The SS Titanium has launched from New York on its maiden voyage and the specially invited passengers prepare to celebrate. But, before the first cork can be popped, disaster strikes. Captain E Slost is found overboard, floating on an iceberg with a bullet in his chest! You are invited to join us to help solve the mystery of the “Murder on the SS Titanium”
Austrian doctor (if you start to choke, he’s one handy bloke!) Costume Suggestion: Even off-duty you wear a white coat over your suit to remind people you’re an esteemed member of the medical profession. Your thick-rimmed glasses and bushy beard are clues to your enormous intellect and you always carry a stethoscope and prescription pad so you can treat people wherever you go.
Adventurer (she’s flying planes and hanging from trains!) Costume Suggestion: You’re ready for adventure in your trademark grey slacks and bomber jacket. Goggles and a white scarf thrown casually around your neck complete the look. You always carry a map of the world so you can chart your next adventure and, for some reason, a scale model of your plane, the Pink Peril, is never far from your side.
Showgirl (she’ll shake her thing for a small shot of gin!) Costume Suggestion: Your stage costume, consisting of a sparkly leotard and little chiffon skirt with fishnet tights and heeled tap shoes, should ensure you get noticed by any passing talent scouts. You carry two large feathered fans with which to practise your favourite routine and wear bright pink lipstick to accentuate your Cupid’s bow lips.
Silent film director (… !) Costume Suggestion: You wear a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and brown trousers. Your trusty film camera is slung over your shoulder on a leather strap and you always carry a megaphone in case you need to issue any emergency directions. Greased back hair, a pencil thin moustache and a cloth cap tilted jauntily to one side complete the look.
Mystery writer (only a criminal could plot this well!) Costume Suggestion: You’re never seen without your trademark stylish tweed skirt suit and sensible shoes. Neither would you dream of leaving the house without pinning your hair into a tight bun and perching your small glasses on the edge of your nose. You always have a notebook and pen to hand for jotting down important plot points.
Wealthy widow (the weaker the pulse the more she’ll convulse!) Costume Suggestion: You are the picture of elegance in your flowing peach crepe dress, decorated with a single pearlencrusted brooch. On the chain around your neck hangs a locket containing a photograph of your dear husband Xavier, who is never far from your heart. You are rarely seen without a cocktail glass in one hand.
Rich Arab (educated and wealthy his investments are stealthy!) Costume Suggestion: You’ve rejected the traditional robes of your country in favour of a modern business suit and bow tie. However, you never remove your crown in public. Heavy gold chains, gold rings and a solid gold watch also prove you are not lying about your affluent background, whilst carrying your country’s flag reminds you of your roots.
Plane designer (he can’t keep anything up for 30 seconds!) Costume Suggestion: In wire-rimmed spectacles, bow tie and braces, you’ve got the look of an inventor to a tee. You carry a tape measure and a pair of compasses to help you design your latest contraptions and a pencil is always safely tucked behind your ear. And, of course, you never go anywhere without a spanner.
