New In: Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny Collaboration Bows in GUNMETAL & SHATTERED CANDY APPLE

9 Feb

We’re very excited to announce new licensed products as part of our Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny line! Our past Hello Kitty collaboration bows in PINK and RED were so popular that we created more!

The previous Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny collaboration bows have sold thousands worldwide, and were seen on the likes of Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons, as well as Kitty Mama herself, Yuko Yamaguchi! Make sure to snap up these new ones and show off your Hello Kitty pride!

They are both available exclusively at our web shop at!

The most lux Hello Kitty Bow yet! The luscious deep red of this shiny vinyl has a layer of cracked foil in between the layers of fabric, resulting in a “cracked” candy apple finish! A perfect accessory for any true Hello Kitty fan! It’s like Hello Kitty got some apples and made them into a bow!

This metallic silver is iridescent, changing from a dark metallic grey to black as you move it around in the light. A great option for our Hello Kitty fans that like to wear darker colors, this bow is perfect with any outfit!

For wholesale inquiries, please feel free to email us at!

Hello Kitty Noir x Sephora x Chubby Bunny!

20 Dec

On December 10th, Chubby Bunny was excited to participate in the Hello Kitty Noir launch party, hosted by Sephora!

We’re always so happy to collaborate with our friends at both Sanrio and Sephora, and this time was no exception! This time, to celebrate the launch of the new Hello Kitty Noir beauty collection at Sephora, they hosted a swank, swingin’ 20’s style party at Maison 140 boutique hotel in Beverly Hills. This private event was open to Hello Kitty collectors and friends for an intimate gathering to view the Hello Kitty suite inside the hotel!

Chubby Bunny was commissioned to make fun and fancy striped bows to show off Sephora’s signature pattern, as well as embody the Hello Kitty-shaped bow that we’ve become famous for creating!

Take a look at the new design!

Big thanks to Yume for taking photos that night, and also Hello Kitty Junkies for their great photos from the night, too!

The bows were given to guests as they entered the hotel by these super cute retro cigarette girls!

I was able to hop over to the event in some vintage wear! I really love this dress! Me looking like a doofus posing in the Hello Kitty suite.

Forever21 x Hello Kitty Debut Party in Los Angeles!

18 Nov

Wow! Last night was such a whirlwind of crazy fun!

I’m actually running out the door to continue preparations for Sweet Streets (This Saturday! You should come!), but wanted to show you guys photos since everyone’s been asking ❤

There were fans lined up all the way up the stairs and throughout the shopping complex of Hollywood & Highland waiting for entry into the big event! At 7pm, a steady stream of Hello Kitty fans were let into the store to shop to their heart’s content! The party featured the new items from the Hello Kitty x Forever 21 collaboration, free nail salon, Hello Kitty herself, and live models courtesy of the Jenner twins. There was even a nice relaxing VIP room for friends of Sanrio, too 🙂

Fun group shot of myself, my cute Lolita friends, the Jenner twins behind us, and Hello Kitty herself!

Yay Hello Kitty and me! I'm wearing the polka dot bow that I had made for the rest of the F21 staff also ❤

Chubby Bunny x Hello Kitty x Forever 21! Plus event photos from the launch in Tokyo!

11 Nov

Hooray!We are so excited to be able to finally announce all of the fun projects that we have in store for our fans who like Chubby Bunny, Hello Kitty, and Forever 21!

Chubby Bunny was recently contacted to construct another super fun mascot costume for the famous Ms. Kitty for her debut at the Hello Kitty x Forever 21 collaboration launch party! As some of you may know, this is not our first collaboration with Sanrio! We have also created a Hello Kitty mascot outfit for Hello Kitty’s Bats & Cats Masquerade, as well as the Sephora x Hello Kitty Beauty Collection Launch. And, of course, the officially licensed Hello Kitty Bows in pink and red! (Not to mention producing several Sanrio parties with my other company, Bubble Punch!)

