Oh Hello Kitty you never cease to surprise me with your endless collaborations, I’m sure most of you were super excited about the (2010) Hello Kitty collection inspired by the 70′s ultimate glam rock band KISS. To add to the news Ms Kitty has signed on to a new animated series for The Hub. With an unexpected twist that will involve KISS. Now in development, KISS’ Gene Simmons is slated to be one of the executive producers and the show will feature four Kiss x Hello Kitty characters living their rock ‘n’ roll dreams and bringing pink anarchy to every situation they are in. Paul Stanley says: “Knowing and viewing The Hub as I do daily with my three children, it is the perfect home for us to bring the Kiss Hello Kitty juggernaut to yet another generation.”
If you have stopped by Sephora lately for the Disney Princess Collection maybe you got a peek at The Hello Kitty Tokyo Pop Limited Edition Capsule Collection sold exclusively at Sephora. Features an array of colors inspired by a Tokyo girl lifestyle. Below is a step-by-step instruction on how-to get a Colorful Eye with the Hello Kitty Tokyo Pop Palette. Watch Hello Kitty in the official promo video below hanging out in the streets of Tokyo with her friends below.
Seems pretty chaotic right? I mean I would feel a bit intimated to go up and check-in. Or I would just stand there distracted by all the colorful graphics.

One of my fans found this cool split screen photo of Yolandi Visser from Die Antwoord and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie character “Weird Girl” (voiced by Catherine O’Hara). “Weird Girl” is an very eccentric girl and one of Victor’s classmates, who is obsessed with the psychic predictions of her cat, Mr. Whiskers. Yolandi Visser is a south African singer/rapper known for her animated personalities. I did some digging and found out the connections get weirder. Sofia Coppola played the live-action “Weird Girl” aka Anne Chambers (as Domino) in the 1984 Frankenweenie and as you can see Yolandi and Anne Chambers both have a Hello Kitty infatuation. See below.
