    So I have to go as an animal to a fancy dress party, but I'm stuck on what to go as. Anyone ever been and of course, what are people recommendations? I was thinking maybe a great white shark, getting some cardboard boxes and cutting them, spray painting them. I would like something funny or silly though...

    Stick a hump or two on your back, pin a tail to your bum and go as a camel.

    Go as a crab.

    Just be careful someone doesn't name you Geoffrey and bang your head on a counter top :(

    Go as a crab, you have no idea how fun it is walking up the stairs sideways when you're wasted.

    Get lots of glue, PVA works best.
    Strip to your pants.
    Pour it all over you (do it outside).
    Get lots of cotton wool (get the cotton wool before stripping down and pouring glue all over you).
    Pour the cotton wool all over you and shove it to the body where it hasn't settled.
    Go as a sheep.
    Keep clear of Wales & Aberdeen.

    And where is the cheapest place to buy this costume? Will I get a free ps3?

    a crab sounds fun, how would I make the costume?

    That's only round your bit, friction & cotton wool ain't the best idea ;)

    Sheep - lots of cotton wool.

    Beware of the fire hazard.

    Get a decent sized box, paint it green, cut arm and leg holes in it, get in, tape it up. Go as a turtle, if someone says you look stupid, rip it off and shout "ROAAAAAAAR, I'M THE HULK!"

    Don't eat anything for 2 days beforehand so you can go hungry like the wolf.

    My girlfriend's housemates went to one recently - one of them dressed a deer and got random sticks from the park and attached to their head (somehow!), and the other went as a fly.

    He got some wire coat hangers, bent them into wing shapes and then covered them in cling film. Made some legs out of random bits of sticks spray paint black and I can't remember what he used for the eyes, but they were painted red.

    Here's a photo -

    Go as an Elk during rutting season. You can rub yourself against the furniture, fight other males and herd all the females together before sticking them with your antler.

    But don't be surprised if you’re culled at the end of the party. ;)
