This piece is so beautiful, that I'm having trouble putting it into words. Up close, you can easily tell that a lot of care and time went into making it. I truly admire the artist's work. It is worth every penny!

I’m at a loss for words, this piece is so beautiful. Waku shipped this so quickly! I have purchased a few times from Waku and each time the quality of work and the joy I get from each piece is just overwhelming. Thank you so much. I added the pikachu end because they all just look so cute together. ❤️

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do custom commissions?

Custom orders are currently closed due to Covid-19, because its been extremely difficult to get particular figures from overseas, as well as the cost of the figures has dramatically increased. Another reason I'm taking a break from customs is that its extremely time consuming to do them and for now I'm just enjoying doing pieces that  I enjoy and inspire me! :) 

Are the plants real?

The plants are artificial and the moss is preserved, so the planters require no maintenance. Everything inside the Gameboy is strongly glued together. However in the rare event that the items are delivered to you loosely, please get in touch.

Are the figurines handmade?

No, the figures use for my pieces are sourced from Japan, I try to stick with authentic toys from brands like Bandai and Tomy. Some of the toys are also from Japanese Gashapon machines! I get them from SO many different websites and independent sellers. Its taken me a long time to build my list of resources. If you are wondering what collection or brand a certain figure is from just message me!

Do you ship Internationally?

Yes, I do for small terrariums and Gameboys! I use Fedex Priority currently for international shipping. The price will be calculated at checkout.

How often do you update your shop?

I release new art pieces a couple times per month. I announce on social media when the releases will happen. I usually release about 10-20 pieces per update. Each one of my pieces is one of a kind, I will sometimes make variants of pieces but no two are ever the exact same.

Can I pre-order or reserve a piece ahead of time?

No, to make it fair for everyone all shop updates are first come first serve.

Sustainability?

I really care about the environment and I try to keep my business as green as possible. I use 100% biodegradable bubble wrap and recycled boxes for packing.

How long does it take to make your pieces?

It anywhere from 4-6 hours to make each piece. each one is made with a lot of care and attention to small details.
