Ed’s birthday party

On Friday, my neighbors Janet and Ed threw a party for Ed’s birthday at Sole Repair in Capitol Hill. They always know how to throw a good party :-) It was an absolute blast. The theme was “Xenophilia = love of the strange”. It was so great to see all the different colors and how creative people can be. Oh… and we danced!!! :-)

I went there with my good friend Jon who created his own costume. He came as a hero: “The Tape Man” :-) He literally tapped himself using lots of tape and newspapers (apparently it took him hours :-). It was soooo funny to see. He was even asked to use his “powers” in the street where he tapped a girl, hands and mouth (I missed the photo opportunity there :-( It was absolutely hilarious :-) I was there as a Wizard but got really hot so I removed the beard and then the entire costume.

There was a photo-booth at Sole Repair, which automatically showed the photos on a large screen and uploaded them on Usnaps.com. There are many amazing, fun, creative photos (675 of them). The guys arranged for us to get access to them. Thanks!!! Here are few characteristic ones.
