Blimey, is fancy dress expensive in the UK!

To get an actual Tinkerbell costume, which was my first idea, for Michaela would have been £30 - most fairy costumes similar, and it's a film themed party.

I did however manage to get her a supergirl vest/romper complete with cape, which only needs tights to go with it - and since it's pink she can wear pink tights she's already got. That was only £10. I have decided I'm going to be a pink lady from Grease given that I found a pink ladies jacket for £10 online and I already have black leggings, sandals and tops I can put with it to create the desired effect.

If you were going to a fancy dress, what would you choose to wear?

What about if it was film themed like Daniel's party?

What about if it had to be something sexy for an adult party?

What about if it was famous couples from history, what would you and DH go as?

What about if it was film themed like Daniel's party? Mmmm...Betty Boop!

What about if it had to be something sexy for an adult party? I'd need to downplay the sexiness for a regular one lol

What about if it was famous couples from history, what would you and DH go as? I tried to convince DH to go to a Halloween party as Roger Rabbit and I'd be Jessica Rabbit but he was not a fan...We've done Tarzan and Jane before Not really historic, but fun all the same.

Here is me as Betty Boop (far right)...I couldn't find a red dress so I got a black one and had the most awesome pair of red heels which I had clearly ditched by this point in the night lol.

I have a ridiculously poofy ballerina dress like a monet painting, style wise. It works for just about anything. I may not fit in it at the moment.

If you were going to a fancy dress, what would you choose to wear? I've always wanted to do a bird - like a flamingo or something.

What about if it was film themed like Daniel's party? Ooh then I might do something more fantastical like a pirate or an astronaut from some movie or other.

What about if it had to be something sexy for an adult party? I'm not into sexy costumes.

What about if it was famous couples from history, what would you and DH go as? Antony and Cleopatra?

When I was growing up I was a bunny rabbit every year. My mom had a furry costume made for me to keep me warm and she bought some extra material from the seamstress and kept adding sections on to the legs and arms as I grew. I had a really difficult time letting go of that costume.

If you were going to a fancy dress, what would you choose to wear? I have no idea! I don't do the dress thing that often (other than sundresses) but I do have a really cute black gown.

What about if it was film themed like Daniel's party? I would probably do Alice in Wonderland.

What about if it had to be something sexy for an adult party? I have no idea! Maybe, Marilyn Monroe?

What about if it was famous couples from history, what would you and DH go as? I don't know this either DH is the history buff, I would just let him pick!
