    Next month my year group are holding a leavers party and it's going to be fancy dress.
    My first idea was to go as V from V for Vendetta, but I thought I didn't want to be in a mask all the time so atm the is idea is to go as Mario and Luigi with a friends but it's not certain yet.
    I don't want to have big bulky stuff on me or something that will make me sweat constantly.. Also it'd be pretty good if it's something I could make easily instead of having to buy the costume.
    Any ideas?

    EDIT: Oh and it'd be good if it were well recognisable aswell, so that pretty much rules out all anime characters since anime isn't really popular where I live, and it also rules out a lot of games since there aren't a lot of gamers around either [​IMG]

    If you want fancy, try Dracula from Castlevania.

    Go in your normal clothes, and if anyone asks you who you've come as, tell them that you are the Narrator [​IMG]

    Or you could always go cheap. Just wear a surgical mask, a bomber jacket and carry a fake knife. If anyone asks what you're supposed to be just say you're a bushwacker (a millwall fan).

    Go as a Fed.

    Easy outfit. Black serious suit, mirror shades, ear phone piece and you constantly look like you are trying to be intensely observant. Works for either gender too.

    If you really want to freak people out, you can always go princess peach!

    Otherwise, buy an afro, fake sword, bathrobe and flipflops to go as the Afro Samurai!

    You used to be able to buy HG costumes like everywhere (back when he was super popular).

    Granted I don't walk into costumes stores here anymore, but my favorite karaoke place has the hat and the vest, for anyone intrepid enough to buy it.

    In any case, I don't know if it's a difference in British English and American English, but a fancy dress party here is a formal occasion. We'd call this a costume party. And I'd just go as Mario & Luigi.
