How do these post always start off? Ok, here goes:
Last night me and my crew hosted - insert event here:
A Mardi Gras Masqerade Ball with a steampunk theme.
It was so much - insert adjective here:
The attendance was - insert disappointing number here:
I have no idea where everyone was last night. Many of our event usuals and local steampunk enthusiasts were missing. Most of the people who bought tickets in advance and contest winners didn't even show up.
My best guess is because:
1. There was a Mardi Gras parade earlier that day so people were probably pooped from that.
2. We hosted the event at a new and rather unfamiliar location.
3. Mardi Gras is still pretty new to our town.
4. Mari Gras + Steampunk = mind boggling concept to the average person.
So really, it turned out to be like a little mixer with a little dancing.
Ugh, I've thrown spontaneous HOUSE parties where more than 20 people came.
MY $5 MARDI GRAS STEAMPUNK COSTUME:
As usual I didn't buy anything for this costume except for the green top hat I revamped.

Bustin' a move!
Drinking my first Hurricane after a loooong night of socializing and goofery.
(The Hurricane is kind of the official mixed drink of Mardi Gras)
So yeah, that's it.
Time to go blog stalk! So you all next week!!
