We had some trying moments with car troubles, but once those were taken care of everything was easy breezy. And one of the best parts of the Saturday was going out to Second Saturday Artwalk, seeing a friend's new business downtown, having a drink with Matt at The Golden Bear and goofing off, and best yet...going to a party with one of the best themes I've ever been to: "Pigtails & Mustaches".
Now usually Matt doesn't like to dress up. Me....well I'll make a little bit of a fool of myself. I don't mind. I know I'm a complete nerd.
So doing these pigtails:
But that just wasn't enough. So I got to scheming. How can I make myself a mustache without spending money and without having to glue hairy itchy things to my face...I've done it before. It's hard for me to handle for very long.
So I went up and looked around my crafty room...and good thing I hold on to too much crap, cuz I had everything I needed right in the house! Problem solved, no $ and it really only took about 10 minutes.
SO, I made a mustache for both me and my boy (he doesn't grow his real facial hair October-ish).
And so we have one:
These are made with thin model building scraps of wood and sticks that I had from a model I build senior year of college, some black craft paint, a glue gun, and in the monocle's case, a medium gauge jewelry threading wire in a gold tone. Easy as pie.
Here is the finished look of min, BOTH pigtails & mustache:
He is simply dashing, isn't he?
haha! Good times!! And here are a few other people's cheap and easy solutions...
And a little bro & sis photo-op (Lorraine & Matt)
Moral of the story: 10 minutes, scrap supplies & any excuse to act foolish with friends = good times!
I highly recommend this simple little project and party theme!
