Hello Kitty to put the Johnny Cupcakes twist on this celebrated icon just in time for Halloween. We hope everyone enjoys this special treat, but be forewarned, the trick will be getting a chance to grab one of these coveted items before they’re sold out as last year’s release was wiped out in just 24 hours!

Sold out within 24 hours of release in 2011, Johnny Cupcakes x Hello Kitty is back with a new limited-edition collection of tees for the 2012 Halloween extravaganza. The t-shirt brand with a recipe for success, Johnny Cupcakes has teamed up with Sanrio® to put its quirky, spooktacular spin on the iconic imagery of Hello Kitty, creating an exclusive series of Halloween-themed tees, surprise hoodie and accessories for adults and kids.
