Previous thread: >>9473878

Please keep this on topic about the event and the goings-on about it.
No real names and blurr out all facebook names to avoid getting this banned.
We need civility to a certain degree.

Some girls have started to file Paypal claims, if you are willing, it's highly suggested you do so as well

Just to recap what happened:
>Mini convention in Florida
>$80-$150 ticket prize
>claimed to be a "catered" event
>"catered food" includes plate of starbursts, devil dogs, and packaged children's snacks.
>"Outside catering company" turns out to be B-chan with a fake company.
>dress code but allowed her friends in dressed like itas/goths
>same friends were "VIP" and had triple the amount of raffle tickets everyone else had
>as a result her friends won half the raffle prizes.
>ran out of their shitty food and sugar for the tea
>Ran out of hot water as well. (which we all had to walk across the room to get ourselves)
>no milk, honey, cream, or ANYTHING for the tea
>Mimosas promised for VIP, but only part of the VIP got mimosas.

Omg this is beautiful, she's such a dumbass. B-chan, seriously, every post you make here is making it a little less likely that anyone will ever come to one of your events again, and a little more likely that attendees will be angry enough to go through with filing paypal claims. You need to stop being such an entitled bitch and start doing damage control

>> No.9487409

What pains me the most is that I /know/ I can do better than this. I'm not a lolita and I'm not close with anyone in the community, so the opportunity may never arise. But I know I can do better with the small experience I have from helping set up family gatherings several times a year. If I were to be put in charge of a gathering with no prior experience (which B-chan actually does have), what would I do? ASK PEOPLE. Ask people for advice and tips on what to do to help things run smoothly and implement as much as you reasonably are able to. This event had 50+ people and you can expect the community to tear into you if you do abysmally bad, so why the hell would you want to be lazy about it and not properly prep for it?

For catering, I'd save on costs by making as much the food I can by myself and maybe ask a few friends and family members to help me out. I'd bake cakes, croissants, scones, etc the day prior. Wake up early and make tea sandwiches the morning of. Mimosas is made up of 1:1 orange juice and dry sparkling wine stirred together; it's so fucking easy to make that it's laughable. Recipes are on Google -- literally one click away.

Rent good tableware (plates, cups, teapots, spoons, forks) from an actual catering company and NOT B-chan's fake catering company that I can only imagine she set up so that she could pocket the "catering costs" of going to the nearest Kmart to pick up plastic spoons, Skittles, powdered donuts, and Starburst. Shop around and get quotes from surrounding catering companies so that you save on money. Stock up on tea things like honey, sugar, etc. so that there's more than enough to last the tea party. People are paying anywhere between $80-$150 each to be there so it better be worthwhile. Keep the room blocked off from outsiders so that they don't wander in and take pictures of your attendees, causing them discomfort.


>> No.9487411

Have a reasonable schedule. Have a reasonable plan B for the schedule. Someone said that the plan had the guests do a Q&A for 3 hours (or was it 6 hours?). That's obviously too much. 1-2 hours of Q&A each is a lot for guest and would wear on them. Not that it mattered much since B-chan cancelled the Q&A and said that it was fine since the guests were mingling with the crowd on the floor.

Show up early and not an hour late like B-chan did. The venue would ideally have two rooms so that one could doing setup while the other has the attendees sitting comfortably. Do the setup as early and as quick as possible so that people are left wandering outside the venue for an hour while prep happens. For this reason, I'd employ 15-20 volunteers. Get friends or family members to join in and loan them coords if they aren't in the fashion. Don't shit-talk the people around you constantly like B-chan so that you actually have a fair amount of people who'd want to help out. Have a reasonable budget plan and don't invite international guests if the costs don't fit the budget.

B-chan. I know you're reading this. Take notes, and maybe you can salvage your dirt reputation next year. I want the lolita community to succeed and to have fantastic tea parties. Criticism is necessary for progress.

When you're organizing events you have to be either good enough with people to run an efficient team, or at least not actively alienate everyone you're trying to work with, or active and on top of things enough to get shit done by yourself. I've been confused by all these 'event planning is hard' comments from B-chan because I've planned similar size events before for my college sports team, never with significant problems, but I think that's where it's coming from. It sounds like B-chan wasn't willing to ask for help, pushed away the few helpers she did have by talking shit about them and making impossible demands, and then also wanted to sit around and not do much, and was surprised when it ended up being a disaster.

