Date Idea: Masquerade or Mystery Themed

    I have some masquerade masks and I want to use them as a prop for a date night for my bride.  Any ideas?  Thoughts?

    I know you will suggest roleplaying (go for it), but I dont know that my wife would be very comfortable with that so I’d like suggestions in addition to that.

      Dude! idk if you’ve used them yet but… I did something epic with mine.

      So I kinda have a Tim the Tool-man Taylor sort of motto that “Nothins worth doing unless it’s worth over-doing” when it comes to dating. I had an idea a couple years ago about writing a mystery/spy storyline and leaving my wife coded messages and clues which slowly reveal the storyline over weeks or months. Basically I came up with escape room style puzzles that when solved gave her the location of an envelope with more storyline. (Envelopes were ages paper with Jane austen font and sealed with wax!)

      The storyline always led to dates. So the first one I did was a masquerade ball at a murder mystery dinner. I basically just find local date ideas that fit the theme and learn a couple small things about the event and write it into my storyline.

      This thing got way out of hand because I’m crazy, but it can be as simple or complex as you’d want. The trick is to have some of the clues lead to small gifts that hint toward the future dates.

      I remember when she opened a locked box she had to solve clues for the code for and she pulled out the Venetian masquerade masks.

      Dude I got sooooooooo laid.

      Include invisible ink, u.v. inks, dollar store tool boxes and dollar store bicycle locks/combo locks etc.

      The beauty of this is you can gift her with crazy stuff you wanna see her wear or use on occasion AND even jewelry when you can afford it.

      Soooo sooooo laid.

        One thing I think would be cool, but have never asked Zelda, is to use a mask like that to give some anonymity for making a home video. Don’t know if I’d actually be willing to do it if given the opportunity, and I doubt she would.


        p.s. – I hope your personal situation has improved since late December!

          I always think of a masquerade ball when I see those type of masks. Could you do some ballroom dancing in your living room? Or sign up for lessons with your DW and use the masks while you practice at home.

            Not exactly on topic, but I have always dearly wished I could participate in an old-fashioned masquerade ball–19th century style, with hoop skirts and elaborate masks and sneaking off into the curtained alcoves of a mansion with my dashing masked “stranger”. (DH only!)

            It occurs to me that for those who have suggested a live meeting of TMB participants, this might be one way folks would feel comfortable giving it a go. It could be fun to dress in costumes relating to our screen names (which means I get to wear my 19th century ball gown after all!).

            (BTW, that’s just a whimsical thought; I don’t see a live gathering ever actually happening.)

              Okay a real answer now: have you ever seen in movies where people are bold enough to do something like walk around all day talking to everyone in a funny accent? Wouldn’t it be fun to be bold enough to go out to dinner at a fancy restaurant wearing your masks? (Although in some states, including ours, it is illegal for adults to appear in public while masked, so maybe check that first.)

              If she has any latent exhibitionist tendencies, try setting them up around your bedroom and pretending they are worn by members of a secret sex club where you have met for a tryst and they are watching from the shadows.

                  @ ElevenOclock:  I applaud the massive amount of effort and thought you put into dating your wife! I’m sure she appreciates how hard you work to let her know you love her.

                    Cool, is there DM’s or where is appropriate to explain it? I’m new to the forum so I don’t want to put it in the wrong spot!

                      A variation to 11oclock is to make clues/riddles to various places that your spouse has to figure out to visit. At each place, prearrange something your spouse is to pick up that you’ve already purchased and then a clue for the next spot. Ultimately, you could do something like flowers, a favorite place of theirs for a gift, a “toy”, lingerie, a CD to make love to, even dinner and then after the meal, arrange for the server to give you spouse a clue while you go slip out to “go the restroom” (table reservation & placement is critical) and then you could to a local hotel room you’ve arranged.
