Mini Couture: Interview with Anime Doll Designer Kev Yiu


I call him “The father of Dolls” as Kev Yiu is the creator of beautiful custom Anime Dolls! They are so amazing that his Doll Label “Mini Couture” has spread all around the social Networks. But this is only one Passion of the very popular and successful Fashion Designer. Let me first give you an summary of how everything has started:

Kev Yiu is a Hong Kong designer who studied in England and graduated with triple distinctions in Fashion and Clothing. In 2006, he began his career in bags and garments and launched his own brand “Sovereign romance” in England as a foreign designer.

Having studied in England for years, Kev was very much inspired by the European fashion culture and firmly believes that fashion is much more than a business, but it’s also an art form which can be translated into a visible language to express his point of views. His aim is to bring Love and Romance into the fashion industry as well as peoples’ daily lives.

His designs have been strongly appreciated and worn by celebrities in Hong Kong such as Sammi Cheng, Twins, Myolie Wu, Ivana Wong, Fiona- Sit & Kary Ng Etc. And recently he was selected as one of the “Rise & Shine” Fashion influences by Hong Kong well known magazine “Jessica Code”.


Geeks Life Luxembourg: Mr Yiu, thank you so much for giving us the time to talk about your beautiful handcrafted dolls. They are really amazing and have become quite popular, that’s why we have become curious about their origin.

1.  But actually this is just a small part of your passion and talent as in fact you are a fashion designer and creator of the brand Kevolie?


Mr Yiu: Yes indeed, I am a fashion designer in real life but I was grown as an animation lover, making dolls is like a hobby for me to escape from my intensive work  🙂

2.  You started making use of your dollmaker talent and sharing it with others? How did that happen? What was the main inspiration?

Mr Yiu: I learnt how to make puppets when I was studying in England and I have always been very keen on dolls since I was little and I am a Sailor Moon doll collector as well.

Mr Kev Yiu’s impressive Sailor Moon doll collection. Over 200 dolls.

3.   I’ve heard about your huge Sailor Moon vintage doll collection. How many official Sailor Moon dolls do you own now and how long did it take to collect them? 

Mr Yiu: As I mentioned I am a Sailor Moon doll collector, I have collected over 200+ vintage dolls from different countries, mostly japan, for the Japan edition I am still missing the non-taking Jupiter from season SS and the deluxe Moon set B from season S, I would be willing to exchange them with my work if anyone is willing to hahaha! It took me around 7 years.


Every Doll is handcrafted with so much passion and Love. This is what makes them so special and gives every one a heart and soul.


As far as I can recall, about two years ago I accidentally encountered a clip showing how custom dolls are made and I was like why not giving it a try?

So I purchased some second handed dolls and started practicing on hair rooting and face painting , sewing dolly dresses has never been a problem for me as I have been making dresses for human for over 10 years .

Every doll is handmade with love
The place where his beauties come to life…

4. By that occasion, what is your favourite Sailor Moon character and why?

Mr Yiu: I like the villians most as they have wonderful and complicated designs.

5. Let’s get back to your dolls now. How long have you been making them?

Mr Yiu: I have just picked up this hobby for 2 years but my ultimate goal is to launch my own fashion doll line, but I still need more practice to achieve that.

6.  With your experience being a designer you got many abilities for making the dolls clothes. But how about hair and face? Did you visit a workshop?

Mr Yiu: I basically learn from trial and failure and YouTube (thanks for all youtuber!)

7.  Imagining your full time job as fashion designer at Kevolie, how do you even manage to find any time for this passion? Must be very hard?

Mr Yiu: I only have time to get the dolls done when I have a day off, or any sleepless night will do lol!

8. And how long does it take you to finish a doll?

Mr Yiu: For simple ones it takes around 12 hours but for complicated ones I can spend up to 45 hours.


9. How can your fans order a doll handcrafted by you? Do you have an online shop?

Mr Yiu: I am planning to launch an online platform selling fan made and originals, stay tuned. For now they can direct message me via Facebook 😊



Thank you Mr Kev Yiu for giving us the chance to take a look at your beautiful work and we hope that we will see more of your beautiful dolls in the future!



