Party Post Mortem

The neighbors didn't complain so I guess we weren't too noisy last night, which is good considering the party ended up mostly outdoors. I'm also stunned I didn't freeze to death...though I think this is the first year in a long while (if ever) that I've gotten out of costume before the end of the night.

And I continue to be amused that the guys, who all overheat easily, were in trenchcoats and scarves and other costumes that would be way too warm inside, and half the ladies, who mostly get cold easily, had costumes that required halter tops and other general lack of fabric. One of these years we should all do something that requires coats...of course that will be begging for unseasonably warm weather that year. :D

I was pleased with the dress overall, even if I should have been a popsicle. After a year of hyping it, I think it worked. There was tape in strategic locations and I had at least part of my mind on not moving the wrong way the whole night, but it was worth it.

And Gwen gave me some good tips on what to do if I redid it to remove a couple of the tape points (which will be very useful regardless of whether I redo the red or whether I do a very similar design in green, which I'm tempted to do).

We also had some other rocking costumes...Poe's "Hellgirl" looked amazing and would totally be worth a run at BayCon. The Lorrior still looks amazing as Catwoman and her boy pulled an awesome Ash (complete with chainsaw) out of his closet. Lairian and Leiland showed off continued amazing skill with sewing projects in matching Bleach outfits. Snoopy put all the fun details into the Tom Baker version of The Doctor. Even the last second pulled together stuff was lots of fun...Vash, a whole unscripted medical team from Umbrella Corp complete with hazmat cleanup, corporate assassin, Tyler Durdin....it was a nice variety.

And GritPhilm indulged us by recording all of it...or maybe we indulged him by letting him shoot his camera off all night. Once there are pics available, I will post, but he gets all the time he needs to do post production. Least we can do for working him like a dog.

But of course, best of all was the non-costume related bits. One new engagement and one slightly more official engagement....definitely an evening of happy news. :)

There were a couple rocky bits, but there always are. And I probably didn't spend as much time with a few folks as I could have, but that's also pretty par for the course. Overall though, I think it was a pretty good night.
