Gordon Ramsay and MasterChef Junior cast attempts World’s Largest Cupacake… well.. sort of..

26 Sep

Yesterday, I popped out to see the media event for MasterChef Junior at The Grove, which boasted that Gordon Ramsay himself and the cast were going to unveil the World’s Biggest Cupcake in an attempt at a Guinness world record.

There was a decent amount of media there, and crowd of tourists.

I guess the cupcake was supposed to be int his giant box??

Some members of the MasterChef Jr cast came out (And Dara wore my red Hello Kitty x Chubby Bunny bow! <3), with Gordon Ramsay popping out right after.

He gave a little speech thanking guests, then revealed that… oops… they tried to make a giant cupcake, baked it for 36 hours, then found it had been leaking and weren’t able to complete the cupcake….! How sad! Instead, he revealed a very tiny cupcake that they were able to salvage from the big one…

After the reveal, Gordon flicked it into the crowd… haha.

I snapped a quick photo of Dara during one of her interviews wearing the bow, but had to run after that…!

But not before grabbing one of the free Sprinkles cupcakes they gave to the crowd! Were they FOX-flavored? haha.

Hope you enjoyed that senseless Gordon Ramsay post. I love his shows, and am stoked to see the premiere of MasterChef Jr. tomorrow!

 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.

Hello Kitty x VANS x Chubby Bunny!

18 Jun

Iconic skater brand VANS teamed up with Hello Kitty again this year for a full line of adorable shoes, bags, and apparel! For the launch events that they are hosting this Summer, I was asked to create a special Hello Kitty outfit for the occasion!

VANS provided the AMAZING shoes, backpack, and bow for Hello Kitty, while I collaborated with them to make fun denim shorts, a long sleeved striped undershirt, striped tube socks, and a VANS T-shirt for Ms Kitty.

You can check out the photos from the Hello Kitty x VANS launch event in Mission Viejo.

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

Hanky Panky x Hello Kitty Launch Party!

18 May

A ton of readers have been asking me about the lingerie line for Hanky Panky x Hello Kitty ever since I posted photos of their lookbook that featured the Chubby Bunny bow on their models! Just last weekend, Hanky Panky celebrated the launch of the line with a fun and fancy Hello Kitty party in SoHo!

Unfortunately I was unable to attend, but Hanky Panky posted up the photos on their Facebook, so I’m sharing them here 🙂 Also, if you want to purchase anything from Hanky Panky’s new line, you can check out their website store, which JUST added the Hello Kitty items!

The launch celebrated not only Hanky Panky’s new lingerie, but also the Humane Society, which will receive a portion of the sales of these products. Sephora also chipped in at this event, providing giveaways and promotion.

The event was also featured in the Wall Street Journal today! How awesome!

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!
