Greetings Boys and Ghouls,
As you may recall from the deep recesses of your mind, last year I had a spooky soiree in early October. Instead of the "10-10-10" Costume party, this year I'd like to celebrate The Fourth of Ghouly (Tuesday, October 4th) with a dinner party and game playing chenanigans (e.g. Alibi, Mystery Express, other murder themed games). It'll still be a costumed event so wear what you like or check out these patriotic ideas:
Deadsy Ross: creator of the American flag
Thomas Deadferson: dead president, architect, arch enemy of John Adams
Kill Bill Clinton: I'm not really sure this one works
Abraham Stinkin: wearer of top hats, hole in head
You get the idea. Let me know what you think. In the meanyime I need to finish the lyrics to my new song, "The Star Strangled Banner".
Daphne "gimme a reason to party. wait, don't need one." Lofgreen
Isn't that great?!
So, finally, the night arrive. Guests include the following...
TWO Rosie the Riveters:
Zombie Uncle Sam ("I WANT YOU.. to let me eat your brains?"):
And the hostess, which I THINK is Betsy Ross? Actually, I don't remember who she was but check out her sweet dance moves:
And the party details...
Daphne constructed a fireplace for the occasion:
Creepy Portraits (drawn by Ms. Ross):
I'll show mine, William, and June's costumes on a later post (as soon as I can get a decent picture of all three of us). We didn't wear American costumes, however.
Instead, we did a British Invasion. (hint hint)
What a great way to start this spooky month.
