Last night I stopped by the Hello Kitty masquerade ball at the Royal-T in Los Angeles. I was very surprised to see a line of 3-400 people waiting to get in. I was very lucky because they were letting the artists in without having to wait:) Some people waited 3 hours to go in. There were many handsome cosplayers. I dressed as Dokin-chan from Anpanman.
I made a video for my Japanese channel that shows a small part of the long line and some of the costumes.
The three week Hello Kitty anniversary celebration ends Sunday. Goodbye, Kitty.
