The Straw Hat Riots!

Decades before the Zoot Suit Riots, there were the Straw Hat Riots of 1922! 

Straw hats, or boater hats, have been briefly described here as an Edwardian fashion accessory.

1910s Hairdo Tutorial

This video pitches itself as being a 1920s hairstyle -- that's not totally untrue, but it's based on how Mary Pickford wore her hair, and her heyday was really in the 1910s. Still, it is an appropriate style for the 20s as well. Take your pick what era you want it to be. (Note that a marcel iron will probably get better waves than her clipping method she shows.)

Real 1915 Hairdo

My great-grandmother was so proud of her hairdo that day that she took a photo of the front and back in a photobooth, circa 1915.

Using the technique in the video at this location, here's a suitable 1910s or 1920s face using Turkish Rouge, rose/flesh powder and black liner, all over a cold cream base.

I kind of look like the lady from the Jonteel ads.
