My face still hurts from smiling for so many hours.  Today was my first time at this incredible  Jazz Age Festival and I can’t help but be angry with myself for not attending in the past.
Equipped with my Pentax I was determined to shoot some portraits as I knew the ladies and gentlemen would be dressed to impress, and was I right.
But before I post those photo’s in the next week or so (you know, I have to finish the roll, develop the film, scan… that whole deal) I wanted to share some digital ones I snapped throughout the day.  Most are candid so unfortunately I didn’t get to chat with the folks (get their names etc.) , but you will get a pretty good feeling for the day’s festivities.  Hope you have as much fun looking at these photos as I did taking them.

One of the most entertaining parts was watching the pro’s get their dancing on.

 

These next two couples really impressed me not only with their moves but with their time period authenticity.  Especially the lady on the right! she really looked as though she had stepped out of a time machine just in time for the party.
 

 

 A close second were the actual performers at the show. There was an entire dance routine and solo jazz singer with a whip.  And a 1920’s bathing suit fashion show.

 

 

And because this is a fashion blog at the end of the day, here are a couple of beautiful style detail pictures.
 But you should check back for the full portrait series for some serious styling babes and lads.
