In regards to costume, you can let your imagination fly to the Middle East, with their mysterious costumes and sensual jewelry. But any costume will do really, it doesn't have to be anything extravagant; you can simply wear a wig or some funny glasses and a hat. Like we said, just let your imagination take charge and be as crazy as you want.
