Are you the "all in" party type or the low key type?

I'm dressing up for this party. Neon tights. Big hair. I even bought some extra hold hair spray (I never use hair spray) for the occasion. I can't decide if I'm being super cool or am just a big dork!

Shy, I love theme-parties! Have actually been to both 70s and 80s party and had so much fun!!!! The 80s party was during my student days. Everything was superfun with the music, our make-up and clothing - and a classmate I actually did not recognize before a few hours had passed! :smileyhappy:

The choir had a 70s party a few years ago and I had borrowed my Mum´s old platform shoes from 1971 and her sunglasses, as well as a blonde wig á la Farrah Fawcett and an absolutely horrible dress from a friend of mine. People did not understand who I was at first, hehehe. I am a brunette, so I guess the wig really worked.

Back in college we had a "bad taste" day which must have been the funniest school day ever! I have a class photo of us and it is hilarious! And that was just us, so many hidious (and therefore hysterically funny) costumes, hairdos and make-up among the other classes as well. Ah, good times. :smileyhappy:

Hope you had loads of fun!!!!

It was a blast! The night went way too quickly, and that doesn't happen very often.

There could have been a snag at one point. My Very Bad Decision, also known as Damn Hot Guy, was there. He made eye contact with me once, but never came to talk to me fortunately. He was also talking to one of the girls who was with me when she went to get a drink, but I think he figured out it was a lost cause when she came back to my table. He left after an hour or so.

I am the low key type for parties usually, but I do love the 80's.
