    Default Dress up party ideas please!

    Hi - DH and I have a friends dress up party in a couple weeks.

    I never know what to wear to these sorts of parties...

    I'd love to hear what other people have dressed up as before....??

    1920 flapper and gangster always looks good. I love dressing up era themed.

    Ooooh let's think. I've dressed as Phantom of the Opera (who'd lost his voice, I can't sing!) Magenta from Rocky Horror, a medieval princess, a vampire (used the same dress for both) and a fairy princess.

    It also depends on what you're comfortable wearing, not to mention the weather! Other things to take into consideration are the location of the party and how much effort you want to put into your costume.

    What's your body shape and body confidence like OP? What do you look like? ARe you wanting to hire out/buy a costume or DIY?

    I've been to numerous. I've been a 50s starlet, a 60s girl kinda like Kate Hudson in Almost Famous, a 20s brothel owner (that was a murder mystery dinner, so I had a set character), a little German girl, a Vampire from around 1700-1800s, Cinderalla, a 50s girl with a little rock n roll skirt and bobby socks, a nerdy bookworm librarian with massive glasses, a Chinese woman... and almost went as something to Cleopatra but got sick last minute (I had a black shoulder-legnth hairstyle with a big fringe, so that's why I was going to do that... lol).

    One of the best ones I've seen lately for your DH is to get dressed as the guy from the Hangover. Dark glasses, beard, wearing a baby doll inside a baby Bjorne. So easy and simple.

    Does it have a theme? Dress up parties without a theme are a real PITA.
    Some things I've dressed as:

    Jessie from Toy Story for a cowboys and Indians party

    A sailor for a Love Boat party

    Zorro (that one was such a fun costume!) for a 'stars of the silver screen' party

    Sally (DP as Jack) from The Nightmare before Xmas for a few Halloween parties

    A dead cheerleader for Halloween

    Smurfette for Halloween (not scary but heaps of fun)

    I wore a snakeskin jumpsuit with teased up hair for a 70's party

    Me and 3 friends went as Heathers for an 80's party

    Lara Croft for a 'what you wanted to be when you grew up' party (i wanted to be an archaeologist)

    Characters are always fairly easy I think.

    Thanks for all the ideas!!

    I have just found a great costume hire place around the corner so I'll be heading in today to have a look.

    It's imperative that I'm comfortable, not using any type of body paint on face or body and it won't give me the $hits wearing it three sheets to the wind.

    I think I'll have to try a few on to decide...

    I'm excited

    Ive gone as:

    - Vampire
    - Snow White
    - Pebbles (Flinstones)
    - Juliet (Angel like Claire Danes in the newer Romeo and Juliet movie)
    - Lara Croft
    - Goldilocks
    - Goth
    - Sailor Moon

    DP has dressed like the tooth fairy before. Was hilarious. Also, my mum used to have annnual costume parties and some of the outfits were

    - Rip Van Winkle (wearing pj onesie and a sleeping hat)
    - French maids
    - Preschooler (looked soo funny! Adult male wearing stubbies, knee high socks, tucked in collared shirt with a tie and backpack and drew freckles on his face...he pulled a kiddy smile in every pic too...was great )
    - Punk
    - Princess
    - Present (Giant box with arm and head holes and the bottom cut out. Box was wrapped and a huge box around it with the giant bow as a headpiece...then stockings in the same colour as the box and heels )

    As you can see, Im remembering the costumes mainly from her last party which was a 'P' party Lol
