That sound's like it will be fun. Think glamourous OTT, slinky dresses, fishnets, tulle skirts, full make up, feather boas, corsets lace and colour showgirl etc. I think anywhere between Dita Von Teese style and Nicole Kidman, in her role in Moulin Rouge. You can get high street shop ideas e.g.
feather boa, lace corset
lace skirt
sequin mask

If you're very short, you could wear a black trouser suit, a bowler hat and wave a paintbrush about. Voila! Toulouse-Lautrec.
