Roar Into the 20's

This is a great costume for both yourself and other people that you may know who are looking for time pieces like this. Buy two and go as a matching pair at friendly haloween parties.

extremely useful review
I bought this lovely little number for a family member who just fell in love with this piece. I have been debating whether or not to buy this for the year that I have been a member of the Eden community, it took the full year to commit to this piece because the person this was bought for kept changing her mind both for and against the piece. Once I pulled this out of the box she fell in love with it once again (go figure). The sizes are SM and ML which is a bummer for us larger gals who would die for something like this (me being one of them).

This came in a plastic bag attached to the plastic hanger, inside it contained the dress, headband with feather, cigarette holder (fake), plastic beaded necklace, and the cheesy opera length gloves, a smashing ensemble added together, or even using the seperate pieces to finish other outfits.

This is made from nylon, satin, and spandex, a bra will be needed because there are no wires, boning or any other forms of support. As lovely as this piece is, it did have one flaw (just one). As I carefully pulled the dress out of the bag, my finger went through a hole where the sewing machine missed part of the back that connected to the sleeve. A simple few stitches will correct that, nothing that I can't deal with.


The front of the dress is silver and has lines of silver sequence going from the top down to the bottom of the piece, the back is a solid black piece (nothing special there), and circling all around the whole dress is a circle of fringes for that shimmying effect as she walks.


Measurements are:
Cigarette holder: 10" in length
Head band and feather: 6" wide upstretched 11" stretched, and 1" long. Feather: 9" including the little bit being held on the headband.
Necklace is 27" in total length.
Gloves: 19 1/2" upstretched. With very little stretch, for those of us with larger arms.
Dress: 37 1/2" long, 16" wide, 18' stretched. the fringe itself is 7" long.

The person I chose to model her dress is an acquaintance of mine and she was thrilled to show it off.
Follow-up commentary
I'm glad this was bought, she just loves it even more so than her other costumes. She'll be wearing this to a Halloween party.
