My firend is leaving at the end of this month to go to Australia and we are having an Australian Themed party

I know theres a few obvious idea - the cork hat, Australian Celebs...but I can't think of any that I would like to wear!!

Any ideas?....

Paint spirals on your face and upper body with Tippex, wear a loincloth, you're an aborigine.

Write Abba lyrics on your upper body, you're an abbariginal.
