Stunning 2013 Hello Kitty Swarovski Model
The fictional character named Hello Kitty was created by a Japanese company named Sanrio, more specifically by Yuko Shimizu. If you thought that the little white Japanese bobtail cat is a relatively new product, you’d be wrong, since Hello Kitty’s first appearance on an item dates all the way back to 1974. Nowadays, Hello Kitty represents a worldwide marketing phenomenon that brings in about $5 billion a year, so it comes as no surprise that highly valuable avatars of the famed cat are being created at a regular basis.
The latest of the lot is this incredible Hello Kitty Swarovski model adorned with 22,000 glistening Swarovski crystals. The crystals were applied using a very complex technique called Pointiage, and they come in three stunning color variations named Red Magma, Sunflower and Crystal Moonlight. The item is part of a very limited edition of just 88 units, and it comes with a spicy price tag of $8,550.
