Some Events

Dapper Day at Walt Disney World

Dapper Day is just a fun time to come dressed up in any decade you like. Most of the people come dressed in the 1940’s and 1950’s.  You also have the flapper dress from the 1920’s.  We have seen some very expensive clothing and some like a Pan Am stewardess.  These photos  are ours from Spring Dapper Day April 16, 2016.    Dapper Day happens twice a year, please bring your friends and look for us at the next Dapper Day.

Our other events are just a little different

We have a group we like to hang out with. They are called the Darlins and it is now spreading to California and Paris, France.  This group is of all ages but we are in the older group that join in on the fun.  What we like is they love everyone.  We think it’s so funny that a group of 20 year olds would like to hang out with us.  When I asked them why they would drive 2 hours away just to come and meet up with the Darlins, they would say this group likes to do fun things and and the people are fun to be with.  After the event the chatting starts on Facebook.  Pictures start to get posted even before the event ends and I see things I did not see during the event.  So much fun to talk with others and comment on the photos.

Garden Party

The Darlins had another day of looking good. So many people travel to the Dapper Day event and are staying for the full weekend. So the Darlins set up a day after the spring Dapper Day called Garden Party. We also plan to have a day after Dapper Day this fall, so check Facebook for where it will be. I came in a suit that I bought from the Goodwill store. The store has everything in bins and they weigh the items. Joanie and I were on the way out of the store when she saw this suit. It was my size with coat, vest and pants. So we got it. The suit is newer but the colors are specks and I know I saw the same fabric on a old television show just the other day. So we got It and I love It. Look at all the stores.  You can find something to add to what you have or, like this suit, find something that  fits.

A little Steampunk never hurt anyone.

The Darlins had a Steampunk event in February of 2016.  We had no Steampunk anything.  So Ray started sewing and learning how to put it all together.  He made his Steampunk coat and made the leather collar detachable so it would come off and the coat could be used for another event. We got Joanie a Steampunk hat at the Halloween store this October. The Steampunk group on Facebook had an event that we went to in Inverness. Fl.   It was a train ride complete with a train robbery.  There was a posse that rounded up the “bad guys” and lots of shooting to add to the effect.  They even had horses involved with the acting.
