As we all know, Hello Kitty’s birthday was last Nov. 1, and fans all over the world greeted and paid tribute to our favorite Kitty. I have my own little thing on the works, but right now I’d like to highlight some things that happened in celebration of her big day~
Hello Kitty Birthday Parties. Here are a couple of pictures I found on Flickr, just click the images to see more related pics of how these people celebrated her birthday!
ABOVE, a sheet of paper with birthday wishes for Hello Kitty. It’s so sweeet~ ^^
LEFT, Hello Kitty celebrations from Hello Diana’s shop, they even had a Hello Kitty mascot!
Coolness no? Also, I found out about this convention that’s gonna happen on her birthday next year, but I won’t post anything about that because I’m not sure about it, and that’s a year too far ahead
Hello Kitty Gold Items. Well we all know that Sanrio released a lot of shiny gold stuff way before her birthday, but here’s a quick rundown:
||Hello Kitty Pure Gold Trump. Gold Hello Kitty playing cards — a set of 54 cards and 4 Jokers, made of 99.99% pure gold, weighing 0.73g each. Made by Mitsubishi Materials Co., Ltd. It costs 568,000 Yen, tax included. Expensive way to play poker
|And here we have the Hello Kitty Pure Gold Art. It’s made the same way as the gold playing cards. It shows Kitty and Daniel on a carriage in Versailles. It’s about 29cm by 20cm, and costs 330,000 Yen. Another one of those “good life” Hello Kitty things~
||Finally, the Hello Kitty Gold Business Card. It costs 10,500 Yen each, also from the same material as the previous two. The size is just about the same as a normal business card would be. What a way to tell everyone how much you love Kitty ^^
Hello Kitty has other gold items, like the huge Maneki Neko and the Hello Kitty euros. You don’t have to be 50 to be golden.
Hello Kitty New Items. I love the cover of The Strawberry News magazine for last month, in preparation for Hello Kitty’s birthday. I took a picture, lookie~
Do you like Hello Kitty’s look? Haha it’s awesome. Anyway the issue had a lot of collaborations, and if you’ll see the lower left part of the picture, you’ll see a drawing of a girl watching Hello Kitty blow out her birthday candles ^^ There are some items that were released for Hello Kitty’s birthday, but I think I’ll reserve them for my next posts~
I’ll be making a video about Hello Kitty through the years soon. At least I hope I can get around to doing it. Sorry this is late, I just got back from my relatives as per custom here for All Soul’s Day. But as for now…
Happy Birthday Hello Kitty! We love you!~ <3
