The end is nigh! On Wednesday, Jan. 29, the third season of “American Horror Story: Coven” will close its doors with its 13th and final episode -- “The Seven Wonders.” The ending will be bittersweet for viewers who are not ready to bid adieu to the witches at Miss Robichaux’s Academy … however, we’ve got a couple of tips for throwing an EPIC season finale viewing party for “American Horror Story.”
1. The Dress Code
“On Wednesday’s we wear black.” Take Fiona’s advice to heart and make sure that the guests at your viewing party are dressed for the part. No need to get all dolled up like Madison or Fiona, but request that your attendee’s don the color of the Coven.
Want to dress like your favorite “Coven” character? Check out a couple of options below:
Zoe: You can purchase this “Sleek Cutout Maxi Dress” from Forever 21 for $24.80. Complete your outfit with black boots and a wide-brimmed hat.
Madison: Seduce the Franken-Kyle in your life with this “Stolen Nights Slip Dress” from Nasty Gal for $38. Pair with black studded stilettos to bring your outfit to life.
Nan: Channel Nan’s good girl image with Nasty Gal’s “UNIF Charlotte Dress” for $129.
Queenie: Go casual like Queenie with a black “Essential V-Neck TEE” from Victoria’s Secret Pink. Finish your outfit with black jeans and black and white converse.
Fiona: Pay homage to the “dead” Supreme in this “Labworks Women’s Ponte Peplum Dress” from Target. Don’t forget your black umbrella and heels.
Spalding: Honor Spalding’s memory with this “Factory Chambray Bow Tie” from J. Crew Factory.
Kyle: Let your inner Franken-Kyle out with this “Arizona Varsity Jacket” at JCPenney for $38.99.
Misty Day: Your inner swamp witch will shine in this “Sweet Lady Maxi” dress from Free People.
Myrtle Snow: Crimp your hair and rock this stylish “Lindy Bop Women’s ‘Concetta’ Vintage 1950’s Secretary Style Pencil Wiggle Dress.” You can find the dress on Amazon.com.
Cordelia: Dress prim and proper in this “Shirt-Dressed For Success” dress from Modcloth.com.
2. The Food And Drinks
Be sure to serve fun witch-themed food and drinks during your viewing party. You can serve “extra dirty” martini’s like Fiona drinks for the 21+ crowd, or make your own “Witches’ Brew” [click HERE to find a recipe]. If you’re a fan of Spalding, turn your party into a tea party.
Get inspired by Madame LaLaurie’s ghoulish ways with “finger food” … food that actually looks like fingers [click HERE for “Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches”]. Or pull a page from Myrtle Snow’s book and serve melon … with eyeballs. Make your own eyeballs using mozzarella and olives [find the recipe for mozzarella eyeballs HERE].
Give everyone a chance to be the next Supreme at your party! Have your guests create their own Supreme portrait like the ones that hang on the wall at Miss Robichaux’s by using printable empty picture frames. Print some of the picture frames and leave a supply of coloring tools to create cool decorations for your viewing party. [Click HERE for a printable empty picture frame from Crayola.]
Don’t want to decorate your walls with Supreme portraits? Then turn your TV room into Spalding’s creepy attic. Dig your old dolls out of the crawlspace to re-create Spalding’s lair.
If you’re ready to go all out for your party, then pretend that the Axeman paid a visit to your home. Place a fake body in your bathtub for your guests to find when they go to the restroom. [Click HERE to find some props.]
