Robin Hood & Marianne,

quite easy to put together, go around second hand shops and look for a gold bronze or green bridesmaid dress and jig it around a bit, thin gold curtain tassels are good for a sash. You can pick up cheap fancy dress wigs (if your hair is short) Make a wreath for your hair with silk flowers.

Robin is easy (I dont mean Tights lol) if your good with a sewing machine you could make a green tabard (brown or biege long sleeve top underneath) for him and a triangle hat with a feather in. brown cords or something similar. Normal working boots and a couple of brown leather belts around his waist and across his chest. To finsih buy a kids bow & arrow set.

Can you tell I like the new series mmm he`s cute.

I love fancy dress! Always like to go all out for it. We went to the NYC Halloween Parade last year - photo here of us in our hotel before getting the subway across town to the start!

One person had a great idea we thought quite original - that was to go as his MySpace page.

Another theme that was popular was the old iPod adverts - sillouette of a person infront of a coloured background. Wear black and have a bit of coloured card behind you.

I always like the idea of Gordon Brown and Tony Blair ... both in suits, but Tony has a knife stuck in his back.

Good luck!

Mat

Hi just a couple more ideas,
Greek gods & goddesses (white sheets - lots of fake chunky gold & gold belts).
Fred Flintstone & wife - animal fake fur (you can even cover an old pair of shoes) you can also buy rubber bones from joke fancy dress shops & messy tatty hair.

Dr Who & his side kick............
Cowboy & saloon girl..............
you have got me on one now. We used to go out every new year in fancy dress its just something that is done around here the pubs and clubs are just full of it - your odd one out if your not dressed up.

You could be peter pan and him Tinkerbell.
Or you go as a man and him as a woman then you can just pick up clothes from a charity shop or swap.
