DCON Mini Series: Flat Bonnie
Organized to send out a positive message about the adoption of pets, Flat Bonnie creates little bunnies in all shapes and sizes for people who want to own something cute and share love but can’t take on the responsibility of a real life! The cutest thing in town, Kidrobot asked Flat Bonnie a few questions about her Dunny designs in the new DCON mini series.
Shark Bonnie- Flat Bonnie wants to raise awareness about ocean conservation so she put on a shark costume to get attention.-
Dunny Cosplay – Flat Bonnie in cosplay as a Dunny for her favorite convention – DCON.
Are there any “easter eggs” or features of the design with a story or something on the piece that people might not notice at first?
“Don’t eat me” is a message about shark finning. Please don’t eat shark fins or bunnies!!
