Hello Kitty Purchases From Anime Expo® 2009

This is all the Hello Kitty loot I got from Anime Expo 2009! @_@ No buyer’s remorse this time… I just wish I had picked up the blindboxed Hello Kitty ears and the Goropikadon Plushies and Penguin Kitty Plushies… And some Sugarbunnies things… But then, I would have had the buyer’s remorse for sure! o_O

I saw my über talented artist friend Mari Inukai inside the exhibit hall! She was there to promote her book of paintings… So I ended up buying one and she was nice enough to sign it for me! ^_^

SF Hello Kitty Sightings, Part 1

I just visited San Francisco over the last weekend — I went with my friend Joy and a couple of the deciding factors were: 1. she promised we could go to Gilroy; and 2. we can look for Hello Kitty stuff in the city! So… Of course I said YESSS!!! On the day we were in San Francisco, we hit up Japantown first!

I knew I was at the right place when I saw this poster (HammsterKitty uploaded a photo on Hello Kitty Junkies)…
