Help Required

I know I have a few friends and family who lurk around here. So now I'm asking for help.

Firstly this is a little test to see if any of you will leave a comment on the site rather than sending me your comments in an email!

Secondly, I do need help:

Aaron is having one of his parties in Amsterdam the weekend after next. Aaron's parties are always awesome. But they also require fancy dress (translation for the yanks: costume party).

I am useless at fancy dress ideas. His last 2 parties I coped (Pimps & Prostitutes and Hollywood Red Carpet). This time it is Saints & Sinners and I'm a little stumped.

So, the Frog and I have to dress to impress. Criteria are:
  1. Minimal investment (max. €20 each)
  2. Minimal sewing involved (no machine & general lack of ability)

This is now in your hands...

I think Saints and Sinners is the easiest of the lot. For a Sinner, wear your highest heels, shortest skirt and lowest-cut top (if none of those apply, visit charity shops until they do - assuming there are charity shops in France). Bare legs or fishnet tights, lots of lipstick and whatever you want to do with accessories and hairstyle that will add to the overall effect. Behaviour: vamp it up. For a Saint, do the opposite: ideally a high-necked long-sleeved floor-length shapeless nightie or equivalent, or nearest offer, with a halo made of kitchen foil. Behaviour: occupy the moral high ground. Have a great time - let us know how it goes!

As a family member who would normally respond to this by e mail, I'm rising to the challenge (but not quite to the extent of creating a whole identity - next time!)
Why not think of the seven deadly sins and their opposite virtues, I'm sure you could think of a pair.
