I’ve had experience with this participating in and running a charity event and I’m wondering what others think. An event that we’ve found that works really well for charity fundraising is getting people messy – particularly slimed with like nickelodeon slime and/or hit with pies in the face. Of course the volunteer gets totally messy and so does their outfit. However it sort of makes sense, and I’ve now seen it in practice, that you can raise more money if the volunteer is dressed up in a nice, clean outfit, with makeup/hair done nicely. The more dressed up the better, especially when the outfit is really fashionable. So I’m wondering, if you volunteered to get slimed and pied, would you be willing to dress up: wear something nice (fashionable outfit, preferably with heels) and put a lot of effort into your appearance, in an effort to raise more money? Basically the idea is to look like you had no idea you’d be getting messy.

Personally, I wouldn’t be willing to get dressed up to be slimed/have a pie thrown in my face. It would be one expensive dry cleaning bill and I wouldn’t want to walk around the rest of the night all messy.

Yes, I would. I’d be getting my butt to a Goodwill so I can throw the clothes away instead of messing up my washer! I’ve done something messy like this before and it was pointless cleaning my clothes; my hair had so much jello and crisco in it I clogged the shower drain! It’s worth it and it’s a lot of fun!
You can get really lovely clothes at Goodwill for CHEAP!

Agree with goodwill- See if you can find a cheap prom dress or wedding dress! It would be a lot of fun to wear that around for the messy stuff.
That was always a kick at our local fair

I probably should have mentioned this. My mom owns a small clothing store in our town, so she/I can get very nice clothes at zero mark-up. I mean they are not free but they are fairly low cost compared to retail (as you can imagine.) My mom would be willing to donate outfits to at least several people getting slimed/pied. That way they could wear something fashionable and stylish and not spend any money or worry about it getting ruined.
