This weekend I attended my first “Murder Mystery Party”. My second really, but this was the first one I got to be in, instead of just observing. These parties are so much fun! It was designed for exactly 8 people and my character was Connika Gothika; a millionaire, writer and goth. The rest of the characters included a maid, chef, lawyer, lawyer in training, southern belle, alcoholic musician and a Vegas tart. Everyone got into their roles and not a single person guessed the correct murderer.
It was this guy!
Our hostess with the mostess served us appetizers, sandwiches and an amazing homemade cake which I am still absolutely stuffed from.
I believe they said the game costs somewhere between $40 to $50, needs exactly eight people and unfortunately can only be played with once . There is only one scenario and no alternative endings or murderer. It was a blast to play and a great group of people.
As I mentioned, my character was a goth woman and I wore the black dress, have the long black hair and thought I had put a TON of eye makeup on. After seeing after photo’s I realize my makeup looks like a typical woman’s every day makeup. Now I did have red lipstick on, but I must have ate it with the cake, as there is nothing left of it when I took this photo lol. I think I like this makeup look. Maybe it should be my everyday look. I don’t know if I can handle having that much mascara on my eyelashes, I was sitting here rubbing my eyes and smudging it and noticed I was trying to peel it off while writing this. Maybe I should have gone to the party like that! A much more convincing goth! Anyway, I had to get up and wash my face off and now I feel a little more human again. I did kind of like the way that looked. Maybe I’ll be a makeup lover yet.
I hope everyone got a chance to get out and enjoy this beautiful weekend. I hope it’s as beautiful where you are as it is here in Kitchener on this sunny beautiful day.
