Hello all. I'm currently the only active moderator on this community. Due to LiveJournal's newest Terms of Service, I will be leaving LiveJournal.

I have moved the community over to Dreamwidth, and it can be found here at theflappers (As of 3:00PM Central time on 7 April 2017, it's in the process of being transferred over to DW; please allow a day or so for all the posts and comments in the community archive to show up.)

While the community will remain up here on LiveJournal, it won't be active and I may not be around to moderate. Please contact me if you'd like to be a moderator, or if there are any issues here on [livejournal.com profile] theflappers now or in the future. You can find me at agent-mimi over on Dreamwidth.

I am a new member and just wanted to stop by and say hello. I love things that are old-timey, and am glad to have stumbled across this community. I love flappers/their style. A lot of my shuffling (LOL, yes, I just said shuffling) is inspired by flappers and their moves. =^_^=

Long ago I made myself a tank top, inspired by flapper dresses, it was awesome...I wish I still had it!

Maybe I'll make another! :D

“The Flapper awoke from her lethargy of sub-deb-ism, bobbed her hair, put on her choicest pair of earrings and a great deal of audacity and rouge and went into the battle. She flirted because it was fun to flirt and wore a one-piece bathing suit because she had a good figure … she was conscious that the things she did were the things she had always wanted to do. Mothers disapproved of their sons taking the Flapper to dances, to teas, to swim and most of all to heart."

Zelda Fitzgerald, “Eulogy on the Flapper”, Metropolitan Magazine (1922)

In 1920 Olive Thomas starred in a movie called 'The Flapper' about a schoolgirl that gets in all sorts of trouble.





At the time she was promoted as a 'baby vamp' - a youthful version of Theda Bara's vampiress characters
