First night out - fancy dress help

ok. My mother in law is on the way, so tomorrow is our first night out since the arrival of our little one 4 months ago. Whooooo!

Now it seems that our first night out will be at a party and need a fancy dress costume in a hurry - under the sea theme tomorrow night.

So any ideas??.?

(don't want to buy a crppy nylon costume for £30 - something home made is best!)

That's a hard one. Am thinking!

Where do you live, I have a green mermaidy dress!

Sorry, just realised you're a Daddy and therefore probably don't want a dress, mermaidy or not grin

Yep. I'm a chap.

Wearing a dress for our first post-partum party may not give the desired impression.

Under the sea..... Hmmm..?

Osama Bin Laden?

Can you make a massive tail for yourself from foil and don a large gold medallion and be a mer man?

Do you have long or short hair? You could make a long hair wig from wool if you don't have one.

Does a pirate count as under the sea? It is much sexier probably.

Would it be sick to suggest a Titanic victim and then wear a tux?

Ok... The Osama comment went down like a ton of bricks with DW.

Am going to wrap myself in rope and go as "the tide". . .

Although I will probably just look like a bondage SM freak... Here goes..
