dear Vidyasarada,I just laughed alound when I read about your friend's idea. I have a neighbour at trivandrum, she has 3 sons. She mostly dresses up her sons as Japanese ladies, with Kimono made of saree, wig, umbrella etc. They always got the first prize.I dressed up as a tourist from abroad whe I was in the +2. One of my brother's friends made a real moustache and beard (french type) with artificial hair and I tied up my hair on the head and put on a cap. Then I put on pants, shirt and a coat and went to the college like that. Nobody gave a second glance. 2 of my friends dressed up as women, one was very fair and another was very dark like African. I had a lighted cigarette dangling from my lips- all this before our teachers. We had a great time this way and I could never forget that. Unfortunately (fortunately?), I could not click a snap then to record the great event.Of course, we walked away with the first prize.
