SHOCKING! From the New Orleans Item in 1921. It reads: "Uh, huh, knickers, and on the square too. The young women of the picture are two New Orleans girls who have taken to the feminine trouserettes as more comfortable and convenient. They are the Misses Ida Bell and Virgie Micelle. "And those are more economical than skirts and what go with them," said the young ladies who were caught by The Item cameraman as they were stepping along one morning toward the French Market. It must be reported that some of the conservatives in the old quarter of the city - those who frowned at any less ample curtaining than a hoop skirt - gasped at the sight." #knickers#neworleans#flappergirl#flappers#1920s#trousers#nola#vintagefashion#vintagestyle#vintageclothing#vintage

@beyoutybyrose and I channeled our inner flapper girls with these looks! Be sure to go check out her makeup look if you haven't yet! It's stunning! 💖
I have to say, I'm super proud of this look because it cost... (wait for it)... 30$ TOTAL!! 😱 This adorable slip dress was just what I was looking for and it was only 7$! Stay tuned tomorrow for another look at this modernized 1920s style. 💋
Do you prefer the coloured shot or black & white? Check out my last post for the coloured one from this vintage bridal shoot I did with @edenmrodriguezphotography ⚫⚪

this one i think has the most detail. i know that it doesn't sound all that interesting, but the cool thing about this cosplay is that we're painting ourselves completely greyscale (hence why we're wearing all black and white clothing). the dress i got at a thrift store, but it was floor length and too wide so i altered it to be right at the knee and to fit a little better. the pearls, gloves, and hat i also got at thrift stores; the hat is an authentic 20s hat, and so are the gloves. the pearls are tied because that is the fashion they were worn in during that time. the black trench coat is something i already owned, but i made some alterations (such as removing the belt loops and sleeve cuffs) so it would look simpler. the reason for a white AND black pair of nylons is to make my legs look grey; the makeup would wipe off easily, so the white nylons over the black makes my legs the right color. to stay in character, we are not talking the whole day and are instead pantomiming everything. however, if we need to communicate, we will have chalkboards with a chalk marker. i made sure to paint any wood part of the board black, and i took the paper off of the marker so it would be black and white as well. the shoes are the same as my belle shoes. for hair, i'm using just a cheap black wig since a) my hair is shaved and pink and b) it doesn't need to be high quality, just a little bit will be peeking out from under the hat. for makeup, any exposed skin will be grey (with dark grey and light grey contour and highlight) with typical 1920s makeup on top (i.e. super thin eyebrows, bow lips, the whole eye rimmed in black liner). if any of you know who charlie chaplin is, that's what robbie's whole cosplay is, lol. we're both big vintage fans, and we thought this would be a cool thing that we won't see a lot of.
