Costume Party Craziness.......

Last night I went to a costume party. The host decided that the party needed a theme so everyone had to dress as a rock star from the 70's or 80's. We were the Jackson 5. Check out this pic. Yes, the girls really did paint their faces. Lisa sells Mary Kay cosmetics so she picked out a really dark foundation. It worked. Dave refused to paint his face and obviously Jimmy didn't have to. From the left, it's Dave, Jimmy, TT, Lisa and me. Dave and TT are married and so are Lisa and Jimmy. Luckily, I'm currently single so the Jackson 5 worked for us. LOL! You should've seen the looks we got when we went into the local convenience store to pick up some beverages. It was also our city's annual Halloween party down in the bar district last night so we didn't even flinch when the Cowardly Lion was paying for a case of beer next to us at the register.
Here's the host of the party. He was Elton John. Really it's just a purple pimp suit, right Johnny?

But do you have shoes like these??? Leopard print platforms!

The host and hostess had even included a DJ with karaoke. Everyone was expected to perform a song from whoever you were dressed as. We did "ABC". We even had a little dance routine which you can see us attempting there in the background. It was hilarious!! The host's wife was Toni Basil. Remember "Oh Mickey" and the cheerleader outfit? Unfortunately though, somehow I managed to not get a picture of her. A good time was had by all. My friends are always a lot of fun! Aren't our clothes awesome? We got everything at Goodwill for just a few dollars. I've got to give props to Jimmy and Lisa. They bought jeans at Goodwill and some fabric and created the custom bell bottoms you see. Lisa's jean inserts came from a bed sheet. I think that is too funny!

I almost forgot to mention that the host and hostess are also in the process of a China adoption. They are waiting for their Zoe. They're almost ready to be DTC when their paperwork finishes authentication. Do you think they should include the "Elton John sings karaoke" pic in their dossier packet to show China what they do in their spare time? Nahhh ... probably not.
