I'm the filthiest person alive, and it's my birthday. Help me plan a party themed around the films of
I love John Waters, especially the earlier and more fucked up films with the original Dreamlanders, and The Trash Trilogy. I have bad taste and frequently do my eye makeup up to my eyebrows. This is going to be the best party ever.
Here's my basic plan so far; please feel free to add any additional suggestions.
BASIC OVERVIEW OF LIMITATIONS:
-20-30 people will probably come over the course of night
-I live in a shoebox
-My broke ass generally budgets $60-$100 on food&booze for my parties
-Half the attendees will think this is the best idea ever, the other half will be like "Is that the dude who directed Serial Mom?"
-dog shit cookies (chocolate cookies with a turdlike swirl of chocolate ganache on top, maybe 2 sunflower seeds poked in to look like a fly)
-pink flamingo cupcakes (just pink cupcakes, basically)
-deviled eggs with a little sign saying they belong to Edie the Egg Lady
-I thought about chicken to tie in with Crackers the chicken-fucker but I really think it would be really expensive for a joke no one would get; same even more so for lobster for the giant lobster that rapes Divine in Multiple Maniacs
-I have no idea what sort of themed drinks to serve and so unless anyone has a brilliant idea it's probably going to be bourbon and PBR like normal
-I have a copy of Divine's wanted poster from Pink Flamingos I'm going to photocopy and post about
-I need a party supply store in Chicago
proper that is likely to have: pink flamingos (real or paper cutouts), maybe some sort of giant lobster cutout, and rubber rats
-I have all the old school movies, they'll be silently playing while the (awesome!) soundtracks from his films play
-On the back of my flyer I wrote "DRESS CODE: pencil mustaches, crossdressing, 1950s greasers/drapes, 1950s squares, drag queen makeup, bouffants & beehives, filth, trash, fake tits, 1960s hair-hoppers, perversion, sickness, and deviance."
-I was going to attack people with an eyebrow pencil to draw on mustaches until I got drunk enough that it'd be easy to fight me off
-I am going to have the biggest rattiest Divine hair EVER and more glittery eyeshadow than a thousand drag queens
