Embarrass Your Cat with a Sanrio Mascot Hat
Is your Halloween ready for Hello Kitty inception? Dress your cat as some of Sanrio‘s best characters courtesy of Kawaii Kawaii Neko no Kiburimono (Cute Cute Cat’s Head Gear). Each hat is only 600 yen (US$5.25) and can be purchased via capsule toys starting on October 19. If your cat is the agreeable type, this is their chance to be Hello Kitty, Cinnamon, Pompompurin, My Melody, Kuromi, or Kirimi-chan this Halloween. If you are unfortunately cat-less, the hats also double as cute plush toy accessories.
The Neko no Kiburimono capsule toy series first launched in September 2015. The dress-up hats are also available at Kawaii Kawaii Neko Land locations inside 19 stores throughout Japan.
Previous cat hats were fruit, rabbit, Funyassi, and sheep themed, among others.
Sanrio‘s previous pet costumes were more geared for small dogs. Attack on Titan opened a Survey Corps division for pups.
