Photo Friday: Giant UFO catcher Arpakasso Alpaca post of Love

Before leaving Japan I had to capture some shots of the illusive Arpacasso Alpaca for memories. These pictures make me happy just looking at them. :yayblush: (previous Alpaca post here)

      September 17, 2011 / 9:47 pm and searching for アルパカ and using a shopping service like japonica is your best bet ^^

    Oh my gosh, so much cuteness! @_@ I absolutely adore the ones with eyelashes!! I hope you can snap more photos of them when you go back to Japan! :)

    Ahh, if they packed the arcades in the US with these I’d constantly go broke trying to win them, LOL!

      I like those, too! I hope to and to get more, but we’ll see! I’m so bad at UFO catchers.

      It’s a shame that UFO catchers haven’t trickled into the US, or the good ones. There’s so many cute characters around now!

    I saw an alpaca sling bag at a bazaar recently and I super hated myself for buying something else before that. I was broke by the time i got to that stall! :(

      Awwwh, but it’s cool there are so many goods out there!

    Haha so cute :korila:
    Reminds me of our adventures in Arpakasso land XD

    My friend just got back from Tokyo but couldn’t find any Alpacas and he looked everywhere.
    I think their time has come to an end. Sad but true :cry:

      Really…? Lucie just got Alpaca slippers and they had that otome line recently too. Maybe he was looking in the wrong arcades?

    • Mitsu
      September 17, 2011 / 11:28 am

      I will be having some of those in a giveaway soon so stay tuned!
      Awwwh sometimes UFO machines don’t have as amazing stuff. It also depends on your location.

        We have a few purikura places with the UFO machines here in Australia. Sydney is probably a lot better than Melbourne… unfortunately I live in Melbourne and so there’s only a limited few.. but still quite cute :) But I imagine they’re ridiculously more expensive to play here than over in Japan! Heck, we have $18 AUD purikura machines, when I can clearly see the machine is a 400yen machine *cries*

          Ouch 18 dollars I don’t think I could do that! So painful!!

      September 17, 2011 / 11:27 am

      I’ve won a few! That time I won tails ^^

  10. September 16, 2011 / 10:58 pm

    !!! So much cuteness! So much color! I would have tried to get as many colors as possible!

    So cute! ;A; :hearts:
    Where were these pictures taken? I haven’t found many alpacas so far… :rila:

    • Mitsu
      September 17, 2011 / 11:26 am

      I took them about 4-5 months ago, right before I left. They’re hard to find outside of Ikebukuro and Shinjuku/Kabukicho game centers for some reason!

  12. September 17, 2011 / 5:01 am

    They’re so cute!! I think my one regret from my time in Japan is not obsessing over the UFO catchers enough to get one of those! :worries:

    • Mitsu
      September 17, 2011 / 11:23 am

      They are not that popular outside of Tokyo. It was hard to find them in Osaka catchers. So if you were out of Tokyo you might have had a hard time…? So that’s a positive? Maybe? hehhee

  13. September 17, 2011 / 8:52 am

    I’m so in love with the Alpacas ;A;
    I wanna have one soooo badly T_T

      I’ll be giving away a tail alpaca (top picture) in a new giveaway soon! Maybe you can get it! :heart2:

  14. September 18, 2011 / 1:41 pm

    i’ve never seen those before~omgosh those are super cute!<333 ahh a mob of cutenessss

  15. September 19, 2011 / 5:48 am

    They’re cuuuuuuuuute!

    I love when you post pictures of UFOs in Japan!! :yayyay: They’re sooo awesome! The ones we have out here really suck and are only really out there to get your money. It’s rare any of the gifts are cute at all.

    My favorite ones are the ones with the fluffy tails :korila: Wish I could get my hands on a few of those! They would make great gifts for girls, and I’d totally wear one or two on my purse!

  16. September 27, 2011 / 11:14 pm

    I’m currently selling these if anyone is interested ;)
