She’s among the wall posters. She’s in drinking glasses, mugs, T-shirts, curtains and recently, she’s become a brand of wine. She’s Hello Kitty and she’s every girl’s and most of the times, grown-up girls’ favorite character.

When he is not smiling, he’s laughing. Just hanging out with Pom Pom Purin is enough to make everyone feel happy. When everyone else has run out of ideas, he’s just getting started on his.

 

The squad’s troublemaker is Bad Badtz-Maru. Saying ‘yes’ before he thinks usually makes sure the whole gang are caught up in all sorts of tricky adventures.

 

It’s a good thing he’s cool on his decks and everyone still likes him. Also part of Hello Kitty’s friends is her younger sister Mimmy. She’s sweet and shy. They’re best of friends but everything else is different. Hello Kitty is a dreamer and her sister likes practical things.

 

Rounding off the friends of Hello Kitty is Sophie. She’s funny, cool, wants to be a model and, even better, has always got time for her friends. She is loved by everyone.

 

Altogether, “Hello Kitty Live – Fashion & Friends” will take you on a story of friendship, talent, hard work and passion for creativity combined with fantastic fashion and costumes specially designed by Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand Tokidoki.
