I'm thinking of having a World Famous Fashion Icon and Busy Mom Michelle Obama™ party. Guests must come as a representation of something easily recognizable as MO. I'm looking more for her essence rather than a full costume so it should be a fairly easy thing to pull off.
Guests could select from this list of defining elements:
- a child's sweater, worn with only one middle button closed
- half of a ping pong ball with an iris drawn onto it
- angry eyebrows
- a big pin
- a big belt
- big shoes
- a garden trowel and a handful of arugula
- a dog leash
Even the menfolk could easily do well with this theme. Just cut off the sleeves of an old shirt and show those guns. Bang! Or if you're feeling festive, swath yourself in toilet paper as homage to her memorable but ghastly inauguration gown.
The jewelry should be easy. Short of visiting a flea market and/or dumpster and picking the 3 most hideous plastic items and wearing them all bunched together, any giant paper flower, Xmas garland, ropes, chains and metallic spray paint will do.
I guess I'm not the only one who's had this idea. If you do a search for "lady clown shoes", such a thing exists but they are sold out everywhere. I guess I could use these clown sneakers and add green sparkles to the toecaps and write "LANVIN" across the heel with a magic marker. Maybe add a dangling price tag with $540.00 written on it.
Wahdayah think, Bingley? A MO-themed Barbeque on July 11th?
