Help me dress as a rock star for Christmas! My office Christmas party theme is come as your favourite rock star and I need ideas!

So, it's a fancy dress party and the theme is come as your favourite rock/pop star. For added excitement, it's also karaoke and there is an excellent chance we'll have to get up and actually perform as that star on stage in front of the entire company (I know, I know...I can't sing either and I hate being the centre of attention). Anyway I need ideas.

Additional information, I'm a petite white girl with long dark straight hair in Australia if it helps. It would be nice if I didn't have to spend a fortune on an outfit but I'm open to anything. Lady Gaga and the Spice Girls are already taken. I'm open to dragging in a few others and going as a group, and I'm open to dressing as a guy too. I was thinking Chrissie Amphlett from the Divinyls (Aussie band) as I can cobble together a school uniform from home, or Madonna from her dark haired Like A Prayer days but I was wondering if the hive mind had any other suggestions?

Long dark hair? If you don't mind cross dressing, put on the face makeup, and go as a member of Kiss. Instantly recognizable.

Joan Jett? "I Love Rock n Roll" seems to be in every karaoke bar I've ever been in.

Smear red lipstick all over the bottom half of your face and draw on cartoonish black eyeliner, and wear a black T-shirt and ripped jeans. Tell one half of the room you're Robert Smith, and tell the other half you're Amy Winehouse.

Dunno whether or not you have bangs (fringe), but you could wear a peasant blouse and Stevie Nicks-ish skirt and go as Melanie. "Brand New Key" is usually on every karaoke list and gives the crowd a good laugh.

Phil Manzanera from Roxy Music.
