Anyone recommend one? I need some gangster shit.
come as macho man randy savage. We can be the mega powers.
I didn't really want to be Macho Man Randy Savage when I was kid. I was gonna go as Bugsy Malone, but that was only really because it was cheap on the internet. I figure I'll just see what's available, if I can find a shop in the 'burgh tomorrow.
and design the rest of your costume around that.
or something weird?
in the Grassmarket might have something.
and there's also a proper 'fancy dress shop' on the other side of the Grassmarket a bit down from the joke shop.
i'd say armstrongs would be the best bet, but also try the ones on nicholson street and by bristo square.
not nicholson street, same difference really, but yes. god my memory of edinburgh streets is non existent these days.
there are 2 (one in grassmarket, one on south clerk street). There is also a proper fancy dress shop at the bottom of victoria street in the grassmarket and one on St. Leonards road(?), near the Spice box and St. Leonards police station.
In summary, the grassmarket is probably your best bet.
Thank you all. Now I just have to find out where this Grassmarket place is.
down the hill a bit.
best directions ever
turn left past greyfriars bobby, down the hill and armstrongs is on your left at the start of the grassmarket.
Get in a cab and say 'the grassmarket please sir'.
the rusty zip.
clerk street in general for charridy shops
...just off haymarket. it's got some pre-packed outfits and shit like that. good name too.
