What are the best “Wrong Party” costume ideas?
The best wrong party costume idea is what ever makes you cringe.
Think of something you don’t particularly approve of, something that makes you uncomfortable, or makes you laugh at, not laugh with.

Wrong could be poorly fashion styled, or it could be morally out of sync with the current norm, wrong could be a belief, or a behaviour.
Think of someone, a politician or actor, someone in the public sphere who has done something you consider to be “wrong” and take on their sense of style.
“Wrong” may show poor style because of a lack of effort, or it could be an excessive expression of effort, or poorly matched accessories.
How about skin coloured knee stockings that show below the hem of your nanna skirt?
Think about all those fashion faux pas that make your skin bristle with discomfort, or laugh with embarassment when you come across them, like teenagers who wear their pants below the fullness of their bottom, defying gravity, taking funny steps so the pants don’t fall all the way down to their knees from the weight of their studded leather belts. Now, for dorky old me that seems wrong, but for some people it’s cool to show off their bum in their underpants.
Tuck your skirt into your tights, or wear too tight leopard ski leggings.
Take all your favourite clothing and accessories and wear them together.
Or channel a particular style and take it to maximum expression.
Dress older than you are, or younger than you are, somehow make it inapropriate or over the top.
The last time I picked a costume out for a “wrong party” i thought “this is the perfect chance to wear a blonde wig over my long dark hair.” you know, as if the hairdresser had gone overboard with the bond tips or something.
It’s a look I tried on just for fun one day and stored the idea in the back of my brain for the next opportunity.
This “wrong party” was the perfect opportunity to finally be a bogan, and with least effort in the preparation department.It takes a lot of effort to twist my hair into little buns and squeeze a wig over my big noggin. Leaving my hair out underneath the wig saves me half an hour of my life.
How about teaming a too tight T-Shirt that says “sweet candy” with a baggy flannel shirt, and either some tight leggings and sheepskin mocassins, or some saggy baggy tracksuit pants.
Except, where do i find sheep skin mocassins and worn out old tracksuit pants? I didn’t have the time to go searching op-shops about town, I had to use what was in stock.
Perhaps a short black PVC skirt?
Hot in the right combination….Not, with the wrong combination…

Then a lady came in and hired the wig I wanted to wear, but never fear, another wig came to mind that worked even better because it was even worse!
The whole costume took an about face. Rather than being a trashy bogan, how about being a trashy glam?
Why not glam it up a bit, picking items that are all so hot, that together they just look wrong. Why not just put it all on?
This is what happened.
I added a boofy blonde wig and plonked it over the top of my already long boofy brown hair, and some stilettos, for some added glamour and height, like i need it.
Oh yeah, “YOUR BOYFRIEND SAYS HI” is totally WRONG, for sure!
The funniest thing is when you put an oddly matching outfit together and wear it with the attitude that you are the “Bomb” That’s when it really strikes a funny cord with people.
