A Night With The Stars

On Saturday evening we were invited to a 21st Birthday Party in The Village Hall. The theme was Movies and we had to go dressed as Film Icons or Film Characters. We met in the pub beforehand and I nearly had to go home and change my underwear I laughed so much.

Harvey and I were Bonnie & Clyde but I was mistaken most of the evening for a French Hooker. Note Inspector Clouseau in the background.

There were 2 Marilyn Monroes one of which had trouble all evening with his cleavage which kept riding up and out of his dress. He also won best Female Fancy Dress

There was a larger than life Madonna and a Nun and

A great night was had by all but not such a good morning after.

LOL ~ I love costume parties and you all sure had some great one's represented!

Not to worry dear friend, I am so swamped that it's unbelievable. But then there is just so much more to enjoy when things calm down again.

Can't wait to see what you are sharing with Ghost Furniture.
Thanks for dropping by!

Hugs~

These photos cheered me up to no end--makes me wish I lived in England where everybody knows how to have a good time!!! Thank you for stopping by my blog today--sorry I've been absent lately too--just swamped with work & life, like everyone! So glad to hear Ghost Furniture is doing so well!

You do look a bit French there Di, but a hooker ?
Don't think I've ever been in a village hall.
Anything like this I would've remembered surely ?

Great trench for the costume! Looks like a ton of fun! (My husband and I were Bonnie & Clyde this Halloween and someone thought we were from Mad Men!? http://www.hitherandthither.net/2009/11/infamous-couple.html)

Those are excellent costumes. You're having way to much fun!

Splendid Willow said...

Oh, how fun! I can feel the great atmosphere just looking at these images. You look fab BTW (hooker, hardly!)! And I have to say people really put some effort into their customes. What was at stake? A castle?! Fun and playful crowd. Love it! xx Mon
