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:

1. Dress (Mine was old Erin Fetherston for Target, but this one totally works as well!)

2. Hat (This is a perfect bucket hat that looks just like the movie version!)

3. Gloves (I always get cheap packs of these at Target to have on hand as little gifts that I embellish!)

4. Ribbon (Use this to create a big bow to attach on the dress and another for around the hat!)

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.
