I really enjoyed going with some friends to Dapper Day at Disneyland this year! Dapper Day is an unofficial Disney parks dress-up day inspired by roughly 50′s and 60′s vintage style. I’ll definitely go again. I had so much fun just looking at people’s outfits!
Dapper Day Sleeping Beauty and her prince! A lot of people did “Disney Bound” X Vintage style outfits, which was adorable. (Disney Bound being when you do an outfit inspired by a Disney character, but not a straight up costume.)
I wish I’d gotten a photo of the front of this group, I loved the girl with the pink pill box hat and her adorable cadet blue friend. There were so many gorgeous outfits that I couldn’t get photos of fast enough!
Bert and Mary Poppins, Dapper Style!
Our group with the Genie. My skirt and outfit is loosely inspired by Anna’s traveling outfit.
Photos below (and many others) thanks to my friend Jet (dressed as Luke from Professor Layton.)
Other Dapper Day versions of Frozen characters! Hans, Anna and Elsa!
The coolest skirt ever. It’s Lady and the Tramp and she found it at Goodwill! I wish my Goodwill luck was like that!
Cleverly adding a TARDIS belt to a blue dress!
Enjoying the Blue Bayou
Dark Crystal was one of my favorite movies as a child. I wanted to show my love for the themes, details and beauty of the movie. This piece was drawn and colored by hand largely with COPIC markers and then edited in Photoshop.
I did a lot of fabric designs this year, too! You can find my fabrics for sale here.
