Get Out the Ropes and Handcuffs

Go in peace my daughter. And remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman.” Queen Hippolyte

Awwww…..Wonder Woman. That fabulous Amazon woman who taught us the way to success is through personal strength – not through a relationship with a man. Of course super powers are nice, too. Personally, I’d be happy with just some normal powers - like the power to match my Tupperware lids to their containers and to find my sock mates in the dryer.

Better than Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman battled injustice with intelligence and love. Gloria Steinem proudly put her on the cover of the first Ms. Magazine as a representation of brains, free spiritedness, and strength. But I also love her for her great sexual presence - both in body image and in costume design. I’m just not sure how she fought crime in those damn boots.

Actually, early issues of the Wonder Woman comic book repeatedly showed characters being tied up and spanked. Hmmmmm. Ya gotta’ love a woman who knows how to give a spanking!

The history of Wonder Woman is also a fabulous example for women’s parties. On Paradise Island (where she came from), women ruled for over 3,000 years. Their entertainment included games of dressing up as stags and running through the forest chasing each other.

So, I’m thinking that in honor of Wonder Woman - and Linda Carter, who taught us how to run strapless - a Wonder Woman party is definitely a girlfriends’ party worth having. Who doesn’t want to dress up as Wonder Woman? Seriously. Starry panties. A lasso of truth. Bullet deflecting bracelets. A boomerang tiara. An outfit for the party AND for fun and games with your significant other later at home!



Game Suggestions for your Wonder Woman party:

(1) Sock it to Me – Handcuff four guests so that their hands are behind their backs. Place a pile of six single socks in front of each one, only two of which that match. See who can find the match and fold/roll them together into a ball. First one to complete the task wins.
(2) If I Had the Power – Ask guests to write down on index cards two things they would do if they had the power to do it (one humorous and one serious). Mark each one with a different letter of the alphabet (A, B, C, etc) and lay them all out on a table. Then give each guest a piece of paper and ask them to match the letter with each guest. See who has the most correct answers.
(3) Toss the Tiara – Use tiaras instead of horseshoes to toss at a stake. Or use a wig head. Or a plastic penis.
