Happy Birthday to the Curious Wren!

(Images found via Pinterest)

People! An exciting thing has happened! It happened yesterday, but I was late to it and didn’t read the post until today. :< But I’m here now. :3

Annie’s blog has turned one! :D Annie is a fun darling, so you should scamper to her blog and say hi. ^_^

So for her blog’s first birthday, Annie had a costume party! :3 Or a virtual one. People would come in the style of favorite book characters (their own or someone else’s), and enjoy the party through a few questions. B) It looked fun, so even though I’m a little late, I thought I’d join in. :3

Annie’s also doing a giveaway, so you should check that out too. B) There’re some pretty good prizes. ;)

The clock strikes. You see the front door of Curious Wren open and I stand on the threshold (smiling excitedly because PARTY + PEOPLE). You can just see over my shoulder into the hallway—there’s a ridiculous number of balloons, banners are strung all around, and twinkling lights twine up the railing of the spiral staircase at the end of the hall. I wave you on in and ask you to sign your name on the party attendance sheet. Who did you come as and why did you choose that character?
I’ve come as my character Hannah Pelton from Fence Jumpers. Because she’s an adorable big sister to Skyler, the MC, and she can have a lot of attitude and sass when she wants, so she’s sweet and nice and sassy all wrapped up in a cute blonde form. B)

Each guest gets their own slow-mo entrance into the Curious Wren domicile, accompanied by an epic main theme: what is yours?
I enter to “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction. Because it’s fun and I can dance my way into the party (even though it’s in slow-mo?) with Wes and we will make a statement of fun, of which I’ll probably be embarrassed about later. >///< Because it’s probably his idea in the first place. *eyeroll*

The front door shuts and a wonderful aroma of freshly-baked gingerbread wafts towards you from a three-step stairway on your right. You start to head in that direction and then remember that your shoes are still on: what are you wearing as your fabulous costume of the evening? Feel free to share pictures. (bonus question: did you bring a friend? Who?)
I’m in a super cute outfit with blue as the color scheme. :3 A flowery dress, bracelet, and a really pretty ring (although it’s best I don’t ask Wes how he got it…). My plus-one is Wes, who I suppose I call my boyfriend? He would say he is, but I like messing with his ego, so. B) He wears a clean pair of jeans and a dark blue button-up, with the sleeves rolled up just below his elbows.

But because my outfit is so much more interesting, here are pictures!

Up the stairs and into the main party room where other guests—resplendent in their own amazing costumes—are already milling about. There’s music and laughter and lots of Chinese lanterns hanging from the ceiling, and tables are piled high with trays of food that smells so delicious it should be outlawed—in fact, some of it isn’t even possible to find anywhere else on Earth—such as lembas bread. What are you going to decide to eat?
Ooh, so many choices… I’d probably go for the sweet things first. XD Cookies, cupcakes, candies. Anything not too messy.

From out-of-doors the Curious Wren domicile looks like the usual size of a two-story house; but as you begin to explore all the tiny side staircases and take note of the many unexpected windows and hidden doors, you realize that Curious Wren House might just be bigger on the inside… and that each room changes depending on how you want it to look. What room(s) do you choose to spend most of your time in? (feel free to share photos)
Oh boy… wherever there are a lot of people. :D Or rooms with board games, or dancing. B)

It’s getting later in the evening and in some parts of Curious Wren House the activity starts to slow down. What entertainment would your character chose to enliven the birthday party? (if fireworks destroy my house, you pay for the damage. ;)
A rousing game of Twister!!!! Or karaoke!

If your character was to get a call and you realize that you might have to leave the party abruptly, what would be a possible reason?
My little brother Skyler’s gotten himself into trouble, most likely. Or our Fence Jumper hideout’s been discovered.

I bring out the cake and the ice cream and chocolate chip cookies, and you remember just in time that you brought a hostess gift. What is it? (unless, of course, your chosen character has the memory span of Dory the fish and you forgot a gift entirely).
A box of salted caramel chocolates? :3 Something to relax with after having so many people in the house. ;)

It’s nearing on midnight and the time has come for everyone to take turns giving a grand farewell speech—still in character. What do you say? 
Speech? o.o I’m not sure what to say–

*Wes stands up* “It is with our deepest regrets that we leave you tonight, fair gents and ladies! But the hour of departure has come, and we must away to our humble tunnels filled with our dear friends and family. It has been a pleasure to meet you, as my lovely date will attest if you ask her – as she seems rather shy at present – and I do hope we might meet again! But for now, farewell!”

And those are the questions. :D Remember to hop on over to Annie’s blog and say hi and congrats! :D
