Neil and Liane as Alice and Alice (Photo Courtesy of Liane Butler)
When my friend Liane and her husband Neil were invited to a Wacky Alice in Wonderland-Themed 40th Birthday Party, they took the term Wacky as seriously as possible. Not only did Neil go full drag as an extremely authentic blonde-haired Alice, but Liane took her look even further, recreating the classic Shock Rocker eye makeup of Alice Cooper. Seriously, that is just genius. Genius!
Although they are obviously having a great time at the party, notice how Liane stays in character. What dedication!
Liane is also the mother of adorable, two year-old identical twin boys! Welcome to her nightmare!
Here they are again at the party! It looks like fun! Alcohol!
Today Liane also posted a photo of the cake on FaceBook! Amazing!
The original band called Alice Cooper released its sixth studio album, Billion Dollar Babies, on this date, February 25th, in 1973. Billion Dollar Babies, which went to the Number One position on every chart, is a very special album for me. Favorite Song: “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
Here I am on one of Alice Cooper Drummer Neal Smith’s drum kits. All of Neal’s Gold and Platinum Albums earned for sales of Alice Cooper band records are on the walls behind me. Billion Dollar Babies is in there, somewhere.
It seems like a gazillion of my FaceBook friends are having a Birthday today – it’s crazy! One of those friends is my great pal Randy, who knows more about cool music than any person I’ve met on the planet so far. Randy! Anyway, Randy posted this photo of a Sex Pistols Birthday Cake on his Facebook Wall and it looked so cool I was moved to conduct a little search to find the original picture, which is of the cake from the 40th Birthday celebration of a guy named Paul King (see image source link above) back in May of 2008! History! If it is your birthday today, I hope it is awesome, and that you have a cake at least as cool as the one that inspired this post!
