    Um... the Gay Alien from Outer Space look! icon_biggrin.gif

    Y'know... the ones popularized by Glam rock.

    Or seen Velvet Goldmine? Although... it's a bit too Oscar Wilde-ish. icon_razz.gif

    Think 'new wave' and the 'new romantics'.

    here's a girl vid fashion example (if you're going in drag)


    and here's one you can browse though with pics, if you go as the guy you are!

    Have fun and give us a pic of you in whatever you decide on.....this should be interesting!

    You can also wear extremely tight metallic pants or pleather. With some colorful shoes. Over sized sweater(Its probably going to be hot) soooo, just get a neon shirt bigger than your actual shirt size and have it hanging from the edges of your shoulders.


    Wear BIG false eye lashes.

    Body GLITTER GLITTER GLITTER GLITTER!!!!!!!!


    For your hair.You can just put it in a faux hawk or get those spray on hair dyes.

    Wow.

    Thanks for the ideas guys...

    I have to admit, I was hoping to get away with not wearing any gold lamé, or similarly shiny fabric, but perhaps it's time to embrace trashy disco, along with intense face make-up and, of course, the mullet, topped with a nice, excessively colourful, bow tie.

    I was also thinking of researching some boy band fashion from the same era...any suggestions?
