In my opinion Dapper Day is one of the best non-holidays. It combines dressing up and Disney, which are two of my favorite things. This year is the Dapper Day’s 10th Anniversary, and you can read more about how the event first started here. I actually had the pleasure of meeting the creator of Dapper Day at my first outing in 2017. Unfortunately I did not get any pictures with him, but you can see my other photos from that day, as I wrote a blog post about it.
It’s been a few years since I’ve been to Dapper Day, having last gone in Fall 2018. With living in South Florida, work schedules and then the pandemic, there wasn’t an opportunity to take part. But this year we booked a last minute park reservation to Epcot the week of and I decided why not dress up since we would already be there?
Dapper Day is fun because it’s all about reflecting your personal style. The 50s seem to be the decade most represented, but I’ve also seen people dressed in many different decade inspired fashions. Some who attend just like to dress up, while others combine Dapper Day with Disneybounding, a type of Disney fashion where people dress up in outfits inspired by Disney characters.
My personal outfit this year was Rapunzel inspired, so I wanted to get a picture within the Germany pavilion at Epcot. I felt that she would’ve loved the big poofy sleeves on this dress, and then I included a few hints of pink with my shoes and bag (aka satchel). The flower hat was a nod to the ‘magic golden flower’ that gave Rapunzel her long flowing locks.
Have you ever attend Dapper Day or a similar event? Do you also enjoy dressing up?
