MCM Expo May 2015

Batman Cowls!
My little online kawaii store, Kekiko, exhibited at MCM Comic Con this May and it was a busy weekend for myself and my helpers!
Kekiko Stall :)
We had a great time meeting lots of new faces. As well as familiar ones.

There were a lot of great cosplayers some which I’ve managed to take a photo of who had past the stall. However, there were so many that were missed since the hall was huge and many people missed small areas.

For Hello Kitty’s 10th anniversary, she turned a large booth area into a mini garden fit with a caravan, teepee, photobooth and Hello Kitty chairs. There was free face painting, hair chalk, photos and a phone charging station to all their visitors for their #OneKindThing campaign. I went ahead and got pink hair chalk, my face painted (didn’t really wash it off…) and photos from the photobooth.
We got our faces painted :P
We’d definitely venture back in October!

Expo weekend

Kekiko at MCM Expo

Kekiko launched on the weekend of MCM Comic Con on 25-27th October. This was a brand that I had started up myself and am planning to work on to bring adorable items handmade, hand designed or handpicked by yours truly.

Check out my interview with Jenny from Nerdgeist here!

The three day weekend was filled with people dressed up as interesting characters, people seeking anime merchandise or kawaii items or were just there for the comic con panel and games. I managed to play on the Pump it Up machine on the last day as they managed to fix it (it was down for two days).

Business was well and it was a lot of fun. My two cousins came and helped me out a lot during the weekend, which meant I was able to take a break and look around while they looked after my stall. Our best sellers were the cute head gear; I had an assortment of hair clips with ears on, bunny hats and caps with the avengers on. Everyone loved them!

Kekiko was also featured in Anime Picks!

Now that the expo is over I am focusing on getting the online store up and running. Its only a holding page at the moment since I’m working on the layout and product photos. If you want to be the first to know when we open go visit www.kekiko.com and enter your email :)

Announcement! New Store Launch at MCM Expo 2013

I’ve been meaning to start my own business for a while now but had never found the time to do it. After speaking to these motivational people who have made time for themselves to expand on their lives, it made me realise I was just procrastinating and stopping myself from achieving anything big.

“Chase your dreams”

So for MCM Comic Con tomorrow I will be there launching my new brand Kekiko. I will be there all weekend, from 25th – 27th October 2013! So come say hi!! We will be at stall W7!

We're near the front of the Expo!
I would also appreciate it if you would like my Facebook page as that would really help boost my morale and urge me to focus, plus work harder on this personal project.

Behind the Name

Keki PandaThe brand name was picked using my alias, Keki meaning ‘cake’ in Japanese since I absolutely love cake! I have a sweet tooth. Ko sounds like ‘co’, meaning company as in business or companionship. Therefore, put together it means Keki’s Company and also Keki & Friends. I have also named my two mascots, a couple of adorable little pandas, Keki and Kiko! So its all tying together and slowly being built upon. There is a lot to do and the range of items I’ve designed is small. I’ve just started to produce some hand made bookmarks for now and shall expand into more stationary, fashion and gift lines for the near future.

Wish me luck!

With Love,
Kekidoll xoxo

Organising a Dubai Themed Party

I recently joined the fun committee where our group plans fun corporate events for the whole office. This month we’ve decided to organise a party to celebrate a new office opening in Dubai. We decided to order a large selection of European food from local restaurants, hold a quiz related to the city and have a video based on Dubai showing in the background while we eat.

It was fun to plan and organise. We split the tasks between the four of us and each helped draw up questions, order food and choose which videos to show. However there were some alight alterations before the big day and some colleagues weren’t able to come. However I managed to salvage the numbers and create enough teams for the quiz to generate some competition (shame I couldn’t partake! Would have loved some Amazon vouchers.)

Food!

It was a really fun filled evening, everyone enjoyed themselves even though some of the answers given to me on my quiz slideshow were technically out of date and so were considered invalid. I managed to pick it back up though and entertain everyone as the quizmaster.

It was a very tight competition as the winners won by one point. There was also a bonus round where the points won were to be used as a tiebreaker so one team was saddened that their bonus points could not be used, as it would have won them the victory.

We're all nomming happily

After the the quiz we ate delicious European food from the local Turkish and Lebanese restaurant. A lot was left over due to the fact many people had go leave early. So more for me! I managed to eat it for dinner, lunch the next day and dinner also! Yum yum!

On another note, MCM Expo is a week away. I’m really excited to participate and am ready to greet the crowd in my unicorn onesie. If you see me there come say hi (I’ll be at store AP8 Near the N8 entrance)!

With Love,
Keki xoxo
