If you have done one before, you know that you are supposed to dress up as a character. And these characters were entertaining.
Work and life and my calling at church has been really busy, so of course I procrastinated making or getting a costume. Well... Thursday I went to the store and found the least expensive fabric that I could find that was appropriate for our characters. ($2 for 5 yards!) I brought it home with the intention of getting started before I had to leave to help with our young women activity that night, but my sewing machine decided to go on the fritz. I panicked a little and then called up my mom and borrowed her machine after the activity ended at 9PM. I got home tired... and sewed like mad! I got Dee's done that night and most of mine. I ended up redoing part of mine the hour before the party of Friday. So here is how they turned out. Two costumes about 4 dollars each.
I played Rotunda Immaculata a Vestal who protects the eternal flame of Rome.
Dee played Bogus Fortunata, a Roman priest/fortune teller.
Here are the other players:
Cesar (Danny), Cleptopatra (Nicole)
Mercedes Accelerati (Shanna), Maximus Testosterous (Ben)
Herangus Adnosium (Dad), Flotilla Submergia (Mom)
