| It's coming, (Halloween that is) and the Portland, Oregon branch is
| looking for something NEW to do. For years, we have done a costume
| party where dancers are asked to come as their favorive dance, but we've
| done that theme to death (pun intended). What have some of you done?
| I'm sure there are a lot of fun activities that other branches have
| done. By the way, this is for a regular class night, but a fun night,
| or fright night, or whatever. So, suggestions please.

Another gimmick I've seen that can work quite well: a "Come As You
Aren't" party. Part of the party is judging the costumes; the winners
are those whose costumes are the largest mismatches with their own
personalities. A fellow who always wears jeans and a t-shirt might
wear a 3-piece pin-stripe suit. A person who always dressses in black
might come in plaid (Buchanan) pants and a Hawaiian shirt. A shy,
librarian-type woman might come in an Elvita outfit, and vice-versa. A
party-guy type might come as a Buddhist monk. "Mike Myers and the
Church Lady." You get the idea.

Encourage people to ask each other for suggestions (and clothes).

This isn't really specific to Halloween, of course; it works any time.
