The day after our Disneyland adventure, Leyla and I went to D23 – the big Disney expo in Anaheim. We went two years ago as well, but this year we decided to dress up. We picked Tinkerbell & Peter Pan. The weekend prior I put my costume together…leggings and a dress from Forever 21, my boots, & the accessories: dagger, belt, + hat that I made. I had fun making the dagger; I used two layers of balsa wood cut with an exact-o knife, glued together, sanded down, & painted. It was fun when people recognized us, we even had a few people ask for pictures! I’m happy I picked Pan, my poses were easy!
Lot’s of people dressed up and there were a lot of really creative costumes, but the most creative one I saw was a guy dressed up as broken tea party Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. How cool is this??
I see more cosplay in my future & it will be probably be doctor who themed next time. 😉
After the expo we headed back to Downtown Disney for dinner and to make each other Olaf’s at Build-a-Bear! They’re pretty cute as is, but we both added outfits. Leyla’s has a hat and sunglasses, while mine has a shirt and sunglasses. Too cute. Our costumes were noticed more here & one guy thought I was supposed to be Robin Hood…the hat is the same but I don’t think Robin Hood hangs out with Tinkerbell!
