Back from L.A.!

We are back from going down to L.A. for the Hello Kitty Fashion show.

It was such an amazing and interesting experience, and I’m so happy and honored to have been a little part of it!

There will be professional pics of all the outfits and also video of the actual show (there were two shows that night), so I think I will wait for those to appear before really posting anything!!!

But just so my blog is not vacant, here are a few things from Saturday night:

Me and Shrinkle being cute and sexy as always:

I forced Hairy to sit down and have the special Hello Kitty High Tea with me which included mini desserts and mini Hello Kitty sammiches!! Here’s me after we took a few bites out of the Hello Kitty cookie head:

I believe so far I sold my felted Hello Kitty bow purse and this tube top that I made giant crocheted Hello Kitty bow/brooches for. The gal who bought the purse came up to me and told me she bought it. She was also holding another red Hello Kitty bow purse that she already had!!! I’m so tickled that she wanted another! I still have a Hello Kitty scarf and fingerless mitts to sell. I believe that they will be posted online via JapanLA for sale, but I’m not sure exactly. I will let you guys know!

I gave my sample cake-purse a test run that night. It held up perfectly well. The dangle cherry zipper pulls were like soft and fuzzy stress balls. I felt like I was holding a stuffed animal the whole night. BONUS.

After the fashion show, we went back to our motel so I could change clothes (I was wearing a really cute cake-inspired dress by Nicole Lindner but I wasn’t wearing the right bra for it and was getting a little nippley….yikes….I didn’t know until I went to the ladies room…. also I am not confident in my ability to pull off an asymmetrical-topped dress, it somehow made me feel extra naked?), anyway, after getting back into some jeans, we watched Saw 6 finally and then ate at Canter’s Deli after that! Late night!

I tried to work on my crochet projects as much as possible whenever we had down time. I didn’t get a whole lot done, but something is better than nothing! Waffle cowl in progress!

The dark brown part is sparkly!!!! I’m calling it CINNAMON.

This apparently was in the men’s bathroom at one of our pit stops on the way home. The ladies did not get anything like this!!

So for the next few days, I will be furiously making stuff for the New People Artist Village on Friday night and all day Saturday!!! Don’t forget to come to J-Town and say hi! (But you need to RSVP and email New People if you want to receive an invitation to the preview night/Friday night from 6pm-8pm).
