When Scot Reyes, owner of the pop culture doll shop The Valley of the Dolls (see LAist’s visit to this store), announced his plans for a Mad Tea Party at Royal/T, LA Lolitas and doll collectors took notice. Then “lolitamom” posted the event information in this Live Journal entry on the la loligoth page prompting several lolitas to discuss their costume plans for the big party. Variations on the Queen of Hearts costume is sure the be popular and a some goth Cheshire cats too.
LA Lolitas, doll collectors, and other Alice in Wonderland fans have until Saturday, March 21 (from 3-9pm) to get dolled up and ready for the Mad Tea Party at Royal/T. With music by International Pop Conspiracy, high tea, a raffle, and a Valley of the Dolls pop up shop, it is sure to be a magical day. LAist will be there to check it out.
If any of y’all go, you simply must share your pictures with me! I imagine there will be plenty of overlap between this and the Bat Day in the Fun Park event. I must say, those West Coast types have way better alt/Disney events than I’ve ever seen back here in the Northeast. Just look at the show my friend Geoff blogged about recently. Damn. At least I can console myself next week with Japan Nite US Tour, even if it’s totally Disney-free.
