Street Fighter x Sanrio Collection Now Available at WeLoveFine.comJun 5th 2012
Los Angeles, CA, 06/04/12 — The first six designs in the Street Fighter x Sanrio collection are now available online exclusively at WeLoveFine.com! For fans of Japanese anime, video games and kawaii culture, it's a match made in heaven: CAPCOM's legendary action-packed arcade and console classic Street Fighter merged with the adorable characters of Hello Kitty and Friends from Sanrio. This meeting of two fantastic, fan-beloved character brands has been anticipated for many months, and WeLoveFine.com has the first apparel offering with t-shirts priced at $25 each.
Hello Kitty and her pals in the Sanrio universe - pouty penguin Badtz-Maru, sweet little bunny My Melody, wide-eyed frog Keroppi and many more - are a colorful group of playful personalities, and that wide diversity provides a terrifically fun opportunity to "mash-up" the characters with the wild crew of Street Fighter's martial-arts extravaganza. Thus, Hello Kitty steps into the trademark hair buns and brocade dress of Street Fighter Heroine Chun-Li, while spiky-haired protagonist Ryu is a perfect cosplay for Badtz-Maru's black spiky 'do! Don't let the blond braids on My Melody fool you, she's perfectly cast as tough-girl soldier Cammy; meanwhile, a trademark orange mohawk transforms Keroppi into green-skinned brawler Blanka. (A much cuter version of him, anyway!) Either posing on their own or ready to battle in the various "stages" that recall the locations of the video game, these designs are clever and irresistable!
In the first six offerings from the Street Fighter x Sanrio Collection, WeLoveFine.com offers four mens' designs as well as two fitted tees in womens' sizes, all featuring "Chun-Li" Hello Kitty and pals ready for action! There will be many more designs on the way in the coming weeks in this group, including many more variations on characters and both mens and womens' apparel.
