wow, thanks for the replies everyone! these are such great suggestions. i'm thinking about doing all the decorations you guys were talking about, having the movies and music, playing some games, and making everyone dress up. and i'll have
to use that box idea, thequeenjane. of course, the ugly clothes will go in there for those people who just didn't want to play along. and i really like that idea of record art, ericalm! what i'll do is make invitations suggesting things they should wear/do and make a note saying best costume wins a prize. i mean, who doesnt want to win a prize? anyway, thanks again!
ps - i guess we'll have to keep it on the downlow that it's not a straightedge party, kerriedaway...since i'm only turning 18 and all. hehe
