It was for my 31st birthday. Basically, I saw a guy wearing a t-shirt with an Indian man on an elephant running along with a cowboy on horseback and said to myself, that's it! I had video screens playing clips from old westerns and dance scenes from Bollywood films. I never had birthday parties growing up really so am making up for it with my long awaited cowboys and Indians party now. I had a TON of fun!
Unfortunately, I didn't even think to take pictures until the very last second, so they aren't highest quality. I am currently planning my party for this year. I'll have better pictures this go round. It is gonna be ridiculous!
Cowboy hats and sheriff badges. Stick on bendi.
What People Ate
My baker friend always bakes themed cookies for my present. There were cowprint sugar cookies, hummus with lavash cut into elephant shapes, I think tandoori chicken, I forget. It's been a year.
It is like pulling teeth to get people to dress up for these things. I have noticed that people are dressing up more and more though. I was probably the best dressed. I had three outfits throughout the evening. This year people have already started planning their outfits. If you offer a prize, people seem to try harder I've learned.
