to get back on to topic are there not any fancy dress shops that supply dark wigs, the frilly shirt wouldn't be the toughest to find and then a dark suit? it could be done.

far as i'm aware it was the frilly shirt, jacket and trousers look

That was the only thing I couldn't get when I did mine for our music dress up party for cricket, I even went to all the suit hire places and none of them had any.

You'll always find one somewhere; you just have to keep looking in the right places.

im not sure whre you live, but hot topic here in the states is selling white frilly style shirts for 25 bucks, and the wig you can get at any costume store. You can go to a fabric store to get the material for the scarf and just cut it/hem it yourself.

Thats what I did for my show, anyways.

The aim of fancy dress is to look like someone.
Frilly shirt, long hair, red hankie, these things will be recognised as Meat.
Short hair, black dress shirt, black pants, and a cowboy hat? could be pretty much anyone (in fact, the first person who came to mind was the gunslinger in Westworld even though he's bald rather than having short hair).

Only if everyone at the fancy dress party had been to a ML concert during the CDC tour.

Frilly white shirt with a red scarf/hankie and you're sorted.

Are you from the north east?! You type how I speak!

Holy thread bump Batman.

All that you need is a Black Suit, a frilly white shirt, a red handkerchief and if you don't have long dark hair, a whig. And of course being a hefty guy would help with the overall costume. You could just put a pillow underneath your shirt, but it wouldn't look right.

Start eating.

I did this not long ago and have a blouse (not mega frilly but does the job) and braces if you're interested. Failing that ebay is the place to go :)

Or you can do what I accidently did at a 2010 Meet and Greet - I went in black skinny jeans, a bright red bat-wing top and had dark brown big curly hair, I looked like Meat's mic stand!
