1920s Costume Ideas

Most people would automatically think about flapper dresses and gangsters for this particular decade, and indeed, as it is so popular, we have a page dedicated just to Gangsters & Moll costumes. However, there is more to the 20’s than just those costumes. Here are a few more costume ideas that you may decide to use for your costume inspiration and look to the left margin for lots more 1920s costume ideas:

  • Charlie Chaplin – an easy costume to put together, just wear with a black suit, one of our bowler hats, Chaplin Moustache and carry a cane
  • Harry Houdini
  • Mary Astor – go for a glamorous silent movie look
  • Joan Crawford, as above
  • Douglas Fairbanks – famous for his roles in Robin Hood, The Mask of Zorro and the Thief Of Bagdad, why not wear one of these costumes?
  • Al Jolson – not very politically correct but you could dress up in a suit with white gloves and a black up face.
