F*** Prohibition, it's Josh Kane's Birthday

October 14, 2013

A birthday portrait I drew for Josh. Are portraits going to be the new birthday cakes? (Blog posts here and here) I think so. *hides*

Last Saturday evening Joshua Kane had a little birthday soiree at Ruski's to celebrate his 29th. As it was the last year of his twenties he thought it apt to make the party '20s themed, myself, I wasn't terribly bothered about the subtle nuances nor symbolism of it all, I was too distracted by the giant words flashing in front of my eyes---1920s themed party! Prohibition! The Great Jas-by Gatsy! Flappers! I love an excuse to dress up, unless of course I find out about the dress code the night before the party and then panic because the fashions of the theme (loose flowing dresses) are most unsuited to my body shape (extremely busty, not particularly slender). I did contemplate dressing for my shape as The Dowager Countess of Grantham circa 1920s England; all corset, crinoline, and firm disapproval at the wild fashions. Fortunately I managed to pull together a little something from my wardrobe, I only had to buy a new headband and heels for the occassion. 

Photos lovingly stolen from India.

The birthday boy and his likeness.

My night ended with a very tipsy me stumbling next door to an off-license and discovering it sold American candy, chocolates, and cereal...!



...and knocked out another Disney Princess Auditions video.

I woke up to discover that I had bitten my tongue in my sleep, had a cold, a receipt for £17 of American goodies, and a bag of Reese's puffs, white Reese's pieces, almond M&Ms, almond Snickers, and giant Reese's cups in my bed.

      He actually does dress like that ALL the time! And I've never seen him in anything but a bespoke suit. Josh is a full-time dandy ;)
