Fantasy Land for Girls – BeautyCon LA
Last Saturday, July 11th, I attended BeautyCon LA. I had an amazing time there, but unfortunately I was not able to Periscope (my user name is @OgYukiBomb). When I arrived around 11:45am, the traffic was crazy, weather was warm, and the location was already crowded. Luckily, I was able to skip the long line because I was under “press” for LA18 (and I am extremely grateful for it). Although I was part of press, I still waited in a very congested crowd of cranky attendees.
After the mission to get inside, BeautyCon LA was like a fantasy land for girls. There were so many photo booths, panels, displays, giveaways, and more.
There was a Barbie section where you can have a customized order of your own Barbie. I think everyone’s favorite thing about this section was the Barbie 3D photo booth. There was a selection of Barbie dolls you can use as props and you just have fun posing in the booth.
Another memorable booth was the Nike booth. There was a line to take a photo with the angel wings made of Nike shoes for a good reason. While I was in line, I wanted to take pictures of the angel wings without me. So I asked a cute girl at the con to take one for me. She was really sweet and nice about it. Her Instagram is @CrystalyLiu :] Once a person took their picture, they just need to upload it to social media, tag #NikeWomen then show it to a Nike representative. In return, you can choose from a selection of a giveaway. I chose the earrings. :p
Another section I really enjoyed was The Platform. It was a nice little space to take pictures and every hour there was a panel. A really cute one was to make your own Minnie Mouse ears. Next to The Platform, there were inflatable props to take pictures with. Of course, I chose the donut. :]
What do you guys think of the con? I think it was definitely worth the wait to explore these little fun events. :] It is also a great way to meet new people. <3
