    Costumes.

    Okay so i have to go to a party in about a week. It's my friend and her sister's party. Their names are Anna and Claire and it is themed. We've been told to go as something that begins with A or C or as something from the 90's.
    I'm a little stuck. I dont want to go all out because I can't really be bothered but i need ideas.

    Cat? seems a little boring. Captain Planet - can't do that without the lame costume. I was thinking A Clockwork Orange because of the A - but i dunno how id pull that off. I'm dressing up with a friend. Circus seems to be the most popular option in my mind right now, i'd go as the ringmaster and my friend would be the lion but i dunno, gahhh ideas!?!

    he and his friend were very 90's. the t-shirt would be easy, but after that, you'd have to do a great job on the hair. and forget about any romance happening, too, i'd imagine.

    There's two of you, right? Alice and the Cheshire Cat. Covers both letters.
    I'm weary with right-angles, abbreviated daylight,
    Waiting for a winter to be done.
    Why do I still see you in every mirrored window,
    In all that I could never overcome?

    RANDOM.
    Naked except for a cigarette, you let your mind drift and forget your disbelief. Feel the chill down your back and the flutter of wings through dandelion fields, and forget the pull of gravity in a night without stars.

    I lack eloquence and commitment to my arguments. They are half baked, and I will begin passionately, and then abandon them.

    Alvin the Chipmunk comes to mind.. I don't think that'd work but the A and C came up in my thoughts

    Oh there's a book series called the Alvin Maker series, I don't know if you've read it or heard of it, by Orson Scott Card... long story. The hero is Alvin and he is a Maker because he's the 7th son of a 7th son, and his younger brother is also a 7th son, because their elder brother had just died a little bit before, anyway, the main character is Alvin and his younger brother is Calvin, so, A and C for you... Alvin was a blacksmith, it's a alternate history/ fantasy, set in the time... I think just before electricity or around that time.

    I think you should go as something from the 90s! There have to be so many amusing possibilities.

    If I had to have a costume as "something from the 90s" I'd either be Daria, or I'd be Clare Danes' character from My So-Called Life. You could be a 90s sitcom character. Or Nelson Mandela. Okay, I'm kidding about that last one, that would probably not be received very well.

    But I like the Cheshire Cat idea a lot. . . . I mean

    A clockwork orange is way better than an alien.

    I am also voting clockwork orange - the subway in glasgow
    There once was a scotsman named Drew
    Who put too much wine in his stew
    He felt a bit drunk
    And fell off his bunk
    And landed smack into his shoe
