We got to go to our second Dapper Day at Disneyland recently. We spent a day in the parks and a day at the Dapper Day Expo. For our parks day, I wore my new Captain America Stealth dress to both parks.
I recently received my new Captain Marvel cosplay from Sim Cosplay. I spent the extra money for a custom fit, and I’m so glad I did. It is a bit roomy in places, but better too big than too small. All the pieces, including the boots, are included. The quality is great, so I highly recommend working with them when you want to build a new cosplay. Click here for their website.
I’ll do a photoshoot when the heat dies down a bit, as this cosplay is warm to say the least, but until then, enjoy these quick pics!
I recently began building a screen accurate Captain Marvel cosplay (by build, I mean ordering various items, but I digress…). Part of this cosplay is going to be the “The Fonz” lunchbox and teseract. There are several teseracts available on Etsy, but I wanted to save a little money and make my own.
It is so easy, I wanted to share the DIY with you. Shopping links below.
What you Need:
Clear craft glue
Blue twinkle lights, battery operated
White parchment paper for cooking
Take your parchment paper and cut into squares that fit inside each side of the acrylic box
Take a small amount of glue and attach each piece of paper into the inside of the box
Insert the twinkle lights and turn them on
Boom! You’re done!
This is literally the easiest project ever. It took me mere minutes for finish and now I have a great prop for various cosplays. The great thing is that the little box has a swing lid, so you just open it, turn off the lights when you aren’t using them.
Our latest outfit of the day comes from Gold Bubble Clothing.
I love this Captain Marvel inspired dress! The fit is wonderful and the fabric color is beautiful with some tiny details within that are sure to get attention.
As you know, I love Gold Bubble for their beautiful printed spandex fabric selections. The cuts of the dresses and leggings are fantastic. They are size inclusive and pass the “bend over” test as well. Gold Bubble pieces also stay put all day. No tugging and pulling all day.
Gold Bubble has several different lines inspired by fandoms as well as licensed pieces for Star Trek.
I recently got to take part in my first ever Disneyland After Dark event, Heroes Assemble.
It was an amazing time! The event took place at Disney’s California Adventure park in Anaheim. All the heroes, ALL of them, were there for photo ops, which was just great. Star Lord and the Guardians had a DJ’d dance party going on. Ashley Eckstein from Her Universe was also there for a meet and greet. The park had special themed food and drinks, including infinity churros! I had a lovely boozy lemonade with red, white and blue stars sprinkled on top. Yummy!
I became a part of the collector’s collection…
BF and I got to meet Doctor Strange…
And I met Carol Danvers!!!!
Now, let’s break down the fashion, shall we!
I did a basic pin-up style Captain Marvel bound for the event. Here are the pieces:
The purse I got is from Wish. I do recommend Wish for handbags and other accessories, but I do not recommend them for clothing or make-up. The clothing sizing is sketchy as best (runs beyond tiny) and the make-up is usually knock-offs of name brands. Because of that, you can’t depend on the ingredient lists on the packaging. But, if you want a purse for yourself, click this link.
The Blaster- Hair and Make-up
This cosplay didn’t require a wig or any super special make-up. For pin-up, a nice red lip is a great finishing touch. I wear “Love Is On” by Revlon. Get yours here.
Adaptations for Everyday Wear
This one is pretty simple to adapt to everyday wear. I’d lose the petticoat and that’s pretty much all you need to do to take this look to the office or out and about.
