Fancy Dress Ideas: 70s Oscar Couples

Fancy dress parties are a lot more fun to prepare for and to attend when you go with a partner and you have worked on developing your costumes together.

If planning your costume for a 70s costume party, why not take on board some of the ideas from this article and get dressed up as one of the hottest couples on the Oscars circuit during the 70s?

Three of the top ideas are as follows:

Burt Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor
Paul and Linda McCartney
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward

If any of the above ideas for 70s fancy dress couples take your fancy, then the rest of this article can help you to achieve a perfect fancy dress match of your chosen couple in a few simple steps and without having to necessarily go to a fancy dress store. (However, fancy dress stores can be incredibly useful when wanting to find that finishing touch that will make or break a costume and turn an unknown nobody into a living, breathing celebrity before your very eyes).

Burt Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor
To achieve the optimum replication of this hot 70s couple, you will need to do the following:

This 70s couple needs to be hot and dazzling from top to toe. Both are glamorous to the core which needs to be the main focus of your costume if opting to carry them off well.

Burt Reynolds at The Oscars would only ever arrive in a tuxedo of the highest quality. It would need to be black with a waistcoat that had a slight print to distinguish it a little from the suit jacket. The shirt must be a crisp white and there must be a handkerchief in the left pocket to match. The final touch would be the Reynolds moustache, which could be purchased at a good fancy dress store to make sure that it looked real.

Elizabeth Taylor’s dress should elegantly reveal her bust line, her hair should be worn up and dyed as dark as possible. It would be important in this fancy dress costume to wear a pair of fantastic high-heeled shoes and perhaps a dash of fur somewhere along the way. However, the most important element of this Taylor costume would be to wear some sparkling diamond jewelry. Fake jewelry would need to look convincing and for this it might be better to go to a fancy dress store.

Paul and Linda McCartney
The costume for this 70s couple should be a lot calmer and less flashy than the Taylor and Reynolds combination.

If going to a 70s fancy dress party as Paul McCartney, a white suit (or at least something light in color) with a black shirt placed underneath it is a must. The collar of the shirt should be large and visible over the jacket. It would be really important to wear your hair long and to get over to a fancy dress store in order to find a Paul McCartney moustache that would finish your costume off in style.

Linda McCartney needs to look soft and flowing. She needs to look like Mother Nature, but a Mother Nature with cash. Soft whites and creams, mixed with soft materials like furs or silks, for example, will help to carry off this costume idea well. A pretty headpiece would set off the outfit nicely; something with dainty details would be best.

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward
Elegance and grace and effortless sex appeal is what is needed to pull of a 70s fancy dress costume based on this famous couple. They are a difficult couple to replica!

Paul Newman should be dressed in a black suit, without a waistcoat as this would make him look to old, which would only have one button to fasten the jacket. This style of jacket would add length to the costume and show off a lot of the crisp, white shirt that should be worn underneath. Make sure that a black bow tie is worn and some quality cuff-links are included in the make-up. Finally… don’t forget to give that hair a good chop. Newman needs to look clean-cut all the way.

Joanne Woodward would look great in a 70s cut mini-dress made from a 70s print material; something which has a big and bold pattern of shapes in different colors. Her hair should be worn high to accentuate the length and elegance of her neck and face. Make-up should be natural and jewelry very low-key. Invest in, or hire from a 70s costume store, a pair of elegant platforms in the color of your choice to finish the look off well.

Enjoy getting dressed!

What’s great about this company, it’s not only selling you products but also invites you to join the company and enjoy a share of its profits. STEMTechs mutual relationship with you is based on the fact that there are two different types of individuals. The first type are the ones who work hard all their life and save little while spending the better part of their life working for others.

The Sensuous Chef’s Salad – Another Libertarian Pleasure

Life offers many sensuous experiences. Listening to your favorite music–sipping a glass of fine wine–indulging in an ecstatic sexual experience are among the many sensuous pleasures of life. The making and consuming of a chef’s salad is part of enjoying an erotic and sensuous day. And sensuous pleasures are among the many Libertarian Pleasures an individual can enjoy.

The Chicken Breast or Steak Fajita Meat

About 2 to 3 hours before the actual making of the salad you begin preparing the meat. Hopefully you’ve already thawed it out.

