We dressed up again this weekend (man, we’ve dressed up A LOT lately!) for a murder mystery party–1920s filled with gangsters and flappers, guns and gambling. So I (we) spent much of Saturday embellishing my outfit and creating props. I was a cigarette girl in a speakeasy. I tacked on beaded trim to a black dress to make it more 20’s-ish, and the hubby made me a cigarette tray out of a cardboard box and ribbon (and decorated with leftover trim from my dress. I pinned some different trim in my hair to make a styling 20’s headband. (That’s me on the right.) Ooh, one quick trick I did (adapted from when stockings were unavailable during WW2), since I couldn’t find seamed stockings easily. I had D draw a line up the back of my legs with a brown sharpie, then put on regular stockings..
