The Casino Killings

Los Angeles, 1934. In the City of Angels, even the angels have dirty faces. To survive on these mean streets, a guy has to be tough, and a dame has to be tougher.
Lou Harger thought he was a tough guy, thought he could handle himself. He was wrong, dead wrong, and now he's just dead. Murdered. And the $20,000 that he won on the roulette-table is missing.
Legendary private eye Philip Marlowe has been investigating, and he's summoned together the principal suspects in his enquiries. One, or more, of the guests at dinner is a killer...


On Saturday night I went to a murder mystery dinner party hosted by some lovely friends from uni. My character was aspiring actress and "mysterious blonde" Miss Glenn. I'd been having an affair with the murder victim and was out with him on the night he died. Ooh suspicious...
I wore my Topshop fringed dress and took hair inspiration from Renée Zellweger in Chicago and pinned my hair into a flapper bob.


If anyone would like a tutorial on how to fake a flapper bob let me know and I'll do one.

If anyone is thinking about hosting one of these parties I'd say definitely do it, the sets aren't even expensive, they all seem to be around about £10. It was really fun, and often hilarious. Trying to do the accents is the best part.

The whole murderous lot together.

  1. Those murder mystery things are so fun - I did one a while ago with some friends. Funnily enough, ours was also set in a casino and it sounds like my character was very similar to yours, except she was called Scarlett O'Deara!

    The flapper bob looks great - I for one would love to see a tutorial xxx
