Tara's Popstar Birthday Extravaganza!
If you couldn't tell, my family is PREEEEETTYY into dressing up. ie Dress-up Christmas Eve, Halloween, and of course, lets not forget all of the plays my cousin Tiana and I tortured our family members through as children. So it was not super surprising when I got the Facebook invite for Tara's birthday party and she wanted everyone to dress up like one of their favorite pop stars.
Cameron and I had recently watched this gem:
So I knew pretty quickly that I had to be Katy Perry. Those costumes and that blue wig was just too tempting to pass up.
I have to preface this post by also saying that Cameron is not so much into dressing up. But he is the best because he humors me and joins in even when it isn't his favorite. So at first we thought it would be funny for Cameron to be JT from his NSYNC days so he could frost his tips cause that would be really funny. But then I thought it would be great if he was John Mayer (a relatively simple and easy costume) since Katy Perry and John Mayer are together. He totally went for it.
Here's our debut as Katy and John:

+This was my costume inspiration:
So, obviously I wasn't going to show up to the party in a white bathing suit...so I improvised.
Didn't Hillary look so super sexy as Adele? Seriously, Loved this look on her. I did her makeup and hair. You can't really tell how big the top of her hair was in this picture, but it was pretty good.
Love me some Adele.
Tara's party was at her friend Dani's house. They even put up a Hollywood sign. Isn't that awesome?!
It was such an awesome old house. There was even a plaque out front that said this house is a Historic Landmark. It was awesome.
When you look up Tara's name in the Thesaurus here is what it looks like:
Tara: blonde, crossfit, silly, hilarious, karaoke, fictional plantation in the state of Georgia
So, there was this AWESOME setup for karaoke that her friend Rusty set up. 3 mics and almost any karaoke number you could think of...besides Katy Perry's California Girls, which was my jam of choice :(
Tara and her friends dressed up as the Spice Girls. I had to reeaaaaaaaaaaaaally suppress my jealousy at not being a part of this. The Spice Girls are my fav!
|Sporty, Baby (Tara-stop being so adorable), Ginger, Scary, Posh|
|Brother and Care were too cool for school as always and dressed up like John Lennon and Yoko Ono. They looked awesome, right?|
|Haha...I look like a transvestite and not Katy-Perryesque at all...but that's ok.|
|Isn't Tara's friend's costume of Meghan Trainor SOOOO awesome? It was one of my favs.|
Thanks for having us! We are sure grateful you were born, Teen!
