Day 29: Lilo from Lilo and Stitch

You guys!!! Thrift Store Cosplay is winding down and I only have 2 days of cosplay left to share with you. I have really enjoyed tricking out my closet with fun, whimsical and practical items. Some of which are very specifically costume-ish and others that I will definitely get some more wear out of. My closet is pretty amazing right now!! I must admit and because everything was procured at vintage, thrift, consignment and resale stores, I feel hella good about it!!

I’m gonna be taking some polls on which were your favorite characters and such from the whole August series, so keep an eye out for that!! Also I have a giveaway going on right now with JORD Watches. I hope you’ll take a minute to enter to win $100 at JORD! Use this link: woodwatches.com/g/nerdinthesand

Day 28: JEM from JEM and the Holograms

Out of all the characters I’ve chosen to cosplay this month, JEM is the one who is nearest and dearest to my heart. I used to watch the cartoon when I was a kid and dream of the day I could have pink hair and be a rock star!

SHOWTIME SYNERGY!!!

Day 14: Aladdin

Aladdin is one of my all time favorite Disney movies. It’s neck and neck with Lion King for me. I must have watched it over 1,000 times as a kid and still continue to watch it as an adult (though since the death of Robin Williams it’s been much harder to watch it without crying uncontrollably!)

Which is your favorite Disney movie? We all have one (or 4.)

Day 9: Fairy Godmother from Disney’s Cinderella (1950)

Everyone’s always giving all the love to the Disney Princesses, ok…I know…me included.  But what about the supporting characters who make the Princesses’ stories happen. Like…for example…Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother. We don’t know much about her, but we know that without her Cinderella would be up a creek without a paddle, if you will.

And another thing. We know Cinderella is Becky with the good shoes, but dang, if the Fairy Godmother didn’t have her own exquisite taste in footwear, would she really be giving Cindy such a great pair of heels? Women with bad taste in shoes don’t give shoes as a gift. I’m just saying…Fairy G Mom is probably rocking a pretty epic shoe closet back at home. With that in mind…here is my take on Cindy’s Fairy Godmother, mind the shoes!!

Day 7: Rapunzel from Tangled

Today’s thrift store cosplay is a minimalist version of Disney’s Rapunzel. It’s more of a bounding, if you will. For those of you who have never heard of Disney bounding…look it up. It’s a simple way of representing your favorite characters at work, at Disney…basically anywhere you are, and still seem like a fairly normal person to the outside world.

This outfit could easily be worn anywhere and people would not automatically suspect me of cosplaying. That’s the beauty of Disney bounding, it’s more of an internal cosplay and the people who get it are the ones you discover to be kindred spirits!!

Day 4: Spongebob Squarepants

There will a few times in this series where I will stray from my coveted vow of only using thrift store, consignment, resale and vintage clothing. Sometimes I’ll use things from my closet purchased long ago or I’ll turn to the closets of those closest to me, my mom, my dad, my aunt Becky and my Granny.

Today was one such instance…I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of brown Spongebob shorts, when I remembered a piece of clothing hanging in my closet already. A brown wrap skirt my mom had made when she was younger, that she bequeathed to me. Rather than spend extra money on a different pair of shorts that might better represent Spongebob, I opted to make use of that vintage (mom probably wouldn’t like that I call it vintage) skirt. And voilá….Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

Day 3: Dory from Finding Nemo & Finding Dory

Full confession, i didn’t see Finding Nemo when it first came out in theaters back in 2003. And by the time I finally did see it, the movie had been over recommended to me and hyped so much that actually watching it was a bit of a let down. People were telling me that it was better than Toy Story…settle down, people!

I enjoyed Finding Nemo just fine, but it was the character of Dory that quickly became my favorite. So when she got her own sequel movie last year, I was pumped! I mean, who could ever resist Baby Dory? Who, I ask you who??

Plus, Finding Dory introduced me to one of my new favorite Pixar characters, Hank the septopus with his snarky, cranky attitude and his seven tentacles! Maybe I’ll even thrift store cosplay him one day!!
