It plays well for those who aren't into going all out but want to join in a bit on the dressing up front, but it doesn't even mean you can't go in character either. Some celebrities' accessories are their calling card, you just have to put a bit of thought into your outfit.

It's the ostomy that's the thing - the bit of intestine that's surgically brought out of the surface of your tummy, through which poo escapes. Into a bag. Otherwise it would just go everywhere, and that wouldn't be nice. That would be about as disgusting as the myth of ostomies would imply.
