20s Characters - Who Do You Want to Be?
When men needed a cigarette in the 1940s, they probably purchased them from cigarette girls. These girls with their wavy hair, shorter skirts, high heels and dark stockings wore bright colors to attract attention so they could sell their cigarettes, which they carried in a narrow box in front of them. Put a unique angle on your Roaring 20s costume, with this Cigarette girl outfit.

baby." - Cori Dials in Cigarette Girl
Corsets were thrown out the window in the 1920s, and women embraced loose dresses with no sleeves – called flapper dresses. They knew how to flirt with high heels and dances that gave their dress hems enough lift for showing off a bit of leg. As a flapper, you'll be the life of the costume party!
- "Who wants to go to town?" – Daisy Buchanan
Most people think of Baby Face Nelson and John Dillinger when they think of gangsters in the 1920s. But there were plenty of women you can portray. Bonnie Parker of Bonnie and Clyde, Ma Barker, Madame St. Clair and Virginia Hill are just a few who loved to break the rules of society for money.
- "Whooee! A man with a record!” Bonnie Parker from Bonnie and Clyde
We still talk about the stories of gangsters from the 1920s and 30s thanks to movies and legends that haunt cities and buildings across the country. The names of John Dillinger, Al Capone and Bugsy Segal live on, which is why people love dressing up as gangsters for costume parties and Halloween.
Quote – "I rob banks for a living, what do you do?" – John Dillinger
You can take everyone back to the days of Frank Sinatra and Fred Astaire when men wore dashing tuxedos and carried stylish canes. If you have the talent, feel free to break into song and dance – but it's not necessary. Remember to be on your most gentlemanly behavior with a lift of the top hat for the ladies.
Quote – "Here's looking at you, Sweetheart." – Frank Sinatra
Marilyn Monroe, born in 1926, became known as a sex symbol with her pouty lips, soft voice, feminine shape and bodacious blonde hair. She made news as an actress and even by simply walking down the street. You'll make the same news when you show up at a costume party dressed as this icon.
Quote - "Well whatever I am, I'm still the blonde." – Marilyn Monroe

Gangster vs. Police Officer
When you go out for Halloween or perhaps attend a cops and robbers party, consider dressing as a gangster bad guy from the 1920s. The stories of these law-breaking men and women are legendary, and you'll certainly make a statement when you show up to the party dressed like Al Capone.
Parties also need the good guys in blue to be present when there are “robbers” around, and you can dress as a shield-wielding officer of the law sworn to protect the citizens of your community – or at least the party you're attending. Spend the evening standing proud in your uniformed costume.
