Default Bad Taste Costume Party - Help!

Hi - hope this isn't in the wrong forum - given that I'm talking about the antithesis of fashion, but oh well! Feel free to move it to off topic if necessary.

I'm going to a "bad taste" costume party on the weekend. I don't want to spend a bunch on a costume, so what I'm hoping for is ideas for an outfit using things I may have at home...I'm asking a lot I know .

So far I was thinking about wearing hipster jeans with a visible g-string at the top ...bad taste, certainly! Any ideas for the rest of the outfit?

Hair style suggestions are also appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Natalie

PS. I know "taste" varies from person to person, I hope no one is offended by this thread. I'm looking for funny ideas, not anything that may be considered bad taste by some and the height of fashion by others

My dad had a "tacky" party for his 40th. People showed up wearing sweatbands, legwarmers, fish ties, and the like. Mostly raided their closets for relics from the late 70's and early 80's

Sandals with socks are for me the epitome of bad taste. And maybe an overly colourful sweater to go with it?

Do the Madonna look and wear a black bra over a white t shirt. (yep just about anything from the 80's!) MJ's thriller look, or the Miami Vice look.
For your hair try the Boy George Culture Club look! (I am feeling so old right now!)

make a huge high ponytail at the side of your head! If you can give it lots of volume the more the better, hehe. And make your best effort to wear too much makeup in colours that looks garish on you, I suggest using too much bright blue mascara.

One of those long tops meant to be worn over jeans over tights with your butt crease showing.

That is all.

Lots of good ideas, thanks everyone. :flowers:

I thought I'd braid my hair finely and tightly to get a 'crimped' look, and do the high pony tail on the side of the head...

I'm thinking, lots of blue eye shadow and fluro pink lipstick, stripes of rouge. Black bra over white shirt is a good option too!

Thanks everyone!

Don't worry, I *won't* post pictures!

You could wear rollers in your hair.

And a request for a photo of your final outfit choice!

Good suggestion teacherbear! I don't have rollers, but I was contemplating putting foils in my hair - my sister was commenting recently on how odd it looks when women stand outside hair salons with foils in their hair and dressed in a big smock smoking a cigarette
