eBENTO is a new shopping event in Second Life that will start this May, 15th at 9am SLT and run till June 8th at 9am SLT. This will be an ongoing event that will start on the 15th of each month and will focus on items that are bento related. The founders of the event are Syra Hyun and Shine Messmer.
You know that I am a bento enthusiast so I really wanted to blog about it. You will find bento parts, animations, and more. Most of the items will be new releases but I noticed a few of the items are older but placed at a discount.
This month there are 24 designers participating and all are bringing a variety of different items. I am going to give you a bit of a tour in the following video but please note, since the event is not open yet, not all of the designers have setup as of yet.
Here is a link to my video tour on YouTube: https://youtu.be/XwSikPrbPgA

If you are not familiar with Bento, here is some information and links that will explain it in detail:
