My adult nephew and his girlfriend have a fancy dress party to go as and the theme is the number 5?!

I'm stumped. So is he.

Any ideas anyone?

I like the Chanel idea, but go as Marilyn Monroe - who when asked what she wore in bed replied 'Chanel number 5'

Wear a pair of wings - as a 'High Five'

Rabbit costume as Fiver from Watership Down

Print some five pound note images out and stick them to your outfit
