(#123) Halloween's bento

I am so disappointed with the pictures taken of this Halloween's bento >__< ... for one, the bento itself is so unflattering and it was soooo dark outside PLUS the lighting in my house is terrible!! I use an extra LED light bulb but the result is too harsh (me not likey!!), and to make it worse I picked the wrong background color ..... *darn it!!!* ...
Good thing there's always next time when it comes to bento-ing. And I'd still have lots of chance to make another Halloween bento.


I copied Sherimiya's Jack O Lantern idea using tangerine. Bought some over the weekend and I have to use it before its all gone!! my boys love tangerine so much.
The rest are Salmon teriyaki, rosted red potato with EVOO and fresh parsley, steamed broccoli, green and yellow green bean, mixed baby tomatoes, yellow baby carrots, tangerine and kiwi berries.



And uh .. guess what??? remember the purple (almost black) green been that I bought from the farmers market the other day? I blanched it this evening and its color turning green :P ... no point to buy some more next time, unless if you want to serve it raw.

I still think this is a very awesome Halloweeen bento Lin! Love the background and bento looks so yum! Perhaps you can use tissue or thin transparent fabric to make the light softer next time :)

Thanks Lia .. your comments is always encouraging ^_^ ... I was a little upset with the result, the bento the picture and everything :'(
Too many things going on this evening, hubby came home late and baby is fussy, so I could not put my 100% into it. And I think bento is only FUN when you are having FUN doing it ...

Thanks for your idea on the lighting, will do that next time.

I think this turned out really nicely. But I know how much i dislike taking pictures in bad lighting. The tangerine looks great, i love it. Not to mention how delicious everything sounds! Sometimes I have to take mine outside for their 'shoot' hehe.

I'm agree with mbak Lia. I think it looks so yummy because suddenly I became so hungry :D

Love the tangerine Jack O' Lantern :D. Ahaha, aku gak pernah bikin bento ato masak kalo cahayanya lagi buruk ato gelap. Abis malessss, capek2 masak potonya jelek hihihihi. Kalo aku mbak, aku paling suka motret kalo pagi dah terang sampe jam 2 ato 3 siang. Tempatnya pilih tempat terang terbuka tapi yang teduh dan GAK kena cahaya langsung ato yang semi indoor :D

Thanks a lot Kelly ^_^ I have to deal with this almost all the time, but last night was so frustrating. Typical northwest weather....

Tata, TangerineOLatern-nya dpt jiplak .. hehehe ....
Nasib tinggal di northwest Ta, ampir tiap hari udaranya mendung begini, banyak ujan ... pagi2 boro2 ada matahari, kalo lagi falls gini baru keluar jam 9-an gitu (itupun klo lg -bagus).
Aku punya 3 anak, laki2 semua. Jd repot sekali, siapin bento musti malem, diphoto-nya jg kebanyakan malem, pagi2 musti siapin ini itu dan dealing sama morning chaos dlsb ...hihihi ...

I think it looks super yummy! I love the Halloween picks and the Jack-o-latern tangerine is the best! Love it. I like to see other's that are critical like I am of their own work. It does make you look at things a little different, but I also do think we are our own worst critics! I don't see half of what you pointed out. it looks great! Very festive!

Hi Lyndsey,
Thanks for coming by .. what a treat to have you visit my blog.
BTW, my husband said that to me too the other night, that I am so critical of my own work. But I think almost everybody are like that ^_^
Thanks again for your very nice and supportive comment.
