Did you go and watch the brand new X Men: Apocalypse movie last week? If yes, then it would be easy for you to admit that the 9th installment of the long-running mutant film series killed it again on screen with its brilliant connivance and direction. I bet you were more than delighted to see Hugh Jackman baring his claws for his fans as Wolverine. Viewers were also allowed a glimpse of the early lives of Jean Grey, Ororo Munroe aka Storm, Scott Summers and Nightcrawler. Besides that, fans also got to see Psylocke and the psychic mutant En Sabah Nur or Apocalypse for the first time. If you have not watched the movie, book your tickets as soon as possible. For those who have witnessed the thriller and can still feel the powers of Professor X and Magneto, we have got something for you. Have you got your birthday to celebrate this week? Even better! Here’s how can plan the party in X-Men style:
Set up a welcome sign resembling ‘Professor Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters’ at your door. Hang streamers around your room in red, yellow and navy blue colour. Get linens or tablecloths in similar shades and hang them as well.
Have a cake prepared based around X-Men theme for invitees. Decorate it using red, blue and yellow coloured icing. You can even top the confection with X-Men accessories or figures or make a logo. Bake cookies at home using an X-Men themed cookie cutter. If you want, you may even have cupcakes. Choose any flavour you like, but frost them in silver or yellow, and then line them up to form a big ‘X’.
To set the mood of the party, play an X-Men movie in the background so that everyone can watch it while eating their cakes and cookies. You can also arrange consoles for your guests to play X Men games on. Want to feel more like mutants? Your best bet would be face painting. Purchase some bright coloured face paints in advance and offer to paint faces of your guests to make them look like their favourite mutant. You may even ask them to come dressed as X-Men comic book characters. It will add more exuberance to the party.
I hope you will have a good time celebrating your birthday with an X-Men themed party. Stay in touch with my blog for more exciting ideas and information.
