25,000 Hello Kitty fanatics made it to the convention center in LA for the very first Hello Kitty convention.
Kids and adults and kidlike adults made it down to the festivities. Many fans are still shocked at the recent revelation that Hello Kitty is not actually a cat, but a catlike human girl.
Fans still support her, even human fans.
Anyhow, this convention has it all. It’s celebrating 40 years of Hello Kitty, after all. I guess we’re going to see more Hello Kitty activity in the US, maybe with an even bigger convention next year.
