Hello Kitty’s already conquered the world. She’s on airplanes, high-class jewelry and Stratocaster guitars. She was named ambassador of Japanese tourism to China and Hong-Kong in 2008. Heck, she was even in a Super Robot Wars… April Fools’ Day joke. And now, to celebrate her 40th anniversary, she’s getting a convention this Fall at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Downtown LA’s Little Tokyo — Hello Kitty Con 2014.
HK Con 2014 will feature a wide variety of Hello Kitty-themed activities and amenities, including a Hello Kitty Super Supermarket selling “limited edition convention exclusives & products,” a Hello Kitty Retrospective display showcasing the history of the character, a Vintage Boutique selling “rare Hello Kitty collectibles,” along with typical convention fare like lectures, panel discussions, classes and workshops all themed after the world’s most popular Japanese bobtail.
Conventiongoers will also get free access to an event at the Japanese American National Museum called “Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty,” which is practically right down the street from the Museum of Contemporary Art. Perfect.
HK Con is going down from October 30 to November 2, with Adult tickets running $30/day and child tickets going for $20/day. Children ages 5 and under get in for free.
