Those who are interested in kawaii/Harajuku subcultures, especially lolita, do know, that every year, Tea Party Club is making big convention + tea party in city of London. It's always fantastic, full of attractions and is great occasion to meet old and new friends. Two years ago it was Revelry, later Regalia and this time the 'fancy name' was Wicked & Whimsy. It was 9th TPC aniversary, celebrated with such great guests as Nunu/Haenulli and designers of Enchantic Enchantily & Baroque brand, from Korea. There were also many indie/european brands present; Lady Sloth, Shinku Rose and many others. Plenty of great vendors, made me cry a little bit, cuz I haven't got almost any monies in my wallet, hahaha.
I attended only first day of the W&W, which means I skipped Tea Party on Sunday. I just couldn't go, since I had to return home for Monday morning and Edinburgh is bit far from London, so it takes a while to get there. Still, I enjoyed Saturday so much! Me and my friend; Menoa, had early entry ticket, so we were able to enter venue at 10:30. I was charmed with Institute of Directors. Amazing place. Kaha & Keczup, which represented Lady Sloth, had to arrive there two hours earlier, so were already based in one of few vendors rooms.
At 11:30 W&W was open to everybody with general admission tickets. Soon after there was welcome speech and the real fun began. Quiz + Q&A. At 13:00 Vendor Fashion Show started. Between 13:30 and 14:30 there was break for lunch. Next- Brand Guests Fashion Show. I think I fell in love even more with Enchantic Enchantily designs. At 15:30 was Storytime by Haenuli, which I have unfortunatelly missed cuz I was taking pictures and just socializing, hahaha. 16:30 Fashion Fix, where Mica and Kyra were trying to guess how much costs your outfit. This one was very funny! After there was only Raffle and group picture and 18:00 was the end.
I was very tired, kinda hungry but sad that W&W is already finished for me. I mean, I was loaded with all the positive emotions/energy but sad I will have to wait another year for such phenomenal event. And I already know I will do EVERYTHING to be a part of 10th TCP aniversary cuz the guest will be no one else than ANGELIC PRETTY! <3 MWAHAHAH!
