Tonight was the Launch Extravaganza party for OnchMovement‘s Perfectasy, a magical pop-up shop takeover of the meido kafe-inspired Royal/T in Culver City, CA. I had the privilege of checking it out before the crowds pour in over the course of the next month, and I must say, if you love all things Kawaii, you must come here!
When I first walked in, I couldn’t help but have a huge smile come across my face when I noticed a large tea pot on my right with a group of ama-loli enjoying pastries. Had I just been transported to my super-happiness-zone in the heart of Japan? I think so!
OnchMovement’s signature pieces shine on display in the center area of Royal/T, alongside flying gum ball machines and original nom-inspired sculptures (ex: a giant hamburger that I almost took a bite out of during the party…shh…don’t tell…). The colorful and imaginative products pop out in the space and yet seem to be a perfect fit for the Akihabara-style cafe. Dare I say it was a match made in heaven?
To make the evening completely magical, two mystical creatures were present at the festivities. First, there was a Mermaid (who was gorgeous by the way – my crappy iPhone photos definitely didn’t do her justice). And secondly, there was a Unicorn.
That’s right. A real Unicorn.
Thought they were extinct? Oh no. Not in Onch’s World.
The Perfectasy Launch Extravaganza was the first of five events that will be hosted at Royal/T during OnchMovement’s pop up shop stay. If you find yourself in the Los Angeles area, make sure to stop by during the day for some tea, a quick shopping spree/bite, or for one of these awesome events:
August 7th @ 12pm: StART + Onch: Celebrity Shrines – Create a pocket-sized shrine to your own celebrity muse!
August 18th, 6-10pm: Rainbows and Cowboys – Fashion preview by PetroZilla and T.Rains.
August 21st, 10am-1pm: Bacon Bonanza Brunch! – Special Bacon-themed menu to match OnchMovement’s Meat-cessories line.
August 31st, 6-10pm: Closing Night Cabaret! – Over-the-top Cabaret night! Costumes encouraged!
Tonight’s preview/launch event was an absolute blast filled with colorful friends, tons of candy, and an original drink at the bar that was quite possibly the most delicious thing I had tasted in ages. I even picked up an Onch Pop necklace this evening for myself. What do you think Interwebs?
A big thank you to OnchMovement for inviting Ogeeku to the event, but most of all for bringing these beautiful products to the real world.
