    I have been invited on a work nights out with my new company.

    I start on Monday and on Friday night, we apparently have a fancy dress night out.

    Now, I'm bordering thinking this is a wind up, could be wrong, but need to cover all bases.

    So, the theme is Movies/TV, I need some ideas people!

    What can I wear which isn't to far out there, so if it is a wind up, I don't look to much like a complete plank.

    One of the fancy dress parties I went to, I went as Jackie Chan from the movie Gorgerous. Light beige loose trousers, white tee-shirt and boxing mits (good thing with those is that you can take them off and put them in your pocket :) ). Not that famous, but you can go around town afterwards...

    Thanks for the ideas chaps.

    I could go down the route of James Bond, Men in Black, but thats a bit too predictable.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of Rick Moranis

    Don't go, or turn up late with a good excuse and no fancy dress (although you had a killer one planned, honest!).

    Dark Helmet?

    Neo from the Matrix - long black coat and shades. Has the added bonus of looking cool.

    I once got dragged to a medieval fancy dress party by my wife (we weren't married at the time). This all sounds like fun and games until you realise I lived ten miles away, with no access to a car, and couldn't afford a cab (student days). I told her time and time again I wasn't getting on the bus dressed up in medieval costume but she wouldn't have it. So I turned up on the night wearing jeans, trainers and a fleece (it was cold) and told them I was a 'traveller from the future'. She wasn't pleased... but learned then and there that when I say I'm not doing something - I mean it.

    Doesn't have anything to do with your plight but I thought it was worth sharing anyway :)

    Does the photo you're attempting link to have hotlinking protection? it isn't showing up, the link does show up in the email notification of your post and does work when you click on it.

    Jeans Tshirt and a body warmer type affair and you have Kaunu Reeves again - but this time Circa Speed.

    Or Jeans Tshirt leather flight jacket and aviators and you have Tom Cruise circa Top Gun.

    The other option is to go like one of the cast for 300 and just say, "what do you mean fancy dress - I dress like this all the time." :biggrin
