Originally published in 1930, this book will show you how to create 64 different paper costumes including: floral costumes (rose, tulip, lily, daisy, forget-me-not, jonquil, old-fashioned rose, iris, poppy, pansy); slip over costumes (floral, Halloween, valentine); nature costumes (breeze, apple, butterfly, bird, bunny, bumble bee); story book costumes (peacock, bo-peep, fairy, jack and jill, brownie, balloon); national costumes (Spanish, Dutch, Hawaiian, Scandinavian, Italian); health play costumes (spring, butterfly, sunbeam, rainbow, carrot, herald); period costumes (Roman soldier, medieval, Puritan maiden, Puritan man, colonial, colonial dame, girl of 1860); special day costumes (Irish, liberty, valentine, Halloween, May queen). Instructions for accessories are also included: Puritan and Dutch bonnets, king's crown, liberty cap, wings, wigs, sheperds crook, fairy wand and flower, picture and broad-brimmed hats. There are two ways to make the costumes -- the slip over style which is worn like an apron over your own clothing and the cloth foundation method where you glue or sew crepe to the simple cloth foundation. Instructions for working with crepe including sewing guidelines, wrapping wires, wiring petals and leaves and making rose petals, strips of petals, pompons, fluted edges, fringe, crushed and crinkled effects are all detailed. During the first half of the 20th century, Dennison Manufacturing Company produced a wide range of paper products including tags, boxes, holiday goods, crepe paper, seals and labels. In addition to their paper products, Dennison printed idea books for their customers, including gala and party books as well as seven costume books, like the one here. The costume books are perfect for Halloween celebrations, school plays and local theater groups for their inexpensive, creative ideas. Sample book pages are shown at the top of this page.
