This past Saturday, I had a Nickmas celebration. For those who don’t know me in person, I take my birthday very seriously, and have dubbed it Nickmas. There are Nickmas celebrations throughout the month of October, but the official date of Nickmas is this coming Saturday, October 13th.
And for the record, I was born on Friday the 13th. And yes, it does explain a lot.
The theme for this particular celebration was “Suit Up!”, and it was an invitation for my friends to dress their best. Whether that was in white tie like me, as a superhero or even, in the case of two of my friends, in track suits.
I also set up a small area to serve as a photo booth and put out props for people to play with. Then my friend Amy and I came up with poses for people to try and put them on scraps of paper. Guests could then pull a pose out of the hat and do their best impression.
I’ll post several of the photos from the party here over the next few days, but here’s one of my favorites. “When in doubt, pinkies out!”
