    February 20, 2011 - Dapper Day at Disneyland

    So on Sunday, February 20, 2011, was the first Dapper Day at Disneyland event. Organized through Facebook, this event was loads of fun (but had a much smaller attendance than expected).

    So what exactly was Dapper Day? Well, here's the info posted on the facebook event page:
    Spend a day at the park in high style.

    The original Disneyland designers frequently populated their renderings with guests who appeared dressed for a day of sophisticated entertainment - because this was Disneyland after all! A new, highly developed, exhaustively detailed entertainment experience. No flip-flops or cargo shorts here! These were men in sharp suits, toddlers working two-pieces, and ladies looking like pages from Dior's sketchbook - all as if a visit to Disneyland were on par with a night at the opera. And why shouldn't it be? That's what this day is about, realizing those designer's dreams that Disneyland be seen as the upscale escape that it is, filled with guests dressed appropriately for it.
    This event was loads of fun! I've always wanted to dress up to the park and this event was the perfect time to do it. Below are some of the pictures from the day:

    Added Note: If any other micechatters participated, feel free to add your pictures

























    This was the first of this kind of event that I know of, but hopefully in the future, it will be better marketed and more people show up properly dressed for the occasion. For now, you can visit the DAPPER DAY for more pictures and hopefully for more info on future events.

    What a great fun thing to do! Well it was only the first year, so a small turn out is ok! That just means the next one will be even bigger! Love the pictures, and of anyone else has any more that aren't on the official FB page I'd love to see them!

    Had I known about this, I totally would have been there! Granted, I've been to the parks dressed in business casual (pencil skirt, high heels and all - and that's when the Dapper Dans finally picked me to be in the show squee!) for a few hours at times, but never for an entire day. Since I love to dress up, this is something I would totally do, as would my friends - we'd go all out.
    "Look there she goes, that girl is so peculiar...with a dreamy, far-off look, and her nose stuck in a book..." Yep, that would be me!

    I tend to post in a thread and forget to check it ever again, or even worse, I kill it. Yay me.

    Haha. It sure was! I loved being able to walk around the park and spotting others dressed up and just saying funny lines to them like "You look very dapper today" and just conversing about the other people we saw.

    I love the pics, I have seen a lot I had some friends go and do it, but I had to work at the park and was not able to attend. I wanted to so bad though, but I will def go next year. Have you thought of turning the pics into B&W? Wonder what they would look like that way. =)

    Ooo b&w pictures. I havent tried it yet but will do it sometime tomorrow and will share my results if I feel they turn out looking good. When I first heard of the event, I right away knew I wanted that sepia faded look of early color images so black and white skipped my head, but I'll definitely try it out. Thanks for the suggestion.
