Hello Kitty in Wonderland Art & Exhibition

This weekend Sanrio opened an exhibition called Hello Kitty Wonderland in Nagoya, Japan. Apart from funny optical illusions and a card game maze, the event location delights with lots of cute Alice in Wonderland inspired Hello Kitty art, created by the woman behind the cat, Japanese character designer and illustrator Yuko Yamaguchi. Just like the white bunny designs, the kawaii art of earlier successful Hello Kitty exhibitions show her strong influence on Sanrio’s most famous character, as seen in her lovely strawberry designs. We are sure Hello Kitty is in very good hands and can’t wait for her next cute creations.

“Alize in the maze” in Hong Kong

We found a wonderful promotion in Hong Kong again. As there are so many shopping malls in Hong Kong they all come up with creative installations to attract customers. The mall Olympian city still has a lovely Alice in Wonderland promotion that we visited on January 1st. They created a real maze outside the mall with different stations with all the characters from the fairy tale: the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, The Queen of Hearts, Caterpillar,  Tweedledee and Tweedledum etc. As it was a Christmas promotion, there are also lots of Christmas trees in the maze. The only character missing was Alice herself… she was probably lost in the maze.

Blog post about our Alice in Wonderland fabric

Zakkalife wrote another blog post about one of our Kokka fabrics, the pink Alice in Wonderland fabric. She got that fabric a while ago and had some leftover and decided to make cute Alice hairclips with them. I really like the matte finish of the hairclips. Have a look at them:

Today we finally received our first order of Kokka fabrics from Japan. They were sent by courier directly from Kokka’s warehouse and it took only 1 day to arrive. It’s definitely an advantage to be in Hong Kong ;-)

We ordered fabrics with prints like christmas deers, matryoshka animals, cute bears, black kitty, toadstools, Alice in Wonderland and matryoshka dolls. Below you can see 2 pics I took to show you how the fabric bolts were delivered. They came in 2 huge long packages wrapped with a very strong paper outside and plastic wrapping inside.
