Jirai kei girls tips for Puroland ! ♡ Eviebunnie

 Good morning everybun

For today’s post, I wanted to share my most recent code and favourite tips for visiting Sanrio Puroland~

Puroland might be my favourite theme park to visit in the world; the rides are peaceful and cute, colours are pastel and pretty, lots of cute sweets & merchandise as well as the unforgettable parade shows and getting to meet some of my favourite characters of all time !!

That’s why whenever I go to Puroland, I like to try my best to coordinate a girly, fashionable outfit that is both practical to wear all day and fun for taking photos with the many spots throughout the park. While you might have seen my last post about the best photo spots, here I wanted to share some of my outfit and accessory tips for getting the best experience at Puroland as a ryousangata or jirai girl~

#1 Plan your outfit the night before + bring comfy clothes / spare shoes 

It sounds simple, but I really recommend planning what you want to wear to the park the day (or, a couple days before!) you decide to go. Firstly, it saves you time in the morning when you have to get up early to leave for the park, and secondly it helps when you’re planning what character you’ll be representing with the cute ears and accessories!

For example, I planned this coordinate with My Melody in mind to keep lots of white and a baby pink handbag to match her baby pink ears. For a jirai touch I paired this outfit with my Yosuke platform trainers, Justin David and Vivienne Westwood rings. You don’t always need to perfectly match a character, but it is nice to know your outfit works well with them~

Shoes are also very important! While I have worn platform heels like Bubbles many times to Puroland, I always keep a comfy extra pair in my bag. I really recommend the Don Quiote (My Melody) crocs as they are super light to carry and still cute, so even if you end up getting photos not wearing your heels they’re still going to be pretty!!

#2 bring plenty of props for otaku activities 

This is one I really recommend, but bring many of your favourite characters accessories to Puroland !~
Many jirai girls bring ita bags, plushies, acrylic stands, etc of their oshi to Puroland and you can take the cutest photos. I brought some Madoka accessories with me as well as the doll I have of her, and love the photos you can take!! Some of the spaces at Puroland are very small and work well for dolls, plushies or acrylic stands of your oshi!!
They also have many goods you can purchase for your oshi such as custom penlights, charms, etc…

#3 take plenty of ambience photos and try the adorable crepes 

I think my best sweets recommendation at Puroland is the character crepe, and whilst I always get My Melody, there are so many characters to choose from!! It makes for a lovely photo, tastes pretty good and you can get lots of lovely drinks from the same stand such as bubble tea or soda. This is located in the main food hall!
I’d also recommend trying any of the limited food that you see for sale there- most likely it’ll be super adorable and make your visit even more special~
Many of the ambience photos I take work really well for a great jirai or ryousangata Instagram feed, or, even better, serve as happy memories to look back on♡

#4 bring a penlight and book the parade seats in advance

Puroland has a lot of different parades on depending on the season and time of day..! I definitely recommend researching what the special parade is for the season you are visiting and watching that for an unforgettable experience. The parade is free to watch, but you do have to book front row spots in advance via the app or website
I recommend just standing at the area around 30-40minutes early so you can get a good view if you don’t want to spend more money. And, of course buying an adorable lightstick from the gift shop!~
Sanrio’s Miracle gift parade is a wonderful experience to meet new characters you might not know and enjoy catchy songs, I really recommend it! In my experience I love the front row seats as it gives you a chance to interact with the characters and get the best photos…!

#5 explore the park slowly until closing time 

One of my favourite past times at Puroland is just to simply wander and let your eyes look at all the beautiful details you might not miss while on the rides and at the events, such as pretty wallpaper, themed vending machines and even paintings in some of the bathrooms…!

This also includes just having those happy moments to share with your friends dressed up as your favourite characters (we went as Kuromi, Kitty and Melo!) and it was just so much fun. Usually I am in a bit of a rush to get home from Puroland and don’t stay until it closes, but this time it was so lovely to take the day slowly and look back at the beautiful rainbow gates enhanced by the light rain.

hope this post is helpful for your visit to Puroland !~ ♡
I’ll try to keep more consistent with writing on this blog- it can be tricky when life is so busy but there’s so much I want to share with you angels…
