Dapper Day

  This was our second Dapper Day event.  We like to stay true to the vintage idea, so Joanie sewed her dress and we spent a lot of time collecting accessories and extra props to make our outfits accurate and complete.  No Dapper Day ensemble is complete without gloves, hats, a parasol and jewelry for the lady, and a cane, a tie or ascot, special shoes and a camera for the dapper gentleman.

 This was our first Dapper Day.  We had looked online to see what it was about, but we weren’t sure if we would fit in, or how many people would be there.  To our delight, not only did we fit in, but we got tons of compliments on our outfits and there were literally thousands of people attending.  We were even asked to be the center of one group photo!

Again, back to EPCOT.  This time it was not near as crowded as the event the previous fall.  The weather had cooled down a little bit from the day before, and we chose to dress as more of a 50’s couple traveling around the world.  We even had two ladies dressed as Pan Am stewardesses help us along the way.

Epcot

 April in Florida can be extremely hot.  This day was no exception.  We chose to use our outfits again from last November because EPCOT had been so very crowded, hardly anybody saw us.  So we fit very well on Main Street and the decor of Magic Kingdom.  The characters on Main Street were particularly fascinated with us.  Because the day was so hot, we stayed in buildings with air conditioning and in shady places a lot of the day.

  EPCOT for Dapper Day was a bit of a challenge.  It coincided with the last day of EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival, so the park was very crowded.  We chose to do a 1918-ish theme for our clothing.  Looking in thrift stores and flea markets for clothes and accessories has become great fun by this time.  Ray designed and sewed his own vest,  Joanie sewed her outfit and together we created Joanie’s hat, we found an inexpensive umbrella and covered it to make a proper parasol for Joanie and she made spats to match her dress.

Our group we love to be with had set up a day after Dapper Day. People fly into Orlando and stay a few days. So why not get together and have some fun. The weather was still great and people bring more than one outfit to wear. We had some music and little dancing and of course spinning quickly and lightly around, especially repeatedly. Known as twirling.  So here are some pictures of our friends’ Garden Party at Epcot.
