You are greeted at the entrance by a blonde-ringleted beauty dressed in a crinoline. "You will probably know my husband better than me. We 'lived' in Victorian times. I may be the original 'dumb blonde', though there is a certain deviousness to my nature. I've kept my darling husband guessing all through our married life - well he is away so often on his heroic adventures and I get so lonely. I'm Scottish by birth and the author who created me also has a Scottish name," says the beauty. Can you guess her identity?
Elizabeth Garret Anderson
Lady Elspeth Flashman
Approaching from the left, a suave, sophisticated feline doffs a plumed hat and does a sweeping bow. "At your service," Puss purrs. "Do you know," he continues, "I was originally created in 1697, but it was in 2004 that my character finally found real fame on the silver screen. I am a star!" Which character have you encountered now?
Felix the Cat
Rum Tug Tugger
Puss in Boots
Lingering near the entrance, a rifle slung upon his back and carrying a compass, William Clark, the famous explorer and cartographer is scrutinising all the new arrivals. He introduces himself. "Along with Meriwether Lewis," he continues, "I explored the great Northwest for President Thomas Jefferson. We had some very difficult times, but which of the following Shoshone Indians came to our assistance when we most needed it?"
A tall figure accosts you. A gentle-faced man with shaggy hair, the White Knight from 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' offers to accompany you to get some refreshments.

An upside-down sandwich box
A pudding made out of blotting paper, gunpowder and sealing wax
A plan to stop hair falling off
Glue made out of old cake to keep riders in the saddle
As you approach the ballroom floor you encounter a foppishly dressed character in a powdered wig, clutching a half full glass of red wine. "Well ods bodkins I AM finely attired!" he twitters. "Now if you'd really like to know how to tie a cravat, I'll tell you. But it isn't easy, mind you. Takes all my brains. And it must be because they seek me here, they seek me there, those Frenchies seek me everywhere...!" Who is this fascinating character?
Sir Percy Blakeney
Wandering around, bending the ears of anyone who will listen to him about 'the nature' and his days with an infamous punk band of the late seventies, Avin Itoffski is doing a remarkably good job of trying to sell his character's autobiography entitled 'No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs'. Which punk icon is Avin impersonating?
John Lydon (Johnny Rotten)
Nearby, one of the oldest and most magical creatures ever to inhabit a Tolkien tale is lurking, waiting for you to identify him . His clue for you to guess his identity is a little rhyme.
"Old XXX XXXXXXXX is a merry fellow;
Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow." Which fantastic character is this?
Barely recognisable beneath a towering powdered wig, Baldricksmum adjusts her lace fichu with an expression of deep regret. "Sad but true," the old weather beaten she-dragon intoned gravely. "I've illuminated any possibility of winning a prize in the fancy dress parade; I suspect the result is a foregone contusion." What is the identity she has chosen for the masquerade party?
Holding forth at the bar is a stocky figure resplendent in a bicorn hat. One hand is tucked firmly inside his coat while the other clutches a large glass of red wine. "Of course," intones the Napoleonic look-alike, "I actually surrendered aboard ship, and not on the fields of Waterloo as is commonly thought. The ship was affectionately called Billy Ruffian by its crew, but what was its correct name?"
HMS King William
HMS King Billy
As you leave the party, a last figure is waiting to bid you farewell by the door. With grey hair and glasses, dressed in her habitual black robes and pointed hat, MaggieG 5 in the guise of Miss Cackle sets you one final challenge. "I run an academy for witches," she informs you, "But who is my most infamous pupil?"
