We recently had a free afternoon, so we took our annual passes out for a spin and went to Disneyland.
The day was super duper hot, so I had to make a quick wardrobe change from what I had planned. I had planned on wearing my Red the Pirate dress from The Dress Shop, but I’ll have to take it out on the town, or land, later.
Instead, I wore my BB8 dress by Her Universe for Torrid.
This dress is perfect for going to parks for a day. I got tons of compliments on it, and even got hassled by Storm Troopers in Batuu.
Then we ran into some of our closest friends, and watched the Electrical Light Parade together.
It was a great day!
The dress is by Her Universe for Torrid. While it is not readily available, you can still find it online on Ebay. The cropped white tee is from Target and my trusty Chucks by Converse.
OK, so we got a reservation for Galaxy’s Edge coming up, and cannot be more excited!
Our first thoughts go to, “What to wear?”, naturally.
My closet shopping expedition was very fruitful, but unfortunately, none of my Star Wars pieces are available any more. So, I took on the challenge for you guys. Find a women’s and a men’s (size inclusive) Han Solo bound completely from Amazon on on Prime. That way you can get it quickly and free shipping! So, doing a little online shopping, here’s what I found. Click on each link to buy each item. Happy Shopping!
Let’s Get Building!
The Leader for any Han Solo cosplay or bound are the blood-stripe pants.
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.
As always, professional pictures by Justin Davidson Photography. Book him here. You’ll be glad you did!
A couple of weeks ago, the kiddo and I were lucky enough to attend our first Dapper Day at Disneyland!
Dapper Day is something I’ve always wanted to attend, but just never had the opportunity to do so.
A little background on Dapper Day. Two times a year at Disneyland, WDW and Disneyland Paris, Disney hosts a Dapper Day event. This event has an Expo, where you can purchase dresses, shoes, gloves, sunglasses, hats, bowling shirts, parasols, etc. and then it is off to the parks to enjoy your day in your dapper finery. Visit their website here for more information.
Here are some wonderful pictures from our Dapper Day. If you got a chance to attend, what were your thoughts? Please comment and let us know. We love to hear from you!
We decided this is the first of many Dapper Days to come for us. We were super inspired. As a matter of fact, we are going to focus on more dapper inspired mash-ups with our cosplay and bounding for everyday in the coming year on our blog. So stay tuned for that!
