I am SO happy that I got to go to the Scott Pilgrim’s SUPER FUN PARTY! An E3 after party hosted by I Am 8-Bit in conjunction with Universal Studios, promoting the release of both the movie and the Scott Pilgrim video game. I did not have work on the day of and managed to drag my butt, and my friends’ butts, to L.A. super early and we stood in-line for about an hour before the party opened. It was all good though because we had a food truck, Fry Smith, to entertain our appetite… did I ever mention how in-love I am with all of L.A.’s food trucks?
We slowly trickled inside the small production studio and I loved the atmosphere immediately. I felt like I was in a house party, Scott Pilgrim style… a house party with a FREE KEG BUFFET WITH DIFFERENT BEER FLAVOR THAT IS! There were three different stations where attendees can play the full unreleased video game on the PS3 (I am hoping they release the game for Nintendo DS because it would be perfect for it, in my opinion!).
One television in the corner played the movie trailer on repeat, and there was even a separate room for the dance floor. They had another room that was reserved for the cast members of the movie, but alas… Michael Cera and gang never showed up. It’s okay though, because it certainly did not take away from the experience of the whole night! Though the VIP room remained sad and empty for the rest of the night. Creator of the series, Bryan O’Malley, was there of course, but I failed to say hello to the guy. Though I’m sure he got a lot of love from fans throughout the night.
The people there were a lot of fun and I met some of the boys from DESTRUCTOID— you guys are awesomely nuts (looking at you Ben)! Many friends attended, including Hi Hi Caro! Watch out for her polaroids from the party on her website! I had fun and dressed up for the party. I made a SEX BOB-OMB/Scott Pilgrim necklace, too!
There was much dancing that happened too, and even an epic GLEE moment with everybody belting out Journey’s BELIEVE on the dance floor. If you’re a fan of this series, you completely missed out on such a great party. It lived up to it’s name! Went home happy and even got some cool swag at the end- I love my new Ramona shirt.
I may put up an edited video of some of the craziness in a different post, but for now, enjoy the photos and check out the slideshow below.
Geeks know how to party. Just sayin’!
