Yes, that’s right… 2 unicorns died in the making of this evening. BUT I can totally explain, I promise.
MCQP is just one of those events where I don’t really have to explain too much cause the photos do the talking. And with this year’s Fairytale Fantasy theme, I was desperately trying to keep up with my camera, cause the outfits were absolutely brilliant.
I went as Pocahontas (my first outfit which was a slutty mini mouse fell through aaargggh) and got my outfit from Justagirl.co.za. My friend Darryn hooked us up with his lovely friend, Ash Barber, (the lady who put together our 5Gum Terror Island Experience zombie looks) to create a really awesome Cheshire cat:
I had to laugh at his hair paint bottle though. It says it makes you “Temporarily Beautiful” Hehe. What happens at midnight? Do you turm into a pumpkin or something?
The venue for MCQP this year was the Green Point Stadium. They also used it a few years back for their Flower Power party and I must say it makes for the best venue ever. It’s big and there are lots of rooms and areas which can easily be transformed into different bars and dance floors. I mean this year they had an 80s dance floor, a trance dance floor, the big main house dance floor, a cabaret marquee and a live band stage, just to name a few.
So before we get into all the outfits, here’s a few venue shots to set the scene:
Ooh and then hitting the bar was actually quite a pleasure, cause all the barmen were in their undies! Yeah baby…
Take your time boys… take your time…
Right, onto the outfits. From kings & queens, to fairies & monsters, Smurfs, white rabbits and everything in between. The whole fairytale spectrum was covered. Sit back & relax and check this out:
Just for clarity: Siv was BEE Santa who’s clearly been hitting the gym and Angel was Religion. Very higher grade for MCQP.
Wait, let’s just pause a few seconds to ponder this sign… hmmmm…
OK then. Good to know.
And then shake our heads at Pocahontas’ very bad behaviour. Sies man!
Right, back to the outfits:
Victoria was a total champ. She stayed on those roller skates all night long. (And she already has a broken wrist from a skateboarding accident – respect)
On the left there – we found another Cheshire cat!
So… onto the story of the unicors then. Unicorn #1 I stole from the 80s dance floor decorations. I loved her soooooo much and decided to call her Betty:
BFFs for life… or so I thought…
We had sooooo much fun together…
Too much fun it seemed… cause Betty ended up like this:
I was very upset. I loved her too much! And she just couldn’t handle it. Luckily I spotted another Betty and the universe gave me a 2nd chance.
The term “50% love” then became the catchphrase for the evening. Everyime I’d would get too excited, someone would say “remember, tone it down to only 50% love”… and more fun was had…
But in the end, Betty # 2 suffered the same fate as Betty # 1. CLEARLY I’m not responsible enough to own a unicorn people.
2 down & I figured I better quit before they’re all extinct…
Even though I was incredibly sad about the Betties. This was an evening for the record books for sure. Let’s do it all again next year, OK?
