A Witchy EGL Tea Party by PAPERCUTE

Papercute and TISSU Studios presents a WItchy EGL Tea Party!! For all the Wichita and surrounding area EGL members new and old to come meet up for a Fall Themed Tea Party. The theme for this fall's tea party is Spooky Chic. For $10, come join us for a day of fun and fashion.

Lolita Fashion is a subculture that began in Japan that is inspired by Edwardian and Victorian clothing. There are many top brands in Japan as well as indie brands that have started in other countries. There are lolitas that hand make their clothes and accessories or purchase second hand items inspired by the fashion.

This will also be open to local people who are interested in the fashion and would like to participate. Note, this is not a themed costume party. If attendees do not have any lolita fashion items to wear, we recommend attendees dress in formal attire.

Decorations, food, and (non-alcoholic) drinks will be provided. At the event, it is encouraged that lolita fashion members bring any of their neglected pieces to swap or sell to fellow attendees. There will also be a raffle, games, and an outfit contest at the event. Our goal for these events are to bring together people who share similar interests to meet in person.

Again, there is a $10 entree fee to all attendees and only ages 13 and older may join.

We accept cash or card at the door.
