Hello Kitty turns 35 in style

On occasion of her birthday we have the "Super Hello Kitty Jewel Doll."

The news release describes her in detail:

"studded with a 1.027 carat diamond on its ribbon, 403 pink sapphires on its body, a citrine for its yellow nose, black spinels for its eyes and a total of 1,939 pieces of white topaz for its head on a platinum body. Luxury crystal maker Swarovski, Japanese toy firm Sanrio and Japanese jewelery maker I.K. unveiled the 10.5 cm-tall Hello Kitty, which is priced at $15 million yen (about $167,000)."

Won't find that in the 100 yen shop!

Tagawa on my shoulder

Suiho Tagawa has hunted me a bit since seeing them at the Kyoto International Manga Museum. You can't really pick these up at Borders, so Tim Hensley of Blog Flume pull together a nice lil slide show of animations and comic excerpts. Check it here.

I was kicking myself for not taking pics then I realized that I used someone else's camera. Ben maybe...? I'm gonna get you. There was no way I would have left that place with out any!
