Does anyone know where I can buy some bright pink socks? Its for halloween you see and I havent been able to find any. Looked in every shop I could think of with nothing doing. Had a look online on ebay again with no results. Ideally looking for bold dayglo type socks.

The reason is I am dressing up as Dr Zoidberg for my annual halloween party.... No pink sock, no Zoidberg I am afraid Sad

I think there are too many steps there, Dr O... there's a great sock shop down here called Pairs, could have a look next time i'm in town and go postal if you've not had any luck up there...

Panic over. Managed to find a pair on ebay by fine tuning the search. Ok the fine tuning involved not looking for pink socks and instead looking for "Teddy boy" stuff but it worked. 3.99, pair of florescent pink socks on its way to me Smile
