For months after I moved to Tower I was instantly drawn to the quaint gorgeous and charming world of Fresno's Historical Vintage Rose, an exquisite and refined establishment that beckoned to the most intriguing and romantic settings for any grand occasion, I mentioned it in passing to my love and after seeing the surreal and excited expression at what he deemed a quite Brilliant idea I was compelled to share this with the group.
It was an idea that took off like a wildfire, from the wonderful ideas for entertainment offered from internationally revered Bellydancers and Burlesque Sirens, to the instant community contributions of Chase Flowers (Owner Michael Chase-Butler Ambassador & Founder of The Gaslamp Society) & Organization and Ticket and Facility bookings by Period Entertainments & Recreational Costuming, and our lovely Vintage Rose Tea Room Host: Angie it was more than overwhelming the clamoring of such an idea to turn into what would be one of the most incredible events of my life.
It was overwhelming for Psychic Bella to be chauffeured by the wonderfully social and always fun Robert D. Stitt in bustles and corset along with my sexy rogue of a date and love Jimi Alipaz in time period costume to walk most elegantly to the beautiful cottage that is The Vintage Rose Tea Room
We arrived to a long procession of hats and decadent costumes, each person trailing up to, slowly, elegantly, very Victorianly to the entrance, we were greeted with flyers, guest lists, events to attend in the next month or so and was overwhelmed by the historical setting of this establishment.
As one of the Entertainers "Psychic Bella" for this decadent soiree I was eager to wander around, explore and get into a bit of Time Traveler mischief as my incredible date and dear friends were giddy as schoolgirls and boys to see how this day would unfold.
From wandering upstairs, and to the powder room, enjoying each lavished moment in this gorgeous world it was quite fun to see everybodies excitement especially when The 4th Doctor and his lovely companion showed up for fun and games!
So here it is our exquisite 1st annual Time Travel Tea Party! Enjoy the galleries and tid bits of yesteryear as Psychic Bella pulls you behind the veil to a space in time, a truly magical portal to the world of cosplay, decadence and time periods of long past.
Long Live The Entertainers!
