Thanks for that, it jogged my memory...I have a dress which is incredibly similar, just in black-and-white, which I could get away with wearing; I'm not sure how serious everyone will be about the costumes and as I'll have my boyfriend as Spiderman next to me, I assume people will know who I am. As I said, my hair's already red, which isn't a problem in that case (and I can tease out the curls to make it simply wavy). I guess the colour change is cheating in a way but it shouldn't matter since it's been late notice.
Any suggestions for props etc. though? Make-up tips for her? I can't think of any right now, but...if anyone could, I'm still open to suggestions.
Thanks for your help,
