Themed parties are really fun. That is, if everyone actually participates!
Little V and I decided to have a Rubik's Cube party for last night. The intention was to raise money for our friend's car because it broke under our care... And the car is very important for the program he runs.
[A Rubik's Cube party is where everyone wears an article of clothing of every color on the cube and then trade clothes with people until you're all in one color!]
Little V and I decided to run over to the Salvation Army and look for our costumes! It turns out that it was actually the SA headquarters and not a thrift store, so we ventured a little farther and had lots of success.
The party was fun, even though V and I were the only ones to dress up! Oh well... we raised some money for the car, so that was good.
Wearing costumes doesn't have to be trashy or expensive. I think those are common mistakes that students make. I didn't spend more than ten dollars on this costume and lots of times you can wear stuff you already have in your closet. Thrift stores are good for things you'll only be wearing once. It's also not a good idea to wear your best clothes. Jungle Juice does NOT come out easily... and it is bound to be spilt on you by sloppy boys (or girls). I think the "trashy" thing speaks for itself. Be cute, not trashy.
