The work night was a good laugh. We got plenty of feedback on our outfits (although one guy did ask why we had come as sperm) and fortunately the venue had no problem with 9 people entering their place with machine guns, although they did have a problem with one of us running around wearing all the balloons they'd "acquired" from the dinner tables.
Unfortunately the live band didn't have the skills to play Intergalactic, preferring to hide behind trumpets and microphones than bust some verbal skills on da mic! However this did not stop us from having backspin battles and trying to do the running man in our wellington boots.
Some of our group didn't have the courage to stay in their outfits for too long changing into their black tie, others left to go to other events, still in their costumes. Myself and few others decided to stick it out and wear the outfits all night.
I think it's fair to say we had a good time!
