Welcome to the jungle...

...is a Guns'n'Roses tune off their album Appetite for Destruction. Why am I telling you this? One of my friends recently turned 27, and to celebrate her birthday she decided to have an 80s dress-up karaoke party at this crazy-awesome karaoke bar we know (Dreamland) where drinks, a Chinese buffet and karaoke can be enjoyed for the sweet sweet price of $30. I decided to take inspiration from Axl Rose, front man for Guns'n'Roses....minus the bandana. Can't be mussing up the hair you know ;)

It was a crazy affair, with everyone turning up in the best 80s outfits. There was the aerobics chick, the neon colours outfit, the ridiculous moustache and mullet wig, the 80s rockstar (complete with shoulder padded leather jacket and hi-tops), an American werewolf in London and a few more crazy outfits.

We took some crazy pics which I look forward to seeing. I only took a few pics myself.

The most embarassing thing about my outfit was the fact that the only thing I had to purchase specially for the party was the aviator sunglasses. Heh.



The rest of the weekend was spent shopping for birthday presents and cake and generally chilling out. Perfect. I also contemplated distressing the skinny jeans in these pics, but was too lazy to actually deliver.

I want to be back in 1989, somehow the thought of appreciating then as it deserves :)

All the pics are great, all you need is an mp3 of any singing on the night, sweet child of mine.
