reckless daughter as lulu

This year for Halloween I went as one of my favorite 1920s starlets, Louise Brooks.  I've had this photo of Louise in her Ziegfeld Girl costume framed and hanging up in my house for years so I thought I'd brave the Tutu and give it a go! here is the result...
I think there is some video of the Dime Store Dollies Halloween set but until I get a hold of that this photo will have to suffice! (me as lulu & beth as an unknown chap with a blond mustache)
