On Saturday we left T1 with the sitter and went downtown for a Booth event called Golden Gargoyles. TH is in a group called a “cohort” and each cohort made a film. The top films were screened, as well as clips taken from each one to fit certain categories, like best special effects or best unoriginal soundtrack. It was pretty funny, I got most of the jokes, though I wish they relied a bit less on off-color humor to get laughs. Oh well!
The theme was Heroes and Villians, and that was supposed to prompt the costumes that people wore. Lots of James Bonds and Jokers, one Joker in particular who was really freaky and really took on the Heath Ledger persona in Dark Knight. The guy dressed in black and white stripes (prison garb) under a suit coat with a name tag that said Bernie Madoff really made me laugh.
Can you guess what we are?
The housing bubble and a mortgage backed security. Ha! I think these are so clever. Some friends from church left us borrow TH’s costume stuff, including the shirt. Thanks friends! They get credit for the idea too.
TH fashioned my one shouldered bubble dress. These pictures were taken at the end of the night and so it looks a little torn up by it help up pretty well.
We drove with L and K (K risked his life to secure us a free parking spot we snagged, jumping out of our still moving car and freaking out the guy behind us who did not expect Elvis to come flying out and prevent him from stealing our spot).
Batwoman taking off for the night.
Thanks for the free date night Booth!
