When it comes to clothes, hair and makeup we are not seeking a historically accurate re-creation but more like a film set in the 1940ies. We want to encourage 1940s inspired underwear and sleepwear. But it is not a requirement.
Many of the inmates own lipsticks because it was a common gift to receive though the postal service (we recommend strong red lipstick, which was common at this time). Other makeup products were also easy to post to the inmates. The inmates would dress up extra nice for the evening when the more physical work was over. The wash room upstairs will be out of game so hair care products and make up does not have to be in time appropriate containers.
