Tea party

Monday 2/6/17 - Tuulia -head organizer

You are all invited to enjoy tea and treats at the tea party held at the In the Wonderland day section of Looking for Alice!

The day event includes first-rate program, amazing guests of honour, possibility to visit interesting vendors and great company! But most of all, we have TEA. The tea party will hold a great role in the day event and we promise you that there will be more than one cup.

Remember to inform us your allergies or a special diet before 8th of February by emailing us at

We will explore various different teas, how to brew them, and about the culture and traditions of tea. Teashop Chaya will offer us delicious tea and our trusted grand tea mistress will keep you entertained through the teajourney.

The tea party will also have a raffle with amazing prices from our vendors! Raffle tickets will be given for visitors in our info desk during the day, so be sure to get one! 

During the tea party we will also have a Q&A session with our guest of honor Triple Fortune! So prepare to ask the trickiest questions from the lovely Babi and Kaie!

In the Wonderland päiväosiossa on luvassa teekutsut!

Päivätapahtumassa pääsee nauttimaan laadukkaasta ohjelmasta, hyvästä seurasta sekä shoppailemaan! Päivätapahtumassa on kuitenkin suuressa roolissa teekutsut ja itse tapahtumaa voisikin nimittää teekutsuiksi, sillä tee ei heti tule loppumaan ja kunnollisten lolitojen tavoin vannomme santsikuppien nimeen!

Teekutsuilla pääsee maistelemaan erilaisia teelaatuja ja pieniä herkkuja. Kutsuilla tutustutaan erilaisiin teelajikkeisiin, niiden oikeaoppiseen hauduttamiseen ja kuullaan teen kulttuurista ja perinteistä. Chayan teekaupan antimet tarjoavat monipuolisen teematkan ja luotettu teemestarimme vastaa viihtyvyydestä teehetken ajan.

Muistathan ilmoittaa ruoka-aineallergiasi ja erityisruokavaliosi viimeistään 8.2.2017 lähettämällä sähköpostia

Teekutsujen aikana suoritetaan myös arvonta, josta voi voittaa myyjiemme lahjoittamia mahtavia palkintoja. Arvontalipukkeita saa päivällä infopisteestä, muista käydä hakemassa omasi!

Teekutsujen aikana pääsemme myös kuulemaan kunniaviaredemme Babin ja Kaien kertovan merkistään, yhtyestään ja lolitamuodista japanissa Q&A sessiossa!

Children of the night masquerade ball

Sunday 4/3/16 time 8:32 PM - Tuulia - head organizer

I am Tuulia, one of the Hellocon and Baby the Stars Shine Bright tea party organizers. I was also in charge of the tea party last year! I’m very excited to be working with Baby to create yet another amazing Hellocon tea party! This year we are changing the things a bit and we will actually be serving a warm meal during the event! The menu includes savoury starters, sparkling wine, spinach-ricotta-canneloni as main dish and cake and tea for dessert. Check out the detailed menu here.
We chose the theme for the tea party to be Children of the Night –masquerade ball, which suits the image of Baby's darker label Alice and the Pirates perfectly! The venue, Hotel Arthur main hall, suits the theme impeccably well. The main hall is actually an old Jugend era church which creates a perfect setting for a vampire ball. Notice that the tea party is at the old Jugend building next to the newer extension, so instead of entering from the the main door, enter from the Jugend building door.
We have prepared a lots of program for the Children of the night –masquerade ball tea party. There will be classical music performed by Loviisa Karhumäki, a vampire themed pole art performance by Shadow, meet and greet with Baby the Stars Shine Bright, best dressed contest, a bingo and lots of other interesting activities!
Next I wanted to list some movies that you can get inspiration for preparing your outfit for the ball. First up of course, Dracula movies!

“Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!”
― Bram Stoker


Then another obvious choice is Interview with the vampire. Isn’t little Claudia an ultimate gothic lolita?


Another classic with beautiful costumes is Phantom of the Opera.

Then because there can not be too much Depp, three movies with beautiful costumes and dark setting featuring Johnny Depp, Sweeney ToddSleepy Hollow and From Hell.



And lastly, to get you in the mood of a masquerade ball and for the love of Bowie, the ball scene from The Labyrinth

Have you already started to plan your outfit for the Children of the night-masquerade ball? What is your inspiration?

See you at the tea party!
