In this post I mentioned that I love to dress up. Costume parties, theme parties, any opportunity to make matching t-shirts… I’m in. So I thought I would share a few of my faves!
Top row from left:
SNL Party: I dressed up as a giant cup of soup from this Justin Timberlake sketch. And yes, that costume was made by yours truly.
‘Gold Fever’ Party: This was from a friend’s Gold-themed birthday party. I think it was around the time Kanye West’s “Golddigger” came out. That, or I may just remember that song being played a lot that night.
Masquerade Party: A girlfriend asked everyone to come in masquerade for her birthday party one year. A few of us girls got together one night to make our masks, which was half the fun!
2nd row from left:
Halloween 2005: Four of us girlfriends dressed up as the Average Joes team from the movie Dodgeball. Randomly enough, later that night we ran into a group of guys dressed up as the Globo Gym team, their on-screen rival! It was pretty funny.
MS Fundraiser: A friend had been recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), so he decided to throw an MS fundraiser. You had to come dressed as anything using the initials MS. A couple girlfriends and I decided to be Marks and Spencer (and guess who got the short end of the stick by being the ampersand….)!
Halloween 2007: I was Alphabits cereal. My friend was the Cereal Killer.
3rd row from left:
Wig night: Self explanatory? There may or may not have been martinis involved.
Pirate party: My friend’s boyfriend’s birthday party. Complete with a pirate bar downstairs and a “beach” in the backyard!
Halloween 2006: Another group costume – we were a farm scene that included two chickens, a sheep and a farm fence. Now you may think I also got the short end of the stick by being the fence, but I think it was the best part! :)
bottom row from left:
Christmas sweater party: I found these gems a day before the party at Value Village. $5 each. Score!
Halloween 2008: You may not be able to tell, but I had stuck little letters and words all over me — I was a Spelling Bee (did I mention that I also love word play?).
Bachelorette party: This was my inspiration for these Bachelorette party t-shirts. My friend made us matching t-shirts for my Bachelorette party in Seattle. On the front they said either “Bride to Be” or “Bachelorette,” and on the back there was a whole list of things we had to complete and check off while out on the town!
Thanks for bearing with me as I took a trip down memory lane!
