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!

Meet “Bunnies & Bows” artist: Onch: Rainbow Prince of LA

29 Apr

All of the artists I chosen for the Bunnies & Bows event have influenced me on a creative, professional, or personal level in some way. I’ll be introducing some of the artists who have been sending me in their progress shots for the Bunnies & Bows gallery (debut & opening party May 7!) here!

Onch

Onch's "Meatlace" product, inspired by Lady Gaga's meat outfit! (Don't worry, it's just plastic!)

You may already know Onch from his stint on the reality show Paris’ My New BFF season 1 and 2, or from his super over-the-top food-themed jewelry line “Onch Movement,” for which my event production company helped throw a massively SWEET shindig for a few months ago…!

But, when I met Onch, he was just a cute-fashion lover the same as myself as he was sitting in JapanLA

Onch's amazing icecream cone necklace! I waaant ❤

chatting with the owner, Jamie, as I came in to do a photo session. Onch has a great passion for fashion, and more importantly, an amazingly energetic outlook on life, as well as business. I really respect Onch’s ability to “sell” cute, as well as BE cute and be himself, without worrying too much if people think he’s being strange or not. He knows what it’s like to be different, but instead of trying to blend in to be like everyone else, embraces his uniqueness and doesn’t worry about the “haters.” Lord knows I totally see eye to eye with him on this. I know strangers stare (or scream and take photos of me like I’m a rabid beast about to kill their babies), and that it’s a tough thing when growing up to not just try to be “normal” just so other people will stop bothering you.

Onch's works for the #PrayForJapan Exhibition in March.

And yet, here we all are, still being “weird,” creative, and loving it, embracing others who are like us and enjoy being unique!

So to Onch, I salute him for making a career of it, and also to being a totally sweet friend! I’m glad to have met him and I hope everyone who attends the party can, too!

His artwork matches his personality, and is super cute, glittery, and looks like candy! Check out some shots of his finished work!