Cut the chicken breast or steak fajita meat into strips. After you complete this you will put the meat in a storage bag marinating it in some fine wine. If you are making the chef’s salad with chicken breast you will let it swim in chardonnay. If you are making it with steak fajita meat you soak it in Cabernet sauvignon. Now put it back in the refrigerator.

During the next few hours you can engage in some sensuous activities with you partner or listen to some of your favorite music while sipping wine.

The Next Step

One to two hours later you can begin removing the rest of the ingredients from the refrigerator. I recommend using red leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes or tomatoes on the vine, black olives (large), cucumber and a red onion. Of course you can also add zucchini, radish, celery, carrots, croutons, hard-boiled eggs, etc.– or a different type of lettuce. Stay away from iceberg lettuce because it is almost all water and no nutrition. For simplicity we will stick to my original recommendations.

Place these on the kitchen counter and let it all sit at room temperature for about an hour. In the mean while you can go back to your other sensuous activities.

The Preparation

Find a large glass bowl and a sharp knife. I start preparing the lettuce by tearing it into portions that mix well and are easy to chew.

Next I cut the cucumber into eleven even slices. I then halve the slices. You can quarter them if you prefer. I toss them into the bowl.

The next step is cutting the red onion. Since it is desirable that you cut the onion into perfect rings, this can be rather tricky. Pay attention to what you do and cut slowly. The thinner the rings the better. With practice you will succeed every time. Toss them into the salad bowl. I prefer anywhere from seven to eleven rings.

I then add about eleven large black olives to the salad. I prefer whole uncut olives. Isn’t this getting exciting? Your other sensuous activities have probably whetted your appetite. The salad in the making is taking on a whole new dimension. You are creating a work of art and enjoying another sensuous experience.

I prepare the tomatoes last. I place them on a dish and gently run hot water over them for about 10 minutes. The water must be barely running. You don’t want to damage the tomatoes.

The heat of the water brings out their flavor. I remove the plate from the sink and cut the cherry tomatoes in half. If I’m using tomatoes on the vine or garden-grown tomatoes I slice them into 12 pieces. I use eleven cherry tomatoes or one large tomato. I sprinkle salt and pepper on them and let them sit for about 10 minutes.

By the way if you are cooking for two, double the amount of ingredients you use. If you are cooking for three, triple the amount. I’m sure you get the idea.

The Cooking of the Meat

While the tomatoes are soaking up the salt and pepper I fire up the skillet. To keep things simple we will make this chef’s salad with the chicken breast. I dump the marinated chicken in the pan and slowly cook it. You should cook it for about 45 minutes to an hour.

I return to the salad, put the tomatoes in the bowl and cover it. I remove the salad dressing from the refrigerator. I believe Newman’s Olive Oil and Vinegar is the best. If we were making the salad with Steak Fajita meat I would recommend Newman’s Balsamic Vinaigrette or Good Season’s Classic Balsamic. Use whatever you prefer. However, stay away from fat-free dressing. You need the correct balance of fats, proteins and carbs. Anyway–the whole fat-free philosophy of good health is a myth.

Place the bottle of dressing on the counter. We want the dressing to be cool and not too cold, so the taste and texture is perfect.

During the time the chicken is slowly cooking I listen to some more music and sip the chardonnay. Every ten minutes or so I turn the chicken strips over and pour some more wine into the skillet.

The aroma of the chicken basking in the chardonnay and slowly cooking drifts up to your olfactory nerve. The sight of the salad in the bowl is a visually stimulating experience. You are going to be indulging in another sensuous, erotic activity.

Finally after 45 minutes or more of cooking you turn up the heat and give the chicken its finishing touches. During this time you cut the chicken into smaller bite size pieces. This is easy to do since it is quite tender. The chicken has been seared to perfection. It is ready to add to the salad. You have prepared your Sensuous Chef’s Salad with love.

The Taste and the Indulgence

You pour the dressing on the salad. You take that first sensuous bite. Your sense of taste and smell are activated to their fullest. You savor every bite. Life is one Libertarian Pleasure after another.

You have experienced quite an erotic, sensuous day. Your emotions soared to the heavens listening to your favorite music. You allowed the taste of the wine to delight your palate. You tasted the sensuousness of your partner–the love of your life and you topped all of this off with the Sensuous Chef’s Salad.
