Cool Costume for Women: Betty Boop Comes to Life!
I have collected Betty Boop for 35 years. I have 1,004 pieces which is decorated in 5 rooms in my home. Curtains, rugs, canisters, plates, cups, dolls and the list goes on! I decited to dress like Betty Boop at Halloween after looking around my home.
My mother is a seamstress, so she made the dress. I bought gold shoes, earrings, a white top and tights to accent the dress. My daughter is a cosmotologist, so she fixed my hair like Betty’s and done a killer job on my make-up ! The make-up took almost 2 hours with a couple of breaks. My brother is a middle school teacher, so I went to school for the children to see me and they loved it ! Some of them didn’t know who Betty Boop was, but they do now ! Every where I went that day people wanted a picture of me. I lost count of all the pictures made that day after 66.
