    Would have liked to pick Elsa from Frozen, Wonder Woman, and Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie. Would also pick Mina Murry from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Minnow from Planet Ripple if I wanted to get really obscure.

      Yes Amelia.

      It would be amazing to go as Diana / Wonder Woman, perhaps do a change from Diana to Wonder Woman part way through the evening which would be fun.

      Given that this option was not provided though, I would be the southern belle that is Scarlet O’Hara – corset and all. Would be even better if I got to have a ladies maid to help me dress and lace me tightly into the corset lol.

      Think this would be absolutley amazing.

    To be able to wear and look good in ANY formal gown would suit me. But I’ve always loved the look and length of dress that Dorothy wore in the wizard of oz.

    I would also go as Merida from Brave.

    Always loved curly red hair.  And of course I would try the accent out.  Which my wife says turns to someone from India instead of Scotland.

    I’d pick Penny in the early years from The Big Bang Theory.
    I still watch those early episodes whenever I can just to see Penny and what’s she’s wearing

    Was surprised that Morticia Addams wasn’t on that list, absolutely love that black mermaid gown and her sense of macabre. Yeah I am a bit twisted.

    Hi girls,

     

    Not so much “who” but “went”. I have always loved female period wear and attended Transformal, (the Oz version of Southern Comfort etc ) in 2017 wearing  my “Scarlett O”Caty” Civil War replica ball gown

    Details can be found here

    https://www.sisterhouse.net/memberssuite/transformal-was-great/#post-2854

     

    and there are also photos in my profile

     

    Happy (fancy) dressing

     

    Caty

    Definitely as Countdown’s  Rachel Riley!  from UK tv.  Phwoar!   or maybe newsreader Susanna Reid as a milf.  In fancy dress – Galadriel from the Lord of the Rings films , or Evangeline Lilley , the Elf in the Hobbit films ( her elf name eludes me at the moment).

    My all-time top choice is missing from the list: Midge Maisel – when i watch this show (Marvelous Mrs Maisel) i spend more time paying attention to her gorgeous outfits than i do story! Her daily wear is fantastic, but when she is all done up in a cocktail dress – oh i would just die to look like that!

    Ever since I began dressing, my role model and inspiration has been Daisy Duke. That’s about as formal as I ever got.

    Tough call, so many great options.  In the end I chose Jessica Rabbit, Belle & Princess Leia. Scarlett o’Hara & Dorothy were close runner ups.  I agree with others wonderwoman (&/or supergirl) would have made my list but weren’t options.  I almost went to celebrity fan fest 2018 in San Antonio as Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie Suicide Squad Daddy’s Monster version), I bought all the stuff, took it to the hotel but then chickened out.

    In all honesty, the two that aren’t on the list is Catwoman and Hela from Thor Ragnarok.  These would be my two, or even Elastigirl from the Incredibiles as my third.

    I love most all of these polls, but this one is tough for a 70+ y/o closet crossdresser. All of the ladies are oh-so much younger than I am.

    But I chose three: 1.) Elizabeth Bennet, but only if portrayed by Keira Knightly; 2.) Mary Poppins as played either by Julie Andrews or Emily Blunt (haven’t yet seen the new movie, but Emily Blunt in the trailers is enough to make my geriatric heart go pitter-patter; 3.) Belle, from Beauty and the Beast.

    Although not necessarily an iconic role, if allowed to select one of my own, I would choose Queen Elizabeth played by Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth the Golden Age — sure to be a hit at any “Fancy Dress party!”

    Alice in Wonderland – don’t really have a choice there!
    Holly Golightly – Hepburn is elegance personified, and who doesn’t want to wear ‘that’ dress.
    Daphne – looks innocent enough, but we all know what she’s really like…

    Me, of course!

    But since I’m neither iconic nor female, I picked Daphne out of Scooby Doo, followed by Cinders and Alice.

    Love those outfits!

    Hello Polly,          I choose Alice in Wonderland & Cinderella out of the choices you gave, as I like any fairytale type girls. I would choose my self, the little Bo-Peep costume [ from the nursery rhyme ] as it is really girly style.

    love,  Helenmarie

    I did my best.  I know it’s impossible to be all-inclusive with a list like this but as more of a geek/weaboo I’ve a cosplay dream-list which includes Galadriel, Yuffie, Princess Entrapta, and Michonne from Walking Dead.  But who doesn’t love Jessica Rabbit?

    This is so hard to choose, but believe it or not, I think Elle Woods would be my pick.  However, I’ll probably change my mind within minutes of posting this.  lol
