It’s been almost two weeks since Hello Kitty Con! I miss it so much — what a truly amazing time! I was literally in Hello Kitty Heaven! =^_^=
Here are some photos from the preview night/VIP party that was held on Wednesday, October 29th!
For the preview night, I was allowed a +1 and so I was happy to go with my fellow Junkie Jordan! We decided to be early birds because we were too anxious! Here is the lovely banner welcoming everyone.
Ahhh! Huge Hello Kitty with rainbow behind her! <3 <3 <3
We spotted the Hello Kitty Cafe truck and decided to check out the menu. Isn’t the truck supercute? I would LOVE to wrap my car in Hello Kitty graphics and drive it around! =^_^=
Here is the Hello Kitty Cafe Menu — prices for the kittilicious items ranged from $3 – $15. With purchases of $25/more, you received a free bag (while supplies lasted).
HK Con edition bow water bottle, 40th limited edition petit 4 mini cakes and 5 piece macaron box…
Hello Kitty apple costume cake pops!
And guess who I met that night!?!? Mr. HKH!!! I was SO excited! He even let me take a picture with him! He has an awesome blog — makes me laugh (on the inside and out loud) and he is part of my inspiration when I first started blogging!
Here is the lovely Jordan…
We posed on the red carpet so we can get an outfit shot. We are both sporting our Chubby Bunny red bows we got during Three Apples! Jordan is wearing Japan LA for Hello Kitty Favorite Things kimono and black tokidoki for Hello Kitty handbag. I was in my Japan LA for tokidoki x Hello Kitty Pharaoh boxy top, Hello Kitty vintage print patent embossed mini city bag by Loungefly, giant Cicely Margo bow ring (which Jordan actually gifted me for a Bday one year) and brown Minnetonka x Hello Kitty fringe boots.
We saw the adorable lolitas and of course, we must pose with these cuties!
We ran into Taft! Our Hello Kitty friend we met during Three Apples!
As soon as we entered inside The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, we saw the cutest ATM’s! Isn’t the artwork just darling!?
We saw a large Kitty inside a teacup so that obviously meant we needed to be in a photo with her!
Spotted this cutie wearing Japan LA for The Simpsons x Hello Kitty collaboration!
We saw the fashions of Lovely Kitty Wonder and live models walking around in the kittitastic ensembles!
Her whole outfit was so amazing — including red hair bow and her Jeffrey Campbells!
Hello Kitty wedding gowns… Hmmm… Should I show my bf? n_~
I thought this dress was so creative! It also reminds me of a birdcage but it is so freakin’ cool!
Jordan and I were eager to see everything so we headed on upstairs to the pop-up shop. There, I spotted my friend Julie (I met her and her lovely daughter when I had the pleasure of checking out Hello Kitty x Eva Air plane at LAX).
I also noticed that tokidoki x Hello Kitty was well represented inside Hello Kitty Friendship Station pop-up shop!
My friend Jaycee was upstairs too — doing a little interview for the local KCAL 9 (CBS) news (and right in front of the cute plushes)!
Here I am with Jordan and Jaycee just freaking out over kawaii Kitty overload! @___@
We made our way over to the Super Supermarket… And you won’t believe who else I saw! The one and only Nitrolicious! She is one of my fave bloggers — such a stylish being! And she was supernice and I got to take a photo with her in front of the Beats by Dre booth (and yes, those are a pair of Solo2 headphones that she is rockin’ around her neck).
Jordan and I each got an original drawing from one of the artists from Sanrio Japan.
Jordan also got this exclusive and limited super blinged out Swarovski encrusted Hello Kitty ruby solid perfume cocktail ring from Sephora! *____* Yes, I was pretty *jelly* especially since it was limited to 275 pieces and came with a certificate of authenticity!
I adore Kitty-chan’s dress! This is her pastel dress featuring a polka dots and tiny chums design.
And did you know there was Hello Kitty toilet paper in the bathroom? o___O I did not want to use it to wipe… But I had to! When I took a bit longer than usual to get out of the stall, Jordan yelled out, “Maria! Stop taking pictures!” Oh, She knows me too well… I guess I should be happy she didn’t think I was stealing it.
The party was more crowded as it got later into the night.
Isn’t Jaycee’s outfit so kawaii? And look at Chrissa Sparkles — she is always a shining star!
Kittilicious sweets were served…
Back inside, there was a Hello Kitty money machine/cash cube. There was pretend paper money inside the box — all of them white except for about three green ones. I only saw one tho! I don’t remember how much time you get, but when you’re inside the box, the air turns on and the money flies and if you catch the green one, you get a prize. Do you think I caught a green one? You will have to wait for a future post to see if I won a prize…
I was able to spot *Super Jill* and her friend with the awesome custom dress — I cannot help but to love Kitty-chan as food — hamburger, hot dog, french fries, milkshake… Mmmm… Getting hungry now. 😛
Oh, hey! Hello HK Guy! He was wearing a Hello Kitty tie and black Chubby Bunny bow! ^_^
Big Hello Kitty slippers?
Photo op with Bellerina!
There’s Grace — taking a break and watching all of our bags…
More friends I met during Three Apples — Stephanie and Robyn!
