I don't know what to go as. I really want to make a go of it, since I don't go to a lot of big parties throughout the year, and I haven't ever made a special effort for a costume party before.
Here's the brief.
**Historic Dress Code** Come dressed as a famous person, place, moment or thing from history.
So it would need to be something recognisable. If I were to host a costume party, it would be an "obscure reference" costume party, where you would have to explain the costume before someone gets it. This is not that party.
Bonus points for the costume necessitating that I grow facial hair. I kinda feel like growing a short beard as it is. Also bonus points if the person has an awesome hair-do that I could totally have a stylist do for me before the party. I'd rather do that than wear a cheap wig to be honest.
Oh, bonus points again if it involves wearing like... a waistcoat and a tophat, or something regal like that.
