ganbatte!

Have you watched The Addams Family before? There has been many adaptations of it throughout the years. I'm not a fan of the series, I've only caught a few episodes here and there. My boys have never watched this before, so I showed them some pictures of Wednesday Addams when I made this bento.

Wednesday is made from rice, nori, cheese and ketchup. The side dishes in the other bento box were Japanese beef stew, gyoza, lettuce and strawberries.

Did you notice the spiders pasta in the bento box? Hubby helped me to buy them back from Kyoto. I'm not sure if they are available in Singapore, I've not really looked around for them here. If you know where to buy them here, please let me know. :)
