Of course, the planning process began with getting to know our Bat Mitzvah Guest of Honor as it usually does. However, we found out that this tiny teen is multi-talented and has a diverse variety of interests. Therefore, it was difficult to focus on just one thing. So, just as the largest pop culture gathering, Comic Con, which features many pop culture elements such as animation, toys, collectibles, video games, anime, and more, Leahcon was born.
We started with the creation of her very own Bitmoji, and all else fell into place. The cartoon avatar was an exact duplication representing Leah’s soccer star status. Not only is she a rock star on the soccer field, she plays classical piano, enjoys video games, hi-tech gadgets, and other unique gaming items… and her favorite color is green!
Galaxy Productions, as always, understood our vision, and designed a space with a contemporary look. Unique lightsaber centerpieces surrounded by hand-dyed Dendrobium Orchids in green, blue, and yellow were placed in test tubes, along with plenty of candlelight, providing the perfect ambiance. Video mapping on a custom-made circular structure projected images of cool graphics and Leah throughout the party.
In addition to Ricky City keeping the guests on the dance floor with his upbeat personality and charm, Rock With U Entertainment came out with their 5-piece fusion band. They played a variety of instruments to add to the DJ’s mixes which kept things unique, entertaining and interesting. From candy, to embroidered hats to fidget spinners, glow batons, and gift cards, there were an abundance of DJ giveaways that the crowd loved.
Haute Cuisine served a delicious menu and plenty of drinks while Sam B. Photography and Owen O’Malley captured all the magical memories. The young teens (and many adults) also got a kick out of playing the soccer game during cocktail hour, as well as using 3D virtual reality goggles during the night.
However, the highlight of the evening was Leah’s grand entrance where she was perched at the keyboard playing an unbelievable classical piece which had everyone stunned. She then played with the band a few more times during the night while her #1 fans cheered her on. This certainly added a super cool and unexpected element to the party.
Playing with the band always makes a STYLED event.
Mazel Tov to Leah and her family!
