Costume Plushies + AVCon + Scooter

It's July, and you know what that means?


Yup, all department stores are having them, and Target's opened at midnight on Thursday.

Thursday night I headed to the shops, unplanned, with my friend. I was curious about the toy sale so we casually went to check it out. And to my surprise, found these two ADORABLE little babies:

HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! My poor *guy* friend had to put up with my excessive squealing, jumping around the had to follow me around the shops while I proudly held them up *big grin*

I checked Target's online catalogue later and found out that there were in fact FOUR costume HK plushies. The store I visited were overstocked with the bear and tiger, but didn't have any sheep or the other one (it's grey).

I sent the boyfriend to check the Target near his place, no luck, still the brown ones left. I ventured to the Target near my place on Saturday and found ONE white sheep left. I checked the city store and after searching four different stores, still can't find the grey one! :(

Oh, they were $15 each! Down from $20.

The hunt continues ..


AVCon (anime & video convention) was last weekend. I've never been and I've been meaning to go for a few years now, just to check it out. Anyways I headed there on Sunday with my friend. Entry was $30 but luckily at the door, some lady was willing to give us 2 passes for $15 each - HALF PRICE! So we took it.

I suppose I'm not really into anime. Or video games. They had a few stalls though, and I found one called 'Kawaii Imports'. They import stuff here basically. Anyway they had a heap of Hello Kitty, so I picked up a 4-in-1 pen (blue, black and red pen plus a pink highlighter) and some stamps:

It was alright I suppose, you'd have to be REALLY into anime and gaming to enjoy it. Mm, other than that it was good :)


So my next purchase kinda .. doesn't need explaining? Well it does. But yeah. See for yourself:



No idea WHAT came over me when I bought it, I looked back a few days later and realised it was just sitting there and thought .. I'm never gonna use this, am I? But seriously, IT'S A SCOOTER! *excited* LOL it's actually uber adorable, and no I don't care if I look like a massive douche riding it. YEAH I'M GONNA RIDE IT LOL. Summer is gonna be awesome, gonna bring it to the beach and parks and ride around .. no joke. It's barely adjustable to my height and the weight limit is 50kg, meaning it's obviously designed for kids. The lady suggested some other scooters though .. but I don't really need a scooter. And I wouldn't buy one if it wasn't Hello Kitty!


Tomorrow I'm venturing off to Sydney, AGAIN. I'm definitely gonna check out Maruyu, it's about a 2-minute walk from my hotel? Paddy's Markets, Chinatown, Market City are at the top of my list for Hello Kitty hunting!

On a side note, gonna be attending WINTERBEATZ, going on a dinner cruise along Sydney Harbour and doing lots and lots of shopping!

Spotted this sign outside a store in Melbourne:

Guess which store it was?!













I'm actually so, so, SO tempted to pick up the phone and call up that store to see if I can mail them my resume or something. Yeah, it's in Melbourne, so what? LOL I wanna move out of Adelaide one day anyway. Preferably to Sydney. Although Melbourne OR Sydney are both good options, I'm fantasizing right now about telling everyone I'm moving interstate to live by myself, attend a better uni *cough* which in turn will provide me with better job opportunities, plus work at the Sanrio store - I'd be all like I'M LIVING MY DREAM!


Picked these up at Duchess along Swanston street:

I go there every single time I'm in Melbourne to buy BAGS! They're so cute and insanely cheap - the place also stocks a heap of Japanese-y shoes, phone accessories and of course, slippers :) These were $19.95.

Also got this scarf from Dangerfield:

The tag reads 'Hello Hello Scarf'. It also came in red with white polka dots which looked a lot nicer, the only downside was that the bow was BLACK! :( How emo .. so I opted for the red bow. $18.

Gah thing is I've been meaning to go to Dangerfield in Adelaide for A LONG TIME to get this scarf, like 4 weeks maybe? But I'm never in the city so I actually waited until I went to Melbourne because sadly, buying it interstate was more convenient than me buying it here LOL lazyyyy.

Tokidoki x Hello Kitty Charm Bracelet

YES! Got home and had a lovely little brown box waiting for me. Firstly, let's start with the stamps:

HOW ADORABLE! The seller is located in Japan, this box was mailed from Japan hence the cute little stamp and return address sticker!

Now for the all important item ..

AHHHHHH IT'S SO CUTE! To be honest it's A LOT bigger than I expected, the charms are HUGE! I kinda looked at it like .. oh .. can I wear this out? I probably will anyway.

The invoice that came with the package had this stamp on it:

THE WHOLE THING WAS JUST SO CUTE! It was around AU$80-something, the bracelet itself was US$59.99, postage was only US$7. If you're after authentic Japanese items, do check out the seller on eBay! Lots of Pokemon/Hello Kitty/Tokidoki!

Ailillui Store <- click click!

THANK YOU SO MUCH to my lovely boyfriend who gave me the money to buy this from eBay! =D


I'm forcing myself to stay awake and blog about this, I'm heading to Melbourne tomorrow! .. again LOL for anyone that's followed my blog for a while, this is my third time to Melbourne this year. The last time I went, which was April 29th, I came across this store:

Which I totally forgot to blog about when I came back before! But yeah, some Korean store down Bourke St. .. it's overpriced. But stocks tons of cute things, not just Hello Kitty! But mm, shall be back later this week to blog if I come back with any awesome Kitty goodies -- probably not, since I'm saving my dosh for Sydney :)

p.s. waiting on Happy Party with Hello Kitty & Friends for Nintendo DS and some Hello Kitty laptop stickers in the mail!

Toodles! x
