@todayintokyo, does this help with your bread cravings? I know this isn’t usually a selling point in our bread debates, but these ones are so wonderfully soft! I’ve been fighting the urge to buy them up… especially the baguette body pillow and slippers…

So this is really neat/funny. While browsing around for DQ Heroes stuff, I found out that Luida’s Bar, the Dragon Quest-themed restaurant in Tokyo made some drinks/desserts based on characters to promote Dragon Quest Heroes II last year.
The Angelo one is a cocktail (can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic) with Calpis/Calpico and strawberry soda with an apple garnish and a Timbrel of Tension/Mysterious Tambourine made out of chocolate. Japanese fans refer to Angelo jokingly/derisively as “Tambourine” since he gets relegated to using it later in the game.
The Maya one is a parfait with chocolate, milk tea pudding, and black sesame marshmallows for her… assets, and is topped with little silver sugar confectionery candies.
The Meena one is a fruit parfait made with mango and grapefruit gelato and topped with chocolate. Her crystal ball is made out of jelly (I think it’s boba/tapioca pearl but not 100% sure).
This has got to be my favourite of the whole week, I got a little lazy toward the end on perspective but it turned out how I wanted. This was heavily inspired by Monolith Burger from Space Quest 3 where I’ve wanted to draw Rick for aaaages. So it was a perfect opportunity.
You were never really good at it, you know. There was a naiveté to you that none of the ugliness could stain, as if you never truly believed in evil. It was what I liked best about you.
