The whole event was truly marvelous, I had been planning and waiting a whole year for this to come by and it was just amazing from start to finish.
With my V.I.P. ticket I was given first dibs in many things like the marketplace and consignment rooms and a tote bag filled with many goodies with a few really lovely gifts from Enchantilly and Triple Fortune. I also got a complimentary ticket to the high tea which was really lovely and fun, but in all honesty Rufflecon had so much more to give.

|One of my favorite things was the fashion show!|
Even though we had been models for only one or two brands people were allowed to mingle within the dressing room. I felt everyone was super friendly and supportive of each other, I took a lot of candid shots in between rehearsals and dressing.
I couldn't resist getting a bunch of selfies with these two.
The director and designer of Triple Fortune, Babi-san and Kaie-san, were seriously amazing and it was a great opportunity to get to work with them. I was awed by them and a little intimidated because they were simply so cool, but they were friendly and kind and funny and I feel privileged to have had the chance to model for them.
|I have a zillion of these on my phone and camera.|
The variety show was cute and the participants seemed to have quite a deal of fun. The entries were all really impressive and fun and creative and I have the urge to enter the handmade contest next year and the talent portion as well.
The Masquerade kicked off with Triple Fortune's band called Brilliant Kingdom...I can not tell you how big of a fangirl I had become...I know I'm not the only one either. Fangirl-tendencies aside, they brought an amazing performance to the stage that I thoroughly enjoyed rocking out to. The other groups that played were all lively and fun as well, at one point I joined a group of ladies rocking out and we morphed into a little bit of Victorian styled dancing and then later on after that we all bounced around to Platform One's awesome performance and sang along with Voltaire.
I did manage to make a few purchases, including my wedding dress which I bought from Enchantilly. Fumiko-san was very happy to hear I was going to wear it. She was just so super lovely and cute and genuinely sweet person, I'm very glad to have gotten a chance to meet her.
All I know is this evolved very quickly and mysteriously into this.
I was certainly not prepared for this at all!
Thank you all for such a wonderful time!
