DIY: HELLO KITTY MINNIE MOUSE EARS

I really wanted the Hello Kitty Minnie Mouse ears I found on Etsy but I'm currently broke and had to take matters into my own hands. Literally. I cut costs by $20 so I'm happy. I took my Japan LA bow tie and added it to a $2 Minnie Mouse headband I found on Ebay. No one in this house wears bow ties so what better way to make use out of it.
 
 
 
 
Yes it is kind of fun to do the impossible. Saving money on Hello Kitty.

DISNEYSANRIO.COM

Yes there is a online store called Disney Sanrio Store except there's no Hello Kitty and there's no Disney but plenty of Doraemon. I like Doraemon but what the hello!
 
 
 
 

HELLO KITTY MINNIE MOUSE INSPIRED TOTE


If this Hello Kitty bow tote bag doesn't say Minnie Mouse I don't know what does. She still hasn't invited Hello Kitty to her BOW-tique.
 
 

 

HELLO KITTY 2014 CHRISTMAS INFLATABLE AT KMART


It looks like Kmart skipped Halloween but I'll bite. This Hello Kitty Christmas inflatable is pretty cute and I'm running out of places to put them.

HELLO KITTY WEARING TRUE BLOOD STEPHEN MOYER AT COMIC CON

I haven't watched True Blood in a few years but this might make me finish where I left off. Anna Paquin aka Sookie posted this picture of her hubby Stephen Moyer aka Bill wearing a Hello Kitty hat from Comic Con or I should say Hello Kitty wearing Bill. True love!
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm going to miss this show.

HELLO KITTY DISNEY BLOG TRAILER 2014

 
Since I can't be at Comic Con I decided to release my own trailer today (less important but still had to be done) for my Hello Kitty Disney blog. Just another way for me to beg for a official collaboration between Disney and Hello Kitty. I'm going to need a castle if I'm going to collect both of these characters.
 



 

HELLO KITTY #TARGETRUN


My #targetrun consisted of nothing but Hello Kitty and no running because there was plenty of Hello Kitty waiting for me. I even got a iPhone case for only $5 in the dollar section.
 
 
I had to have this Hello Kitty birthday card which came with stickers.

OFF TOPIC: JIM SHORE'S ISLAND OF MISFIT TOYS


Jim Shore is a sell out and I'm not talking about the kind that sells out of their merchandise which he does but this is so much more than that. I purchased a Jim Shore Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer 50th Anniversary piece from QVC for almost $100 and all I got was a misfit toy. Yukon doesn't have his eyes, Bumbles has paint on him that doesn't belong on him, and one of the elves looks like she wasn't finished. I expected better from Jim Shore. I can see big companies like QVC and Enesco doing something like this. I don't expect much from greedy companies but this guy comes off as Americana with his famous quilt like designs.
 

Just another item made in china. No wonder people are buying more knockoffs nowadays. Why pay full price for half the work.

 
 As I can see, unlike poor Yukon, his eyes are so supposed to be black.
 
 
 
The dilemma I have now is that Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is basically about all the unwanted toys that weren't made correctly and that nobody wanted. I love this show and it makes me sad when the toys cry out that they aren't loved. So how can I give up on them too? I can't. I love them but I don't love greedy companies and owners who choose quantity over quality.

HELLO KITTY AT SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2014


The San Diego Comic Con is just another Hello Kitty event I can't make it to if I could ever get in. I'm not sure I'd want to anyway the way it's always packed to the max. I'm not really impressed with this years Hello Kitty exclusives. I don't understand why the Hello Kitty collaboration with DC comics isn't being used unless I'm speaking too soon? Hopefully.
 
 
 
 
I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it to Hello Kitty Con but I refuse to make any decisions on that just yet. I don't like to plan things too far in advance because a lot of the time things never work the way you want them to.
 
 

THE KISS HELLO KITTY RING NECKLACE


 
I'm not into jewelry but I think I have to have this Hello Kitty ring necklace. I'm not one of those woman who prefers to wear their wedding ring around their neck but Hello Kitty makes it look as if it belongs there.
 
There's even a Disney Mickey and Minnie collection. Two puzzle pieces fit together. Love this!
 
 
 

 
Now this is the real definition of a necklace Hello Kitty Dictionary!

HELLO KITTY TUXEDO DRESS PLUSH DOLL

 
I've wanted this Hello Kitty tuxedo dress plush for a long time but could never find her until now thanks to Ebay. I paid too much for her but it was well worth it. Now I can have a real night on the town.
 
 
 
 
   
 
It's photo booth time! Just another married couple dressing alike.

HELLO KITTY POP UP BOARD GAME AT YAYSAVE FOR SWAGBUCKS

 
I love using Swagbucks for Hello Kitty! It allows me to pay the bills or pay myself for Hello Kitty items. I've done both. Right now YaySave has a Hello Kitty board game for $12.99 and 156 Swagbucks.

IN THE NEWS: HELLO KITTY DICTIONARY


Apparently a Harper Collins Hello Kitty dictionary has been talking too much because it's definition of a necklace included it as a murder weapon. Why is Hello Kitty getting into so much trouble lately? It's bad enough criminals include her in their crime sprees but now the dictionary put it's foot in it's mouth.
 
