    Late invite to a party etc... I only have 2 days to come up with a costume :eek3:. I don't wanna go out and buy a proper custome as I am completely lacking in cash anyway. Any ideas that can be made up from your standard wardrobe with a little innovation here and there?

    Thanks a lot

    No, sorry should have mentioned that.

    Any kind of fancy dress will suffice.

    Cheap face paints, then match your outfit to the colours in the paint/design.
    Black and white striped top, black trousers, black hat, and pillow case for swag - bank robber.

    Something topical. In the summer a friend of mine came to a fancy dress party as "Swine Flu". Best. Costume. Ever.

    Cheap outfits I've done:

    Cowgirl (boots, check shirt, triangle scarf and went and bought a £2 hat)
    Woodland creature (face paint, and floaty clothing)
    School girl (old uniform)

    Ok, so I know these are a little predictable, but if you don't have a lot of time they might be best.

    On the other hand you could do a dress code thing for yourself, like all in black and white, or all neon/bright colours. I've had friends to this - they looked EPIC :lol:

    ...Or, remove the pillow case, and change the black hat for a beret if you have one, and hey presto, you've got yourself a mime. :yep:

    Sharp suit, trilby hat, dodgy cod-Italian-New York accent, sorted.

    If you have a suit, you could go as a vampire with white face paint on your face and fake blood
    Cowboy (jeans, check shirt and cowboy hat)
    One of them Hawiian people with hula grass skirt and flowers (I know you're male, but it would be good)
    A pirate (if you can get an eye patch, sword, etc)


    Look in a fancy dress shop and see if they have any left over items in the sale from Christmas.
