This is our loving vision of putting costume themes on steroids! 1776 is now totally costume-based. (Sexy!) Yes, we still have gag reenactments, history, roaming celebrations, debates, nostalgic music and movies too.
I hope this site shows everyone how dedicated the '76ers are to this project. The themes are SO strong at our camp. It really will be an other worldly dream! Far from a yuppie camp; we always need more costume snobs. Organize the Chaos; organize the sex; organize the bling; organize the love. Theme baby, theme.
My idea is to have camps where we all dress up as:
colonialists and redcoats on monday
indians and cavalry on tuesday
civil war soldiers on wednesday
WWII soldiers, Nazis, and Japs on thursay
Communists and nukes on friday
and terrorists and oil execs on saturday
We can show cool movies for each days era too, have funny ballots on really old fashioned political agendas, have humorous political debates on subjects that people don't even remember today, and themed food for each era.
There is so much to work with here... I know there are history people out there who would love to reenact all sorts of bogus stuff.
