I finally begin the making of topping of the cupcake. First is cherry.

 Cut a parts of an artificial flower.

 Put it in a lump of the paper clay(mix red acrylic paints with paper clay beforehand).

 paint it in redder acrylic paints.

Bond it to the cupcake with an epoxy adhesive.

Next is Cookie Nameko which is Main!

Mix the acrylic paints of the color such as the cookie with paper clay.

Make the chocolate tips with paper clay at the same time.

Put them together and make the main body of Cookie Nameko. It becomes like a cookie when we let the surface crack daringly.

After it completely dried, bond it to the cupcake with an epoxy adhesive.

Following this, make the stick cookie which Cookie Nameko has.

Well, let's confirm a design of Cookie Nameko in the apps. His(Her?) hands and feet are not cookies!

 Then let's use the epoxy pate for repair.

Knead this and make it thin. The hands and feet of Nameko are thin, but the epoxy pate for repair is reliable because it is firm.

And bond all together with an epoxy adhesive. The completion is imminent!

 Use silicon for caulking again. I use it as fresh cream this time.

Squeeze it like real fresh cream.

Finally, powder a pastel and paint Cookie Nameko as finish.


The days that production took are two days, and production costs are about 1,000 yen(about 10USD). We can very easily make it. Let's try!

I bought Nameko snack in a local supermarket.

Now, Nameko jumps out of a mobile game, and it becomes basic popular character. Some kind of Nameko products are sold even in the deserted country(like Akita Prefecture).

A sticker is attached to Nameko snack as freebie. Anything are cute design.

Of these, I liked Cookie Nameko in particular and flashed. "I can make the figure of Coockie Nameko with technique of fake sweets". Because he(she?) is a cookie and gets on cupcake.

The fake sweets are very popular in Japan. It is popular among women in particular, and a lot of know-how to handcraft it is shared.

Various How-to books are published.

Therefore I decided to make figure of Cookie Nameko with the technique of fake sweets.

 First, prepare a yellow silicon cup.

 Next, prepare white lightweight paper clay.

 Mix brown acrylic paints with paper clay and knead it until a color becomes uniform.

 Pile paper clay in the cup.

 Damage the surface of the paper clay with a worn-out toothbrush.

Completely dry it.

 Paper clay completely dries, take it off the cup once.

 Attach the bottom of the cup with silicon for caulking.

 Attach paper clay and a cup.

Next, add the strawberry source on this. It's glue stick for glue gun to become the strawberry source.

 Glue stick of various colors is sold recently.

 Pile it on paper clay.

 It is difficult to pile it like a source...

Warm the surface of glue by lighter. Then the surface melts and gets smooth.

Put crystals for the decorations in substitution for colorful chocolate spray. It became the gorgeous cupcake in this!

The fake cupcake was completed first of all. Next is a topping.
It leads to Vol.2...

What would CyberAgent which lost the promotion technique of the conventional Doraemon movie by LINE do? It's a "quest" in the social game.

CyberAgent runs town construction sim "Pigg World" for PCs. They carried out a quest to build the tree house of Doraemon.

The design of the tree house is related to the contents of the movie. They sold the items which came to be able to digest a quest easily.

Of course the Gacha system was utilized in it. Which items are very cute and have the power that a quest becomes easy.

 Furthermore, we cooked a lunch and the snacks which appeared for the movie and were able to behave to residents.

The tree house grew up steadily. And we got reward items whenever it grew up.


 And various building decoration.

I think that this promotion technique is more effective than the sale of items. Because, what we experienced by ourself remains in the memory for a long time. The enforcement period of this quest was two weeks. During this period, fans of Doraemon and heavy user of Pigg World logged in every day(I'm one of those, too), and bought many items to clear a quest.

By the way, I watched a new movie of Doraemon and it was very fun! Unfortunately it is shown only in Japan...


The new Doraemon movie uses two virtual worlds for promotion

The new movie of Doraemon "Doraemon: Nobita and the Haunts of Evil" is shown from the end of this week. Doraemon is a Japanese SF manga/anime series created by Fujiko. F. Fujio. Doraemon is the cat type robot which came over from 22nd century. He is a baby-sitter robot and helps primary schoolchild Nobita with various gadgets. The anime is broadcasted on every Friday, and the movies are shown every year. "Doraemon: Nobita and the Haunts of Evil" is 34th movie.

In late years the Doraemon movie does promotion in various Social Networking Service. Particularly, Cyber Agent's virtual world "Ameba Pigg" sold virtual goods of this every year. However, Doraemon changed to other virtual world this year. This is "LINE PLAY". This vividly expresses the present conditions of the Japanese Social Networking Service. Anyway, LINE is a king.

LINE PLAY shows an official avatar and room of Doraemon movie now. It expresses the world of the movie and is very cute.

In addition, two kinds of Gacha(Item vending machine) are established there, and fashion items and furniture items for avatars are sold. The kinds are very abundant, and LINE users can buy them for a free virtual currency. To be frank, this is more conscientious than Ameba Pigg until last year. In there, all Doraemon items were charged.

By the way, I already got two Doraemon items in LINE PLAY. Of course I do not charge it.

On the other hand, Cyber Agent is not with no measures. I write it about their new Doraemon promotion later.
