Due to unfortunate circumstances we weren't able to do Kawaii Kon (anime convention here in Hawaii). We had a bunch of designs ready to go for that event but this Seventh Hokage design was too nice for us to delay. When deciding on who would be the perfect model for this tee one name came to mind: Pink Princess! I've always been a fan of her work and felt she would be a perfect fit for this photoshoot.

To me some of the best pranks cross the line between being believable. And I've always been inspired by a brand called Johnny Cupcakes, being such a wacky brand and tricking people into thinking his story is a bakery he'd get people to buy shirts with cupcakes on them. Being two unusual and wacky brands I believed that I could trick people into thinking we were working on a collaboration. And it all started with this little teaser early in the morning of April 1st.
The Honolulu Festival is such a cool event bringing the Japanese culture to life during a huge 2 day event and thanks to Art+Flea we got to be a part of it once again. One story I would like to share is we had one goal that weekend, it was to get at least one Japanese tourist sale.
Hello everyone! My name is Chad Maluyo and I am the creator of Crappykids. Growing up people would ask me "What would you like to be when you grow up?" And I'd always say either a paleontologist (cause I love dinosaurs, and Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies) or some kind of scientist. Little did I know that I would do none of that and instead start my own business and become an entrepreneur. How did it end up this way you may ask? Let me tell you about how I became a Crappy Kid.
If we can sell a shirt with a piece of crap on it and become successful. Then anyone can do what they want to do and find success as long as they work hard and never give up.
