God bless Twitter.
I put a late night shout-out for ideas on what to wear to our Scandinavian-themed Christmas party. And what do I get? A barrage of some fabulous, some downright disturbing ideas.
Bizarrely, Lady Gaga managed to make an appearance: with herring or with Danish bacon (yes, *that* dress from the music awards).
Then there was the dark Wallander and Larsson inspired 'bikers, goths, murders, misogyny, cigarettes, coffee, casual sex'.
One that made me smile was A-Ha and herring. Two of my all time favourite things.
Then there was the to-be-expected blonde/viking wench with a good smattering of vodka, beer and drunken flat-pack assembly.
The award for cutest, cleverest by far goes to Scandinavian children's tales: Pippa Longstocking, Moomintroll and Snork Maiden.
So what do you think? Do you have any other suggestions?
