Breaking News: Hello Kitty Is Not A Cat

  • You guys, this is very important: according Christine R. Yano, who wrote a book last year about Kitty’s rise to fame, “Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.” Well, this is good to know even if it has shaken us to our core. [The Mary Sue]
  • Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie will film some “crazy sex scenes” for their upcoming movie “By The Sea.” All that’s known about the film at this point is that the two will play a married couple. Angelina has hinted about retiring from acting, so this film could be her last. [Us Weekly]

Hello Kitty & Playboy Team Up On A Camera

Hello Kitty & Playboy Team Up On A Camera

This new limited edition Leica camera combines Hello Kitty and the Playboy bunny, because wh0 doesn’t want a twee cartoon cat adorned with those famous bunny ears? I mean, they both have major birthdays this year (Hello Kitty turns 40 and Playboy turns 60), so I guess that’s as good an excuse to pair them off as any. And go figure, it’s Playboy who is going for the younger woman. Keep reading »

Today In Creepy: Do You Like The Look Of Hello Kitty Contact Lenses?

hello kitty contacts

It’s not so unusual to have a stockpile of Hello Kitty-themed waffle irons, toasters, tattoos, and toe socks, but apparently some fans want to take it a step further. These questionably creepy contacts are oversized for anime-like effect and offer the stunning design of Hello Kitty heads swirling around the pupil, with the option of either hearts of flowers floating amongst them. Nope, not terrifying at all. While these aren’t the first Hello Kitty contacts to hit the market (previous designs were far more scary-looking), they are the first to be anti-radiation. Um, yay? There are eight different color options being sold by Fall In Eyez and I.Candy. Personally, I’m holding out for somebody to put Chococat on my eyewear. [InventorSpot]

Listen, I know, sometimes we just want to be cute. Cute is fine, but in my estimation, this dress goes over the cliff from cute to infantilizing. This “Kawaii Not?” dress from Modcloth puts a Hello Kitty face on your boobs, and just seems like an adult-man repeller. But what do you think?

Just now, as I was walking to get lunch, I spied a guy with a beautiful huge husky dog walking down 5th Avenue. Because I’m a total dog perv, I was checking the pup out, and then I looked up at the guy, and realized he was wearing what I thought was a Hello Kitty shirt. How cute, I thought. But then I looked closer: It said “Hello Titty.” And no, this guy wasn’t some overgrown frat boy just out of high school — this was a solidly middle-aged man, wearing a ridiculous Hello Kitty parody shirt. This is fucked up for a number of reasons — the fact that Hello Kitty is fairly well marketed to young girls and women, to start. But also? This guy should be ashamed of wearing something so ridiculously sexist and inappropriate in public (and also, not very clever). So yes, feminism, meet (one of) your (many) reasons to exist.
