3 Cheers for the Red White and Glu!

Hurray for the red, white and Kardashian!

Here's how Kim dressed for the 4th 2 years ago,

Let's show our Patriotic Pride Dolls, just like Kimmie!

Happy 4th of July Dolls!!!


4th of July always meant "Ok, it's officially Summer, let's make it special"
I asked my millennial son, give me a song that signals summer to you.
Here's his pick.

Now what will we be doing?
It's Anyone's guess........
But glu goddess Kalinda has the facts.
Yesterday she shared this little hint.....................
This weekend will be special and it has a fun theme. Everyone can earn classic hairstyles that I love!
Fun theme, special weekend, classic hair............
So while we ponder that, Let's set up for the food and beverages.

Something sweet for the 4th perhaps?

Whether it's Red, White and Blue Choc dipped strawberries, Flag Colored Cupcakes or
the Red White annd Blue Cake B@llz on sticks. Mmmmmmmm lip smacking Patriotism!

And we need a little libation to wash it all down

Sure, 4th of July hits on Tuesday,
but this weekend is when the bulk of the celebrating takes place.

Traditionally, the holiday is marked by people flocking to the beach, fireworks, picnics and more.
The Annual Macy*s 4th of July Fireworks Celebration is spectacular.
Broadcast on Network TV, the pyrotechnics display lights up the Hudson in Spectacular Fashion.

You can watch those on Tuesday on TV or from the City, But here's a little homemade taste.

Don't try this at home.
What are your plans this weekend?
Huh? Trick Question? Oh, just because we don't know what we'll be doing.

Will it be an easy VIP? Or will we grind till the dawn's early light?

You know who knows? Our Glu Goddess Kalinda knows.

And maybe if we show we really really reallly really want to know what the
Weekend has in store for us, she quench our thirst for Spoilers.

So put on your fave red white and blue clothes, and lets' Party.

And what is our Thread Starting Motto?

    I'm waiting for this weekend's spoilers with some trepidation. Being British the 4th July doesn't have the same resonance as it does across the pond (in fact for us it's just another day). So while the teaser of classic hairstyles sounds fabulous I'm hoping for not too many American flag themed items as they're not something my doll would wear.

    Love your opening, Koko!!
    I share Elspeth's view, over here the 4th of July is also just another day, but I love how you are all celebrating it!
    I think that last year's items were red, white and blue but not as 'American' as the first year (when we had the American flag bikini). Let me find a picture!
    Well, I'm excited to see what a 'classic hairstyle' would be!

    ETA: here are the items of last year's event

    I'm going on a bachelorette trip so I won't have much time to grind this weekend. I'll be back in town on Sunday though so I hope we get an extra day for the event so I can at least earn something :( I was hoping it would be VIP but since we had that with the midweek that's probably too much to ask.

    TBH, I had to dig through 2 dolls clothes to find red white and blue stuff. So, it hasn't been all patriotic things. I don't know if this is a good time or not, don't mean to rub old red white & blue in your face, but I was making this, in honor of all the beach and backyard fun we'll be having this weekend.

    In all honesty, the 4th of July commemorating the implimentation of the Declaration of Independence, my American Studies class taught us that despite the famous portrait of the signing of the Declaration, it was taken around to the other representatives by horseback, and the document traveled for about 2 weeks to collect all the signatures. So, we 'could' be celebrating the 20th of July or something.

    When I was little, my mother would always dress me in a Sailor dress.
    Looks like Kris did that to her girls too, but my mother never fixed me up like this.

    8d6cc7b3e71645d5249c3b13f8e3461d.jpg

    So Happy 4th, Happy 25th, Happy Sailor suits.
    I'm excited by Kalinda's hints. they are always well thought out, and right on the money.
    • Classic Hair? Lauren Bacalls signature look (also Jessica Rabbit)
    Princess Grace? What is 'classic hair'?


    • Special Weekend


    • Fun Theme


    Help us figure out these clues?

    (and now for Elspeth and other's who mark the day as any other on the calendar, I hope we're all thrilled with some fantastic looking non patriotic things. :) )

    I'm such a cranky old lady when the 4th falls on a weekday because I have to work the next day. My dogs are terrified of fireworks so even if I could sleep through them, I have a dog in my face freaking out. Last year my neighbor shot off a bottle rocket (which are illegal in my state btw) and it landed on our deck as I was standing out there trying to get the dogs to do their business outside. I about killed someone.

