Check out our interview with Hayley Mitchell, one of our super fans who loves Hello Kitty so much she included her in her wedding!
What was the first Hello Kitty product you bought and in what year?
I’ve loved Hello Kitty since I was 18. I first started to notice her in H&M when they had a lot of Hello Kitty items and clothing. I had Hello Kitty wallpaper and bedding at one point! Even my car is Hello Kitty themed with plush Hello Kitty headrests!
What is your favourite Hello Kitty item in your collection?
I like to collect Hello Kitty TY beanies and plushies. They make up most of my collection. However, my favourite Hello Kitty items are my porcelain Nao figurines. My favourite is the Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel wedding figure which was a wedding gift from my parents. Everyone knows how much I love Hello Kitty, which is why she had to play a part in my wedding! My bouquet was made with small Hello Kitty plushies that matched my pink flowers. Instead of a wedding cake, I chose to have Hello Kitty chocolates with a Hello Kitty token which could be exchanged for an ice cream.
What collaboration would you love to see in the future?
I would love to see a collaboration between Hello Kitty and Lego. I think that a Lego version of Hello Kitty and all her friends would be adorable.
How would you describe your relationship with Hello Kitty?
My relationship with Hello Kitty is still going strong and I seek her out wherever I go! I made sure to go to Cutter & Squidge café to enjoy the Hello Kitty afternoon tea this summer and I also went to the Topshop pop-up. I would love to go to Singapore to visit the Hello Kitty cafes and of course, a trip to Puroland in Japan would be amazing!
Thank you for your lovely story, Hayley and congrats on the wedding! We love the Hello Kitty bouquet!
