Don't you just love how much creativity they had, both in choosing and making their costumes!
Nowadays it is sadly reduced to witches/ghost/ghouls etc. you don't see people dressing up as 'Winter' or one of my favs from above, 'The Spirit of St Louis'!
Over at The Painted Woman blog at the bottom of the article is a list of movies based in the 30's featuring fancy dress if you want to see some in action!
Hope you enjoyed the ensemble of pics!
