Epic Everday Cosplay: Get All Jazzed Up Like Contrast’s Dawn and Didi


Posted December 11, 2013 by


Hey cool cats let’s get whisked away to the roaring 1920’s with Contrast’s Didi and Dawn to a world where shadows are more than they seem. Didi is a young girl with an independent and clever spirit whose mother works as a cabaret singer while her father has left the family to make it big. This leaves Didi quite lonely until she befriends Dawn, a mysterious woman with the ability to move between the light and shadow. Dawn helps Didi navigate the complicated adult world which is rich in catchy jazz tunes and a 1920’s aesthetic. Dawn’s style is reminiscent of a cabaret show; high-waisted shorts, striped tights and corset tops paired with a chiffon scarf and long gloves that scream cabaret star. In contrast, Didi’s look pairs a striped skirt, cotton blouse and red cardigan paired with some girlish socks and Mary-Jane shoes that have an innocent and charming feel.
