My friends and I have had three Clue murder mystery dinner parties over the years– 2000, 2006, and 2009. The one we had this last January was about as lavish and over the top as I could possibly make it! I was very focused on the Clue Cast Group Costume and was meticulous about portraying each character through their ensemble as well as making sure each suspect wore as much of their color on as possible!
