I have to let you guys know, the 1950s-theme party I helped plan worked out SO GREAT! It was definitely one of the best parties I've ever been to IN MY LIFE. I believe I was dancing to Backstreet's Back, wearing my 50s outfit and surrounded by men in cardigans and bowties and sensible slacks & women in 50s dresses and this one drag queen in a poodle skirt - while projected against the walls were 1950s sex-ed films featuring animated drawings of the female reproductive system.
|The party was basically like this, but with neon stripper poles and drag queens.|
Also, the lighting was darker. And I was there. They played the WHOLE GREASE SOUNDTRACK!
