I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but I hope you can help me!
In a few weeks I am going to a party with the theme 'your favourite film charachter' I want to go as King George VI from the Kings speech - here is a pic of the look I want to acheive haha
I wondered if anyone had any ideas. I have a suit, and look a bit like firth anway, So i need some blue ribbon maybe some card for the medals? any ideas for the brass on the shoulders?
I would love some advice?

That's a naval full-dress tailcoat (same as Lord Fisher in my avatar). It's going to be extremely hard to find (you won't be able to approximate it with a suit). It'll probably be easier to go with this look: http://bristolculture.files.wordpres...ech-poster.jpg (no 1C dress of an Admiral of the Fleet). You could probably find an officer's uniform somewhere (ebay?) and have the rank insignia on the sleeve changed. That also means you won't need full-size medals.
Edit: But yeah, whichever one you go with, you'll just look like a random naval officer. Both uniforms are still worn today, so they don't really work as 'costume'.Last edited by rmanoj; 30-03-2011 at 14:26.
