Dapper Day once again took over Disneyland, filling the park with fans' best finery.
Dapper Day occurred this past weekend at Disneyland. For those of you who've never been, it's a Disney fan event where droves show up to the park dressed in their best outfits. While Dapper Day doesn't specifically try to mimic a particular era or style, most attendees typically don vintage fashions or old-timey takes on favorite characters within the Disney universe. It's not a cosplay event, though there are plenty of nods to Star Wars, Marvel and classic Disney.
The Dapper Day Expo featured a dance floor where attendees learned how to swing dance and danced to Orange County band Big Sandy. There were also two wet shave stands, a shoe shining stand, a tin printing photo booth and a place to get your portrait painted.
There was also a Disney Bounding meetup with Disney Bound creator Leslie Kay. This involves making your own outfits inspired by Disney characters.
Dapper Day's next California event occurs in early November. Get more info here.
