Costume Party Feb. 15

As part of our 15th anniversary, we’ve decided to reinstate monthly costume parties in the chatroom. The first one will be held on Friday, February 15th. We usually choose a them for these parties, such as science fiction characters, or characters from a particular book…what would you like to see? Enter your suggestions below and we’ll choose our favorites for this or a future party.

UPDATE: We’ll be going back to basics for our next costume party, with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as our them. Look for some of your other ideas for upcoming parties! They were great.

    I would love to have more costume parties for particular chronicles of Narnia. I think we did this for one or two of the books, but even if we chose a book we’d done before it would be different every time. We could do Magician’s Nephew. There are lots of fun characters there πŸ™‚ from the Nose-proud She-elephant to the Jeweller that Jadis robbed. Mostly it would just be fun interacting with characters that we all know. Other themes that might be interesting could be mythology or Jane Austen/period drama though the latter might exclude some of our male members. We could also pick a century and have everyone be a real person from then or a character written then.

        Always Narnian, everyone basically comes into chat as a guest and changes their name to a character that is part of the theme for the party. For the Christmas costume party, I came as The Star of Bethlehem, because it was Christmas themed, but if we did a Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe themed party, I could come as Mr. Tumnus or someone.
        *hopes that made sense*

          What Tenny said. But I should also add that part of the costume party is that no one else is supposed to know who you are. You disguise yourself as the identity you pick. At the end of the party, we try to guess who everyone is and then reveal who we were, often to hilarious results.

          By the way, I remember the chatroom being very overwhelming the first time I went in there. You might want to visit a bit before the party so that you’ll feel comfortable.

    (I vote no Doctor Who or science fiction, since I know a few of us don’t know /anything/ about them)

    I’m good with Narnia or LotR or animals or pretty much anything else. πŸ˜€ I really liked Swan’s ideas.

    Since Narnia celebrates creatures of all kinds, what about unusual real-world animals?

    Or perhaps a literary party, with authors from all eras.

    I think it’d be great to have Lewis’ other works as a party theme. That’ll give us a nice variety of characters (and things) from the Space trilogy, Till We Have Faces, The Screwtape Letters, and so on.

    Do we know what time the party will be at? For clock-syncing purposes. πŸ™‚

      Just brainstorming now, so we have lots to choose from in the future.
      1) I have this CRAZY idea for a party theme. A lot of us here are writers; why not have a party where we are one of our own characters? It’d be a great opportunity for us writer-types to dive into our character’s personalities. As part of the party, you (as your character) can describe to everyone where you are from and what type of life you live. One problem with this idea is some people may not have an original character to be.

      2) Traditional fairytales! (Grimm’s, Anderson’s, and so on) That gives us character like Hansel and Grettel, Rapunzel, Rumplestiltskin, and lots of tailors. πŸ˜› And then there’s lots of magical objects that can do just about anything!
