Professional Party People

1 Jan

As my bon voyage to 2009 and to welcome in 2010, I could think of nothing better than to relive what was called by many “the party of the year”.

And by “many” I mean one person.

But that still counts, right?

A few weeks ago, Mr. Bee and I hosted the Fire & Ice Winter Formal Extravaganza House Party (aka: The Glitter Party). To be honest, the party’s title would have been longer if Evite didn’t limit you to roughly 800 characters. Fuckers.

If you remember, the decision to have said party occurred back in November when Sissy, Arla-Shay and me spent 112 hours trying on disgusting 80′s party dresses at the Goodwill Glitter Sale. We couldn’t pass up buying these eye-candy dresses for ourselves and henceforth and heretofore decided that we’d have a party simply to give ourselves a reason to wear said Dresses of The Awesome.

All in all, we invited roughly 20 people to the shindig. If you weren’t invited, don’t worry, your invite totally got lost in the mail. I SWEARS.

The only requirement was to wear something spectacularly (and disgustingly) glittery and/or sequined. Oh, and bring a horrible white elephant gift. And food to donate to a local food bank.

What can I say? You gotta work to come to one of my parties.

But with that said, my crazy ass friends did NOT let us down…

That is a CUSTOM-MADE suit, people. Like he *WANTED* to look like that.

You might have noticed something a little different about that last photo. You know, the guy dressed head-to-toe as THE GINGERBREAD MAN! This guy was hi-larious. Like, I seriously think he should rent himself out to parties ’cause he was the mother-fuckin’ life of this one!

Not only did he dress as the Gingerbread Man (plus sparkly homemade bow tie and Chippendale-esque undies), but he kept it on ALL night. He even had to drink his alcohol through a straw placed in the mouth-hole of his costume. AND he spoke in a high-pitched Gingerbread Man voice.

The entire night.

Really, people. He NEVER broke character. Even when singing Feliz Navidad and Total Eclipse of the Heart on karaoke with his wife.

Despite the sequins and glitter that we’re still cleaning up from the party, the party was a huge success!

I think this photo says it all.

I don’t know what’s better: Mr. Bee’s expression in this photo or that Arla-Shay doesn’t even remember it happening!

A little glimpse in to this past Saturday’s First Annual Fire & Ice Winter Formal Extravaganza House Party 2009. Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler as sung by a grown ass man in a Ginger Bread Man Costume. Awesome sauce at its finest. (Sorry that the video is so dark!)
