    How about the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. All you need is a black outfit with a cape, a witch hat and some green face paint.

    Sally Bowles (black vest top, black shorts, simple stockings/cut up an old pair of tights, you can get cheap bowler hats if you look)

    Baby Jane (White nightdress, overapplication of eyeliner, cheap nasty wig)

    Marilyn's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes costume?

    This needs effort, but very cheap and fun (imo anyway) get a skin tone leotard and those see-through tights and glue Ann Summer's fabric rose petals all over them a la Angela from American Beauty :awesome:
