My Glamorous Pony: Opening night of “My Little Pony Project: Los Angeles”

15 May

On Saturday, May 5th, the long awaited opening for the “My Little Pony Night Out” finally arrived! Sweet Streets curated the show for Hasbro and Mighty Fine which drew in hundreds of fans from all over! The event was tailored to My Little Pony crowds of old and new! Giant blank Ponies were sent out to artists all over the world to customize and sell for this show. Tons of my artist friends had pieces in the show, so I was super amped to see what they had come up with!

I went to the gallery on the Thursday before the opening to help with setup and go to clean pony butts and comb pony hair all afternoon. The ponies had been shipped in from all over the world, so they needed proper styling help and readjusting once they were situated on their pony pedestals. (Every word I am typing is getting more and more surreal to me as I go along, haha.) It was totally amazing.

Combing manes. No big deal.

Some photos of the AMAZING ponies that artists had customized. These pictures don’t even do them justice.

That afternoon we also stuffed some giftbags for the press night they were holding on Friday. These bags are normally available via Mightyfine.com’s site when you purchase a t-shirt. They’re enormous and so cute! Love that engineer-looking Rainbow Dash!

I’ve been waiting for a chance to do a fancy Princess Celestia cosplay ever since I started watching the Friendship is Magic version of My Little Pony, and this event was totally the perfect opportunity for it! So, I had been working my little hands off on my Gatsby dress, as well as the Hello Kitty Sephora dress, so making time for this dress was pretty stressful towards the end there..! It was my first time working with such gauzy chiffon material (and actually hemming it.. usually I’m lazy and just double it up or burn it haha), so it was a bit tricky at first but I got it!

Craft Box: May Costume Madness: Hello Kitty, My Little Pony, Great Gatsby!

1 May

I’ve been working super hard these past couple of weeks on 3 projects at once!

After this week I’ll be able to do a full reveal on everything, but for now… some sneak peeks ❤

I’m doing another Hello Kitty mascot costume for an upcoming launch somewhere special this month….. It’s the first time I’ve made jewelry for Ms. Kitty, too!

Purr-ly and pretty for Ms. Kitty, hehe.

I am also very excited about the My Little Pony Project, which I will be helping out with a little bit, and am working on an epic Princess Celestia outfit to wear to the opening event! I hope to see all of you guys there ❤

Princess Celestia character that I'm taking inspiration from for my outfit!

Pretty and soft materials I'm prepping for my outfit!

 

And of course, at the end of this week, my BIRTHDAY will be arriving! I will be turning the big 30, so I’m doing a “Great Gatsby”-themed birthday party, to celebrate the end of my “roaring 20s”, so to speak! I even made a stupid little image for it, haha.

I was able to finish up this EPIC dress to wear for my birthday last week! Just have to work on the accessories now!

Can’t wait to share final photos of all of my projects with everyone! I just had to post a few progress photos because I am SUPER excited for this week and these projects!!!

By Hook or by Crook: “Hookers” Opening Night at Corey Helford Gallery

2 Apr

On March 31, Natalia Fabia‘s group curated show “Hookers,” presented at the Corey Helford Gallery celebrated their opening night!

Natalia is an awesome lady, and amazing oil painter that I met at a party many moons ago, and she asked myself and Yume to pose for one of her paintings <3. The theme for this night’s exhibition was “Hookers,” a word that Natalia always uses to describe women who are strong, independent, and stylish, using it in a positive sense to convey modern feminine beauty.

The show featured 22 artists’ rendition of “Hookers,” and the opening night was jammed packed with awesome art and colorful people!

Event Recap: Chubby Bunny at the Locketship Anniversary “Galactic Glitter” Party!

13 Nov

On Saturday, November 12, we were excited to bring our Chubby Bunny booth to help Locketship celebrate the anniversary of their brand! We have a few space-themed items of our own, and were happy to bring them along to the themed event! We also provided neat Chubby Bunny prizes for the costume contest giftbags!

Everyone dressed up in their most out-of-this-world garb to get into the Galactic theme!  This was my outfit for the night! My awesome friend Jenny made the skirt and I did the star cut outs and bolero. Super fast super simple and super space invader-like!  Threw it on over another dress I already own for good sparkly measure, haha.

Here, I'm pictured wearing the Chubby Bunny Purple Star Bow, and the Bunnies In Space Collaboration Bow in my hair!

Locketship x Chubby Bunny Collaboration!

7 Nov

Although I last posted about my collaboration with SPANK!, 1 week before that happens, I’ll be participating in another fun event!

To celebrate the anniversary of my friend Maria’s brand, Locketship, we teamed up to make a super cute bow for her anniversary party, being held on November 12th from 7 – 11pm at Meltdown Comics!

Locketship provided me with a super cute bunny pendant which I fashioned as the centerpiece for a super cute bow! Take a look below!

The bows feature a rabbit in space, situated on a double bow. The top layer of the bow has glitter and stars in it, while the bottom layer has a marbled black and blue pattern on it that’s totally space-a-riffic! They’re are only 8 being produced for sale, and they are $24 each!


This super special item will debut and be for sale at the Locketship Anniversary party! They are super limited, so we hope to see you there early!
