Egypt, 1924, and archaeologist June Digger has made the most incredible discovery of the century. Friends and luminaries have gathered to witness her findings but before anyone can say “Tutankhamun”, June is found dead, killed with a poison dart shot from a blowpipe. This was no curse, this was murder! Host your own party to find out who snuffed June’s candle!
Ageing Beauty Queen (she’s only as old as the man she’s feeling!) Costume Suggestions : Your flowing, Greta Garbo-style locks compliment your stunning red evening dress, but the smell of cheap perfume and your fake jewellery somewhat spoil the picture. You spend most of your time with a champagne glass in one hand, calling everybody ‘darling’, and flashing your stockings at anyone who looks like a film director.
Rival Archaeologist (she looks great raiding tombs!) Costume Suggestions : Your tight navy blue t-shirt and khaki shorts make you ready for tomb raiding action. Hiking boots and big socks might not sound very sexy, but they look great on you, especially when you’re leaping around. Finish off the ready-for-action look with fingerless gloves and a weapon of your choice.
Government Official (he has to oversee everything!) Costume Suggestions : Wearing a pale suit and Fez hat, you’re the epitome of Egyptian officialdom, especially with your narrow moustache shaved through the middle. You’re often seen making official notes with your clipboard and pencil and you always have a pair of binoculars to hand if you need to take a closer look.
Tomb Bodyguard (he’s got his eye on the family jewels!) Costume Suggestions : Having trained in the lost art of karate, your favorite uniform comprises black silk pajama trousers, bandana and a large gold chain. Your big muscles are accentuated by a dark tan and you always carry a sharp weapon to intimidate the tourists, just in case they were thinking of stealing anything.
Belly Dancer (she sheiks it for money!) Costume Suggestions : As a bellydancer, your dress code is designed to show off your best feature: a perfectly flatstomach. You wear bright sheer fabrics and every inch of exposed flesh is covered with gems and gold chains that make music as you move. You never wear shoes so you can show off your painted toenails.
English Lord (he’s got one foot in the grave already!) Costume Suggestions : Tweed suit, pocket watch and monacle make you the picture of British aristocracy. Every now and then you set your cane down so you can cough into the handkerchief kept in your breast pocket. A large bulge in your trousers conceals your much-abused cheque book, kept close for any investment emergencies.
Egyptian Princess (she’s Egypt’s biggest assets!) Costume Suggestions : Your luxurious gold-threaded Egyptian gown complements the headdress, necklaces, beads and bangles you are covered with. Your flowing black hair is braided in places and covers your voluptuous bosom, but the thigh-length split in your skirt is longer than the Nile!
Egyptian Guide (he’ll get you from A to B quickly!) Costume Suggestions : Your well-worn sandals and dusty white robes hint at your occupation as a local guide. And if that wasn’t enough, your backpack, compass and folded map are a dead giveaway. Glasses and moustache complete the picture.
