Pics!









No this is NOT the clothing I bought yesterday! It's for the play we're working on.
Nice, huh? Sort of an untraceable older era, between the 30s and the 50s. What do you think?? [about what time-period it looks like]

love it! what play are you preforming?

Gwyniver said...

It looks mid-to late 30's to me. Just before shoulder pads of the 40's and maybe a bit after puffed sleeves? The shoes are classic! :D

Evergreena said...

It looks great! I like it a lot.

Danzibar said...

It looks like the outfits from Anne of Green Gables...the movie that I incidentally watched tonight. I like it a lot! I've always loved historical fashions...but I will admit women's historical fashions often look extremely uncomfortable. :)

Olive Tree said...

Hmmm. Maybe late 30's, early 40's?

Olive Tree said...

Go to HorseFeathers for a very special something! ;-)

Bethany said...

Thanks for the comments! :)

tinydancer, it's a play written by a few of my friends [the infamous Dallan and Eva, haha] and myself. Entitled "Two Tophats and a Spy". Great fun, I shall post more info later :)

Gwyn, oh, haha, as to the shoes, I was wondering if I should get some white or tan ones for the performance--what say?

Thanks Evergreena!

Danzibar, I love that movie!!!! [Haven't watched it in way too lng, but still...] Yes, some historical fashions are the very dickens to wear. I imagine corsets must have been rather ghastly. A lot of medieval and peasant-Colonial stuff is pretty comfortable once you get use to it.

Olive Tree, yes, that's what I was thinking. We're trying to get hold of some trench-coats and fedoras for the boys, to give the proper 30's feel.
I just had a bad thought, tho! I'm supposed to be swing-dancing in this get-up! Which can involve some fancy floor-work [where the guy and girl spin, then the girl drops to the floor and spins on her hip]. Great.
And Thank You!!! :) :)

i totally agree with you about what you said on Arwen VS Eowyn. just thought i would let you know.

Bethany said...

Oh! Thank you Lauren Anne!!! I'm glad to know I'm not alone, the A vs E-ers seem mostly Arwen fans. Did my last comment finally get published, I wonder.
thanks for letting me know! :)

definitely adore the dress! very late 30's.

Bethany said...

thanks dear! I've got a green one in the same style, we'll have to see if we can put it on one of the extras, with adaptations.

MoonShaw said...

I like the dress! And the hat. Really.

Bethany said...

Thanks Moonshaw! And gracias also for following!
