Thanksgiving Break: Part One

Benji and I had a fantastic Thanksgiving break this year!  LA was hit by a massive storm for much of the weekend, so instead of warm butterbeer at Universal, we saw some movies out and watched some of our favorite holiday movies as well.

For Thanksgiving Day, we continued our new tradition of going to Medieval Times for dinner.  We had a fantastic time!

Medieval Times has a new show, with a twist, so I will say no more, but it was a lot of fun!

So glad we bought two photos, so we could take a nice one after the goofy one:

The day after our dinner adventure, we went to the new Funko Headquarters in Hollywood.

The headquarters is a store and also full of endless photo ops.  Admission is free, and we cannot recommend going enough!

Here is a photo of the map and also a photo of a special limited edition print they were selling…

Here are a couple of photos from the day.  In our next post, we will post the rest of them.  Enjoy!

Little John Dapperbound

The other day we broke down Benji’s Robin Hood dapper look, and now it is my turn.

I went to Dapper Day as Robin Hood’s bestie, Little John.

Disney’s Little John is my favorite Disney character.  I love his sense of fun, positivity, loyalty and justice.  I know that is a lot to attach to an animated character, but he made quite an impression on me as a kid.

Here is a reference photo:

Now, let’s break it down using the Team Build Checklist:

The Leader

The Leader for this bound would be the bear ears.  I decided to go with a Mickey ear headband, but with brown ears because, bear.  I also got really lucky and found these custom-made ears by To Never Neverland on Etsy.  These ladies have tons of great ear headbands for every character imaginable.  Please check out their page.  The headband is also super comfortable.  The little feather detail was just perfect.

The Brick

My “supersuit” would be my dress, the foundation for any Dapper Day look.  This dress is from Unique Vintage.  The petticoat is from Amazon.

The Scientist

My trusty DIY saddle shoes.

The Exotic

Little John’s outfit is pretty simple.  Green tunic, shoes and hat.  The best detail to let people know I was bounding Little John was a money bag.  We found these perfect purses on Amazon.  I actually added jump rings, removed the strap and attached the purse to my belt to create a fanny pack of sorts.  The belt is from Amazon as well.

The Blaster

There really wasn’t any special make-up or hair needed for this bound, but because it was Dapper Day, a red lip was the perfect finishing touch.  My red lip is MAC in Ruby Woo.

I hope that our latest bounds got you inspired for Spring Dapper Day!  Hope to see you there, and happy shopping!

Love, Kim and Benji

You are Invited!

Benji and I would love to invite you to our very first meet-up event!

If you are in, or can get to, the Los Angeles area, please join us!  Details below:

InPlainSight.style’s First Geek Couture Dress-Up/Meet-Up

Date: August 31st

Time: 1pm until 4pm

Where: The Federal NoHo

5303 Lankershim Blvd, North Hollywood, California 91601
* Just an FYI, that The Federal is a bar, but also a restaurant, so feel free to bring older kiddos. Benji will be there!

What: Inspired by the Lolita casual meet-ups popular in Japan, I decided to create my own casual geek couture meet-ups where we can wear our latest outfits, chat, meet new friends, take a lot of pictures (The Federal is particularly Insta-worthy), snack and have lovely beverages. If you have time, please come join us! The rules are, there are no rules. Wear whatever you want, cosplay, bounding, pin-up, rockabilly, goth, whatever you want. I would love a RSVP so I can give The Federal a head’s up, but not required. There is no cover, but if you could make at least one purchase or a drink or an appetizer, I’m sure the bar would appreciate the business. We also have the added bonus of being close to Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, so you can get in some vintage shopping before or after the meet! Please feel free to forward to your friends!
