Today, November 1, 2010 is everyone’s favorite Japanese cat, Hello Kitty’s 36th birthday!
Some info you probably didn’t know about this Sanrio kitty is that she is the height of “five apples”, weight of “three apples”, and is “good at baking cookies”! Too cute 😉
First designed by Yuko Shimizu, the Hello Kitty trademark has since spread globally and generates billions of cash. Due to her cult-like following, you can purchase the Hello Kitty character on just about anything: pens, purses, stickers, toasters, tvs, cars, clothes, computers, etc.
MAC cosmetics previously teamed up with Sanrio to launch a Hello Kitty makeup collection. If you look hard, you can still find some items from the collection on eBay.
Miriam at BellaSugar gave herself a Hello Kitty manicure with a step-by-step guide on how to recreate her look.
