Kumiko Uehara, Sweet Lolita Designer
Tea Party DetailsTickets: $50.00 per person.
Dress code: At least one BABY item, and matching or supporting COORD.
Yes, you must be wearing high-quality lolita. No cosplay.
Gentlemen accompanying significant others must meet a minimum of Morning Dress.
How to get tickets:
Tickets will be sold via a reservation process that begins on April 8, 2015.
On April 8, 2015 at 4pm a form will be linked to here that will allow you to reserve your ticket.
Upon submission of the form, you will be entered in a Queue for tickets. The first people to enter the queue will be sent an email with instructions on how to pay for their tickets. You will have exactly 4 hours to buy your ticket, or your space will be released to the next person.
Last year, everyone who submitted between 4pm and 4:30pm got a ticket. We can't guarantee this year will be the same.
What day is the Tea Party?
We can not confirm the final schedule. We do know that the fashion show, the fashion show fitting, and the tea party will each be on a different day of the convention.
What if I can't attend?
We can not provide any refunds for tickets. When you buy one, you should plan to attend. If you can not attend, we will make some effort to save any special novel gift item that may be given out if there are any left available, but we can not ship it to you - you can have a friend pick it up instead, but they won't be able to attend the tea party in your place. If you let us know you are not coming, we will make another ticket available to the next interested person, however.
Tell us more about who is attending for BABY?

No cosplay, necomimi ears, props, weapons, replicas, etc. No asking for autographs (there's time for this elsewhere), no outside food or drink, no soliciting. Have your mobile phones off and please don't text during the event. In general, keep in mind that this is a formal event. You must have an Anime Midwest weekend badge to participate.
Fashion ShowWhen is the fashion show?
The time is TBD. It could be Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
How can I become a model?
Please fill out the FASHION SHOW application. (not yet open)
Can I help even if I'm not a model?
We need makeup artists and stage crew as well. Use the same form.
What are the criteria for modeling?
You must be at least 18 or older, and you must fit. BABY is only able to bring a limited number of outfits, so you must be able to fit into them. Keep in mind we have two fashion shows and you can apply for one OR both.
