The Royal Tea Party I planned turned out -to me- a complete disaster, but everyone enjoyed it because it was more of a hangout event. There are cosplay gatherings where people pay a lot of money just to hang out and take pictures with one another, so I learned many things:
1- Take payments from people before you buy things
2- Plan way way way ahead
3- Make sure you know who you are planning with and be able to have weekly meetings with one another to split the costs and work equal amounts.
My mistake: I bought things before receiving payments
tons of people couldn't make it so I lost a lot more than I was hoping
I spent almost $300 on materials when the other person spent less than $100
She has received $50 of the payments and I have received...$60?
I don't want to be rude, but is it fair to ask for all the payments since I spent MUCH MUCH more than she did?
