Masquerade Birthday!

Good Morning!

As you may recall from last week, my friend Tory and I celebrated our birthdays together this past weekend with a masquerade themed birthday party.  I was going to post about the party yesterday, but after all the “festivities”, the last thing I wanted to do on Sunday was edit photos. Let’s be honest, I didn’t even move from my bed/couch until about 5 pm.  At 34, my body now needs about two to three days extra recovery time for a late night.  Sigh.  But it was worth it.

When you throw a theme party there is always some question as to whether people will participate.  We did have extra masks on hand, just in case people came empty handed, but we were really hoping that people would get into the theme.  And let me say, our friends didn’t disappoint.

The winner of the prize for best mask went to my friend Monisa (with me, bottom right), who rocked her first ever glue gun project and crafted up this plumage-y beauty using the feathers from 2 masks…..

There were many great masks, but here are a few of my favourites from the night:

1) Pete’s “I can colour a mask as well as any 2nd grader” pirate

2) Geoff’s slightly creepy long-beaked mask, a throwback to Eye’s Wide Shut

3) Steve’s “Life of Pi” tiger mask

4) Natalie’s ski mask

All in all a great success!  Tomorrow I’ll share a little on how Tory and I constructed our own masks.

Have a great day!
