My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 25 is here and it's a new, old film. Today’s costume comes from:
Silent movies, le sigh. Silent movie costumes, le sigh times two!
They hot a portion of the film at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in mid-city LA...
...so I went off in the hopes of getting discovered, just like Peppy! (Berenice Bejo)
The costume pieces you'll need to look just like Peppy are:
5. Wig (Mine is c/o Party City)
Lights, camera, action!
I put on my costume and began to channel my inner Peppy!
Knowing that the pics were going to be converted to black and white, I used a dress that was a light beige along with a white hat and gloves.
The ribbon that I used was purple and it was a perfect contrast with the rest of the costume.
This movie was just so charming...
...so it was so much fun to recreate this costume!
Berenice Bejo is just so lovely - I always wanted to be a flapper...
In front of the marquee...
...but my favorite sign is this one!! Been in this same spot since the venue opened.
That's all folks, from Jean Desjardin, Berenice Bejo...
Silent film starlets!
Twenty-five looks down, six to go!
