Do you need fabolous Great Gatsby Costume Ideas for your Gatsby themed party?
When it comes down to finding the perfect look for the 20’s flapper girl costume, there are a few key elements to keep in mind.
• How to find the perfect Flapper Costume
After I share my tips with you, we will have you all decked out and ready to dance the night away in your Gatsby flapper girl costume!
When I’m looking for a gatsby girl costume, the first thing I look for is the dress.
When choosing my dress, I’m looking for something short!
You want something that hits just above the knees or shorter.
Keep in mind that in the 1920’s the hemlines were shorter than ever before, and the stocking-clad leg was making its first public appearance.
I want my flapper dress to be short and sassy with a bit of fringe to draw attention to my legs!
The next consideration is the style of the dress.
Art Deco was a very popular style of the day and there was a huge fascination with Egyptian style.
I look for dresses that showcase those elements for a more authentic look.
Once you find your perfect Gatsby girl dress, you want to pair it with a dazzling flapper headpiece, some fancy flapper shoes and perhaps a long string of pearls or a fan, and you are ready to party!
