rock?

I need help. I am not kidding. If anyone is left reading this, my oft-abandoned journalthing, could you help me? I have a rock-theme costume party to attend for work, and while I've helped almost every one of my co-workers and yet cannot think of something for myself. Something preferably iconic and recognizable, but not so obvious that there will be a hundred of them (Madonnas, Elvises, etc.).

I will owe you two drinks. I kid you not.

Love,
Jaime

June Carter Cash!
Exene, Siouxsie, Stevie Nicks, Cindi Lauper, Wendy O Williams, Lydia Lunch, Poison Ivy, Joan Jett, Suzi Quattro (Leather Tuscadero!), Pat Benatar, Heart, Lita Ford
I swear to god I read "rock themed" and thought it was like, rocks as in ... geological formations. I was so excited because I thought "What a random and great party idea!"

I went to a rock star party with Charlie once, and we went as Rolling Stone reporters. We even made fake press passes haha.

I second the Stevie Nicks and Siouxsie ideas, and also suggest Patti Smith.
that party was awesome. another highlight was the guy dressed as Prince, who had the ass of his pants cut out on the dance floor.
Oh or, Nina Hagen! OR, if you could somehow find the right swan dress pattern, I think Björk would be *awesome*.
wow the bjork idea is amazing
depending on how hip your coworkers are: Meg White, because she's pretty easily costumable.

whoa! i'm glad that i'm not the only one that thought this as well! hahah.

i third stevie nicks! or maybe...joan jett, or, um, oh, i'm bad at this.
Are you set on it being female? If not, here's one: blue jeans + flannel shirt tied around waist + t-shirt + long, straight, sandy-blonde wig + red bandana tied around forehead = Axl Rose. I even have a funny old G 'n' R t-shirt you could borrow to drive it home. No joke.
miss tanya and i once went to a rock-themed costume party dressed as "photographers for rolling stone." which means we glammed up, and hung out while wearing photoshopped and laminated rolling stone press passes. the end. it was actually very well-recieved!
i like the exene cervenka idea, but then, i always admired her style.
but i don't know how "iconic" that is for most people..

courtney love would be funny and scary to do, especially the latter day courtney... but i don't know if you want to go there..
