The year 1945 - VE Day Joanie made her dress. She is wearing her mothers vintage pin on the right and a mothers star on the left. The fur hat was just the right color and the right year. The purse is a brown and tan. Her overnight or train case if from the 1950’s. Ray’s suitcase is about 1940’s or early 1950’s. Ray is wearing a real 1940’s Ike jacket that is all wool and weighs about 25 lbs. or at least feels like it. Ray and Joanie try to get it right with vintage items. We came as close as we could this Dapper Day.
The Bubblegum Wall.  This wall is located on either side of Spaceship Earth as you exit the ride. Spaceship Earth is in the big silver ball at Epcot.
Ray made Joanie’s hat and Joanie added the longer extention on top. The hat was not laying right so we had to find a way to get the top to stand up. Vogue 7464. Go online to find a tutorial on how to sew it.  Do not use the pattern instructions.
Anna, Ray, and Tim
To Gate 5
We need Gate 2
Tim got Nikki a real vintage Victory pin. Do you know what the 3 dots and the dash stand for? Anna is wearing a vintage nurse uniform, and yes Anna is a real nurse. Look at our WWII page. Joanie’s dad fought in the Battle of the bulge in Germany in WWII. We have his last unit newspaper and some photos.
Thank You for your service

Such a wide variety of eras and styles represented at the Dapper Day 2 day at Epcot!  We saw clothing from the 1920’s through to the 1960’s, and in styles from classic, to military, to nurses and stewardesses, and up to character representatives from various movies and Disney characters.  The great thing about Dapper Day weekends is that everyone is allowed to wear what they feel interprets the idea of being dapper.   
Vintage military was the theme of the day for Ray and Joanie.  We’d like to thank Weber Photography for these great photos with the vintage look to them. 
Loren and Karen have found that dressing as 1960’s stewardesses attracts a lot of attention.  Many park guests have stopped them to ask for pictures.  Often people remark that it brings back memories of flying on the airlines when the flight attendants dressed like this.  A few might even have been employed by the airlines at that time.  People don’t know how big the airline companies were at that time, and how competitive they were for the travel business.  They were constantly updating ideas for the flight attendants to make them more appealing so that travelers would want to fly with a particular airline.  TWA and PanAm were two of the top airlines at the time, traveling around the world.  With the invention of the 747, the airlines added an upper deck lounge.  This changed the concept of sitting in a seat for hours while flying overseas and made it a more comfortable and pleasant experience for passengers.
