There was so much to see, and Val's keen eye took note of what seemed fashionable for weddings and brides in this often strange place she called home these days. Rand, of course, made certain to stop by every booth with jewelry and finery on display - he never thought she had enough! She argued a little, but making him happy was her favorite activity...and she couldn't resist letting him indulge. As far as she was concerned, all she needed was him - the party, the jewelry, even the ceremony was simply formalizing the commitment they had made.

But the delectable treats couldn't help but draw her attention, and she had to be subtly nudged away from talking shop with food vendors, taking note of all the dishes that met with his particular favor. No appointments, yet, for consultations...but she made certain she had contact information for the ones she thought might be worth discussing with Rand later...

Wedding Expo? Not where you would find Quinn in a thousand years, and yet there he was. There was something about this one though, something that said he had to be there, because really how many times was he going to see Saila dressed this way? So into the expo he went, and even in a decent outfit. Seemingly Quinn had really made an effort to not seem too jaded, as he was seen conversing with vendors and even taking a few business cards. Hey, he was someone's dad, paying for a wedding wasn't completely out of the picture. Mind you all this was laced in with tips of his flask, because really, sober wasn't how he was going to get through this.

Quinn wandered around until he found Grace and was almost embarrassed by his crazy stubble covered face, but she knew what was going on and what they had all been through, he hoped she'd give him a pass. Wandering for long enough, he waited for the fashion portion of the expo to begin because really that's what he was here for. To see his kid strut the catwalk.

This modeling experience was turning out far better than the last.

For one thing, she wasn't feeling like she would spontaneously combust and/or completely dissolve at any given moment. For another, she didn't have to go first this time. And then, there was nobody in the audience she was dreading having to see. As a matter of fact, there were at least two people out there whose presence made her grin at least a little to herself.

Saila could practically see Hex and Quinn, sitting far enough apart that they wouldn't necessarily see each other, but considerably closer than either of them probably realized.

The Fashion Show went really well. Exchanging thumbs-up and good luck glances with the people she knew and even a few that she didn't, Saila was pretty sure she'd rocked it this time. Stoked, too, to see that she was pretty much the only person selected to wear black, and it even had sleeves! She still had to use the pendant, but even so. She felt like an evil queen out of some twisted fairy tale, and it carried her through not having to think too hard about the whole wedding thing.

When the show was over, the purple haired teen changed out of her lacy wedding dress into something a little more movable, and since the charm was already in place she didn't bother to cover her arms. Saila found Quinn first, giving the White Wolf a big hug and even smooching him on the cheek for coming to support her. Especially considering everything going on. He was doing a good job of maintaining well, but Saila could tell that the setting had him on edge, so she kissed him on the cheek again and sent him on his way.

Good thing, too. She spotted Hex not five minutes later.

An amused grin painted pale features still done up in Fashion Show glitter. "...I can't believe you actually came," she said with a smirk that maybe covered how touched she was, though the subsequent hug did little to hide it. Mindful of the utter girliness of it all, Saila tried to keep her time in the Vendor Area short, but there were still a few things and people she wanted to see.

First up was Grace of Hair or Dye, mostly to thank the girl again for the excellent job she'd done on everyone's hair, and to introduce her to the big guy beside her. Grace was officially the first of the Caravan folk to meet him, a fact Saila hadn't really thought about until it was done. She snapped a selfie at the booth so she could get her discount later while Hex and Grace were trying to figure out how to fit both of them into a picture together. Apparently it ultimately involved a chair.

Then it was around to Baroness Beauty to say hello to Sabine. Oh, poor Hex. First the hair place and then make up! Still, Saila couldn't not support her friend, and of course peruse the new line of colors while she was there. Hey, just because the girl only ever wears black doesn't mean she doesn't also love color!

Last stop was Renegade Regalia to see all the pretty sparklies. The booth definitely did not disappoint, and her strange eyes were more or less glued to the stunning shoulder pieces on display there. She spent some time ogling all the other pretty shinies, too, a little grin on her face.

Keeping the trip short and sweet, there were a lot of booths she missed but the crowd was getting thick and there were other things to do, so it didn't take much convincing to have her headed out the door with Hex, splitting from his side only to retrieve her car so she could follow the bike out of the parking lot.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Trading turns for manning the booths for Trash and Addie’s baking business, on the rare moments when the young banshee was left alone at the tables; she was staring blankly at customers who wandered up with questions. It was better than giving them a creepy smile, but thankfully any potential clients chalked it up to awkward drummer girl. Plus she would hand them samples of cupcakes or cookies, along with a business card or two until they either walked away or Addie or Michi came wandering back to take over. Client relations were not Misery’s strong suit.

