I’m going to a friend’s Halloween party next month. Everyone will be in costume, and it’s been soooo long since I’ve even thought of wearing a ‘costume’ anyplace.
I decided to go as a “Flapper” – 1920s Charleston dancer!
This is what I’ve put together:
Sleeveless black dress, not mini but above the knees
Long fake pearl necklace and dangling earrings (thrift shop)
Black pumps (3” – ouch – but I can stand them for a few hours)
I’m going heavy on the makeup, bright red lipstick
(No false eyelashes – I just can’t deal with those)
Red nail polish – something I never wear
But the piece de resistance
is something I found yesterday:
I bought a black wig I found at a strip-mall wig shop for $22.00. I tried it on and “modeled” for a few people. They went nuts! Said I should wear it all the time.
Chin length, tapered at sides, bangs. I love it!
The only thing I need is a head band with a feather, and a boa (!) if I can find a cheap one. Maybe a costume shop?
