Chubby Bunny at “Harajuku Holiday!”

23 Feb

I love vending at Tune In Tokyo‘s monthly events whenever possible! The crowd there is super sweet, fun, and passionate about music and fashion, and I always end up leaving with new ideas and new friends πŸ™‚ Last night’s “Harajuku Holiday” themed event was no different, with lots of fun guests in attendance, plus a rad Lolita Fashion show, organized by my buddies Mandie and Oli ❀

The night also boasted performances from May J. and Joe Inoue, the hosts of NHK World’s “J-MELO”, who both performed songs from their latest albums! I was also excited to be invited in as one of the judges for the “Fashion Forward Lolita” contest, which I judged with both May and Joe ❀ Pics of the night below!

The Chubby Bunny booth! I've been marathon-ing "The Last Airbender" for the past 2 weeks while working and just finished the series yesterday, so I was inspired to do some hair loopies for the night! I'm also wearing my Rainbow Sparkle dress that I made for my fashion show at Sweet Streets last year ❀

At the judging table! Myself, May J. and Joe Inoue (making a really hilarious face).

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!!
