1940s-fashion

[Agent Carter] continued the color story from Captain America: The First Avenger. You’ll see Peggy in a lot of red, white and blue, as a silent tribute to her lost love, Captain America. Her trademark look is the red custom ladies Stetson Stratoliner hat, a burst of color in a sea of grey fedoras. Working in man’s world she needed to stand out, and she did that using color in her wardrobe.

The idea of Nico and Hazel wearing 1940’s clothes…well, it was bugging me for the past week so I did some fashion research, sketched them out, outlined and water colored them. I wanted them to have this old feeling, that’s why Nico’s all black and white while Hazel is sepia.

This was supposed to be a post for Halloween but haha, i finished it a tad too late XD  (I sort of used a piece of scratch watercolor paper so…forgive the missing part of Hazel’s skirt) 

Agent Carter’s signature blue suit, and her dramatic red hat (which Hayley [Atwell] noted is her favorite piece of her costume) are symbolic of Peggy’s role in society. Hayley added, “They add to the performance mainly physically, my posture and facial gestures reflecting the time: Up-right, put-together, proper, lady-like and hiding any true depth of feeling in order to be taken seriously in the work place.” (x)
