Got an invite to go to a fancy dress party as follows:

'Its fancy dress – Gaming Nerds vs Comic Nerds, so you can come as a gaming character, a comic book character or even a nerd'


So, wacky suggestions ahoy and for info it is adults only attendance smile


P.s the wife has already told me I can't go as a beaten-to-death prostitute from Grand Theft Auto frown

Are you taking the wife? (Do you want a suggestion of a double costume like Mario and Princess Peach for example?)

What era of gaming are you from?

Get together with 3 or 4 mates (of different heights). All of you dress like Flash and walk one behind the other in height order.

Or go as the Doppler Effect

I know, I know ... I watch way too much BBT!

Some good responses but crap at arts and craft so going to have to buy/rent it.

The guy who's it is is in to computer games hence the party - idea of his wife. Me I'm not fussed just want to not be the 9th Mario there.

Yep, with the wife who is intent on looking like a superhero slut thankfully smile

I've seen Hitman and that sounds ok - skull cap, black suit, red tie, black gloves barcode on the back of the head - job done.

What's wrong with you two? Women dressed as sluts + alcohol. What's not to like?

Less scensoredt than the life of someone who lists their occupation as "temp" though. rolleyes

Seriously, different people have different things in their lives that they enjoy. What's wrong with a bit of harmless geekery for fancy dress? I'd say it was a hell of a lot less sad than the pathetic tribalism of football fans.

Agreed. Can't think of anything to post? I know, I'll just say 'your life is st'.

What's the point?

Yep, love a bit of fancy dress, me. Last one I went to, managed to get a decent Hussar's uniform. smile
