Finally was able to to see the awesome Hello Kitty 40th anniversary exhibit at JANM Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles this past weekend. Really well displayed show with history and vintage Kitty stuff in galleries below and upstairs artists versions of Hello Kitty. My custom Kaiju ( Drazoran ) Hello Kitty and I were reunited ;-P
And yes, there’s another Hello Kitty Kaiju figure release via the museum very soon for those who are keeping track of that ;-P
The show runs till May 31st, 2015, so don’t miss it ! Check out their online shop as well for a must have book on the exhibit. More info: http://www.janm.org
