New Dapper Bound: Captain America Stealth Dress

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.

Dress is from Grace Karin on AmazonBelt is from Amazon.  Foam shield from Disneyland park.  Shoes are my DIY saddle shoes, which you can get instructions to make your own here.  For DIY for the star and bars for the dress, click here.

Cap himself said that he had never worn that uniform so well, so he liked it!

Spidey also loved it, and asked if he could “borrow” my shield.

Captain Marvel also loved the look and really liked the idea of comfy saddle shoes!  I also crossed universes and went to Batuu!

Please enjoy the pics and send us pics from your Dapper Day.  We love to hear from you!

Until next time…

Love, Kim and Benji

New Dapper Bound: Captain America Stealth Suit Dress- DIY Instructions

For my latest cosplay, I put together a look for Dapper Day of my favorite Captain America suit, the stealth suit.

The dress is pretty easy to put together.  I found some iron-on transfer paper at a craft store.  With that, a star-shaped cookie cutter and a straight edge, I was able to create the stealth dress.

When choosing your star, make sure you choose one that is good scale to your body.  Then you will need three stripes on each side, again, keep an eye on the scale.  The stripes end at the arms at a 90 degree angle, but are diagonally cut to fit close to the star.  The lengths also vary, with two shorter stripes on the top and bottom and the longest in the middle.

Here are some reference pictures for you:

Here is a shopping guide for the look:

Outfit of the Day: Creature From the Black Lagoon Dress

Our latest outfit of the day is my new Creature From the Black Lagoon from Unique Vintage.  There is also a men’s button-down shirt version, but unfortunately Benji’s is on backorder so we can’t show it to you in this post.

The dress and shirt are made from a super soft stretch taffeta.  The print on the fabric is super bright and really beautiful.

Taffeta holds its shape really well, so I actually did not even wear a petticoat with the dress in these photos.  I wore it to Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, and the day was pretty warm, so I was grateful to leave the crinoline at home!

I also was lucky enough to pick up the classic monster handbag in the photos from Rock Rebel at Son of Monsterpalooza.

Outfit of the Day: Captain Marvel Leggings

Our next outfit of the day is my new pair of Captain Marvel leggings from Etsy.

20190913_115504I love these so much!  They are screen accurate, nice thick spandex that passes the bend-over test and has a nice bright print printed on them.

20190910_154216My only complaint is that they are a little short-waisted.  I wish that I could hoist them up a smidge higher.  They would stay in place a bit better.

20190910_154305These are size-inclusive, going up to a 5xl.

20190910_154241My shirt is from Lane Bryant, my boots from Amazon and necklace from Hot Topic.  Barbie from Target.

InPlainSight.style’s First Couture Meet-Up

The kiddo and I recently hosted our very first (first of many, I hope) couture meet-up at The Federal in North Hollywood.

We had a great time!  I was recently inspired by the Lolita tea houses all over the world where Lolitas can meet up with each other in their favorite looks and hang out, inspire each other, take fun pictures, etc.

I wanted to widen the scope of the invite to include all kinds of geekery, so we put in the invite that there were no dress-code rules; wear whatever you want.  As you can see, we had some great looks sported by some awesome ladies:
