Event Report: GAL-O-WEEN party at Royal/T!

27 Oct

Yesterday, October 27, 2011, Chubby Bunny was invited to participate as a sponsor and vendor at the Halloween-themed Gal-O-Ween fashion show and party at Royal/T!

The event was put on by Tune In Tokyo, who hold monthly events at Royal/T featuring their DJs and lots of Japan-inspired content. This time, the  KIMIMELA GALS circle teamed up to create a fun fashion show and party night! Also, Japanese pop artist MOOMA was present for a special performance! Below are some pics and thoughts from the night!

Chubby Bunny recently ramped up our booth setup for this event, and we were excited to take our new display fixtures on a test run!

Our new Clearly Cute bows, featuring a dazzling mix of rhinestones, pom poms, and pink and blue soldiers inside of this vinyl bow headband! Photo by Argot & Ochre.

I made this witch hat in 10 minutes and threw on some other clothes I had laying around to be a Pink Witch! Outfit totally inspired by Sugar Sugar Rune!

My awesome friend Callie popped by to help me run the booth for the night! Check out her badass buzz lightyear costume!

Chubby Bunny sponsored one of the raffle prizes for the party! This lucky sailor won a neon orange Chubby Bunny tank top.. that we are hoping he ended up giving to his girlfriend afterwards ❤

Japanese recording artist Mooma showed up for a special performance and autograph session.

Models from the fashion show line up for a photo op after the show! The clothing they are wearing is from ShibuyaLA.

It was a super fun show with lots of friends & fans stopping by the booth!  And, it really got me in the mood for HALLOWEEN, which is totally one of my favorite holidays that I almost never get to celebrate because I get so busy in the fall! But not this year! I am doing my best to make time for Halloween! ❤

You can see more photos from the night on our Flickr!

Also, you can see more pics and event report on our buddy Argot & Ochre’s website!

Bunny Booths: Tune in Tokyo’s “Back to School” night at Royal/T

30 Aug

On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, I was excited to bring Chubby Bunny products to the Tune in Tokyo “Back to School” event at Royal/T cafe, in Culver City.

It was a great chance to motivate me to finish up some new products I had been thinking about for a while, and to debut my new shirts!

The Chubby Bunny booth! My awesome friend and on-call assistant Jenny was there to help, too! Thank you Jenny!

A quick look at some of the Dinosaur shirts! These are just samples that were for sale. The real deal will be available online in just a few weeks!

Mundane Life: Outfits, friends, doing things!

9 Jun

I haven’t done a “personal” blog post in a really long time! I know I’ve recently gotten a lot of new subscribers and followers, so sorry if the blog has been feeling too “promote-y” lately!

I’ve been blogging since I was about 12 years old (back in 1992! AOL STYLE!) so I’ve been into the hobby of sharing my day with the internet before it was ever considered a marketing tool.

So here are some little life updates since the last time I had a chance to talk about my personal life!

 

  • I’ve been updating my Tumblr quite a bit with my outfits or hairstyles of the day.

Shorts, leggings, skull shirt and blazer for a night out in Venice. Casualll!

  • Gettin tea and working on projects with friends..

    Julie Doll and myself out for a quick bite!

  • Got some extension wefts, which I made into clip-in extensions! I bleached them out, dyed, and diluted them to match my current hair color.. it was a TON of work but I am LOVING having the option to have long mermaid hair that’s style-able ❤

    Trying on my "Kitten Lace" cat ears I made to sell at the JapanLA "Kittens & Ice Cream" event!

  • I did a few shots modeling the Kryolan’s high gloss pastel colors for my buddy Shrinkle to use for her listings on eBay.

    Kryolan High Gloss Lip Gloss in Starfruit, Blue Lagoon, and Candy

  • I made a small display to have my Chubby Bunny bows displayed at JapanLA behind the counter

    Made from a frame I got at Goodwill, then painted, tufted, and added ribbons to

  • I had my work displayed in an art gallery for the first time..

    Me and my little art piece, on VIP preview night for "Kittens and Ice Cream" at JapanLA last Friday..

  • I caught up with Twinkie-chan and Hairy (his real name is not Hairy, hehehe.) for a delicious brunch last Saturday before the epic preparations for the Kittens & Ice Cream opening. We loooove Beach 26 Cafe! They have PAGES AND PAGES of French Toast!

    Twinkie & Hairy ❤

  • I got all glammed up for Bubble Punch to execute the Kittens & Ice Cream opening that night..!

    Myself and YumeNinja, the other half of Bubble Punch!

    And then consequently changed right out of that dress for the after-hours hanging out times with friends.

    Super casual!

  • And right now, I’m catching up on work, blogging, photo uploading, and a couple of presentations! I’ll be done with my stint at FIDM in just 1 week! Scary! I already have a B.A. from Penn State in Japanese, English, and Advertising, but went back to school to FIDM in their Professional Designation program (1 year study course) to learn about Visual Merchandising, building retail interiors, window dressing, styling, digital rendering and all sorts of amazingly useful stuff!

Hope you enjoyed the mini-updated! As always, feel free to comment below with questions, or hit me up on:

Bunnies & Bows Event Report

9 May

Saturday was such a wonderful success! We’re so happy that so many of our friends and fans were able to attend the big bash!

Just lil' ol me posing outside of JapanLA! I purchased the skirt and altered an existing corset then dyed them both to match!

The event opened up to a warm dusk, with early patrons getting their dinner from the Jogasaki Burrito truck and getting first dibs at the new Chubby Bunny products! We had live models sporting Chubby Bunny rhinestoned tees and lots of accessories scattered throughout their hair. Thanks to Yume Ninja for doing makeup!
