Dress-Up

Being a kid was fun and easy. But when you are a kid you don't realize that and instead you wish for grown-up things. Now that I'm an adult I WISH I didn't have grown-up responsibilities. Paying bills, going to work, taking out the trash...blah blah blah. Playing dress-up sounds way more fun. Hmm...guess I would have to work at Disney or people would think I was crazy. I'll just live vicariously through kids who get to wear these amazing costumes by wovenplay. Kids enter a world of imagination by becoming a knight, cowgirl, pirate, butterfly, and many more cute ideas. What would you dress up as?

Oh for me it's a butterfly every time! Or a rainbow warrior... with wings. Always wings. And I clearly am crazy 'cause I throw or encourage fancy dress parties whenever possible and love to dress up. Now if I could just hand the bills, work, trash over to someone else to take care of... :)

I'm with you on the wanting to play dress up! I want to be a belly dancer in a sultan's court! Complete with figs, dates and heaps of honey and feta cheese to eat in between sessions :)

I hear you sister. Being a grown-up is not so fun, and I often wish I could trade in my adult card for a ticket back to kiddiehood. As a kid I had the most amazing cowboy and indian costumes, and loved playing dress-up in them. As an adult I think I would like an invisibility cloak, then I could wear it and walk around like a complete goof-ball if I wanted to and no one would notice.

I used to LOVE to play dress up! My grandmother had great old 40s and 50s dresses she let me use for dress up... along with FUN costume jewelry... I wish I had those dresses TODAY... I would be wearing them... they were FAB! I remember them like it was yesterday... thanks for bringing up GREAT memories!

Anything with a long flowing skirt or cape works for me. But I do like the little knight's outfit above. How sweet.

Stephanie said...

I always liked pretending I was having adventures in my regular clothes, like the kids in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Ironic, I know.

I love that cape, though!

Savvy Mode SG said...

Munted kowhai said...

Sara Christine said...

Eeek! How precious. It's rare to find a non-Disneyfied children's costume. These are so inventive and give a kid lots of room for imagination. Great find!

aimee said...

with girls ages 2 and 6, dress-up is a daily scene at our house! not quite as fancy as these beauties, but it's still fun.

The Lil Bee said...

So sweet. And different! I like that they are totally unique designs.

Jan said...

Those need to be hung in a fab play room. Those are darling.

Jules said...

Tartelette said...

I loved playing dress up! I was always either a princess, a nurse or Spiderman :)

Courtney said...

Playing dress up does sound way more fun. Those costumes are all adorable, and I would take the tutu in heartbeat (although that knight costume is pretty adorable too!)

Being here is always an adventure. My girls like to put together make-shift outfits for dress-up and dramatic play. I'll have to show them these gorgeous costumes. They'll go bonkers.

And I hadn't known about Do Not Leave Unattended. Oh, the riches! I feel a post coming on....

L'Atelier said...

so much fun! honestly i never wanted to grow up as a child- always thought they had the better deal... the only thing i wanted to do is travel and go on adventures- hence i had to grow up. dress up, anything with a sword and a magic wand, i wanted to be something like a warrior witch.
think ill still go for that- sooooo many possibillities ;)
love the cute stuff, would def get some if i were a kid or had one

Sharon said...

too cute!!!ahh costumes, well, I was once dressed up as a fairy(kiddo and totally unaware of what was happening)I never got the chance to try out... 'angel', with the halo and wings and all. Do you think I(the adult me) can pull it off?:P

malinda_at_animegirlie_dot_com said...

Oh I LOVE The cowgirl outfit!! so cute.

Don't be fooled - you only get to dress up for work at Disney if you work in the park ;)

A Day That Is Dessert said...

Great costumes - we love dress up at my house!

Stella said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely!

erin@designcrisis said...

citysage said...

I love these costumes! I'm a big dress-up girl----Halloween has always been my number one favourite holiday.

I'd dress as a ballerina in a tutu every day if I could!

Mrs.French said...

I have been admiring woven play for a while now...oh how I would love for b to have the entire collection...xo

fly tie said...

i hear ya...

i attribute my recent constant eating of peanut butter off a spoon to a subconscious attempt to return to the care-free days of my childhood.

shill said...

i always want to be peter pan, all these costumes are adorable :)

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Yeah...I'm kind of over being an adult. :-) I'd rather dress up...as Wonder Woman.

Abby said...
