"How many museums are happy all the time? This is why we love ToonSeum so much," said patron Lucy Stewart, who was dressed as Lucy from "The Lego Movie," complete with purple and blue streaked hair. ToonSeum's first Cause-Play party was held Saturday to help sustain this space, currently showing a Wonder Woman exhibit. Japanese street fashion, furries, "Star Wars" characters and, of course, the Ghostbusters all showed up to join forces for good.
After the VIP party wrapped at ToonSeum, guests moved next door to Tilden lounge, where they danced, drank and bid on silent auction items to help support one of only three museums dedicated solely to cartoon arts. It was quite a sight to see the Cheshire Cat, not one but two Starbucks from the cult favorite "Battlestar Gallactica," as well as furry foxes, kittens, pirates and even The Rocketeer partying together. The event hosted more than 100 people.
