1920's Glam and Photoshop Fun!

I think one of my favorite costumes is when my husband and I dressed as a gangster and a flapper.  I found everything at the thrift stores.  His costume consisted of black pants, black shirt, vest, white tie, and dress shoes (which were actually golf shoes.)  My dress was transformed from a 1980's beaded dress.  It originally had the big puffy sleeves and was way too short!


I removed the sleeves and added satin cap sleeves, replacing some of the original beaded trim.


  I cinched up the front hemline just a little and then added a flared satin skirt to the overall length.  


The hats were also purchased at the thrift stores (although they were new items.)  I added feathers and a vintage brooch to mine.

The pictures that were taken that night at the party had poor lighting and boring backgrounds.


But, with a little photoshop magic, it's like we just went back in time to the 1920's!
