I have got dressed up in Star Trek costumes twice before. Once for a competition (I won a toaster and a fleece)m and once for setting a world record for being the most people in Star Trek costume in one place. I did the same thing in a Star Wars outfit once too.
I have not dressed in fancy dress for some times, however do not like it as I cannot sew and have no imagination for this type of thing.
I collect Salt & pepper shakers and went to a Convention in U.S. and part of it was to dress as your favourite salt and pepper shaker -the costumes were unbelievable!
Oh yes.But not to the extent of dressing up kids in a way that isn't responsible.For example, I recently saw a kid dressed like having apunch on the face and holding a banner that said 'Fought with wife'.Its all a little funny but sends a wrong message to the kids.
