Playground: Pure CSS Illustration of Hello Kitty

Inspired by some cool things I had seen achieved using CSS3 selectors, I decided to try my hand at illustrating Japan's favourite cat using only HTML and CSS.

I don't believe that CSS was ever intended to be used for illustration, so there was a lot of tweaking in order to get things looking right, especially across browsers. In fact, I was quite surprised how differently certain portions rendered in different browsers — particularly between Firefox and different versions of the Webkit rendering engine used by Safari and Chrome.
