Nifty 50's Costumes and Accessories

The 1950s certainly were nifty, and this post-WWII era saw the birth of a music called rock n' roll, which played on jukeboxes in popular hangouts everywhere. Young people socialized at eating spots, high school sock hops, school clubs, the local drive-in movie theater or by driving around town with friends. Movies depicting this era help keep the look and ideas of '50s culture alive for generations of people, and you can have a blast roleplaying your favorite '50s characters whenever the mood strikes.

Origins of the Poodle Skirt

Many "girl next door" females of the '50s wore poodle skirts to school and sock hops (adults wore them too). But where did this iconic skirt come from? It all started when a young actress, Juli Lynne Charlot, designed and made a unique circle skirt to wear to a party. She added three poodles on leashes, inspired by ladies strolling around with small dogs. Her skirt was a sensation and the skirt style exploded in popularity. Charlot created a circle skirt business and her skirts also featured other designs such as horses, flowers or zig zag patterns, but poodle designs reigned supreme.

Poodle skirts for roleplaying typically feature one poodle design and come in a range of fashion colors. They are worn with a traditional poodle blouse or black and white striped top.

Greasers, Jocks and Idols

Men, women and kids can have a ball roleplaying a variety of '50s characters. Among the most popular are greaser guys who keep it cool by wearing jeans or black slacks, a white tee and a sleek black jacket. Sporty jocks never go anywhere without their bright letterman jacket. Or choose a bowling league shirt. If you've always wanted to be a star, transform into a '50s teen idol using any of our costume pieces.

Head to Toe Accessories

Complete your '50s look with two-color saddle shoes, cute bobby socks, satin scarfs, cat's eye glasses and other items. Greaser wigs are available to help you achieve an easy pompadour.
