Hello Kitty Couture

I know that it is going to be a truly Hello Kitty Hellish day when my wife screams, “OMG!! You’ve got to come here and look at this!!!! It is soooooo cute!” I should have learned by now when those words exit my wife’s mouth, the only logical course of action is to induce some life threatening injury to myself and hope that I die before I am forced to see whatever hideous Hello Kitty item has made her squeal with such joy. Alas, somewhere my mind makes a grave judgemental error and stops me from doing the merciful thing by rationalizing that Hello Kitty Hell can’t possible get any worse than it already is. That, of course, is proven to be incorrect time and again and I realize that death would have been a lot less painful than having to see and hear about yet another Hello Kitty item.

This is especially true when it comes to Hello Kitty fashion. There is something that makes Hello Kitty fanatics believe that anything Hello Kitty makes clothes look cute, while the rest of us simply want to vomit when seeing it. I can’t think of a better example than this monstrosity which my wife thinks is absolutely fabulous:

Hello Kitty runway fashion

I know, I know. You’re looking at that and saying to yourself that it must be a Halloween party costume or something (while valiantly trying to keep the food in your stomach). Any normal person has to make an assumption like this because it is simply too difficult to perceive that anyone, even a Hello Kitty fanatic, could view something like this as high fashion. Unfortunately, it is all too real…

So as you sit looking at your computer in disbelief, rejoice in that fact that you are not living with someone that actually is searching for one of these and has decided that if she can’t find one, she will make one herself (see, I knew a self inflicted wound and quick death — or even a long, drawn out death — would have been less painful…) And pray that the next time my wife shouts those words, I have enough sense to put myself out of my Hello Kitty Hell misery…

  1. You’re not that lucky, cause I’m a Hello Kitty fans here, aha. Just sort of scheme through the newspapers that was published last week, although the newspaper was already covered with my dog’s pee and poo, I still managed to find out your website, that’s mainly because of the ‘Hello Kitty’ word means a lot to me eh? May I know where are you located? Because at here where I stay certainly do not have SO many types of Hello Kitties available for us fans to buy. And even though I’m a fans of it, I do realize that : anything related to this cat is darn expensive. I’ve learned that thus I tried to resist from going to the Hello Kitty store and the ebay, or even yahoo, because I always do things without thinking, esp when it comes to Hello Kitty. I’ve been wondering, you know, if you hate Hello Kitty that much while your wife love Hello Kitty that much, I guess you sure love your wife very much? Ha!~ Have fun with your Hello Kitties, would like to have updates on Kitties’ products… πŸ™‚

  2. I find this amusing. Seriously — if anyone wore that out in public, I’d scream with laughter. I’m a HK fan but come on people, there is a limit…and in the words of animal lovers…”Why would you sacrifice the love of HK to cover your own body?” That’s truly satanic.

  3. Okay, I’m a fan and this is just DISTURBING. I can’t even say the ‘c’ word.
    I hope this wasn’t done by a designer, but by a 5 yr. old. Y I K E S

  4. No one wears ‘couture’ out in public, it’s mainly intended as an excuse for artists (which designers still are) to let out the crazy. =) They create ONE OF A KIND outfits that no one ever buys or wears just to show off how well they are doing, the extents of their madness/creativity/etc.

    So, unless your wife whips out a sewing machine she will never get her hands on it, nothing to worry about.

    Also, why did you watermark that photo? I’ve seen it before without that mark.

  5. I think it’s adorable, but I wouldn’t dare wear it in public because it might get ruined!!!! I think that same idea would work with a comforter, or a duvet cover. You could just stitch all your HKs right on!! CUTE!!!!!!!

  6. WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!!

    That is disgusting. Wow. I wonder how many drugs that designer was on when they decided to create that . Good lord, that is an atrocity.

  7. Yo, me again. πŸ˜€ Managed to read through all your posts last night, which eventually caused some pimples on my face today. O_o” I think I sort of can understand what’s your situation then. I’m not that crazy about Hello Kitties, there’s always a limit, I think, as for your wife.. I’m not too sure.. Since you’re from US, I don’t think you know that your website has been published on the newspaper at the country I’m staying now? That’s how I found your website.

    p/s : I never like Hello Kitty plushes, I think they are a waste of money, having them ON my clothes are even worse. πŸ˜€


  8. Holy crap dude, that is the fugliest thing i have EVER seen. I just have to laugh my butt off at the things they come out with. I mean who the hell is going to wear that? I mean besides your wife. wow, i sooooo feel for you. πŸ™ I mean gosh i like hello kitty and everything but after reading all your blogs…im starting to think i’d be better off……….


  10. HAHA
    WOW. on one hand, this stuff, even for hello kitty, is really freaking creepy. like, i like hello kitty to a normal extent, but i wouldn’t walk around wearing hello kitty DOLLS. but on the other hand, if my husband ever talked this much trash about something i liked, no matter how obsessive i was about it,
    dude. i wouldn’t send him down to the hello kitty sleeping bag on the couch; more like, hello kitty sleeping bag on the sidewalk in front of our house.
    luckily for you, your wife isn’t so obsessive that she divorces you for your disrespect towards her obsessions.
    but other than that, i pretty much agree with you about the whole evil hello kitty is out to take over the world thing.
    good luck conqouring that :]

  11. Oh my God. You’re right, death would be less painful. Be think about this : http://shop.sanrio.jp/cm/cmc-155420/.

    You see? With this credit card made of gold, your wife could buy this clothes with Hello Kitty in her purse. Think that Hello Kitty Hell is always easier today than tomorrow… I think…

  12. this is hilarious. only for the runway right?? even if she makes one herself, she can’t get very far bogged down by 20 pounds of HK

  13. I love Hello Kitty. I really do, and I really do enjoy everything that she comes out with and I think she is the cutest thing ever. BUT, this is not cute. I have to agree with you on this one.
    I read your blog everyday and I subject my husband to the same things that you have to go through with your wife, so believe me, you are not alone. Some people in “Hello Kitty Land” are really cruel and I do not believe that she would like some of the things that these people are saying to you. Well, I enjoy your blog and I would be really disappointed if I could not read it everyday, whether you hate her or not, so keep up the good work? “I” appreciate you.

  14. omg, i love hello kitty and i definately think that’s a hideous dress anyway. btw, this entire hello kitty hell thing is halarious!!! good job, even though I’ll most likely be a hello kitty wife on day too… haha πŸ˜›

  15. Love Hello Kitty…hate Heatherette. No one who works at Heatherette should be called an artist.

    This is my first post here so I just want to give you kudos. I enjoy your blog because I’m a Hello Kitty lover with a sense of humor. Lucky for me, my boyfriend appreciates Hello Kitty. =^.^=

  16. OH DEAR LORD!!! I am a hello kitty fanatic to an extent…. but this is just… crap! it gives her no figure and will give me nightmares! Some designers have no flare whatsoever. Ugh!

  17. That chick could fall out of an airplane without a parachute and still live. Got enough hello kitty cushion there.

    Love the look on the model’s face. She looks PISSED.

    I totally agree. I’ll bet that the models were all duking it out in the back to see who had to wear this thing.

  19. omg

    my girl friend is the same exact way
    she drives me crazy

    she just said “i swear if they had a hello kitty house somewhere i’d by it”

    yeah i know right


    …kitty hell… been there


  20. NOT a HK fan and you are correct..that is vomit inducing. I’m not a fan of pointing and laughing but I would literally fall to the ground and roll with laughter while pointing at anybody who is crazy enough to wear this in public.

  21. Becoming a bit boring now. This story has been recycled since last posted 6 years ago. Nothing new on this site any more??
