If you have any fun food projects for me, contact me at AnnaTheRed[at]gmail.com Also if you’d like to use a photo of my bento in a magazine or book, please contact me before you publish.

Due to scheduling and current projects I am not accepting plush commissions at this time.

Also I am now accepting plush commissions! I am also NOT accepting commissions for trademarked or copyrighted characters. Unless you own or represent the owner of the copyrighted character please do not ask. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Email me a sketch or drawing of the plush with a description and I will give you a quote based on size and complexity. Quote does not include cost of materials. Once I’ve accepted a commission I will give you an estimated completion date.

Questions? Email me at AnnaTheRed[at]Gmail.com. Also follow me on Twitter! @TheAnnaTheRed

I love your castle crashers plush!!! Where can I buy these at? Do u sell them or can I buy somewhere else?? Thanks. I’m so impressed. You are really good


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar March 28, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Hi Staci,
I’m glad that you like my plush! Unfortunately, they aren’t for sale. I just make them and give them to the good people of the Behemoth. (just because they’re so awesome!) Maybe if fans ask them enough, they will make official plushes someday! ;)


CarlosNo Gravatar July 30, 2014 at 10:56 pm

Hey I’m just wondering is you can make a hatty plush for me my dad works for behemoth can please if that’s ok

Hi AnnaTheRed,

I understand that the ultra cute Raving Rabbid Mold is from ubisoft, do you have any idea where I can get them! I’ve been desparately looking for it but the search has been gloomy :/ My entire family are huge RRRabbid fans and I really want to make a Rabbid feast for them! Please do help!!


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar August 9, 2011 at 9:13 am

Chery, sorry for the late reply!
It’s so strange that I can’t find anyone using the mold except one of my blog reader. (She got it from her friend who works at Ubisoft) I’ve seen it on sale on Etsy ages ago, but that’s the only time I saw someone selling it. I’ve seen many people using a rabbit cake mold (for Easter, I think) and successfully made it into a Rabbid. So perhaps you can try that way.

Hi, I’m a big fan of your work and was wondering a few things. First will you be making more Alien Hominid plushes and second if so will they be for sale? Thanks!


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar September 19, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Sorry for the SUPER late reply to your question!
Unfortunately I won’t be making or selling Alien Hominid plushes in the future. Sorry!


chrisNo Gravatar August 23, 2011 at 8:44 pm

hello again, I just thought, could I do a blog on you and promote your good work and add a link to this site so people can find you etc.?




NinjaTurtleNo Gravatar August 30, 2011 at 4:21 pm

You should make a Kid plush, you know Kid from Bastion. :D At any rate I wanted to say that you are incredibly talented, haven’t seen such phenomenal stuff before. You’re also very beautiful (saw your pic with the people that made Bastion on tweeter, that’s how I saw your website) Anna The Red. Have a terrific day and keep up the fantastic work!!!

Daniel StokesNo Gravatar April 17, 2012 at 3:44 pm

When you say you are taking plush commissions, how much do you charge? Is it based on size, adorableness and so on.. (I’m from the UK so if you could also include if you internationally ship and all that jazz, that would be great)

Thanks :)


Eva LauNo Gravatar May 21, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Hello Anna san,
I want to make ultraman, can you teach me.

Hey AnnaTheRed,

I really love your Studio Ghibli work! Is it ok if I take some of the food pictures to tweet them? I will of course say they were made by you. It would be great :)

Thank you :)


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar August 19, 2012 at 11:26 pm

Yes of course! Glad to help spread love for the Ghibli world!


Miyazaki FansNo Gravatar August 22, 2012 at 6:46 am

Thanks a lot, that’s awesome!


Emma-leigh UndeadNo Gravatar August 18, 2012 at 11:49 pm

hi i am a massive fan of jhonen Vasquez i saw the shmee you made, is there any chance you could make one for me??? will pay cost plus shipping, also interested in anything else of jhonens you have created


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar August 19, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Sorry, none of my plushes or patterns are for sale. Shmee is fairy easy since it’s just a modified version of a Teddy bear so perhaps you can make one for yourself!


julesNo Gravatar August 20, 2012 at 5:39 am

Hi Anna,
I am reading your blog “Japan 2010″ a few days already (started to read that after I read your blog about the business trip 2012).
Just wanted to say that you write very well and your descriptions and details are amazing.
I almost feel like I’m in Japan when I read your blog, almost like I’m doing these stuff by myself and no doubt I will plan my next trip to Japan by your advices.
Thank you so much… It makes me very happy to read that and I look forward to read more about japan next time you’ll write.


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar September 3, 2012 at 11:37 pm

I never really thought that my writing was good at all, so I’m super flattered by your comment!! Thank you!


Scootie-chan~^^No Gravatar August 22, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Your plushies and bento are so amazing, I recommended you in my G+ circle. ^_^
Do you make teddy bear plush too? ^^


David ibbetsonNo Gravatar September 6, 2012 at 5:05 am

Hi there, I am cosplaying Zim soon, and I NEED one of your piggies!!
I read that they’re not for sale, but you don’t understand- I NEED one of your piggies… NEED.
Please please please sell me one?


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar September 6, 2012 at 9:09 am

Sorry, nope!


