    The Future of DCA Costuming...

    So since the "big announcement" yesterday, my mind has been swimming with thoughts about what the new costumes for DCA will look like. In my google research as to what was being worn in 1920's LA, i came across alot of square, flapper-esque dresses which wouldn't look too flattering on anyone. So does anyone here have an idea as to what could fit into the parks new theming for the entrance and Cathay?
    Carsland will be easy, a standard mechanic jumpsuit type outfit. And Paradise Pier has the victorian era carney costumes.
    So what do you think?

    Perhaps misters in the turnstiles will subtly alter guest's perceptions of what is attractive through fast-acting pheromone therapy?

    Hmm... I have no idea what this would look like, or if there is such a beast, but I imagine older-style usher outfits. That might be too Tower of terror though.

    things back then were definitely more conservative on the dressing stand point on the sense of collared shirts and ties and such...

    I'm pretty sure that two CM's can be seen in the Carthay artwork, in the bottom left corner in front of the trolley. They look like photopass guys.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    In the Carthay artwork, there is also a movie premiere set up in front on the theatre with lights, classic limousine, and the 'stars' dressed to nines for a movie like premiere.

    this seems to be more ..apropriate than having every female cast member be in a flapper costume.
    edit: and the men can wear suits or this with the hats shown here

    I can't see what's unattractive about flapper wear. It's not flattering to anyone beyond stick-size, though, unfortunately.

    Lol that would be kinda strange. I can't picture giving my ticket to someone dressed from the past while wearing my mod jeans and t-shirt

    true-but not every woman from the 1920's was a flapper- another pic (it's too big to put here so here's the link)http://www.dupontbooks.com/DecArts_f...hingTennis.jpg

    I'm thinking that the entrance shops costumes will be somewhat like Tower of Terror designs or the ones that they wear in MGM Studios. That is pretty much the most comfortable style you can find from that time period.
