Train themed fancy dressed chairty event

Options
Hi, I am going to be going to a charity event next week and the theme is to dress as underground or railway station names. Does anyone have any practical ideas. I just don't know what I can dress as which won't cost the earth!

    Sorry for the link but far too many to type out. Yet theres some obvious ones on the list. Enjoy the event and hopefully itll raise lots for a good cause. :)

    If its important to you, you'll find a way - if not, you'll find an excuse ! ~ Easy to say when you take money out of the equation!

    The one which sprang to my mind was:
    Baker Street- either dress as a baker/ chef or Sherlock Holmes

    The best one of these I ever saw was someone who turned up with a load of green felt pens and spent the evening drawing on people (turnham green). I went to the same party with three colleagues - we dressed as Abba (waterloo)

    Bond street (James bond)
    Any type of circus outfit (picadilly/oxford circus) - have also seen someone come dressed as a jar of pickles (when questioned "oh, I thought you said picallili")
    Or Bank (stick monopoly money/bank leaflets on yourself)

    Have fun! cel x

    Public appearances now involve clothing. Sorry, it's part of my bail conditions.
