I'd freak if you did the Eeveeloutions (especially Flareon!). I'd totally work it, or at least try to!!!!

I would totally just DIE from happiness if you would make a disney villain themed pinafore!!! especially one of jafar and ursula or a disney side character like GENIE :D

I was wondering if you could make a steampunk themed pinafore XD

Have you considered any Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) inspired pinafores? Or The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices?

DisneyWorld and Baymax

Hello! I'm finally back from my dream vacation to Disney World and just thought I'd share a couple of my Disneybound  outfits  =3  I've posted most of the pieces on deviantArt, but I figured I'd post the actually looks being worn  =3

I met Hiro and Baymax at Hollywood Studios and was totally stoked to be all dressed up for it! I'll have to upload pictures of the meet and greet later since the Hiro cast member was extremely involved. He showed Baymax my backpack and everything  ^_^ And, yes, his inflatable hugs are awesome!

My Jack outfit was short-lived since it was crazy windy that day. I ended up having to change into jeans (yuck!) and a parka since my Californian body can't handle anything below 70 degrees. It's okay, though; I made up for it by wearing my Edward Elric cardigan underneath the parka!

I wore Donald on our last day at Magic Kingdom. While I only really wore the hat for pictures, the whole thing worked out great for a day of rides and fun!

P.S. There is a small chance I might bring the Baymax backpack to the store.  I just need to decide if it's worth offering since it takes a long time to make.

Such gorgeous work! I've been watching for a while, but too shy to comment.

Your planned outfits for your trip to Disney World though... I love seeing how these can work in everyday situations too. I've only ever been able to imagine using them for cosplay, but now I think I might start saving up, and hopefully catch one of your sales in the new year!

^_^  Thanks so much! I actually wear a lot of the pinafores and skirts around for every day fashions. They actually work surprisingly well outside of conventions if you style them correctly. It's all in the accessories!
