Great Los Angeles Air Raid, 2014

This weekend was the Great Los Angeles Air Raid in San Pedro, CA. This event happens every year to commemorate a strange event that happened in 1942. Was it weather balloons? Enemy aircraft? UFOs?
Whatever it was, there was a lot of gunfire happening from Fort MacArthur that night in the direction of the ocean.

My friend and I. We both made our skirts and blouses. The vest I wore was owned by a real life Rosie the Riveter who worked on Goodyear blimps during the war.

My new-to-me vintage bracelet. I love this thing so much!

And a few of my favorite shots from the event:

Unfortunately, I’m still getting used to my new camera, so a lot of my photos didn’t turn out. The focus sounds the same as the shutter! But now I know for next time :)

  1. Ditto to Cindy’s remarks. Love the photos, the costumes, and I think it is awesome that your vest was originally worn by a “Rosie the Riveter” AND your bracelet is terrific!

  2. What a cool event! You look very classy and the photos look great. I particularly love the one with the silhoetted figure and the cars in the background.
