xanadu fabulousity

so, the zephyr winter retreat is happening as i type.  during this yearly affair, the summer staffers come back "home" to see everyone, get poured into by worship and message, eat and have fun!  :)  one of my favorite things about the winter retreat is the themed party.   this year the theme is "mythical magical christmas".  immediately i thought of my all time favorite mythical character...olivia newton john as "kira" from xanadu!  could i pull this off?   i've wanted to be kira for many dress up occasions.  it never happened because i was either too young (the slit in her amazing muse dress is a tad high) or couldn't find all the pieces to complete this awesome 80's outfit. (ribbon barrettes, white roller skates, leg warmers and the off the shoulder ruffle dress.) 

this movie has it all!  roller skates, a fun soundtrack, fabulous costumes, an animated sequence, singing & dancing...what else would you expect from an 80's olivia newton john movie?!

if you wanted to watch this with your kiddos, depending on their age, i wouldn't let them watch the whole movie.  (there are some awkward dance scenes.) instead, either skip those parts or show them the finale here on you tube. 

but alas, looks like i won't pull it off again this time either.  *tear*

that shouldn't mean you don't get to see some kira shots of your own.  you're welcome. ;)

there she is.

skating with her human love, sonny

olivia + sequined jumpsuit + feathered layers = hot. hottie. hot.

"kira" and some of her muse sisters

one of my favorite parts

some of olivia's  looks in the movie.

so, what will i be for this mythical christmas party?  it won't be as fabulous as kira, but fabulous none the less. 



  1. I LOVE Xanadu... & Liv (Kira)!
    We should have a viewing party someday... or better yet, a dress up Xanadu Party! :) xo

  2. Oh. my. gosh. I LOVE THAT OUTFIT! You should totally just make yourself one for fun....haha. I can't believe I've never seen that movie. 80s clothes and Olivia Newton John? It's right up my alley! I have to check it out...

  3. oh Abby, you definitely should!
