To celebrate its 21st anniversary in 2007, the company presented the book 21 (a photographic journal of Capasa’s career), a version of the Absolut Vodka bottle dressed in black vinyl with images of two catwomen, the Alfa 147 C’N’C 21 (a limited edition car costume), a unisex fragrance called ‘Costume National 21’, and a line of luxury sneakers under the name ‘Costume National Active’.
I did this costume with some friends awhile back. I was Babe-raham Lincoln (thanks for the idea Wayne’s World). There was also a “Grover Cleavage" and “Teddy Ho-sevelt” in our group. We wore short skirts, menswear pieces (like vests, ties and hats), and facial hair… of course. We also had name-tags with our sexy president names on it. We also had two guys with us dressed up in drag as first ladies (Jackie Ohhh and Barbara Bush, natch)
What's the best costume for Halloween
What colors were popular in the 1970s
Maybe you're a little ambivalent about how modest you want to be? Obviously, you don't want to grab something that looks like it was hanging in your grandma's closet, but you also don't want to choose something that's a little too revealing. This women's flapper costume brings together the best of both worlds! It features a modest scoop neckline, along with a tank top style on top, all while upholding a sassy 1920's flapper outfit. It hints that you’re the type of woman who's got a good head on her shoulders, but also isn't afraid to get a little adventurous! It's perfect for any party where you want to keep it PG-13, but still don't want to compromise your curves.
While the major ruling families of the Seven Kingdoms set the fashions that their own followers wear, the royal court at King's Landing is where rivalries are played out between political factions from the different kingdoms. Thus, characters who have great influence at the royal court will become popular trendsetters, resulting in minor lords, courtiers, and even handmaidens imitating their fashions. Conversely, as characters lose influence at the royal court, fewer courtiers will imitate their fashions (it's not that different from school rivalries between social cliques, with the most influential being the ones who ultimately set the fashions). The primary example of this in the TV series is that during Seasons 1 and 2, all of the courtiers in King's Landing imitated Queen Cersei Lannister's clothing styles. As a carefully planned development by Clapton, however, as Season 3 progressed more and more background courtiers started gradually switching to Margaery Tyrell's new fashions, to reflect her rising social and political influence at the expense of Cersei.
From the 1880s both old and modern versions of the costume were worn by performers at concerts and eisteddfodau, by stall holders at fund raising events and for Royal visits. The numbers of women who wore Welsh costume in this way was always small but its use was remarkable enough to mention in reports of such events. Some of those who wore it may have been the younger members of the new middle-class families who could afford the money to buy the costumes and the time to attend such events. Although there was only a little encouragement to wear costumes at these events, those few who did were often spoken of with pride.
