I went to one as Marie Antoinette in my wedding dress - only had to buy a very cheap tall wig from a fancy dress shop and white my face up and colour in a big beauty spot.
Everyone thought I'd made loads of effort - gave me a chance to be the belle of the ball in my wedding gown again.
Loving Richard Reid and The Lactator though

I love fancy dress, it's a real ice breaker. I just spent New Year in a Cornish fishing village and everyone was in fancy dress on NYE. It was such a funny night and there were some brilliant costumes.
My fave was the shark, especially when I saw him and the guy dressed as a pimp staggering up the lane at 11 am on New Year's Day. They'd clearly been in the pub all night.

Hate Hate Hate them.
I want to wear my own well chosen clothes that hid the fact that I am not slim (well I say hide they are not magic clothes so maybe just not show just how unslim)..
Fancy dress makes me feel old, fat and frumpy... Halloween the only exception as even I can go dressed as a witch and look ok.
