Vote Hello Kitty at LivingSocial’s New Pop-Up

Join the Friendship Party and vote Hello Kitty for President! Hello Kitty has set up Campaign HQ at LivingSocial’s 918 F Street NW office for fun giveaways, art, curated activities, collectible merchandise, Sephora makeovers, games, and more! You can also meet Presidential Hello Kitty and her running mate, Tuxedo Sam.

Hello, Hello Kitty!

If Sasha could vote, Hello Kitty would likely be her write-in, so we paid a visit to the pop-up event this afternoon, and my little Hello Kitty fan was not disappointed. She was immediately adorned with a paper crown (complete with side bow, of course) along with campaign buttons and other adorable shwag.

Upstairs, there is a cosmetics area where guests can get a Sephora makeover before their photo op in front of a “Hello Kitty at the White House” screen. And much of that level is a retail shop with loads of limited edition collectibles, including Hello Kitty campaign shirts, one-of-a-kind (and priced that way) paintings, plush toys, totes, and more. Staff let us know that proceeds from the event benefit 826DC and the American Red Cross to help support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

And the candidate herself was there with her running mate. Sasha, however, was so starstruck she shied away from a photo. But for a fun outing and a little shopping for a Hello Kitty fiend, this pop-up definitely gets our vote.

Hello Kitty’s Pop Up Campaign HQ will be at LivingSocial’s 918 F Street through November 6. It’s open 10am – 8pm everyday, except for November 3 when it closes at 5pm. There is no admission fee, and anyone is welcome to pop in.  Oh, and I heard there is going to be wine this weekend!

    That is too cute! My daughter is taking my three year old granddaughter to this event. Wish I could see her but I live in Kansas!

  2. Headed to rock our vote for Hello Kitty today and then perhaps the wax museum! Thanks to Sasha’s mom for always giving us great kidfriendly options to fill our our weekends at home.

    Hello.
    I attended a Hello Kitty Living Social in Washington D.C.. And I had such a great time, but there is on question I do have. I was wondering if someone can tell me where were the cupcakes for this event purchased? They were pretty amazing!!
