Hiya

We have been invited to a fancy dress party. Its come round all of a sudden and its next Saturday  :eek:
Dress code is Movie Star/ Character.
Now funds are very scarce so need to improvise but havent a clue what to go as. Neither has Paul.
Joe is going as Buzz Lightyear as he already has the costume from a previous party.
So can anyone help please?

I'm not a slim person so please be kind :)

Oh i'll give loads of bubbles or credits to the best one ;)

If Paul has a dinner jacket / bow tie and you have an evening dress then James Bond and any of his female sidekicks....

How about Thelma and Louise (does your DH do drag?  ???  ;D)

:-[ sorry, am trying to think of something sensible - was going to suggest Marilyn Monroe - just need a good bra, blond wig and something low cut....

(PS Just asked DH for ideas and he said Shrek and Mrs Shrek so I am off to  ^bigbad^  ^bigbad^  ^bigbad^ very hard for being cheeky!)

Will have a think about it overnight and try to come up with some more sensible suggestions  :-*

You could do Miss Piggy and Kermit....  The downside is you have to wear a piggy nose and blond wig with your posh dress and pearls, but the plus side is you get to see DH in green tights and a bow tie!!!  ;D  ;D

Sorry, I'll go to bed now as I'm not being very sensible am I?  :-[  :-[  ::)

So could I  ;D  ;D  PS hope you weren't offended by that - I was carried away by the thought of men in green tights when I was typing it  :-[  ^idiot^  But whilst we are on the subject - how about maid Marion and Robin Hood (or just a man in tights  ???  ;D  ;D)

Right, really am off now as tiredness and stupidity obviously reign in my house  :-[  ^idiot^  ;D

No offence taken fluffs.

Just a thought not really looking to go as a pair so individual ideas may be best.

What about trying freecycle or your local oxfam to see if they have any free/cheap clothes you could adapt.

Get a grey shader from the chemist, a tiara from clares (£2.50), put some curlers in and you could go as the Queen (as in helen mirram film).  Id do that just to wear the tiara  ;D ;D

Get Jax round to face paint paul as spiderman and there you go  ;D ;D

One of you could go as M from James Bond,
wear a white jacket, few pens in the top pocket, and you could make a badge with
"M" on it

or get DH to wear a suit, go buy a gun from the pound shop, then go to a florist
and beg, or pay a couple of pounds for them to spray the gun gold

then he could be the Man with the golden gun !

just some ideas we did from James bond night

I went in a Sari, hides all bumps, Mark had a James bond mask, but wore a dinner suit
friends went as "M" and man with golden gun


Argos do sell some costumes, but money  :p unless you've got a money tree in garden

will sit and think who else you could go as, from our Hollywood/Bollywood night


you could borrow a peak cap from someone, then black a bit of dh face and he could be the sweep from Mary poppins, what was his name  ::) ::)

Dick van dike, but what was his character  :-\

He could wear a suit and go as a Man from UNCLE, and pretend to have a special pen, watch and a throw away camera that was spy stuff

note the technical terms, spy stuff  ;D ;D ;D ;D
