YABU to go to a fancy dress party.

Fancy dress parties are the work of the Devil.

Paint yourself a big M and chuck a net over it?

I saw someone at a party come as a bunch of grapes once, she had a brown long sleeved t shirt on and brown leggings and had just attached green balloons to herself! You could of course have purple balloons to match your wig grin

I think I saw that on Peppa Pig last week!!-bunch of grapes- not a bad idea

<ignoring Tchootnika's idea!>

Really not in the mood, are you?

Shove yesterday's papers down your top, stand around looking surly. When people ask what you are, you can say 'A stuffed shirt.'

lol--thats better!

Are you allowed weapons of any sort?

White paper overalls from B&Q, three black dots down the front, black around your eyes, orange lipstick over your nose, a stripy scarf and you are a snowman/woman! Easy peasy!!

an oxo cube? big cardboard box, tin foil, red card- no wig needed grin

Don't tease us, LineRunner! What's the costume?

SlackSally Mon 29-Aug-11 20:11:33


Easiest costume in the world. Old sheet, a few twigs for crown of thorns, two old planks of wood nailed together. Always been a winner for me.

Boris Johnson - buy a mask and wear a suit!

I love the grapes idea.

Spider? 2 pairs of black stuffed tights and wear black.

purplewig Mon 29-Aug-11 20:15:00

lololol! all great ideas

LOVE the Jesus idea! will i offend anyone, do you think?

i could go as 'an angel' aka nativity costume!

purplewig Mon 29-Aug-11 20:17:09

was thinking--probably couldnt drive dressed as grapes. Also will almost definitely get popped!


now I want to go to LOTS AND LOTSof fancy dress parties, to try all this out!!

purplewig Mon 29-Aug-11 20:18:15

a rioter maybe?

am really liking spider- was trying to think of a costume where I could wear false eyelashes. Im sure spiders have long eyelashes?

Hmm I would say Jesus is quite likely to offend.

When stuck I always go as a housewife- hair in curlers, slippers, facemask, bathrobe. Super comfy. Always gets a giggle.

AKissIsNotAContract Mon 29-Aug-11 20:23:09

The only thing I can think of with purple hair is Leela from futurama.

Zingylemontart Mon 29-Aug-11 20:47:23

Hit Girl from Kick Ass. Her wig is purple.

LineRunner Mon 29-Aug-11 20:51:32

Tchootnika, Don't get too excited! It's just that I'm always looking for an excuse to turn up to everything in jeans and checked shirt, and I have an woodcutting axe, so ... Lumberjack!

I do usually go to work without the axe, and pretend it's Dress Down [Any]Day.

Stick of rhubarb.

Wrap green crepe paper round you. Top it off with a Very Large Leaf.

A housewife! Put on a pencil skirt, a blouse with high heels. Put an apron on top and pick up your oven gloves on the way out. Put your hair up in a bun. Ditch the purple wig.
