Having fun with Dream Studio!

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

We at SanrioTown are very proud of Dream Studio, because it truly is one of a kind, and it even won an award! The tool is almost only limited by one’s imagination, and one of our members proved that in a very entertaining way!

Here we have a video from Yagami2, a very creative one that used Dream Studio’s effects to come up with a short little clip! The animation in this video was made entirely using Dream Studio’s effects. Take a look!

Not bad huh? You can use Dream Studio to make your own videos like this, if you have another idea on how these effects can be used, then go ahead and show everyone just how creative you are! :)

Hello Kitty Online is already a hit!

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Hello Kitty Online has received so many positive comments from people who’ve long been awaiting the release, and from people who’ve just heard the great news. What’s more, closed beta tester subscriptions are now over 30,000!

Even now that the game is just at the closed beta stage, there is already an overwhelming response from the media. The news of the launch has already reached sites like News.com, Gaming Today, IGN.com, Kotaku.com, Japanator.com, The Feed, Shinyshiny.tv and Valleywag.

We’ve also received a whole lot of comments on our forums regarding Hello Kitty Online, and because of this, we are currently looking into better tools for our system to better accommodate the increased amount of traffic.

Thank you all for your support and patience!

Valentine’s Day ideas?

Monday, February 11th, 2008

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I bet many of us are fussing over what to do for our loved ones. Grand gestures? Simple tokens? Well here’s a small list of tips to make that day a little sweeter!

© Create your own Valentine’s Day card. Compose a poem or an expression of love that expresses your personality.

© Create a “recollection collection” scrapbook filled with favorite photographs , love letters, keepsakes from special occasions, and cherished mementos.

© Make a CD of your favorite songs as a couple including love songs that you both enjoy listening to. Buy some romantic CDs, classic videos or DVDs and wrap them all together with red ribbon.

© Jewelry is always a favorite. For the woman in your life, buy a heart-shaped locket and put a picture of yourself in it. Personalize the locket with your loved one’s initials so she’ll have something to wear that’s hers alone. Package it in a heart-shaped box or tied to fresh flowers. For your man, a good choice is the classic sterling silver ID bracelet or cuff links with his name or initials custom-engraved.

© Give silk or glass flowers, which will last forever. If your beloved has a green thumb, give a flowering plant to put in the garden to enjoy year after year.

© Prepare your loved one’s favorite dinner and serve it on a romantically set table and dine by candlelight on Valentine’s Day. For the sweetheart with a sweet tooth, make a decadent dessert such as a chocolate fondue with melted chocolate mixed with a touch of heavy cream, and serve it with fruit or cookies.

If you don’t find anything that interests you, just remember this simple rule: It’s better that you give a simple gift that you know will mean a lot to that someone, than give an expensive gift that doesn’t really feel special. Don’t just go with what everyone else is giving, go personal and make sure that that person knows it’s especially for them, from your heart! ©

Happy Chinese New Year!

It’s a holiday full of fireworks, sticky rice cakes, festivities and the color red! If you or any of your friends are Chinese, then you’ll probably experience the lively celebrations first hand.

Here in Sanriotown, some of our users are already celebrating through their blog posts! You can read some of them at the unofficial character blogs of Mimmy, Keroppi and Zashikibuta. You can also find posts from Tingal79, KT_sanctuary, and Ichigo_rei. You can hop around our other blogs to see other posts about the CNY, and don’t forget to leave comments to wish them all a prosperous new year! :)
