Since I’ll probably never get to organize my own book themed fashion show, I’ll have to keep making these collages instead.
After I had so much fun the first time, I came with a new round of book inspired outfits 😀
1. Alice from Alice in Wonderland
I couldn’t make an Alice outfit without the blue dress, thought instead of an apron I chose a white cardigan, to make it look like the Disney version we all recognize. My favorite accessory was the ‘cheshire’ cat bag! And I couldn’t decide between the white rabbit earrings, or combining a red rose earring with a white one for the painting roses scene (so I added both!). I’m not so sure about the black shoes, sure I have gone with flats??
2. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
Luna’s has been my favorite outfit to create! I tried to keep the essence of her wardrobe but without making it look like a cosplay. The first thing I added was the lion sweater because of that giant lion head she wears to support Gryffindor. I also found this weird and cute cork necklace by Kate Spade that instantly reminded me of Luna! I added a blue scarf to make it more Ravenclaw-ish and, of course, her raddish earrings.
3. Thranduil from The Hobbit
Thranduil’s outfit was a special request by a friend. It was kind of difficult because I couldn’t capture the elvenking’s essence with normal everyday clothes. So I went with a more formal approach. This silvery dress with gold details definitely reminded me of his outfit in The Hobbit movies! I combined it with twig and leaf accessories to make it more Woodland inspired. I also added a pot of eyebrow makeup because his eyebrows are basically his main feature. And a reindeer watch that reminded me of the reindeer-like animal he rides.
4. Lady Amalthea from The Last Unicorn
I started this outfit because I wanted to use the unicorn necklace. And of course Lady Amalthea came to my mind once I started to think about unicorns. Her outfit is the simplest one, but I think it’s also the cutest. I would wear it to go out this Sunday and feel like a princess! I added a pink hair piece to make a nod to her pink unicorn mark, and a pink unicorn watch that I’ll be adding to my wishlist.
What do you think about these bookish outfits? Is there anything you would have done differently? Also, let me know if you have any requests for the next time! 🙂
