Easy Themes That Could Be Fun For The Whole Family (yay!)

Proposed Themes For The Future

It may be beneficial to separate the more labor-intensive themes, with themes that require very little effort / money, but still turn heads and keep the pedestrians gawking. Kudos to people who can add to, or evaluate, the following list of simple (dumb) ideas:

Please, shoot your mouth off.


  • Adhesives and Headwear
  • 600 Messiahs
  • Fat People Peddling
  • Oops, I Forgot My Pants!
  • Charge of the Spatula Brigade
  • Charge of the BandAide Brigade
  • Bad Hair Daze
  • Shorts and Boots
  • Kung Fu Moovy (”And i’ll kill any malevolent cab driver who dare oppose me!!! …OR him!”)
  • Has anybody checked the toxicity of washable markers?
  • The Color Clash Bash (Alone, we are funky streetlights. Together, we are a bubblegum nightmare)
  • Christmas Carols (with practice session and lyric sheets? Wait until next June?)
  • Tin Foil Fasion Show (Exploit a dollar store near you! SLObispo now has 2 dollar stores. Beware of thunderstorms.)
  • UFO Cults (Everybody loves UFO cults! Needed: Swanky leader with bad imagination. Sharing beverages is not encouraged this night.)
  • Everybody DRESS Like Mayhem! (the Happening bike people are not liable for damage to hair)

    I’m always a believer in “simpler is better” and think you’re on the right track.

    My favs on your list:
    “Oops, I forgot my pants” WINNER!

    “Bad hair” and “Hair like Mayhem” could be subcatagories of a “HAIR” theme. Oh yea.

    Christmas Carols (in Dec. with KAZOOS) (start buying them now people)

    Oooo, I like “Tin Foil Fashion show” You think we might experience full-body-transmissions from outer-space?

    And finally a suggestion from Yardsale D: “Pots and Pans and Coffee Cans”
    (aka noise noise noise)

    -with KAZOOS!! BRILLIANT! That makes caroling worth doing in December, and it makes caroling a truly simple theme.

    Tom’s Toys has a selection of kazoos, last i checked. Higuera Street, past Broad, right-hand side.
