Well over 100 people were in attendance, snacking on hors d’oeuvres and watching the fun lineup of 3 bands play in the back room. What really strikes me about Royal/T is it’s copious amounts of space in an area where I’ve become accustomed to tiny venues. Culver City has never truly been a mecca of large galleries, so Royal/T is definitely a venue to keep your eye on for future innovative events. Zippercut was wise in its choice of the yet-unexploited Royal/T venue to host their event at.
Zippercut did a great job with the guest list as well, with attendees such as Hannabeth (of indie scene fame), Onch (from the recently wrapped “Paris’ New BFF”), myself and Jenna Winterberg (editors of Gothic & Lolita Bible), staff from LA Weekly as well as Soapbox films, to name a few!
It was really refreshing seeing people of all ages dressing up in elegant styles. Gorgeous evening wear, Lolita fashion, rococo wardrobe, and other period garments were well-represented at this event. I had a blast being as costumey as possible in my self-styled Snow Queen getup.
Here are just a few pics from the event. (All photos (c) of William Bradley)
