'Cheesy' Theme Costume Party

I love a good costume ('fancy dress') party. This weekend my girlfriend and I are invited to one that has me stumped. It's theme is "cheesy". Now, I kinda have an idea in my head about what 'cheesy' is when I see it, but I must say that I've reached a bit of a dead end when trying to come up with costume ideas.

I don't want to put a lot of money into it, but am wondering if any of my foodie buddies can come up with an idea or two...

Anyone?...... Beuller?..... Beuller???

Then again, you could always dress up as Chris Angel, the Mindfreak! Now that is cheese!

Tacky Vegas Tourists




If it's dressy - buy a tux from a thrift store that's too small -- short sleeves, short pants, white socks. She could wear a tacky retro (prom-type gown - think Carrie) with big puffy sleeves, rhinestones/glitter & big hair & blood running down her dress.

John Travolta & Olivia N. John in "Grease' garb.


Elvis & Priscilla (in her wedding gown w big hair).
Still thinking.

Groucho and Harpo - is that cheesy or cheap?

Sonny & Cher

Anything that is store-bought should be pretty cheesy - it's so near Halloween - anything on the store shelves yet?

How about a cheese head - that's about as cheesy as it comes, right?

Put a sheet over your head (cut out hole for head) and stuff to make lumpy - you can be cheese curd. You'll have to tie around your waist.

Yeah, this fits my definition of "cheesy", being cheap, shoddy, of poor quality. I immediately thought of a cheap store-bought costume of some sort.

Then I thought of polyester leisure suits. Those are scarier.
