Uncanny Occasions is an event planning boutique specializing in unconventional virtual events, social events, paint parties, team-building events, fandom events, and so much more. We strive to deliver unique and personal experiences. Regardless of how uncanny the occasion, it will be beloved and memorable for you and your guests. We are a body positive, sex positive, gender positive and queer positive boutique.
Uncanny Occasions was founded in October 2015 with the goal of helping like-minded individuals create events that are a true representation of who they are. We only do specialized, nontraditional events so we are able to give your event the attention it deserves. Our intention is to give people a space to geek out with no judgment. Heck, we'll probably geek out with ya!
Who We Are
One of us is an award-winning theatrical director, designer, and performer with over 15 years of costuming experience, a film degree from USC's acclaimed School of Cinematic Arts, and experience in staging and design that goes back to a childhood working in the family business designing weddings and other special holiday events. The other has assisted in the production of large-scale entertainment soirees including red carpet events such as the Environmental Media Association Awards, movie premieres, press junkets and international galas while working with Warner Bros Studios Special Events. When we combined forces--POW! BOOM! BAM!
We began working together in 2013 after co-founding a production company specializing in live-theater stage shows blending pop-up art galleries, live painting, variety acts, and cosplay. We have presented cosplay workshops at San Diego Comic Con International and WonderCon and have participated in panels at Whedoncon. We are both ordained ministers, filmmakers, witches & mermaids--one of us is even NAUI Specialty Dive Mermaid certified. Together we produce virtual events, as well as live events in Los Angeles & Denver. In 2019, we joined the Artsy Association and completed training for Gallery on the Go art entertainment events and are FUN Certified!
