Summary[edit]

Ca. second half of the 1880's poster for Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, advertising "Miss Annie Oakley, the peerless lady wing-shot".

This shows Annie Oakley wearing two types of attire, both of which have much shorter skirts than the clothes that middle- and upper-class women were wearing in cities at that time. The length of the skirt is associated both with her sport, and probably also with the desire to present the performers as youthful. To this end, Oakley usually appeared with her hair flowing rather than "up". The foreground outfit is somewhat "dressy" (i.e. corseted), while in the background she's wearing clothes suitable for full athletic exertion. Her ankles in each case are discreetly clad in spats.