    Being Canadian we celebrate Canada Day on July 1st so it will be a long weekend of celebration for us as well. I appreciated the red and white clothing that was featured last year because those are the colours of the Canadian flag ... no blue though lol. Wherever you may live, hopefully the weekend event will be enjoyable for all :):)

Also illegal in my state SoundsPrettyentary,but they do it in the elem, middle and high school complex in a big triangle across the street...the parking lots and fields are like a battlefield the next day full of spent explosives the next day.

    Hey cool, a sale on previous 4th of July items! I appreciate that, thank you Glu! Of the women's items, I particularly like the earnable gold necklace and the gift box leggings and boots.
    Classic Hair? Lauren Bacalls signature look (also Jessica Rabbit)

    Oh my gosh, can you imagine a Jessica Rabbit in-game Halloween outfit? The sparkling sequined dress, the opera gloves, the sidebang covering one eye...

    Extended time to play and sale of previous items! Can I hear a HELL YEAH!!! Super excited. The new earnables and GB items are right up my ally can I also say I appreciate so much that Glu have provided us with lots of earnable hair recently.

    I hope the hair from last years event is going to be on sale I loved it!

    I'm very happy! Love the earnable jumpsuit and hair and I'll be crossing my fingers for the GB boots. Plus I'm only a few places off the Number 1 spot so a few parties will definitely help me get there.
    And thanks Linda for the reminder of last years outfits, the blue skirt and star top are one of my favourites. My doll wears them all the time!

    I hate the earnable sh!t with passion!:eek:

    Even not being American, I like those star-spangled clothes from previous events, unfortunately none stars this time...

    Yes to another sale! Guess that they will be doing thematic sales from now on and this is a great idea!;)

    Hope this sale holds non thematic items as the Anniversary one did, cause I have most of the items of previous years.

    Thanks Kalinda!:)

    Ugh a party weekend. Well I definitely won't finish lol. I'll really only have a day and a half to play.

    Honestly I'm not crazy about anything so that makes me feel a little better. Vats you don't want a brown outfit to go with your brown shoes? :p

    Well kudos for having the hair be earnable, even if I don't understand the style. Im appreciating the TB sales too. I know I suggested that, so great to feel like we are being heard.

    I feel like we have almost this same exact jumpsuit from a previous event. But hey at least it's not flag print, which I find super trashy and irreverent. Not feeling really patriotic this year either.

    Also, soundspretty, I am with you on the fireworks. My dog shakes and needs to hide under the blanket when he hears fireworks.

    They're illegal in MA but it doesn't stop the yahoos next door from smuggling them over the NH border and shooting them off.

    They were letting their 8-9 year olds shoot bottle rockets at each other a few months ago and I actually called the cops on them. So I guess I challenge your cranky old lady crown. All I could picture was one of those kids losing a hand. I don't know what some people are thinking.

    I'm in love with the female earnables! I can never say no to a bun and especially with bangs it's more than what I can expect... thank you Kalinda for the spoilers. :o

    I really like the gift box items, but I'm a little meh on the earnable outfit. We have two red jumpsuits in our closet already (and one of them has pants that go properly go to the floor instead of stopping above the ankle to show off our dolls' cankles). Also, something seems really off to me about the hair, but I can't put my finger on it. Are the bangs extending backward into the bun? Is the texture off? It just looks really strange to me. But I like the earnables! The coat would have been fantastic, but I understand why it's hard to render a separables outfit with a coat.

    Sugar, I didn't know you were Canadian! Hello northern neighbor.

    I have a random day off today and I'm watching Inception and why is Tom Hardy so good and so gorgeous in this?

    I wonder how many event points we will have to earn for each item. I hope it doesn't take 700+ to complete.

    Typical weekend events = 25 / 150 / 300 / 600
    Events extended by one day = 50 / 200 / 375 / 625
    This event, extended by two days = 55 (from Kalinda's pics) / x? / y? / z?

    If it takes just one or two more parties overall, that's not so bad. Or maybe we'll have four weekend quest gigs instead of the usual three. Here's hoping -- 4th of July festivities usually make for the busiest weekend of the year for me.

    Oh get that, think girls got to wear just flag based colors, but guys got this really cute B&W jacket with stars printed on, was hoping for things like this again. Not here for St. Patty too!

    Vats you don't want a brown outfit to go with your brown shoes? :p

    And I must point, that I have a huge collection of them!

    Oh did you already checked his new show 'Taboo'? I'm looking foward to watch it, heard it's really good, and I swear that my excitment doesn't have to do with those leaked pics of him shooting the show a while ago...Ok, I'm such a liar! XD

    I noticed that too. I think because the cut of the bangs is uneven. They appear much shorter on one side and then you have that rogue longer piece in front of the ear. It's definitely strange.

    I think with the hair, they were going for the "fake bangs with bun" look. At least to me it looks like it. Try googling!
