Crafting for Kids: Hello Kitty Piñata
This may look like a charming, childhood scene but don't be fooled: those girls have malice in their hearts, and it's all aimed at poor old Hello Kitty. What she's done wrong, we don't know - but what we do know is that these final sad images were taken shortly before she was beaten to a pulp, with sticks!
The reason for this seemingly unprovoked act of anti-feline violence becomes more obvious when you learn that Kitty's head was stuffed to the whiskers with sweets. She's a Piñata Kitty made by Ikat Bag - who was initially concerned that her papier mache mix had made the cat's head too strong, but reported that "it fell apart perfectly, thanks to some very good slugging by the kids."
