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

 

 

 

 

Thanks to Sephora and Sanrio for letting us be part o the fun Hello Kitty action!

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!

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 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!

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!!
