Masquerade: Costume Inspirations 1920s-1950s

Masquerade: Costume Inspirations 1920s-1950s Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gathering of colorful costumes from old pattern books, to inspire those looking for ideas to copy. The custom of dressing up in a disguise of one kind or another for balls, parties, or other celebrations is not only an ancient custom, but one that has deep roots in our minds. It provides an opportunity to live our dreams, to realize our wilder aspirations. One is, when costumed, a different being. We have drawn from our large fashion collection some especially attractive costume plates. They are from books originally published in the mid-20th century. This volume is inspirational, not instructional, though most of the costumes are readily imitated.

Synopsis:

Blue Lantern Studio provides beautiful reproductions of vintage costumes from the 1920s to the 1950s. More than 100 designs are included to inspire both amateur and professional costume makers.

About the Author

The Blue Lantern Studio creates books and stationery from its library of books, paintings, and ephemera. It believes that images and words, properly mated, create new and powerful messages.
