After the Fasching parade the previous weekend, it was time last Saturday for our traditional Carnival party. You may have seen the photo preview yesterday and recognized Slash – this year with the real hat unlike two years ago! – and Madonna in her Desperately Seeking Susan days. Admittedly our selfies are not as nearly impressive as the one taken by Bradley Cooper and Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscars yesterday; they are also unlikely to break a new record on Twitter, but I find them amusing all the same. 😉
The theme this year was Berühmt und Berüchtigt. In other words: Famous and Infamous. Most people ditched the infamous part but there was a fair share of Al Capones around, the majority of them bizarrely sporting the gangster’s name around the brim of their hats. I also spotted Bonnie and Clyde and a group of four went down the music path too, fabulously dressed up as KISS. Two young women did a good job portraying Audrey Hepburn in her role as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Marilyn Monroe stood not far from us.
This was my fourth Faschingsparty and I must say that my singing along to the traditional German Carnival songs is fast improving, to the tremendous amusement of Sexy Hubby. My greatest achievement however was to sing the ENTIRE Like A Prayer song together with Madonna!
