Event: United States of Ameri-Canada.

One of my best friends, April, is heading to Canada and the U.S. at the end of April (how poignant!), so what better theme to celebrate her joint going away and 25th birthday party than an Ameri-Canadian theme?

When April first mentioned it to me almost a year ago, I thought I might go as a Native American. Dedicated readers of The Early Bird Catches the Worm will know that I’ve already exhausted that costume. And dedicated friends of mine will know that I never repeat a costume. (Okay, that’s a lie: I went as Catwoman to my 11th birthday/Halloween party and broke the leather out again for last year’s festivities.)

Dedicated blog readers and friends alike will also know that I have a guilty penchant for professional wrestling, so what better event to break that costume out at? Canada is rich in professional wrestling history, what with the Hart family, and modern-day legends like Edge, Chris Jericho and Trish Stratus. (And let’s not forget that unfortunate Chris Benoit incident…) Not to mention the cultural institution of pro wrestling in the U.S.

Without further ado, check out the other Ameri-Candian costumes…

I slogged away over the stove for 20 minutes to make this packet mix cake, so she’d better appreciate it!

Rockabilly roller derby girl!

Feminists in arms, take 3!

The way of the future for feminists in arms. Sorry, April!

Who invited this lot?!

The two Gaga’s. With everything that’s come out of the U.S., you’d think they could be a bit more original! ;)

Put your hands up for Detroit!

Well, she is a gay icon!

Bye bye Miss American Pie…

The next major girl group to take the world by storm. Watch this space.

Well, I guess that’s what they would say in Quebec…

I’ll miss you!