She wasn’t planning a wedding any time soon, and she laughed at any suggestion of the sort as well as spouting off, “I’m only fifteen man!”

Misery was however, aware that a sweet sixteen bash was in the works for her birthday later this year, so a few booths were zeroed in on to check out in preparation of that. Her adventures in particular took her to Renegade Regalia, Baroness Beauty and Hair or Dye Studios.

The hair salon was first up where she flipped through the portfolio at the center of the booth and snagged a few extra coffin stickers because hey – Coffin. She fit right in. When asked if she was looking for something in particular, Misery could only shrug and tug on one of her two jet black braids. “Something cool? My BFFs have cool colorful hair, but my hair is all black and boring.” A childish complaint, but she was a teenager. Mentioning the pending party in October, she went off with a business card in hand and a promise that she’d get her mother to come by with her sometime. They worked evenings, right?

Next up was Baroness Beauty to see if they could find a solution to her running cat eye problem. Super extra waterproofing was needed!!! The candy was pretty good too, who ever heard of candy and chocolate being good for you? She asked if they had vitamin D in them, because she was deficient.

Last up was Renegade Regalia, where the owner Una Vogue must have seen Misery over at the Baroness Beauty booth because the woman wouldn’t let her touch anything.

“What is –“
“Don’t touch that.”
“What about –“
“Don’t touch that.”
“How about –“
“Don’t touch anything.”

Misery sulked until she was given the small plum and navy gift box and promptly shooed away by Una.

Her hands weren’t even that dirty!

This is not the kind of thing that Ray Kowalski usually finds himself at (unless it's for work, and he's infiltrated stranger gatherings in the past in the name of truth, justice, and all that jazz), but he decides he may as well check out the attractions while he's here - or some of them, anyway, because some are just too wedding focused for his comfort level, especially given a recent conversation he'd had with his girlfriend's father figure.

He spends a little time at the De Luca Dance Studio booth to watch the demo, and if Charlie was with him instead of getting ready for the catwalk, it's likely he would've taken her by the hand and dragged her out onto the makeshift dance floor, unable to stop himself. As it is, though, he just hangs out for a few minutes before being distracted away by Brambles Orchard. Alcohol certainly makes a thing like this more enjoyable, so he takes advantage of the tasting opportunities and might buy a bottle or three of cider to take home.

Renegade Regalia is his last stop, mostly because he's somewhat familiar with the name due to Charlie's mention of them as being responsible for a particular bottle that lives in his medicine cabinet (and several other bottles he's caught glimpses of) - and it's here when he starts to get a little anxious, when he sees the beautiful pieces on display, because they would pair so nicely with a wedding gown--

Ray really should've been paying more attention when Charlie had told him (in passing, to be fair) that she was modeling in a Wedding Expo - or really, he should've put two and two together if he'd thought about it for any length of time and realized that it was likely she'd be wearing a wedding dress. He figures it'll be no big deal, that the dress is probably something that won't quite fit her personality, that it'll only make him think about it less, but oh--

The dress fits perfectly, his girl is too beautiful, fey little smile at the end enough to make his heart skip a beat - but don't even think about it, Kowalski. He absolutely insists that they leave right away once he's got Charlie by the hand after she's changed back into her street clothes after the show has concluded - otherwise she'll be late for work, and isn't she hungry anyway, and doesn't she maybe want to check out that new Greek place by the apartment, maybe they have time before her shift starts, and hey, did she catch any of the game last night, and oh, what is she doing next weekend since this one is over anyway, and--

Lucky for Ray, Charlie Darling is excellent at following his lead, and she doesn't breathe a word about weddings to him - but he wonders (though won't ask) if she kept the dress.

Lisa dragged Nayun along to the wedding expo as part of their date, and the Trickster lived up to her name by not denying any inquiries about wedding plans in the future. “Well, I liked it so I put a ring on it,” all teeth showing in her wolfish smile.

Wandering around to the various booths, catcalling during the fashion show (that Asher Price fellow she could eat up), picking up the free swag and tasting free samples, it was a different way to show up and support the local businesses in town.

And as they’d been to the opening of Renegade Regalia, she was sure to stop by their booth before leaving the expo, just to see what new shinning gold items they might have on hand. Her own hand was often fondly clutching or tugging on the bear claw necklace that had been given to her, worth more sentimentally than any of the shoulder pieces or tiaras on display in the booth.
