It is fancy dress, dance theme.
I would look obscene in a leotard, tutu, or similar.
Budget is small.

Go 80s baby! Baggy t-shirt, leggings, leg warmers! If your hair's long, side ponytail, if not really gel it up!

Or flamenco, he he!

Dance without leotards.. erm flaminco (sp?), morris dancing...highland fling, the hula grass skirt etc?

I'd go as a bee. Make a big sack-like yellow and black striped body thing from cheap fabric (or get someone crafty to make for you), and wear over black tights and top, with pipe cleaner feelers and big shades. (Bees dance you see - and I love going to fancy dress things as a bee)

hair back, rose between teeth, long skirt, heels, big hoop earrings - is that flamnco?

Cathpot Sat 13-Sep-08 21:02:18

grin @ snowleopard, loving going as a bee!
I really like the idea of flamenco, but think the hostess is going as a flamenco dancer...
Ballroom dancer and oragne face is good, where can I get a bargain ballroom dress????

80's is great too, that sounds do-able!

pointydog Sat 13-Sep-08 21:20:48

Fame - just wear leg warmers

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 13-Sep-08 21:23:04

Just legwarmers shock ?

pointydog Sat 13-Sep-08 21:27:09

lolol - yaasss. SPice thigns up.

AnotherFineMess Sat 13-Sep-08 21:29:56

Ha, I read that as spice thighs up.

TK Maxx often have bargainous ballroom-type dresses.

pointydog Sat 13-Sep-08 21:31:02

Watch out for the high kicks. That could be an unpleasant sight.

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 13-Sep-08 21:31:35

Oh god, does not even bear thinking about!! Besides then I would have to shave legs and possibly even fake tan...

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 13-Sep-08 21:32:30

No that settles it, not going as pointydogs idea, would have to have a brazillian. There's no way.

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 13-Sep-08 21:33:52

It's my friend's MUM'S party. Can you imagine shock

pointydog Sat 13-Sep-08 21:34:59

Could you knit an extra big leg-warmer to go over your body like a tube? To make yourself decent.

geordieminx Sat 13-Sep-08 21:36:28

Dancing Queen?

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 13-Sep-08 21:36:37

LOL that is an excellent idea! Alas, my knitting skills are a bit crap, it would definitely have holes and unravel throughout the evening.
