Every time Hello Kitty and Sanrio makes an appearance at Comic Con International, it is truly something special. Who can forget San Diego Comic Con 2012, with Hello Kitty Chun-Li? In 2013, there was the very pretty in pink debut of Hello Kitty Fashion Music Wonderland! Last year, in conjunction with Hello Kitty’s 40th, Sanrio and Hello Kitty had offerings for fans both inside and outside the convention center! This 2015, once again Sanrio has something exciting and fun to offer!
Last year it was Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary and this year it is the 40th anniversary of two of my other favorite Sanrio characters, Little Twin Stars and My Melody!
To celebrate these two very special occasions, Sanrio will have something honoring them at Comic-Con! There will be a booth on the San Diego Convention Center floor and Little Twin Stars and My Melody designers from Japan will be there! The designers will be present to draw the characters and sign art boards for a limited number of fans each day of the convention. I’ve had art boards drawn by these designers in the past and I can tell you that they are truly wonderful! It is such an amazing piece of personalized art and something that can truly be treasured forever!
Aside from the art boards, fans will also have the chance to get limited edition My Melody vinyl figure and Little Twin Stars vinyl figure sets. These collectables are exclusive to Comic-Con.
The cuteness does not end there however, Hello Kitty fans can also find Hello Kitty Comic-Con exclusives and limited edition product at various booths!
The wonderful book, Hello Kitty, Hello 40 story & art anthology will be offered for purchased at booth 2813. If you’d like a copy, you must get it here because this is the last opportunity for fans to their hands on it!
Do you remember the Chogokin Hello Kitty die-cast robot? Once again, the action figure is back and this time in a new red color way! You can get that as well as a reissue of Chogokin Hello Kitty in the blue colorway that sold out last year (available with new packaging) at Bluefin-Tamashii Nations’ booth #3545.
Upper Deck dog tags will also be available at their booth #307. The cards will have Hello Kitty in five fun Comic-Con themed careers: Background Actor-Zombie, Comic Book Artist, Toy Designer, Panel Moderator, and Cosplayer. Each dog tag will have an exclusive black ball chain, a matching oversized trading card, and a figure pack. How kawaii is that?
Tokidoki at booth #5145 will have exclusive “Kittypatra,” “Kitty Gang” and “Kaiju Kitty” fashion wear as well as fan favorite tokidoki x Hello Kitty “Frenzies.”
Lastly at Mightyfine booth #1322, they will have a Little Twin Stars t-shirt and a My Melody t-shirt. Outside of the convention, there will be even more hello kitty smiles because My Melody and Little Twin Stars’ street teams will in the San Diego are giving out themed freebies.
Hello kitty foodies rejoice because the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will be at the Comic-Con Interactive Zone at Petco Park.
Aside from the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck’s ever so popular offerings like Hello Kitty donuts and Hello Kitty bow water bottles, a little kitty whispered to me that they will be offering something cute and new (shhhhh…it’s new designs on their Hello Kitty macarons!!)
Comic Con is in San Diego this July 9-12! The special celebration of 40th Anniversaries for My Melody and Little Twin Stars at Comic Con are sure to bring smiles to every one! The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will once again be sure to make our tummies and hearts full! There’s hello kitty (and friends) happiness everywhere!
