Since I got the job in Japan, I’ve been planning my going away party. It’s on Sept. 21, which is about two weeks before I leave.
I wanted to have a themed party (mostly because I’ve never done one) and because I really wanted everyone to get into the spirit.
So, I went with a superhero and villains theme! I’m really excited because I’m planning on doing the party in two sections: a more family-friendly party from 2 – 7 p.m. with more stuff for kids and maybe a pinata. And then from 7 – 2 a.m. it’s going to be more for the ‘adults’ with Superhero Olympics (with prizes!), Superhero pong and a bunch of other stuff.
I’m still trying to come up with some other fun ideas. I’m thinking of having a photo booth, but I want to DIY it instead of renting one. I’m also thinking of doing a ‘wish’ lantern after the sun sets but I’m not sure since those can get pricey. As the party gets closer I’m sure I’ll figure things out. I’ve got a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to my party already.
I’ve already decided who I’m going to be as well. At first I wanted to be Iron man, but after some heckling from my roommate, I decided to go with a female. I’ve always wanted to do Rogue, and I already have the white hairspray. I definitely don’t want to do the body suit (NOT flattering at all, haha!) so I’m going to wear green skinny jeans and buy some yellow boots and a brown jacket. I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do for a shirt yet. I figure I can probably by an X-men belt buckle and a patch for the jacket. I’m super excited!
I’m shooting for something along the lines of this… Hopefully I can come up with something just as cool as this. 🙂
