    Yeah so my imagination isn't all that great when it comes to things like this, so I thought I'd turn to the lovely people of the boards for some ideas and would appreciate any and all ideas!

    The theme: Come dressed as the title of a song

    I've had various ideas and noted them all so far as being crap or unworkable. Any ideas? Please bear in mind that it's on friday night and I own the bare minimum of props. Can shop for clothing tomorow night prehaps, but I'd rather not have to get anything expensive just for one night!

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!...

    Get some Blue Wooly yarn/string/rope, wrap it around yourself and go "Tangled up in Blue".

    There's a song by the Replacements called "Til We're Nude"... that should require the bare minimum of props.

    Write "SUE" in big letters in the blank space.

    And there you have it.

    Buy a haggard Superman costume and paint it yellow. You have Donovan's Sunshine Superman.
    you could always borrow some womens clothes and be "Little Queen" from Heart XD

    Hmmm, I just took a look down my CD collection
    "Butchered at Birth"
    "Burn My Eyes"
    "Bladecatcher"

    ...I'd better sit this one out and let someone else answer.

    Get a small cardboard box and some kids plastic handcuffs paint the box to look like a house, then attach the box to the hand cuff and the handcuffs to you. (house arrest- brian adams)

    Or

    tape sweets to your clothes and take a jar of sweets (candyman)

    Excessive but amusing: Cover yourself with slime and bump into people a lot. "Icky thump"

    Less messy but more emasculating: Wear a dress. "Dude looks like a lady".

    An easy cop out: Wear a hat. "Leave your hat on"

    If you want to make a mask: Make a featureless mask with no mouth or nose, just eyes. "Eyes without a face".

    Have fun with it, there's plenty of creative options.

    ah cool question.

    You should dress in your most favorite comfortable clothes, then when asked what song you are say, "come as you are" by Nirvana.

    really, what could be easier?

    These are all good suggestions guys, keep 'em coming!

    Current front runner for my own ideas is digging out my school blazer and covering it in pictures of celebrities - 'Old School Hollywood' by System of a Down...

    Dress as a phone with 867-5309 on the display.

    Or even easier, dress all in black. Back in Black by AC/DC. Or stay on the AC/DC theme, get a pair of devil horns and some bells. Hell's Bells.

    You could get some cardboard and tinfoil and go as "Mr. Roboto", or as a "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", or carry along a pole resembling a street sign with no words on it, and be "Where the Streets Have No Name". Dress in a suit or cover yourself in toy knives and be a "Sharp Dressed Man". I suppose you could go as a preacher and encourage people "Don't Stop Believing", carry an umbrella to protect you from the "November Rain", or a swimsuit and sunglasses to be one of "The Boys of Summer", or some kind of hippy cop member of the "Karma Police".

    The possibilities are endless.
