For our dinner party this year I chose the theme of “Villains” (previous years we’ve done famous dead people and the movies).
First our decor – I used all my usual decorations with a few easy (and inexpensive) additions both inspired from Pinterest (that didn’t fail as many Pinterest things do haha). I made a Halloween spooky village for a grand total of $13. The dollar store had their Christmas villages out – I picked up 13 pieces at a dollar each, spray painted them black and set them up with orange lights on the record player.
Onto the costumes! I searched all over for Maleficent horns that weren’t $100 (that still had decent reviews) – no such luck. I ordered one pair in August that were on back order up until the party (so I canceled the order). Then I was thinking Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest (wire hanger scene) but I couldn’t find the proper robe – I’m sort of a costume stickler (for myself anyway). So I went the easy route and dressed as Bonnie Parker (who may or may not be a villain depending on who you believe).
Lucas went as the doll from the movie “Saw” – and everyone agreed he was CREEPY. Do you want to play a game?
We also had 2 witches, 2 Cruella’s, 2 evil queens from Snow White (but one as the old hag and one as the queen), Minne and Rosemary’s devil baby, Johnny from Karate Kid, evil Dr. Sivana, a “cereal” killer, and the Governor from Walking Dead. Thank you Julie for the pics!
PS – if you want a good ab workout, play Cards Against Humanity. But keep tissues at hand because you’ll likely cry from laughing so hard.
Til next year!
