Grendel has been an avid cosplayer for many years, and has also been known to do drag. So these costumes were a piece of cake to pull together!
Everything Charlie is wearing was directly from Grendel’s closet. The wig is actually a “Greaser” wig Grendel uses for drag. Also the mustache is just eyeshadow.
The 20s flapper outfit is actually REALLY cool, because some of that stuff if literally from the 1920s! The champagne glass and the dress were both inherited from Grendel’s grandmother - it’s an honest-to-goodness flapper dress, and the glass might have even been used at the tail end of the Victorian Era! (There’s a lot of stuff in Grendel’s house like that.) The wig was borrowed from Grendel’s sister, and Grendel’s mother made the headband for Grendel to wear to her Senior Prom a couple years ago.
Also - that thing Grendel’s waving around dressed as a flapper? She’s fanning herself with a copy of The Great Gatsby!