Until the online shop launches and for further information about his beauties, contact:




Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – Kyoto

Konnichi wa minna!

The last but beautiful stop during my Japan trip is Kyoto! It was the most beautiful city I have visited so far, very traditional, with so much nature and many temples and shrines that give you so much peace in your heart.

First of all, I’d like to show you pictures of Kyoto’s beautiful temples and shrines. Of course there are many others but unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to visit them all …


Washing your hands before prayer is a Japanese tradition
When Japanese people pray, they can make a wish and write it on a small paper or piece of wood
These small wooden boards are called Ema
This seems do be a traditional ritual but unfortunately I couldn’t find out the meaning of it 😦
A beautiful small Japanese shrine
The entrance of a Japanese palace in the middle of a park in Kyoto
The temple itself


I love these Japanese gardens, so peaceful and green …


Japanese cemeteries look quite different from the ones we know in Europe. More crowded, but very peaceful though …
The beautiful view over Kyoto from a cemetery near the temple on a mountain.
Do you remember these traditional Japanese kimonos from my first blog entry? They are seen all over Kyoto and tourists can rent them in many shops.
The famous Teramachi shopping street in Kyoto


So many small shops with traditional Japanese food. I loved exploring them!

Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – Tokyo One Piece Tower

Every one knows that Tokyo Tower is a City Highlight for Sightseeing in Tokyo. But for Otakus, there is much more than just a wonderful sight above the City. Let me show you that part of the tower where you can go on adventure with Captain Luffy

and his Crew of the famous anime ONE PIECE!


On the Ground Floor of Tokyo Tower you find a large One Piece themed shop with lots of merchandise and interesting exposed pieces of the series.
In this shop you find everything that a One Piece fan heart is longing for…. 😀
Going Mary
This is kind of funny- Captured Usopp xD
This is a must-have-been for every One Piece Fan: Sanji’s Restaurant!
Taste the love out of every dish in Sanji’s own restaurant ❤
A real highlight of the tour is this room where you find the whole crew in lifesize scale having a big party and having fun together.


You will never feel closer to your One Piece heros than here…
Additional decoration like glass bottles and realistic looking food make the scene even come more to life…
They are all partying hard XD

Every one’s having a good time but these two guys are arguing as usual 😀 Curious what they could be fighting about…
I love this little guy ❤

My favorite one: Brook wants you to fight a zombie by putting a tennis ball in his mouth. xD
Sanji in the kitchen. This was really cool and the pot was boiling!
Menemenemenemeneeeee!! Someone should pick up the snail 😀



Surely every One Piece Fan remembers this scene where your heart broke in pieces… even worse seeing it in Life-size… 😦


I hope you enjoyed the tour through the One Piece Tower and I really recommend to visit it when you ever get near by ^^

Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – Japanese Theme Cafés

Konnichi wa minna!

I am sure you already heard about Theme Cafés in Japan? These are Cafés about a special topic where they serve food and drinks related to this design.

I will introduce two different types of theme cafés to you today, although there are much more. In Japan, there are no limits to fantasy and fancy ideas of cafés 🙂

Let’s start with the typical maid Café!

At Maid Cafés, you are served by Maids, wearing cute outfits and hairstyles. You can take pictures with the girls by paying a small account.
Maid Cafés are mostly designed with cute furniture and colorful wall decoration, kawai (cute) stuff and have a stage for the Maids to make a cute show. Often they sing and dance.
In Maid Cafés everything is kawai :3 even food. It often looks too cute to eat and is always as sweet as it looks like 😀


When your kawai food is served, the Maids often play games with you or give you small gadgets to entertain the customers and give you an all-round “Kawai” Feeling. It is always a pleasant experience and is highly recommended by me 😀 (Photos taken at MaiDreamin Akihabara)

Check out the Theme Song and Dance of MaiDreamin! It is really cool and you hear that song all around Akihabara 😀


The next Theme Café I experienced myself was a Cat Café! In this café you don’t pay your drinks and food, you pay for the time you spend. It is all you can drink and counted per hour or every 20 minutes you spend in the café. The main topic is cats, so there are cats running around free and you can pet them. If they need their free space, the café has many possibilities to climb onto a higher point of view where the visitors can’t reach them.

