Images of the 'drink me room' the evening before opening
Art Department Lead hired to incorporate a previous design of the touring immersive experience set into the rental retail space in Georgetown, D.C.
The space was a 2-story space. Upon entering, guests would walk to the check-in table & present their tickets. They were then free to roam a lobby space that was created to look like a storefront for a minimalist hat shop. In the center of the room there was a 'dressing room' which contained a large mirror masking a stairwell upstairs. There was a hidden camera inside and guests were poked fun at by an actor on a mic & told to push the doors open. They then walked up the staircase to the 'drink me room' where they were given their first beverage. A large bookcase then opened to reveal a forced perspective hallway with a door at the end. Upon knocking, a server would open the door to reveal the Tea Party Room where the event took place.
