Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I’ve been meaning to write this post for aaaaages so today I want to talk about my new boom – Hello Kitty! I used to love Hello Kitty as a teen and it was only when I start doing my kitchen did my love for her get reignited. I also discovered some old Hello Kitty bags that I *thankfully* didn’t throw away (which I featured in one of my recent YouTube videos) and it made me so happy! And then it got me thinking… Could I mix Hello Kitty with Gyaru???
The simple answer was – yes! There was a Hello Kitty boom in the gyaru world back in 2007, 2009 and 2010, where Hello Kitty did collaborations with Popteen and some jfashion brands! And guess what? I was able to get my hands on the Tsu-chan Hello Kitty plushie from 2008 ♡＼(￣▽￣)／♡ This started me on the path to slowly collecting more Hello Kitty plushies, as well as My Melo (because I also love love love My Melo-chan!). I would love to collect some more Hello Kitty apparel as well, and will do a YouTube video soon of my gets.
Hello Kitty x Popteen
Here are some Hello Kitty gyaru inspirations I snapped from my Popteen collections!
Hello Kitty Collaborations (and random pics from the internet)
Hello Kitty Gyaru inspirations that I found via the internet! Most of these feature collections that brands did. Rady always do really good collaborations with Hello Kitty and so have JSG in the past.
Hello Kitty Accessories
Here are some pictures I found where Hello Kitty wasn’t really a main part of the outfit, but are shown in accessories! I personally love this and it makes me wanna do more decoden (or buy some because I’m very impatient tehe).
Honestly… I could go on and on with these images but I think you get the general idea tehe. I can’t wait to do more Hello Kitty co*des! I did one a few weeks ago and I loved it so much.
My Hello Kitty related content!
So today I updated my blog to go with my new boom that I’m really happy with!
I’ve already done a few posts on my new boom, especially over on my youtube channel! Here are a few videos I did ♡
Okie, that’s all for today! What’s your recent boom? ♡

I have to admit that my first contact with kawaii culture was through Hello Kitty. It was the one character that everyone (even my parents!!) knew about even before anime. So it wasn’t uncommon for me to have HK stationary when I was in first grade and similar. Even Little Twin Stars!! They were everywhere in the 80s and 90s so it was relatively easy to get cute merch :3
Nowadays I just love the juxtaposition between MyMelo and Kuromi, and I feel those 2 represent my fashion style quite well lol, one very pink and the other one very black/purprle haha.
I love seeing Sanrio collabs in gyaru brands! Hope the remaining gal/shibuya109 brands keep doing it ♡
