40TH ANNIVESARY HELLO KITTY


This is a Hello Kitty doll that I made for my daughter.  This is an adaptation of a plush Hello Kitty that was given the fist 25,000 fans that entered the 2014 Hello Kitty Con in Los Angeles, CA.  This is the next in a series of Hello Kitty dolls that I have a plan to make.  My daughter is a huge Hello Kitty fan.
