Are you going to be at this convention? Why not put on your '20s or '30s outfits and join us! If you're looking for inspiration, anything from Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey or The Great Gatsby will do fine.
We'll have food on sticks, and "tea" & "lemonade" drinks in teacups. Enjoy a gin and tonic, or a whisky and soda in a teacup. (We'll even serve you actual tea, or lemonade lemonade if you're not imbibing.)
The password is GOATS.
The year is 1926. The name of the place: Pendergast Cafe.
I'd like to host a party during the convention. If I can pull this off, I'm going to need some help on the ground. At a minimum, some help rounding up the groceries would be needed. Better would be if you'll help me get things prepped to make the on-site cooking so much easier...
Does this sound like fun? I'm thinking we serve tacos, encourage people to wear aloha shirts, and take lots of pictures.

Another week. Last Sunday, ala_mokita came over and showed me the laconiv jacket. (left) It runs a little snug: I'll
3XL-T instead of a 2XL-T. This week we wrote out a check for the appropriate amount and mailed it off. We'll get one with Baden embroidered on it, so
library_lynn and I can wear it.
That night, he and I met up with Masoud and Joey.
( Masoud was co-head of the Video Game Room for Anime Los Angeles 2-5... )
This past weekend was busier than usual. colleency had organized a Dim Sum trip at Empress Pavilion, and a trip to see the FIDM movie costume exhibit. There's one weekend left to see it and the exhibit (and parking) are free. Costumes from last year's crop of superhero movies, Speed Racer, Appaloosa, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Benjamin Button, and more -- 22 movies in all -- are on display. They don't allow photography inside, so I just snapped a few pictures of the gang that showed up. (right)
As usually is the case, there were a lot of Colleen's "Culture Day" circle of friends and a few people that learned about it through Costumers Guild West.
After we left the exhibit, Shawn and Colleen headed into the Garment
District to shop at Mike's Fabrics.
( I walked up to L.A. Live... )
