Midnight Tea - AX 2009 - Part 1
Here is the press coverage of AX 2009 Midnight Tea before they are open to the public. Midnight tea is a competitive event for enthusiasts of the Lolita/Aristocrat culture. Imagine a life size diorama & costume contest! This event gives the contestants a chance to create and design a themed tea party by decorating tea sets, tables, cushions and most importantly, show craftsmanship at creating a Lolita or Aristocratic themed tea party for exhibition only. No Food or Drink will be served.
I am a fan of Lolita fashion, so this is right down my alley. Don't forget to comment at the bottom of the page to show support. Also, if you are a contestant on that day, please facebook me at richard @ openhappy dot com, so we can linkup and maybe see each other next year.
All private or public photoshoots are free of charge, say thanks by buying us a drink!
Let's start with the Neon Genesis Evangelion table. They are the first table ready on that night!
By the way, can you tell they are sisters?
This is the first time we cover midnight tea. (Thus, never see the room, lighting and how they are setup, etc.) It turns out all the tables are kind of close to each other and lighting is quite limited (which makes sense as it is *midnight* tea). We will bring more lighting equipment next time :)
Since they are the first table ready, we are able to take more pictures of them.
We need to bring more lighting equipment next time :) Especially when the wall does not bound any light ...
They make a very cute sister couple.
(Please check back as more pictures will be updated when I get the pictures from the other photographer. There will be more pictures of the tables themself)
