The Greek Invasion

How to look like a goddess for bingo socials

Bingo socials are the new form of entertainment, often for a cause and attended by the who’s who of society. Ever since it was found that games in fundraisers and charity functions appeal to people, rounds of bingo have been featured to lure a huge number of enthusiasts. Groups and non-profit organizations know that bingo socials are also relatively easy to put together. These events are also good avenues to express compassion—just recently, the Irving Moskowitz Foundation donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross in front of hundreds of bingo players at the Hawaiian Gardens Bingo Club.

Bingo socials are often formal events, which of course require formal ensembles. The Greek theme is making the rounds in the society pages of magazines, and having an Aphrodite vibe while playing bingo just might bring us luck. Here’s how to pull off the look of goddess Shu Horn in the latest Bingogodz advert:

The Dress
Glamorous toga dresses with empire waist and long shoulder drapes are the usual styles for this theme. To finish the look, accessorize with a gold headpiece and gold hoop earrings as well as bangles which will radiate as you mark the numbers on your bingo card.

The Shoes
Ancient Greek sandals on earth tones will go with light-colored outfits well. Harvey Nichols has Medea leather wedge sandals that fit the bill, and are flexible enough to be worn during the day at work or in the evening for bingo socials.

The Makeup
A typical Greek goddess has bronzed complexion, subtle lips, and dramatic eyes. To achieve this look, eHow gave us a few tips. For the eyes, wash eyelid with gold eye shadow, then contour with dark brown matte eye shadow. Then, line with black eyeliner and apply double mascara. Apply bronzer in light layers for a golden tint. For the lips, use burgundy or nude shades.
