Kill me now.

Or help me think of what to wear because I'm shit at this.

I'm short and fat and I struggle to find ANY clothes for parties that I'm comfortable in, never mind with themed restrictions!

So far, I've got a plain ish navy and white circle dress from Lindybop and an anchor necklace <yawn>

Anyone got any more creative ideas of how to do this theme?

That sounds fine.
Jeans, navy/white striped T shirt, blazer.
No need to get too elaborate, unless you fancy a pirate outfit.

I feel exactly the same about fancy dress. I hate all the tiny outfits that make me look shorter (and fatter) than I already am.

Can it be anything nautical related? If so, I'd go as Napoleon or a pirate.

do you need any more than that? Can you buy a plastic lobster and make a 'witty' fascinator out of it?

ok, I like the lobster, that's good! I have a red dress. Maybe I could BE a lobster??

Also looking at sailor tattoos on amazon...

Fuck it. Where can I get a big yellow raincoat?

See if Scott Mills will lend you his Strickly costume.

Melanie, i had to google that, but yes, that is EXACTLY my level of elegance!

There ya go Maybe a <tiny> bit beyond the fancy dress budget...

Every year I eye up yellow raincoats and every year I just about manage to remind myself that I'd look like I was in fancy dress as a fisherman.

Your outfit sounds fine. Couple of fake tattoos and you're sorted.

And the lobster claws obviously.

Googled Scott he supposed to look like he blacked up?? confused

I really like that yellow coat lynniep, never mind for fancy dress.

Its pretty nice isn't it - although you'd attract ALL the thunderbugs (and the blue one is £60 less)

Glammed to the nines and claim you are dressed for dinner at the Captain's table <a bit weak but worth a punt>
