Shannon Grunewald is obsessed wih Hello Kitty. Most of the objects she uses in her everyday life involve Hello Kitty in some way, and she’s collected everything from Hello Kitty toilet paper to daimond jewlery. Why does she love Hello Kitty so much? “Hello Kitty is SO cute it allows me to embrace the part of me that refuses to grow up.”
Shannon loves the cute culture produced by Japan’s post-bubble society, and is planning a trip there soon where she will spend most of her time and money in the Harajuku District purchasing lots of tiny plastic objects covered in glitter.
