August 4th happened to be a Saturday this year, and a perfect theme fell into my lap.
Of course, I took a few liberties. It basically became a Jeff Goldblum party with a few aliens. Here's this year's prize table. I added a small fondue set that wasn't taken last year after I took this, but nobody took it this year either!
Detail of the bigger framed art, the first prizes to be snatched up. My coworker who lives about a mile from here has two daughters who are obsessed with Jeff Goldblum right now.
I originally planned to completely cover our spinning lawn decor with Jeff and alien heads, but decided one row of flower petals on one was enough, mainly because I couldn't find the box of paper clips I bought to attach them with. That left a lot of extra heads, which came in handy when I noticed a bunch of cat claw marks on the wall below the bathroom window. You know how cats push away from the wall as they come down to make some room for their back legs? Yeah.
The lighting above the mirror got the same treatment.
Strangely enough, one of the Fly-in volunteers who came to the party knows a friend of mine from high school and college! I of course had to take a photo to send to her.
The inspirational message I left on both bathroom mirrors.
A poster I made with The Rasterbator for outside.
And finally, my outfit. I love putting together a terrible outfit to wear exactly once for a party. This year's was pretty expensive, so I'm sending this and a few other things to a friend who's a cosplayer and can make good use of it.
