What-Dinner meetup at PMX

Where- The Cafe at the LAX Hilton in Los Angeles

Meet up at- the main lobby area of the hotel

When- Saturday at 6pm. (I'll be there at 5:45 and we'll wait until 6:15 for anyone running late.)

Everyone is welcome. You don't even have to be attending PMX. Sorry for the last minute notice. PM me if you'd like my cell # just in case. So, who can make it?

(cross posted to ca_egl, egl, pmx_lolita, and la_loligoth. Sorry if you see it more than once.)

UPDATE- We might go to a different nearby (still within walking distance) restaurant because more people responded than I expected (yay) and now I'm not so sure we will all fit at The Cafe. We'll decide as a group when we meetup if we want to go elsewhere.

Guest List-
lethalbanana + 1
rainb0wchan + 1

konekoanni + friends

I was just curious who all plans on going to PMX this year for the Angelic Pretty event? Tickets went on sale last night! :) http://pacificmediaexpo.info/2009/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=57

Will you be attending all events or are you just going for the fashion show and boutique?

Also, what are you wearing to the tea party? Are you sticking with Angelic Pretty, or wearing a different brand to stick with the Alice in Wonderland theme?

Would anyone be interested in a possible dinner meetup on Friday or Saturday night?

no no no
this community is not dead!

I'm sure many/most people have seen the PMX updates from the account pmx_fashion.
Tea party tickets went on sale last night, auctions for head table go live tonight.

The theme of the Angelic Pretty Tea party is Alice in Wonderland.

Does anybody have any good Alice Lolita that'd like to share to celebrate the theme?

5th-Nov-2008 01:24 am - Turbo Twisted Tea Party
PMX Twisted Tea Party is getting a make-over! It is now Turbo Twisted Tea Party.

The Turbo Twisted Tea Party is an event where you and your team display your costuming and presentation skills. The goal of this event is simple: create a living visual exhibit of an Asian Pop Culture Tea Party complete with table setting, costumes, and props. (Backdrops and skits optional) The set up can be any genre, such as Gothic Lolita, Korean Drama, Video Games, Anime, Ball-jointed Dolls or any Asian Pop Culture theme you can imagine. This is a great opportunity for all you budding costume, interior and visual communication designers to combine forces and create a stunning exhibit.

The event is designed to promote and encourage Asian Pop Culture inspired artists to challenge themselves, and be recognized for their achievements. Turbo Twisted Tea Party is an exhibit of talents without peer pressure, rather than a competition. An award will be given to the group who demonstrates the greatest artistic potential, and innovations that benefit the community as a whole.

Rules and procedures:
• All participants must be registered members of PMX, and must also pre-register with Twisted Tea Party Hostess by November 5th, 2008. A rough sketch and brief project explanation are also required for entry. Please supply your entry, along with JPEG or PNG graphics, so we can have a visual reference. Please send all entries to: lolita@pacificmediaexpo.com. We are unable to receive entries and submissions via conventional mail.
• Your innovation(s) must be clearly documented and made available for public non-profit use.
• If your exhibit has already won a prize from another event you may still showcase your exhibit, but you will not be eligible for prizes. This event is for showcasing new talent, rather than exhibits that have previously swept other conventions for awards.
• Combined weight of your scenery (excluding costumes), must be less than 75 pounds.
• Maximum of six (6) people in each group. Five (5) may be part of the set scenery; one (1) person in each group should play the role of a curator who interfaces with the public and press.
• If your entry includes a scenery, it must fit within a rectangular space no larger than 11 feet by 13 feet. Theatrical stands, trusses, and clamps may be used, but you must observe fire and safety regulations.
• Only faux food or drinks should be used.
• All productions must be rated PG-13 or less (i.e. your grandmother should be able to view it without needing medical attention).
• Each group may have access to a circular table and five (5) hotel style chairs, or two (2) benches. You have the option of one power outlet with maximum power consumption of 1 amp; please bring your own extension cords. Describe your powered equipment in your entry, as PMX needs to review it for fire and safety regulations. All powered equipment must be approved prior to the event.
• Common courtesy demands that elements such as music, fog, or aromas which may invade your neighbors' exhibits must be kept under control. For example, consider how museum exhibits are set up. Please discuss any such elements in your exhibit beforehand.
• Event participants will have access to the Turbo Twisted Tea Party exhibit room for at least 1 hour of setup time prior to the event. This may be earlier in the day, exact time TBA. Between setup and the event itself the Turbo Twisted Tea Party exhibit room will be closed and locked.
• A mandatory orientation meeting (for sign-in, inventory, and general communication) will be held on the event day, exact time TBA.

Prize procedure:

During the exhibit the hostess will examine your creation and form an opinion rating. Your curator (your group representative) will be asked a number of questions about your exhibit. Some common questions will be:

* What are your inspiration(s) for this project?
* What aspects of your project contribute to the community?
* How was it constructed?
* What is your overall message to viewers, and why did you choose this message?
* Why did you choose a given material for some aspect of your project?
* What special features does your exhibit have? Can you demonstrate them?

I just wanted to post a grand thank you for all of the hard work done by everyone of Cosplay Oneesan and wanted to show how much I (and everyone else, I'm sure!) appreciate bringing Angelic Pretty and all of the Lolita events to PMX.

So, thank you, Cosplay Oneesan!
10th-Nov-2007 01:26 am - PMX 2001 Day 1
This is going to be a quick one without any pics because I was too busy running around working the con! But I did have breakfast at 9 and I had lunch around.. uh... 5 PM?

So anyway, the sales at the AP Magical Boutique were brisk like crazy all day the first day. Lines to get in galore because of the appointment system. However, because everyone was buying like crazy (markup was negligible.. really...) one report I got from a loli staffer she said, all the skirts that AP brought to PMX were SOLD OUT by 2:00 PM (and I wanted to buy a skirt!!).

By the time 6:00 PM rolled around, they were down to 10% of their stock. Seriously.

I predict that by 11 AM tomorrow, the Angelic Pretty Magical Boutique will be COMPLETELY sold out. The only thing that will be left will be the fixtures. So hurry on down and buy whatever you can because nothing will be left! Also...
