Coco Kuma Studios

Hi my name is Brittany but I mainly go by Kuma! My shop Coco Kuma Studios is a kawaii and Japanese fashion inspired clothing and accessories shop located in Philadelphia. I am 26 years old and have been drawing ever since I can remember. Chibis were always my favorite things to draw hence why they are primarily what I draw now!

My shop was initially created because I would always see cute clothing, but I didn’t see a lot of Black representation so I decided to make them myself! I also wanted to be able to make kawaii clothes that could fit a wider range of sizes. Being plus size myself, I know how hard it can be to find clothes for Jfashion that fit right if at all. By creating my own shop and offering larger sizes, I want everyone to be able to display their unique kawaii styles!

I’ve personally been into Japanese Fashion since 2009 and my favorite styles are Lolita, Fairy Kei, and Decora!

When I’m not working on art for the shop, I’m usually watching horror movies, shows, and animations, watching some of my favorite gaming Youtubers or playing video games myself! I also love listening to creepypastas when I can’t find the right spoopy show or movie to watch. I also love learning new things and am always trying out new crafts like resin charms and perler beads! I also love listening to music and some of my favorite genres to listen to include kpop, lofi, hip hop, and denpa!
