You’re throwing a party — for you! Tell us all about the food, drink, events, and party favours you’ll have for your event of a lifetime. Use any theme you like — it’s *your* party!
Ironically I was only dreaming about this a few nights ago – and I dreamt that I was organising my birthday party – and the theme was Drag Superstar Realness. The reality is, I’ve been watching waaaay too much RuPaul’s Drag Race, and have become just a little bit obsessed with it. I guess it also doesn’t help when we get together with a couple of our friends and go out almost every weekend for the past few weeks to see some performers from RuPaul’s Drag Race (RPDR) perform at a gay club here in Melbourne.
But what makes it worse is that my friend (who is a girl) even wants to dress up as a drag queen as well and have us put on a show. hehehe.
All this talk of all things ‘drag’ has now got me thinking about it all the time. We were out on the weekend at a friends birthday celebrations, who turned to me and said that they wanted me to do a death drop (a move made famous from Voguing). However, knowing my luck, I’d attempt to do so and probably blow my knee or something equally horrible.
I’d like to have it at a venue with a thumping sound system… perhaps like a nightclub or something (depending on how many faaaabulous people are going to be in attendance)… or even a smaller function room etc… but then I’d have to hire some staging so I can create a small stage and a catwalk (naturally!) so that everybody is able to have a turn strutting their stuff in all their finery. I even thought about asking a couple of drag queens I know to come and perhaps do some make up for those who simply haven’t quite mastered the art of blending hehehe.
I hadn’t necessarily thought too much about the actual decor of the space, nor the menu. I almost feel obligated to have every possible type of Absolut vodka available for the bar – which is ironic that I’d even have a bar, seeing as how I would probably be the ONLY person at my party who doesn’t even drink. Regardless, having Absolut vodka would be rather gimmicky, but also kinda fun/ny. Or maybe I could utilise a separate space and have that as my very own ‘Interior Illusions Lounge’ hehehe.
In terms of party favours, I think it would also be something small and gimmicky… like giant plastic diamond rings, plastic diamond tiaras and over the top necklaces, makeup compacts full of glitter instead of foundation, stiletto keyrings – ooh, or keyrings with words like ‘Fierce’, ‘Bitch’, ‘Smize’, ‘Hunty’ etc etc
