    Hiya,

    When is it and do you mind paying for stuff that's not too expensive.

    Reason for asking is that there's a lady who sells stuff on ebay that she makes herself her name is helens_party_pieces[​IMG] have a look. I'm sure you'll get something good quite cheaply :)

    Ok, as a student, I've thrown fancy dress costumes together fairly cheaply...

    GI jane/army chic- easy peesy, done this one twice. first time got an oversized camoflage t-shirt from the market for about £3, and stuck a belt round the waist to give it shape. wear with jeans/leggings/cargo trousers. 2nd time I bought a camoflage dress from new look (they still have them) and did a sexier version. put dirt on face. camoflage hat from market (or army and navy stores) about £3ish? dog-tags about £2

    Pirate- stripy top + whatever the heck you like on the bottom. kiddies pirate set including gun, eye patch etc about 2-3 quid

    schoolgirl- duh! black or denim skirt + white shirt + tie + freckles drawn on face! pigtails and long socks optional!

    roman goddess- use a white bedsheet and fashion into a toga. gold jewellery.

    mummy- buy a couple of rolls of bandage and wrap yourself up from head to toe!!

    cowgirl- check pattern shirt, denim skirt, and cowboy hat- about £3 on market or £4-5 in shops like internacionale. gun optional

    hawaiian- loud blouse/top, grass skirt (with something underneath to hide your modesty!) flip-flops

    moulan-rouge- (not done this myself, not for the faint-hearted!!) corset, sexy skirt/no skirt:eek: suspenders, feather boa etc


    hope this helps!! I'll put my thinking cap on and try and come up with some more!! this is fun- it's reminding me of the days when uni was fun and i didn't have so much work that I wanted to kill myself!! lol

    Hi Mustdoit

    I'm fine thanks and you? Not sure whether to call you Susan or mustdoit :rolleyes: Been backwards and forwards to Reading and Swindon and commuting to Exeter each day next week so been a bit frantic.
    Did you see my post in the SW meetup thread about going to the Bath Spa june/july. Penny said she would like to go but said you really wanted to dress up (not this fancy dress - although may raise a few eyebrows :D) and go to the pump rooms one day

    Too posh

    No way you will get me in a dress/skirt at least not until my fat ankles disappear and that could be some time :rolleyes:
    Maybe we can arrange a date suits us all and you and Penny can go do your posh bit at the pump rooms and then join us for a couple of hours at the spa (especially as Pip has challenged me to lose 2 more stone and then she'll be paying for me :D) Mind you - don't think my food and alcohol blow out last weekend :giggle::giggle:will have helped that - but back on track now....

    Wrong week to ask

    Ah well - it was 0.2 of a kg - somewhere in the realms of ounces i think :rolleyes: I was away on a course in swindon last week with lunch provided (couldn't quite resist but kept to salads and yoghurts apart from the tortilla wrap!!!) and at the weekend we had some friends around and i cooked a meal (mushrooms, stilton and parma ham for starters, beef stroganoff and rice for main and they bought tarte citron for dessert:eek:) so a couple of ounces off i thought was quite an achievement ;)
    But i am back ssing - although OH has thoughtfully invited some friends around for a bar-b-q tonight so this week should be better. I'm just short of 4 stone off so far though.
