Portrait of a 1940’s re-enactment – Glamour


 Today was the one day I sooooo did not want to worry about posting as I have a stinking cold/ sore throat/chest infection and have spent much of the last 2 days sleeping..but I am very near the end of this year of posting and haven’t missed a day so far and I’m not about to let that slip! So as usual have lots of blogs/comments/emails to catch up on..

Right back to this post…


I think lots of the women go to these 40’s re-enactment because they like to dress up and be glamorous for the day.. A little example of this below.. Oh and by the way I did ask about the fur.. only one was real fur.. it had belonged to her grandmother, the rest were fake fur.

and this one which is my favourite as I just love her expression

  1. I love the clothes but I can’t be doing with the makeup! I can remember my mother and aunts doing the Max Factor makeup when I was tiny and it was so time consuming. They look fabulous though.
