my sister is having a birthday party for her oldest, who will be 16, and she is having it in fancy dress, 60's style.

what am i going to dress 4 kids and me in?!

It's on the 4th of march

my immediate thought was the beatles/bootleg spoof type beatles and then realised there are 5 of you....sorry lou i'm useless but nice tosee you around xx

Aargh. Mini skirts for the girls? (normal skirts that they've outgrown but can just about fit into?) Flares for the boys I guess- you could do the authentic 60s thing and take straight jeans and insert a triangle of groovy 60s style fabric into the ends to make them flared (). Chain belts of some description and heavy pendants, bandanas would be easy..... I'll keep thinking!

more please!

hi chatee, long time no see

Plenty of Beads, Bandanas, headbands, John Lennon glasses--madras shirts--neru collars....you would think I was there LOU!

I mean in the 60's!!!! HOT PANTS (or was that 70's then?) Groovey and Peace symbols. Tremendous POT cigarettes for all the kids. Hashish pipe....what else would you need?

see this is the problem.

dh is away from today unto the 7th march so i have no way fo getting about with ds2 in a wheelchair, so can't go rummaging in charity shops, it has to be what i already have in the house. I have a brown leather 60's mini skirt for me, and , er... that's it.

yes i can see the delight in my sister's face as i speak when my kids turn out stoned.

Deck everyone out in old sheets and say you've come as a Whiter Shade of Pale.

Or just nakedness and body paint.

the moneky , aka spacedonkey, is currently without internet access, so only dropping into cafes occasionally to post

lou33 Wed 23-Feb-05 20:32:50

that would be cheap and simple and means i get to flash my tan mi, so i will give that more thought

lou33 Wed 23-Feb-05 23:52:47

anyone else?

Jackson five? or are they 70's?

If you are all white, you could put on brown face paint, afro wigs and the wackiest outfits from your wardrobes.

I'm trying to think of TV progs from the 60's with children. Was the partridge family 60's? Long hair and plaits, dungarees lol

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Thu 24-Feb-05 00:24:19

probably wouldn't do the brown paint. Just my opinion. But I also thought that you should go as the Jackson 5, think they were more 70s though, which made me think of the Osmonds...

I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool
