A crossword costume from a guide to creating fancy dress ensembles, France, 1920s. Crossword puzzles were a major fad at the time, so this is less nerdy in context than it looks. (The hot gamer girl of 100 years ago?)

@erinbee No one can pull off a hat that boxy. 😋

@erinbee The 1920s equivalent of all the goose/groundkeeper/wimpy striped-jumper boy costumes this year

@acb I didn't see a single goose this year! (Did see a lot of adults dressed as Mario, Luigi, and Kirby around here, though. And the kids are into branded Fortnite stuff and Minecraft still.)
