    A friend (it is a friend, honest!) is having a fancy dress party as their housewarming and wants to give it a theme. Pirates or Tube stations are being bandied around as ideas at the moment. Surely some of you have got a better idea.

    A Bad taste theme is always fun...there's been some real shockers in the past!

    We've also had a 'P' party - Pavarotti, Prozzie, Platoon, Pixie, Policeman etc....

    Jehovah Witnesses, then when they all turn up, your friend can tell them all to "f**k off"

    If they have very few friends indeed they could dress up as famous Belgians ;)

    So that'd be Eddy Merckx and Jean Claude Van Damme, then!

    We had a clothes swap party - everyone had to turn up in fancy dress of their choosing, then when people arrived they got given a number on a kiddies plaster (you know, mickey mouse, etc etc playing on the plaster) to stick on their forehead.

    Then every 45mins or so the cooker timer would go off and the host read out a list of numbers as pairs. Everyone had to find the person they were paired with and swap costumes.

    My friends gf put a lot of effort in, so that people wouldn't mismatch size-wise ridiculously. I think I started as a vampire, turned into a cheerleader (!), then an american football player and a slutty nurse at the end.

    Was brilliant fun, but needs an organised mind (and close friends) to pull it off.

    I only tried it once, and I would like to forget it.

    If you tried it 20 times, you definitely would have forgotten it; and everything else. ;)

  13. "Come as a Pub" is always a good one for fancy dress. A mate of mine turned up in normal clothes with a sign around his neck reading: "FANCY A SHAG? PISS OFF, I CAN'T BE ARSED." When questioned as to what pub he represented, exactly, he replied that there was a pub in Bradford called The Idle Cock.;)

    it's a bit run of the mill but James Bond goes down well. one guy looked really good... he donned a tuxedo teamed with flippers and a fake duck on his head.

    and my boss went as goldfinger.

    I once got invited to a fancy dress 'meet the neighbours, party. I duly turned up and was shown into the main room. The only one in fancy dress was me, it broke the ice though and afterwards the host (my now ex mate) said the atmosphere of the party improved after I arrived.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