ThanhNo Gravatar December 28, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Anna- I just want to say, you are such an inspiration. Thank you for making these bentos so fabulously. And I just learned that you also live in San Diego, where I currently live! It’s so cool to know that such a celebrity is right around the corner from me. Thank you again for producing such beautiful pieces of food art!


BrandyNo Gravatar February 9, 2013 at 10:12 am

Hiya! I was looking through my newspaper this morning and found a paper on making heart shaped eggs. I recognized the photos used as yours and even went to confirm it. Are you aware of them using your photos? Just wanted to let you know about it.


MirandaNo Gravatar February 25, 2013 at 7:58 am

Hi, I just came across a picture of your moose from invader Zim plushie, I wanted to purchase it or one very similar and was wondering how much you would charge for one. Thank you. ^_^


MirandaNo Gravatar February 25, 2013 at 8:02 am

Hi, sorry, I just read your info. Noticed that you do not do any reproductions. :( if I could draw out a sketch of a cute little moose could you maybe make a plush of it.? It’s a gift and these are Soo cute.


RobinNo Gravatar March 25, 2013 at 11:29 am

Hi Anna,
Wanting to know if I can share your hard boiled egg chicken on my blog with attribution and a link to you. Very cute!


LotusMarieNo Gravatar March 29, 2013 at 7:57 pm

Hi Anna,
I’m a fan of your website! All of your bento creations are so cute! Just recently I came across Japanese Fruit Sandwich, and I want to ask you if you can post a recipe about it. Could you, please?


JulianNo Gravatar April 5, 2013 at 8:21 am

Hi Anna,
I have seen the Songbird plushie and just can say that u did great work! :) As Bioshock is one of my favorite games and I am at the moment not able to play it because of learning for my A-level exams I would like to get the Information whether I can buy one Songbird plushie and then of course where or to ask whether you can give me a blueprint so that my grandmother can produce one. :D

Greetings from Germany



brendanNo Gravatar April 5, 2013 at 9:10 am

Hi Anna, I’m French and I’m a big fan of your work especially the Songbird plush you made for Irrational games.
As Julian, I really want to buy a Songbird plushie. I offer you 200 $.

Greetings from France



JlovelaceNo Gravatar April 5, 2013 at 4:50 pm

Your songbird plushie is fantastic! I would love to support your work and purchase one. Congratulations on the response from Kenand the team at Irational. let me know if I can commission a songbird!


SanagiNo Gravatar April 5, 2013 at 8:10 pm

Oh lord that Songbird plush is the cutest thing I have ever seen, and I’m sorely tempted to commission one. Just…if we can’t exactly do so with money due to the issue of copyright, could there possibly be a workaround to this? Like say, game gifts in exchange? I’m being quite serious, but I understand if that isn’t an option either.


RODICA-STEFANIANo Gravatar April 8, 2013 at 7:46 am



TamoraNo Gravatar May 22, 2013 at 9:35 am

I love the bioshock plushie!! If only they would mass produce it, i would buy one and keep it forever. Songbird is one of the greatest characters to fall in love with. You did a reallllly great job!


DianeNo Gravatar August 14, 2013 at 12:25 pm

I just realized that I’ve been following your blog via bookmarks/RSS feed for nearly 4 years and I’ve really left a comment. I love your food, especially how carefully you show each step like in the herring and pumpkin pot pie. And thank you for sharing photos from conventions and Japan trips!


RobertNo Gravatar August 18, 2013 at 10:13 am

Hey Anna,

Loved your BioShock bento! I featured your bento on my blog! Keep up the great work!


Jeremy WoodNo Gravatar February 15, 2014 at 9:15 pm

Anna, I was wondering if you were Japanese. I found some pages of your website from when you went to the Ghibli museum. I am interested in planning a trip to Japan with my wife and two kids specifically to go to the museum. Of course we would also enjoy the rest of Tokyo, etc. Do you have any suggestions on how to plan a trip like that? Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks.


KyraNo Gravatar May 10, 2014 at 2:53 pm

Have you ever considered selling your Songbird pattern? Because OMG this is the best Spngbird plushy I have ever seen, and I’m just dying to make one (for myself not for sale).


KyraNo Gravatar May 10, 2014 at 2:54 pm

*Songbird, sorry about the spelling error


leiNo Gravatar October 13, 2014 at 9:52 pm


I just came across your site and your creations are outstanding! very creative!!! Thanks for sharing…I’m inspired to make my own^^…I wanted to make one perfect for I and my boyfriend’s 10th anniversary… Could you give me an idea? hahaha …. I’m excited to try it,^____^


TatianaNo Gravatar October 22, 2014 at 9:19 am

Anna I have an urgent question! Halloween is approaching and I’m dying to dress up like the bear from Castle Crashers, and I saw those cute hats you did, I wanted to ask if you have them on sale or something? :o
And if not, do you know any page, website or place where I can get a costume of the bear :c ? I really need to act quickly before time runs out T^T.
Thank you very much :D !


AnnaTheRedNo Gravatar October 28, 2014 at 8:12 pm

Unfortunately, I don’t sell any of my stuff. I think I’ve seen someone selling them on Etsy before but not sure if they still do. Good luck!


benNo Gravatar April 4, 2016 at 12:37 pm

I absolutely love your work, but unfortunately I live in the UK, but I cant get a behemoth chicken, because the postage is so high, but I love your work and hope to get one some day