So many places to hide and take a nap for the little fur balls 😀 You can watch them and have e nice cup of tea.
If you wish to feed the furry little friends, you have the possibility to buy some treats at the café. It definitely increases their interest for you 😀
In Cat Cafés you have got some rules to follow: The fur balls are used to visitors, but have their own mind. You are not allowed to lift them or carry them around. Also food brought from outside is prohibited. They have also very strict hygienic rules as washing hands, taking of the shoes before entering…
If you follow those simple rules and are not allergic to these little fluffy guys, you will definitely spend a good time at the Cat Cafés. (Photos taken at Mocha Cat Café Shibuya)

Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – The Story of Hachiko


Have you ever heard of the famous dog Hachiko? Surely you have, as he has been very popular since the 1920s. He actually became so famous that his story has been adapted unto the screen several times already.


spiegel de


For the ones who don’t know, let me tell you the story of this unbelievable faithful dog…

Once upon a time, in 1924, a Japanese professor in agriculture science at Tokyo University named Ueno Eizaburo adopted a small Akita puppy. He called him Hachiko or Hachi and soon the two of them became best friends.


Hachiko as a puppy, only a few weeks old …


Hachiko waiting for his friend at Shibuya Station


As Hachiko grew older, he started to memorise the times when his best friend Eizaburo went to work and when his train from work returned at Shibuya station in Tokyo. So he began to bring him to the train station and waited for him to return in the evening every single day.

It’s a very sad story that gained a lot of attention, inspiring many people to visit Hachiko and give him treats. They called him “Chuken-Hachiko” which means faithful dog.










On the left: Shibuya station in the 1920s, on the right: Shibuya station today

But one fateful day, when Hachiko was only two years old, he was sitting as usual at the exit of Shibuya station but his best friend didn’t come home. Eizaburo had died  unexpectedly by a cerebral haemorrhage at work.

Hachiko was adopted by a member of the Ueno family but he still didn’t give up hope for his buddy to return. Throughout the rest of his ten-year-old life and until his death in 1935, he waited at the exit of Shibuya station every single day grieving for his best friend, who would never return to him…

Hachiko died alone in the streets near Shibuya station. Many people were grieving for him as he was loved by the citizens of Shibuya.


Hachiko Memorial in front of Shibuya Station

In honour of him several memorials were built such as the one in front of  Shibuya Station Exit and the one next to Eizaburos tomb at Aoyama Graveyard in Tokyo.
Memorial of Hachiko at Eizaburo’s tomb


So in the end the two inseparable friends were finally reunited and can rest in peace forever.

Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – Akihabara

Konnichi-wa minna!

Today I am going to show you the part of Tokyo that makes every Anime-Boy and -Girl’s heart beat faster: Akihabara! You find everything you need, from Anime figures and plushes to dolls, pillows, clear files…

Akihabara is also popular for Anime Second-hand shops, where you can find some very rare treasures 🙂 Let me give you a glance of Tokyo’s Anime paradise!


In Akiba (short version of Akihabara) everything is anime-themed. Even building decorations…
My first reaction arriving at Akiba was just over-excitement. So much to explore…
It took us three full days to see most of Akihabara, as there are many shops several floors high…
Just a small impression of an Anime Shop…
Taito Stations are the most popular for UFO Catching! Some machines contain figures, others plushes or other anime goods. I can’t say which one is the most easy to handle, as I am very bad at all of this 😀
I saw that it is indeed possible to figure it out well, but it needs a lot of practice and 100 Yen coins 😀
These Pikachus are just too kawaii (cute)!!
Do you remember the Gashapon machines I told you about? In Akiba you’ve got plenty of them so that there are even shops specialized to these little Gashapon balls!
Second-hand shops in Akiba. For me the most interesting ones. You can find very rare items and even Anime merch in very good condition but less expensive. Really worth visiting!

