Copy the look of the famous "We Can Do It!" propaganda poster with this empowering costume. Dress like World War II cultural icon Rosie the Riveter, a timeless symbol of the inspiration of wartime effort.
The iconic poster artwork by Howard Miller was commissioned by the Westinghouse Company to inspire their wartime factory workers. Originally only displayed on company grounds for two weeks during February 1943, the poster came to wider fame much later when it was rediscovered in the 1980s.
The illustration features a young working woman. She wears a denim shirt, and bandana of red with white polka dots in her hair. She holds up a fist and shows off a muscular arm, depicting the strength and resilience of workers during the wartime effort at home.
