Shag-gy LARP @ 02:11 pm


I'm just taking the opportunity to spread the word about Limbo Lounge, a live role-playing game set in a swinging afterlife reminiscent of the artwork of SHAG. For those of you who aren't into role-playing games, I guarantee this will be a fun one to come to. It will be like a costume party with gambling, tiki drinks and more tiki drinks.
The game's being run by Kirsten, aaronjv's better half. It'll be Saturday, August 13, and possibly held at least partially at our house.

britgeekgrrl: feel free to pass the info along to respectable southern California LARPers of your acquaintance. Or Northern Cal ones who enjoy the I-5.

Tiki drinks

Tiki drinks generally involve some combination of rum, pineapple juice and/or coconut milk.

Last time I made tiki drinks was my cauldron of zombies:

1 bottle of amber rum
1 bottle of dark rum
1 bottle of light rum
1/2 bottle of apricot brandy
a reasonable amount of pineapple juice
a fair amount of orange juice
a wee amount of fresh-squeezed lime juice
a wee amount of grenadine

Serve with a float of Bacardi 151, and garnish with green cherry, red cherry and pineapple wedge.

Of course, that was also the night I wound up unconscious and covered in vomit.

Re: Tiki drinks

Ah, good times, good times.

Nigel would have pointed out that, although it wasn't his vomit, "you can't dust for vomit."

Such a stellar evening.

There's some SHAG Live stage thing. I thought it was cool @ first, but his work is waaaay more awesome than stupid actors.

Yeah, I was briefly intrigued by the play, too, but I only go to the theater once per century and I think I'll save it for something better in the future.

Hmm, so I guess I misunderstood from her email.

Is the dress style 70s then? I read it and thought that the angels would be dressed up in suits and ties with a halo above their heads. Hmm...70s style...interesting.

Well, the dress style is a la Shag, which means it can range from squares in suits to mod to beatnik to hippie to disco to Hawaiian shirts to Shriner outfits with a fez.

Actually, I think she just wants style. Dress cool. Act cool. Be cool.

That's why this has to be an imagination exercise for Enigma.

I'd actually be much, much happier if you avoid anything to do with the 70s. SHAG is the moniker of the artist in question, not a description of the carpet. There are no earth tones in SHAG.

Otherwise, what Aaron said. Look sharp! I encourage people to write their characters to go with their outfits. Anyone in a T-shirt gets thrown to the demons.

(And, regarding the pointy boobs, look for granny bras - many of them provide the nice torpedo line, since it was, after all, in style when all the grannies were young....) -K-

I already e'd Kirsten and told her I'm looking for an excuse to break out the Modesty Blaise outfit again. I'm also currently looking for some cute, matching little horns to go with it.

Back to those crunches....
