Roaring 20s Costumes

Gangster OutfitRoaring twenties costumes depict the free-spirited lifestyle during the 1920s. Known as the jazz age by many, this era has been a fascination for thousands of people during the past twenty years.

Once the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed, mobsters quickly realized that it was a lot more profitable to provide alcoholic beverages to a demanding public than it was to bully people into paying for protection. Banning alcohol fueled our desire for these beverages making the mafia increasingly popular.

This increased demand gave rise to the popularity of bootlegging, which is just a fancy way of saying that alcohol was smuggled into the country; often from Canada or Mexico. Mafia bosses and their henchmen would then resell it at popular speakeasies (i.e. elicit nightclubs).

As the power and prestige of mob bosses continued to increase, America was introduced to a few of the most notorious gangsters ever known. Al Capone, Jack Dragna, Micky Cohen, Lucky Luciano, and Bugsy Seagal were just a few of the more famous mafia bosses.

This year, consider dressing in one of the always popular roaring twenties costumes? Men, you will look handsome in a pin striped suit, prop Tommy gun, and stylish fedora hat while you ladies can easily find a sexy gangster costume to fit your inner personality; whether sexy, sweet, or a little of both!

 Be dangerous and unpredictable, even if it is only for one night of the year!
