Hello Kitty gets Tokidoki spin at 7-Eleven stores

SINGAPORE - Let your head explode from the extreme Hello Kitty cuteness.

Simone Legno, the Italian-born, United States-based designer in love with "kawaii" (Japanese for "cute") culture and famed for his Tokidoki figurines, has put his signature spin on one of the world's best-loved characters.

Kitty is now dressed in Legno's cactus suits, rides a scooter with whimsical Tokidoki character Adios, and is dressed as Tokidoki cow-character Leche.

Tokidoki designs have been featured on limited-edition Onitsuka Tiger sneakers and LeSportsac bags in the past.
