I remember getting ready in this hotel room and meeting these people for the first time after being friends online for years. It was a very weird but also very amazing experience. We used to do these Cats makeup video chats (long before Skype) so it did not really feel like a 'first' meeting. Katie is Bombalurina, Egle is Mr. Mistoffelees, Valerie is Victoria, Peter is The Rum Tum Tugger, and I'm in Jemima makeup.
We ended up planning our meetup the on Memorial Day weekend at the Hermosa Beach Pier where a Fiesta was going on. Oh boy did we get some strange strange looks. We decided to head to the park quickly afterwords for more photos and fun (and away from drunk creeps on the pier.)
I have video of the event but it's combined with the second meetup we did, so you'll just have to wait.
