On murder mysteries and other such tomfoolery...

Saturday night I participated in a youth group event known as "Clue Night." It is a yearly event with our group where the leaders dress up as characters-suspects! (originally all characters from the board game clue, but over the years we have kind of turned into our own strange mix of characters. And we like it.)- and are questioned by all the youth about whether or not they committed the murder. Who was murdered? Well...obviously 1 or more inflatable alligators! Like, what else would you murder!?

 I am not going to try and bother explaining this absolutely ridiculous event/game night to you, as it is really one of those "you have to be there"- type experiences, but I am going to post the pictures. They are genuinely amusing, I promise, and you know how I am about costumes. I think any time I get to dress up is a great time!

The dead owners of LeGator Mansion (which normally looks a lot like a church). Named...I forgot. They were twins. One was Alliwishous (or however that is spelled...).

Now, brace yourself for a vast amount of High School Senior/College-aged people in BIZARRE (and I mean BIZARRE) costumes. And if you are wondering how it makes sense to have all these people employed at a mansion, IT DOESN'T. We have no reason other than we think it is more fun that dressing as Colonel Mustard...

 First off (sorry, I cannot remember everyone's names) we have a Librarian (Kaeleen), 2 ditsy girls with false high-pitched voices and fake giggles (Hannah and Elissa), and a chick in combat attire (Sarah Louise).

Then we have a ever-silent mime (Oliver) and his sister/ my best friend.

 The wonderful, beautiful, crazy, Emikel SWEENELLA TODD (yes, as in Sweeney. She is a real life cosmetology student, so why wouldn't she want to play a demon barber?!). Would you LOOK at those false, synthetic-fiber dusters she has afixed to her eyes! Amazing!
 Yup. She crazy. But I love her (and for the record, she is drinking mountain dew code red out of a plastic party glass. It is a mansion after all...).
 We decided that her look would be more complete with black lips. And it was!
Yup. She is hawt like wasabi! Even as a demonic barber (ps: she was the murderess. She planned the killing of those 2 alligators and hired 2 real, live twin boys in the youth group to do it! Wicked, wicked girl!)

 Next we have the evil clown, a la The Dark Knight,  Mr. Puce (Tony). If he doesn't give you nightmares, nothing will. Creepiest thing I've ever experienced. Ugh, I hate clowns.

 The butler with very moussed hair, Jeeves (Nathan)

The lovely (and totally ditsy) Ms. Pink (Elissa)

 Several peculiar gentleman, including Jeeves- previously stated as the butler (and Nathan), Mr. Green- blind private eye (James), Sgt. Pepper- Beatles fan and ukulele player (Hedge), Monsieur Le Blanc- crazy french chef (Caleb), and Lawrence Oliver- failed actor (Matt).

Camilla Camouflage and Mr Green (in leprechaun pants...)

Sweenella the demon barberess/Emikel, Ms.Shofranka Kinga Bela Scarlet the mysterious gypsy/me, and Camilla Camoflauge, expert at yelling at people/Sarah Louise. I love these girls.

Overall, a fun night. 2 flat alligators, many youth/detectives, a bunch of weirdos as suspects, lots of soda and munchies, good times, and at the end one murderess (...deflation causing person...) caught!

Just to clear things up: Hannah was Ms. Peacock. We had to have some of traditional characters of course.

Also, am I the only one disturbed by the fact that Emily's character was way too close to the truth?
