  1. ha ha so funny! I love the one in his bathing suit. That must have really shocked the audiences back then! Who knew he has such nice legs!

    1. He's very cute in THE CURE. Although in some of the bathing suit scenes his head looks too big for his body, I think it's because of his bushy hair.

  2. I have a really cool Chaplin/Tramp costume I've been using for over 15 years now. I even finally found the perfect "too big" men's black ankle high boots about 5 years ago in a goodwill store. All real clothing, no costume store materials, either. It's a hit every year I wear it!

    1. I bet it looks great! I'm glad it's all real clothing, too. If you're going to be the Tramp that seems a more authentic way to go rather than buying factory-made costume store stuff.

    2. I do too! But I cannot keep the mustache on...I think he must have used some super glue. I remember the bit where he is showing a WW1 general how he got dressed and the guest gave the stinky sign to the glue.

    3. I think he used spirit gum which evidently had a horrible smell.

    4. I find the best way to were the mustache is just to draw it on with eyeliner. You can make it as big as you want and moves with you mouth better. But if I am doing like a special occasion or something like Halloween I will wear the mustache.

  3. yes, the mustache is an issue - the sweat would keep loosening the sticky back!
