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!

Chubby Bunny at “Harajuku Holiday!”

23 Feb

I love vending at Tune In Tokyo‘s monthly events whenever possible! The crowd there is super sweet, fun, and passionate about music and fashion, and I always end up leaving with new ideas and new friends 🙂 Last night’s “Harajuku Holiday” themed event was no different, with lots of fun guests in attendance, plus a rad Lolita Fashion show, organized by my buddies Mandie and Oli ❤

The night also boasted performances from May J. and Joe Inoue, the hosts of NHK World’s “J-MELO”, who both performed songs from their latest albums! I was also excited to be invited in as one of the judges for the “Fashion Forward Lolita” contest, which I judged with both May and Joe ❤ Pics of the night below!

The Chubby Bunny booth! I've been marathon-ing "The Last Airbender" for the past 2 weeks while working and just finished the series yesterday, so I was inspired to do some hair loopies for the night! I'm also wearing my Rainbow Sparkle dress that I made for my fashion show at Sweet Streets last year ❤

At the judging table! Myself, May J. and Joe Inoue (making a really hilarious face).

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!

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!
