Time Tripping, 1920's - 1980's
A couple of new pages are up on the Beauty and the Beast Costumes, Chattanooga website. We have just completed the "Buy Costumes - Adult USA Pop History" page. So you are probably wondering what that means. First, it means that B&B has WAY to many different styles of costumes to sell than will fit on one page. Therefore, the "Buy Adult Sized Costumes" page has been split into multiple pages. Each of the new sub category pages for Adult Sized Costumes will feature about 200 images. This will make sorting them out a bit of an issue for me as the web-mistress, but I'm sure it will work itself out.
The "USA Pop History" page features Popular costumed party themes from US History. Also known as "Decade Days" for school spirit week and dances, these are costumes inspired by the 1920's through the 1980's. While the Roaring 20's Flapper dresses are iconic for a short 10 year window, most of the fashions from the 1950's to the 1980's tend to blur over the edges of the decades. Much like people today did not throw out all their clothes from 2009 on New Year's Eve 2010, there is a great deal of overlap from the Psychedelic 60's to the Disco dominated 70's and then from the 70's to the 80's. When choosing a costume, never feel trapped into wearing only what someone else chooses to label as a given time period. Always go with what you like and feel free to mix and match.
