Ladies Fashion Show - Compiled by Julia Bettencourt
Ladies Fashion Show Compiled by Julia Bettencourt This is not a serious fashion show but on the contrary, a whimsical form of fun. You'll need some volunteers to be your models. Choose some ladies with a good attitude, as you'll be asking them to dress in some very unorthodox clothing. The size of your event and time available will determine the number of models you have in your fashion show. Just pick out several styles that you think would work well for your group. 8-10 is probably a good limit. You'll also need an MC (master of ceremonies) to give the narration for each style of clothing.
Choose someone with good speaking skills.
Use a microphone for the narration as you may encounter a high volume of laughter as your models parade down the runway! Below are the stunning styles you will need to make upfor your models. The runway narration is listed for each. The 'Fashion Show' skit is intended for 'All' women's group gatherings only, not mixed company. Fashions are listed with Narration: A 14-Karet (Carrot) Ring A ring with 14 carrots dangling from it. Make matching earrings with one small carrot for each. Add in a necklace with many small carrots on string and matching bracelet. Narration: A well-dressed lady will add flair to her wardrobe with fashionable jewelry.
This 14-karet ring with matching earrings and necklace radiates good taste and elegance. It is not only exquisitely styled...it will make rabbits love you!
Buttons and bows Lots of buttons and bows fastened to a dress. Narration: Boys like their girl friends to be very feminine, and what could be more feminine than buttons and bows? Use trimmings like these to decorate your dress . the more, the better. Ball Gown Long gown with balls and balloons attached to it. Narration: For occasions when you need something special, a ball gown is just the thing. This dress is just like you...unique, a designer special. It's one of a kind. When you wear it, you'll have a ball!
Gunny Sax Gunny sack, with holes cut in it for arms and head.
Narration: For more informal occasions, a sack dress... gunnysack, that is... is very appropriate. You won't feel over-dressed in a sack dress; in fact, you'll probably feel like a bag. Gym shoes Shoes with "Jim" written all over them. Narration: Whether you're out gallivanting or just lounging around, "Jim shoes" provide comfort and support. Prop them on the arm of the couch when you're watching TV, or pound them into the track at school when you're running laps. "Jim shoes" are versatile... they do anything, and go anywhere.
Knee Socks Socks taped to knees. Narration: Knee socks are great for any time of year. They come in all colors and all sizes, and may be mixed or matched with any outfit. Knee socks may be worn behind, below, or above the knee... even all over the knee, as our model demonstrates here. Tee-shirt Golf tees fastened to a T-shirt. Narration: A perfect match for your "Jim shoes" and knee socks is our beautiful tee shirt. Whether or not you're into the sports craze, whether or not you play golf, the tee shirt is ~ style that's right for you today.
Turtleneck Sweater Small toy turtles or pictures fastened to sweater.
Narration: Turtleneck sweaters will keep your neck warm during chilly months. But they may be very expensive. The cost for turtle food is rising rapidly. Another small problem may be the tickly feet and slimy tails swishing back and forth on your neck. Bell-bottoms Bells sewn to the seat of skirt. Narration: Bell-bottoms are rather hard to sit down in. You may have to shift your weight a bit and change positions often, but everyone will know when you're coming and going. And the ringing in your ears will be easy to understand.
Ponytail Picture of pony fastened to seat of skirt. Narration: You may think that a ponytail is a hairstyle for people with long hair. It's really something quite different...An integral part of this outfit. Evening Dress Black dress with stars and moon made out of yellow shiny paper. Narration: What a beautiful dress to wear to enjoy a romantic evening with your husband. Look how the stars light up the evening! Tea length Dress Tea bags along hem of dress (you can also make matching earrings and necklace). Narration: This is a lovely dress to attend a tea party with your friends. Wearing this dress will be the highlight of your afternoon tea.
Seersucker Dress A dress with suckers attached to it. Narration: What a lovely summer dress just right for many occasions. Look how this dress is beautifully adorned. Of course, if you wear this dress in the heat you might find yourself in a sticky situation. Bloomers Flowers attached to skirt (a lady in our church made a pair of 'bloomers and then attached flowers to them and wore them under her skirt). Narration: "Bloomers" is an old-fashioned word. Your mother probably wore them when she was your age. Although bloomers are no longer worn today, we close our fashion show today with a charming pair of bloomers, fashioned especially for 2003 (whatever year).
