Well, I've been to a few, and they are hilarious, lol!!! A couple weeks ago, my co-worker decided to plan one for her husband, who was turning 50, so my husband and I decided to go! (seriously, I really didn't think he would dress up, ha-ha). There are shops all around town, that cater to vintage and 70' themed parties, so we decided to rent our "get-ups" from a place called "Color Explosion". The visit to the store is so nostalgic, the clothing is a mixture of disco and seventies. There, you can rent the entire outfit which includes, wig, shoes, cane, cape (lol) and accessories! Now, originally I was given a blonde fro, but it was Florida Evans size, ("Good Times") and I wasn't feeling baby fro, so I called up Mom!
Me: Mama, they gave me a baby afro,
Mom: They gave you what?
Me: Florida Evans size, I think it's too little..... Mama, do u happen to
have any afro wigs laying round somewhere?
Mom: lol, What color you need baby?
Me: (screaming) Dat's my mama!!!
(That's me fist in the air, lol)
My dh is pretty easy going, so I knew he would come, but I felt there was no way he would participate by dressing according to theme. Boy, did he surprise me not only did he dress-up accordingly, lol, he even wore a wig and gold boots to match mine, lmao!!
There was actually a dress that matched my dh's outfit, but someone else rented it that night!
There were disco balls, soul train lines and scramble boards, lol. We had a blast. A few had their decades confused, but it still was all good, lol. I always wanted to be on Soul Train.......
I kno it's pic heavy, and off topic, but we had a ball! Thought I'd share.
