More Party Ideas
It’s always fun to have a theme for a party. But at times some people won’t put in much effort to dress up - so it falls on the hosts to cover for that. An easy way to deal with guests who arrive out of costume is to have a range of costumes and accessories available and then require them to “go change” when they arrive.
Once people are in costume they’re usually more relaxed and willing to be playful in other ways. It can seem like a bother at the start but costume parties and masked balls are huge fun.
As I write this I’m contemplating an event that I will entertain at which has a Hawaiian theme. That is a good choice as it is fun and easy to do. I’ve purchased a genuine Hawaiian shirt for the occasion.
There are a number of hypnotic skits and gags that come to mind too, such as having some solidly built blokes doing Hawaiian dancing!
Masks are another good theme idea. You can simply hand people a mask at the door. There are many games that can be played using masks too. And hypnotising people to behave in character with their mask can be hilarious fun.
Everyone has sleepwear or can get some. This theme goes especially well with hypnotism. people can be as conservative or as racy with their costumes as they wish to be. Imagine your friends and colleagues all arriving in pyjamas and nighties and then Havinga comedy hypnotist show?
Perchance to Dream
Yeah, that’s from Hamlet - but what about A Midsummer Night’s Dream party? Shakespeare, fairies and enchantment. There’s ample material in that play for costumes, games and hypnotic gags and stunts. Not to mention the play itself is fun - perhaps on DVD?
As an excuse for any of these ideas you can make it a charity fundraiser. That way it is all in a good cause too!
