I wonder whether any of you can beat this ?
As an 18 year old fresh faced Portsmouth university student - I was talked in to going to a Rocky Horror show, dressed as a French Maid/Magenta - little did I know that this was a female role.
I was helped to get dressed and made up by a couple of girls in my halls of residence and went to the show with a whole group of students and enjoyed the whole experience - we went to the pub afterwards and I somehow got seperated from the others - time flew past and come 11pm - I was looking for the group that I was driven there by but was unable to find them - I ended up walking the whole 4 miles back to the halls in heels and a very short dress, as Magenta because I was out of money -  I got wolf whistled too many times to count...
I am a male !

    I once went to an abba tribute night fully dressed up in abba outfit and wig 

    Walked into the function room filled with over 100 people to find me and my 2 friends were the only ones dressed in costume wanted the floor to swallow me up 

    Got over it after a few drinks and we danced the night away

    I will never forget years ago i used to go to a light exercise group, well my first time going, didn't know anyone
    was just stretching down when i let out the BIGGEST bottom burp/trump or what ever you call yours.
    I have never been so embarrassed in my whole life - but at least it caused a titter x

    I was forced to sleep in the common room because I had lost my room key and when I woke up - the room was full of people!! 

    I had to walk around the halls of residence dressed like a tart with fishnet stockings etc looking for the bursor to unlock my room door..... 

    I did eventually find him and never went out in drag again (at least during my time at uni)

    Played ball tig in my school days and as I was kicking it trying to get another player, I miss-kicked and launched the ball straight at my teacher who had a cup of coffee and was surrounded by students who weren't playing.

    I had to sit there amongst the entire class inside as everyone was collectively told off for my mistake.

    I used to find entire class punishments so unfair

    Never used to moan though as quite often, a disproportionate proportion of the time, I was the reason for the class punishment :p
