Christy asked what we were planning on doing, so here you go. There are 6 of us in the dorm. I was in the same dorm as one of the other ladies in Boston 2 years ago.
Name: Scrappin' with Fire or Rescue Scrappers
Song: Parody of Our House
Centerpiece: House (one of those kids cardboard deals) that is scrappified. Inside will be dry ice so that the house in "on fire". Barbie outside having just saved her scrapbooks. Also firetruck outside house.
Costume: White t-shirt, balck pants, suspenders made from ribbons, boots that we've decorated with scrap supplies, helmets. On helmets will be "chief" shields and we will each be the chief of something, ie Chief of Primas, Chief of Chatterbox, etc.
Nametag: Our name done in flames, with a mini firehose putting water out on it.
None of these are completely set in stone yet, but all are ideas we've been tossing around. Will also have a cardboard cutout of a fireman that people can have pic taken with.
And in my searching for cheap rubber boots, I found these. I love them. I think we probably won't be using them a) because not everyone wants pink (couchmelcough) and b) they are not available online and none of us live in the South. However, if there's an Academy Sports near you, I'm a size 10. :)
