Work of Art Birthday

 For the 27th celebration of my birth day,
I decided to throw a "Come as your favorite Work of Art" themed party :)

If you're not familiar with my tradition of having
a themed party every year please check out this post to get yourself educated :P

And now for the costumes my amazing friends came up with...

 Octavio and Cassandra as...
Puck and Titania!

 My darling sister Jessica as...
 A Mucha inspired goddess! (if you look closely you can
see that her tattoo is actually of the middle woman featured above) 

                                                            Jhayne (on the right) came as...
a piece of poetry!

"It's no use/Mother dear..."
by Sappho

It’s no use
Mother dear, I
can’t finish my
You may
blame Aphrodite
soft as she is
she has almost
killed me with
love for that boy

Shev on the left came as quotes from a bunch of her favorite songs.
And Wai - Lee came as...
 Snow White!

My friend Sean (featured here with his darling girlfriend Courtney) came as...
A Mark Rothko painting! (Which I thought was a very ingenious use of a sweater ;) )

Megan came as...
 A sheet of music!

My darling old room mate Terri,
also came as a piece of poetry that she loved!

Sarah came as....
A Banksy original!

 Crazy Erik went over board again and came as...
Rodin's "The Gates Of Hell" by melting little army figures 
to a mask which he painted and glued to his face!

Ryan came as a character from Edward Hopper's classic diner scene
"Nighthawks" (and even brought Popeye's cigarettes and a coffee mug with him!).

And his lovely girlfriend Azalea came as the main character of this short film.

 And of course, my partner Nate and I, were...
Klimts "The Kiss"! 
Which I got to see the original in Vienna last fall!

It was quite the amazing start to my 27th year on this earth.
And as you can tell,
I've got some pretty amazing friends to share it with ;)

I'd also like to thank this man 

For graciously allowing me to have my party at his house
and be the photographer of these amazing photos!
Thank you tenfold, Greg!

- Love Britt
