June 2005: Back in Time - Jazz Age!

Now, they call it the Roarin' 20s - it was an amazing time! The music was loud, movies learned to talk, the drink was illegal, and the skirts and the hairstyles were short. What would the gargoyles have been doing during the Jazz Age? Chatting with Gatsby? Running rum for the mob, or dancing in a club in Chicago? Showing off a new Model T automobile or being artistic in the Art Deco style? Do a little research and show us how YOUR favorite gargs would have been living! Styles and activities from anywhere in the Jazz Age, from about 1919 to 1938, will be allowed.

Title: Singing in the Musical
Artist: Nebulan [DA Gallery]
Whenever there's a back in time topic I think, "Where was Demona and MacBeth? They would have been alive then." So I thought, where would I be? Singing in a muscial like Singing in the Rain! So here they are! Why are they in a muscial? They probably aren't in their right mind... dealing in a little too much bootleg I guess and don't remember a thing in the morning.

Title: Marx-Goyles on the Prowl
Artist: Xany Kaos [Floppy Hat Productions]
The late 20's-early 30's would've marked the Marx Brother's reign as the clown princes of comedy, when they were not only at the height of their career, but basically reliving their adolesence and pulling every stunt they could think of. Especially if said stunt involved gettin' cozy with an attractive flapper.

Title: Prohibition Whitbourne
Artist: Artemis Prime [DeviantArt Gallery]
Poor Witless, got caught smuggling in screech Stateside. I wonder what his defense would be?
Whitbourne belongs to Dylan Blacquiere, and is shamelessly passed around like a bottle of whiskey by him, Mary "Stormy" Pletsch, me, and Jenny "Mercedes" De Salme, amongst others.
