Closet Cosplay with thredUP: Meg from Hercules


I’m back from VidCon and Disneyland, and I did things right: In one day, we rode fifteen rides, caught three evening shows, and had a delightful dinner at Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue, and I did it all in this cute Meg-inspired outfit.

thredUP, an awesome new online consignment store, offered me the challenge of putting together a week’s worth of outfits from items found on their site, and I upped the ante by challenging myself to create a week’s worth of outfits inspired by movie and tv characters. It’s closet cosplay in the most subtle sense.

I loved getting to embody the sassy Meg with this cute dress from Banana Republic, and decided to use some of my existing Greek and Greek-inspired accessories to complement it. I encouraged my whole group to dress up in Disney-inspired outfits as well, and even those who wouldn’t normally be the “dress-up” type were happy to find subtle influences for their outfits. If you want to do the same, I recommend checking out DisneyBound for inspiration!

  1. Very cute! It looks comfortable too. Also, really like the eye makeup.

  2. Thank you! It was comfortable, but I was a bit scared after our first water ride–the dress gets soaked and clingy very quickly!