IMG_5462I hope you enjoyed the small trip to Tokyo’s Anime heaven!

Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – About Japanese Culture

Konnichi wa minna! (Hello guys)

I had the chance to travel through the beautiful country of Japan during the last two weeks and I wanted to give you some impressions I got about this beautiful landscape and culture. At First, I will give you a brief impression of the country and its culture, before I give you a deeper sight to different Cities and places I got to explore ^^.

Traditional Japanese Houses are kept small, made of Bamboo and wood. They are mostly seen in smaller cities or country sides. I saw a lot of them in Kyoto.


A great part of the Japanese Culture that many of us really appreciate is Anime and Manga! There are so many different Anime types and much merchandise for every taste.
As Anime and Manga makes a big part of the Japanese Culture, you can see it spread everywhere throughout the cities. For example on buses and trains.
This is something I have only seen in Japan and it’s really cool 😀 Ufo-Catching! It is all about trying to catch an Anime Good by grabbing it. One try is 100 Yen. But it is quite tricky.
Gashapon machines are also quite popular in Japan. You see them everywhere, especially in Akihabara. For the cost of 200 to 400 yen you can get a plastic ball containing a sweet little toy. There are many different types to collect.
One of the biggest passion of many Japanese people: Pachinko Halls. They are countless and spread all over Japan. Many Anime Themed Gaming Machines building long lines give occasion of spending your money in a playful way. It might be similar to our casinos.


These “Koi no bori”  are decorative and traditional Japanese flags in shape of a carp and exist in many different colors. Captured at the Entrance of Tokyo Tower.
Your surely have seen these little dudes before, Japanese carps called “Koi” They are very appreciated in Japan and mostly quite expensive.
If you ever make a trip to Japan, you will see many people wearing these mouthprotection. There are different reasons why they are worn: Because of self-protection against infections, or to prevent others of your own infection. Japanese people are very hygienic and protective. Even if it might look weird for us, I think it is quite effective.
A small Graveyard shrine.
You might have seen Japanese Graveyards in Anime. Compared with European ones they seem very crowded as Japan has a much higher population. Usually, if someone dies, they are burnt and their ashes are buried in “Haka“, which mean family Graves.
On the Gravestone itself is only written the family name. Small pieces of wood with dedications to every family member, the “ihai” are placed in front of the Gravestone.
85 % of the Japanese people are Buddhists. They make their prayers at Buddhist shrines and temples.
Many shrines or temples are decorated with “Chõchin“, Japanese Lanterns usually colored in white or red made of Japanese “washi” paper. You can buy lucky charms and protective goods.
I absolutely love these traditional Japanese clothes. These are Kimonos mostly worn by “Maikos“. Maikos undergo a five-year training of dancing, singing and playing traditional Japanese insruments, just as the “shamisen” to entertain people during a traditional tea ceremony. It is a very hard training.


