Last weekend The Studly Hubby threw a 'Windows 7 Release Party' (aka NERD party). Microsoft sent him a party pack full of games, decorations, party gifts, and a free copy of Windows 7 in exchange for the loose promise of inviting some people over and advertising Windows 7. We actually like Windows 7 and thought that was a neat idea so we hooked the computer up to the TV and showed it off like we were supposed to. We also made people dress up like their favorite Windows icon - below is a 'My Pictures' icon (who won second prize) and a 'Windows defendor' (who won first prize).
In the spirit of the party, we put up a 'Penalty Box' for crimes against Windows 7, but I was the only one that ended up in it all night.
The Studly Hubby bought himself a blue unitard for the party, which he was pretty excited about. He originally had a sign around his neck with his favorite logo, XAML (a Silverlight programming language), but the sign was unwieldy and was eventually left behind somewhere. Fortunately when one's costume includes a blue unitard it's interesting with or without the main feature.
Here we are with our full costumes. I was the MSN butterfly (the Studly Hubby's idea - I stole it) and he was XAML. The butterfly wings were also a bit unwieldy, and required some extra maintenance to keep the wings from drooping - but we made it work.
