If there’s one thing we know around here (other than weddings!), it’s flapper costumes. Or more accurately, flapper dresses, since we kinda sorta feel they should be worn for any and all special occasions and not reserved for Halloween and costume/fancy dress parties alone. But whether you’re in the market for a 1920s costume for Halloween, or a gorgeous vintage style gown you can wear again and again: we’ve got you covered! Take a look.
First up, here are just some of the gorgeous flapper dresses currently available at Deco Weddings beloved sponsor Unique Vintage:
They offer a variety of styles and price points, with dresses in the less expensive “costume” realm as well as beautiful hand-beaded gowns that will stand the test of time. They’ve also got lots of accessories for any 1920s costume, from shoes and bags to wigs and the all-important hair accessories:
P.S. If you want something a little scarier than just “flapper girl”, be sure to check out this zombie flapper makeup tutorial! (Not for the squeamish)
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the fact that we’ve got several gorgeous hand-beaded, higher-end flapper dresses for sale in our Art Deco Shop, as well as links to some others around the web:
Surprisingly (or maybe not), Amazon actually has a fairly wide collection of art deco dresses and flapper costumes in the “costume” price range (i.e. under $60). Can’t speak to the longevity of these dresses, but some of them certainly look stunning:
And finally of course you’ve got your classic Halloween shop finds at places like HalloweenCostumes.com. These dresses may not be hand-beaded, or feature the detail that some of the others do, but like Amazon’s selection they’re typically lower-priced, and there are some great finds there as well.