Japan is also very popular for its Cherry Blossoms. The Japanese call them “Sakura” and use them as an ingredient for Food and Drinks as in beauty. Cherry Blossom Tea is very tasty.
A traditional Japanese Sword is called “Katana“. They are very old and popular of the Japanese Swordsmen “Samurai”. There are many differtent types.
In Japan, many Restaurants show samples of their dishes in windows. These are usually plastic made and look almost like real. Very convenient for tourists, if they can’t read the Japanese writing, they can choose their dishes from the windows.
Now I am going to introduce some Japanese food to you. In Japan, traditional food is mostly fresh-made and hand-made. Often you can watch the preparation.
These fish shaped cakes are usually filled with red soy bean paste or other sweets like chocolate or jam. They are called “Taiyaki
At “Candy Show time” a candy shop in Japan, you can watch people make the traditional “Kintaro-ame” candys which you can purchase in different colors and shapes.
They are shaped to long tubes and then cut to small roud pieces. Mostly made of colored sugar.
This was captured in Kyoto in a very traditional bakery. A man making cookies with Japanese black beans. They are quite tasty.
Food in Japan is usually not expensive but often freshly made, what makes it so special and tasty.
You surely have seen this dish before. A traditional Noodle Soup called “Ramen“. It is served in a big bowl, containing Japanese noodles, meat, seaweed, eggs and vegetables.
Another Japanese Food tradition which is very similar to our well known Barbecue. The “Yakiniku“. I have tried it myself. You can choose out of different meats and prepare it over a fire by yourself. Nice experience 🙂
This is one of my favorite Japanese food. It is called “Tenpura“. Fried shrimps, fish or vegetables that are also often served with Ramen.
Ever seen Anime characters eating these? Sure, as they are very popular especially for teenagers. Octopus Balls “Takoyaki” usually toppd with soy sauce.
This is one of the main ingredients for any dishes in Japan next to Soy Beans: Rice. So many dishes and desserts are made with rice, like Sushi or…
…these famous snacks called “Onigiri“. They are filled with fish or meat.
Next to Soy Beans and Rice, Japanese people eat very much fish and sea food. They can fleshly be purchased at Japanese Food Markets.
Another very traditional good of Japan is Rice Wine. It is often served at meals. Different from Chinese Rice Wine, it is less strong in taste and alcohol. They call it “Sake“.


Well,  that’s it for now. I hope you got a small impression of Japanese food and Culture. I will show you more of my Japanese Adventure next time.

Ja nee! 🙂


Interview with Manga-ka Nao Yazawa


Nao Yazawa (谷沢 直, Yazawa Nao, born on July 29) is a Japanese manga-ka born in Tokyo, Japan. She discovered her passion for drawing already in her childhood and studied Chinese History before she got to publish her first manga arts.

She worked on several stories until 2000. One of the most famous was the shojo story Wedding Peach, which is about teenage girls becoming love angels and saving the world against demons. The manga was soon published as an animated series which has been very popular and loved by many fans until today.

In 2003, she released the shojo manga Nozomi, a story about a girl who makes a wish upon a falling star that leads her to a demon who teaches her about love. It was the first manga she drew for English readers.

In 2010, she released Mizuki. The story is about a teenage girl who transforms into a devil whenever she gets angry and must fight against evil monsters. In 2011, she released Moon and Blood, which is about a teen vampire boy who lives with a family.

In 2012, she began teaching classes on how to make manga in Tokyo as well as teaching overseas through Japan Foundation Toronto. In 2013, she published her autobiographical four-panel manga Go-Go Nao-P in English. Her most recent work is called “The isolated zone” which talks about a post-apocalyptic world.


Geeks Life Luxembourg: It is a great honor for the staff of Geeks Life Luxembourg to do  an interview with you, Yazawa-sensei, and we want to express our deepest thanks.


At first, let’s talk about your current work.

  1. What role does Chinese history, which you’ve studied, play in your work? 

Yazawa-Sensei: Nothing specific. I was interested in history, anthropology and sociology and decided to choose history for university. Just pure interested, but I thought studying history would give me some ideas about stories and characters of manga. Choice for chinese history is no specific reason. It was less popular than Western history. (In Japan, history is separated in Japanese history, Eastern history (Chinese history) and Western history.)

2.   You currently teach manga classes. Have you noticed any differences between Japanese students and those overseas?

Yazawa-Sensei: Non-Japanese people have disadvantage compared with Japanese people. I think it’s because the time when they have started to read manga and the contents of their first manga. There are many manga for kids in Japan, simple and easy ones. Then it gets complicated, with sophisticated expression little by little, along with growing up. So many Japanese get basic method of manga without knowing, which non-Japanese people struggle to get sometimes. It’s especially clear the field of composing, storyboard (panel work) part.

3.   Your current work, The Isolated Zone, is very different from your previous ones. How did you come up with the plot? Do you have similar projects planned for the future?

