Every year the same event happens. Every year people from all over unite to celebrate the traditional holiday called Halloween! This is a time to forget who you are in real life and become someone, or something else. There is candy, trick-or-treating, festivals, haunted houses, and parties. The only problem is trying to figure out what costume to wear for a Halloween party. One option, for a woman, is to choose one of the many classic and sexy gangster costumes available online.
One of the most recognizable female gangster costumes is the 1920’s flapper costume. These outfits were named after the traits of the type of woman who typically wore them. These women were called actually called flappers. They were sexy young women. They dolled themselves up and smoked and drank and just wanted to live life to the fullest. They were a favorite to actual gangsters looking to have a fun time and a welcome relief to the mainstream ideas and restrictions of what a woman was supposed to be.
Really, finding a great flapper costume is in a way a tribute to the ladies who originally were the epitome what this era was. Of course, not all of these girls wore the same dress every day, but it was a very popular style. The best part is the fringe or feathers that are on some of the dresses because it moves as you dance. Sexy gangster costume ideas range from just wearing the basic dress or completing the whole look by adding accessories.
The accessories to go with the dress are the best part. They make what you are wearing truly unique and help you make your own look. Most women who dressed the part of a flapper back in the day had a new style of hair. They liked it short. Add a wig and you too can have this look. Picture it with some long beads around the neck, heels with a strap, and maybe a hat or a headpiece with a feather in it. This would give you a classic look. However, try spicing it up a bit with a long cigarette holder, gloves that come just to the elbow and stockings that go mid-thigh with a garter that holds a fake gun and you have a sexy gangster.
The most important accessory you can have to compliment your look is to actually bring a partner in a gangster costume. If you do this, then your sexy gangster costume look will definitely be complete. You and your gangster are guaranteed to be the center of attention wherever you go.
