There were kissing llamas!
|House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard. Love the rustic look~|
We had early admittance so I went scouting around the place when it was still near-empty. :D I super love all their ceiling details especially the last one. It was used as the staff room so I guess most people didn't get the chance to see, the patchwork is really beautiful~
Bumped into the guys from Imaginary Friends Studios and spoke for a little while.

The deviantART Muro was announced after the event opened proper. Everyone was encouraged to try it out on all the laptops by the bar equipped with the awesome multi-touch Wacom Bamboo tablet.

|Yuumei's Augen Auf playing cards|
Basically A writes something and passes it to B. B draws what's written and passes to C. C interprets what the drawing is and writes his interpretation and passes to D, then D draws, etc.
So this is what I wrote, and Toby drew. But when it came back after a round, what the paper said was "Ponyo is stuck in a trash".
(While photographing this I fell off the chair I was standing on cuz I was using a 70-200. -_-)
After the failed (but fun) game we went roaming around
There was a wall of postcards from deviants around the world wishing dA happy birthday.
|Someone used a page from my postcard book! So they do get used afterall, hehehe.|
On the 2nd floor there was a funny chair and yuumei took a photo of me looking kinda angry (as I usually do T_T)
Then we went back to check out the llamas again!
|I love how they're walking in the opposite direction of the arrow signs :D|
|With imhappyface yuumei XD|
deviantART's co-founder Angelo (aka Spyed) did a recap of dA in the last 10 years for his closing speech. Talked about the first days, various versions, groups, and the epic world tour.
|deviantART version 2, I was there! XD|
|So many people~~|
|Photos from the deviantART World Tour|
And then the birthday song~!!

DJs came in to spin afterwards and the party continued till 2am or so. Toby and I were too beat so we went to Koreatown with two other friends Grace and Christie to have Korean BBQ. Yum~~
Sunday we met up with Yuumei and Leah at Little Tokyo for lunch and some shopping (mostly snacks lol) and I went to pick up my Alexander McQueen dress. And everyone was happy and I hope that deviantART's 20th birthday bash will be even more epic. :D
