We wanted to look the part so we found a place where you can RENT your costumes. That worked out great because when it comes to girls 20's era clothing, you can find the really slutty flapper get up for cheap or the really beautiful, fancy, dresses for like $700! I can NOT do hair styles at all so I got this really crazy blonde, crazy curly wig. Kevin shaved his chin, but kept his mustache and slicked his hair back. So that was fun.
When we got to the party we had to go to the side door and knock. When they opened the door we had to give them the hand signals they told us on the invitation. They had made homemade root beer and turned their den into a speak easy. The actual mystery part was pretty funny. Most of us had not done something like that before so we were constantly referring to our information cards and getting out of character when answering questions, but it was a great way to keep people actively involved at a party. Neither of us where the murderer :).
The birthday girl.
