This last weekend D and I went to a murder mystery dinner. But not just any murder mystery dinner -- it was a 1920's speakeasy themed dinner. And I always enjoy a good theme party! Believe it or not, as much as I love Halloween and dressing up (more costumes seen here) I couldn't believe that I have never dressed up as a flapper before. Because I booked this dinner on Groupon back in October, I forgot all about it and didn't have an outfit until, ohhhhh a few hours before. Luckily this resourceful girl was able to throw a few pieces together and the results were pretty damn good! My favorite McGiver move was my flapper-esque headband which was put together with my headband I use for the gym, with a flower pin I usually wear on blazers and sweaters for work.
These fun pics were taken at the venue.
Man I didn't realize how tall we were! ; )
Bootleggin' ain't easy.
Attempting our best Bonnie and Clyde faces. D nailed it. Me, not so much.
I look more like a madame don't you think?
obligatory iphone selfie.
flapper hair and makeup.
and I'll just leave you with a cute picture of Tiki watching the Golden Globes with us!
As you can see, she is clearly very into it.
So has anyone ever done a murder mystery dinner before? I love doing fun, interactive things like this, so this is actually the 4th time I've done one. The first two were when I was in high school, and both times I was the killer (weird right?!) And then the next time D and I went with my parents around Halloween time (very festive of course) and my dad ended up being the killer. This time around there was so many people at the dinner we had to work on teams instead of individuals and I was on the killers team. What are the odds of that?? I'm really starting to wonder here.... ; )
