    Why no pirates? Seriously, they should not be discounted.

    Maybe you could go as a shell company/tax haven

    Panama hat, linen suit, become a plantation owner!

    Plantation owner or East India Company captain / Privateer. Avoids cultural appropriation, and despite you being the historical bad guy, no one will quite be able to articulate why your fancy dress is in bad taste and their can of red stripe and blackface isnt.

    Viv was top of my list, but cricket whites aren’t easy when you’re lanky.
    Che Guevara might work, or Ernest Hemingway.

    Can of red stripe or a bottle of rum might work but would be a PITA to spend any amount of time in, I’d probably just follow the herd and go as a pirate…

    My Mrs is going to a fancy dress do as a Rasta at weekend. She asked if I can do her hair. I’m dreading it.

    My wife went to a Caribbean fancy dress party dressed as an island.
    Jamaica?
    No she chose to wear it.

    If you go as the plantation owner and it gets a bit awkward, just tell them that you are the man from Delmonte.

    You could go as the Bermuda Triangle (and stand at the back and ting)

    Robert Burns was a plantation manager for a while. So you could  just wear a kilt.

    but if you’re  lanky people will wonder why you’re dressed as a netball player.

    Mix up and take some Pusser Painkiller along. Then to get the evening off to a start play Ibble Dibble.
    It will all be a blur after that and nobody will care what you are wearing.

    Man from Delmonte…….good call.
    “Stand at the back and ting” – is that a noise effect or are you posting in patois? The Cool Runnings would be awkward with my bladder/drinking habits. Thanks all.

    You need a chicken suit and a repertoire of exaggerated tics and flinches.

    Or maybe a chicken suit and a Jacob Rees-Mogg mask.

    Same visual pun.

    Get a tee shirt made up that says:

    Meat and potato, $2.00
    Pork, $1.50
    Chicken and leek, $1.80
    Cheese and onion, $1.50
    Steak and ale, $2.30

    If anyone asks, tell them you’re the pie rates of the Caribbean.
