You get an invite to your best friend’s trunk show, and you can’t wait; a perfect excuse to break out your favorite outfit!
But when you show up, your are shocked to find out that a trunk show is not, as you assumed, a parade of people dressed in elephant costumes (though that would be our natural assumption, too) but rather a sought-after sales event set up to parade select merchandise to select customers. Semantics. Though, that would explain why the invite had very little elephant-related imagery and the additional 15% off offer good until 11 A.M. Ah, well. What can you do? We would rather go to the trunk show you were envisioning (when you plan one, we’re all ears!) and as it turns out, so would everyone else. Because suddenly, you’re the hit of the sale in this Happy Elephant Costume, and your friend gets more business with you as her mascot than she has in the past five events, combined.
We can’t blame the shoppers for being tickled pink by your gray velour jumpsuit and tufted tail. But it is the hood, with its majestic stuffed trunk, tusks, and ears that is drawing the most attention. When you do a little dance in front of your pal’s booth, her sales double! That’s some powerful elephant magic. So why not parade this playful costume around for an encore performance come Halloween and see what kind of crowd you can please, there? We bet it’ll be an unforgettable night!
