Thank you so much for talking with us, Justine! Please tell us about your creative journey, leaving your blog and returning to music as Stellina.

Thanks so much for this opportunity to share my story with your readers. I had long given up on my dream to be a singer. My blogging career was overall, on paper, super successful. But I wasn’t fully happy because I was turning my back on something that fed my soul, which was music. I told myself, “not this lifetime.”

Here is the last batch of photos from Thursday from the convention— it really was a busy day! A busy day being rowdy with the Outlander dudes for a few minutes… totally the funniest part of the day.

Afterwards, I made my way to the Her Universe fashion show to cheer for friends who were part of the contest. Check out more photos below after the jump!

Labyrinth of Jareth Brings a Fantasy Realm to the Millennium Biltmore

Labyrinth of Jareth brings the fantasy realm of the movie of the same name to guests every year, by providing a lavish setting to dress up in your whimsical best in a beautiful venue, with performances, merchants, dancing, music, and more available to create a night to remember. We are so grateful to Sypher Arts Studio, who puts on this annual event, and giving all of us nerds a chance to dress up and have the chance to experience such an amazing event!

This year, Labyrinth made a last minute venue change to the historic Millennium Biltmore hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The hotel is an architectural treat in itself, having been erected in the 1920s in a mix of  Spanish-Italian Renaissance Revival, Mediterranean Revival, and Beaux Arts styles. The hotel also played host to the origins of the Academy awards, hosting the Oscars in its early years.

With this historic change in venue, Labyrinth was an even greater treat than usual for patrons this year, as guests could explore 3 floors of rooms providing different musical, dance, and other various stage entertainment. On the main stage in particular, dancers and musicians spun a fantasy tale told through a sequence of performances all night, culminating in an epic all-cast finale that even included Sparkles, the dragon!

We are so grateful to be fantasy nerds in a town like Los Angeles, where other like-minded artists can come together and experience such a magical night every year.

Below are some of our photos from the night, but they barely scratch the surface of this amazing masquerade ball. We can’t wait for next year!
