Flapper Bears

I made these Gatsby-inspired bears after watching the movie last night. I've watched the 1974 version when I was a teen (yep, I'm that old!) though I never really appreciated it then. But this time, OMG! I was totally enamoured! I love the glitzy style, the flapper costumes and .... well, everything of that era. I would love to travel back in time to the 20s and attend one of those extravagant parties, wearing a fabulous art deco headpiece.
Don't you just love the roaring 20s?

So cute! I'll have to re-see the movie too. I remember reading the book in high school and seeing the movie; I too was a teen in 1974 :)

I also love 20s fashion, although I'm not sure if I would have liked living in that time.

These are so adorable, Veronica! Yep, I love the roaring twenties. We studied the novel in High School and then watched the 70s version of the film afterwards. I didn't appreciate it back then either. Maybe if our teacher had made us cookies like yours I would have paid more attention in class. Or maybe not. The sugar high would probably have made us all concerntrate even less! I don't know if I could ever actually bring myself to bite into one of your creations ... they're all just too cute!

How cute! I do love the 20s. Bring the style back. It beats the 80s.
