Please help me! My DH has to arrange his annual boys weekend away and he needs a theme for the Saturday night! I've tried my best but he poo poos everything I say so eventually I said I bet Mumsnet can come up with something! Previous years have had 70s pop stars, James Bond, 80s break dancers - you get the picture! Any thoughts??? Please!!! Thanks in advance!

I second wrestling...proper WWF from the late 80's/early 90's grin

Or classic computer game heroes...Mario, Donkey Kong, Street Fighter etc

Wrestling sounds good.

Female actresses?

Ooh 'famous people who share your first name' would be a nightmare for me. Can only think of a radio 4 presentersmile

What about choosing a letter and having to fancy-dress in something beginning with that letter? (have heard of 'P' parties for example, where people come as pimps, priests, popstars, pineapples?!). 'Where's Wally?' also seems a popular fancy-dress theme at the moment too...

Alter ego?
Childhood ambitions?
Not sure if it would work as well for this situation but a friend had a fancy dress party and the theme was shipwrecked - boys bought cheap suits and ripped them/generally trashed them, or wore armbands and life jackets/made little skirts out of bits of sacking (and novelty coconut bras of course).

dress as an adjective? it's hard to theme the rest of the party, though..

I like the letter idea.

or (boringly) a beach party?
