I know, I know. This post is over a month late. I had intended on posting about it in a more timely fashion, but obviously I didn't. So last month I went to the most amazingly extravagant Halloween party in Palos Verdes Estates. This was my first time dressing up for halloween since I was a kid. I had a hard time picking a costume. I didn't want anything too silly or too sexy/slutty. I ended up being Padme and The Boy was Anakin. Have I mentioned before that The Boy is a huge Star Wars fan? HUGE. Anyways, costumes are expensive. I was shocked at how much they cost. Some costumes were $100 or more. It's not like these costumes are made of the best material or are very high quality.
Anyways, the party was INSANE. The theme was Killer Klowns from Outer Space. The house itself is 15,000 square feet. we got to go inside the house. Party goers weren't allowed to go inside, but we knew some of the vendors so we were given access to the house. It was such a beautiful house. They had 2 kitchens and a elevator. I think the house had at least 4 different levels. And the ceilings - the ceilings were painted with clouds and angels and things like that. The entrance to the party was a maze. There were circus performers, magicians, even a monkey! It was open bar with the good liqour too, not just the cheap stuff. There were passed hor's d'oeuvres that were really really really yummy such as truffle french fries in little martini glasses, scoops of cotton candy ice cream on served on little spoons, mini corn dogs, sliders, and basil mushroom crostinis. There were women "dressed" only in body paint dancing around. The guest list for the party was 3,000. 3,000 people in one house. Not even the house, the backyard. My backyard probably couldn't fit more than 30 people. It was said that the cost of the party was equivialent to the price of a house. I'm sure this party was well over $200,000. That's a huge amount of money - HUGE! Can you imagine having that much disposible income that you could afford to throw such extravagant parties? These people have some serious money. This is the third year they have thrown this party. I hope I get to go again next year!
