Murder at the 4 Deuces 18th May...

Postby sammy » May 22nd, 2007, 7:37 am

Well the excitement started at searching for the perfect murder mystery to host for our friend and it was clear that the 4 Deuces was perfect! Even though we were a bunch of girl dancing students (well plus 2 boyfriends) the party was amazing. Choosing characters was so much fun, some just fit our friends perfect while others would be hilarious to see act the part!

Being students we had little money but lots of imagination and planning the party was just as fun as the actual thing, we spent every minute at home creating costumes, painting pictures, creating a stage for carrie crooner (out of some random pieces of decking we found in our basement) and generally being excited. Decorations were slowly added to our house every night of the week previous to the party as we couldn’t contain our excitement till the actual day. Our front room soon had silver table cloths cut up as mirrors all around the room, several empty wine bottles had candles in to set the atmosphere, the stage was laid, our imagination put into overdrive as we pretended ‘alfroy the piano man’ (a picture of a man playing piano!) was playing the music which was stuck over the tv screen. And the rest of the silver table cloth was cut up into music notes and stuck to the wall! (working with a budget!)

The casino was amazing, we bought green felt table cloth to place on our dining table creating a poker table, the most amazing serviettes ever found (with playing cards all over them) were stuck on the walls, more silver table cloth cut into card suits (recycling huh?!) , and an old dusty cupboard was cleared out and our (unfortunately empty) alcohol bottles were placed in there creating our beer bar (with the hope our guests would bring full bottles of alcohol!) we even had casino sound effects on repeat for the whole night!

The brothel… ohhhh the brothel was the most fun, draggin out our spare room matress onto the landing and covering with hot pink sheets, fluffy cushions, and our underwear! Setting the mood with purple tube lights behind the bed and a sexy red ’lips’ light at the other end, adding our sexy pictures we’d painted and a few sexy corsets and baby doll underwear hung around and our brothel was ready to go!

So the house was ready, we were all set in our either newly made costumes or things thrown together from our wardrobes and the party commenced! Everyone looked amazing, the girls playing guys looked better than any real males would and got into role straight away who needs men!? The party in full swing and big Jim and his pretend stuffed belly (which won him best costume!) fell to the ground. Shock shock horror horror, the excitement to find the weapons was absolutely hilarious everyone dying for me to say go so they could go on the hunt! Unfortunately one weapon could not be found as our next door neighbours hid the weapons - one in a shoe which we tidied up just before the guests arrived and put in our locked room! Whoops! But apart from that everything else ran smoothly! Donna wannabe died, she was getting a little cheeky! Some dirty deals were done and some extra rumours were added including that sly sleaze was gay! Fun was had by all and we can’t wait to do another one but being students it will take a while to save up for the next! Thanks so much for creating it we couldn’t have chose a better one to play! We’ve decided to keep most of our budget decorations up as we’ve grown quite fond of them!

It is amazing what you can do on a limited budget! You girls did great. I have had a lot of all girl groups do Four Deuces and have a ball, so I was happy to actually see photos of one.

I had to remove your last photo and caption as it was a spoiler & we do not allow those. They upset people who want to play themselves and feel that knowing the killer will ruin there party. It won't, but it is nicer not knowing and having that to do.

yea thats absolutely fine... i thought that might happen! glad u liked our photos we enjoyed it so much... being on a tight budget makes u come up with so many different ideas that u probly wouldnt think of if u just bought everythin, its much more satisfying to create things out of nothin! and it was hilarious seein some of the girls dressed up as guys in my opinion it made it even better!