Of course, the other important thing an event organizer should have is a drive to see their event succeed. I can't imagine feeling good about putting on something so poor quality, and even saying you're going to do more events while ignoring criticism. Mean, lazy, and apathetic is not a winning combination. Sage for blog post, sorry

Nah,Catering for an event isn't hard. I've done more assisting my aunt's catering business.
Simple starting estimates based off of ticket sales, controlling your "possibly lazy" staff, and having decent runners for stock. It's all timing and control with q/q (quality/quantity based on budget)

From the website's FAQ:
Q: "My friend/significant other/myself want to attend your conference but we don't own anything from Lolita fashion, can we still attend?"
A: "Yes, anyone who purchases a ticket can attend. Only attendees who purchased a VIP are required to wear Lolita specific attire.
Other than Lolita attire, any Japanese Street Fashion/Alternative clothes may be worn. Dress code for this event is: No jeans or casual pants, no T-shirts, no sneakers, no flipflops or casual shoes, no clothes that would be torn, dirty or damaged."

>> No.9487769

That's a really confusing dresscode considering that there are plenty of sneakers and T-shirts fall under the Jfash umbrella and there was a jfashion brand in the fashion show selling printed T-shirts. They should have made it clearer and specified whether T-shirts/sneakers are okay in fairy kei or not okay at all.

>> No.9487774

There's some good suggestions in here but you definitely can not bring handmade food into a rented space! I've never worked with a venue that allowed this due to food and beverage regulations. It kind of sounds like she tried to save money by making things, realized it had to come from a legit company so tried to set one up, then ended up wasting a bunch more money because venues almost always charge a huge fee if you're not using them or their approved list to cater.

Some places I've found let you bring your own food, but they're usually places like churches, museums, universities, etc. Places that don't already have an in house catering service.

Look I'm just saying if B-chan was restricted by rules saying "no homemade food, catered food only" like some are suggesting then she still had no excuse.

Food list:
>cheap candy
>$1 vending machine snacks
>cheap baked goods
>made her own drinks but couldn't supply enough
>couldn't supply enough tea stuff

How fucking hard is it to go buy some party sized assorted cheesecakes and some refridged macarons or at least some fucking ferrero rocher instead of starbursts and skittles and FORTUNE COOKIES?!?

This bitch raided the Halloween candy aisle, a vending machine, and a fucking Chinese restaurant to feed people who paid $80-150 expecting a catered meal.

She made up her own catering company, she could have made food and called it catered to get around any 'no handmade' food rules but instead she went cheap to pocket the cash.

There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for the 'catering' to be that shitty. You can whiteknight the rest of the event all you want as "Waah she's unable to stand/work too hard, you should have helped!" but you can't whiteknight the catering because seriously, are you going to suggest people should have gone elsewhere for a meal or offered to chip in and bring food?

This anon is correct. I've been working conventions for years.

Did your family charge the attendees to be there? The issue comes into play when people pay to attend.

Because prepackaged food does not break any Heath violations. Venues can have restrictions on top of that which leads to using specific catering companies but if you are selling seats at an event with food the food has to meet certain requirements. Most states have rules against home kitchens.

>prepackaged food does not break any Heath violations
Even so she claimed had hired a catering company and instead of actually hiring one that could comply with the rules of the venue, she made one up and served the cheapest prepackaged food she could find.

Agreed about the censoring. We usually don't use foul language and such at tea meets (or any meet for that matter), but there are certain topics that are awkward to talk about in front of a minor.

>> No.9493320

I think she would've had more volunteers if she had offered them a discount or free entry. The way I see it is volunteers are there to work, not enjoy the event and eat.

I actually considered it, but when I asked B-chan what was in it for me and she said I still had to pay full ticket price, I decided not to do it.

And that was only 1 special guest) plus renting the venue. That probably ate up all of the earnings (At the least I know that Haenuli and Lor spent about 3 nights in their hotel, so that's about $150/night multiplied by 2-4). I heard B-chan had to pay for a lot of things out of her own pocket. Probably everything else, that's why everything seemed so cheaply done and mediocre.

She mentioned that she wanted to bring Minori from Japan too, but at the time she still needed to sell 5 more VIP tickets and the "queen and king" tickets in order to do so. If she had actually gotten away with that, I'm sure the event would've been even more poorly done.

About $8,800.00 is what I calculated that she must've netted. That is assuming the regular tickets were $80, but I'm pretty sure I payed $84 or so. Besides, after a certain day, she raised the price to about $100 for the "commoner" tickets and raised the price of the VIP ticket too, so taking into account how many people bought their tickets kind of last minute, she must've netted a lot more than that.

From the point of view of a former convention organizer, this would be somewhere in the bottom 10-20% of first year conventions. Not quite dash con level, or IFCon (look it up) but quite poor. From what I've read, I would attribute the poor experience more to incompetence than malice, but it certainly seems like some people were left quite disappointed, which unfortunately, can make people second guess themselves next time they want to go to a new event.

