Everything was belted on the hips to make the torso look longer, and people LOOOOVED fur. Anybody who was anybody seems to have had a fur coat or a coat with fur on it.
This lady came out looking a bit like Myrna Loy.

I like this girls personality a lot but for some reason I have a hard time drawing her. She's all goofy.

I keep hitting dead ends in a lot of these drawings, that is, I feel like I keep doing the same drawing over and over again. Maybe it's because I've been looking at photos for costume reference, and pretty much everybody looks like this:
