But neither Matt or I was the killer.
Rebecca was Scarlett Ohlahlah, a saloon dancer.
Dave was General Custard, the leader of the calvary unit at Fort Dodgy. Here he is preparing his remarks.
I was supposed to be Jane Calamity, the private detective hired to solve the murder (aka...the hostess) but one of the characters got sick at the last minute so I had to take over her role as the saloon owner. If I would have known, I would have dressed the part. Oh well!
Dave was Juan Eye, the Mexican cowboy. He was hilarious! He talked in a Mexican accent the whole night and kept saying the funniest things.
Danny was the Deputy Sherriff. I loved his mustache...it was fantastic.
Anne was Yellow Flower, a local Indian. Here she is doing a rain dance. The best part was that this costume was her 2nd grade Halloween costume!
Jay was Ace Lender, the town banker.
And Caron was Marie McCousin, a local rancher. Here she is serenading Tom. (Selleck, that is.)
Stacey was Blaise F. Glory, a bounty hunter. She brought this cap gun and scared everyone when she shot it off.
We had a great Western dinner of chili and cornbread. I even made Wanted posters with everyone's pictures on them as decorations.
And the killer was....the cheating, lying banker.
Next year I will be sure to not have the party the day before I move so I can spend a little more time preparing. I've already had a request to make it a masquerade murder mystery so that should be interesting.
It was way fun though and I loved everyone's costumes and how much they got into it!
