WonderCon Weekend: LA’s Fans Were In Anaheim

Wondercon Anaheim Los Angeles 1

Extracurricular Activities’  with its pictures of couples in love at various well known locations and cats riding futuristic flying motorcycles was one of the hundreds of booths at WonderCon that took over the Anaheim Convention Center last weekend. The abundance of fans took down one side of the convention hall’s bathroom’s on Saturday evening. Fans alone could not stop the plumbing on three levels of such a large convention hall right outside of Disneyland. Many to a majority them were from LA, wanting to get outside of city limits for a day or two. Animators, artists, filmmakers, exhibitors, dealers, cosplayers and even your board game enthusiasts were all together clogging the drains that security could only say, “Sorry, for the inconvenience, ” for.

Emio Greco/ PC’s ROCCO At REDCAT

Emio Greco PC Rocco REDCAT 1

Having never seen a performance by the Amsterdam based Emio Greco/PC dance company, I was fully unprepared for the extremalist, action that unfolded during their award winning production ROCCO at REDCAT on Thursday, April 17th.  I have also never witnessed such violent and tender masculine prowess and physical endurance on a stage, in a theater space nor in an arena before.  Coming close would be Nick Duran’s powerfully emotional every time you are near which he presented only a few nights before ROCCO with Brian Getnick at Pieter in Highland Park on the evening of the blood moon eclipse.  I venture to imagine that if Nick lived in Amsterdam he would collaborate with Emio Greco/PC–or vice versa if Greco and Pieter C. Schouten were based in L.A.  In Nick, I see a younger Emio(if only in premonition from photos and videos) with a similar originality and control of one’s dramaturgic, dance performance aesthetic.

Perry Ellis Fashion Illustrations By Wyatt Hough

Wyatt Hough Perry Ellis Los Angeles 2

If you caught the LAIY Twitter and Instagram last night, you probably saw that we were attending a Perry Ellis event in Hollywood. It was a showing of their latest collection and a coming out for them in terms of a new identity and direction thanks to the new leadership of Michael Macarri. It was kind of exciting!

One of the best parts of the experience and undoubtedly the Los Angeles takeaway was that the P.E. team did their research and gifted all the attendees with a portrait drawn by local illustrator Wyatt Hough. They were spot on and adorable! We had to share despite initially feeling like the event was a “You had to be there!” type of thing. These illustrations? They’re divine—and we’re sure he might be able to do one for you.
