What's up everyone, not sure if this is too early or what, I like to lurk on the forum and I have decided it is time to start shopping for/making costumes, at least in my opinion it is.

We know where we are going, we know our entertainment, let's talk costumes and theme nights.

I liked the idea for Heaven/Hell people were pushing for last year.
I love the Soul Train idea.
I am sure the Zebra will be decked out with Zebras again.

I'll be with Santa Clause once again and this year we are bringing a few gifts.

I'd say Soul Train and Zebra are given. Somebody usually starts a thread (like you already did) to
get concensus on the unofficial theme nights.
There will probably be 2-3 official theme nights also but they get announced later in the fall.

so on the new JC home page it say's "Jam Cruise goes to eleven", there's got to be a way to do a Spinal Tap tie in. HaHa the Moose already does at least one Spinal Tap song,"Big Bottoms". Late night in the Zebra would be perfect for a set of Tap as we Tap into JamCruise.

if there is two official themes + one color + soul train + zebra, then thats the whole cruise. Assuming one of the official ones is not soul train (which it should)

I wish I was creative enough to throw some other ideas into the mix but Heaven/Hell and Soul Train sound like real winners to me.

So...if we have a color theme night, I vote for teal. Thoughts?

random thoughts...

I haven't been able to come up with a single color that has as many possible interpretations for execution as green does/did (although there might be something to aqua).

I like the idea of Heaven on the ship, I could probably do without Hell though. :P

Since we are all going to hell anyway.. wouldn't it be "come as you are?"

Touch of Class will have costume prom on the first night regardless of official or unofficial theme nights.

Does anyone want to take the reigns and list all the costume nights we have had? Yes, it is a challenge and I throw the gauntlet.

@ Tai, its not how many you can come with, you just need to come up w/ 1, leave it to each person to find there take in the color

i feel each color can be done, be it blue[cool, aqua, teal], red[hell, sexy], or purple, the list can go on and on. the idea behind a "color" night, i think is that it is a way to easliy unite many costume ideas, even ideas that you haven't thought of yet{as shown by the great takes on green, no way could i have come up w/ so many great costumes], making it easy to come up w/ something.

believe it or not, we have some friends that don't really costume alot[crazy i know] but they put green on and loved it!

you see sometimes i'm lazy & don't feel to creative, and no matter how hard i try, i can't come up with an easier theme then "1 color"

but in the end, no matter what i wear, i will be in a costume of some type atleast once each day, sometimes 3x's!

I just want to avoid everyone wearing yellow t-shirts (for example). I will certainly bling out regardless =D

love the hell comment Krys, I still intend to dodge that one by living forever =P If no one steps up to your challenge by next week, I'll give it a shot. I assume you want the unofficial ones too in order to make it worthwhile? :)

i feel "going green" was the most successful theme night JC has done.
i feel it was cause of the ease of "1 color"
i feel that just like the way cruisers took to "green", they will take to "whatever" color
i feel that no matter what color, there will be some basic tee's of that color,,,,,,but this is why this theme is so great, cause the person that puts on a matching color tee, most likely would've had on just another tee, but now atleast they are in on the theme,,,,ye feel me?
