She’s in parties

August 14, 2013

And oh my what a party it was! Last weekend I traveled to London to attend Jayne’s birthday party at Roadhouse in Covent Garden and it was great fun. Jayne had decided we should all be dressed in tv or film characters so we all went in fancy dress.

Jayne looked amazing in her Poison Ivy costume. No wonder she is a beauty blogger, she is great with make up! If you want to look at her page, she blogs at Jayne’s Kitschen.

We rode the train in our costumes and we got lots of attention (some of it unwanted, who needs dirty catcalls? Boo!)

We finally made it to the venue and some more people were waiting for us. The place is quite big, has a huge bar, a wide selection of cocktails (and a happy hour until 7:30) and a live band. I spent the night drinking Strawberry Daiquiris and it was good. The decoration is a mix of Americana (lots of neon signs from gas stations and the such) and varied motifs on the projections – some with pin ups and others like Kraftwerk above, having fun fun fun at the autobahn. It was lovely to meet some of Jayne’s friends and a few giggles and a bit of a dance was had by everyone.

This one was taken at the end of the night as I was feeling a little bit chilly. So, this is what I wore to the party. Mask, Asos skirt, black peter pan collared top and Dr Martens boots, all via Ebay, bag from Target. I was called Batgirl, Catwoman… but none of those guesses were right. Can you guess who my character was? See it after the jump!

If you guessed Enid from Ghost World you guessed it right! I love the film as well as the original comic by Daniel Clowes. If you’ve never watched I definitely recommend it.

    That sounds like it was a very good time. You and your friend look fantastic. I wouldn’t have known who you were but by the looks of the photo, you nailed it! It’s been ages since I’ve been to a costume party. Now I’m itching to attend one.
