Why Choose a Flapper Costume?
The 1930s has been hailed in the past as one of the most significant periods in the world of fashion, and this is not only because of the development of the flapper costume at the time. In this particular decade, fashion was undergoing a significant revolution in the sense that women were returning to a more feminine way of dressing after more than a decade of rather coarse dressing. Flappers was a popular term used to refer to the women at this time who chose to dress non-conventionally in apparent reference to the disdain that they held for what the society considered as acceptable behavior.
As such, in case you are looking for a great 1930s Halloween costume, then a flapper costume would be a very good choice. It is worth pointing out that one of the most significant fashion changes that took place in the 1930s was the adoption of zippers for actual clothes. This fact means that a 30s costume is very easy to wear as opposed to costumes from earlier decades. Generally a flapper costume is made up of a short skirt, bobbed up hair or a wig that represents the same image and the over application of makeup on the face. In fact, a flapper costume is practically the easiest 30s Halloween costume to wear and in addition, is one of the easiest looks to pull off.
Of course with a 1930s costume such a flapper costume, most of your friends, especially those of the younger generation, will not easily understand what you are trying to look like. That is the beauty of the costume because you actually get a chance to explain what the costume represents as opposed to a common costume such as a fairy or a devil which everyone knows exactly what is represented and nobody cares because there are 20 other people wearing the same costume.
