Parrrrrty Pics  
I'm not sure who might be interested in this, but behind yon cut be pictures of the Pirate Party at Enchanted Devas.

The party had everything. A live band, a live bagpipe player (who serenaded us with "Iron Man"), free hot dogs, free beer, free wine, vegetables and dips, chips, salsa... but the real draw was the people. The people were...varied.

This is our host, krystalemerges. I kept this pic largish because there's just so much cool damn detail to her outfit.

Jack Sparrow showed up! This is the actual "Jack" who thudpucker, robyngoodfellow and I met on Hollywood Blvd. in May. Here's thudpucker and him...

...and here's a shot of me with him.

Another Jack showed up later, complete with Jar o' Dirt. Both outfits were spectacular. Martin thought they ought to have a "Jack Off." *groan* Personally, I found the first gentleman (Michael??) was better, I noticed a lot more Absurd Hand Gestures. The first Jack also seemed to have put a lot of effort toward getting the voice down, it was very impressive.

I mentioned we had a lot of variety at the party. Firstly, there were the Raver Goth Pirates...

...later, this lovely young lady took her time to step out of Pleasantville to join us. Apparently they have no free beer in Pleasantville.

The King of Siam showed up, with an Anna getting an outfit upgrade later.

Here's more of a broad overview of the party. There were also punker-looking people, as well as a guy who I swear looked like he belonged in Metallica. And our little LASFS scifi-geek group was there as well.

Here's a lovely little Geisha in Training, playing with a Japanese fan that Tadao brought.

(Tadao! If you see this! I need a link for you! Surely you have something online for business purposes?)

Dr. Arizona and Tadao showed up together, which was good because Dr. Arizona was quite fond of the "free wine" concept.

Here's a shot of Dr. Arizona and me.

This is a shot of "Scarlett" and John. He had no idea why I wanted him to pose with her. I think the reason is apparent just from the shot.

Sadly the frouf got in the way of the lovely period weapon this crackerjack was weilding, but it's still a great outfit and a great pose.

Comments? Questions? Pieces of Eight?

Did Jack get fresh again? Hee!

That is soooooooo much cooler than my Pirate party.

Krystal is now a professional pirate party thrower (it's actually in her job description) so there's no shame in having less of a piratey party. And "Jack" _was_ semi-fresh, actually! I was flattered!

I thought I had posted pictures relatively recently, but it's neither here nor there....

Well, I DID have a lapsed conection to the internet there for a month plus, so who really knows?

First time I've seen you grinning that much without looking embarassed, though; you look like you were having Barrels o' Fun...
(In fact, you look a little manic/disturbed - or maybe it's just where jack's plastic sword was going...)

I think the 'you+DrAz' pic was about 3 seconds before the "mennonite" line that she schnarfed her wine due to...

Maybe. Still a great time ^_^

Notice there are no live action videos??
postrophe on September 24th, 2006 08:27 pm (UTC)
MARvelous time! (Wish Krystal had heard it, to laugh as hard as you two did...)

So why no vid?
Fritters: Cat Goes Pbtht by iconfetishfritters on September 25th, 2006 02:39 am (UTC)
No vid because I only have one video and I like being on Dr. Arizona's good side.

Lovely! :D

Scarlet's outfit...sure is Scarlet. Who is she?

I want a Jack Sparrow. After Halloween, will there be any spare ones in the bargain bin?
Fritters: POTC - Drink Up Jack by 1con1con_fritters on September 23rd, 2006 10:06 pm (UTC)
I don't know anything about Scarlet really, but I have a hunch she might be the redhead/lady in red from the Pirates ride. Regardless, she had charisma dripping off of her.

I'm hoping there may be a few spare Jacks after halloween. I should trap one in the spare room until you get down here.

"Scarlet" was indeed the Scarlet Harlot from the PotC ride; she did endless research with official and unofficial photos and videos, disney 'cast member' consultations and costumer and fabric maven debates, till she had it dead on down to the neck ribbon with/without ornament...
In fact, I think you can find her thru Krystal's myspace page, under 'Scarlet Harlot'...
(She told us about on her first ride at tender single-digit age, announcing to her brimstone-thundering bible-preacher father "I wanna grow up to be Her!")
Fritters: Pirate Kitty by Frittersfritters on September 25th, 2006 02:38 am (UTC)
Ugh, it's SO hard to find out anything from myspace pages, they're sooooooooooo disorganized =P I'd love to know more though, so I may slog through the garbage in the hopes of such.

Arr it look to be a great parrtee.

Glad you had a blast
Fritters: Ed Stars by Frittersfritters on September 24th, 2006 06:18 am (UTC)
I did, actually, even with the not-partaking-of-free-wine part.
krystalemerges on September 25th, 2006 01:03 am (UTC)
What awesomely Piratical Pictures...I have snagged them all (hope you don't mind) for PR purposes...

I am happy that you had such a good time, as you are right, putting on piratical parties is indeed in my job description. I have decided that 1 pirate holiday a year is not nearly enough, do look for the upcoming Pirate Memorial day, a pirate equivilent to Cinco De Mayo, and others to be determined soon...PIRATE PARTIES are my LIFE...

Hope to see you soon, I have a new friend that I am told YOU MUST meet...
Fritters: POTC - Drink Up Jack by 1con1con_fritters on September 25th, 2006 03:03 am (UTC)
I'm flattered you found them worth snagging. The lighting was not it's most ut and I'm not a real photographer! I like the photos on the postcard thingy from the party on your myspace, I snagged that actually.

Why must I meet this person?

And we always enjoy parties so hearing there will be more is cheering. ^_^

krystalemerges on September 26th, 2006 01:49 pm (UTC)
Glad you snagged the montage, that was done for us by Tiger Lee (who also produced the Hot Pirate Babe calendar that we have available in the store)

and my 'friend' is not necessarily a 'person' so to speak...hope to see you soon, I did pull out the dress we spoke about, will you be at LASFS on Thursday? I know that your schedule is going to revolve around your new venture.
Frittersfritters on September 26th, 2006 06:14 pm (UTC)
Is your friend small and furry or incorporeal?

And I should be there Thursday, we've missed the last two weeks. Honestly, we didn't go last week because between you and Richard, John and Dr. Arizona and Tadao and Tepper, we saw most of the people we go to the club for anyways!
