The tea party was suppose to start at 3pm and the guests started to trickle in.
Dan, in the kodona outfit, won Best Coordi for the day! Bout time a kodona won ;D She's really really cute irl! (We made her wear a Baby dress at the end but that's another story)
More guests coming in~
The gorgeous decorations done by aserett and yueqian! Their inspiration was AP's Sugary Carnival XD They spent the night before the party awake and busily cutting and pasting~
They really really wanted to finish doing the carnival poles but there simply wasn't time ;_; But well-done despite the absent poles!
The guests starting chatting and catching up while waiting for the games to start.
Everyone came on time, more or less! lol!
And the first game of the party was...
Bingo, especially the lolita kind, is srs biz.
And there was huddling to discuss strategies~
After bingo we had an interlude session where I emulated being a lolita paparazzi photog (and phailing miserably):
Spot the mook!
Bunny is looking at me accusingly.
But I was paid off when I found lolitas doing strange things with a dryer in the ladies-room.
raydance: "Yes or No."
nozomi83: "I so don't wanna get involved."
aserett: *busy logging down everything they did and said*
But all is well! It's only to start the next game for the guests!
Pin the Bow on the Lolita!
frozenflare who's raring to start. She also got Best Coordi of the day along with Dan.
The teams were asked to choose a name each. I can't remember all of them but 'Bimbo' stuck in my mind the most...
Listening to the rules
"Air! She needs air! Clear the space!" Okay, no-one fainted but this shot reminded me of a scene from 'Grey's Anatomy' or if the doctors on that show actually tried to heal patients instead of agonizing who to sleep with next.
Let the game begin!
Oh Dan, Dan! We love you!
And there was more huddling.
And after the games, the requisite group photo.
My little pony~
