One of our friends had his 21st recently. Since he is an enormous movie buff it was a dress-up party: “retro TV/movie characters or actors”. I was so plagued by indecision that I almost didn’t want to go, and having left it until that day to finalise a costume, the options were not too grand.
I went to a couple of op-shops and there were some cute dresses and coats that might have turned into something good for me, but not really for hubby. I found some good cartoon characters, but I didn’t have the right coloured clothes.
We ended up not really going as anyone, although I wore jeans and a singlet top and called myself Faith the Vampire Slayer… not retro enough for some, I’m sure.
Now that the party is over I know that there were a lot more options than I realised. So, here are some for future reference. Not all are boy/girl matches, but you could go as a single character or girls can dress up as boys… or vice versa!
