Some links & such for musing about costuming to Inferno.
The seven deadly sins as illustrated by Erte (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ert%C3%A9): http://www.wikiart.org/en/erte/by-series/the-zodiac (misfiled by wikiart under “Zodiac”).
You can see a sketch of the Erte-inspired Lust costume I’m making here: http://evenghostandhorse.tumblr.com/post/98922914558/leotard-nude-gloves-black-stockings-nude-with
I also think Pride and Wrath are particularly good inspirations.

Suggestion: rather than dressing directly as a sin, select a character from history or literature that you associate with said sin, and dress as them with a twist that makes your association clear.
Alcoholism. Going to get a drink without asking if I also want a drink. Not buying me a drink. Making me a bad drink. Causing me to spill my drink. Too much or not enough ice in my drink. Cutting in front of me at the bar. Ordering a drink at a crowded bar and then just standing there instead of moving out of the way. Lowly or poorly tipping. Getting so drunk you pass out in the McKittrick lobby (there’s always at least one, usually female, generally before midnight). Running out of champagne.
