Hello Kitty "KittyRobot" Exhibition in Tokyo




For the past weeks, I’ve been revisiting my previous blog posts since the beginning of my blogging career, and check whether I can update some blog post that I believe still relevant for today.

Recycling articles isn’t bad, after-all, these are still informative and inspirational stories.

So back in August 2012, I’ve first posted about the Hello Kitty “Kittyrobot” Exhibition in Tokyo, thanks to my Tokyo friends who hooked me up for this exhibition
.
Read my post below and enjoy more than 100+ photos of your favorite Hello Kitty!

As the undisputed queen of Japanese kawaii, Hello Kitty has brought smiles to the faces of billions of people around the world. In addition to all of the fun products they sell, Kitty’s creators also want her to be a positive force in the world.

To this end, the “Kittyrobot” exhibition opened his week in Tokyo at Omotesando Hills with the goal of bringing both smiles and support to those affected by last year’s Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami.

The “Kittyrobot” exhibition features over one hundred customized Hello Kitty dolls created by Japanese and international celebrities. After the exhibition is over, these one-of-a-kind Hello Kitty dolls will be sold at a charity auction for earthquake relief.

Each of the creators has not only decorated their Kitty, but also shared their own “message to the future” to encourage a bright future for earthquake victims.

The exhibition itself is designed to immerse you in a futuristic Hello Kitty world. There is a giant Hello Kitty robot on one wall, a flying Hello Kitty suspended from the roof, and a giant winged Hello Kitty standing atop a rocket ship. There are even Hello Kitty games where you can try to bring an injured Kittyrobot back to life.

The list of celebrities who have customized Hello Kitty dolls is huge. Everyone from sports figures to bands (J-Pop & K-Pop) to TV stars and actors to fashion designers got in on the fun for the cause. Because we’re a fashion website, the dolls that caught our eye right away included Hello Kittys created by Sebastian Masuda of Harajuku’s 6%DOKIDOKI, Murua, Galaxxxy, Baby The Stars Shine Bright, Kumicky, Ayamo, Amo, Beams, JSG, Atmos, and dazzlin. Musicians included Ayumi Hamasaki, May’s, Puffy, N-Train, Misono, Kreva, Super Girls, Girl’s Day, and Girls Next Door.

The Kittyrobot exhibition runs August 12th-19th, 2012 at Omotesando Hills. The entrance fee for adults is 500 yen, for junior high & high school students is 300 yen, and younger children get in free.

The entire event is for charity, so whether you attend or bid on one of the dolls, it’s all for a good cause.

Oh I wish that there could be another sequel of this exhibition. It was oh so good, and the participants are so creative.

Can the Philippines have this similar concept using our Filipino dolls? If yes, I wouldn’t mind paying for entrance fee especially for a cause, and art appreciation.

Stay tune for more art exhibition from Japan!