 
 
I went to Ebay to see if this dictionary was there but it doesn't say whether this recalled version is the one that's listed. Talk about a collectors item. I'd love to have it.

HELLO KITTY PERFUME BOTTLE iPHONE CASE


These Hello Kitty perfume iPhone cases are so cute I may have to spend money I don't have on one. How fun would it be if they had actual perfume in them?
 
 
 
There's plenty of phone choices on Ebay!
 

HELLO KITTY DISNEY FONT WALL STICKERS


If it weren't for people's "fan art" and knockoffs I would have no Hello Kitty Disney mashups. I probably shouldn't say this because this might make me less of a Hello Kitty fan to some people but I love knockoffs! I can get what I'm looking for and sometimes I can get it for a low price. I'm not saying I don't buy official because official always comes first but if they aren't going to get on the Disney bandwagon then I need to feed my obsession (Sanrio created no less) from somewhere or I will lose my mind if I haven't already.
 
 
 
 
I've been watching QVC all weekend for Christmas in July and one of the hosts said it's extremely difficult to get with Disney. If that's the case Hello Kitty may never have a chance. What am I supposed to do, wait? America is all about instant gratification which means I need to honor my patriotic duties.

Since it's Christmas in July I thought I'd do a little Christmas shopping for Hello Kitty for myself. I should of gift wrapped these. Oh well too late.

HELLO KITTY BAKER DOLL AT TOYS R US

 
I didn't have any plans to buy these Hello Kitty dolls I've been seeing around town but it doesn't take long to change my mind. This Hello Kitty baker doll is too cute but I thought fishnets were supposed to be worn on the head when cooking in the kitchen.
 
 
 

HELLO KITTY HELLO 40: A 40TH ANNIVERSARY TRIBUTE BOOK


I may be looking forward to Hello Kitty's 40th Birthday but I'm  not looking forward to mine. It certainly won't be as grand as hers. They say with age comes wisdom and I've got enough "wisdom" for a bigger book.
 
 
 
HELLO KITTY HELLO 40: A 40TH ANNIVERSARY TRIBUTE BOOK
 
Available for Pre-Order
This item will be available on October 7, 2014
 
 
 
 
 

HELLO KITTY CAT DOG TOY PLUSH


This doesn't look like a dog toy to me. This looks like a Hello Kitty plush that belongs in my collection. It's almost Halloween so now would be a good time for me to buy it.

It doesn't take very long to earn a $5 Amazon gift card aka 450 Swagbucks with all the shopping, surveys, and offers the Swagbucks website offers. It only takes me a couple of days.

I found this cute Hello Kitty iPhone case for less than $5 with free shipping which makes this completely free. Not too mention the seller added extra freebies which makes this one of my favorite purchases to date.

HELLO KITTY SEATTLE SEAHAWKS SUPER BOWL XLVIII CHAMPION PLUSH

 
Darn it! It took me a month to get over the Denver Broncos losing Super Bowl XLVIII and now that horrible game has come back to haunt me in the form of a Hello Kitty plush supporting the Seattle Seahawks. This could of been a Broncos plush! I'm so upset now I can't even finish this blog.
 
 
 
 
Would I be a jerk if I bought this plush anyway? Maybe I have Stockholm Syndrome.

HELLO KITTY COLOR ME KITE


If I didn't already have a Hello Kitty kite I'd go fly this one after I colored it. Color me crazy for Hello Kitty! For someone who doesn't have a mouth she sure does talk a lot.
 
 
 

HELLO KITTY: PRIVATE SHOPPING LIST



Am I the only poor person in the world that has a private shopper in several different countries just for Hello Kitty? You'd think it was The Twilight Zone but no it's just the benefits of the internet. I've got a few in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea and I'm still looking for a Hong Kong shopper. I had a Hong Kong shopper a long time ago but the service was so bad they went out of business. I'd love to find one for Dubai so I can do some window shopping at the Hello Kitty Spa.  
 
 ✔ Taiwan EZSTAR
 
I just found Taiwan EZSTAR and I couldn't be happier. My first purchase with them was the Hello Kitty Jukebox from Yahoo Auctions Taiwan and it was easy. I got invoices and notifications every step of the way. I seem to be drawn to Hello Kitty items from Taiwan since the Hello Kitty CafĂ© and the Hello Kitty airport are there. This was a great find!
 
 


  ✔ BUYEE
 
Buyee is another shopping site that's a cross between Ebay and a personal private shopper. They're built like Ebay but list items from Yahoo Auctions Japan for overseas buyers. I haven't used them yet but the setup looks so easy I don't foresee any problems.
 
 
 
 
 
  ✔ PERSONAL SHOPPER JAPAN
 
Another favorite place of mine to buy Hello Kitty is from Personal Shopper Japan. She's a website of one but she's quick and efficient. I can pretty much request anything that's in Japan and she will find and get it for a reasonable fee.
 
 
 
 
  ✔ GMARKET
 
Gmarket is a shopping site in South Korea that offers worldwide shipping on many items. I haven't tried them yet but they have a ton of Hello Kitty items I've never seen before like Hello Kitty Scotch Tape.
 
 
 
 
One thing I've noticed about certain shopping sites like Gmarket is that there's more search results if I type in what I'm looking for in their native language.
