If you haven’t heard of EMP, you are missing out! They sell such an awesome array of merch, including loads of Disney and Harry Potter stuff, and so much more! They often get items which are usually only available from Hot Topic in the USA so it’s so great to have a European stockist where we can get some of these coveted items. They also stock a lot of plus size clothing which I really love being plus sized myself. I’ve shopped with them a few times and I just love their products and their customer service.
So, I was so thrilled and thankful when they invited me to their Halloween Extravaganza this week that they put on for various social media bloggers etc. They had invited me to their Christmas Party last year but I was unfortunately too poorly to go, so I was so happy that I was able to go to this one.
It was held in London at Old Street Records, down in the basement room which had been decorated perfectly for a spooky Halloween party; just such a cool setting. Unfortunately my phone struggled to take pictures as it was all dark and misty but I got a few and I have pinched a few from some of my friends that they have kindly let me share with you too.
We were greeted with a goody bag of sweets and things, and they had popcorn, cupcakes and sweets available for us all to help ourselves to. The cupcakes were vegan or gluten free which was so nice because my good friend Sian (@sianpoppins88) can only have gluten free things so it was so nice to see her reaction at being able to eat something at an event like this! Thank you EMP! I tried one myself too and it was yummy! They also had pizza later on in the evening which was really nice too, we were well fed!
It was so nice to meet so many of my Disney friends that I know via Instagram, in real life. A few of them I had met previously so it was so nice to see them again, and to meet others for the first time. At the end of the post, I’ll write everyone’s Instagram names so please make sure you go and follow them all as they are such lovely people. It was also so nice to meet the EMP team, especially Elena who I have communicated with many times on Instagram etc. She is so nice!
There was a lady doing tarot readings but I didnt get chance to have mine done. My Mum did though (she came with me as she is my carer and I need assistance going out) but she wasn’t too thrilled as apparently she’s not going to win the lottery 😂 Whilst we were all chatting and mingling, there was a fabulous magician going round the tables doing tricks too. His name was Norvil, of Norvil and Josephine, and he was just fantastic. Amazing tricks and he had us all in stitches! He also performed a set later on in the evening too which again, was just fantastic! I absolutely loved the theming of his act and his magic was so impressive. He involved people from the audience too which always makes it more fun. I’d love to see him perform again, he truly was fantastic.
