    @Tammyjane33 Hi!! It's great to meet you.  What a fab idea, here are my answers:

    What would you dress up as and why? A green crayola crayon.  I just think they look cute!

    Have you been to a fancy dress party before? Yes a halloween one where I was a witch and for a hen party I dressed as a baby chick.  The things you do.

    Is there a buffet? Yes with lots of pastry, hummus, dips and home-made chips.

    What party food do you love? Cake, most types, but we need cake.

    Is your fancy dress costume scary? To people who are scared of crayons yes  :D

    Are there any party games going on? Pass the parcel with bars of chocolate as presents.

    Are you life and soul of the party or the shy type? I start off shy but usually become louder as the night progresses!

    What would you dress up as and why? Hmm. I think my best fancy dress is probably either my Napoleon Dynamite costume, or a PowerPoint t-shirt my friend made. They both got positive reviews!

    Have you been to a fancy dress party before? I have, quite a few times! I think they're good fun. 

    Is there a buffet? Of course there is. Every good party must have a buffet of some sort.

    What party food do you love? Crisps, or any other savoury snack.

    Is your fancy dress costume scary? No, I prefer a funny one. I dressed up as a zombie for Halloween once, which involved putting on lots of fake blood that took ages to wash off! Never again.

    Are there any party games going on? Fun (or maybe not so fun) fact about me: I actually hate most forms of organised fun, including games. I don't mind a bit of pass the parcel or stick the tail on the donkey though.

    Are you life and soul of the party or the shy type? I'm the same as Cher mostly. It does depend on who else is there though. 

    What about you @Tammyjane33

    My funny experience of fancy dress, I went to an Abba  tribute show and  got a full abba jumpsuit and wig along with the 2 people I was going with we looked fab.

    Got to the show and made a late entrance to find out of a room full of 200 plus people we were the only ones dressed up I wanted the ground to swallow me up. But justy got drunk and had a ball

    @Cher_Scope, nice to meet you, and thank you. I saw the idea on another thread and went from there.
    Dressing up as a crayon is different, I've never come across anyone in that costume before, and it sounds like so much fun!
    I've been to a fancy dress before and I dressed up as a school girl zombie and an Amy winehouse costume because people say I resemble her. 
    I'm usually chatty and can talk for England when nervous 😂.

    Hi @Tori_Scope nice to meet you.
    The costumes sound great.
    I've been to a Halloween party and I dressed up as a zombie school girl and another part where I dressed up as Amy winehouse which was fun. 
    Yes the fake blood was a pain to get off my face and it does stain alot so it was annoying.
    I'm chatty especially when nervous but if I'm with people I know well I'm not as shy.

    Hi @janer1967 hope you are safe and well.
    Your answer to the theme was great, I'd love a Disney fancy dress party. I'd love to dress as a princess just for a night 👗
    When it comes to food there definitely has to be a buffet with sausage /cheese rolls :) oh my goodness, you must have been embarrassed but at least you was a good sport and the people you were with were dressed up too. 😁

    What would you dress up as and why?
    • Probably the mad hatter! I've seen the cutest costume which is a big 1950's hat with waist coat and a big hat!
    Have you been to a fancy dress party before?
    • I have. My mum has a fancy dress birthday party every year. Each year it is a different theme. 
    Is there a buffet?
    • Of course!
    What party food do you love? 
    • Ooo can't beat some Indian inspired nibbles or homemade pizza.
    Is your fancy dress costume scary? 
    • Nooo! Not a fan of anything like that.
    Are there any party games going on? 
    • Always good to have a photo booth set up that goes with the theme. I'll be the photographer.  :D
    Are you life and soul of the party or the shy type? 
    • Shy around people I don't know.... then pretty loud when I do know people.  :D

  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Administrator Posts: 869 Pioneering
    That's such a cool job @Grinchy! It really does look great. My attempt would probably end up being some papier mache monstrosity.

    What would you dress up as and why? I'd probably turn up as Batman, because I already have a Batman onesie, dressing gown and socks, so I'm all set. Plus somebody has got to make sure everything is in order :) 

    Have you been to a fancy dress party before? I don't think I have! I'd love to though

    Is there a buffet? Always, I love a buffet, mini sausage rolls, pork pies, crisps, tuna sandwiches, pizza, and everything else. I'm hungry now :D 

    What party food do you love?  Oh, see the above :D All of it really!

    Is your fancy dress costume scary? Nah, everyone loves Batman right?

    Are there any party games going on? Yeah there's a fun game of musical chairs, and later we're going to do the conga and the cha cha 

    Are you life and soul of the party or the shy type?  The shy type, expect me to sit in the corner drinking a coke and minding my own business.

    Hi @Tammyjane33 What a great idea. I’d probably be a witch with a regency style cloak.

    @Ross_Scope, you most certainly are prepared!!

    Great idea @emmarenshaw! Would you have a broomstick?  :D
