    As Garacesh above but add bra and pants and go as a sexy ghost. That is what Halloween is about right? Adding sexy before every costume?

    Grab a cheap bedsheet from ASDA in King or Super King and several metres of wide ribbon and some safety pins, then, depending on whether you are Male or Female: Male Roman Clothing Female Roman Clothing

    Some branches twisted into a horseshoe and pinned in place and some flat strappy sandals from primark (if your feet are small enough try the womens shoe department)

    i dont have this issue as i have a shed full of cosplays, mostly taken up with the omega cosplay iv been working on for 4 years now. that should be finished next summer

    cheapest thing i would say is go to a army surplus store and buy some gear from there done.

    Had an email yesterday from an associate organisation about fancy dress for today.

    it mentioned various things about the suitability of costumes and one thing said "No Flesh"

    I made two sugestions to my associate who would be there.

    as NO FLESH could be show....

    1) Go as the invisible man, route phone calls to his house and have the day off.
    2) Go as a mummy, send in a random off the street dressed as a mummy and instructions to ring him at home if there was an issue and have the day off.

    Rob.
