With that said, truly I saw Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein in the way it was intended-on the big screen! If you ever get a chance to see any classic film in a theater, I highly recommend that you try it out. So far I have seen these two films, West Side Story, It's a Wonderful Life, Casablanca, and The Birds and I have been awed and inspired by the experience of seeing them larger than life!
Goodness it was awesome! I will be spotlighting these films on another post but if you get the chance to see them on the small screen during this Halloween Season, check it out-they are an important part of the history of cinema as well as horror itself.
Boris Karloff as "The Frankenstein Monster"
Elsa Lanchester as "The Bride of Frankenstein"
My outfit for the evening was aimed at being a 1950's look but turned into a 1940's one due to my hair being uncooperative! Thanks again to my friend Sean for lending me her sweet dress---it is beautiful! I paired it with a cropped black cardigan I purchased in MO along with a black snood, red earrings, bracelets, and my vintage guitar brooch.
My hair came out curlier than it did for my 1950's hair trail and I tried everything to tame I wrapped it up in my trusty snood. Lesson learned-must get more medium size rollers! Hehe
It felt great to get dressed up again! Getting out of mama clothes for the night can be a wonderful thing! How do you feel when you get dressed up? How often are you able to do it?
