Daisy Buchanan, the character from the book and film "The Great Gatsby" is a popular Halloween costume for 2013. The Flapper theme is always popular for Halloween, but this year, due to the huge success of the re-make of the film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, the generic 1920's flapper girl has a name. And it is Daisy Buchanan. The Great Gatsby was released on DVD in late August, making timing for a Roaring 20's Halloween theme perfect.
The Roaring 20's look includes a calf-length beaded dress, waved wig, jeweled head piece with feather, and a classic pump, t-strap, or ankle-strap shoe. Complete the look with accessories like a feather boa and a long cigarette holder. Odds are the average woman dressing up for Halloween won't have a couture beaded dress on hand, so all of the costume parts and accessories can be purchased on Amazon.