Yazawa-Sensei: This is not my new work, rather old work – it is non-commercial work, started as Dojinshi. In a way it is my oldest work because when I started to draw the work, I was university student and it’s before my debut (although it is Dec. 2010 when I finished). So in a way, you can say it is my true taste. I made it just as a hobby – what I wanted to draw. (The very beginning, I did it for a doujinshi my friend started. It was focused on Fantasy/SF, so she asked me something Sci-Fi and that was my answer.)

I still have some more story idea about the series, or something similar. If there is no order/limit, I might make something like that. But I also love to draw light touch comedy, slapstick type gag, like I’m doing at Coffee Party project.

Now let’s focus on one of your most famous works that is still very loved by many fans over the world, Wedding Peach.

  1. How did you get inspired to create Wedding Peach and especially the character designs? 

Yazawa-Sensei: It is not my original, as you know, I have Sukehiro Tomita, he created original concept and Kazuko Tadano designed characters. Her design is sort of proto-tpy (very anime), so I gave some changes for Manga (Discussed it with my editor and chief editor). Momoko’s painted hair (black hair), school uniform were done with strong insistence by Chao’s chief editor, for instance. (I wasn’t completed agree with it, though. lol) The visual appearance was based on Kazuko Tadano’s work, and basic concept had done by Sukehiro Tomita. But I interpreted them to move them as my characters. I think during my interpretation, the concept would have been changed.

The concept is flowers, frills, dresses and young girls – so I checked many magazines for young girls and Wedding. Since it was a total unfamiliar field to me. My editor gave me “Bridal” Magazines.


2.  In your opinion what makes the Wedding Peach girls stand out in the world of shojo heroines?

Yazawa-Sensei: We didn’t try to be any specific. At least I didn’t. The three (4) characters are typical anime-shojo group characters, especially Momoko. No ordinary girl but very typical anime girl. I wanted to put weight on story/character part, that what I cared. If a girl fell in love with someone, there must be a reason. Not because he is good looking, not because he is smart, nor “destiny” person. There must be something special. It might make Wedding Peach different from others. 

Wedding Peach is Magical fighting girls story, so there are enemies, there is fight, save something and so on…but I tried to describe characters personality and the process how it’s going to change, especially building relationship. If this part could have got fans attention, I’m pretty happy.

3.  Many fans wanted to know why the anime story ended after the 4th episode of Wedding Peach DX even if it seemed like an open ending.

Yazawa-Sensei: Just because of commercial reason, budget. It’s not sold well enough to continue. The producer had tried, he said to me and was planning but he couldn’t.

4.  Wedding Peach celebrated its 20th anniversary and many fans are hoping for a remake, continuation or new merchandise. But until now, nothing’s been announced. Do you think there could be a chance for something like that or should the fans enjoy the already existing story?

Yazawa-Sensei: Again, simply commercial reason. Not enough fans voice to make new series, unfortunately. KSS got in charge for the anime making, but the company got bankrupt and there is no more. It might be one reason why it’s hard to make sequence. (I don’t know, though) 

For some reason, the series got popular in Germany and Korea – especially in Korea. Some new merchandise were released there, such as smartphone cases… etc.

5.  Ai Tenshi Densetsu Wedding Peach was transformed into an animated series. Were you happy about the way the anime turned out or would you have changed anything?

Yazawa-Sensei: Wedding Peach was a so-called “media mix project”. Anime was the plan from the first, but it was hard (We had problems to get a toy company sponsor) and we were almost giving up – it was almost the last minutes all problems were cleared. Yes, we were so happy and so busy because of it. 

Because Anime and Manga walked different ways, I enjoyed the anime a lot. I’m not sure but might have got some ideas from the anime.

It has set me free – in a way. Tomita was a chief scenario writer of anime, and it kept him busy, he stopped to write manga story – withdrew manga team and concentrated on the anime. I had been already free, gave a lot changes to story Tomita did, but after the anime had started, both of us had worked individually.

We want to thank you again for your time and patience and hope to see more of your beautiful work in the future.

Yazawa-Sensei: Thank you! 🙂
