Those who want to perfect their Halloween costumes before Wednesday, Oct. 31, can give them a test run at the Discovery Center of Idaho's next Adult Night. Grown-ups can don colorful neon threads Thursday, Oct. 25, and get their glow on with the Science of Luminescence.
The event includes luminescence as both science and fashion--those who wear neon or a costume will be entered into a drawing for a host of prizes. To commemorate the evening, attendees can snap a photo with a glowing beau or belle in an on-site photo booth.
What's a luminescent costume, you ask? Think the Light Cycle-riding characters in both Tron movies, or neon Morph Suits. The adults-only event puts together glow sticks, electroluminescent costumes, booze and bodies.
Admission includes access to the national touring exhibit Bodies: Revealed. The collection of plasticized cadavers showing the intricate workings of the human body will be on display at DCI through March 31, 2013.
In addition, access to DCI's cast of installations and a glass of beer or wine are included in the ticket price. Alcohol offerings include vino from Indian Creek Winery and brews from Crooked Fence Brewing and Payette Brewing Company, which can be poured into an Adult Night commemorative color-changing cup for $2. Archie's Place, A Cupcake Paradise and Boise Fry Company will offer eats.
Staff will lower the black lights to cast a glowing pallor over the exhibits. To light things up, DCI Education Director Woody Sobey will show visitors how to make their own glow sticks. Tickets are available in advance at the center's website.