If you guys haven’t taken a gander at this ridiculously cute collaboration line of clothing, you need to now!

One of the cutest images of Hello Kitty from the new line is this super MOD looking outfit she wears here:

Using that, I created a super mod version of the Hello Kitty mascot costume! Additionally, Chubby Bunny created a series of custom headband bows for Forever 21 employees to wear during the big launch event!

The first launch for this line was held in Tokyo, at the Shibuya Forever 21 flagship store. (But not to fear my friends! They are also hosting a super sweet launch party here in Los Angeles next week! Details at the bottom of this post)

I sent my friends at over to the Tokyo launch party in my stead (since I’m busy here in LA making lots of cute stuff for my fashion show next week!)  Here are some of the pics they snapped of the Hello Kitty mascot outfit I created, the fans, and the adorable fashion!

Complimentary nail salon!

You can see a more in depth report at so scoot over there! A HUGE thanks to my friends there who made it to the event in my stead and totally rocked out with AMAZING photos and video!

And don’t forget, officially licensed HELLO KITTY BOWS in red and pink are available for purchase on my online shop!

Okay, and the moment you’ve been waiting for! The secret weapon that will get you into the Los Angeles Hello Kitty x Forever21 launch party for all of you lucky enough to be in the SoCal area! The same Hello Kitty costume and more of the super cute bows will be on store staff that night, too! Also, Chubby Bunny will be helping to create a super neat Hello Kitty-inspired window display for the store! I’ll be sure to take lots of photos!

Hello Kitty’s “Graffiti Kitty” debut at Sephora!

18 Jul

This past Thursday, July 14, Sanrio debuted a brand new Hello Kitty makeup collection to add to their beauty line at Sephora! I was really excited to meet so many old and new friends and partake in the fun launch event!

Pose, the artist who created the signature art for the new Graffiti Kitty line, was on deck early in the morning creating 2 huge graffiti walls that were used to promote the event! There was one huge wall outside of the Sephora entrance, and one just inside, where “Kitty Mama” herself, AKA Yuko Yamaguchi, was doing signings for fans!

And of course, Hello Kitty herself was there, sporting her official Sephora mascot costume that I created in conjunction with my pals at Sanrio! I loooove this dress, and am so happy they’re using it for her official U.S. tour this year at Sephoras across the country!

Sephora Hello Kitty Beauty Collection Mascot debut & event report!

6 Mar

What a whirlwind of a week it’s been!

Saturday was the big Hello Kitty tour of 3 Sephora locations here in Los Angeles, and I was so excited to see the debut of the mascot costume I made, as well as see the Sephora staff wearing my pink Hello Kitty X Chubby Bunny bows! (Available for purchase at my site, here!)

Hello Kitty's completed Sephora-inspired mascot costume! I made my skirt really quickly that morning out of scraps from making the mascot costume...! We match!

The Hello Kitty Beauty collection was front and center stage at Sephora this weekend!

The Sephora staff were SO nice ❤ They loved the bows! The manager on the far right is also named Michelle ❤

Glad Sephora hopped on the Lolita train and hired these girls to be Hello Kitty's playmates for her appearances! Hooray! I'm always happy to see my friends being appreciated!

After getting a photo with Hello Kitty, guests were given a complimentary autographed picture of Hello Kitty herself! This little girl was pretty excited...! Don't let the sad face fool you.. she was just starstruck I think.. haha!

It was a really nice experience being able to see my hardwork on display! It felt sort of like the Sanrio Small Gift show 2.0! Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support! It’s been a backbreaking week of work, and it looks like the next few weeks are going to be the same! Can’t complain though… when it rains it pours… awesome projects, that is!!!

I have a ton of pictures in my Flickr Gallery, so make sure to take a peek over there for more pics!
Hello Kitty will also be making it to New York in a few weeks, sporting the same outfit! Hope you guys on the East coast can check it out! Details can be read about here on my friend Maria’s awesome Hello Kitty blog, Hello Kitty Junkies!!
