Gail Carriger in Retro 1930s Silver Flapper Cocktail Gown at SDCC

For Friday evening of SDCC I wore one of my more comfortable dresses - a late 20s style flapper number.

Because it's not fitted and I'm a curvy lady, this isn't the most flattering of gowns, but it sure is comfy. There isn't much like it out there to recommend you buy (if you see something like this and it fits, my advice is to snap it up, always elegant and timeless.) However, there are a whole lot of fun 20s style dresses lurking about Amazon these days, here are some options. If I were in the market for a new cocktail dress I'd go for one of these.

  1. The best I have seen you in is jeans in 2011, but they don't give the satirical effect your novels require.

  2. It's always filing seeing what style you decide to showcase next.
