Moo moo moo... les petites vaches ^^. Just a quick bento post for today. I randomly pick one of my old bento pictures. Those cute little cows were inspired by akinoichigo's bento creation :D. Those little buddies were made of cheese, egg sheet, and beef salami cut with various little cutters. Use a cutter with bear shape to make the cow's head, then cut a little on the ear parts. The facial details were from black sesame seeds and nori cutouts. For the side dishes, I had blanched broccoli florets, beef cocktail, boiled sweet corn, semur tongkol with quail eggs, and tempeh perkedel.
Briefly in this post, I want to share a little tip about styling your bento photo. I used my craft magazine as my photo prop here. Yes, I love to make use of anything around my photo spot (a gathering room in my boarding house where we watch tv or do our assignment - there I can easily find newspaper, novels, magazines, softdrink bottles/cans, and stationery) as my photo properties. If I see a set of crayons (my boardinghouse mate's ;p), then I'll make it as my prop like you can see here hehehe. You don't always need to buy expensive fancy props for your photo. I sometimes use my novels, books, and even useless *oh they are NOT useless for me* things such as out-of-date newspaper, bubble wrapper plastic, and mini mandarin orange basket as my props that you can see here, here, here, and here. The thing I want to tell you is that you can use almost anything around you as your photo props (glasses, mobile phone, iPod, laptop, headset, your kid's toys? No problemo :D). Let's have improvisations with 'em ;D. All you need to do then is just to capture the photos from a good angle :D.
Have a wonderful day my dear friends :D
