Hello Kitty’s “Big Pink Bow” promo video w/ Sephora & Chubby Bunny!

31 May

A few weeks ago, I updated about a fun promotional video that I shot with Sephora and Hello Kitty! Well, the video is finally live and online!

Myself and my friends posed as Hello Kitty “fans” in the video, greeting her on the “pink” carpet, and pawing through her hotel boudoir as Hello Kitty “superfans!” The shoot was really fun and the video is so cute! I make a verry brief appearance in the video.. see if you can find me! haha.

The dress worn by Hello Kitty was hand made by myself, as well as all of the pink Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny Bows worn by all of the girls in the video! As always, they can be purchased at www.iamchubbybunny.com !

Enough chatter! Check out the cute video below!

 

I also did some screen caps of all the cute moments from the video! You can see all of them in the Flickr set here

Hello Kitty’s “Big Pink Bow” Collection at Sephora w/Chubby Bunny!

10 May

It’s been an exciting Hello Kitty-filled weekend! In addition to it being my birthday (more on that later!) the debut of my latest Hello Kitty creation occurred in New York on May 4th, for Hello Kitty’s Big Pink Bow collection launch event with Sephora!

For the event, I collaborated with Sanrio to make an adorable polka dot dress with hot pink accents, and a pop of gold jewelry for Ms. Kitty as well as provide a few hundred pink Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny headband bows for Sephora models to wear while promoting the launch! Megan Hilty (of NBC’s SMASH) even joined in the fun at the event.

The pink puffy bows are available for purchase on my site at www.iamchubbybunny.com!

Girls wearing the Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny bow and riding Hello Kitty bicycles cruised around New York City, promoting the Big Pink Bow event at Sephora! How cute are they?

Kisses from Hello Kitty and friends!

On Tuesday, May 8th, Hello Kitty traveled back to Los Angeles to do a promotional video for Sephora’s Big Pink Bow collection, and I was invited, along with my awesome adorable friends, to join in the shoot on Melrose Place ❤

Here are some behind the scenes photos from the video shoot! The finished video will make it’s debut at the end of May and be featured on Sephora.com and Sanrio.com! I’ll post up links to it as soon as it’s available!

Hello Kitty is a styling cat in the video…! She looked so cute with her face peeking out from the limo!

Hello Kitty and I!

The middle Hello Kitty ring was newly released by Sephora for the Big Pink Bow collection, and opens up to reveal cream perfume scent! It smells really fruity and cute, with hints of pineapple, flowers, & coconut!

You can buy the Hello Kitty perfume ring here!

GIRLentine’s Day at the Vampire Lounge (Yes, all of these things are real)

20 Feb

The holiday of love is one that should be shared with all of your friends, not just your beau. Inspired by a Parks and Recreation’s episode on “GALentine’s Day,” I started my own “GIRLentine’s Day” (yeah, not the same ring to it, but “GAL” means something else to those in the Japanese fashion circle so I changed it up a bit!)! I want to make it an annual tradition with my girl friends; a day to relax, be girly, bond, and bitch about whatever pleases us.

For a venue, I found the totally awesome Vampire Lounge & Tasting Room located in Beverly Hills, across from the posh Peninsula Hotel. It is with a heavily ironic heart that I was super excited to check the place out, especially since their Yelp reviews were glowing.

Vampire Vineyards is owned by an entertainment attorney and his wife, with vineyards in northern and southern California producing a line of “Vampire” wines, including specialty bottles like the (officially licensed!) True Blood Pinot Noir and the Dracula Zinfandel. Vampire Vineyards also owns a small run of spinoff Vampire-themed products, like Vampire Vodka, Vamp Energy drinks, and chocolates and coffee. These guys were smart enough to buy VAMPIRE.COM back in the day, so they know a thing or two about smart marketing.

But back to the event! The lounge itself has 2 floors, with a posh upstairs perfect for a gathering of girls, featuring plush couches, a host of vampire novels, and our new favorite bartender, Rob!

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.

Check below for more fun photos from the event!
