Picture Post: Royal/T Alice High Tea  
On Sunday I was blessed enough to be invited to moonshine246's 17th birthday party at Royal/T, Los Angeles' only maid cafe. Royal/T is having a special Alice in Wonderland High Tea this month only. (There's also more info here.) More than half the party was in costume, and I, of course, took photos.

postrophe and Krystal were nice enough to offer me a ride with them to the party. Here they are dressed up uber-nice for the party at the entrance to the cafe.

The birthday girl, moonshine246, known hereafter as Amber, dressed up and brought her friend Wesley, who also looked fantastic.

ladypixel and kingu did not dress up, bless their hearts, because I didn't have a single darn appropriate thing to wear. Thanks, Lori and Gary!!

Here are our costumed attendees in front of a Royal/T Alice promo.

I thought Richard looked particularly spiffy in this shot. He should use this as an icon/avatar, don't you think?

For the Alice High Tea, they bring out a tray of various delectables, as seen here.

...but, of course, you want a close up of the cupcake.

We did actually get one shot with me in it. Left to right you have Lori, Gary, Krystal, Richard, me, Wesley and Amber.

I love this shot of Amber, I think it turned out really well.

The birthday girl also got a special birthday (cup)cake.

Behind where we were eating, there was a very cool glass room. We went and played there a while and took pictures, but you are warned that glass rooms are very reflective and not conducive to photography. The furniture was too fun not to take photos, though.

You see in that last picture the big open area behind? That's the art gallery. I think everyone's favorite piece, which has been there as long as I've known about the place, is the Porta Party.

What's that?

Yes, from the outside it looks like a porta-potty crossed with an ipod, inside is, well, a tiny party. One more reason if you're in L.A. you might want to check the place out ^_^

Hope you liked the picture post!

It was pretty cool, yes. The conversation leaned a bit toward the mad, as well.

I love 9, too ^_^

If you can mozy your butt to L.A. I will take you to the maid cafe.

"..looked particularly spiffy.."
(Sometimes, Misty, you just say the nicest things..)
We must somehow obtain for you outfits of appropriate coolth, so you can't beg off and wear jeans will feel more a part of the action.. *g*
We were happy to get the chance to drag you along on a fun outing!

I have no problem with obtaining cool outfits. I have plans to actually spend double-digits on a coat that Doesn't Suck. Right now I have a jean jacket and a winter coat and nothing in-between anyways, so it's not like I don't need one. Can't hurt to get a nice one.
