For my grandfathers 74th birthday my mom decided to throw him a Bee Party. My grandfather is a bee keeper, so everyone had to come dressed up as a bee and he was the bee keeper. It was such a fun way to celebrate & get all the family members involved. Everyone came dressed up even if they only wore some bee wings.
Thinking of throwing a party? The 80’s theme is always a winner with the crowd. Something about getting into a ridiculous looking get up makes people have a 100% more fun. I found some amazing costume inspirations from Movies, Celebrities & previous party goers. Let me know what you think and feel free to share some of your 80’s costume ideas.
This weekend we celebrated a milestone, my one & only David, turned 30. I love costume parties, everyone puts so much effort into their costumes & it makes things that much more fun. These are pics from our 80’s party & inspiration from other 80’s parties, so you can have some ideas for your next gig.

In the 1920’s prohibition made it illegal to consume or possess alcohol and due to this the 20’s provided some of the most well known gangsters. A great 1920’s mens costume would be Al Capone. During the 1920’s women’s fashions changed drastically with the flapper. Flappers wore really dark eye makeup, beautiful knee length dresses & lots & lots of pearls.
Recently, I went to an Amazing Birthday Party that was held at Ave 5 Restaurant in Downtown San Diego. This place was super chic, full of original pantings, dim lit bar & an amazing coconut tres leches cake that was to die for. The theme was 1920’s & the people came to party.
Suzanne said she was a lover of all things Vintage and it shows. This costume won my award for best costume of the night. You can re-create this look with a vintage dress from Unique Vintage.com , black wig, long pears, & a fur shrug. For the makeup use lots of dark eye liner & red lip stick. Also make sure to grow to paint your nails red as well.
Black Flapper Dress Costume Idea
These girls looked amazing in their classic black flapper dresses, long pearls & long black gloves. Flappers’ behavior was considered outlandish at the time and redefined women’s roles. The image of flappers were young women who went by night to jazz clubs where they danced provocatively, smoked cigarettes through long holders, and dated freely, perhaps indiscriminately. They rode bicycles, drove cars, and openly drank alcohol, a defiant act in the American period of Prohibition. Petting became more common than in the Victorian era. Petting Parties, where petting (“making out” or foreplay) was the main attraction, became popular.
Red Flapper Dress & White Wig Costume Idea
I love the red dress, it stood out in a dark room and is a great variation on the classic flapper costume. David wore his gangster suit & top hat.
1920’s Hair Pieces & Accessories
Leticia & Ryan were the perfect examples of how people in the 1920’s accessorized. Favorite accessories were dangling earrings and long necklaces. The modern young woman, or “sexy flapper” was often seen with long gloves, white pearls & dainty little hats with nets.
