After a four year stint at University and a long history of mingling in circles filled with ‘Drama kids’, local Betoota girl Steph Henry understands the science behind navigating a costume party.
Standing in the backyard of a University share house in Betoota’s French Quarter this evening, it’s believed Steph has arrived prepared and adequately dressed to participate in tonight’s “Noughties” themed house warming event.
After spending a week scouring Pinterest and deep diving through several nostalgia fuelled mid-90’s appreciation pages on Instagram, Steph has decided to arrive wearing the classic tried and tested non-committal outfit, turning up in tapestry of double denim, in a lazy tribute to Brittany Spears’ 2001 appearance at the American Music Awards.
Making her way past the beer pong table, on route to the communal sangria, it’s reported Steph’s night has taken an unfortunate turn, as she finds herself filling up her cup next to some weirdo dressed as ‘The Joker’.
After a brief conversation and unenthusiastically shaking the man’s pale, clammy hands, it’s believed Steph’s legged it as far away as possible from ‘Jarrod’, who’s vacant stare and uncomforting stance gave her a very real case of the goosebumps.
And not the good kind.
“Eughh, what does this always happen?” Steph quizzed our reporter from the safety of the share house kitchen.
“Every costume party you go to, there’s always some greasy hair creeper who shows up in a purple trench coat trying to impersonate Heath Ledger!”
“I get it’s a classic character and all but don’t these slimy boys realise that it’s the ultimate sign of creepiness to lick your lips all night and ask poor people like me “Why so serious?”.
“Now I’m gonna have to wait until my boyfriend shows up as my double denim Justin before I can head back out there, that guy seriously gives me the heebie jeebies…”
More to come.
