The Murder Mystery Party

So we were invited to a Murder Mystery Party. There were eight couples invited to dinner for Ruby Tuesday. But when we got to the party, we found out that she was murdered and we had to figure out who did it. We were all suspects because she had ruined our lives in some way. Spencer was playing the part of Peter Paul (as in Peter, Paul, and Mary, who wrote "Puff the Magic Dragon"). His character, from what we could see from on-line photos, was a conservative sixties dresser with a goatee. So we bought Spencer some glasses and shoes at Goodwill and he colored on the facial hair. Nice.

This is the only picture that I remembered to take of myself. My character was Jalopy Joplin (as in Janice Joplin). From what I could discern from pictures, she was a extreme hippie with a smoking addiction. I bought some ugly glasses and pants, and this ugly blouse at Goodwill.
I wore no make-up and didn't do my hair.
Throughout the evening we were given clues to who the real murderer was. Supposedly, Ruby Tuesday stole my boyfriend and my career. I totally thought I was the murderer and I voted for myself at the close of the night. But it turned out the murderer was Trixie Dickie Nixon, a character running for U.S. President. Ruby ruined his campaign.

Here are some more suspects that came to the party in costume.

Thank you MK and Ryan for hosting such a fun party!

Wow, what a fun crew. I think Spencer looks pretty good with the Goatee - Someone put a lot of work into the party and it really sounded like a lot of fun. If we don't see you before Raena's wedding, then have a safe move and keep posting updates on here. I love reading them.

That sounds like so much fun. Clarke and I went to a party like that when we were at BYU, but I think it was a PG 13 version because we were all having affairs with everyone- a little awkward. I would love to host a g version party
