Hello Kitty at San Diego Comic-Con!

10 Jul

So sorry for the blog hiatus everyone! It’s been a whirlwind of a year, and if you’ve been following my antics on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, you probably know what’s been up with me 🙂 if not.. hop on over there! (username: iamchubbybunny !)

I hopped back over here to announce a new Japananimation Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny Bow, being released exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con this month! The new bow features a purple, blue, pink ombre rainbow color, with silver sparkles throughout. All bows are, as usual, handmade by myself ❤

 Sanrio Makes Comic-Con International Debut with
Hello Kitty
® Fashion Music Wonderland Experience

   

Sanrio will make its official debut appearance at Comic-Con International in San Diego July 18th-21st, with Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland, an interactive experience that will brilliantly bring Japan’s energetic pop culture to life. Fans will be treated to a colorful, anime-rich experience that will include giveaways, limited edition products, appearances by Hello Kitty and special guests from Sanrio’s Tokyo headquarters, as well as the launch of a new graphic novel, Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland. While Hello Kitty has appeared with partners and collaborators at Comic-Con in the past, 2013 marks the first year that Sanrio is bringing an interactive Hello Kitty fan experience to this famous gathering. Blending the worlds of anime, cosplay, product exclusives, Japanese street culture and superfandom, Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland syncs perfectly with the passionate fan culture that is celebrated at Comic-Con.

  • Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland: Open to the public, this energetic hub is inspired by the styles of Tokyo and Japanese pop culture, putting Hello Kitty at the center of the ultimate fan experience at Comic-Con Interactive Zone at Petco Park. Hello Kitty’s band of Lolitas, who personify anime, cosplay and the colorful style of Japanese pop culture, will host fans at the experience. A retail pop-up shop will offer a mix of event-only and limited edition Japanimation-themed collectible Hello Kitty items, including a free poster with any purchase. Hello Kitty will be present to meet her fans in a Japanimation-style outfit that mirrors the collection of products that will debut at the show. On Friday, July 19th and Saturday, July 20th, a nail artist from Tokyo will be on hand to treat fans to a free Sanrio nail art application with any $25 purchase from the pop-up shop. 
  • Kitty-chan Secret Space: Inside the convention center, the fan experience continues at
    “Kitty-chan Secret Space” (booth 4537). A term of endearment used for Hello Kitty in Japan, “Kitty-chan” is a nod to superfans and a clue that this Comic-Con Hello Kitty is truly distinct. Comic-Con badge holders will have access to the limited edition pink Hello Kitty flocked collector’s figure by Funko that will go on sale each day. The first 50 fans to purchase the figure on Friday, July 19th and Saturday, July 20th will also receive a free customized drawing by one of Sanrio’s lead designers from Tokyo.

 

  • Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland: A new graphic novel:  Published in partnership with VIZ Media, this is the first-ever Hello Kitty graphic novel and it will make its debut at the retail pop-up shop.  The Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland graphic novel features three stories, each by a different graphic artist:  Jacob Chabot, Victoria Maderna and Ian McGinty.

Spectres of the Past <3

6 Jan

I am incredibly happy to be back in Los Angeles, cleaning and decorating my apartment, and seeing my LA friends again! Also, a SPECTRE OF MY PAST (titular line. TITULAR LINE!! haha) showed up in LA this week, the lovely and talented Megan Maude, and  her husband Austen, which I met via THE LIVEJOURNAL many moons ago on the EGL community BACK WHEN THERE WERE NO MODS, GUYS. REMEMBER?

Yeah, we are old school. And old. Haha. They are staying with my buddy Sheyne, and invited me out to some hangout times this week with them! On Tuesday we ventured out to the La Brea Tar Pits, since it was free entry! I’d been a bunch of times before. I really like their wall of Dire wolf skulls! Look at these things! So many, and all found in the tar pits!

We poked around the museum and the tar-smelling park for a bit, then went to Milk for some sweets satisfaction! I was finally smart enough to ONLY get a milkshake this time, and not a meal + milkshake, which usually makes me go KAPUT for a bit. Everyone else had a meeting to go to after that, so I went around to Koreatown and grabbed my buddy nicole for some intense Korean food-ening! We drove over to Kobawoo House for some nomnoms!

Huge line outside means you KNOW it's gonna be JAWSOME!

We patiently waited outside for a good 30 minutes and were rewarded with super fast service, cute waiters (I’m trying to hook Nicole up with one of them), and deeeelish food!

We also got the Makkoli (unfiltered korean rice wine) and was kind of intimidated by the BOWL of it they gave us with a goddamn LADLE!!! SO INTENSE!

We tried to eat it all, but it defeated us in the end THIS is how much we had left over!! Wouldn't even fit in the box! HAHA!

After that epic feast, we padded over to Villains Tavern for some chill drinks and that weird sand-y, shuffle-y board, looking game that’s not quite shuffle board. God I am descriptive. No photos of that because the place is all outside and my phone camera can’t take photos in the dark 😦 POO!

On Wednesday, I had some quiet time to myself so I set about cleaning my office and doing a little decorating. I managed to get up some decorations around my fireplace!

Clouds are from my old apartment in Japan, and the "art" you see are color theory projects of mine from FIDM haha... You can see the corner of Niblet's cage there, too...!

I’m excited to decorate more as I start to accumulate more stuff! I’m currently seeking a dining room table and chairs…!! I ordered some rugs off the internets, and those should be coming in the mail soon, which I’m super excited about! I spent $99 on 23 carpets because there was some crazy sale going on right before New Years! Yay!

After decorating, I dressed up a bit to head over to Sheyne’s place for a nighttime barbecue!

Shirt: Goodwill, Belt, skrt & necklace: H&M, Socks: Target, Bloomers: Bodyline, Boots: Irregular Choice (sample sale!)

SO MANY FOODS =0

I had a wonderful time! I picked up Will, and although it took us over an hour to get to Burbank because of traffic, it was totes worth it…(And we were STILL the first ones there! haha). Met a lot of cool peeps, saw all my old buddies, and of course got to hang with Megan and Austen again! It turns out they aren’t leaving until Sunday, so there will be more time to catch up with those two 🙂

I feel like a jerk for not taking more photos of other people for my blog posts, haha! It mainly has to do with how SLOW my camera is on my phone.  I hate HATE HATE using my phone to take all my pictures (my last camera died in a freak water accident)! But you dedicated readers won’t have to suffer through my crappy blurry pictures for too much longer.. I just ordered a new camera yesterday via Amazon and it should be here soon! THEN YOU CAN SEE FOR REAL PICTURES AGAIN!

Alright, time to clean a bit then head to my eye exam! YAY for being blind!
