with 17 comments

I think tokidoki is beyond cute! Can’t help but to love everything I see that is tokidoki. I took some pictures of Sidecca’s window display at the Northridge mall…

Juri Ueda’s Illustrations

leave a comment »

I can’t remember how exactly I found out about Juri Ueda, but I did and her work is amazingly kawaii! I bought some prints through Etsy.

Here are a few prints I purchased:

I still can’t get over how cute her illustrations are… Makes me very happy.

Downtown LA

I was pretty tempted to snag one of these knock-off Tokidoki bags… but I didn’t stay in the store long enough, so oh well…

See anything funny with the bag pictured below? I just thought it was a simple little bear…

However, Denise saw a bear with huge boobs…

Harajuku Lovers Paper Dolls

with 23 comments

Super Kawaii!!! I saw a skyscraper ad featuring one of these adorable Harajuku Lovers, so obviously I had to click, right? HP is so smart — they’ve had some good marketing lately.

I made a doll to represent myself, of course… and this is the outcome:

Official Hello Kitty Fender Stratocaster Guitar

leave a comment »

After playing Rockband, I want this fender even more! I wish Sanrio would hook up with a drum company (like Pearl?) and make an official Hello Kitty Drum set. It would probably be way too expensive for consumers… but maybe they can make some one offs? That wold be so cute!

Pochacco’s Birthdate

leave a comment »

This has bothered me for some time so I thought I would point it out. On Japan’s official Sanrio site, they list all the characters with the year each was introduced… along with the history, bio, etc. Anyway, it states that Pochacco was born on February 29th (yes, a leap year)… which also happens to be my birthday. The thing that bothers me is that Pochacco was introduced in 1989 (an odd year)… there was no 29th that year since it comes once every four years (1984, 1988, 1992…) Is it wrong that I am bothered so much by this? Does anybody actually care?
