    Costume advice - Musicals

    The staff are doing a "musicals" theme for Children In Need this year. Now I know pretty much any outfit has probably been a musical at one point "shrek the musical/batman the musical, etc" so i could shoehorn any in, i'd prefer something a little more precise.
    Ideas at the moment for me are:
    - Phantom of the opera (with mask and fake scarring on face)
    - Oompah Loompah
    - Willie Wonka
    - Riff Raff from Rocky Horror Show (I'd love to go as Frank 'N' Furter but don't think the stocking and sussies would go down too well in a girls school

    I want something that is a little different, but not too far from the normal "musicals" of Grease, etc.

    Any ideas welcomed

    The Oompah Loompa Phantom of the Chocolate Factory???

    Failing that:

    The Wizard of Oz combined with Doctor Who, The Wizard of Ood?

    You could find something the kids'll love and enjoy - then try to work that into something that is already there, creating a unique mashup they'll not forget.

    I've seen some awesome Cats outfits but they need a figure. :P

    I wonder if Avenue Q would be acceptable...

    Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?

    I think Phantom or Cats are probably the easiest I'm afraid

    Got to be Priscilla Queen of the Desert, that'll go nicely with a Movemeber mustache.

    At the mo I'm tempted by an oompah loompah most, purely for comedic effect when wearing the orange paint.

    Plenty of ace costume potential from We Will Rock You depending on how much time and energy you have.
