2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / 40s costume party help on: April 18, 2008 07:16:28 AM
So I've been invited to a 40s themed costume party, so it's in October, but, call me overzelous. I want to get started on ideas now...
I couldn't decide between going for a army-uniform type thing or full-out Ava Gardner-style satin gown.
I was actually thinking of combining the dress with an army style jacket and/or hat, seeing as I have so much time, but I'm having trouble finding good pictures on the net for inpiration on styles, particularly what type of upper body such a dress should have. I also need pictuer of forties women's army jackets. I've found a few but none show the whole full length front.

Does anyone know any good sites for either pictures or patterns for either of these types of outfits?

All ideas welcome!

Thank for you help

Thanks  Wink I didn't use a pattern, just kind of trial and error! It ended up somewhat different to how I originally designed it cos of a case of "well that didn't work, so I'll do it this way..."

I know I'm a little late but i only just got hold of pistures of this halloween, here's me as Lara Croft, the costume that managed to get me felt up plenty of times in several hours

Though I didn't make the shorts and t-shirt,(waste of time when both were available at the charity shop for 1, the leg/belt straps and gun-holsters and armaband were all created by moi very quickly in two nights before the party

And just for good measure, here's Me, (Lara), Neil (Julius Ceasar) (a sheet creation) and Cross (Clockwork Orange) along with two of my other mates who don't look like they are in costume but trust me they had perfectly acceptable explanations of who they were

I see my costume got a little worse for wear after multiple Smirnoffs & feel-ups.

I made this dress for my little sister during this summer, based on the fact that she loves sea creatures and thinks she is a 'punk' (She's eleven.)

It laces up at the side (Not too great on the pics cos of the distortion from the pose) but actually is a pull on over the head manouvre, the ribbons are purely decorative!

The whole dress is two layers, a black base and translucent voile-type thing overlaid and gathered at the side.
The skirt is similar to a few tutu tutorials I've seen knocking about around here, then overlaid with the black fabric.

(I didn't make the leggings.)
