What does it take to be “The Life of the Party”?
Are you sick of being a wall flower but can’t seem to get the enthusiasm or confidance together to step forward and make a statement? Do you find that your imagination is more flamboyant than you express in reality? People don’t seem to understand how colourful you really are, but to be fair, you won’t even show them!
[box type=”info”]Agent Costume can custom make or hire you an outfit for your next fancy dress party, film shoot, or event[/box]
Agent Costume can help you get noticed and feel confidant doing it.
There are subtle ways and extravagant ways of dressing to theme. We can help you to find the balance you are most comfortable with.
Experience for yourself the way a well selected outfit can encourage confidence and inspire the right kind of attention and conversation. Who knows, you too may end up being “The life of the Party” after all, one party can never be too full of life! And remember, it doesn’t need to turn into a competition. Insisting on being the “winner” makes others “losers” by default … is that how you want to make other people feel? Who wants to hang around with somebody like that at a party? If your ego is running away with you, remind yourself, “we are all winners here.”
Fill your party with life and send your guests to “Agent Costume” for a complete costume overhaul or enhancement. Full costumes or accessory packages available to hire.
Now remember, being the life of the party doesn’t mean being arrogant or over confidant, nobody needs to be trying to be impressive. Your poise, style and natural elegance should say enough. Smile. Give of yourself, acknowledge other guests, say hello and encourage other people to step out of themselves. Have others feel welcome in your company. Accept and appreciate what a wonderful person you are, and then you can get to appreciating others. Find something to enjoy in other people. Ask them questions, learn something new.
Dressing up at home or with friends can sometimes be the most exciting part of the night! That moment leaving the house, waiting for a taxi in the street, or stepping into the party can be the most frightening moments of the night. “What if I’m the only one dressed up?” “What if everyone looks stylish and I just look silly?” “what if no one gets me?” well guess what, it’s too late! Ha! You’ve made your choices, you’ve done your research, you’ve consulted with the host, and now, you must step into that room, and face the music, what ever that may be. Just remember, it was always all in the name of fun, own it. Carry it, make it awesome.
And if you are still feeling scared, then, for heavens sake, get your mind off yourself! It’s not about you! It’s about your host, and everybody else. You are an agent of fun, and you are doing your duty, bringing colour and light to a beautiful event, and if you can be comfortable with yourself, then people will be inspired by that.
Remember, everybody else is probably worried about themselves too.
Step out of your own head, stop thinking about yourself and pay attention to someone else.
This works every time!
Start with “Hi! What’s your name?” and follow with “That’s a great outfit!” or “How do you know the host?”
All of a sudden, a conversation is going and your mind is off yourself.
Show some interest in other people and you’ll hear some unexpected stories. You may even discover some unexpected friendships.
If the music starts up and you are worried about your dancing, then plan ahead and get yourself a ten class pass from Dance Central in Surry Hills. Learn to get your groove on in cool, co-ordinated funky style.
There you have it.
Stop telling yourself that other people wont find you interesting. Show some interest in other people and just see what comes of that. Some people may seem like they are really not interested in you. Either they are scared, or just simply rude. Don’t worry, you don’t have to keep talking to them.
Sooner or later you’ll start finding some real gems who really resonate with you, and life will feel great again, and the party will be one of the best that you remember.
And, you will have learnt a lot to take with you to your next party.
