What Do I Wear to the Friday night “Let’s go Fly a Kite” Dance?
This is the question that people have been asking and I have some ideas that you can start crafting your outfit. We will be giving away prizes for best outfit or headpiece and for the best dance moves with our DJ Peter O’Desse “ENJOY THE MUSIC”.
Here are just a few ideas we have to dress up that favorite hat. My favorite pink Panama Jack hat can be decorated however you like. A tail can be easily attached to the back using colourful ribbon, rope or whatever you can find around the house to make tail or string for your kite. You are the kite. You don’t have to glue a kite to your hat but if you want to be really creative paper kites can be easily made and attached to your hat. In the picture I made little pink kite earings to accent my outfit. The tail for my hat is my pony tail that I might braid with some ribbons. I might even get a pony tail extension from the dollar store to make it long and beautiful.
Your favourite hat might be tied up with a beautiful silky scarf and ribbons tied to it as your tail. Make sure it’s colourful!
For the men, step outside the box like one Toastmaster who will be unravelling part of his turban down his back as the tail for his headpiece. Or maybe grab that party fedora and tie a colourful necktie around it and have it hanging down the back.
Spring is the opportunity to take out our spring and summer clothes with some colour to dress up in. My favourite happy colour is ‘PINK’ obviously. If you have an idea you would like to share with us feel free to go our D86 blog page and submit a blog post of your idea.
