Fans of the popular voice actor Nobuhiko Okamoto will be delighted to know that the adorable and yummi-licious Tokyo-founded fashion accessory brand “Q-Pot.” has recently announced its latest collaboration with the seiyuu, and has released a whole new exclusive range of designer accessories based on this collaboration!
The “Q-Pot.” x Nobuhiko Okamoto” accessories consist of two types of necklaces, each with their delightfully-designed charms and pendent add-ons. Let’s take a look!
First in the range is the “Brave Ghost Charm Necklace” – featuring an adorable ‘ghostly blob’ pendant-charm wearing a gold crown, attached on a gold-plated chain. The ghostly-character design is based on Okamoto-san’s love for adventure/fantasy RPG games and its imagery inspired by the many controversial anti-hero characters that Okamoto-san has provided character voices for in the course of his seiyuu career.
The translucent body of the ghostly pendent has a chocolate-coloured cross imbued within; and the iconic cursive “Q” alphabet that is signature in most Q-Pot.’s accessories is engraved onto its front along with a fiercely-smiling expression that is both charming and adorable. A detachable broadsword charm-piece is also attached to the chain. The “Brave Ghost Charm Necklace” retails at JPY 23,000.
The other exclusive item in the collaboration range is the “Chocolate Cross Necklace” – the idea behind the design inspired by Nobuhiko Okamoto’s love for chocolates. A chocolate-bar cross – again with the signature cursive “Q” (for “Q-Pot.”) alphabet; and a cursive “N” alphabet (for Okamoto-san’s name ‘Nobuhiko’) engraved on its frontal face makes up the pendant’s design. Okamoto-san’s autograph is also engraved at the back of the chocolate-cross. Attached on a dark-chocolate-colour plated metallic chain, the entire accessory piece retails at JPY 14,000.
Both items in the “Q-Pot.” x Nobuhiko Okamoto” collaboration is available for pre-orders at all branches of Q-Pot.’s physical retail shops in Tokyo and Osaka; as well as its Japan-domestic online shop and International Online Shop.
To facilitate retail traffic, the pre-ordering period is split into two stages:
Q-Pot. Café Book that will be released for distribution/sales on 27 August 2018.
Stage 1: 7 ～ 20 August 2018 – orders will estimated be shipped out from early-October 2018
Stage 2: 21 ～ 31 August 2018 – orders will estimated be shipped out from mid-October 2018
The “Q-Pot.” brand of fashion accessory was founded in 2002 in Tokyo – the brainchild of fashion-model-turned-designer Tadaaki Wakamatsu. The philosophy behind the brand believes in connecting people to one another through ‘positive accessories that are adorable to the eyes, delightful to the senses, and sweet to savour’; so everyone will bask in a whimsical feeling of happiness. Under the same belief, it also branched out to start its sister-business “Q-Pot. Café” so that more ‘sugary sweetness can spread smiles around the world’ when they are transformed into tasty desserts!
