Here's a cute bento box for a boy. This bento is modeled after Japanese TV hero, Kamen Rider Decade, one of the inumerable Kamen Rider incarnations. Decade's face is supposed to resemble a barcode and uses scanned cards for his various powers and weapons.
This is easy to make. Mix cooked rice with denbu powder, a bright pink powder made from fish, used in sushi. Make a pink rice ball. Cut thin strips of cheese and wrap in nori seaweed. Lay these on the rice ball. Cut two thi slices of cucumber for the eyes. This great example can get you thinking of all kinds of hero face possibilities. It just takes a little creativity and patience.
