Welcome back! I went to the Spring Dapper Day Expo at the Disneyland Hotel and it was a very enjoyable outing. It's a retro fashion expo that showcases clothing, jewelry, hair products, handbags, and all kinds of items. A lot of the attendees wear retro outfits at these events. This expo seemed more scaled down compared to the last one I attended, but it was still a great experience. You can take a look below at the merchandise and outfits.
Oak Tree Farms had an awesome selection of shoes and boots. They would be great for western or steampunk cosplay. I'm going to check out their website because some of their merchandise might be appropriate for my outfits. You can find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest @oaktreefarms. Their official website is www.oaktreefarms.com.
Pinup Girl Clothing had some really cute clothes for women who enjoy 1930s and 40s fashion. I just saw clothes at the expo, but you can purchase other items online, including jewelry, handbags, make-up, swimwear, sunglasses, belts, etc. https://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/
I felt impressed with Side CCA. This vendor had a massive amount of merchandise. Side CCA has a store in Pasadena and another one in Burbank. You can also find their merchandise at www.sidecca.com. Take a look at my photos. It will give you a good idea of their selection. My family actually bought some items from this vendor.
It was nice to see Pamela again. She runs a hat business called Pamela's Vintage Millinery. Pamela is the one who obtained my steampunk workshop in Big Bear. It goes to show that you can meet awesome people in the most unexpected places. Her merchandise would be good for anyone who enjoys cosplay or retro costuming. Some of her hats would be fine for formal wear too. Visit www.pamsvintagehats.com to purchase her products.
This was my second time running into Philip M. Chavez. He makes various products out of leather. It's kind of refreshing to see a vendor who sells merchandise that would work for men. Dapper Day usually caters to women, so a little variety is always cool. Check out www.pmchavez.com/ to buy his merchandise.
Initially, I took a picture of this couple because they had neat outfits. Apparently, they were also selling merchandise at the expo. They're an independent distributor of make-up. The business card name was True_Lip Ladies. They gave me a booklet that listed quite a bit of merchandise. Most of their products would be fine for every day use; not just for costuming and elaborate events.
Akori Design has really cute and whimsical items. I find the merchandise unique and appropriate for certain themes. You'll get a good idea by looking at my photos. You can also find out more details through www.akori.design.
I'm going to end this gallery with several photos of attendees, including myself with a 1950s Ford Fairlane. People wear really interesting and cool outfits at the Dapper Day events. I had my red mafia outfit this time. A very special thanks to everyone who participated in this blog post.
I hope you enjoyed the pics. Watch out for more posts in the future. Leave a comment if you want to say anything about the Dapper Day Expo. Be safe and have a good week.
