How to Make a Toga!
Debauchery @ The Orpheum
This Friday, wear your toga to the Orpheum Theatre in honor of the movie for the night, ANIMAL HOUSE. The Winner of the Best Toga Contest will receive 2 tickets to see Eddie Vedder's sold out show at the Theatre the next night. The Best Toga will be determined by audience reaction. If you want to wear your toga and not compete for Best Toga, that's fine too. The movie starts at 7:15 but the contest is before. Be sure to get there by 7.
First of all, you can always wear a sheet, but that amount of effort may not be enough to guarantee you win those tickets. Unless of course, you bring 10 friends and tell them to scream their loudest for you.
You could go to a cloth store like Hancock Fabrics or Hobby Lobby and grab some cheap cloth with a cool design.Or you could go with your classic white. Get four yards of cloth at standard 5 or so feet in width.
Here are the basics, according to howtomakeatoga.info,
The toga cloth is basically long and narrow
(Which is why sheets don't work well)
Pin one end of it to your waist
Wrap it around you at least once
Should hang to about the knees
Pin it at the waist again, on the right or left side
Throw the rest over one shoulder
Around the back
Pin it at the waist again
Wear gym shorts underneath, or whatever you want
Sandals, if possible
