Happy Easter everyone! I got this amazing set of Hello Kitty Fabergé eggs by Formation Arts last year, but never gave them a proper blog post. I figured Easter would be the perfect time because 1) I always do a Hello Kitty post on Easter and 2) hello!? they’re eggs! If you’re looking to pick them up I think they’re been sold out everywhere for a really long time, sorry! Warning: I use the word “pretty” a lot in this post!
My favorite from the set (and supposedly the rarest, since they came blind boxed) is the French Princess Kitty (methinks it’s Marie Antoinette). Instead of the normal stand the other come with, French Princess comes with carriage wheels as a stand. All of the eggs can be lifted off their stands in case you have some magical, ulterior mode of displaying them. If you try and buy these now, French Princess Kitty is going to be the most expensive, so be warned!
The Chinese Empress Kitty has an amazing pose and really lovely scenery, the lotus flowers are so pretty and the background pieces really fill the space inside the egg. I think of all of them the Chinese Empress is the most dynamic. The scenery behind the Kitties is three dimensional too, so they’re worth admiring from every angle. The set really wasn’t that expensive when I picked it up and, for the money, the quality is amazing. I probably would have been willing to pay a lot more for the set than I did!
The English Queen Kitty (Queen Elizabeth?) is the only other egg besides French Princess that has an indoor setting. You can kind of see the pink floor in this picture and she’s holding the traditional orb and scepter. The color scheme of this egg is so beautiful, it’s my second favorite of the set; the eggs have satin and metallic finishes which look so pretty in person. It shows they put more thought into it, if they were phoning it in the whole piece would have one finish.
The Greek Goddess Kitty is next, the scene inside her egg is especially pretty, it has Grecian columns, flowers, and there’s a dove on top of the egg. The Kitty itself, with the angel wings, reminds me of the old Fairy Kitty series that they released years ago, there was a nature one that has a similar head piece, at least that’s how I remember it. The little stands are pretty and perfectly functional, but they could be a little wonky. You can see the front leg in the bottom, right corner slightly lifted up since, to keep all four feet on the ground, the egg would have had to be crooked.
Last but not least is Arabian Dancer Kitty, which I assume is based off of Arabian Nights. The pyramid and the crescent Moon in the background are really nice, even though this is my least favorite of the set I still wouldn’t part with it. The little beads make it kind of hard to set properly on the stand, but I like that the beads are so unique compared to the decorations on the others, which all have similar decorations on the outside, even though they’ve each been customized to fit the theme of their egg. Details!
So ends my rambling thoughts on the Hello Kitty Fabergé egg series for Easter! I’m spending the day with my family, if you celebrate Easter, I hope you have a fun day. Nothing will quite compare to the childhood thrill of searching for eggs at my grandparent’s house, but I’ll try to make due.
