I once attended a friends university ball as one of his guests and for some reason I had an Austin Powers outfit in my car. When said friend saw the costume he thought it was great. Now, being an end of term ball the idea is to dress smart in a suit, tux or similar. See where this is going? I actually dared my friend to go to his annual university ball dressed in an Austin Powers costume. Not that big a deal you may think but bearing in mind that it wasn't actually fancy dress and that chances are that he's be the only one there in such a costume made the choice that much more daunting.
Eventually he bottled it and took off the blue velvet trousers, cravat and blue jacket and went dressed as boring as the rest of us were.