I don't really see how this applies if the adult is coming for the sole purpose of watching over their kid. That tells me that they aren't expecting other lolitas to "babysit" or do it for them.

Their presence shouldn't be bothersome unless they do something really wrong or weird. We're all adults, so it shouldn't be that hard to just deal with it.

That brings me back to the question of why the fuck there were a bunch of belly dancers at a Jfashion event. Did the attendees know about this when they bought their tickets? I'm pretty sure that if lolitas had the chance to choose between belly dancers and no belly dancers, most would go for no belly dancers. Especially if that means cheaper tickets or decent food.

>> No.9494239

The belly dancing troupe was the very first "special guest" announced back in September of last year I think. I thought it was weird, but I didn't say anything to B-chan about it because I thought I was the only one who thought it wasn't appropriate. So yes, the attendees knew about the belly dancers way before the bought their tickets. They were supposed to perform during the mocktail hour to keep people "entertained" until the fashion show started, but since everything started so late, they performed in between brands during the fashion show.

>> No.9494246

The belly dancers looked so unprepared. I felt like I was watching some high school talent show. The music wasn't even suited to the style of dance that they were doing. They were confirmed since October/November of last year. That's way more than enough time for them to come up with a good routine and get enough practice time in to put on a good show. There's no excuse for them to be unprepared. At least they covered up the rolls on the fat one with that black dress. I was trying to contain my laughter whenever she moved her fat belly around.

Lor wasn't free. Neither were Haenuli, Chokelate, or Fluffy Tori. I don't know about Moshi Moshi Watermelon since they're somewhat local (South Florida). She had to pay for all of these people's international flights and their hotel stays. Her problem is that she got way too ambitious. Bringing all those international guests to a first year convention/event. They must've cost her thousands of dollars on top of the venue rental leaving her with very little budget for food and everything else. Bad planning and budgeting from her part.

The only value she brings is by being a magnet for the event, people know who Lor is and I'm pretty sure itas and newbies like her since she's kind of 'lolita is for everyone uwu' type. She's just there to bring more people in for the event by being a name other lolitas recognize. Not sure how smart B-chan is, but maybe by having Lor there alongside Choke she was hoping to quell any residual anger from Choke scamming the shit out of people. 'Oh well only ONE guest has a rough past, but look at how great everyone else is!!'
Honestly I think B-chan should have ditched inviting Lor and Choke when she had such a big name like Hanueli there. Choke is a known scammer and Lor doesn't DO anything, so I think B-chan seriously wasted her money on having those two guests. I know I'll get flack for this, but inviting someone like Kate would have been better, she had the facade of creating LACE so she has a better following of the special snowflake group than Lor, and would have interacted with people way more since she loves the attention.

>> No.9495458


>inviting someone like Kate would have been better, she had the facade of creating LACE

Kate is just as bad as Lor, tho. She is also a flake. She tried to get attention by creating LACE, but never really did an effort to make it work and just abandoned it. She might've interacted with the crowd better, but a lot of lolitas dislike her for things she has done and said in the past and since she's no longer in the public eye because of her "I don't want to be a part of the western lolita community. I'll keep wearing lolita for myself" crap, newbies might not have a clue about who she is.

I agree the only special guest that was worth it as this event was Haenuli and having her alone would've been more than enough. She was very friendly and tried to mingle as much as possible despite her limited English (she can hold a conversation quite well). Like mentioned before, Lor had her big nose stuck in her camera or phone all day and wasn't even trying to mingle. I know she said she was sick, but that's no excuse for having that attitude of entitlement that she had that day. I didn't even see Chokelate until the vendors set up. I thought they were going to put her in the fashion show or something.

She was a guest at the DFT event in 2015, which happened right after she went to Japan and her cat drama, that's why she flaked.

Either she owed them a favor and got them a gig at her event or they have a friendship or something.

The whole coordinate contest was a joke. Not in the sense of the participants looking terrible (there were a couple who did), but in the way it was organized and the way it was supposedly judged. I call BS on the whole "we were busy and we lost the ballots where the judges had written down their decisions". Couldn't B just go up to them and say "hey sorry we lost the papers, but who did you choose again?" That would've been so easy! If they were as unprepared as Lor said they were, then they probably didn't even know they were supposed to be judging the coordinates as it was happening. Also, with all the amount of raffle prizes she gave out, it's possible that she got confused and raffled off the ones that were supposed to be used for the coordinate winners. Towards the end of the raffle she said "before we announce the coordinate winners, lets go take a group photo outside", but I don't know what ended up happening and instead of that, everyone started leaving and the group photo and the coordinate winners never happened.
