If you want a Halloween costume that is the bees' knees, you need to pay attention to detail. Our 1920's accessories will help make you look just someone from the era. We have a number of flapper items and makeup for you to choose from. The 1920s, also called the Roaring 20s or the Jazz Age, was a time of economic prosperity. In the U.S., it was also the time of prohibition and the rise of organized crime.
Moonshine and smuggled liquor was big business and run by figures such as the infamous Al Capone. If you wanted alcohol, you would head to a speakeasy for an evening out and some drinks. Younger women who went to these illegal clubs would dress in the latest fashions, which were much less restrictive than traditional clothing, such as dresses that allowed them to kick up their heels and dance. Women smoked cigarettes and wore hemlines that ended at the knee; both were considered scandalous by the older generation.
Our accessories include beaded necklaces, fake cigarettes and cigarette holders. Short bob cuts were popular hairstyles and we have several wigs available that can help transform you into a flapper. Other accessories include fashion boas, opera length gloves, bracelets and purses. Our headwear selections include Gatsby-style hats, turban style headwear, headbands with feathers and more. Garters, another popular risqué accessory for the time, are also available.
