Now that you've snapped yourself in front of the Mona Lisa in jelly bean form, captured manufactured scenes of joy, and documented your adventures in optical illusion museums, here's yet another made-for-Instagram experience in which to immerse yourself. If you've just realized that your collection of selfies isn't complete until you've gotten a portrait with a giant eggplant emoji, then you'll want to make your way to Westfield Santa Anita.
Emoji-inspired 'grammable palace Partywith is popping up now through March 31, 2019 at the Arcadia shopping center, where you'll find 15 kaleidoscopic corners ready for your next #content shoot. From a maze-like area of floral walls, two colorful (and scented!) ball pits, a disco-ready den, a photogenic laundry room, and yes, even certain oversized fruits (fun fact: eggplant isn't a veggie!), there's a backdrop to suit every headshot mood—maybe just don't tell the kiddos what that big purple non-vegetable really means on internetland.
If digital proof of your, uh, eggplant escapades isn't enough, there'll be Instax Mini cameras for guests to borrow at the event—it'll cost you just $15 for the film, which comes with playful stickers to deck out your analog photographic evidence. Entry to Partywith is timed to ensure your photo ops are crowd-free, but you'll want to arrive 15 to 20 minutes early if you're hoping to pick up one of those Polaroid cams.
Intrigued? Tickets for timed entry are $28 (note that kids 2 and under are free); buy them online right here.
