Hello everyone! How are you enjoying the weekend? I’m going to see D tomorrow! Can’t wait!
Today I’m going to show you some photos I took at the Robot Kitty exhibition at Omotesando Hills in Harajuku.
I didn’t know this exhibition was on, but I’m glad I chanced upon it!
In this exhibition, Hello Kitty has been re-designed as a robot, and many celebrities were asked to dream up outfits for her. For example…..
Kishidan Robot Kitty!
Colourful Robot Kitty by Sebastian Masuda (founder of 6%DOKIDOKI)
Baby’s contribution was a bit…. unexpected?
I knew this flamboyant robo-cat must be the work of someone special!
Sure enough, the designer is IZAM.
Yuko Yamaguchi, the designer of Hello Kitty since 1980, was present at the exhibition. She was wearing Emily Temple Cute!
She spent a long time signing things for this lady, who was obviously a big Kitty fan! She was wearing a Kitty yukata, with a Kitty obi, Kitty handbag, and had an endless array of Kitty good to be signed.
What do you think of Hello Kitty? I used to like her a lot when I was 12 or so, but these days my favourite characters are Jiji (Ghibli), Duffy (Disney) and Kutusita nyanko (are they more mature perhaps?). Rilakkuma has taken over from Kitty as Japan’s most popular character, or so it seems to me. Still, I don’t think she’ll ever be forgotten!
Here’s my casual coordinate for that day:
Cutsew by an another angelus (f.i.n.t) and JSK by Metamorphose
I just pinned it to once side, it’s not gone forever. I really love my new cutsew from f.i.n.t! There was a choice of dusky pink or lilac, pink would probably be easier to coordinate but the lilac was too pretty to resist! I like how it picks up the purple roses in the print of this JSK, and in fact it makes it look like a onepiece.
~I’m making a new tag for f.i.n.t because I know I won’t be able to stay away from there XD~
