Continuing with my weekend recap, my friends and I went to an 80’s prom on Friday night. I took the day off work so I could get some things done. I headed to Erin’s that afternoon to finish getting ready. We went to the salon she uses, and they did our hair. It came out so amazing! The stylists joked they wanted us to leave from the back door so nobody knows who did our hair. HAHA! They got a kick out of the fact I brought my own crimping iron. Erin’s hair came out amazing, I couldn’t look at her without laughing (that’s a good thing).
We got there before the rest of my friends so we went around and took some photo ops. To my great surprise and delight, there was a giant R2D2 there. We were one of the first people to see it, so I got my picture taken with it. A guy made it mostly out of duct tape and cardboard. But it was very elaborate, it lights up and moves! There was a girl in an R2D2 dress (I have the same one so I geeked out on her). She even did her makeup and nails in an R2 design. Turns out, she jams herself inside R2 to make it move around. The guy that built it, also made himself a C3PO costume out of duct tape. It was seriously awesome and I’m still pissed they didn’t win any prizes. THEY WERE ROBBED!
Once Jamie, Emily, and other friends arrived, we danced like it was on sale for $19.99. There was a special guest of a Michael Jackson impersonator from Vegas. The MJ impersonator was amazing, and totally redeemed the fact C + C Music Factory was disappointing. Erin and I want to see his show when we go to Vegas in the fall. Thankfully the DJ was good and accommodated most of our music requests. For some reason, he fought my friend on her selection of Invincible by Pat Benatar. He said he it wasn’t “danceable”. That was a load of crap, lots of people danced to it.
The prom was seriously awesome! I can’t wait to go next year. We went back before midnight, so we didn’t go to a club we were invited to by a group of people we made friends with. Erin and I had to spend the night washing massive amounts of hairspray from our skulls before our hair permanently stays crimped and curled!
