I cannot believe I didn't post these photos months ago, and the show is about to close!
Anyone who knows me for any length of time knows I am a recovering Hello Kitty maniac.
And this exhibit at the EMP building in Seattle has it all.
Most of these photos are selfexplanatory. Motor oil and toasters and 'feminine cleansers' are the same all over the world.
I knew exactly what was in the first big case.
The coin purse. I have several.
I love that they retconned a back story for the product.
Value added explained for you
This is my sister's debut in the blog. Hiya! Scale Model Sister!
I owned that toaster in the back. It browns the sacred image of Her Face into the toast.
They have made several versions.
And you know, I'd take that steam iron/reservoir in a hot minute
Liberty print suit
Tiny HK head orthodontics
Swordsman mask and chest plate with the ears and bow in braid
Yes, that is what it is
I love that Badtz Maru, Kororoppi and pals are in the royal family
And yes, the clothes from America's Next Top Model Whatever
made of bags and stuffies
tiled adhesive bandages
It ends on May 15th. I think I have one more tour of it left in me. Too much cuteness!
