AR was held at the vancouver convention center, which is connected to the pan pacific hotel so the tea party was held there.
"tiket"-s lol were $50; at first they also required a con badge (which were $75 at door) but took down that requirement few days before the con XD;;;;  im guessing it was too expensive and they didnt get enough interests? XD;;;;;

we all gathered around 2pm, lined up to get our names checked, and received a pin with a number for the raffle and best dressed contest.  there were about 50 attendees.

the tea party was buffet style with a selection of tea bags and coffee.
my friends and i were near the end of the line so most of the seats were taken and desserts were running low (> <)  so maki and asuka kindly helped us all sit together and brought us food (*ノ▽ノ)キャッ

they asked us to vote for the best dresser by writing her/his number on the sheet :)

maki & asuka introduced AP's newest print, musee du chocolat
they explained it was a museum made of chocolate and how delicious everything looks, esp the melting frames lol. also mentioned the different styles and accessories that were going to be available (it was not for sale yet).

being stereotypical asians with asuka lol.  she was really friendly and talkative (′▽`o人)  we talked a lot in dealer's too and turns out we're from the same prefecture and our uncles work for the same organization in japan lol  small world XD


with maki (ノω\*)

maki & asuka were both very sweet and approachable :) they kept saying how they wanted to come back to vancouver again (´∪`*人)ウレシイ♪
a lot of girls were getting photos and autographs so i got my shop bag signed as well lol XD

AP divided us into 2 for group photos; there were too many of us to fit in one pic. unfortunately i only have this one...(does anyone have the other half?)

as the party ended, maki & asuka handed out gift bags containing a badge, catalog and candy X3
also in the photo is the wallet i won with autographed bag XD

i had a very good time ヽ(〃v〃)ノ  the AP staff was wonderful, and it was a pleasure seeing the local girls in so many different AP dresses and coordinates. very happy i had the chance to go!
