Everything Old Is New Again

1 Collab August_008B

Give ’em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle Dazzle ’em
Give ’em an act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give ’em the old hocus pocus
Bead and feather ’em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?

~ Lyrics from “Razzle Dazzle” from the musical, “Chicago”

In a way, I’m kinda glad I was ill for the first few days Collabor88 opened this month. No heebie-jeebies for me about getting the bum’s rush on my first attempt! I’d seen photos on Flickr of the nifty, spiffy, swanky, swell stuff in this month’s round and I was ready to go on the lam and flash some jack!

That 20’s speakeasy feel hits you from the moment the build rezzes and it carries through to the hotsy-totsy offerings. From flapper to gold digger to gangster’s moll, there’s something for every type of gal. But don’t think it feels old-fashioned – these designs are the bee’s knees.

    The black & white picture is awesome. From the pose, which is spot on, to the shadows to the clothes, everything. Awesome I say.

    I managed to get into as well and I bought some chairs and of course the Monso hair but I simply couldn’t decide on the clothes so I ended up buying nothing.

    This round is really awesome and I am sure I will be back and end up buying all I can afford hahaha ❤ *hugs*

      Oh, thank you 🙂 I just wanted to show the “old to new” with the photos. It seems like I hit the mark!

      I actually didn’t do the furniture, so I’m sure I’ll be back. I have a sitting area in my showroom I want to redo and I love this era!

      So glad you made it in…I’ll wait till closer to the close to go back and just enjoy picking out the furniture 🙂
