Midsummer’s Night Dream

I know its still winter time, but I have been trying to plan a great Midsummer’s Night Dream for (duh) this summer. If you have ever read the Shakespearen play or seen the beautiful movie, you know why this type of party has to be scheduled during the summer. It is a sensual movie about four complicated people that get caught up in the fairy kings feud and tricked with a magical potion to fall in love with the first person they see. After a few mistakes, the people begin to see the person that they truly love. This story includes fantasy, mystery and most of all the quest for love. All these elements make for a very beautiful and sensual summer party.

The theme for this party definitly calls for fairy costumes! Some costumes that would be perfect for this

Popular Movie Costumes for Boys

During Halloween of 2007, there were several costumes for boys that were in such high demand they sold out almost immediately after they were put on the market, and were extremely hard to find after that. Of course the Transformer Optimus Prime costume for boys sold out the fastest, since the movie was such a huge success. Another popular costume that was in huge demand was the High School Musical Troy costume, also because of the success of the movie it was tied to. For three years in a row the Jack Sparrow Pirates of the Carribean costume has been the favorite of many costume buyers and pirate lovers as the sequals keep coming. And it wouldn’t be Halloween for boys without the ever popular Star Wars costumes like the Jango Fett Deluxe child Costume and the Darth Vader Deluxe child costume that seels out every year as the newer models come out with more to offer.

Celebrity Party

Last year a few friends and I decided to throw a party where we all dressed like the craziest celebrities out there. I decided to take on the role of Mariah Carey by wearing a long, ridiculous sparkley dress

Rocky Horror Experience

The other day I had watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show, a musical about two yuppies that get trapped in a insane alien’s sexual escapades. It is a really fun and entertaining movie where the audience is urged to participate by responding to certain things in the movie. For example, at the wedding scene in the beginning the audience is supposed to throw rice at the screen just as the characters are doing in the movie. There are multiple instances throughout the movie where audience participation is encouraged.

I came to work the other day and told this crazy guy Donovan that I thought that movie was very interesting. He told me that he goes to certain theaters once a month and dresses up like all the characters. I thought it was pretty strange. The next day I came to work I was signing in and I saw him in the Frank-N-Furter Adult costume strutting around. It was very funny to see him in costume with the Pearl Choker and his full make up done with the Rocky Horror Make Up Kit. The proceeding day I was counting inventory and I saw him lurking around in the Riff Raff Adult Costume. He even had on the crazy make up and the essential Riff Raff Wig! I thought he couldn’t get any stranger but of course the next day I was waiting for the bathroom and suddenly he walked out wearing the Magenta Adult Costume. His Magenta Wig looked exactly like the one in the movie because it was big and bouncy. I must say it was quite fabulous. We had a nice break during the holidays and I thought Donovan would be over the whole dressing up phase but right when I stepped into the office he was doing the Time Warp dance in the Columbia Adult costume with another employee Micheline, also in a crazy Rocky Horror Picture Show costume.

I must say, Donovan is one unusual character.
