This is a blog between two friends and their affinity for all things Peter Pan and Tiger Lily. Disneybounding, Halloween costumes and whatever else we can imagine (or afford), we'll dump all our love for them here!

 

See everyone at Dapper Day tomorrow!

Even though it will be miserably hot, we are both super stoked to meet up with friends hopefully make new ones! See all you beautiful people there!

We have had a couple questions regarding if we are attending Fall Dapper Day or not, and the answer is YES! <3 
We are very excited to be attending another wonderful Dapper Day surrounded by our amazing friends (and hopefully new ones, too)! This little doodle by yours truly (Venia/Tiger Lily) is a preview of our outfits for the Fall event. They are subject to have little tweaks here and there, but overall, they’re pretty close! 
We really hope to see some of you Tumblr peeps there and would love to meet and mingle! Friends and fancy clothing, what can be better?

Do you ever go to Walt Disney World? Or just Disneyland? Do you two live in Cali? :) and you wouldn't find it weird if you got stopped by random tumblr fans of y'all? (:

We’d loooove to go to Disneyworld, but we haven’t had the opportunity just yet. Some day! So, yeah, for now it’s just Disneyland for us (we live within driving distance). And we wouldn’t mind at all! We like running into people. If you ever see us in the parks, please come introduce yourself and we can chat!

my friend (who i recently informed about disneybounding) was just talking to me about what if there was a disneybound olympics and i was like "omg i know just who would take gold" (obviously you guys!) but as i was looking through your pictures, i had to ask, are you guys going to be attending the dapper day fall event in september? i hope to meet up sometime and i'm thinking that might be the best day to track you guys down haha! hope you had a nice day! (:

Gah, our hearts are melting with your kindness! Bringing honor to Neverland with some Olympic gold, baby! Hahaha. But seriously, it means so much to us that you like our outfits! We do it for fun and the fact that we can make friends through them is even better! As for Dapper Day in September, heck yeah we’re going! New outfits, too~. We would love to meet up! If ya happen to see us, do not hesitate to stop us! We would love to chat and mingle with ya.

Hi, just wanted to say I love your styles! I'm gushing over everything you've done. So how did you get into disneybounding to begin with? anything that motivated you in particular to start?

Thank you so much, we’re glad you like what we put together! We have always loved Peter and Tiger Lily, and we actually started out with just making our own headgear (Tiger Lily’s headband and Peter’s hat) and wearing that when we went to Disneyland. Once we caught wind of disneybounding, we jumped aboard since we love being creative with clothes anyway. We just looked for pieces of outfits here and there, then went all out for Dapper Day a few years back before there were db meet ups and all that good stuff. So, yeah, guess you could say our love for Peter and Tiger Lily was our first motivation and inspiration~

You guys are totally amazing! (Thank you so much for the advice before, I did my first disneybound recently with your helpful tips! :D) I also had some ideas that I was wondering if you could help me with? When you create outfits/actual pieces (gluing, sewing etc) from scratch, what's the planning process you go thru from start to finish; ex: if you say to yourself: "A vest would look great on this chara," how do u proceed from there, like what goes thru your mind?Thank you so much in advance!!

It’s awesome that you were able to Disneybound and put something together! Isn’t it super fun? As for putting together pieces, it is really dependent on the situation and what skills we can apply to it. Most if the time we see a piece of clothing and then decide to embroider, alter, or paint on it because those are the simplest ways to add just a little something to an otherwise plain piece of clothing. When it comes to making actual outfits from scratch (which is mostly only our Dapper Day ones), we research what type of clothing could fit the character and what can give some illusion on their original outfits. Nautch is pretty amazing at sewing so she makes up her own patterns and throws it together for us. I usually help with the finer details such as painting or hand sewing things. We hope that helps some!

You guys looked adorable in the park today, I wanted to stop you guys for a photo but I queuing for pirates

We weren’t Disneybounding (which is why we didn’t announce we would be in the parks) so it’s actually pretty awesome that you still recognized us! Too bad you were in line. It would have been awesome to say hi and chat a bit! Next time, yeah?

It's like a dream where Peter and lily wher come frome the XXI century ^^Thank you very much. Hope see some of your work soon .Have a good day ^^ (nb: sorry for my bad english i am french >o<)

Thank you so much! That is one of the sweetest things we have ever heard. We are so glad you like what we do and are excited to show more outfits that we come up with! Thanks again for the kind words and encouragement.

Did someone say Peter Pan theme for today?

Just threw together some Tiger Lily and Peter outfits real quick for today’s theme over at Disneybound~

Also, it's great that Lily is a curvier lady (like myself) and she doesn't let that stop her gorgeous fashion inspirations. It's a wonderful love yourself message.

Venia (Lily): No matter what, you’ve got to strut! Hahaha. I do believe it isn’t about weight or anything like that. Be unique and choose what fits your body type! Not to mention that I constantly have a second opinion to go to when it comes to the fit of things (thank you Nautch~). Thanks so much for liking my style! I really do work hard on it. I have a pretty awesome Peter to be in the arm of so I have to bring my A game!

poppinamollie asked
I love you guys a lot. You two remind me of me and my best friends. <3 I definitely wanna Disneybound Peter, Wendy, and Tiger Lily together with them, you two are so inspiring.

Isn’t it awesome to have people to share dorky stuff like this with? Hahaha Love to you and your besties!

DisneyBound Disneyland Meet-Up THIS SUNDAY!

disneybound:

Click the link for all the details! Can’t wait to meet all you wonderful people!

We’ll be there! We hope to see old friends and meet some new ones! Be sure to say hi if we run into each other~

katie-bell92 asked
Do you post when you're having photo shoots? I'm going to California for the first time in May, and would love to schedule my Disney day on a day I know you two will be there

We usually post on here when we are going to be at the parks, but if you have a specific day(s) where you will be there, maybe we can work something out! Our passes are valid everyday but Saturday and major holidays.

Dapper Day Spring 2014! It was so much fun seeing with old friends and meeting new ones! Everyone was so sociable and lovely, it was great talking with you all~

We made the decision to scratch up some new outfits for this spring last minute, but we’re pretty happy with the results. Nice and warm (as though it’s ever actually cold in SoCal), at least we each have lovely coats now!

As per usual, both outfits were designed and made by us with great love and labor.
